I finished a few playthroughs of Gal*Gun: Double Peace in order to get my review up this morning when the embargo lifted, so it’s time to dive in to something else. Well, that, or go back to a game I’ve been chipping away at for what seems like an eternity.
Street Fighter V arrived from GameFly today. I was pretty adamant about avoiding the game until the roster was expanded, but EVO 2016 reinvigorated my love of fighting games to a level I haven’t experienced since the Killer Instinct reboot during the Xbox One’s launch. I’m really looking forward to checking out its (supposedly disappointing) story mode.
I uninstalled the King of Fighters XIV demo. I played enough to know that I like it, so there’s no reason for me to continue plugging away until the full release on August 23rd. I’m really impressed by how smooth it plays, but also came to the conclusion that I don’t like the character designs. Everyone looks like they fell out of a cancelled JRPG from the mid-to-late 2000’s, but that’s something I can get over. Either way, the demo served its purpose. I liked it, I want the game, so no reason to keep it on the HD.
I also gave up on the new Metroid Prime: Federation Force demo of its 3-on-3 Rocket League mode, Blast Ball. I’ll spare you the details of my disappointment, since I’ve already gone in depth about it here on the site.
I started playing through the original Legend of Zelda on NES the other day, which tends to be an annual event. It still holds up incredibly well. I have 2 dungeons left before taking on Ganon, so I’m sure I’ll finish that up later on today.
If I’m not absorbed by Street Fighter V this weekend, I may log in to World of Warcraft to check out more of the latest class changes that arrived with the pre-Legion expansion patch. Maybe not, though. I don’t have much incentive to play until Legion goes live next month.
Maybe I’ll go back to Persona 4 Golden for a bit, since I’m holding off on playing another meaty game until it’s out of my backlog. I really want to get back to Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE, after all.
Outside of gaming, WWE Battleground is Sunday. As many of you know, I’m a huge wrestling nerd and there was a big brand split storyline that occurred on Tuesday. It’s not very interesting, but I try not to miss any PPV events.
What about you folks? What are you getting in to this weekend?
