My 5 Most Anticipated Games in 2017

2017 is here and with it a gaggle of new games.  Here are the games I’m most looking forward too.

Resident Evil 7
Resident Evil is back and so is the horror.Early reports suggest that this is classic Resi although from a first person view point. As a fan of the series I am really looking forward to being scared silly once again.

Horizon Zero Dawn

A brand new PS4 exclusive open world adventure with giant robotic dinosaurs. Don’t know a awful lot about the story or characters but the trailers really got my attention, this game looks amazing.

Mass Effect Andromeda 

The 9riginal Mass Effect trilogy were 3 of the best game during the last generation. This isn’t really a continuation of the the original 3 games, rather it’s a separate story set in a new galaxy with the Human eprace and others looking for a new home.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole

A sequel to the surprising awesome South Park: The Stick of Truth. Cartman and co are back in a new adventure, this time they’re all super heroes.

Outlast 2

I love a good horror game and the first Outlast was one of the best in recent years. More horror shenanigans are bound to happen the sequel along with plenty of running away.


Things I Enjoyed In 2016 – Games

There’s a lot of these spread over both Xbox One and Playstation 4 (takes a deep breath). 

Best comeback award –  Final Fantasy XV

The Final Fantasy series is back on top form after many games of being mediocre to bad so yay! 

Best walking simply award –  Firewatch

Not a fan of the walking sims,  I usually find them dull and tedious.  However Firewatch has a interesting story,  great acting and is absolutely beautiful. 

Best FPS award –  Doom

Doom is back and is as gory and action packed as ever.  The single player campaign is the star here.  

Best remake – Ratchet and Clank

An absolutely stunning old school platform adventure that everyone should buy,  play and enjoy. 

Played the longest award –  Skyrim Special Edition

Currently over 100 hours in and still plenty to do. My archer/theif/Elf has plenty more adventuring to do. 

Best bit of time travel award – Quantum Break

Remedy sure like their strange stories,  but when they’re all of such high quality it doesn’t matter.  

Best racer –  Forza Horizon 3

Graphically the best,  it also plays perfectly with tonnes of content. 

Best 3rd person shooter – Gears of War 4

The fourth game in the Gears series succeeded where the Halo games failed. They had a really really great 4th game in the series 😂

My game of the year –  Uncharted 4

Nathan Drakes last adventure and as always it is full of stunning landscapes,  amazing set pieces,  wonderful character moments and loads of shooting. 


Things I Enjoyed In 2016 – Cinema

Happy new year readers of my little blog.  I still haven’t gotten into a blogging rhythm  and I fully intend to get on this in 2017. To start things off I thought I’d go through the films I saw at the cinema in 2016 and make up awards for them. 

Favourite Film –  Captain America: Civil War

The cinematic behemoth that is the Marvel Cinematic Universe has done it again with another amazing superhero film.  This one is a little different since it pits hero vs hero. 

Most Fun Film – Ghostbusters

The new Ghostbusters is not as good as the original 1984 film. However this does not mean it is a bad film at all.  It’s the film that put the biggest smile on my face. 

Weirdest Film – Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange is a seriously bizarre film,  there’s lots of weird stuff going on, yet somehow it all works. There’s some amazing effects that should probably be seen in 3D to be fully appreciated (I saw it in 2D). A great film and I look forward to seeing Doctor Strange in action again. 

Star Wars is still awesome award –  Rogue One

A Star Wars film with little to no force related stuff sounds crazy but works surprisingly well.  The story of how the plans of the original Death Star are obtained is action packed and contains loads of great moments. 

Better than the critics say award – Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad has a lot going for it despite what the reviews say.  Both Harvey Quick and Deadshot are both great characters and I look forward to seeing more of them in future films.  The action scenes are exciting.  The film does have its problems, it can be a bit muddled and the Joker is just bad. 

Batman,  Superman & Wonder Women in the same film award – Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice. 

This is one confused film.  It rarely makes much sense and is way too dark.  However Ben Affeck is great as Bruce Wayne and Batman also seeing Bats,  Supes and WW fight together was just awesome. 

Dumbass Superhero Film Award – Deadpool

Funny,  action packed,  moving,  stupid and brilliant are all words to describe the Deadwood film.
