Picture of the characters from the RPG, Final Fantasy XV

Gladius, Prompto, and Ignis do want they want.

I have a grievance. My last two role-playing games (RPG) experiences – Final Fantasy XV and Mass Effect Andromeda – are not satisfying me. They are great games and fun to play but the action-oriented focus of both sacrifices a key aspect of the genre – control.

This loss of control doesn’t happen when I’m playing as a lone wolf type of character. In games like Fallout or the Witcher, you’re the all-powerful hero who can conquer anything by yourself. However, when you are given a party or squad, you’re their leader. You’re supposed to direct them on the battlefield and tell them what to do. Except, recent RPGs have made your party autonomous. They do as they please and you have little say.  Continue reading

Does Overwatch Deserve to be Game of the Year?

As I browsed through my monthly Game Informer magazine, I came across an interesting topic within the Q&A section. The magazine recently released their top 50 games of 2016 list and it was obvious that some of their readers didn’t agree. Many of its detractors questioned their choice of Overwatch as their Game of the Year. The magazine has every right to name whatever game they felt deserved the top spot. However, the comments brought up something I haven’t thought about before – What makes a game the full experience? Continue reading

I’m not going to lie. I died a couple of times while trying to defeat this boss … but you don’t need to see that. Anyway, I had fun taking down this boss. Doom doesn’t have too many bosses. So this was a nice surprise.

Doom has become the best part of my weekends. Nothing relaxes the mind more than dragging your virtual knuckles through a demon’s skull. What I love most about Doom is how much it retains the feel of the original. It’s fast paced, unapologetic, mindless action makes it fun to power through.

Some good fun playing For Honor with friends last night. The struggle is real trying to take control of these zones. However, my Peacekeeper put in some work. I’ve really enjoyed this beta. Might buy For Honor soon after release.

Fireworks representing New Years, resolutions an gaming!

New year means new resolutions, games, and more!

If there is one thing my girlfriend has been bugging me about since the beginning of the new year, it’s goals. She doesn’t want me entering 2017 without me setting out to do something. And I agree, but it’s hard. Thinking about life and what not. So, I said to myself “Think about what you love,” and gaming came to mind. That’s why I’ve set out these gaming resolutions for 2017!

Playstation Experience 2016 Banner.

Were you satisfied with Sony’s Playstation Experience 2016?

I know I’m a little late but between work, the holiday’s, and a number other semi-odd responsibilities, I’ve barely had time to type for myself. But here we are. The Playstation Experience came like a roller coaster and boy did it hit hard. Last weekend’s press conference delivered, making every gamer feel like they just witnessed E3 2016 part two. There is definitely a lot to go over. Continue reading

Top 5 Upcoming 2017 Games I Want to Play

Is it too late to have 2017 games list? Nah, it’s never too late to have a 2017 games list. With the bizarre year that is 2016 almost up and the last of the year’s major AAA games coming out, I’m looking towards the future. And what better way to do this than picking out next year’s upcoming video games.  Continue reading

Tai from Digimon, hitting a computer screen.

If my television weren’t expensive, Digimon: Cyber Sleuth would make me hit it as well.

This game is killing me. And while the nostalgia hits me at 1,000, sometimes, it is just so incredibly painful to play. I suppose I should back up a bit and tell you how my experience with Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth has led me to this conclusion.

I’ve been playing this game, on and off, for a couple of months, and I’m not saying Digimon: Cyber Sleuth is a bad game. It’s actually really good. However, a few minor inconveniences taint the experience. I should start by going through some of the game’s good points. It’s a terrific old-school RPG, harkening back to the original Digimon games back on the PS1, making it pretty easy to grasp and play. Continue reading

Renegade Plays is Back!!!

Renegade Plays is back at it again with the writing personal opinions and stuff! Where did I go? Well, blogging is hard and doing it while in school makes it even harder. So, I took some time off to focus on school and work.

However, like I said I’m back! I’ve learned a few things and I hope to use that to bring better content, better writing and more unfiltered opinions to the blog. I’m a die-hard gamer, and gaming and writing keep a bit of my sanity intact. So, I’m not ready to give this up.

Here are a few new things to expect:

  1. I’ve learned a bit that consistency is key, so I’ll be posting at least two times a week (three if I’m feeling frisky).
  2. More timely and relevant post. So if you’ve heard the story around a few gaming circles, then I’ll most likely have something to say about it soon.
  3. More personal post, meaning that while I’ll still talk about the news topics that are interesting to me, you’ll see more post about my experiences as a gamer.

If you’re a fan of the site, then wow …. thank you for sticking with this lonely blog. If you’re new, then I hope you enjoy what you read. Games, news, and opinions: that’s what I’m all about, I’ve got a new layout, new stories, and more to come. Welcome to Renegade Plays. Hope you have fun!
