Honestly, Marvel’s Midnight Suns is a Blueprint for Future Titles.

It’s for good reason because it’s a formula that sells. Unfortunately, Firaxis’ formula didn’t so it but I believe it would be great for a larger group like The Avengers or the X-Men. As a matter of fact, it wouldn’t be that much different from Marvel’s Midnight Suns: just larger names and more heroes to play with.

Stardew Valley is Probably One of a Few Games I Can’t Say Anything Bad About.

At the moment, ConcernedApe is working on Haunted Chocolatier which seems like it will be in a similar vein but centered around a confectionary shop. However, something on the side in Stardew Valley such as the fishing or mining are worthy of their own titles. Hell, the Harvest Moon series kind of spanned the Legend of River King series and fishing was never so adventurous.

A Week After Diablo IV Season 4: Loot Reborn – How is It?

If you’re a Diablo IV player, share your impressions on “Loot Reborn”! Is it too easy? Did Blizzard give us too much grease? Or are you enjoying the game more than you did before? Let us know in the comments!

Manhwa Corner: Apex Future Martial Arts.

Despite that, they’re welcome tropes. The writer could’ve been adventurous and tried some completely out-there tropes and wasted a good series, so this is fine. The artwork is very good, again Solo Leveling and Volcanic Age are the two manhwa/manhua series where the artwork simply impresses me and Apex Future Martial Arts isn’t there but it’s still very good and gets better during fight scenes.

Pokemon Games Need an In-Game Day-Night System.

That’s not reality. You trample these trainers in record time. The solution is simple: have an in-game clock where the days change every hour or whatever but just have real time for promotions and events. I’d just like for these adventures in each Pokemon game to not feel like a brief career between when you get your first monster to when you defeat the Elite Four.

Manhwa Corner: An Introduction to Cultivation Manhwa.

Now take those two and put them together and you have something that is both great and overdone. Martial arts isekai is a safe genre to run with for a creator. There’s another element of this combo that makes this my undisputed favorite genre of manhwa: cultivation.

Looking Back at 2017’s Absolver.

With those two points, I’d say that Absolver is the start to what could be a good series. It’s far from bad but it’s not exactly a great game. It doesn’t seem barebones but it’s a pretty sparse world you’re diving into. In a potential sequel, I would like to see…civilization in the world of Adal. Also, being able to name skill combos and establish martial arts technique manuals and formal schools would be great.

The Nightmare Dungeons in Diablo IV Should Just Be Replaced by the Vaults.

There’s just something about going through a lengthy dungeon delve and getting an abundance of trash gear that smacks of time wasted. With the vaults, you can smash them, get some trash gear, but the sting just seems reduced significantly because you weren’t in there long. Even if the Son of Malphus or The Butcher pops up, it’s still not a “better bring a lunch” adventure.

But what do you think? Do you prefer the nightmare vaults or are you still team nightmare dungeons

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Its Skill Tree Are Worth Revisiting.

Of course, I still have to check out AC Mirage which I’ve heard is a return to core AC but as it stands with Valhalla—on just the skill tree alone and what can be done with it—I’d say check it out if you haven’t yet or give it a revisit when you’re browsing your backlog.

Legacy of a Legend: Akira Toriyama’s Timeless Impact on Manga, Anime, and Gaming.

Finding Toriyama’s other works piqued my interest in the other works of other mangaka outside of their popular work.

Rest in Peace, Akira Toriyama and thank you for being a part of my childhood—and adulthood—as well as those of many other fans’ around the world.
