Haunted by her past, and coping with unimaginable loss and regret, the story explores Michonne across a three episodes of miniseries event. Players will dive into the mind of Michonne to discover what took her away from Rick, Carl, and the rest of her trusted group… and what brought her back.

In this premiere episode, ‘In Too Deep,’ Michonne joins Pete and his crew on the sailing ship The Companion as they cruise the coast for survivors and supplies. When a desperate signal for help draws them to a scene of horrific massacre, Michonne and the crew are lead further to the floating survivors’ colony of Monroe, which may just be harboring the person responsible for the carnage.

Call of Duty: Black Ops III Preview

With less than a week to the release of the much anticipated Call of Duty: Black Ops III, now is as good a time as ever to look at what players can expect from the newest entry in the series. Every year developer Activision’s highly successful franchise adds both new features and gameplay tweaks to continue to keep the long running series fun and exciting. This year’s entry seems no different.

Black_Ops_3_SP_In_Darkness_WM-720x405_4_620x322

Black Ops III seems to be continuing the series trend of taking place in futuristic environments, much like every title since Black Ops II, which is great in my opinion. Advanced Warfare and Black Ops II’s futuristic settings were the most appealing story-wise since the original Modern Warfare. The sci-fi aspects of these future battlefields allow for storytelling that is hard to accomplish with modern day settings. It allows the developers to develop new weapons and technology, that isn’t present in a modern day setting, to enhance gameplay. In this title the characters are even augmented, in a way reminiscent of Deus Ex, which should allow for interesting twists to gameplay.

One of the most interesting new features of Treyarch’s upcoming shooter is the campaign being designed for co-op play. Some of the fondest memories I have of the Call of Duty series are of the spec ops missions in Modern Warfare 2. Sitting on the couch with my wife playing the game split-screen, running through these missions, was extremely fun. I hope the co-op campaign structure of Black Ops III delivers the same level of joy.

Interestingly, there are two changes in the campaign that I find odd (though I can see purpose within the first of the two). All campaign missions will be unlocked from the get go this time around. Since multiplayer is the main aspect of Call of Duty games that most players enjoy, this new feature allows players to experience campaign missions that friends may brag about being great without having to play through the whole game. The second of the two changes is the exclusion of a campaign in last-gen versions of the game. Though this seems to be an odd design choice, it may be due to time restrictions.

After playing the beta for Black Ops III, I can say that the game boasts the same tight gameplay experience that fans have come to enjoy with the series. Black Ops III‘s gameplay felt similar to Black Ops II in my opinion, though it was much smoother and had a Titanfall-esque flare to it. Black Ops III allows for players to utilize jumping abilities similar to what we received in last years Advanced Warfare. Player opinion continues to be a split among fans of the series; some players loved the jump mechanics whereas others hated them. To me, the mechanic adds a new layer of strategy to the game and I am glad that it is returning.

There are also happens to be a lot more customization options available for players this time around. Among these options are super soldier classes, such as “Call Sign: Prophet” and “Call Sign: Nomad.” These two new classes offer special abilities outside of the regular gun customization or killstreak perks. It reminds me of the way your characters can have different abilities in titles like Borderlands or even Destiny—a welcomed addition should this new gameplay mechanic be balanced correctly.

The multiplayer experience of Call of Duty continues to evolve to keep the game fresh. Where some players may feel that old titles off the pristine version of the multiplayer experience, I enjoy the new experience offered every year with the various changes made to the series. As long as Activision keeps the experience fresh, Call of Duty will remain at the top.

Call of Duty‘s beloved zombie mode, Treyarch’s bread and butter, returns in Black Ops III as well. Every iteration of the series has offered some type of horde or mission mode since World at War was released and zombies is the king of these modes. Zombie mode is thrilling and nail biting, but remains fun. The teamwork involved has continually kept me coming back to Black Ops II three years since it was released and I hope that this version delivers as well.

This year’s iteration includes a progression system, which allows players to build up their characters and not have to start from scratch on every play through. This could be a welcoming addition, though half of the fun is earning power-ups throughout each match of zombies mode. Abilities this time are served to players through a bubble gum machine—which is campy, but so is zombie mode, so it fits. Like previous versions of this staple game mode, new celebrity vocal talents like Ron Pearlman and Jeff Goldblum are joining the fight agains the undead. Zombies looks destined to deliver.

All in all, the package looks well worth the wait, especially on current-gen platforms. The campaign is darker than ever, the multiplayer is fast and tight, and zombie mode looks like a blast. The Black Ops series has been a fan favorite since Treyarch established it, and this one seem like it will continue that tradition. November 6th is just around the corner, so we will see if they live up to the standards that have been set. But, as of this moment, all signs point to yes.

Disney Infinity 3.0- Review

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if Iron Man could fight Storm Troopers alongside Han Solo? Or, what if Donald Duck teamed up with Darth Vader to somehow save the day? I know.. You’re probably expecting me to announce that Marvel has made its way into the world of Kingdom Hearts….not today my dear reader. Today, I am here to talk about the revamped and exciting experience that is Disney Infinity 3.0.

Disney 3.0 focuses around a completely new group to the Disney universes and characters. One of Disney’s more recent acquisitions was Star Wars. The company has wasted no time in putting the franchise to good use and delivering longtime fans new and exciting additions to the franchise. Disney 3.0 is comprised of three level sets and a Toy Box Takeover level. All three are purchasable separately. For those who have purchased their games digitally, and for those new to the series and looking to dive right in, the Saga Bundle is available (exclusively for PS4) and includes a pre-release Boba Fett figure, the base starter kit (Twilight of the Republic,) and the Rise Against the Empire playset .

What we liked about Disney Infinity 3.0:

It’s Not Disney 1 or 2.0:

I don’t know about you, but I bought the first Infinity for the figures, the second one because it was Marvel, and I earned a total of two trophies between both. I found the original Infinity games to be lackluster and developed to please a younger generation. I don’t think Disney Interactive ever saw this appealing to the older generation. With Disney Infinity 3.0, I thoroughly enjoyed playing through the two playsets I received/purchased.

Infinity 3.0 boasts a replay value to it. Each mission is multi-faceted and, like past titles, offers crossover character gameplay. Levels are spot on and larger than previous indications which could, at times, appear linear and could feel playable once. This time around, side missions are included, and the rewards are stellar. Instead of slapping a new coat of paint on Infinity 2.0, the teams at Avalanche and Sumo digital have painstakingly re-worked and well taken care of this game. Fans of Star Wars and Disney Infinity alike will love this new version.

Community Creations:

You spend hours making levels, and you want the world to see them, rate them, and enjoy them. Okay, this is definitely a mode that will connect you with other members of the Disney Infinity community (which I have found to be a wonderful and very active) and play their levels. The cool thing about the Infinity community is the Infinity community. These levels are passionately crafted by teams and gamers alike! A very cool experience for those who are into crafting their own stuff. Also, a great way to continue your gameplay experience.

What We Didn’t Like About Disney Infinity 3.0:

Where Did My Money Go!?:

Disney Infinity is one of those titles that is really fun to play, there is no doubt in my mind about that. I truly enjoy both the nostalgia of many favorite (now) Disney characters and licenses. My absolute favorite characters are Sam Flynn and Quora from the Tron movies. The $30 dollars I shelled out on these characters was okay, but then… you cannot use them in your normal play sets and you have to buy the Toybox Takeover add-on. Don’t get me wrong, the concept is super cool, but the cost to the consumer could be an issue. Collectors won’t care, but the average family isn’t going to be able to afford $70 dollars for a starter set, $14 dollars a figure, and $40 a playset.

tron

The Verdict:

Disney Infinity 3.0 is fun for all ages. It has characters of Disney’s past, present, and future. This game will provide both returning and new players depth and customization found very rarely in modern gaming. If you’re a fan of Marvel, Star Wars, or Disney, make sure to check this one out, but beware the hefty price tag that comes with it.

Lego Dimensions E3 Preview

The Lego series is both a physical toy and a very unique videogame franchise. Both do very well, respectively, and I would say they share the same fan base. Lego Dimensions is their attempt at bringing the physical Lego toys and Lego videogame franchise together.

Certain characters and vehicles can be placed on a special pad and appear in-game. The items can even be changed in real life and be put in the game to serve a different purpose. Also, every character has a unique ability all their own and there is a huge number of characters available.

I watched a demonstration of the game, but didn’t play it myself so I can’t really talk about the controls. I will say that the powers and controls of the game seemed to be simple and required action both in game and on the pad during certain situations.

Without having played it myself, Lego Dimensions does appear to be an innovative and welcome addition to the Lego games. Without the interactive demo, though, flaws are usually pretty hard to see. The only ones that I could really tell was that the audio didn’t seem complete and things got a little jumpy at parts of the level. All in all, I cannot truly say whether this is a game to look forward to or not.
