From my time with the banal tutorials to spending hours in online matches, I would say that at this state, it’s disappointing that Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker under-delivers on its fun factors, as well as any content that could prolong its longevity.
“While still not quite an SSD in terms of speed, the brand new Seagate FireCuda drives are a clear improvement from both of its predecessor lines, and are a good deal at only a fraction of the cost of a 2TB SSD.”
My revisit reminded me that the first Dark Souls is the perfect showcase for why this franchise blew up into a huge success some years ago - it has the best overall batch of content we’ve seen yet from the series.
Some might be bothered by Moonlighter’s grindy nature later on, but I found it to be a fantastic mix of dungeon crawling and a fun store management gameplay that made Moonlighter a treat to experience.

While it never manages to slake the thirst for narrative depth promised in its marketing, Far Cry 5 still provides an open world that is ultimately the most satisfying that Ubisoft has delivered to date.
Capcom has succeeded in making the Monster Hunter franchise more accessible than ever without sacrificing the quirks and features that made this game popular among its fans.This could arguably be the best title in the series, and it sets a new high for gamers that love the endgame grind.

Sledgehammer Games revisiting one of the most horrible points in human history with a campaign that shows the horrors of war, a multiplayer experience that retains the quick, close-quarters combat that keeps player glued in their screens for hours, and a cooperative mode that requires exploration and teamwork to survive waves of Nazi zombies. This shooter is far from perfect, but...
Battle Chasers: Nightwar is a turn-based RPG, a genre you rarely see in this generation. This was a great take on the classic formulas with an appealing art style that translates well into a videogame with a few issues ruining the momentum of this 40+ hour adventure.
Nintendohas introduced a ground-breaking mechanic never before seen in any Mario game - the slightly creepy ability to possess and play as Mario’s foes by capturing them with a ghostly friend.

Drifting Lands is a unique mix that would incite the hardcore and those that are fans of the action RPG and Shoot'em'up genres. You will find plenty of challenges in what Alkemi has created. Diversity in enemy patterns are plenty, but repetitiveness can be found elsewhere.
