Before I begin, I'd just like to state that if you own a Wii U, and your friends with me, and it says I've been playing nothing but Netflix, ignore that. I hate Netflix, and my cousin has been using it on my Wii U. I do use Hulu Plus, but that's mostly on my PS4. Now then...

Xenoblade Chronicles X

Although I wasn't too big into the first Xenoblade Chronicles for Wii (and later the New 3DS), this game really sucked me in. It is absolutely massive in scope and scale, and could easily overwhelm a casual gamer. Fortunately, I'm not a casual gamer, but it STILL overwhelmed me at first. This huge open-world game tasks you with surviving on a new home planet after Earth is blown to bits in a conflict between 2 Alien Races. It gives you a basic goal to work towards, but being an open-world game, you can pretty much do as you please. Your not forced to progress in the story at some fixed pace, and can approach it however you want. Do you want to do Sidequests first? No problem. Feel the need to max out affinity with other characters first? Go ahead. You do have to do some basic plot stuff first, but that's to be expected, like doing the prologue in an Elder Scrolls game. As I mentioned before, this game is absolutely overwhelming, so I don't recommend starting it until your ready to put in a lot of time above any other game.

Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric

I think I've talked about this one before, but I'll go again. First off, this is NOT a bad game! People will tell you it is, but a lot of those people probably haven't even actually played it. While the character designs are a departure from previous Sonic games, and it's more about exploration than speed now, that doesn't mean it's bad. Also, a recent patch made it even better than it already was. I personally believe this is a new start for Sonic, and at the risk of making a pun, it really did start with a boom. Granted, it can get a little repetitive, but the boss battles keep it fresh most of the time.

Unfortunately, that's it for now. However, I can tell you now, that you can look forward to me going on about Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water next time.

Your cousin be chillin' with the Netflix, eh? Eh? Know what I mean, nudge-nudge? Say no more...

*AHEM* I've actually been curious to try out the Sonic Boom game, if only to see if it's as disappointing as some say it is. BTW have you given any of the 3DS Sonic Boom titles a spin yet?


I haven't actually been able to find the 3DS Sonic Boom game. I think I'm gonna have to download it off the eShop.
So, how far are you in XBCX?

Not too far yet. Chapter 5.
