What Does Battlefield Need To Be?

We're mere hours away from a huge Battlefield announcement and rumors are swirling all over the net. Some say they're taking it back to the World War era while others are thinking maybe an HD remake of the Bad Company Series. I'm here to break down what it needs to be and what it can't be.

They cannot jump the shark and go to space like COD. Battlefield, unlike COD, has always been known for its realism. They have never been about crazier, faster or just flat out absurd. The Bad Company series gave us destructible environments that solidified it as the goto franchise in the FPS genre.
They have to go back to what made us love the franchise in the first place. Gameplay that rewarded teamwork. The best memories I have of Bad Company were those moments where everyone in my squad was filling a role that led to execution of one goal. The moments when four individuals move as one like a flock of birds floating in the sky is harmony at the highest scale.

Sure Dice has made some mistakes in the past. I mean did anyone really like that Cops and Robbers thing they called Hardline? What about when they removed the ability to easily squad up with your friends in BF3? Companies make mistakes, but the best companies learn from those mistakes. I have faith that DICE is ready to bring the Battlefield franchise back to the glory days of Bad Company and when they do, I'll be ready!

Review: Bug Fables: The Everlasting Sapling (PS4)

Paper Mario but with bugs (not the technical kind).
Bug Fables: The Everlasting Sapling makes its inspiration obvious just from looking at a screenshot. The art style pays homage to the Paper Mario series and the rest of the game follows suite. The first two Paper Mario games were traditional paper turn based rpgs, and the series has shifted away from that formula since. Bug Fables sets out to create an experience similar to those early entries in the Paper Mario series.

Any fans of the classic Paper Mario games will feel at home playing Bug Fables. Besides the art style, the combat will feel familiar right away. Your party has three characters who will be with you for the entirety of the game. You take turns attacking with each character having their own unique strengths and weaknesses. Each character fares better against specific types of enemies. A unique mechanic this game offers is the ability to give your attack to another character. The penalty is that each subsequent attack is w…

Review: Moving Out (PS4)

Watching my children play together is one of the permanent joys of my life, but it's not a joy I experience as much as I use to. As they grew older they grew more apart. This is a normal thing so in those rare moments when they come together to play, laugh and argue I get to relive their younger years and they don't even know it.
Like most people my family has been in quarantine for the past weeks and 3 of my children are old enough to live away from home. What use to be family weekend dinners with a few video games mixed in became a text messages and phone calls. Week's went by without seeing them. I could tell our youngest was getting bored and whenever he heard us talking to one of his older siblings on the phone his ears would perk up and he would inevitably ask if they were coming over. We would have to say no and he would slump back down and continue doing whatever he was doing. As the quarantine orders have been lifted and we are finally able to venture out and my ki…
