Stormblade's 5 most anticipated games - No. 1

By Stormblade - Posted on 06 October 2015

No. 1 - Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate

TaDa! I know, I know, you’re all surprised. Me choosing an Assassin’s Creed game as my number 1 most anticipated game. Although it is rather obvious, it wasn’t necessarily a slam dunk. Assassin’s Creed: Unity was a major disappointment. Oh, I played it all the way through and enjoyed it for the most part. Unfortunately, I had HIGHLY anticipated it, especially after loving Black Flag. AC Unity was so broken at launch it was unplayable. Also, the idea of cooperative assassins missions just never resounded with me (and I was not alone). My son got it for me for Christmas 2013 and I didn’t actually play it until this past Spring.

Stormblade's 5 most anticipated games - honourable mentions

Honourable Mentions

I decided to enhance the suspense of revealing the No. 1 pick by listing some games that didn’t make my list, but will probably end up in my collection anyway. Of course, the only way you don’t know what the No. 1 game is would be if a) you don’t know anything about me at all and b) did not pay attention to the game box covers in the banner. Whatever, going for suspense anyway.

There are so many games coming out in the near future, it’s easy to feel like a kid in a … er … ebgames shop. Here’s four that just fell short of my list.

No. 2 - Star Wars: Battlefront

I have not been this excited about a Star Wars games since ... oh man ... since X-Wing vs. Tie Fighter. That was 18 freaking years ago!! (pauses to contemplate old age...).

That being said, it was a great game. It felt like you were in the Star Wars universe. Or at least the part of it I enjoyed. I have never been that keen on being a Jedi. It was always the epic battles that I thought were cool.

Stormblade's 5 most anticipated games - No. 3

By Stormblade - Posted on 03 October 2015

No. 3 - Rainbow Six Siege

In a simpler time when cooperative video games were fun and the Herd of Cats always got along, some of the most fun we had playing together was playing Rainbow Six Vegas. Okay, it's possible we didn't always get along, but we really did have fun playing Rainbow Six Vegas.

In fact, if you look through the Lexicon of Death, many of the phrases listed there came from our days playing R6V. This was during the heady days of the initial CoD games, which were the cause of one of the most dangerous mistakes in R6V. This was to 'mistakingly' throw a grenade when trying to crouch. The reason this was a problem was in Rainbow Six, friendly fire was on. One had to pay attention for single word phrases like 'crap!', 'dammit!', or 'oops!' and then one had to run. Fast. The fact that we were able to get anywhere in this game with friendly fire on is still amazing to me today.

Stormblade's 5 most anticipated games - No. 4

By Stormblade - Posted on 02 October 2015

No. 4 - Call of Duty: Black Ops III

There is only one reason Call of Duty: Black Ops III is on this list. It's been a long time since I have been a fan of multiplayer in the Call of Duty franchise, so that is certainly not the reason I am anticipating this game. I am also not particularly interested in the single player mission, although I will probably play it through.

No, there is only one word to describe why I am anticipating this game and why it ends up number 4 on my list. That word is: Zombies. Treyarch's take on zombie multiplayer has no equal. Ever since it first appeared in Call of Duty: World at War, the zombie maps have been the reason that I have remained loyal to the Call of Duty franchise.

This will be Treyarch's first attempt at zombie mode on the Xbox One and it's exciting. Bringing in new maps with new characters as well as reintroducing old maps with our favourite Nazi Zombie hunting quartet, elevates this title from a resounding ‘Meh’ to an eagerly anticipated game in my eyes.

Stormblade's 5 most anticipated games - No. 5

By Stormblade - Posted on 01 October 2015

There are a bunch of games coming out for the Xbox One over the next few months that will hopefully rid us of the drama of the last couple of weeks. It will be nice to finally have games available to us that we can play together and that don't suck. I'm really hopeful on the ‘don't suck’ part.

I decided to make a list of the games that I am most anticipating so that everyone else knows where I stand. I hope some of these games will also appeal to other clan members, but these are games I will play anyway no matter what the rest of you do.

Without further ado, on to number 5:

Sega Nite - More GTA V Heists

By Blackwalt - Posted on 30 September 2015

Requested independently by two separate individuals (neither of them me)

We managed to finish off our last GTA V heist last week. Time for the next one.

Despite my appreciation of the Xbox One version and its improvements we will be playing the Xbox 360 version. Unfortunately none of the experience, money or stuff that I earn will carry over to my One version. While you can still play both versions, once you transfer your character to the new version they become separate entities.
