lol I'm not really into new releases, and I know it was a 2017 title, but I picked up CoD WWII late last year. With me and Dubs
having played it most of this year. I thought the multplayer was great fun for me as I only played with scoped rifles. The game was quite raw so movement and aim skills allowed me to shine and I would often finish in the top 3 every game. I didn't like some of the overpowered kill streaks and close quarter weapons, as well as constant tweaks by developers changing un necessary things. But hey, thats modern Call of Duty! Always the same. Overall it was a lot of fun!
We have now moved onto Black Ops IIII's battle royal mode Blackout. This is something totally new to us former promod players. It's very fast paced and you need to work with your partner seamlessly to win! We have won a few games and have a lot highlight clips. I want to make a youtube video one day....
Also, a rom hack for my favourite childhood game has been released for Pokemon Crystal. Dubbed "Crystal Clear" Essentially, it's the ultimate classic Pokemon game. An expantion on gamefreaks original game. New features, all whilst being true to the original. All 251 Pokemon are present and can be caught! As well as the game being open world! All of the restrictions have been removed and you can explore the entirety of both the Kanto and Johto regions straight away. You can play as new characters and there is so much more but I am trying to keep this brief. Just google Pokemon Crystal Clear as there is lots of coverage for it as the community has gone crazy!
I'm always re living games from my childhood too. My Playstation 2 is currently set up and I have been enjoying Midnight Club 3: Dub Edition Remix. A fantastic early 2000s street racing game.
I've played a few games on Black Ops 1 (PC ofc) this year. All high scoring with 3.0 k/d ratios. So much fun. I really like the world and the pace of that game. I can't believe its 8 years old now!
I've also had the time to appreciate our Crossfire server this year. Something which I never found interesting when I was younger. Played a lot of high scoring games earlier this year too!
As most of you know I played CS:GO. Started in 2014, but quit in 2016. I think I might start playing again next year. As I miss those times, but the maps are a lot different now. Valve have been busy making the game more "up to date" to visually compete with other titles and show what their engine can do. But it's still true to competive and skill based play. I have played a few hours training movement and aim. I look forward to returning and making youtube videos again!
Well, theres no mention of me playing any official new relases in this post... But I thought I would post my about my activity this year. Maybe next year I will do the same! Thanks for reading such a long post!
