GP Picks 2/13/15
Salutations, and happy Friday one and all! This is the GP Picks, and this week it is brought to you by yours truly, Nightingale Silva! The weekend has started, and is in full force…and a gamer may think to himself “What games should I play this weekend?” Well, look no further! I am here to personally give you three picks for you weekend gaming, all of which are new releases this week, while I’ll also suggest an-oldie-but-goodie retro title to maybe take a stab at. So, shall we get started?
First up on GP Picks I give you Evolve, a game developed by Turtle Rock Studios, and published by 2K Games. The game released this past Tuesday, the 10th, on PS4, Xbox One and PC. In this game, you play the role of a Hunter or the Monster. And let me promise you, either way you choose, you won’t be disappointed. I recently picked up the game for my PlayStation 4, and I am in love. You have four Hunters to choose from: Assault, Trapper, Medic, and Support. And as for the monsters, the game begins with only one to choose, and that’s Goliath. After maxing out his perks, you will unlock the Kraken (my personal favorite), and after that the Wraith, and then Behemoth.
There are different game modes, each one fun in their own way, and you can play either by yourself, or take a stab at playing multiplayer online with others. This game is fresh and fun, and I know many gamers out there will enjoy it. I know I do.
Next up is The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D, an enhanced remaster of the original that released back on the Nintendo 64 in 2000. Majora’s Mask 3D used the same engine used to produce Ocarina of Time 3D on the 3DS, so the graphics are quite a massive step away from those of the N64’s graphics. The game is essentially the same as it’s predecessor, only boasting some simplified mechanics along with some elements taken away, while other cool elements were added on it.
This is a total must for any loyal Zelda fan that owns a 3DS, whether they’ve played the original or not. And for those may not have gotten to experience this game in it’s full glory back in the days of the N64,now’s your time to get in on what you’ve been missing!
Third on what games you should definitely check out this weekend is Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. Releasing today alongside The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D, you should go on ahead and grab this got your 3DS as well. Take Monster Hunting on the go, as you set out to slay all the monsters you can. Join friends via a Wi-Fi connection to team up and slay those monsters together! You just can’t go wrong with this hidden-gem of a series.
And as for my retro title…I’m suggesting the ORIGINAL The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. As I stated earlier, the title originally released back on the Nintendo 64 back in 2000. Take on the role of young Link as you set out to save Termina from certain destruction brought on by the Skull Kid. You have three days to do what you must before having to play the Song of Time to get back to the damn of the first day and continue on to stop the Skull Kid from allowing the moon to fall and crush the land and all that’s in it. Adventure through the swamp lands, the snow-capped mountains, the vast sea, and the canyon all in search for those who can help you best the Skull Kid and save Termina.
I highly recommend this, especially if you plan on playing the 3D remake, you should definitely play this one and see where it all started! And with that, enjoy your weekend, fellow gamers, this Nightingale is out! Peace, love, and video games!~
