Coming This Week, 07/23/18The banner is waved for the last time.07.23.18 - 6:34 PM
"Running around at the speed of sound... I got places to go, gotta follow my rhythm!" Yeah! I'm in a good mood. Not only is Octopath going good, but we also have Monster Hunter: World coming out on PC in a couple weeks too! I am going to have no time anymore. However, let's not focus on the past or future, but on the present.
I figure I should combine these together, as two Banner Saga entries would be weird. Well, I say that, and we have a Banner Saga package that has three games in one package. This year, The Banner Saga got a nice release schedule on Nintendo Switch, just in time for the third game to be released on the 26th. I've talked about Banner Saga at length, so I don't know what else to say: if you played the other Banner Saga games, it's time to finish the trilogy. Check out our gallery for Banner Saga 3, as well as our review and gallery for the first game, not to mention our review and gallery for the second one.
I know I say this every time, but this is a game I haven't seen before which has a 2.5D isometric view, an action-based battle system, and 16-bit graphics. It looks good and is filled with more 80's cheese than an episode of Stranger Things. And now you can bring it on the go with the powerful Nintendo Switch, which has the stellar combination of HD Rumble and Blast Processing... wait, that last one was something else, wasn't it? Anyways, go have a blast with it. Also, check out our gallery.
Well, that's it for this week. Other notable titles that you should look out for that aren't RPGs are the Mega Man X collection and No Man's Sky Next; No Man's Sky because it has multiplayer now and being on a new system might revitalize it, and Mega Man X because I know someone on our Podcast team who is really excited for it. Anyways, I'm going back to playing Octopath. I'm about halfway done now. As always, stay tuned to RPGFan for the greatest in RPG coverage.
