Another week, another Round Up.
Last night I finished the Main Scenario Quests for FFXIV: Stormblood. The entire experience was amazing and the final trial was a very cool throwback to Final Fantasy 5 (thanks to my brother Brett Jones for that insight). I haven’t been feeling the greatest so I’ve been slacking in the writing department. The good news is there’s lots of exciting things coming out, so I’ll be making some more frequent posts. Does anybody even read these things?
Baby Driver releases tomorrow
Edgar Wright is back at it again. The film is getting rave reviews and could end up being the surprise hit of the summer. I’ve always loved his films and it looks like this one will deliver. Hope to have a review out for it this week.
FFXV: Episode Prompto out today
I’ve just started playing this about an hour ago (apparently Season Pass owners couldn’t download the game for free until after maintenance). It’s been pretty glitchy the first hour, so I took a break. Should have a review up for it tomorrow. It’s pretty interesting considering it’s a shooter. I could see myself playing a full Final Fantasy game like this if Square Enix ever decided to make one.
Deadpool 2 starts filming
We’ve got one picture to show, and that’s all we need. Check out those shoes! Can’t wait for this bad boy to come out next year. I’m looking forward to seeing Cable in action. I was really hoping Deadpool would show up in Logan, but we can’t get everything we ask for. Maybe we will get a battle between the two in the future.
Rise of the Necromancer pack out for Diablo 3 today
For $15 you get the new Necromancer class and a ton of cosmetic stuff. It’s great that Blizzard is still supporting this game. I think I’m going to give it a go and make lots of shit blow up.
SNES Classic announced for release this September
This is very cool. I hope Nintendo provides more consoles to the masses. The NES Classic I honestly never saw once in stores. Let’s hope more people get to purchase this. It’s a shame we don’t have a choice on whether we want this or the Super Famicom version (that one’s just so beautiful). Be sure to check out my post on the list of games available and my thoughts on the whole thing.
That’s it for The Round Up, until next time! – NVJ
