GoukiJones' Fortnite 2018 Review

By: goukijones Jan 14, 2018 | 1 Comments

Borderlands and Zombie Base Defense game fans should take a look at Fortnite. It's super fun!

We are a little late to the party playing Fortnite.  For whatever reason, when Fortnite came out, I didn’t play it. I was probably playing something else.  Recently, Fortnite went on sale again, this time we all made the purchase.  Oh man, do I regret not playing this game sooner.  First of all, I did play the Battle Royal for a couple of weeks and have some first place finishes under my belt.  However, I never made it over to the PvE.  We in there now.  And I think it’s incredible.

Can 2018 produce better video games than 2017?!

#1 Red Dead Redemption 2
This game is a former Jimmy Gem Game of the Year.  Just recently, well 2 years ago now I guess… I played Red Dead Redemption again and it still holds up and is still one of my all-time favorites.  Rockstar only releases new games every 5 years, so get hype!  RDR2 is going to be the game of the year. (No specific release date as of this post)

#2 The Last of US Part 2
When the first game came out I did not expect that I would like it as much as I did. In fact, I played through it twice.  It's one of those rare games that I played back to back immediately and I can not wait to play the new sequel.  Another strong potential for game of the year. (No specific release date as of this post)

#3 Anthem
Oh boy. EA.  The game is being made by BioWare and published by EA.  I love all the Mass Effect, Star Wars Kotor, and Dragon Age games, so I am hype for a what seems to be a full-on-multiplayer-space-scramble-mass-effect-shooter-magic-lootfest-madness.  So IF that works and it’s not full of buy a loot chest with real money bullshit, it might be a great game.  I think we can live without the loot crate system in video games.  Good luck to BioWare.  The entire internet is on standby, watching EA desecrate and ruin the history of great game franchises and developers.  Anthem will be very interesting to watch and play in 2018. (No specific release date as of this post)

#4 Crackdown 3
I can’t wait for this game.  The previous Crackdown games have great memories for me.  I would have never played Crackdown in the first place if the Halo 3 Beta wasn’t on the disc.  But I found that the climbing, shooting, leveling up, and the party system made Crackdown super fun to play.  When I wasn’t playing Halo 3.  Crackdown 3 will be an easy purchase for a bunch of friends and the game will be superfun to play together. Invite me. (No specific release date as of this post)

There were a few other games I noted, but overall these 4 games are the only options I believe, that can pull me away from the good games I am already playing.  When I started writing this list, I was for sure 2018 could be better than 2017. I’m now thinking that maybe it’s going to be a really rough year.  What’s up with that new Metroid?  Where is the Battle Royal Halo 6 game?  WTF is happening to the XBOX console?  Seriously tho...

What video games are you most looking forward to in 2018?

Thank you for reading.

GoukiJones' top 9 favorite games from 2017. Old and new.

#9 Halo Wars 2: was the first major release for me this year that I was really into.  The original came out in 2009 or something and I was still playing it up to the release of this new version.  I played the new version for a little while, but as I sit here and try to recollect my experiences… There isn’t much.  I don’t have much desire to play this game, it just seems to have way too much going on.  I’d try to play the original Halo Wars again before I booted part 2 up.

#8 Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age: This is my favorite Final Fantasy game of all time.  I was so thrilled to hear Square was planning to re-release this game in 2017.  I got it and beat it again.  Easily the FF game I’ve beaten the most.  I plan to go back in, one more time, to max out every character.  One of these days...
Check out my REVIEW

This is a review of my time with the beta.

This is one of the most beautiful games I’ve ever seen.  The sound effects are spot on and the entire presentation gives you a good feel of Star Wars.  I’m trying to say a few nice things before I absolutely rip into this game.  The shooting is fun, I didn’t play Battlefield 1, I wish had.  But in Battlefront 2 it definitely reminds me of old Battlefield games.  If you’re not aware of the zone and game type and where your enemies are, you’re going to die without even knowing wtf happened to you.

Let’s get this part of the issue out of the way.  There are loot crates in this game.  The loot crates have upgrades to all of your classes and cosmetics for all of your characters.  It is stupid.  If somebody dropped a few hundred dollars on the first day, there’s a huge potential of maxing out all characters and having overpowered Heroes.  As if the Heroes weren’t strong enough from the start.  You get one free crate a day.  Thanks!  You can earn credits to open crates while playing the game, but it seems like the max points you can earn are 150.  You can get 150 credits, by making finishing the objective, or not allow the enemy to take the final objective.  It seems more based on time then experience, because if you have 2 kills and I have 20, we both get 150 points.  So I just don’t understand, there is no incentive to perform, rather you just don’t quit. 

What’s with these gd pigeons…

When people ask me what is my favorite Final Fantasy, I tell them it’s Final Fantasy XII. And most people look at me like I’m crazy. When I ask if they’ve even played the game, and they say no. So… I’m telling you guys, you have to give it a shot.

This IS my favorite Final Fantasy.  The world is huge and connected all throughout, you can walk from one end to the to other.  Fully animated cut scenes and great voice acting bring the characters to life.  I love them all.  The story includes Final Fantasy Judges, Viera, magic, mystery, two brothers in conflict, betrayal, a lost boy, a thief and his co-pilot, a dead husband and powerful enemy.  I love this story. (Yes, I have actually watched the story cut scenes in this game.)  Most conclusively, the main reason I love FF12 is the combat has been my favorite design in any Final Fantasy.  The gambit system and programming your team to react in battle is a blast.  It’s the main element why I’ve played through it 3 times.  *3 times is a lot for me in my world of gaming.
