    Game of the Year 2017: Jordan's Picks

    2017 has been quite the year for us gamers. Not only did Nintendo release the insanely successful Switch, but there have been a lot of quality games released as well, on Switch and just about anything that plays games. Even mobile devices have seen a few really fun games. But with so many quality titles coming out left and right, it was actually pretty overwhelming, and I simply couldn’t keep up. So, since there are still plenty of games I haven’t gotten around to playing yet, I’ve decided to make a less traditional Game of the Year list. Sort of like an award show, if you will. Anyway, enough stalling. Let’s get to it already… Most Addicting Mobile Game Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp I normally don’t put mobile games on my Game of the Year lists, but Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp felt deserving of that honor. It’s a simple mobile game, yet it has the same level of quality you would find in an official game released on Nintendo’s own consoles. And just like when Animal Crossing: New Leaf was first released, I just… can't seem to go a day without playing it at least a little… Best Spiritual Successor to Banjo-Kazooie Yooka-Laylee I’ve been a huge fan of the Banjo-Kazooie games since the day I played the original for the first time. So, when I heard that several members of the original team got together to create a sort of spiritual successor to the series (since, you know, new Rare doesn’t really seem to care much for the IP), you better believe I was excited. And I gotta say, Yooka-Laylee is pretty much exactly what I hoped it would be. I mean, it does have its fair share of flaws, but it’s still a really fun platformer for fans of the Banjo-Kazooie series (well, the first two, anyway), and it definitely satisfied my itch. Of course, Grant Kirkhope’s amazing soundtrack certainly helps. I still have a bit of an itch, though, so hopefully, Playtonic announces Tooka-Laylee soon enough… Best RPG I Still Need to Beat Xenoblade Chronicles 2 I know what you’re thinking, but hear me out. I may not have beaten Xenoblade Chronicles 2 yet, but I’ve definitely played enough to think it’s a really damn good game. Which is awesome, because the original was my favorite game of 2012 and it’s cool to see that the numbered sequel (Xenoblade Chronicles X was more of a spinoff, I guess) is also top-notch. It’s a great RPG with a beautiful world, an engrossing story, and an amazing soundtrack. Really, what more could you want? Most Terrifying Game I've Played All Year Resident Evil 7: Biohazard (VR) Oh man, this game. After all the complaints about the Resident Evil series seemingly forgetting its horror roots in favor of more cinematic gameplay, Capcom did an amazing job giving us an entry that was scary. And Resident Evil 7 is scary as hell. And not only is it a terrifying game in its own right; when you don the PlayStation VR headset? I lost count of how many heart attacks I had during my playthrough… Most Splatastic Shooter Splatoon 2 If you’ve played the first Splatoon, you’ll pretty much know what to expect from Splatoon 2. Not that that’s a bad thing by any means. The original Splatoon is an amazing game, and Splatoon 2 is basically a better version with more features and …probably more people playing, or at least soon enough since the Switch is selling like hotcakes (I still don’t know why that’s a saying). So, don’t you even worry if you haven’t played the original; if you have a Switch, get this game. It’s fun. Biggest Nostalgia Overload Sonic Mania Click here to read GP's official review It’s crazy how satisfied I was with Sonic Mania. Sonic 3 & Knuckles was always up there for me as one of my favorite games ever, so a game so incredibly similar, with stages not only from that particular game, but from other classic Sonic adventures, and with some original levels to boot, is exactly what I needed in my life. You can read my detailed thoughts in my review, but just know that this game is now up there right alongside Sonic 3 & Knuckles as one of my favorite games ever. Nostalgia is a powerful thing, isn’t it? Game I Didn't Expect to Be So Good Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle Like many people, I didn’t know how to feel when a Mario and Rabbids crossover was leaked. I just never really liked Rabbids. I always thought they were a little too annoying for my taste. But I felt hopeful once I actually saw what kind of game Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle was. And when I actually played it for myself, I was way more satisfied than I thought I would be. It’s insanely fun, and it even made me hate Rabbids a lot less. Seriously, it’s fantastic. Of course, Grant Kirkhope’s amazing soundtrack certainly helps. Wait, why do I feel déjà vu…? Best Game You Should Not Let Your Kids Play South Park: The Fractured but Whole I’ve been a fan of South Park since I was a child, even though I wasn’t supposed to be (so feel free to disregard this entry’s heading). I also enjoyed the games growing up, even though they weren’t exactly top-notch. But man, when South Park: The Stick of Truth came out, I was impressed by how much it seemed like I was playing the show. Not only that, but it was a really great game in general. And now we have a sequel in South Park: The Fractured but Whole (giggle). Which, wouldn’t you know it, is also a really great game. It has a different gameplay style to fit with the superhero theme, which I actually had a lot of fun with, and the humor is just as funny as you would expect. If you like the show, there really isn’t any reason you wouldn’t enjoy this game. Most Fun Globe-Trotting Adventure Super Mario Odyssey Ever since I was a kid, I’ve enjoyed just about every Mario game immensely. So, I never feel like I’ll ever be disappointed when a new one comes out. And one thing I love is when a Mario game demolishes my expectations. Super Mario Odyssey is one such game. I knew I’d end up having a lot of fun with it, but once I played the game myself, I was blown away by how good it is. Super Mario Odyssey basically takes everything I love about the series, adds a brand-new mechanic, and gives me one of the most fun experiences I’ve ever had. Seriously, I can think of so few negative things to say about this game, it’s crazy. Best Game of 2017 (That I've Played) The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Of all the games I’ve played this year, you’d think it would have been tough narrowing down which game I felt deserved the honor of my favorite game of 2017. But to be honest, it really wasn’t. I mean, it was kind of hard not choosing Super Mario Odyssey, since I had so much fun with it, but in the end, I just had to go with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. As the series’ first foray into the open world realm, Nintendo did an amazing job. Seriously, there were so many times when I meant to go to a specific place but ended up either getting lost or just getting distracted by a cool place I haven’t seen before. Or I’d find a shrine and feel obligated to check it out. Honestly, even though the series changed quite a bit from what we’re used to, I firmly believe that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a perfect example of what it means to be an “adventure game,” and a very fitting evolution of the original The Legend of Zelda adventure.

    Review: South Park: The Stick of Truth

    Developer: Obsidian Entertainment Publisher: Ubisoft Platforms: PC, Xbox 360, PS3 Release Date: March 4, 2014 Rating: M for Mature This review is based on the PC version of the game Whether or not South Park: The Stick of Truth is the game for you can be answered with this question—do you like the South Park TV show? If so, there's absolutely no reason for you not to pick up one of the most irreverent, crass, clever and humorously-written RPGs ever made. If not, then you should probably stop reading because this game takes South Park's signature mature humor to gross new heights; no holds are barred and Trey Stone and Matt Parker put it all out there, for better or worse. This is easily the best South Park game ever made and may very well be one of the best interpretations of a TV/movie franchise translated to the video game world. The Stick of Truth finds our motley band of kids attempting their own live-action role-playing game (LARP). The whole cast, from series leaders like Cartman to the more obscure folks like Mr. Hankey's kids, all make some sort of appearance throughout. Very few cameos are left out and a lot of the game's best moments come from surprise appearances and the hilarious quests they often bring. Players take on the role of the New Kid in town. He's essentially nameless, save for a nickname rank you'll have to discover for yourself. You can choose one of four classes for New Kid, ranging from the classic Warrior to the rather un-politically correct Jew. With a class name like the latter, you can guess how the rest of the game is going to play out. Gameplay is fairly straightforward; you navigate a faithfully re-created South Park as a 2D side-scrolling adventure. New Kid will normally travel with one companion of your choosing who'll provide the occasional quip or advice. There's a fast-travel system in place that unlocks more locations as you continue to explore. Most buildings can be entered (though some will have...interesting occupants) and will have various hidden items and quests available. Later on you'll also unlock an alien teleportation probe that allows you to reach previously unavailable spots. Battles are initiated by clicking and attacking enemies you come across or by walking up to them. Combat is turn-based, but with the addition of minor quick-time events similar to the Mario RPG games. Attacks are usually straight-forward and come with some fun animations. The best attacks are the one-off, single-use screen-clearers you can find by exploring South Park; the best of which is Mr. Slave's assault, but I won't go into detail on that as it has to be seen to be believed! Loot is also fairly stream-lined. You'll find or buy all manner of weapons, clothes, equipment and patches that add buffed effects. Some quests will require you to wear certain outfits, including the Goth clothes. It's an amusing nod to some of the unique characters you'll find and doesn't always feel like fetch quests. I seldom needed to buy gear as enemies often dropped better stuff for me to use. In Canada, you'll find even more equipment to use; you'll need to exchange American cash for the Canadian currencies. The quality of The Stick of Truth's quests is almost always stellar. Some battles can be on the aggravating side, but when you get to fight Al Gore as ManBearPig, it's hard to complain. Of course, the writing and cutscenes are especially well-done. In fact, whole game is basically one entire, 12-hour South Park episode. It matches the show's content and aesthetics so well as to be a near perfect interpretation of the source material. Not all of the game's segments are the most thrilling, though; Canada's portion coming to mind. While the trip up north is a fun tribute to old, turn-based sprite RPGs, there just isn't enough to do in Canada. That said, I'm still glad they included it because some of the dialogue is just as funny as the stuff you'll find back in South Park. It would also be nice if the super-attacks didn't have to be found each of the game's three days in order to use them but I'm just grousing at this point. As I've said before, The Stick of Truth is a near perfect translation of the South Park shows. The entire game looks exactly like the show and the attention to detail is astonishing. There are scores of Easter eggs for fans of the show, and South Park is never for want of comedic incidents. There are a few bugs that have likely been patched out, including rats not leaving certain pathways for you to advance or text not triggering properly. I did have one game-halting moment when performing an operation in a certain clinic (can't spoil it) as the game refused to register my button presses, though I finally managed to get around it and, ironically, encountered even more bugs right after. Not the most fun I've ever had, but the game was smooth sailing from there. The audio is also stellar, using the voice cast from the show. Its music is whimsical and perfectly suits the game's tone. Just like the audio and visuals, the writing is consistently excellent and somehow manages to make the game's jokes feel fresh and fun throughout the 12-hour playtime. It's not always perfect, and some of the jokes border on going well past boundaries, but then again, this is a South Park video game. Would you expect anything less? South Park: The Stick of Truth is incredibly accessible and offers a rollicking, hilarious, and shocking good time, and for around $40 (or under if you wait for a deal), you can experience one of my newest favorite games. While the combat isn't exactly deep and the humor can be a tad excessive at times, there are so many reasons to love a game created for the South Park fan. This is an adventure that knows no boundaries, either in taste or fun. Don't miss out! Pros: + Incredibly well-written and animated + Cameos are non-stop + Plays exactly like the show + Humorous plot and clever jokes + It's fan-service of the good kind Cons: - Humor can push a few boundaries - Older versions suffer from some bugs Overall Score: 9 (out of 10) Fantastic South Park: The Stick of Truth is an offensively amusing good time, packed with content and a love for the show.
  5. THQ, of Saints Row fame, continues financial woes despite their hit-sequel Darksiders 2 selling over 1.4 million units this year. The company closed studios and released a notable portion of their staff earlier this year, but continues to struggle as their finances ultimately overshadow their accomplishments. THQ buried within their most recent quarterly fiscal report the fact that their highly anticipated Role-Playing Game, South Park: The Stick of Truth, will not make its previously estimated March 5, 2013 deadline. The game is now scheduled for release at some point after April 1, 2013 in an effort to find the most financially advantageous date for THQ and allowing the game to reach its full potential as a market-ready title. THQ also postponed the release of Metro: Last Light and Company of Heroes 2 beyond the company's initially estimated release dates. Metro: Last Light and Company of Heroes 2 are now expected to find their way to consoles in March. These delays are just one step in a much larger scheme to improve the company's profitability, whose CEO is now exploring “strategic alternatives” to get their books out of the red.
