[UPDATE] The title of the game is officially Red Dead Redemption 2 and not the rumored Red Dead Retribution.
Fans of 2010’s Red Dead Redemption have been clamoring for a sequel to Rockstar’s epic western adventure for nearly a decade now. Lately there have been a lot of rumors surrounding the inevitable sequel ranging from a leaked map of the game to Rockstar pulling the trailer for it from PlayStation’s E3 2016 Press Conference. Now Rockstar Games has changed the cover photos and profile pics on their social media accounts to a nice red and black suggesting something Red Dead related is on the way.
My copy of Mafia 3 arrived as I am in the middle of playing through Rise of the Tomb Raider (PS4) for review. Needless to say I have not been able to complete the game as of yet as I am trying to get the most of my first play through to make an accurate judgement. With that in mind, I have put roughly 10-15 hours in and here is what I think of it so far.

Whenever the subject of what I wanted to do with my life was discussed, not once was Journalism ever something I considered. I have always been an artist with a love for video games not reporting the news. I did however spend a considerable amount of time posting movie and video game reviews to my blog on MySpace (I know I have just dated myself) many centuries ago. It was then I was offered the opportunity to write my reviews for an upcoming, video game themed social network called PSN Friends. While the year or so I spent doing this did not spark an interest in Journalism in me, I did realize that my love of all things gaming needed to be channeled creatively and so I formed my own social network in 2009 called PlayStation Haven.

I loaded this game for the first time half expecting it to be a quick license cash in with very little substance. After all, games based on movies or television programs tend to be rushed with very little effort made to providing an actual fun experience. Attack on Titan proved to be an exception to this long-standing rule. Attack on Titan (AoT) is very obviously based on the anime of the same name. Large, man-eating, humanoid creatures known as Titans have forced humanity into hiding in a town with the large wall as the only real deterrent. Humanity has been safe within these walls for 100 years when all of a sudden a Titan with the strength to destroy the walls attacks and the town becomes overrun with the creatures. The game takes place within and even beyond the anime’s first season and puts player in control of different key characters throughout the span of the story. Continue reading Attack on Titan Review
