This is my 7th post for Blaugust.
Oh dear, I’m only at the end of week 1 and I’m falling behind. I meant to post something yesterday, really I did. But I got caught up playing Witcher 3 for a few hours – I found Ciri, I must be getting close to the end, yes? Then I had some late night testing to do for work which went until well after 2am. So when I woke up this morning (can you call noon the morning?) I had no post for Friday.
Being in a bit of a rush, I’m going to go with one of the writing prompts. Void asks: What is your most anticipated game that will release in the next year, and why?
I’m going to have to go with Rise of the Tomb Raider. 2013’s Tomb Raider was one of the most fun games I’ve played. It wasn’t a game I liked for its deep and meaningful story but the gameplay, combined with some excellent visuals and set pieces, was so exhilarating. There was a particular sequence where Lara had to climb up this immensely tall tower and I felt like I myself was on top of the world. Super smooth controls made everything feel very natural and intuitive, and I just had a great time running around raiding tombs and shooting my bow. As long as Rise of the Tomb Raider offers more great gameplay, I’ll be happy.
I’m also looking forward to Fallout 4, which comes out on the same day, but I think I’ll be tackling RotTR first. I’m more excited for it and the fact that it’ll likely take me a fraction of the time that Fallout will is also a big draw.
