Battle in Tyria

Guild Wars 2

Lately, when I have some free time to spend it on the computer, I’ve been playing Guild Wars 2. I bought the game when it came out but only played it once or twice. I had only leveled my character up to level 25 at most. I worked on getting to level 80 (which I did) and now I’m working on doing map and activities completion whenever I have some time to spare.

It really is such a fun game, and it’s one of the prettiest MMOs I have ever played. The vistas feature provide such an amazing addition to map exploration and the cut-scenes they feature when they focus on a specific landscape, it’s just beautiful.

My main character (the one I leveled to level 80) is a Human Elementalist and I’ve had a blast playing with that character. The great thing about this game is that, compared to other MMOs, it was more options of things you can do that add a replay value to the game (I’m obsessed with jumping puzzles!). Right now, I’m trying to get 100% map completion and I’m at 80%, so I still have some work to do. While I do map completion, I’m taking advantage of special events that happen around the region that I’m trying to complete so I can win some goodies and money for the character.

This game definitely became my favorite MMO, I like it even more than World of Warcraft (and I was obsessed with WoW back when I played).

Injustice: Gods Among Us

I’ve seen a lot about this game lately and I finally played the demo this past Sunday. I fell in love with the game instantly, it uses the same engine as the latest Mortal Kombat game (released in 2011). This game will be based upon the fictional universe of DC Comics. I was impressed by the graphics and movement. The characters can interact with environment items to attack the other player, which I think it’s super fun. Apparently, fighting games are on the rise again, but I enjoy that since those games are super fun, especially when playing with friends.

Injustice: Gods Among US

The demo only had three characters: Wonder Woman, Batman and Lex Luthor. My favorite from the demo was probably Wonder Woman, her attacks were fun and quick. From what I saw, there is going to be a mechanic similar to the “X-Ray” in Mortal Kombat but I didn’t figure out how to use it. The characters that will be featured in this game are:

  • Aquaman
  • Ares
  • Bane
  • Batman
  • Black Adam
  • Catwoman
  • Cyborg
  • Deathstroke
  • Doomsday
  • The Flash
  • Green Arrow
  • Green Lantern
  • Harley Quinn
  • Hawkgirl
  • The Joker
  • Killer Frost
  • Lex Luthor
  • Nightwing
  • Raven
  • Shazam
  • Sinestro
  • Solomon Grundy
  • Superman
  • Wonder Woman

 

The game will be released (NA) this next Tuesday: April 16. I don’t think I’ll be able to get it right away but I will try to rent it so I can play at least some of it. Here’s a gameplay trailer:
