I think I own Hellblade on both consoles and PC. And I’ve had them now for quite some time. Years, in fact. So I’m just a little bit behind in finishing it but that’s exactly what happened over the course of the week.
I have stronger feelings about Guardians Of The Galaxy, be them good or bad, than I do of Hellblade. My complaints for the former are far more numerous than those of the latter. Hellblade is just all around good except for some issues with combat. The game looks great, the story told is wonderful, the puzzles aren’t too difficult and the acting, voice or otherwise, is top notch. This game deserved every award, praise, and accolade it received. But Guardians is the better story. At least for me, the story in GotG had more of a pull for me. And I’m not really comparing these two. You can’t. I just happened to beat them both within like 2 weeks of each other. And the story of Guardians Of The Galaxy is still sitting with me.
I’m not yet sure where I’ll go from here. I never finished Horizon Zero Dawn and that sequel is just around the corner. Days Gone is another I’ve been curious about and there’s a few smaller games here and there to jump into and some that are just ways to pass time (Pedestrian & Hot Wheels). And there’s the return to Mass Effect as well. All before Destiny’s expansion takes hold in late February.
Not a bad problem to have really on where to go next.
I could always replay Splinter Cell. Speaking of…Ubisoft, it’s been 3,070 days since the last Splinter Cell release (non-animated series or guest spot in another game franchise, remake, or VR exclusive).
