Read Play Blog is back for another month of gaming! Our question this month is: What is on your gaming wishlist? Recommend something to gift to a friend!
My Gaming Wishlist
Seeing as I just bought a lot of the PC games I wanted to play (such as Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and Battlefield 4), this list will consist of a few 3DS games, my poor 3DS XL which is gathering dust.
1. Game of Thrones (Telltale Games)
As you guys know, I’m a massive Telltale Games fan and the latest installment is based off our favourite epic fantasy – A Song of Ice and Fire! I’ve heard fantastic things about this new release and that it retains all of the intrigue and characters are true to their nature. Can’t wait to discover the new family too.
2. Animal Crossing: New Leaf (3DS)
I literally bought my 3DS to play Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright, which I haven’t finished yet. I loved how addictive Animal Crossing was, and how you didn’t need to sink a massive amount of time into it every day just to get through it. I find it relaxing just maintaining your town and meeting all of the cute characters 🙂 plus visiting friend’s villages as well!
3. Phoenix Wright: Dual Destinies (3DS)
I haven’t even finished Apollo Justice or started Miles Edgeworth yet, but this will be on the list for when I get around to it. I LOVE the Phoenix Wright games, they are my favourite ever and I’ve heard this is awesome!
Christmas Recommendation: Tales of the Borderlands
I just played the first episode of this one (it’s a 5 part episodic adventure) and it was completely HILARIOUS! I was literally in tears because it was just so funny! It’s a Borderlands spin-off, even if you haven’t played Borderlands before, I think you’ll enjoy this one because it’s a standalone story. Featuring a cocky Handsome Jack wannabe called Rhys, and a smarmy con artist called Fiona, the two will work together on a heist in the dangerous world of Pandora. It’s so much fun, and so easy to play too as an interactive story! Gameplay pretty much revolves around choosing dialogue, quick time events and watching it all unfold.
Best of all, it will suit the console or PC gamer in your life and I think all types of gamers, from beginners to hardcore will enjoy it simply for the fun and zany story.
Here’s my full review of the first episode on MMGN.
Currently Playing: Skyrim
This is probably not a surprise, but so far I’ve sunk 44 hours into Skyrim and it feels like I’m getting nowhere. I have to work myself up to play the game because it just goes on forever, which is why several months later I’m still playing it. Borderlands Pre-Sequel arrives this week though, so chances are I’ll be playing that in the coming week.
Next month’s question: What games are you looking forward to in 2015? – post your answer, recommendation & currently playing on the 16th or anytime during the month and link up!
