Extinction| This isn’t a Triple A game and shouldn’t cost like one

Extinction developed by Iron Galaxy Studios releases tomorrow on April 10th, 2018 on Xbox, PlayStation and PC.

Extinction was revealed back at E3 2017 but since then hasn’t received much marketing or promotion at all and this is advertised as a triple A game. Based on the gameplay showed, the size of the game and lack of marketing and promotion, this game is pretty much an indie game and doesn’t warrant the $60 buying price.

The concept of the game is pretty interesting as I wanted to see a western take on the Attack on Titan type of games but the execution of the game is terrible as every stage of the game is based on the same repetitive nature of saving civilians then fighting massive ogres that are all taken down in the same manner. The system requirements of the game is 3 GB, 3 GB is nowhere near the size of a game priced at $60 compared to other triple A games.

The total playtime of the game is somewhere around 4 hours and has no music what so ever based on what is being showed off by early copies. But there should be music right? Since Jeff Broadbent & Tina Guo worked on the music on Extinction unless that’s just not true.

So, Extinction is pretty much a scam for $60, and based on what early copies has showed off, it should be at most $10. Hopefully, the music is just a glitch and a day one patch will fix it but that still doesn’t fix the lack of content and repetitive mechanics of the game. Overall, no one should be buying this game for $60 and believing it’s a triple A game making this game in my opinion to be dead on arrival.

Also, the developers are saying the game will have a season pass meaning there’s going to be DLC but I hope that isn’t the case because this would be a trend for games that launch horribly with the promise of becoming better with time.

Sea of Thieves | The Kraken

In Sea of Thieves, they tell tales of a mystical creature called the Kraken. The Kraken is a random rare encounter in the world of Sea of Thieves and can only happen when a full crew of 4 is present.

When you encounter the Kraken, the Kraken will encompass your ship with 8 of it’s tentacles. During the fight, the Kraken will aim both the players and the ship itself. So, it’s important to pay attention to your ships health or your crew will end up sinking. The most vulnerable part of the tentacle is it’s head.

Unfortunately, defeating the Kraken only rewards an achievement and no actually in-game loot but the experience itself should be rewarding enough, right?… nope.
