RE: The EZA Community Top 25 Best of 2017!
Shame it didn't get more votes, but it made it into the top 20 in a great gaming year at least. My #2 game of the year. New favourite AC. I've written quite a lot in the game's own thread, no need to repeat everything. The world is simply mesmerizing and the details depicting both the surroundings visually and the ways of life story-wise really, really good and interesting. Loved the changes in the fighting system and all that, Bayek's a great character and the story works etc. It was/is simply a joy to play this game when it comes to the feeling of discovery.
RE: EZA Personal Picks Aggregated ("The TRUE GOTY Rankings")
Thanks for gathering this! I, too, was left wondering about this kind of scoreboard after what Ian said in the final moments of the whole GOTY talk.
RE: Horizon Zero Dawn (PS4)
Bought The Frozen Wilds as it's on sale currently and returned to the game after 10 months or so. It took a good hour or two to get familiar with all the things again and just remember how things operate, but now that I've got around five hours soon in with the game again I gotta say the groove is on again! Such a beautiful game on many levels, I love this.
The new northern environment might sound kinda boring at first, thinking it's just all snow, but Guerrilla Games manages to create astonishing things out of this (too). I mean just now as I'm playing it's night, which is surprisingly dark, but as I'm climbing this mountain ridge the sky is full of aurora borealis that together with the snow cover create an amazing colour palette of turquoise, blue and white against the blackness. And at the same time it's snowing big snowflakes perfectly slowly all around me, which creates such a silence and peace that I'm just mmm! Pretty af!
The enemies are tough in this DLC. They've got this kind of an extra layer, so to speak, so the big ones tend to take a lot of damage. Granted, I'm still remembering ways all the time to overcome them more efficiently with different weapons I have, but they're still a scary sight to tumble upon. Luckily there's new levels to be had as well as new and more powerful weapons and outfits, so I'll bring some more ass-kicking eventually!
RE: WWE - Who is hyped!?
Paige's career might be over, the situation seems to be similar like with Edge. Brutal. And she just returned.
Otherwise, it's been really slow in WWE the past few months. Nothing too excited has happened, I think. However, now it's only two weeks before Royal Rumble, so the hype can slowly start rising.
As for the championship matches, I really don't see Brock losing here. He's going into WM as a champ. As for Styles, though? They might be really tempted to go for that whole co-champs thing with KO & Sami. What a weird thing it would be.
About the actual RR winner I have no glue at the moment. I mean, it would just kill me if it becomes the Brock/Reigns match in WM this way. Sure, they can have their match there, but please, don't use the Rumble match for that. Give us a surprise. Maybe from the SmackDown side, then. Though their roster is just so thin, I feel. I don't know. It feels useless to guess right now. Better just go with the flow when the match starts eventually.
It's cool that the women have their own Rumble match as well, but with 30 participants there'll have to be like a dozen suprise entrants from the past or NXT etc., and that just often feels so stupid as you know they're just pure filler. But again, maybe better not to think about it too much beforehand. Just hoping for an entertaining event.
