Lola’s Ramblings is a feature on my blog Lola’s Reviews where I ramble on about a book related or a non-book related topic. These are discussion type of posts where I talk about a topic and readers can weigh in on the topic in the comments. Usually these posts are everything that doesn’t fall under any standard header, like tours, cover reveals, memes, challenges, recaps or reviews. Lola’s Ramblings posts are discussions of a certain topic and my point of view on them. The banner for this feature is designed by Michelle from Limabean Designs.
A while ago I got interviewed on Daniela Ark her blog and mentioned I was a gamer, a few people said they would be interested in reading some gaming related posts by me, so today I wanted to talk about 5 games I am really looking forward to. I included the game trailer for each game so you can see what I am talking about :). As when it comes to game seeing tells you more sometimes than words.
Yooka Laylee is the spiritual successor to Banjo kazooie and if you’ve read my post about ten games that make me feel nostalgic then you know about my love for banjo kazooie. This trailer feels nostalgic without me having even played the game as the gameplay looks to much like Banjo kazooie. It’s even made by some of the people who made Banjo Kazooie, so it has to be good right? It’s a whole new game with new characters, new adventures and new things to collect. Collect-a-thons don’t seem as popular anymore lately and I’ve really been in a the mood for a good collect-a-thon lately and I can’t wait till this one releases. And it just looks amazing already!
A Hat In Time
I can sort of repeat what I just said before by Yooka Laylee, so I won’t repeat that. I actually backed A Hat In Time years ago when they did the kickstarter for this game and it has just been announced that it will be released in 2017. Can’t wait to get my hands on this one. It looks like it’s going to be awesome. And they work with Grant Kirkhope, who also did the soundtrack for Banjo kazooie, so I am really excited about that. As I love the soundtrack for Banjo kazooie. And hat kid looks so adorable!
Final Fantasy 15
I always liked the Final Fantasy games, although I only played a few of them. It seems that with every game the graphics become better. It’s set the release end this month already, so the wait won’t be too long anymore! It looks like they go into quite a different direction than the other games, it looks more realistic and a bit darker atmosphere, but I think it will be interesting to see how this worked out. The gameplay looks great and the graphics looks stunning. And I think it even will be available on pc eventually, which is great as I haven’t been able to afford a ps4 yet.
Secret of Grindea
My boyfriend and I actually already own this game, but it’s still in beta, so after a few hours of playing we had to stop as there was no mote story at that point. It’s a very fun and addictive game that can be played co-op. Yes there’s a lot of grinding, but it’s fun as you get awarded for the grinding, like some special drop you only get in a small chance. And there are different type of spells and attacks you can do and you don’t have a class, but can pick and mix. So far the beta was very promising and I can’t wait till it’s finished.
This game just looks so fun and cute. I mean it has cute slimes and it sounds like it will be a fun game with exploration, growing crops and tending to your slimes. Looking forward to this one!
