When it comes to game development and a new console generation preparing for the release of a new console, it’s not uncommon to see games get rushed out of the door in order for fans to have a game to play.

Review: Cuphead – You’ll Need to Blow Steam

cuphead_title_art


Pros:
+Astoundingly well done audio and visual designs leading to a truly authentic experience
+Boss levels are never the same with bosses each featuring their own mechanics as their fights proceed
+Customizable controls are a delight to have and offer players a way to build the games control scheme to match what they prefer.

Cons:
-Insanely difficult no matter what difficulty you choose a mission on
-Controls without customizing are a nuisance and do not play in the favor of the player.

Forza-7-Screenshot05


Pros:
+By far one of the best looking games available to date
+Offers one of the most realistic racing experiences available
+Graphic quality and overall performance is astonishing regardless of platform
+Loot boxes are done right and do not prevent a players overall enjoyment of the title

Cons:
-Career mode does feel a bit off-center, forcing players to save credits to purchase cars, and locking their progression behind such tedious manners


When I first started Forza Motorsport 7, I’d expected something I’ve been familiar with in many ways. First, I was expecting moderately amplified graphics, utilizing the power of the Xbox One or my Nvidia GTX 1060 GPU. Second, I was expecting a moderate collection of cars that would help bring my experience to the forefront and push my immersion to all new levels. Third, I was expecting Forza Motorsport 7 to be slightly problematic with the implementation of loot boxes.
