Xenoblade Chronicles 2 – Unfortunate Story of Fan Service

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 – Unfortunate Story of Fan Service

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 has delivered dozens of hours of excitement so far and there’s still a ton to go. Even with some of the sub-par reviews this game received because of the fan service, it’s still a quality experience. It shouldn’t turn people away if they’re looking for a great, classic feeling JRPG.  Both Gigs and Mack are engrossed in the story and gameplay, glued to the Nintendo Switch with no chance of slowing up soon.

The Nintendo Switch has been killing it with games this year. Developers, publishers, and gamers alike are surprised about its success. Even with the reviewers taking off points, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is still a grand experience any JRPG fan can enjoy.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 – The Unfortunate Story of Fan Service

Walking through this gigantic game, the Gigamax crew is blown away by the story. Pulling every trope from the book of anime tropes, they somehow feel right at home. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 embraced many more anime elements when compared to the previous series. This kind of art style and narrative direction are right up Gigs and Macks alley.

Again, this game holds true to many of the JRPG elements that make the genre so great but oftentimes also keeps people at bay. There is very little hold handing and it’s relatively text-heavy. If these kind of games are for you, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 might be worth considering.

The Darwin Project – Let’s Play Page

The Darwin Project – Let’s Play Page

The Gigamax crew begin their adventure with The Darwin Project thanks to receiving an Alpha key for Steam. Jumping on the brand new Gigamax Gaming PC, Gigs and Mack were ready to see what this new Battle Royale game had to offer. The crew was not disappointed with what they saw.

A New Take On A Beloved Game Mode 

A much smaller and confined experience when compared to other Battle Royale games like PUBG or Fortnite, The Darwin Project is something completely new. 7 players to a map, the game is focused on survival rather than conflict. Players are tasked with staying alive in the harsh, frozen environment. Building a fire is a necessity and upgrading your weapons is a must. Periodically, a hexagonal section of the map will turn red and become uninhabitable. Players will need to work around this obstacle and take refuge in the rapidly shrinking map.

There’s no telling when The Darwin Project will be available to the public. The Gigamax crew will be keeping a close eye on this game as the small, Alpha experience lived up to expectations. Even for an Alpha, there were only a few changes we noticed need to be made. The future looks bright for The Darwin Project.

Call of Duty: World War II | Let’s Play Page

Call of Duty: World War II | Let’s Play Page

Another year has passed and that means a brand new Call of Duty for gamers around the world. The series has faced some harsh criticism in recent years but is still able to maintain a loyal fan base. People were sick and tired of running on walls future warfare and there was finally a change after so many years. Sledgehammer Games brings the Call of Duty franchise back to their origins with Call of Duty: WWII.

The recent game met mixed reviews but the market told a different story. Selling more than Advanced Warfare, the game seems destined to leave a strong legacy. Its campaign was something out of an HBO special, depicting a classic story of the WWII American hero. Faced with adversity and tremendous obstacles, he has to dig deep to get through the horrors of this chaotic war.

Classic CoD Multiplayer

Multiplayer is the classic Call of Duty experience everyone has come to enjoy. The fast-paced action and minimal downtime keep gamers coming back for more. Eliminating running on walls and all those other future antics keeps things on an even playing field, creating a much more enjoyable experience overall.

Can’t Forget Zombie Mode

Zombie mode has come a long way since its inception. The intricate map and unique boss takes a while to get through but it’s rewarding nonetheless. Recently the Gigamax crew was able to work their way through this treacherous Zombie mode so there’s something special coming soon. Be sure to check back here for the Zombie tutorial!

Thank You For Stopping By!

Don’t forget to check in with this playlist page for even more Call of Duty: WWII episodes. From playthroughs to tutorials, the Gigamax crew has big plans for the future of this game!

Super Mario Odyssey – Let’s Play Page with Gigamax

Super Mario Odyssey – Let’s Play Page with Gigamax

Well, the time came for Nintendo to reveal their latest Mario game to the world and people lost absolutely lost their minds. Super Mario Odyssey was a welcomed addition to the Mario franchise and nearly every Mario fan agrees that this is up there in terms of the best Mario games to ever release. Something completely unique and unlike any other Mario game, Nintendo truly delivered an amazing experience.

This has been the year of Nintendo and releasing this massive hit continued their winning streak. The Nintendo Switch has allowed this incredible company to take this classic character to entirely new heights. Not only is it great to play as Mario once again on Nintendo’s most impressive console in years, but it’s an incredible game through and through. Even if it wasn’t Mario in front of the controls, the game itself can go toe to toe with any platformer on the market today. From each unique kingdom to the puzzles and amount of content, gamers can enjoy hours of Super Mario Odyssey without getting bored.

One thing has been consistent in terms of criticism, people were asking for more Kingdoms. The campaign may not be the longest but after finishing the core game, it doesn’t end there. There are 999 moons to find throughout all the Kingdoms and some are rewards of challenging tasks. Some of these challenges open up after the campaign is completed but others are only available once a player reaches a certain amount of moons. This creates an incredibly addictive meta, calling for players to scour the amazing Kingdoms for these little hidden tasks.

Super Mario Odyssey is much more focused on exploration rather than running through the story. The open world layout and hidden secrets around each world truly put the gamer in charge of their own adventure. Nintendo delivered something special to gamers with Super Mario Odyssey and the gaming community couldn’t be happier. It’ll be exciting to see what comes next for the Mario franchise but one thing is for sure, the world will still be searching for those 999 moons for quite some time.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus – Let’s Play Page

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus – Let’s Play Page

The Wolfenstein franchise has been around for over a decade and gamers were ecstatic to hear about this latest title. Staying true to their roots, MachineGames was able to get people excited about a single-player first-person shooter game. The genre has been scarce in modern gaming as most fps’ focus on the multiplayer element of their games and the campaign is usually an afterthought. Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus knocked it out of the park with their take on the experience and it could have a bigger impact on the industry as well.

Publishers and developers will be using Wolfenstein 2 as a guide in order to gauge the community’s interest. If this latest Wolfenstein game sells well, it could mean many more single-player first-person shooter games coming to modern consoles soon.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus on YouTube with Gigamax

The game overall is an incredible experience. Fast paced and extraordinary in terms of action, it was able to deliver true entertainment coupled with a fantastic story. America has fallen to the Nazi’s and gamers play as a resistance fighter ready to take back the United States of America. Not only is it an interesting story, it almost intentionally touches on important social issues in real life to pull even more emotion out of the gamer. This is a true patriotic story and it truly is a thrilling adventure.

Even if a gamer never played a previous Wolfenstein, the game does a great job catching people up with the story. A quick and concise recap in the beginning of the game gives people a nice synopsis of the most recent Wolfenstein story ark. The New Colossus is the sequel to Wolfenstein: The New Order but it still remains inviting to those that didn’t have a chance to play the first game. MachineGames really did an amazing thing with this latest release.

Dead by Daylight – Halloween Special!

Dead by Daylight – Halloween Horror Special!

The Gigamax crew is celebrating October with a bunch of different scary games and Dead by Daylight is on the list. Sneaking around a bunch of unique monsters while your friends try to start generators might sound easy, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Gigs and Mack test their luck and go head to head with some monsters online to see if they have what it takes to survive. For the most part, they don’t but it’s still funny watching them kick and wiggle to stay far away from that meat hook.

Going in relatively blind, the Gigamax crew are bigger fans of Friday the 13th: The Game, but Dead by Daylight shares a lot of similarities with the other indie game. This gave the crew some confidence in their abilities but it soon becomes clear they are in fact two very different games. The fact that the human players can’t fight back dramatically changes the entire pace of the game. It is amazing how much it can make one person panic.

Be sure to stick around for even more Halloween specials throughout the month of October and more episodes of Dead by Daylight as more updates are released. Freddy Krueger has been confirmed so there will absolutely be more episodes in the near future.

The Evil Within 2 – Horror Special!

The Evil Within 2 – Horror Special!

The Evil Within 2 came out on Friday the 13th, 2017 and its timing was no accident. Developed by Tango Gameworks and published by Bethesda, they truly captured the psychological horror the first game created so well. Starting out with a more focused mission, the familiar faces and unfamiliar environments create the perfect atmosphere for this time of year. With Halloween right around the corner, the Gigamax crew thought this was the perfect game to celebrate the holiday season and The Evil Within 2 is a great fit.

Now that The Evil Within 2 playlist is up and going, be sure to stay tuned for new episodes as Gigs and Mack work their way through this terrifying adventure. Gigs offers some pro-tips and Mack watches on, sweating and scared for their lives. One thing this game does very well is making sure the player never feels safe, not even the safe rooms can protect the gamer from the horrors of this world.

The Evil Within 2  [Gameplay and Survival Tips] on YouTube

Each step forward opens up the opportunity for anything to happen. The fact that The Evil Within 2 took all the terrifying elements from the first but completely left the liner story behind and instead changed to an open world gives the game a completely different feel. The open world leaves everything to chance and gives the player a feeling that they are in control in a world where nothing can be controlled. This makeup gives this horror game it’s extremely unique feel.
