Video Game Review: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey: Judgment of Atlantis

Details: Spent about seven hours playing through it. More information can be found at https://assassinscreed.ubisoft.com/game/en-us/home

Score: 6/10

For the most part, this DLC is lackluster. However, I cannot deny that it’s pretty to look at. The art department knocked it out of the park with Judgment of Atlantis. It’s the writers and scenario makers that sucked ass with this one.

Video Game Review: Grand Theft Auto Online: Diamond Casino DLC

Details: More information can be found at https://www.rockstargames.com/

Score: 6/10

Rockstar has released the latest free downloadable content for their massively profitable Grand Theft Auto Online and it’s mostly fun. Most noteworthy is that there is a new line of story missions associated with the free content (as long as you own Grand Theft Auto V and have an internet connection).

Video Game Review: Pokemon Omega Ruby

Details: Beat the game in about twenty-four hours. Spent about three hours going through post game content. More information can be found at https://www.pokemon.com/us/pokemon-video-games/pokemon-omega-ruby-and-pokemon-alpha-sapphire/

Score: 7/10

Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are remakes of older games using the graphics and animations from Pokemon X and Y. Strangely enough, the game looks better than X and Y. While I enjoyed Omega Ruby more than I enjoyed X, the many added features do not cover up flaws in the original Ruby and Sapphire that made their way into these remakes as well.

Video Game Review: Detective Pikachu

Details: No idea how long this game took, but there are nine chapters and each chapter probably took a little over an hour to get through. More information can be found at https://detectivepikachu.pokemon.com/en-us/

Score: 5.9/10

Detective Pikachu is a standard adventure game. My biggest complaints with this game are not with the game itself, but with the adventure game genre, which I find mostly boring. Also, an adventure game relies heavily on its story and while Detective Pikachu tells its own story separate from the movie, there’s enough connection to the movie’s story that it took something away from the game.

Video Game Review: Pokemon X

Details: Beat the main game in about thirty-two hours. Played about three more hours going through post game content. More information can be found at https://www.pokemon.com/us/pokemon-video-games/pokemon-x-and-pokemon-y/

Score: 6.8/10

There is no reason to play this game at the present date unless someone has given you a free copy. Pokemon X and Y is a decent Pokemon game, it is simply outdated. The story and gameplay follow the well established Pokemon game formula, minus all the improvements in Ultra Sun and Moon. If you need to play a Pokemon game right now, go get Ultra Sun or Moon. Otherwise, just wait for Pokemon Sword and Shield.
