It is New Years Eve after all! Why not send the glorious year of 2016 out right, with 3 glasses of champagne in each hand and no regrets! There’s a possibility that you’ll be greeting 2017 with the worst hangover of your life, but it’s worth the risk!
2016 was quite the year for the gaming community; with so many ups, and of a course let-down. Let’s take a look of some 2016’s popular entries into the gaming world.
Pokemon Sun & Pokemon Moon:
So Pokemon Z wasn’t GameFreak’s next entry into the ever-popular Pokemon franchise of handheld games; Pokemon Sun & Moon were. If you haven’t played either of this generation’s games yet, don’t worry, Zygarde still plays a quite major role in the series!
What can really be said about Pokemon Go? Oh, I know! It was an epic failure! And kind of a cash-grab. Want to train your newly acquired Pikachu? You’d better whip out the plastic because it’s going to cost ya! Need some Pokeballs? You could attempt to acquire some from PokeStops, but you’ll more than likely end up with a overflowing bag of potions. Don’t worry, just whip out that plastic again and you can have as many Pokeballs as your credit limit allows! You ran out of bag space?! A quick swipe of your plastic will solve that! Don’t even get me started on hatching eggs…
Kingdom Hearts III:
This is the let-down referred to before. Kingdom Hearts III has seemingly been in development for the last 10 years. Even scarier is that in all that time, there’s really only been a single gameplay trailer released…and overall details about the game remain super scarce. There’s no official release date for this game as of yet. It has been so long since I’ve played a Kingdom Hearts game that I’ve forgotten what they look like…maybe soon.
Final Fantasy IV:
Behind Pokemon Sun and Moon, this is the game that I was most excited for during 2016. I guess you could take that Final Fantasy IV was my “first official” entry in the world of Final Fantasy; I dabbled in some of the older Final Fantasy games, but nothing ever really stuck. Any-who, I am absolutely loving Final Fantasy IV! If you haven’t already, do yourself a favor and pick it up!
So, here I am…halfway through my huge glass of wine. What next?! What will 2017 bring? Who really knows?! What I know is that it’s time for another drink! And because I love you guys so much, I’m going to share this recipe with you! Enjoy!
