This weekend was honestly a better weekend for me. Mafia III and Gears of War 4 came out this week. I got my hands on both of them, and they are really good. I will start off with Mafia III, the title says it all, yes you are in the mafia and yes you are disposing other characters in the game.
You play as Lincoln, an African-American marine who served in Vietnam, the game is taking place around the 1960s. There is some racism and sexism in the game, due to the time period, but I like the fact that the creators of the game were able to go there and say “Hey! We have this game and we are taking a chance on it.” I’m fine with that and so far, I’m nowhere near the middle of the game, as I just started not too long ago. The graphics are very beautiful; I feel like the graphics are very similar to Grand Theft Auto V.
The game I have been able to play a lot is Gears of War 4. Gears takes place 25 years after the war with the locus.
It has amazing graphics and the story is to bring up the new members of the game, which are J.D Fenix, Del Walker, and Kait Diaz.
I feel like throughout the game they are all fighting for the same thing. Their mission is saving Marcus (J. D’s father) and also saving Reyna (Kait’s mother). The game is told beautifully with music and graphics; it is also a great way to bring the series back up from their previous game (Gears of War Judgement), which was really terrible depending on the person you talk to.
You start off the game with a prologue of remembering all the events that took place for E-day. You go into Chapter 1 learning about the main characters and how they are outsiders to the COG.
Now at this point you are being attacked by the COG for trying to help out any outsiders and you eventually get to meet up with Marcus.
The crew then meets the Swarm which is the 2nd generation of locus but are not locus. Marcus ends up getting taken away from the Swarm and your main mission is to get him back. Finally, you do get Marcus back and at a point you think he died when finally, you get to the end and I will not spoil the ending for anyone.
