Blog Herding – The Best Blogs Of The Community (June 29, 2017)

This week's Blog Herding is a little smaller than usual, but that's because you are all out celebrating the announcement of the latest Monster Hunter, right? Even with the lower amount of blogs, there's still a great selection of topics to read about.

Community Blogs For June 22 – June 28:

So… I finally played Wolfenstein: The New Order
… and it was the best thing ever, is how TroubleWithStairs essentially phrases it. Okay, I might be inserting my own opinion in there, but the blogger does love it after what he thought was a lackluster opening. I'm excited to see so many people playing The New Order for the first time, or the fourth time. I actually beat it twice on the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 4. Loved it every time.

It's Time For Sega To Step Their Game Up. (No Pun Intended)
It feels like Sega has been made fun of for such a long time now, that when I see Marco Polo's headline, I can't help but get all nostalgic. Marco says it best: "Every now and then, they get something right…other times they do things that are just baffling." Like not getting to work on a second Skies of Arcadia…

Valley is Kinda Dope
"The L.E.A.F. suit is a mech of sorts," writes Freezedried72. And with that, I am kind of sold. While the graphics and sound aren't up to current triple-A standards, our blogger says this game is one-of-a-kind. Valley really does sound kind of dope.

A Few Ways Activision Can 'Modernize' Call of Duty
Call of Duty. Call of Duty never changes. Well, that's not true, but it is kind of what Trenchmace is getting at here with a list of some much-needed changes. While some things would be nice (free maps), I'm not sure how well all of these would work. But I also loved the last game, sans multiplayer, so what do I know?

One Man's Thoughts: Mass Effect: Andromeda
Attackcobra is here to attack the latest Mass Effect. Okay, not really. But this blog is honest about the failings this space opera offered. However, "in-between all these problems, there still is enjoyment to be had in Andromeda." I'll wait until it is $ 20. Sorry, BioWare.

My Thoughts on Crash Bandicoot: N-Sane Trilogy
StarterPack isn't entirely stoked about the Crash trilogy. He makes some good points about the sometimes terrible camera, but I actually enjoyed the series. I am old enough to have been the prime age for those to release and master. I just wish Crash Team Racing had been included.
