Saturday Video Round Up: Feb 19 – 25

Hey, look! Saturday is here and that means the Round Up is here to (hopefully) entertain and delight you. For those new here, the Video Round Up collects the best trailers and gameplay videos from the past week and puts them all here for your viewing pleasure. There’s a lot to get to this week, so here’s just a small sampling of what is waiting for you after the jump.

It was a big week for BioWare as a number of Mass Effect Andromeda videos came out and for myself, increasing the hype meter considerably. The first video shows off more single player gameplay, along with how the upgrade and skill tree process works this time around. A second video introduces us the Lexi T’Perro, the chief medic and the first person players will meet. Lastly, a third video which dropped on Friday has security chief, Liam Costa, discussing weapon training.

Sony’s first major AAA title for 2017 Horizon Zero Dawn finally launches next week and a handful of new trailers also arrived showing off more of the gorgeous open world, combat, and exploration players will be taking part in.

I’ve also got new videos for Nier: Automata, Injustice 2, Nintendo Switch and so much more after the break, so come check out this week’s batch of trailers!

The full list of videos await you after the jump…

For Honor Campaign Impressions – For the King/Shogun/Warlord!

Over the past few weeks, I’ve talked at length about the multiplayer component to Ubisoft’s melee action title For Honor. I think at this point you all have a pretty good idea on how I feel about it and how it plays. So in an effort to not repeat myself or continue to talk about the same content, I’m taking a different approach this time around.

One thing that I find somewhat interesting is that not many people are talking about the single player campaign all that much. I know that the big draw for this game is the multiplayer, but after spending a good amount of time with the single player content, I feel like it deserves some attention as well.

I won’t lie, I wasn’t expecting too much, but the campaign was not only a good introductory tool for a number of heroes, but has some really cool moments as well. Let’s discuss!

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Gets A Season Pass

The big Nintendo news last week was that their big AAA Switch launch title, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is getting a season pass. While Xbox One and PlayStation 4 users probably wouldn’t bat an eye at that news due to the landscape they’ve found themselves in for a while now, things are understandably different with Nintendo. I think this caught on for a couple of reasons.

Saturday Video Round Up: February 12 – 18

Saturday is back once again and along with it comes a brand new edition of the Video Round Up. It’s back to bring you the best trailers and videos from the past week, so without further delay, let’s get into it, shall we?

It was a big week for Injustice 2 as the upcoming DC Comics fighting game introduced a bunch of fighters to its expansive roster of heroes and villains. Swamp Thing made his debut, followed by another trailer showing off four femme fatales with Black Canary, Poison Ivy, Catwoman, and Cheetah.

After much success with their Wii U season pass experiment for first party games like Super Smash Bros, Mario Kart 8, and Hyrule Warriors, Nintendo has revealed that they’re doing another season pass for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. While many of you may be worrying that Zelda has always been a complete experience on day one, it appears that Nintendo is not planning on cutting out content and reselling it. Based on the limited information, the post-launch content appears to be additional, and optional content.

I’ve also got new videos for Nier: Automata, Sea of Theaves, Horizon Zero Dawn and so much more after the break, so come check out this week’s batch of trailers!

The full list of videos await you after the jump…

For Honor Closed Beta Impressions

Well, I promised you all some impressions on For Honor and today is the day I finally deliver. With an open beta arriving this coming weekend, hopefully I can better paint the picture of what you’ll be getting yourself into. I know I’ve been talking a lot about this game lately, and I swear this is it for a little while.

At first glance, For Honor looks like a typical third person hack and slash title pitting Samurai, Knights, and Vikings against once another. It’s easy to believe that based on the trailers and gameplay out there already. Once you pick up a controller though, the game quickly teaches you that way of thinking is completely wrong.

Check out my detailed thoughts after the jump…
