3 games to jump into pt 2

Three more suggestions for games that are easy to jump into. I did part one as a means to give you ideas of what you could play to kill time or not invest too much time into. If I'm not passed out from drinking a couple of brews, then I am probably working on something. This gives me little time to invest in anything. You may be suffering the same fate as I am. Don't worry, I got your back with more suggestions. 1. Marvel vs Capcom 2 As broken as this game may be, it still holds up. 56 characters to choose from. 56! 3 on 3 team battles with chaos that doesn't stop. Seriously, how is this a professionally played video game? You can't even tell what's going on. I always assumed whoever could button mash the most wins. If you aren't picking Cable, Storm, Magneto, Sentinel, Cyclops, or Captain Commando then you obviously don't plan on winning . Also, above all else, the music makes the game a solid 11/10 for me. I want to take you for a ride.

Easy mode for video games

Sekiro has been causing a stir with the video game community due to its difficulty. Some have called for an "easy" mode. There appears to be two camps. One is dealing with it. The other is the game needs to be adjusted for skill. I am on the fence.  I can't have an opinion on a game I have yet to play. However, easy mode is not out of the question. I guess people forget Devil May Cry 3 received the same treatment. Devil May Cry 3 I don't know about you, but I want to be a badass like Dante. Badass guns, cool sword, and that leather jacket would make a statement. Also, his quips are spot on.  I'll give the first three titles in the franchise proper time for a review of their own, but for now, let's talk about the unlockable easy mode. Die three times in normal mode and you unlock easy mode. When I was working at GameStop, I checked out DMC 3 and remembering hearing about the insane difficulty North America got. According to the Devil May C

Game of the Month: March 2019

Game of the month for March is Castlevania Dawn of Sorrow on the Nintendo DS. It's obvious I'm a fan of Castlevania. Been one for a long time. Castlevania has that awesome backtracking system that isn't annoying. What do we call that style? Metroidvania? Since Metroid follows the same style. Anything after Symphony of the Night is an automatic going to play game. For one, that's where I started. I never played Rondo of Blood, but I did play Dracula X on PSP. The updated graphics was appreciated.  Dawn of Sorrow I went in expecting simple platforming, action-rpg elements that are familiar in all Castlevania games, besides the 3D ones of course - Lament of Innocence anyone ? Well, I got that. Unlike previous titles in the franchise, this game is bright. The overall visuals of the game are not as brooding and gothic as what you imagine when you think of Castlevania. This could be because artist  Ayami Kojima was not doing the artwork. Several reviewe
