Bayonet 2

Bayonetta 2 is a fast and fluid action game to discover. Take on the role of a sassy lady and defeat your enemies with style and grace. His actions are sometimes sexually appealing but not too much to stray from the character. The game is much more of an adrenaline rush with its Animations 60 fps.

The game is full of glassed-in combat and over-the-top combat that will keep you on your toes. Either way, the game isn’t overrated aside from its quirky dialogues. Every punch, kick, and weapon swing is satisfying when done right.

You’ll kick enemies from left to right with smashing combos and summon demons to attack. It’s just the right game for hardcore gamers but also welcomes newcomers.

I blew my steam for ten hours of combat, and it was amazing to mix and match combos. Before I knew it, enemies were dancing to the beat of my weapons.

     The Legend of Zelda Breath Of The Wild

The first time Legend of Zelda has created a real open-world game and it’s breathtaking. You can reach as far as your eyes can see. A truly open-world game with no invisible walls blocking your path or level caps.

Once we’re done with The Great Plateau, we can explore the vast desert or run straight to the boss, although I wouldn’t recommend the latter.

Breath of the wild has had me spending hundreds of hours unraveling secret locations, gratifying my curiosity to the bitter end, and this game never failed to amaze me.

From the grassy lands of Hyrule’s planes to the volcanic sites of Goron Town, there’s always something to explore around the corner, and that’s what I love most about Breath of the Wild.

You also have various creative ways to encounter enemies. You can run straight into their camp and start fighting, or you can sneak attack at night while they sleep, or you can throw bombs from afar.

There are so many ways, and the Zelda community is still discovering many hidden tips and tricks; it’s amazing. I didn’t know that could happen, or that you could get elemental damage. So many subtle game designs that make Zelda a truly fun experience.
