It is rare to see such a large studio with so many established AAA IP's take a shot on a brand new IP and concept... unless that studio is Ubisoft. Ubisoft is one of the few studios that still likes to try out a new IP virtually every year. For Honor is a very interesting game; its core concept is so strong, and when it puts you in certain situations it is truly a new exciting combat system that I've never seen; however, most of the time the game doesn't put you in those situations and ends up in the areas of mediocrity far too often.

Not counting Persona 4: Golden, it has been eight years since a numbered title in Atlus' Persona series was released and since then we've had a bevy of spinoffs to sate our hunger for Persona 5. But with a number of delays some, myself included, were starting to lose hope and sight. Persona 5 has finally been released in Japan and while the Western release is still a few months away, I unabashedly could not contain my excitement for the game any longer and imported a copy. It was worth it.
Possible, but not probable.
It has been almost 10 years since Marvel: Ultimate Alliance was released to rather favorable reception, the game took the best parts of the X-Men: Legends series and expanded the characters and story to include the rest of the Marvel Universe. Now the game has been ported to PS4, Xbox One, and PC (Steam release), so does the game hold up years later? Sort of.
Marvel: Ultimate Alliance opens with the nefarious Dr. Doom and the Masters of Evil attacking a SHIELD Helicarrier for reasons we learn later. Soon after players are hopping between many well-known locales such as Atlantis, Mephisto's Realm, and even Asgard. The story is separated into five acts that as a whole feel like an entire Marvel comic book crossover event. From start to finish I was eager to know where my next mission would take me. As you visit different areas in the game you'll meet a wide array of Marvel characters such as Weasel, Wyatt Wingfoot, Wong, and even Uatu. Of course, you'll also bump into a good number of Marvel villains some well known and some rather obscure (Fin Fang Foom fans holla!).
After a handful of delays, Darkest Dungeon once again has a release date on Sony consoles.
It's time to get serious with Blizzard's adored multiplayer-focused shooter.
