Continuing on from the events of the original Costume Quest, the sequel takes place in an alternate version of things in which the children’s dentist, using magic, is trying to destroy Halloween and sugary sweets in one fell swoop. If played during December, the game’s environments would be decorated with snow, lights and presents, and an instrumental version of “Jingle Bells” replaced the original music. In addition to that event, there’s a new Blitz update, a new original costume series, some Dark Doman Region costumes and Omega Cards, an increase in the level cap, and more. So for instance, the superhero is strong against wizards but weak against tech, meaning you’ll inflict more damage against magic users but take greater damage against tech enemies. This super cool game provides with a DLC pack in which you’ll find the character and costume of Grubbins a lot of new enemies, new quests/adventures, a lot of creepy trick or treat cards etc. You must in the end be able to bring peace to Repugia by killing all the monsters and completing all the objectives. With different types of monster, from magic to technical, you’ll find a use for the different strengths of every costume.
They were wild, and shifting and whacky, and this sums up exactly what to expect in every part of Costume Quest 2. Even during the combat, where the characters costumes transform into the giant versions of whatever they represent as they battle it out above a small representation of the area they find themselves in; as if imagined up by children watching a little too much Power Rangers. Double Fine have done a great job of tapping into the mind, and imagination of children. Double Fine Productions has once again created a game that captures the essence of a certain childish wonder the studio has become famous for over the years. In 2014, Nintendo contacted Double Fine Productions, and were able to get the game released on the Nintendo Wii U. They are now working together once again to try to get the game released through the Nintendo eShop, so consumers who own a Nintendo 3DS will have a chance to play the game as well. An old-school roleplaying game (in the vein of the Super Nintendo-era “Final Fantasy” games you might have grown up playing) with its tongue firmly in cheek, “Cthulhu Saves Christmas” is a holiday-themed sequel to “Cthulhu Saves the World.” It’s self-aware and sometimes breaks the fourth wall, and it’s worth checking out if you want some very lighthearted Lovecraftian touches sprinkled into your holiday.
This official winter-themed expansion pack to “Duke Nukem 3D” was largely blasted by fans of the original, but it’s worth a mention here because of “Duke”’s connection to the Dallas-Fort Worth area (the series was made here). Like the main game, it’s extremely charming and fun for the whole family. 1:27PM He summons a thunderbolt, raises his arm like Zeus, and throws it at a hapless goblin. Like some of the best Christmas movies, “Miles Morales” isn’t actually about Christmas, but it does take place during the holiday season. But one of its worlds, the Snow Kingdom, is decked with Christmas flair. Blizzard’s multiplayer hit has decked the halls with festive character skins, snowy landscapes and seasonal brawls: “Yeti Hunter” and “Mei’s Snowball Offensive.” There’s also a new game type this year: “Freezethaw Elimination,” a 4v4 match in which you need to freeze everybody on the opposing team to win.
What is throughout quite a simple game allows the creators to explore and develop an impressive sense of comedy within its little world. Part “Metal Gear Solid” parody, part stealthy Christmas adventure, “Merry Gear Solid” is a fun, free way to spend a little time laughing at dumb video game jokes and sneaking past kids on the naughty list. But it does take place on Christmas Eve. Sometimes the largest challenge in an MMO isn’t the raiding; it’s getting a group together in the first place. She can do the same for Thanksgiving, getting a feel for history by wearing a pilgrim costume featuring a black dress with a white apron and collar along with an authentic looking hat. It’s a short, enjoyable adventure that can make you feel nostalgic for both old video games and Christmas morning as a child. While running over zombies with an electrified go-kart is fun all year round, “Dead Rising 4” shines with its Christmas setting, which adds candy cane crossbows, explosive Santa traps and plenty more holiday weaponry to keep your slay bells ringing (see what I did there? Like, slaying zombies. Well, OK, mostly you can just hear sleigh bells in the distance and some enemies wear Santa hats, but it’s the little things that make the holidays cheerful.
