You boot up your favorite online game, do a bit of Aimlab to get warmed up, and venture into competitive play, thinking
“I’m going to absolutely dominate today”
Just to get absolutely and utterly destroyed by some 13 year old kid on Gfuel
It’s days like those, that you need something else..
Something a bit more relaxing, that won’t have you screaming at your teammates in a foreign language
And what better alternative than submerging yourself in the wondrous world of single player RPG’s, to enjoy some downtime
You could even find yourself one of the lucky winners of one of our steam gift cards over at https://vloot.io/ - And practically get these games for free.
So if that sounds like a good trade, I’d head over there right now, and participate in the giveaway. It could be your lucky day!
But with that little introduction out of the way, grab a blanket and a hot cup of chocolate, and let’s get started!
The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt
Do you like swords? Exhilarating combat and the possibility of getting into bed with 80% of the females you interact with?
Well, then Witcher 3 might just be the PERFECT game for you.
Before “Toss a coin to your witcher” became a thing, You could literally BE the Witcher, and go on marvelous adventures throughout “The Continent” (yes, that’s what the world is called)
The base game alone contains anywhere from 40 to 80 hours of gameplay, depending on how much “Adventuring” you do
And trust me, there’s a LOT of chances to go on adventures.
You get to explore a plethora of continents and islands, and even more, breathtaking locations become ripe for discovery, when you unlock the DLC
Each of the two DLC packs is the length of certain other base games, and allows for Multiple Endings
One thing that blows my absolute mind about the witcher, is how every single sidequest, isn’t just a mere “kill 10 boars”
But rather well crafted storylines, where you experience a lot of world building, and meet characters that you learn to care for.
The level of customization is nothing to scoff at either.
There’s a total of 6 different sets you can go for, each with their own bonuses and characteristics.
Which you’re then able to combine with the elaborate skill tree and mutagens to craft a playstyle that’s completely your own
Whether you choose to be a spell caster type battle-mage with the griffin set
Or more of a defensive tank with the bear set, dealing monstrous damage to your enemies every time they hit you.
Basically “Why are you hitting yourself” - The Set
So if you haven’t already played through the witcher 3, I honestly don’t know what you’ve been up to all these years!
Do yourself a favor, grab it on the steam and embrace your inner medieval monster hunter, sometimes for as low as 9.99 Euro!
Borderlands 3 (and 2 while you’re at it)
Borderlands is the culmination of giving guns to someone who’s obsessed with memes
I played Borderlands 2 back in 2013, was completely blown away, and waited 6 LONG years for the release of BL3,
And let me tell you. It didn’t disappoint.
The art is beautiful, and a nice change of pace from the industry’s obsession with hyperrealism.
It looks very cartoony and makes you feel like you’ve stumbled right into a playable comic book.
The characters are all great, each with their own hilarious dialogue which keeps you entertained throughout the entirety of your playthrough.
And not only that, they’ve each got deep, extensive skill trees that give you tremendous choice, as to how you want to progress through the game.
If you’ve played the previous Borderlands titles, you’ll become reacquainted with a lot of the characters you love
And the story itself is a fun adventure that spans throughout a plethora of different planets, all with their own biomes, and enemies.
Borderlands 3 is the type of game that makes you feel like a badass.
A perfect example of what it feels like to blast your way through this captivating looter shooter
Is the “Field test” scene from the 2014 Robocop movie
Borderlands 3 is a fun experience that will last you for anywhere between 30-100 hours, depending on whether you decide to play the story just once
Or if you decide to go all the way, beat the hardest difficulty and reach the max level to unlock the full extent of your skill tree.
All in all, if you want to take a break from your latest online shooter obsession, but still want to keep your aim on point while getting a few laughs.
Then Borderlands 3 might be the next game to add to your collection
