Warpback: What We Played in July 2017

There weren’t very many new games to talk about this month, but the Warp Zoned staff definitely spent the last four weeks replaying some old favorites.

But wait! We also found time to talk about new releases like Arms and Diablo III: Rise of the Nercomancer (I just got that)…

My July can be summed up with dark dungeons and the DC Universe. I continued to pour time into NetherRealm’s Injustice 2, which is just an all around impressive fighting game. I completed both halves of the story (I demand the return of Evil Batman!) and managed to unlock so much Gear I don’t what to do with it all.

I also explored a pair of dark dungeons last month in Iron Crytipcle, a twin-stick shooter that feels like an “If They Mated” mashup of Gauntlet and Smash TV. And thanks to a Free Play Weekend from Microsoft, I jumped back into Diablo III and saved New Tristram once again. Fear my mighty Monk!

There’s not a lot for me to report here!

I have been faithfully plugging away at Persona 5, Pokemon Go, and Pokemon Moon. And I fear Anthony Amato and I have made a huge mistake playing double Necromancers in Diablo III… we’re just too powerful and we are constantly destroying everything. It’s been a lot of fun, though, so I guess we’re doing something right! I also finally finished up all of the Monument Valley DLC, so it’s time to start the second game!

I don’t think I found more than a few hours to play video games during the entire length of July. I managed a few rounds of Arms (and wrote a review), mostly getting pummeled on the harder difficulty settings. I also continued to slog through to the bitter end of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, which I was really enjoying up to a point, but the plot just lost me about 25 hours in.

Seriously though, I look forward to the days when I have more free time. In 30 years. When I retire.

This month I also played some Pokemon Moon. And once again, I busted out Animal Crossing: New Leaf, because for some reason I just keep going back to it. Man, there’s a lot of weeds in my town. I also played Mighty Gunvolt Burst on the Switch, and I must say, it’s everything Mighty No. 9 should have been. Really enjoying that one.
