If I am to be honest, I am a little burned out of playing video games. I currently have no deadlines on when I need to publish things and I still find myself dropping games after a few play sessions. The only one that I have stuck with in recent memory is Marvel’s Spiderman (In all fairness, it was amazing).
One of the things that has been sorely missing from Pokemon Go since the beginning is NPC Trainer Battles. I mean sure there are the training battles that you can have with the team leaders, but those skirmishes do not carry any stakes. This is why I feel that the introduction of Team GO Rocket (ridiculous name aside) is a step in the right direction for Niantic’s AR Giant.
Let me take you back to the summer of 2011. To say it was hot in the state of Texas is an understatement, and I decided to become a cart pusher for Target. So my days went as followed. Wake up at noon. Go into Target and push carts inside until the sun went down. Then, when I was thoroughly exhausted, come home and watch the 2007 Nancy Drew movie until I fell asleep. I did this for two months straight.
The beat’em up genre is one that has always been challenging yet enjoyable. From Double Dragon to Streets of Rage and even Scott Pilgrim vs The World, being able to clear out a screen full of enemies is oddly satisfying. Following in the footsteps of those amazing games comes Full Metal Furies by Cellar Door Games.
The mobile arena has a lot of Pokemon rip off games. Like a lot of Pokemon rip off games. Serious, stop reading this and type in Pokemon into your app store and start scrolling. I’ll wait. Are you back? Great, now that we have that out of the way I can tell you about one of the ones I have found that is actually quite good. So good I bought it, with my own money.
