March has been full of exciting video game announcements that have people buzzing. March is usually a slow time for games as people are just waiting for the big summer releases but this March has been an exception.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild came out on March 3 along with the Nintendo Switch console. Legend of Zelda had been getting rave reviews based on the fact that it has the biggest open world any Zelda game has ever had. Plus, you know, people are excited to see Link take his shirt off.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is the tenth game in the series and first of the series to feature an open world. You play as the Ghosts, an elite special operations team. While the game is fun to play, reviewers have been complaining that the game is very repetitive.
People have been crazy excited for the release of Mass Effect Andromeda which was released on March 21. Many hated the ending of Mass Effect 3 and while this new one will feature a different character people are hoping this new game in the series will redeem itself for the past failures.
The Nintendo Switch is still going strong because of its ability to be a home console and also to be mobile. Thousands of people have posted about taking their Switch on planes and actually looking forward to a long plane ride because of it. The big drawback however is its inability to transfer saves from one console to another leaving people with lost data if they happen to need to buy a new one.
At Pax East 2017 in Boston from March 10-12 Telltale Games showed footage of their new Guardians of the Galaxy game which will release later this year. Telltale Games made a deal with Marvel to make this game, however, it will not be canon to the movie series. Telltale Games has been taking the gaming world by storm lately with its vast number of new game series from Batman to now, Guardians of the Galaxy. The new episode of their Walking Dead game series, season 3 episode 3, will release on March 28.
