In this week's episode of How It's Played, we are discussing the epidemic of open-world games. This includes the many issues that plague these games and some of the major benefits of the genre.

 Overall, the game vastly improves on a lot of the major downfalls of  previous entries. However, the lack of customization and incentives does  negatively impact replayability. Despite this, the game’s brand new  mechanics and style creates a memorable experience that will appeal to  all audiences

Overall, 'Incredibles 2' is definitely worth the wait. The film expertly  balances action while showcasing a genuine family connection. Through  the use of a strong plot and a different perspective on existing  characters, the film feels fresh and nostalgic at the same time. This is  an incredible film for both newcomers and veterans of the older Pixar  generation.

Overall, this episode was a game-changer on many levels. Before, I  considered the show to be less serious. However, with the death of Best  Jeanist and the anger of All Might, that has changed my mind. The next  episode looks to give more backstory on the history between All Might  and One for All, so that will be a sure topic that shouldn’t be missed. 

‘My Hero Academia’ Season 3, Episode 8: “From Iida to Midoriya”

06/05/2018 5:30pm

Overall, there was a lot of developments in this episode with the  student’s demeanor and how the school is now being perceived by the  public. It is a unique situation in a show for the heroes to be in a  negative point of view. However, there is hope for our protagonists to  still show that heroes will always prevail. As always, I am excited for  next week’s episode.
