Soul Caliber Announcement

The long running quest for a powerful sword has returned. At the recent Playstation event, Bandai Namco showed off some gameplay and a spiffy new trailer (below) to a crowd that really wasn’t expecting this. It’s been 6 years since Soul Caliber 5 and will feature amazing graphics, some guest characters and the return of it’s somewhat robust character creation system. At about 70% complete, expect this game to launch sometime in 2018.

Net Neutrality Vote

As expected, the FCC voted 3 to 2 in favor of removing the Net Neutrality law that was put in place by the Obama Administration. Even though they voted in favor, it still has to go before Congress so there is a chance it could be reinstated. However, if this is not the case, it appears the NY’s AG Eric Schneiderman is planning on suing the FCC to stop them from repealing it. Stay tuned to www.the2ndreview.com for information as it arises.

Quick Review of Breath of the Wild

PROS

– It is enormous.

– Graphics fit the style perfectly whether it be landscape or Link

CONS

– Quests are too spread out and lacking in smaller side quests.

– The weapons are frustrating, breaking them is way too easy.

– Bosses are beyond Dark Souls caliber

Graphics 9.0
