An eclectic mixture of blogs are collected below. You won't want to skip a word!

Community Blogs For February 2 – February 7:

The Adventures of a Gamer Teacher Special: Multiplayer Joy
At this point, poet and blogger GerardoExber should just be hired as Nintendo's official poet. That should totally be a thing.

Mega Man Legends Nostalgia
Phoenix_Apollo had me at Mega Man Legends. It had been six years since our blogger played it, but he decided to go back thanks to the memories of the game. Isolation isn't something you would normally think of with a Mega Man game, but that's what Legends had loads of. While the writer struggles with the idea of going back to replay a game with so much new stuff on shelves, I think it's great to go back and relive these games. As soon as I get most of my Monster Hunter itch out of the way at hour 400, I want to go back and replay the Legends series, including the Misadventures of Tron Bonne.

GMC: Building Realms
StarterPack goes all in creating a world he would like to come to life in an open-world video game. It's nice to read something with so much creativity and thought put into it. I would play your game!

Thoughts on Dissidia Final Fantasy Opera Omnia
Thunder gives us a pretty good look at the Omnia beta. I was interested until I read, "All in all, Opera Omnia is a remarkably solid effort in the ever-crowded mobile character-collector space." These types of games just never keep me interested for too long, unfortunately.

Game-Making Challenge: An Open-World, Open-Door Policy
I love this intro from Haley Shipley: "Between picking Horizon Zero Dawn back up, watching my roommate 100% Far Cry: Primal, and exploring the open world that is Colorado hiking, I'm in love. The freedom to go anywhere, do anything isn't daunting – it's intoxicating." That's how I felt when on honeymoon in the Redwood forests and navigating Crater Lake. And I am digging her Judge Dredd-like idea.

5 Things I Like About Rise of the Tomb Raider
I feel like I didn't hear much about this game upon release, so it is nice to read this from Timothy Repasky. It's such a fun world to play in; I can't wait to jump back in and finish it.

Community Reviews:

Secretlab Titan
Buying a gaming chair or desk chair is never easy. You don't know how comfy it will be, or how well made it is. But Brendon Curzio seems to enjoy this Titan chair, which even comes with a head pillow!

Subnautica Review: A Return to The Deep
Writergirl2394 is here to tell you how awesome this trek through deep waters is. It is far from perfect, but you can bet on updates fixing these things. Though I do cringe when I read, "random bugs."

I hope you enjoy the blogs! Please contact me via my Game Informer page or on Twitter at @LouisGarcia12 with any blog news or playdate suggestions.
