For the past couple of weeks I have been playing my very first Wolfenstein game, The New Order. I know, I’m super late to the game. Literally. I’m really excited to finally be playing it, though — it’s one of the best shooters I’ve ever experienced. And even though it’s first-person instead of third-person, it reminds me most of the gritty, over-the-top action and squad spirit in Gears of War.
Here are five reasons I’m loving the game!
Thanks for watching! I’d love to hear what everybody else thinks of the game if you’ve played it, or what some of your favorite shooters are too. =)

Now that E3 is coming to an end, it’s time to talk about the games the event showed off this year! While 2017 may not have introduced as many new games as I would have liked to see, there’s plenty of new footage from known games — along with the occasional surprise announcement — to get excited about. I’ll leave out previous big announcements like Destiny 2 and Cuphead, which I already knew I wanted to play, to focus on games that really caught my eye during this E3! I’d love to hear from you guys about your favorite games of the show, too. =)
