The Week In Games: Who's Hungry For Some Gods?

This week’s biggest release is God Eater 3, a game which I don’t really know anything about! Looking at screenshots and videos it seems cool. Maybe I’ll give it a try when it comes out February 8th on PS4 and PC.


Before I looked up anything about God Eater I had this idea in my head that the game was about tough anime dudes and chicks running around the world killing and eating gods. Then I looked up the plot and discovered I’m not that far off.

Beyond eating gods, this upcoming week is jam packed with Switch games. If you own a Switch and need some more games, this week has you covered. I also spotted two 3DS releases this week, which is fun. How long will that little machine hold on? If you are wanting to do some back flips on a dirt bike, you should check out Monster Energy Supercross - The Official Game 2, which wins this week’s award for longest title! Congratulations.

basically god eater is like monster hunter. but the animations lock you in less, so its easier, you also have human partners who are stronger than palicos, really the more exact comparison is toukiden. one difference is your “weapon” is always composed of a shield, a melee weapon, a “gun”, and a symbiote to eat enemy body parts and get special gun ammo types, and it transforms as you fight. there is also a mode to customize ammo types that requires a masters degree from cal-tech. the storyline is standard anime word salad of pseudo science, an end of the world where still care way too much about idol singers, corrupt governments and rebellious teenagers with boyband haircuts. even the “gods” are this absurd sci fi gobbeltyblab about carnivorous cells that spontaneously rearrrange into giant monsterized versions of normal animals.

I’m going to hold off on it till i beat all of monster hunter world done. Though I do enjoy the series, and he fact they got a dual blades type weapon was interesting. and my big deal is actually etrian oddesy nexus. I have kind of enjoyed the series from the demos as a nice retro throwback, and this one, with kind of the “greatest hits” of the series,
