Bayonetta 2 News, and Thoughts

Image

Bayonetta originally released on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 back in 2010. Bayonetta 2 will be a Wii U exclusive and fans of the original are bashing the development team for this. What people fail to understand is Nintendo saved Platinum Games. There wasn’t going to be a Bayonetta 2. So maybe instead of all the hate you guys should be grateful it’s coming out at all. Bayonetta 2 will be released in 2014 and it’s been confirmed that it has a two player mode.

I’m looking forward to getting Bayonetta 2 next year and this is yet another reason why i’m choosing the Wii U over the Xbox One and Playstation 4. I hope you enjoyed reading this and if you did i’ll have more for you real soon.

Pokemon Flora Sky

Image

Pokemon Flora Sky is a fan-made Pokemon game. It has everything you would expect in a Pokemon and a little more. It has a nice story, old school graphics, and Pokemon from every generation for you to try and catch. I highly recommend any Pokemon fan to give this game a try. I’ve been hooked on it since I downloaded it and I have to say that it’s better than I thought it would be. The gym battles in Pokemon Flora Sky are tougher than what i’m used to in Pokemon games. I never expected the first gym to have fighting type Pokemon and i’ll admit that I lost my first battle with him because I wasn’t prepared.

Pokemon Flora Sky is a great game and I highly recommend that you guys give it a shot. Here’s the link to Pokemon Flora Sky http://pokemonfloraskyrom.com/download-pokemon-flora-sky-rom#.

Give it a shot and see for yourself how great this game is. I hope you enjoyed reading this and if you did i’ll have more for you real soon.

Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze- News, Release Date, and Thoughts

Image

Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze is yet another reason why I have to get myself a Wii U. I grew up playing Donkey Kong and it’s one of my favorite game series of all time. Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze will have Donkey Kong going up against vikings! How awesome is that. Donkey Kong Country has a new playable character Dixie Kong. Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze will be available sometime in November for North America, and Europe. I for one can’t wait to jump into this game and play as my favorite Kong. Until then I hope you enjoyed reading this and if you did i’ll have more for you real soon.

Sonic Lost World Thoughts and News

Image

I’m a huge Sonic fan and when I heard of this game I just had to check it out. Sonic Lost World is about these six deadly beings that Dr. Eggman has harnessed and they eventually rise up against him. So it’s up to Sonic and Dr. Eggman {yes that’s right they’re teaming up!} to join forces and put an end to this threat. Sonic is on a good streak right now. Sonic Colors, and Sonic Generations are both awesome games and from the gameplay that I saw this game will be no different.

Sega is doing a great job with keeping Sonic fresh and old school at the same time. Sonic Lost World will be available for both the Wii U and 3DS. The Wii U version of Sonic Lost World will have competitive multiplayer modes. Sonic Lost World will be available on October 22 in North America. I’m actually considering getting a Wii U now. There are a lot of good games coming out for it this year and I don’t want to miss out. I hope you enjoyed reading this and if you did i’ll have more for you real soon.

Final Fantasy 14- News, Problems, and Thoughts

Image

Final Fantasy 14 has just gone into open beta and it’s apparently unplayable for a lot of people. Their servers are apparently full and you can’t even get in the game to create a character. Fans of the game are outraged that they payed their hard earned cash for a game that they can’t play.

To make matters worse Square Enix will not allow youtubers to monetize anything Final Fantasy. You would think that since Final Fantasy 14 did so bad the first time it came out they would throw their fans a bone and say,” sure why not we don’t care what you guys do with Final Fantasy 14 as long as you play it.” I think that’s an incredibly stupid move for Square Enix to make. Especially considering Final Fantasy hasn’t been doing so well lately. Square Enix basically just fucked up their free advertising.

It’s no mystery that youtubers help sell games. If a popular youtube channel is playing your game then other people will most likely want to play it too. I don’t think too many people are excited about Final Fantasy 14 right now considering you guys failed at your first attempt to make a decent MMO. Now honestly I’ve seen a lot of gameplay footage on this game and looks generic as hell. It’s nothing I haven’t seen before in an MMO. Do yourself a favor and skip this one. If you want a MMO without all the stupid rules of what you’re allowed to do with them then just play Guild Wars 2. I hope you enjoyed reading this and if you did i’ll have more for you real soon.

Update: Apparently the new patch for Final Fantasy 14 isn’t working. People are still complaining about the exact same issues and they still can’t play the game. If they was any hope left for this game it’s gone now. Final Fantasy 14 is a mess of a game and it’s not worth purchasing by any means whatsoever. Stay away from this game. I have a top ten mmo list on here. Check out one of those instead of this.

The Bureau Xcom Declassified Review

Image

The Bureau Xcom Declassified has received negative reviews from as low as a 4 to as high as a 6. Fans of Xcom Enemy Unknown are bashing the game saying how far from Enemy Uknown it really is and how it was ripped from Mass Effect. While some of this is true surprisingly The Bureau has some good strategy elements in it and honestly it works.

I went into this game with a very negative mindset. I saw the gameplay and said to myself that this is nothing but a Mass Effect clone. Well it is and it isn’t. While the power wheel you have access to is ripped straight from Mass Effect and the cover and fire system is as well but that’s really the only thing. You have to really think ahead a few moves in this game.

You can’t play The Bureau like you play Mass Effect. Ordering your squad to take cover is very important in this game. What I really like about this gameplay is you can give your squad more than one order at a time. You can make them move into cover then immediately after have them perform an action. You can chain up some really nice combos between your squad this way and become a very effective fighting force. Combine that with the awesome weapons you find throughout the game and you’ve got yourself one hell of a game. The strategy is there guys… especially out on the battlefield. You can’t customize your base like you can in Enemy Unknown but the same amount of thinking you’ll do on the field of battle in Enemy Unknown is present here in this game too. So that’s the gameplay side of things. How’s the story?

Image

You play as Agent Carter a CIA agent that had a near death experience but somehow survived and escaped the onslaught from the aliens at the beginning of the game. You’re put in charge of the ground unit that goes around America fighting the aliens and trying to turn the tide of battle. Now I can’t say too much about the story without spoilers so i’ll simply say that it’s the best Xcom as a franchise has ever had but on it’s on it’s not a bad story but don’t expect a Mass Effect kind of story.

After each mission you’ll go back to base to rest up, level up your squad, assign new squad members, do various side quests, and get to know the various npcs scattered around the base. In a conversation you’ll get access to a Mass Effect like conversation wheel. The voice acting isn’t spectacular but it’s decent. Some people did a good job while others were just bad.

Another thing that’s really bad is your partners a.i. It’s god awful. You’ll have to repeatedly save their lives because they’ll run out in the middle of the street and get blown up. They’ve even shot me in the back before when I took cover in front of their cover and almost killed me. At first I thought an enemy was behind me but when I turned around I saw my own partner blasting away me.

It seems as if the “smart a.i.” applies only to the enemies that you face and not to your own squad and that gives them an unfair advantage. There’s also a point in the story that really made no sense to me and in my opinion should not have ever happened. I can’t say much more without ruining the game. The positives in this game out weigh the negatives and I don’t think this game deserves all the hate it’s been getting from everyone. I’ll admit I was one of the people saying this game sucked but after playing through it it won me over which is why i’m giving The Bureau Xcom Declassified a 7/10 and my recommendation. Give this game a chance it might just surprise you. I hope you enjoyed reading this and if you did i’ll have more for you real soon.

Lost Planet 3- Thoughts

Image

Lost Planet 3 has just released today and it’s a bit under the radar considering I haven’t heard or even read that much about it in the last few months. I kind of liked part 1, and never had a chance to play part 2 and now we have a part 3. I haven’t completely written off this series yet and who knows Lost Planet 3 might be a kickass game. I like the way gameplay looks, and it looks like they actually focused on making a decent story this time around.

I also love the icy surroundings and the way the monsters on the planet looks. Aside from that I fear this game might be a boring as the first one. Don’t get me wrong I liked the first one because of it’s environment but the game fell apart by the end. I never experienced part 2 but I was thrown off by it because of my experience with the first one. I might end up buying this when it’s on sale in a few months. I don’t see myself paying 50 bucks for a game I might not like. And there you have it guys my thought on Lost Planet 3. I hope you enjoyed reading this and if you did i’ll have more for you real soon.

Xcom Declassified- Tips, and Loadouts

Image

I’ve done a little research and many people are actually saying how hard this game is to play. I’ve put a little over 10 hours in the game and I think i’m closing in to the end of the game. I’m playing the game on the Veteran difficulty and these are some tips I have for you to actually breeze through the game with no little to no effort. Now it’s no mystery that the a.i. in this game is terrible. Your partners run out in the open without you telling them to and get themselves killed.

Or when they actually are in cover they die with one of two shots. Well here’s how to solve that {can’t solve the a.i. sorry but I can solve the dying thing} during your adventures you should come across a backpack schematic called the guardian pack. This pack allows you to increase your defenses. I placed one on all my agents and they don’t die as often as they used to.

I saw my guy get shot by a sniper, smashed by a Muton, and even take a rocket and he didn’t die so yeah I think the backpack works like a charm. Right now on my team I have a sniper, and engineer. They’re great together especially when you take your time and adjust the situation on the battlefield before you go in guns blazing. I personally like to set my team up before I fire a single shot at the enemy. I’ll have my sniper take point and open up the match with a critical shot. At the same time i’ll have my engineer placing a laser turret on the ground to fire at enemy rapidly while I throw my blob, and aerial drone out on the battlefield.

The key is to have as many “partners on the battlefield as you can. The blob is awesome because it can lure enemies out in the open by jumping on them. They’ll be too busy trying to get it off them so you’ll have a clear shot at them most times. The drone is your aerial support unit and does an excellent job at drawing enemy fire and taking them out too.

I have my drone in a support role. It’ll fly around us and heal us if we get hurt. So instead of Carter being the only one in the group that can heal you’ll have the drone as well. If you want to be effective with this group let the aliens gather together {they gather quite a lot in this game} and fire at you.

With your turret, drone, and blob you shouldn’t be worried about taking too much damage because they’ll be distracted by those. Let them gather in as close to each other as you can then choose your sniper and bombard them with an aerial strike. If it doesn’t kill everything in that radius then it’ll seriously injure them. For bigger targets like the Mutons I invested my sniper in the decoy instead of invisibility. Deploy your decoy at the larger enemies and they’ll be completely focused on it leaving their backs completely exposed to you. Keep your turret on the battlefield at all times along with your blob, and drone and you’ll do just fine against those heavily armored opponents.

Image   A great way to take out enemy snipers, is to lift them in the air and have your sniper ko them with a single shot. Lift is a great way to force your enemy out of cover. Deploy your laser turret, lift the strongest enemy of the group up and let it blast away until it dies. It’s also important to remember to lay mines around the area. A group of mines can make it extremely hard for anything to get to close to you.

I have my Carter equipped with a laser pulse rifle, and plasma sniper rifle. The plasma rifle will tear any enemy to apart. I only use it on tougher enemies and works like a charm. I gave my sniper a plasma sniper rifle as well and he’s a beast with it. I’m equipped with the Tacticians Backpack and I think that works well with my setup.  Image

Keep this advice in mind if you’re playing on higher difficulties or on any difficulty really if you want to make the most out of your sniper, and engineer. I’ll have another post up on the Assault, and support class soon. This isn’t a 100% sure way to win but it works for me and i haven’t found a situation that I can’t get out of using this guide. I’m sorry it’s taking so long for me to post my review on this game but i’m almost done with it so it’ll be up soon. I hope you enjoyed reading this and if you did i’ll have more for you real soon.

I finally got my own domain!

I didn’t think this day would come so soon but i’ve finally got my own domain! This means i’ll have more kickass content coming to you. I love what I do and you guys make it easier by coming here everyday and reading the things that I think are cool or at times suck. Thanks for finding me entertaining enough to visit everyday and as usual I hope you enjoyed reading this and if you did i’ll have more for you real soon.

8-Year Boy Shot A 90 Year Old and The Press Blames Video Games

It’s been too long since the press has accused video games of making children violent against either other children or adults. Apparently an 8 year boy thought it would be a good idea to shoot his grandfather/grandmother {i’m hearing a lot of different stories right now so bare with me} for no reason.

If there was a reason it’s not being made public but my point is they’re blaming video games for this. I’ve been playing violent video games my entire life and you don’t see me on the news. Are you telling me that if I play some Grand Theft Auto i’ll eventually try and murder random people walking down the street then attempt to rob a convenient store while having a shootout with cops, swat, and the army? I don’t think so.

As a gamer I can say that I personally play games because I love them but also because when i’m having a rough day there’s nothing like taking out your frustrations by putting in a game and fucking shit up. I played Mortal Kombat a lot as a kid and you don’t see me performing a fatality on anyone that told me the word no.

I honestly think the caretaker of this child refused to give him a cookie and he snapped and blew their brains out. Whoever this kids parents are, are idiots because they left a loaded gun around for the kid to find in the first place. Not every violent thing a child does is because of video games. Maybe this is just one really messed up kid or maybe {and this is really what i think} there’s more going on then we’ll ever know.

I hope you enjoyed reading this and if you did i’ll have more for you real soon.
