Ninja Turtles Is Back!

Image

I’ve waited for so long for a good Ninja Turtle game to come out and it’s finally here. Ninja Turtles Out Of The Shadows came out yesterday and guys it’s awesome. The gameplay is better than it’s ever been in any Ninja Turtles game and you can tell that the development team really care about this game and it’s not just a quick cash grab. The graphics in this game are awesome and I love the look of every turtle. You can easily tell them apart {not just by the color of their headbands}. Ninja Turtles is 15 dollars on Steam, the Xbox Marketplace, and the Playstation Store. It’s a steal for that price and if you’re a Ninja Turtle fan you should check it out. Ninja Turtles is back and it looks better than ever! I hope you enjoyed reading this and if you did i’ll have more for you real soon.

Killer Instinct News

Image

I’ve waited a long, long time for a new Killer Instinct game to be announced and it seems the wait is finally over. Microsoft has announced that Killer Instinct will be available on the Xbox One when it launches in November. I for one am highly excited to see it in action. Killer Instinct will be free to play so to speak. If you go the free to play route you’ll get access to a single fighter {Jago} at launch. It’s a good way for you to decide if you want to buy the game or not and experience the full package.

Individual fighters can purchased for 5 dollars each or you can buy the Combo Breaker pack and get them all for 20 dollars. Killer Instinct also has an Ultra Edition that costs 40 dollars that has all six characters {plus the two dlc characters}, extra costumes, accessories, and to top all that off the original Killer Instinct game. The ultra pack is the way to go if you’re going to get this game. Microsoft has also announced that they plan on having new season for Killer Instinct every year for the span of the Xbox One’s life cycle. This is a very interesting idea and I look forward to seeing exactly what they have planned for this franchise in the future.

Each new season of Killer Instinct is going to add new characters, and content to the game. Right now there is no story mode in Killer Instinct but there will be one implemented in the game in future seasons. When Killer Instinct launches it will have a practice mode, local and competitive online play. Only time will tell if Killer Instinct can compete with other fighting games like Mortal Kombat, and Street Fighter. I really hope that it does because I want to see this franchise succeed.

Season 2 of Killer Instinct will be released in 2014. From what I understand season 2 will be the same price as season 1. You can pay 20 dollars for all the characters or 40 dollars for the entire package. There would have to be a lot of future content for me to personally go out and spend 40 dollars for new content on a game. Killer Instinct looks good and I can’t wait to try it out for myself.

Here’s a link to some gameplay http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BgI16r8l5Vw I hope you enjoy it and I hope you enjoyed reading this and if you did i’ll have more for you real soon.

Wii U- Exclusive Titles, and Thoughts

There are a lot of quality games coming to the Wii U. Nintendo has a very impressive lineup of games coming out and i’ve chosen my personal favorites ones that has me the most interested in getting a Wii U.

Image

Sonic Lost World looks amazing. Instead of Sonic going up against Eggman they’re teaming up to take out a greater evil. I can’t wait to try this game out.

Image

Bayonetta 2 is coming to the Wii U console sometime next year. Platinum Games is taking their sweet time making this game. It’s going to be awesome…

Image

I love everything Donkey Kong so it’s no surprise that I want this game. It looks like I’ll have a lot of fun with this game.

Image

Mario Kart 8 is a beautiful game and I can’t wait to play it. Mario Kart and Sonic All Star Racing are my two favorite racing games.

Image

I know Pikmin 3 is already out but i’m super excited to get it when I get my Wii U. This is one of those games that’ll keep me busy for months.

Image

Who isn’t looking forward to Windwaker HD remake? I loved this game when it first came out and i’m getting this one to so I can experience everything all over again.

Image

Luigi’s not a sidekick in this game. This is his time in the spotlight and it looks awesome!

Image

I still haven’t made up my mind on this one but a four player Mario game is something that has me curious. I’ll keep tabs on this one.

Image

Super Smash Brothers Universe looks kickass. Must I say anything more?

Image

The Wonderful 101 looks awesome. It has nice graphics, and awesome looking gameplay. Not to mention that you’re a bunch of superheroes… since when is that not cool.

And there you have a list of Wii U exclusives. All of these games look really good and while i’m not 100% sold on this console yet I will say that I’m more excited about it now then I ever was before. I hope you enjoyed reading this and if you did i’ll have more for you real soon.

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.
