What’s the Deal?

 

Hi all ! As promised  I am back. Still having difficulty loading word press but I guess it is what it is. So much time has passed.  We as gamers are getting ready for E3 2018. This year is looking to be great. There have been tons of leaks and rumors. I’m not going to discuss them here, I would rather talk about what each company needs to do to be successful this E3.

I would like to start with Microsoft. They have taken a back seat this generation releasing  one of the most powerful systems with no games. Sure we have State of Decay 2 and Sea of Thieves but these games are nothing to write home about.  Microsoft needs to bring the games, new ones to be exact. Some how they have lost their thunder they had during the 360 era.  We need games like tomorrow needs  yesterday! Sony on the other hand has been on top by releasing game after game. Not only are they releasing them but these games have good scores. The PlayStation 4 maybe at the end of its life cycle but it sure does have stellar games. This year Sony is only focusing on four games, which at first seemed to be miniscule. Upon further investigation you will learn that they will be going deeper than just game trailers. Since they have been delivering game after game the focus on four games is acceptable.

Well that takes care of Microsoft and Sony,where does that leave Nintendo ? They are already in the winners seat. They are riding high off the success of the Switch. If you have been following this blog you would know that Nintendo took first place at last years E3. The announcements, the games and trailers all made for spectacular show. If they can repeat what they did last year they will take home the crown again.

Here’s hoping that we will have a great E3. I just wanted to give my thoughts on what I think each company needed to do. Do you agree with my thoughts? Do you think I was too tough on Microsoft?

As always share, comment and follow! Until next time.

Technical Difficulties

download

Hi all, its been a long time since I wrote anything. Happy New Year! Time is flying I tell you. I have been wanting to write for the longest time but I have been having technical difficulties. The website no longer loads pages that I need in order to write. As I write this i am hoping it will post correctly.

There has been a ton of games that have released and I plan on talking about them soon.

One of which is God of War 4, perhaps one of the best games ever created. God of War 4 represents everything that gamers crave.  The single player experience has been lacking recent years, sure there has been games like Horizon Zero Dawn but it seems like the  focus has been multiplayer games. Yes I’m looking at you Microsoft.  Sony seems to understand what gamer’s want.

I plan on going into detail in another post on what I think each company needs to do to satisfy their fan base.

Well that’s it for now. Until next time, please continue to follow, like and comment! What do you think about the direction each gaming company is taking ?

 

 

Working Your Gift

Yup, here’s another post that doesn’t talk about video games! This topic was in my spirit and I could not get rid of it. So, I thought the best thing to do was write about it.

Each of us has a unique gift. This gift varies from person to person. Some have one, others have 5. I believe that our gifts will make room for us. Meaning our gifts will take us places if we only work them. I am working mines right now by simply writing. You see, writing has been my specialty since I was younger. I majored in Creative Writing/English in College. It comes easy to me and its something that I enjoy. Your gift might be making cakes or singing. If you perfect your gift it will begin to make room for you.

How do you work your gift? Simply by putting it to use. Not sure what your gift is? What comes easy to you? What do you enjoy the most? What are you good at? Turn that talent into a gift. Using your gift to help others will also open doors.

Now I didn’t wanna leave this out, one’s gift maybe inventing video games or simply playing them and being successful at them, whatever your gift is work it. To be honest I initially had planned on getting a scripture that talked about gifts and break it down but this will suffice.
I just wanted to offer two cents as it relates to using our gifts.

Tekken 7: My Thoughts

I was really looking forward to Tekken 7.  As a fighting game fanatic, I approached the game with sheer excitement. However, after playing the game I felt like it was missing something. Sure it has nice graphics and the combos that you learned over the years still work.

Well what’s missing? I don’t know how to answer this question. The game seems incomplete especially when it comes down to the story. Its short like this post! HA ,there, I said it. I expected so much more from this game.

Tekken 7 also introduced rage art which allows you or your opponent to launch a devastating attack in a last effort to win. This is where Tekken 7 loses its fun in my  opinion. All a losing person has to do is launch the particular move and they will win the match. This has been a complaint I have been hearing. Its a good fighting game to say the least.

In terms of Tekken games I prefer Tekken Tag Tournament. Its something about this game.  Perhaps its the fact that it came right after Tekken 3, which is another favorite.

What’s your favorite Tekken game? Do you agree with me about Tekken 7?

Feeling Retro

What’s up? So I felt a little retro. I thought that I would go back down memory lane and play some Super Mario Brothers 3.  Well all I can say is that I tried lol. I kept dying, how you ask? Well those little mushroom triangle things kept touching me. (They have a official name which I don’t want to use). Anyway, I kept dying to the point where I was like this is not working out.

I used to play Super Mario Brothers 3 as a child and had fun doing so. This time the game seems ultra difficult. I couldn’t even make it past the second level. Despite this it was a blast to play.

Have you played any retro games as a youngster that seems harder today?

E3 2017, Nintendo Switch, Zelda Breath of the wild.

Hi All! It has been a few months since I typed anything. Welcome to all the new followers! E3 has come and gone, if you know me well enough you would know that their isn’t a surprise in who won e3. My vote goes to Nintendo! Mario odyssey made its presence known through demos, videos and interviews. Nintendo won e3 by announcing a new Metroid game. Enough about E3 2017.

The Nintendo Switch is still hard to come by, but the little system is doing amazing sales wise. I have one and I am glad to say that it is a fun system to own.  That brings me to my next topic, Zelda Breath of the Wild. This game is one of the most realistic games I have ever played. Run too long and link gets tired, climb too far up and he falls down. This adds a level of realism not seen in many popular games. Its funny to say that initially, I thought that link was named Zelda!!!!! Since then I have learned that he is named link.   Me and Zelda: the Breath of the Wild have a love and hate relationship I love the game but hate when I get stuck. When I first started the game I thought I was going to be led around and told what to do but I was surely fooled.  I ran around until I ran into an abandoned church like structure, I thought I could find refuge their but to my surprise there was a beast waiting for me. I had no weapon to fight and every time  I would attempt to hit him I would die.  This beast would chase me for short distances until I would stay away from it. Needless to say me and this Zelda game have some time to spend together.

Who do you think won E3? Have you tried to get a Nintendo Switch? What has been your experience with Zelda Botw?

My thoughts on Injustice 2

injustice2

Injustice 2 is more like injustice 1 and that’s a good thing. The game is packed with single player content and  a ton of characters to choose from. From first glance you can tell some work had been done to the graphics. After all this game was made for newer gen consoles.

Characters have super moves that are a spectacle to watch. My favorite two people so far are Cat Woman and The Flash. I’m making it a habit this time of only choosing these two as I strive to play better.

The game has stellar sound which is a plus for anyone who owns a sound system. If I had one complaint it would be about the block button being configured to pressing back on the d-pad.  In my opinion Injustice 2 plays much better. I was able to pull off combos very easily.

This game is a must buy for fighting fans. Now Tekken 7 is coming out in a few days, those who can only choose one to purchase have a serious decision on there hands.  Tekken 7 is a 3d fighter while injustice 2 is 2d. It all depends on what you like.

This was just my quick thoughts on this game. Have you played Injustice 2?
