Much Ado about nothing.

Happy New Year! It’s been a while since I wrote anything. I spent my time absorbing ideas from others. Without further ado here goes my thoughts,

Chances are you have heard this title before if you ever were required to study Shakespeare.  This was one of my favorites from the series of books that was written.

Much Ado about Nothing has a different meaning but I wanted to use the title literally.

The line has been drawn in the sand as it relates to the PS4 and Xbox One.

You might be wondering how so?

 

Well, the PS4 has Street Fighter 5 coming while Xbox One has the next installment of Tomb Raider.

Sure its been said that Tomb Raider is a timed exclusive but who really knows the truth?

I gotta say that I am glad that it is being published by Microsoft, maybe it will be advertised better.

Do you think there is a big deal being made about Tomb Raider or Street Fighter 5?

Are you taking a side in the sand as it relates to a specific console?

Call Of Duty Advanced Warfare

download (1)

The big reveal of Call of Duty Advanced Warfare at Gamescom happened this week!

Overall Call of Duty has had its share of critics over the years and it’s been said that the game never changes.

Well… you can take that argument and throw it away. 

The game has changed graphically and game-play wise. 

It borrows from fps brothers like Titan Fall, Battlefield and Killzone. 

What you have is COD at the core but a much more advanced game that continues to add and add until you have something similar to most of the games already out. 

Customization seemed to be one of the biggest features of this particular game.

There are some negatives that I see, like aiming while jumping during boost jump and specifically targeting another players head.  Get caught running in front of someone and its lights out. 

One of the things that I liked was the coop score streak where one person can share their streak with another. 

For the most part, this game will be fun to play.

Sure there will be people taking advantage of certain ways to killer their opponent, but at the end it’s all fun and games.

What are your thoughts on Call of Duty Advanced Warfare multiplayer?  Did you watch the reveal?

Did Internet Ruin The Party?

There used to be a time where gaming was difficult. Strategy guides were a given amongst the most avid gamer’s. If you didn’t want to spend the money on buying one you would borrow a friends or even go to the store and read it desperately trying to get past the part your stuck on.

Shhhh….. Just make sure you didn’t tell anyone that you were reading the magazine and not planning on buying it.

The Internet brought so much to gaming. It all started with cheats.  Cheat your way through the game why don’t you. Then came video game tutorials which totally put the print guides into an early grave. No longer would you have to read, all you had to do was watch.

With this change however, comes spoilers. Games today are often ruined before one even gets the chance to play it. If you are a member of any of the social networks you will see people talk about games often revealing there ending

My top 5 list of Video game characters with the biggest Head!

So I know that this one is going to be pretty funny and that’s why I wanted to do it. I don’t think you will find a list anywhere mentioning such things.

Sit back and enjoy the popcorn, the invisible popcorn that is, as I list the biggest headed characters to ever come into extence.

 

1. Donkey Kong -Up first is our fury friend that has been around for a while, since before I was born come to the think of it. None other than Donkey Kong, yes his head is really big, bigger than big itself.

2.  Up next is Mario- You can see his head from miles away. A balloon has nothing on him.  A common misconception is that he would use his head to break bricks when in actuality he uses his fists.

3. Kirby- That little pink circle thing head is huge. In fact his entire body is his head. He looks like a walking whoopie cushion.

4. Next would be the goombas. Sure they are iconic in every way in their mission to stop Mario and his friends but they have the biggest head ever. It’s a wonder that they can even wear a cat suit in Super Mario 3d World!

5. So who would make it to the end of the list you ask? Well….. There is a tie!

It’s a tie between two iconic video game celebrities. One who has been on vacation since the 90’s and early 2000’s and the other who has an upcoming game.

ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY of EnglishgamerUninhibited!!!!!!!

I know it’s been a while since I wrote anything but that is about to change.

This month marks the one year anniversary of this blog!

Last year this time I was just trying to establish a place that was different from all the other blogs. I had so many ideas in my head as it relates to life, gaming and literature that I had to get them out.

I never would have thought that this blog would have lasted this long and I am truly grateful.

I felt it was important to discuss various topics about gaming and literature.

As of late my posts have learned more towards video games however, I will eventually start talking about literature again. It’s amazing how so much could come from one idea.

The embrace that I felt from the blogging community was indescribable as I was welcomed with open arms.

This is a short post, what are your favorite topics of the past year on this blog? Why did you follow this blog? Would you recommend it to others? Be sure to share and comment and follow as always thanks!

Gaming and Religion

Sometimes I wonder if games the games that we play will send us half way to hell! Yes hell is real.

download (5) images (1)download (6) download (7)

Kill this, Stomp him, and Finish her, all these things make me think about how religion has apart if any, in the games that we play.

As a Christian, I look the Bible in which says not to kill but as a gamer in the games that I play killing is not an option, it’s a requirement.

I have encountered people who were changed mentally by their personal beliefs and religion to the point where the games that they played, they could no longer play. For example, Gears of War was suddenly too violent, Injustice Gods among Us, had the name of God speaking to many God, not just one.

The games began to conflict with their personal relationships as well. I think that gaming is a great hobby to have and should not be taken seriously as you are not committing the crimes and or actions on your own in real life.

Virtual gaming is just that, virtual. I don’t think that gaming should affect ones religion.  Where religion would affect our gaming is if you begin to imitate the actions that your characters are doing on screen in real life.

I believe there are consequences to our actions and the road that you take in life can lead you to your destination, the one that you choose, Heaven or Hell.

This is why I don’t think gaming should influence our behavior though, in my research I found that it does influence some.  I belief that with a balance of religion or some type of belief, one will stay clear from the influence of the characters on screen.  Not only religion but some type of moral and or standard will also stop one from engaging in negative behavior.
