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?

Are graphics Important?  What about Power?

Are graphics important? Do we need to be stimulated with our eyes to appreciate a games worth?

Super Mario Brothers on the NES lacked the graphical finesse we see today but it possessed a challenge.

The Xbox One and the PS4 have both raised the bar in terms of graphic fidelity but does it matter? It depends on the person I guess.

I love graphics but gameplay is just as important.  You may prefer gameplay overall. Games like Horizon Zero Dawn continue to blur the lines between great graphics and gameplay.  The game received a 9.3 from Ign.com. I must admit that I was sold on graphics alone as a child.  I left the Nintendo Entertainment System for the Sony PlayStation.  It was something about the graphics on PlayStation that stood out to me.

 The first game to ever catch my eye was Tekken.  When I saw, the character named Jun cracking another character bones it made me jump inside. Not because I was feeling the pain but because I was intrigued by the graphics.

As you can see graphics do play apart but to what extent, you decide.

Now let’s talk power! The Xbox Scorpio is coming out this Holiday season. So far all we have been hearing is about its specs. The specs are impressive, don’t get me wrong but the games are just as important. You can have all the power in the world but without any games it means nothing.

What if there are games? Are developers taking advantage of the most powerful console ever created?  Will they be held back by the original Ps4 and the original Xbox one? These are questions that gamers want answered.

If you follow this blog, I did a post not too long ago titled “Dear Microsoft what are you doing”? You can read it here. In it I ask the big questions as to what they are doing. Turns out that they have some tricks up their sleeves for this year’s E3. I am not an informant or anything of that nature. It’s just wishful thinking.

I’m looking forward to the graphical bar being raised with project Scorpio.

Are you looking forward to E3? Are graphics important?

Project Scorpio!!!!!!!!!

What’s going on? Today Microsoft has announced the specs of the Xbox Scorpio. If you remember, in one of my last posts I went in on Microsoft asking the question What are you doing? In turns out they are up to something. Project Scorpio will be one of the most powerful console to date.  Most of all it will be able to play Xbox one games and  Xbox 360 backwards compatible games.

For the specs list go here.

Are you excited for project Scorpio? I know that I am.  What do you think of its specs? As always be sure to follow, like and comment.

Dear Microsoft, what are you doing?

Lately Microsoft has been the talk of the town with the Xbox One not having as many exclusives as Sony. With most of the games going to pc, gamers are on edge.  Seems like they are not caring as much as they should. Console gamers don’t care about being able to play anywhere but on their consoles.

Games are getting canceled left and right. I believe this all started with E3 when the Xbox one was first announced. There message was confusing and DRM practices made people dislike them. They haven’t regained their audience as PS4 has won the console race.

At this moment Microsoft is moving around like a chicken with its head cut off. Sure they may have some hidden games in development which they may reveal at this E3 but until then it feels like they have lost their footing. The Xbox division needs to realize that gamers want games, not just UI system updates.

I feel that Microsoft was its best during the days of the original Xbox . The system was very powerful and had a ton of games to boot. But most of all their message was clear and precise.

Xbox is my system of choice and I hope that they get their act together before its too late.

What’s your system of choice? What do you think of Microsoft’s current direction? As always follow, like and comment!

 

 

Gears Of War 4: My Thoughts

If you have been following this blog, you would know how much I adore Gears OF War 3.I loved the characters and the story. It took me some time to get used to Gears of war 4. After all it is a game without Locust or Queen Myrrah.  We are no longer fighting for the horde, that is if your locust. I have to admit I didn’t like the Swarm or the Robots you have to fight.  However, once I got past that I began to enjoy the game.

What we have is a game that is nothing short of amazing.  Gears4 is packed with action from the story mode to horde mode.  Playing as Marcus’s son makes the game that much better. It’s Gears for a younger generation.  The multiplayer part of the game is 60 fps which is a step up from Gears3.

It is my opinion that the characters are less chatty during gameplay than the characters of Gears3. This takes nothing away from the game. If I had to say something negative it would be the micro transactions.  This is ok because you can use in game currency to purchase items as well.

Overall, Gears4 caught me by surprise. It truly is a game worth playing. So what are you waiting for? Get the lancer and start shooting.

And the E3 2015 the winner is……………………..

Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo all brought their A game to their respective conferences. Each one was flasher than the next. But who had the best conference? Well depending on who you ask, your answer will be different. Microsoft started out strong announcing their line up of games and 360 backwards compatibility. Sony did the same as expected, one of the highlights for me was hearing about Shenmue 3. That game alone got me excited. Some people felt that Nintendo digital conference was lack luster.

So enough with the chit chat, who do  I think won E3 2015?

I have to say my vote is with Microsoft. Being able to play Xbox 360 games for free without a service fee spoke volumes. The game line-up stood out more to me as well. How can I forget to mention the car that was lowered on stage, that was cool too!

What are your thoughts? Who do you think won E3 2015?

My thoughts on MKX

download (1)

It’s time for the next Mortal Kombat tournament are you ready? Mortal Kombat x is one of the most graphic video games to date. The amount of gore that it has is unimaginable. Much like the other Mk games, earth is fighting against the Out world to save humanity. There are new faces, one of which has become my favorite, Cassie Cage.

Smack, stab and jab your opponent to ensure victory.Once you are successful you can finish your opponent. Mortal Kombat X offers a slew of gut busting fatalities.

The story mode shares the same depth as MK9 taking a while to complete.

Characters have distinct move sets where you will be able to tell them apart.

Overall Mortal Kombat X is a solid fighter which I recommend you pick up.

Those are my thoughts on MK X , Be sure to follow, comment and like.
