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?

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 ?

 

 

My thoughts on Injustice 2

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?

Sony What’s going on?

Hi all.

I dreaded writing this particular post as E3 is fast approaching.  I know that Sony is winning the console war but there is need of improvement. In my last post I wrote about if one should buy a PS4 Pro. This time I want to examine what’s going on with  Sony.

Sony has had its hand in many cookie jars. Lets start with the PS Vita.  PS Vita was one of the most technologically advanced handhelds of its time. Unfortunately, this could not save it from its demise. Sony stopped supporting it and third party support totally ceased.  However, the Vita did have an install base which is still going strong today.  This brings me to my point. Could the Vita have been saved?  At the time the Vita was in direct competition with Ipad’s and Iphone’s as younger audiences would prefer such a platform.

Now with the success of the Nintendo Switch one could only ask if the Vita would succeed in todays time? I think it would. If Sony would have kept up the support of the system it would have grown into something better. Sure it was missing the triggers that the regular dual shock controller has but a peripheral could have been made to address this issue.

Let’s examine the next cookie jar. The PS4 Pro. Sure, last time I said that if you were into graphics that you should buy one. But to be honest, Sony hasn’t been releasing patches to games. This is a complaint I have been hearing from owners of the PS4 PRO. They feel as Sony has abandoned them like they did the Vita.  One could only hope that this could be addressed at E3.

The next thing is PS VR. There aren’t that many games for it. Has Sony abandoned it as well? I think not but there is need for attention and more games. This makes me ask Sony what are you doing?

What’s your thoughts on the things I mentioned? Do you feel that Sony is doing a good job? Do you agree or disagree with what I said?

Should you buy a PS4 Pro?

videogames

PS4 is one of the most popular systems out now. You can say that Sony has won the console race. All these things are good, but should you invest in a PS4 pro ? This is a tricky question.

For one, the PS4 pro is more powerful than the original PS4. This doesn’t necessarily mean that the power will be used. There are games that have received a patch which makes them run at higher resolutions or higher frame rates.  The problem is there aren’t many that take advantage of this.

Now we have the introduction of the Xbox Scorpio which will be an upgrade of the Xbox one.  The Scorpio is suppose to output in true 4k. Which is something that the PS pro does not do. Perhaps the Scorpio will make Sony release more patches for games.

In my opinion a standard PS4 will do you fine unless your into graphics then I would say get the PS4 Pro.

What’s your thoughts about the PS4 Pro? Do you have the system? As always comment, like and share.

 

Horizon Zero Dawn Best graphics ever?

Horizon Zero Dawn isn’t even out yet and its being declared to have the best console graphics ever created. What are your thoughts?  The game is pretty but I’m sure there are other contenders. The game comes out Tuesday February 28th. Will you be getting copy?

Mouth Wideopen

Hi there. It’s been a while since I wrote anything, 3 months to be exact. They say if you don’t anything good to say, don’t say nothing at all. I must say it’s been hard for me to bite my tongue with all that has been going on in the gaming community. Let’s start with Street fighter 5 releasing with limited content. The game looks amazing and plays well but it lacks the content the other games before it had. I have to admit I knew this before I purchased the game because the content is going to be patched in at a later date. This should not be the standard for games and maybe the reason why the game hasn’t sold that much.

Next let’s talk about the rumored Ps4.5. The console is being developed by Sony and is said to include new components that would allow for either gaming in 4k or video streaming in 4k. If this is true, it may be a slap in the face to all the ps4 owners out there. Many are thinking they have the latest and greatest console to date only to find out that there is another version coming out.

Finally I would like to talk about PlayStation VR. This initially was exciting to me. The thought of being immersed in my games made me ecstatic. Then I figured out just how much it is going to cost to get the experience. First you have to buy the VR headset which is going to cost $400.00 then you have to buy the PlayStation Move and then you have to buy the camera. All of these things add up. At this point I don’t feel too excited, I guess it has to grow on me. I still find myself only wanting the controller in hand and TV. I guess you can call me old fashion. I had to give my thoughts on what’s been going on in the industry.

What are your thoughts? Do you feel that Street Fighter 5 should have been delayed? Do you feel like PlayStation VR is an essential piece of hardware that every gamer must own?
