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?

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!

 

 

My thoughts on MKX

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.

Are the graphics on the PS4 and Xbox one being held back by cross generational gaming? Is the gaming industry being held back?

The Xbox360 and PS3 are still getting games. One game that come to mind is Mortal Kombat  X. Sure the graphics look ok but if the game was only for next generation systems the graphics would look much better. This goes for any game being developed cross generationally.

You may be a  person who says that graphics don’t matter, I on the other hand like eye candy.

Do you feel that cross generational gaming is hurting the industry? Are graphics being jeopardized?

Earning Achievements

Its fun to get recognition for the work or tasks you have completed.

If you are playing on a Microsoft console you will get achievements which have a number value and if your playing on the Playstation system you will unlock trophies.

You can read the name of each trophy or achievement so that you can select which one you want to unlock.

I play randomly unlocking as I go along rather than  picking and choosing which one to unlock.

How do you go about unlocking achievements/trophies? Do you just randomly play unlocking them as you go?

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?
