Games I Want to See in E3

I haven’t posted anything in a while because in all honesty nothing interesting has been going on in my life(social and gaming). I have playing Smite recently, might post an impression on that in a week or two. But besides April is ending pretty soon which means E3 is 1 month closer(when is it, mid June?) so I figured I’d make a short list of games I’d like to see during E3. Now obviously I want to see new IPs but since I can’t predict them this list is mostly stuff we know of or exist in some shape or form, also if anyone is reading this and remembers the games I wanted to see at E3 2013 knows the two obvious games that’ll be on this list so I’ll just get those out-of-the-way now.

Fallout 4

God dammit Bethesda, I know you’re making the freaking game, let us see it already! Also a few other notes, NO XBOX EXCLUSIVE DLC! & no cross gen, only current gen systems please. I’m hoping the gameplay improves on Fallout New Vegas instead of going on Fallout 3(which was the one developed by Bethesda). Few other things I want to see on Fallout 4 is a better third person camera, I like to see my character, after all, what’s the point of having a customized character if I can’t even see him/her, hell, I can’t even see their feet. Which is another thing I hope Fallout 4 has, letting me see my character’s body when I look down. There are some mods that already do this on PC but it would be nice to have that in there day one. Also no dumbing down, please. Skyrim was really shallow because it was dumb downed to appeal to casuals. It’s so bad in fact that personally I find the vanilla gameplay absolutely unplayable, it’s extremely boring.

 

Super Smash Bros 4

Obvious is obvious. This is the game that will make me purchase a Wii U. I want this game to be playable at E3, which will most likely happened for at least the 3DS version since that version comes out in the Summer(fingers crossed that it’s no later than mid July).  Also for the love of god give me my Mewtwo! And like I’ve mention in my previous post I still wan’t to see Ridley just to have someone who’s the complete opposite of Little Mac(Huge and is only good in the air). Now with the two obvious ones out the way lets start with games I haven’t mentioned before.  Continue reading

I Won a Copy of Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag!!

 

So many of you might not know but Ubisoft had this little competition (http://uplay.ubi.com/en-US/events/next-gen/gifts) where they were giving away free copies of Assassin’s Creed 4 for both XB1 and PS4, season pass for AC4, or Just Dance 4 for PS4 and XB1. I dropped the Assassin’s Creed series after the third one, I was a huge supporter of both the present day story and the historical story. but after the ending of the 3rd which I won’t spoil for anyone out of respect I had to drop the series. The game that was the supposed ending of the trilogy was just so, so bad and felt like(and most likely was) written at the very last second to continue milking the series. Hell, Revelations the game that was leading up to AC3 had more closure. Now I know that AC4 is apparently the best one in the series but I refuse to buy it, sometimes you just got to say no. But then I hear about this Next-Gen prize thing Ubi was doing.

Now last Saturday was the last day to win a game/or season pass, it was also my first time hearing of this competition from lurking in Neogaf(I was perma banned so I can’t post anymore 😦 ) and the last batch of codes were being given out at 8pm, which was about 20 minutes away so I figured, eh why not give it a shot, I’m kind of feeling that next gen drought anyway. Then boom, I won a copy of AC4 for the PS4! I’ve been waiting for my code for almost a week, I started to doubt I won too but I can see my username on the winner list so that cleared up. Unfortunately since I didn’t get the code yet I highly doubt I’ll be playing it anytime soon even once it arrives since school starts Monday. But, if it gets here tomorrow or Monday I’ll try my best to just blow through it before Monday.

My Experience with Playstation 4

First off let me share how I got my PS4, I didn’t pre-order the system in time so they were all sold out. Thursday, the day before it came out Spike was airing a PlayStation 4 launch event with “jaw dropping” announcements.(spoiler alert: all announcements were pretty lame, also Infamous was quietly delayed to March) After the event I went I logged onto Amazon to check on my ps4 game orders(they had a buy 2 get 1 free deal, I picked up Knack, Killzone and Need for Speed which I’m still waiting on) and then I just went to look up the PS4 just to be saddened that I won’t be getting one anytime soon and to my surprise, they had the system in stock, I couldn’t believe my eyes but I immediately ordered one, if it was an error and it gets cancelled, eh I was expecting that, but if it actually goes through…. happy day! And it did go through, so my ps4 arrived here on Saturday, the day after its launch, and not only did I get the system but I also got the day one edition as well(the one that contains $10 psn credit, 30 day music unlimited trial & 30 day ps+ trial!

Now since I don’t have Amazon Prime & I wasn’t expecting to get a ps4 so soon I didn’t have my games yet, they arrived the following week on Tuesday, so what I mostly played during Saturday to Monday were free to play games, Resogun & revisiting Sound Shapes. I also had Call of Duty Ghost, the free $10 were used to upgrade the ps3 copy to the ps4 version. But, I’m not a fan Call of Duty, it was for my brother, according to him Ghost is the weakest CoD game so he didn’t play it much. The game I ended up playing the most was Warframe and Resogun though. Even after I got my games most of my time still goes to Warframe. I’m pretty sure that game has some kind of story but I have no idea what it is. The reason I play it so much is because it’s practically the only game my friends and I can agree to play together. Hell, sometimes I don’t even know what the objective is, I just keep walking forward, killing aliens and cracking some jokes. Oh, and before I forget, the Dualshock 4 is just pure sexy. it only has one flaw, the d-pad isn’t as good as the Vita’s. Personally I think they should have just gave the DS4 the exact same one just a bit bigger, but it’s still a good d-pad. Currently the ps4 isn’t in my room(even though I paid for it :P) for two reasons: one, I don’t have a wired connection so I have to use wi-fi, which normally isn’t a problem since everything in my room uses wi-fi but for some reason the wi-fi on the ps4 is just absolute trash. it took more than an hour to download a 350MB file. and two, with the Fall semester almost coming to an end I’ve been receiving a lot of work to do so I have almost no time to play anyway. However when I do have time to play, my brother is normally sleeping so I can’t play the ps4, oh wait! I have a Vita, don’t I?

Let me just say that the internet in my home is pretty crappy & very inconsistent, even when connected via an ethernet cable so your experience might be a lot better than mines, but even with all the issues my internet has remote play works VERY well. Normally I play Knack or Resogun on my Vita before I go to bed and it’s really good. Sometimes I lag which leads to death(especially in Knack since I’m playing it on hard) but like I said, I believe that’s cause of my connection. So back to the ps4 itself, a lot of folks seem to be having hardware problems with their system(especially people who ordered through Amazon, like me) but luckily mines works perfectly fine. There was only one time that I had an issue with the system; no game was starting up, it would just sit in the loading screen so I turned off the system and booted it back up but for some reason I wasn’t getting no display. disconnecting and reconnecting the hdmi didn’t do squat but when I disconnected the entire system and reconnected it was back to its former great self. I’ve had no issues with the hardware since then. The UI for the system is really great as well, so good that I would love to see the Vita get an update that gives it a similar UI as well, as I’ve shared before I’m not a huge fan of the current Vita UI.

Although one thing that I don’t quite understand is the recording feature of the ps4. I’ve tried to use it before but it doesn’t record what I want. I thought that once you press the record button it would automatically save the last 15 minutes of game play, but most of the time it either takes a photo(I have almost 30 random photos on my ps4 already) or it records something really dumb that I didn’t want, the menu of a game or something. But besides that minor issue I’m really enjoying my ps4. The games are great, the system is fast, really I don’t got much negative things to say about this bad boy. I hope if you’re reading this and also have a ps4 you’re enjoying it as much as I am & if you don’t have one I hope you get one soon.

I Hate Pokemon because I Love it too Much!!

Gah ever since I bought Pokemon X & Y(which I was so excited for I went out of my way to go down to Manhatten before school started to get it three days early) I haven’t played any other game. I bought Killzone Mercenaries and the game is awesome but then I got GTA5 so I didnt play it as much anymore. I’m halfway through GTA but then Pokemon came out… All my time has been dedicated to Pokemon since then. I even bring my 3DS(the special edition pokemon one which I recently purchased just for this game) to school everyday just so I can play some more on my ride to and from school. Haven’t touched my Vita and I rarely play my ps3 now since Pokemon. The game is just soooo awesome, plus all the starters are amazing. I dare say these are the best starters we’ve ever had. My only issue with the starters is Delphox or however its spelt, the design is too feminine to work for both genders imo, but its still good imo.

Game is so great and for the first time ever I actually won an online match(quite a few of them actually)!! I gotta put the game down for a while though.  I got a test coming up this Monday for my computer class, I can’t fail this since we only get three tests including the final so this one test counts for 33% of my grade ;(. pretty annoying since most of it is basically remembering a bunch of computer codes off the top of your head.

I’ve been gone since FOREVAH

3d5db-little-big-planet-ps-vita

There hasn’t really been much of a reason for it honestly. Just haven’t felt like posting anything. 😡 Well since last time I posted I bought The Last of Us and beat it. Pretty sad ending if you ask me. Also saw Sony’s Gamescom presentation, and let me just say I’ve lost all hope on the Vita ever picking up steam. Once again it was just port, port, port and more indie games. I have no problem with indie games, I do have a problem when the game has been for quite some time and they begin boasting about it like it’s the hottest shit to ever grace the system. I didn’t spend $250 to play ports and old indie games that I can get cheaper on PC.

I’ve already cancelled my pre-order for Killzone Mercenaries, no sense in buying more games on a system I’ve lost complete faith in. Once I beat Persona 4 Golden I’ll either sell the system or hold on to it to see if it’s any good at remote play(which if we’re being totally honest I doubt it’ll work as advertised.) Also I lol’d at the memory card price drops, it’s only like $20 cheaper now. the 32gb should cost $50 max, and the 4gb should be included with the system itself. Whatever though, makes no sense in worrying about memory card prices now. Don’t even get me started on the awful camera crap. Whoever was the camera director should either be fired or something. Overall I’d give that presentation a 1. The only reason it even gets a one is for at least announcing the PS4 release date, if it wasn’t for that I would’ve given it a 0. They might as well have just shown me an hour of Wonderbook 2 or some other crap I don’t care about.

Woo I got in the Elder Scrolls Online Beta!

Oh joy, while I was handling some paper work for school and donating blood(yes, had a “busy” day) I got an email on the train ride home saying I’m invited to the ESO beta this weekend! Well, looks like I know what I’ll be doing 🙂 Only problem is that the email doesn’t have a beta key or a way to download the launcher. I sent in a ticket, hopefully I can get that solved before the beta starts. I’m really interested to see how the game plays out. I’m hoping when the game does come out its a a one time pay like Guild Wars 2. I have literally zero intentions of paying full price for a game then 10-15 a month after that. Why anyone would willingly do that is beyond my understanding. Plus f2p always, ALWAYS end up being pay to win eventually. Sure, a game with a one time payment + cash shop might also do that but I have more faith in that pricing model that F2P. So while I wait on that reply from them I’ll go back to Persona 4 Golden, beat that fucking bear that takes forever and a day to run out of HP.

ARGH MOTHER EFFING SHADOW TEDDIE!!

kuma

God dammit! 40 minutes of my life down the drain! I’m playing Persona 4 Golden having a blast till I get up to Shadow Teddie. He’s not hard, in fact he’s pretty easy(I’m level 39). The only problem is the damn thing has too much health and the fight drags on way too much. Just when I’m about to land the finishing blow he lands a critical on the main character and strikes him again killing him in the process. I just turned off the game at that point. Damn man, that shit takes too much time. It wouldn’t be a problem if it wasn’t game over as soon as the main character dies, I hate when games do that. Like I don’t have 3 other squad mates who can’t bring me back, hell, Yukkiko has a spell to bring allies back to life. It’s not like the character is dead once they’re out of HP like in Dragon Quest, cause right after a fight any KO’d allies have 1 HP right after the battle. ._. I’m going to go watch TV or something, I’ll just beat him tomorrow.
