My Sexy Titan

speaking of gaming, was one for awhile last night and played with my buddy ron for awhile… was just thinking about it, and i think it might be the first time we played online together… which is kinda weird, after talking about gaming all these years… good shit, though! :)

think my titan’s come along way in the last week or two… though like i said, the grind in this game is foo’real… not sure how many damn hours i’ve sunk into it already, though i after talking to jayden and google’n around, seems like i could’ve saved myself quite a few hours if i’d gone about it differently… oh well, whatevs… it’s just a game. heh.

at least they have these weekly resets with new objectives and things to do, as well as these nightfall strikes — only did one, and it was a bitch to complete… took jayden and me a good 4-5 hours of doing it over and over until we finally completed the damn thing.

hard? yeah.. but a good feeling when you finish the fucker.

PS. anybody else playing Destiny 2 on PS4?

Commodore 64 Mini!!!

Commodore 64 Mini Console Announced

Classic home computer the Commodore 64 is staging a comeback – this time as a fully-licensed “mini” version.

Clocking in at 50% the size of the original Commodore 64, the C64 Mini is a smaller recreation of the much-loved 1982 console, updated for modern audiences with high-definition output via HDMI, a bundled joystick and two USB ports for keyboards or additional joysticks.

The mini-console also provides some extra bang for your buck with the addition of 64 Commodore classics; Uridium, Paradroid, Monty Mole and Hawkeye are all there along with a pretty wide-ranging selection of other favourites. You can see the whole list on the C64 Mini website.

oh man, not sure how the hell i missed this one..! and seriously, talk about nostalgia and bringing back memories… the commodore 64 was the first gaming / computer that my dad got when i was a kid… before the first nintendo ever came out.. the first game i ever played was ping-pong on the C64, and believe me — i spent many, many hours playing that in front of a bigass CRT tv it was plugged into…

oh man, oh man…

SNES Classic Review

SNES Classic Edition review: Worth it for the games alone

The success of last year’s NES Classic Edition clearly took Nintendo by surprise. The company was completely incapable of meeting demand, leaving many people unable to buy what became the must-have gift of the holiday season. Now Nintendo has given its SNES the Classic Edition treatment and promises it’s going to build way more than it did last year.

good review of this new little guy from nintendo… i haven’t even bothered to look for it online or anything, since i figure it’s probably sold out everywhere… so why even bother, right?

The Switch Is DOOM’d!

Doom on the Switch is real Doom … on the Switch

Perhaps the most surprising thing about Doom — a game defined by its speed and precision, not to mention its gleeful application of gore — running on the Switch is that it’s not surprising. It’s right there: Doom on the Switch. It’s the campaign, the enemy placements and behaviors, the arcade mode. While I didn’t play the multiplayer component, it will be available as a separate download for those who want it. It’s a modern, cutting-edge, game of the year-winning shooter and it’s running on a Nintendo handheld.

jayden was talking about this yesterday, saying that he’s been kinda undecided on the Switch up to this point, but after hearing that DOOM was coming to it… and that he could throw it in his backpack and play it (and a handfoo of other games) on the go — yeah, he now wants a Switch.

can’t blame him, because i’m pretty much the same way.

also, DOOM was probably the best damn FPS i’ve played in the past decade… lots of great games out there, especially over the past ten years, but hot damn if that game wasn’t awesome and just seemed to scratch that itch.

PS. kinda wanna go back and play it again now.

My Sexy Titan

been playing a lot of Destiny 2 of late, and went on my first “strike” with jayden last night… i was joking around about being a striking virgin, but i guess i popped that cherry.

the grinding for gear and weapons to raise your power level is definitely a thing in this game… kind of addicting, but can also be a bit aggravating… i mean, i’ve been stuck at around 265 or so for the past two days and i’m not sure what i’m supposed to be doing to get past this hump.

it’s just cool to hop online and play some games with jayden… i mean, anime is great and all, but it’s definitely more fun to run around and blow shit up together.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Meanwhile, In Destiny…

Meanwhile, In Destiny 1…

The video game industrial complex wants you to play Destiny 2 right now, but spare a moment for the first Destiny. It’s on its way to becoming a ghost town.

Destiny 2 Clan Beats Raid In Six Hours, A World First

Destiny 2’s first raid, Leviathan, went live at 10am pacific today. Immediately, hardcore clans got to work. Hours later, a team of players cracked it.

Raids, as many of you know, are tough dungeons with elaborate puzzles and challenges. You can only take them on if you’re at a high enough Power, and even then, you still have to figure out how to progress through the area. Raids are the toughest PvE attractions that Destiny 2 has to offer.

i’ve been playing a little bit of Destiny 2 here and there, but nothing like some of these kids and twitch streamers… but then again, i’m more of a casual gamer that likes to pickup the controller and play a few matches, or just run around and blow shit up… saw something this morning where a group of 6 guys played the new Destiny 2 raid that came out yesterday, and it took them 14 hours to complete.

yeah, 14 fucking hours.

when i hear stuff like that, the whole idea of hunkering down and playing through one of these raids just doesn’t seem all that appealing to me… a couple hours? yeah sure, maybe… but 14 straight hours? ummmm, yeah… fuck that.

PS. grinding for gear in destiny can be a downright chore.

Let’s Rock ‘n Roll Titan

after pondering on this most important of questions long and hard, i decided to go ahead and roll with a Titan in Destiny 2.

yeah, i know this is some heavy shit and super interesting to… well, everybody… but i just felt the need to share that awesome little nugget of info.

not sure why i was expecting to jump right into the game at exactly midnight last night… i stayed up with a practical countdown going on, got all comfy and settled in to play… and was stuck on the intro screen “loading” forever — guess i wasn’t the only one either, at least if twitter is anything to go by… but it’s all good, i finally got in and ended up playing until around 4am or so.

so yeah, i’m fucking beat and dragging ass right now.

Destiny 2, Tonight!

Destiny 2 – Official Live Action Trailer – New Legends Will Rise

if you’re into it, then i’m sure you’re all over this and probably waiting to download or get your copy in the mail… i went ahead and pre-ordered a digital copy, so guess i’ll hop online later tonight and download it — unless it automatically does that in the background for me, which would be cool.

question i’m wondering about is should i go with the Hunder, Warlock, or Titan?

hmmmm… i know, heavy shit to think about.

What is Destiny 2?

Destiny 2 – Official “What is Destiny 2?” Trailer

from what i gather, if you pre-ordered Destiny 2 on the PC then you can download and start playing the beta — same one we played on consoles a couple weeks back — starting today… if i had a PC gaming rig, then i’d probably check it out since it’s open to everybody tomorrow… and really the only reason would be to see it in all it’s sexy uncapped FPS/4K glory.

of course, that’s assuming i had the video card/monitor that could push and take advantage of it… jayden said something about looking into getting a new 1080ti video card, and i looked it up and was like “gdamn dude.”

i think i’ll stick to the PS4.

Xbox One X, Why Bother?

I Bought An Xbox One X, But I’m Not Sure Why Anyone Else Would

One question I get asked a lot is “If you weren’t reviewing video games for a living, would you still buy [X thing]?”

Most of the time, the answer is yes. Granted, while I don’t know what my schedule or income would be working some other job, most of the games I buy, the consoles I purchase, I would still be buying even if I wasn’t doing this for a living because well, I love video games. But after just shelling out $500 plus tax and delivery for an Xbox One X pre-order, this is one of the first times when I genuinely don’t think this is something I would have bought myself.

As Eurogamer noted in a great piece this weekend, Microsoft has not done a good job selling the Xbox One X from the start, and didn’t do so in what will probably be its final high profile sales pitch at Gamescom. With very few recent, exclusive games that can only be played on Xbox generally, the Xbox One X’s main selling point is that it will play multiplatform third party games better than everyone else as “the most powerful console ever made.”

I will say what Microsoft has done with the Xbox One X’s tech is impressive, extracting power from places no one’s even thought of before to really put a ton of horsepower into a home console. But that’s put the system in a weird position where even if $500 might actually be a logical, even great price for the capabilities of the system, it’s…still a $500 console in a market where its closest competition, PS4 Pro, is $100 less than that, and most consoles, including Microsoft’s own Xbox One S, are half the price instead.

Continue…

i totally agree with what this guy is saying… the gaming geek in me totally loves what MS did with this new xbox, from the tech specs and just what they’ve managed to do with the console really is pretty damn impressive… but damn, it really is a tough sell, and i’m not sure what exactly they’re doing here… if there were some awesome games that took advantage of it — 4K + HDR @ 60fps — they i’d probably be all over it, since that would be worth selling my XB1 and getting the new sexy… but as it is, there’s just not anything to justify it outside of maybe the new Forza game… and it’s just not worth dropping $500 for Forza, sorry.

if they come out with some new kickass games that take advantage of it, then maybe it’ll be worth it later on… just have to wait and see.

for now, i’m gonna take a pass and wait.

Crackdown 3 Delayed

Crackdown 3 delayed to 2018

Microsoft is delaying the release of Crackdown 3 from Nov. 7, 2017 to spring 2018, the company confirmed to Polygon today.

Shannon Loftis, Microsoft Studios Publishing general manager, said the company is delaying the Xbox One and Windows PC game to give development teams Reagent Games, Sumo Digital and Cloudgine extra time to ensure a quality experience.

“We’re very excited about Crackdown 3, and so are many fans, and so it’s a difficult call to move the release date,” Loftis said in an email interview with Polygon. “However, we want to make sure to deliver the right game, with the right quality, and at the right time. Crackdown 3 is a hugely ambitious game and we want to ensure we deliver the right experiences all the way through every part of the game, whether that’s campaign, co-op multiplayer or our competitive multiplayer mode, Wrecking Zone. Getting the balance right between the three modes is important, and we are going to take the extra development time to ensure that. Gamers can expect Crackdown 3 in Spring of 2018.”

Crackdown 3 was originally announced at E3 2014 and was, at one point, targeting a release in the second half of 2016. It’s clearly a complex project, one that has evolved since its unveiling, and Crackdown fans have learned to be patient waiting for it to come out.

you remember that stupid scene at the very end of Revenge of the Sith with Vader taking his very first baby steps and going, “Nooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!“?

well, that’s how i felt just now after reading this.

seriously man, i’m about to give up on this game.

Fresh New Xbox UI

Xbox One is getting a completely new customizable interface

Microsoft just updated its suite of products for online gamers a month ago, adding a few quality-of-life features to Xbox Live and its streaming service Mixer (previously Beam). But today, they’ve announced an even bigger overhaul, revamping the user interfaces Xbox One and Windows 10 users.

The Home screen has been restructured, adding suggestions for new friends (and maybe an ad or two), but the big change is the new hot bar at the bottom. The first button sends users straight to their game library, but the next few are recently-played games or apps — a nice addition, if available elsewhere, that keeps you from having to dig around for your last-loaded title.

Microsoft also added a feature Xbox One fans have long desired: The freedom to customize their Home screens. Users can manually add games, and the system will automatically drop in related content like developer news releases or show when your friends start playing that title. The Guide’s a bit quicker and its smoother layout aims to make navigation easier, letting players switch between layered tabs with bumpers, the left joystick or the d-pad.

The Community page has also gotten a facelift, with new functionality that lets users peek into Activity Feed moments or comments and make them full-screen. There’s new filters for the feed itself, too. These updates are only coming to the first ring of Xbox’s Insider program for now before expanding slowly into wider groups of players as a sort of beta test, but a wider release is expected in the coming months.

i was pretty stoked, if not a little surprised, to hear that the Xbox was getting another UI refresh… feels like they just rolled out an updated one not to long ago, though to be honest, i’m not really a huge fan… still feels a bit cluttered, with too many clicks to get into stuff that you wanna get to, etc…. but hey, i’m always down for some new sexy UI, so bring it on xbox!

Spotify makes its long-awaited debut on Xbox One

PS. about damn time…

SNES Classic Pre-Orders In Late August

Nintendo will offer SNES Classic pre-orders in the U.S. in late August

Nintendo’s next hot retro console, the SNES Classic, is going to be available for pre-order late in August at a number of retailers, the company confirmed today. It’s good news for people left wondering when the console pre-orders would arrive – including the many disappointed fans who thought they’d secured one from Walmart last week only to have their order canceled.

The SNES Classic Edition, in case you’ve been living in a cave for the past month or so, is a tiny version of the original Super Nintendo Entertainment System, complete with controllers that match the original. The console ships with 21 games included, including the unreleased Star Fox 2, and will retail for $79 when it’s available on September 29.

oh man, i really hope they have more supplies this time around because i’m still a bit bitterballs over all the bullshit i went through trying to get my hands on a Classic NES the last time around.

i’m not doing that again.

Destiny 2 Beta

Destiny 2 Beta Is Now Open To Everyone On PS4, Xbox One

i remember reading the other day that there was a new ‘Destiny 2 Beta’ going on, but couldn’t find it on the PS Store… turns out those that pre-ordered the game got a code, which would give them a couple days early access to the beta… and since i’ve been kinda on the fence about it, i didn’t preorder it — oh well.

anywho, there’s an open beta all weekend so guess we can all download and check it out if we’re curious about this new Destiny game ;)

Switch + Phone = Chat?

The Switch’s Phone-Enabled Voice Chat Is As Ridiculous As Expected

The Nintendo Switch online app is live for Android and Apple devices. It offers some Splatoon 2 utilities that let players to keep track of their stats or buy special in-game items, which is pretty neat. It’s just not a very elegant solution for online voice chat between friends.

In order to communicate with friends over voice in Splatoon 2 (and only friends, as is Nintendo’s way), each friend will need to have the Nintendo Online app downloaded and running on their phone or tablet. Players will need a communication headset of some sort plugged into their phone. If they want to hear game sounds and chat, they’ll either need a one-sided headset, or a splitter like the one that comes with Hori’s adorable licensed headset.

One of the players in your group must then go into Splatoon 2‘s multiplayer section and create a private room via the Online Lounge section, sending out invitations to each friend they want to chat with. Invitations can also be sent through the app directly Once an invitation is accepted, friend icons show up on a screen in the mobile app.

i really never even thought of voice chat, since it seems like such a given with playing video games online… but damn, talk about a pretty convoluted and complicated way to go about it.

Destiny 2: New Sentinel Titan Subclass

Destiny 2: Creating the Sentinel Titan Subclass

when i first heard that the new Titan in Destiny 2 would have a Captain American type shield, i thought it was kinda lame… until i watched this video.

if i pick-up Destiny 2, and i’m seriously thinking about it even though i felt kinda burned when the first Destiny came out… i might have to go with this new Titan class, because that looks pretty badass.

PS. Destiny 2 beta starts up next week.

The standalone mini console will feature 21 games, including Super Mario World, Earthbound, Super Mario Kart, and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. But the most surprising inclusion is Star Fox 2, the unreleased sequel to the original Star Fox for SNES.

The Super NES Classic Edition will launch on September 29th for $79.99. Like its predecessor the NES Classic, it will allow players to easily play retro games on high-definition televisions, thanks to an HDMI connection.

oh fuck yeah..!!!!!!!! here’s the list of games:

  • Donkey Kong Country
  • EarthBound
  • Final Fantasy III
  • F-ZERO
  • Kirby Super Star
  • Kirby’s Dream Course
  • The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

  • Yoshi’s Island

i never did get around to getting one of those NES Classic’s… i tried, believe me i tried… but kinda gave up after standing in line outside of a walmart/target/bestbuy after 5 or 6 times — usually at the buttcrack of dawn too, no less.

hopefully i’ll be able to pre-order one of these SNES Classic’s this time around, though.

PS. Sega classic games released on iOS/Android
