Last Day of the Year

Ugh, the year went soooo fast.  Haven't been updating lately since haven't really had the time (mostly gaming).  I have a buttload of games I need to catch up on.  Probably will never get through all of them in my lifetime.  Been playing a bunch of Battlefield 4 and NBA 2K14 (when working) on the PS4.  I would post videos but streaming with the PS4 kinda blows (it won't archive).  I hooked up my Xbox One to my old recording setup so here's almost 45 minutes of me playing Dead Rising 3 (which is surprisingly VERY fun).



Have a happy new year!!  See you next year!

TOO MANY GAMES!!!

So PS4 is among us so is Xbox One.  Nintendo just released Super Mario 3D World and Zelda for the 3DS.  Also Elder Scrolls Online beta this weekend.  WHY IS EVERYTHING ALL AT THE SAME TIME!!

In other news.  I just upgraded my PS4 HDD with a 1TB SHDD.  After all those games (6 games total) I had about 150-160gb of space left.  I've been doing streams directly from my PS4 (awesome feature).  I'll try and post more videos here.  I love the 15 minute DVR function.  I get to catch funky bugs like these.

Playstation 4!!!

Got it, with 6 games (Amazon + Target B2G1 free bought with rewards/coupons).  Out of the 6 only have 5 in hand (Need For Speed is backordered from Amazon).  I have COD Ghosts, Killzone, BF4, AC 4, and NBA 2K14.

Some quick impressions:

  • The UI is FASTER!  Much faster than PS3.  And its pretty slick.  
  • There's actually party chat!!  
  • I like the whole "What's New" thing, kinda like a twitter/facebook feed
  • I love the broadcasting and share stuff
  • The controller is more comfortable, not sure about the touchpad on it though
  • The web browser on this thing is actually good (I like the Wii U one better)
  • Hate that you can't upload videos directly to YouTube
  • The included headset is HORRIBLE LOL
  • Finally PSN PROBLEMS LOL!  Can't really be avoided though, same thing happened with Wii U and will probably with Xbox One.
Here's true next gen for you... wish this went up on Youtube instead of my facebook :/

Oh and a pic I took from AC4...

PS4 Launch Week!

Just got back from vacation a few days ago (from the Philippines - just missed the typhoon by 24 hrs).  Can't wait till Friday!  I'll maybe post something when I do get it (videos or what not).  Here's a trip back to the Sony E3 conference.

NYC ComiCon 2013

More crowded than last year.  Didn't take as many pictures though.  Oh well.  Maybe next year (hoping I can go to SDCC again).


Before entering... CROWDED

GTA Online = Broken

So, yea... My character was originally a guy hated how he looked like and created a 2nd guy.  Next time I log on my 1st guy is a girl with all stats to zero... hmm..

See picture online... a dood!

TURNED FEMALE!  LOOK AT THEM STATS!

GTA: Online FINALLY

GTA Online FINALLY WORKS on the 360.  Looks to be good times ahead.  Here's me teaming with my 2 bros.

Final Fantasy XIV!

The game is great so far!  If you love the Final Fantasy series, you'll love this.  Even more if you like MMORPG or are just tired of WoW.  Some things I like:

- FATES - basically random world events
- Duty Finder - YES!  SWTOR would've been a hundred times better if it had this from the start
- One character = ALL YOUR ALTS - because you can switch classes anytime
- Runs good on my old laptop!
- I like the crafting system
- Graphics are nice!
- Jobs!!

Some things I hate:
- WTF WORLD IS FULL (hopefully this won't be happening next week)
- Still instanced separated areas instead of one FULL world
- Stupid quirks - like unable to talk to NPCs while mounted, the inventory system is a mess, pets are stupid and doesn't control well, and there are others...

Here's a short vid from a livestream.

Pikmin 3

FINALLY A WII U GAME!!  FINALLY!  Great game so far.  I've only played Pikmin 2 and I don't think I ever finished it.  I tried playing with just the gamepad and it feels impossible to control properly.  Good thing I have a Wii Motion+ remote.  I'll be streaming on and off so feel free to watch (if I remember to turn on my stream).  I've uploaded my first Pikmin stream to Youtube, which you can view below.

August looks to be an expensive month :(
Oh and more videos coming soon!

Resident Evil 6 - Leon (partial playthrough)

Playing some co-op with my bro.  I'll be streaming here and there, and I've put a copy of the stream on youtube.  Need to skip past 12 minutes because I was idle (lol at my cable TV going out).  Also there's a lot of stuttering in the beginning until I switched the video over to windows mode.  Apparently xsplit hates full screen RE6.

Mid-July Update!

Yikes!  Too many games so I haven't been updating.  So not much really happening.  I found out my ISP gave me a free Internet speed bump.  Woke up one morning and noticed my speeds going beyond what it usually should be.



Apparently its all free!  So expect some more streaming from me at higher quality.  Well I'll be back to update some more soon!

June!



OMG June already!!!  The two big games of June for me are Animal Crossing (3DS) and Last of Us (PS3).  There are other games this month, but I am not sure I'll be picking them up.  We'll see.  Otherwise its a pretty good month of game releases.  Definitely picking Project X Zone (3DS) and more than likely Company of Heroes 2 (PC).  Remember Me (PC), Deadpool (360 or PS3), Game & Wario (Wii U) I am not too sure about.

Also this month is E3.  Let the console wars re-ignite.  Hopefully the Xbox One E3 event isn't as LOL as their previous conference.  Watercooler indeed.

Xbox One!


That's it in a nutshell.  Curious what they show in E3, but as it stands it looks like I'll be picking up the PS4 first.  And I hate the size of the Xbox One (people are already calling it the XBone).  Why is it so damn huge.  The controller looks good at least (that d-pad).  They also showed next-gen COD:  Ghost, except it looks like old gen.  Battlefield 3 looks better I think.  The used game issue doesn't apply to me since I don't really buy/trade for used games.  E3 should be good and its in 3 weeks!

May!

Already soon!  Not much in the month of May for me (thank GOD!).  Thankfully still chugging along in Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.  Still stuck at HR2 though.
Interested (not sure if I will purchase):

  • Far Cry 3 - Blood Dragon
  • Metro Last Light
  • Resident Evil: Revelation (Wii U)
  • Donkey Kong Country 3D (90% chance I'll purchase this)
Thats it!  Nice small list which mostly 75% chance I won't buy any.

April!

April doesn't look too bad.  I am interested in a few games, but not sure i'll actually pick them up.  Games that interest me this month are Soul Hackers (3DS), Injustice, Dead Island Riptide, Star Trek, and Soul Sacrifice (definite buy and finally something for the Vita after P4G lol).

So according to game time, I've already put in 60 something hours in MH3 Ultimate.  LOL!  Gotta hunt them all!  Did some multiplayer last night and now I wanna jump in some more...  Here's a video of one of the recent hunts!  You can find more at my Youtube site.

Oh Nintendo

Too many games at the same time!!!  I am still on the wall if I should get Lego City or not.  I picked up both Monster Hunter 3 Ultimates on both Wii U and 3DS.  I've been playing the game non-stop.  Need to do more huntings!!!  I can't wait till the April update to this game so I can just play it on the gamepad alone.  You can watch my Twitch TV stream.  I'll try and stream something, but you can see how bad I am at this game.


Also just picked up Luigi's Mansion 2 Dark Moon!  Haven't started it yet.  Still have to finish Fire Emblem!  Though I am almost done with it, I keep getting sidetracked by all these side missions and downloadable missions.  I'll never finish that game.  Well off to hunt more moonsters!

March!

March is going to be bad for the wallet.  I didn't realize how many games I want that's coming out in March. And most are coming out the same day...  Sucks!  Here's my wanted list (I think its like almost every game coming out in March):

  • Castlevania:  LOS Mirror of Fate (3DS) - 3/5
  • Naruto Shup:  Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 - 3/5
  • SimCity - 3/5
  • Tomb Raider - 3/5
  • God of War: Ascension - 3/12
  • Starcraft 2 - Heart of the Swarm - 3/12
  • Lego City - 3/18
  • Gears of Wars:  Judgement - 3/19
  • Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (Wii U + 3DS) - 3/19
  • Luigi's Mansion - 3/24
  • Bioshock Infinite - 3/26

PS4 Meeting Summarized


Playstation 4!!

So far looking pretty good on what they revealed.  They made a lot of good promises, especially the Gaikai stuff (streaming) and the social/sharing functions (the video uploading thing is cool).  The specs are also damn good (8gb GDDR5 wow yummy).  I really hope it all comes through together, because Sony did the same thing before with Vita and look how that's turning out.  Hopefully we don't have to shell out over $600+ for this thing when its released.  Here's the stream if you missed it:

Boss Battle - Deadspace 3

Me and my bro beat it in coop over the weekend.  Pretty good game, though I still love DS2 more.  The coop play wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.  I did a bunch of streaming over Twitch.tv if your interested (the early streams stutter because stupid me forgot to change a setting).  Here's the final boss fight (oh btw SPOILERS!)


Oh and for giggles here's a weird cutscene bug we ran into...

Aliens: Colonial Marines

I was on the fence on picking this up (either through Greenman Gaming or the eventual Wii U release), but it looks like I'll be skipping this (for now anyways).  Just look at this (or this!).


I mean c'mon wtf!  This just poops on the whole "scare" factor of aliens.  Apparently this is not a bug according to websites and is part of the game.  LOL!!!  Oh and check out this review that's making its round around the internet.... More LOL.

Feb 2013!

Haven't updated in awhile.  Going through a BIG career change going from a financial/business career (ie corporate world) to a smaller office, technology world (YES!).  I don't officially make the switch till March, but am taking care of last minute things in the old office (YAY!)

Been playing a bunch of Ni No Kuni.  Haven't played too much of Dead Space 3.  Waiting on the timing that me and my brother get to coop.  Oh I finally beat Diablo 3 Inferno.
