Thunderstorms and Heart Failure

It was a dark and stormy night.

Well, not when I had gone to bed – although it was dark. But there was that day that we had this insane thunderstorm pop up at like 5 am. It lit up the entire house like a Roman Candle. I had gone to get a drink, but there was no light in the kitchen. Or anywhere else in the house, for that matter. Until the lightning struck again. Then the house was briefly illuminated with an electric blue hue until it went black as quickly as it was lit.  Continue reading “Thunderstorms and Heart Failure”

Mass Effect: Andromeda Whining

mass-effect-andromeda8

I’ve started playing Mass Effect: Andromeda on my PlayStation 4. I haven’t delved very deeply into the game yet, but I have one thing to gripe about that I haven’t seen anywhere else (I haven’t exactly scoured the ‘net for this info, either) –

For a game that takes place on a current generation console in an era of great science and technological marvels that we can only dream of, I am deeply disappointed that you can’t pause the game unless your character is doing absolutely nothing.

Color me unimpressed at this lack of forethought.

Horizon Zero Dawn: First Impression (mild early story spoilers)

1h

I know I’m a bit late with this, but bear with me; I haven’t had a ton of time to write lately (I still have other posts to get up and out of the way and I’m also working on voice overs for a Fallout 4 mod) but I wanted to at least shout out Horizon Zero Dawn – the game that has had a monopoly on my spare time.

Horizon Zero Dawn – at a first glance – seems like a generic game with lush landscapes and a rugged female lead. While playing it, it has common ground with games like Tomb Raider (the reboot, at least) and Uncharted. Don’t let similarities fool you – this title stands on its own and shines for miles.

Resident Evil 7: Not A Hero DLC Leaked Info

Datamine, returning character, new enemies, and more.

re7

While perusing the internet looking for anything new about the upcoming RE7 DLC content, I found a lot of theories – and quite a bit of information. While some of it is most likely speculation, there is also a lot of information that can go either way. Everything from here on out is strictly labeled as a SPOILER so don’t read on if you don’t wish to be spoiled. Continue reading “Resident Evil 7: Not A Hero DLC Leaked Info”

Resident Evil 7: New Modes (January 31 Release)

re7-screen

We’re just a few short hours away from the first DLC release, and according to Capcom Unity, we have three new modes to check out in Banned Footage #1.

  • Bedroom: Figure out how to escape from a locked room – but don’t let Marguerite Baker know you’ve been out of bed.
  • Nightmare: Fend off waves of enemies and survive until morning.
  • Extra Mode – Ethan Must DieA tough-as-nails mode separate from the tapes and story of the main game. (Does not support PSVR)

Coming to PS4 on February 14 (from Capcom, with love), there is another release, Banned Footage #2, also with two more VHS scenarios.

  • 21: Gamble life and limb in a deadly game run by Lucas Baker.
  • Daughters: See what the Baker family was like before the tragic events of Resident Evil 7 Biohazard.
  • Extra Mode – Jack’s 55th Birthday: Race against the clock and feed Jack tons of food in this comical extra game mode separate from the tapes and story of the main game. (Does not support PSVR)

Both releases will be a Playstation 4 exclusive until February 21st, when it will then be available on other platforms.

*As soon as the DLC is released, there will be an update with more detail on the first set of modes.

Shitty Attitudes in Gaming

The internet is a great thing. Glorious, really. It’s an information super highway that allows us to connect with anyone – and in some cases, anything. For the sake of this article and not getting too distracted with running on tangents – we’ll just focus on gaming. Naturally.

While shitty attitudes towards games have always existed – and some for good reason – there’s another sect of gamers that I’ve noticed that have become prominent. And annoying. They seem to go hand-in-hand with another type of gamer.

So today, I join among their ranks as I complain about the complainers that also need to remind us how much they hate it every time we mention a specific game. So do yourself a favor and read on, as it’s time for my shitty opinion.
