Episode 15 90% complete but here’s something while you wait…

Good morning fellow gamers. I know I’ve been a little quite lately but that’s because I’ve been working on episode 15 but not just that I also worked on a few videos on why you should like Final Fantasy XIII. Well here’s my videos I am going to showcase the whole game and provide some insights and comedy (the best I can in this department) into why you should like Final Fantasy XIII.

Here’s the playlist:

Here’s episode one:

Playstation Experience Keynote! (That I was interested in…)

Whats up my fellow gamers!!! For those who did watch the Keynote this afternoon we sure got to see some interesting demos and trailers, but which ones got your attention? The one ones that I was excited to hear or scratch my head where the following:

  1. Uncharted 4 has dialog options that you get to choose which got me thinking will there be consequences to the choice you make which results in different endings? Pretty much just like what Mass Effect has if you play all three games in order. Oooh If you played Uncharted 1 through 3 on the PS4 will that effect anything in Uncharted 4? Who knows but you see the possibilities.
  2. Final Fantasy 7 remake on the PS4 looks so extraordinary!!!! The combat system looks similar to Final Fantasy 15 and Kingdom Hearts which some people (LIKE ME!!!!!) would like to try, and there are others who may not like this type of changes. All in all can we agree that from what we saw I’m liking the direction the game is going.
  3. King of Fighters 14 looks okay but would of liked some actual gameplay but 50 characters. I’m wondering if Heavy D will be in the game or Mr.Karate or Saiki. (Please put in Saiki)
  4. Street Fighters 5 new character F.A.N.G he seems to have a sort of ducking ability like Dudley has in Ultra Street Fighter and his normal’s seem to have really good priority like Sakura or Rolento. I’m curious to try him but I still want to play Laura.
  5. Playstation VR. It’s like I said VR is amazing when you try it but its hard to showcase or explain. I mean the demo really undersold what they were trying to show, but I would of liked to of heard how much Playstation VR would be or a release date. Also will it include a game or games and will it include a playstation move controller? Can the old Playstation move controllers work for the VR? These are things I’m curious about.
  6. Ratchet and Clank…. so I never played this game before but after watching the trailer for the game based off the movie, based off the original game (which I’m going to see if I can find for Playstation 2) I’m adding this to my buy for Playstation 4 list and compared the original with this new version.
  7. Eagle Flight looks nice, but what’s the purpose of the game? Do you need the Playstation Move controller? Like what will you be doing as an eagle? Because I think you’ll be hunting, and collecting for nest, and maybe fighting other eagles.
  8. 100 ft Robot Golf looks like fun. Seems like that could be interesting and bust out when you’re having a party and your friends need something to do.
  9. Paragon looks cool but again I’m curious to know what you’ll be doing?, what the purpose?, is this a multiplayer only game? Look I like what I saw just need more info.
  10. The Vita isn’t dead (thank goodness) because I just bought a Vita and seems like their are some great games that Sony is promising, so really glad to of heard “and Vita” throughout the keynote.

That’s pretty much it, but there is one thing I’m upset about and that’s no news on changing your names on the Playstation Network. I mean I really would like to change my name to something new, but the conference kind of started strong and then started to getting a little boring. I mean I ended up being on my Vita like 50 minutes into the keynote, but I got pretty far in Freedom Wars. All in all going into 2016 seems to be the time in which you should get a Playstation 4.

The Game Awards was surprisingly enjoyable

So I figure I talk about all the enjoyable or shocking news as soon as The Game Awards ended.

  1. Shaq Fu has returned!!!!!!! but it doesn’t look like it’s a fighting game but it still looks epic none the less. Shaq Fu: The Legend Reborn is coming out for PS4, Xbox One, Wii U, PC, and oh less I forget Ps3 and 360 (for those who haven’t upgraded there systems like me yet)
  2. Why Kojima couldn’t come to the game awards. I mean really Konami what the F@%k. Now I really want to know what happen behind close doors because this is looking like a really ugly break up.
  3. Far Cry Primal looks surprisingly enjoyable. I think I’m going to research this game but right now it’s going on my list of games I’ll buy when I get a Playstation 4. (Oh buy the way I have a list of games I want to buy when I get a Playstation 4 or Vita)
  4. Batman as a TellTale game…. so is this going to be another prequel into how Bruce Wayne becomes Batman or will this be like an episode of Batman? Will it take place after Arkham Knight? Will the choices I make affect the stories out come? I’m curious to know more about this game.
  5. Quantum Break… adding it to the list!!!
  6. Greg Miller!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Congrats on winning Trending Gamer (One of the main reasons I watched tonight)
  7. Splatoon winning best multiplayer. Wow! Didn’t see that coming at all. Seriously damn that’s impressive, so Splatoon 2 on the Nintendo NX?
  8. Best Fighting gaming going to Mortal Kombat X. Yeah if they didn’t win after seeing an Alien Baraka hybrid and a fusion between robot Smoke, Cyrax, and Sektor then I don’t I get the industry because Mortal Kombat X winning was definitely Automatic Super Sonic.
  9. The Witcher 3 winning Game of the Year! This was more a shock to me that Splatoon winning best multiplayer. I really need to play The Witcher 3, so that means you’re on the list.

That’s pretty much it from tonight. I think the award show was pretty decent and I enjoyed watching, but now back to work.
