My Time At Portia

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , , , on January 23, 2019 by getbent57

My_Time_At_PortiaHere is an up coming game I have to get, My Time At Portia.  Well it is all ready out on PC though Steam.  Watched a live stream Gamespot.com did on it.  It had me wanting to play it right way.  The game is a mix of many different things.  There is a bit of Minecraft, Harvest Moon, Dragon Quest builders and the like.  It is an action RPG with craft, fishing, farming, exploring, fighting and adventure.  From what I read it will be out some time in the spring on consoles.  Will be buying this for sure.  There is a demo for it on Steam.  Might give it a try.  Check out the launch trailer > here or below.

Stardew Valley

Stardew_Valley.jpgHave been eyeballing Stardew Valley every since it came out on consoles this past December (2016).  Have watched some game play video.  It looks like a game I would like to play.  Think I am going to buy it.  Was going to wait for a sale.  The thing is the game is new so don’t think there will be on sale any time soon.  Do believe in the Canadian PlayStation Store it’s going for $20.

PlayStation 4 Stardew Valley

Stardew_ValleyBack in March (2016) watched some videos GameSpot did about the game Stardew Valley.  This is a farming simulation RPG.  It might sound pretty dull.  However if you watch one of the videos they did > here you might change your mind.  This game was made just by one person.  Which I think is pretty amazing.  This has been on PC via Steam since March.  There has been rumours that it would be come to PS4 and Xbox One.  Well that turned out to be true.  On November 29, 2016 it was announced it will be on the PS4 December 13th then on the 14th for Xbox One.  Not sure how much it will cost yet.  Do know the PC version is $17.00 Canadian.  So my best guess will be around $20.00 for the consoles.  Hoping there is a demo.

Mad Max – Now Playing

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 28, 2015 by getbent57

Mad_Max_Game.jpgHave been on the fence about buying Mad Max (the game) the past few weeks.  That is because the last few trailers were just ok.  I like the idea of the game. Looks like some I would enjoy playing.  The last trailer I seen > here didn’t make it look fun.  However all that has changed because GameSpot.com did a Now Playing live stream.  Didn’t watch it live.  But that doesn’t matter because you can still watch it on their site or YouTube.  That is what I did.  After seen real world game play the game looks super fun.  You can check it out > here or below for yourself.  Has all the elements I like.  A big open world, with a big map, with all kinds of things on it to do.  There is upgrading the car and Max.  Lots of things to collect.  The combat looks a lot like the Arkham games.  Which is fine by be because it is a good system.  Guess I am on the buying side of the fence again.  The game will be out September 1, 2015.  The movie Mad Max: Fury Road is on video that day as well.  It will a good day for Mad Max fans.

Destiny Beta

DestinyYesterday (July 24, 2014) spent part of my day watching Now Playing on GameSpot.com.  They have a two part video were three people playing the Destiny Beta.  Part one > here (or below).  Part two > here (or below).  Wanted to watch these because have been interested in this game every since they show it off a few years ago.  After watching the videos the game looks really good and fun.  They were giving way codes to the beta when they lived streamed those videos.  The other way to get into the beta was to pre-order the game.  Not a fan of pre-ordering games.  Only did that once and it was a waste of money.

Before I went to bed that night.  Took a look at the GameSpot’s new section and there is an article > here saying the beta is now open to every one.   Provided you have PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold.  The beta is on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.  The beta is set to end Sunday night (July 27, 2014).  This is awesome news.  So before going to bed fired up my PS4, went to the PSN and started the download.   The file is about 10GB and then about 15GB when installed.  One of the great new features the PlayStation 4 has, is standby mode.  So you can download, change up the controllers stuff like that with out leaving it fully powered up.  So that is what I did.  let it download and install overnight.

Thought the game look really good in the videos but it’s even better in person.  The controls are nice an smooth.  The shooting is really fun. The RPG elements are pretty sweet as well.  About to reach level 4 as I am typing this post.  You can play the game by yourself but it is all so co-op.  Think you can team up with two other people (may be more).  Can’t wait to play some more.  The game will be out September 9, 2014.  Think I might just buy this game.  There are some may good games coming out this fall it will be hard to decided what to get first.

Gamespot-iconOne of my favourite game websites, Gamespot.com got a very big face lift.   I visit this site every day and over the years it has had some changes.  They are saying this is the biggest redesigns from the past 17 years.  Do like the new design but will take some time getting uses to.   It has a fresh look to it.  All most looks like a blog like.   Sure there will be a few bugs to work out.  With a site this big and with so many users it will take some time.  Go check them out.  Below is a video talking about the changes they have made over the past 17 years.

Twine

TwineYesterday I was reading this article over at Gamespot.com called Power to the People: The Text Adventures of Twine.  It is a very good read.  Talks about how a text adventure can be a game.  What got me the most is that any one can make one for free with the the program called Twine.   It is kind of like and web based choose your own adventure book.  Growing up we had a bunch of these book.   After watching the videos on how to use the program (you can see them here or below) it is a simple but very powerful program.  You are only limited by your imagination.  Going to give this a try.  Looks like it would be fun.   If it turns out ok or not will post it for sure.  If you want to see what a finished product looks like check out this link.  This is the one they use as an example in the GameSpot article.  Below are the videos on how to use the program.

GameSpot’s Assassin’s Creed III Travelogue

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , , , on September 24, 2012 by getbent57

I know I just got Borderlands 2, which is and awesome game, but I am so looking forward to getting Assassin’s Creed 3.  Game Spot put out a new video today (September 24, 2012) called Assassin’s Creed III Travelogue.  The video shows off the different environments you will interact with.   This video is better than other so far because it shows real game play.  And man this game is going to be so awesome.  Some highlights to watch for in the video are.  You can pet dogs that are in the streets.  At night when you are in the woods looks just about how it real woods look like at night.  Then there is the water when you get in the boat.

Now Playing: Dirt Showdown

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , , , on April 25, 2012 by getbent57

No, I am not the one who is “now playing” DiRT Showdown.  It is not out until the end of May.  But over at GameSpot.com every now and again the have a “Now Playing” video.  Were one or more people sit down and play and upcoming game.  The newest one as you might have guessed is about DiRT Showdown (Video below or click > here).  The guy that is taking is kind of funny.  As for the game itself it a only an early build but you can see that it looks pretty sweet.  The video is about 27 minutes long.  Didn’t watch the whole thing because I want to see the game for myself then it comes out.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Battlefield Bad Company 2 Beta

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 22, 2009 by getbent57

bad company 2 I got into the PS3 beta for Battlefield Bad Company 2GameSpot.com is giving 65,000 keys out.  Download it and installed.  When I went and tried to play it asked for a password.  Had know idea what it would be or how to get it.   I looked back on GameSpot’s website it said it was open to U.S. residents only.  I was like, “shit”.  Then I got thinking may be my Battlefield Heroes password would work, it did.

So far I have tried 1 and a half rounds.  From what I have tried the map is huge, there is a lot going on and it looks great.   Like most online fps games I play I die a lot and have know idea were I got shot from.  I did manage to get a total of 8 kills. LOL.  All so like most online game you can hear the people with head sets yelling and bitching.  That can be funny but most of the just plain annoying.
