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.
