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.

PlayStation 4 Stardew Valley

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , on December 3, 2016 by getbent57

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 Review

Mad_Max_Game.jpgHave made may posts taking about the video game Mad Max.  Have now finished the game and all the side missions.  So think it is time for a review.  Like this game a lot.  Even after I did everything (minus going for a few trophies) I wanted to keep playing.  However the game does have problems.  Some of the elements can be repetitive.  All so combat can be a pain in the begin.  It gets better the more you upgrade.  All that can be said about most games.   There are not very many story missions.  They make up for that will all the side stuff.   Which like I said all ready can be repetitive.  But if you switch they up.  Instead of doing all of one before moving onto the next.  It makes if more fun.

Had a blast playing this game.  Like it so much thinking about starting over again.  My favourite thing to do was to take over the small enemies bases.  Driving the car is very fun as well.  Once you gets some of the better upgrades and can take on the convoys.  It’s very enjoyable.   The game is well worth the money.  Even if you wait for it to drop in price.  It is a must buy.

Mad Max

Mad_Max_Game.jpgHave been playing the game Mad Max for little over a month now.  All most finished.  What I have been doing is all the side stuff first.  The most is broken into five big sections.  Which then broken into smaller sections.  I have been doing missions and collecting section by sections.  That way I can get more of the upgrades faster.  Have had Max, maxed out for a while now.  Been working on trying to get all the parts and upgrades for the car.  Most of these you have to do main and side missions to unlock.  Have enjoyed my time with this game.  For a game being set desert wasteland there is a lot to look.  A lot of the elements can be repetitive.   However there are many different tasks which helps.  Not ready for a full review.  Want to finish the game first.

Mad_Max_Game.jpgOnce again taking about the video game Mad Max.  Not sure how many hours I have play (wish there was a stat tracker for that).  But it is a bunch for sure.  Loved every minute it of it.  Said this in my last post taking about the game.  For being set in a desert wasteland there is a lot to look at and things to do.  The upgrading of Max and the car is very fun as well.  Everything you do in the game gives you something in return.  My favourite thing to do is take over the enemies bases.  They all may have similar elements but each are unique.   The money used in the game is call scrap.  Have discovered.  If you are out in a big storm (which happens time to time).  A message comes up on the screen saying seek shelter.  Being out in a storm can kill you.  However there are big scrap drops during the storm.  When the storm did come.  High tailed it back to the main base.   Waited on the for a bit then seen three new icons appear on the mini map.  So head back out to see what they were.  Turn out they were big boxes, each with 100 scrap in them.  That is a lot compared to the regular ones you find.  Not sure if I will ever be able to finish the game because the map is huge.  However will have fun trying.  Well worth the money.

Mad_Max_Game.jpgHave decided to buy myself a copy of Mad Max.  After watching some game play videos.  Then after  watching Mad Max: Fury Road.  Which is super awesome by the way.  I had to play this game.  It come out on September 1, 2015 the same say as another huge game, Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain.  Which all so looks good but not a real fan of those games.  Plus the price they wanted is way to high.  They wanted $75.00 plus tax.  It’s bad enough games for this gen hardware are $70.00.   Why should we have to pay more even if it’s only five dollars more.

Back on track.  Mad Max is a blast to play so far.  For being set in a desert wasteland there is a lot to look at and things to do.  There are lots of things to collect.  All of which can be used to upgrade your car/yourself or the main bases.  Driving the car is very fun.  Which is a good thing since you will be doing a lot of that.  My favourite thing to do so far is to take over the small enemies bases.  Once you do it becomes friendly and every so often give you more scrap (the in game money).  The combat is not bad.  Have just finished play Batman: Arkham Knight before playing this game.  The combat in both games has a similar base.  Mad Max is no ware as good.  However is still fun.  Enjoying the game. Well worth the money.

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

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 25, 2014 by getbent57

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.

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.
