Halo 3 Multiplayer

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , on February 23, 2022 by getbent57

Halo_3Took a trip done video game memory lane this past weekend.  A bunch of us played some Halo 3 multiplayer.  Think the last time I played that was around 2008/09.  Must say the game holds up well.  Sure it doesn’t have some of the features of modern FPS but there is lots of fun to be had.  We had and Xbox One and a Xbox 360 hooked together over and ethernet cable.  It worked great.  We played a bunch of classic slayer rounds.  Some of the maps I remembered and other not so much.  Thinking we will be giving it another try at the next game night.

Spintires_MudRunnerFor a few years now would seen clips and pictures of a PC game with this very realistic look mud.  The game is called Spintires.  A while back read there will be a version for consoles called Spintires: MudRunner. (There is a new version out.  Just found out, Spintires: MudRunner American Wilds)  Have seen copies in stores for a while.  They wanted to much money for it so never bothered.  All so there is no demo on the PlayStation 4.  Well a few days back.  Got to try it out.  A friend as it on his Xbox One though game pass.  While the game is not prefect.  The user interface is very odd.  The gameplay is fun and challenging.  Still no sure if I will buy a copy.  If I can find it real cheap I might.

FarCry4.jpgOne of my must buy games coming out this year is Far Cry 4.  As you may know am a huge fan of Far Cry 3.  It was one of the very few games were I got 100% complete.  Last week was GamesCon, it is like E3 but over in Europe.  There was lots of game video that come out of that show.  Over at the have a ten minute video showing off three different parts of the game.  There is on spoilers (as I know of).  After watching it has a lot of the same features of part three that makes the game so great.  The new things they show off as well look pretty cool.  The game will be out November 18, 2014.  The only downside it Assassin’s Creed: Unity comes out a few week before this one.  Which I will be getting day one as well.  You can see that gameplay video > here or below.

BatmanArkhamKnight.jpgHave more pre E3 goodness to share.  Back on May 21, 2014.  The people from Rocksteady Studios have put out the first gameplay trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight.  Have to say it looks pretty awesome.  If this is true gameplay this game will look better than a lot of movies out there.  They are saying the city will be five times the size it was in Arkham City.  This is because you will get to drive the Batmobile.  Which all so looks awesome.  This game is one of the main reasons I will be buying a PS4 soon.  The game is not out until October.  But am sure there will be lots of info from this years E3.  You can check out the trailer > here or below.  It is called Evening The Odds.

Next Gen Consoles

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 11, 2013 by getbent57

PlayStation4The big E3 press conferences took place yesterday, June 10, 2013.  So we now know what Xbox One will cost and what the PlayStation 4 looks like as well as the price.  The Xbox One will cost $500 on sale in November 2013.  The PlayStation 4 will be $400 on sale this “holiday season”.   So my guess in November some time as well.  Just in time for black Friday in the states.  That $100 differences I think will make a lot of people think twice before for buy an Xbox.  Then there is the the whole DRM thing Xbox has going on.  When you buy a game it is stored on the hard drive.  The XBox one must be connected to the internet for the game to work.  After that the Xbox must connect to the internet every 24 hours to verify that that your games are only on that one systems.  These has a lot of people up in arms.  It makes selling you games harder.  All so lending you games to a friend will be a pain as well.  On the other hand Sony says they will be doing none of that.  They even poked a bit of fun at Microsoft in this little video > here.   One thing that will be different for PlayStation this gen is you will have to have a PlayStation Plus to play online (could be wrong about that).    Over all it very interesting E3 so far and it is only getting started.  Then there are the games.  The ones they showed of at all the press conferences look amazing.  Check out all the gaming websites the week and you will see all kinds of awesome stuff.  Oh, all most forgot has put together a nice video explaining the two big consoles what we know so far.  You can check it out > here.   They do a much better job than I do explaining things.
