So I was recently asked (today) if I have ever thought about starting a VLOG. The thought had crossed my mind of and on so I decided why not. I recorded some profound thoughts while I was running some errands today, took them home and edited them into a VLOG. Starting out I will be using an iphone 6 to do the recording an windows movie maker to do the editing. Only the best for my audience. If your board check it out the video. Eventually I will be doing videos on motorcycles, guns, video games, who knows. I am shooting them and I have no idea. I hope you enjoy and as always Game On!
As I tuned into the world reveal for Call of Duty WWII I couldn’t help but be excited and also apprehensive. The past few titles from the Call of Duty series had put me to the point that I wanted to swear off the series entirely. I was completely captivated by the opening video that I had to shake my head at the end to bring myself back to reality. This game looks amazing. I could have been watching a trailer for band of brothers from the way the captured the action and brotherhood. There was some good info so I’ll keep my rant short, they used the words boots on the ground and visceral some many times that I thought Google and Wikipedia were paying them per use. It made them sound like the were sent to talk about a game that they have only just heard about before walking out on stage, instead of having worked on it for three years. I’ll push on.
On November 3rd of this year you will be able to play the campaign which is centered, for the most part, around private Red Daniels. You will be battling your way through the European theater during 1944-1945 pushing your way through to Germany. There were a few details released for the multiplayer, though the go to response was there will be more info at E3. There is a new mode called War. War has the allied forces battling the axis powers for critical points. This sounds to me to be a whole lot like conquest from Battlefield 1, just without the vehicles. There is also a new feature that they are calling divisions. This will allow players to “enlist” in the “units” of their choice. Sounds like the clans you would find in other games including GTA and go figure COD. The other new feature that was barely introduced was Headquarters. Headquarters is a social area where the community can gather to have fun. Sorry that’s it, that is all that was said about the mode, then they should a 15 sec clip that had no info. From that 15 sec I would tell you to picture the tower in Destiny. People watching from home kept tweeting in to ask about the co-op mode and if it was going to be zombies. The answer was that it is an entirely different story mode that is a horror (and of course stay tuned to E3 for more info) that involved the 3rd Reich’s desperate attempt to create a new army, and then they flashed the following image on the screen.
So apparently the answer is yes and on top of that they have stolen the entire concept behind another series of games Zombie Army Trilogy. Very original. I got to say I was disappointed not in the game but in the reveal, there was hardly any info released an a lot of them talking about how awesome they are for going out to locations to record real sounds and images to make this game, congrats. at this point in the history of video games it is expected for the developer to put work into their game. Make a game that is based on Mars and then I will be interested in how you were on location. To sum up The game looks amazing and the team behind it has a limited vocabulary. Hopefully we can glean some more info from E3. Until then I will be looking into getting into the private Beta happening later this year and as always.. Game On!
According to recently leaked posters for Destiny 2, the game will release September 8. I’ll try to keep updating as I learn more info.
The last one is my favorite.
With the news that Nintendo has dicountinued the NES classic still ringing in our ears, rumors have it that development of an SNES Classic have started. Some have stated that Nintendo discontinued the NES because of poor planning. That because it they didn’t plan well they kept selling out and that this hurt Nintendo. Right. Nintendo lost money selling a device where the software was developed in 1983. All the games were already programmed. The put 1983 software on 2016 hardware and plastic injected a new case. (A raspberry pi can run this by the way.) When an item doesn’t sell it has to be stored somewhere, this costs money. Now all they have to do is wait a year or two and re release it for Christmas and they will sell out again. Poor Nintendo, we should start a collection so they can stay in business. I digress. Rumors have it that the SNES Classic will be out in time for Christmas. The list of games for this console has yet to be released. I’ll release more info as it comes.
Activision has confirmed that the next Call of Duty will be based in WWII. More information will be available April 26th during the live reveal stream from London.
