What A Deal!

So, there is this game I have been wanting to try, but usually I am not a fan of the price…. plus there are additional figures you can buy, and it can all become complex….

Disney Infinity guys. What I am talking about is Disney Infinity.

Then, while walking in Walmart (I know, I know, bleh on that place, but stay with me here) we came to the electronic clearance section.

Let me mention, they have the normal starter pack for 2.0 for like $39.99. And that was the PS3 version.

Then my husband found this beauty:

This is like the SUPER edition! It has the starter pack PLUS two additional figures and four additional power disks. See?

Just in case you want more pictures (you have no idea how excited I was…)

Okay… nerdy kid out, because I have some building to do!

What to play next…

9156436-completed-stamp-stock-photo-complete

I did it! (And already posted about it…) I completed the first Assassin’s Creed! Another game off my list!

I am still working on Uncharted, but apparently I am not in the top shape for shooting cursed monks/vampire/werewolf looking things while fighting off bad guys.

Trust me, I tried. It was just bad. Like, I was getting KILLED.

So, I was like “Time to try something else then,…” and I did. I was looking through my MANY games, and you know what I want to play?

pokemon

You know, one of the FEW games I don’t have. Nor have the handheld consul for. I just –

FOR REAL? That’s what I really want to play. Or something LIKE IT. WHY.

dilemma_yield_sign

Of all the things…

Any recommendations? While I try to surf through all of my games and seriously wonder why I just don’t want to play what I have???

I could start Assassin’s Creed 2….

But then again, I want something mindless.

Weird, I know.

Altair and Uncharted – The Struggle

First off – I haven’t been on much. I know. Okay, I HAVE been on, but I haven’t been WRITING.

Big difference, I know.

First, let me say I have been ill. Secondly, I have been making progress on TWO games:

Assassin's Creed

Uncharted

Seriously. The bottom one y’all know I am doing my YouTube videos for. The top one is when I need to take a break and just get some consistency and less *gasp* and heart jumping.

Can I say something about this guy:

altair

HE DOES NOT LISTEN! I have had so many struggles just YELLING at him! “Don’t go that way!” “No you idiot! I said CLIMB that.” “Don’t DO THAT! I just-” “Run you idiot RUN!” “ARE YOU KIDDING!” “You were supposed to jump on that-that-”

My favorite one so far:

“You’re supposed to be one of the BEST ASSASSINS and you can’t even DEAL WITH WATER??”

Just seriously. I have had so many moments where I am just RAWR at him and my husband comes out of his gaming room to see what in the world I am doing. Frustration I tell you! I never realized how much of a “Guy” Altair is! He just doesn’t listen! Doesn’t follow directions!

(In case you can’t tell, there was  little joke. No, I’m not hating. Just… it was funny when I thought it. C’mon, have some humor. I am a female Asian and I make driving jokes all the time.)

Just seriously.

But I truly think I am getting close to the end! I have Lucy telling me all about the Pieces of Eden, and I have been reading emails, and that coded message Lucy got – We will be there soon – and just… something is GOING DOWN. I am very excited. I cannot wait! Gwah! I have heard what the ending is many times. But some of it is starting to make sense and it is just-

I am excited. What can I say. I have been recording my playing so far, and what I will probably do with it (Because most don’t like seeing gameplay from the original Assassin’s Creed because it is too repeatitive) is a “Last time on Assassin’s Creed…” and then lead to Assassin’s Creed 2.

Speaking of videos:

Yeah, I posted another one. Hence the whole “Uncharted” part of this section. Now, gameplay wise, I am a little farther in the game. (Probably a lot farther.) But I had to work with adding my voice and such to that.

(I have a new mic that has MUCH better recording quality and I love it and I… don’t think talking about it fits much here.)

But this game… I really need to keep playing it so I don’t forget how to handle it. But I also realize that I need to have more then one game series going on, and I was hoping for Assassin’s Creed to be the other series going on. I just… I have to get past the first batch.

Drake may not listen to me as much as I would like him to, but at least it is better than Altair!

The struggle is real people! And it causes me to die! In game of course.

I will try to keep updating in regards to gaming and my first time experiences with these older games. Behind the times, but catching up! Loving this!

Did you experience as much frustration as much as I did when playing these games? I would love to know I’m not alone.

Uncharted Series: Part 3

Yes, I am actually continuing this. *laughs* I just… life got complicated an busy. But I am good now! So I can continue! I have part three today and I am hoping to have the next few parts worked out over the weekend so I can post on a most steady basis.

We’ll see.

Sorry that the sound quality isn’t the greatest in this one… and I am showing something I would have normally edited out:

Vine problems.

But I am getting ahead of my self. Hopefully this isn’t too bad!

 

Another Game For My List!

I swear: when we went into GameStop today, I had no intentions of buying a game. My husband wanted to cancel his Battlefront Preorder that we never picked up, and somehow I came out with:

Red Dead Redemption. Even better, Game of the Year edition!

Another one of those “Man I remember wanting to play that,” and it just slipped by….

Well no more! Adding it to my list! Whoo! Progress!

All while I wait for my video to export so I can upload to YouTube. Not bad.

Also saw a good deal on Saints Row IV: Commander-in-Chief edition. Didn’t get it but kind of wish I did. (Not going to do a Gat Out of hell though. That bothers me somewhat.)

Now to actually have time to play these lovely games…..

Game Award Winners 2015!!

labor-day

In case you are lame like me and MISSED the GAME AWARDS last night (What in the WORLD was I doing?? I have to go back and watch it) here are the winners from last night! (and maybe some of my commentary):

GAME OF THE YEAR:

witcher3_en_wallpaper_the_witcher_3_wild_hunt_wallpaper_11_1920x1080_1425909788

Haven’t played this yet, but I keep hearing such amazing things about it. My husband started it and said it was fantastic, but he too didn’t get too far: we were far to distracted. We may have to give this game another shot! (I was planning on doing so anyway… but now it might be on my “must buy” list.)

DEVELOPER OF THE YEAR:

cdpr-default

Guess what game they developed? Look at the previous category. Yup, them. Makes sense, does it not?

BEST INDEPENDENT GAME:

rocketleague

I didn’t realize this was an Independent Game! This game is phenominal and so much fun! Seriously addicting. And had us yelling and playing and cheering… Fantastic.

BEST MOBILE/HANDHELD GAME:

lcgo_screenshots_005

Wait… huh? I did not see that coming. I fully expected FallOut Shelter. I haven’t even heard of this one. Interesting. Congrats to them though!

BEST NARRATIVE STORY:

her-story-review

Did…. I haven’t played this one. Nor have I heard of it. I looked up the description, and not going to lie, it does sound interesting. I – oh! It’s only for computer? Well, that makes sense. But I may have to try this one. I am all about the story… I thought … well any of the others would have been good too! And they were fantastic! So consider my interest perked! Now how to get it for my computer….

BEST SCORE/SOUNDTRACK:

metal-gear-solid-v-the-phantom-pain

Nice. I will have to look it up and listen.

BEST PERFORMANCE:

viva-seifert3

The lady from My Story!
WHOA. It must have been SPECTACULAR, because she beat out Lara Croft, Geralt, AND Joker! Holy cow!

GAMES FOR IMPACT:

lifeisstrange

Another one I have been dying to try out! (Note to self: Add Until Dawn and Life is Strange to Game list.) I heard this was amazing.

BEST SHOOTER:

si_wiiu_splatoon

…. Did NOT see that one coming! O.O

BEST ACTION/ADVENTURE:

metal-gear-solid-v-the-phantom-pain

I was never really interested in this series (I know, I am the worst). And somehow I’m still not. I am just a bad gamer. Once I finish my current list, I’ll probably give it a shot and be shown how wrong I am for not wanting to right now, but who knows. But this does give me something to think about.

BEST ROLEPLAYING GAME:

witcher3_en_wallpaper_the_witcher_3_wild_hunt_wallpaper_11_1920x1080_1425909788

Again… I need to play this sometime.

BEST FIGHTING GAME:

mortal-kombat

Does not surprise me one bit….

BEST FAMILY GAME:

super-mario-maker

As much as I LOVE Mario… this was the one game I hadn’t really looked into that involved him. And I love Nintendo games. I was actually rooting for Disney Infinity. But I have heard a lot of people thoroughly enjoyed this game. This may be for someday, but not the today for me. But glad to know it was good!

BEST SPORTS/RACING GAME:

rocketleague

Did NOT see that coming! With as much as people LOVE FIFA, I was expecting it to win! But Whoo Rocket League!

BEST MULTIPLAYER GAME:

si_wiiu_splatoon

I need to see what this game is about apparently.

BEST ART DIRECTION:

maxresdefault

What? I… I haven’t heard of this on either… Anyone want to tell me about it?

 

FAN CHOICES!

ESPORTS GAME OF THE YEAR:

csgo

I wouldn’t know this one. Sorry guys. I thought it would be COD or League of Legends.

BEST FAN CREATION (Wait.. huh?)

maxresdefault1

Haven’t heard about this… I am so out of the loop apparently.

TRENDING GAMER:

greg_miller-1

….. I need to do some research.

ESPORTS TEAM OF THE YEAR:

3guocmf

I honestly don’t know what they mean by the who ESports thing. I will work on figuring it out.

ESPORTS PLAYER OF THE YEAR:

maxresdefault2

MOST ANTICIPATED GAME:

no-mans-sky

Now this one makes perfect sense! I have been hearing about this one from my husband for quite a while, and I KNOW there are a lot of people looking forward to this!

So…

congrats

To all of the winners! That is fantastic! Whoo! I am definitely looking forward to some of these, and we all know how much work goes into these amazing games that we enjoy!

So You’re Telling Me…(Rise of the Tomb Raider)

I was upset for a bit. Why? Well, I really want to play the Tomb Raider Series (still need to finish the one on PS4 because… well…. last entry…) and got super excited when I heard about Rise of the Tomb Raider.

Until I found out it was an “xBox exclusive.”

Why the quotations? Because that isn’t really the case.
Now, some may think I am being foolish, but hear me out:

It’s just a limited time exclusive!

Seriously. It WILL be coming to PC and PS4!

rise_of_the_tomb_raider

So there is hope for me! Not that I would let it being an xBox thing stop me from playing it. No, no, no. My husband has an xBox One. I have an account. I would still play it. But NOW, I don’t have to use his xBox one and get used to that controller! (Seriously, it kind of hurts my hands. Odd, I know.)

I just have to wait longer. A LOT longer. It is supposed to be coming out for PC (Windows) early 2016 (so…. maybe in the next few months) while PS4 has to wait until late 2016.

Crap. I have to wait?

No, this is fine. This is fine for me. Because I have so many games to play until then anyway! But still… This is such a relief to me!

Here is an article about “‘Rise of the Tomb Raider’ Team Didn’t Intend Exclusivity Confusion”

Here is an article talking about how it will come out for PS4 probably about “Holiday 2016”.

I have to wait. Til next Holiday. I just want to own it and see it in my collection. It can call my name as I finish other games. Just like the current Tomb Raider calls my name. Just….

Thank goodness I have other games to distract me. Otherwise, I may not be so calm.

And for giggles, this should have a link to the video shown on the IGN site.

It may seem like I am the last to know this… but I have had a few people tell me I am wrong when talking to them. So here is my proof! Viola!
