  1. Finally got Fallout IV. I like it

      A shame about companion AI though...

    3. Kezins

      Kezins

      Lol. I find myself turning around in battle often to send my companion to flank the enemy just to see my companion has run off somewhere.

    4. Kezins

      Kezins

      Still an improvement from New Vegas where my companion permanently vanished. I find the settlement part of the game quite enjoyable yet tedious. I think it's a cool addition to make all the junk you collect useful.

  2. Fallout IV reviews seem to be grading the game lower than my anticipation expected. Lol. Might have to wait until bugs get worked out and the game goes on sale ...

      What were you expecting 10/10s across the board? It has mostly 9/10s and higher...

    2. Kezins

      Kezins

      Not 10/10s but I was hoping this would be a step forward. From everything I hear it's still on par with F3. Still going to play it but all these years later I was kind of hoping for some advancement. Lol.

      Nope its amazing, get it.

  3. Rumors were right. The Surface Pro 3 is amazing!

      Oh yeah, that is the one that I was thinking when you made that comment. Not the surface pro ^^ I personally think it is too expensive for the amount of storage you get ^^

    3. gaiages

      gaiages

      Do you think the Surface Pro 3 would be a good replacement for a laptop? I'll be looking into a replacement come spring and I want something light and with a good battery... so tablets like this could work too if they handle most basic computer stuff (like Office, mainly)

      I got my sister a Surface book :D

  4. I can't find the Share button when I use my PS3. Kinda sirprising, but I'm addicted to the Share button gaming on the PS4.

    1. Venom

      Venom

      On PS3 you have to click the middle analog stick. :P

       

      But yeah, it is pretty great having a button to save cool screenshots and videos. There's so many times something funny happens in a game and I want to take a video, but can't since it already happened. Not with PS4. :D

  5. Finally tried Lords of the Fallen. Most reviewers knocked it for being a Souls knockoff but it really is not like Souls games at all. What killed it for me was the crazy framerate and wonky movement. Had they cleaned that up, it may have been an awesome game. The funky movement distracts me too much to keep playing. The combat was more like Darksiders than Souls if you ask me...just sloppier.

      Venom

      Yeah, I tried two different classes and just couldn't get a feel for the combat. It didn't help that the only way I beat the first boss was hitting, running, hitting, running, etc. so it was really mind-numbing since he had so much health. Since most enemies were just damage sponges who almost never flinched it got annoying before it got fun.

      There are a lot of parallels to the DS franchise style of gameplay. I finished this game once I picked up an Xbox One, but just reaffirmed that I completely dislike games that use terrible "one shot" or "two shot" mechanics under the guise of being "difficult." LoTF was not difficult, but there were two bosses that were just dumb fights. The second boss (the shield boss) being one of them.

    4. Kezins

      Kezins

      I only got through two bosses before calling it quits. The battles were boring. Lol

  6. I'm going to be forced to edit my list of the 10 greatest films ever which I haven't changed this Century yet but Insterstellar is now my favorite film ever made.

      A Clockwork Orange. I need to find my notebooks where I keep stuff and do a movie blog post. lol

      Ah, I have Intersteller on my Vudu account but haven't watched it yet. I don't know what to expect from it but I know people like it.

    4. Kezins

      Kezins

      I'd suggest watching it when you are wide awake. It's a movie you have to pay attention to for 3 hours.

  7. I feel really dumb buying Elder Scrolls Online. I might keep playing just to feel like I got my $40 oit of it but the game is horrible so far. Lol

      I got beta access, downloaded the installer, and then proceeded to never do anything after that. xD I've seen the PC version cheap but even then I can't bring myself to bother trying it. I like my aimless wandering in Bethesda games to not be accompanied by other people getting in my way, unless they're NPCs, because they can't help it, the poor dears.

    3. John Kidman

      John Kidman

      I am actually enjoying it quite a bit.

    4. Kezins

      Kezins

      I guss it just seems like a generc MMO with an Elder Scrolls skin on it. The qualty from Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim is definitely not there.

  8. Kinda interesting Apple and other places are banningConfederate themed games but not a peep about The Walking Dead Season 2 which is full of Confederate nostalgia. I personally think the flag is garbage but I'm against trying to censor history. You can't teach future generations about things if we bury everything.

      They need to ban all uses of the Nazi flag. eBay too. The Nazi flag is still legitimately being used for pure hatred, period. No debate about that one can even be entertained.

       

      These companies need to grow backbones. Stand up for what's right or do nothing at all, but none of this middle-of-the-road pandering until people "forget" about it.

    4. Kezins

      Kezins

      If I ran the companies, neither flag would be sold.

  9. My bold prediction: Mad Max (PS4) ends up bucking the trend of movie based games sucking and is actually a million times better than the film.

    1. Jared

      Jared

      It is going head to head against the Phantom Pain. While the game might end up being nice, it's sales are going to suffer.

  10. Haven't been on much but that should change soon. I've been doing extra work around the house preparing for the baby which saps my time. I expect some late nights once he arrives so I'll likely be gaming more with less sleep. Lol. We decided on the name Sterling Aurelius. Looking at this happening any day in the next two weeks so still have last minute house work. Lol

      Geez man that's enough kids to work with! Being a parent is gonna be tougher than ever! xD

  11. The Witcher 3 is basically the poor man's Skyrim. Lol. After playing a few hours, my list of complaints is huge but it's still worth playing.

      Kezins

      Yeah. It let me start playing at 1am. Lol

    3. barrel

      barrel

      I would more so compare it to Dragon Age: Inquisition... in which case I think Witcher 3 is way better (Also, I don't like Skyrim much, so I personally think the only thing Skyrim does better is scale and quantity...not quality imo.).

    4. Kezins

      Kezins

      I do like this better than DA: Inquisition.

  12. Ended up getting some PSN credit so I bought Bloodborne. Shame us the game is unplayable. I even deleted everything and redownloaded the game. At character setup, it doesn't allow me to enter a name and therefore can't start the game. I heard a few people have the same issue. :(

    1. TKtheknight

      TKtheknight

      Dang. Hope things get better soon. Seems like there's always bad luck with you and Sony for some reason lol.

    2. Kezins

      Kezins

      Lol. I got it working. Weird fix. When I unplugged my USB thumb drive, it worked.

  13. Starting to get happy I cancelled my Bloodborne preorder. From what I hear from friends the framerate changing constantly, it has 45 second load times and bad camera angles. I'm sure I'll get it when it is $20 but it doesn't sound like the 9/10-10/10 most reviewers are giving it so far. :)

      Not a lot at the moment. Lol

      Yeah because every other PS4 game has a constant frame rate >_>

  14. Finally got a portal to The Vault in Diablo 3. I am instantly very wealthy now. Lol

    1. Kezins

      Kezins

      7 legendary items and over 150 million in gold. Not bad for 15 minutes of work. Lol

    2. Sailor Liztress
  15. 4 of the 5 PS4 games I want haven't even been announced yet. Lol.

    1. barrel

      barrel

      I'm guessing the one that has been announced is Disgaea 5? Otherwise... I dunno (hopefully it's not Suikoden VI, otherwise I have some news for you....).

       

    2. Kezins

      Kezins

      Good guess lol.

       

    3. Kezins

      Kezins

      I wasn't thinking about Suikoden which I would want too but I doubt we'll ever see it unless the fanchise is sold :(

  16. Haven't been too active lately. The Liztress made me a multimillionaire so I've been busy shopping. :)

      I enabled cookies everyday. Then realized nobody comes to my cookie party so I ate them by myself.

       

      Well that was terrible lol. Only Venom makes good jokes/puns.

    3. Sailor Liztress

      Sailor Liztress

      Is there cookies on the PS4?

    4. Kezins

      Kezins

      I can do Torment IV easy in bounties but will get demolished in rifts. Have to crank down difficulty for that.

  17. Played the second episode of Game of Thrones last night in one sitting.I enjoyed it while it lasted. Lol

    1. TKtheknight

      TKtheknight

      Same! I did it a while back when I went home for the weekend. I'm curious to know what your choices were. Prob make another blog like you did with Walking Dead. Always fun to compare choices.

    2. Kezins

      Kezins

      It looks like the choices in this episode were the same for 90% of people.

  18. I can say withput a doubt this was the best PlayStation Plus month even with weak Vita offerings. Lol

    1. barrel

      barrel

      Rogue Legacy ain't bad.

  19. Sony always says slow PSN connections are caused by your own network configurations. Funny since every device I own now gets 90-105Mbps and I still get 6-12Mbps on PSN lol.

    1. TKtheknight

      TKtheknight

      I know! I find it funny my 360 downloads after than PS3 at home. Thought PS4 would be faster than PS3.

    2. Kezins

      Kezins

      The PS4 is a lot faster actually. Lol. I'm pretty sure Sony's server must be janky because my connection anywhere else is really fast. Lol

  20. Joystiq layoffs have started. It'll be to get new jobs in a saturated market too.

    1. Kezins

      Kezins

      Tough to not just to

    2. Jason Clement

      Jason Clement

      Most of the staff will have no trouble getting a job, I bet. Whether or not that's with another popular outlet, I dunno, but they definitely have enough contacts to get hired with a game company doing PR or such.

  21. I'm guessing Dying Light is awful considering even the big games sites aren't getting review copies until tomorrow. Always a bad sign when review copies are sent out once the game is already on shelves....

      Have you guys not seen the trailer? O__o The game looks flipping amazing.

    3. gaiages

      gaiages

      Rex, I also saw the first trailer for Dead Island. Trailers can be extremely misleading.

       

      But yeah, I heard there were some problems this time around, as opposed to the Sonic Boom problem of them just not wanting to ship the game out to reviewers.

    4. Kezins

      Kezins

      Jim Sterling's review gave it a 5/10 score but his words make it sou d more like a 7 or 8. From what I've seen so far, it might be worth playing.

  22. Became official yesterday. We're adding a boy to the family sometime around June 5. Potential future GP member. Lol.

      I played about an hour. It feels dated but never looked better. Lol. The modern controls male the game a lot easier in ways if you aren't a purist. No more going the wrong direction by accident like the old days.

    3. TKtheknight

      TKtheknight

      Awesome! I've actually never beaten the original and played some of it at friends house. Missed out on it and glad to see it return in HD. Looking forward to playing it. Hopefully it's worth the price.

    4. Kezins

      Kezins

      I think $20 was a fair price. Thiswasn't simply an upscale job. It lookslike they redid some things.

  24. If you guys plan to try PlayStation Now, I'd suggest bumping up your internet plan to 50mbps for a flawless experience. At my 30mbps plan, it had some issues. My speed got bumped up today and playing games through the service is closer to playing games natively than before.

    1. Rex705

      Rex705

      I have 780mbps so I'm fine.

    2. Kezins

      Lol. I'm jealous

    3. TKtheknight

      TKtheknight

      I plan on trying this before the semester ends. This might be my last semester living in the dorms and school internet is super fast compared to home lol.

  25. PlayStation Now performs really well. Using my 7 day trial. I was hoping screenshot amd video functions wpuld work but doesn't look like it.

    1. Venom

      Venom

      I was wondering about the screenshots. Oh well. Glad it runs well, anyway. :D

    2. Steve Bitto

      Steve Bitto

      I had only heard people talking on the Playstation Blogcast about how well PS Now ran so I took it with a grain of salt. Glad to hear it's smooth.

    3. Kezins

      Kezins

      Yeah it's not bad. I'm not really excited about it I guess because I've played a little of every game on the list in the past. Lol. I may get sucked in one day when the library grows. They may need to integrate it into PSPlus somehow. It seemsto me like they may work against each other.
