The Walking Dead show 2

OK I told you guy this the Rick was right about going and killing all the people from Terminus but the people said you don't have to worry about them. You see what happen poor Bob's lost his leg!! I think the reason why Bob was crying was he got bitten by the walker at the food bank. I think after this the group would go after the hunter. Like in the comic books Rick  kills them all!
You also see that Rick  know that Tara Chambler used to be with the Governor 2 nd attack group that destroy the jail. Tyreece don't want Carol to tell them about Lizzie and  Mika. Remember Lizzie was a crazy kid she kill her sister and she was the one feeding the walker at the jail.Also Tara told Maggie that she was with the Governor group. Carl had also change a lot he when from someone that would just shoot someone to saving people like Gabriel Strokes. You see when all this walker stuff hit this good old guy locked the door to the church and there for people was kill.Did you see people try to get into the church from the thing Carl find!This was the show for people to get catch up. Rick decide to go to Washington DC! I was expecting more of a fight between Rick and Abraham. I think Carol want to leave the group,she was ready to leave until they saw the same car that took Beth. Any way I might do more whenever I feel like it
What will happen the next show Rick and com will have to deal with  Gareth and his people and I think Rick will win with him killing Gareth with a red handle machete!!!LOL I will have some pic later on I just wanted to get this done just after watching the show.

Crazy A's Talk: The Walking Dead No Sanctuary (spoilers)

         OK, the last episode had our group back together in a railroad car. I was kind of disappointed  when Rick had to say  "they screwing with the wrong people" what he wanted to say is "they fucking with the wrong people" they had to use the word screw because the FCC would have beeped them out .Its kind of like watching Breaking Bad when they were beeped out. Come on FCC take your head out of your ass for a minute and listen to kids they already know the fuck word. Come on the FCC don't have a problem with them raping, killing, or even ripping people's throats out. I think the FCC should be closed down and allow people and TV shows to say what the fuck they want too. All the kids already know every bad word..... PS I heard at comic con New York that the BlueRay DVD version of The Walking Dead season 4 had "They are fucking with the wrong people" I don't know if its true,if anyone got the Blue copy please tell us if this is true.
       I was expecting them to do away with the Terminus place and most of the people by the first show and I was right. These people were a group of cannibals. They had cannibals in the comic as well and Rick dealt with them and he wanted to deal with them on the TV show and he was right but the people around him was saying you don't need to go after them they must be dead. Rick was right from my viewpoint he and all of them should go and wipe them all out. By letting them live you are opening the group up for problem with the cannibals. And from the video clip it show them and Gareth talking. I'm so glad they didn't do a whole season of them in the railroad car LOL. They had been building up to Terminus for half of season4 ever since they lost the prison. So they had to make a big impact at the end when Carol blew up the gas tanks, and Than Rick sprang into action. Its also good to see the rest of Rick's group doing their own DIY weapons out of what they have to work with. The Terminus people messed with the wrong group.
       I don't think the terminus people knew who they were dealing with here. Rick took out people with a piece of wood. I just hope that Michonne gets her sword back. Gareth knew that Rick had a bag and he asked Rick what is in it and he said “A machete with a red handle. That’s what I’m going to use to kill you.”And Rick was all tied up than Carol blew up the gas tank and walkers started the trip into the Terminus compound. Carol and Mary got together and she tells her about what they went through and how it gave them the right to kill people - to eat people. AT first Terminus was a safe place but it was over run by bad guys. But does this give them the right to eat people . I say hell NO! After the group got free and met up with Carol she told them to come with her and Rick and Carl is reunited with his baby,the whole Grimes family is together... Now I think there will be a power struggle between Rick and Abraham who wants them to go to Washington DC  and I don't think that will be accepted by the whole group because they know that large cities are "CITIES OF THE DEAD"
         I see lots of things hung around to be resolved. Where do they go? I think that Rick noticed one of the girls was with the Governor. Carol is now a member of the group again,so much had changed since Rick told her to go and most of those changes was with Rick whom now gets it. I like Rick when he is this way: a warrior because in this world he has to be like everyone else.Tyreece also had to kill. That evil man who threatened to kill the baby.Also where is Beth? the video clip did show her in a place she don't like and she wants to leave.
        Now it is also good to see that Morgan got his act together and he was going to Terminus until he saw the sign Rick put there "No Sanctuary"I see Morgan becoming a major force with Rick. I don't know this I'm thinking up some things I would do.And also the thing that Eugene Porter plan to do: a virus within a virus to kill the dead,since its the virus that is keeping the brain working and another thing is we don't know if its a virus ,a germ, or fungi, bacteria, it could work! Or you could take a sample from a walker but we all know our body co operate with lots of bacteria,just look inside you're gastrointestinal tracts ,they break down the food and change it to energy ,so you would need to ID what made the body to get up and walk. We learn from the first season that it acts like bacterial meningitis and than once your body is dead it reawakens the brain but it stops where memory and thinking happens. I think I wrote this on another site I said something about using a virus to kill another virus  maybe on my facebook page,who  knows.

    The Terminus people are true evil.They are what is called institutional evil: Acts of evil often done among an organization, done with little or no sympathy and a lack of humanity due to its repeated process, like a system, or a daily job. Like the body on the metal table when they came close to killing Rick and others.The body was Gareth's brother,the guy whom Rick grabbed in season 4 and   shot someone at Terminus. Its just that in their mind set its nothing personal. Other ideas of this type of evil- ISIS they just kill anyone(men.women children) that isn't a member of their little church. The Nazis who kill anyone that wasn't a party of their little club.

Destiny Review

We at AlbertO'sVideoGamePlace are usually behind on reviews because we are slow at playing games. All those professional people get the games early and we don't. I'm happy to announce that we are on time for once! This review is being posting about the same time all the other people are posting their's. The servers weren't ready until the game released so the professional reviewers got to play on day one like everybody else. Enough with that(its just so exciting that were on time!) here is the review:

   Destiny reminds me of Uncharted 3 multiplayer. That is an odd comparison and a weird way to start a review but just hear me out. Both games are completely different; there are no similarities at all. Uncharted multiplayer is bad, but Alberto and myself love it. There are glitches, it takes forever to join a match, and you have to shoot people 5000 times. We love it because it is fun. It is fun to see people dancing in the middle of a firefight, people running in circles shooting at nothing, people blowing themselves up, and people that don't die because the rocket you shoot goes in between their legs. That's what games are supposed to be-fun. A great story elevates the game but it will be useless if it's not fun.  Destiny fits this perfectly because the game is a blast to play(definently with friends) but has many flaws.
   Destiny is a MMO with the action of a first person shooter. You are part of the guardians, a group of people that are supposed to fight back the darkness. This mysterious enemy came when humanity found the traveler, a huge sphere that granted us a golden age. A golden age not only on earth but in space as well. We were able to inhabit planets like Venus and Mars. The age of exploration soon ending when the darkness came. That's all a know about the story which is the worst part of the whole game. The story missions are fun but repetitive and don't leave a big impact in terms of story. This is very frustrating because Destiny's world is fitted for one great story. The game would get a very high score not only from us but other reviewers if Bungie spent more time developing the story and the the main missions. This is the main flaw of Destiny but the main point is having fun with friends and the game brings a plethora of ways to do just that.
  You get to travel to Earth, the moon, Venus, and Mars. On those planets you can do main missions, strikes, and patrols. Strikes are co-op only missions that have an extremely hard boss at the end. Patrol is basically like free roam. This is where you can find chests,do side mission, or just rack up on xp. The game is always online so you will always meet up with other players. You can also be part of a fireteam which is basically like your squad. Before you can do all this you have to pick a class. Either Titan, Hunter,or Warlock. Each one has their own set of abilities. You can upgrade these abilities when you get XP. The customization is great in Destiny. You can change your armor, guns, and powers in many different ways. There is even a sub class that unlocks whole new powers and abilities. There are many guns to choose from each one being unique in their own way. You can also visit the Tower. This is basically your hang out area. You can talk to other people,buy upgrades, and edit your vault. Destiny is about exploring planets, finding,upgrades, and shooting the Fallen all with a friend by your side. The gameplay is also spot on. The shooting is top notch as well as the melee, and powers. The best part about Destiny may be how fluent the combat is. The worst part about Destiny is it's story and the repetitiveness of it. If you are not obsessed with the plot then the lackadaisical story can easily be overcome. If you just run around with friends then the game will be a blast to play.
   Lastly Destiny offers competitive multiplayer. This is called the crucible which offers your average game modes. There is team deathmatch,  free-for-all, capture the points, and protect the relic. The stats you get in the story will correspond with the Crucible. That means people can use their powers in competitive multiplayer. This brings a crazy,but fun experience and that's just how we like it.  I just hate it when you run into one of those pesky Hunter who uses their ability to stab 20 people at once.
    If the campaign wasn't lacking this would get a 9.9. But at the end of the line video games are about having fun and Destiny delivers on that account. 8.7 out of 10

Telltale's The Walking Dead Season 2 Review

The first game won many awards because of its emotional tale of Clementine and Lee's journey. This second season is more about Clementine and no one else. That being said Clementine is a great character and her personality will change based on the way you play. Season 2 is not as good as season 1 and it's hard to pinpoint why. Maybe its because season 2 didn't bring anything new to the table. In fact it took away most of the gameplay elements. Now the whole game is character development and quick time events. Now it's just like reading one of those interactive books where you get to choose out of many options. I wanted more exploration,puzzles,and combat tied together with that character development. I want to kill the zombie the way I want! Many people may say that its not about the gameplay but the story.This is true but you must remember it's a video game not an interactive book. You don't even have a connection with any of the other characters except for a few. I only like Luke, Jane, and Kenny. So when people die (which happens a lot) it doesn't really hit you like it did last season. I have been negative so far but I still liked the game. I enjoyed playing through each episode but something is a little off that makes me lose that connection to the game. Now this is not true with the last episode. No Going Back was a great finale. The best part is that there is actually multiple endings. This makes it feel like your decisions really matter. Both the endings and Clementine as a character will be different for everybody. This last episode is so good that it makes the whole season ten times better. It really makes the player realize that season 2 is all about Clementine.

Telltale's The Waking Dead Season 2 gets a 7.5

Infamous First Light

Infamous Second Son's first standalone DLC gives an origin story for the neon wielding conduit:Fetch. It narrates the events leading up to Second Son and gives a deeper look into the troubled conduit. The story is told in flashback form as Fetch retails her journey to Augustine in Curdan Cay. Fetch is a much more likable character then Delsin, and her voice acting is spot on as Laura Bailey gives an emotional performance. You return to Seattle but only have one island to explore. Neon Clouds are all over the city which gives Fetch a speed boost when running through them. This makes traversal a little bit more exciting giving you small objectives while racing across the city. Some new powers include neon missles(my favorite), melee finishers, and a singularity that completely destroys anything. This singularity creates a "magnet" in the air that brings everything to it then explodes. All these new powers are awesome,but I was hoping for more. To upgrade these powers you most complete tasks around the city. Tasks that can be completed easily and don't add anything to the game. Come on Sucker Punch did you forget how to make a proper free roam game! You have to collect Lumens(blast Shards) around the city. These are placed in hard to reach places but it only takes seconds to figure out how to get them. There is neon painting which is exactly the same as spray painting in Second Son except the things you draw are not as cool.  You also have to find police camara drones. The best side activities are the races but they don't last very long. Most of the free roam stuff is just as dull as they are on Second Son. Sucker Punch needs to take a hint from the Arkham free roam. The story missions are pretty good but not anything special. The best thing is that they brought back riding on top of vehicles while you protect that vehicle. Those sections are really fun. There are also some arcade style sniper missions. The story is pretty emotional but predictable. The best part is actually the ending missions. I felt they were put together really well and were fun to play. Last but not least are the battle arenas. This is a very welcome addition to the Infamous universe. It is basically survival but it fits really well with Infamous. This is because the gameplay is so fun and easy. It also gives you something to do after you beat the game. If you still have Second Son you can play as Delsin. I just wish it could be online co-op or split-screen. Wouldn't it be great to have 2 people playing; one as Delsin and one as Fetch!

First Light is a pretty good DLC offering 4-5 hours of gameplay. Although it is plagued with the same thing that made Second Son have a lower score: a very bad free roam. You should get this if you are a Infamous fan because it is a good game but could have been so much more. First Light gets a 6.5

Some Really Bad News

It saddens me to talk about this but the video game industry has suffered an attack today. PSN has been down. At first it was a simple DDoS attack but it escalated to much more.Sony has stated that no personal data has been stolen. It looks like the hackers are after much more. Sony president ,John Smedley,  was on a flight from Dallas to San Deigo when he got a bomb threat. Luckily the flight was diverted to Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport and no one was harmed. But now Xbox Live is experiencing issues by the same people. The FBI is working on this and hopefully those responsible will be caught and no one will be harmed. We will update you when more information is available.

Xbox issues are now resolved, PSN is back online
