Batman Arkham Knight Trailer Reveals New Mechanic

Arkham Knight is the last installment in Rocksteady's Batman series. The new trailer features many characters from the batman universe like Robin, Nightwing, Catwoman, and Azrael. The first three incorporates a system called duel play. I'm not sure what this means, but it looks like a system reminiscent of GTA5's different playable characters. Azrael is a villian who made small appearances in Arkham City during a side quest. Arkham Knight comes out on June 23rd, but for now enjoy the trailer.

Black Ops 3 Trailer Brings New and Old Features

If you think Advanced Warfare wasn't futuristic enough, then you'll enjoy this Black Ops 3 trailer. The new game from Treyarch changes the formula while keeping with a familiar setting. This reveal boast futuristic elements such as hacking into drones, and turning your hand into a freak-en gun. Yes, Call of Duty has gone into the world of Dues Ex with cybernetic implants. It's hard to set an opinion based on this trailer. Some stuff seems cool but we have already seen it before in either Call of Duty or other games such as Titanfall. What is seen beyond the trailer proves to be something to look forward too. Call of Duty is moving into the co-op world. Yep, the campaign will be 4 player co-op with wide open areas! Can you believe it wide open areas in Call of Duty! This will encourage replay-ability and bring the hub where players can interact between missions. The multiplayer also brings a shift in the way of playing as actual characters. You get to choose between Ruin, Seraph, Outrider, and Reaper each bringing a different personalty and playstyle. This seems to be the biggest change in the Call of Duty formula yet. It will also have some sort of zombie mode. I am just wondering if the co-op campaign will degrade the quality of the plot and fall into Destiny territory. Or grow from it like Bloodborne. Black Ops 3 is proving to be a game with tons of potential. The question is: Can it live up to it?


What are your impressions of the new Call of Duty?

Another Silent Hill(PS4) video clip (Uh Oh Oh No Silent Hills has just been cancelled!)

It's always sad to hear of game cancellations, definitely one with so much potential!

Are you guy ready for the last TWD show?

Yes the last The Walking Dead show of season 5! Will be 90mins this mean about 1 hour with about 30 min for ads. The way Noah dies was the most violent way so far. On the The Talking Dead show ,the first time Chandler Riggs was on but  Gale Anne Hurd had said "there would be blood and not only zombie blood" meaning some more deaths.I believe most of the death would be the people of  Alexandria! One of Ricks group! Now for the people whom read the comic this is where Carl is shot and lost his eye! I don't believe they would do this with Carl but there is no telling about the TV show. But the comic creator Robert Kirkman had said he made a few mistakes when it came to people lost of body parts. Look to me they already had a one eye guy.
Look Carl with his eye gone look more scary than the walker! I don't think he would had live,it would be hard with all the medicine and etc the doctor have today for some to live through having  oh well just look at the comic.Now just image they have no doctor and very little medicine!!!Plus oh well I stop here.
Could the "W" cut into the walker be a "M"? as in Morgan????!!! Maybe he want Rick to see it and have Rick go"Where are you my friend Morgan?" But Rick isn't in the right mind nowdays! Plus I like the fact that Carol pull a knife to Pete and he was scare!!! Which was funny but Carol I think is going to kill him anyway once he take care of Tara! And Father Gabriel Stokes is the one to give advice .I wonder if he told them what he done.Boy that guy bugs me. I for one don't think he does nothing for Ricks group,he hang on and eat their food and take in water. Look Eugene is useful but the so called Father isn't.The Father is a chicken shit and so far what he done makes me and other people hate him.. I think if the walker got inside he would close the doors and allow people to die just to save himself,Hey this make him fit in,since the Alexandria is like him in a way!
I think the Rick group had been living outside for so long ,they can't just rest and live a normal live any more.Even Carl can't set around and play video games anymore.Normal old ways of life in boring to them now. Could they ever go back to their old life,doing normal thing like going to work without look around for walker and other humans. I think they can't because it would make them weak and in the Walking Dead world that is death!
The Alexandria people have no idea what the hell to do out side the walls. Rick group now have to baby sit all them all,just look what happen when Abraham had to take over the group,they would had leave him and the women until a few of them start fight off the walker ,this is their main plan leave yours people behind to die!! I'm not sure Rick group can trust weak people like that!....Oh well I could go on and on I leave it at this.
But I was hoping the other side show of the Walking Dead would be ready to carry us until this Oct for season 6!!!!!

Uncharted 4 A Thief's End

Sony's biggest exclusive has been delayed into 2016. This is a bad and good thing. Its good that they are taking the time needed to get it right, as long as it doesn't downgrade like Watch Dogs. Its bad because we have to endure longer and this was Sony's biggest exclusive of 2015. The delay is really going to hurt them. Here is what directors Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann said:
 "Since we showed you our first gameplay reveal of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, more of the game and story have come together, and it’s become clear to us that this game is much more ambitious than we originally envisioned. This game deserves every bit of the attention to detail, precise pacing, and nuanced storytelling Naughty Dog is known for."  

Here is the first gameplay reveal for Uncharted 4: 



I like how fluent the transition is from different types of gameplay and it looks more wide open. Plus that rope is awesome. Lets hope that the delay works in Naughty Dog's favor

Dying Light Review


 This world is filled with countless zombie mediums. I can’t even count all the different video games that feature zombies. And yet here comes another one in the form of Techland’s Dying Light. The concept is the same thing we have seen several times before, but the execution is truly something special.
  You play as GRE (Global Relief Effort) agent, Kyle Crane, who intercepts the zombie infested city of Harran to acquire a mysterious document. Crane gets attached to the survivors of Harran and decides to help them instead of support the corrupt GRE.  These survivors include the likes of Brecken, Jade, Sahir, Troy, and Rais. The first three are part of the tower who use parkour to get around the slums and save people.  Troy helps you out when you reach old town, the second section of the map. These people are all friendly while Rais, on the other hand, is the chaotic antagonist. This is your normal antagonist that could resemble a less developed version of a Far Cry villain. Every character has a different personality and you get attached to some of them, my favorite being Jade.  You will also learn to hate characters like Rais. The plot is good but features many zombie clichés. It’s also disappointing that your character turns into an errand boy which is actually a plot point.  It feels like Crane is not in control of anything and just does what people say.  There are places in the story that could have easily developed into a character choice that enfolds into different endings. Therefore this could encourage several playthroughs, but the developers decided not to go this route.  Everything about the story is average; this also includes acting and dialogue.  It’s enjoyable but does not become creative and instead resembles several clichés.
 The beginning of the game is very slow in both exposition and gameplay.  You don’t know any skills or have any good weapons. That makes the first few hours a little bit of a drag. The first missions resemble catch quests and are also a little slow. This got me worried that the whole game would be like this, but I was proven wrong.  Both the gameplay and missions improve drastically.  The missions have a miraculous transformation. Instead of catch quests, they evolve into a character driven experience that allows you to encounter many cool moments. Once you unlock skills and acquire new weapons the gameplay also gets a lot more fun.  The gameplay relies heavily on platforming.  You can climb on anything and many different paths are presented to you. The controls for this take some getting used to because the button is R1 which is not the traditional jump button for games.  Once you do get used to it, platforming becomes a fluent and fun experience that sets Dying Light apart. The idea of a first person zombie game that focuses on parkour is something that hasn’t been done before.  The weapons are also tons of fun to use and always bring a satisfying experience when you chop a zombie’s head off.  You can gather blueprints and craft some awesome weapons. Your skills tree also offers some cool abilities that are easy to use.  All this combined makes you fill like a professional zombie killer.
  The game is free roam and offers two different areas to explore.  One being the Slums while the other is a more fancy area with higher buildings to climb. The best part of this game may be the free roam because it offers the perfect amount of it. There is a lot to do but it doesn’t overwhelm you or get in the way of the story.  There are survivor camps to secure and once you do they will offer a safe house, fun challenges that allow you to compete against friends, and side quests.  The side quests are different every time, and offer some missions that are better than the campaign.  They remind me of side quests from a game like Skyrim or Fallout. This is all put together in an awesome day and night cycle. During the day zombies are slow but not much of a threat. But during the night, Volatiles come out. These zombies are fast, scary, and hard to kill. So at night time you have three options: be stealthy, find a safe house, or run for your life.  This day and night cycle is what makes Dying Light special.  Everything in this game can be played in co-op which is a fun addition. The other multiplayer section is- be the zombie mode. This is tons of fun and will keep you on the edge of the seat. One player is an advanced zombie that invades another player’s game and tries to kill them before he can destroy all the zombie’s nests.  
  Dying Light has a slow start but will quickly turn into a fun and addictive game. Techland’s new zombie game gets a 9.0

Better Call Saul Review

                                                   
                           http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/12/15/better-call-saul-poster-revealed
                     “The name’s Saul as in s’all good, man!”
   Better Call Saul is the prequel to Breaking Bad that has come out at an odd time for AMC, a channel criticized for not being able to create new dramas, and stretching out the ones they already have. This is proven through the recently announced The Walking Dead spin-off and Better Call Saul only enforces that criticism. Better Call Saul has already been called a “money grab” and has brought a mixed review of expectations.  Even if it is a money grab, or a stretching out of Breaking Bad, it doesn’t matter because it’s a pretty darn good show. 
 The show premiered on Sunday, February 8 with “Uno” then came back on the next day with “Mijo.” This Monday time slot is here to stay with the next episode being “Nacho.” This review will encompass these first three episodes.
 Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) is the dirty lawyer that’s in cahoots with Walter White and his drug business. Saul was a fan favorite, so why not make a Breaking Bad prequel? The show takes place before Breaking Bad with Jimmy McGill (Saul before he changed his name). It will be about how Jimmy becomes Saul in both personality and circumstance. Watching the show is a little sad because we know what type of person Saul becomes. We know he will go down an evil path like Walter White did.  
 Jimmy is living a pathetic life of an underpaid public defender. He lives in the back of a nail salon which also acts as his office. This is both humorous and melancholy.  We soon learn that he has to take care of Chuck. Chuck used to be a part of a big firm, but has to quit due to a phobia of electricity.  His old firm is paying him off with small amounts of money that he doesn’t deserve. Jimmy has to deal with this, but also has to deal with the criminal undertakings he gets dragged into. He starts to partake in unethical ways of gaining money and is uneasy about this, but soon realizes he’s actually pretty good at it. This new found money is used to raise his lawyer business and fight back against the large firm that treated him and Chuck so badly.
 Seeing Jimmy’s mind at work is truly something special. He is a smart yet very awkward character. His schemes are sophisticated yet humorous. You can see remnants of Saul in Jimmy’s personality.  Jimmy McGill makes the show with a great supporting cast. If you liked Breaking Bad, you will love Better Call Saul.
 Better Call Saul’s first season is already better then Breaking Bad. This is because Saul gets right into the plot while it took Breaking Bad a while to get into those nail biting moments. It’s amazing how you can find yourself on the edge of your seat while watching Better Call Saul. It also offers some dark comedy that’s pretty funny. My favorite is Mike Ehrmantraut (Breaking Bad’s Jonathan Banks) as a parking attendant. Better Call Saul offers everything from action to comedy and it is all put together with amazing camera work and performances from the whole cast.

 Better Call Saul is best when watched after Breaking Bad, but can still be enjoyed by newcomers. It is rated TV-14 and it is on AMC every Monday.
