Destiny Glacier White PS4 Bundle Limited Edition and my first ever Midnight Launch

Last night September 8th 2014… I went to a midnight launch for the first time in my life!  It only took me 40 years to do so… but I am proud to say “i’ve done one” in my life… Will it be my last… ummm I’m not sure…

The story begins with me heading into Gamestop on a Wednesday (the week before) to see what I could get for a PS3 Slim model I just wasn’t using… I don’t use ebay for video games anymore due to all the scams and what not… So Gamestop and selling to friends is my only option… The super helpful guy told me there was a deal going on for the new Destiny game or even the regular PS4.   I’d get 150 bucks for my ps3 slim if I put it towards a new PS4 system… I asked him if I could bring in two systems and get 300 bucks and he said “sure, what do you have?”    I told him I could trade in a xbox 360 i am not using… He said “as long as it is the 250 gig you will get 150 for that one as well”    That means I get 300 bucks off a brand new PS4….   I had a few days to think about it… Well at least I thought I did…

I brought the little flyer home and stared at it… I was thinking to myself… Do I really need another system?  I have the Xbone and Wii U already… Will I even have time to play it…  It kept me up all night stewing over it…

The Next morning I woke up (because I like to sleep on decisions like this) and decided what the hell… I’m going for it… and I want the PS4 Destiny bundle with the Limited Edition Glacier white PS4...

I head to the Gamestop after work… We take care of all the bizness and we hit a road block… It was to late to Pre Order the PS4 Destiny Bundle…   Well the super cool gamestop guy Will totally got on the phone and made some calls to find out what he could do for me… So he figured it out… I picked up the regular ps4 that day… brought it home and couldn’t use it or open it!   I had to call first thing Monday morning to find out if I could return the ps4 and get the PS4 Destiny Bundle…   Will answered the call and said… Yes, but get here by 6pm today (Monday 8th, 2014).

So when I left work… I was hoping for no traffic and I was in luck!   Go there at 5:45 and was the 3rd person there… They had one… I mean 1 ps4 Glacier Model in stock and the rest where pre orders…  I snagged that $h!t up but couldn’t go home with it… I had to come back at midnight to get it… If I didn’t they won’t hold it for me… Because technically I pre paid for it and already owned it… But they couldn’t give it to me till September 9th 12:00 am…

So that left me forced to go to my first ever Midnight launch!    It wasn’t what I was expected… it was a lot more fun then I could imagine.. It felt a lot like Christmas!   Everyone was in a super cool mood… guys where tossing a football in the parking lot… tailgating and everyone was eating Wendy’s burgers…

I did a little video of recapping the night so check it out below… and will I ever do another Midnight launch?  As much fun as it was… I will go with a definitely maybe?

Worms for Xbox One and PS4 is coming…

 

One of my favourite childhood PC games is finally coming to next-gen console! Worms Battlegrounds, featuring familiar favourites such as the Concrete Donkey, Old Woman and Super Sheep are all set to make their debut on Xbox One and PS4 on the 30th of May.

Worms Battlegrounds is an outrageously entertaining game that’s going to be available as a digital download and as a physical release in specific retailers. It’s been almost 20 years since the franchise first debuted in 1995… and it’s about time it made the leap to next-gen console.

I’ve always been a huge fan of this humorous battle game and it’s pretty much guaranteed to be fun for the whole family, especially as the Fort and Death match modes are multiplayer and can accommodate up to 4 players online or locally. It’s a great game to play with kids and you can keep the online roulette on the back burner until you’ve put them to bed…and still have fun in the interim.

The release features 5 environments, 10 Worm-Ops time attack missions and 25 single-player story missions. If you are a fan of the franchise-and really who isn’t? – You’ll notice many similarities to the series classic editions, and many familiar weapons are making a comeback. There are 65 weapons and utilities included in total, and 10 new items that sound just as enjoyable as earlier features. The Worm Charm, Bovine Blitz, Whoopsie cushion and Mega Mortar are just some of the games additions, and they all seem like they going to be perfectly suited to the worm-blasting war theme.

Those playing the PS4 version of Worms Battlegrounds can make use of the DualShock 4’s touch pad and will be able to assign and change weapons in single swipe. The colour of the light in the controller’s colour bar will also change to reflect your worm’s status immediately after a strike. The Xbox version of the game will include SmartGlass companion app support so you can keep tabs of your stats on your phone.

I don’t know about you… but I’m ready for Worms Battlegrounds to enter the next-gen arena and I can’t wait till the end of May!

COD Ghosts… what is old is new again!

Ok, before you judge… the game came out in Nov 2013…  So that counts as a forgotten game right?  lol  just kidding… I do enjoy this series of games but lost interest when you kept just getting the same thing over and over… Plus 60 bucks might not seem like a lot but with my limited amount of time to play videos games due to my little family of mine… I just made the choice to give up on the series…. but got a coupon and it was on sale GameFly so for 10 bucks including shipping I had to give it a try… Plus my coupon was about to expire… played it last night for an hour and ranked up to 6 already… ‘kid still got it” and yes I enjoyed it very much so… even though my weapons are horrible to start with…

I know TitanFall is the big behemoth that everyone is playing now… and the price goes up and down on a daily basis  and right now is 36 bucks with free shipping with prime…

And still lots of people playing… anyone here still playing?   LOL

Happy 25th Birthday Game Boy by Nintendo

Feeling old?  Well 25 years isn’t that old but still… Who remembers getting their first Game Boy?    It was May 1989 for my Birthday… and I still have that one in complete working condition and complete in box… I didn’t collect to many games for it but I enjoyed every game I ever had for it.   There are a few I’d still like to get for it… but those will all come in due time…   With all that said… Happy Birthday Game Boy by Nintendo!

Titan Fall on PC first time ever playing….

Well at the time I played this game… we where all “Noobs” playing TitanFall… I got a chance to play the PC beta version before it hit the shelves or DLC…  At first I didn’t like the game… I don’t know if it was because I am not use to playing games with a mouse and keyboard or the tutorial was extremely in depth and went on forever and ever!   What ever the case was… I gave it a second chance…

The Beta version didn’t let you play any of the campaign so I was forced to hop right online in the thick of it… There where a ton of players already leveled up to the max the demo would allow… Even though the game/beta was only out for like 24 hours…  it is amazing how this game took everyone by storm… lots predicted it… one being Patrick Scott Patterson who posted on his you tube channel a video with permission from Microsoft https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1D7DWrHKyYw

With all that said… Here is some game play footage of my first online match…   You can see I am very clumsy with the mouse and keyboard but I did kill some noobs before the experts took me down…  see the video below

With all this being said… I now have a donated xbox 360 wired controller and wouldn’t mind finding out if it will work in the first place and second how I would do with a controller on a PC versus a bunch of already leveled up experts… well for 60 bucks… I’ll have to find out when there is a price drop and at that point… (which won’t happen soon)  I’ll be so far behind the learning curve… I’ll have my more than my Titan falling out on me…
