The Legend Of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds -{Nintendo 3DS}-

What I love about the 3DS that I Can't say about the Wii U is that the 3DS has great games Nintendo's latest Zelda game is prime example of what I'm talking about. This game is great for a handheld, Zelda's storyline's are always great in most cases. The game plays Top Down and this is 1 of the games I actually use the 3D effect, gameplay is outstanding IMHO, graphics are typical. Some interesting points Link gets the power to merge into walls, you can receive all weapons if you rent them. Overall a great game for all 3DS owners.

Defiance {XBOX 360}

This MMO was started as a collaborative effort between Trion and Syfy network along with the Sci-Fi series Defiance which I must say is pretty good but the game I Love It. For some reason it reminds me a lot of Borderlands as far as art style, and some gameplay features. Ark Hunters have in them what they call EGO (Environmental Guardian Online), which helps navigate the player. I think the Character customization is great, graphic are ok, and gameplay is great there's nothing better than meeting up with other online players to battle enemies and such. The storyline is pretty good to I highly recommend this game.

Killzone: Shadow Fall -{PS4}-

Killzone Shadow Fall may become my favorite 1 yet, this game is action packed I love the way the Dualshock 4 is intergrated with this game using all of its features including the touch pad which you use in the game to control your faithful drone which can be set to Attack, Hack, Shield, and Zipline. Again Next Generation is in full swing, the graphics in this game are excellent, gameplay and controls are great, to me the storyline grabs you and pulls you in. I don't know anyone who purchased the PS4 that didn't get this game a great title to start your PS4 Journey.

Nintendo's Campaign?

With Microsoft's XBOX One on the way it makes me wonder if Nintendo is trying to steal some shine from them. With The Legend Of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds-{3DS}-, Mario Party Island Tour-{3DS}-, Super Mario 3D World-{Wii U}-, and a 3DS XL Limited Edition Bundle with The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds all being released on the same day as the XBOX One. To be honest out of those titles I plan on actually getting The Legend Of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, although I Know some people may get the Mario games and they should do pretty decent along with the Zelda 3DS XL Bundle but should not damage XBOX One Sales. I think what Nintendo is doing is great and i hope it gets better.







Tekken Tag Tournament 2 -{Wii U Edition}-

Just got this for the Wii U, Tekken is already a great fighting game no matter what system but the Wii U Edition has a few perks I like. One being the Mushroom Battle Feature where you can pick up different mushrooms for unique abilities, you can also customize your character with Nintendo based cross over costumes like Mario's, you can also use the Wii U Game Pad to execute moves and set combo's. My only complaint about this game is on the Wii U it takes so long to find an Online opponent if you find 1 at all other than that It has all your favorite Tekken fighters so pick this up for the Wii U and get online and fight.

Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition -{Wii U}-

I finally decided to purchase this game let me say first I never played this on the XBOX 360 or PS3 so I am not tainted nor do I know which 1 looks better and all of that, and NO I would not have bought this if I already bought it for another console. I will say this it is as good as everyone I know who has played it and game reviews I have read, Arkham Asylum was a pretty good game and this follow is better. I love the intergration of the Wii U Game Pad for this game and the enhanced features of the Bat Suit. A lot of reviews dogged the Wii U version but I enjoyed it. I do understand there may be frame rate issues but it didn't look that bad to me so if you like Batman pick this up if you have a Wii U.

Playstation 4 Review

The 8th Generation is in full swing with the release of the Playstation 4, let me say I went to the Midnight release at Gamestop waited in line for about 30 minutes got home hooked it up and it was on and popping. With an 8-core AMD x86-64 CPU, 8 GB GDDR5 Ram, 500 GB Hard Drive this console really impressed me. I like the user interface or OS, Sony has made this very easy to use but if you owned a Playstation 3 the interface will seem almost the same IMHO. The Dualshock 4 may be the best controller I put my hands on it is very comfortable, it also has a touch pad which also seems to work as button. Day one of hooking this console up I have 1 complaint and it's minor, after doing the system update internet connections was on and off which is something I feel should have been ready to go. The Systems launch lineup wasn't that hot (but what console is), overall for $399.99 you can't go wrong with this buy they have step up the game in the console wars! Playstation Plus memberships role over from the PS3 and Vita, the game Drive Club was announced at E3 to be free to members but has been pushed back till 2014. I used the Playstation Vita functions on the PS4 with the remote play feature and it worked great, to those who bought a PS4 hope you are enjoying it as much as I am.

BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea Episode 1

Burial At Sea Episode 1 is the 1st part of DLC availible for Bioshock Infinite, It takes place in Rapture, the underwater city that was the setting for the first two BioShock games. Taking place on New Year's Eve in 1958 Elizabeth enlists Booker to find a young girl. All I will say is this is action packed like everything else Bioshock there are new Plasmids, Weapons, and Gear to get. Old Man Winter is a new Plasmid you can use to freeze water to make bridges and freeze enemies and shatter them awesome. Check out Episode 1 of Burial At Sea great action.

Call Of Duty: Ghosts -{PS3}-


Originally I was getting this for the PS4 but changed my mind because most of the people I know is playing it on PS3 so that's where I'm at so where shall I begin? How about it's typical Call Of Duty not saying it's not good but typical, graphics are ok again it's Call Of Duty, I guess for me the make or break of this game is the storyline which is excellent in campaign mode. I'm not a spoiler guy so ill just say this it is very exciting to me love the action bullets flying knives thrown etc... Multiplayer with any COD game you have to get use to the maps until you do for me anyway it's a super shooting fest lol. Overall the Multiplayer is always great I can't complain. I will recommend this game I think it's a great shooter. PCmag.com reported topped $1 billion in retail sales on day one, Activision announced Wednesday. That number represents sales to stores, not to actual customers. Here the link to that article: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2426827,00.asp?kc=PCRSS03069TX1K0001121

Grand Theft Auto V



GTA V developed by Rockstar North and published by Rockstar Games, let me say first I went to the Midnight Release at A local Gamestop, the line was around the corner. People really showed there asses lol by driving off burning rubber yelling and screaming it was insane. I got the game for the XBOX 360 got home and had to wait almost an hour for the damn near 8 Gigabyte install lol. When it was done now its time to play, the game starts out fantastic with a bank robbery in progress and a great shootout. It's played in the third person perspective action and gameplay is great, graphics are awesome while playing it it really felt like a movie. I will also say this it is not a game suitable for young children but a great game non the less, easy nominee for Game Of The Year!

Killzone Mercenary {PS Vita}



Killzone Mercenary developed by Guerrilla Cambridge and the 5th in the Killzone Series. Available only on the Playstation Vita this 1st person shooter may be the best game so far to be released on the system IMHO. Graphics in this game are great and IMHO are comparable to Killzone 2 & 3 on the PS3. The feel is awesome all the buttons are in the right place also with the touch screen makes melee on enemies great. Gameplay is awesome for a handheld this will make a great edition to your PS Vita Collection.

Bioshock Infinite - DLC Clash In The Clouds -{PS3}-


Finally the first Downloadable Content for Bioshock Infinite Clash In The Clouds with 4 levels Raven's Dome , The OPS Zeal, Duke and Dimwit Theater, and the Emporia Arcade. You fight in different waves and you can achieve what they are calling Blue Ribbon Challenges depending on things like killing with a shotgun only or Skyline attacks ETC... If you don't perform the Blue Ribbon Challenges you will not get credit but as long as you get through the wave that's all that matters. As with Bioshock Infinite the graphics and gameplay are awesome, being a fan of the Bioshock series this DLC is worth it check it out.

Wonderful 101 -{Wii U}-


Wonderful 101 developed by Platinum Games and published by Nintendo will be released in North America September 15th 2013, the Demo is available in the Nintendo eShop. Playing this Demo at first was exciting but some controls on it became difficult until i got the hang of it. The game is very colorful, your heroes range from different colors and names like Wonder Red, Wonder Blue, and Wonder Green just to name a few. It's a collective game which all heroes work together for a common goal to defeat space aliens called the GEATHJERK. I would say from what I played it is very action packed, I will be picking this up day one on release.

Nintendo 2DS And Wii U Price Cuts




A new way to play the Nintendo 2DS, without the 3D basically it looks like a brick to me and will be available October 12 2013. I think this could work if marketed toward kids me personally I'm fine with my 3DSXL but i don't use the 3D a lot. My only reserve about this is being use to the DS line Nintendo handhelds is that is doesn't fold but at $129.99 it doesn't need to. Just in time for the Holiday too along with the Wii U dropping in price from $349.99 to $299.99 Nintendo is hoping that they can sell more consoles with there line up of games they got coming out but if its true that software sells hardware I can't see me getting but maybe 1 or 2 titles they got slated. Good Luck Nintendo!

The Walking Dead ~{TellTale Games}~ 2012's Game of The Year?



Are you serious? This is the game that got all the hype 2012's Game Of The Year? I have to be honest I am a big fan of the show this game by TellTale Games is not GOTY material IMHO. I like The Walking Dead Survival Instincts better, I mean again the graphics are not great but graphics don't make a great game in which is what I've heard about this game. To me the story is boring I was told by several people who played it that it's so emotionally charged you will damn near cry and the gameplay is great, how far from the truth. I guess also it has it's fans and people that like it but it's just not my cup of tea, I don't like the controls, the interactions at times are to long, engaging in battle is not great. The game is not good to me at all I hear they are working on another 1 if that is true hopefully I won't have the same feelings.

Tomb Raider Review




Let me say this is an easy candidate for Game Of The Year IMHO great gameplay, great storyline, great graphics. Being trap on an island I guess you have to learn skills to survive, how to make and use weapons, protect your friends no matter what the cost. I love to engage in battle and shoot fire arrows through the skulls of enemies, looting tombs is awesome with decent puzzles to solve. Again the story draws you in to Lara Croft's struggles which made me feel connected to the character if you played you already know if not copp it.

Sleeping Dogs Review




I've had a chance to finally play this game it sat laying around my house as I played and done other things. WTF was I thinking when I bought it day 1 I should have started playing day 1 and I have missed out on a great game for months. First of all this Square Enix's version of a Grand Theft Auto or a Saints Row IMHO, but Sleeping Dogs is a lot more fun. 1 you play as a undercover cop in Hong Kong trying to infiltrate some triad you get in through your childhood BFF what separates this game is the mission types you can play. You have Triad leveling, Cop leveling, and Face leveling,  triad of course is the crime part you can play, you can throw your cop buddies busts as you move along, Face leveling consists of you doing favors for people around town gauge on your popularity. All and all I know I'm late but this is a great game if you are like me play it now you will not be disappointed.

Project X Zone ~{3DS}~ The Gameplay



Finally I got the chance to play Project X Zone and it s a very interesting game reminds me a lot of Fire Emblem Awakening with the turn style play and Fighting style game elements. You play with different characters created by Sega, Capcom, and Namco Brandai, gameplay is not as good as Fire Emblem Awakening but then again I may be a little bias because I love that game. Nonetheless PXZ is a good game with different types of ememies and you move your fighters on the board like chess pieces against them. IMHO this game is worth buying especially if your favorite fighters from the different publishers are in it. I really like the support system it has when battling, you can call extra characters to aid you in battle when in cases you can wipe an enemy out quick unless it's a Boss and it will take a little more work. Graphics are typical but good for the 3DS, this game is worth a buy check it out.

X-Files ~{Season 10}~




Mulder and Scully return in Comic book fashion, being Dub as The X-Files Season 10 picking up right after the X-Files Movie I Want To Believe, Being published by IDW Publishing and Executive Producer Chris Carter and X-Files creator will be providing feedback to the creative team. This isn't what I was expecting but it is welcome due to I love the series, I will be getting everyone and eagerly waiting for the alien struggle to continue. Amazon.com has a released date July 23rd 2013, you can also look on Amazon.com for the first few pages of this graphic novel. So X-Files fans show y'all ass stand up and TRUST NO 1!

 http://www.amazon.com/X-Files-Classics-1-Charlie-Adlard/dp/1613776632/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1372222167&sr=1-2&keywords=x-files+comic

Titanfall ~{XBOX ONE}~



At first look at the Titanfall trailers I wasn't impressed but as I watch it then the countdown for your Titan falling out of a ship high above dropping to the ground and you jump in it and start kicking ass I must say it got me lol. This first person shooter being developed Respawn Entertainment and published by EA is due out Q1 2014 an exclusive game to the XBOX ONE is gonna be fantastic. Being a multiplayer game only but you play can play single player objectives as far as the plot and storyline. Graphics look good hopefully with all the hype behind this title it will live up to expectation.

Naughty Dog's The Last Of Us -{PS3}-


Finally The Last Of Us is out on PS3 and I'm over excited for this game, I'm not gonna spoil it for those getting it but I will say the graphics are great, gameplay and storyline is great. As far as the controls go I love how quick and how natural it feels to switch weapons, make medkits so on and so forth. The Last Of Us is easily a nominee for Game Of The Year this is by far the best game Naugthy Dog has brought forth although I love all the Uncharted's.

Dead Island -{XBOX 360}-

A friend recommended this game to me and much to my surprise I like it, Dead Island killing zombies once again great! What I like about this game is the upgrade and level system, also the ability to carry up to 6 or 7 weapons to toggle between. Weapons do degrade after so many uses but there are always pipes and boards laying around you can use to kick ass. The main storyline is a great with enough side mission to have you playing for hours. Graphics are good blood is spilled what more could you want? The next game in this series Dead Island: Riptide I have not played yet but plan on doing so soon, it was also recommended to me. Get into it!

The Walking Dead: Survival Instincts -{Wii U}-

Now I have not played the first Walking Dead game the 2012 Game Of The Year which I plan on doing, but I am such a big fan of the show I had to get this game and on the Wii U. Killing Zombies is always great for me and nothing has changed in this game Zombie kills are awesome. This is a prequel to the show that comes on A&E and you play Darryl crossbow wielding zombie killing machine. The storyline I think is enough to keep the player interested but for a lot of people it just wasn't enough, for me it held my attention just cause I love the show. The graphics are just ok and I've seen it on all platforms nothing to Bragg about but if u love The Walking Dead and a gamer and want to be a completist play it. The Wii U Gamepad is used much like in Zombi U switching items and weapons in and out. I would not recommend this game for the hardcore just fans of the series.

Injustice: Gods Among Us -{Wii U}-

Injustice: Gods Among Us on the Wii U is great I've read some complaints some are valid like where's the DLC Nintendo lol other than that I love fighting games. Made by Netherelm the same studio who dropped the classic Mortal Kombat, Injustice is another great brick to there catalog. Graphics are outstanding IMHO love the storyline and all the other perks of this game fighting fans should support this game no matter what platform it is, I highly recommend this! The online multiplayer is ok sometimes it does take to long to find an opponent but once u do it's on and poppin. You can also use the Wii U Pro Controller also play off the tv on the Gamepad, it has all of your favorite DC comic characters my favorite right now is Green Lamtern get into it.

Soul Sacrifice -{PS Vita}-


Soul Sacrifice is a JRPG from Japan Studio and I must say it's awesome, from the character customization to spells it just awesome. You use a book as your guide and take the path of a once great Sorcerer of who's book it was and you live out there life basically. In the book you relive quests and emotions of this long dead Sorcerer, this game has pretty good graphics and a great storyline I recommend to all Vita owners pick this 1 up if our are into RPG's.

Bio Shock Infinite -{PS3}-



Developed by Irrational Games for me this has been one of the games I've been waiting on and finally it's here. I loved the first Bio Shock the second was good but was missing something to me, with Infinite it seems Irrational Games put all the pieces together to make a great game. This first person shooter you play Booker DeWitt former Pinkerton Agent sent to the Air city of Columbia to find a young Woman Name Elizabeth. When you find her she works as a great A.I. Helping you when you are low on weapons ammunitions and vigors to restore your powers. She totally takes care of herself in a battle no matter how fierce or crazy it may get, just be prepared for great gameplay. The scenic views in this game are beautiful especially when you hook to the Skyline and go for a ride. This game is highly recommended get it. Oh and no spoilers but this has one of the greatest endings of all time!



Tomb Raider 2013 -{XBOX 360}-

I never been a big Tomb Raider Fan but this reboot of the series has reeled me in like a fish Lara Croft's humble beginnings, this game is one of the best this year. Lara struggles with her crew who has been ship wrecked on an island of what I call disaster because what can happen will happen to Lara. She has to learn basic survival which makes forces her to kill to eat kill to survive and you can get into the story feel bad for her at the same time feel bad for the people she is forced to kill because she does become deadly. The Gameplay is awesome with great graphics Square Enix really did the damn thing on this one I highly recommend this game.

Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper -{Wii U}-




Again I never played a Dynasty Warrior game until I played the one released on the PS Vita then I went and purchased Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper for the Wii U. I must say I am growing very fond of this series which has prompted me to go back and play previous games. This installment on the Wii U is action Packed I love it, this hack and slash with characters from Dynasty Warriors, Samurai Warriors and some others is great for those who like elements of action mixed with great weapon play. I love the idea of slashing hoards of enemies which make me feel untouchable check it out great game.

Castlevania: Lords Of Shadows Mirror Of Fate -{3DS}-




This new installment of Castlevania IMHO is pretty good with that classic side scrolling, Trevor Belmont, a knight of the Brotherhood of Light, sets out to avenge the death of his mother, at the hands of his own father, who has now returned from years of exile to take up residence in a mysterious castle. What was once Gabriel Belmont is now a powerful vampire called Dracula. Dracula has declared war upon the Brotherhood and thus the scene is set for a cataclysmic showdown between father and son. Gameplay is good you can use your weapons in different combinations some very powerful, along with and in traditional Castlevania style throwing objects like holy water, crosses. Graphics are of course on 3DS level but good overall this is a pretty good game worth a play check it out.

Sonic All-stars Racing Transformed~{3DS}~



Sonic All-stars Racing Transformed on the 3DS is a wild ride I must say with characters from Sega past time is cool. Depending on what character you choose your vehicle transforms from car to plane to boat this is nice for gameplay, it has the same dynamics as a Mario Kart game but Sega advanced it some and tweaked it. The boards are full of color which is great I must say, still with a Mario Kart fill having gaining power ups the same same way some exactly like a Mario Kart game others all together different. This game can stand alone and is a fun game to check out.

New Super Mario Bros. U~{Wii U}~



Mario is always best in a side scrolling adventure mostly everything about this game has been said but I'll just add that if you are a Mario fan this game is fun fun fun I have enjoyed it and being able to play off TV is a plus. I know a lot of people that got the Wii U didn't want a Mario game but hey I'd rather it sooner than later lol. On the bright side of things old or new Mario fans this game is fun and good and in HD so check it out.
