Battlefield 1 vs Call of Duty Infinite Warfare

I’ve been playing video games since I was a wee tot.  It was about 7 years ago or so that I decided to try my first shooter, Call of Duty.  I’ve been a loyal  player for years with the occasional dabbling in Battlefield.  I did enjoy Battlefield Hardline, story mode, but a glitch with it on my PS4 put that at an abrupt halt.

The excitement for Call of Duty Infinite Warfare was very present at E3.  IT was hyped up and looked promising.  As always I went to the midnight release and picked up my copy.  It was soon after that I realized that fighting in space wasn’t exactly the makings of good game play.  Running on walls, the cheating, the same old simple maps, were just not impressing me.

I decided that maybe the single player game would be full filling.  Again I was wrong.  There was nothing new here except location.  The “rigs” we got to wear but nothing gripping.

Now I was absolutely adamant about not playing Battlefield 1.  Even though I was very impressed at E3, I always considered myself a COD person, ya know?

I was wrong.

Battlefield 1 has a beautifully written storyline, an engulfing world which takes you back.  The guns are not these high tech blasters, they are the older, real used guns you saw back in the war.  The real war, not the one we are fighting in space.

I think COD needs to get back to basics.  Back to what made them what they are today.  I defiantly think that all the cheating, and if you don’t think there is any going on your severely mistaken, has to be regulated.  Really, put people in rooms based on how they play, how they rank.  Similar styles.  I always get put in with clans who talk to each other, run on walls, have altered guns, and really it just makes the experience, well, not fun.

I still think there is hope for COD.  I know there will be another installment.  Let them follow Battlefield 1 and give us an engrossing storyline.  WIth epic gameplay.

 

Gamestop Expo Begins Tomorrow in Anaheim.

For all you gamers out there if you are a Gamestop patron, what better way to connect with games than by heading to the annual Gamestop Expo, tomorrow in Anaheim CA?  It is a really fun expo, not like E3 or Comic-Con where it is more serious, and a lot of business going on.  This is truly an expo for gamers.

It begins at 11am and ends at 6pm at the Anaheim Convention Center.  It is also right across from Disneyland.  After you game, you can go have a night at Disney.

I’m hoping to see a bit more from Titanfall 2.  I was impressed with the first game but it really fizzled out for me after  few months.  This is one game I will be seeking out.

Virtual reality is a no brainer.  Of course I want to get my hands on some of it.  In particular, Playstation’s Morpheus.  E3 was just too hectic to get in for me.  I did however manage to do some VR on a Galaxy phone.  Loved it.

I’ll definitely be posting on my Facebook and I will recap tomorrow the days findings.

Happy Gaming!

E3 2016 Is On The Horizon

Unknown

 

June is one of my favorite months sole because E3 is in June.  I always see things that I will think about for the next few months and possibly years.  The atmosphere is very up beat and there is a ton of gaming what can I say?

This year I am hoping to see some mind blowing things from Rockstar.  Maybe Red Dead 2? Please.  I would like to try out the newest Call of Duty and Battlefield 1.

Now I have also been waiting for The Last Guardian for I don’t know how long.  This would be a great game to be able to get my hands on. Heck I’d even be okay with another video.  Made from the Ico folks I’m sure it will do well.

How about some new Virtual Reality?  Im curious.  The only time I’ve encountered in Virtuality was the Interstellar movie before the premier.  It felt so real!

What are you looking forward to this year? I am taking requests to check out different things

Uncharted 4 is a Breath of Fresh Air


Uncharted 4 came out this week and it was refreshing to play.  It looks amazing on the PS4.  It felt like seeing an old friend, Nathan Drake, Sully.  

It’s rare these days to be taken on an adventure that you can enjoy and want to be a part of.  It’s not all run and gun.  The environments are elaborate and detailed and are brought to life right before your eyes.

Even if you haven’t played any of the Uncharted games, Uncharted 4 is easy to pick up, play and enjoy.

Call of Duty Black Ops III Awakening

We Playstation 4 owners have gotten the Awakening DLC maps for our Call of Duty Black Ops III.  I really like the maps, they seem to bring back old memories.  Skyjacked, from a previous COD, is especially fun for me.  However I do enjoy the new maps that we’ve never played.

Splash is an especially fun map to play.  It’s a old abandoned waterpark, and yes, while we have played in old amusement parks, this one is kinda cool.  It’s not tight and you can spread out across the map.  Swimming is especially helpful and the ability to shoot under water is great.

I’ve always been a Xbox player due solely to the fact that I would get the maps early.  Now, surprisingly that PS4 gets them a month earlier its a nice incentive to use my Playstation some more.

I look forward to the next waves of DLC.  It keeps the game fun to play.  It’s all a matter of opinion, some don’t like the series.  I do.
