Cyberpunk 2077, Keanu Reeves

It’s been weeks, months, years that we have been waiting for Cyberpunk 2077. Now with that being said I am very pleased that Keanu Reeves is joining the games. I don’t know if that was the plan all along or if it just came up recently. Either way, I’m pretty happy with it. If you are attending E3 this year, CD Project Red has announced that they will be having demos on the show floor and b behind closed doors. his may be on I will try to play. I’ve waited so long for this game.

We finally have a release date of April 20, 2020. That isn’t too far away and it makes me happy that we don’t have to wait too much longer. For those of you that aren’t familiar with the game, in Cyberpunk you are a customizable mercenary v. It is set in a dystopian Night City in California. It is an open world game with 6 distinct regions, played in a first person perspective.

I do not believe that Cyberpunk will have a mulitplayer mode, however if the story is strong, we won’t need one. There is alot of hype around this game, more than I could write here, but I will leave the trailer below.

Call Of Duty Blackout

I’ve been playing Call of Duty for years now. I know that there are many of us out there who have played the game for years. In fact, perhaps its oversaturated and overrated, but the bottom line is, we play it, and we play it a lot, if not everyday.

I played Call of Duty WWII for a few months, jumped into the Fortnite bandwagon and now I’ve found myself playing Call of Duty. Since day one release I’ve been playing the standard modes, Hardpoint, Team DeathMatch, Domination…It wasn’t until about two weeks ago, that I finally decided, I’m going to play “Blackout” mode.

Blackout is not Fortnite, not by a long shot. You might think it is, but it’s much more realistic and there is lot of thought and planning that has to go into even coming close to winning. In Blackout, you really never know what you’re going to find. In fact, you don’t know WHO you might find as a lot of players seem to hide out.

Sometimes you can hear them on the ATV’s that can be found around the map. There are also trucks and helicopters that are available, but those to alert you to who’s near by. It’s a game where you need to be aware, be fast and know where you are going.

Half the time you don’t even see it coming, a sniper on a roof, a missile from an RPG. Or sometimes you just know that if you go for that supply drop, someone is out there waiting, just waiting to pick you off and have that loot to themselves. Then again, there may be someone out there to get them too.

All in all, after finally giving the Blackout mode a chance, I find that I like it. The more I play the better I get. I still do enjoy the modes we are used to playing, but at least in this version you are not flying around on jet packs. That lost me in I think it was COD Infinite Warfare. That was a pretty insanely ridiculous game, yet I stuck around and waiting for the franchise to make a game that would bring me back, and this is the game. One thing I particularly like is that a lot of the maps are old maps from previous games so it feels familiar. If you haven’t picked up Black Ops, I recommend that you do, there’s been a price drop at Gamestop.

E3 3018 A Reflection

It’s been a week since E3 2018 took place.  We’ve been going for many years.  The past two years with the opening of it to the public really made an impact on the show, and not in a good way.  This year however, it seems they had a plan, made it easy to get your badge, get in and it was not over saturated.  This is the first year with the public that I said to myself “maybe I will come back again”.   There was a point where I was absolutely never coming back as long as the public was allowed in.

You couldn’t get to try the games, they gave out the most minimal swag, and it was like trying to get through a maze of lost people.

One change that was made this year was the security measures that they put in place and that all has to do with the state of the world.  Really nothing to do with the show.  I thought they did a great job getting people in, through I felt it was a little strict, but rather be strict than sorry.

I’m not going to get into the games that I saw this year.  I’ve been thinking about which ones I thought I was going to buy, doing some research on the ones I did’t get to play.

All in all they made this show fun, and I learned quite a bit.   If you do have the ability to buy a gamer pass for next year I would, but unfortunately a lot of the games shown at E3 don’t come out for years.  That’s on the developers.

I’ll be writing about the games I played, what I saw, and putting up some pictures.   Many pictures are on my Instagram and Twitter. Which are both on our page.

Check it out! Let us know our thoughts and what you want us to cover.

Detroit: Becoming Human a Review

I am not new to playing Quantic Dream games.  I’ve played Heavy Rain and Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy years ago.  Both games I played through.  If you know me, you’d know that me and playing games completely through do not go hand in hand.  I spend a lot of time playing Call of Duty multiplayer.

Two weeks ago I began playing Detroit: Becoming Human.  I had read reviews, seen the trailers and read comments.  Still, I didn’t know what I was getting in to at the time.

In Detroit, you control 3 different androids, essentially created by humans to either help humans or be their companions.  We play as Connor, a detective, Kara, a nanny type and Marcus, more of a companion to an older gentleman named Carl.

This and the previous games I mentioned are absolutely story driven.  It’s not your hack and slash kind of games.  Every single choice you make has a very important consequence.

As you play through the game you begin to feel for the androids, at least I did.  I saw a lot of what we are going through here in the U.S in this game.  Which really made it feel real.  There were many, many  times when I was so embroiled in the game that my emotions had gotten the best of me.

The game isn’t long, but there is a lot to do and a lot of thinking to do.  Yet in your first run through, you really don’t know what exactly is going to happen.  You just know that the androids are having feelings, that humans are trying to suppress them.  I really didn’t encounter too many androids that were bad, they had all been programmed well.  Connor was the most advanced android I controlled and boy when you get to the end, and realize you made the wrong choices, it makes you feel bad.

It is one of those games where you do have to hit the keys in order as they appear on the screen.  Similar to the first few God of Wars (the new one is pretty good too, but that’s for another post).

Quantic Dreams doesn’t have many games but the ones they do are high quality, I feel the same way about Rockstar games.  I am playing Beyond Two Sounds right now, which is included in the PS Now line up.  For $19.99. a months it is definitely worth it, to have access to over 600 games, some even are ps3 games and that’s okay, some of those were great, and able to be played again, even years later.  Check out the trailer for Detroit: Become Human below, but I highly recommend checking this game out on your own.  The trailer doesn’t do it justice.
