Here’s my Obligatory Post About Call of Duty Black Ops 4

 

thrilledYay. Another one, I don’t know how many people out there will feel the same way, but I’m honestly just tired of Call of Duty titles. It could be a combination of a few things maybe it’s my teenage years Halo over COD bias, the abundance of COD titles over the years, or the stale state of COD games for about the past 10 years. In any case, as I read through the countless reviews and speculations of BLOPS 4 I can’t hide my indifference.

Usually, I get excited about most game releases even if it’s one I know I won’t play because I want to check out a specific game mode or some aspect of the game. Or I’m just interested in the route the game is going. Now, I have to admit, I wasn’t even mildly excited for BLOPS 4. Personally, I feel like COD has just run its course.  Anyway, here’s my brief first impression.

First Impression:

OMG yes! They are adding a battle royale mode! And wait they’re really going to add a 5v5 with tactical roles? No freaking way! One thought go through my mind when I heard and read these types of comments, like, just really? Is it not enough to take one popular game mode, you really must try and exactly mimic 2 of the most popular games from the past few years? Are they really going to do it better than Overwatch & Fortnite/Pubg? I have my doubts.

BLOPS 4Hey, listen, I get it – you have to adjust and grow with the times, but how about some originality? Some of you are probably rolling your eyes at this point because whatever most games take aspects of other and make it their own. There’s no bigger example this year than Fortnite and Pubg, but in my opinion, it was a great opportunity to truly use Fortnite’s build system already in-game fighting mechanics. It adds a full new dynamic to the mode. Now, sure COD will undoubtedly throw some new twists into the fray, but it just doesn’t seem genuine to me. Who knows? It might surprise me, but it’s safe to say I won’t be overly anxious to get into this one.

Tilted is Being Repaired and That is Friggin’ Awesome!

Tilted is Being Repaired and That is Friggin’ Awesome!

The kid (and the adult) in me is going wild today. After the latest update, which was implemented last night, Tilted Towers is being repaired. The giant crater that had been in the middle of Tilted is now patched over with a truck sitting on top of it. Now while it doesn’t sound all that exciting it’s a sign of things to come. I’m a big proponent of map changes as often as possible. It keeps things from becoming stale while not completely overhauling any bit of the game. Some people have been calling for other maps, so there’s some variance, but honestly, as long as they continuously update the original I don’t see a need for additional maps. It also keeps the balance between casual players and experienced players since casual players won’t have to learn all the “in’s and out’s” of each new map that comes out. This strategy also has a hidden benefit too – the devs can manage the drop rate of certain places. If somewhere gets too “hot” they can simply add in or take away that spot causing a shift in drop rates. This could be huge for balance and competition.

EpicEpic Games

Epic is seriously firing on all cylinders. Every time I have doubts about Fortnite they deliver better than I could imagine. I think they are truly paving the way for a new way of developing games. They listen to their community and then pump out tremendous content. Every time I thought something was going to be cheesy it is delivered in a very well thought out.

Keep up the good work Epic!

Random gaming conversation between two nerds ep. 1

Just a random conversation related to gaming where we talk about Fortnite’s new Infinity War game mode and then get into God of War being a little bit of a let down in a few ways.

We also talk about how revolutionary Batman: Arkham Asylum was and how nobody ever really gives it the credit for that that it deserves.

Our podcast will be launched pretty soon, guys! Stay tuned for more. If you like conversations like this,,, there will be plenty to come.

We are getting more and more into the idea of starting a podcast as time goes on. get in touch with us and let us know if that is something you would be into or if you would rather have videos.

I’m sure podcast vs. video is a debate that we are not the first ones to have by any means!

Enjoy this random gaming-related conversation.

tom
infinity war later?
I’m going to try to get on even tho i have a shit load of work to do in preparation for my show lol

kevin
Wait infinity war or fortnite lol

tom
fortnite infinity war you dick

kevin
Lmaoo

tom
Well either way,,,, i am going to try to get a few games in
idk how it is even gonna work tho if it is Solo only
like,,,, will they even let you play with friends idk

kevin
Doubt it think it’s just solos

tom
we used to do that in PUBG tho when we had more than 4 we would all just queue at the same time and it usually worked lol …. we used to have like 9 man squads and shit it was hilarious
we would all just wear a redshirt
shirts **

kevin
Lmao I’m sure it has a good chance of working
We’ll go default skin lol and be in a party

tom
yeah….. that actually sucks if its only Solo
but it wouldn’t make sense not being solo

kevin
Imagine duos “Yo hide ill brb just got Thanos gonna clean out an entire city”

tom
lol
i saw he can like jump and then smash down to earth it looks crazy
but like what are the chances of actually finding the infinity gauntlet
gauntlet**

kevin
yeah idk probably very rare lol
the only good thing is since we bought the battle pass we have missions in solos

tom
yeah
i think i’ve actually done most of the week 1 missions

kevin
and i honestly never play solo

tom
i pretty much always do when nobody is on
rather than matchmaking with noobs

kevin
lol honestly i usually just play a different game
i get very little excitement out of solo gaming at this point unless its a strategy game
I’m even struggling to go back to god of war which is ridiculous

tom
i finished god of war — it was a bit of a grind for me towards the end too….

there weren’t enough different enemies… felt like they just threw every possible combination at you throughout the game.

i don’t think i would have rated it a 10 honestly
its a great game but it wasn’t like fucking amazing throughout the entire experience
some of it got boring

kevin
I’m honestly kind of tired that LITERALLY every single player game now is an RPG

tom
well yeah they all have RPG elements
but God of War always did

kevin
true idk first time playing the series but like games like that i feel like i want to put a lot of time into to level my guy how i want etc. and the time aspect just isn’t worth it
much rather jump on fortnite, heroes, 2k quicker competitive type stuff

tom
yeah in a single player game the motivation to get through to the end and get your guy looking cool is less
because nobody even sees it lol

kevin
yeah and honestly any game with RPG elements i feel like they just get easier as the game goes along bc of the shit you unlock

tom
skyrim was the one exception but i played that at a different stage in my life i don’t even know if it’d be as into it now
yeah god of war not so much tho lol it was pretty hard throughout

kevin
true like they’re all objectively sick, but like how many can you really play

tom
i never stopped to grind or do side quests to it stayed hard

kevin
i put mad time into Fallout 4

tom
yeah fallout was sick
i got through alot of that too

kevin
yeah i went o.d for a while

tom
i probably didn’t even finish half of the game lol I don’t even know
i tried that survival mode when it came out it was retarded hard
but fun

kevin
i finished the main story line 2x 2 different factions but never touched the DLC which i paid for smh
yeah that survival mode was pretty brutal totally unforgiving lol

tom
yeah i definitely did not finish the storyline even one time
i was interested but somehow just stopped playing idk

kevin
well my suggestion if you ever do it as the underground guys i forgot their name
so sick busting out of the main lab from the inside

tom
oh the synths

kevin
rather than the brotherhood that just destroy that shit from the outside not nearly as fun
yeah the synths forgot their name \

tom
yeah… my issue with the whole game is that i find it too easy… you can just like hide in a corner and kill everyone without getting hir if you just find the right spot

kevin
the breakout was so dope bc you literally stock up from within and hatch this crazy plan lol

tom
either that or you get hit with a grenade and just die without any warning

kevin
yeah lmao
or you’re walking and a giant ass monster hits you with one swipe game over lol

tom
that’s just a pitfall of all sandbox type games tho
the glitchiness

kevin
yeah Bethesda is known for it at this point

tom
I didn’t finish farcy either

kevin
that’s why Zelda might literally be the best game ever created

tom
zelda was good because it left you actually wanting more
it never got stale
they got the length right

kevin
sandbox as the rest of them, but not one glitch in sight

tom
if they would have condensed god of war it wouldn’t have gotten stale either
it was too long

kevin
as much as a love the game I never even finished it lol i got to do that I’m almost done
yeah like no one wants to fucking grind after a certain point

tom
yeah like after a while your just throwing enemies at me to prolong the game
just get to the fuckin point

kevin
exactly lol

tom
was a good game,,, but overrated
you would have though you got a fuckin real life blowjob at the end of it the way IGN was ranting

kevin
yeah i mean i didnt get to that point, but it just feels like other games to me and honestly i rather play zelda lol
yeah lmaoooo

tom
it could have been just too hyped up
like….. when you give a game a 10 it better be fucking flawless

kevin
they did get the graphics and visuals right, but eh even the fighting system was kind of stale to me felt like the batman games

tom
they all feel like batman

kevin
hit like 1-2 buttons over and over

tom
batman invented the fighting style that 90% of games use

kevin
which drives me crazy bc i hate it lol

tom
nobody ever really credits batman with that lol
those games were revolutionary in that way

kevin
one button smashing with a directional counter

tom
and they were fuckin mad fun

kevin
yeah they were really dope when they first dropped but its overdone at this point

tom
yeah well everything is overdone….. nobody creates anything original anymore its all just regurgitated trash
ps2 was the golden age of original video games

kevin
it’s true and just lazy

tom
even n64 too
after that theyre just riding the wave of good games and re-releasing them to death
like make a fucking new game

kevin
thats why hey say what you will about fortnite they try a whole bunch of different shit and add unique elements
yeah i feel like they ran out of control schemes and shit

tom
yeah even tho they werent relevant until they completely bit off pUBG
but they are totally different
so its acceptable
we were mad hyped and bought Fortnite and it was straight garbage in the beginning lol

kevin
pubg also bit off of poor h1z1 that’s FINALLY getting a console release
they have a battle royale mode with all cars kinda sick lol
yeah i know man i was soooooo hype
that mode at least in the beginning was such trash

tom
yeah ive never played H1Z1 but i guess thats usually the story …. the popular shit is usually a rip off of something unknown that came before it
could be said about pretty much anythign
they’ll just tell you they were “inspired” by it

kevin
I think the story goes with battle royale it was like DOTA or one of the mobas that just a had a mod
