Top 6 E3 Games, Day 3!

I must say, this year’s E3 is beyond anything I could have expected. Title after title, trailer after trailer, my wallet has emptied itself and none of the games are in my possession. I might have to clone myself in order to enjoy these amazing works of art that were bought into our lives. Day 3 has left me stunned just like the previous two days with an eagerness to game out.

Here are My Top 6 games of Day 3, E3 2018:

1.  The game that many Nintendo lovers have been waiting for since the Switch‘s release has finally been announced. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be coming to the Switch and better than ever. From my understanding every character that you could possibly remember from previous versions will be introduced to this all new but different game. I really like how they thought outside of the box to allow ‘stage picking’ before ‘character picking.’ It will add more of a challenge when competing against a foe or friend. I also enjoy the new toy poodle who makes its random appearances as other dogs before it.

2.  There is nothing more to say than HURRY UP. Pokémon Let’s Go! Pikachu and Eevee will be the reason for me finally getting a Switch. I, part of the rare few, enjoy the heck out of Pokémon GO! and am super excited that it will be compatible to the new game. I currently use a Pokémon GO! Plus, but when November comes around will be trading it in for the Poké Ball Plus. With these beautiful graphics, the games we all know and love have been completely overhauled but with its classic feel.

3.  I am no stranger to the Battle Royal of Fortnite. I used to play it frequently, almost every day, during the winter when the work season was slow. Now knowing it is on the Switch makes things very exciting. One question though, do I really need to create a new account?

4.  When I began to watch this trailer, I must admit it was not too exciting. Within seconds I was proved wrong. The Quiet Man looks crazy good. My first thoughts, a vigilante who is deaf but uses his imperfection as a source of fuel. Sort of like “Daredevil.”

5.  I do not own a VR system but after watching this I might need one. Transference is a horror escape game. I am actually a big fan of these types of games and have played many on the PC. If they can create a non-VR version of the game I would get it in a heartbeat.

6.  Anthem, another Destiny play-alike. The difference, flying mechanical suits. The game has your standard features like open world looting, powerful abilities, team play, insane weapons and has to be one of the best looking games so far.

Top 6 E3 Games, Day 2!

That action continues as Day 2 of E3 impress its audience with their lineup. Trailers, gameplay, small walkthroughs, oh my! I cannot believe how amazing this years conference is and it is only halfway through. Some big titles I was waiting for were announced and other titles that I cannot wait to get my hands on. I just wish there were more release dates but I can live with just a video for now. But there are certain games that I think are must have.

Here are My Top 6 games of Day 2, E3 2018: 

1.  When I think of Star Fox in Starlink: Battle for Atlas, it takes me back to the old days when I was child. I can remember having the SNES (Super Nintendo Entertainment System) controller in my hand and my eyes glued to the screen. It was a great being able to fly around and shoot lasers. It was also annoying and difficult to be honest. Anyway this one is perfect for Star Fox to make an appearance in. At least now the starfighter looks like an actual ship.

2.  Back in 2013, Naughty Dog came out with one of their best games yet, The Last of Us. After a long 5 years later we finally have something to look forward too. A new edition that amazing game, that I played the heck out of when it released, The Last of Us, Part IIThe reveal trailer provides a glimpse of the games concept, its amazing graphics, a small story preview, and overall a great introduction to the game. I want it NOW!

3.  I must admit, trippy games call my attention. This one even more than I thought it would. Picture this – time-bending, slow-motion, supernatural enemies, walls shifting, characters floating. If this game does not speak interesting, then I have no clue what does. It is like the movie Inception except your not Leonardo DiCaprio but Jesse Faden, the director of the “Bureau of Control.

4.  Walking the path of a samurai isn’t an easy one. In the gameplay debut of Ghosts of Tsushima we release that this is true. A noble man in 1274 risking his life for the sake of a monk only to go against a friend. This graphically beautiful game with “deadly … fighting techniques” takes place on the island of Tsushima in Japan. Take a trip back in time and become a warrior.

5.  I have little words for this game. It looks amazing, story is a bit confusing right now, detail is incredible and it involves a lot of walking. But I guess Daryl (from The Walking Dead) is use to that. This time he is doing it in Death Stranding.

6.  What can I say, it is your friendly neighborhood Marvel’s Spider-Man! This time he is back and from I can see trained by Mr. Bruce Wayne himself. (not literally) The gameplay reminds me of Batman: Arkham Knight with a somewhat better feel to it and upgraded visuals. I love it!

EXTRA EXCITEMENT!

Kingdom Hearts III, with PIRATES! Yesterday we previewed Frozen. Today Pirates of the Caribbean! I do not think I can handle much more of this awesomeness!

CHECK IT OUT!

Top 6 E3 Games, Day 1!

With E3 finally here the gaming world has been filled with excitement. The Electronic Entertainment Expo have truly outdone themselves this year and brought us more quality content than ever before. With technology increasing and creative minds developing, games are being created on a completely different level than those beautiful pixel days. I still remember how amazing I thought PlayStation 1 games looked. As a child they were so ‘cool’ that nothing could compare. Twenty something years late I have a whole new definition of ‘cool.’

Here are My Top 6 games of Day 1, E3 2018:

1.  Now this will be hard to believe, but I was never a big fan of Halo. I might have played one game and never finished it. With that being said I have no real opinion on the game or its series. But after seeing the trailer for HALO: Infinite I am tempted to give it another shot. Check out why!

2. Next up, Gear of War 5. This game is nostalgic for me. This was one of the games that became sort of pillar in a very important friendship of mine. When I was in high school, after we were let out of the building, one of my best friends and I would spend hours playing it at his home. For that reason I love this brand and its name. Besides that, it is an awesome game to play and now with even better graphics to back it.

3.  Dying light 2. There really is not much to say expect, If you like to be scared while playing a game then here you go. I still remember playing the first part. When I got into the game it was nothing that the trailer or other videos could have prepared me for. Especially playing in the dark at night when the game switches from daylight to night time. From what I can see part two is going to be even scarier!

4.  If there was one game that I truly enjoyed playing with a squad, it was The Division. Unfortunately, I stopped playing it because after a while it became repetitive and a bit boring. Being a fan of the game by default I will be getting the second part of it. But The Division 2 looks even better than I thought it would with what seems to better world. I cannot wait to play it!

5.  This game I did not expect to see at all. At first it seemed to be just another anime game but I was wrong. So wrong. At first it reminded me of a game called J-Stars Victory Vs+ but then after watching the trailer, I got more of a Tekken cross Street Fighter feel. Either way the developers must of had fun creating this one because Jump Force looks seriously good.

6.  After 5 years of waiting I, or we the fans, have been given a release date for the anticipated to be game of the year, Kingdom Hearts III. On January 29, 2019 we will finally be able to play the game that many of us have been waiting for. I personally cannot wait for these next six months to pass by so I can ‘build a snowman’ with Olaf.

 

Mall – Eat – Game!

May 21, 2018 

I have the day off. What to do? What to do? 

As usual I had to move my car resulting in my eyes opening at 7 in morning. With no rush or need to do a thing I laid back in bed for about a half an hour playing my new favorite mobile game, Dragon Ball Legends. As I was trying to understand the game further I realized that so much more could be done than originally thought. I can power up my characters beyond their normal amount, way beyond it. Typical Dragon Ball logic. I like how the creators incorporated that aspect into the game.

I set an alarm for 10am and went back to sleep. I must have been really tired because I slept through it until 11:30. As comfortable as I was my plans were a bit ruined. I wanted to start by going to the park for a run but I skipped it to make up for time. I went right to house work. I washed clothes, straightened up a bit and put together some shoes that do not fit for either the trash or Good Will 

Afterwards I had a late breakfast which was basically a snack, a small pastry. Then started a new page of writing which was released yesterday. It is about an amazing commencement speech by Ben Nemtin that he gave at the University of Utah. It really spoke words to me, I cried. It was inspiring, motivating, and well put. Perfect for the new Motivation page.  

Can I get enough? Probably not. 

The plan was to stay in an enjoy some me time but I was torn. I am so used to being out, that being in gets boring. It is probably the reason why I am so tired all the time. My body cannot handle the activity but I push through anyway.  

My girlfriend came over around 2:30pm ready to head out. I was nowhere near ready to do anything. I knew she would be by soon but it happened to soon. She has been taking advantage of my days off which I appreciate. When I work, I work, so seeing her can be difficult. Within minutes I got ready and we headed out. 

Around 4pm we pulled in the parking lot of the closest mall to me. I wanted to go to Express to see the inventory. They had nice blazers online that I wanted to try on. After getting arms through a few, I found the perfect fit. I would have bought it too but the prices were out of my budget and there were no sales on them. Have to check back in a week or so. I also wanted to get new work shoes but the mall did not have what I needed. My girlfriend on the other hand, bought new stud earrings to pair up with her old ones. They took a while to find but she was happy.  

Since all I had to eat was a pastry it was time for something a bit meatier. The mall we went to is a favorite of mine for one reason, Chick-fil-A. It is right there as you walk and never has a line during the time I go. The order got a bit crazy for one person. I ordered a spicy chicken deluxe sandwich, chicken nuggets with their sweet barbeque sauce, waffle fries and a cookies and cream milkshake. It was a feast meant for a king. My lady had Haagen-Dasz ice cream. We were two different pages.  

Back home to see the baby.  

We left the mall at 5:30pm. With traffic I figured a half hour would be a good amount of time for the drive. Even though it was packed bumper to bumper it moved smoothly. Unfortunately, the holdup was due to a car accident. Someone had driven off of the road into a tree filled ditch. The damage was extensive. I hope they made out in one piece.  

By 6:30 I was ready once again to head out. It is training night so to the office I went. The session was went great. I did get some backlash for missing a few days but it was well deserved. How can I grow a business if I’m not preparing properly? I took a lot from tonight and appreciate everyone in my corner. 

Before heading home I made a stop at Dunkin’ Donuts. Normally I would get something before getting to the office but I did not have enough time to do so. Besides it ended being a chilly night. I had no jacket, my stomach was rumbling and I had a very disappointing cup of coffee the other day, so why not.  

Game on!  

I walked through the door of my room by 10pm ripping off my shirt and pants. I wanted nothing more than to get comfortable. I love dressing in business attire but sometimes it can be to restricting. I sat at desk with my coffee and donut in hand enjoying the late-night evils. To finish off on a good note, I jumped on Call of Duty: World at War with my Texas buddy. Then we switched over to join my best friend as he streamedIt was a great night.  

P.S. 

I started to take a multi-vitamin/multi-mineral for my fruit and vegetable deficiency. Seems to be good. Also, inside joke, Mr. Coffee Pot was amazing! 

Physically Drained, Beautiful Game!

May 17, 2018

Who knew the day would turn out like this?

I have a long day but I am prepared for it. I have mentality gotten myself ready to be out all day. I even woke up at 7:30 with the intent to start off on the right side of the bed. But then I saw it, a text message from 6:57 this morning:

“Woke up super duper sick. Sicker than past two days. I have to go to the doctor. Cancelling my shifts for today.”

The lady I work with was officially sick. She has been fighting it. Drinking tea, lemon and ginger, Dayquil and Nyquil but the common cold got the best of her. Yesterday she woke up not feeling well and today even worse. For her to see a doctor it must have gotten bad.

Well there goes that.

I went back to sleep since it was early and there was no reason to be up. Honestly, I needed to caught up with some Zzz. I have not been right for a few days so my mission is to sleep as much as possible. Reawake around 11:30 feeling in tip top shape. My body did not ache, my eyes were not heavy, and my stomach growling. But before starting anything I had to play it. Before I went to sleep I received a notification about a new game release for the phone. I forgot that my email was listed for updates. Today was the day! I have been waiting for a while now so I was excited.

The game is called Dragon Ball Legends! I set it to download right before I laid my head to rest. As soon as I woke up I rolled over on my side to grab my phone. Turned it on, unlocked it and clicked on the game. The moment I have been waiting for! START! I played it for an hour and had a blast. For the first day of release it was remarkably well done. I cannot wait for an update and to see how far they can go with it.

Time for a late breakfast. 

It was already past 12 but I did not want anything heavy in my stomach. I thought about lunch but then decided to stick with breakfast. Frosted Flakes. While eating I sent a live stream of Fortnite from YouTube to the Chromecast Ultra. There is a female gamer from Japan that plays the heck out of the game. Her Twitter name is Homitaso, that is all I know besides her gaming channel ほみこ.  Besides watching the renowned Ninja, I learn a lot of tactics from her especially since she plays on the same platform I do, PS4.

Once her stream finished I set DashieGames to play on the big screen. A few minutes in, I paused it to wash a load of clothes. Back in front of the TV as it played. It streamed in the background as I set up my posts for tomorrow. Then the really fun part. I ordered an EVGA 1,000 watt power supply from Amazon 2 days ago. I received it yesterday and was very surprised at the speediness of the delivery. I have not opened it to test it out but it will be used very soon. Hopefully by the end of the month. I am in the gathering phase.

After everything was said and done I took a nap for a half an hour, 3 – 3:30pm. 

All of a sudden, I was hit with the need to lay down. It was as if all the energy in my body was drained from head to toe. I put up a good fight not to go down but lost in the end. I would have slept longer if it was not for a pretty funny text message from my Texas buddy. Let’s just say he confused ‘Clay’ with ‘Ray’ in his contacts and I went along with it.  20180518_175620

Now I was hungry.

Still low on energy I decided to stuff my face. I made myself a plate of pasta with meatballs. To top it off right a nice spread of mozzarella cheese. Of course, I had to watch Blindspot while I ate. Episode 2! I dreamt about this show. I am committed to it like a bad drug addiction. If I did not have to leave, the TV would have been playing it all night.

I took a shower and left around 7:45pm. I took advantage of today to its fullest doing nothing important so I figured getting out the house was the least I could do. What better way than to spend the night with the person who you connect with in every way. I got to my girlfriend’s house by 8:10, we had dinner together and set up in the living room to watch our new favorite show “The Good Doctor.”
