WWE 2K15: Ruthless Mehtensity

cenaface

I know there were last gen versions of this game but I will be talking entirely about my experiences on the PS4.  This was the digital pre-order and was a release day version.

So where to start. I’m a huge wrestling fan and have been playing wrestling related games since maybe 1989 or even 1986 if you count the NES Pro Wrestling title.  There’s always a much needed balance between simulation and action that can sometimes lead to unbalanced game concepts.  Frankly, one of my favorite games was either N64 No Mercy or N64 Wrestlemania 2000.  The amount of CAW (Create a Wrestler) options and story mode alternatives made the replayability extremely high.  The actual gameplay was simple but addicting in that you got all the signature moves of your favorite star.  So how could the next/current gen console games improve on that?

Weekend Fun

With so many games in my library it has been hard to stick to one and stream it consistently.  I really want to get back to Don’t Starve and see how large I can make my home base.  I also am loving going back and playing some retro games like Lufia 2, Bubble Bobble, and so many other great NES/SNES games.  I also really enjoyed playing some BF3 again with my poppa. I think it’s time to schedule some games for certain nights and leave one day up for a random game.

As for DayZ, I am really hoping for some new content like DayZ Fusion and Breaking Point. I would love to have more people team up with me but it seems like most of us have moved on to other games.

Then there was Neverwinter…

…well I like the game but don’t want to get sucked into the MMORPG quicksand.  I will pick it up from time to time, but the game hasn’t even fully released so I think I will have time to explore this and maybe even some Guild Wars 2 once again.

Let me know what directions you would like to see me go and any strengths or weaknesses of my channel.  I am not offended by criticism and welcome it to make my channel grow.

Best,

So who would buy a Big D shirt?

Let me know what you think a shirt for my channel should have.

Design Stream

I am thinking about doing a stream tonight in which I work on a few layout and channel logo features.  Would anyone be interested in seeing how to make some graphics and use Photoshop?

Time to dust off this game.  

WWE ’13 Friday Night Frenzy: The Big D versus Randy Orton

How many RKO’s can I take? Watch and see.

Day 2 of Rocksmith. The fans love me.

So as a person who was a teenager in the 1990’s, I loved playing rock music.  I have let my guitar skills slide considerably and had some fun with Guitar Hero in the past, but there was something missing.  Rocksmith has provided that missing element– the bloody guitar.

Though I was never formally trained (I taught myself with the help of my dad from time to time) I still had a blast learning songs and even performing here and there in college.  I get the sense that Rocksmith has all the elements to teach while playing that most instruction can’t handle.  It’s pretty generous and will only start dropping phrase levels if you really muck it up.

So shine up your leather codpiece and get the Aqua Net spraying.  The Big D is ready to rock.

Sword of the Stars: The Pit (Initial Thoughts)

I have to say that I have really been drawn to some new games that feel old.  Don’t Starve and Sword of the Stars: The Pit, to name a few.  Here is the layout I have temporarily thrown together.  It is a heartless game that has no pity for the weak gamer.  The real question is, why am I playing it then?

I start off as Wilson to survive a very harsh winter.
