I try my hand at the new Madden 15 for Xbox One. The controls are smoother and I like the gamecalling flow that they’ve adopted. My only complaint is there’s no variety in Madden games thanks to the monopoly on sports games. It just seems like the same game with more polish and an updated roster. Here’s a peek at my Twitch Stream in the video below.
I somehow gathered up a small militia in the ARMA 3 co-op server and we discover a weapons cache location on the map. We decide to strike to shore up the armory of our newfound team.
This is Kevo playing through the quest, “A Mysterious Murder” in Divinity: Original Sin. After finally finding the location to Evelyn’s lair, the party decides to investigate. Divinity: Original Sin is the RPG I’ve been looking for, it’s what Diablo 3 could have been. Besides the quirky quest instructions, this game is a model for future role playing games. Not only does it incorporate all of the features RPG fans have come to love, it does them with style and humor. It’s amazing that this game started with a kickstarter fund. If you ask me, indie devs have a new avenue to bring their ideas to life and the game industry is better for it.
This is me with a new survivor I met up with. We decided to take the town of Nonha on our way to Berenzino. We met more survivors who decided to shoot first and ask questions later. We were happy to oblige.
Well I’m on survivor #3 in DayZ, but this was an interesting story of karma. I didn’t record any video so I’ll make this quick. I was in Svetlo and I’d finally gotten kitted up. I was so kitted up that I was hesitant to log back into DayZ to play because I wanted to enjoy my accomplishment of going from near death survivor in the middle of no where to being armed with supplies and weapons in a major city.
I logged in anyway thinking that if I die, I’ll just respawn and try again, I’ve come to grips with the possibility of having to respawn because I heard it happens often. So I decided to loot this tall building in Svetlo and once I entered the second floor I could hear footsteps behind me. I decided to close the door and aim at the doorway in case someone entered. Last time I trusted someone I was knocked unconcious while I was bandaging up. I wasn’t about to allow this to happen again.
After a while of no action, I decided to venture out the door and go further up the stairs for a better vantage point. As I excited the room, mere seconds later someone almost past me to enter the room. I whirled around and let out a shot. In DayZ, gunshots are rare to hear because they attract zombies so when I shot my SKS it seemed like the whole town heard it. I heard gunshots in the distance and guessed that they thought someone was shooting at them. The player I shot at definitely noticed it, he didn’t exit the room, in fact he closed the door and tried to wait me out.
I sat there on the stairs aiming down my gun sights for seemed like 2 minutes then the door slowly opened, when he peeked around the corner I opened fire. He fell instantly, I didn’t move thinking back up was coming any minute. When they didn’t come I looted what I could from his body and logged out. I’m a newb, I wasn’t taking any chances.
My victory didn’t last long, when I logged back in to check what I’d looted from the fallen player, I discovered that I’d shot up all the gear I could have used. Everything was ruined. I was, however, able to save the sniper rifle he was carrying so I equipped that and exited the room. When I got to the first floor I encountered another player. I was feeling bad about killing that other player unprovoked so I tried to strike up a truce. “I’m friendly” I yelled at the player and walk to the top floor to demonstrate I meant no harm. I waited to see if he would exit, instead he followed me to the top floor, uttered “Fuck You” and shot me in the head. RIP survivor #3.
With it’s slick interface and high tech combat tools, Ubisoft has effectively gotten me back into the Ghost Recon franchise. Being a free to play mmo doesn’t hurt although I fear microtransactions will be in my future if I expect to be competitive past the double digit levels. The controls are as snappy and intuitive as I needed them to be. I didn’t experience any bugs in the game either, I mean at all. Ubisoft clearly did their homework with this game. Here’s a highlight video of me rallying my impromptu squad to victory with full communication as the game should be played.
