The only games that matter

I am a gamer, always have been. Since the Xbox came out I have been playing that system. In my personal opinion I hate Microsoft but love their products such as Xbox. Even though I only connect to online to buy DLC then I go offline since I think it’s overrated and for other reasons I cannot state. I also have two computers that I can play high end PC games on, but I only play a few. So, for those reasons, I will name some of the only games that truly matter in recent years. And yes,  I have played PS3 and even owned one, but did not really like what they were trying to do.

Every single BioShock game is a masterpiece of gaming. Yes even BioShock 2 especially with the Minerva’s Den add on. BioShock and BioShock Infinite are pretty even, since saying one is better would be incredibly stupid with games of their caliber. Those two games are so good they do not even need a Multiplayer mode. Even though BioShock 2 has one of the most underrated multiplayer modes, I only played online to try it and it was awesome.

All of the Mass Effect games. Do not even mention the ending at all. Grow up, it was a year ago and it has deeper meanings to it. Only people like me seem to grasp the concept of the conspiracy theory in the endings. For example do you honestly think Control, Synthesis, and Refusal are good choices? Refusal is just stupid, Control is allowing a new galactic wide order over everyone, and Synthesis is allowing us to become changed slaves to a new order. Destroy gains all the civilizations freedom to choose what they want by destroying their true enemy. The writers try to make the Reapers appear good, when in fact that is what they want to think. The Reapers being good is wrong, for example they control people’s minds and make them kill people and so many other things. Why would you want something such as them alive?

Pretty much every Halo game out there. I know all the Sony fan boys will try to say “well Killzone is better.” Last I checked Killzone can not keep people playing and Halo is in a war with COD (Since DICE seems to have failed on the Battlefield and Medal of Honor series).  Sony fan boys, here’s a message to all of you haters: you really do not know what you’re missing.

Crysis games on the PC. The graphics are one thing, game play, story, and oh yeah it’s actually good. Nuff said.

DICE=Biggest Fail Ever. I mean come on false advertising big time, bad story, boring modes, it was decent on PC but on consoles I’d give it about a 2.5/10.

This is the game I am most looking forward to in the post. First off, it’s an original idea. That’s something people are scared to do. Saints Row games are already amazing games. I mean, come on if you think this is a garbage franchise you must be a GTA fan boy (Despite those games are good too.)

Now since I got that off my chest I will give Microsoft a message about always online DRM. I’m always Offline DRM. That is trademark Mitch Walters Style.

My Take On Digital Games [RGN User Blog]

It’s a new format. But with new formats comes with a sense of unfamiliarity, even fear. People are tactile by nature so having things in our hands gives us a sense of comfort. Which is why physical software games are still around despite digital having being readily available at your fingertips for some time. However this sense of intangibility with our games still makes people hesitant, which is why credit should be given to companies like Sony for making console games free with a subscription to Playstation Plus.

Sure, other services provide provide similar incentives but not to the extent Sony has done. By making popular games like Demon’s Souls and DarkSiders free, they’re actually demonstrating the convenience and ease of access of the digital format. It’s also a great choice for  console owners who can’t always purchase the latest game in stores, so 50 dollars a *year* for new, free games a month is a no-brainer. this has been proven by the PC community that Digital access to games is the way of the future.

But just not yet, as long as there is a demand for retail releases of games, and having options is never a bad thing, so why rush it?

Disturbing Image: Brutal The Last of Us Decapitation Gameplay

The following animated image may be found disturbing by some viewers and pictures two humans fighting for survival against a zombie-like reminisce of mankind’s legacy and haunting past in the story-driven epic The Last of Us coming exclusively to PlayStation 3 worldwide by Naughty Dog and Sony Computer Entertainment June 14, 2013.

The main character has a promise to a friend that forces him to protect a young woman who must now live through a rough life as she bears witness to the violent struggle life has become while fighting alongside in order to survive.

Tristans Twisted World: Injustice: Gods Among Us Demo Impressions

As we all know NetherRealm Studios is back and brings us there new DC fighting game. This time around it is taking a interactive tone with the maps you fight on. You can fight opponents by using a really similar combat system to other games NetherRealm has made but with a better flow system.

The flow depended on what characters I played as in the demo. For example when I played as Batman and Wonder Woman combat was much easier even on hard mode, but when I played as Lex Luther I noticed he was slower and the flow on hard mode and higher was harder. It does not ruin game play though since Lex did have stronger attacks. The final battle in the demo fighting  a character like Doomsday was a good step since I always have enjoyed a latter system.

Using the the environment to toss enemies around such as tossing them in front of a train seems to be cool but for me seems like they do not lose much health. It did not bother me but really seemed like just a long cut scene. The overall of this demo for me makes me excited to get my hands on this game.

Tristans Twisted World: The Walking Dead Survival Instinct is not that bad

Over the years I have played many games, both good and bad but when I heard since this game was awful I stayed away from it. Yesterday I got some time with the PS3 version game and was actually surprised it was not that bad. It consist of what every zombie game has; just fighting zombies.

This makes me think people saw one review then everyone started copying each other and flipping out for now reason thinking this game is awful. I also think this game was never given a proper chance due to the TellTale Games The Walking Dead. That game is one of the best games of all time already so this to go up against that probably has a lot to do with backlash, with people comparing the two.

After playing the title with hands-on experience, I’ve decided I will soon get the title to play through it because it was just a very fun game similar to Dead Island and Call of Duty Zombies in gameplay aspects, alluring me to see for myself what many have been missing out on.

Tristans Twisted World: BioShock Infinite is racist and ruins the christian way…..wait what?

There has been some backlash to this amazing game for some reasons involving racism and the apparent Christian evil. People have taken this out of context in many different ways it is kinda sad. Before you jump the bullet I would like to explain myself a bit here to why I am saying this to you. It is a clarification as I have had experiences with these things in real life. I also am very good at history and know a lot about what was going in the year 1912.

Racism: BioShock Infinite has some racist elements yes. But the fact is that the time period it was in and you could tell some of these are from the south from there accents. The African American people has Americans should know where treated badly by many people from both the north and south. They were believed to be beneath them which in my personal opinion is not true. Ken Levine is and was not being racist it is realistic due to the time but the Prophets word does push it more so in some senses.

Christian: Father Comstock may be from the Christian way of life but that is not what he is spreading at all. He is using his own personal beliefs to make people think that certain things are right. True Christian’s believe all people are equal no matter if racism is brought in it is not true. Stop reading right there if you think I do not know what I am talking I have been off and on in the Christian way of life so I know what I am talking about. Christian people love everyone cause Jesus loved everyone no matter what. People sometimes mistake cults like the “KKK” and many other things like “God Hates Gays” which he does not people should read the Bible a little closer before the flip out. Now at the moment no I am not following the path of Christians I am doing my own thing since I declined by baptism for personal reasons. But no the Comstock cult has nothing really to do with Christians cause that is not what it is.

Now if you are still confused please ask questions in the comments or ask me to revise somethings or add feedback is appreciated have a good day.

Black Ops 2 Multiplayer Prestige Not Showing Up

RealGamerNewz has discovered that if you log into PlayStation Network today 3/29/2013 some of you may find that your friends’ Prestige is not showing up underneath their level even though it will show up on their screen at their houses. The player icon which is normally representing which Prestige the player is will also have the wrong icon.

This is not happening to 100% of the friends list but parts of it. This is a message out to Treyarch hoping that they can fix this. Take a listen to the following podcast where we describe how to recreate the glitch / error in hopes that the development team will be able to take this information and fix the problem.
