But for now we’re taking our holiday days off to relax, recoup, and get ready for 2016. Til then, Merry Christmas!

 

 

Sweet Chirstmas Gift Guide – Fallout 4

 

You know I been playing Fallout 4 pretty heavily since it’s release, so much so that just when I think I got an handle on the game they introduce and new element, faction, story line, side quest, character, event, enemy, or all of the above that makes me fall in love with the title all over again. With seemingly endless places to explore, people to meet (and or frag), and sweet, sweet, items to collect; Fallout 4 is not a game- it’s the game of the year. If they don’t have this game and you got no idea what to get for a gamer, then by all means get this, it is a lock trust me.

 

 

 

Sweet Christmas Gift Guide – Batman: Arkham Knight

 

The Batman Arkham series had a good run for very good reasons: combat and stealth game play, puzzle solving elements, excellent characters in the Batman universe, and finally a superhero game that doesn’t suck (that one in particular). However the swan song of the series, Batman: Arkham Knight, pulls all the stops as it opens up Gotham entire to the player. To stop Scarecrow and his new army, led by the mysterious Arkham Knight; Batman must drive, glide, fight, solve, and hunt down in every corner of the city to save the day. Even then it might not be enough save himself. So if you got a DC fanatic in the neighborhood and for some reason hasn’t picked up this end to all ender be a bro today and leave it under the tree for them.

 

 

 

Sweet Christmas Gift Guide – Star Wars Battlefront

 

Star Wars – The Force Awakens was amazing, and everyone knows it! But sadly now the adventure is over and we have to go back to our daily lives – or we? Thanks the power of Star Wars Battlefront we can join the conflict between the determined rebels and the brutal Empire. SWB is the most impressive looking game of the series by far, I swear some moments feel like I just got dropped into Hoth right then and there. And facing down a AT-ST (pronounced -“at~sssssit”) is downright intimidating with these now visuals. Now most battles do take place on the original movies (ep 4, 5, & 6) but owning this title also allows you to fight a battle on Jakku, that’s right, the same planet where the newest movie starts. Players have the added pleasure of knowing their battle helps with the newest Star Wars lore. I would say buy this game for all lovers of Star Wars, but that everyone these days so let the force guide you on this one.

Movie Review: Star Wars – The Force Awakens

 

It’s good, not Jar-Jar Binks good, but know, it does alright…

Ok, ok… And now how we really feel about the movie.

Sweet Christmas Gift Guide – Destiny: The Taken King (Year 2)

 

Destiny talk? On this site? NO WAY? Yes, Yes, I know I am the Destiny fanboi, but seriously people now is the time to play this game. Despite my best efforts some people still hated this game for one reason or the another. If it was up to me I would ignore those people and keep doing what I’m doing. Bungie’s smarter than me however and took account of all the complaints from the nay-says out there about the game’s failings. When ‘The Taken King’ year two patch came out for Destiny it was like meeting an old friend for the first time all over again. Everything was the same, but better. Items were dynamic and fresh, but familiar. Quests were challenging and inventive, but still rooted in their core game play. And even when I finished the main story of the Taken King, that’s when the Year 2 patch really opened up! So yeah, the first year of Destiny wasn’t perfect but it was still worth the money I spend on it; Year 2, yeah, that’s perfect, and they only can go up from here.
