XBox One – The Nasty Update

XBOXOne1

What You Can’t Do:

Play games unless you connect to the internet once every 24 hours

  • if you are unable to connect, your games will not function at all
  • Yes, that includes single player games

Can’t disconnect the Kinect Sensor
You can’t Lend games
You can’t Rent Games

You can’t Trade games freely

  • Only pre-approved retailers can accept trade-ins
  • No independent game shops
  • Less value for your trade-ins since there is less shops which leads to less competition

You can’t Sell your games freely

  • In order to sell a game to someomne you must have been friends with them for over 30 days
  • The game is then locked to that user forever
  • They will not be able to see it afterwards

Seems like Microsoft really wants to lock you in, and this is how they are doing it, now it seems that the games you buy aren’t your to do with as you please. Its like buying a car but you can’t do anything with it except sell it back to the dealer. I will keep my XBox 360 for a little while until they change their stupid policies.

Halo 4 – Forward Unto Dawn

“Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn” is a live-action digital series that takes fans back to the terrifying beginning of the Human/Covenant war, when the Master Chief inspired a young cadet who would eventually become a leader aboard the UNSC’s greatest vessel: the UNSC Infinity.

Microsoft have finally gotten their act together and put a live action series into motion, Halo fans are going to go nuts and I’m one of them. A series leading up to the release of Halo 4 takes place at the UNSC military academy, as cadets train to take on a war in the outer colonial planets. Master Chief makes an appearance, I can’t wait to see it on October 5th 2012.

Game Trailer – Injustice: Gods Among Us

What if our greatest heroes became our greatest threat?

Now this looks like a fun and simple game, if you are fan of DC Comics, and the Mortal Kombat style of gaming then this game is for you. The footage shows Superman, Batman, Flash, Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, Solomon Grundy and the newly revealed Cyborg and Nightwing clash in environments like Metropolis and the Batcave. Very very cool, I wouldn’t mind playing this game for a little while.

PAC-MAN The Movie

Now this just brought the 80s back, couldn’t games just be this simple. I remembered I was obsessed with this game, trying to get the high score as much as possible. I would spend hours looking at that screen, playing nonstop. Someone just turned this into a movie, its fan bad and I have to say its pretty damn good.

Games Of 2012

The list is long, and it could be longer, these are the games that look so good and I have no time to play them. These are just the ones on XBox 360 & PS3 not including whats coming out on PC. Right now at the top of my list is Diablo III and the expansion for StarCraft but other normal games are below and they look pretty good.

  • Devil May Cry
  • Prey 2
  • Mass Effect 3
  • Overstrike
  • Halo 4
  • Starhawk
  • Borderlands 2
  • Grand Theft Auto 5

Street Fighter Stop Motion – Ryu VS Ken

The last few games of Street Fighter have been amazing and I hope that they come out with an animation soon, I never get tired of the Streetfighter Saga. Now this stop motion animation is a work of art, it looks so damn good and surprisingly this all took two days and was done with a Nikon D5100 with very little special effects.

Gears of War Edition XBox 360

GoWXbox3601_01

Gears of War 3 is coming out very soon and I can’t wait to play it, this is a special edition XBox 360 that will be available in September. With the 320 GB Hard Drive and Two Controllers as well as Gears of War 3 Game. If I didn’t already have an XBox 360 I would honestly get it, even though the new XBox 360 or what ever iteration of the console is coming out at the end of 2012.

DC Universe: Fractured Future

DC Universe Online is a game I am very much looking forward to and this trailer gives an interesting story. If I didn’t know it was a game I would think that its a movie from this trailer. I was shocked to see who these characters were as the trailer played out. Its going to be an awesome video game, I want to play out a lot of these characters. I bought the special edition version for the PS3 which comes with a cool Batman Model.

2010 Games in Human History

2010GamesTimelineShort

Human history based on the top games of 2010, it really shows where we are planning on going. From “a long time ago” to the distant, unknown future of 2552. Below you’ll find a timeline of some of last year’s biggest games, showing where in humanity’s grand story they fit in. When looking at this list I’m really disappointed in myself, I haven’t finished one game of the games that I have purchased for 2010 which is a disaster, and I only picked up a few games. 2011 will be the year I finish the games I bought in 2010, I will play until my hands go numb!

Pagani Zonda Cinque vs. Lamborghini Murcielago LP640

If this doesn’t get your blood boiling, I don’t know what will! This is the definition of hot pursuit, Electronic Arts have taken to beautiful machines for a rea live Hot Pursuit, the live action version of Need for Speed Hot Pursuit. Whoever is driving that Pagani Zonda has skill, he is drifting around corners in the mountain I would be freaked out in a VW Beetle.
