My London Comic Con October 2016 Experience

2016-10-30-18-47-35Another year, another incredible Comic Con experience. I got there obscenely early, at about 8:45am when the doors weren’t even open, but once I got in it was non-stop awesome.

First, I got to meet Kara Eberle, Barbara Dunkleman and Arryn Zech, the voice actresses of Weiss, Yang and Blaike from RWBY! Sadly, Lindsay Jones wasn’t there (Ruby’s voice actress, my favorite character), but since Weiss is my 2nd favorite character, I decided to get a Weiss figurine, and a small poster for Kara to sign. It was really cool meeting the ladies of RWBY🙂

Next, I got to try out Tekken 7, which I didn’t even know was going to be at the convention. The game is so good, even better than I thought it’d be. The graphics are even better to see in real life, the music is fantastic (as usual for Tekken), and the gameplay is very smooth, responsive and satisfying. I put my memory of Lars to the test and fought quite a few different players, all of varying skill levels. The rage arts and special effects are SO cool. I definitely can’t wait to get the game when it comes out next year, maybe even make it my main game.

Speaking of fighting games, I played BlazBlue Central Fiction for the first time too. They weren’t selling the game there, unfortunately, but it is out next week. Although, I am still on the fence about getting it, due to the lack of English dub (I like it for the story and general gameplay character banter). However, I bought the limited edition of Guilty Gear XRD Revelator, for only £50! So I can’t wait to get into that. As for BBCF, I took part in the little tournament they did at the Rice Digital/ Pqube section, and amazingly I won my first 2 matches and got into grand finals! And after a tough final set, I placed 2nd and got some nice simple prizes. I tried my best to use my knowledge of Chronophantasma Extend, and general fighting game fundamentals, to do the best I can, and I’m happy with how I performed.

The spoils of battle!

Finally, I spent a ton of money on different items: got some anime, a manga, 3 figurines, and the GG Revelator limited edition, as I already mentioned. So enough about that, I’m sure you want to see all the pics, so below are the different pics of cosplayers, and below that the loot.

Comic Con, once again, was a fun experience, and I’m glad I was able to go with a plan of attractions in mind, and the money to buy what I wanted (and a little bit more than that too!). Next year should be just as good as well🙂

Honest Front-to-Back Impressions of Infinite Warfare Beta [PS4]

I discuss my feelings on all the features of the Infinite Warfare beta, and how I feel about the game overall.

*FULL WORD COPY BELOW*

(Also found on r/InfiniteWarfare: https://www.reddit.com/r/Infinitewarfare/comments/57ly1v/honest_fronttoback_impressions_of_iw_beta_day_2/)

Hey everyone, I thought i’d try and gather everyone’s thoughts and impressions into a somewhat comprehensible format, and try and bounce ideas off each other. To start with, I’ll make it real easy for you to understand where I’m coming from:

I started with COD4. Played every COD since and got 10th/Master Prestige in MW3, BOII, Ghosts, AW and BO3. MW2, MW3 and AW are my favorites, and Ghosts has a special place in my heart too. I enjoyed BO3 but had issues with the inconsistency of the experience. I did love the concepts, the gameplay and the guns though, and Spectre kept me interested. With that out of the way, here we go.

I’m liking IW so far. MORE than anything, im just damn happy to have a new COD to play. Halo 5 MP didn’t do it for me (but I loved the campaign), I’ve never liked Destiny MP, and Overwatch is only fun with friends. I only mention these games cause they’re the only other main shooters out right now, so no hate to them, I just can’t enjoy their multiplayers. With COD IW, it’s finally a game I know I can enjoy on my own. My main console is Xbox, but like many others I grew up on PS, so I have a PS4 too. This is the first time I’ve played COD on PS since MW2. Now let’s get into the overview:

Gameplay: Make no mistake, this IS Ghosts’ sequel, in so many ways. The pacing, the movement, the announcements and team mate callouts (which im happy to see return!). It’s definitely not for everyone, and the odd mix of Ghosts and BO3, as well as newer elements, will take some getting used to. But since this is the beta, we only have a snapshot of what’s to come. But overall im warming up to it. Like I said, just happy to have COD back.

Guns: Cool enough. Different variety for everyone, as usual. I would NOT try to use the starting assault rifle too much cause it’ll skew your impression of the game. It’s not that powerful and you’ll be outgunned by SMGs and the burst rifle most of the time, until you get the 3rd AR (KBAR), which IMO is really good. The classic weapons are a nice touch, and I can’t wait to see the full extent of the guns. Like most Infinity Ward games, I’m sure there’ll be an OP SMG and an OP burst rifle, haha.

Rigs: Sort of like specialists, but they seem less prevalent when it comes to their super usage, which I’m ok with. Not a fan of only being able to swap head and body; I seriously miss the full customization in AW, but I guess that’s AW’s thing now. Not sure how balanced their abilities all are, but none so far seem dominating or unstoppable, but then again we haven’t seen all the Rigs yet. Rigs lack the personality of specialists, but from the range of voices I hear, we might be able to choose gender and/or voice, which is nice.

General aesthetic: I personally love the space and future theme. I get that a lot of people are tired of it, just as they got tired of the ‘modern warfare’ theme, but as a lover of shooters and sci-fi, I’m all in with this. I think the ability to choose factions is awesome for 2 reasons. 1: It brings back the multiple faction concept of previous COD games, even though the 2 ‘teams’ are just SDF and UNSA. 2: it’ll be cool to see what unique rewards you get per faction, as well as the unique voice overs and so on. It’s things like this which make a new COD game memorable, so it’s a nice addition.

Connectivity: Ok, this is what you were looking for. It is NOT good enough, not yet. When it works, it feels good. The ‘TTK’ (time to kill) is short, mostly. It feels long when you’re shooting someone forever and they don’t die, but you get melted instantly. But it is genuinely short when all shots are on point, AND when the hit detection works too. Having visible health bars is new and weird, but it’s going to make a lot of this way more obvious, so there’s a conversation to be had about that.

It’s easy to point the finger at any one game for this, but honestly I’ve experienced it in every COD since COD4. Latency is always a sour spot, and it’s hit or miss depending on the player. Hell, it might even be possible that the game you like in the series is dependent on whether you had bad latency. It needs to be fine tuned for sure, because a mix of moving hitboxes, somewhat inconsistent hit detection and general lag made BO3 near unplayable for me, but I have high hopes for this game so I don’t want that to happen again. My experiences with AW and Ghosts were stellar, and only on occasion would bad latency lead to a bad experience, but that’s only my personal thoughts. REMEMBER, this is a beta for IW (or demo, or preview or whatever you wanna call it), so it’s not too late for them to put the finishing touches on.

Summary: I like IW so far. Day 1 was rough cause like many others I didn’t even get to play for hours, and even after 1 game I’d be sitting at the menu for minutes at a time. My first COD beta experience was BO3 on Xb1 and tbh that was a damn good beta, so I’m interested to see what IW on XB1 next week will be like. I was nearly put off this game completely by the awful latency and the feeling that im dying after shooting first (what put me off BO3), but I want to like this game and I want to get better at it. There are SO MANY ISSUES that need ironing out, like every other COD game at launch, and I think most people have valid criticisms/concerns about this beta and the overall game. I firmly believe that this game will have a strong launch, and I can’t wait to play it. As someone who loves Infinity Ward, and loved Ghosts, this game is by and large Ghosts 2, even if it has to wear BO3’s jacket. This was kind of long, so if you read all the way, thanks.

My ‘Destiny: Rise of Iron’ First Week Experience

Destiny: Rise of Iron IS HERE, and I got to take the whole week off work to play it (and to rest and relax of course). Luckily, I was able to play with my friend SoRealJosh for most of the time, and we got a lot done together!

Rise of Iron’s adventure awaits.

Rise of Iron’s adventure awaits.

We fought our way through the awesome first half of the story campaign, which concluded with an incredible final boss battle. You need to see all these boss fights for yourself, because Bungie once again delivered on amazing fights. And just like that, it looks like I’m gonna become an Iron Lord in Destiny too! That is, on top of Kell Slayer, Hive Bane, Slayer of Oryx etc.

New Iron Lord, right here. And I got to keep the sword!

New Iron Lord, right here. And I got to keep the sword!

The new social space, the ‘Iron Temple’, is a beautifully rendered, snowy mountain temple, with lounging wolves around the area and everything. The view from the area is awesome, further cementing Destiny as one of the best looking games this gen.

And to be fair, the game has always been a phenomenal visual treat.

free-roam

However, the view from the top is better. That’s right, there’s a climbing puzzle within this social space, where you can climb the tall mountain to near its peak, and receive a quest-related award. Of course, this was motivation enough, but the satisfaction of overcoming what was honestly a very frustrating and obtusely designed climbing puzzle was also part of the reason to get it done. And I was right, the view from up there is immaculate.

Started from the bottom, now I’m here.

Started from the bottom, now I’m here.

Oh, and I jumped off and survived. So there’s that.

Anyway, what is Destiny without loot and objectives? Rise of Iron’s extended story missions and quests had me doing the usual nonsense (no surprise), such as grinding and waiting for RNG to be in my favor. However, the reward was some really cool Exotic weapon missions, in order to get the Khovostov 7G-0X, an Exotic variant of the starter weapon, as well as the much sought-after Gjallarhorn. I also managed to get a really cool ship called the ‘Fatal Vision’, which is definitely one of the most impressive ship designs I’ve seen thus far.

At the moment, I’m trying my best to buff up and get a high enough Light Level in order to complete the new raid: Wrath of the Machine. At the time of typing this, I’m Level 361 with all my best gear on, and considering the final Raid boss is level 380, I’ve got a long way to go. Here’s what I’ve gotten so far from beating the first Raid boss.

destiny-15

The Raid gets really tough within the 2nd & 3rd acts, and it’s going to take time to get the needed Light Level to accomplish the full thing. I am getting there, and each day has been worthwhile, whether I’m doing quests and Strikes, or I’m attempting the new Archon’s Forge mission area. Which is fantastic by the way.

Overall, Rise of Iron has been an incredibly fun experience. From the great and highly cinematic story missions, to the new quests and objectives, this expansion feels like a worthy sequel to The Taken King. I wonder what’s next?

SFV CPU Fights Are Pretty Legit!

SHAREfactory™_20160918232922I’ve halted my netplay battles in order to focus on pure matchup experience, and surprisingly the CPU in Training Mode has been giving me amazing fights! I fight the characters I have trouble with, in order to better develop my play against them, and you’re gonna see some stuff that looks like it’s right out of a real match! This really gets me excited for VS CPU mode. Enjoy🙂
