Let’s Play: Titanfall – Last Titan Standing [Xbox 360]

The Titanfall DLC maps are now free after a year so I decided to get back into it this weekend. Even though none of the new maps appear in this let’s play, I play the Last Titan Standing mode and comment on the game in general. Give it a watch and drop a like, comment and provide feedback!

-Voice of JST- #38: DOA5 Costumes Banned From Tournaments?

In this episode, I discuss how I feel about the decision of the DOA community to ‘soft ban’ certain costumes from being used in DOA tournaments, in order to improve the game’s “public image”. I give balanced views of the decision and explain the intended benefit of this decision, but also my personal gripes with it and why it’s ultimately very silly. Let me know your thoughts by commenting on this blog post, the youtube vid or wherever you see this posted.

Voice Of JST #37: Is Winning The Only Thing That Matters?

It’s been quite a while since I’ve done a Voice of JST, but I decided to come back with a topic that had been on my mind for a while. I discuss the aspect of winning and achieving things in games and how without it, it’s hard to feel motivated to stick with games. Let me know what you think of my talk and be sure to share your thoughts too in the comments.

I Received A Gift! New Headset From My Amazon Wish List!

2015-02-20 11.58.13To my complete surprise and joy, I was gifted something that was on my Amazon Wish List! I got the headset you see in the above picture, one I’ve wanted for a while. It was gifted to me by none other than this really cool dude I know on Twitter, @FGFatacon. I was really overwhelmed that he’d buy this for me, especially since I’ve needed a new PC headset for years. I wish there was some way I could repay him! Maybe one day. Still, I really want to thank Fatacon for the gesture. For a while I felt like there were no surprises in my life and things were just really dreary. This was a much-needed boost. Thanks man =] And hey, if you wanna help me out and get a potential shoutout, you can donate/gift me to if you want. Links are down below.

I don’t normally do this, but since it’s something I do moderately care about, i thought I’d share it. Obviously most people who follow me know that I’m a game journalist and YouTuber, and I usually upload FGC related content. You also might know that my capture card sucks and I’m not always up to date with games to play/talk about. As such, if you wanna help me you can doante to my Paypal or buy me something on my Amazon wish list.

Any donations/purchases will be announced on my Twitter and maybe tumblr too, to let you guys know. Don’t worry, I won’t bombard my social media pages with links, but every so often I do like to beg, haha. If you want to support all that is JusticeSoulTuna, then consider donating!

Internet Arguments: An Exercise In Futility

1939825_770865032952042_3367443899168101976_nRecently I’m beginning to feel like there’s no real purpose to arguing with people online. Just like when I finally realized I can just mute people on Xbox Live, I’m beginning to lean more towards ignoring people than engaging in any kind of keyboard warrior shouting match. Sure there’s some important conversations to be had, but they have to be done in the right ways. Places like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube are just breeding grounds for ceaseless bickering that has no real goal. And that’s my problem.

I used to think that some kind of logical ultimatum could be reached by talking to people online. I’ve been naive. Fact is, you’ll meet very few people willing to have an actual, logical conversation. Twitter is by far the worst place to try to do so. 140 characters per tweet lacks nuance, and long strings of conversations through tweets are tiring. I learned that the hard way when I first joined Twitter. In the end, it boils down to one person’s opinion versus another person’s.

The rough part too is that sometimes you get in too deep. You’re having these jousting matches with people who, most of the time, you can’t see or hear. Furiously typing away as you try to one-up each other with words. Sometimes the personal investment you put into the argument might get to you, especially if it doesn’t go your way. I remember many occasions where my head would feel dizzy at the sheer ferocity of the argument itself. All to what avail? To either agree to disagree, or be faced with their maddening ignorance? It’s a legitimate waste of life.

I’ll admit, there are some times when you can have a fair and decent debate with someone online, and hey, maybe you’ll learn something too. These worthwhile experiences are few and far between and I could hardly say it’s worth the trouble just to get them. There must be something wrong with us as humans that we feel the incessant need to argue with someone about something they likely have their minds convinced about. It’s a bit of a vice, I know. But honestly these days, I don’t see the point. Arguing with random internet strangers is usually a waste of my time, intelligence and (in extreme cases) emotions. I find my time better spent finding things I enjoy and sharing those, than dedicating any attention to some ignorant fool.

ASM1: A Bigger Nightmare Than The Bal 27?

Asm1Now, don’t get me wrong: the Bal 27 was pretty hard to deal with in its time. But even before the nerf, I never felt like the Bal 27 just stopped me from being able to play the game. Gun fights with it actually felt do-able, as long as you kept your wits about you and had good movement. Honestly though? The ASM1 makes me feel like I never get a chance.

See, people complained about COD Ghosts cause of the ‘time to kill': basically the average time it takes a player to die in a gunfight. In Ghosts, it was roughly a second or two, so really unforgiving, but that’s just it though: nearly every gun could do it. That was Ghosts’ whole meta-game, dying instantly meant you had to be really careful, and personally I enjoyed it. The much more in-your-face, aggressive nature of Advanced Warfare is a whole new pace and adding a longer time to kill meant we could enjoy engagements. However, as well all know, any gun (or guns) that effectively break the rules of the meta have always stood out. COD4’s Ak 47, MW2’s UMP45, MW3 Type 95 (pre-nerf), Black Ops II’s MSMC and so on. I feel like the ASM1 is the next in that series.

I should make it clear that I’m not the type of guy to get mad at gun balance or think that anything should be nerfed most of the time. I love strong features in games, be them top-tier characters or good guns. I don’t even hate the ASM1, I use it myself for ranked matches and sometimes in general matches. I don’t even necessarily think that the ASM1 should be nerfed at all, but the unfortunate truth is that the balance is lop-sided. The AMS1 has the highest damage out of all the SMGs, which in itself isn’t a big deal: the problem is how despite its weaknesses compared to other SMGs, it somehow bypasses all that and wins engagements most of the time. Even against the Bal you have somewhat of a chance, but the ASM1 kills you almost instantly. It feels like I never even get a chance to shoot.

Obviously, there are some factors to consider regarding the AMS1’s dominance. Players could be much better now than the first few months of the game, there can be connection issues, and sometimes people get clean shots. However the sheer consistency of the gun makes it hard to think any of those are the real issue. Sometimes it IS the gun and not just random factors.

I’m sure Sledgehammer Games is considering what to do with the ASM1 (and probably game balance as a whole) at the moment, cause I know they’ve been keeping a close eye on both the competitive and casual side of the game. The problem with nerfs in any competitive game is how it merely shifts the tiers; one thing loses the top spot and another one takes its place. For all we know the AK12 could be top-tier next patch, then we’d have to deal with that, haha. But for now, I think the ASM1 need some fine tuning to adjust the oppressive nature of its power output.

I don’t mind a challenge and I don’t mind top tiers, but when something makes a game nearly unplayable, even if you’re using the same gun, then something’s got to change. Hopefully the change will be for the better, because I think the game is fairly balanced for the most part. I still want the ASM1 to be good and use-able, just like the Bal still is, but something needs to be done about it effectively stops players in their tracks.

Ultra Weekly Highlights #10

Oni SuperThis week’s episode is mainly from matches against a friend who is, let’s just say, a lot more random that people you’d meet usually. There’s some cool stuff I manage to pull off during the matches, but there’s also some head-scratchers in there too. The second to last clip is definitely the most impressive this time, so look out for that one.
