I got a moose in the next room(My nephew) and I am waiting for my pre-order to come through. Yes I pre ordered Injustice 2, the first one was extremely fun and while I waited til it was long in the tooth to buy it I had a blast playing it way on the PS4. I got I2 for the X-bone though. The only annoying thing, I misread WHEN it would be available, I saw 11 o’clock I thought they meant eastern time. No, Primal they meant in your Time Zone because it’s available at midnight.
So guess who just tried to play Injustice 2 54 minutes early? Yes I know most likely by the time I finish this blog, edit it, mark it up and yadda yadda it will probably be midnight, but that doesn’t change the fact that I was rushing, a game, that I already paid for, because I am an impatient ass.(Eikichi is somewhere laughing hysterically in agreement right now, so fuck him in advance).

FINALLY PLAYSTATION HAS COME INTO THE EXTERNAL STORAGE GENERATION!
Yes it has to be said like that, it has been a sticking point since the middle of the extended console generation of the Xbox 360 and the PS3, Sony has been dicking around with allowing you to use external hard drives to save your games(not you save files but the games themselves) and transport them around. It was actually one of the BIGGEST role reversals in the last two console generations, with the PS3 Sony was DRM’d down and as horror stories came out about it folks were flocking to the Xbox 360 for the free gaming experience and the lack of hardline when it came to whether or not you could buy, sell, or rent the games. Unfortunately when it came to the Xbox one Microsoft jumped too far with the “always on, always connected to the internet” rhetoric when it came to the Xbox one. You had to have the camera(which they had an understandable reason for, it wasn’t explained well) and so was them wanting you to always be connected to the internet(for constant software updates) once again their messenger SUCKED.
The one thing that they DID present correctly was the ability to buy external storage to boost your Xbox One from 500 GB internal(which was what most of the initial consoles of both companies shipped with) to 500 internal plus whatever size external drive was available at the time. In 2013 that would most likely have been a 1 tb, which at the time would have been pretty good for an external drive, and I’m sure if you had an arm or leg to spare you might even find a 2 tb or maybe a 3 tb of the storage with it’s own power source.

So there is a new Ghost Recon coming out(hey they blew the dust off Rainbow Six so why not) it is set in Bolivia going after a drug lord. Excuse me, I am acting like you know this game: Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands. In the middle of last generations console wars(Ps3, Xbox 360, and yeah it was just them lol) a bunch of Tom Clancy games were release by Ubisoft among them were:
- Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell
- Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon
- Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six
- Tom Clancy’s Endwar
- Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X.
Most of these games were set in “the modern era” I have that in quotes because it mostly meant cold war to present(which at that time would have been the mid 2000’s) and took you through a lot of detailed and varied environments. The Rainbow Six series took place in mostly urban/populated environments while Ghost Recon tended to be battlefield/wide open areas where cover was usually vegetation and team based strategy was at a premium. The games in bold were my favorites, and some might wonder how is that different from Battlefield(wide open spaces) and Call of Duty(urban/populated environs with lots of team based strategy). That is simple, prior to the success of the Rainbow 6 series Call of Duty tended to be set in word war II or at least have World War II style weapons and action and Battlefield as well. Now there is nothing wrong with historical fighting games, but Tom Clancy games made use of modern technology and modern weapons. (more…)
