Getting ready to watch Microsoft at GamesCom


As you all know back to school is rolling out, what you may not know is that this is about to be the home stretch for many industries. Back to school means the beginning of Fall, and the beginning of fall means it is time to get ready for Holiday 2017. Thats right if it is almost the end of Summer, close to the beginning of the month of September that means that we are 4 months away from Christmas. And companies have to position themselves to be THAT ITEM that all the GOOD(or passably good, hell just passing on their first report card of the year) litttle girls and boys are going to annoy the every loving fuck out of their parents for. As a former child the useless pieces of plastic that I hoped and dreamed on REALLY ramped up the advertising right about now. The new Die Cast Optimus Prime, the new Playstation, Or Nintendo, or Sega, Or Atari(I can’t say Xbox I was fully grown by the time Microsoft joined the gaming race).

If it wasn’t this system it was a game{ Joe Montana, Madden, Lakers vs Celtics, Lakers vs Bulls, Nba Live, MORTAL KOMBAAAAAAAAAT!(what doesn’t everybody say it that way in their heads?), or even street fighter. As such everyone has a million and a half conferences or expos leading up to the end of summer to show off their latest and greatest. E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) was in June, Microsoft and Sony were both there, each showed off their wares, but now it is Gamescom Sony has decided to bow out AGAIN this year instead going to Paris Games Week for what reason I don’t know. Did the Gamescom folks piss in Sony’s corn flakes? *Shrug* what it does do though is give Microsoft a rare opportunity to take the stage with absolutely no rebuttal whatsoever. They can show off their newest games, give the upcoming Xbox One X center stage, as well as convince more people that 500 dollars (plus tax) needs to be sent their way. (more…)

Microsofts E3 part 2


if you read the earlier post you see that Microsoft brought the games to E3 2017, not some of the unfortunate canceled titles from 2016 but a whole range of new ones with all different levels of Experiences being offered. Now understand for the most part this isn’t the grand daddy show oh no Microsoft I believe is going to do it again on either Tuesday or Wednesday this was basically just “Hey this is our new hardware and the games we will be showing off this week.” And with 42 games in all they have created quite a buzz. Anyway next up on the list was

Cuphead, this game has been kicking around for a few years it looks like an old school cartoon I mean early days of color style cartoon. It was just a quick reminder and a release date but it is nice to see an anticipated game come out instead of being canceled(say like Scalebound, that game looked cool as shit). It’s basically a side scrolling shooter but it could be fun.

Crackdown 3, crackdown one was a fun game that we all liked til my 360 broke, Crackdown 2 came out and became the game that NOBODY talked about(I guess I could look it up) I didn’t get a chance to play it because my Xbox 360 finally died and I wanted a blu ray player so I got a PS3. The action proposes to be more over the top and they have PROMISED fully destructible environments, it has a release date now so lets see if they can deliver. And with Terry Crews as one of the voice actors you know you will be constantly hyped up, as you can see in the trailer he is having way too much fun in his shiny outfit. Yall den gave TC a big gun, a microphone and told him go HAM smh it’s like they want a Cole Train in Crackdown 3. Come on now I know as you level up so does your gear “Step up your Boom” though, have they not seen an Old Spice commercial? (more…)


Xbox One X? XOX tired of the Bone jokes are we Microsoft?


Not that the term Xbone X won’t become a thing, cause it probably will, looks sweet though. And yes, yes I know how game fanboys are people are gonna be all about “specs mean nada, what about the games” welp as Phil announced 22 exclusives with double X enhanced experiences(Hmm the XX I like it, almost porno graphic yup they had to see this coming). Now to be fair, I got so bored trying to wait for the conference to start that I missed the beginning of the show so I watched someone else’s live stream and wound it back. I wanted to make sure I got the console name right before I started Blogging about it. SO the important shit:

The Xbox One X is smaller(it’s barely larger than the controller I guess they got tired of the SIZE comments cause people only like their Dicks, Tits, Asses and TV’s big smh), it looks sleeker, comes in an almost either matte black or else Gun Metal Gray. It is also Launching as a Scorpio(IE between October 22 and November 21), they didn’t keep the name but at least they dropped it around the right time. I know I am currently watching the mixer stream, but they are dropping these exclusives like crazy, a new Metro(which I will get into detail with later), Forza 7, Deep Rock Galactic, State of Decay 2, The Darwin Project, okay and now they are talking about a minecraft update. It almost looks like Microsoft is saying “take your claims of 4k gaming not being possible and our lack of games along with your PS4 Pro, without a 4k bluray player even though Sony makes it, turn that sum bitch sideways and shove it straight up your ass.
