NSFW!! Parental Advisory! We streamed the show originally back in July 2016.
Yeah, you read it correctly! Your 3 favorite old gamers are back! On this episode, we pay a tribute to my late wife (who Griffey called Mrs. Otakuman). We were completely off the cuff with this episode, We did our section PLWR: Playing, Listening, Watching, and Reading. Griffey is playing Mad Max and talking about Big Shel’s Kitchen. Shel is headed to EVO 2016. We are having a blast on the show. Check out the show.
WB Games and Netherreal Studios have announced Mortal Kombat XL, an all in one edition of Mortal Kombat X that includes all the DLC from Kombat Pack 1 and 2. Preordering Also gives you the Cosplay Pack which dresses Cassie and Jaqui as Lin Kei and Shira Raiu respectively. That is an excellent pack. The XL edition and Kombat Pack 2 will not be coming to the PC version which has had numerous issues.
For the first time ever, the Mario & Luigi RPG series is crossing over with the Paper Mario rpg series. Mario and Luigi: Paper Jam for 3DS is the crossover game and it’ll be coming out on January 22nd in North America. However, the game is currently out in Europe (as Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam Bros) and Nintendo UK has released a few trailers for it on their 3DS youtube channel. The newest trailer is an overview for the game.
Give this trailer a look and let us know if you plan to buy this game in January:
I first had the opportunity to check out This War of Mine at PAX East. I was immediately intrigued. The art is absolutely beautiful in its realistic simplicity. The game sucks you in and keeps you wondering what will happen day to day. You truly go through the day to day of what it’s like to live in a country ravaged by warfare.
I found myself wondering if I would survive and make it. You see the characters struggling and dealing with the psychological effects.
11 Bit Studios describes This War of Mine as:
This War Of Mine provides an experience of war seen from an entirely new angle. For the very first time you do not play as an elite soldier, rather a group of civilians trying to survive in a besieged city. During the day snipers outside stop you from leaving your refuge, so you need to focus on maintaining your hideout. At night you get a chance to scavenge nearby locations for items that will help you stay alive.
Make life-and-death decisions driven by your conscience. Try to protect everybody from your shelter or sacrifice some of them to endure the hardships. During war, there are no good or bad decisions; there is only survival. The sooner you realize that, the better.
11 Bit Studios created a great game that will keep you enthralled for hours. I highly recommend checking This War of Mine out and giving it a try. I give the game a 9 out of 10.
This War of Mine is available now. Check it out and buy it here.
This morning it was announced via social media that WildStar will be going free-to-play.
My opinion on this is it’s about time! I think the subscription models for MMOs is becoming outdated and a lot of people are more hesitant for shelling out that kind of money, especially for a game that’s new and people don’t know a whole lot about. I think if your game is good enough, you can survive as a free-to-play game and get people to pay for other things.
I first saw WildStar at PAX East a couple years ago and I was intrigued. I love MMOs. They manage to engulf my life when I start playing. What would an MMO be without that?! 😉 I decided to jump in and bought the game while there. Hey, why not? I was caught up in the craze of PAX.
I played it a bit here and there and it was okay, but it was hard to justify paying a subscription for it. Now that that’s finally being taken away, I may just jump back in again.
The Free-to-Play won’t be available until the fall, but you can sign up for the beta here.
What do you think? Will you play? What do you think of the subscription model for MMOs?
