Yup, we received a free controller to review thanks to Brook Games and I just wanted to get that out the way for reasons that people may feel deceived. All right with that being said let’s talk gaming and let’s talk about the tools we use to perform such amazing god-like skills. I have said for years that it is not the controller but the user behind the controller that sets the bar between newb and hardcore gamer. It all comes down to all these different controllers that claim to offer precision inputs and enhances your performance. A few gamers shared the same thought that I did when I was younger, because instead of something that enhances you why not a controller that can be played on all systems like a universal remote? We getting there folks.
It was bound to happen or rather get better. There have been many gaming phones throughout the years Sony had a PlayStation phone and so did Nokia at a time with their taco phone which was weird. Now Razer is coming out with their own gaming smartphone and seems to be quite interesting.
I laughed at the thought when I was younger of a universal controller that can be used on all systems. It was a childhood thought of mine to own that powerful controller where you don’t have to do much configuration and it is just plug in only. I love it when years later you hear one of your ideas become a reality because you get the impression that someone out there with the means feels the same way as you do.
Sorry for the misleading title, but to be clear we are discussing the idea around raids being questionable for certain games. So far, I keep thinking about raids in a general scope of endurance with tough opponents and having to grind to reach a certain level to survive. This concept has been mostly in MMORPG’s and in many cases, regular RPG’s where you have to level up your team to tackle certain obstacles before you reach the main boss. Can raids work in games outside the MMORPG genre?
The doorbell rings at a quarter to 8 pm, as my other half answers the door, he witnesses a FedEx delivery man walking away. A massive box now sits upon my doorstep, He calls out to me “Are you expecting a package?”, “No?” I responded, “ Well it’s for you”, then he walks in the door with the package and states “It’s not Ticking!”. I open the box, which reveals a letter from HyperX, which starts off ironically with exactly what I was thinking.
You knew darn well this was going to happen after the success of the NES classic mini. Here comes the Super NES Classic mini or Super Famicon for our overseas friends which will sport 20 games and will go for $80. Is it worth it?
Sega, my go to console when I was a child. the fond memories rushing home just to crack down on some Altered Beast or Road Rash. It is Throwback Thursday after all and what better way to enjoy this day by talking about the free to play Sega Forever for mobile games.
This is a bit late but finally finished the editing as we sit down with DJ Taifu of Teh Lunchbox Publications. I knew this young gamer back in the 1up.com days where he kind of adopted me as his big brother. From then on we have gamed and shared some adventures, but he is now living his own dream with Teh Lunchbox Publications bringing all things movies, games, and other nerdcore things to you the people. Here we are again with another Born with a Controller as we hear Taifu’s gaming journey.
It is interesting seeing a comeback to a lot of classic games, especially with gamers that scream about graphics mattering and oh look you have a Nintendo Mini. I love it though between checking out the Retron 5 all in one system or the return of the Superboy which is a Super NES handheld. It is a great time to be a collector of games, but you also would like to use a classic controller with these items. 8BitDo is here with some pretty sweet devices for your retro gaming needs that are available now.
This is the best way to go out of April since this is the last week and all with an awesome interview of a shout caster in the Hardcore League Deadeye. What is a shout caster? Well, I am glad you ask, pretty much they are eSports commentators that give you the lay of the battlefield or play by play of what happens in the game. So far I have witnessed FGC casters, Moba casters and some Gears of War caster, but never have I witnessed one for Battlefield ever. This is a game that needs it the most with over 64 players and a huge map that is full of competitive players. It was cool meeting a lot of gamers across the board in the Gamers Community discord which you should check out and now get a sit down with a new gamer telling us their journey on how they became who they are when they realized they were Born with a Controller.
