Rainbow Six Siege Cheaters

Hey Guys, if you didn't already know I love to play Rainbow Six Siege. I put in just over 100 hours into the game. Ever since I had written my review on the game, the game has been progressively getting better. As a matter of fact, new DLC has been dropped for it this month that makes the game worth a buy.

Because I have been playing the game since its launch, I have gotten much better at the game. It's a game that I admit to actually being good at. However, I've been playing casual matches for the longest time without realizing how more lucrative it was to play ranked matches.

Anyways, Season 2 for ranked matches has recently started up, which means everyone's rank refreshed. Personally, I ranked Silver IV. It's nothing special, but I am happy about since I ended Season 1 in the Bronze ranked. However, I've been jumping back and fourth between Silver III and IV. I'm tired of it.

There are times where I legitimately lose because there are just players who are better than me. However, there are times where I lose because there are a bunch of assholes who think glitching is the best way of winning. Here's what I mean.

This isn't the only map where you can glitch into the truck. I think every map that has one of these huge trucks can be exploited. I am not showing you how these assholes do it because I don't want other assholes to do the same. I know I don't curse much, but these guys deserve to be called assholes. As a matter of fact, I don't even care that I didn't censor their gamertags. These guys need to be exposed.

Something has to be done about this. It's aggravating to have to die from one of these cheaters.
Till Next Time!!

Dead Island Definitive Collection: My Thoughts

Hey Guys, I was browsing the internet as usual and found out that there is a definitive edition for Dead Island. However, Dead Island: Riptide is also being remastered as well. The Dead Island Definitive Edition will be released on May 31st 2016 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. For my USA readers, you can get your hands on this for $40! Dead Island: Retro is also included.

Before I share my thoughts on this, I know about the new Xbox One rumors, but I already said I am not talking about these "newer" Xbox One and PS4 consoles.

Whether you liked the first two Dead Island games or not is totally opinion bases. Personally, I had fun with the first game, but I eventually got bored of the game after completing the story, which isn't great by the way. Additionally, I was not happy about the amount of bugs the game had at the time I played it.

I never played the second game because I heard mixed reviews about it. When I read that many of the same technical problems the first game had was still present in Riptide, I just had no interest in playing the game.

It's clear there was more emphasis on the looks of the game rather than its performance. I do not believe I saw a single thing about the bugs being fixed for this new collection, so there are already some red flags. Maybe Deep Silver is doing something about the bugs, but they haven't said anything yet.

Some of you may not care about this at all, but this effects PlayStation 4 users. You know how there are physical copies of the game? Well, Xbox One users are able to access both games on one disc. However, PlayStation 4 users are able to play the first Dead Island on disc while they must digitally download Dead Isand: Riptide.

I can't be the only one scratching my head about this. What were they thinking!? I'm sure the PS4 is more than powerful enough to handle both games. However, there are "limitations" as according to Deep Silver. What that means; I have no idea.

I think the most important question to ask is, who was asking for this? Seriously, did anyone want a remaster of Dead Island? Do people even talk about Dead Island 2 anymore? Should this even be $40? I can answer one of these questions confidently, $40 is way too much for this "bundle" especially since one of them is more or less the same game.

Xbox Live: Free Games of June 2016- Let me put the bleach away...

Hey Guys, the new free games for Xbox Live Gold members have been announced today and this has to be one of the best months for Games with Gold. However, I will save my thoughts for later and present to you the free games.
Image Provided by Express
For Xbox One owners, Goat Simulator and The Crew will be free. Starting from June 1-30th, Goat Simulator will be free. The Crew will be free from June 16th to July 15th.

For Xbox 360 owners, Super Meat Boy will be free from June 1st-15th. Then, it will be replaced by XCOM: Enemy Unknown from June 16th-30th.

Okay, now let me share my thoughts.

I never played Goat Simulator. The closest thing I even came to "experiencing" Goat Simulator was through YouTube videos. The game itself is good, but there really is no reason for it to be free on a console. I personally would play it on a PC rather than on a console, but I guess it is just my personal preference.

I heard The Crew was one of the most disappointing games of 2014, so I am pretty sure I am not going to play it. Additionally, I am not a big fan of racing games, so I probably wouldn't enjoy the game regardless.

I heard Super Meat Boy is hard as hell. I am up for a good challenge, so bring it on!

My friend actually had nothing but good things to say about XCOM. He played the shit out of XCOM 2 when it first released. I want to see what is so good about it, so I am going to be downloading this game.

This is a much better month than last month. I didn't even download any of the games from last month. Actually, I just downloaded Costume Quest 2, but I have yet to even play it.
Till Next Time!!

Should you buy the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Trilogy?

Hey Guys, there is a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Trilogy that has been listed for $30. Sounds like a great deal, right? Well, I am going to be talking about this in the most neutral way possible.

Image Provided by IGN
Keep in mind that the Stimulus Pack for Modern Warfare 2 is the only DLC available in this entire trilogy bundle. Additionally, this is only available for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. As of May 14th, there is no Call of Duty game that is backwards compatible for the Xbox One, so this is only available for last-gen consoles.

I can't count how many times I said this, but if you were to release a bundle like this then every bit of DLC should be included! These games are really old now, so why would it matter if every DLC was given for free? I understand that people still play these games online to this day, but that's exactly why the DLC should be free, so the games could have a wider group of players.

Personally, I loved the campaigns for each of these games especially Modern Warfare. I think it is a great trilogy in terms of the story, but the fact that there is a severe lack of DLC included in this bundle is what is preventing this from being a great bundle.

So should you buy this? If you want to experience the story of Modern Warfare and never got the chance to, I would say pick it up. Otherwise, do not buy this if you are planning on going back into the multiplayer since most DLC is not included.

Seriously, Infinity Ward are a bunch of cheap bastards. If you can get your hands on Borderlands 2: Game of the Year Edition for $20, which has over a $100 worth of DLC included, then I'm 100% positive that Infinity Ward is more than capable of giving every bit of DLC for each game in this bundle.

Battlefield 1: My Thoughts

Hey Guys, Call of Duty decided to go far into the future and Battlefield decided to go back to the past. Specifically, all the way back to World War I. If you go to YouTube, the trailer to Battlefield 1 has almost 600,000 likes and it's still going. Infinite Warfare is literally on the verge of 700,000 dislikes. I can already see it getting to one million.

Anyways, I think the hype train for Battlefield 1 has blinded every person on the fact that this is an EA game. I'm not actually going to be ripping on the game itself because it actually looks like it might be a good game-mostly because it's not in the future. I'm talking about EA and how they could potentially ruin the game with their usual marketing strategy.

I am going to give them the benefit of the doubt when it comes to their servers on the first day because I heard Battlefront and Battlefield: Hardline weren't as bad as Battlefield 4's initial launch. I think they finally learned their lesson when it comes to the multiplayer.

Now, you want to see what $220 can get you? It's totally not a scam at all.

I think the statue is what makes this Collector's Edition so expensive. Don't get me wrong, it's not that bad, but $220 for this? Why not sell the statue separately for people who don't want the Collector's Edition? Additionally, why playing cards? You could literally get those anywhere, so why in the world would anyone need Battlefield-themed playing cards?

I've never been a fan of steelbooks to be honest. If someone has to pay $220 for this, they should have at least included the standard game case. I know I'm being picky, but I personally feel that steelbooks don't look good in my collection.

The contents of the collector's edition are totally subjective to your own taste, but I do not really like what is included in this edition. Well, the statue is pretty cool.

There's also the Deluxe Edition of the game for $80-arguably worse than the collector's edition-that gives you in-game content and early access to the game on October 18th. Additionally, if you're an Access or Origin member then you also get early access to the game.

Have you guys noticed anything? It's something that actually important. I'll give you guys a couple of seconds to take a guess of what I'm talking about. Guessed it, yet? Well, you either looked ahead you cheater, you couldn't figure it out, or good job you guessed it.

There is no mention of a season pass.

I have no idea what this could possible mean. EA is the king of season passes! Either they are just waiting to release it at a later date or they won't release it at all. Regardless, both are still bad ideas. Let me explain.

If EA releases this at a later date, there is no guarantee that those who already bought the Deluxe or Collector's Edition will actually get the season pass. I would personally be pissed if I found out that I paid $220 for the Collector's Edition and not get the season pass with it.

If they don't release it at all, then there will be people who will be complaining about not wanting to pay $15 per DLC pack that comes out.

I got the sneaking suspicion that people are only hyping up this game because they are butthurt about Infinite Warfare, yet they fail to realize that Infinity Ward and EA are both using these marketing tactics to make you pay more for their games than you actually should.

Did you see anyone hyping up Battlefield: Hardline? That was doing something new. Battlefield 1 is also doing something new by going to the past. I really don't understand what people want anymore since we humans are all such phonies.

This may seem trivial, but whose idea was to call this Battlefield 1? Seriously, couldn't they have called it something else. Maybe Battlefield: WW1? Battlefield: World at War? Battlefield 5?

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare: My Thoughts

Hey Guys, Infinite Warfare has been formally announced earlier this morning. More details have been given throughout the day and the Modern Warfare Remaster is a real thing. If you haven't seen the trailer, then you should go check it out before you read on. I'll give my thoughts on the trailer first.
Image Provided by PlayStation Blog

The trailer itself was only okay. It wasn't anything too spectacular, but I will admit that the graphics really amazed me. It seems like Call of Duty is going a step in the right direction in terms of visuals. However, the trailer is an ominous sign that the franchise has officially gone full on sci-fi. I got a major Star Wars vibe while watching the trailer and this is not a good thing. I am not a fan of futuristic Call of Duty, but I am willing to try out the space combat.

Speaking of space combat, you could tell that Infinity Ward is hyping the hell out of space combat. Remember the last Call of Duty that hyped up something this "big"? Hint, it has something to do with a dog that only shows up for a total of 15 minutes(more or less). I just get the sneaking suspicion that space combat will be minimal, so I'm calling it now.

Additionally, Zombies is confirmed to come back. However, it's going to have a new storyline as according to the PlayStation Blog. More details on multiplayer and zombies will be given at a later date.

Remember, DLC is still coming first to PlayStation first much like Black Ops III. Okay, now this is what I really want to talk about.

If you couldn't already tell, the Digital Deluxe Edition of Infinite Warfare will come with Modern Warfare Remaster and the season pass. There is also the Legacy Edition and Legacy Pro Edition. The cheapest option is the Legacy Edition as it's $80 USD.

I couldn't care less about the editions of Infinite Warfare, but what I do care about is the Modern Warfare Remaster. I recently found out that Modern Warfare Remaster will not have a standalone release, so you could only get it digitally. I find it quite disappointing because I personally like having physical copies of my games, but I really don't mind at this point since I have no choice but to get this digitally.

Personally, I would most likely play Modern Warfare over Infinite Warfare. It's basically choosing Future COD or Modern COD and I don't really enjoy the future COD games. I can't possibly be the only one who isn't going to be playing Infinite Warfare over Modern Warfare.

I feel like Infinity Ward is going to make Modern Warfare Remaster a bundle exclusive just so they could sell Infinite Warfare. It wouldn't be a bad business move on their end because they got to sell more copies somehow. I think they are aware that not many people are playing Advanced Warfare much anymore, so they want to have some kind of relevancy.

To summarize my main point, I'm not entirely impressed with Infinite Warfare, but I am definitely excited for the Modern Warfare Remaster.
Till Next Time!!
