Titanfall: Collector’s Edition

October 22, 2013

EA and Respawn Entertainment have finally announced a release date for Titanfall. March 13, 2014 is when this insanely promising game is coming out. My most anticipated shooter ever.  I cannot wait.

Also, a $249.99 Collector’s Edition bundle has been announced. It comes with juicy content such as an 18″ Titan and 190 pages art book.

I will buy this insanely overpriced edition because I believe this game will give me roughly 1000 hours of fun.

More information is available on the official website.

I’ll be spending $249.99 on this beauty.

Top 5 for 2014

October 12, 2013

Some of my readers have been asking me what my most anticipated games for 2014 are, so I thought I’d share it with y’all.

5. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
Kiefer Sutherland. Next generation hardware. Solid Snake. Open world. Tactical espionage. I mean, come on. How can one not be excited for this? All the MGS have been masterful.

4. The Evil Within
Shinji Mikami, the father of horror returns for his next generation debut and it is looking beyond scary. I am certain I will get an heart attack from this game and that my hands will be dripping sweat.

3. Titanfall
Titanfall looks to be the best shooter in… forever? I can’t foresee any other shooters other than maybe Battlefront being anywhere close to rivaling Titanfall. Forget Call of Duty and Battlefield, a new king will emerge.

2. Thief
The new trailers look so amazing. The gameplay looks amazing. The slogan is amazing. Everything about Thief looks amazing and they just keep putting out these amazing trailers and my hype keeps rising.

1. Destiny
Destiny remains unrivaled at first place. It is looking like game changer and that’s a huge deal. I am certain I will easily invest 500-1000 hours depending on the support Bungie gives this game. I cannot wait.

What are your top 5 for 2014?

What’s yours is mine.

My most anticipated games

September 19, 2013

As you might know, I’ll be getting the PlayStation 4 console exclusively for my living room entertainment. I have owned at least one console each generation since I was born and I don’t plan on leaving the console gaming scene any time soon. Although I am changing my policies around.

This generation I will only buy console exclusives for my PS4. Games that will be available for the PC as well will always be bought for the PC. Naturally I will pick up PS4 exclusives as well.

So what are some of my most anticipated games for the next generation?

Deep Down (PS4 exclusive)
This looks to be Capcom’s answer to the insanely successful Dark Souls/Demons Souls franchise and it is looking very, very impressive so far. I kind of get the vibe of Dark Souls / Assassin’s Creed touch with the story and that’s very interesting. Add to this that this is an exclusive title only found on the PS4, and well, I am hooked. I can’t wait to start exploring dungeons and adventures as a knight in glorious next generation graphics.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (Console exclusive)
The fifth installment in the highly masterful Metal Gear Solid series can’t come soon enough. I remember picking up “the first one” for PlayStation One as a little kid and enjoying it more than anything I’ve enjoyed in life at that time. It was magical and the fifth installment will make it a bit more special now that I am back on the PlayStation team. The game itself looks better than all the previous installments with realistic graphics, an enormous open world to explore and Kiefer Sutherland voicing Solid Snake. Day one purchase and I’ll even pick up the Collector’s Edition should there be one.

The Order 1886 (PS4 exclusive)
I love the olden days. 1886 seems like a very appealing year for me but with a twist in The Order. Although we’ve only seen a vague trailer revealing the setting and story, I was hooked immediately. Set in London makes it even better as there are too few games that take place in that fascinating city.

Destiny (Console exclusive, PS4 exclusive content)
Destiny looks to be a game changer. It’s basically an MMO FPS with gorgeous visuals, deep gameplay and customization like never before. It’s an open living world that changes constantly and reacts to you. It will be an absolutely magical adventure with all my friends. Expect me to disappear from reality once this game comes out. I am sure it will forever change how we play games.

Final Fantasy XV (Console exclusive)
The upcoming Final Fantasy game looks fresh, fast and severely more adapted for the western gamer than any other in the series. I love this. With excellent animations, in fact, better than any other I have ever seen in my life, and superb voice acting and a deep story, Final Fatansy XV is a must have for me.

The Division
The first gameplay video we saw of The Division blew my mind away. The amount of detail and realism in portraying New York CIty was without a doubt the best one I’ve seen to date. Add to this that it’s a cooperatively focused shooter with online focus, and I am drooling. Expect me to take my crew out for adventures frequently.

EA Sports UFC (Console exclusive)
I love MMA. It’s my favorite sport. Although we’ve only seen alpha gameplay from this game, I can say I will love it. I loved their first MMA game without any of the UFC licenses and now with a new modern next generation engine and the UFC license, it can’t go wrong. This is my most anticipated fighting game.

Titanfall
Titanfall looks to be a fast-paced shooter unlike any other. With unique concepts and methods. Since it’s coming out for the PC, I’ll be getting it for that. Also, it has won basically every single award from every single convention it has showed up on. I mean, can every single journalist in the world be wrong? I doubt it.

Star Wars: Battlefront
A FPS Star Wars game created by DICE running on Frostbite Engine 3. I mean, do I even have to say another word to sell it? I didn’t think so.

The Evil Within
The Father of Horror returns with his new original IP and I am sold. Investigating mental institutions is something that sounds like an incredibly smart idea and I can’t foresee anything going wrong. Or scary happening. Or am I out on thin ice here? Either way, I am sure this will be the scariest game I have ever played in my life.

Runner-ups: Star Wars: Visceral Games Project, Mirrors Edge 2, Kingdom Hearts 3, The Witcher 3, Dragon Age 3, Dying Light

I’ve got a gut feeling that Destiny will change how I perceive games and that I will spend more time with it than any other console game ever.

Some new Titanfall gameplay

August 31, 2013

I have insanely high expectations for this game.

Titanfall looks phenomenal

August 21, 2013

Everytime I see Titanfall it just looks better and better. It is without a doubt the most promising shooter out there right now.  Sure, Battlefield 4 looks much better and technologically impressive, but Titanfall just looks like so much more fun and has that insane fast pace that I love.

But enough of me talking. Just check out the trailer yourself and be amazed.

Titanfall has no singleplayer

June 24, 2013

Respawn Entertainment have now confirmed that their next Xbox One exclusive killer-app that won numerous “best game of E3” awards will not have a singleplayer campaign, but will instead solely be a multiplayer experience. And you know what? I like it.

It takes balls to do something like this. A lot of poor third-world kids with Internet from the 80:s will complain. But who cares about them? Respawn had a very good reason to skip it. They want the multiplayer to be perfect and are a growing studio, to waste resources on a short 5-hour campaign is pointless in their opinion, and I concur.

TitanFall looks like the most amazing shooter I’ve ever seen, and that’s no little accomplishment. I have expectations beyond realism. I can’t wait. I’ll buy every single DLC and even a collectors edition should there be one. This is the reason to own a Xbox One.

You wanted an exclusive killer AAA-title for the Xbox One, Microsoft delivered.

Two games that make me forget the PS4

June 22, 2013

In case you missed it, I’m sticking with Microsoft again next generation now that they changed their policy regarding region lock. My primary reason I preliminarily chose the PlayStation 4 was, because at that time, it was region free and the Xbox One was not. But when that changed, PlayStation 4 lost all of it’s caché to me.

There are two Xbox One exclusive games that seem completely and utterly masterful. The first one is TitanFall which has won best game of E3 2013 according to every major gaming website and looks beyond amazing. From the studio that brought you Modern Warfare nonetheless. I’m sure it’ll be an absolute killer-app for the Xbox One and something PlayStation 4 owners will miss.

The second game is Quantum Break. An entirely new and unique franchise which combines a TV show and video game relationship that has never been done before. You control both. You decide what happens. Alan Wake was excellent and I see no reason to doubt Remedy on this title either, which also naturally is an Xbox One exclusive.

Of course, there are many more AAA-exclusives for the Xbox One that were shown such as Halo 5 but these two titles spoke to me the most.

Exclusive games make a console. And in that area, Xbox One destroys the PS4.
