Tentative Twitch Streaming Schedule for the Week of 10–21-2017 – 10-28-2017

This is my upcoming schedule for streaming on Twitch. I’m going to try to stick to it as best as possible but of course no promises, you can find out when I’m streaming if you follow me on either Twitch or Twitter because I’ll be announcing it every time I start streaming.

Sunday – 12:30 PM – 3:30 PM (Wolfenstein: The New Order) and 5:30 PM – 7:00 PM (South Park: The Fractured But Whole)

Monday – 5:30 PM – 8:30 PM (South Park: The Fractured But Whole)

Tuesday – 5:30 PM – 8:30 PM (Wolfenstein: The New Order)

Wednesday – 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM (South Park: The Fractured But Whole)

Thursday – 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM (Wolfenstein: The New Order)

Friday – 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM (Assassin’s Creed: Origins)

Saturday – 12:30 PM – 3:30 PM (Assassin’s Creed: Origins) and 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM (South Park: The Fractured But Whole)

So there you have it, my tentative stream schedule for the upcoming week. Playing Assassin’s Creed: Origins on release day will depend on if I actually get my game or not on release day, if not it’ll be switched out for a different game. There’s also the fact that I’m just about finished with Wolfenstein: The New Order and those days that I’m supposed to stream it will probably be dedicated to getting the platinum trophy for that game and those streams will be cancelled. Also, I am always looking for suggestions, so what do you want to see me stream? I’m even open to doing a co-op stream if anyone is interested let me know and we can set something up.

Monopoly Plus Review (PS4)

Monopoly Plus

As a child I was always a fan of board games. I loved Candy Land to death and when I finally reached my teenage years, I was introduced to Monopoly. Needless to say, I absolutely fell in love with this game because of it’s whole premise. Move around the board, buying properties, building houses, and collecting money from other people until you bankrupt them. What’s not to love about that? Not to mention that when you’re actually playing with other people the shady dealings that go on. “Oh you can’t afford to pay me for my hotel on Broadwalk? Well, you can try to mortgage just about everything you have…or you could just give me your collection of green properties and we can call it even.” The other person looks nervous before handing them over and essentially handing you the game, as if you didn’t already have it. It took a while for me to realize that I actually had this game with the Hasbro Family Fun Pack: Conquest Edition that I purchased last year, so I figured I would give it a go and see if it held up to my standards.

Anyone remember this game on the Nintendo? So while I played the actual board game Monopoly. Who hasn’t? I also played the Nintendo version that introduced the whole “auction concept” which was just fascinating to me because when you play the board game if someone can’t afford a property it get’s left alone until someone else you can afford the property lands on it and buys it. Needless to say, I loved playing Monopoly hours upon hours on the Nintendo. Anyway else play on the Nintendo? Let me know in the comments section.

Monopoly Plus is exactly like the board game so there isn’t any story to it. I mean if you want to be creative you can make one up in your head, but the main point of the game is to play with other people, move around the board, buy properties, build houses, turn those houses into hotels, and try your hardest to bankrupt the other players in order to win the game.

Overall I have to say that I really wasn’t impressed with this game at all. There are basically two board types, the original board that showcases the classic Monopoly board and the “living” board which shows all different types of animations as you move around the board. There was really nothing special with this game as you can play by normal house rules or set your own rule like whatever is collected from Community Chest and Chance goes into free parking and whoever lands on free parking gets all that money. I couldn’t really find a reason to play beyond the hour and 30 minutes that it took me to get all the trophies for this game, because there really didn’t seem like a point. That’s not to mention that you have to play with another person. There is no AI to play with. This was just a foolish move on Ubisoft’s part in my opinion because I could have seen myself playing for a lot longer if I wasn’t playing against myself. We’ll get to the online multiplayer porting a little later on, but you get my drift. There could have been so much more to do and actually make this game more playable if there was an AI option that had different difficulty levels.

The playability of this game is simple. Pick your board, pick how you want to play, pick your piece, and start the game. All you have to do is roll the dice and click a couple of buttons to make purchases, trades, buy house and hotels, or mortgage properties. It’s so simple that when the controls simply don’t work for whatever reason it makes you want to smash your controller into a million little pieces. How many times do I have to hit R1 to buy a damn house? Apparently a lot because it seems like the game doesn’t recognize it. How many times do I have to mash the damn X button to roll the dice? More than once because the game really doesn’t respond that well to that either. Of course I checked this out on another controller thinking that I was the problem only to find out that nope, it’s the game itself. While this game doesn’t have any bugs or glitches, the fact that the controller isn’t really all that responsive causes some controller breaking moments as you try to purchase that property you want, roll the dice, trade with another player, or put up some houses and hotels. Not to mention the fact that the game animations themselves take way to long to complete making it take a long amount of time to actually move a piece around the board. This becomes annoying quickly and even hitting the skip button doesn’t work all that well or cut down the amount of time it takes for a player to complete a turn on this game.

The graphics for this game are simple and nothing to write home about. I remember enjoying the graphics for Monopoly more on the Nintendo than I did for this game. The classic board is your original board that is just floating in space and you’re living board isn’t much better either. Sure it has some animations added to it and makes it look like a living town or city, but it really does nothing for the game. The graphics were ones that just made me shrug my shoulders and try to ignore them as I went along my merry way playing this game.

Annoying announcer…is annoying. Not only are the graphics lackluster, but the announcer for this game is down right annoying. He repeats the same thing over and over again and after 10-15 minutes of this, it’s time to put the game on mute and hook up your headphones, if you’re playing alone, and listen to some music to make the time go by faster.

There are a total of 15 trophies for this game and they’re all super simple to get. You’ll basically have to do everything the game has to offer from buying property, to winning auctions, to playing locally with 6 people, and playing a game with house rules. This is nothing that can’t be done in an hour and a half or even less. I’ve seen people get all the trophies for this game in 30 minutes.

So there are only two ways you can play this game, with someone sitting next to you or with someone online. I’m going to say right now that the online is completely dead and I wasn’t able to find a match when I tried so after a good 20 minutes of searching, I gave up. Locally, you can either play with someone else logged in or you can play with a guest. Have no one to play with? You’re going to end up playing all by yourself because there is no AI for you to play against.

Overall I give this game a 1 out of 5.

What’s Great:
+ It’s the same old Monopoly that everyone knows and loves.

What’s Not So Great:
There is no AI you have to play with someone else or play against yourself if you have no one to play with. Don’t count on the online portion because it’s dead.
Graphics are lackluster and I really expected more for something that was released on the PS4.
Buttons are not at all responsive and you’ll basically be button mashing in order to roll the dice or to buy houses which becomes annoying really quickly.
Moving around the board takes way to long and so do the other animations, at first it’s cool, but gets old real quick and even hitting skip doesn’t help.

I would give it my strong recommendation to just skip this game. Even if you have a group of people and you want to play Monopoly, you’re better off going out and getting yourself a board so that you can play like that because there is nothing special about this game. Also, now a days if you get a board, there are like a million to choose from. You can even get a Mass Effect one if you want. Anyway, I know the trophies for this game are easy and if you’re in it for the trophies you’ll want to play this because not many games can give you 15 trophies in 30 minutes. If you’re not in it for the trophies and you’re looking for a decent game of Monopoly move along because you aren’t going to get it here. And here I thought that Ubisoft couldn’t screw up a game as much as they screwed up Tetris Ultimate. I hate it when I’m wrong.

Gaga: Five Foot Two Review

Gaga: Five Foot Two

When I had seen this on Netflix I knew that I had to watch it. I have been one of Gaga’s Little Monsters from the start. Those of you who know my PSN tag could probably already tell that, so it was a given that when this documentary premiered that I just had to watch it. I was a little nervous about the length because sometimes that can go in either a good direction or a bad one. Keep reading to see what I thought of the documentary as a whole.

Gaga: Five Foot Two, stars Lady Gaga. That’s kind of a given right? Anyway, it’s basically a documentary that follows her as she makes her fifth studio album Joanne. Not only does the documentary show an inside look into her writing and recording process, but it also gives an inside look into Lady Gaga herself. It shows the emotional struggles that she goes through on a daily basis as well as her physical struggles. All of this leads up to her amazing half time performance at this past years Super Bowl. You get this small sneak peek into her family life as it shows her interactions with her mother, father, and grandmother as well as some of the struggles she faced while filming American Horror Story: Roanoke. There’s even some stuff in there about her feud with Madonna.

I genuinely enjoyed this documentary. I thought that after Lady Gaga’s first three albums, The Fame, The Fame Monster, and Born This way, that the fourth one, Artpop, fell a little flat and I didn’t even purchase it. I did however purchase Joanne because it felt like Lady Gaga was going back to her original roots with the album and it sounded more like the Lady Gaga that I had come to admire and respect. Although I felt that it was a hit and miss with some songs, I absolutely loved Perfect Illusion and A Million Reasons, I thought that other songs fell flat. That was until I watched this documentary. I have a new found respect for this album especially the song Joanne. I had known a little bit of the back story, but knowing the full story and watching Lady Gaga present the song to her grandmother was just heartbreaking. I feel the same way about the rest of the album now and it’s all because of this documentary.

An inside look into Lady Gaga and who she is, is a little confusing at times and I imagine that’s just how she is. Her mind works differently and although she’s a brilliant song writer and performer that doesn’t mean that she doesn’t struggle. During the course of the documentary, she does a good job of opening up and not only showing her physical pain but her mental pain as well. It made her seem more relatable and human. She’s known for being put up on this platform, but this documentary kind of normalizes her and it’s not a bad thing.

Overall I give this movie a 4.5 out of 5.

This is going to be a must for any Lady Gaga fan as it shows how she created her alum Joanne all the way to her busting her ass to get that half time performance at the Super Bowl. While at times the documentary was a little slow and had its moments that seemed a little off balanced, it was still watchable and enjoyable. After all these years I have a new found respect for Lady Gaga and her writing process, not to mention a new found respect and understanding for her latest album Joanne. If you’re not a Lady Gaga fan, I’m going to say that you should probably give this a chance because she’s not the same person that you see in the media and everywhere else. It’s just the persona that she takes on. It’s a good documentary and should at least be given a chance to see what an amazing song writer and performer this woman is.

I Never Finished…Anomaly Warzone Earth…Because

Anomaly Warzone Earth

Another freebie from PS+, this game was a little unexpected surprise that I played during the holiday time of 2012 into 2013. It was an unexpected surprise because I actually liked the game and I liked it enough that I actually completed the whole single player campaign. Key words here are single player. Anyway, there is a reason that this game ended up on this list, so keep reading to find out why.

Alien spacecraft have landed in major cities around the globe, and it’s up to you, leader of the 14th platoon, to investigate these spacecrafts. You’ll travel to cities like futuristic Baghdad and Tokyo to do so. You’ll also have to neutralize and eliminate any threat to the area in this real-time strategy tower defense game.

I don’t know if I’ve said this before, but I really enjoy tower defense games. It’s just something about them that makes them fun no matter what it’s for really. There are so many different strategies to use depending on what tower you place where and there are so many possible outcomes. This keeps the game interesting and creative at the same time. Maybe a certain strategy didn’t work the first time, you can always change it up the second time to see what works and what doesn’t. The possibilities are endless. This is the main reason why I enjoyed this game. The story was sort of bland for this game, but that’s what happens with tower defense games. So like I said earlier, I finished the main single player campaign, but I was unable to complete the rest of the game. Two reasons really, first is because the raids are really hard and second because there are some co-op trophies and there’s no online co-op. Yes, I know if I have no one to play with I could hook up two controllers and just use one, but this is extremely difficult. I’ve tried multiple times without success, so I gave up.

As you can see from the picture above, I was able to get 9 of the 14 trophies for this game. Not bad if you ask me since the average completion for this game is 12% and I am way above that with 57%. Still the game isn’t complete though and while I’m missing the two co-op trophies, I’m also missing the two raid trophies, and one random trophy. With the exception of the random trophy, the other ones are a lot harder than you think.

Probability of this game getting played again…5 out of 5.

I know I gave this one a high ranking on my probability meter, but I really did enjoy this game and could see myself easily getting back into it. Not too sure if I would be able to get all of the trophies for this game or not since I still don’t have a co-op partner, but I could always try again to do it solo with the two controllers hooked up at once. Anyway, if I could fit a game into my schedule, it would be this one.

Now it’s your turn. What did you think about this game? Did you enjoy it as much as I did? Did you ever finish it? Or maybe you haven’t even heard of this game. Let me know in the comments section below and for next week, a truly stupid game. Well not stupid, but a stupid choice of game on my part. This just goes to show you that if you pick up a game disc that has more than one game on it that you don’t have to play them all. Next week I’ll let you know why I never finished Feeding Frenzy 2.

This Week in Trophies 10-08-2017 – 10-14-2017

For me this was a pretty hectic week with work and all and I barely found myself having enough time to play anything so most of my trophies were actually earned on Friday and Saturday. If I didn’t get those trophies it would have been a pretty boring week for trophies, but I was able to accumulate a decent amount of trophies this week, so let’s take a look at them.

Marvels Guardians of the Galaxy: A Telltale Series – 80%

The latest episode for this game was released this week so I was able to play it and finish it, which means that I won’t be giving any details on this episode just yet and you’ll have to wait until the review. I will say that I enjoyed the episode though and look forward to the final episode.

The Four Kings Casino and Slots – 54%

This game just keeps adding more and more DLC and trophies to the list that it’s just crazy. I’m really not a fan of this game since it seems a lot like a casino version of PlayStation home, but the trophies seemed easy enough and I’ve been ignoring this game so I gave it a chance. The trophies that I got were really simple since they were for the slot machines and it’s easy to put them on auto play while I do something else. I only really have to look up during the bonus rounds.

Wolfenstien: The New Order – 15%

I started playing this game yesterday after I watched a friend play the first hour of it. It’s one of those games that have been sitting in my backlog for so long that I decided the hell with it and just started it. I’m also streaming this game on my Twitch account which you find here. So far I’m enjoying the game, even though I’ve died like a million times already, and am really interested to see where the story goes.

Wolfenstein®: The New OrderWolfenstein®: The New OrderWolfenstein®: The New OrderWolfenstein®: The New OrderWolfenstein®: The New OrderWolfenstein®: The New OrderWolfenstein®: The New OrderWolfenstein®: The New OrderWolfenstein®: The New OrderWolfenstein®: The New Order

A total of 22 trophies to round out my week which isn’t really that bad considering I only got two days in of actual game time. Anyway, as for next week, I’ll be playing the new Life is Strange: Before the Storm episode, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, and more Wolfenstien: The New Order. I’m also trying to come up with a more consistent stream schedule since I won’t be doing Let’s Play videos for Wolfenstien: The New Order or South Park: The Fractured But Whole. Until I have everything figured out and I can post a tentative stream schedule, make sure to watch my twitter page since I always post when I’m streaming and when I’m finished if you want to watch me play. I’m also looking for game recommendations. If there’s anything you want to see me play and I actually already have it, just let me know in the comments section and I’ll try to fit it into one of my streams. Other than that I’ll let you know how things work out next week.

Life is Strange: Before the Storm – Episode 1 – Awake Review (PS4)

Life is Strange: Before the Storm

A few weeks after the reveal that there was a Life is Strange 2 in the works, that wouldn’t center around Max for understandable reasons, Life is Strange: Before the Strom was revealed at E3. To tell you the truth it was the highlight of my E3 and as soon as I was able to pre-order it I did so. I eagerly awaited the release of this game so much that I was totally into the whole countdown thing and then when I was finally able to play it, I played through the whole first episode without stopping.

In episode one, and throughout the whole three episodes, you’ll get to play as Chloe Price. Everyone who played Life is Strange already knows Chloe and knows what she’s been through, but this will take place three years before the arrival of Max. After not only losing her father, but also her best friend, she’s having trouble coping as a teenager and goes from being that normal teenager to one of the most angsty and rebellious teenagers around the town of Arcadia Bay. She’ll disobey her mother, hate her mother’s new boyfriend David, get into as much trouble as possible in school, and most importantly meet Rachel Amber. Episode one sets all of this up for the rest of the season. It shows how Chloe is making the transition into the person that we see her as in Life is Strange, minus the blue hair. While you don’t have the power to rewind time, I’m pretty sure your whit and sarcasm that can be used throughout the game will come back and bite you in the ass.

I really enjoyed this episode, I had one minor problem that I’ll address later, because it was nice and familiar to go back to a place before there was this huge storm threating it and there was a girl there who was able to rewind time. What was everything like before the arrival of Max and what was Chloe like before seeing her best friend again? This was all a very interesting dynamic to see in this first episode and I enjoyed the first real meeting between Chloe and Rachel Amber. This episode basically served as an introduction and I was completely fine with that because I liked exploring Chloe’s home life and interacting with familiar characters like Joyce and David while also exploring her school life and interacting with more familiar characters like Nathan Prescott and Victoria Chase. It was an interesting dynamic to see if they were the same people three years before the first game. Even though this episode was super long, I never found myself bored and was actually disappointed when it ended because I could have kept playing.

The Minor Problem I Mentioned The one and only problem I had with this game, which is pretty awesome, isn’t the fact that the same voice actress doesn’t play Chloe. I tried not to get involved with the whole voice actor strike drama, but the fact that I felt like I had to play Chloe a certain way. Chloe isn’t a blank slate like Max was. You could play Max to be any way you want her to be, but Chloe is different. She’s an already developed character and although you were given choices, I felt like I had to make what would be considered the wrong choices because I felt like that’s what made Chloe into what we see in Life is Strange. Make Sense? Anyway, if anyone else had this same problem, let me know in the comments section.

If you’ve played Life is Strange, then the playability for this game is basically the same. You’ll make your way through different scenarios and basically make decisions that will eventually come back and effect the episodes later on in the game. There were a few problems with the looking around portion of the game and trying to focus on an object or a person to either look at them or interact, but that was pretty minor. Other than that the game played bug and glitch free.

The graphics for this game were pretty simple and mimicked the graphics for the first game. They were really nothing to write home about and were just there. They didn’t feel special in anyway, but the main point is that they fit the game and the feel of the game so they worked.

Finish this game and graffiti your way through town in order to get the first 11 trophies for this game. By the end of the game if you do this for every single episode you’ll be able to get yourself a new Life is Strange platinum trophy. The trophies really aren’t hard to get and if you set out and explore you should be able to get all of them, I personally missed three, but if you don’t’ get all of them you can easily go back in collectible mode to clean up.

There is no multiplayer for this game, or even crowd play, which is all good to me. For a moment though, I did wonder about is this game would have multiplayer. What if someone else was controlling Rachel Amber. It would change the game completely and would be an interesting dynamic, but that being said it’s not like I would want to see that feature, just something that popped into my brain.

Overall I give this epiosde a 4.5 out of 5.

What’s Great:
+ Great introduction into Chloe three years before the arrival of Max.
+ An inside look into what Chloe and Rachel Amber’s first meeting was like and the relationship between the two girls that evolve from there.
+ As always a strong shout out to the soundtrack for this episode which was just amazing as the original Life is Strange soundtrack.

What’s Not So Great:
A few missteps when it came to focusing on an object and trying to interact with it.
Since Chloe is an already developed character, if felt like she had to be played a certain way and wasn’t a blank slate.

Overall I really enjoyed this episode and am looking forward to the episodes to come especially the farewell episode because of course I had to get the deluxe edition. I would say that so far, if you’re a fan of Life is Strange that you’ll want to play this game if only to get one more chance to see and actually play as Chloe before Life is Strange 2 comes out. I’m not too sure about the release schedule for this game so if you’re good with waiting and seeing when the next episode comes out go ahead and pick this game up now and playthrough the first episode because you won’t regret it. If you’re the type that wants to play all of the game when it’s all released then you’ll want to wait until everything is released.

SPOILERS! Below are my choices from the first episode.

What Happened to Monday Review

What Happened To Monday

I had started watching this movie during Hurricane Irma, but because of many interruptions, like the threat of tornados, I ended the movie about fifteen minutes in and decided to save it for another day. That Saturday finally came and I was able to sit down and actually watch this movie. I had waited a couple of weeks after the hurricane to actually watch this movie and was pretty eager to do so. Keep reading to see if it was worth the wait.

What Happened to Monday is set in the year 2073 where it is illegal to have more than one child, thanks to Nicolette Cayman, played by Glenn Close, who developed the Child Allocation Act. Climate change is in full swing and the world is overpopulated. This means that people having more than one child have to choose which child they want and put the other into cryo-stasis. Thirty years prior to 2073, a set of seven identical girls were born. While their mother died during child birth, their grandfather, played by Willem Dafoe, decides to take the seven girls and name them for each day of the week. During their childhood he’ll train them to be different while inside of their super-secret top of the line technology house, but when they leave the house on the day on the day of the week they’re named for they have to act like the same person. Cut to 2073 where each girl takes on the persona of Karin Settman, played by Noomi Rapace. Everything is going as planned with each girl having her own personality at home, but then being Karin Settman when they go out until Monday goes missing. Has someone found out about what they’re doing, which is highly illegal, or is something else going on? You’ll have to watch and find out in this gripping thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat until the end of the movie.

Wow was this movie awesome. I mean seriously, it was well worth the wait as the whole movie was just mind blowing. Just when you think you have it figured out and you know what happened to Monday, the whole thing changes and your mind is just blown. Like seriously, what a twist and what an ending. Anyway, without spoiling it, I will say that the movie is gripping and held my attention for the full time that it was on. I actually wished it was a little longer and would have concentrated on the girls childhood a little bit more along with a “normal” week before getting into the disappearance of Monday. Other than that, the movie was just perfect. It had a great mix of action and suspense along with a WTF ending just to make it even better.

The star of this movie is clearly Noomi Rapace as she plays seven different roles at once. At first I thought this was going to be awkward even though I am a huge Noomi Rapce fan, but I was completely wrong because she plays each part of Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Karin Settman to perfection. When all seven girls are in one place at one time, it’s amazing how she plays each different personality and makes it actually believable. That being said, I also thought that Glenn Close played the perfect villain to this movie because it was one of those roles where you think that she’s trying to help the world when really she’s not.

Overall I give this movie a 5 out of 5.

This movie was amazing and much better than a lot of the AAA movies that are out there today, yes I’m looking at you La La Land. If you have Netflix and want to watch a movie that will keep you guessing to the very end because every time you think you have something figured out you don’t, then this is the movie for you. The whole movie is filled with action and suspense and will have you on the edge of your seat. Definitely one of the Netflix originals that cannot be missed.

I Never Finished…The Simpsons Arcade Game…Because

The Simpsons Arcade Game

This game I remember playing originally at Nathan’s Arcade Section. In my younger days, my dad would surprise me with a trip to the arcade at least once a month, twice if I was lucky, and hand me a fistful of quarters. This was like gold to me and every single time I would run to the Simpsons Arcade Game hoping that no one else was playing it. Even then I didn’t want to play with some random person. That must relate to why I don’t like playing multiplayer all that much now. Anyway, I had seen this game on PSN and was tempted because I spent so many quarters on this game but passed it up until a friend asked me to play it with her so that we both had a nostalgia moment since she also played the arcade version. Unfortunately, it ended up on this list so keep reading to find out why.

In The Simpsons Arcade Game you get to play as a member of The Simpsons family including Bart, my personal favorite, Lisa, Homer, and Marge. It’s your job to rescue Maggie who has been kidnapped by Smithers. The Simpsons just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and while Smithers was robbing a bank, a diamond accidently ended up in Maggie’s mouth resulting in Smithers kidnapping her. The family will have to fight its way through various different levels in order to rescue Maggie and bring her home.

I really enjoyed this game, probably as much as I enjoyed it while playing the original Arcade game. It’s a fun, action packed 2D side scroller that has you beating up enemy after enemy in order to save Maggie. While on the Arcade mode, I was never able to make it to the end no matter how hard I tried, I finally made it to the end on the PSN version. I have to say it was well worth the wait that after all those years I was finally able to see the end of this game. Even though I finished it, I still never really finished it and by that I mean I never got all the trophies for this game. So like I said, a friend of mine wanted me to play with her so I did, but I ended up getting ditched and this game ended up being forgotten about as I moved on because I had no one to play with. While I did enjoy playing it, it was meant to play with someone else and when that disappeared so did my enjoyment for the game.

As you can see from the pictures above, I was able to get 5 out of the 12 trophies for this game. It’s not bad and all I really have to do is finish the game in under 30 minutes, play with all 4 characters, play with three other people, and some difficulty specific trophies. Not that many trophies and it probably could easily be accomplished in one day if I really tried.

Probability of this game getting played again…5 out of 5.

I know my backlog is huge, but I’ve been feeling a little nostalgic lately and I think it’s time to get back to this game and finally finish it because I know that I could. I also think it would be fun seeing that it’s been 5 years from when I originally downloaded it to start all over again and see how well I can actually do and if I can actually complete it to 100%.

Now it’s your turn. What did you think about this game? Did you also play the original arcade version before switching to the PSN version? Are you like me and didn’t finish this game? Maybe you’re looking for a multiplayer partner. If the servers are still active let me know and I’m willing to tag along and play a few games. Now for next week, a game that I really liked and the only thing that’s holding me back from the 100% is 4 trophies. Ugh! Anyway, next week I’ll let you know why I never finished Anomaly Warzone Earth.

This Week in Trophies 10-01-2017 – 10-07-2017

This week was an interesting one as at some points I had a lot of time for gaming and at other times I had no time for gaming. This is the time of the year when I’m really big into watching current TV shows, unlike the summer, and have to try and find some balance with my time. A lot of the time this means that my gaming gets cut short, but I feel like I accomplished a lot this week since I did get my 81st platinum trophy. Keep reading to see how my week went.

Shoppe Keep – 64%

I was able to get one trophy for this game this week and I seriously have no idea what the hell happened to this game after the latest patch. This game constantly keeps crashing over and over again during random sections, there’s a ton of lag, and overall it’s making for a really unenjoyable experience. No one has yet to get the platinum trophy for this game and while the appeal of being that first person is really strong, I hate the on going struggles with this game so I’ll play when I have a short period of time to play and am in need of something quick.

Batman: The Enemy Within – 40%

With the second episode finally being released this week, I was able to find some time to actually play the entire episode. My thoughts on the episode will have to wait until my full review which will be coming out shortly. If you’re interested I did do a let’s play for this episode which you can watch here.

Until Dawn – 100%

There you have it, platinum number 81. Very proud of that number at the moment. Anyway, last week I said I was going to play a horror game this October and I totally did and even got the platinum for it. Score one for me. Anyway, like with all games I finish, you’ll have to wait until my review to see what I thought about the game.

And that was it for the week. A nice 26 trophies compared to last week. Not bad, but not great. Now onto next week. Apparently the next episode of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: A Telltale Series comes out on Tuesday so I’ll be fitting that into my schedule for the week. Other than that I’m not sure. I want to do a Let’s Play video series for Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, but I’m just trying to find some time to actually get to it. Should have probably did that while I was actually playing. I also want to try and fit in a new game some time this week. We’ll see how the week goes and I’ll let you know next week.

MegaCon 2018 Hopes and Expectations

I have to say that after going to MegaCon for four years now that last year was the biggest one that I’ve ever been to. The attendance on Saturday alone was 400,000 people which is just an insane amount of people and it was really because they had an amazing line up this year. With MegaCon Tampa just wrapping up this past weekend, sadly I was unable to go because of work reasons and some other stuff, it has me looking forward to the future of MegaCon 2018 which is a definite for me. Anyway, I just thought it would be fun to list off a couple of people that I hope will be making an appearance at this years show.

I had no idea how to actually organize this list because when I think of MegaCon, a million people pop into my head and I want to see as many as possible, so I’m just going to run with my scattered brain thoughts and hopefully this doesn’t turn into a mess.

Game of Thrones – I want to see some sort of Game of Thrones presence at MegaCon. Lena Headey was supposed to do the show a few years back and cancelled last minute so it would be nice if they would be able to get her for the upcoming show. If not, I’m open to other big cast members who are either still alive on the show or have been killed off. I know that this year’s show had Elyes Gable who was on Game of Thrones for a really short amount of time, but I feel like that doesn’t really count.

X-Men Stars – So Famke Janseen was a huge surprise this year and it would be nice to start bringing some of the original cast of characters from the original X-Men movies along each year. It could kind of be like how they always have someone, anyone from Firefly at the show. This is what I’m hoping for this upcoming show.

Firefly – Since I just mentioned Firefly, I know that there will be some random cast member for Firefly, which would be great, but this year I’m really hoping for Nathan Fillion. I think he’s the only one that hasn’t made an appearance at MegaCon, but I would be excited to meet anyone from Firefly.

Lost Girl – I was a huge fan of this show and while it gets a lot of love in Canada and other conventions, it never gets any love at MegaCon and I would be thrilled if any of the cast members were to make an appearance at the upcoming show.

Once Upon a Time – With a lot of the original cast members moving on from the show, it would be nice to have some of them appear at MegaCon. MegaCon has never once had someone from this show and to get someone would be a definite highlight.

Gotham – How have we not gotten anyone from Gotham yet? We had some awesome cosplayers this past year, but seriously how have we not gotten an actual cast member? Anyone would do and hopefully for this upcoming show MegaCon could get someone, especially Robin Taylor who I adore as Penguin.

American Horror Story – I know there’s this big emphasis on The Walking Dead, but a lot of them cancel last minute and while it is nice to meet people from The Walking Dead, how about some American Horror Story people? I know it would be insanely hard to book Sarah Paulson or Evan Peters, but it would be nice.

The Walking Dead – So it isn’t MegaCon without someone from The Walking Dead, but this time let’s try to have people that are actually going to show up because they aren’t on the show anymore. As much as I would love to meet current cast members, I wouldn’t mind meeting cast members who have been killed off and can actually make the time to attend conventions.

Orange is the New Black – Once again this is one of those things where it’s hard to believe that we haven’t had someone from Orange is the New Black attend the show. At this point I would take anyone although I would kind of hope for Kate Mulgrew, I would be happy with anyone from this show.

Reunions – This years MegaCon was big on reunions with The Rocky Horror Picture Show and The Dukes of Hazzards. I kind of see a trend here and I’m all for it. As for reunion type people, I would love to see the cast of FarScape, Birds of Prey, and The Guild, even though we had Felica Day this year, at the upcoming show.

Voice Actors – There was a huge showing of voice actors this year and I absolutely loved it. This was seriously the best showing of voice actors that MegaCon ever had and I want to see this trend continue. As much as I enjoy meeting Jennifer Hale and would do so again if she just happened to be at the upcoming show, I would really like for them to branch out and bring aboard some other voice actors who are popular these days. A few that pop into mind for me are Laura Bailey, Courtney Taylor, Brandon Keener, Ashly Burch, Ashley Johnson, and Brian Bloom.

With this years show being Stan Lee’s last show, I really think that MegaCon has to bring it this time and I know that they can do so. My hopes for this upcoming show are high and it’s not even close to being time yet, but I’m super excited since they started announcing people at the end of October last year. Anyway, this is my wishlist for the event. If you’ll be attending next year’s MegaCon, drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know who you would want to see show up as a major announcement when the announcements start rolling out.
