Hey guys. I’m going to be doing some live streaming on Twitch TV late tonight.
It will be at 11PM CST. We will be playing some PS4 games. And it will be a party. Except it won’t.
Dear Gamers on a Budget,
Like you, I am not rich. Saying that, apparently people who make video games think we are. In the old days that my dad used to speak of, games costed $5 at best. Well maybe, I don’t actually know. All I know is it’s cheaper than what video games are selling these days. A new CoD game costs $60. $60! In the times we live in, that costs a lot for just a disc that let’s you shoot people. Now for some people, they’ll pay the price for their Halo 15’s and their Call of Duty 28’s, but for other’s, they can’t. Timed are tough, and to some people spending $60 on a game will mean none left for their Ramen Noodles money. They can’t afford it. Their only option is to wait a year, if they’re lucky, for it to become half price, but by then Battlefield 42 is out and they’ll feel sad because they can only get Battlefield 41.
But now, there is something beautiful. And it’s called Humble Bundle. If you don’t know what it is, then you’re going to be so happy when I tell you. It’s a wonderful website where you can awesome games such as Mark of the Ninja, Limbo, Fez, and much more. Each Bundle comes with 4-9 awesome games. And how much does it cost, you ask. We’ll this is the great part. However much you want to pay. You can pay from $1-$1000 on these games. Any amount you choose. Now you’re probably wondering, what’s the catch? Is there some hidden fee or is it going to send me spam emails. Nope and nope. No hidden fee. No spam. It’s wonderful. And you probably think that’s it. How can it get any better? We’ll it can, because some or your money goes to charity.
And your mind just exploded.
How it works is you tell it how much you want to pay, then let’s you split up the money on how much you want to give to the developers, the charities, and the tip for Humble Bundle. It goes to charities like Child’s Play that help kids in hospital and other stuff like that.
So to recap, you can spend as much as you like on 4-9 games, and your money goes to charity. What are you waiting for. GET HUMBLE BUNDLE NOW!
Ever since E3, (The biggest gaming expo ever if you’re not a nerd like me and didn’t know) there has been a big console war between the PS4 and XBOX One (Apparently Microsoft thought it would be a good idea to name their console like a movie prequel). Both are pretty cool. Of course, they both have their own advantages.
PS4 is significantly cheaper, being $100 less than the XBOX One (Wow, I just realized that I’m really going to hate calling the new XBOX that). You can also share gameplay using the share button on the controller and even get help from your friends if your in a pickle in a certain part of a video game.
The XBOX One has some cool features too. You can multitask similar like on Windows 8 by using the new Kinect. Speaking of Kinect, holy cow. That thing looks pretty cool. People have been hating on it, but to me, that thing looks beast. Though since I haven’t really tried it yet, I don’t know how well it works, or if I’ll actually use it after the first week. The XBOX One will also let you be able for you to record your gameplay, such as like the PS4 let you.
So, when it all comes down to it, here are my opinions on the big console war. Idk. Why I say that is it’s not really up to me to decide which console I get. It’s really up to which console my friends like more, because those are the people that will be playing it. I don’t want a console just to find out that my friends are playing another different console. I’ll be all alone. My friends will be playing Halo while I play [Insert PS4 title here] or visa versa. And maybe my friends will stick with their current consoles for now. I got my XBOX 360 only two years ago, and XBOX Live only for one year. Give me a while before I switch to multi-hundred dollar console.
A few weeks ago, I let my friend play Skyrim. He played the first part, with the dragon somehow not killing him. Then he went over to Riverwood to escape something or something that I can’t remember. Well, instead of causing no suspicion, he does something quite… Displeasing. He went to this elderly lady and well, she was kinda sassy. Well, as she started yapping, saying oh how “Oh, my husband is a pig.” he pulled his sword into a swinging like moment, then the sword came closer and closer until- a clean cut was made. And of course, somehow everyone from Riverwood comes with swords and axes. My friend goes and evades into the river and kills some guards. I’m thinking that,
Why did you have to kill that poor, sweet (Okay, not really), defenseless Grandma.
I mean come on. Then he even killed the children. THE CHILDREN!!! You could have been saving the world by many apocalypses, but instead you hurt children. Poor, defenseless, children. And the one thing that was so wrong about the whole thing about that was… He was hogging the controller.
Now when our XBOX is on and we’re looting people and attacking Cat/Humans, it doesn’t come to mind that Skyrim can teach stuff to you. But it can. And I’m talking to you Drunk Uncle Dan. You have so much stuff, I’m not surprised you have already suffocated-wait, someone’s calling. Hold on a minute. [What is it. My uncle died? Really! WAHOO! Take that! I’m free! FREE!] Okay, I’m back. So anyway, Skyrim teaches you on how not to be a hoarder. Like when you take all your stuff to on a journey. See how you like it when your Grandma laughing a you because she can outrun you. That goes to show, you can’t take everything on a journey. And you can’t keep everything in your house. So if you have a hoarder (Or drunk uncle) who has a PS3 or XBOX, give them this game. It might change their life.
