Struggle bus Mondays: Red Dead Redemption 2

struggle bus

Hey everyone, today’s struggle bus is brought by Red Dead Redemption 2; if you still have not bought yourself a copy–you are severely missing out. Red Dead Redemption 2 is a masterpiece: the look and feel of the game are absolutely breathtaking.

Rockstar remained true the classic and kept the favorably features such as: Dead eye, the weapons/inventory wheel, and about a billion side quest.

However, Red Dead has added a few additions to the, otherwise, stellar game-play. For one, you hold down the middle button of the controller to experience a cinematic view to the gameplay–adding a little spaghetti western to the game.

Missions outside the main story, you can accept or deny them as they are presented to you.  And I don’t mean, as galloping along a vacant-dirty road and you decide to just stroll-on past the farm-boy being torn to strides by a pack of wolves. Rather, if you are stopped while on your way to mission, because one of your fellow members is about to be lynched for robbing stagecoaches and finger-banging the sheriff’s pregnant daughter; you can say ” fuck you” and go rabbit hunting.

Another thing is: you have to monitor your health and stamina–your horse as well.(it drains over time)

In addition to the inventory wheel, a satchel is also necessary and you are also allowed store weapons on the horse saddle. Ultimately, you can carry as many or as little you desire.

The graphics are extraordinary. Red Dead even allows you t change the main character’s hair style as well as…the beard. From Wyatt Earp to Clint Eastwood; only a button mash away.

Those of you that own the game then you understand Red Dead Redemption 2 is worth the 8 year wait.

If you don’t…click here and yourself a copy.

Struggle bus Monday: Red Dead Redemption 2.

If you know me, you know I love me some Red Dead Redemption. The original Red Dead, like any other game published under Rockstar, will be a shoe for game of the year nominee.

The makers of the Grand Theft Auto series have a long and lustrous history of providing players with countless of entertainment, side-mission and compelling character development. Giving its loyal fan-base enough lubricant to be cleared for landing, Rockstar, by my account, always delivers the A1 steak sauce to the gaming community.

I’m only a few hours in. (the game was released Friday, as of today). I’m blown away.

Stay tuned for the full review.

Struggle bus Monday: Friday the 13th the game.

struggle bus

All aboard the struggle everybody. Today’s entry on Struggle Bus Monday will have to go under the “guilty pleasure” checkbox of my gamer bucket list. Simply because, it is game that has an ideal concept, especially, if the game is based on a movie and the hysteria surrounding the movie prompts you to obsessively check the releases date on said game; as if your waiting for the hot blonde to text back, after getting her number, only four hours ago. For example: Predator concrete jungle. Garbage.

Today’s game is: Friday the 13th the game. I know what your thinking–on paper: the concept behind this genius, and in truth, it is a decent game: minus the character flaws.

It’s like the Blair Witch of the gaming industry: so much hype for a big let down. Clunky game play, terrible server connection; the A.I. for the counselors is none existent, I mean, you’ll see them hopping in and out of the same window. (clearly within sight of Jason).  The developer put a lot of thought in the environment and it shows, however, it still don’t make up for some failings in this game. The big thing is the multiplayer, where you can stalk and reenact classic  kill scenes, to perfect from across the globe–if you can get server to work.

Check out the video below…these guys are dope.

 

 

 

Dishonored 2

Struggle  Bus Mondaysstruggle bus

 

Hey everyone, today is “Struggle Bus Monday. And today, I’m showcasing my struggle of the week, with one of my favorite games: Dishonored 2. Though, I purchased the trilogy combo pack because it’s cheaper; I still would have doubled-down and bought the  single copy had the collector’s edition not been available.

Set in the city of Dunwall and Karnace, After being rescued following the assassination of her mother, Emily Kaldwin reclaims her rightful place as heir to the throne; only after the strategic planning by the royal protector, Corvo. Aiding with the help of the rebellion, Corvo was able reestablish order throughout the kingdom, after the defeat of the current Lord Regent: Hiram Burrows.

What I truly love and adore about the Dishonored franchise is, not only, the open world, rather it’s the lateral gameplay. Giving players the freedom to pick whichever approach works for them–choosing from an endless supply of options at your disposal, through the channels of free-roam gameplay. Whether or not you kill the antagonist’s loyal henchmen is strictly up to you. But where’s the fun in that.

The power you obtain from the interdimensional being called The Outsider, enhances gameplay so much; hence, my angst. Stringing together combos of transmorphic-telekinetic powers from the nether-realm, corresponding with with revolutionary army dress code/ weaponry with a retractable sword and a cross bow.

Below, are videos demonstrating a highlight of death from the youtuber “Stealthgamerbr”, by all means, if you love the game, watching this guy play may cause death by haterade posioning.
