Mortal Kombat 11 Launch Trailer Features Original Music

When MK11 was first shown there was a small clash between older and newer fans, and it was rather a dumb one. This is coming from a guy that played the original as a child when it released and remembered when MK11 almost killed gaming and was basically responsible for the creation of the ESRB when parents freaked over the blood that looked like spray paint. That clash was over the music and it not being the original music, which is now in the official launch trailer.

Seeing as how the story is about the past and present meet the music thing makes sense, and it really makes sense they didn’t suddenly just go back to the original music with the first trailer. While I am happy to see it back, maybe this will finally make some of them stop complaining about it. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.


Anno 1800 Open Beta Review

It has truly been a long time since I played an Anno game. I am talking early 2000’s long time. I didn’t really know what to expect coming into this, but it was free and I will always check out a free game or beta when I have the time.

The beta starts off with you needing some money to get home to your sister so you use dynamite to blow up some fish. This will teach you how to use items and move the ship around, and it made me chuckle so that was fun. After this, it is a quick sail home to shock your friend and servant whose life you saved at some point with the fact that you are rich which will admittedly annoy him since you were just blowing up fish for cash and sleeping in barns while you and your family own an island and hundreds if not thousands of buildings.

Turns out dear old dad died in prison after being accused of treason and your sister needs your help to not only clear his name, but build a new empire and deal with your jackass uncle. I won’t go further into the story they shared because it does go along with the game they will be releasing but you will be attempting to unravel a pretty in-depth conspiracy it seems, and it did have me quite interested and I was a little disappointed to see it end.

As for the gameplay and graphics, both were smooth and offered me no problems even on my laptop even on medium settings. Building your town feels fluid and offered no problems and I never really felt like I didn’t know what was going on. Each building is explained pretty well and I didn’t really have to ask how they worked which I appreciated. The full release is looking like it will be worth buying. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Borderlands: Game of The Year Edition

Coming April 3rd and The unfortunate victim of some huge technical issues at PAX East we instead got to listen to people working on the game tell us a few things, for example, it will be in 4k and it moved from being 2 player co-op to 4 player split screen. Luckily you can now find all the details in the trailer on youtube (Down Below) and below that, I will include the Handsome Jack Collection update as well. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.


Finally, Borderlands $@!&’in 3

I think the title says it all, PAX East saw the reveal trailer for Borderlands 3, and I am excited. We saw some bad guys, Tiny Tina less tiny, found out there will be over a billion guns (Yes with a B) and at least one will have legs. Don’t believe me, watch the trailer below and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Streets Of Rage 4 Teases New Characters

Finally a new gameplay trailer for Streets of Rage 4, and it is a good one tho it is a bit short. At the end tho you can see Axel and Blaze who were also in the trailer and the outline of two unknown characters. Who they are and what their roles will be are obviously quite unknown, as is much else about the game. I do however really appreciate that the graphics and sound have that old school feel but look quite updated and I can’t wait to get my hands on it. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Dora The Explorer Trailer

First, here is the trailer. I know a lot of you probably didn’t watch it because it is a movie based off a show for 5-year-olds. So, please watch it so everything  I say makes sense.

Okay first it is a Nickelodeon movie, its a bit silly and we all knew that was coming. Eva Longoria is still a good looking woman as expected and Micheal Pena is great. Cool, we are covered. Moving on, why the hell does Dora have what appears to be dynamite, rock climbing equipment and a flair in school? Also, this kid has a giant knife in school? Seriously I own a similar knife, you could take an arm off with that thing, legitimately.

I watched this show with my kids, she wondered around singing songs with her backpack and a map, now she is going to knife poor Swiper, and I hate to admit I kind of want to see it. Why you may ask because this movie is going to either be fun or a train wreck and either way that will be interesting. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Persona 5: The Royal

Persona 5: The Royal is the newest Persona revealed by Atlus. It’s a short video, only 45 seconds but reveals a new female character that seems to disapprove of the actions of the Phantom Thieves. Enjoy the video below and a rough translation from gematsu below that.

A short teaser commercial debuted following today’s Persona 5 the Animation: Stars and Ours broadcast. In it, a voice asks, “What do you think of the Phantom Thieves?” A new female character responds, “I think helping people is a wonderful thing, but if I had to say, I don’t like them. I don’t think the Phantom Thieves’ methods will make the world a better place or help anyone. In the end, I feel like you can only solve that yourself.”
