What are ya Playin’ This Weekend?


Happy weekend gamers! I hope you get plenty of gaming in on this fine weekend.

I will be playing Kingdom Hearts 2.8. I am thoroughly enjoying it so far as I make my way through Dream Drop Distance. I will also be playing Pokemon Moon and get plenty of Overwatch time in.

That’s enough about me, what about you? What are you playing this weekend? Sound off in the comments below.

My Top 5 Video Games of 2016

Another year down, more video games to countdown. There was plenty to play in the year of 2016, but unfortunately I cannot play them all. Here are 5 of my most definite favorites though. Lets start with some honorable mentions:

Street Fighter V: Street Fighter V just missed the cut because it got off to a rough start. It got pushed out to the public a bit early and ultimately was an unfinished product. Capcom has been working hard to fix some of the issues with it and its now shaping up to be a pretty great game. The future of Street Fighter V is looking bright.

Dark Souls 3: I’ve never been that big of a fan of this series, but I was able to have quite a bit of fun with DS3. It wont make me like the Souls games over Bloodborne though. Still hoping a sequel will be made.

And the FINAL honorable mention goes to Final Fantasy XV. FFXV is a fantastic game, but it left more to be desired from me. We do know that Square-Enix has future DLC plans for the game, which is exciting.

Now for the Top 5: Continue reading

What Are Ya Playin’ This Weekend?

It’s finally here again gamers! It’s the weekend and I hope you are able to get plenty of game time in.


I will be playing quite a bit of Overwatch. That game has my undivided attention for the most part. I will also be playing Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel. I took a bit of a break from it back in February shortly after Street Fighter V came out. I dove back into it within this past week and I hate that I stopped playing. It is a very good RPG.


That’s enough about me, what about you? What are you playing this weekend? Sound off in the comment section.

Cross Your Fingers and Hope You Can Play Overwatch This Weekend


The first Overwatch, invite only,  beta test weekend starts this Friday. It will run from Friday, November 20th through Monday, November 23. Blizzard will be letting in “a lot” more players from the American and European regions.

Accounts will be flagged this Thursday, November 19th, during a scheduled maintenance. If you get flagged, it would be wise to go ahead and install the game so when the servers go live on Friday, you can just jump in.

Take a Look at the new Heroes of the Storm Arena Mode

Blizzard has a revealed a new way to play with the addition of the new Arena mode for Heroes of the Storm. It looks to be a all out brawl mode with no objectives, similar to Smite’s arena mode. Everyone can even play as the same hero in the arena. Check out the trailer below. There is even some shade thrown at IGN. Pay attention to see if you can spot it.

There is no word on when this mode will drop yet, but I suspect “soon.”
