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

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.

Happy Friday gamers! It’s been a while since “What are ya playin,” has made an appearance, but its back! Heck, it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything, but I took an unintentional break from writing, but lets talk some video games.

I will be working on keeping my cool while trying to play Dark Souls 3. I have beaten 5 bosses so far so I am making progress! I will also be playing the Overwatch Beta and will be squeezing some Street Fighter V in as well.

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.

Check out the Overwatch Blog for more details.

The Prices For Overwatch Have Been Officially Announced. Tracer Coming to Heroes of the Storm.

Blizzard announced at Blizzcon that the base price, on PC only, will be $40. The premium version “Origins,” will come with character skins and some “digital goodies.” Overwatch Origins will be available for PC, XB1, and PS4 for a price of $60. Both version will include a total of 21 heroes and I’m sure more will be added as dlc.

Look for Overwatch to drop Spring 2016. Here is a new trailer for the Origins edition.

Looks Like Overwatch is also Coming to Consoles

Gamestop spilled the beans today by reporting that Overwatch is indeed headed for consoles as well as PC. The game will be a full priced $60 game and it is available to pre-order as of today. This shoots down the biggest question of whether Overwatch was going to be a free to play game.

As of right now, Overwatch has a place holder date of December 31,2016 and is available for PC, Xbox One, and PS4. We will find out more from Blizzcon this coming weekend. Now excuse me as I go back to hoping I get in the closed beta sometime very, very soon.

Hello and Happy Halloween gamers! It’s also the weekend and I hope you are able to get some game time in as well.

If I have time between the 2 parties I will be attending this weekend, I will try and play some Battleborn. The queue times have been ridiculously long but I want to see if I can break though this weekend. I still have my fingers crossed in hopes that I get into the Overwatch beta as well, otherwise I will be playing some Destiny, Heroes of the Storm and possibly some Halo 5. My feelings about Halo 5 are still up in the air.

I may return to my play through of The Evil Within. We’ll see though. P.T. ruined me.

That’s enough about me, what about you? What are you playing this weekend?
