What Are ya Playin’ This Weekend?

thegeekdojo.wordpress.com

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 continuing my journey in Metal Gear Solid V I’m still pretty early in the game, for the most part. Between missions I always end up doing all of the side-ops, and upgrading everything I can, and just goofing off in Afghanistan. Something tells me that I will be playing this game for quite a while. I will also be playing Heroes of the Storm, of course. Hopefully, if I have enough playing time, I will stream as well.

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

Come to the Dark Side With This Darth Vader Inspired PS4

 

The system will be available November 17th and will be available in two different bundles. For the hardcore gamers, you can pick up the Star Wars: Battlefront bundle. If you want the system with a more family friendly game, then you can pick up the Disney Infinity 3.0 bundle.  

The system itself has a 500gb hdd and comes with a custom themed controller as well. If you’re a huge Star Wars fan and in the market for a PS4 later this year, this is the one to get. I, for one, would at least like the controller. Check out Playstation Blog for more info on the bundles.

Vega Returns in Street Fighter V

geekdojo.wordpress.com

“Let my beauty intoxicate you.”

The Spanish ninja makes his return to the series. Vega is one of the 8 original world warriors and seems deadlier than ever.

Vega looks to play differently, yet the same, this time around. The Flying Barcelona, his signature move, is still part of his move set, but he seems so much more stylish this time around. He is a matador and with his play style in SFV, Capcom seems to have really captured the elegance and grace of a matador with the spins Vega does during his combos. Just because he moves so smoothly, doesn’t mean the Spaniard isn’t just as deadly. He can be seen throwing a barrage of claw slashes during his deadly combos in the video below.

With the latest edition of Vega, that brings the current roster up to 9 characters. It’s to see you back Vega.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Gets a New Game Plus mode Soon

thegeekdojo.wordpress.comOne of the best games of 2015 so far is getting even better. CD Projekt Red just announced on their Facebook page that The Witcher 3 will be getting a new game plus mode. This is perfect for people like myself that want to play it again at some point in the future. Just like all of the previously released DLC, it will be free. There is no word on when it will come out, because it is still in development, but it should be pretty soon.

This game just keeps getting better and better.

It’s finally here again gamers! It’s the weekend! Hopefully you are able to get some good playing time in.

I will be playing plenty of Heroes of the Storm, as usual. It is my addiction now if you didn’t know already. It pretty much makes the list every weekend. I will hopefully be squeezing in some Ultra Street Fighter, Destiny, and Super Smash Bros WiiU too. Unfortunately the Street Fighter V beta didn’t launch so well, otherwise I would be playing that all weekend. I will also be doing some live streaming as well so be sure to tune in and hangout with me.

So that’s enough about me, what about you? What game(s) are you playing this weekend.

Street Fighter V Beta Starts Today [Updated]

thegeekdojo.wordpress.com“Gonna burn some muscle!”

Update: The Street Fighter V beta has been temporarily taken down. The beta launched with issues from the start, with people saying they couldn’t log in at all. 

This really should be to no ones surprise. The game is in fact a beta, so problems are bound to happen. I got to play for 10 glorious minutes before I was kicked out to the start screen for the umpteenth time. Stay tuned to find out when the SFV beta goes back online. 

Original Story: The SFV beta will run for 5 days and it starts tonight! I have read that the beta will go live at 9pm EST. Be sure to check your email for your beta code, if you haven’t already, so you can pre-load the game. Keep in mind that this beta is only testing online capabilities and dlc delivery so there are no extra network capabilities like local play or playing online with friends. This is the first of 3 betas so I’m sure we will get more network capabilities as time goes on. I hope you’re just as excited as  I am. Enjoy the beta because I know I will.

I will also be streaming the beta later this evening so if you’re missing out on the beta, come hangout with me over on my Twitch channel under the Geek Dojo TV tab. It should be some fun times.

It’s finally here again gamers! It’s the weekend! Hopefully you are able to get some good playing time in.

I will hopefully be getting back into Destiny again. I need to level up my Titan to max level. I’ve been behind for quite while. I had to be carried through the Crota hard mode raid at level 30. Plenty of Heroes of the Storm will be played as well so if you want to party up in that, let me know. I’m level 40 now and starting to gear up for some Hero League.

Evo 2015 also kicked off today and it should be another great year for the F.G.C. I will definitely be tuning in to that was well all weekend.

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

New Street Fighter V Mechanics, Stages, Screen Shots, and Video Released Today

Capcom has released a new video about Street Fighter V today and it explains the new V-Gauge and V-Skill mechanic.

According to the latest issue of ShortList.com‘s gaming magazine, as you take damage during a match the V-Gauge fills. Using some of your V-Gauge, you can do special moves like the double fireball Chun-li throws in previous videos.

We’ve also learned about the new V-SKill mechanic. This is more of a defensive mechanic that allows certain characters to parry, deflect projectiles.

Special moves have also gotten a name change. Called Ultras in SFIV, in SFV they are called Critical Arts. These special moves are activated by a full EX gauge and are still the flashy, dynamic camera, multi-hit combo moves that we all know and love.

Last but not least, 2 new stages are now known: China and London’s King Cross Station. King’s Cross Station can be seen in a flurry of beautiful new screen shots after the jump.

Street Fighter V arrives on PC and PS4 March 2016
