Gamers: The Sims 4

lfoxttz

I love the Sims and have every one of their previous releases. I know most people are aware of the game but if you aren’t, let me break down the gameplay. You basically create people and navigate them through their life.

Now EA has truly gone the next level by announcing that the Sims will be more genuine and true to life than ever before. They now not only have emotions but the emotions will be dynamic. This means they will be able to interact with each other and their world as we would.

There has been so much announced so far that I can’t even begin to get into all the details. It’s due out early 2014 but you can preorder now.

Gamers: Watch Dogs

My second pick in my gaming series is a new title from Ubisoft due for release Nov 15th. Watch Dogs is an open world action-adventure game, which will be available for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U and Xbox 360. From what I can tell, it will become a great franchise title for the developer.

According to the official site this is the storyline for the game.

Set in Chicago, where a central network of computers connects everyone and everything, Watch_Dogs explores the impact of technology within our society. Using the city as your weapon, you will embark on a personal mission to inflict your own brand of justice.

Chicago’s overarching network is known as the Central Operating System (ctOS), and it controls almost all of the city’s technology and information – including key data on all of the city’s residents.

You play as Aiden Pearce, a brilliant hacker and former thug, whose criminal past led to a violent family tragedy. While seeking justice for those events, you’ll monitor and hack those around you by manipulating the ctOS from the palm of your hand. You’ll access omnipresent security cameras, download personal information to locate a target, control traffic lights and public transportation to stop the enemy… and more.

Gaming: GTA V

In case I have failed to mention this before, I’m a gamer. I love titles that not only immerse me in the story but offer responsive and dynamic gameplay. Which bring us to my topic. What games are the must haves? Well, there are several companies rolling out new titles soon and I want to mention the one’s I’m looking forward to. My first selection is GTA V by RockStar.

My brother and I have played all the previous versions and have never been disappointed with what RockStar does with this franchise. My favorite thing to do is cause enough havoc to have both the police and military after me. LOL. It’s a very therapeutic game and allows you to release stress by doing things you would NEVER do in real life.

Unlike the previous releases, we no longer play as one main character. This time around, we have a main story that revolves around three protagonists, each having an individual story that intersects with the others.

•Michael: Ex-bank robber living lavishly in witness protection with his family.
•Trevor: Trailer trash with a bad and spontaneous attitude.
•Franklin: Young gun taking his career path to a new level.

The story takes place in a fictional version of Los Angeles and offers online play as well. With all the improvements in gameplay, this is a title that all hardcore gamers must pick up. Release date is SEPT 17th! Be warned, the game previews include violence and strong language and may offend some people.

The Walking Dead Season 4: Official Promo

God, I’m so psyched for the show to start. It’s been horrible waiting patiently for the new season to begin. I hope Daryl’s character lives through the season or I’m going to be pretty upset. I was already bummed out when Merle died. He was an interesting character to say the least. New season, new head writer. Should be epic!
