Recap for Nintendo Direct 2.13.2019

recently Nintendo has their direct showing off new games that’s coming this year and here’s a summary of what went on in the direct.

Super Mario maker two is coming and it will be released in June

Legend of Zelda Link’s Awakening is getting a remake

Tetris 99 is out now to play where you can go against 99 players.

Fire emblem three houses was delayed and is now releasing on the July 26th

Astral chain it’s a new game made by Platinum game and is being supervise by Hideki Kamiya (the creator of Devil May Cry, Viewtiful Joe, Bayonetta and many more 

😍

Marvel ultimate alliance 3 show off new characters iron fist, Captain Marvel, storm, as playable characters 

These are some of the ones that stuck out to me there was more but if you would like to watch the whole direct I have the video below. 

Stand by for…..Apex legends?

Out of nowhere respawn entertainment launched a new game called Apex Legends. A free to play Battle Royale game like pubg and fortnite 

and the craziest thing is it already made 10 million players in just three days (now 25 million)

for those of you who don’t know who respawn is they’re the same people who brought it us the original modern warfare 1 and 2 games but also loudest Titanfall 1 and 2 which if you have never played Titanfall to I highly recommend it has one of the best single player campaigns I played in a long time.

In this article, it also talks about how it be fortnite milestone which took two weeks for them to get to that player base. Vince Zampella respawn CEO said that “we knew it would be a list to take the franchise in this direction go free-to-play and do a surprise launch… But we fell in love with Apex legends and wanted, needed, other people to play it, too”

Is it good to hear that respawn is doing well after the commercial failings of Titanfall 2 after it being stuck around a heavy launch window with the release battlefield 1 and call of duty infinite warfare (thanks a lot EA) and even though I would have preferred a Titanfall 3 at least respawn is getting the recognition that they deserve.

Stop Stealing dance move!

Oh epic games just when you think you doing good something terrible has to happen to ruin your parade

Earlier this week news has came out that Alfonso Riberio (also known as Carlton from The fresh Prince of Bel-Air) is suing epic games for stealing his dance move The Carlton and not giving him credit for it

But it’s not only him Russel Horning also known as backpack kid had his mom file a lawsuit for not giving him credit as well.

A article about the story is right here. I don’t know what epic games was thinking of not asking these guys permission to take there dance moves but now they have to pay the consequences for it…. Well at least they got money from all those DLCs right

Ads in video game?

Capcom buddy what’s going? ever since Monster Hunter world and the announcement of Devil May cry 5 at resident evil 2 remake I’ve been praising them for turning over a new leaf and reminding us why they’re one of the best video game companies But you blew it you really blew it by putting ads while you’re playing game.

If you don’t know Street fighter 5 arcade edition have feature ads play throughout the whole entire game to promote their tournament called Capcom pro tour and it’s pretty annoying because it constantly pops up throughout the game.

A video and an article about the whole fiasco is right here

In their defense you can turn it off and most people won’t care about this because they already moved on to bigger and better games but it still sucks to see this because Street fighter 5 has gotten better after having a lackluster beginning.

They are consequences for not listening…

One of my favorite developers is BioWare the reason being is because they’ve always had Rich story, interesting lore, and most importantly memorable characters.

(Garris is the best wingman/bro you can ever ask for)

The newest game Anthem is going to be a very big departure then what they’re usually doing because this is going to be an always online drop-in drop-out co-op game similar to like Destiny is

Recently BioWare and their publisher EA announced that there will be a close alpha beta for a handful of people people who signed up. and there was one player who got in and literally forgot one of the basic rules of an NDA (non-disclosure agreement) don’t break said rule and now he paying for it.

So since he broke the rules they can no longer play any EA origin games library after breaking said rules as a full article explaining situation right here

No word if the player will get back his account I will say it is kind of harsh that EA blocked all his games and he can’t use them anymore just for broke the rule and started streaming the alpha. On the other hand that’s what happens when you break the rules, you get banned.

My Final Blog Post…. Farewell

Well is that time of the semester again. Where I have to get prepare for finals by panicking.

Also, it’s a time to reflect on all the things I accomplish from joining through CT101

I really did enjoy CT101 member first time being in the classroom I was so nervous because it was a whole new environment but professor Rseslow really ease me in to things

I learned how to make my own gif (which is pretty badass) 

But I think my favorite lesson I’ve learned was creating my own gif portfolio and talking about my idol Spider-Man because not only was I was able to make this cool little gif by myself but I get to show appreciation for a character that inspired me over the years.

Another thing I loved about our class is my personal website called Gamers may care and on this website I mostly focus on gaming news. Honestly, it made me feel like I was a news reporter.

but the reason I loved it so much is that finally got to talk about something I’m very passionate about which is video games and the video game industry so having a website dedicated to that what’s fun.

As for what I’m going to do with it after this semester. I think it’s pretty obvious that I’m going to keep it up and running because I love talking about video games and reporting on it I hope to eventually dabble into expanding it and allowing other people to post their own video game news and maybe review them. The sky’s the limit on what my website to do

Lastly, as for what grade I deserve judging by how much effort I put into my website how and how much effort I put into assignments I would say I believe I deserve a (B+) because I put in a lot of hard work into my website, in particular, keeping up on all the latest news that happened in gaming and also making sure that I gave enough information for those who don’t are unfamiliar with gaming. However, I only say a “B+” if I’m being honest with myself I know I could do better I know I could probably write more in some of the blog posts and I feel like the vaporware assignment could have been better.

Overall I enjoyed my time CT101 in many ways it helped me Express my love for video games and taught me various skills like gif that I will use to harass my friends

So thank you Professor Seslow for showing me so much and for all your encouragement. You are truly blessed

Dad of War is game of the year

So around the time when god of war came out there was this great video on YouTube of Corey balrog seeing reviews 

To me that video stood out because it showed that even video game designers are humans to and as much as we gamers give them shit sometimes for not doing stuff right when they make a great product we praise them.

with all that being said God of war took home 3 awards from the game awards show. one of them was best game direction another one was Best Action/Adventure Game

And most importantly they took home game of the year

I’m extremely happy to hear that it won game of the year because I remember in an interview Corey balrog (game director) talking about there was one moment where him and his team felt like the game wasn’t coming together and they felt like giving up but they pulled through and now they’ve won game of the year and it was well deserved good job 

👍

All that blood sweat and tears paid off now where’s my God of War 2 BOY

Honestly red Dead redemption 2 basically took every single award and it sucks because Spider-Man didn’t get anything which makes me kinda sad 🙁

And that’s pretty much it but hmm something feels off like something’s missing….

It’s time for Kombat!!!

So during the game awards show there was a segment where Ed boon the co-creator of Mortal Kombat came out and was giving a reward for best racing game.

I knew something was up because why would you get the creator of mortal Kombat just giving award unless you’re about to reveal something…..

and sure enough I was right Mortal Kombat 11 is coming soon very soon in fact.

The game will be released April 23rd but if you want to see the game play he has to wait until January 17th to see the reveal

There is not much known about the game but based off of the trailer description this is so far of what we know.

“Mortal Kombat is back and better than ever in the next evolution of the iconic franchise. The all new Custom Character Variations give you unprecedented control to customize the fighters and make them your own. The new graphics engine showcasing every skull-shattering, eye-popping moment, brings you so close to the fight you can feel it. And featuring a roster of new and returning Klassic Fighters, Mortal Kombat’s best in class cinematic story mode continues the epic saga over 25 years in the making.”

Original Track “Immortal” by 21 Savage

If you pre-order now you’ll get access to the multiplayer beta and Shao Kahn as a playable character

mortal Kombat was my first rated m game I’ve ever played so to have a new entry in the series is pretty cool and exciting.

Trailers….. Trailers everywhere

The Game awards was boring but there was a lot of trailers there… It was raining trailers.

Some of the trailers that caught my eye was…

A teaser trailer for Dragon age 4

Looking forward to it because I haven’t played dragon age game since Inquisition so it’s good to see the series return

Marvel ultimate alliance 3 it’s coming exclusively for the Nintendo switch
