The Crazy Ones Premiere

So I watched the premier of The Crazy Ones starring Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar the other night....that show is gonna fail! 
Kelly Clarkson was the most entertaining part of the show, Robin Williams shtick is tired, and there was zero chemistry between him and Sarah Michelle Gellar. 
The only reason I watched this is because my wife likes Kelly Clarkson, so I paused GTAV and sat through this....I want my 30 mins back!

The Walking Dead season 4 in two weeks!

14 days till TWD returns!!! Check your DVR's  set the priority to the highest, make sure you have space available.

My Los Santos Picture log

I've been playing GTA V for about two weeks now, there is just so much to see and do it's hard to actually focus on the story missions!
If you are a member of the R* Social Club you have access to use the in game phone's camera app to snap pics from around Los Santos.
I've taken a few so far just some funny billboards and one pic from inside Lesters house and one of Trevors trailer.

Drakengard 3 TGS 2013 trailer

I never played the first two Drakengard games but I'd certainly like to check this series out after seeing this trailer!
Chicks with roman numerals on their forehead, blood, and dragons....sold!

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes TGS Gameplay demo

So here's 12 minutes of MGS V Ground Zeroes game play footage from TGS, for the most part it looks like the stealth gameplay style we're accustomed to in Metal Gear Solid, I hope the "tagging system" is for easy/very easy settings only!
My one major question is if Ground Zeroes leads up to the destruction of Mother Base and is the prologue to The Phantom Pain why doesn't Big Boss just use the Fulton Recovery system to extract the POW?!
The CQC system looks to be reworked, with a branching display of choices once an enemy is grabbed.
The weather effects are very impressive! The AI looks very aggressive once in alert status, the counter that goes from Alert to Caution seems to be gone...or maybe Big Boss avoided the alert by inhaling some slowmo....>:/

Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD remaster TGS 2013 trailer

Here's the third trailer for FFX / FFX-2 HD Remaster coming this winter for PS3 and PS Vita!
So many reasons why next gen can wait!

GTA V My first week in Los Santos

The last time I did a midnight launch for a game was for COD MW2, I'm also at a point in my life where day one purchases aren't crucial. I'm willing to wait for a price drop, yeah I know the negatives to doing that for online multiplayer. But this time I really wanted to get GTA V day one! So I headed over to my local GS at 10PM to get a group number, that took about an hour then headed home to return at 11:45PM. Once the doors reopened at 12:01 I was in and out by 12:10, got home and played till about 2 in tha morn.
I had a bucket list of things I wanted to do before jumping into story missions, one was getting to the peak of Mount Chiliad, the second was to circumnavigate the entire map of Los Santos. I've done both, now to successfully hijack a 747 and fly the friendly skies....
So Franklin has traveled 143.42 miles, 106.44 by car, I've spent $275 on car mods, $2,344 on Guns and ammo, $130 in the Vanilla Unicorn Strip club, $60 on healthcare. Michael has traveled 49.05 miles and 32.38 by car, I've spent $2,350 on car mods, $60 on haircuts, $1,180 on healthcare and $20 on property.

I've been working on Michael's backhand with and without a racket in his hands ;) I've played 7 games of tennis, won 3, lost 4.

I just completed the Long Stretch mission...I sense a little hostility brewing between Franklin and Lamar & Stretch....

I've logged about 12 hours on GTA V so far and I think I can say without a doubt the cast of GTA V is much more enjoyable than Niko Belic and his annoying ass cousin! The city is also much more "alive" with so many types of NPCs and ambient conversations...I actually found myself tailing some NPC's just to listen to their conversations.
The map is HUGE!!! And with most of the map blank aside from the city of San Andreas it begs to be explored!
I'm lookin' forward to setting up a crew with my friends for GTA online when it finally launches next month!

The Evil Within TGS 2013 trailer

So after seeing this new trailer all I could think was, "So this is what the RE series could've evolved into! The dialog seemed on par with RE1....but then again the atmosphere in RE1 spoke for itself. This game looks scary as shit!

TGS 2013 9/19-9/22

This years TGS is Sept 19-22 and the theme is Games: Limitless Evolution
I'm hoping we get some more details from Kojima productions about Ground Zero's and the Phantom Pain! The latest news doesn't give me a warm and fuzzy feeling, Keifer Sutherland's lackadaisical VO performances, the apparent system changes that early impressions say make the game feel more like Splinter Cell.
I have been playing MGS since 1998 on the PS1 and in fact I did play the original Metal Gear on the NES. So I'm fully trained in Tactical Espionage Action and this new direction worries me.
I'm still Super excited for MGS V as I'm about 95% sure Ground Zeroes which takes place in 1975 will see Ciper destroy Mother Base and collect Big Bosses DNA for the Les Enfants Terribles Project assuming Big Boss is dead. Then MGSV The Phantom Pain picks up in 1984 with Big Boss waking from his I have a feeling the quote "From Fox two Phantoms were Born" and "V has awakened" may have some some correlation to the Les Enfants Terribles Project.
Aside from that I am sure Sony has something else planned to announce at TGS 2013, maybe more deets on Gaikai, and hopefully some more new game announcements!
