6 Tips to Get Better at Street Fighter 5

Fighting games can be a blast to play. However, for new players to the genre, early experiences can be extremely frustrating. When you lose in a fighting game, there is no excuse other than that your opponent was better than you in that match. This is especially true for beginners. With the first season of…

Not Every Video Game is for You and its All Ok

When Sony put up Gone Home for Playstation Plus I finally thought I would give it a try. I walked through this “walking simulator” for a couple of hours and watched this beautiful story come together through notes and cassettes and pictures over and over again. I was actually really upset with myself for not…

What Makes Uncharted 4 So Special?

Over the past 2 weeks, I have played and beaten all of the Uncharted games on PS4 and it was AWESOME! Developer Naughty Dog sure does tell a great story, no one can argue that. However, Uncharted 4, in my heart of hearts, holds something special for me that I have never seen before. One…

Why We Should Be Excited About Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Nintendo did not have a conference at this year’s E3, but that did not stop them from presenting what may be one of the most anticipated games of 2017.  On Tuesday, June 14th, we were shown a trailer for the new upcoming Zelda title, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild followed by an…

Microsoft: Play Anywhere

With the new initiative by Microsoft, Play Anywhere, a lot of people are asking, “why do I need an Xbox if everything is coming out on PC as well?” While this is a good argument, Microsoft does not have to care. With the 20 million Xbox Ones to Sony’s 41 million PS4s, Microsoft has to…

Yuntwis Discusses Detroit: Become Human

It’s been awhile since I wrote the best-selling review “Fight Night Champion”, I’m back with a interesting game that literally hits home “Detroit Become Human”. The game has not come out yet but we have seen two different trailers. One that portrays a female Android named Kara and another with the Android named Connor. Detroit:…

TellTale Fatigue

I, along with countless others, love the Telltale games. They are king when it comes to storytelling and have spread across many different franchises while maintaining their charm. As the popularity of their titles has increased, so has their number of titles. So far we have received two seasons of The Walking Dead, a fantastic…

Call of Duty Bio Augmentation a Possible Reality?

I was watching a friend play Call of Duty Black Ops III and the game focused on the theme of bio augmentation. The concept of replacing body parts with mechanical substitutes. While Black Ops III isn’t the first game to approach the subject, it seems like the concept is far from reality. I am seeing…

All Games Should Have An Option To Skip Cutscenes

We all experience it when playing single-player games. After starting the console, we wait for a minute for the machine to load the game. Then, a few seconds to find our save file. After that, the game will take another minute to load. And, after a few minutes of game play, we’ll see a cutscene…

The Quest For One Million Bottle Caps

Hey Everyone! I wanted to share something exciting with every video game fan out there. I am going to take on a new project thanks to the effort and generosity of TrickyMic. For the longest time, I debated setting up a YouTube profile, vine account, or twitch profile because I don’t know what to talk…

MMOs Are For Children

I have played my fair share of MMOs. Whether it was a dabble in Age of Wushu, the moderate amount of time I played the Old Republic and Lord of the Rings Online, or the years I spent on World of Warcraft. While I don’t regret any of the copious amount of time I spent…

Are Gamers Suckers?

As gamers, we are always waiting for the the next big reveal. Whether it is the next IP, the next game, or the next generation console. Three years ago, we all knew the next generation consoles (PS4/XBOX ONE) were coming, but we had no details. Then within two months of each other, we got our…

Star Wars Battlefront E3 Preview

I will admit that Battlefront was not something that I was particularly looking forward to. I am not overly fond of shooters, but I do love Star Wars so I gave it a try. I was able to try out a co-op wave mission. There were 6 waves and they consisted of kill off the…

Views on VR Gaming

Before attending E3, I had very negative views on Virtual Reality gaming. The concept is appealing, sure, but it seemed impractical and almost silly with the technology I had seen. Headsets were clunky and embarrassing, quality was abysmal, games that played on it were boring and sloppy, and a plethora of other problems. E3 has…

Understanding PC vs Consoles

So, I know what you’re thinking. Well, hopefully. You’re probably thinking something along the lines of “PC vs consoles?! Oh no, another propaganda piece about PC is superior to consoles.” Well, I can say for certain that is not the case. What is the case, however, is trying to understand what each platform brings to…

Gaming While Working

So, if you listen to my last few episodes of The BladedTech Show, you’ll know that I recently started my first job. However, playing video games seems to be a task now than something I just do. I have to be more careful in picking what games I play due to the time and money…

Bloodborne Is coming, and I’m taking vacation for it.

Seriously I’m taking a nice vacation to play this game. I didn’t even try to hide it from my boss, he knows why I’m taking vacation and he has no choice but to accept it because I will be doing nothing but playing this game. I’m a HUGE fan of the series. From Software created…

What Has Happened to DLC??

Who doesn’t enjoy DLC? It can add additional characters, extend the original game when it has run its course, and in some cases add almost a whole new game! This is, however, how it should be. Instead, we get a bunch of game developers pushing out DLC before the game has even hit the sales…
