Gears 5 is finally here!  In a sequel to Gears of War 4, you’ll return to Sera to continue Kait Diaz’s journey into her family history, as well as her connection to the Locust.  I know I’ve been looking forward to Gears 5 since it was announced at E3 2018, and from what I’ve seen, it looks to be the biggest Gears of War game to date!

scorpion.JPGYou’ve probably seen the video online. Chun-Li is up big on Ken. He’s hanging on by a sliver of life. She loads up super to take him out. Even if he blocks, he’ll take enough damage to get knocked out. So, he doesn’t block, and he doesn’t get hit. He parries the entire super move, jumping to parry the last hit, and comes back with his own super move to win the round. The room explodes with cheers.


Monday, July 8 is National Video Game Day!  While this may conjure images of geeks eating chips and drinking soda in their Mom’s basement, video games have transcended the stereotypes associated with them to become a pastime that all ages can enjoy regardless of sex or race.

Days Gone - You Might Just "Freak" Over This Game!

by Retired: Senior Social Media Specialist ‎04-25-2019 10:17 AM - edited ‎10-13-2019 03:07 PM (15,344 Views)

Freaker!In a time when you can’t shake a stick without hitting a post-apocalyptic/zombie outbreak movie or TV show, it’s actually pretty rare to find games with this theme that offer true free-form gameplay.  Sure, there are plenty of post-apocalyptic shooters out there, but most are very linear and story takes a backseat to having the coolest new gun.


Enter Days Gone, a post-pandemic action game, where you play Deacon St. John, a bounty hunter trying to survive and find a reason to live in a world of human marauders, wild animals and worst of all: Freakers!

Mortal Kombat 11GET OVER HERE!


Few phrases in gaming are as iconic as this one and is instantly identifiable with Mortal Kombat.  I remember the first time I heard it echoing through the room, as I was walking through the arcade in the local mall.  I wandered over to see what appeared to be real people fighting it out in true martial arts style.  Then the guy playing pulled out a FATALITY and my jaw hit the floor!  I couldn’t believe that something like that was in a video game, much less one that I could play myself!

Burnout Paradise RemasterdThe Arcade Racer of Your Childhood


Relive your childhood mayhem with the return of a beloved franchise that has long been dormant.  Burnout was a cult classic staple in the realm of arcade racers in the 6th and early 7th generation of consoles. Until, Forza Horizon took the main stage it was my most played racing series to date. Burnout catered to the casual audience with smooth controls, spectacular visual, and destructive mayhem. With each entry it continued to push the bar further and revolutionized the arcade racing genre. Without Burnout I can’t really imagine what the genre what look like today but with Burnout Paradise Remastered you don’t have to! The king of arcade racing returns on modern consoles today!


It's Mario Day!

The abbreviation is Mar. 10, or, shortened, Mar10, which looks just like Mario. Maybe that’s a bit of a silly excuse for the day, but Mario truly deserves it. Without him, we may not have video games as we know them today.

Today we can celebrate the launch of one of the most anticipated titles launching this generation. Warhorse studios pitched the idea of traditional medieval RPG back in 2014 with their Kickstarter for Kingdom Come: Deliverance.  After demolishing its initial goals Deep Silver graciously picked up publishing duties and has allowed Kingdom Come to turn into the gem it’s going to be today. Who wouldn’t want to try out Gamescon’s 2017 PC Game of the Year award winner?

Assassin's Creed Origins


The cult classic franchise based on the ancestry of past assassins returns today after a long-awaited year hiatus. With a brand-new dynamic character and immersive setting Ubisoft aims to return the juggernaut franchise to the top of gaming pyramid (excuse the pun). To no one’s surprise Assassins Creed Origins was the most talked about game on Social Media during E3 2017 and with good reason. During Microsoft’s E3 presentation the gaming world was formally introduced to another iteration in the Assassins Creed family. Showcasing an abundance of new features and beautiful locals, Ubisoft came out swinging showing the beefy amount of content that was added due to a longer development cycle.

Star Wars Battlefront II


For many, the original Star Wars Battlefront series was full of classic fun filled nostalgia. Pandemics series was a childhood classic that let many relive countless Star Wars battles throughout the established era’s. So, when EA announced the revitalization of the series, many (including myself) were overcome with excitement and pure joy. Buzz and commotion sparked throughout the gaming industry about the return of the classic franchise championed by the legendary studio DICE. However, when EA’s Star Wars Battlefront released and the shiny new paint started to fade away, a large part of the community became very dissatisfied due to the lack of content. I am thrilled to say that EA’s Star Wars Battlefront II fixes that problem immensely and the beta only solidified my pre – order for this upcoming masterpiece.

Pokkén Tournament was one of the more unique experiences to debut on the Nintendo Wii U. It allows individuals to take full control of the most interesting aspect of Pokémon, the battles themselves. As a fan of the Tekken fighting series and a complete fanboy for anything Pokémon, the melding of the two franchises together was an incredible blend.

Star Wars Battlefront 2In the fall of 2015, just in time for a new era in Star Wars movies, EA Games released Star Wars Battlefront. It had been a long time coming, but the wait was worth it. This was a solid game, and one that made great use of the next-gen computing power of our current gaming systems. And as good as that game was, this year’s Battlefront II looks to be even better.

For many die-hard fans of The Elder Scrolls saga, Vvardenfell holds a special place in their heart.   These are the gamers who fell in love with the series when Bethesda’s Elder Scrolls III released back in 2002, where Morrowind was first introduced.  I am so excited to explore new areas of Tamriel and have fantastic adventures in The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind!  In the game, players will explore the larger area of Morrowind, while helping protect the area from a powerful Daedric threat.

Injustice 2It was in the fall of 2013 when Superman, with the help of the creative team at NetherRealm Studios, took control of all world governments and established his Regime. Some heroes, and even a few villains who like a one-world dictator, sided with him to help police the world. As a gamer and a comic book fan, it was exciting to see some of my favorite DC characters at their best and worst.

Grand Theft Auto VThe world was forever changed on 9/17/2013 when Grand Theft Auto V was released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.  The main campaign is only as unbelievable as the masterful Grand Theft Auto Online experience that has continued to host events to this day. 


I’ve played the entire campaign and jumped into the online experience the day it was released to the public.  In my 20+ years of gaming few games have captivated an audience with its sheer size and incredible detail like the Grand Theft Auto series.

Andromeda Teaser


Mass Effect is a franchise I’ve been a fan of ever since playing the first installment on Xbox 360 when it premiered in 2007. I can’t fathom how many hours I’ve spent over the years with my Vanguard Shepard charging and shot-gunning enemies, getting to know complex characters, and multiple replays to see how the stories change. With Andromeda fast approaching on PC, Xbox One, and premiering as the first Mass Effect title on the PS4, I can’t wait for more people than ever to have a chance to discover this fantastic franchise that I love.

Battlefield 1With a trailer that has yielded more ‘likes’ on YouTube than any other trailer before it, the excitement around Battlefield 1 couldn’t be more apparent. When watching the trailer for the first time, I immediately recognized the weaponry from World War I and admittedly, I was quick to find out that automated weapons were utilized well before I originally thought; a common misconception, actually. It’s obvious that Battlefield 1 will be not only a fantastic gaming experience, but a deeply rooted history lesson.
