Blog – A Video Game Stay-Cation

Confused by the title? First, let me define what a stay-cation actually means.

Have off of work, or school? Not planning on going anywhere or doing anything in that time? Well, you’re staying home on your vacation then, and not doing a damn thing. In our busy society where there’s ALWAYS a project, always something to do, always somewhere to go, it’s nice to just wake up one day and say “I got nothing to do this whole week.” Unfortunately, if you’re a homeowner like myself, there’s ALWAYS something needs to get done, but that’s par for the course.

I only bring this up because I scheduled a week off this last week in February, and I had nothing planned. Nothing. Sure I bumbled around the house, doing this and that, but for the most part I was excited about all the games I could potentially play and get to. Fortunately for myself, the video game Anthem came out and it affords me a lot of time to get into that one, a game that requires a good portion of your time in order to really enjoy it.

Resident Evil 2 ReMake Review

Developer : Capcom
Platform : PS4, Xbox One, PC

This is a disclaimer; Resident Evil 2 is one of my most favorite games of all time. It obviously is my favorite Resident Evil game in the entire series, so my bias may be REAL strong in this review. However, as with other remasters and remakes, they have been known to polarize a dedicated fan-base that does not want ANYTHING in their beloved series to change. I’m open to change and improvement, and when I found out one of my favorite games of all time was being remade from the ground up, I jumped for joy, but sat in bated breath, hoping that it wouldn’t demolish what made the original so good in the first place.

DragonBoyZ in the Hood : Teaching Stoy DragonballZ. EXCLUSIVE EPISODE!

Dan joins guests Adam and Mike to try and get Stoy into Dragonball Z, in time for the new movie Dragon Ball Super: Brolly. On a seemingly quiet Saturday afternoon the four sat down and watched a few Dragonball Z movies, and Stoy was dumbfounded as to what the hell was going on. He had MANY questions, but overall enjoyed the universe! Listen to the episode and hear everyone else try to explain the DBZ universe to him. Try to.

Beat Saber (PSVR) Review

Developer: Beat Games (Formerly Hyperbolic Magnetism)
Platform(s): PSVR (also available on PC)

 

As an owner of the PSVR since it’s release two and a half years ago now, there are a few games in my library that I like to introduce new players to; games that are fun, easy to pick up and not vomit-inducing (Astro Bots, Superhot VR, etc.). I can take most, if not all VR games for longer periods of time and not get dizzy or want to throw up, but I know that there are others that cannot. Safely, I can say that now Beat Saber has been added to the list of games that are a MUST play for any PSVR owner, and a great game for even beginner players to pick up and have a fun time with. This game DOES require quite a bit of movement and exercise, so make sure you’re sufficiently warmed up.
