I’m back b*^%#@$!!! The Great Tasty Nades! After a wild end of 2016 and an even wilder start to 2017, Tasty Nades has returned to BBR! And what better way to kick off my first review of 2017 than with a game about a comic and cartoon we all loved growing up – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! I had high hopes for this game and even higher expectations. How did it hold up to its toughest critic yet? Did it quench the Nades’ thirst? Or did it leave me high and dry like a pair of nuts on a cold day?
In this review, we will be taking a look at Deadpool from the eyes of Deadpool himself, as if we were him (and we’re not). Have fun reading and let us know what you think in the comments! So without further ado… Hahaha!!! Time to review, well, me! That’s right mother fu$%^&s! The most innocent evil super hero ever made! Well, aside from Deathstroke, since my character’s concept was stolen from him; except the fact that my character is much more exciting, fun, better looking, and the ladies have told me I am much more “well equipped” for the job. Sorry Deathstroke! According to your ex-wife, the only thing you are stroking is…well nothing since you have nothing to stroke… But, anyway, enough about me! Let’s talk about what Activision did to me! They made me into a f%&^@#^ game!!! Someone thought I was important enough, not only to make a movie, but make an entire game about me! I heard it set a world record in sales, but they keep me in the dark on that kind of stuff. After all, I am the most underpaid super hero villain guy person. So, the question you must be wondering by now is, “How is my game?” Well, sit down, shut up, and read… assuming you know how of course.
Life really is strange if you think about it. One event can change the course of our lives, or even a generation. But, that begs the question. What if we could go back and change events to see the varying outcomes? Well, “Life is Strange” allows you to do just that. But, the main question is how well did it do it? Let’s find out if “Life is Strange” held up to the BlueBall Standards.
I spent endless hours as a kid testing the limits of my imagination with my Lego bricks. The blueprints in my head translated into 3D objects before my very eyes. My brain, eyes, and hands acted like a 3D printer before 3D printers were cool. Legos were truly boundless in terms of capability, assuming you had enough bricks. Combine the world of Lego with the fantasy super euphoria that is Star Wars and you have one hell of a concoction. These two worlds collide in a manner similar to icing and a cake… it’s butter, baby. Let’s find out how the game stacks up!
Your favorite crime spree franchise is back with Grand Theft Auto V! Rockstar brings their latest installment to the video game series and keeps steamrolling like a GTA driver through a sidewalk full of pedestrians. If you’re new to the franchise… where the hell have you been? GTA 5 looks to build upon the success of GTA 4 and all the pieces seem to be in place. Let’s take a look and see how it shapes up!
FIFA… arguably one of EA’s most popular franchises. By far, it has the most global appeal. What does that mean? In America, soccer (or futbol as it is more commonly known) isn’t as popular as other regions of the world so this is a game where American gamers may be a minority. That being said, FIFA was this gamer’s first soccer game. I broke my soccer cherry so to speak. It was quite the experience to say the least. So, join me, while I explain the ups and downs of my cherry popping escapade.
The third installment of the Black Ops series and the 12th volume in the Call of Duty series has landed. Call of Duty Black Ops 3 is another shooter set in the next era of war. The year is 2065, jet packs can be found in every neighborhood Walmart, and war is yet again ravaging the planet. As a big fan of CoD games, I’ll dive in to see how it ranks with past and present FPS games.
VROOOOOOOOOOOM! The sound that every man loves to hear in the morning. Horses thundering underneath the hood. RPM’s rapidly increasing as you inch toward the 200 MPH mark. All of these special moments captured in our virtual world we have come to know as “Need for Speed.” Since most of us do not have the honor of being able to experience these feelings in the real world, we can escape to our virtual haven to simulate these heavenly desires. Need for Speed Rivals was the first racing game this gamer has played since Need for Speed Underground (and Need for Speed Underground 2), so there was a high expectation already. Let’s see how it held up.
Madden. One of the longest running franchises in gaming history, eh? Not to mention, one of the most recognizable. Many of us Madden lovers get the game every year simply out of sheer obligation or tradition. We may not want to get it, but we do. Why? Because we need to. Since 1989 (or 1988 depending on how you look at it), many of us have gotten the Madden game every single year and us “Maddeneers” are no quitters. So, onward to the review!
Assassin’s Creed – the franchise that just won’t quit. It seems there is always a new Assassin’s Creed coming out. While this may excite some, others may argue that it is, at this point, just milking the dollar and ruining the series. But, for now, we will focus on AC: Brotherhood. As a previous avid fan of Assassin’s Creed, this was a game I played all the way through; and then some. To me, this game is the one that started the “modern assassin” trends due to its “modern” assassination additions (what a mouthful of A).
Assassin’s Creed – the franchise that just won’t quit. It seems there is always a new Assassin’s Creed coming out. I feel like I have said this before… Anyway, moving on to my second Assassin’s Creed review, this is the game that made me start to dislike the series. By now, fans such as myself, realized that they were milking this series – so they did something extreme to try and keep our attention. Which, to this gamer, ruined the series, but I will attempt to be as fair as possible for the sake of this review. ARRRRighty?
Halo 3 – This gamer’s first online experience…and an experience it was. This game is arguably one of the best games to have come out in the 2000’s. Yeah, I said it. Arguably, one of the best games in the entire 21th century. Let’s see why.
Brush off your crossover dribble and Reebok pumps! 2K sports has released the 17th installment in the NBA 2K franchise with NBA 2K16. New players, new rosters, new mechanics… all of the usual components to a new NBA 2K game. The game features 3 different cover athletes and a special edition with “Jo”, a.k.a. Michael Jordan, a.k.a. the Greatest Of All Time (your LeBron/Kobe arguments are invalid). Can you become the greatest of all time? I doubt it, since there is no way you’re better than me… And if you are, then it’s just because of lag or you’re a hacker! Let’s find out how NBA 2K stacks up to the competition. I’ll see you on the hardwood.
