SNES Classic… Nintendo Really?

Hey everyone! Syniax here with another blog rant on the world of gaming. Recently Nintendo has unveiled the SNES Classic Mini! This is great because of the fact of nostalgia and the games it comes with. I personally did Sega Genesis back at this point but all in all the games on SNES did a whole lot better imo as far as being great games vs Sega.

And here we go! *Joker Voice*

So Nintendo has announced the release of SNES Classic Mini state side on September 29th for 79.99. When we compare the content vs NES you are getting about 9 games less vs the 30 you got from NES classic and paying out of pocket 59.99.  So the list of games that have been confirmed for SNES Classic are as follows:

  • Contra III: The Alien Wars
  • Donkey Kong Country
  • EarthBound
  • Final Fantasy III
  • F-ZERO
  • Kirby Super Star
  • Kirby’s Dream Course
  • The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
  • Mega Man X
  • Secret of Mana
  • Star Fox
  • Star Fox 2
  • Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting
  • Super Castlevania IV
  • Super Ghouls ’n Ghosts
  • Super Mario Kart
  • Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
  • Super Mario World
  • Super Metroid
  • Super Punch-Out!!
  • Yoshi’s Island

Some people just want to watch the world burn…

Also including Star Fox 2 never before released which sounds like a great deal. Everything in this one little box and probably a matter of time before someone gets inside this and guts it and you will have possibly the majority of SNES titles in one little location that you can play on your HDTV.

Nintendo at it again…smh

Nintendo announced yesterday the release of the console and with hours of its announcement also announced that they will be discontinued by the end of this year. What ever the reason or excuse. I think this is a retarded method to go about this. Back in my day I only really played Nintendo, SNES, and most of the gameboys. I didn’t pay attention to N64 or anything after that til of recent with the Nintendo Switch. It seems that Nintendo has this reputation of screwing the consumers over and over with lack of stock and not meeting supply and demand.  It seems scalpers are the ones who are really making a profit at this point in time. In all honesty I don’t understand why they gave up on NES with how well they were moving them. I even bet if they let the NES and SNES classics get deployed for a bit they would beat out Microsoft’s Xbox… (maybe ha!) but why just give them up?

 

Nintendo is still epic in my heart… I think

Well with whatever reasons they have to go off and not wanting to make money off these products and how they do business, Nintendo has a spot in my heart but only for the Switch at this point in time. I was thinking about getting the classic mini’s but in time I realized how pointless it would be to them around and this is thanks to Xbox and their situation with Backwards compatible gaming and how no one really plays the games. I don’t see my self trying to complete these games especially around the time frame that they will drop which will be around Destiny’s 2 launch.. I rather put my money and time into Destiny 2 at this point before I go wasting time, money and energy trying to location the SNES Mini… anyways this is Syniax signing out! Always remain epic!

Another comeback? Giveaway this weekend?

Hey everyone! Syniax here once again trying to bring some type of consistency in my podcasting and streaming. At this point I am working on getting my twitter verified and going for Twitch Affiliation… or at least that’s what its called…. I think? Anyways moving on forward with this year, things are actually looking good for gaming. I have a few games that I am actually interested in playing this year. Starting with…

Destiny 2:

destiny-1

So excited…I just can’t hide it?

This is one game I really can’t wait on. I am basically done with Destiny at this point in time. I do however need to work on my flawless raider and platinum this game. However my excitement towards Destiny 2 cannot be contain. New adventures and new raids with old and new friends and of course the Royal Guardian Corps . This year will be huge for Destiny in my opinion and hopefully they don’t let us down. Another title I am looking forward to this year is…

Super Mario Odyssey:

Mario Lost in New York?

Now for Super Mario Odyssey… Hmm? Not going to lie, I don’t know what I am getting myself into. I just know that this is a game on the newly released Nintendo Switch and its Mario. Gotta have a Mario game for your new console am I right? Mind you the game comes out later this year during Winter… the console released in March. Nintendo seriously? I gotta wait all  year long just to get my hands on Super Mario? Meh if that was the case why not just get Virtual Console going already so I blast my wallet at all the Super Mario games… Anyways moving on.

Assassin’s Creed:

68e66356e158945208b59475b749c169.jpg

Is this legit?

So apparently we finally have an Assassin’s Creed game coming out, yet I haven’t finished Black Flag because of the boat battle system… hate it (imo) The system after getting use to is alright but all in all I love being an assassin on land. It is tons of fun. In my opinion I felt they took away from that experience when it came to Black Flag with all these boat fights. At some point in time I will take the time and actually beat this game along with the other titles, Unity and Syndicate. Overall I love the Assassin Creed series and I hope this next installment won’t let me down like Black Flag did.

Alright that was pretty much everything that I am actually looking forward to this year… I do have other titles but not worth the typing and pic hunting. This weekend I will be doing a stream and handing out 20 dollars toward PSN or Xbox or Steam… which ever the winner chooses. I will have more details later on by Friday when everything is in order. For more details and updates follow me @Syniax on Twitter and also follow me on Twitch.Tv/Syniax to hold your spot in the giveaway! Anyways I am out and always remain epic!

Nintendo Switch Soon to be available!

Hey everyone! So apparently Nintendo is about to buckle down and start to sell more Nintendo Switches! They are actually planning to double their inventory once they got wind of how many consoles they have sold as of recent… 


Despite the issues with the console such as scratching of the screen or issues where the console would display odd graphics, the Switch is selling like hot cakes (never understood that ref).  Anyways on Project Syniax Gaming page on fb Facebook.com/projectsyniax I will post any updates about the Switch restocked so stay tune! Also follow me on Twitter.com/syniax for more updates! 

Enjoy!

Welcome to 2017…Late but that RE though

Hey everyone! How is everyone doing this year so far? Games are again pouring out little by little with releases like Resident Evil and Kingdom Hearts 2.8…. I’ve yet to try out the Kingdom Hearts game because I am waiting on 1.5 and 2.5 to come out for the PS4… Til then I will just have to be patient. Anyways Resident Evil while a familiar title came with a whole new twist… I won’t spoil any stories… but this game took the whole name and brought it back to what Resident Evil 1 and 2 was about… that fear factor…

KeyArt

Get your depends ready…

Resident Evil 7 brings the game back to it’s roots with all the scares and jumps and bitching out you can do in a gaming session. What even drives it to a crazier level is the fact that it is compatible with Playstation’s VR. Putting the PSVR on and playing this game brings you right into the house and into the seat of Ethan and other Survivors while playing this game. At one point I suggest that this game is scary with VR and with out you will be missing out on the experience. I still hold to that factor but at the same time I’ve played the game with out VR and felt just as fearful.

Welcome to the Family…son

Through out the game you meet multiple people of the “Family” and try to unfold the very fabric of what the actual fluff is going on in this place. I would love to dive in on each member of the family but again that’s giving away a few scares and a few details. I will say though that the family for this game is the perfect way to get Resident Evil 7 rolling. Watching as the man of the family would walk around the house looking for you and even when the mother of the family would try to hunt you down kept you wishing that you never got that message from Mia. Ah Mia? She’s the reason why you came down to this house in the first place. Apparently your wife…. disappears for some odd apparent reason and sends you a video message. You in turn come out to Louisiana ( I think that was the state) in search for your wife…Mia. (Apparently she was missing 3 years…wow)

The Kitchen Killer…

So I mean if you are someone who can put 2 and 2 together pretty quick you will see what is going on the first time you lay eyes on Mia… The Kitchen Killer… Do you recall the Kitchen Demo for PSVR? Yep… The moment I laid eyes on this victim of lord knows what goes on in this house type of crimes… I remembered… This is that trick who stabs you in the leg in the PSVR Demo. What happens in the game with you and her, well that’s an adventure you should embark on.

I will say though that this game is worth getting your hands on. Easily about 10 hour adventure and can be done in less… Plays like a regular Resident Evil game once you get past the first couple of hours. The game is scary and does a great job putting that fear into play. I recommend you pick up a copy at your local shop or getting this on redbox for a good weekend. Anyways this is Syniax signing out with my randomness and random opinions… I will upload a video version of my impressions and take on Resident Evil soon…

 

2016 for Gaming coming to an end…

Hey everyone! 2016 has been an intense year for gaming. Seems we got a lot of good games that came through overall this year. I am impress with most of them and some of them def did not do much for me. Other games…well never seen such disappointment but we hope they can redeem themselves from the pits with some DLCs.2016-games.0.0.jpg

October going into November was also brutal for gaming as the games came out back to back with COD and Battlefield along with Titan Fall. The list kept going on and on. After Thanksgiving the games all dropped which was a first for me. I probably didn’t notice this last year if it did happen but this was the first time I saw that games that had just came out even COD games got prices cut in half. COD even went for a $1 deal at Gamestop one day if you traded something decent in. It was chaotic.

Hell even the deals now are still going for random games. I just came back from Gamestop and purchased Dead Rising 4 for 29.99 and it came with a free snow globe… So legit! That game just came out not to long ago if I remember correctly… Oh and I got the Xbox One… Pretty good deal with an extra controller of choice and 30 dollar gift card I was pretty happy. I know I’ve said my fair share of Xbox but overall their online game play is alot better I would have to admit and their controllers feel better IMO. Playstation has definitely taken the steps to be the better console overall but I got enough love for both of these consoles. I plan on purchasing most of the exclusives on Xbox and maybe here and there I might get something on Xbox instead of Playstation.

Anyways 2016 has been a great year for gaming. Stay tune for the podcast which will always be uploaded to YouTube.com/syniax for the next episode where we will talk about our game of the year choices and some that had some potential but didn’t make it. Enjoy!
