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…

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.

walmart_black_friday_2016_ad-600x565

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!

 

 

October is a bit lit…

Hey everyone Syniax here with a bit of randomness I gotta share with you guys. So far the month started off pretty decently with the release of the PSN titles Resident Evil and Transformers Devastation for PS4. I was more excited to get my hands on trying out the Outlast 2 Demo which I got a link below for reactions…

Outlast 2 Demo was pretty decent for a demo. Was a bit confused on if that was it towards the end or was there more to be uncovered just like the Resident Evil demo that was showcased not to long ago. Moving on I definitely need to buckle down and get Outlast 1 out of the way along with the add-on… but so much is happen at a rapid rate.. I’ve gotten to that point with World of Warcraft where the addiction is being slowed down only because of the onslaught of games barreling through. One of those games was Mafia 3…

mafia-3

This game I randomly picked up through Red-box and I gotta say… I was very impressed by the beginning of the story. That beginning piece for the story was priceless and crazy and the way they laid it out like a documentary was perfect for story telling. Even when you would fail a mission they would go on the documentary as if you failed. This is a game you need to pick up story wise… even though it goes through repetitive game-play… I for one thought the story help it out as you progressed through the game. I’ve yet to finish it up but I will be picking this back up from Red-box later this weekend to tackle that.  Another game that took me for a joy ride was Dragon Quest Builders…

This game is a blend of Zelda / Minecraft / RPG randomness… This game comes with a basic type of story and with the way building works in this game its pretty neat. It’s kinda basic compared to Minecraft and Terraria but I approve of this game. The story is interesting but hard to tell from where I am at in the game to know if the story will be progressing at some point other than just a boy building things for a better city. I wanna be able to take down the guy responsible for it all! Another game that has been released today is Battlefield 1!

Got some game-play ^ for you guys to see for those who haven’t played it… The game itself looks amazing. For once EA actually delivered a game that actually seems polished and done correctly. I am pretty sure they got a few bugs up their sleeve but nothing ground breaking yet. The multiplayer is enjoyable for the most part. I actually started to get things going once I joined with a friend. Playing by yourself is just asking for a negative KD. The Singleplayer in the game is breathtaking when it comes to the graphics and the design for the game. The way the beginning started with the campaign was amazing… as you died as one soldier you became the next solider and their experience of what they went through in the war… Sweet on the transitions I gotta say.  Anyways another game that took some time to get through was of course COD… Infinite Warfare… The Modern Warfare campaign also dropped… Which I haven’t gone through yet… might pop that off tonight Twitch.tv/Syniax <- that’s a maybe ;D . Infinite Warfare on the other hand with their beta… I felt a certain way about it. Its rough getting into COD the way its shaped since Advance Warfare. All that jet propelling and sliding and what use to be fun becomes just retarded. Yep life goes on.. Anyways this is Syniax and I am out!

Pokemon Go : My thoughts!

maxresdefault (1)

Hey everyone Syniax here! It’s been a while since I’ve typed up a bit of randomness so here goes nothing. Lately I’ve been stuck on the game Pokemon Go. From levels 1-22 so far this game has been nothing but amazing. Everyone has their opinions on the game so here is my two cents. A review of sorts but at the same time just thoughts and experience.

13664829_10154150837120923_777001787_n

That moment you realized…There is no coming back

So you basically start-up with this guy. Just like the beginning of all Pokemon games you are greeted by a Professor and you choose boy or girl and how you look depending on the game. Eventually you get to select one of the 3… Charmander Squirtle or Bulbasaur….

pokemon-go-tips-tricks-secrets-103

Wish they told us about Pikachu earlier…

So remember in the story where Ash was kinda late and got a Pikachu? Guess what…. Easter Egg Alert! You can sorta pull off the same mess with this. If you want and you go around a bit Pikachu comes up and you can select him as your beginner…. The only part about the beginner Pokemon in this game that pretty much sucks is the fact that you cannot power level that pokemon through or have him level with you to keep him going as a main pokemon unless you are lucky enough to live by a Pokemon nest for that particular pokemon. For example if you happen to choose Charmander like I did… after 20+ levels he still looks like this…

13872346_10154194743845923_487892252_n

Yep… That is my Charmander… Weak… One of the biggest negatives I have for this game is the process of how Pokemon level and gain “CP”. It’s through the candy. Remember the days when we played the gameboy or ds games… feeding candies to the pokemon pretty much was a bad idea. Now its everything you should do. You want to power them up… Candies! You want to evolve em? Candies! I really feel that they could have done a lot better in this department and let us capture a pokemon and use it as a main and continue to level through battles or gym battles or having him play that “Pikachu role” Where he doesn’t want to stay in the ball so he stays behind your avatar and he gains little bits of experience by walking with you.

Lots of ideas for this game and they went with this candy idea… Life goes on at this point but for the most part this game has been nothing but amazing.

Catching Pokemon out in the wild is the most fun I’ve had in a game in a long time. The very night this game dropped and we managed to get our main pokemon. We all ran outside in the middle of the dark and started catching them all. Pidgey got it! Rattata got it! Caterpie  got it! Magicarp ehhh… ok fine its a new game Got it!

This game also steps it up later when you get to level 5 and you are able to choose a team… but this is where the game gains its competitive edge…

13672131_10202006275676042_1683279462_n

The biggest decision you will ever make in life.

So here we are tapping on gym icons and we are presented with this. You get to choose from 1 of 3 teams… For some odd apparent reason Team Instinct has become the short bus team of the 3… I joined that team by the way. When you join one of the teams you basically become apart of that faction while others who chose another team will be apart of another faction. Basically Alliance and Horde and the other guys if you are into World of Warcraft.  The Gym battles are another concept which in a way could be fixed but at the same time have been a lot of fun for the most part…

13664396_10202006266355809_893018309_n

Not very effective!

The gym battles need some fixing at the same time its pretty much doable. You start off with getting to the gym location and if the team who owns the gym is opposite of your team you will fight them with at least 6 Pokemon no matter how many pokemon they have in the gym which kinda makes it a bit unfair. If the gym is own by your team, you are given the option to select one of your pokemon to go through the pokemon of the gym in order to level the gym prestige and make more space for more defender pokemon. You set your pokemon up and you can collect a defender bonus which is 500 dust and 10 pokecoins. I’ve had a lot of fun taking gyms from teams and going back and forth in the beginning but eventually after you collect the defender bonus it gets a bit boring but it’s also a great way to get exp but at the same time run through your potions and your revives.

13672306_10154150832675923_45865446_n

The game so far has huge potential it has swept the nation in the most ridiculous way. From parks to theme parks to even random locations are populated with Pokemon go players of all types from young to old…women and men….boys and girls….grandpas and grandmas… The game is everywhere! Even the social aspect and physical aspect is amazing with this game.

For a game that was considered by a reviewer a “bare bones” type of game… they obviously miss the randomness portion of the game. Easter Eggs! From Pikachu to the random Eevee name situation. The game continues to shine through out even though some people have given up due to server situations or lack of connection of the actual game. In the future they promise to get out trading which will bring people together and even personal battles.

13664815_10154150832740923_407846209_n

It’s lit fam… it is lit…

So in conclusion this game is nothing but amazing. It has issues from time to time…frozen balls and server issues… but in all honesty this is as good as it gets for now when it comes to actually living that Pokemon life. It might not be the same with your head stuck in the phone and walking around hatching eggs… but I feel when trading and battling begins to happen, things will definitely get better. Events like the one we saw on Mewtwo… If that’s something they are willing to explore…the game will only get crazier… anyways hope you’ve enjoyed my randomness blog… I think I will be doing a video review of the game at some point. Also No Man’s Sky will be dropping on Aug 9th and I will be live streaming most of that when it drops… I want to live stream my randomness in WOW with Demon Hunters early release but my comp will not allow it… Anyways enjoy everyone and always remain epic!

The Forest : Thoughts and Experience

 

Hey everyone! Syniax here with my thoughts on a game we pretty much put some time in. We’ve seen a lot of games coming out with the whole survival theme being tossed out. From titles ranging to The Forest, Rust, H1z1 and even Ark which will be on PS4 later this year. So we did a vote and selected The Forest to be one of the ones we should try out to see if the game has potential to ride it out with the rest.

In the beginning of the game you basically start off as a guy who survives some plane crash. When you awake your son is taken away from you by these cannibals which inhabit the island you are stranded on. The goal obviously is to survive…

maxresdefault (1)

So my friends (Templar and 13 aka Delirium) and I go all out on this new adventure right after a horrific plane crash. So when we started this game out we were all pretty much confused on how and what we need to do. We started with jumping into the water to clean ourselves up (preventing risk of infection) and eventually figured out the whole building mechanic and started to build a mini cabin. At some point Delirium dropped a tree onto the cabin and destroyed it …also killing Templar our first death.

So we decided to rebuild after Templar was revived somehow. I chose a bigger cabin which took a bit longer but we managed after meeting some random surprises.

Remember those Cannibals who took your kid? Well they are back and they want to eat you alive…or well cooked who knows. The basic ones are pretty easy to hack away at with your trusty ax. Eventually female ones come around which seem a bit faster and boobs hanging out purely for distraction. Also at times one of them will be armed with a club which you can take for yourself. We managed to finish up the building of the log cabin and building bone fires and other little pieces of fun like a log holder and fire pit to cook our food.

At one point we manage to find a hole in the ground and decided to take the rope down eventually leading us to the very bottom of this cave. A huge fat mutated human blob tackled me down and tore me into two… Templar and Delirium took him out and continued to explore. After that we started to figure out how to make weapons. One of us made armor. Another made a bow.

ss_07cd1f1a1698be47f7477877fd76eae312d886df.600x338

For the most part this game is fun. For me what does it the most is the fact that you have to have people with you playing this game. I don’t think I would have had as much fun playing alone vs playing with friends. I do however have a hunger to explore in my own game to see what I can create and what I can do in the game to further my experience. I don’t like the fact that once the host leaves out all that progress goes with him/her. At some point if this game goes big I am pretty sure they will set up dedicated servers to play on making the experience a bit more consistent. We will be doing a podcast covering this game and other survival horror games over time. This was in a way inspired by the new Resident Evil game that recently dropped the demo. I guess you can say we are searching for a good scare in gaming. Not many games can actually put a scare on people. Resident Evil’s new title pretty much did some  damage in that area along with having a community uproar on trying to figure all the crazy things out…such as that dummy finger. Anyways more to come and always remain epic!
