PUBG and Fortnite…

So let me get started with that this whole article that I am writing up right about now is my opinion. I understand everyone has one of these so called opinions. If you agree with me awesome and if you don’t agree with me that’s all you. So now on with the show.

PUBG initially came out in March. I haven’t really got into it until later on in the year where I played a few matches here and there by myself and eventually tagging up with CommissarJay from work. PUBG has to be one of the most unique experiences that I can honestly say is hard to be replicated. One feeling that comes close to it would be Counter Strike’s 1.6. The matches that I’ve done for OGL was alot of fun but at the same time it was tense trying to survive the match and hoping you come out on top… Even though you had a team it was about as intense as it gets for me in some games. PUBG was able to do this with a some what free for all mechanic. You drop 100 players onto an island and you have to scavenge for weapons, weapon parts, armor parts and health items. The intensity plays in when you have to go from house to house clearing them hoping you don’t run into another player and get shot.

PUBG captures this intensity so perfectly that when you get just one kill you feel like you are on top of the world. You have that one live and you really got to make it count. You can’t just get back into the game when you die. Also they don’t have another round that you can get a second chance. Once you die its all over and its time to get back to the lobby and try it all again.

Around July a game by the name of Fortnite was getting ready to be released. A friend of mine by the name of DarknyNemesis was talking to me about this game and I was super excited about playing this game. This game was basically a builder/horde mode that over time got super repetitive. You can almost say that my friends and I was playing Fortnite before it was cool. The game basically got no type of attention in its current state and in time was just being drown out in the waves of Twitch.tv into games that don’t matter over time. September rolls around and they introduced Battle Royale in Fortnite. Battle Royale is basically a cookie cutter rip of PUBG. The only major different for me that stood out was the fact that you can destroy buildings and build your own type of forts as it goes. You can go as much as to debate that this would be the more skillful game of the two when you add the fact that you can build your own defenses over time.

What amazed me the most was the amount of popularity the game got right as it released Battle Royale. On top of that the game was free, less glitchy and buggy. The only concept that was missing in this game was the intensity. I didn’t feel that intensity I felt when I played PUBG. I felt like with the cartoon feel and what was Fortnite before this was still apart of me. The matches I would play wouldn’t feel so epic and amazing to get a kill. I did appreciate that they added a pvp type mechanic in this huge PVE game but I felt like it was trying to be something it shouldn’t. After a bit I put this game down and continued with PUBG.

Overall my vote def goes to PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds because of that intensity of trying to survive. Even though the game has a lot of huge bugs to put to rest and with the Xbox port being done so poorly. The game has a lot of potential and when its finally fixed up I hope they come out on top of this. Thanks for reading and remember to find me @Syniax on twitter and Twitch.tv/Syniax for streaming live purposes!

First Podcast Topic?

Hey everyone! It has been a while! I feel like every time I post onto this blog its always the same thing. “It’s been a while… I haven’t been on forever…” Or any other way to say that… I really need to be consistent on my blog being that I am paying for the domain.

So I’ve been talking to a few friends of mine and how we will introduce this new podcast. We did try and I think its still up on iTunes somewhere floating in the interwebs. For the most part I felt we did pretty decent but we really had no structure. After listening to a few podcast, I feel a bit more knowledgeable in the area of podcasting. We spoke on the structure and how we will present these topics over time. A topic I really want to get into is loot boxes…

The amount of controversy on the topic of loot boxes in gaming is amazing. It can go both ways in my opinion. Is it a good method? Is it gambling? Is it profit to the company to keep games at $60 bucks? So many questions and so many issues at this point in time. I will be doing some reading about this topic and we will be tackling it in the first show along with current events in the gaming word… Like favorite articles of the week before and other topics of that nature. Maybe movies might be added in? I don’t know to be honest but if you the listening public have any ideas or topics that you wish to see discussed in the Project Syniax Gaming community, let me know! Comment here… Comment on Facebook… hell you can even tweet me @Syniax . Let’s get this ball rolling and build up on this community! Anyways have an a great day and always remain epic!

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.

snes_classic.0

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:

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!
