Judging a Book by its cover…

Hey everyone! Syniax here with another blog/rant before I head off to sleep! So pretty much I’ve played Call of Duty games for years! The argument is that ever since the Modern Warfare series dropped, They have been the same basic game ever since. I will not debate that it practically is. I mean for a few minor touch-ups and other games had jetpacks and rocket boots, pretty much the same game.

When they announced Black Ops 4 for our current generation without an actual campaign, I was surprised. I really didn’t want any parts of it. I decided I was not going to buy COD this year because of the lack of a campaign. I really enjoy playing campaigns in these first-person shooters like Battlefield and Call of Duty. When you strip that way and expect me to pay 60 dollars, you are basically out of your damn mind and it is disrespectful to even ponder the thought that we should pay 60 dollars for an actual incomplete game.

Now fast forward to today and I heard that they even dropped a Battle Royal mode into the game. Ever since Fortnite did its thing with Battle Royale, I basically gave up on the franchise. I actually loved playing the game in its PVE mode but everyone and I mean everyone loves the Battle Royale. Games like PUBG couldn’t even compete even though they kinda originated the idea from a gaming point. Even though Call of Duty always had free for all with just 10 people… 1/10th of Battle Royale. (Math might be wrong).

They even dropped a trial that we could access for free. This is where I feel so wrong yet I will have to say it. I enjoyed the Blackout aka Battle Royale mode this game has to offer. It gives me the same intensity of PUBG. The fear and tension are all there. Running around trying to find weapons and hoping you don’t get merc when turning the corner or having to run out of the house just like PUBG made this game so great. It didn’t feel so kiddy like and happy go lucky feeling that you go through when you play Fortnite. I actually felt like this game has some potential and did Battle Royale just right. Almost debating if I should get the 29.99 dollar copy from best buy at this point because of that mode alone.

Not me… I am so much hotter.

I almost feel like a hypocrite each time COD comes out and I find something to dislike but at times some people just follow the norm. Oh, let’s hate this game for a bit because it does things the same over and over but when I play it I actually enjoy it.  I actually miss the old days when playing with my friends back in Modern Warfare 1 and 2 with tags like 718 and BBAG (Bang Bang Anywhere Gang) Those were the good old days. Anyways this is Syniax signing out! Enjoy and always remain epic!

My view on Fallout 76 as of today

Hello everyone! Syniax here with another blog. I will try my best to be active on this site weekly if possible so I guess according to the last blog, every Sunday sounds about right? Anyways moving on to the topic at hand… Fallout 76.

So pretty much everyone has heard about the infamous Fallout 76 and the great launch and success of this title right? From having one of the worse beta tests and also making it available at certain times to defer us from the truth, has made us question Bethesda as a company. A lot of these companies have fallen into this idea that they can pitch out a dream of a game but when we actually get to play their test or actual product, we are actually faced with a terrible and buggy game. Fallout 76 definitely takes the cake on this trend.

From Power Armor glitching to graphic pop-ins, Fallout 76 has done it all. It has also felt like an incomplete game with the fact that we got no NPCs. Only holo-tape after holo-tape. It feels as if no one even tried to get this game going. Even though we were told that so many people had their share of helping this game what it is today. It almost feels as if no one even cared about the final product. They knew what they were shipping out. Yet they still decided to shoot this one out without even trying to make it actually better than their previous installment. I almost believe that they were trying to fund Fallout 5 with this failed project.

Someone almost got me a little convinced to give it a shot again. A friend of mine who I played ARK with at one point. He goes on to tell me that its a Fallout themed ARK. Only players are around and make the game with their PvP and PvE elements. They added in these little quests as bonus incentive but in reality, they might have been trying to make a game like Ark and survival games we grew to love over that last couple of years. Also I found Fallout 76 for 35 dollars pre-owned… I was almost convinced. However, I really thought this one through and decided this game will not be joining my collection at this point. I might wait for it to appear in a bargain bin and pay 10 to possibly 15 dollars for it at this point. Not worth my time nor my money. Anyways that is another rant by yours truly… always remain epic!


New Years Resolution! What’s yours?!

Hey everyone! Syniax here with another blog and with Christmas down the road we already know what to expect for most gamers and people alike. New Year’s Resolutions. Time to get fit. Time to read all those books. Time to even get those back logs cleared up.

This is only the physical copies of PS4. Missing PSN, XBOX, SWITCH… the list goes on


A person I follow on twitter inspired me recently to actually play along with the New Year’s Resolution randomness. This person goes by the name @GlassesAreCo0l on twitter. Very cool and chill gamer who decided that she too wanted to clean out her back log. I noticed when she kept putting up post in relation to games she completed like this one for example:


Automatically you can say I was inspired. Everyday I look into my area where all my games are put on standby. Some of these games are in wrappers or open once and put down because of games like World of Warcraft or Destiny took priority. After a while certain games like God of War and Spider-man came out also pushing me to complete many single player games that are in my library.

So basically long story short, my New Year’s resolution will be to play as many games as I can in the time that I have and actually complete these games. They won’t be 100% but I will definitely try to finish these games laying around collecting dust. I will also try to stream some of the games being played but I can’t promise that I will do them 100% on stream with the way my life has been in the past few months with my little blossom of joy running around.  I hope some of y’all are willing to join me in my epic adventure of actually finishing these games. I will still fit in games like the upcoming Anthem and Kingdom Hearts 3 into the mix but overall I will be focusing my time and energy on these games. Anyways Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas everyone! Also have a Happy New Year! I will see you all on twitch.tv/syniax next year!

First Impressions on Fallout 76

Hey everyone Syniax here and I gotta say after I just finished up with Fallout 76 Beta, I am not impressed. You’ve probably heard this from many youtubers and reviewers but here is my two cents on the matter.


And here we go…

So I started up my stream with my new beta entry into Fallout 76. I was hype about it and I just got a new desk for my profession as a streamer and entertainer. One step at a time right? Anyways moving on, Starting this game up and going into the character customization I was a little confused on how everything works and if we were limited or not.


It seems that we got a decent selection of choices when it comes to what you want to look like in your adventures. Moving on into the world was where things seem all too familiar and it really just felt horrible the whole way. Going in and fighting with my guns or melee felt exactly like how Fallout 4 was. Seemed like Bethesda didn’t even try to do anything with this game… Just gave us a huge map and through a few people who don’t even appear until a few quest in. Mind you we get no human like npcs… just robots who wish humans existed again.

fallout762.PNG      In one mission I was told to find someone and when I found them they were dead by the water. Kesha had a tape I could listen to that went on for like 30 minutes. I lost interest after the first five that this person kept going. It’s almost like this person knew that they would die and I would come up on their corpse to continue their work… This game felt like a super water down version of the Fallout Series. This reminds me of when Bethesda said we will release Elder Scrolls Online… another super water down version of Elder Scrolls Series. The game even had frame rate spikes which got annoying after a while mind you I was gaming on a PS4 Pro.


Overall in my opinion this game itself is critically injured. I don’t why the devs went in this direction when it came to Fallout and why did they take a lazy approach. I feel that this game is ultimately a cash grab to fund for hopefully a possible Fallout 5… We shall see… This game is not worth your 60 dollars. Alright this was your PSA from Syniax and I am out! Always remain epic!

Switching it up!

Hey everyone! So I recently tweeted about how I will be switching up the schedule of what I stream on my channel. Pretty much I am going back my modern ways because its  what I enjoy.  Don’t get me wrong I love my retro but I feel like I am not getting my current games done and replaying a lot of the old ones that I’ve finished years ago. With the coming storm of E3 announcements and the library of PS4 / Xbox One games I want to actually play and finish I keep finding myself playing games from when I was a kid. So now I want to organize myself with a new schedule on what shows up on my streams and when. With games like Devil May Cry 1-3 HD sitting in the PS4… and the rumor announcement of Devil May Cry 5 coming soon…. I had to switch it up

When are you going to play with me David…

So what I am planning to do for the most part will be Sun Mon Tues Weds will be the time for the modern games or games I actually want to finish. Thursday will be ThrowBackThursdays and will consist of games that are from my child hood such as the Zelda series I am currently doing. This will be a better way of trying to get games out of the way in my library that are currently just in idle such as Devil May Cry and Ratchet and Clank. Also looking forward to the new Detroit become human. The moment I find that for sale/pre-owned I will def move forward with that.

Anyways I will be trying this format out for a while to see the reception. Anyways this is Syniax and I am out! Always remain epic!

Taking it back…

Hey everyone! Syniax here with more randomness! This time it gets crazy. I use to think my backlog in my ps4 and ps3 section was getting out of hand and eventually I added in Xbox One. Now it has increased ten fold and it didn’t even cost that much! Sounded like a commercial here but I will explain.


So sometime ago my wife got me a PS2 with Final Fantasy Dirge of Cerebus…. Hooked it up to the tv and started going ham… This didn’t really do much as far as my retro addiction goes but it sure was a start.

Eventually I decided I wanted to own the original PS1… and so I did… after that I race to get 3 epic games right off the bat and surprisingly they were cheap. Final Fantasy VII VIII and IX. Eventually I got a few more games but the library of games for that system was crazy so in due time I will eventually complete my collection again for PS1.

So eventually I was collecting random games for the PS1 and PS2 and it felt like I was putting myself together again. Long story short back when I use to live in Ocala, I use to actually own most consoles growing up. Nintendo, Sega, PS1, Original Gameboy. What happen was I had to stay in New York for a year not of my own choice and I left everything basically behind except my Gameboy Color…. Everything else burned down in a fire that started in my room with a short in the wall. Yep I was devastated to find out my  prized possessions were gone instantly.  Of course I was happy that my family was good to go but yea… When I got back all I had was a PS1 I had got from my family in New York and my gameboy color. I don’t know what I did with the PS1 but that disappeared at some point. Moving on though!

Next comes the part where the craze went in all thanks to my lovely wife. My wife one day decides she wants to treat herself. She deserves it. Hard working woman and always going through great lengths to make sure everything is on point at home and at work. So yea it was about time she actually treated herself to something. She got a samsung tablet. Pretty epic 10 inch tablet where she watches youtube in bed now. She also decided to treat me back to my childhood though that day.

She got me the N64 (Which I have never owned… and Only played 2 games Zelda Ocarina of time and Majoras Mask) and the original 1989 Gameboy! The N64 came with no games but I was so happy to get one… so excited to get a game or two the next day! I even looked for recommendations online from my friends on facebook…. apparently everyone I know was playing N64. I was playing Counter Strike at the time. As for the gameboy I found my old copy of pokemon blue and started to play! The next day I went out and got some games for the n64 and went ham!

Image may contain: 1 person

Now I thought I was good for the time being… collect a few games that I really wanted to play back when N64 was going around… but my wife didn’t stop there. One day she decided to get me the Sega Genesis. Sega Genesis was pretty much my kid stage of life console along with Nintendo and Gameboy. PS1 I would say was my teen years and at some point I had a PS2 but not many games because I was addicted to the internets and mmo like games. Happy with the Sega I decided on building my library even further… my mission to collect pieces of my child hood and even pieces that I never got to experience for myself. This is when I found the Gamecube!

Of course on our journeys we got other items such as Super Mario 64…(Never played) and Superman along with a gameboy color for my wife and Tetris. I will also complete Xenosaga Episode 1  2 and 3 in time.

Anyways that’s what I’ve been doing with my time and I decided to reinvent my channel a bit to basically support these retro games. Its fun playing the new games from time after time but I really love the experience I have playing retro games. My channel saw more growth over time playing the old school resident evil games vs when I decided to play Destiny 2 which at the time was a popular game but of course the community I had didn’t want to see Destiny 2. They wanted more of the old school concept… Lost out on most my viewers because of it. I feel that I get a better response with retro and the community are better people overall. So I will continue to play retro and we shall see how this goes over time. Anyways I am out! Enjoy and always remain epic!

Sea of Thieves….10% of a game?

Hey everyone! Been a bit since I’ve put my random thoughts on my blog about games so here I go again coming out of the shadows!

So here we got the next exclusive game for Microsoft’s Xbox console. I was really excited about this new game coming out especially after they canceled Scale Bound. Xbox apparently hasn’t been doing too well in the exclusives department. They pretty much kept bringing games to the table that Playstation would bring so the battle between the both almost seemed pointless. Might as well just go for the system who has the bigger audience at this point or if you are civil , just go for the console you feel good about and have friends to play with.

Sea of Thieves had a few beta trials and a closed beta session at one point. My friends and I managed to get into the stress test rounds of the closed beta.  We actually did have some fun with the time we had getting on the ship and heading out for our first few quest. When the game came out we all grabbed gamepass to get our adventures going and we even had a crew of four in order to get the most out of our experience.  What happens next… is just miserable.

Image result for sea of thieves

Of course we start off with the midnight login situation that some are familiar with games like FFXIV and World of Warcraft. Eventually we all get to log in and we get to the character selection section. The way they decided to go about this was that you have a wheel of pirates you get to choose from…. presets if you will. You select one of these pirates or hit the trigger button and you get to select from a new set of presets. For some odd reason they felt that we didn’t need a customization portion for the characters we wanted to invest time in. Instead select a preset and you are good to go. Took Badical some time…. and after that he wasn’t happen at what he got. I got mine in 2 resets and wish they could have done better. Eventually we select our characters and begin the questing.

The questing was another issue all together. You go ahead to one of the factions and select from the 3 quest that are available to you. At the time we only knew about the Gold Faction so all 4 of us grabbed the same 3 quest and we headed out onto the ship. The concept of getting on the ship, voting for the mission and heading out was pretty well set. Eventually we all had roles in the ship like Badical steered the ship while I read the map and between Grim and Sky they messed around with look out and sails. We pretty much had everything figured out for the most part as far as getting to where we needed to go. We finally get to the land with our treasure… kill a few skeletons and grab the box and head out to the next island…. from island to island grabbing our treasure boxes. Eventually we got everything together and headed back. At one point we did run into an island and almost sank. Patched up the ship and we were ready to go. When we returned to the island outpost we went to turn in the quest and we got some gold and some ranks with the faction.

Image result for sea of thieves

It was all fun and games til that point. We all got paid the same for the most part but for some reason I still had the quest in my log along with my fellow pirates. Badical had his cleared out due to the fact that we basically did his missions. We actually had no way to delete the missions which is a huge negative… Took watching a video to figure out how to get rid of quest you already did with friends or quest you didn’t want in your log.  After this bit we all decided it was a late night and logged off..

Image result for sea of thieves

The next morning I decided to go on some solo missions my self to see the game for what it truly was and boy I was disappointed. 3 factions.. you do treasure hunts, bounties or gathering quest. After that you have really nothing else. Their progression system is basically all cosmetic with some ranks. They have 2 world events which is the hydra and the raid that happens on skeleton islands and that’s basically it. You can explore around see if you get lucky and find some randomness in the ocean or out on some random island but for the most part that is basically it. The game and its content is basically minimal at this point. They will add on more content later on but at this point its not worth 60 dollars. Better off paying for the gamepass and playing it through that. I had a feeling in the closed beta sessions that content was going to be and issue and I am glad I canceled my order for that game.

Image result for sea of thieves

Don’t get me wrong. If you got a good group of people you can do multiplayer games with this might be alot of fun for that group and getting into all types of randomness.. But for content and being apart of something you want to major in… don’t waste your time. You got Far Cry 5 with Co OP and A away out coming out soon and that is more worth your dime…. Enjoy my opinions or don’t have a nice day! Always remain epic!
