randomness background

Hey everyone! Syniax here with the randomness coming up for the channel. In the next week I will be working hard on my channel with new intros and outtros for my video. Don’t even know if I spelled that correctly. Anyways  moving on… I got a few videos I want to put out there and I want to start-up some series like Let’s Plays for Uncharted and Dark Souls 3. Also I want to continue my podcast with or without my Peoples depending. Those I will be rolling out weekly with guest stars like the great FrozoneUSMC and Templar808! I will also be looking around for other guest stars to put on my podcast on a weekly basis. Planning to cover most topics in the gaming world and work with my fellow gamers to bring content around the clock.

Games like Final Fantasy XV have been interesting at most. With the gameplay and demos they throw at us I am excited to see this game in its fullest. For more info on this game I made a little video with some gameplay and epicness just for y’all

In other news we got Uncharted 4 rolling out soon. 5/10/16 ! I want to try to get some videos up for Uncharted Lets play on the trilogy this week coming up and see what I get out of the crowd!

uncharted

According to the info, this is the last installment for Uncharted which is a bit depressing but at most its a great series to get into. If you haven’t gotten into Uncharted def grab a copy of Uncharted Trilogy via GameStop or however you get your games.

The-Division

My second podcast will cover again…. The Division (Oh Lord) Yes I’ve got some words for this game. Destiny was crazy in its way but I feel that The Division has been a bit more of a let down compared to Destiny. I will explain in my video coming up soon. Anyways thanks for sticking around everyone and for my YouTube channel at youtube.com/syniax remember to like the videos you watch if you have enjoyed them. Each like helps out in support of the video trying to surface out and if you haven’t hit that subscribe button! thanks for the support and remember to always remain epic!

Welcome to 2016 for gaming!

Hey everyone. It’s been a while but I’ve been on and off working on my stream and getting pieces of equipment to get it going. So far I got another monitor and the programming part of the stream ready and set up. I still have to get the El Gato device being that most my gaming will take place on the console but I’ve been doing some PC gaming as well as of Recent.

Smite610

I’ve been playing the game SMITE on pc. It is a 3rd person MOBA online. Basically another Dota/LoL style game but the difference is that it’s 3rd person other than that over head view. So far its been pretty good even though I am not a fan to MOBAs. This game has def made me change my view on MOBAs with the 3rd person appeal. I will be playing this game on and off and I would like to get a bit serious into this game but I only know 1 other person in my crew who plays this game and he is as new as me.

Other games I’ve been playing on pc would be Guild Wars 2. It’s still a bit dry and the major reason I came back is because a few friends are playing but the expansion adding a bow for Guardians also came up which was a huge plus but eventually I fell in love with the Necromancer and the minion build. The way the game plays and feels is still off for me so its not something I will be taking serious.

The-Division

Now when it comes to my goals for 2016 its basically to get my stream up and going. I’ve done a lot of work recently on my stream and if you want check it out on Twitch.tv/syniax . Def take some time and hit that follow button to stay update with the games I will be playing and future events and giveaways I will be putting out there.

Now the game The Division is coming out soon in March last time I checked on the 8th of this year. This is the game I’ve been looking forward to streaming and I think the beta will be just around the corner from now. A lot of my friends really don’t feel like this game will have any value to it. I am wondering if it will do better than Destiny. Destiny was a quick fix into RPGs but towards the end started to fall apart. This game has some potential and I really hope they don’t screw this up right off the bat even though most games as of recent years just tend to throw out tiny bits of game and expect you to stick around while holding the burger on the rope leading you on.

Anyways that’s my randomness for today. Stick around for more to come. Also for more videos and live streaming head over to twitch.tv/syniax and youtube.com/syniax . Cya around!

I didn’t choose the tank life… the tank life chose me

paladin_tank

Something about having a shield makes me feel like a Leader…

Ok so honestly. I chose the tank life. Just like the way the title came out on top. This post is basically related to something I read earlier today about tanks called 7 Reasons you should be nicer to tanks and people in general credit to MadMacallan. Link Here .

So I read through the whole thing and notice some things I would like to point out and my views about the whole article and actual experiences I’ve had as a tank. Everyone has their opinions when it comes down to tanks and dps and heals. I like when people say Tanks are meat shields or DPS is easily replaceable ( this one I said at times but its hard to get real good dps lol ) and Healers are for girls.

l2tank3

Instant Queue again?! goodness I wonder why?

I chose the tank life for a couple of reasons. I love being in charge at times and also love being a rarity when it comes to grouping. For example as you see in this pic in WOW Tanks and some times Healers get rewarded for being there when needed. The tank nation is almost like the USMC the few the proud the tanks… Its a rough life because of all the randomness we got to deal with. We are the first ones in and we gotta make sure we got a tough head on our shoulders because one mistake can cost the whole raid or dungeon. I find this funny because it seems that tanks got it rough. I find it easier to deal as oppose to the other classes imo. I am actually suprised not many people are tanks. For this I love it. Love being messaged randomly “hey can you tank this for me” Or we need you for a raid because apparently everyone is a hunter.

I also love that when tank gear drops… Guess where that goes. Mine Mine Mine. I don’t have to worry about sharing my gear with a warlock who needs on spirit gear for a priest. Always party up with clothies though ;D. I also love being the one that everyone depends on because in all honesty lets put this out there. I am a total A-hole. If you get smart with me over bs best believe I will find it in my interest to make your life miserable even if its a video game. You will get kicked out of group if you want to play retarded. A pet peeve I have is the guy who comes into the game while I am tanking and for some reason dies randomly because of what ever reason… Lets say I wasn’t holding that aggro down…. OOOPS guy dies and curses me out because I couldn’t hold aggro. That guy I don’t appreciate much in my group. I really don’t need negativity in my group besides I won’t be waiting 40 minutes for another dungeon so I can leave or just kick that individual. Usually that individual gets kicked lol.

ARR_Paladn

I’ve played tank in so many games. World of Warcraft, FFXIV, SWTOR, Eden Eternal, Guild Wars, the list goes on and on. Even games that don’t have traditional tanks but a guy with a sword and shield I was in there. IE Diablo and Ragnarok. I’ve always went for the raid lead or the leader of the group no matter what it was I loved leading everyone into the randomness if I knew what was going on. I recently started up on FFXIV tanking and I gotta say its a bit slow but I love it. I was a bit iffy on tanking in that game so i stuck to doing just quest and some fates because I didn’t want to piss the PROS off with my epic tanking skills. After a bit I was told that dungeon running was a great way to get my experience going and to max out so I had to just eat it up and head out and deal with angry nerds if I mess up. My friend told me basically you will only learn way one and thats actually doing the whole thing. While DPS can get away with an attack dummy to learn their rotation… You can’t tank attack dummies… So guess where you practice… right in the field. Eventually I got my Tank like ego back and Even if I mess up I could care less I will keep going because I already know I don’t have to wait in a 40 minute que. So if dps or healers want to leave because my tanking isn’t up to the standard. Leave lol I am not the one standing in queue for 40 minutes. I usually get a replacement asap. I do however feel for the rest when it comes down to it.

Everyone has a part to play in the game called life

Everyone has a part to play in the game called life

You have what you call the holy trinity. Tank Heals DPS.  Lets be real from the beginning of the fight you need all 3 to get things done. You need that tank to mitigate the damage. You need that DPS to pull the health down of the boss or mobs you are fighting. You need the heals to be focused on the tank and if splash damage occurs give the occasional heal off to a dps. No one is perfect at their job. I really don’t care how many hours you put into the game or what spec are you and what gear you came in with. Everyone will have that day where they make that one mistake. I as a tank have had a few here and there. I remember days in WOW when tanking was so serious for a dungeon that if I dropped aggro on a mob it would one slap healers. Hilarious but dangerous. I’ve even had moments where as DPS i gotta keep moving around because fire pits would emerge from the ground so I had to be ready to spring out of there when it happens. Healer… well I’ve played healer. I honestly feel that people who play healer have it rough because its not fun imo and its not all that easy at times either depending on the situation. It was never really easy for me because I don’t like focusing on peoples health bars. I like to be in the action. I could almost understand why my friend would have to go for a smoke break after healing shadowfang keep with that one boss who nukes everyones health in one shot. Everyone is important in their own way here and there and everyone should be respected regardless. It is sad that in a video game people get so upset to flip out over a wipe or two. Reminds me of the people I work with. Always getting angry at passengers as if these passengers fly everyday. News flash they don’t and the same way it comes down to the gamers. Not everyone is on the game as much as these people who rage quit because people don’t know the fight. Some people actually have lives outside of the game to be taking a game to serious. I got a fiance and I work most of the day lol. Being a tank is great because I get into a dungeon asap or raid. I don’t like wasting time but at the same time I don’t like rushing through a dungeon because someone has to go somewhere. I actually like to learn the fight first hand. A youtube video won’t really help all that much. Experience is what helps.

 

The future holds great suprises.

The future holds great suprises.

So the morale of my rant is basically like the other guy said, Treat people with respect. Because in the end I might be your tank and instead of instant queue with me. You might see an insta kick. Also try new things guys. Its great to have DPS characters but also have a healer or tank on hand just incase because in all honesty its best to be versatile in gaming. It really is. In WOW I would have a paladin because he can heal tank and dps. So I was ready. Anyways thanks for reading my randomness ;D tell your friends about me

No Crossover Between DC Movies and Shows.

So I was doing my early morning browsing and ran into this article

http://www.newsarama.com/21628-no-crossover-between-dc-comics-tv-and-dc-movie-series-says-chief-creative-officer.html

Yes I know I am being very random at this point I never really post this type of article but I really got something to say about this and curious on what others think about this situation. I really feel that with out the crossing of these heroes and having to add new ones to get their point across with out using the ones set in play for the shows it gets all retarded in such a way. For me I really do appreciate the crossovers from time to time in a show or movie to show.

BuffyAngel

Who remembers Buffy the Vampire slayer? Even though in a sense it was cheesing imo it was a decent show and I really enjoyed it but what really made it so much better was when one of the major characters from the show left and made a spin off show called Angel which was also a crossover show and from time to time they would be in each others show making some events a bit more interesting on how they happened. This was crossover done right imo. Some other shows actually do it still today like Vampire Diaries with the originals.

no-arrow-dc-movies

I really wish the chief would really look over the details and get this going because this is a huge opportunity to get DC Universe really on the map when it comes to shows and movies. IMO they are already beating Marvel when it comes to shows. With some crossover and randomness between movie and shows it would really help them out. Guess we might never know how this would really play out though… thats my 2 cents.

SO THIS JUST IN ON DESTINY!

destiny_desktop

So the beta just started up 19 minutes ago. Its actually good to see that the game is going to have its moments but then again the game isn’t really the issue at the moment. Trying to get your codes and get into the PSN store is the actual case. Lot’s of crashes are happening through on the website and in the psn store its a bit ridiculous I decided to give it a rest instead of trying to race into the game but I really do want to get this download out of the way, its about 14 gigs so be prepared to have some space with in your hard drive for it. It also looks like you do not need to keep the Alpha version around in order to place being that its a whole new copy of the randomness.

If anyone is interested in playing with me later on in Destiny’s little beta event you can reach me at Syniax for PSN.  Add me so we can do this randomness all together.  On another note…

ARR_FFXIV_Logo

This game right here… Has been taking some of my time of gaming. It took a bit to get into it. I was on and off with it and with World of Warcraft getting a bit more interesting with in the year of this games release this game ended up in my backlog. I decided to tackle it once I figured out I had a free upgrade for my PS3 Edition and excited to actually play this on the PS4. Even better with the PS4 edition updated and all you can use your keyboard and mouse as if you were playing on the PC. My laptop really doesn’t cut it for gaming much nowadays so being able to play a fully functional MMORPG on a PS4 with keyboard and all made this experience worth my time. So now i’ve been messing around with this game for sometime and enjoy it. World of Warcraft has yet to inform us about whats going on in life and hopefully we will be seeing more details later on. My only concern is trying to get a hold of the collectors edition copy of the new expansion for WOW… anyways that is all for now more details and randomness on Destiny and FFXIV later:)

Gold Wireless Playstation Headset Review

ooo ahhh ooooo =O
ooo ahhh ooooo =O
ooo ahhh ooooo =O

ooo ahhh ooooo =O

So here we have it the new ps headset. I use to own some Trittons and they actually played very well compared to these but I will say this and the reason I chose PS headset vs the trittons. It came down to conveniences.

 

All the key ingredients

All the key ingredients

So the headset comes with of course… the headset a micro usb plug for charging a piece that connects into a usb port for connectivity ( sorry guys its not bluetooth) Also an aux cord for other epic randomness and a little pouch to stuff it all in… cept the headset I don’t think it fits inside there.

All this for a low price of 99 dollars!

All this for a low price of 99 dollars!

So I actually got this for 99 bux! Oh yes! My trittons cost me 150 dollars if memory serves me correctly.  As you saw in the second pic with the accessories that came in the box comparing to what came in the box for my trittons…

Whats the box for ... uggggh

Whats the box for … uggggh

So as you see the randomness of Tritton there is a box and I am no tech guru to actually tell you the full functionality of the box but I am assume that most of the epic sounds are translated inside there and comes out into your ears =O yessss it makes sense. Overall it was a pain to get the wires together because I will explain a run through of how tritton set up works… You have the power cord going into the box and into an outlet. Then you have the box as the main meetup for the majority of wires. One of them will be the USB that goes into your playstation another will be the optic wire that goes in the back of the playstation this makes for a nice mess when both wires are somewhat short and did not compliment my desk set up. Now you have this 10 foot cord that goes from the modem looking box into a remote area for the headset to control volume and set up and then another 20 feet of cord right into the headset… I had alot of cord laying on my lap most game nights. Ok maybe I might be exaggerating on the cord length but it was ridiculous even while i sat infront of my 50 inch tv in the living room I still had bundled up cord.

Loving simplicity

Loving simplicity

So my new PS headsets cured the clutter called Tritton in reality all I gotta worry about is the headphones on my head and a piece that plugs into the ps4/ps3/pc. It’s also wireless. Heres the catch though… battery life. The battery life is pretty decent but I’ve had times where I would have to swap over to the ps4 issued mic because my PS headset died in the middle of battlefield. It hasn’t happen much now that I am getting use to the whole charging it while I am not using it. I also read that it has Virtual Surround Sound… some might be asking “Well how does it sound Syn?” It sounds virtual… It took me a bit because in all honesty with my trittons I noticed a bit of difference compared to the PS Headset. I recall listening to footsteps as they came through in COD and camping in a corner like a punk with a shotgun because I wanted to see if I could get the drop on people with just sound while having my trittons on. It really did sound like someone was coming from behind me towards the side of me and then moving towards the front of me and BOOM shot in the gut… I win. However with the PS headset it really didn’t sound convincing and felt like it wasn’t really there. I might have to do some more comparing or maybe it was a bad night for it as far as my internet issue is concern ( Yea brighthouse and their internet is becoming horrible… keep getting dropped on the internet…bad) So I will try to see if its just some issue but I felt more confident with my Trittons on the field.

PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset-10

Notice that everything is basically on the headset, it takes some getting use to with button locality and all but its all there. I love it its not like the tritton where I had to hurry and grab the piece to mute myself if I wanted to talk naughty randomness to my fiance… >_> ( Oh  do not act like you don’t mute the mic from your friends when you speak dirty ) All the buttons are right there by your ear and ready and easy to use. I also LOVE the fact that I can use an Aux wire to connect it to my PS Vita and My ipod to listen to music. What is crazy is you don’t even need to charge the headset from my experience to listen to your ipod. You don’t even have to turn it on and music sounds pretty good on this headset.

PS4headset_021014_1280

Love the family like qualities

So my end result for this headset 4 out of 5. I really love these headsets for the simple fact that it works. I love how they are simple to get going and easy to manage. No messy wires everywhere or an awkward box laying on the top of the desk. One piece into the PS4 and the headset. If you are really looking for a decent headset that plays well as far as sound and communication these really work. They also work with PCs on top of that too! Do they work with Xbox? That would be sacrilege  but epic at the same time but for 99 dollars a pop. I recommend these headsets if you don’t have a gaming set.
