The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt Reveal

The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt Reveal – Gamer.Ninja

Gamer.Ninja offers an inside look into the latest The Witcher release.  The latest release is Witcher 2 – Wild Hunt. The Wild Hunt comes out on 05/19/2015.


You can get an Xbox One edition which is called the Wild Hunt Collector’s Edition on Xbox One. Major Nelson explains:

The Witcher 3 is a deep and dense RPG edition of the Witcher series. It offers an open world gaming experience. It offers a huge open world gaming experience. Bigger than any other Witcher experience. The gaming world you experience is filled with fields plugged with foliage and townships where people are striving to get by. With a dawn to dusk cycle and weather to boot, The Witcher 3 offers a realistic real world experience for gamers. The mini-map is going to be key for you to navigate throughout the world. The world is huge and full of purpose.

The main story of Witcher 3 does offer some initial lackluster. Although it offers some potential for greatness, ultimately it lacks compared to the previous Witcher releases. You start out looking for Yennifer and Ciri. Geralt basically just runs quests to find these individuals. Geralt’s objective is to complete quests to gain information about the whereabouts of Yennifer and Ciri.

The highest accolade of The Witcher 3 is given to the actors who gave great voice contributes and dialogue during the gameplay. The downside to this would be having the execution of a role-play become something simple and less-complex than what I was expecting. The tradeoff, being something simple such as a meaningless fetch quest. The tasks requested are so simple that it makes it hard to journey on within the quest.

Witcher 3 Note: Ciri is more or less a complete stranger until the last quarter of the journey, which makes it more difficult when it comes to finding here than the game is focused on me finding here.

Witcher 3 gets everything right when you venture off the beaten path. You will see familiar faces in Witcher 3 that you know from Witcher 2. Assassination plots, underground turf wars, over triangles, and unexpected alliances are all part of these optional romps. You will feel that theses should be part of the main story. Aside from the side-quests, monster layers and bandit camps.

Witcher 3 Nugget: The best way to generate currency is to kill Foglets in the thick smog.

Your role within The Witcher 3 will help shape the land being destroyed by war. You decisions decided within the game will have a dramatic outplay within the endgame. Any decision within the game can have a dramatic impact in the final outcome. Keep this in mind throughout the game.

To progress within Witcher 3 is more complex than previous editions. Although a more superior than in Witcher 2, Witcher 3 offers better ways to restock, re-potion and use oils. You also get to have interesting potions, greatly enhanced mounted combat and the ability to cast spells.

The signs have been improved across to board, making them viable within every fight. You can now build a sign-focused Geralt. You will be able to re-send crossbow bolts back to the sender as a perk with Witcher 3. The new Skill System offered allows gamers the ability to craft new and huge armor and weapons that are still rewarding.

The real-time combat of Witcher 3 is responsive. Jump me is the analogy focused within the gameplay of Witcher 3. Come on and Jump Me so I can ascend upon them and complete my quest.

The Witcher 3 is an excellent RPG and combat game. We recommend this game and recommend our viewers here at Gamer.Ninja to try it out!

Prison of Elders Reveal – Destiny

Gamer.Ninja Brings You Prison of Elders Reveal – Destiny

The Development Team at Bungie-Destiny Reveals the Secretes of Prison of Elders on Twitch

The team for Bungie for the reveal included Professor Broman, Deej and Matt Sammons.


Prison of Elders is a Destiny End Game Activity. Close to what the Raid used to be, in the Expansion 2 which is House of Wolves within the massive MMO game we all know and love, Destiny. 

The Prison of Elders is an end game activity within Destiny which you will have to unlock as you play and complete other within the Reef. Once unlocked, you will have access to the Prison of Elders with the Reef main screen area which is known as the Director (to the right of the Reef access).


The base activity of the Prison of Elders is started at level 28, or known as a level 28 area. Fireteam is 1-3 players, is a cooperative and match making game and can yield you rewards of:

  • House of Judgment
  • Cryptarch Engram
  • Vanguard Marks of +6
  • Vanguard Reputation of +25

Destiny Nugget: Level 35 Arenas will have two modifiers per round.

Upon successful completion. Yes, match making. Prison of Elders has Modifiers, different bosses and offers an intense combat focused experience with some surprises. After this Prison of Elders offers high end challenge modes which are not match making and are level 32, level 34 and level 35. The names of these challenge modes which were exposed to us now:

Level 32 Arena Broken Legion – House of Judgment +200 and Armor Core


Level 34 Arena Urrox’s Grudge – House of Judgment +300, Weapon Core and Etheric Light


Level 35 Arena Skolas’s Revenge – House of Judgment +500, Armor Core, Weapon Core and Etheric Light


There are six total challenge modes (only three were shown as of now) with all of them rotating out within the level 35 Area on a weekly basis. Gamers can run the base Arena as many times as you like. The base level 28 Arena will rotate within the six Arenas being offered. The level 32 Arena, level 34 Arena and level 35 Arena can only be run once a week. So a gamer could run the level 28 Arena as many times as they would like and getting rewards each time but the rewards are much less but rewards non-the-less. The tradeoff would be that each time you select to run the level 28 Arena it will change to one of the six Arenas offered but you will be matched up with three gamers who want to win the Arena.

Destiny Nugget: The level cap on House of Wolves is 34 but there will be level 35 activities.

One of the Modifiers revealed is Trickle. This House of Wolves Modifier states – Recharge of Abilities is Significantly Reduced. Once you enter an Arena you will get to meet a Servitor that is a mouth piece of Varicks. Varicks is the overseer of the Prison of Elders. Much less, Varicks is a Fallen story agent seen in the original Reef reveal and the warden of the Prison of Elders. Varicks can remote controls the Prison of Elders through the servitor.


Once you start in the Prison of Elders you will be initiated by enemies. There is a revival time that your fire team will be able to be revived.

Destiny Nugget: There is Hive within the Reef Arena challenges.

Destiny Nugget: You can solo a level 32 or higher Arena.

The first part of the Arena equals 3 waves of enemies but you can revive your fire team friend after 30 seconds. Then there is the Defusing Splinter Mines which you have to defend. Once you defend and defuse the Splinter Mines the waves are complete and you start another and third wave of defusing Splinter Mines.  This is only the first round of the Prison of Elders Arena. Then you open another area of the Arena. Thus the three waves starts again. The waves can be any of the fractions of Destiny, Fallen, Hive, Cabal or Vex. The defend points can change and entail an important target which is an enemy target specified within the Arena area but includes checkpoints which need to be reached. This is very similar to a public event which an eliminate target is the key focus.

Destiny Nugget: The objectives which come within waves are similar to the objectives that need to be completed within Daily Events.

The Prison of Elders Arenas last five rounds. They are tough, as expected.

At least you get to start from the completed wave/round you expired from. Even though the Bungie fire team did not complete the experience, the experience is complete-able. That is what we need to know. There is an end to the game. All you need to know is that you just need master the end of the game.

Additional inspection:

There are a total of eight modifiers. Some additional ones are Brawler mode, which increase melee damage, Catapult Mode which increases your grenade recharge rate and some classics modifiers such as juggler and light switch. Basically modifiers make you switch up your weapons and tactics to complete the end game.

The Prison of Elders is no Raid. Let me rephrase that. The Prison of Elders is sort of a three man Raid but more of grind than a quest. Basically a regular strike on steroids but a little much more. The minions are plenty and the bosses take tons of damage and pretty much an end boss which sits and watches this all only to show up at the end and requires a beat down also.

Once you have defeated everything, you are treated to a wealth of treasures within Destiny. Although random, the gifts you receive are well worth the time spent to gather them.

Destiny Nugget: The level 35 Arena has six rounds to it unlike the lever 28, level 32, level 34 Arenas which are 5 rounds.


A List of New Modifiers in House of Wolves Prison of Elders

  • Grounded: Players take more damage while in the air.
  • Small Arms: Primary weapon damaged is doubled.
  • Catapult: Grenade recharge speed is greatly increased.
  • Small Arms: Primary weapon damage is doubled.
  • Exposed: Guardian shields are increased but do not replenish.
  • Brawler: Guardian melee damage is increased by 300%
  • Trickle: Abilities charge significantly slower.
  • Airborne: Players deal more damage while in the air.
  • Specialist: (suspect) Possibly special weapon damage is doubled.

The Reveal in Detail from Bungie:

Well there is more much more to come. Stay tuned to Gamer.Ninja for more on the House of Wolves and Prison of Elders.

Inside Trials of Osiris – Destiny

Inside Trials of Osiris – Destiny

Gamer.Ninja takes you further into the depths of the House of Wolves expansion by detailing the new Destiny PVP addition, Trails of Osiris.

House of Wolevs Release Date is May 19th, 2015

Destiny Nugget:  Trials of Osiris will take place on the same map each week. You will play the same map each week until the weekly reset. Closest to the pin will win the match though, if the match was to time out.

This week at Bungie they revealed some insider detail into the newest addition of PVP, the Trails of Osiris.

You begin Trials of Osiris by visiting Brother Vance to get a Trials Passage which is your scorecard within the weekly event.


Trials of Osiris is an End Game activity. You will need to assemble your own fire team.

Destiny Nugget: Trials of Osiris will last from Friday to the weekly reset on the following Tuesday.

Basically to advance within the Trails of Osiris you will need to ascend your Trials Passage card with a total of 9 wins but not exceeding a total of 3 or more losses. If you exceed a total of 3 or more losses you will have to turn in your Trials Passage card to Brother Vance for a new card and start over. You can do this as many times as you want.


Destiny Nugget: The Trials Passage card is located in your inventory of you character.

When You Win in Trials of Osiris

As you win you unlock different tiers of rewards. As you ascend within the ranks of the Trials of Osiris you will get something cool. To be exact, as you win you gain Trials Rewards which gives you the chance to gain new gear and weapons. Stone Tier is the first, then bronze, then silver and the gold. When you reach the fifth and seventh tiers there is a piece of gear or weapon that will become available.

Trials Supplies

Trials Supplies, which are known as Mercy of Osiris, are Destiny consumables which can be purchased with Passage coins which can drop from the daily PVP activity or just random drops from PVP after the release of House of Wolves. There are three different stacks of coins which can give you a forgive a loss, free win or give you a bonus win on your first try. You can use all of these coins on their own or all three at the same time.

The Trials of Osiris is a PVP event that is designed for those who are really into the Destiny PVP experience. Many know that Destiny and PVP does take some dedication and skill. PVP used to be something any Destiny gamer could come forwards in within a few hours but since its inception, Destiny Crucible has become something that now takes gamers time and experience to master.

Once you pass the two minute mark there is a target which you can capture to win that map. Finding this will give you a win when it comes to that match. Matches can last upwards of 15-20 minutes..

Destiny Nugget: You can get updated gear, weapons and emblems by completing Trials of Osiris matches as random drops.

LOL Destiny Nugget: Crucible design lead Lars Bakken – Target all your aggression towards this individual.

Here is a look into the Activity Rewards after a Trials of Osiris match ends:


The Trials of Osiris is pretty much the Iron Banner on steroids. It allows you to complete the Destiny End Game and gain an advantage with upgrading in armor and weapons. It is not easy nor is it hard. It is just Destiny Crucible and PVP. It’s as easy as you make it or as hard as you make it.

Destiny Nugget: If you back out of a match it will count as a loss within your Trials Passage card.

Join in and win. The Trials of Osiris is an extension of the Destiny’s End Game and you will want to play it!

House of Wolves Weapons

New House of Wolves Weapons

Gamer.Ninja offers you a comprehensive look into the latest and newest House of Wolves weapons. There are many new weapons being introduced. From Auto Rifles to Sniper Rifles, the House of Wolves expansion within Destiny will bring you many upgraded and cool weapons to take down the enemy.


Destiny Nugget: All new weapons in Destiny will start with 331 attack level but can be upgraded to 365


All weapons in Destiny, from release to now, can be upgraded to level 365. That means just what is says. All Destiny weapons can be and will be upgraded to attack level 365 with the aid of an Etheric Light item. More will be said later in the article about this. Shank burn will be a new perk of some of the weapons. This would note that there is a shank of considerable size that you will have to take down. Not sure there will be a Shank is a boss but the chance of higher minion Shanks surrounding a boss is possible.

How to Upgrade House of Wolves Legendary Weapons and Armor

Along with traditional materials, you will now need to obtain an item called the Etheric Light. You will be able to obtain the Etheric Light as drops when playing Prison of Elders, Iron Banner, Nightfalls and Trails of Osiris.


All weapons in Destiny, from release to now, can be upgraded to level 365. This is a huge point to take notice. All your old weapons you love will now be able to be upgraded to attach level 365. So now a person can take a fully maxed out Vex Mythoclast, insert your Etheric Light and boom! You will have a Vex Mythoclast maxed out at attack level 365. Bonus: As soon as you use a Etheric Light you will no longer need to re-upgrade the weapon. It will just take the weapons attach level it was at and bring it right to attack level 365. No more grind, upgrade, and then re-grind all over again.


You will be able to ascend your old Raid gear using a Etheric Light. Old Raid armor is still worth something. Did you keep your old Raid armor?


Reforge Ready Perk

The Gunsmith can reforge this weapon, changing its available upgrades but resetting any progression or ascension. To reforge, equip this weapon and speak to the Gunsmith.

The Reforge Ready perk will allow you to restructure any new House of Wolves weapon. Previous legendary weapons will not have this perk available, only the new House of Wolves weapons. Basically you bring the weapon to the Gunsmith and select to reforge weapon and bam! You have a different version of perks with that same gun. It takes one Mote of Light, 3 Weapon Parts and 250 Glimmer to “Reforge” a new House of Wolves weapon. You can do this over and over again until you get the perks you want on the weapon you like. Basically you can do this until you run out of materials to purchase the reforge form the Gunsmith. Pretty cool!


Destiny Nugget: The Gunsmith will be selling telemetries with the House of Wolves update


That is what we know as of now. As we find out more we will update you and keep you informed of the latest House of Wolves expansion of Destiny

Into the Reef – Destiny Exposed

House of Wolves Release Date: May, 19th, 2015


On Wednesday, via a stream on Twitch, we were given a great overview of the new Reef by Bungie’s best, which includes, but not limited to, Christopher Barrett, Deej, Gothalion.


The skinny would be that Destiny is about to have a complete and revitalized makeover. From your user experience to your gaming experience, the way you play Destiny is going to change. Even though it was said that there is a possibility of something of Raid quality/caliber being dropped, as of now there is no new Raid scheduled for the House of Wolves. That being said, there is going to be some great action packed stuff coming down the pike from Destiny with the House of Wolves expansion. Here at Gamer.Ninja we have outlined some of the Highlights and Destiny Nuggets in the following.


Notable Highlights after Viewing the Twitch Reveal

This week the gang at Bungie offered us gamers an inside look into the Reef. The Reef will be where the next and latest Destiny adventures occur. Deej is actually very cool! Main theme to House of Wolves and the Reef would be new perks and new weapons. Guardians can level up to 33 and up to 34 now if they play enough of the endgame. Weapons can be upgraded (any weapon, from release to now) can be upgraded to attack level 365. This is huge when it comes to game play and Destiny in general, although we knew it was coming. Still, it is what we have been waiting for.

Some added Reef Items to Note:

  • Xur can show up in the Reef
  • The Reef will offer Nightfall strikes, Weekly strikes and more.

Expand your Destiny adventure with a wealth of weapons, armor, and gear to earn in new story missions, three new competitive multiplayer maps, and a new cooperative Strike. Expansion II introduces a new competitive elimination mode in the Crucible and an all-new arena activity – The Prison of Elders. The Reef is open. Join the Awoken and hunt down the Fallen rising against us.

The Reef Explained

No Raid but a great End Game experience with both PVP and PVE.  Skill, activity, and nothing the same as we have experienced previously. There are multiple points to the Destiny endgame experience now and many ways to level up. The entire Reef was built from scratch. The Reef is pirate style and dangerous place. The reef will include your vault, postmaster and a self-contained marketplace. The reef will also offer the “Iron-Banana” which means Iron Banner. Also, look for a possible ghost hidden somewhere in the Reef. Additionally Grimoire info will not be any more detailed as it is now within the new release, but it was stated “at this time”.

Story Agents

Petra Venj – Queen’s Wrath She will bring you through the next journey.

You will have the abilty of knowing what you can get when you are playing the weekly challenge. Diversity and variety is key within the Reef and its drops. Also, you will be able to obtain a full set of Queens’s armor and weapons in Prison of Elders.

Surrounded by solar candles, Trails of Osiris will bring you the ability to buy new rewards, new passages and govern that new multiplayer event. This will offer consumables that will playout with the event and the event will be offered every Friday and for the weekend and re-set on Tuesday.

House of Wolves-Destiny Exposed in Detail

House of Wolves-Destiny Exposed in Detail

The New Expansion of Destiny is coming soon -The Hunt Begins on May 19th, 2015- and Gamer.Ninja Helps you Navigate Through It


We will lead off saying Destiny is, by far, one of the best games to come around in a long time. We have not been posting about Destiny because we have been playing it way too much.

The social aspect of the game is huge. A social aspect which no other game has produced in this fashion. With that being said, we move forward.

Bungie’s Destiny has brought gaming, in general, to a new level. It has brought new life to an industry that has been slightly stagnant for some time. The way you gather goods, the way you level up and the way you advance within your character has been defined in such a way that only the word "proprietary" would be the best way to describe the experience of Destiny. Bungie owns this game and delivers gamers a great user experience.

Destiny, for us here at Gamer.Ninja, has been an awesome game to play thus far. The Destiny Vault of Glass Raid was an experience that grew so many online-gamer friendships it's not even funny. Then Crota came to town and many gamers called in sick to work so they could become the first to beat his essence and existence. Seriously, this was happening. This would be the big picture. The lessor picture would be the grind. Destiny has put forth a grind like no other video game has. Amazingly, the purpose behind the grind is not to just level up (at least for us) but to gain the weapons we so desire. As of this point, I am still missing a third Black Hammer for one of my characters. I am playing Crota on easy like mad to gain this weapon. Funny huh?

OK, now that we have sped up to the future, here comith the House of Wolves. We will strife right towards the Raid. The Raid is everything when it comes to Destiny. Without the Raid you would not be able to advance to the highest level. To master the Raid is something that is second to none. If you master the raid you are seriously a Pro. Wither it is running the relic, toting the sword or just blasting off Gally shots, you feel as if you are part of it. LOL, the Gallihorn. That is a subject on its own. All my characters finally own one to each. The strive and struggles of Destiny are one’s own internal anguish and reward.

OK, the House of Wolves:

Biggest bomb would be that there is no new Raid. No Raid? Why?

 At this time, and timestamp, there is only pure speculation on what Bungie and Destiny are going to offer the general masses. Some online have made up their own distinction based upon here say and lore. So, we here at Gamer.Ninja will try and do the same. The House of Wolves (we will call it an update) Update will bring some new advancement(s). If there is anything we have learned so far about Destiny’s development crew (David "Deej" Dagueis) is that they side on caution with the game verses surrendering to the masses. Bungie is in it to win it, not in it to just bring up the next update. This is why we, Gamer.Ninja staff, have huge respect for the development team behind Destiny over at Bungie. Yes, Halo was great, but Destiny is better.

The House of Wolves release is something we feel is going to be bigger and better with adding in some much needed storyline that the masses have demanded. The VOG was a master plan, Crota was a ‘get us through this’, but House of Wolves will be the delay worth waiting for, we hope. The trailer:

The House of Wolves appears to have more storyline within it than the Crota saga ever had. This is what the community wanted and this is what the community gets. Community and social have been the two huge aspects that the masses have wanted, besides the masses wanting a new long and winding Raid attached.But!! No new Raid in House of Wolves? Bungie has this to offer:

"House of Wolves will have a new cooperative end game activity focused on variety, replayability, and skill – a new battle Arena called The Prison of Elders" Click Here

So, when it comes to the ‘insider’ or the leakage of the great, we here at Gamer.Ninja say “Just wait dude!”. Just wait. The developers have it handled and are learning each and every day what we, the gamers, want. This is something that has been lost with many other games but do we believe that Deej is for real on this one becasue he is listening. Not much detail, virtually none, in this post but we are watching and waiting and as soon as more factual data is leaked we plan on bringing it to. So far Bungie has this to say:

"The Reef will open to all Guardians, and you will join the allies of the Queen to destroy the traitorous Fallen from the House of Wolves. Over the course of the next month, we’ll be pulling the wraps off of all the new activities, modes, events, and gear you’ll have access to. Stay tuned to see exactly where your legend is headed next." Click Here

More to come on the House of Wolves!

Madden NFL 15 Preview

Madden NFL 15 Preview

Madden NFL 15 by EA Sports Preview and Review


Are you a gamer looking to get your hands on Madden NFL 15 next week when it is released on August 26, 2014?

Gamer.Ninja offers its visitors a sneak peek into the latest EA Sports release, Madden NFL 15.

Madden NFL 15 will be another epic release within the franchise of Madden NFL. Can anyone believe we have hit the fiftieth release in this franchise? Madden is still alive and well and it’s on the verge of releasing another edition.


Offering an insider’s looking into Madden NFL 15 we have to break down the latest offerings of the game. The first offer in the new lineup is the War in the Trenches 2.0. This feature changes the way you control the defensive line. It allows the gamer to strategically control its defensive line. EA Sports offers us an insider’s look into this feature:

Set the tone on defense with more control thanks to an all-new arsenal of pass rush moves, contain the open field with intuitive tackling mechanics, and play as a team with redesigned zone and man coverage logic all while being immersed in the play from the other side of the line, with defensive player lock cameras. Madden NFL 15 delivers on defense.

The next feature within the Madden NFL 15 lineup is The Gauntlet. The Gauntlet is

The next feature within Madden NFL 15 is the launch of the Madden Ultimate Team

Also we have Player Sense 2.0. In Madden NFL 15, Player Sense 2.0 creates the smartest playing Madden ever by improving player emotion, contextual awareness, head tracking, reach tackles and more.

Madden NFL 15 also offers many improvement in the following areas:

  • Pass Inaccuracy
  • Playcalling
  • Deep Dive: Connected Franchise (CFM)
  • Deep Dive: War in the Trenches
  • Deep Dive: Tackling Mechanic
  • Tackling Mechanic

Seriously, Madden NFL 15 will offer some improved features over previous releases but will these features really bring Madden NFL 15 beyond its predecessors? Only gameplay and time will tell. It will certainly be a feat to bring this franchise to the level of a 25th edition release. The obvious about Madden NFL 15 is it is geared towards those dedicated to the release of this epic football video game. Many, online, have said nothing really has changed since 2008. Madden NFL 15 is a rather dinosaur within the gaming industry and those who are dedicated to the franchise will pledge allegiance.  Those who are just coming into the age of gaming and football may also find interest but just like many other areas of gaming, reinventing the wheel does have an expiration date attached.


This aside, Madden NFL 15 does have some new and cool features and will give gamers another season, or year, to decide if they will continue to purchase the next edition of this franchises releases. Will Madden NFL fall to the wayside like some of EA Sports predecessors? Remember Tiger Woods? Honestly that was a cool game for those who were into gold but Tiger Woods had its time and place and maybe Madden NFL will. Fifteen would be considered a golden number and this could be the last and many gamers who are into the Football games will tell the tale of this franchises future.

Buy the game and find out if you are impressed is our final answer. Also, our final answer is to buy the game, play it and come on Gamer.Ninja and share you experiences.

Advanced Warfare Resolution

Advanced Warfare Resolution

Resolution Up in the Air but 60 FPS Secured


The resolution of Call of Duty’s Advanced Warfare is still a mystery but sources state the frame rate will be 60 frames per second.

"So we're 60 frames a second all the way. We are not talking about the – we're still waiting for announcements to come out in terms of where we're at with the resolutions, but I can tell you that the three year development title that we've had, working with everyone involved to make sure that we're getting it right… we're still optimizing the game, but even with where we're at right now, we're really happy. We're ahead of where we were last year, and we still have time, we still have a couple of months to go."

60 frames per second is a major increase and will significantly increase the quality with visualization of gameplay within Advanced Warfare over previous Call of Duty releases. We are assuming this will translate over to online multiplayer but are uncertain at this time. Many gamers know that higher resolutions and increased frame rates do not translate into better online gameplay but the effects of these advancement will help the industry focus on the overall quality of online multiplayer gaming. If not, players will vent and developers will have to listen.

Straight up, low resolution, tube style monitors and high internet speeds are where many like to game at as far as response times and dominating any given online multiplayer match. It does take time to feed images into a viewable source especially at 60 frames per minute. The resolution lag looms as a possible gaming issue but increased internet speeds help crunch this gaming curve.

Either way, Call of Duty’s Advanced Warfare is sure to be a huge increase in viewer quality over previous releases. It is still poised to be an epic release and one which Gamer.Ninja is waiting for.
