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.

witcher-3-reveal-gamer-ninja

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!

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

house-of-wolves-destiny-bungie

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!

XO Seven Headset Review

XO Seven Headset Review


Turtle Beach Ear Force XO Seven Premium Xbox One Gaming Headset

xo-seven-headset-review-turtlebeach-ear-force-one

The Turtle Beach Ear Force XO Seven Headset for Xbox One is a premium headset for gamers alike. It allows gamers on the Xbox One gaming console to independently use a headset without the drawbacks of previous headsets from the Xbox 360 or other Xbox One headsets.

The biggest feature of the XO Seven is the fact it does not require batteries. This is huge for a wireless headset. Not requiring batteries allows the gamer to play on and on. No recharging or replacing of batteries. The second huge feature of the XO Seven is that being wireless it does not require any audio wires to run back to the console. The headset is entirely controlled and powered through the controller.

When talking about the controller with Xbox One you will think of the headset adapter being needed. It certainly is still needed but with the XO Seven it is included. So this will save the gamer money when looking into a headset.  Currently the adaptor retails around the $24.00 mark.

Overall this headset is a godsend to any Gamer Ninja. The only drawback we can tag to this headset model is that it is slightly on the heavier side. It feels comfortable but it weighs in at a heavy scale than one would like. Not too bad but it is heavy on the head.

The bonus items would include a detachable microphone, a detachable emergency connection wire so active gamers will not break the connection wire and interchangeable ear covers which do something I have no clue at this time about.

Gamer.Ninja rates this headset at a 9.9 out of 10 stars.

In our opinion it is a must buy!
