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!

Going Ballistic – Left 4 Dead 2 Custom Map


Once again, Oran1 offers up a great video on YouTube. Oran1 offers us an inside look into the Left 4 Dead 2 custom map call Going Ballistic.

going-ballistic-left-4-dead-2-oran1-gamer-ninja

Watch here at Gamer.Ninja as Oran1 offers up some great gameplay that involves killing zombies in his latest YouTube release. Oran1 gives us an inside look into the Going Ballistic map for Left 4 Dead 2:

There is an interesting story behind this map. It seems it was designed by a group of 28 students from the University of Baltimore. Here is the story behind that:

Going Ballistic was created over the course of a single semester by 28 University of Baltimore students. The class was designed to simulate a work environment. Students were divided into nine half-teams, each responsible for one half of one of the five levels in the campaign. The instructor developed the last half-level. The project was managed by the instructor, with the help of five student managers. At the beginning of the project, no student in the class had any prior experience with Hammer, the editor used to develop Left 4 Dead 2 levels. As such, students had to teach themselves to use the editing software while completing their weekly milestones.

Here is the original Going Ballistic campaign trailer:

Thanks again to Oran1 offering us a great video review of the customer map Going Ballistic for Left 4 Dead 2.

Red Lake Review by Oran1 – YouTube

Red Lake Gamer Review – Gamer.Ninja


Red Lake is a gamer offered on Steam and Gamer.Ninja offers you an inside review of the game.

Red Lake is a horror shooter with elements of a quest. The details include the following: A protagonist works in a department that is looking for a variety of paranormal places in order to hide them from humanity and prevent someone from using them for their own purposes.

The immediate reviews of Red Lake offer something less than subpar. This game is not one which you want to partake within.

Oran1 on YouTube offers an inside look into the game and what details:

We here at Gamer.Ninja recommend gamers forgo purchasing this game based on Oran1’s recommendations.

 Thank you to Oran1 offering the great review of Red Lake. We assume it can save gamers money from purchasing a game which is not compete or worthy of being considered a “game”.

PlayStation Network Down & Flight Grounded

PlayStation Network Down & Flight Grounded


Hackers cause chaos today for Sony and PlayStation Network and John Smedley

playstation-network-hacked-gamer-ninja

Today the PlayStation Network was offline for the North American users. Hackers have claimed responsibility via Twitter and also the same hacker group has caused a major delay for American Airlines and Sony’s Online Entertainment President John Smedley. Today users of the PlayStation Network on both PS3 and PS4 received a message that the network is down for routine maintenance from noon August 24, 2014 to around 7:30pm Eastern time on Monday August 25th, 2014.

Shacknews.com has reported that both the PlayStation Network and Battle.net have been hit. They reported:

“The attack was foreshadowed when Lizard Squad pointed to a Twitch user playing Hearthstone. Minutes later, the group targeted a Dota 2 stream. A portion of Dota 2 servers have been affected, but there does not appear to be widespread outage at this time.”

Lizard Squad is to blame as it seems. Sony does acknowledge the events within their Twitter page

https://twitter.com/PlayStation/status/503577213690576896

Issuing this statement:

“Like other major networks around the world, the PlayStation Network and Sony Entertainment Network have been impacted by an attempt to overwhelm our network with artificially high traffic.

Although this has impacted your ability to access our network and enjoy our services, no personal information has been accessed.

We will continue to work towards fixing this issue and hope to have our services up and running as soon as possible.

We regret any inconvenience this may have caused.”

Here are some additional times lines from Shacknews.com

Update 4: Lizard Squad has now set their sights on Xbox Live. Xbox Support confirms that service has been affected.

Update 3:  A Sony Online Entertainment representative has issued a statement to Shacknews in regards to SOE President John Smedley having his flight diverted over a fake bomb threat. The statement reads "I can confirm that at this time the FBI is handling this directly." The rep added that no specifics could be offered, as this has now become a matter of national security.

Update 2:  An update has been posted on PlayStation.Blog confirming that no personal information has been stolen in these attacks. The DDoS attacks are persisting and the team is looking to resolve the matter as soon as possible.

Update: Sony has acknowledged the attacks on Twitter.

As of now it is being reported the FBI is involved. John Smedley’s flight was diverted and no further incident has been reported as of now.

Madden NFL 15 Preview

Madden NFL 15 Preview


Madden NFL 15 by EA Sports Preview and Review

madden-nfl-15-pass-coverage-gamer-ninja

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.

madden-nfl-15-release-gameplay

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.

madden-nfl-15-release-touch-down

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.
