Boss Battle – Disappointing Video Games

There are really bad video games. Really, really bad video games. However, Rizz, Bobby and Chachi all describe video games that looked great that failed to meet our expectations.

Did we say a game that you personally liked? Did we leave a game off of the list (I know I did).

Rizz’s Most Anticipated: PS4 Exclusives

Now, I could easily sit here and go “HERE ARE MY TOP GAMES I’M MOST ANTICIPATING” and you guys all probably know Mass Effect: Andromeda would be on that list. However, since I am the one here to have bought a Playstation 4, I guess you can say I’m Insert Coin’s exclusive on counting down the PS4’s exclusives coming down the aisle in 2016.

Street-Fighter-V-620x350

5. Street Fighter V – Come on, you were shocked in 2015 when you heard that Playstation 4 got the rights to be the exclusive home to one of the biggest fighting franchises in history. Don’t lie. Hell, when I heard about it I had to double check the source. But for Sony to get the rights to Street Fighter V and make it their own little baby is a cool thing for people, like me, who own a PS4. Now, I’m not really a fighting game fan but it will be interesting to see if I pick this up or not.

The-Last-Guardian1-620x230

4. The Last Guardian – FINALLY! For the past few years, Sony has had hell to pay talking about and pushing back the development of The Last Guardian, from the same guys who made my Game of the Year (and PS4 exclusive) last year, Bloodborne (Japan Studio). What isSony’s E3 going to be like this year when there’s no Last Guardian rumors or setbacks?

3. Uncharted 4 – I’m interested in this game for one reason, E3. Uncharted 3 is much like the Sony E3’s video of Uncharted 4. Before it even started, the video had some major setbacks and faults and glitches and everything. However, once the video started, you can see the giant landscape that awaits you when the game comes out in April.

No-Mans-Sky-18-Mins-Init_07-06-15

2. No Man’s Sky – Seriously? You thought I was going to forget about this gem? Honestly, if I saw more of this game my head would explode. Everyone watched it. E3, Stephen Colbert, a whole bunch of other people saw what No Man’s Sky has to offer. An open massive open-world sandbox that lets you control anything and everything that you find and doesn’t have a story to tie you down? That’s an amazing thing to have and will be an amazing time-waster once it is released.

1. Horizon: Zero Dawn – You want one picture to show you my excitement for this video game?

horizon-zero-dawn-screen-01-us-15jun15

It’s one thing if it’s you fighting regular dinosaurs…but…you play as a lady after the world as we know it got destroyed and have to fight…..robot. dinosaurs. ROBOT. DINOSAURS. DINOSAURS THAT JUST SO HAPPENED TO BE ROBOTS. And you’re only weapon (or the only one I can see here) is your trusty bow and arrow.

For both PS4 and X-box One, the name of the game in 2016 is “EXCLUSIVES” and from PS4’s lineup, it sure looks good.

Rizz Rant: Whining About SMASH

This week Nintendo announced the final three DLC names that are coming out soon. Final Fantasy’s Cloud (everyone knew about that one), another character from Fire Emblem (Corrin) and, yes, Bayonetta. Yippy! Right?! WRONG!

Bayonetta

I’m sure you guys are upset. I know you are. At first, I was right there with you wondering “Hey, where’s Knuckles? Where’s Shovel Knight? Where’s King K. Rool? Where’s Snake? Where’s Rayman? Where’s Goku? Where’s Krillin? Where’s Nico Bellic? Where’s Peppy? Where’s Waldo? Where’s Dr. Wiley? Where’s Metal Sonic? Where’s Tails? Where’s the Contra guys? Where’s Q*Bert? Where’s Conker? Where’s Bubsy?! Where’s (enter name here)?”

Then I realized something, maybe it’s not for us to tell NINTENDO who they should and shouldn’t have on their games. I mean, they are Nintendo after all. They have been doing this since before you and I were probably born. Do you guys remember when the outrage was about Tomogachi Life and how many people wanted same-sex marriage/adoption in the game? What did Nintendo do? Didn’t give in to people’s demands and, actually, still made sense while denying Tomogachi Life.

Nintendo has been doing things like this for years, boys and girls. They’re going to make great and revolutionary games and then they will make decisions that most of you won’t like but they know one thing: YOU’RE STILL GOING TO PLAY THE GAME! YOU’RE STILL GOING TO ENJOY THE GAME! YOU’RE STILL GOING TO BUY THE AMIIBOS WHEN THEY COME OUT! So it doesn’t really matter who they put in the last DLC…

You know what? This thing goes deeper than just Smash and Nintendo. Look at the backlash Mortal Kombat is receiving for who they have in their upcoming DLC. A Xenomorph from Alien and the guy from Texas Chainsaw Massacre are in the game and the first comment I’ve seen wasn’t praise and wasn’t excitement…It was anger. Anger because there weren’t characters that were already in the series (that, honestly, nobody really knows) instead of horror CLASSICS that are known for blood and gore. Not only that but to have multiple Alien v. Predator matchups. HOW CAN ANYONE BE ANGRY ABOUT THAT?!

MK-X-season-2

Someone please tell me who else would you like in Mortal Kombat? Friggin’ Stryker?

Rizz Plays Minecraft: Story Mode Ep. 2: Assembly Required! (Part 1)

It took me this darn long to realize most of these Telltale-style games have a thing for weird jokes and puns. For instance, the title that I just said “Assembly Required” and wouldn’t you know? Your objection is to find people that are needed. How convenient!?

In this video, I recap what you all missed in the last episode by going through the entire catalog and show you how unique my game is, as compared to other people that play this game.

Join me next week where I continue my journey and, yes (of course) get lost in the process.

Video game themed things from around the Internet…net…net!

Ladies and Gentlemen, it is your favorite post on the Internet today, at this time, on this website, Video game themed things from around the Internet…net…net!

Not sure that anyone would really want to make this transformation but from Woman to Trevor from gta v….

Wow. Just wow. Also not going to lie but I got distracted by her dog.

Last but not least,

Rizz brought this awesome rapper to my attention. None of that statement is sarcasm. I bought the track and you can too. http://yungtown.bandcamp.com/

Ive listened to it too many times to count since I got it.

That’s all the time I have for this week’s edition of Video game themed things from around the Internet…net…net! Tune in next week for another leg of my journey!

 

RIZZ RANT: Free Kojima!

konamiLast night at the Game Awards, Geoff Keighley announced to the crowd that Hideo Kojima, the creator of one of the best games of 2015 Metal Gear Solid V, was not able to attend. Now, Kojima was not sick, injured, had a family emergency/death, or just didn’t want to attend. Actually, I’m pretty sure Kojima would be there if he wanted to.

Konami, the big piece of shit company they are, decided to BAN Mr. Kojima from attending the event and celebrating the game that HE made, you know, the “HIDEO KOJIMA GAME” Metal Gear Solid V? That game? Yeah, he wasn’t there because Konami didn’t want to be there.

In fact, they took it a step forward and their lawyers told Kojima that if he were to show up, he would be sued.

I am not the only one with a problem with this. Geoff Keighley stated, “…It’s disappointing and it’s inconceivable to me that an artist like Hideo would not be allowed to come here and celebrate with his peers and fellow teammates.”

I’m sorry, if I spent my hard-earned time, blood, sweat and tears in something one-twelfth as good as a new video game that everyone friggin’ liked only to have the group that I helped put on the friggin’ map I would not just be this mad, I would be furious. Especially as we hear the backtracking that Konami has been doing for the past year about Kojima’s status. Remember the party they threw for Kojima? Remember the “His team isn’t leaving, they’re just ‘taking a vacation’!” bullshit? Remember how we laughed it off and go “Oh Konami! Look at these hound dogs trying to make light of a situation!” There’s no way they can make this go away.There’s no Konami Code to punch in to make this go away, guys.

We here at Insert Coin to Begin (especially myself) would like to extend a congratulations to Hideo Kojima and HIS team on all of the success that HIS GAME produced over the year. Whether it was E3, Playstation awards, or the Video Game Awards.

Thank you, Mister Kojima. You deserve to be awarded for your talent.
