Call of Duty competitive team, Complexity, Won $1 Million!by Brock Bila
   Call Of Duty has been hosting a tournament for 2 years now for Call Of Duty players, and 2014 is no different. The 32 finalists will compete on the Xbox One version of Call of Duty Ghosts, hoping to take home the top prize of  $1 million. This is some mad cash. Faze and Optic are some of the most known teams out there. But in the end Complexity won! Optic went out in the semi-finals.

   Ghost has not been a hot game. When it was came out, it was the latest and greatest thing to buy. Ghosts tried to hard on its features like creating your own character, the iOS and Android apps, leaning and all of the other details, but as the game went on, a DLC came out and the game got better. All of my friends and the friends of those friends said that the game isn't what it could have been. You have to think of how "real" it  is I say. They added moving objects around, which is a great and new thing to come t…

Bad Games: Sonic R

Image
Welcome to Bad Games, where I like to show off some of the worst games I've ever played or seen. Of course, by bad, I mean the game isn't fun. The graphics may be great, the sound effects could redeem it for others, but if you actually play it, it doesn't hold up.
Sonic R for the Sega Saturn   Now since I will be starting slow with some of these "okay games" I decided to kick it off with two poorly made things, The Sega Saturn and Sonic R. Both had great ideas and then those thoughts were carried on to future games, but neither sold well or saw a lot of investment for development of the system and game. I like this game, but a lot of people don't see the decency within the title. Now, I have played it for only short times, but the controls are "meh" and the graphics aren't bad. Being the first true 3D Sonic racing game had to be tough on development, having to code and rebuild a new engine with a system that needs a lot of unnecessary coding. Mar…

DEVASTATION DLC
          Number 2 DLC coming out for xbox on April 3rd. This DLC has 4 small-medium maps. And a really cool looking hybrid weapon. Also another extension to the Extinction saga.
(Map #1 Ruins)
          Ruins is a map that is in South America. In a Mayan temple. This map is a triangle type shape map. Towering over the temple is a massive volcano that is about to erupt. If some one from either team complete a field order they will get a kill streak that will cause the volcano to erupt and kill your enemies. (Map #2 Behemoth)
           Behemoth is a map that call of duty has never done before. The map is based of a earth excavator. With a big saw in the middle. This map is a medium-long range map. It's also really high up so be careful not to fall off. When you complete a field order you get a helicopter that you sit in with a mini gun and can just rain bullets down on the enemy. (Map #3 Collision)
          This map is a small-medium size map. It is a BIG boat th…

(3/27/14) Ubisoft Sale on the Nintendo eShop: Right now, most Ubisoft games are 50% off on the Nintendo eShop. Rayman, Rayman Origins, Zombie U, ESPN Sports, Rayman Legends, and much more. Wii U and 3DS titles are currently having the prices sliced in half while a few games are left in the dust. Almost every title is a 2012 or newer game, meaning the graphics are standing with some of the best looking games for the 3DS and a launch title for the Wii U.

Android Wear: First Look

Android Wear: First Look
   Android Wear was announced yesterday, and it is a whole new operating system by Google. Above, I show an image found on the developer site showing the "Ok Google" function on a square smartwatch. Multiple editions of the OS are available for different shaped watches. Apps developed for one system are universally compatible with other devices running Android Wear. Text is made centered so it will be visible through the square and circle displays. Google will release their own smartwatch soon some sources report, and the operating system looks promising as Samsung and other third parties continue to design sub-par operating systems to be compatible with their devices, but Google seems to want to put a stop to the limited compatibility. When the SDK is released, a better understanding of communication with other devices will be shown off in app development. A few apps are already compatible, such as Hangouts, maps, and most apps with notifications.
