Playstation Experience 2015

Games, games, & more games!!! This was my first PSX (this is only their second one) and it was great. Tons of people, stickers, buttons, camera and of course PS4s. The much anticipated PlayStation VR was on show with many demos on hand. I was able to get my hands on a VR demo called Job Simulator which just mimic the daily operations at a job like making coffee, throwing sugar, and ripping paper ya know the normal. It was pretty fun having the option to look around and grab thing while actually seeing your hands. The crowds roared with excitement for the remakes of Final Fantasy 7 which looked AMAZING, with new combat styles & weapons. Ratchet & Clank will also be getting a remake which will include new boss battles, weapons, as well as a movies too.

The Street Fighter 5 special character was finally revealed who’s name is Fang. Yakuza (the game I never played but love) will have a part 5 and will be coming to PS3 & Yakuza Zero will be coming to the PS4. Sadly many games featured at PSX won’t be released till next year but luckily attendees get access to the betas of many of the games such as Kill Strain *loved it*, Dead Star, World of Tanks *Awesome*, Fat Princess and much more. YAY!!!  Now being the gamer that I am I tend to play more indie games, which is what I spent most of my time doing. One game which I originally seen at Indie Cade in NYC was EarthNight. In the game you play as either  Sydney (14yr high school girl) or Stanley  (freelance photographer) to save the earth which has been taken over by Dragons…I know right…that’s deep. Its beyond beautiful to look at and very fun to play.

My new fave game which I’m look forward to owning is Tumblestone. Its a match 3 puzzle game *I LOVE PUZZLE GAMES*. Both multilayer & solo will be available when released and on multiple platforms as well. Klaus is about an office worker who wakes up in a basement with amnesia, imprisoned in a world of mechanics looking for a way out. He’s an adorable lil character and the gets more challenging as you move along. I think I was in the 3rd chapter and got stuck…but I love a challenge! Life Goes On: Done to Death was a unique game: Kill yourself in order to reach the goal. Well of course not just die but to kill yourself to strategically to help you get to the other side but your dead self help you in special ways.

A tetris-ish game called Tricky Towers where you build a tower with tetris pieces up to beat your opponent in a race. I beat every stranger that challenge me lol. There Came An Echo is a voice control thriller/shooter which worked pretty well give the amount of noise in the convention center. Sadly I didn’t get to play is long as I wanted because they started their daily giveaways of which I didn’t win any. Now from SKA Studios also known for the Dishwasher games as well as Charlie Murder,will soon bless us with Salt and Sanctuary. Salt and Sanctuary is a hardcore RPG with full character customization, multiplayer interaction, hidden shortcuts, powerful bosses and of course some bad ass music as they always provide. The game has a dark undertone like most of their games which one let’s you know it’s a SKA game, secondly set it a part style wise from anything else *double bonus awesomeness* and third keep you invested to see what’s coming next.

Rockers Unite

It’s Comic Con Time!!! Along with the coming of the Con they have created something called Super Week where they have event related to Comic Con such as extra panels, after parties & videos games events. One of the Greatest companies in the world: Harmonix released one of the Greatest games in the world: Rockband and it’s the 4th one. Yes Rockband 4 is coming after a long hiatus & they had a party for it. Held at the Hard Rock Cafe  we were given the opportunity to play the game as much as we liked with own made up rock band (friends or strangers aka new friends). Seeing how I am slightly addicted to this game I was in heaven. Their whole dlc catalog was available for playing as well as the song list of Rockband 4. One of the games newest feature is the guitar solo where it provides you more control in creating your own solo. I decided to give it a try and sucked hard at it, think i’ll just stick to the drummers.The best part about the whole night was talking to the developers and finding out that all of the dlc that I bought & play for previous games will work with the new one. I will definitely be getting this game and rocking out on the drums like a rock star!

Finally On Time!!!

So this post is the only one so far that will actually be on time. Yay me!!! (Im working in getting better at this) As of today Samsung is releasing its new wearable the Samsung Gear S2. This new sexy (yes it’s sexy) watch I’m in 2 different style the sport & the classic. At a party held by Refinery 29 & Samsung at its Soho studio, the watch was on full display along with drinks, finger foods, music and a photo booth. The new watch runs on android where so it is now able to be used on any android phone unlike it’s previous counter parts. They are also giving you the option to have a 3G data connection (only with the sport model) so you can use sim card, making that watch a full fledged phone. The classic model will be bluetooth only.Hopefully has a longer distance than normal  which was about 30 feet. One of its coolest is feature is the rotating dial on top which let you select app with just a turn to the right or a turn to the left. Just like most watches you’ll be able to make phone calls, respond to text messages and view emails & of course there will be an app store for watch dedicated applications. Over all the watch is a fun new gadget for tech lovers ranging at a price point from 299 to 400 (depending on which one you get). Will I get it?  Probably not because the way my pockets to setup…..lol Plus I already have a Gear 2 with a built in camera, so that new watch won’t see my wrist anytime soon unless someone wants to buy it for me  *Hint Hint*.

That Hand Held New New

So I know someone, who knows someone, that got the hook up for me to attend a Samsung Event. This of course took place before the phone were released (so yes I’m late) and it was awesome. Samsung treated us pretty great there was lots of food, friendly & helpful faces and tons of giveaways. I got to see both the new smartphones the galaxy s6 edge Plus and the new note 5 as well as the Galaxy Tab s2.  Representatives from cell phone companies such as Verizon, sprint, and AT&T as well as OtterBox were also in attendance. They highlighted all the features from both phones such as live broadcasting straight to Youtube, video collage, apps & people’s edge for the S6 Edge + and the many great capabilities of the S pen for the Note 5. I have currently  both an Iphone & Samsung that I use daily, so I am not bias by any mean but right now I’m definitely leaning towards the Note 5 for my fall upgrade. Now for the new Tab S2 they were still trying to keep a bit of information under wraps about it because it wasn’t releasing any time soon but did see that it’s the size of three quarters stuck on top of each other which means it’s thin as hell. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next. Stay tuned in because next up is NYC Fashion Week!!!
