What Will You be Playing Next Week?

tf-video-bg

Well people, the hype is alive and well in my circles.  It seems all of my friends will have Titanfall the minute it releases.  I expect to see plenty of Titans falling on Tuesday, but for the people  not into that what will you be playing next week?  I know that Dark Souls 2 will also be releasing on the same day.  I’ve been looking at the new Plants vs. Zombies.  Might give that a shot this weekend.  I also read that Call of Duty: Ghosts’ multiplayer will be free this weekend for Xbox One & 360.  No harm in finally giving that game a try.

As for weRgamerz updates:

Expect a couple of uploads this weekend.  As I’ve stated before, I have switched to more of a once a month kind of thing.  I don’t know how many videos will be released at once, but I let them all go at one time, and run away for the rest of the month.

Enjoy!

A Change in Scope

Intro-2b (1)

It’s been a fun but bumpy road for the weRgamerz crew.  When DC and I came together to start this DC wasn’t working full time, and I wasn’t a father.  Fast forward to now and well….everything changed.  Time is a precious thing.  It’s funny how today I can share a blog post with (potentially) millions in a matter of seconds, but still can’t find the time to write it.  I had big dreams for where this brand was going.  I still believe we can get there, but I can’t do it alone…at least not in it’s current state.

I don’t want to get into the business of over promising and under delivering.  That just isn’t my thing.  I’ve tried to fix things by adding another blogger, but we all suffer from “noTIMEatALL” problems.  So, I’ve decided to re-visit the scope of weRgamerz.  I don’t want to quit entirely because it’s fun sharing these stories with you.  It’s fun doing the commentaries and sharing my gameplay.  The love (and hate) messages I receive on YouTube were sometimes the highlight of my day!

THE CHANNEL

I (Wes) will start back making posts on YouTube via a NEW weRgamerz channel.  Our current channel has some weird issues that we tried to work out with Google/YouTube, but we don’t have enough subscribers for them to care.  I know this pretty much means I have to start ALL OVER AGAIN, but maybe that’s a good thing.  It will give me a fresh start in a way as the content will be a little different.  I will post a mix of Xbox One and Wii U footage…let me explain before you give me the “F Wii U” talk.  I will NOT be posting Super Mario or Zelda lets plays.  I will not torture you like that.  The Wii U footage will most likely end up being funny intros or outros…..though an occasional rage sessions might be shown for your entertainment.  My posts will not be weekly like I attempted in the past.  I will probably only post 1-2 times a month.  This has a lot to do with lack of time, but I believe this will also make the commentaries a little more interesting.  I will have more to talk about in a short period of time.  Also notice I said Xbox One above.  I currently plan on holding off until Titanfall is out.  If BF4 was such a technically terrible game maybe I would’ve have made the jump sooner.  In the meantime, I might post some of my BF4 matches from the Xbox 360 jus to have SOMETHING up.

THE BLOG

I will still posts random gaming news that I find interesting.  We still don’t have any plans of becoming a news source for you.  We will start to become a hub for YouTube gaming videos and commentaries.  This will not just be my content.  I will be featuring other channels.  One in particular will be my IGZ family (check us out!).  There will be plenty of others also.  I will try my best to pick low profile channels with high quality content.  I will also start back doing my “Gamerz Talk” audio blogs and loading them here.  This will be once a month.

Thank YOU

To anyone who takes the time to read a post, or watch even a minute of a video…thank you.  You don’t have to share your time with us, and trust me we have a HUGE respect for your time.  I hope you all will continue to run with us in our new form.  At the end of the day, weRgamerz is passion rather than a job.  A hobby I love.  I don’t really care if it takes off and becomes a viable business.  I just want it to be fun (which it is!).

Next Gen is HERE…..why I’m not here with it.

Next Gen

I’ve checked out both the PS4 and Xbox One reveals. My reaction….hglahkghdlhhfjhfjhbkaj!!!! These “thangs” here! I got to have one. Where can I preorder? I have a personal agenda against Gamestop (they are NOT for gamers or their employees for that matter!!) so I ran with Amazon. The plan right now is to get both. I don’t appreciate missing out on good games due to dedicating my soul to one devil console. “1000 in one month doesn’t sound to smart Wes. You are expecting a baby in July. Plus….you’re already pretty broke without said baby.” Damn! I’m right…I am broke. I have to choose. Granted I will just by the other one later, but I want them both right away!

After some careful thought and meditation my decision…Xbox One. Both consoles are perfect in many ways. The games that each have coming over the next year or two look promising, and Sony finally fixed their controllers which was my only gripe with them. Still, the Playstation 4 didn’t have a lot of the other features that the Xbox One was showing off or they weren’t showing them off at the time. The entertainment aspect of the Xbox One proved to be an easier sell to my wife. I could spend $400 just to play games or spend $500 to play games and control my TV, stream countless apps, and play games. Yea my wife loves the TV. Plus I lose my tv remote a lot. The son will love some of the Kinect games….yes this will be a way easier sell.

Man…babies are expensive. I think I’ve bought 2 Xbox Ones worth of formula over the past two months. When I made this preorder we had a freaking stash of diapers….we still have that stash but he has outgrown them. I see my savings slowing dying…how am I going to pay for this next gen console greatness?? I could sell this, stop buying that, and save up on the such and such….but it is just a game console. Dammit!!! Don’t do this to me life! I don’t like having proper priorities! Let me carelessly buy this Xbox One. I NEED it!!!! Sigh….I do have my Xbox 360 still. I could just run with that for a lil while longer. Man…I really wanted to play BF4…wait that’s on the Xbox 360. Well I hate that I will miss out on Titanfall….oh that’s on the 360 too? Well Destiny is the one to look out for…dammit!!! Are you telling me there is no rush to go next gen??? That my family and financial standing is more important than 60 frames per second and “Xbox, on”? Nah bruh….

Man this is tough. Amazon is asking….”Are you sure you want to cancel your DAY ONE XBOX ONE?” Why couldn’t you just cancel when I clicked cancel? Now I have to meditate all over again. No Wes, you know this is the right thing to do. There, I’ve canceled…that wasn’t that bad. Grand Theft Auto comes out next week! I’m good man! What do I tell people though? I told everybody I had my preorder months ago. Even ran my big mouth on the Youtube. Aw man….well there are plenty of logical reasons I guess. The first batch usually is the worst batch. Who wants a system just to send it back due to manufacturing issues right? The launch line up on both isn’t that strong anyway…but I want a uuuUUUUUTTTTttrrrraaaa COMBOOOOOO!!!! Oh well, it will still be around when I pick it up. Plus I still got my trusty Xbox 360 and a promise of support for the next two years. No way Microsoft will drop us like they did Zune, WP7, Silverlight, and etc… Yea, this sounds good. I’ll just run with that.

Hands On with GTA V – Youtube Monthly Feature

Alex and Daniel of IGN got the chance to sit down and play the upcoming Grand Theft Auto V.  Based on the video above, this game is pretty much perfect (so far anyway).  There seems to be so much going on in this game.  It’s just insane.  Rockstar has also addressed my only concerns which was the combat.  Taking cues from their previous releases (Max Payne 3, Red Dead Redemption) they have managed to take everything we loved about these games and add them to everything we already loved about GTA.  When you have some time make sure you check this out as well as weRgamerz’s reaction to GTA Online.

This is our Youtube Monthly Feature….it was definitely a BF4 video at first, but GTA V has trains.

The Holidays are Coming…A Gamerz Dilemma

Next Gen

It has been a looonnngg time since I’ve had a holiday season like this.  It’s hard enough picking out the two or three games I want for Christmas, but I have some major thinking to do this time around.  Our next generation consoles are coming in a couple of months, and with them a few games that I NEED in my life (I’m looking at you Killer Instinct!).  Now before I go any further I have to admit that I already have my Xbox One on pre-order.  I pre-ordered my day one version the first day I was able to, but even though I am definitely picking up my newness this November I question how much I’ll actually use it.

Now lets get one thing clear….I WILL play Killer Instinct.  My Xbox One will certainly see action all the way through to the rest of this year, but it will not be the same as it has been in previous generation jumps.  For starters, current gen consoles are still getting games that I want to play.  I’ll even be more specific and say that my gaming life will still be dedicated to Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.  This game will still be fresh, new, exciting, fun, and only available on current gen consoles.  To add more doubt to my situation, most games I want for my Xbox One will be available for my Xbox 360.  The only exception to that rule being Battlefield 4 cause lets be honest, BF4 on current vs. next will not be the same.  So, with all my free time being thrown at GTA Online how the hell am I supposed to find time for an ULLLTRAAA COMBOOOOO!!!!!?  This isn’t even the whole of it.  All of my friends are waiting to buy the new consoles.  I don’t know of one person I regularly play with that has pre-ordered the newness.  This is a problem.  A while back I wrote a post on how gaming online with my buddies is my “man time.”  This is how I hang with the fellas.  If I decided to play the Xbox One, I will automatically miss out on half of the reason I play games.  This is a very new problem for me, and I’m assuming most other console players as well.  I can’t think of another console generation where online communities played a key role in the gaming experience.  The jump from the original Xbox to the Xbox 360 was simple.  Xbox Live wasn’t a big deal here.  Just about every game made these days has some form of online multiplayer.  The ones that don’t are never as popular as the ones that do.  I tend not to own a large collection of games.  I try to focus on games that I can play with friends.  Add in Xbox parties, the friend list, etc etc.  I have no friends on the Xbox One…….and that’s sad.

My last issue with this holiday season might be the one that hurts the most.  The best games that they have shown so far (in my opinion of course) aren’t even coming out this year.  I’m excited to play Titanfall…..spring 2014.  Destiny is going to be AMAZING…..summer 2014.  The Division might be the game I’ve dreamed of playing…..winter 2014.  Have I made my point?  Battlefield 4 is the only game I’m truly anticipating.  Sure, there are other decent looking games coming.  Ryse looks pretty cool.  Project Spark looks like a blast….but not a “I gots to have this one day one” kind of blast.  To keep it blunt, none of these games have shown me why I should stop playing GTA Online to take time out to play them instead.  Matter of fact, GTA Online has made me rethink what I should expect from a next generation game period.  That’s deep.

What’s a gamer like me to do?  I want the newness.  I’ve always been that way.  With the exception of early childhood systems “SEGA!!!!” I never hold on to last generation hardware.  I jump on to the latest and greatest and never look back, but this time it’s different.  There are a lot of things to consider.  Maybe I need to learn to be more patient….or maybe I just need some new friends.  Either way I have a lot of thinking to do over the next few months….sadly I will not have time to do that thinking.  I will be to busy robbing banks and manipulating the stock market in Grand Theft Auto….it’s a tough life for a gamer.

Console gaming has come a long way since my Sega Genesis days……

A Change is a Coming (weRgamerz Update)

Intro-2b (1)

So maybe you haven’t noticed(check us out!), but there hasn’t been a lot of commentaries on the channel lately.  Just gameplay and good music.  Well don’t worry friends because that is about to change.  There has just been ALOT going on over the past few months.  The biggest being Wes having his first kid.  Since he has done the majority of commentaries up til now, that should pretty much explain why we haven’t had any lately.   DC One has stepped up to the plate and provided a commentary, and plans on providing more in the future, but there’s more going on in the background.  Change is-a-coming and  weRgamerz is getting an UPDATE!!!

With the next gen approaching (and with it a host of new games) we decided that the channel should update too.  We’ve got new intros, better commentaries, more music, and will be adding another blogger.  We are currently planning to unveil some of these changes this week starting with a group commentary and a new intro (Don’t hold us to that…we are pretty lazy).  Like every other channel We will lose our lives playing and uploading GTA V/GTA Online.  We are unnaturally VERY excited about that game!  We will also be loading BF4 beta gameplay and have the Xbox One on pre order, so this will be a very exciting few months.  There is also a chance that you will catch some Diablo 3 gameplay courtesy of Wes, but let us not get to far ahead of ourselves here…I mean an MMO on the Xbox 360…we shall see.

We also wanted to take out time to say thank you to the people that follow our blog and youtube.  There aren’t a lot of you compared to other blogs/youtube, but the fact that there are people out there that enjoy our content enough to waste their time with it watch and read means a great deal to us.

So thank you!

We would give you a cookie…

but Wes ate it.

It was a REALLY good cookie too.

One Day E3….One Day

No love E3...

No love E3…

E3 is right around the corner.  Come June 11-13th I will be anything but productive.  Whether at work or at home, I will be fully engaged into various live blogs and streams.  This E3 has the potential to be the most exciting E3 event we have seen in a veeeerrrrryyy long time (at least a billion years right?)

The only thing that bugs me about this E3 is what bugs me every E3….I’m not going.  You heard it right, WesdaRuler aka #MrNevaMissAParty was not, has not, and will not be invited to this event.  Word on the street is I’m not that popular.  Ha! My blog gets three a million views a day….I’m popular dammit!  That’s not even counting the hundred gazillion views I get on our youtube channel, and my thirty five….thousand followers on twitter via @WesdaRuler (follow me!).  It’s crazy, I know.

So like every other E3 before it, I will sit at home and watch the events unfold.  After all the excitement has ended I’ll get on Xbox live with the homies and complain about how I should have been there.  It’s the #hardknock life for us baby!

So now that I’m done crying for no reason venting I want to share some of the places I will be getting my E3 gaming news from.  I imagine a lot of you will also be watching the event from you home/job, so why not share resources?  Check my list below….

  • Edutainment – I just recently started to follow Katy, but she will be at E3 this year (awesome!).  Be sure to follow her blog and her twitter @Katgoodman7.
  • Ignorantgamerz – This is extended family right here!  Even though I don’t think they will be at the event, they will be watching very closely and posting various IGZ Reports via youtube.  Also be sure to check their site here.
  • Me! (wergamerz/WesdaRuler) – We already know I won’t be there (conspiracy!), but I will be posting my reactions via @WesdaRuler and on our youtube channel weRgamerz.  Join me in my madness!
  • Wolf’s Gaming Blog – I generally go here for game reviews, but I imagine there might be some type of review for this year’s E3.  If not, you should follow just for the game reviews! Blog

If there are any I missed please be sure to list them below, but please try not to load obvious ones. (G4, Joystiq, IGN, etc..)

If there is ever a year that Shenmue 3 gets announced I won’t just be there….I will jump on the freaking stage.

Monster Hunter 3 U: Feel My Rathalos

No Monster Hunter is complete until you have battled a Rathalos. Not the strongest of the line up, but definitely one of the biggest faces of Monster Hunter. As for this fight….we kinda run through him and his lovely Rathian wife. Wes only talks for about 3 mins, so enjoy the gameplay!
