Gaming decision’s for 2015

Posted on Updated on

No More Double Dipping
No More Double Dipping

With all the future games I’ve been adding to the list can take sometime to complete, especially when your looking at fifty or more games with some of them been well over forty hours of game play, it’s going to be a little difficult to keep up. The strategy I have in mind for 2015 is kinda simple when you break it down to little or noting.

First and foremost comes the PC followed by PlayStation 3 and the Vita, yeah more title’s to keep track of, that’s great right. Steam has millions of gamers and with thousands games available at your finger tips, it can get a little overwhelming by times and by that I mean biting off more then you can chew. Not only do I have about sixty Future PC games but also have somewhere between hundred and sixty and eighty PlayStation 3 games, followed by eleven PS Vita games where do start and how do I finished all of them.

Steam killed me with all their sales they been having, it’s only lately that I’ve stopped purchasing games. Why keep buying games that your nowhere near close to playing and why waste your money at the same time. There’s no sense to it, play what you have at the moment and purchase it when the time comes.

Above me on the shelf there’s ten Retail games and on Steam eighteen for a total of 28 PC Game’s. After this years Dream Machine build I said finally, time to play catch up and when I looked at the list of games on Steam I almost puked knowing it was going to take awhile to finished these titles.

So far I managed to play Crysis 2, Doom 3 BFG Edition, Max Mayne 3, and at the moment trying to finish Far Cry 3 follow by Splinter Cell Conviction, because Far Cry 3 was taking to long and needed a change in game play, along with a few PS3 games that I can’t remember off the top of my head. How can you with almost two hundred titles in your collection, the collection is kinda on hold at moment though. Thank God right or someone because I couldn’t open them fast enough before newer titles showed up, at $4.97 cents who wouldn’t buy all of them.

 
So here’s what I have in mind for the rest of this year and 2015. No more purchasing Steam games simple as that and when the other Retail and Steam games are done, I’m going completely RPG Tendency Rogue only, even though there’s sixty Future PC Games on the list I’ll be playing titles like The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt and Guild Wars 2 especially Guild Wars 2 because I didn’t get to play the first one.

 
For the PlayStation 3 and Vita there will be definitely no more double dipping, sure I got a few PS3 titles that I already own on the PC but it’s not in Retail forum, and when the time comes to take a trip down memory lane, I’ll be more then glad there’s a copy on the shelf. Trying to hold on to something that’s going to let go eventually is completely impossible, but when you have a device like the PS3 you can always pop-in the Retail game and play away. Not so easily done when it comes to the PC, unless you have old hardware laying around.

Has of now the PlayStation 3 collection is on hold along with the PS Vita, even more so now that there’s not a whole lot of titles available for the PS Vita. I would’ve never bother with the PS Vita if it wasn’t from the cheap games priced at $4.97 cents. Didn’t get the PS Vita yet, but the girlfriend wants to buy it for a Christmas gift.

It’s wonderful when you have girlfriend that likes buying you devices like the PS Vita, so that’s kinda great if you ask me. The accessories can be purchased for little or noting and I have no problem picking up though accessories when the time comes. On the plus side having a portable device like the PS Vita can be nice when your going through rage with the PC, noting like playing a little game in the living room or outside when you just wanna get away from the computer and clear your mind.

Has of now I’ll be removing some PC titles in favor of the PlayStation 3 and the PS Vita, example The Wolf Among Us and maybe Oddworld New ‘n’ Tasty because there maybe some difference in level design when it comes to what platform you play the game on. Have to wait and see when the time comes, maybe I’ll get it on Steam for $3.99 one day who knows, sure it feels like I’m double dipping, but it wouldn’t feel no different then renting a movie.

Wolf Among Us seems like the game you would want on a portable device like the PS Vita. The game is clearly going to look good as it don’t seem to use the eye popping porn we get on the PC side.

I’ll try the best to even the odds but the PC will always be number one platform for gaming period, I still like my PlayStation 3 and PS Vita when the time comes but the future of gaming on the console has come to a end with me. The DLC, day patch’s, 20GB installation those days are over specially when you can get it from Steam when it’s on sale. Not really going to talk about that much as I covered that topic in a early post/article ranting about 30fps lock, 40GB installation and downloading the other half of the game when you get home… yeah!

How long will it take to play 28 PC Games? your guess is good as mine, it might take six months or ten months, but I can tell you this much anywhere in between the six and ten mark I’ll be pretty much well into The Witcher 2 Assassin’s of Kings, so the RPG’s is kinda going to start off with the ending. I would also like to point out that The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt is going to have 16 pieces of Free DLC content for the game.

Here’s the rundown with Quote:

In an open letter to the community, the co-CEO of CD PROJEKT RED announced today that there will be 16 free DLC packs for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Whether or not you are a fan of The Witcher games, it is great to see developers do stuff like this, can’t wait for my RPG Tendency Rogue to begin!

We love games. We love collecting them, playing them, and everything connected to that experience. Every time we reach out for a new release, we expect to be taken care of. We expect support if we encounter any problems, we love updates constantly improving the experience, and we feel really special when we receive free content that gives us more than we initially paid for. It doesn’t have to be huge, it can be an awesome skin for a character, or an extra sword, or armor.

Unfortunately this treatment is quite rare these days. As gamers, we nowadays have to hold on tight to our wallets, as surprisingly right after release, lots of tiny pieces of tempting content materialize with a steep price tag attached. Haven’t we just paid a lot of cash for a brand new game?

As CD PROJEKT RED, we strongly believe this is not the way it should work and, with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, we have decided to do it differently. Cutting to the chase, everyone who buys Wild Hunt will receive 16 specially prepared DLCs absolutely for free, regardless of platform. You don’t have to pre-order, you don’t have to buy any special edition to get them — if you own a copy of Wild Hunt, they’re yours. This is our way of saying thank you for buying our game.

Not only do I enjoy ranting about crap, but writing stuff like this, as it clears the mind on how to cleanup such a mess to what titles that should be purchased and on what platform. No more been confused by what games I should get and more no double dipping.
