8bitdo released a series of bluetooth gamepad controllers that look and feel like the old SNES and SuperFamiCom controllers from back in the day. From the flat finish gray body, to the rubbery shoulder buttons. A sense of nostalgia is immediately present the moment you grab these controllers.
Season 4 of Overwatch Competitive ended right before the Anniversary event and Season 5 kicked only 2 days after. Without much time to rest and with the grind for Anniversary lootboxes on our minds, we decided to do our placements within the first week.
Congratulations to Long Live Play PH for their new store opening at the Ayala Malls the 30th along Meralco Avenue in Pasig city. And with a new store comes a huge wave of novelty items of gaming and geekery. Check out some of these awesome Overwatch shuriken spinners.
We check out the first 2 hours of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on the new Nintendo Switch in another Backseat Gaming session at the GG Network studio. Thanks to Ryvaeus for lending us his Nintendo Switch for these videos.
The footage used in these videos were recorded when season 3 of Overwatch competitive first started back in the first two weeks of December 2016. It's some of the last few videos we have that Will was a part of. And since the 4th season of competitive just started, I thought to throw them up despite not getting the highest rank. It was still pretty fun.
We're still going through a ton of videos that need to be edited but most of the January Overwatch recording sessions have been edited and uploaded. Most of which were Arcade Mode lootbox grinds with some of the GG Network partners.
All-in-all this was a good year for Warframe, with a string of major patches that brought in much needed fresh air. While some of the more hardcore players may cite the changes as “the devs coddling the noobs,” I believe that this is just part of the natural progression for a game that’s trying to acclimate to a growing playerbase with varying skill levels.
At the end of a depressing year filled with scandal, regulatory threat, closed studios, labor malpractice, and broken launches, The Game Awards gave us some hope for 2019 in the form of big announcements.
I was able to play Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice at a PlayStation event and the posture system plus the various gadgets found in the character’s prosthetic arm got me excited for From Software’s next title.
