Its been almost a week since Dead Island Riptide released. Reviews are out and for the most part they are positive. GoozerNation has spent 72 hours with the game and wants to say its been worth every penny. What’s new so far? What’s different? What makes this series so much fun?
Nintendo's newest update has got to be one of the most sought-after updates in recent history. The update itself does little more than speed up some menus and a few other performance issues, but the next-day release of the Virtual Console is something many think Nintendo should have had ready Day 1. Even though 90% of Nintendo fanboys will agree with you that the Wii U has had a rocky start, Nintendo is pushing back strong. Here are four things I feel that Nintendo is doing right (with a few critiques thrown in for good measure and to prove I'm not a wholehearted fanboy myself).
If you’re looking for something good to read, then I’ve got something for you, especially if you were a fan of the TV show Lost. My recommended book of the month is 14, written by Peter Clines. 14 takes place, for the most part, in an apartment building in Los Angeles. When I told that to my wife, she was like, “Oh, like Melrose Place.” Well, sure, in that 14 and Melrose Place both centered around people who lived in the same building. But 14 is much more like Lost, in that a group of people, seemingly unconnected, come together and discover they aren’t in Kansas anymore.
Yesterday, Goozex introduced the idea of InstaSwap to the Goozex community. I like the idea of the InstaSwap: allowing Goozex traders to make 1:1 trades by offering one game in exchange for another game. I like this idea mainly because I like getting new games, which hasn't happened for a very long time. I haven't received a game through Goozex since June 2012 and that was a Tiger Woods title. I do see the potential for InstaSwap to take over Goozex and eventually replacing both the queue system and the auctions, which I view as a good thing. The remainder of this article explains why I think InstaSwap could help pull Goozex out of it's slump.
Battlefield 4 is coming this fall. Some gamers are hoping there will be a few changes. Others are eagerly awaiting the series to continue in the same direction it has been going. The Goozex community has been polled and there a few changes some of the hardcore fans would like to see. The biggest question is, will Battlefield 4 continue to be different enough from COD?
Judging by the screenshots, Battlefield 4 is looking like one gorgeous game. A game you might not want to take home to your mother for a long leisurely chat, but a game you wouldn't mind taking home for a wild weekend full of non-committal gun blasting. Go ahead and click away on those screenshots, you know you want to.
