SG Encore

 

So it may be no secret to many of you that Skullgirls is soon going to be delisted from Xbox Live and PSN services on December 31 of this year thanks to Lab Zero and Autumn Games severing ties with Konami. If this is news to you, then I suggest you check out the explanation from Mike Z himself. As a result of all of this, Mike Z basically had to make a brand new game, which is officially named Skullgirls Encore. If you already own the original Skullgirls, then you do not need to re-buy the game once Encore hits consoles. If you have the PC version of Skullgirls on Steam, then you can already play Encore. You can find other information about Encore on Lab Zero’s website, but let me talk to you about what has actually changed about the gameplay and what you can expect when the new console patch finally hits.

A new rig in the family

300RSo i finally pulled the trigger…on building a new computer rig. My decision was made due to the circumstances of my old rig finally giving out on me when I trying to upload pics from Comic-Con 2013. Lucky for me I didn’t erase the pics from both my SD Card, I had a bad habit back in the day erasing files after I loaded them into my computer. This article is to show you what type of parts I use into making this custom rig, and here we go…

Thunderscape: The World of Aden

Have you ever loved a game so much that you have wanted to be the one to own it? Well, for one lucky group of geeks, that dream just so happened to come true! When first meeting this band of gamers, I was actually surprised that they were stationed not just in one town, but in different corners of the world. From school teachers to engineers, these men are living the gamers dream.  I recently had an interview with Kyoudai Games and got to pick the minds of the writers and re-creators of a once great tabletop RPG: Thunderscape: World of Aden.

What time is it?!

CON TIME!

Con season kicked off a few weeks ago, and here at 2 Shots, most of us are preparing for one within the next few weeks (thus my absence of posts…). Pikaxcore and Blaze have Kawaii Kon coming up, then they’ll meet up with me and Khaos for MTAC (Floodcon), and I believe Redneckpoet has Wondercon coming up for him. So it’s pretty busy for us around here with setting things up in preparation. That aside, let’s discuss something very important regarding cons : Con Etiquette.

Kupokupokupooooo! (Final Fantasy XIII-2 Review)

I’m going to be honest with you guys. . . when I played Final Fantasy XIII a while back, I thought that the game was ass. Actually, I guess that’s not 100% accurate. The game had a lot of potential and very many good things to it, it’s just that, in my opinion, I don’t believe that everything ranging from the story to the side-quests to the battle system to the core mechanics that make JRPGs so wonderful were executed very well. Simply put, while the game was not exactly of abysmal quality, I think that it was a pretty bad game that could have been much much better.

That is all in the past now, and, well, Final Fantasy XIII-2 attempts to cover up for the blunder by introducing time travel, because time traveling makes everything better! Thankfully, Squeenix (Square Enix) managed to step up their game in the creation of Final Fantasy XIII-2; it’s actually a pretty damn good game that I found quite difficult to put down all throughout my first playthrough. XIII-2 is essentially what Final Fantasy XIII should have and could have been. Find out why this game did not incur my godly wrath after the jump! Continue reading
