There is no video of me. There is only video of the new Halo. Behold.
This is not what I was expecting at all. Just a few minutes of actual gameplay and what they showed was not good at all. I don’t want to bitch, I definitely don’t want to bitch, but there was nothing, nothing in that trailer that had me in awe. No cool explosions like the Ratchet and Clank, no innovative new matchmaking or battle royal/big team battle gameplay mode. Just 117 shooting some grunts, elites, and brutes. Zzzzzzzzzzzzz.Read full story...

It really doesn't matter that no more than a cut scene was shown at E3, I'm in!
Unfortunately, no new gameplay here. And I’m afraid we have some bad news. Now it’s possible some version of Halo Infinite will be on Xbox One, but Microsoft needs to sell that new console. This is definitely an Xbox Scarlett game and I’m not sure if we will get to see any Halo Infinite actual gameplay until next E3. Until then, here’s a little teaser.
Halo will always have a special place in my heart. Here’s to a great game and an old feeling! Let’s Go!!!
Halo Infinite is currently expected to be released Holiday season 2020.
Where Did Ninja Go?
The last year has been a roller coaster of ups and downs for gamers watching the phenomenon of Ninja (Tyler Blevins). From small time streamer, to top Twitch personality in a record amount of time. As a Mom who runs many businesses, I watched things from a professional and personal stance transpire that made me shake my head with disbelief.
I watched this charismatic kid with a great outlook on life turn his love of gaming into an empire of money. His ability to learn any new game was something that all of us as gamers (myself included) would love to achieve. The release of Fortnite was his stepping stone to internet notoriety. He adapted to the game so quickly that he could not be beaten. His interaction with the chat with the boy next door attitude made him rise to the top of the Twitch almost over night.Read full story...
Clips! Halo 5 PAWNAGE!
Check out some of my highlights that capped the euphoric high that was the Halo 5 beta release. Enjoy!
How does 343 fail miserably when designing the matchmaking system for Halo: MCC crafted specifically for next-gen hardware when Bungie created a legitimate source for matching players' games 10+ years ago on limited legacy consoles? Such a disappointment!
Initially, I was excited to get my hands on Halo: MCC, but after experiencing the agonizing torture of trying to get into a game, I was overwhelmingly frustrated. I shouldn't have to wait 20+ minutes to play on a map for 5. Even when in an even number party, it was difficult to join any game. I fell in love with the idea of playing all the old content such as Halo: CE/2 etc., but if this is what I have to go through, Ill pass. Campaign and the pre-designed playlist mix are ok i guess, if thats what your into. However, the real meat of this game, everyone knows, is the multiplayer and 343 let a lot of players down in this aspect. As far as I can tell, the recent update didnt really do much. Players are still having difficulty joining games when in a party and matchmaking is inconsistent at best. I only hope they turn it around because I am a real fan of the franchise, I enjoy playing when im playing, and shootin' nuabs in the face. Comment if you feel my pain!

More new maps on the way in March...
A new video preview of the Defiant Map Pack has surfaced. It looks great. Check out the end, no mention of Bungie, it says 343 Industries and Microsoft Game Studios now. Welcome to the future of Halo.
Halo: Reach Defiant Multiplayer Map Pack
This is a short story of why I should win the Marvel VS Capcom 3 Ultra Combo Giveaway. Well I think its short enjoy! ^_^
First of all, if you have not read my first story I suggest you click on the link below.
In my first story I told you guys I have a lot of reasons why I love fighters. Well only a clip and a few words can only do so much to tell this community how much I really feel about fighting games. So let me explain more of why I love fighters. Like most gamers out there I started gaming when I was about four years old. I really didn’t care for it at the time because all I had on my mind was a dream of becoming a Power ranger. And like all other four year olds, I played with lots of toys of course. I had friends but most of them lived to far, so staying at home was a no brainer for me. Now I do not remember how my older brother got his hands on a Sega Genesis so I’m just going to say it magically appeared to give this story some spice. The game I started off with on the Sega was Sonic the Hedgehog. Sonic really made me happy for how no one else in my family was able to get so far on the game. And by my brother being eight years older than me it felt that much sweeter. I could never beat the dang video game, which leads me to forget about game. Until one day my brother bought the most amazing, electrifying game, Street Fighter II. When I first saw Street Fighter II I was blown away by the graphics, sound, & music. But with all of that said, that’s not what attracted me to the game. What really caught my attention was that versus screen. The fact that someone instead of the computer was playing against me just gave me goose bumps that were thick and solid as a basketball. I was in my sanctuary playing SF2 on the Sega Genesis with a smile so big the Joker would be jealous. I remember crying because M. Bison was beating me every time I’d reach the last stage. But one day I managed to beat him and during that whole year I never stopped smiling. A few years past by and If I remember correctly the Playstation system released. I got the Playstation the same year of its release with demos and all. Now I was into other games like Crash Bandicoot and more demos because for some odd reason fighting games like to take a few years off. Whatever the case that didn’t keep me from running into one of the greatest collaborations of all time. My mother works in the school system, so she had a really good relationship with the principle who owned the school. One night we were invited to the principle house or should I say mansion. And as the lady showed us around her lovely house she thought I felt bored. So she told me to go on the other side of the house and walk up stairs and I’ll be pleased to what her son was doing. When I finally got to the room I saw the game that almost made my head explode, Marvel VS Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes. When I saw Wolverine fighting Ryu I was literally screaming out loud “Hey that’s Ryu from Street Fighter, that’s Wolverine from X-Men!” Everyone who were sitting down playing the game didn’t even get mad because they were just as hype as me. With the battle system moving so fast, I was blown away once again by gameplay. I wanted to spend the night but my mother had other plans. Seeing MvC for the first time reminded me how great fighting games are again. I started buying every fighting game I could get my hands on and also played at the local restaurants that had arcade cabinets. More years past as my love for fighters grew with games like Mvc2, Guilty Gear series, Capcom vs SNK series, Street Fighter Alpha series, and Bloody Roar series. Now remember these are fighting games so once again the hiatus for the genre hit big time which lasted for almost a decade. The Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii were the new babies. Games like Call of Duty and Halo was all we heard. Soul Caliber released and at the time felt really fresh, but it still didn’t feel that void. I hear some fighting game fans called it the dark ages and the feeling was just that “dark”.
Street Fighter IV released and it put a smile back on my face bringing back the technicality of fighters to the so called dead genre. Other game companies started to catch on to the revival of fighting games like Blazeblue and Tekken 6. Even upgraded versions of the heavy popular SFIV A.K.A vanilla noticed the trend it set and decided to make Super Street Fighter 4. The funny thing about all this was the fact that my friends doubted me on how well fighting games would do on the next gen consoles. Now most of my friends play fighters more than any other video game genre. In the middle of all this and after a decade of demand Capcom announces Marvel VS Capcom 3 Fate of Two Worlds. I was so excited for this game simply because I already knew one of my favorite Capcom character was going to make it on there. Dante was all I wanted when it came to this sequel. Heck, Capcom could have said Marvel VS Devil May Cry and that would have sold me there. With the internet blowing up with pictures and videos it was only a matter of time before I get my hands on the game. I never knew I it would be as soon as October, 28 2010. I was lucky enough to live in one of the cities where Capcom would be hosting Fight Club. Fight Club is basically a get together like a night club but with a preview of a video game they’re promoting. I was dead set on going to that event no matter what. I’m currently in college and I had a test early that same day. I made sure I studied up and was ready to go that same day right after class. I met up with my friends and we drove straight downtown to the Atlanta metro area. When we got there we couldn’t find the location or at least the spot where it was being hosted because a train was oddly blocking the parking space. We quickly found a parking space and climbed over the train to find our place in line for the event. To be honest, I felt like a rebel climbing over the train which made the hype meter for this event rise. When we finally got into the event I couldn’t believe my eyes. I was thinking here I am a guy who grew up playing this game and now I’m at a night event that’s promoting it, Godlike! I didn’t just play the game at the event ether I also made the most of my night there using my other talent dancing. I also took some pictures as proof of this Fight Club event. My love for fighters after that night just blew the top off. I’m so happy to see how much fighters have evolved yet stay true to the fans that’s been with them from day one. I hope I win this contest to show other people who are not into fighting games show how strong this community is. Heck, I hope this inspires people who are not into video games at all. The gaming community is growing very fast and I believe the whole world should witness this.
In this video you might catch me dancing at the Capcom Fight Club I attended in Atlanta, Georgia.
In this picture its me next to the lovely cosplayer Yaya Han.

HaloCharts has come up with a way to tell you where your weaknesses are... or have they?
First let me say that I've been a member of HaloCharts for a little while now and love the extra stats that they give you for certain things in all of the Halos. An example would be that they tell you what you would be ranked in Halo Reach if they'd kept the original ranking system. Hell, I've even played their texted based Halo game, HaloSphere.
I was very disappointed with this feature from HaloCharts. First off, Bungie posted on their site in the news section that HaloCharts had released this, and HaloCharts was in no way prepared to handle this...result = epic failure. Halo Charts was down all day yesterday. If you went to their site it said, HaloCharts is very busy right now. The second reason is that the analyzing that they do is just against their community and doesn't help you in any way. They are only telling you how much better or worse you are then the population average on their site, for example in Competitive - Games Won.
To sum this thing up, definately check out HaloCharts sometime, but don't do it just for the analyzer.
Just a heads up for you Jimmys out there thinking that someone is cheating because you're getting pwned so much, you actually may be right.
While doing some reading in forums, I've came across an interesting glitch. It seems that the old BXB and BXR from Halo 2 is back. Whether or not Bungie thinks it's cheating is still unknown. Just do a simple search to read more about this.
Apparently there are a lot of conditions that have to be met to perform this. First you have to be the host of the game and secondly you have to have a pistol equipped. From what I've read it seems to be a little inconsistent. Hopefully, since only one person can do it a game because of host, you won't run into someone using this exploit.
