A bit of awesome news came by yesterday and finally, it is about Monster Hunter World’s release date. Check out the trailer I’ve attached below from TGS 2017.
We are finally getting a larger emphasis on story in this entry. That’s a good thing. Maybe they learned a thing or two from Destiny 2, which has a good amount of content without having each of them be mandatory of each other.
What do we think?

September is here and we just got through Destiny 2 and working through Monster Hunter Stories, but guess what? October is coming and with it, more games! Oh no! My backlog!
Here’s our launch lineup and our picks for the month. 😀

**Please read below for an update to this after months of pondering this issue**
During the Christmas season (and our wedding dowries), I got a PS4 PRO somewhere around there and had a blast with higher resolution outputs and solid frame rates. It has been an amazing ride. If I have games on PC I prefer to sit comfortably and re-play, I get it on PS4 now (until the Scorpio rears its head; I’ll be playing Mass Effect Andromeda, Fallout 4, Witcher 3 and Skyrim on that baby all day for uniformity’s sake). It’s all nice and dandy…
Until Firmware 4.50, codenamed Sasuke, came out and made SO MANY things better. I know that’s bad grammar pointing to a false point, but behind all that good, it brought an unexpected cursed mark along with it (apologies for the Naruto pun).
Disruptive flickering (comes in green, white, or limited edition blue versions) and the occasional static flicker that brings the PS4 to complete uselessness.
The fix? Nothing definitive, but here’s what I’ve done so far thanks to numerous tips all over the net…

–Or get it now on console!! PC won’t get it until 10/24/2017… T. T
If I were to give you one word to describe my experience with Destiny 2, it would be “fulfilling“.
<vlog coming soon!>
It took me a little under a week to complete the campaign and master all Hunter subclasses, even if I restarted a character part-way. Oddly enough, the character I brought back from Destiny 1 made me feel like the intro to the game didn’t fit the Exo race due to the whole intro, but after some thought I decided to kick it with my Exo Hunter like the good ol’ days anyway. 😀
Words of wisdom to those who’ve yet to pick up for PC (or console):
**Pre-order the game for cool freebies! The game is worth it anyway!
- ALL DLC, except the Emotes and Emblems, will be unlocked AT THE END of the campaign, even pre-order Coldheart and Kill-Tracker Ghost shell. (All emotes and emblems are in your hub vault ASAP). They are also obtainable in-game at one point.
- If you have money to get the Expansions out of the way, BUY the DIGITAL DELUXE. (Note that Digital Deluxe is the $100 pack, the $90 pack is Expansion Pass only). DO NOT base it off the emote, emblem and sword, it wasn’t worth it. (You get them all in-game and the sword was post-campaign along with a cooler sword).
- If you are looking to save money or can wait to buy the Expansion Pass, DO NOT BUY the fancy editions and just stick to the Standard edition of the game.
You have been warned. I would have rather spent the extra $40 on silver for bright engrams when I hit Level 20. I would’ve gotten cooler stuff.

Guardians! It seems some of us are queued to play in Destiny 2.
10 minutes into launch… Got in at the 25(ish) minute mark.
I don’t know if Bungie still has yet to open their servers or they totally underestimated their player base…
Server crash, perhaps?
Anyone playing yet? XBO or PS4?
Hey all! I’m a little backed up these past couple weeks and I’m working on an FSU recap for you all tonight and a Looking Ahead episode for next week, but for now, I came across this video from CD Projekt Red as they depart from The Witcher franchise and celebrate its 10 years of monster slaying.
Geralt and family will be missed. It has been a great 10 years of lore, joy, fun, love and sorrow.

September marks off the start of this year’s overbooked month of games. This month we will be seeing AAA titles from a decent roster of devs ranging from sports, fighting, FPS, RPG, racing, indie and retro re-releases. This month is totally a cup(head)ful!

Not much else to say since the title says it all! The $100 pip-boy edition is also available. 🙂 September 26 is coming fast! Check out the Bethesda store for their listings! Here’s their full article on the release!
Chime in where it counts and stay tuned to our V-log and coverage of Fallout 4 when the GOTY comes in. We’ve been waiting for this release before we launched our thoughts on the game from 2015. We thought it was a good update to the franchise, but lacked some depth in many other aspects.
