So yesterday, I and Twitch Streamer Jate Nott of Nott in My House played a long haul of the new video game, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. To all of those who stopped in to give us a watch, thank you very much and please support Mr. Nott in his future streams. He is a good friend of mine and an entertaining streamer. In preparation for the game, I decided to do some research… And by research, I mean look at Wikipedia. From what I have seen, this game has been turning heads left and right. Not to mention, receiving copious amounts of perfect scores by many critics. Due to the fact that a lot of critics are bought off by big corporations, I did reserve a little bit of judgment when I saw this. But, like all things, I sifted through the bullshit to find out what people were really saying, and that is that this game is very good.
So after giving it a play, I have to say… Yes… This game is very good. It is most certainly a strong game and a beautiful one at that. Unlike games like Watch Dogs, Destiny, The Order 1886, and so forth that have largely disappointed the consuming masses, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt finds itself at the good games table… A surprisingly bare table when it comes to Next Gen Triple A titles. Along with Shadows of Mordor and Dragon Age: Inquisition, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is truly a game that shines. It is certainly a game that will be in contention for Best Game of 2015… But does it deserve the massive praise that it is receiving? Well let’s take a look.

We can talk about the awesome perks of having a wonderful girlfriend who owns a Xbox One later, but one of the bigger ones that is pertinent today is if you run a review site like me that reviews video games, then you get to see some of these games without going through the hassle of buying a next gen console. But either way, on to the subject of today. One of said girlfriend’s favorite game series is Dragon Age, a game that I never really got into. The reason for this is the same reason I didn’t get really into Mass Effect when it first came out… I just didn’t feel like picking it up. One of those things that is always in the back of your mind, that game that you REALLY want to play but just find other things to occupy your time on your way to the grave and by the time you do play it, it is way past the point of relevancy.
But since she was a big fan of it, I decided to get the crash course from her personally which all lead to Dragon Age Inquisition. After hearing about it I had to say, where has this game been all my life?! I love me some good action fantasy stories and Dragon Age for me as me hooked just the same way Elder Scrolls has hooked me in the past. Out of all the next gen games I have had the chance to either see or play first hand, I have to say that FINALLY we have a game that looks and feels like it needs to be played with the next generation of consoles. Unlike Watch Dogs, Dead Rising 3, Far Cry 4, Killzone Shadowfall, Sunset Overdrive, and countless others that fall into the category of massive pants shitting disappointment, Dragon Age Inquisition is the first game I have seen that has delivered genuine enjoyment.

Not a particularly fun NTOE episode for me… But for your viewing pleasure, mine and Brandon’s two cents on the latest console generation.

So I think I made it clear about my feelings for the ‘XBone’ and one of its most ‘popular’ new releases Dead Rising 3. Even if my opinions are not very… popular should we say on this matter. I stick by it 100%. I absolutely detest that game and if you find it enjoyable, then I am not going to take that from you. But we certainly have different tastes when it comes to zombie games and I will leave it at that. So with that being said, let’s talk about the other end of the spectrum… How is the PS4 fairing?
I have made it clear in the past that I am a little biased when it comes to a contest between these two consoles. I owned the original PS1 when I was a kid, I owned a PS2, PS3, and was planning on purchasing a PS4 and I have never owned an XBox or any of its successors nor ever plan to. So I suppose that when I get a chance to play both the XBox One and the PS4, I might be a little more… ‘friendly’ to the PS4… Well this kind of the case, but not by much. While it is true that I did enjoy my experience with the PS4 and the new title Killzone Shadow Fall more than I did the XBox One and Dead Rising 3, that does not mean that this wasn’t a wonderful experience for me. Killzone Shadow Fall may have been a technically better game, but the feeling that it will leave you is a very strong feeling of… meh, who gives a shit?

Really?… Really?! This is the best that you got? The next generation of consoles comes out, you are in a recession riddled market, and the next wave is released. The XBone (Intentional) has already failed on a massive level before it even hit shelves and the PS4 while doing better is not in good shape… You have a chance to hit the ground running and shell out some amazing games to get the ball rolling and get people interested in console gaming again… And you fucked it up! Playstation 4 and Xbox One have dug their own graves, climbed in their coffins, and are just waiting to be buried at this point. When you release a new console, you need flagship games! You need to get people interested in your product, to buy it! You need to give them incentive! Instead you release a couple of mediocre, bullshit titles, and just wait for people to be gullible enough to buy your product. Sony and Microsoft you are FAILURES ON EVERY CONCEIVABLE LEVEL!
