#gamergirl | Games I’m Stoked To Play (E3 Trailers)

I’ve been gaming ever since I was little, and amongst all my buddies and my boyfriend, I’m recognized as an awesome #gamergirl. :) I friggin love video games!  And every year I look forward to seeing what new tech and games are unveiled at E3.

Right now, I’m still playing PS3 and Call of Duty in my spare time, but in the next week or two, I’m going to upgrade to the next gen: I’m buying an Xbox One.

I’ll eventually get a PS4, but right now I’ve got my eyesight on the Xbox One. Why? Well, because there are several exclusives that I’m looking forward to, especially Sunset Overdrive.

I could go on and on about the games I’m stoked to play, but the only way to truly experience the excitement is to actually watch the trailers from E3. So, without further adieu, I give you awesomeness:

Far Cry 4

Sunset Overdrive

Mass Effect 4

Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare

Ori & The Blind Forest

Rainbow Six Siege

Assassin’s Creed Unity

Mortal Kombat X

Halo: The Master Chief Collection

Forza Horizon 2

The Witcher 3

The Sims 4: Create The Sim Of Your Dreams (Video)

There are a lot of upcoming games I’m looking forward to. From Watchdogs to more details on the forthcoming Far Cry 4 to the next Mass Effect title, I’ve got my eye on a few titles, as well as upgrading to a gaming laptop and finally getting either a PS4 or Xbox One.

But one of my #nerdlife obsessions is without a question of doubt, The Sims. I’ve been simming it up since the first base game, as well as the expansion packs. With every generation of Sims, I’ve found myself loving the endless possibilities to create a variety of sims, but one thing that has always seemed as though it hadn’t reach full potential was the CAS (Create-A-Sim.)

Even with mods and skins I was able to tweak my sims, but they never felt totally adjustable. When it came to even creating my own sim, it was difficult because I wanted my sim to look like me: medium waist, big butt, thick legs, and 6feet of coolness. :) But, it seems very soon I might be able to finally create a sim that looks like me.

Say hello to The Sims 4 and the brand new Create-A-Sim.

The-Sims-4-SS10

The new Sims game is supposed to hopefully come out this Summer/Fall, and the new CAS is way more powerful than it’s predecessors.

Unlike the few sliders in Sims 3, now you can select on any region you want and just push/pull to shape it the way you want. This allows for ultimate customization, resulting in sims that look more realistic in terms of body shapes, faces, and diversity.

When it comes to creating my Sims, I easily spent an hour last night creating my boyfriend, me, and the dog we hope to have one day. But now with the Sims 4, I could totally see us taking like 3 hours to create our family!

And if the CAS allows for this high-level of customization, I’m sure the Live Mode is going to have some great new features as well.  One thing we keep hearing about it having to “control your sims emotions” and not just their well-being (bathroom, hunger, sleep, etc.) So hopefully( very soon) we can get some more insights on what to expect!

Check out the new gameplay trailer below:

Awesomesauce | Grand Theft Auto V Mythbusters: Episode 1 [VIDEO]

Trevor-GTAV-OnQuadBike

First off,  I must declare that Grand Theft Auto V is one of the best games ever! Okay, GTA:San Andreas is still the best, but GTA V comes pretty darn close! I’m obsessed with it and you should be too!

I’m especially stoked for the online play to go live. Man, I can’t wait! If you’re #TeamPS3 then you should add me and we should crew up. My PSN: funk25

Okay, so now that I got those important notes out the way, let’s get down to business. Defend The House, a channel on YouTube, decided to play mythbusters Grand Theft Auto style. Basically, we all know how crazy the game is and the madness of the open-world allows you to do almost anything and everything…but can you really do everything?

Some of the myths:

You can’t knife a shark.

You can tow police cars while they are pursuing you.

You can hide from cops in the bushes.

You can ignite a gas trail with the backfire of a car.

These are just a few of the myths, and in this video below, Defend The House confirms (and busts) the myths and shows us just how crazy GTA really is!

Pure Comedy | Madden 25: Running Back Sons [Commercial]

maxresdefault

As a gamer, I’ve tried my hands at a little bit of everything. RPG, racing games, FPS (my favorite,) hack-n-slash, basketball, and yes, even Madden. Now I’m the first to admit that I’m horrible at Madden, but I’ll still give it my best shot. Now, I can give you a run for your money in Call of Duty, but if it’s Madden, I’m guaranteed to lose. And to many folks (guys) surprise, I actually enjoy watching football.

With the start of NFL season and release of Madden 25 right around the corner, the advertising madness has begun. And what better way to create frenzy around a game than shooting a hilarious commercial.

Just in case you’ve missed the pure comedy, then you really ought to check out this super-funny new commercial for the upcoming game, Madden 25. It’s feeds into that competitive spirit of Madden that you either love or hate.  Total beast mode.

Awesomesauce | Behold ‘The Sims 4′ Trailer x Gameplay Video

We’ve waited, we’ve anticipated the “what ifs,” and now we’ve finally got a tease of what to expect in the next generation of The Sims. 

That’s right, my fellow simmers I’d like to introduce you to The Sims 4 and all the simming glory to behold sometime in 2014.  With a brand new arrival trailer and some exclusive gameplay, we’ve got an up close look at the new CAS (Create-a-Sim,) new interactions, new building options, and so much more!

No longer will you have to download Mods to change the breast and booty size of your sims; click anywhere on your sim to make cosmetic adjustments. That new feature (which we get a taste of in the gameplay video) is ingenious! No longer do all your sims have the same body type, with generic adjustments of skinny, average, and fat.

Aside from the new updates to the CAS, your sims now have new emotions that are more life-like. Sims can get jealous easily when another sim in the vicinity is flirting up their chick. The emotions and response to the happenings around your sims are a vast improvement from the previous games. See for yourself in the gameplay trailer below.

So, what do you think? Will you plan on upgrading and getting The Sims 4 for your PC/MAC? Share your thoughts below!

Super Hyped | ‘Watch Dogs’ World Premiere Gameplay Trailer [North America]

Watch-DogsWAllAnyone who watches Scandal on ABC Thursdays most have seen (or hopefully watches) Person of Interest. One of my favorite shows on ABC, Person of Interest takes the entire concept of society being monitored to new heights, and the upcoming video game Watch Dogs has the similar concept. But of course, being that its not related to the show, the entire premise and character motivation is something of it’s own creation.

Watch Dogs takes the characters into an open-world and the role of Aiden Pearce. You could relate him to Reese from Person of Interest and the extremities he goes to help people, but it seems that Mr. Pearce has a more vengeful motivation; making for great gameplay!

From hacking into people’s phones to steal bank information and causing the traffic lights to malfunction, Mr. Pearce does anything and everything he can to accomplish his missions. And with every piece of technology in the city at his control (he’s a brilliant hacker,) there is truly no stopping him. Thus, the open-world concept is perfect for hours of wreaking havoc.

You’ll have to watch till November 19, 2013 to get your hands on this title, but the new gameplay trailer “Out of Control” surely does have me super hyped. From the graphics of the environment to the character detail and motions, I’m stoked to play Watch Dogs and experience it’s awesomeness in it’s entirety.

Watch the new trailer below. Hyped? You should be. :)
