Leave it to Google to bring the gaming world another fun way to connect. How about that NOM to that NOM NOM? Just in time for April Fools’(which I personally I HATE…until now!) you can play it now by clicking the new Pac-Man button that resides in the lower left corner of the screen. When you do so, the iconic music will commence along with your four ghosts and PAC-MAN. The environment will pixilate on whatever section of the world you’re looking at. It’s done well and perfect way to pass time getting from one nom to the other. They had much success last year with trying to catch a Pokemon feature, and this is another reason why gamers make the best kind of global consumer advertising. You can learn more about this feature HERE and read on some clues.
I did a double unboxing for my Lootcrate’s this month. I had a bit of traveling to do so I finally made time to unbox them and I had so much fun unboxing February and March’s Lootcrates!!! Thanks for watching follow the links below for some savings.
GDC 2015 Mortal Kombat X hands on preview and more…
The collaboration between NetherRealms Studios and Warner Bros is a perfect marriage between what could be a perfect formula of a great game.
During my trip to GDC I had my chance to have some quality time with Mortal Kombat X. Blood, guts, and small brain fragments hugging each pixel on the TV screen was enough to get me excited and grossed out but, it’s the beauty of what MKX is. There was an updated trailer we previewed followed by some hands-on gameplay. All I kept thinking was how delighted the MK community will feel once watching this trailer. Having a richer insight to the storyline it will captivate Mortal Kombat audiences whether you’re a fan from the beginning of the franchise existence or you’re just seeing MK for the first time. Be ready for all the blood, guts, and glory.StorylineMKX has many things to offer besides being a well-recognized franchise it has revamped its new storyline which gives insight on the relationship of the Cage family. You have Sonya Blade and her ex-husband Johnny Cage and their daughter Cassie Cage. Being a new comer to the franchise she comes from a bloodline of champions and has a kickass wielding dual pistols. Her look is spot on, I foresee many cosplays of this in the future! She carries herself as a strong, limber, brave, and a perfect addition to the game. Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade return to the series as protectors of the Earthrealm regardless of the family drama they carry forth the biggest role of their lives as a family unit. Ed Boon, did reveal Brutalities would be making a return! That being said, that just brings major feels and of course who doesn’t like BRUTALITIES?!…GIVE ME ALL THE BRUTALITIES!!!
One the best decisions I could have ever done this year was attending GDC 2015. I had attended GDC Next as teaser, but I had no idea what I was getting into or what to expect. It was more than I could have imagined. Like, most expos the amount of people was insane. It took over the whole city of San Francisco. It had notes of a giant expo but everything was calm and relaxed. Perhaps, since it was mostly developers, engineers, artists, and everything in between. I have fond memories visiting the Bay and Nor Cal, but to finally attend the conference was what I needed to get my dreams and goals in check. I do recommend if you’re considering being in the gaming industry whether internally or externally, GO! Save your money and attend this confeI do suggest to book in advance as things get really pricey especially hotels. Also, understand in order to make it in the business you have to immerse yourself completely. That may require to put your ego and “fan boy/fan girl” to the side. You have to be professional. I did see people lose their cool so many times and really turned off what could have been a major opportunity. I will be attending every year as it was all and everything I needed. Thanks to the amazing staff for being utterly professional and helpful. Till next year.

Today some of the most influential people in the gaming industry are gathering for one night to celebrate and acknowledge the efforts of some of the years best video games this year. At BlizzCon I had a chance to catch up with Geoff Keighley to discuss his ambitious attempt to create a video game show not run or funded by major corporation, but an award show produced by a gamer and tailored for the gamers who actually game. I really can’t ignore the simple fact that Keighley has a way to create memorable events, one being this years The Last of Us: One Night live. That event for me will rumble through my nerd chambers forever. With that said, The Game Awards will remind us why the game industry will always be a reason to celebrate. Not just for me but for every gamer out there who sees right through the fluff and convoluted game award shows of the past. The gaming industry needs this event for many reasons, one being we have some dark days in the last few months hindering the industry and we all need to be reminded why we’re all so lucky to be in this era of gaming.
Nerd Fashion Moment
Being that this is an award show with a red carpet I went all out, like holly hell am I glamming the shit out of myself, but I decided to get a dress outside my comfort zone. Since the weight loss I am able to wear things I most likely wouldn’t have glanced. I didn’t want to break the bank and buy a dress I would never wear again so I did something I wanted to try for some time and I rented a designer gown from renttherunway.com which was pretty painless. I was hesitant thinking how will this work if the dress doesn’t fit or doesn’t look good on me? I read all sorts of reviews and I found the most vava voom VIVA LAS FUCKING VEGAS dress I could find along with the pancake flare and elegance of course. It’s a thing of beauty. The designer I went with is Badgley Mischka who happens to be one of my favorite designers and here is the preview minus the makeup, hair, and well Las Vegas glam. Also, sweet coincidence but my father will be in Las Vegas celebrating his birthday. I will buying him a shot of tequila or two.
I will be joined by the some of the best media outlets, gaming personalities, gaming companies, and the fans who in fact matter the most. The Game Awards will be held at Planet Hollywood and will be broadcasted LIVE here. I suggest you follow me on my Twitter for up to date rants, announcements, and shenanigans. You can check out my recent podcast with Ivy Domkitty on The Game Award Show and PSX and more here. Also, the same weekend is the PlayStation Experience which will be celebrating 20 years of PlayStation. All the games, exclusives, and announcements will be discussed on the podcast next week, but if you have not caught up with the recent EP we discuss all sorts including The Game Awards, PSX, and usual rants of Ivy and I and our extremely nerdy lives.
