  1. Sniper Ghost Warrior 3: A Review

    If there’s one thing I love about video games, it is the storytelling. Almost all games that I play or have played involve it in some way or another. Whether it is the massive story arches and connectivity of the Mass Effect series, or the small side quests that lead to relatively nothing in the Elder Scrolls, I love the quest for quests. And when given this game, I can tell you, I was excited. A Far Cry style open world FPS-RPG from a sniper’s perspective, what an awesome sounding game! (CI Games) And what an awesome let down. After a 40GB install, I expected the game to load and run smoothly, yet it surprisingly took multiple minutes(close to 7 min. every time) to load. And then, it still wasn’t at full quality I expected of a 2017 release, even at Ultra settings. Disappointing, but they may fix this in future patches. (reddit) The story line of the game is lackluster as well, about an inconceivable mission gone awry when two Marine snipers(who are brothers) are sent to a mission alone(which, as a writer for a military based site-this notion bothered me), and predictably, one brother is kidnapped and made rogue by a terrorist group, from which you must rescue him. Sniping up the terrorist chain of command until you can find him. A saving grace of the game is the customization aspects and their effect on gameplay. Manufacture ammo, and customize your weapons, and see how they change the way you maneuver and where you take your shots. I noticed, with one rifle, I would take much more conservative shots, and with another I’d play a lot more aggressive. It depended on what rifle and attachments I used. (n4g.com) My final opinion of the game is that, as a FPS, this game is pretty good, the sniping mechanics of wind and distance, as well as the ability to customize and manufacture weapons, ammo, and add-ons is very enjoyable. Yet, the story and the graphics could be better. They left too much for my mind to criticize while playing the game. I would recommend this to a person who likes sniping and/or open world games, and doesn’t really care about it being a cookie-cutter story.

  3. Friday Night Drinking and Gaming

    Come join me Friday as I play through the DLC for Outlast, and try not to have a heartache
  4. Friday Night Drinking and Gaming

    Every Friday on my own channel I feature a segment called friday night drinking and gaming, where I let users decide which game I play, and what I drink. This week in honor of Arnold Palmer, I will be drinking alcoholic Arnold Palmers and playing Rory McIlroy's PGA tour. Should lead to an interesting night of throwing virtual clubs.
  5. Welcome back gamers, veterans, supporters and readers! Thanks for stopping in and reading 20 Questions here at the new Front Towards Gamer! This edition of 20 Questions will be with Glenn Banton [GB] CEO of Operation Supply Drop @OpSupplydrop 1) We all had that first video game experience that hooked us in one way or another, what was your first video game moment? [GB] While I'd played plenty of games prior, the first moment was beating Super Mario Bros on NES. I even remember the friend's house I was at in Austin, Texas and have showed my kids. It was not however a fulfilling experience. As you may know, beating the game, isn't "beating the game" it simply starts over on Hard Mode. I can remember clearly how my excitement changed to immediate frustration when this happened. I guess you can say that was the beginning of my overly critical point of view on gaming. Aside from this moment, I remember saving my money for those tiger hand held games, Bo Jackson Football/Baseball in particular. Back then earning 20$ was difficult, that could be a weekend of collecting cans for recycling at a nickel a pop. 2) If you could trade places with any other person for a month, famous or not, living or dead, with whom would it be and why? [GB] Odd question. Am I trading places because of their circumstances in which I then make the decisions or because I simply become them and then live out their life for a month? If the former, I have no ideas because my changing stupid policy in the past may harm irreversibly where we all are now. For the latter, I'd pick Teddy Roosevelt either while in Cuba for the Spanish-American war, during his safari in Africa or on his excursion to the "wild west". 3) We currently have been asking this question with some interesting responses, BF map mash up, what two maps would you "mash" together? [GB] Operation Locker with Shanghai literally combining them so that there is more playable space on the surface and 6 spots for domination. The make it 64v64. Madness ensures. 4) How often do you get a chance to play BF Hardline? What is your favorite mode so far? [GB] Not a lot. I'm having trouble wrapping my mind around the whole cops & robbers theme and it being called "Battlefield" The few times I have turned it on for multi-player I play a map then turn on BF4. I have played some of the campaign, the story is solid, the voice acting is good, the flow make sense, but even so, it's a bit of a tedious game. I just feel BF4 still has legs. I need my military theme, tanks and destruction. 5) What has been your favorite map in BF Hardline? [GB] No opinion, though any with a city theme make the most sense. 6) What game do you think changed the way we play games forever? [GB] I don't believe this is a single game, it's more certain games, even series change and the hardware itself that changes thing. The games that changed how I viewed gaming over the years were GTA (starting with the first), Fable 2, World of Warcraft and the Battlefield 3. 7) What was your first online game? and on what? (pc, ps, xbox) [GB] World of Warcraft PC. I'd never considered playing online and couldn't figure the draw, WoW changed my perspective. 8) If you were an animal what type and why? [GB] Hmmm. A wolf. Because they are awesome. On a different question about animals, I want to ride a rhinoceros, that's on my bucket list. Sadly I'll likely kick said bucket before that happens. 9) What is the weirdest item I find in your refrigerator right now? [GB] Carbonated cold-brewed Coffee is probably the weirdest. It's still there because I'm a bit uncertain of wanting to actually drink it. 10) If you could make your own Easter egg for a game, what would it be and how would it be triggered ? [GB] Some sort of weird super glitch where the gravity turns off and all the other players launch to the sky, but glitch style where they may get caught on polygons somewhere. I love a good glitch, even writing this has me chuckling. 11) What has been your favorite Easter Egg? Megladon, Phantom, Yeti, or from previous years? [GB] There is an Easter egg in Undead Labs game Lifeline that is a supply room representing Operation Supply Drop - can't get better than that. 12) What is your favorite gun to shoot sir? [GB] Any gun that is in my hand. I'm an equal opportunity trigger puller... though I'm partial to my own AR since it mine (with ACOG and suppressor)... there are many like it, but this one is mine. 13) If you could shoot any gun what gun would you pick? and why? [GB] I'd love to shoot a Mark 19 Grenade launcher or M240... why? Because guns. 14) What one thing sticks out as the biggest thing the serving in the military has taught you sir? [GB] I personally did not serve, I serve those that do or have. I can still answer that these individuals have taught me a lot about sacrifice and loyalty which I've then applied to my own life as much as possible. They serve naturally as the inspiration for everything I do with OSD. 15) What is Operation Supply Drop? [GB] OSD is the most generational relevant troops support organization in the world. We serve US and NATO troops, both active-duty and prior-service, using gaming as a catalyst to develop community. We are a 501(c)(3) as classified by the IRS. Link 16) How does it work ? [GB] We have a number of different programs that span from active-duty through prior service including supply drops, thank you deployments, vet-owned business mentor-ship, and our newest program The Teams. We strive to connect both the military community with itself as well as the civilian supporters to change the culture of how we all collectively support our troops. 17) How is this helpful to the Veterans and Military troops? [GB] There are many benefits of each of these programs depending on where a troops is in their life. These range from providing a safe distraction and fun while downrange, to empowerment to our vets wanting to start a business, to actually saving lives within the context of our program, The Teams. This is a community, first and foremost. There is no "home" for this generation, we will provide this much needed hub for those that have sacrificed so much. 18) What one super power would you want and why? [GB] Ability to clone myself. I love what I do and wish I could accomplish even more, faster. 19) What does OSD need the help with the most right now? [GB] On equal footing is both fund raising and program evangelism. We need funding to continue to support and grow our services, but we also need to continue to find the people who need this type of community. 20) How do we help out? [GB] In line with the above question, I recommend looking at the local chapters of our program, The Teams which is for active-duty, vets and civvies. On a monthly basis the members get together for what we call "Mandatory fun" which spans from picnics to paint ball to sporting events to just hanging out. 21) This last spot was saved just as thank you from myself for your service to the Military and their families! Thank you for everything you do sir! [GB] Thank YOU for the opportunity to participate. Was fantastic speaking with Glen Banton in this edition of 20 Questions. Looking forward to see what OSD brings to its troops next! What do you want to do on your bucket list? Tell us below in the comments.
  6. The Division DLC "Underground"

    The "Underground" DLC released on 6/28 for Xbox one and PC. Playstation gamers will have to wait at least a week longer. For me the underground was a test run. If massive and Ubisoft can deliver a unique, fresh, fun yet challenging experience I would get a season pass. As a gamer playing every first person shooter since before we had them. Wolfenstein created a genre in 1992, which lead to the ever classic Doom. With Half Life and Half Life 2 in the shadow of Doom, known as Doom clones the release of the Half-Life mod Counter Strike and Nintendo's Golden-Eye really put the First Person Shooter genre on the radar for millions of gamers and non gamers alike. We have come a very long way from open leaning to drop shots, texting locations, skyping, vehicles, air vehicles, fan built maps, community maps, and so on. The folks at massive and Ubisoft have been fantastic with the Division. Listening to the feedback the community offers, fixing bugs in a timely manner, battling cheaters and exploiters with ever increasing measures. All steps to ensure our enjoyment of their game is not influenced by outside measures, Bugs, cheaters, and un intended glitches. The DLC "Underground" has a few parts to it, the Underground, the game update, and Dragons Nest. First we will talk about the game update. With this update Massive/Ubisoft addressed over 50 bugs and issues while adding a plethora of new features and weapons. Some of the highlights include.. 5 New Gear Sets. New social place to fast travel to. Ability to re roll weapon talents. Added a new DarkZone for gear scores of 231+. Increased the stash size to 70. You can no longer kick players when you are in a boss fight. Sentrys Call and Strikers Battlegear Gear sets bonuses changed. They have made changes to Shotguns, SMGs, LMGs, and Assault rifles. (complete list of changes linked at bottom) The new Gear Sets AlphaBridge (Solo/Survival) Reclaimer (Support) B.L.I.N.D. (Hybrid/Darkness) DeadEYE (Sniper) FireCrest (DPS/Offensive) Secondly lets talk about "Dragons Nest" the new incursion. This incursion is longer then Falcon Lost and Clear Sky and as such will reward you with more loot. It has multiple checkpoints that may come in very handy. Fighting cleaners that pack some sneaky tricks lick RC cars with fire bombs on them. Battling against the four horsemen just to get to the end is crazy. This is far better than the previous two incursions I have played. Teamwork and coordination is something you can not survive without in this newest incursion. Be prepared for anything and lots of fires! Finally lets talk about the "Underground". With the underground Massive wanted to bring us a new content that stays fresh and is different each time you play it. They have succeeded in my eyes. When you enter the new terminal as pictured at top of article you have vendors, HVT Targets, a crafting table and matchmaking hub. There is a staircase at the back that leads you to the TOC Tactical Operations Center in the "Underground" There you can set up your operation with Random Objectives, Enemies, and Hazards. Each time you start an Operation you will face one of the four factions Rioters, Cleaners, Rikers or LMBs. The objective for each operation is randomly selected, it can range from killing a Named NPC, saving a JTF soldier, or get supplies. Sometimes it will have a timer forcing the action. Now the enemies can use a Zone Alarm that will keep allowing new enemies to spawn if activated. You can turn the alarm off by interacting with it or just shoot it to destroy it. You will also have new random hazards ranging from environmental to traps. One of my favorites is a Skill Jammer. As the name suggests it jams the use of all your skills until it is disabled. (shooting it) Here it is in action. Overall this update 1.3 "Underground" is solid all the way around. Enjoying every minute that I have played it and very impressed with the depths of the "Underground" from the looks of it to the various hazards, its fantastic. They have fixed issues in the game, improved our game play experience, and added a plethora of new stuff for us to hunt, craft and combine to build the best Agents with! Thanks for reading my take on the "Underground" DLC for the Division. Here is the complete list of changes and additions made with the 1.3 game update.
  7. Welcome back gamers, veterans, supporters and readers! Thanks for clicking on the link and reading this edition of 20 Questions here at the new Front Towards Gamer! This round of 20 Questions will be with KC SoulKidd (KC) Active Duty and top 10 BF Chopper Pilot. 1) What was your first video game? And online one? (KC) My first video game was Sonic on Sega and my online one was Gears of War. 2) What was that first experience on (first video game) like to you? (KC) It was a great experience. It was like entering a whole new world and it really got me in to video games. 3) Playing Rainbow 6 Three changed gaming forever for me, how did (first online video game) change you? (KC) It was like traveling with out the headache of trying to get there. You get a chance to create a friendship with someone you must likely wouldn't meet. 4) If you could get rid of any one of the US states, which one would you get rid of and why? (KC) None because America is the best. 5) Over the years what is the one vehicle thats your go to when its time to mob with a group online? (KC) The blackhawk on Battlefield Bad Company 2 because no matter what all of us could do every part and keep that helicopter up all game and have fun. 6)What has been your favorite video game Easter egg over the years? (KC) Grand Theft Auto ones because they put in Easter eggs that have to do with all the Grand Theft Auto before. 7) What do you think are the biggest advantages and disadvantages from social media and video games now and in the future? (KC) Advantage is that if the community is having real problem or issues with a part of game you can notify the developer's and they can fix the issue/problem. The disadvantages are having a lot of people that come from different games and come to a game like battlefield. They want it to play like or be more like the game they came from. So you well have a lot of people cry about something that really is not that bad or doesn't need to be fix. But the developer's will fix it to help out the cry baby's. 8) If you could choose one superhero power, what would it be and why? (KC) The power of invisibility. So if need be I can vanish from site or go in for the best flank. 9)What's the last book you read? (KC) The Bluford Series. 10) What's the best movie you've seen in the last year? (KC) Tie between Fury and Lone Survivor. 11) If you were a Star Trek® or Star Wars® character, which one would it be? and why? (KC) Mace Windu because he's the only good brother on the team. 12) What is the weirdest item I find in your refrigerator right now? (KC) Breakfast Lunchables 13) If you could trade places with any other person for a week, famous or not, living or dead, real or fictional, with whom would it be? (KC) Ashton Kutcher just so I can be with Mila Kunis 14) Why do you choose to fly over close quarter combat? (KC) I like to fly because it's a whole different style of playing and not many people can master or even use the helicopters. So It puts you in a special type of category 15) What was your favorite gun to shoot? and why? For me it was a Mosin Nogant. (KC) M416 because it's reliable and its been with me since Battlefield Bad Company 16) As a top 10 pilot what is the most challenging part of playing BF4? (KC) Having to deal with SO MANY STRINGERS/IGLA. 17) What three things do I hate the most about BF4 as a pilot? (only use one spot for lock ons) (KC) 1. To many Stringers/Iglas 2. The invisible walls they use to have. 3. Pilots that don't PTFO. Like the pilots that constantly try to spawn trap 18) Hate to inform you there is body armor/flak jacket in Hardline but as a gadget, is this an improvement or should or be taking out? (KC) Even though I haven't play the finished product I can see it being very beneficial to the player's. From taking a few extra rounds as a(n) infantry soldier or vehicle user. 19) As a top 200 chopper pilot I agree that its either best of friends or worst of enemies, with the ability to add a stinger armory and be a sniper does this make snipers over powered? (Kc) No 20) What are your thoughts on BF Hardline? (KC) It's definitely a different type of game from all the other. But it's definitely made with the key element that battlefield is know for and that's using a lot of team work. But a negative part of Hardline (in my opinion) is that it's made mainly for Call of duty player's to get them into the Battlefield series. Big Thanks to KC Soulkidd for doing this 20Q and thank you for stopping by and checking out another 20Questions here at FrontTowardGamer. What has been your favorite Easter egg in video games?
