Xbox Live on Nintendo Switch!?

Have you ever wanted the best of both worlds all in one? In a way I’ve always wanted to see one of the big companies come together and do something for the greater good of gaming. So are we on the verge of that? Microsoft and Nintendo working together? What if it’s to team up and topple Sony? All speculation for now.

You can see the headline here Xbox Live coming to Nintendo Switch and other devices what does this mean? Well all we can say right now is that it means Xbox Live will be more accessible across other platforms. More exposure the better? Look I know we all are thinking there is something more deep in this, I agree to an extent. It looks like right now that this could be a move to help move the movement of cross-play between systems. I honestly think cross-play is super important, There is no reason to punish a consumer based on what console they purchase and play on.

So you wanna speculate now? Nintendo and Microsoft are teaming up, Nintendo will let Microsoft work on some of their games and they will release both on Switch and Xbox One. You will be able to play some Xbox One (older games from game pass) on the go with your Nintendo Switch.

How about some extreme speculation? Microsoft will buy Nintendo properties and start working with Nintendo to make the next ultimate gaming console that will expand to the PC race of gaming. Nintendo will be teaming up with Microsoft to make more games exclusive to the Xbox One.

Now come on both of those accounts of speculation would be awesome wouldn’t they? Who wouldn’t want a collaboration between 2 of the greatest gaming companies around. Though lets not get ahead of ourselves but damn that would be great. In general I do wish the companies sometimes would just come together and work together in creating some real great content together. They can still compete with each other in a business aspect, Though sometimes it would be cool to let loose and do something real cool.

What does this mean for you? Right now nothing really. If you don’t own either a Switch or any Xbox live services then there isn’t really anything for you. Now then if your an owner of both? You may feel a bit wondering “is this for real?” In some ways I was and still am too myself. My prediction will be that you will be able to do some stuff with Xbox Live on your Nintendo Switch, Then you will be able to play some Xbox game pass games (the older ones) on your Nintendo Switch which then you can take on the go. If that’s the case then you can see an increase of sales on Xbox game pass and I think that would be a very smart and great move on Microsoft’s part.

Jeff’s Thoughts on Gaming #5

Back at it again with some thoughts on gaming!

Will Kingdom Hearts 3 live up to the hype?

Great question eh? Kingdom Hearts 1 released in 2002. 3 years after 2005 Kingdom Hearts 2 releases and is a masterpiece also. We waited a real long time for a third installment in the series and we are inching much more closer now. Due to the years apart between releases I do think it will now capture a different type of players to it. Nothing against them now I honestly hope they enjoy the game, I do feel that their voices will be the more bigger influence now though than the older gamer who played the game way back in 2002/2005. So we shall see!

EA has failed at Star Wars games

2013-2019 Has brought us only 2 Star Wars games, Both Battlefront games and both seriously lacking in all areas of the game. Even their online portion was very dry. EA has canceled the open world Star Wars game. It’s severely disappointing to us fans who’ve waited so long and in return we have gotten very little back. How much trust now do you put into EA? Sometimes a picture just does it more justice. img_2798 Ouch…I remember being real excited when EA was doing the next Battlefront, I even had it pre-ordered. When I got the second one and I think it was more empty and dry, There just are no words for the huge let down.

Crowdfunded video games seen a decline in 2018

I’d figure at some time or another this was bound to happen. How many times have you seen a game get the funding from the consumer and then just have it come out with broken and empty promises? We seen it happen all too much. It’s just unfortunate because then the ones out there that are holding true to their word won’t get the support that they deserve. Personally for me I can’t do it as unfortunately I have been on the wrong end of it too many times. Tabletop games seemed to be what took over on the kickstarter.

Thinking gaming 2020

Yes, the year 2020 is coming up. A new decade. This may be early to talk about but right now I think we should be enjoying the last of what this decade has to offer. Then you have to think how has this decade been gaming wise? 4K was on the rise, Games like GTA, Skyrim, PUBG, Breath of The Wild, Mario Odyssey, Kingdom Hearts 3, etc there is beyond so many games to even mention. I also think too has it changed video gaming for the better? That is the question we shall find out closer to the end of this decade.

Video Gaming Funk

You ever just sit there playing a game and then lose interest? Not because the game is bad or boring but because of reasons unknown. Crawls in you just don’t know what to do or how to feel. That sounds like video gaming funk! I’m sure we all been through it.

So what is video gaming funk? Depends on how you look at it I guess. Some attribute it to playing a game and not progressing how they would like to progress. Others may think that it’s they can’t decide what video game to play. Oh so many games but what to choose? Another funk and the one that I mainly associate with is interest in playing a game. Again this is not because the game is boring or bad, Just comes out of nowhere? Can you try and put it into words? I’m not sure.

My thinking of this article came when I was playing a game myself. NHL 18 in fact. I have some created teams and players and I just mess around it’s quite fun really. I was in the middle of playing and then all of a sudden I was like “Meh….I don’t really feel it now” Is it because of the game I was playing? Well then I couldn’t muster up anything else to play either. I set the controller down turned off the system and just sat there. I wasn’t upset or anything I was just relaxing I guess.

I’ve had a few times in a game where I was trying to figure out a puzzle, What to do next in the game and then something comes over me like a funk. Can’t figure it out done with the game maybe almost to never be heard of again. Months later you wonder hmm that game I was stuck in maybe I can try and again and push through. That moment you do it and break the funk! It’s an amazing feeling. You can now progress on the game as you were!

How do you guys choose that game to play? Looks fun? Story looks good? Game play seems pretty good? Then what if your having that time “Well I want to play something but what….I’ve played this…I’ve played that…Eh not really in the mood for this or that…Oh what to play” This one no matter how I look at it every which way, Even I can’t figure it out. I think it’s just a natural thing that happens, Something in you is just saying your gamed out for now come back later.

Today’s quick article just focuses on some gaming funk. What about you? Whats your funk and how do you break it?
