  1. FALL IS UPON US

    About what I spoke about last month with esports maybe being in the Olympics, the IOC decided that ESPORTS ARE TOO VIOLENT FOR THE OLYMPICS. Evan though many of the Olympic events had the origins in violence, in today's time we don't kill each other for a medal. What I believe should happen is there be a separate Olympics just for esports. Think about it, let's take all the esports games, from Super Mario Cart to CS:GO to Streetfighter, and gather the best players of from each countries teams and have a week of events. If a League of Legends championship can sell out a stadium in hours I don't think they will have any trouble selling tickets to these events either. Gaming News The biggest news right now is Diablo. DIABLO COMING TO NINTENDO SWITCH, a possible DIALBO ANIMATED SERIES COMING TO NETFLIX, and SEASON 15: BOON OF THE HORADRIM started on September 21. I predict we will also hear about more Diablo news at Blizzcon. BATTLEFIELD 5 had their open beta the first week of September and a few of our members got to play. Talking to them they seem to enjoy it. It had some quirks, but that could have been just the beta, but it looks to be a good game. EA shared some news on WHAT THEY LEARNED FROM BATTLEFIELD 5 OPEN BETA. I hope I will be able to join others when its released on November 20th. I don't know if you heard but TELLTALE GAMES WILL BE CLOSING ITS DOORS. The makers of some great adventure games such as The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us are ending. They sure will be missed. Entertainment News It looks like DISNEY IS PLANNING TO SLOWDOWN THEIR STAR WARS OUTPUT. Guess they and others feel like they might have over-saturated the movies with Star Wars and Solo was not as big a success as they hoped, after episode 9 you may only see a Star Wars movies every 2 or more years instead of once a year. Fall TV is starting up now, HERE IS A LIST OF THE BROADCAST PREMIERS if you're interested. Personally I am interested in DOCTOR WHO STARTING ON OCTOBER 7TH with a brand new doctor. I followed Doctor Who since Tom Baker and I hope this new doctor, played by JODIE WHITTAKER, reignites a whole new generations of WHOVIANS.
  2. BACK TO SCHOOL

    BACK TO SCHOOL Hope everyone enjoyed their summer. Its back to school season and most schools have started or will start soon. I know your all aware, ESPORTS have really exploded across the world and become more and more main stream. There are even talks of ESPORTS IN THE OLYMPICS in 2024. This goes down even to the local level, here where I am in Arizona, HIGH SCHOOLS WILL OFFER ESPORTS, and include a state championship. Imagine telling your kids "Yea I lettered in sports and won a state championship in high school, playing video games." Gaming News BATTLE OF AZEROTH started on August 14th for all WoW players. It even broke its own 1 day record of selling 3.4 MILLION COPIES. Wonder what will happen If Blizzard decides to make another MMO. I thought of a possibility were Blizzard creates a new MMO where WoW merges with it so you have 3 factions, WoW, Starcraft, Diablo. Wouldn't that be insane. There is a new game coming out next year, from the creators of THE WITCHER 3, you know what I am talking about CYBERPUNK 2077. The game has only released some wallpapers, concept art, screenshots, and a nice trailer. People say in the screenshots you can kinds of see what the combat will be like. Either way it should be one incredible game. I read a great article about BATTLEFIELD 5 a couple of days ago which was someone who got to play the demo some and I got excited about. Maybe this will be the game to bring WMD back together again for some good old PUBSTOMPING. Entertainment News August tends to be a time to push that last popcorn movie out such at MEG and MILE 22, and flood cable and internet ads with a bunch of trailers for the upcoming fall TV season. One surprising hit was CRAZY RICH ASIANS. Twitter and other sites seem to really love this movie. I haven't seen it yet, but actually plan too. Finally for the most demented movie to come out in a long time THE HAPPYTIME MURDERS. For those who think TED was an edgy plush bear, think again after you watch this movie. It's not going to win any Oscars, it will probably win RAZZIES, just watch THE HAPPYTIME MURDERS trailer and find out for yourself.
  3. Summer Gaming

    Summer is a time when everyone is out doing their own thing. They may be on vacation, sunbathing, hiking, working, just doing whatever, until school starts. Many of us here have full time jobs so working is big and not much a summer vacation. But all in all hope you got in some good game playing time. Summer can be a great stress reliever, well at least for me anyway, gaming takes you to a place where I can blow apart that monster and feel good about it. I love coming home from a long day and just playing a few rounds of SMITE makes all the bad feelings go away. I hope the same is with all you gamer's out there as well. Gaming News. Don’t know if you heard but Battlefield V Open Beta is coming in early September. According to the article the closed beta did provide a lot of good feedback. Let’s hope for the best and make for a fun game to play. Steam Summer Sale was last month. I bought Divinity 2 to satisfy my RPG world. Did you all pick up any good games? Speaking of Steam Summer Sale, did you know Steam banned over 40K users on the day after the sale ended? Some people just don’t learn. With technology the way it is now, if you don’t get caught now someday you will. Karma will also get you in the end. For the MMO players, World of Warcraft will release its new expansion on August 14th. I was a long time player, now I only play when the mood hits. This expansion though seems to bring back that old feeling of just Orcs vs Humans, could be a good thing. Maybe I will pick it up sooner than later. Entertainment News. Did any of you catch Ant-Man and the Wasp? Hope you stayed for the end credits scene, I feel like others in that is how the movie should have ended and not put it as an end credit scene. I few of my friends saw Sorry To Bother You, it might be showing in your art house theater. I haven’t seen it but hearing them talk about it and them saying it’s probably the best movie to come out all year. I might have to go out and see it. Mission Impossible - Fallout comes out next week. Early previews got good reviews. You get to see Superman with his mustache. LOL
  4. Battle On!!

    W]M[D Gaming is a community of people who have similar interests. We play all variety of games, from MMO’s to tabletops. Even enjoy watching movies in our Netflix channel. Please poke around if interested. I hope to get out some kind of article once a month, talking about the games we play and the shows we watch. The World of Games The game most are playing now tend to be scattered. Could be Diablo, Overwatch , even Rising Storm 2 Vietnam. We tend to rally and come together when something new that will peak our interest. Battlefield 5 recently was announced and maybe a bunch of us will get back into it and have some fun. Personally I would like a sequel to Battlefield 2142, but we can dream right. I always thought if they did a first person shooter type of game, wouldn’t be cool to be in the super power universe. Overwatch is a close reality to it, but want more open environment in the Battlefield type of genre. The Video Entertainment. Hope everyone catches Incredibles 2. The reviews are great. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom just started, Ant-Man and the Wasp next month. Westworld is almost over, but most people are probably waiting for Games of Thrones to come back and finish off. Did you hear HBO green lighted a Game Of Thrones Prequel, that will be a journey I am sure. Let’s talk again next month. Have fun and keep on gaming.
  5. Battlefield 5

    Trailer is here and its parts of WW2 http://www.darkhorizons.com/battlefield-v-official-reveal-trailer/
  6. Battlefield 5

    http://www.game-debate.com/news/25048/battlefield-5-will-have-a-full-single-player-campaign-ea-confirms Its coming.
  7. https://twitter.com/killat0n_/status/967481283445231617 Would like it to be a 2143 title, but we can dream right.
  8. Battlefront 2

    I know I haven't been on with you guys in awhile. But if people are getting this I might just be back on.
  9. Battlefront 2

    I saw the presentation they gave. Looks good again, but I had high hopes for the last one. Though this will have a single player campaign and a lot more maps and playable teams. Playing a droid could be cool. It will have people/heroes from all generous of star wars. In the clip above you can see Rey fighting against Darth Maul. Still want a BATTLEFIELD 2143 or BATTLEFIELD 2242, what ever they are going to call it.
  10. Happy Birthday

    LOL, Someone got old quick. Happy Birthday:)
  11. Have any of you tried it? Seems really cool with the stuff. Played on some 500% maps, there cool but you do want to limit some hero's like, Genji, Solider, Hanzo, Ana. Maybe something with all tanks, Played on a Zombie one where everything was super slowed down. The possibilities are endless on what you can do.
  12. Sad day

    Sorry Saber, looks like you got no love from Fern and that other healer. Heat of the moment I guess, lol.
  13. BF1...Not for me.

    I hope a Battlefield 2143 comes out one day.
  14. Blizzard - Blizcon

    So no new information on WoW, which was a surprise. Deepmind AI is going be using Starcraft 2 API data, for research. LOL, almost see a Skynet take over. Sombra Hero for Overwatch looks cool and the new Overwatch League coming. Best news I thought was the Necromancer Class coming to Diablo 3. I played a Necromancer in Diablo 2 to death, (pun intended).
  15. GeForce GTX 1070 or 1080 - the big question

    Talking with my tech buddies he said the true difference is the 1080 is only about 10% better, or if your planning on playing games in 4K. It comes down to money. If you feel 250 is worth the 10% or you know you will be playing in 4K, then get the 1080. But if you don't have 4K gaming in mind, just get the 1070. Beside next year the Titan cards will probably drop down in price as well. Technology just goes so fast.
