The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild (HD) [Nintendo Switch] Live Stream – Part 1

 

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was released on March 3, 2017 for the Wii U and Nintendo Switch. It was the final first-party game to release on Wii U. On the other hand, Breath of the Wild was the launch title for the Switch. In addition to its platform releases, it won numerous awards, like Game of the Year from The Game Awards 2017 last December.

I stream on Twitch most Tuesdays and Thursdays until late May. You can catch them around 8 pm EST / 5 pm EST at SonicmanTheBest on Twitch . Fridays are my bonus stream days, which is set aside for extra streams if I have the time. The Switch version of Breath of the Wild is the main game I will mainly be playing for the next several weeks.

I have made it to over 2,000 followers. Thank you everyone! I could not have done it without all of my supporters here on Nintendo Switch Amino!

You Can Get A Partial Refund If You Bought A PlayStation 3 In Between 2006 And 2010

Sony released the PlayStation 3 back during the holiday season of 2006. That is almost over eleven and a half years ago, today. For people who bought a PlayStation 3 in the years 2006 to 2010, you may be able to get a partial refund of $65.

According to KCTV5, there was a lawsuit in 2016 where Sony lost the case. Sony promised PS3 owners the ability to use an alternate operating system. After 2010, that was no longer the case. They are now legally required to give a partial refund of $65.00 USD on certain requests. You must file a claim by April 15. Sony was also sued for false advertising with the PlayStation VITA in 2015 for false advertising. See Engadget’s article for details.

Over 81 million PlayStation 3 Consoles have been sold worldwide since 2006. I do not expect 81 million users to request the $65 refund. But even out of the 81 million, you had to own a PS3 during 2006 through 2010, or you do not qualify for this refund, such as myself. If 10 million people requested a refund and depending on the circumstances on whether or not they receive less than or the whole $65.00, (The form says something about that.) Sony could lose $650M USD! That is almost a billion dollars there. I do not expect Sony to lose more than a couple hundred-million dollars, but there is still a possibility.

Tomb Raider 2018 Film Review *WITH SPOILERS

THIS REVIEW INCLUDES MAJOUR *SPOILERS! VIEW AT YOUR OWN RISK!

I saw Tomb Raider over the weekend and for the most part, I enjoyed the movie. Tomb Raider is based off the 2013 reboot Tomb Raider video games from SQUARE ENIX. The movie was from the production company Warner Bros. and some other studios. SQUARE ENIX also had more of a role then I thought at first. It does follow the game to an extent, but it isn’t exact. To some degree, that is okay. They can’t release a ten to twenty hour movie and expect everyone to go flock to their local theatre. Therefore, they must make changes.

The film features Lara Croft, no surprise. It’s Tomb Raider. Her father, Lord Richard Croft, was reported to have been killed while he was away for much of Lara’s childhood researching those myths he was so interested in. Lara wants to continue her father’s research so she adventures to Honk Kong to find someone to help her seek the land of the rising sun to look for her Himiko. After the ship… or boat sinks, they have no choice but to abandon it and get to shore. The island they visit is taken over by a group of men called Trinity. Lara also learns that her father, Richard is still alive.

Afterwards, Lara and Richard are kidnapped by Trinity, whom force them to open the entrance to the tomb at gun point. She figures out the combination so they could enter. But after all of them nearly died from the floor collapsing inside, they find the tomb. (One guy did die, actually.) With the touch of Himiko, one will become infected and turn into some kind of monster. Additionally, Richard becomes infected and sacrifices himself to blow up the location so no one can ever get to Himiko in Yamatai again. Lara escapes and defeats Trinity.

The acting was fantastic. Alcia Vikander did a great job at her performance. The acting in general was good. But Vikander did some pretty intense moves.

As for the soundtrack, I was not entirely impressed with it. It did have its moments throughout the film, however the opening and end credits of the film… That is not my kind of music. I wish they had the main theme from the games.

Is it worth to see Tomb Raider or just play the games? Well, for a person who likes action-adventure movies, I would recommend seeing it. Keep in mind though it isn’t perfect, but it is a decent movie. As for the core gamer, it’s hard to say. If you like the video games, most people will prefer that over the film. The question though is should gamers see the movie. I can’t really say for sure. You will have to decide for yourself.

Yakuza Kiwami 2 Launches Exclusively For PlayStation 4 On August 28

Only a moment ago, SEGA announced Yakuza Kiwami 2 would be coming to western countries. It is a sequel to the first Kiwami. Yakuza Kiwami 2 game is also a remake of the PlayStation 2 classic, Yakuza 2.

Yakuza Kiwami 2 will arrive in the west on August 28 as a PlayStation 4 exclusive. There are also hints that SEGA may make a Kiwami 3 and onward. Generally, Yakuza announcements take place at TOKYO GAME SHOW. So, we may not hear about Yakuza Kiwami 3 until TGS 2018 or even TGS 2019. However, there will more than likely be a remake to Yakuza 3. Most Yakuza games release in Japan first.
