Xbox Game Pass

Reading Time: 1 minute

Earlier this morning, Xbox Game Pass was announced to be released this Spring. The ability to have an accessible game collection on demand and be able to try games before I want to buy them.

20% of the purchase of a game will it is included in the game pass, with a 10% discount on add-ons for those games as well. On a normal $59.99 game, a 20% discount would mean at $47.99 game, a savings of $12 a game. After buying more than 1 game a month, the discount works out.

With the continuation of Games with Gold as well, this service is going to make the release of Project Scorpio

I will definitely be purchasing this service. Time to clear my Xbox hard drive and work on my current backlog of games.

E3 Tickets

E3 tickets were opened up for the public this year. While attending E3 is on my bucket list, this year I will not be trying to get tickets.

With the Xbox’s Project Scorpio being released Holiday 2017, already being announced the biggest reveal for Microsoft is already announced.

Nintendo is already releasing a console before the event, so I also don’t expect anything huge from them.

Sony just released the Playstation Pro recently as well.

I will hedge my bets on nothing major happening this year and wait for another year before trying to get tickets.

Pokémon Go

I have been playing this app on and off since its release date on July 6th. I even bought the Pokémon Go Plus on release day to help me play the game. I have even bought some of its items through the store using the free Google Play money I earned.

Having been a fan of the Pokémon series since its release in the United States, I was excited when this game was first announced. While it hasn’t fully lived up to expectation, it still is a fun game to play when I am traveling.

With the valentines event happening, I am starting to play the game again and look forward to any other events they are going to release.

Hearthstone

Reading Time: 1 minute

Hearthstone is a game I am been getting into more and more recently. While I am not big into the lore of Warcraft, I enjoy playing as the many different characters the game has to offer. Currently, my main deck is using Jaina Proudmoore. I have yet to purchase any of the expansion packs yet, but I will most likely purchase them in the future.

In the past, I used to play World of Warcraft after a generous Christmas gift of the battle pack with every expansion pack to date. Currently, I am only missing Legion, as I have let my subscription lapse. In the future, I wish to get more into the lore of Warcraft and play more World of Warcraft to accompany my Hearthstone playing.

When I was younger I played the Pokémon Trading Card Game on the Game Boy Color, so this is part of the reason I like playing Hearthstone. I also reacquired the game on the Nintendo 3DS to relive part of my childhood, but more on that later.
