Back at it!!

Helloo!!!! Man it has been a crazy year on all levels of my life. But one thing is for sure, gaming has been pushed to the back.  The good news….I’m back!!!

I have not necessarily been away from gaming, but I have definitely been away from the “social” side of my gaming.  Very little streaming, very few YouTube creations and my idea of a podcast was pushed waayyyy back.  But not for much longer.

I have finally settled into a more regular play schedule with my “guys” and even started finding more time to stream and work on my streaming set up.  And now after lots of thought and struggle, it looks like I will finally record my first podcast.  No hints as to what it is yet, but format has pretty much been set.

There will be at least two of us, but I’m hoping to get some of the other guys in my gaming “crew” to be pretty regular on it.  As you can guess, it’s going to be a gaming podcast, but with a slight spin on most gaming podcasts.  Not sure how it will turn out, but looking forward to the experience of recording it, publishing it, and hearing it turn into its own thing.

While you wait for that here is a little of what I have been doing the last few weeks.  I have played and finished GTA V on the Xbox 360 a few years ago, but over the last year I have picked it up again for the PS4.  My buddies and I have gone through most of the missions and have completed all of the “Heists.”  I have been replaying the single player missions with the goal of beating the game again… but probably with all of the side quests this time.  I have been recording and publishing these quests as kind of a walk through for other players.  Here are two videos that i have completed.

This is one of the intro missions for Trevor, one of the main characters of the story.

Here is another for Trevor.  The last mission that leads him into town looking for his long lost partner.

Like I said earlier, I have already completed this game once, but I just seem to keep coming back to it. Great gameplay, fun and interesting story, and cool customizable cars!!

Thanks again for stopping by! Please be sure to like the videos and follow me on my channel.

Also stop by the stream sometime and hang out! If i’m not there be sure to follow and it will let you know the next time I am on!

Have you played through GTA V yet?  If so, leave a comment with your favorite GTA moment!

Diablo 3!!

Hey there!  If you are back again one thing has stayed constant this month…my play through of Diablo 3.

After beating the main game I decided to get the “Reaper of Souls” expansion.  This expansion includes a higher level cap (70), a new act (Act V), a new playable character (the Crusader) and alternate game modes after reaching level 60, (Rifts and Bounties).

I jumped into Act V with my Demon Hunter that was level 47 and all I can say is that I am hooked more than ever!

The story is Great! This time we are on the hunt for Death himself! The different areas that you are sent to during the story are beautifully drawn and the the new monsters that you encounter are bigger, badder, and more dangerous than ever.

One thing that I have liked about this expansion are the “events” that take place throughout the story.  These are basically side missions that offer a break from the story but a chance for more experience, gold, and loot…we love loot!

Below is a video of a few of the events that I found while traveling through Westmarch Commons.  This is the beginning area of Act V, that starts the transition into the main story.

Clip one is at The Killing Floor. I meet up with Uzkez – The Annihilator. I got a Legendary Crossbow off of him and Ding 48 with the turn in.

Clip two is at the House of Deep Sorrow. Here I see Lady Victoria and after saving her, she turns on me. She dropped the “Horrible Secret” Lore Book, which you need to read for the “People Finder” achievement.

Last clip is at Tustine’s Brewery. Fhosgrave the Usurper – the Vile Reaper, is the boss in this area. I didn’t get any decent drops from him, but still a fun and quick fight.

I really like the extra’s that Blizzard has added in this expansion.  Even though I have yet to try any of the Level 60 game modes, I definitely feel i have gotten my moneys worth with this new Act and all of the side quests that are just in the story mode.

Hopefully by the next time I write here I will have my Demon Hunter to Level 70, I will have defeated Death (again),  and I will have had a chance to run some of the Rifts and Bounties and acquired more Epic Loot.

What was the last game that you played that had a great expansion or updated content?

Something else to try.

Hey there again everyone.  Thanks again for stopping by.  I wanted to share with you another place to find me, and hopefully get a little more interaction from me.  I am starting to do more streaming of my game play.   My plan is to stream pretty much every time I play any game.   My setup is still in the building stages, but I am working through those technical hiccups as they come up.  Also my schedule is still very crazy with work and some online schooling, but I still want to be involved in the gaming community and maybe create my own little community of fellow gamers.

Head over to http://www.twitch.tv/oldskewlmarc and be sure to follow me.  That way you will get a notice of when I am gaming.

Also head to http://www.youtube.com/oldskewlmarc and subscribe there as well.  I will be posting highlights of the stream.

If you stream games or have a YouTube channel, be sure to leave me a comment so i can stop by and say hey!  I love to support fellow gamers and streamers!!

Thanks again for stopping by!!
