New Blog Red Dead Online Review #rdr2online


In this blog, we are going to break down my thoughts on the online version of Red Dead Online. This Beta has been out for a few months. I had some time to play it by taking a break from my grind in GTA Online. I am still over there and willing to play with my readers if you like.

Game Play

There is not much difference from story and online mode. There are not too much as far as modes. We all know GTA Online how to build up to where it is today. There is a short story mode and stranger missions. Stranger missions are where you will make most of your money. They can be fun and challenging. I really not a fan doing these in public lobbies. It is a pain because many players are bored. They will come and attack you. I love the fact that you can do a mission to help your Honor or Dishonor. Pick your path wisely. There is hunting and fishing that you can do in freemode.

Other Modes

These modes I don’t really didn’t get into yet. I am not a fan of PVP unless I have to. As I am writing this blog they are having double money and RP on the Showdown Series. They are fun if you are into PVP showdowns and racing. There are series of horse racing in the game.

In the end, this is the start of something pretty cool. I am really enjoying the online part of this game. I will say this and I know of the players are complaining of lack of things to do online. If they do it right, this will be as good as GTA Online or better. I would love to hear from you and your thoughts. Please, comment below or reach out to me on Twitter or email. I would love to play with my readers so please reach out. Thanks and play hard!

Cheers!

New Video Game Blog Future of GTA Online


In this blog, we are going to get into something that I saw on the Rockstar new feed this week. This will be a quick post.

Here is what I was talking about.

We’ve updated the Feedback section of the official GTA Online site to better serve as your one stop destination to share important gameplay experience feedback with us. Now with a new, easy-to-use interface and distinct categorizes for all aspects of the GTA Online experience, we hope you’ll continue telling us what you like, what you don’t like, and what you want to see in future GTA Online updates.

https://www.rockstargames.com/GTAOnline/feedback

In closing, this is pretty interesting. This tells us GTA players online that we are going to get more DLCs in the future. Which is pretty cool. I would throw as much as you can at Rockstar. Tell them what you want and the bugs out there. We know what they are and how many. It is pretty rare when a game maker does this. I know they are doing this in Red Dead. What does this say about Red Dead Online? I know we knew that game was going to be a niche game as far as online game. You can agree to disagree with that statement. We will get into that in another blog. Thanks for coming by and I will see you soon.

Cheers!

New Video Game Blog GTA Online New DLC Thoughts


In this blog, I am going to break down my thoughts and wants in the next DLC. I realize that we just finish up the last car from the Arena War DLC. Let’s get into this.

Mafia Family DLC

This will be close to MCs DLC but you can work in the mansions and casino in it. Mansions can be the new property to run missions out of it. Casino will have missions in it and no gamblin. I know many will be disappoint but it will keep Rockstar clean of online gambling issues. I believe this will be fun DLC. New storyline will help after the Arena War DLC.

Water DLC

This could be a ton of things. I am talking about a Navel DLC. How cool would it be to have Aircraft Carrier in game. I bet views from the water will be cool. They are pretty cool from the yacht. I know this means more weaponize vehicles. I am talking about more jets and boats. I want to see them open the yacht more and do missions from there.

Boiler Room DLC

This is like Mafia DLC. Rockstar will have to figure something with the stock market. The stock market could be like gambling in the casino. It is the online mirco transaction. If they do this right, it could be a really fun DLC.

After Hours Part 2

What do I need to say? It could be a pretty small DLC. Add more DJs to the game and some more missions. This one has been rumor for a bit.

In closing, I believe will get our next DLC in March or early April. I am always looking for new ways to make money and have fun hanging with my crew mates and friends. There was a DLC released in March but it was really small. I believe they will do the same. I want to hear your thoughts.

Thanks!

New Video Game Blog GTA Online Arean War Game Modes Review


In this blog, I am going to break down my thoughts on each of the arena war modes. This is my thoughts and no one else. Take it however you like. There is no wrong answer. I will talk about what is right and wrong and biggest problem of this arena war. Let us get into this review.

Bomb Ball

This series of matches are like Rocket League. It is pretty fun. You can use every car, trucks, and motorcycle. I do not recommend the Deathbike or Isis. It is best to use one of the cars so you can shot at the ball to move it towards the goal. This is a fun mode but when it is four rounds, it is way too long. Two rounds are perfect. The other issue is the players. I do not understand how players do not how to play this mode. It is straightforward. Overall, it is fun and perfect number is first to win two rounds. It helps with the value of the pay out. It is still not fair. If you are rich or have time, this is perfect way to spread your time. Honestly, you can do client jobs or VIP work and it will be worth more of your time.

Tag Team

The players are not issue in this mode. The only way that they are the problem is when they do not tag out right away. They try to be the hero. There are four teams with four garages to tag in and out. Time frame can be vary from match to match. There is a player from each team crashing and shooting at each other. Rest of the team is in VIP suite. There they are shooting machine gun, missles, RC cars, etc. This is one of the best mode asides Wreck It and Game Master. I will get in those here soon. The only problem there is no pay out right now and no one is barely in the arena. When it is double cash and RP, this is really fun and kind of worth your time.

Game Master

This is another straightforward mode. One team is out in the arena gathering these gold coins. The second team is in the VIP box trying to kill them. This one pays good as along as you can get two teams together. No one is playing the Arena War. Pay out is good when double money and a pretty fun game mode.

Wreck It

This is Rockstars version of the classic movie Deathrace. It is a race and you do whatever you need to do to win. Guns to mines are all in play. The more laps you go the more traps are unlocked during the race. Do not think the VIP box is not playing a role. They are available after a player gets knocked out. They can get involve by spaining the arena wheel in the box. They get a free spin when locked out or finish. This is by far my favorite mode. Once again, if not double money, the pay out is not good.

Here Comes The Monsters

Monster trucks versus tiny cars. I feel like they put this in for the kids that should not being playing this game. I do see a lot of players enjoying this mode. It is not my favorite but it is fun. Let us face all these modes are fun.

Buzzer Beat

This is a motorcycle only mode. You ride around with a bike that has a time bomb. You have to collect the gold coins through out the arena to extend your time on your bomb. If you are the last player standing, you win the match. It is fun but not my go to mode in the arena.

Carnage

You can play this mode in two ways. They are Last Team Standing or Last Man Standing. It is what the title of the mode says. You are out there trying fo destroy everyone or the other team. If you are really good with one vehicle, I recommend you using that one.

My Top List of the Arena War Modes:

  1. Wreck It
  2. Game Master
  3. Buzzer Beater
  4. Carnage
  5. Tag Team
  6. Here Comes the Monster
  7. Bomb Ball

In closing, the game modes in the Arena War DLC are ton of fun. I just feel that Rockstar missed the mark. What I mean is if the pay out was so much better. It could make this a nice money grind for those players and to balance of how expense this DLC. Overall, it is fun and I cannot say that enough. Rockstar knows what they did wrong and I hope they will fit it. Happy gaming everyone!

Cheers!

New Blog GTA Arena War DLC Review


In this video game blog, I am going to break down the new DLC from GTA Online. Rockstar released their first DLC after the release of RDR 2. The views on this review are my thoughts. Let’s get into this review.

The Maze Bank Arena has been closed online since 2013. We finally have a chance to get inside and see what is in there. I love how we have another garage with arena mechanic, weapon specialist, and Benny’s guy. The last two characters have been in the game just in other properties. I also love how they tied in the After Hours radio station in the garage. You will be getting double money and RP until January 14th.

In closing, I love new features and tiers to level up. I love all the new cars and the looks of them. The problem that I have is the pay walls. You have to level up in sponsorship tier to unlock rewards. 0 to level 1000 and it is including cars outside the Arena, weapons on the cars and clothes. Clothes should not have a pay wall. Overall, it is a fun thing to do. I believe this is for the rich player or kids that play GTA Online. In future blogs, I will break down my thoughts on each of the modes and cars. Until next Cheers.

New Beer Blog Avery White Rascal Ale


In this beer blog, we are going to get into another beer from Avery Brewery.  This beer is their flagship, which is White Rascal Ale.  If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this Mountain area craft brewery.  If you have not, please, read them to get to know Avery Brewery.  Let us get into this white ale.

It has a light yellow to strew white color with a white constant head. The smell has a lemon to citrus notes. The taste has a citrus to lemon refreshing notes with lemon like aftertaste. It is extremely drinkable beer.

Here is a description from their website (www.averybrewing.com):

White Rascal

  • YEAR ROUND BREWS
  • BELGIAN-STYLE WHITE ALE
  • 5.6% ABV

An authentic Belgian style white ale, this Rascal is unfiltered and cleverly spiced with coriander and CuraƧao orange peel producing a refreshingly zesty classic ale.

In the end, I am not a fan of white and wheat beers. I do not know why I keep trying these beers.  I guess I am hoping that I will like them.  I did like them back in the day when I started in the craft beer world.  I guess it is the side of me that loves trying beers that I never had and new ones.  This beer falls in the beer that I never had.  This one is not too bad. If I need something light during the summer days, I will pick this one up.  I recommend this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

New Beer Blog Avery Old Jubilation Ale (2016)


In this winter beer blog, we are going to get into a beer from Avery Brewery.  Avery Brewery started in 1993 in Colorado.  Their first beer that was in package was their IPA.  They started packaging in cans in 2010.  They have won several awards throughout the years.  They moved into their new brewery in 2015.  Let us get into this English Strong Ale.

It has a clear amber color with an off white color head. The aroma has a sweet candy like notes. The taste has a sweet candy to malty notes with sweet malty aftertaste. It is not really drinkable beer.

Here is a description from their website (www.averybrewing.com):

Old Jubilation Ale

  • SEASONAL SELECTION
  • ENGLISH STRONG ALE
  • 8.3% ABV

Our winter strong ale has a gorgeous mahogany hue, a hint of hazelnuts, and a finish reminiscent of mocha and toffee. No spices, just a perfect blend of five specialty malts.

Here is their website and twitter addresses:

Closing, I love this brewery.  They make some great beers.  I found them while living in the Chicagoland market.  Since I moved back to Michigan, I have a hard time finding their beers.  If I do, I have to look at the code date.  If I find it fresh, I burn myself out.  I buy and drinking them only for a while.  That is a good thing.  I like it. This is a great English Strong Ale.  What I really like about this beer is they did not throw nutmeg or cinnamon.  This beer is a different pace from the rest of the winter seasonals.  I will search it out next year. I highly recommend this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

New Beer Blog Beards Brewery Serendipity Porter


In this beer blog, we are going to get into a beer from Beards Brewery.  It is their Serendipity Porter.  We will get into a little history and then into the beer.  Beards Brewery was founded in 2012 by Ben Slocum and Peter Manthei in Petoskey, Michigan.  Let us get into this porter.

It has a jet black color without a head on this porter. The aroma has a chocolate, coffee, and a slight smokey notes. The taste has a slight creamy chocolate with a smoke to coffee notes on the back end of the tasting experience. The aftertaste has some nice smokey notes. It is not really drinkable. It is one maybe two beers and move on to the next beer.

Here is a description from their website (www.beardsbrewery.com):

Exceptionally smooth with a pronounced chocolatey flavor and balanced sweetness. Subtle notes of cherry and smoke on the finish. Pairs well with desserts featuring peanut butter and chocolate, or a second glass of Serendipity

Here is their website and Twitter addresses:

Ending, there is so many new craft breweries opening and entering the beer market.  I believe it is hard for new craft breweries to do something different than the other breweries.  It is a solid beer. I love it, however, it is not Great Lakes Fitz. I will buy  Great Lakes’ Porter over this porter.  I am not saying it a bad beer.  It is a great beer and they did a great job.  I can get Great Lakes Porter cheaper. I recommend this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!   Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

New Beer Blog Pipeworks Ninja Vs Unicorn Double IPA


In this beer blog, we are going to feature a beer from Pipeworks Brewery.  It is their flagship  beer, which is Ninja Vs. Unicorn Double IPA.  If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this small and upcoming Chicago base craft brewery.  If you have not, please, read them to get to know this Midwest craft brewery.  Let us get into this double IPA.

It has a slight cloudy golden color with a white constant head. The aroma has a heavy grapefruit notes. The taste has a nice grapefruit to citrus notes with a dry hop bitter aftertaste. It is pretty drinkable for a Double IPA.

Here is a description from the beer bottle:

Ninja Vs. Unicorn celebrates the epic battle two of the biggest hop-heads of lore.  Brewed with over five pounds of hops per barrel, this unfiltered double IPA is sure to please the most discerning hop lover.  Whether you’re rooting for the mythical horned horse or the deadly assassin of the east, we hope you’ll enjoy Ninja Vs. Unicorn.

Here is their website and twitter addresses:

Ending, this is a great beer.  I love the hops they use in this beer.  It is pretty well-balanced for being a double India Pale Ale.  There is a nice malty backbone but I kind feel it should be stronger.  I can live with it.  I have to say for a beer that is in 22oz bottle.  It is well worth the price.  I have always felt beers in 22oz bottles are not worth the price.  To me, this one lives up to the price.  I recommend you trying this brew.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

Closing, I am getting really burn out on pumpkin beers.  It is not as excited as it was before.  I really did not like beer at all and normally I like just about everything that this brewery puts out on the market.  I was very disappointed.  It might have been something that I ate or drink before.  I will not know until next season.  I recommend you to try this beer once.  Please, let me know that you think.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!   Metal it!  \m/
