PatMan Plays More Halo 2 Anniversary.

The holidays are upon us and for many people that means time off for relaxation and games! Unfortunately, the opposite applies for me this time of year, however I did get to play a bit more of Halo 2 anniversary in the last week or so and as always, record some highlights. So, sit back for a short video of me playing this impressive remake of a 10 year old game and I will see you all on the flip-side!

PatMan Plays Mario Kart 8. Yoshi Amiibo Costume Unlocked.

Another fun weekend is upon us and in between all the Christmas festivities I managed to pick up a few Amiibo. I bought 3 for $29.99 and at a price of 10 bucks each I am impressed with the quality of the little figures. Of course, there is more to the Amiibo than just the physical statues, they unlock goodies in certain WiiU and 3DS games. I unlocked new costumes in Mario Kart 8 using my 3 Amiibo. If I can pick up more of these collectable figures for only 10 bucks a pop, I will surly do it. Of course, Mario, Lugig and Link are hard to find at the Holidays. Go figure. Check out the Yoshi outfit my Mii is sporting in the video below and , as always, I will see you all on the flip-side!

PatMan Plays Halo 2 Anniversary. Enter The Arbiter.

When I first played Halo 2, back a decade ago, I didn’t really like the idea of playing as one of the “bad guys”, heck as playing as anyone other than the main man 117 himself, to be honest. I didn’t know who or what the Arbiter was, and didn’t care much. But, as the game and the story progressed I did get used to it. Now with Halo 2 Anniversary, which of course is only one part of the gigantic collection of Halo games known as the Master Chief Collection, I have a different point of view about the Arbiter. I am really enjoying replaying the Arbiter levels, and with he help of the great new CGI cinematics, I am appreciating this part of Halo 2 much more. I guess it helps to know the story of the Arbiter in Halo 2 and Halo 3 along with the conflict that happens within the covenant when coming back to play Halo 2. Anyways, here is nearly 5 mins of gameplay and cut scene footage of me playing Halo 2 anniversary , Arbiter style! See you all on the flip-side!


Wonderpod(Thanksgiving EP)

This weeks Wonderpod is a little different. Instead of the usual show I sat down with Chris Loyd for a chat. No set topics just the two of us talking about whatever came to mind. As usual I probably talked way to much. It was awesome to be able to sit down with Chris at a time that was good for both of us. Next week its back to normal and will be a live show. iTunes

PatMan Plays Halo 2 Anniversary Online.

Every single multiplayer map ever created in Halo is available in the Master Chief Collection , including several “PC Exclusive” ones. That is well over 100 maps in total. But in Halo 2 Anniversary,they went one step further and put a new generation coat of paint on 6 of the old classic Halo 2 maps. These maps look brand new, however they play exactly like the 10 year old game did back in the day. That means no sprinting, no weapon drops, no weapon customization and absolutely no armor abilities. Sorry guys, no Jet Pack action! Also, the button configuration is that of the 10 year old classic, which takes some getting used to. To be honest, the entire experience took some getting used to and I am very rusty at the old Halo 2 game play. How rusty? Well check out 5 mins of game play footage and find out. I do enjoy the combination of Theater Mode and the Xbox One ability to record by simply saying “Xbox Record that.” I wish it was this easy back when I made Halo reach team Wonderpod movies back in the day. So, sit back and check out the classic Halo 2 maps with classic gameplay running on new graphics and I will see you all on the flip-side!

PatMan Plays Mario Kart DLC, part 2

By now you have all seen how great the DLC is for Mario Kart. 8 tracks, 3 new characters, only 8 bucks. So I wont go on about it, instead I will post 2 new videos of the DLC in action. Besides, there is a certain green Spartan calling my name so I have no time to chat this week. Check out some Mario Kart 8 action below, and I will see you all on the flip side !


Wonderpod Episode 234

We got a new Wonderpod right here. Kind of a random low key show this week. Mostly gaming this time around. Still working through some audio changes so things are a bit wonky. Like the banner says it’s a show! Have a great weekend.

PatMan Plays Mario Kart 8 DLC.

What is going ON , people? I downloaded the first DLC for Mario Kart 8, and its great. The 4 all new tracks bring new life to the game while the 4 retro tracks are as good, if not better than ever. I really am enjoying the Excitbike track and also, of course, the Zelda track. So much, in fact, that I saved a video from each race and put then here for your viewing pleasures. I am a bit rusty in my Mario Kart 8 racing, but these videos show off 2 of the 8 new tracks and also a few of the new characters including Link and Cat Peach! Have a good weekend and i will seee you all on the flip side!
