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

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 !

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!

Check out 5 mins of both cinematic and game-play footage as I play the first little bit of Halo 2 Anniversary.

PatMan Plays Killer Instinct 2 Arcade.

KI season 2 is upon us and although many of the best fighters in the franchise were released in season 1, there is still good reason to check it out. Not only is there the return of TJ Combo and Maya , but if you chose the “ultra edition”, you will get the classic KI2 arcade game. KI2 arcade was not as popular nor as common as KI was back in the day , but it’s still a great game in It’s own rights. KI2 will look and especially sound a LOT like KI Gold on the N64. But that is for good reason as KI Gold was, essentially, a KI2 remake of sorts for the N64. Check out some footage below and I will see you all, on the flip-side!

PatMan Plays Volgarr The Viking.

Do you remember the days of playing classic 16 bit side scrolling hack and slash games? Do you remember just how bloody hard they were? Well prepare to re-experience the fun and the frustration that only a game like that can deliver, only this time on Xbox One. Volgarr The Viking is a fun yet challenging 2D old school game that has be swearing out loud at both the difficulty and the occasional cheapness in level design. Yet, at the same time, with a big smile on my face. It is fun. It is retro. Most important, it is FREE on Xbox one games with gold. Check out some footage below and I will see you all on the flip-side!

PatMan Plays Evolve. The Big Alpha

There was a time several years ago when the WPO crew played online together on a near nightly basis. Games like Battlefield, L4D, Halo ,COD and others. We would have parties of up to 6 people, all enjoying the fun that online multiplayer offers when played with a group of friends. This weekend, I have been playing the Alpha for Evolve , a team based FPS that could very well have been great fun in the past , but now playing alone it just isn’t enough to get me excited.
