GamersUnitedGG Community Event: Video Game Reality House!

Happy Friday Players! GamersUnitedGG will be launching our 2nd Community Event on October 1st.

 

We are starting a Video Game Reality House and the interview process for the characters to be accepted is brutal. You can help us narrow down the characters that will be admitted into Season 1. To participate, post a blog response with the video game character you would like to see in the house and your reasons why they would win! You can link your responses in the comments so that our Producers can review and vote. The final cast will be revealed between now and Episode 1’s start date of October 1st so post your responses by September 17th!

 

Additional details on the event and other ways to participate will be unveiled over the coming month on the blog and Twitter.

 

What is the Video Game Reality House?

 

Contestants will be placed in a house where the goal is to be crowned the Video Game Champion. Like many Reality Shows, the characters will have to survive the social and physical games to make it to the Final Boss Battle. Contestants will compete in video game related challenges where a MVP will be crowned. The MVP will have immunity for the week and gain privileges to help further their position in the game. At the end of each week, characters will be nominated for elimination and 1 or more characters will run out of lives.

 

How you can participate:

The community will be able to try and save their favorite characters via the Twitter Instant Save Vote or by writing a Confessional Post on the Wednesday before the elimination. The Confessional Posts will be your way to champion for your character as to why they shouldn’t be eliminated and add to the excitement of the Reality Show by revealing secrets the character may have witnessed during the week.

Confessional: Snake from Metal Gear Solid

After the challenge today we all gathered back at the house for a barbecue. Everyone was off in their cliques talking strategy and preparing for the elimination vote and I was doing my own thing… 

THEBOX_1
They’ll Never See Me Coming!

hanging out in boxes you know. I overheard 2 Players scheming on a member of their alliance. They’re planning to get the other Players in the House to vote for their buddy in the coming elimination. This is why I prefer to stay close to my box… you can’t trust anyone. Who were the 2 culprits you say? You’d never believe me if I told you…

Caught Redddd Handed

The Confessionals can be used to save your character, throw others under the bus and cause more drama for the eliminations and episodes. Nothing is off limits in the confessionals.

The Twitter Instant Save Vote will be posted on The GamersUnitedGG Twitter from Tuesday until Thursday as a Pinned Message. You can vote to instantly save a character from being eliminated.

Both the Confessional Posts and Twitter Instant Saves will be taken into account during the eliminations each Friday.

 

What Next?

 

Now we start the selection process for the video game characters that should be placed in the house for Season 1. 16 Characters in total will be chosen for this first season.  You can nominate 1 or multiple characters up until September 17th. Tune into the blog and Twitter to see which Characters have been selected! Well, what are you waiting for? Post to your blog which video game characters would be great additions to the Video Game Reality Show and don’t forget to link your responses in the comments so that we can see who you are nominating.

 

I’m super excited for this event and hopefully this can turn into a multi-season community event! Have Fun!

August Question of The Month: My Video Game Family!

Happy Monday Players! Each month the great people over at Later Levels hosts a Question of the Month segment where gamers are encouraged to participate. With the new format, select volunteers are coming up with the questions and this month Brandon from That Green Dude wanted to find out which video game characters would be in your video game family. Power up Players to meet my video game family!

Many of us say that we would like to live in a video game world but surely we would have a family. My question is, which video game characters would be a part of your family in a gaming world of your choice?

Yoshi-

yoshi-mario-1070269

Pets can be like family and Yoshi would be my pet dinosaur and best friend! I can see this being a Scooby and Shaggy type relationship where we do everything together!

Orisa-

orisa

Orisa from Overwatch would be my mother. She is kind and very protective. In Overwatch, Orisa’s ability involves a shield to protect the team, a gravity ball to throw enemies off balance and her ultimate boosts the attacks of her teammates. Just like a mother, Orisa is hard to take down and makes sure to protect those that she loves!

Cayde-6 –

cayde

Cayde-6 from Destiny is one of my favorite characters for his wit, his cunning and his skills on the battlefield. I can see Cayde being a brother in my family. One of the reasons I love Cayde is that he is always looking for the easy way out, whether neglecting his responsibilities or getting someone else to do his duties. He has the antics, the humor and the protective ability to be an older brother and I would love to have him on my team.

Scorpion –

Scorpion

My dad would be non other than Scorpion from the Mortal Kombat Franchise! Get Over Hereeeee! Yup Scorpion would keep the family in line and make sure that I have my head on straight, even if he has to force it.

Chun-Li –

ChunLi

I have always looked up to Chun-Li from the Street Fighter series since I was a little girl, so I couldn’t see my family being complete without having her as a sister. I would probably be the youngest and Chun-Li would be the eldest of the 3 of us.

Minecraft Sheep and Cow-

Moomers and my brethren the Minecraft Sheep would be my friends. You can’t have a complete family without having those friends that are like family visiting you everyday. When I play Minecraft I often wear the skinned sheep skin and walk around with my brethren in the field. Moomers, the minecraft cows have always understood me and we get into antics when I’m leading them across the water with wheat in hand. Good times!

Now that my family is set, where would we live? Kirby’s Dream World is a great option! I can just see the clouds and the different fun and bright stages. I like things to be light and fun so Kirby’s dreamland would be my choice!

KMA_Dream_Land
Doesn’t this look beautiful!

Those are the video game members of my family! Who would you have as members of your family and why? Let’s Talk Video games!

Harry Potter Tag

Happy Saturday! Yesterday I was reading Links Loves by Megan at A Geeky Gal and she really loved the Harry Potter Tag that she read during the week. I was in love with the concept so I decided to participate!

RULES:

  • Write 30 character names on pieces of paper.
  • Put them in a jar/mug/cup.
  • Randomly choose two pieces of paper for every question. In each of the 15 questions, you have to decide which of the two characters fits the question and which one is not good enough.

 

  1. YOU ONLY HAVE ONE MORE SPOT ON YOUR SPELLING BEE TEAM. WHO DO YOU PICK TO COMPLETE YOUR TEAM?  The 2 names I drew from the pot were #23 Professor Moody and #3 Hermoine. This is a no brainer… I’m choosing Hermoine every time for the Spelling Bee. If I had to choose the character myself without leaving it to chance, I’m choosing Hermoine. Who else would you choose?
  2. BOTH CHARACTERS WANT TO KILL YOU. WHICH ONE WOULD YOU KILL FIRST SO YOU HAVE A BETTER CHANCE OF SURVIVING? In This match I was hoping to pull the name of a villain so I didn’t have to fight any main characters. No such luck, should have had Professor Slughorn whip up a lucky potion. I selected #2 Ron and #22 Hagrid. Hands down I’m killing Hagrid first. I feel like I can take Ron right now as a muggle lol
    ron
  3. YOU’RE ON THE BACHELOR/BACHELORETTE AND YOU’RE DOWN TO THESE TWO CHARACTERS. WHICH ONE ARE YOU GOING TO GIVE YOUR ROSE TO? For this question I gave my Day 1 A1 co-worker Liz (Also my Harry Potter guru lol) the pot so that she could select my 2 contestants. She chose #11 McGonagall and #5 Cedric. I love me some Robert Pattinson so I’m going to choose Cedric for the win!
    cedric
  4. YOU’VE BEEN CHOSEN FOR THE HUNGER GAMES. WHO WOULD MOST LIKELY VOLUNTEER IN YOUR PLACE? Liz again picked for me and she chose 2 horrible prospects; #19 Dudley and #29 Horrace Slughorn. Initially I was going to say Slughorn but then I remembered… I could probably trick Dudley into going in my place lol. I promise I did not test for Slytherin lol.

    dudley
    Have Fun tribute lol

     

  5. YOU’RE STRANDED ON AN ISLAND WITH AN ACTIVE VOLCANO. WHICH CHARACTER WOULD YOU THROW INTO A VOLCANO AS A SACRIFICE? Liz chose #24 Gilderoy Lockhart and #4 Luna. I’m definitely not throwing Luna in the Volcano as a sacrifice so bye bye Lockhart. Luna can help me scarifice him to the Volcano lol.
    Luna
  6. YOU’RE THE NEXT DC/MARVEL SUPERHERO (WITH YOUR OWN T.V. SHOW, OF COURSE). WHO IS YOUR SIDEKICK? Liz chose #15 Voldemort and #14 Bellatrix. Hands down I’m choosing Bellatrix! Bellatrix would be an awesome sidekick, she’s loyal, she’s entertaining and she’s crazy powerful. I can’t trust Voldemort.
    Bellatrix
  7. YOU’RE A MANAGER OF AN AVOCADO-ADMIRING COMPANY. WHO WOULD YOU FIRE FOR LACK OF COMMUNICATION SKILLS? Liz decided to have the rest of the team participate. Sam selected #12 Dumbledore and #6 Seamus. Bye Bye Seamus lol
    dumbledore
  8. YOU’VE JUST FINISHED A BOOK IN WHICH YOUR FAVORITE CHARACTER DIES. WHICH CHARACTER IS MOST LIKELY TO COMFORT YOU? Mrs Veronica picked again and selected #18 Aunt Petunia and #10 Nearly Headless Nick. Petunia is not comforting anyone other than her husband and son so I’m going with Nearly Headless Nick.
    Nearly_Headless_Nick
  9. UGH, IT’S HIGH SCHOOL. WHO WOULD MOST LIKELY BE PART OF THE POPULAR CLIQUE? My lead Sasha picked #1 Harry and #17 Dobby. As much as it pains me to pick Harry, it has to be him. Harry’s reputation will have everyone flocking to his side, whether friend or foe. Don’t believe me… remember when Draco tried to recruit Harry in Sorcerer’s Stone? Poor Dobby, he’d be my friend though!
    draco
  10. THE DAY HAS ARRIVED – YOU’RE FINALLY A YEAR OLDER! WHO WOULD HAVE THE NERVE TO FORGET YOUR BIRTHDAY? Megan from work chose #16 Hedwig and #7 Draco Malfoy. Hands down Draco is forgetting my birthday. Hedwig would never and she’s probably delivering all of the birthday cards to me that morning lol. I’ll save her a slice of cake.
    hedwig
  11. YOU’VE JUST FOUND AN UPCOMING BOOKTUBE STAR! WHO WOULD IT MOST LIKELY BE? Liz grabbed the pot back and chose #25 Ginny Weasley and #8 Crab. This one was tough because I could see Ginny having a channel where she’s spying on her brothers and showing how to survive in a family of older brothers. On the other hand I can see Crab doing extreme sports or something like the Ridiculous show. After consulting with my co-workers we decided that Ginny would be the bigger Star!
    Ginny_Weasley_hbp_promo
  12. SLEEPOVER TIME! UNFORTUNATELY, YOU CAN ONLY INVITE ONE PERSON. WHO WOULD YOU INVITE? Liz chose Lucius Malfoy #20 and #26 Fred Weasley. Lucius is hot. He’s coming to my sleepover. Sorry Fred.
    LuciusMalfoy_WB_F2_LuciusMalfoyMidshot_V1_Promo_080615_Port
  13. BAM, YOU’RE PREGNANT. WHO IS THE FATHER/MOTHER? Next #13 Sirius Black and #9 Goyle. I mean Sirius Black hands down. Sirius would probably have been a top contender if the choices were not random so when I seen his name first, the 2nd character didn’t even matter lol.
    SiriusBlack_WB_F5_SiriusSmilingInDoorway_HP5D-11158
  14. YOU’VE JUST WRITTEN A SUPER IMPORTANT TEXT. WHO WOULD SEE IT, BUT NOT REPLY? This time #27 George Weasley and #30 Kingsley Shacklebolt was selected. George would definitely reply but Kingsley would be too concerned with the Ministry of Magic to reply to my texts. that and you know, fighting against Death Eaters lol.
    kingsley
  15. YOU’VE JUST WOKEN UP AND IT’S TIME FOR BREAKFAST. YOUR MUM’S BEEN REPLACED BY… WHO?! The last remaining pair were #28 Dolores Umbridge and #21 Severus Snape. Would anyone pick Umbridge? She is horrible!!!! Thank God for Severus. He would keep me sane, teach me magic and I would be powerful!
Dolores-Umbridge-Order-of-the-Phoenix
Dear Mummy…. YIKES!

This was really fun to participate in and just for some added content below are my responses if I didn’t have to randomly Select characters:

 

  1. Hermoine
  2. Voldemort Vs Umbridge… I would choose to Kill Voldemort first
  3. My final 2 are Lucius Malfoy and Sirius Black. I’m choosing Sirius
  4. I can see Harry Potter volunteering in my place
  5. Gilderoy Lockhart
  6. Bellatrix
  7. Dudley
  8. Molly Weasley
  9. Draco Malfoy
  10. Neville Longbottom (If he doesn’t have his Remembral lol)
  11. Ginny Weasley
  12. Luna Lovegood
  13. Lucius Malfoy
  14. Kingsley Shacklebolt
  15. Professor McGonagall

GamersUnitedGG Patreon, Pt 2!

Happy Wednesday Players and thank you for tuning into today’s post. So we started a Patreon in October of last year. Patreon allows creators to receive backing from the community to support their creative efforts. In return, the Patrons that pledge will receive a few perks as a thank you for the help and support. I haven’t been using my Patreon or promoting it really at all this year because it was not successful, but now I’m back with a new passion and realization that it wasn’t truly successful because I HAD NO IDEA WHAT I WAS DOING!

 

I’m a fairly impulsive person and I jumped into Patreon without doing my research and really evaluating how this platform could help the blog. So you know what I did yesterday… I researched! I read other creators tier programs and what they were ultimately using Patreon for. I’m now properly able to launch my Patreon and the Tiers I have set are focused on the blog and being a gamer (rather then the writing tiers I originally started with).

So what does this mean…..

I’m ready to re-launch the Patreon page today with a focus on gaming and providing quality blog content. The Tiers are updated and my Goals are clear.

 

This is also a way to show how I come up with the different posts and topics. Right now, any pledge will bring access to my “Inside the Mind of A Villain!” audio where I talk about creating the Memoirs of A Villain posts. This week I will also release a snippet of  my book which is in the process of being published.

Villain

 

Why Start A Patreon?

My intention is to be able to provide more quality posts and grow the blog into a blogging and gaming society. I want gamers to have access to a private Discord server where we can chat and also bounce blogging ideas off of each other. We can also play games together and fully take advantage of the community of gamers just like us.

The Patreon Page is officially Re-Launched and there will be a mention of our Patreon at the bottom of each post going forward. If you would like to help us out on this journey, feel free to donate any amount to the cause.

Luna’s Rankings: Favorite Call of Duty Perks!

Happy Tuesday Players! This past weekend was the Call of Duty World Championships and after watching several of the matches, it got me thinking about my Favorite Call of Duty Perks of all time! Power Up Players for my Perks Ranking List!

Since there are plenty of perks that morph from game to game, this will be a 3 part series where I will rank my favorite perks depending on the Class that I am using. Today’s post will be my ranking on the Perks I MUST have when using an Assault Rifle (AR) Class. Assault Rifles are my preferred guns to use when playing Call of Duty ( or any First Person Shooter FPS). The Perks that I pick for this class help me have the movement of a Sub machine gun player, without having to be all up in the heat of the battle.

 

#5 Scavenger

Scavenger_Perk_Icon_BO3

The Scavenger perk allows you to pick up backpacks of ammo and tacticals from dead bodies on the map. Scavenger is a must have perk when I’m running an AR because I don’t have to worry about running out of ammo. I rarely use my sidearms (unless you count me using my knife lol) so making sure I have plenty of Bullets in my Scar or M16 is vital to my survival.

 

#4 Overkill-

overkill

Overkill is a perk that I’ve always used in Black Ops 2. Overkill allows you to trade in your sidearm for another primary weapon. This class was very useful when I was playing Black Ops 2. I could have a sniper class with a secondary as a sub machine gun in case I needed it for close range combat. My primary use of Overkill was to have my AR the M16 in hand with a side arm of the MSMC sub machine gun.

 

# 3- Stopping Power –

stopping power

Stopping power is a perk that I like to have on an AR class. Depending on the game you are playing, Stopping Power has different uses. My favorite version is the use in MW2 where Stopping Power has increased bullet damage and can assist in destroying player streaks faster like shooting down a Pavelow or Harrier plane.

 

#2 Lightweight –

lightweight

Lightweight is a very useful perk as it allows the player to move faster. I can’t play any class without having lightweight because it’s so slow without it.

 

#1 Sleight of Hand –

Perk_sleight_of_hand

Sleight of Hand is my favorite perk because it lets you reload faster. This perk can be found in just about all COD games, but my favorite version is from the Modern Warfare 2 where unlocking the Pro version of Sleight of Hand gives you Fast ADS (Aim Down Sight). Faster aiming is great because after sprinting I can engage in a battle quickly.

Those are my favorite Call of Duty Perks for my assault rifles. Do you play Call of Duty? Did you watch the Call of Duty World Championships this weekend? What are your favorite perks? Let’s talk FPS!

Overcooked 2: First Impressions!

It’s Monday Funday and I hope you have all enjoyed your weekend! I’m back from my vacation and I have a few weeks worth of posts to write. To start off, I purchased a new game last week and I can’t wait to talk about it! Power Up Players for today’s first impression post for the game Overcooked 2!

Developer: Ghost Town Games

Publisher: Team 17

Release Date: August 7, 2018.

Platform: Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC (not cross platform)

Genre: Simulation

Price: $24.99 on Steam

Overcooked 2 is a chaotic co-op cooking game for 1-4 players in which you must serve a variety of recipes including sushi, pasta, cakes, burgers and burritos to hungry customers in a series of unconventional kitchens.

 

Premise: Overcooked 2 is the sequel to Overcooked where you play as a chef cooking and delivering orders to your patrons. I love a great cooking game and for a few months I have been trying to find an online cooking game to play with my friend Stephanie (Xsanie). She told me about Overcooked 2 and how the game will have an online multiplayer mode, unlike the original game that hosted local multiplayer only modes. This was all i needed to purchase Overcooked 2 on PC!

20180816225150_1

Story: Yes, the game has a story mode that’s actually pretty fun. You are helping the Onion King and his dog Kevin in the Onion Kingdom overthrow the zombie pieces of bread, known as “The UnBread (get it, get it lol).” To defeat these evil dough boys, you are tasked with journeying through the Onion Kingdom and learning recipes to feed to the evil doers. You and a party of up to 4 players journey through different levels, cuisines and outrages challenges to bring back fancy recipes to defeat the Unbread.

20180816195716_1

Replayability:  High replayability for me. There are different game modes other than the Story like Versus or Arcade mode that you can play. In Versus mode, you can play a public or private match where each player will pick a team and play in a 2 v 2 Cook Off! To win you need to make the most money from serving your customers. This game mode is intensified as you can sabotage your competition by taking their pans, stealing their ingredients or even taking their dish to serve to your customers. It’s super fun!

20180816221812_1
One of my favorite maps. Who doesn’t enjoy throwing food across a river rapids?

 

 

Difficulty: Surprisingly, the game gets difficult. There are different scenarios like dodging fire or running on treadmill that makes the simple task of cooking orders, quite difficult. Overcooked does an amazing job at easing you into more difficult recipes with 4 steps and mixing in an environment that’s not ideal to throw you off of your game.

Sights & Sounds:

20180816175847_1

Cartoon Galore! Your chefs are awesome chibi -like characters that come in different races, species and abilities. I love how Overcooked 2 is providing a diverse range of chefs showing representation in the game. One of my favorite characters to use if the Racoon on Wheels! The music is just what you would expect from a time based, simulation. It starts off sweet and happy and increases in tempo the closer you run towards the time limits.

Final Thoughts:

20180816213333_1

Cross platform play. Hopefully DLC in the future. I really enjoy playing games that test my reactions. Overcooked test your reaction time and problem solving skills making it a developmental and fun game for the entire family. A few things that I would love to see is Cross Platform Play! I have friends that have Overcooked 2 on the Switch so it would be awesome if I could play with them on my PC. I’m super excited to see if there will be any DLC in the future. Right now I have been playing the game for maybe 8 hours and there’s still plenty of story left. I can see myself playing and relaxing in Overcooked for a while.

Play & Skip: Fun for the family! Frantic fun! Level difficulties increase. * frazzled easily , need to cooperate with others. If you love a challenge, this is the game for you!

Play

  • Frantic Fun for the entire family!
  • Test your reaction skills
  • If you love a challenge, this is the game for you!

 

Skip:

  • If you get frazzled easily, maybe skip this one
  • Not a fan of cooking games

Thank you for reading today’s First Impressions Post! Have you played Overcooked 2? What games are you currently playing? Let’s talk!

Raft: First Impressions!

Happy Saturday Novas! Vacation is over and I’m super excited to talk about a new survival game that I have been playing. Power Up Players for today’s First Impressions Post on the video game Raft!

Developer: Redbeet Interactive

Publisher: Axolot Games

Release Date: May 23rd, 2018

Platform: PC

Genre: Survival

Price: $19.99 on Steam

 

By yourself or with friends, your mission is to survive an epic oceanic adventure across a perilous sea! Gather debris to survive, expand your raft and be wary of the dangers of the ocean!  -https://raft.itch.io/raft

20180816170156_1

Raft is a unique survival game where you start on a 2 x 2 plank raft with a shark circling you and a plastic hook in hand. To start surviving and building your raft into a respectable home, you will use your plastic hook to grab items floating in the ocean. Listen, I know this game sounds like it’s no fun at all, but playing with my friend Xsanie, we have been having a blast surviving the ocean a la Castaway style! The game is still in development and available for Early Access, but I’m mostly happy with the progress so far.

Game Play-

20180714004736_1

The game play is enjoyable as you build and create a raft to survive. You can make your raft as luxurious (with paint, hammocks and furniture) or as minimalist as you would like. Many items can be found by reef diving in the water, but make sure you have the shark distracted or he will bite you. You can die from the shark, your health going to 0, starvation and not having enough water. I think I really enjoy having to multi-task, protect the raft and make sure that Xsanie and I have food and supplies to survive.

Research-

20180714005137_1

When we found out how to research items in the game, a entirely new experience was created. When the game is started, you have based recipes like how to make a base for the raft, water purifiers and grills. Once you build a Research Table, you can place items like wood, plastic, rope, etc into the table to unlock new crafting recipes. This open ups possibilities for comforts, upgraded grills & purifiers and more.

 

Danger-

20180713230405_1
1st lesson…Stab him with the pointy end!

Jaws is a constant thorn in your side throughout the entire game. I thought I could be smart and build my important items in the middle of the raft, because the shark can bite off pieces of your structure. I was wrong! The shark sometimes comes out of nowhere and bites the middle of the raft!!! How does that even happen? Once the shark bites off a piece of your raft, any item located on the section sinks to the bottom of the ocean. It’s quite annoying actually. Once you have a garden planted you also have to watch out for Seagulls that will fly in and eat everything.

 

Final Thoughts – I really enjoy raft and it’s a great game to play with a friend. Once the raft begins expanding, it’s great to have the extra pair of eyes and hands when the sharks or storm attacks the boat. Raft is currently in Early Access and there have been noticeable glitches like when you can’t see your hook and you miss barrels because of it. Hopefully the games gets an update that improves the experience, but all in all, it was worth the $20 that I spent. I will say it’s a bit tedious after floating for 3 hours so having different modes or even having larger islands that you can explore and stay on for longer periods of time would greatly improve the game.

This is the section of my reviews where I like to list my top reasons to Play or Skip the game.

Play:

  • A unique new survival game
  • Multiplayer Fun
  • Crafting Fun

 

Skip:

  • If you get seasick lol
  • If you prefer survival games where you can explore land and new areas
