    • Why Nintendo's Online and Classic Games Service are a GOOD THING!

      1 week ago


      Yesterday Nintendo announced more about their plans for the Switch's online service and offerings.  So let's break it down a bit and I'll explain why, in the long run, this will be a smart choice by Nintendo.

      At this point in the console market you have to pay to play online, no matter the console.  Playstation 4, Xbox One, and now Switch all force players to pay a monthly (or quarterly/yearly) to connect to their friends.  We knew from the outset that Nintendo was planning on changing from the "Free Online" to a service right at the start, but they will continue to offer free online until the subscription service goes live.

      All in all, a pretty good deal all around.  Nintendo gets to constantly test it's online offerings with first and third party titles until they're confident they are offering a service worth paying for; while players get to enjoy those months of testing for free.  Sort of like a "beta" in a way.

      While I'll admit, the Switch's online service is bare bones and is full of issues, this is truly their first dive into something like this.  Yes they've had online services before, but it was pretty much "per game" and not a whole network.  And, before anyone says it, yes the "chat with friends" feature is pretty garbage and should absolutely be changed.

      So what is Nintendo offering, and why is it "good"?

      A paid for online service means money to make the platform better.  Yes that means that you'll have to pay to play online with the games you've been playing for free...so no more Mario Kart, Splatoon 2, or ARMS online unless you fork over some cash.  But that cash means the online service will become "profitable", and if the service goes down you'll have a better reason to complain.  Think the early days of Xbox Live, they were rough, but now it's easily one of the best services as far as stability is concerned and that didn't just happen overnight.  The act of paying for it will also make Nintendo more accountable for service delays and down times.

      You'll finally have "Save Data Cloud Backup", and honestly I know a lot of people who live and die by their backup saves.  I've never been a stickler for this, as I've only had very few instances of my saves getting deleted or my console being "beyond repair", but you really never can know when something will just stop working.  So having the ability to finally back up saves, -then- send your Switch to Nintendo for repairs, and being able to restore your Switch back to how it was is something absolutely needed in this day and age.  Yes, you have to pay for it, but you have to pay for cloud backups on PSN and XBL as well, so no big shock.  Again, would be great if they had a way to do offline backups, but we're talking specifically about the online services here and not what firmware updates Nintendo should do.

      This one is the only real point of contention for me...the "Nintendo Switch Online App".  It's rubbish.  Everyone knows it's rubbish.  "Want to talk to your friends online while you play?  Get this convoluted app!  Then plug a horrible mess of wires everywhere and you're ready to go!  Just pray your phone battery doesn't die in the middle of your gaming session!"  It's silly, out dated, and I can't honestly see Nintendo keeping this around for the duration of the Switch's life.  But, as I mentioned before, with the service becoming a "paid for" thing, outcrys from unhappy customers will easily sway Nintendo to change this if it starts dipping into profits.

      "Special Offers"!  One of the major problems I have with the Switch's online store right now is the fact that there arn't many sales.  It seems, and this is such a simple thing, that when the online service launches folks who opt into it will be given discounts much like PSN and XBL.  I can't tell you how many times I've picked up new games just because they dropped an addition 20%.  More games at a cheaper price just because you're subscribed to a service?  It's one of my favorite things about XBL and PSN so I'm happy it's coming to Switch.

      Finally, the big one.  Nintendo is turning classic games into something akin to "Xbox Game Pass".  Now, lots of people are upset with the small amount of 20 NES games at launch, but there's some reasoning to this.  These 20 games arn't just the same Virtual Console versions re-released.  You'll be able to play games like Super Mario Bros 3, Ice Climber, Baloon Fight, etc ONLINE with your friends.  Sure, it's not that big of a deal, but think about how this will change in the future.  What happens when we finally get SNES, N64, and potentially Game Cube titles on the platform?  If the concept is to bring "online play" to previously couch co-op only titles that means we could see Smash Bros, Melee, Pokemon Stadium, etc see the same functionality.  Not to mention, these games offered through the service come at no extra cost, unlike Game Pass.

      So what's everyone upset about?  Well Nintendo mentioned that "Virtual Console" is going away.  But that's not really the case.  The branding and such of Virtual Console will be gone, but I suspect that any game that doesn't get the "NOW WITH ONLINE PLAY" functionality added will be simply re-released on the eShop, much like how we're seeing the "ACA NEOGEO" games hit the platform.

      The wrap it up, Nintendo is taking a big step forward in providing a solid online gaming service complete with Netflix like game offerings that will rotate out every so often.  Will it have some major bumps along the way?  Absolutely!  But so did PSN and XBL, and by thoroughly testing, communicating with the players, and of course "more time spent actually developing it", we can expect Nintendo to develop it into something we'll all be 'pretty happy' with.  Because...let's be honest, we're never truly satisfied.

      BONUS ROUND!  Switch's online service is $20 per year (with the NESFlix like service added free), compare that to Xbox Live at $60 per year + $10 per month for Game Pass and PSN at $60 per year and PS Now at $20 per month...Nintendo's is a bargain, even with the (currently) smaller offerings.

      What are your thoughts on Nintendo's online service?  Will you be getting it or just waiting until the platform becomes more viable?  Is there something Nintendo should change about it before launch?  And while we're at it, what HARDWARE and FIRMWARE updates would you like to see happen that could make the online service even better?

    • Infinity War Predictions

      3 weeks ago


      So we're a day away from Infinity War and I wanted to put out my few predictions of the overall end game that Marvel could be going with before I see the movie just to test and see how well I know the MCU's schtick at this point.

      I'm going to mark the rest of this post as SPOILERS, even though I haven't seen the movie yet...but still read at your own risk!  Also, let's keep those comments spoiler free too, ok?  Thanks.







      Scenario 1:

      I call this the "It Ain't Happening" scenario.  The Avengers and Guardians, despite the odds, pull everything together and beat Thanos, but in a last ditch effort, Thanos gets the Time Gem and resets everything (save for his gem count) and prepares for a re-match in the next film.

      This isn't going to happen, at all, no way in hell.  But it'd still be cool to see our heroes actually show off their collective strength and teamwork to pull off a miracle right out of the gate.

      Scenario 2:

      Let's call this one the "New Kids On The Block" scenario.  Very simple.  Despite their best efforts, Thanos wins, everyone dies.  I mean everyone.  No Thor, No Cap, No Iron Man, nobody.  Everyone is gone...except the ones unaccounted for that we've seen:  Captain Marvel and Adam Warlock.  Setting up the next film to introduce an unusual (but not unheard of) team-up for these two to warp reality and bring the heroes back for a re-match.

      Way more possible, but still pretty unlikely.  Adam Warlock was originally going to show up in Infinity War, so him showing up in the next film isn't out of the cards, but still going to say a "Probably Not" to this one.

      Scenario 3:

      Similar to the last one, but let's call this the "Reboot it!" scenario.  Heroes lose, Thanos wins.  Everyone dies.  But that's -our- reality.  In another reality we have a similar set of heroes -WIN-, but Doctor Strange sees that this is only one outcome and the Alternate Universe heroes set out to fix our reality.  

      REALLY cool idea, but NEVER going to happen.  Re-casting or "side-casting" Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, etc as some of their alternate incarnations (Bucky or Falcon as Cap, Jane Foster as Thor, Riri Williams as Iron Heart, Ben Reilly or Gwen Stacy as Scarlet Spider/Spider Woman, etc) would be a ridiculously well kept secret that I don't think even Marvel could get away with at this point. I'd still love to see it though.

      Scenario 4:

      Alright, this is a "Two Sides of the Same Coin" sort of scenario, so let's call this version "Cap's Coin".  Everyone dies except Captain America, Thanos kills everyone and leaves Cap to suffer.  Thanos destroys half the universe, gets what he wants, and takes time to torment the MCU's "Good Boy" with the loss of all his friends, including for a second time, Bucky.  But again, half the universe is still around, and we know Marvel is ramping up Captain Marvel, so we'd launch right into "Part 2" with a Captain America/Captain Marvel team up (maybe Adam Warlock too?).

      I think, of the two "Same Coin" theories, this one is the less likely of them.  Cap has gone through a lot, and while it would be awesome to see him be the last one standing and be the cause of the re-birth of the MCU (which he, in this incarnation, will not be a part of) would be a great sendoff for Steve...but...

      Scenario 5:

      All that leads us here, with the final of my scenarios, which I call "Tony's Coin".  Here we see Thanos kill everyone again, but this time, Tony Stark is the last one standing.  Thanos lets him live because of...reasons?  Maybe they argue and it's punishment, maybe he gets lucky and isn't part of half the universe that's destroyed, or maybe he (or anyone) makes a deal with Thanos to save one hero from destruction and Thanos just chooses Tony out of spite (these could also be possible for the "Cap's Coin" scenario).  No matter the outcome, the result stays the same just with a hero swap, in "Part 2" we'd have Iron Man teaming up with Captain Marvel (still have some hopes for Adam Warlock to show up, but that's a long shot) to save the MCU.

      Iron Man started the MCU, he'll be the one the end it...well, this part anyway.  While Captain America makes a logical choice here too, Tony is my bet.  He's taken to mentoring Peter, dealt with his demons, and even went to "war" against his fellow heroes.  He's done it all and is still standing.  So to see him kneel to Thanos and have his ability to save anyone taken away in the last moments would be an incredible finale to this "Part 1".

      Not to mention Tony Stark and Carol Danvers have a bit of a history in the comics, and having this relationship be the bridge of this era of MCU into the next, with Carol taking over Tony's role as the leader would be pretty appropriate since she's lead more than a couple variations of "Avengers" in her time.

      All in all, "Tony's Coin" is my bet.  We've got the most invested in him, screen-time wise, but it really is a toss up between "Cap's Coin" and "Tony's Coin" for me, with how Marvel makes their movies.

      Those are my theories, I have a few others, but these are my "Most Likely" of them because of how they'd make sense in the MCU.

      Either way, I'll see you all on the otherside after we've all seen Infinity War!

    • Jessica Jones (Season 2) -Spoilers-

      2 months ago


      So I've been watching Jessica Jones Season 2, after absolutely loving the first season when it came out, and I can't put my finger on an exact "point" but somewhere along the line in Season 2 I stopped having fun or enjoying the series.


      I recently finished "AKA Three Lives and Counting", the 3rd to last episode, and found the performances from most of the cast to be some of the best this season, but even so a lot of the actual storytelling fell very flat.

      This season really has no primary antagonist and is leaning more on the concept of gray-areas, asking questions like "What does it mean to be a hero?" and "What are you willing to do for your loved ones/the safety of others?" but it never goes deep enough into those questions to actually feel meaningful.

      Before I go further I want to say that Krysten Ritter and Eka Darville have had some AMAZING performances this season, bringing a lot more heart to each of their characters.

      That said, the choices that Jessica, Trish, Jeri, Alisa, and Karl make throughout this season are mindboggling.  A lot of their reasoning seems to be "BECAUSE" rather than giving actual purpose to their actions, or at least enough of a purpose to suspend disbelief.

      Trish in particular has been a nagging point to me this season.  After finding her to be a great "side-kick" and necessary point to Jessica's growth and the overall plot of Season 1, she seems like she's just "being an asshole to be an asshole" this time around.

      Now, I get that they are trying to work their way towards re-introducing her as "Hellcat", more than likely in Season 3, but the way they went about doing it feels like we're going to be seeing her as an Anti-Hero rather than her actual true heroic attitude from the comics.  Which is -totally fine- if it's explained well, but so far she seems to just have Super-Power Envy, and that's kind of lazy.

      And that's not even mentioning the introduction, characterization, and motivations of Alisa Jones.  Seeing her brought back from the dead, her powers, her breakdowns, etc.  Especially in the second half of the season...it all feels very "Why?!" with no true reasoning for anything.

      All in all, I'm not finished with the series yet, still two episodes left...but I have a feeling that unless Season 3 hooks me within the first few episodes, I'll be dropping the Netflix Marvel Universe out of just being bored by lazy plot points and annoyed by weird and not well explained character motivations.

      Fingers crossed that Freeform's Cloak & Dagger will reignite my love for the MCU's small screen heroes.  I have high hopes for it!

      What are your thoughts on the Small Screen MCU and it's characters?  Is Iron Fist still the weakest link?  Should the characters be teaming up more after The Defenders or are these "stand alone seasons" still the best way to go?

    • Busy, busy, busy...

      3 months ago


      So we're already almost 2 full months into 2018 and it's already a whirlwind!  Between work, stuff at home, and tons of personal side-projects, I've been probably keeping myself a bit "too busy".

      I'm re-writing a comic/animated series concept I wrote over 10 years ago, updating it a bit and re-working some details.

      I streamed the original Legend of Zelda to completion in order to get footage for an upcoming personal project.

      I did a tease announcement of a VLOG series that will deal with issues like mental health, personal issues, dealing with stress, etc.

      Attempted to get some low-key Voice Over roles in a couple projects I saw asking for auditions.

      I'm in the process of writing a (live-action) show concept that came to me in a dream, and I'm really hyped about.  Though the idea is still in a very early "series of stickynotes on a wall" phase.

      Amidst all that, the usual stuff continues!  The Know videos, MPG videos, trying to maintain a regular Twitch streaming schedule, and day-to-day life stuff.

      I'm putting in a good effort for 2018, doing my best to make this year, -my year-.

      I hope you're all doing your best for 2018 as well, I would love to hear about the projects you may be working on, books you are reading, games you are playing, etc!

    • My 6 Month HRT Anniversary & Dealing With Negative Thoughts/Self Hate

      8 months ago


      Last week I posted that I hit my 6 Month HRT anniversary!  This was also the first time I told anyone, aside from my partner and some close friends, that I had even been on HRT.

      Amidst the last 6 months I've been thinking a lot about life, who I am, who I was, and my fight with constant depression.  Some of this I've already posted on twitter, but I'm taking some time to add a bit more to it, while also integrating something else I recently talked about too.

      I spend a good deal of time feeling down on myself about things I can't change.  I feel most people do that too. I worry so much that sometimes it can be incredibly debilitating and stop me from being able to function properly.

      Thinking so much about something we did/didn't do, something we said/didn't say...I spend a lot of time being down on myself with regret and thinking about any hurt I may have caused, to others, to myself, etc.  Of course, knowing what I know now, there are so many things I'd do differently. 

      Its an assumption but I feel like most people have these thoughts. Thinking the hurt they feel now is because of who they were before or what they did long ago.  It can become a crippling depression and make things so much worse.

      Now, I think what is most important is what you do now, what you learned, and doing your best to be a better person.  Living life thinking "I wish I didn't say/do that" or "I wish I did say/do this" does more harm than good.   

      If you are being a better person now, that's what matters most.  We all wish we could have been better, so let's all be better now.

      I feel it's important for me to say I'm sorry for my mistakes and I forgive you for yours, the past is gone, we are who we are now and nothing less.

      With the constant negative thoughts, I look at everything I've done, been through, said, and experienced and it sometimes sends me spiraling.

      I take a look at my professional career and wonder if things will work out, and over a decade of work later I still feel I’ve made no progress and continue to struggle to find any proper “place”.

      Even day to day issues can easily be just as overwhelming as larger problems and often get me stopped in my tracks for longer than they should and the constant struggle I’ve had to deal with concerning my gender identity has been something that caused me no end of discomfort and heartbreak.

      After coming out as trans, I saw so many people who once supported me on the sidelines suddenly abandon and ridicule me. I got, and still get, daily messages of hate. Some more mild, refusing to use proper pronouns because I’m “not a real woman”. Some filled with rage saying I should “kill myself” and refusing to see me as anything other than a freak who should be “dealt with”.  Honestly, part of me feels like all those hurtful and mean messages, I deserve them for one reason or another.

      Being bullied or abused isn't restricted to one certain type of experience, and because of this, you may become someone you didn't want to be.  Acting in ways you don't agree with, taking your aggression and frustrations out in unhealthy ways, both towards others and yourself.  Words hurt just as much as physical pain, and in some cases can be even more harmful.

      Life is a struggle for everyone, sometimes it gets easier, and sometimes it seems impossible to fix. Often times my experiences have left me with life and my goals feeling more towards “impossible”, with the constant whispers to give up and stop trying ringing in my ears. And these experiences arn’t limited to my struggles towards coming out.

      Those feelings did become more prevalent ever since I came out publicly. My work, less important. My opinions, less valid. My existence, null and void. The world, and my options in life, became smaller and things and opportunities that were “available” to me became completely inaccessible.  However, I've had a constant struggle with being accepted by others, family, friends, etc, to the point of almost losing myself and who I was and who I desperately wanted to grow up to become.

      So far, 2017 has been one of the most difficult times in my life, which is saying something. But one major good thing happened.

      On March 4th, 2017, I took my first steps towards transitioning. Now I’m officially 6 months in on Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), and I’m slowly feeling less at odds with myself.

      So with this major step forward, I’m going to keep trying, I’ll keep working hard, and I’ll continue to do my best to find my place. Be it professional, in day to day life, with new ventures, or as I continue my journey towards transitioning, I hope I’ll have support from all of you. 

      Because honestly, without the support of my loving partner, friends, coworkers, fans, and this community that is being slowly built around me, things easily seem impossible.

      Thank you for accepting me, thank you to everyone who has been kind to me, dealing with trauma isn't easy, and I'm happier that I've finally been able to process things that happened to me before in healthier ways.

      Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue- Jan 24th - PS4

      Giving longtime Kingdom Hearts fans something new to chew on while they wait for Kingdom Hearts 3, 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue combines Dream Drop Distance with two new experiences!  

      First off, Dream Drop Distance has been remastered in HD and features a much faster battler experience than in previous incarnations of the franchise!

      The second addition is a new movie titled Kingdom Hearts X Back Cover.  This tells the story of the “Foretellers”, and links earlier parts in the series to more recent revelations.  These story points were briefly explored in the mobile only game Kingdom Hearts Unchained X.

      The final experience in Final Chapter Prologue is the part to get the most excited about!  Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep - A Fragmentary Passage is a brand new story featuring Aqua and takes place after the events of Birth By Sleep.  This brand new game links to Kingdom Hearts 3 directly and offers fans of the series a taste of what KH3 will be like!

      Tongue in cheek humor, fictionalized versions of Tokyo's Kabukicho Shinjuku Golden Gai areas and Osaka's Dotonbori areas, a deep character customization and growth system, as well as a ton of minigames, Yakuza 0 has tons to offer.

      The true survival horror has returned yet again!  The seventh installment in the main series offers some very different gameplay and huge changes to the series as a whole.

      Appropriately, RE7 is set in 2017, four years after the events of Resident Evil 6.  While this game is indeed set in the same universe as the other Resident Evil games and their effects are felt on the world, RE7’s events are not directly tied to any other in the series.  This makes it a great starting point for those who are not familiar with the series.

      Hey man, just wanted to say - Your little post about best games of 2015 is probably what led me to succumb to my friend's persistence and try Undertale.


      And what an experience that was.


      I'll go on and say it - Easily one of the very best singleplayer games ever conceived, and I don't say that lightly. I've played and loved Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy VI & IX, Half-Life, Portal, Fallout, and so on.

      I almost feel like a more whole person for it or something. Been a long-ass time since I've really felt so strongly for NPCs in a video game, but I remember the feeling from when I was a kid, and this was like that but far more intense than even back then.

      You can see my journal if you'd like to see a little gameplay from it I put out.

      So yeah, thanks for that and stuff.

      Hey, I was watching Off Topic and in fairness, I started college at age 13 and now I have a masters degree and work for the government. I would rather work for Achievement Hunter.

      Hey Kdin, I think I might have a solution for your coffee creamer issue (not sure it would work though). What about using coffee flavored ice cream, just a little bit of it? It would be similar to creamer, right?

      Oi Kdin, I kind of wish you guys would release the let's builds as a podcast on iTunes, just audio. Wouldn't mind hearing it while walking around.

      I didn't think about the ads and what not though, so maybe a dumb idea. Have a good one

      Kdin, I just have to say I can't stop watching the let's builds. I not quite sure how, but somehow you, Matt, Jeremy,and Lindsay have chemistry that is so great the only way I can explain it is by comparing it to the relationship between Joel and Adam, but a little more chaotic like team lads. Honestly, the two shows I look forward to every week are Let's Build and Rage Quit/Play Pals. Anyways, I just wanted to commend you on working your a** off and keeping me and countless others entertained.

      Hi Kdin! I just watched the latest Countdown, and it was really cool to see that topic, considering all the mess going on with "#gamergate" (pfft), Anita Sarkeesian, and Zoe Quinn. I haven't heard of/played a few of these games, but I noticed that the ones I have played seem to be lady characters who A. Have names and B. Have backstories not pertaining directly to men.

      Great list Kdin, even if you weren't going for that in the first place! :)

      Hey Kdin, I was wondering if you would release to the public/give to me a raw version of all 6 audio and video tracks of a past or previous lets play. The reason being is I want to work at of have a very similar job to what you guys do at achievement hunter and figured video editing to be a big part of it. I'm not asking for some sort of exclusive content rather something I can practice with for the time being. please reply and thanks. friendlypardox@aol.com

      Hey Kdin, as part of being a community member who is aspiring to one day work in AH, I'm eager to try and prove myself. I was wondering if you had any small not - so - important videos that I could edit for you guys? Please let me know if you're down for that.

      Are you ever going to be in the Let's Plays?

  • Questions answered by Kdin

    The same as my SuperHERO super power!

    The ability to use all the abilities!

    Multipurpose Gaming was conceived to stand on its own.

    While we're totally up for doing collaborative work, our goal is to create a unique identity for our content and grow it organically.

    While we're sure there is some crossover from the LPN's fanbase, we're also very keen on growing outside of that community and reaching new audiences!

    Why are you leaving?

    | Asked by: SeanTFlynn 2 years ago

    I'm not, I'm just changing departments!

    I'll still be around, I'll just be over at The Know!

    Layers of Fear is "One Chapter Per Recording" just to make the series shorter.

    Pokemon and Undertale are actually done the same way. "Accomplish something important, and find a good stopping point".

    Undertale's episodes are generally about 20 minutes each because of how dialogue heavy some things are.

    But on average, despite the Mt. Moon episode, Undertale and Pokemon are about the same length in episode time.

    More than likely! We're also planning on doing Shovel Knight's DLC, Plague of Shadows. But we're going to take a break from Outlast and Shovel Knight for a little bit and do some different stuff to give people some variety!

    Billy West, Douglas Adams, Maurice LaMarche, Tress MacNeille, George Carlin, Richard Pryor, Betty White, and the entire writing/creative staff for Futurama (Matt Groening, David X. Cohen, Eric Kaplan, Claudia Katz, Ken Keeler, etc).

    To name a few.

    Trevor, Lindsay, and I have a pretty good synergy. Aside from that, probably Geoff.

    I'm beyond behind on both series.

    Overall I've enjoyed TWD's first few seasons more so than GoT, but again, I am stuck at Season 3 of both.

    I use the Elgato both in office and on my personal capture setup at home too, so yes I'd absolutely recommend it!

    Believe it or not, felt pretty normal, there wasn't a huge change that most people would assume there would be.

    Haven't gotten around to playing it yet, but I've heard great things and I do own it!

    We're toying around with the idea of more story driven content, we have a few we'd like to do, but no solid "YES" or "NO" on any just yet!

    Haven't started Winter 2016's season yet, still catching up on all the things I missed from 2015! But I'm always up for suggestions!

    Our office is always busy!

    For Multipurpose Gaming it varies, if we're really feeling it, then the recording session can go for 2+ Hours.

    But on average, we try to record for at least 1 hour per recording!
