Over the last five years video games based off of movies have become scarce. The reason behind this is probably due to the lackluster and rushed production of these titles. The games were usually poorly made and would be similar to the movie, but with many glitches and lack of side quests video game movies were a one trick pony. Movie based video games usually cost $60 dollars for the same story that their movie counterpart provided.

Out of all the video game titles based off of movies, one brand has continued to make great games; that brand is owned by Lego and they have created popular games for such popular series such as: Harry Potter, Batman, The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and the Avengers. So with their success with these popular franchises why no create more games for other popular series. Lego is known for making toy sets for popular series.

The Hunger Games franchise has had recent success in theaters after having great success as a popular book series, so why not a video game? The Hunger Games movies have been a great success due to the superb acting of Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Josh Hutcherson, and Woody Harrelson and the emotion story set in a dystopian world. Although fans of the series would love to see a realistic 3D model of the game be produced, the game itself would come up short for the same reason as the other video games based off of movies. The best possible version of a Hunger Games game that the public could receive is a Lego produced Hunger Games.

Fans of the Hunger Games series have been able to produce realistic 3D models of the Cornacopia and different buildings in Panem. So if random people can create amazing 3D models, why can’t a game studio. Hopefully we will see Lego create Lego Hunger Games and release it within the next two years. Potentially bring in the voice actors from the movies to supply voices for the game. The Lego Hunger Games video game should include: The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mocking Jay.

What do you think, should a game studio create a Hunger Games video game? Way in down in the comment section below. Maybe we will see it released on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Wii-U, and PC. Currently there is a Hunger Games card game, but that doesn’t seem good enough.

League of Legends Party Rewards Glitched http://www.gamersbliss.com/2015/03/03/league-legends-party-rewards-glitched/ http://www.gamersbliss.com/2015/03/03/league-legends-party-rewards-glitched/#comments Tue, 03 Mar 2015 08:20:21 +0000 http://www.gamersbliss.com/?p=23567 Over the last few weeks, the League of Legends community has been abuzz after Riot Games implemented a party rewards bonus on their beta server.

Over the last few weeks, the League of Legends community has been abuzz after Riot Games implemented a party rewards bonus on their beta server. The Party Rewards system is one way Riot Games is attempting to make the League of Legends community a fun playable environment with the promise of bonus I.P (in-game currency) if summoners (players) played with their friends. On the League of Legends website, Riot Games had stated that players who played on Summoners Rift would receive a higher amount of bonus IP than their counterparts on Twisted Treeline or Howling Abyss.

League of Legends Party Rewards was supposed to give players up to 16 times their won IP. Allegedly solo players would not be eligible for Party Rewards. Parties of two would be eligible for four times bonus IP. Parties of three would be eligible for six times the bonus IP. Parties of four could receive up to eight times IP and could find another random player to play with. The final bonus was supposed to give up to 16 times IP. However something must have gone horribly wrong with the programming, since it started the Party wards system has malfunctioned and is only granting players at most 16 bonus IP. Yes the IP builds up over time, but the program seems to be coming up a little short. The Party Rewards program is in beta on the public server and is supposed to run for two weeks before temporarily coming down for repairs.

Multiplier

Hopefully Riot Games will fix the Party Reward system on League of Legends and grant players additional IP like they advertised. In order to see if it was just Summoners Rift was glitched, we played matches on the other maps with other variations of party members. At most all we earned was an additional 16 IP. Wednesday is usually when game updates coming in so we will have to wait and see whether or not Riot Games fixes this little bug.

Hey Blissers! So March is finally here meaning that spring is right around the corner. For everyone in the northern hemisphere that is a sigh of relief knowing that the snow is almost gone. In an attempt to boost morale of all the citizens trapped in the snow, Microsoft decided to grant Xbox Live Gold members two games with warm climates. March’s Game with Gold features three newer titles with hopes of rejuvenating the gaming community. All three of these titles are games that were released in 2013, so they are somewhat newer.

For Xbox 360 users, the Games with Gold program will be giving away Tomb Raider (2013) and BioShock Infinite. These two titles are both critically acclaimed and are being given to Xbox Live gold members for free. Altogether the three titles would cost around $90.00 if purchased through the marketplace.

Tomb Raider is currently available on the Xbox marketplace and will be available until March 15th. Tomb Raider (2013) is considered one of the best Tomb Raider games of all time. The game provide beautiful scenery with intense story to provide an impressive overall game.

Tomb Raider - Lara Croft - Reboot Screens

Then taking Tomb Raiders place is BioShock Infinite which will be available from March 16th until March 31st. BioShock Infinite takes place amongst the clouds and provides players with alternate reality and a complex story with a twist ending. BioShock Infinite is definitely worth playing even if it is a short game.

BioShock Infinite

Xbox One users have no reason to feel left out! Although they are not receiving titles that are critically acclaimed, they are still receiving a fun game called Rayman:Legends which will be available for Xbox One users for the month of March(1st to 31st). Xbox 360 users will be able to save Rayman Legends purchase on their download history encase the Xbox 360 user upgrades to an Xbox One and wants games to play.

RaymanLegendsBoxArt

Either way the month of March seems to be a good month for Xbox Gamers and it is rumored that April’s Games with Gold offer will be two times better offering four games through the Games with Gold Program. Hopefully everyone enjoys and remember in order to be eligible for the Games with Gold Program you must be an Xbox Live Gold member.

Hey Blissers! Are you a competitive gamer who sometimes get frustrated while playing video games? Do you stay inside often to game and neglect working out your body or mind? Do you occasionally get angry and lose your temper resulting in self-injury or the breaking of items? Do you want to turn your frustration into something constructive? Well Blissers we may have a solution for you!

Gaming can be frustrating, but instead of continuing to play and let the anger build up, try taking a break and get in shape. By taking a break you allow yourself time to cool off and work out your body in a constructive way. The body and mind need to be worked out or else they will become weak.

Here is one suggestion we at gamersbliss.com recommend depending on what you may be lacking.

  • Loss a game -20 push ups
  • Win a game -10 push ups
  • Team falsely accuses you of being the reason for the loss – 10 sit ups
  • If you are the reason for the loss – 20 sit ups
  • A teammate did something annoying – 15 squats
  • Each death – 3 bicycle crunches for each death
  • Someone blames lag for dying  – 10 leg raises for each person
  • Someone loses using something that is considered strong, Ex: A champion or Gun – 10 Tricep Dips
  • Foreigners/ children in Game – 10 Lunges
  • If you were rude to a teammate –  5 minute Run in place
  • Leaving the game or A.F.K. -ing – 15 normal crunches

After your workout is done, take a break to cool off by reading; whether it is a book, magazine, gaming article, or even your social media news feed, give your mind a workout.

These workouts should not only improve your mode and get your body in shape, but also reinforce good decisions and give your body an adequate work out. Maybe they will even save your gaming equipment.

If you want more complex push ups, check out these eight alternative versions at:

Best wishes and good health for everyone.

Hey Blissers! If you have not already heard the news, a spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie is being developed by former Rare employees. The new studio in charge of the Banjo-Kazooie successor is Playtonic Games. Current at Playtonic Games is former staff members Chris Sutherland. Gavin Price, Steven Hurst, Jens Restemeier, Steve Mayles and Mark Stevenson. Playtonic announced today that Grant Kirkhope, David Wise, and Steve Burke will be composing music for project Ukulele.

“We’ve got the bloke who programmed Donkey Kong Country, the character designer behind Banjo and Kazooie, and the artist who made your console fit to burst with lavish environments across a decade’s worth of adventure games,” stated http://www.playtonicgames.com/

Currently they are developing a project code-named “Project Ukulele.” with very little know about it other than they plan on living up to and exceeding expectations. On the Playtonic Games website  a teaser image was released, with only piercing eyes shinning threw a bush. If you compare the colors of these eyes to the protagonists of Banjo-Kazooie the colors match up.

Banjo teaser

Anything that these six gentleman work on will most likely succeed, but we are excited to see what they produce. Although Microsoft owns Rare franchises, the staff at Playtonic Games would like to be able to work with Nintendo and  publish games to the Wii U as well Xbox One and PS4.

Have you ever had the desire to antagonize you foes or even your friends? Have you ever had the urge to manage you opponents team and try to exploit their characters weakness for your own personal gain? Well if you answered yes to the first one you are in luck, as for the second question better luck next time!

Nemesis Draft is the brand new game mode that allows you to pick your opponents champions and just hope that they will not repay your decisions with their own kindness. Usually in draft mode players seek to ban champions that are over powered; however  in Nemesis Draft the goal is to ban champions that you do not want to play.

Occasionally a few of the stronger champions sneak through, but if they do the team does not sway in their favor. The most common team comps being drafted are: Supports, Tanks, AP, or Marksman. The best way to draft is to draft not based off of role but rather synergy. If a team composition does not synergize properly, than it makes it more difficult to work together in-order to win the game. Below is a video, we took involving the drafting process in Nemesis Draft. Nemesis Draft can be a lot of fun with your friends but by yourself it can make enemies out of your allies. Nemesis Draft allows players to experience champions they may have not played otherwise.

Hey Blissers! Have you ever dreamed of taking out your enemies or just getting paid for taking out the “Bad Guys”? Well then you’d be considering the line of work of a Hitman. However being a Hitman is not as easy as it seems. So why not live out your fantasies by watching a movie about a Hitman who extraordinary.

A man who has been genetically altered and trained to be a killer since his childhood. Nothing stands in the way of Agent 47 and his target, not even innocent bi-standards. Actually innocent bi-standards provide the perfect disguise whether it’s a man in uniform or the annoying camera man from channel six news. Remember whatever you do, do not bring anything into the room that could potentially kill you because if he can use it, he will to ensure your death. If you think you are safe or if you think he is trapped you are wrong! Imagine you are playing chess and you believe you are thinking 3 moves ahead. Well Agent 47 is another 10 moves ahead of you.

The last time Hollywood attempted to create a Hitman movie it cast actors that were barely known and had a plot that did not feel like a Hitman Setting. It featured Agent 47 attempting to save a young woman’s life, which at the time was not realistic. However the 2007 Hitman movie would predict the way the Hitman franchise would go towards in Hitman Absolution. Ironically the movie would turn out the same way as Hitman Absolution failing in the eyes of its fans. The Hitman movie reboot will release on August 28th, 2015 and will star Zachary Quinto (Sylar from Heroes/ Spock from Star Trek) and Rupert Friend (Homeland). The trailer for this movie not only looks awesome, but seems to go back to the Hitman franchise right after Hitman: Blood Money.

If you had to choose one company to appear at E3 this year who would you want it to be? Most gamers would have a top 3 with Valve taking the number one spot followed by Bethesda and coming in at 3rd would be Rockstar. Well Genie is granting one of every gamers wish come true with Bethesda announcing that they will be holding their first ever E3 showcase this year.

E3 2015 will take place at the Los Angeles Convention Center from June 16th to 18th. At the moment no titles have been announced by Bethesda for their E3 lineup, but there is speculation that Fallout 4 will have its long-awaited debut. Multiple events occurred over the last few years but this year has seen some major clues or teasers. The first clue from over the last year was Bethesda filing a trademark for Fallout 4 after the fake Fallout 4 counter drew massive fan attention. Two years ago Fallout 3’s Three Dog aka Erik Todd Dellums stated, “There may be more of the Dog coming! Fingers crossed!”

Currently Bethesda has two titles that still have yet to have release dates announced, but could we hear the announcement of Battlecry or even Doom 4. These are just two titles that could be announced. Could we see the announcement of Dishonored 2, Rage 2, Brink 2, Prey 2, Fallout 4, or even a new Elder Scrolls title besides Elder Scrolls Online. Either way, Bethesda has a surprise up their sleeve that will leave the audience shocked and awed. Here is your invitation to Bethesda’s press conference.

Hey Blissers! After an amazing 2014 League of Legends season and the largest E-Sports tournament to date. Riot Games will be holding their next championship tournament in Europe. The 2015 League world championship will take place in October; it has been four years since the League of Legends’ world championships have been last held in Europe. The tournament was last held in Sweden, however this years League World Championship will take place at multiple venues for each round of the tournament.

The last time the League World Championship was held in Europe it amassed 1.6 million viewers watching the live stream for the whole event and had at most 210,000 viewers watching at one time during the final matches. During this years World Championship, over 27 million people watched the tournament, with over 11 million people watching at one time.

Originally the prize money was a mere $50,000 going to the 2011 winner Fnatic. The 2014 season provided the winners Samsung Galaxy White one million dollars in prize money. This does not include sponsor ships or other subscriptions. With the prize pool only getting bigger year to year, could the 2015 season provide the winner with over five millions dollars.

Riot Games will make sure that the 2015 League of Legends world championship will be bigger and better than the one before, but what can top Imagine Dragons performing in a filled soccer arena.

The ride will be exciting, but this years Worlds will be amazing! So cheer on your favorite LCS teams and see if they make it to the grand stage this year.

Last month, Bethesda announced that the Elder Scrolls Online would become free to play rather than the community having to pay fourteen dollars and ninety-nine cents ($14.99) a month for a subscription. After this news broke, fans of the Elder Scrolls franchise went out and purchased the game just to discover that  Elder Scrolls Online would not be free to play until March 17th.

The Elder Scrolls Online is still being sold for $59.99, Bethesda’s announcement was not a surprise due to the lack of membership on PCs and Macs. The computer version of Elder Scrolls Online will now become The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited. The Elder Scrolls Online releases for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on June 9th, and will be called The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited as well. The console version of the game will receive the new in-game Crown Store, which offers players the convenience of customizing items. A premium membership will be available called ESO Plus™, in which players will receive monthly in-game benefits and a monthly allotment of crowns to help players purchase more items and shop til their heart is content.

The Elder Scrolls Online looks like it will be a lot of fun on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and we here at gamersbliss.com are excited to see how it turns out. Make sure to stop by between now and January for more news on The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited.
