Where To Order Nintendo Switch OLED Model in Kuwait

This is the only console that I am reluctant to buy because I have a regular switch model. The reason I am reluctant is because I play mostly on TV, so the screen resolution won’t matter. It would have mattered a lot back when I was a kid when I didn’t have my own TV. I still believe that Nintendo Switch is one of the best consoles of all time.

To order through one of the local stores in Kuwait. It will be available at the following stores in Kuwait:-

Nintendo Switch OLED:-

Xcite (White, Neon)

Best Electronics (White, Neon)

Blink (White, Neon)

Game Store (White, Neon)

Geekay (White, Neon)

Level Up (White, Neon)

Pre-Order a Game or Wait For 1-2 Years After Release

My friends and I had a discussion about pre-ordering a game or waiting for a year after release. I personally pre order games all the time. I order both physical when it comes to collector’s edition and digital through Playstation Store. The reason I pre order physical games is because getting the collector’s edition at official price will be impossible later on, especially for Playstation popular exclusives. For the digital pre-orders, I like to get the pre-order bonuses, such as a weapon or so. I also like to play the game right away instead of waiting for sometime. Some of my friends wait for a year or two after release, and in my opinion it has pros and cons. The pros is that they get the game at a much lower price where they save 50-75% from the original price and it might include all DLCs. The game will also be almost bug free, because by that time there aren’t any more patches to fix any bugs. The cons will be, they miss out on all the discussions about the game, because when we meet we talk about the game. For me I feel waiting a year or two is the better option, but I personally can’t do it and I always like to play the game right away.

Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis on Xbox Series S | X

I can’t believe that I am playing on Xbox more than Playstation these days. The only reason I play Xbox is because PSO2 / PSO2 New Genesis. I am enjoying the game a lot even though it is so laggy. The game is much smoother than the previous one in terms of gameplay. PSO2 game is the type of game where I don’t have to think at all, I lay on the sofa and press the controller buttons without thinking. This is more of a game I play when I am really bored. I did pre-order Ratchet & Clank on PS5 but I still didn’t play it. I never played the previous ones, but I decided to give this one a shot. I really enjoy playing Playstation Exclusives, and until now Game Pass didn’t resonate with me. I enjoy playing the AAA games made by Playstation Studios.

My games wish list is the following

  • God of War Ragnarok
  • Horizon Forbidden West
  • Ghost of Tsushima 2
  • Spider Man 2
  • Red Dead Redemption 3

This is a very interesting generation and I can’t wait for the AAA releases this year.

 

Did Xbox Series S Already Won This Generation Vs Playstation 5 (PS5)

Now we all know the official prices of PS5 and Xbox. Xbox Series X is priced at $499.99 and Xbox Series S is priced at $299.99. Playstation 5 is priced at $499.99 matching Xbox Series X and Playstation 5 Digital edition is priced at $399.99. A lot of my friends said that Microsoft won the console war already and the reason is Xbox Series S price and Xbox Game Pass. Xbox Series S is surprisingly inexpensive and a lot of people can afford it. Some people will see that it is $100 cheaper than Playstation 5 Digital edition, so it is easier for them to make a decision. Xbox Game Pass is becoming really impressive, something that Sony Playstation Now wasn’t successful with. I am a subscriber of Playstation Now and I can’t play games via streaming. I have to download the game in order to play, and most games I can’t even download. The library isn’t that great as well, it is very limited. Playstation should consolidate Playstation Plus and Playstation Now and make them one platform. If Xbox Game Pass get more subscribers, they will be the Netflix of gaming, which is the thing that no one was able to achieve so far.

PS4 Pro Fan Noise Fix When Cleaning Out Doesn’t Solve The Problem

When I bought Red Dead Redemption 2, I really couldn’t go beyond Chapter 1 because of my PS4 Pro fan noise. The fan noise was so high that I can’t focus at all even with the volume being high. When I searched online, most of the solutions were about cleaning the PS4 Pro by using a compressed air can and removing the dust. I went and tried that solution and it never worked. The issue was more complexed than that, so when I asked around. I was told that the first model of PS4 Pro has this common problem of fan noise. The reason is because the thermal paste dries up fast with the first model. The fix is simply removing and cleaning the dried thermal paste, and apply new one. The noise dropped by 60% and since then I started playing on my PS4 Pro. There are tons of guides that shows you how to replace the thermal paste on PS4 Pro. Check them out and try this solution if cleaning out doesn’t fix the issue.

Extremely High Demand For Nintendo Switch in Kuwait That Caused Increase in Prices

There is so much demand for video game consoles during the corona crisis. The highest demand is for Nintendo Switch and then Playstation 4. I am so surprised that Nintendo switch cost about $300 which is around 92 KD before the crisis. Now the world wide stock of Nintendo Switch is so low that caused increase in prices due to demand. Before the corona crisis, Nintendo Switch was selling for 115 KD in Kuwait, and sometimes 106 KD + a game. Now the cheapest price I found was 145 KD at AlFuhod and the most expensive is 169.9 at Xcite. I asked my friends who own stores in Rehab Comples about the reason that Nintendo Switch is selling out. They said parents need to keep their kids quite at this time since they are spending time with them much more than ever. Playstation 4 was at the end of cycle so it isn’t worth the investment right now and Playstation 5 is releasing at the end of the year.

Where To Order Playstation 5 (PS5) in Kuwait

The release of Sony Playstation 5 (PS5) this year will be totally different than previous years, because Sony PS5 will release globally at the same time. Now the big question is where to pre-order PS5 in Kuwait. I honestly don’t want to pay above market prices, which is something I used to do a lot back in the day. Going to Rehab Complex and seeing prices where they switch the original price in $ to KWD and still buy the product will never happen again. The first week of release usually have the highest prices then it drops gradually.

5 Best Video Games of All Time That Completely Changed My Life

I have been playing video games since the early 90’s and I played lots of video games. From all the games I played, 5 I considered the best video games of all time and that completely changed my life. I remember I was so in love with each of these games, and it was a total different experience back then. Since I played The Last of Us, I didn’t get that same feeling again. Even The Last of Us, that feeling was much less than the other four games in the list. I can’t wait for the next game that will give me the same exact feeling where it is a complete game changer.


1- Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time (N64): This is my favorite game of all time and Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time was the perfect game of all time. The story, gameplay, music, and bosses were so perfect. I enjoyed going back and forth as a kid and adult in the game. Also the mini games were so amazing using the sling shot and shooting arrows to have more capacity. I completed Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time more than 7 times.

 

2- Phantasy Star Online (Sega Dreamcast): PSO was the first online game I played back in 2001. I used to play with my brother and friends and I made lots of friends online. The best part of the game when I get a rare weapon and go check it out.

3- Pokemon Red & Blue (Nintendo Game Boy): Pokemon Blue was of the best games ever, especially when I figured out that I can catch Pokemons using a Pokeball. I enjoyed the experience so much that we used to trade Pokemons with friends. The best part was catching the legendary birds and Mew Two.

4- Metal Gear Solid (PS1): Kojima delivered a total new experience with Metal Gear Solid and I still think that it was the best Metal Gear ever. I really wish they do a remake for PS4 or PS5. I will buy it again for sure. Back then it was something totally new when you sneak and hide from enemies.

5- The Last of Us (PS3): I played The Last of Us when it was first released, and mainly the story telling and way of fighting was so impressive. I pre ordered The Last of Us 2 a long time ago, and have been waiting to play it since they announced the game.

These are the 5 main video games that changed my life, so share yours with me in the comment section.

 

 

Waiting for Phantasy Star Online 2 to Be Released on PS4 But For Now Will Play on PC

Phantasy Star Online (PSO) was of very few games that completely changed my life back when it was released. The first time I played PSO was on Sega Dreamcast back in 2001. It completely changed my life and it was my favorite game for few years since I played it. I remember I used to play with my brother and friends. We used to connect online via dial up and the internet used to disconnect a lot. I still miss those days a lot, and now it is time to play Phantasy Star Online 2 (PSO2) on PC. Sadly I no longer have an Xbox One, because I sold it. Now I only have Nintendo Switch and PS4. Since there is no release date for the PS4 version, I will be playing on PC. I will move my Mac Mini from my office to the living room and I will connect it via Xbox One Controller for PC. My Mac Mini has a Windows 10 via Bootcamp, so I will play the PC version until the release of PS4 version. Hopefully Sega don’t take a long time to release the PS4 version or even a PS5 version.
