Overwatch Mercy Updates

Like most of you guys, we are huge Overwatch fans here at Mods “R” Us. The recent Halloween update has been a lot of fun and anything that brings back the epic, Junkenstiens Revenge gets a high five from us.
ModsRus Mod Controllers
But the biggest change happened just the other day and that was to Mercy who has had her healing abilities kind of nerfed. The resurrect ability made a player playing as Mercy who knew what they were doing a hugely important part of a team. You could argue that a skilled Mercy player is the most important part of an Overwatch team!
Anyway, this new update has made it so that her Valkyrie and Resurrect work together “better” so that two players can be resurrected in a more efficient and timely manner. Valkyrie no longer will affect the cooldown of Resurrect so that is something players are going to have to watch for.
Blizzard has done a lot of work the last year tweaking various characters in an effort to make the game as balanced as possible, but with Mercy being a character that many of the diehard fans love to play as. If these changes prove to be not popular then perhaps they will make changes. After all, it is hard to imagine that a new player or just a casual player is using Mercy. Mercy is a character that is best used by someone who knows exactly what they are doing so we have a feeling it is going to be the hardcore players who dictate if this new change stays or not.

Rainbow Six Lockdown Part 6
The History Of The Rainbow Six Series Part 6
Get ready to dish out some more orders to your squad as we have a look at another one of the classic games in the Rainbow Six series.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Lockdown (2005) Xbox, PlayStation 2, Nintendo GameCube, PC

By now, Rainbow Six was one of the premier shooter franchises and for this installment, things to a bit more of an action heavy kind of feel. Once again you play as Rainbow team. In the year 2009, you have been tasked with putting a stop to a terrorist organization called Global Liberation Front who have a virus called Legion that they want to unleash.

The console versions of the game were certainly more action based. Added into the console versions were these sniper sections which had a real shooter gallery kind of feel as you had to pick off various targets. Interestingly these sniper sections were not in the PC game. While Rainbow Six Lockdown still featured many of the tactical elements from past games. Action certainly seemed to be the direction that Ubisoft wanted to take the series in.

This more action heavy game resulted in mixed reviews, especially for the PC version as many fans felt this was a dumbed down version of what they had come to love.

Both the PlayStation 2 and Xbox would get their own exclusive online mode with the PlayStation 2 having Rivalry and the Xbox having a mode called Persistent Elite Creation which was actually a huge deal and something many people got into. The GameCube version did not support online play, but it did have an exclusive 2 player co-op mode.

This is not one of the more popular games in the series and you could argue that the response it got made Ubisoft take a long hard look at the series. 

Overwatch Halloween Terror 2017 Is Now Live!
Overwatch Halloween Terror 2017 Is Now Live!

Overwatch is an awesome game. It is not just that it is a very fun and accessible first person shooter. But the whole style and lore behind it that has really gotten people hooked. Blizzard really did knock it out of the park.

Last year, Junkenstein’s Revenge was a huge success and now the mode is back as part of this year’s Halloween event. But rather than just playing through a few hordes of enemies. You can now play it for as long as you like in order to see how long you can last.

The real star though is the new Halloween themed skins which people are going crazy for and really praying that they are going to get when they open up a loot box. There is going to be a ton of cool new items for us to try and get and we have until the 2nd of November to get them which should hopefully be enough time to make it happen.

The fact that Blizzard is giving this away for free is one of the reasons that so many people get into Overwatch. Sure you have to grind like hell to get them all, but as the game is so much fun to play, many people really do not mind this at all.

So remember you have until November 2nd to take advantage of this. This is certainly something we are going to do as we were really bummed out last year when they took Junkenstein’s Revenge away after the event finished! 

Spray Bullets With Jitter Controller Mod
Have Fun With Jitter Mod Spray Bullets

Jitter Mod Controller Xbox One - Jitter Mod Controller Ps4
Jitter Mod Controllers

Ok, so we all know that any good game of Call Of Duty is just full of people running around the map, looking to kill anything that moves. Our series of high-end modded controllers for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Xbox 360 have some great mods, but one that we are really proud of is Jitter!

Now Jitter does not work on all of the Call Of Duty games, it is mainly used for the newer ones. But wow is it a ton of fun and it just makes having a game of Call Of Duty that extra bit fun or it can even get you out of a jam if you find yourself in the wrong part of the map all by yourself.

This mod is called Jitter because when you have it activated, you are actually shooting bullets at a faster rate than the game intends you to do! This is awesome and you literally just fill the screen with bullets and it is a lot of fun to see another player wonder just what the heck is going on as you do.
We know that using Jitter all the time may not be to everyone’s taste. That is why this mod still allows you to aim with the left trigger. When you do this and then fire, Jitter will not happen so you will still fire like normal.

If you like to have a little bit of fun every now and again and if you like that fun to result in lots of people getting blown away by your epic COD skills, turn on the Jitter mod and watch the bullets fly.

The History Of The Rainbow Six Series Part 5
The History Of The Rainbow Six Series Part 5
Today we are looking at one of the more interesting entries in the Rainbow Six series.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six 3: Black Arrow (2004) Xbox
As you would probably have expected Rainbow Six 3 on PC had plenty of expansion packs. Well during this time, Xbox Live was just starting to take off and Ubisoft saw this as an opportunity to test the waters with consoles have “expansion packs” while not the same as a PC expansion pack, Black Arrow allowed Xbox gamers to have some fun and play some more Rainbow Six 3.

Black Arrow was designed with Xbox Live in mind and the two main new things were the game modes Total Conquest and Retrieval. This was the main selling point of Black Arrow. As well as having these two online game modes, Lone Rush was an offline mode that could be played in multiplayer via split screen
.
While there was only a couple of game modes, Black Arrow actually did have some work done on a gameplay level. Ubisoft worked really hard to make the game a much more fun and fair online experience. The original console version of Rainbow Six 3 on Xbox had an exploit called “Lean Walking” that could make games very unfair. This was one of the main things that Ubisoft went in and fixed with Black Arrow.

With ten single player missions and an incredible 14 multiplayer maps. While Black Arrow was made with Xbox Live in mind there was still a lot to do here for the person who just enjoyed playing Rainbow Six 3 on their own.

As a first try to see if console gamers would be willing to pay a little more for an add on experience, Black Arrow was actually very well done and popular with fans of Rainbow Six 3.

Overwatch Reversing Player Bans
Overwatch News
As you know here at Mods “R” Us, we are huge fans of Overwatch and the last couple of days there has been some pretty neat Overwatch news and we wanted to talk a little bit about it.
Overwatch Reversing Player Bans
Some unlucky people have found themselves banned from competitive play even though they did nothing wrong. It has so far affected around 200 Overwatch players, but do not freak out as Blizzard has said it is a small bug and they are on it. Anyone who has been banned during this time is going to be looked after and have their account reinstated. People who had never left a game early or done anything offensive had reported they had been banned from playing! Blizzard then came out and confirmed that it was a bug, well at least we now know they are fixing it.
Cool Overwatch Figures Coming Later This Year
We think the Overwatch Funko Pop figures are awesome. But just recently it was revealed that in October there is going to be a new line of Overwatch figures. These are part of the Cute But Deadly line and they look awesome. They are super cute, but also pretty badass looking. These are going to be blind box mini figures, there is going to be 12 characters in this first series and if you want our opinion, Lucio, D.Va, and McCree are the coolest. We hope that since they are blind boxes that someone figures out what the codes on each box are so we can get the figures we want.  
Grand Theft Auto China Town Wars
Grand Theft Auto China Town Wars
Today we are causing more carnage with our Grand Theft Auto Retrospective, but this time the carnage is happening in the palm of your hand!
Grand Theft Auto China Town Wars (2009/10) Nintendo DS, PlayStation Portable, Mobile
First released on the Nintendo DS and then the PlayStation Portable. Grand Theft Auto China Town Wars was kind of a throwback to the series roots with its top down style. But this time the graphics did have a kind of 3D effect to them. In all honesty, this graphical style really suited the DS, but many felt the PSP could have done a lot better.
The game sees you play the role of Huang Lee who is the son of a major Triad gangster. You want to make a name for yourself and you do this by going on a rampage through the streets of Liberty City. China Town Wars did have a few interesting gameplay mechanics. The way you dealt with police was interesting as when you had a wanted level, this would dictate the amount of police that was after you so if it was level 5, you would have to take down 5 police cars to get the wanted level down. China Town Wars got a lot of attention at the time for its drug dealing subplot. This was really in depth and added a lot of strategy to the game.
The Nintendo DS version of the game made use of the touch screen and the microphone. The game actually handled this in a good way and it did not feel tacked on. The PSP version has upgraded graphics and would change the touch screen mini games to quick time events. The PSP version also had more missions and far better quality sound. The mobile versions of the game were optimized for mobile devices and returned most of the touchscreen controls.
Grand Theft Auto China Town Wars very well received on the Nintendo DS and despite being far different from the other PSP GTA games, that version was also critically acclaimed, although it did not sell as well as the other PSP Grand Theft Auto games.
Grand Theft Auto The Lost And The Dammed
Grand Theft Auto The Lost And The Dammed
Act like you are a badass biker in the next installment of our Grand Theft Auto retrospective!
Grand Theft Auto The Lost And The Damned (2009) PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC
Today we are not looking at a whole new game, but a piece of DLC that while being an add on for Grand Theft Auto IV contained as much, if not more gameplay than many of the other games that were released in 2009.
Grand Theft Auto The Lost And The Damned was the first of two DLC episodes for GTA IV. This saw you playing as Johnny Kleebitz. Who is the leader of a chapter of the motorcycle gang, The Lost MC. You actually encounter these guys in the story of GTA IV and they were pretty darn cool. The story of this DLC sees you trying to keep the chapter running all the while having to deal with some internal issues that want to see you no longer be the leader. The story was very well written and as you would expect the voice acting was awesome.
The game was a lot shorter than a typical GTA game, with some people beating it in 10-15 hours. But for DLC this is a lot of gameplay. You could free roam and do what you want, but the story missions did things a little different. What they did was add in mid mission checkpoints. This was awesome as if you failed a mission, you did not have to restart the whole thing.
As this was based on a biker, the bike was a big deal and two kinds of missions, Bike Races and Gang Wars required you to be on the bike. Multiplayer also had lots of bike focused modes such as chopper vs chopper, lone wolf biker, and witness protection.
The Lost And The Damned was heavily praised by critics, especially the story and the fantastic way they improved motorcycles in the GTA world.
Doom On The Nintendo Switch
Doom On The Nintendo Switch
As you know, here at Mods R Us, we are all about first person shooters. We have been taking a real close look at Call Of Duty WW II lately, but there is another first person shooter that was announced recently that took us and many other people by surprise and that is Doom….. for the Nintendo Switch.
While we focus on modded controllers for the PlayStation, Xbox, and PC. It is still very interesting to us that the Nintendo Switch is getting a port of Doom. This is the same Doom that blew us away last year on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC it actually works great with our controllers.
The Nintendo Switch is not as powerful as the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One so the game has taken a hit in the frame rate department. It has been said that it is locked at 30 FPS which has gotten some people up in arms. We feel that the fact this is running at all on the Nintendo Switch is amazing and to be honest with you, people who never got to play the game on Xbox One, PS4 or PC are probably not actually going to notice.
Doom is going to just have the single player campaign on the Switch cartridge or card. The multiplayer is going to be available, but you have to download it and it is a 9 GB download! With the tiny 32 GB storage that the Switch has, this is actually a far bigger deal than the game running at 30 FPS!
Going back to the 30 FPS thing, we feel that as every Switch owner is going to be on a level playing field, the lower frame rate should not be an issue, but we are sure that some of you who have played the other versions will certainly notice it.

The Magic Of Overwatch
The Magic Of Overwatch
As you know here at Mods R Us, our modded controllers are perfect for those who love first person shooters. When it comes to first person shooters, Overwatch is one of the very best and most popular released in the last decade! Blizzard absolutely nailed it with Overwatch and today, we want to look at why that is.
To start with Overwatch has more personality and style than the majority of other first person shooters on the market. Blizzard did a wonderful job in creating a very interesting cast of characters. Each one with their own backstory and play style, plus charming personality. It makes it very easy for a player to gravitate to a couple of different characters and stick with them.
While the characters and setting of Overwatch are of course awesome. The gameplay is the real draw here. The game modes are what you would expect. But it is the core gameplay that has sucked so many people into the world of Overwatch. It is so easy to pick up and play, but there can be a lot of depth here, especially if you are willing to work as part of a team and play your role. But at the same time, you can totally just lone wolf it and run around shooting everything you see!
Overwatch has also been awesome in regards to DLC. Blizzard has really supported the game very well and so far the characters they have added have all been added for free which is great. Plus they have these special events like Junkenstien’s Revenge and The Summer Games which make the game even more fun.
Blizzard has a monster hit on their hands with Overwatch and we really cannot wait to see what they have in store for the next Overwatch game!

Road To Red Dead Redemption 2: Red Dead Revolver
Road To Red Dead Redemption 2: Red Dead Revolver
Red Dead Redemption is one of the games that us folks in the Mods R Us office are super excited about and we thought it would be fun to look at where this series started.
Red Dead Revolver (2004) PlayStation 2, Xbox
While these days Red Dead is known as one of the major RockStar games. The interesting thing about this series is that it started life out as a Capcom property. Capcom was working on the game in 2002, RockStar bought the game, made some major changes to it. RockStar increased the violence and gave it a more “spaghetti western” feel than what Capcom was working on and the rest is history.
Red Dead Revolver sees you playing the role of Red Harlow. A gunslinger in the 1880’s who is trying to get justice for his parents who were brutally murdered. The game is actually very story driven and the voice acting for the time was some of the best around. It may be a little predictable in places, but the story was something that was heavily praised at the time of release.
The gameplay of Red Dead Revolver is that of an action 3rd person game. Red Harlow is an expert with guns and you will be going along looking for justice by putting a beating on and bullets in any person who gets in your way. Red Dead Revolver is fairly linear and does not have the massive open worlds of a GTA or Red Dead Redemption. But it tells its story very well and is fun to play.
At the time of release, Red Dead Revolver was very well received and of course, it set the stage for RockStar to created Red Dead Redemption. As of right now, you can pick up Red Dead Revolver for just a few bucks and it is well worth playing.

Road To Red Dead Redemption 2: Red Dead Redemption
Road To Red Dead Redemption 2: Red Dead Redemption
Today we are saddling up as we are continuing our look at the road to Red Dead Redemption 2!
Red Dead Redemption (2010) PlayStation 3, Xbox 360
Red Dead Redemption is one of the greatest games of its generation and for some people one of the greatest video games of all time. RockStar really did outdo themselves with this game and created one of the best stories, characters, and settings of any game.
The story sees you playing the role of John Marston. Who is a former gunslinger who used to run with a gang of bad guys. For years, John has left this life behind him as he tries to make a go of it on his ranch with his wife and son. But the past always has a way of catching up with you and government agents take his son and order him to bring in his former gang if he wants to see them again.
The story is just so well written and you really do care about John as he is a far more complex character than you first realize. The story of the game has you going all over the old West, Mexico, and even the cold North. Of course, you are playing the main story, but you get sucked into other people’s stuff as well such as the eccentric Nigel West Dickens and the revolutionary, Abraham Reyes. You encounter a ton of different characters and as well as the main story, there is a ton of side missions for you to do as well.
The gameplay of Red Dead Redemption is that of an open world, 3D action game. You can use horses to travel the land so you can explore or you can hop on a stagecoach. There is just a ton to see and do here from skinning animals, collecting plants and even hunting down bounties for cash!
Red Dead Redemption is one of RockStar games finest pieces of work and a game that should be in everyone’s collection.

The History Of BioShock Part 4 The Collection
The History Of BioShock Part 4
We thank you for joining us at Mods R Us as we look back at the awesome series that is BioShock. Today we have the last entry in this series so once again dive down to Rapture and soar up to Columbia!
BioShock Collection (2016) Pc, Xbox One, Ps4
While there has not been an actual new BioShock game for a few years. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners would be able to get in on the action in 2016 when 2K games released, BioShock: The Collection! This was a collection that was rumored for quite some time and leaks from international retailers would result in 2K having to announce the game earlier than they would have liked.
As you probably know, BioShock The Collection features all three BioShock games and all of their DLC. It is the ultimate BioShock set and for fans of the series, it was awesome having all three games, plus the DLC in one package. The games, BioShock 1 and 2 especially had been given a lick of paint and seeing Rapture in all its HD glory was something many fans got a real kick out of. BioShock Infinite was given the least “attention” but to be fair this was already a fantastic looking game so not as much had to be done to Infinite in order to bring it up to PS4 and Xbox One standards graphically.
BioShock The Collection would come on two discs with the first disc having BioShock 1 and 2 on it and the second disc having BioShock Infinite on it. Interestingly, the same box art is used for both discs.
Right now if you want the best way to experience the BioShock saga, BioShock The Collection is the way to do it. You get all the games, looking better than they ever have before and you even get all the DLC! It is one of the best collections currently available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and a must have for both systems.

Halo Retrospective Part 13: Halo Wars 2
Halo Retrospective Part 13: Halo Wars 2
Here we have the final part of our Halo Retrospective. We thank you for taking this look back on the Halo Universe with us and remind you that if you want to be the ultimate Spartan. You need one of our, modded Xbox One controllers and our modded Xbox 360 controllers.
Halo Wars 2 (2017) Xbox One, PC
Teased back in 2015, Halo Wars 2 was a game that took many of us by surprise. As good as the first Halo Wars was, not many felt that a sequel would come. But when that first trailer launched, people went nuts!
The gameplay of Halo Wars 2 is that of a real time strategy game. Like before it is all about the UNSC (humans) going against the Covenant. The story mode is actually very well done and like the first game, it is told with some incredible cut scenes that really do hook you and make you invested in the story. One of the things we liked about the story was how it was like a side story to the whole Halo universe and anything that helped give more insight to the Halo universe is very welcomed by the fans.
Halo Wars 2 is the kind of real time strategy game that is not really aimed at hardcore players of this genre of game. One of the criticisms some people had was that it was a little too accessible for some. This though for people who were new to this genre of the game was a very good thing. The rather basic and accessible nature of the gameplay made it a real time strategy game that we could all enjoy. For those players who felt it a little too simplistic. They could jump online and wage war with a more skilled opponent.
