Welcome back to day 2 of beta testing Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War.
Thankfully there were no issues getting the game to load initially today. That's not to say there weren't a lot of other issues with the game but we'll get into that in a sec.
The game is a blast to play. I am not one who tends to play these competitive first person shooters but I'm starting to think maybe I should be spending more time playing them. I did get better over the course of playing but still got obliterated each round. Some of that was due to glitching in the game but generally it was just me.
The wide selection of guns and modifications that you can apply to your weapon of choice is fantastic. It really helps to make each class feel like it's "your own" more so than the last version of Black Ops that I remember playing. The levels are also a great size and construction making it so that they are large enough for a new player like myself to get a little exploring in before dying. They aren't so crazy big that I find myself aimlessly wandering around either which I have found in other games and that, to me, can be more frustrating than getting quickly killed.
The negatives that I was dealing with (remembering that this is a beta test) were a lot of glitching within the game as well as full game crashes. From general map loading issues to full freezing while playing the game definitely has some bugs to work out still.
I attempted to get some co-op play in and it honestly took about a half hour before we could game in game chat to work between us. After that was finally sorted out we started a game only to have it crash the second I started moving. It seemed to be more of an issue for me than my cohort who was playing on an Xbox though. I can't be sure how much of it was an issue on my end or with the game itself but it was bad enough that there are certain classes I could not edit. For some reason every time I tried to open up those particular classes it would crash while I was able to open and edit other classes without issue.
Overall the game was a lot of fun and if you're into first person shooters you will for sure enjoy this game. Even people (like myself) who don't play these games too often should try their hand at this game once it comes out. It was a blast even though I got killed frequently.
Playstation has come out with everyone's best interests at heart. Our wallets. With the free release of 10 games for both 2D and the VR experience you're sure to find something that interests you. Assuming that you play Playstation that is.
I spent a lot of time looking into what games were worth spending money on for my VR headset. After a lot of time looking into what was out there and testing out a bunch of free ones I landed on BeatSaber being my first real purchase.
Free games tend to be a large hit or miss market. There are some out there that are far too fun and should be charging something. While others aren’t worth the time it takes to download them. Bait is something that falls into the category of being worth the effort.
The initial hurdles of getting into the system can be frustrating. Honestly something that I found a little frustrating was attempting to read my WIFI password and enter it into the VR headset although I can only see where I am typing when I have the headset on. Aside from that the main struggles were just related to learning how to properly function with a headset on. The controls are very comfortable and easy to use making the process easier. After getting past that I got sucked into using the headset way way too much.
With the latest update to Stardew Valley there’s more reason than ever to get back into the game! Especially if you own it on console. SPLIT SCREEN CO-OP!!!!! This was a long time coming but even so I still am taken back by how much extra enjoyment is added to the game by playing it split screen with my partner.
Looking for a mobile game that not only has massive draw but will also get you out of the house? Something that you can play with others and even meet new people through? Ingress from Niantic is the game you're looking for.
There are a few games that are a major part of my childhood and Mario 64 is one of the top games of the “throwback” category to me. I remember spending hours trying to get through the simplest of tasks and I'm glad to say that as an adult the game is not so intimidating. Updated with smoother controls really elevates the gameplay to something a lot more enjoyable.
So a review of this game would be kinda absolutely useless based on the age of it. It’s been out forever so instead it lands as a Throwback to all those old games that bring back wonderful childhood memories. Much like Super Mario 64, I recall playing Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 obsessively as a child. Although it might not hold up as well as some games, the nostalgia is always nice.
It's finally here! Hyrule Warriors: age of calamity came out today. Did you wonder what happened during those 100 years that link was napping? Get your hands on Hyrule Warriors to see what went down. Not sure about the game? Grab the free demo on the Nintendo eShop and test it out for yourself.
Darkest Dungeon is captivating as soon as you start it up but will that maintain. With so many games out there some just aren't worth your time and for me Darkest dungeon falls into the latter category.
Looking for an open world game full of quests yet with the options to craft and farm? Yonder might be what you've been waiting for! With its mix of crafting elements to build up the world and exploration you'll find yourself scouring the island to save the inhabitants from the murk that is taking over this island.
