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. I honestly remember thinking “wow those people look so real!” Ya I can’t believe there was any point that I actually believed that now but at the time I was super impressed.
Although there’s a lot of fun to be had in making your own roller coasters it does wear off pretty quickly. Maybe it’s just that the novelty of being able to create your own things in a game has become more of a normal thing that it can just be frustrating now. Maybe it’s the fact that even if you’re looking to reach certain statistics out of your coaster you won’t have any idea how it ranks until it is done. No matter what it is, it’s just a lot simpler to build one of the designs that you can choose from instead of taking the possible hours to create one yourself.
That being said it removes a lot of the difficulties in the game that make the missions fun. Instead of trying to create the perfect park I was able to easily see what the tasks were to get gold status on the inspection. From there all I had to do was pick the right coaster and plop it down then wait for the inspector to come a few months down the line. The latest mission that I did I was able to meet all the requirements about ten minutes in. It took me longer to build the pathways than it did to complete the tasks.
Not to say that this is a bad game but just that it doesn’t hold up to the test of time like some of our other Throwback games (looking at your Mario 64). I would play the hell out of a modern version of the game but I’ll be the first to admit that this old version takes effort to keep myself interested in.
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.
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.
Genshin Impact: Gacha gaming that’s… good? I often find myself not knowing quite how to feel about mobile games. While capable of providing cheap thrills and alleviating temporary boredom, they generally don’t possess the sort of staying power more robust console and PC titles do.
Has gaming lost its magic? Are you unable to find a game worth your time? Do you scroll endlessly through your library and waste time watching trailers - but nothing engages you? You might have Gamer's Block! Don't worry though, there's hope for you yet.
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.
I don't play a lot of competitive first person shooters. Call of Duty specifically I haven't played since high school. That made getting Beta access to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War a little nerve wracking. I figured that I should record my first attempt at playing this game so that you can what it's all about
Most games that I remember from years past are the classics known for their great gameplay. I can confidently say that's not the case for this game. The crazy nature of this game, from animation to concept, is definitely what has kept it in my mind all these years.
