So I know that this is not a new game by any means but it is the first time I have played it. I borrowed it from a friend since I have looked at it every time that I see it in the store. I’m making this write up a quick blip because this game is not my type of game to play. That is not to say that it is a bad game at all, just not something that interests me particularly.
The game reminds me of a classic arcade side scroller game but with an upgraded 3D depth to the scenery. Flying in a plane (that can also fly underwater?) while shooting the things that come onto the screen to stay alive and hopefully upgrade as you go!
There are a number of things that can be “won” from shooting down enemies:
Increases the time you have to make it through the level
Upgrade your weapon. Being hit can make you lose those upgrades.
Increase the length of time you can slow time down for.
Increase your score.
Now as your getting through the level it’s not difficult to get a number of weapon upgrades. The more you get the easier it is to get more. That is until you reach a boss or mini boss and they are shooting nearly every direction at the same time. As soon as you get hit your weapon upgrades drift away from you with a short period of time for you to retrieve them before they disappear into nothingness. Well since the boss is still shooting from every which direction it feels nearly impossible to hold onto your weapon upgrades. Without the weapon upgrades I find myself having an extremely difficult time being able to do enough damage to matter before running out of time and “dying “ that way.
After everything I can see the positives of this game and how some people could really get into it. It is just not for me at all and for that reason I’ve decided to move onto the next thing instead. If you get the chance to try it for free like I did I would highly suggest giving it a shot.
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.
