I want to start by showing off the average review rating this game has received. With an average score of 7.5/10 it seemed like a game that should have been fairly fun. The reviews range wildly but on average it rated better than a lot of games do. Now on to the Quick Blip for The Evil Within (and the reason that we came up with Quick Blips).
The Evil Within starts off as a fairly interesting game. You're a detective who gets brought to an in progress crime scene due to special circumstance. Upon entering you find numerous dead bodies and upon finding the security room you see a ghost or spirit of some sort that kills off three police officers easily, all while being shot at. It then proceeds to warp through the camera and attack everyone in the room that you're standing in. You wake up strung upside down in a room where a beefy guy is dismembering bodies Castlevania style..
As you work your way through the hospital, it takes a little bit to get used to the controls but it is nerve wracking and exciting. Unfortunately as soon as I finally managed to exit the hospital is when I started to lose interest in the game.
After a wild ride through the city you end up in a forest trying to get past all these infected(?) people who are trying to kill you. The farther you get in the game the more sentience they seem to gain and even start using weapons. This took the game in a much different direction than we thought it was going to go and became much less appealing to us. I tried to keep going through it in order to write a review about it but honestly I was hating it so much that I ended up creating the idea of Quick Blips as a way to write about a game that I just couldn't muster the energy to finish!
Not to totally dunk on the game as it was good in a lot of ways but it just wasn't the type of game that I like. If you enjoy a game that forces you to heavily monitor your supplies (in a Resident Evil way) than you'll likely enjoy this game a lot. We picked it up second hand for $8 so it's not much of a loss but I would have been rather upset if we had payed full price. I would suggest trying to find a used copy yourself if you're interested in trying it out. There is a sequel coming after all there must've been lots of fans to warrant that happening!
Let us know what you think of the Quick Blip or the game itself in the comments below.
This game is not as fun as I thought it would be but for those who like the Resident Evil series you might find this game entertaining. I would suggest trying to find it on sale just in case.
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.
I bet there is a number of you out there who are going "Finally a third Pikmin!" Well sorry to burst your bubble but the game has actually been out for a long while. Whether you've never played the third game or just haven't touched it in a while the free demo in the Nintendo Store is worth the download!
Although the game came out 9 years ago it still has a lot of playability today. Whether you're just trying to find areas that you've never explored or creating a whole new build opposite or what you normally play there's numerous ways to keep you interested. With the addition of the Amiibo it can be even more exciting.
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!
While we are awaiting the sequel in the much beloved “Breath of the Wild” series Nintendo surprised us with a prequel! Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity lets you play through the war in the years previous to the adventure we’ve come to love. Get through Hyrule as any of the previous heroes!
Nintendo has adamantly stated that the DS would not be brought to an end because of the Switch. This was hard to believe as the Nintendo Switch is very similar to the DS consoles. Staying true to their word for much longer than anticipated their latest update may bring an end to the DS.
