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.
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.
