Minecraft 3DS Edition

Man…I’m not sure what to feel about this game. I am all for Minecraft, and I use to when I’m trying to clear my mind. So when I heard this edition was coming out, I was all for it.

 

Now, this may be because I’m slightly older than the intended players, so I guess I found it a little difficult.  Though it’s just like the other minecraft games, the one thing I found difficult was using the c-stick the look around, other then that everything made sense.

 

Now, if you’re looking for a minecraft game, this is perfect, once you get used to the C-stick. It’s just like Final Fantasy Explorers and Monster Hunter 4.

 

It’s a great time killer and overall a great game. But it wasn’t my cup of tea. I still have it to play once in awhile but I think I’m going to stick with my PC version of MC 🙂

 

My honest rating is 7/10 thought I don’t like it, I like Minecraft itself. And just because I don’t like one thing about it doesn’t make this a bad game. Literally once I got used to the c-stick it was pretty fun.

Gears of War 4

The long awaited installment of the Gears of War series is finally here! Omg! 😀 I’ve been waiting for a redemption. Judgement was a terrible place to end it! UGH!!!!

 

Alright so, let’s get this started!!!

A new story with new foes and new characters really help you immerse yourself into this game. I like the idea of playing J.D but at the same time, it was so great to see Marcus again. The idea is that the locust have returned but seem to be fascinated with kidnapping people from towns and doing whatever with this (turns out they were messing with their DNA or something and making the Swarm BUM BUM BUMMMMM)

 

Now, the storyline is short but very intense. You play as JD, who left the Cog and with the help of his friends, try to find out why the Swarm is taking their family and other humans. There you run into Marcus again and then a big mess appears and it’s just more fun to experience the fun at this point!!

Combat is very straightforward, and you rely on cover to make sure you don’t die. The accuracy of the weapons is always great and it’s nice to find a bad ass weapons laying around after you slaughter your foes, and there’s nothing bad with a little blood on your boots.

 

Now, they do add some horde mode esc type deals in the story line as well. You have to set up certain things to help the story a long. A turret here, a barrier there. You are literally only as strong as your weakest link and it’s a make or break situation when it’s there!!!

 

The real awesome thing is the Multiplayer modes :O They have added a portable energy station so you can literally pick the best spot possible and that you are READY for the foes who dare threaten your life ecte ect.

 

Besides Horde Mode, there’s a few new things they added to make the PvP in this game really competitive and really make you work your noggin to be the best (Like no one ever was DUN DUN DUN..To…wait, wrong game)

 

Now it’s also worth noting, there were some issues I ran into while playing. The major one was there were some situations where events didn’t trigger which left me to redo a chapter or an  area and it lead to kind of a boring experience. But who knows, maybe it’ll get fixed in the future That’d be awesome!!!!

 

This is a def. 7/10 cogs. Though I really enjoyed the game, the bugs kinda killed the game for a me a little. Now, don’t get me wrong. I”m going to keep playing it and until i finish all the levels, but the bugs turned me away a little. But it’s def.a noteworthy game 😀

Skyrim Special Edition

This is going to be a short and sweet review.

 

Literally, It’s Skyrim but prettier. Now, I got it for free since I had it on PC, and my thoughts are the same.

It’s Skyrim, with the DLC and prettier. I really don’t feel the need to say more than that. I mean the story line is the same. The game play is the same. The glitches are the same. It’s Skyrim. 

 

I’m aware there are a lot of people who are very pissed off about this, but I have to ask. What did you expect? They never promised it would be a new game. They never said they were ADDING anything. Just it was prettier. SO everyone giving this game a bad review can suck it.

 

I still and always will give this game 8/10. Some of the bugs make it unplayable/completable but that’s fine! It’s a great remastering of a great series and I just can’t get enough of it!!

The Forest

I don’t know about you. But the words Cannibal and Forest intrigue me. Now this may be because I am a huge fan of The Hills Have Eyes. Or any sort of horror film that involves anything like this….I think? I think it’s more, this is an idea I can get behind and support. So, with that being said. Let’s get started!

 

You start off in a neat little crash scene where some big guy steals your kid. Most parents would try to save them, you just kinda pass out. Some father….Anywho, once you wake up your “to do” list says that you need to build shelter, find food and water ect ect. Basic survival things.But then it says to find passengers, and Timmy. What have they done for you? I dunno but eh.

 

Build build build a fort, and eat all the legs!

Building is time consuming, but it’s so much fun because ti adds to the difficulty in my opionon. The more you clear cut the forest, the more upset the cannibals get and they more they want to getcha! The trick is to build a Log sled. I know it seems like such a silly thing but they can carry like 9 logs! And when a simple log cabin requires like 13? You do the math. 😉

 

Once you get your base set up, next would be to focus on food and water. Hopefully you’re not far from a lake or a turtle (Sorry PETA) or legs and arms will be on the menu for you. If you don’t mind losing your sanity, then this is a gret rout to go. Not only will you have a steady food supply you can also get bones from the limbs you chow down on and you can use them to build things. I’m currently working on build a bone fence around my Cannibal Witch house. But that is just me 🙂

 

Now, let’s get down to these Cannibals. These are what make the game on edge and exciting. There are about 5 different types of cannibals each more deadly than the last. You have the skinny ones, that are some what harmless. They don’t do a lot of damage solo, but in a big group, watch out. Virgina and Cowman though, are dangerous no matter how you look ta it.  The trick is to Dodge. Oh….wait THEY dodge. Silly Lily!!

 

But let’s get down to business right now. You can’t defeat all the cannibals and mutants with your silly little axe you get from the dead flight attendant.  You have the Bow and arrows, stone axes, and you can steal the maces off some of the cannibals. It’s really up to you. Do you survive or conform?! I tried to conform but then my friends started to give me sacrifices of human flesh so I could spare them and then it just got funky!

 

Any who…it’s always better to just survive and explore when you feel it’s right! I mean you can’t just stay in your safe little fort with endless food, when there’s a WHOLE island to explore! WHAT?! A entire Island inhabited with cannibals and mutants and Cannibal Witches (Me. I’m referring to me).

 

The true end goal, is to find the passengers and your son. Or, you know you can just kinda do whatever you want. Survive, Thrive, Die. Whatever floats your boat! DO IT! JUST DO IT!

Long story short, this is a great survival horror game, and I like it. It’s fun to play with friends, but at the same time it’s fun alone! I give this game a 8/10. Thought it is sill in Alpha, it’s still so much fun! I cannot wait to see the final prodcut and I will be keeping this under watch 😉

Tom Clancy’s The Division

Another installment in the Tom Clancy series was released a few weeks ago. So, why is this review coming out so late? I had a lot of games on my list to play, so this review got pushed back a little. I apologize. Def. not something I’m happy about but it was something that happened. Before I start this review, I want to warn you there may be spoilers. So be warned!!!!!!

 

I know what a lot of you are probably thinking. But Uni, we haven’t seen you stream this game at all!! I know. I want to add that I am not sorry about it neither. Why? Because all you’d hear is me cussing and fuming haha. But that doesn’t mean I don’t stream other games.

 

So what is the Division? For those who haven’t seen or heard anything about it…the Division is a story about a virus mutation that took over NY and Brooklyn. You were a sleeper agent that was woke up to help the situation.

 

Who are you Agent?

The first thing I was to start with is the Character Creation, or lack thereof. I get it. I really do. I mean you don’t SEE the face of your agent all the time, but there are more CLOTHES in the game then Hair styles. The hell is up with that? I’m not asking for full customization but I want more.  LIke, I was aiming for a Panda Agent. And the face paint isn’t as dark as I want it.

 

But enough about looks. You can customize your guns as well. I rather enjoy having a bright pink, bright turquoise and bright purple gun. I feel empowered.

 

Taking small arms fire! SMALL ARMS FIRE!!!

 

Guns. They’re things you fill with bullets and shoot enemies, or if you like it, other players. There’s a lot you can actually do with the firearms in this game. From Mods, skins and shooting. I feel like it’s realistic for the most part. The reverb is there as well as shock.

 

The mods you get and help improve your aim, damage, stability among other things. I enjoy my Vector right now, now if I could replace my second gun that would be grand. Pistols are pretty much useless in my opinion. They don’t do a lot of damage so there’s no point in having them, besides they’re required for whatever reason. I would love to carry around another machine gun instead of a pistol, but whatever. Who needs three Useful guns? Not Agent Panda.

 

Many Agents go into the Dark Zone….not many come out.

 

There is a place called the Dark Zone, or as I call it, the place for people to be a piece of shit. The idea of PvP in this game is very welcomed. I like the fact that I have the OPTION to kill another player and steal their loot. But there’s a difference between wanting their loot and being a troll.

 

For the time being. The Dark Zone is end game. So there’s not a lot to do besides the daily missions. The dailies are repeats of quests you did during the story line but at a harder difficulty. This to me is very welcomed. I like being challenged. I like fighting harder NPC and the change at Phat Loots. I mean who doesn’t enjoy loot? No one. That’s who!

 

Now, let’s get back to the Dark Zone. The DZ is in the middle of NY, it’s the center of attention at end game. The NPC are a lot harder and require more skills. Skills? Why skills? If you accidently hit another player while fighting NPC, well guess what. You’re Rogue.

 

Now, a Rogue agent are those that go against what they were trained and kill other Agents. From what I gathered, sometimes Rogues are cool, other times they’re real jerks. I’ve come to the point where it’s best not to pick up loot until you can extract them immediately.  

 

All in all, it’s a Tom Clancy game. I liked the story, I liked the game play. My only actual complaint about the game is the Dark Zone. As it sits right now, there’s no punishment for the players who cheat and use cheats to go rogue. That takes the thrill out of the Dark Zone. I liked running around in a “trust no one” mind set. Now I’m scared of my own shadow because I finally get this upgrade and BAM! It’s all gone.

 

This game is going to get a 6/10. I enjoyed the game, but the Dark Zone kind of killed the score of this game. People cheating the system for gain, is wrong. I will revisit The Division when the xpacks come out, if i get them, It’s a little iffy now. But who knows. There’s always tomorrow.  Or is there?

Creativerse

Creativerse

 

Creativerse is just one of those games that you use to kill time. A Minecraft Remake, it adds new lands, creatures and adventure to your gaming history.

 

I rather enjoyed the game, but I finished the story line in less than a day and it left me yearning way more.  It is an early access title, so I will be keeping my eye on it 🙂

 

You start out at a spawn point with nothing in your inventory except a note…In my opinion, a super creepy note written by someone I don’t know that told me to run away from home and hopefully I’d survive in the wilderness.

 

Yes, you read that right. You’re a runaway. A runaway. I mean you’re literally a little kid alone in the woods hoping to survive the night. How? Why? No idea. It’s literally one of those things where you’re scared to question it, but at the very same time…WHAT’S WITH THE NOTE MAN COMMON! What’s in the note?!?!?!

 

The beauty of  the game.

 

The beauty lies with the blocks in this game. Everything is unique and different and not pixelates. It reminds me of Trove, but with more details. From the Bark on the tree to the spots on the giant crabs. This game is a great remake of classics and I think does some sort of Honor to the genre, for those who just do vanilla graphics and doesn’t touch mods. (JS!!).

 

The total amount of detail spend on this game is pretty nice. I can tell what dirt is, dying grass, logs animals. I’m not sitting here like “Hm this looks like water, nope it’s a hole annnnnnnd I’m dead. Crap.”

 

Taming, mining and farming. Oh my!

 

There’s a lot more to this game then surviving your first night. You can Thrive! If you follow me on Instagram (link in my contact section) You’ve probably noticed me posting picture of things I’ve tamed. Taming is HUGE in this game if you can’t find the right materials in a timely manner. If you know me, then  you know I’m all about taming and farming and being one with Nature. Heh.

 

Taming creatures is beneficial only if you’re looking at drops. Right now, they don’t fight with you. But all creatures are tameable. If you have the health, patience and the time 🙂

 

Farming is a bit fun. You gather Turnips, melons cabbage and wheat, grind them into seeds and Vu la! Food. Food that can be made into sandwiches, soups, weapons, bombs. Or you can just feed animals that like the veggie. That works too. When you feed your tamed companion, you can later harvest them and get what they would normally drop plus a few extra things. Who knew a sammich would be useful!

 

Oh where to start with mining….Mining.  It’s just like it sounds. YOu start off mining wood and dirt. Ooo. Exciting. You have to mining a mining tool, that attaches to your wrist and sucks up stones and other things. I will admit, this is pretty neat. No more running around picking up blocks for me! Nope! This is when my only real issue with the games comes in. To advance, you have to FIND materials to make the more advanced tools. And I had a hard time finding the elements i needed to go on. I still trudged on tho and got to the third mining level, but then that was it. I was heartbroken.

 

It may have just been luck, but that’s what made me change to my farmer-self that I know and love.

 

To play or not to play?

 

Though this game is in early release, there are bugs and a short story. I’m sure as they start adding to the game, it won’t be a let down. The game has the exact same aspects as Minecraft. There’s the surface layer, then you mine down and you get to an end layer called, Corruption. There are tougher creatures there to fight and phat loots.  


Personally, I found it harder to gather materials, and was happy that i had a team with me. Like with some games, I ended up being the supplier of foods and good, in exchange for weapons, armor and mining tools.  Which I’m OK with. It was still super fun, I got to follow people to the Corruption and just plain enjoy the game 🙂

 

I do suggest to you guys, to give the game a try. If you don’t like it, you’ll only be out on time 🙂 It’s free to play! So common! Give it a gooooo!!!!!!

ARK: Survival Evolved

Hey everyone! Lily here, finally! Sorry about the stupid long absence. A lot has happened since my last review…The big thing was I did lose my job, so we’ve had to concentrate our time with other things, but it seems like stuff may be calming down now. I have the time to sit down and write a review for you guys!

 

With that being said. I was to let you guys know I am in the process of opening a tiny little online store to sell some nerdy things. From Earrings to Phone Charms! Whoot! I’m also looking into expanding my reviews to a few other areas, but that’s for another post!


So let’s get this bad boy out!

 

Ark is one of those neat little games that you either love or hate. It’s still in a beta stage, so there are some buggies and glitches but for the most part it’s easy to see where the game is going. But this review isn’t going to go on and on about those, because in my eyes, this game has SO much more to offer it’s players!!!

 

The Game Play

 

Imagine a world where you build homes, famr your materials and ultimately tame the biggest most bad ass dinosaur around. . I know what you’re thinking. “LIly, come on now this is Minecraft on steroids in prehistoric times” Pft…way to be a kill joy…

 

Though this game has characteristics of Minecraft, it is it’s own game with the respect…THERE ARE NO DINOSAURS IN MINECRAFT! (Disclaimer: Mods don’t count!) Now, this game isn’t all about dinosaurs now. There is so much to do, and even more to explore! But be careful. It is a dangerous world out there. One that can and will kill you without a second thought.

 

Curiosity can be a deadly thing in this game. Death isn’t something to take lightly in this game, and I’ll touch base on that a little alter. When it comes to ARKS, oh boy name of the game, you will want to check them out. With good intentions too. They have better gear, plans and other objects you’ll need to progress further into the game. One huge problem we came across is a lot of the ARKs in the spawning area, were wayyyy too high level, and eventually went to waste. It was so sad

 

Death in this game, is a serious deal. It’s very easy to lose yourself in the game and find a hungry velociraptor that wants to make you it’s next meal.  When you die, you lose everything. Clothes, gear, weapons, food. Everything. You do though, have a set amount of time to retrieve your items. Failure to do so, and you can kiss your work good bye.  🙁

 

But Lily, why is this such a HUGE deal? I’ll tell you guys why. It takes a lot of time and work to collect items, and a lot of concentration to realize, hey these berries are going bad in 30 seconds what do? Or you spend HOURS collecting enough materials to finish your little tiny hut to protect yourself against dinosaurs and the cold.  But one wrong move. Blip. Everything you gathered, crafted made. Gone.

 

No matter where you put food, it will always spoil. At least, that’s what we had an issue with. It made it hard to survive starting out, and tame some bad ass dinosaurs to run with us. ( I will always remember you Fluffy! You fought well beside me!)

 

Let’s get into taming dinosaurs really quick before. Depending on the type of Dinosaur, you either have to use precious meat, or common berries. I use the term precious because a dinosaur can be level 2, and kick your ass back to the pre-metazoa age. BA BAM, Science. Ok back on topic…meat and berries can and will spoil even if you feed them to the dinosaur. The time it takes to tame? Depends on the level from what we found. A level 3 dinosaur, once you knock it out, took us up to 20 minutes (this is real life time!!) to tame. I had time to collect some items, kick the dinosaur a few times, and finish building my house before I had a nice Triceratops following me around wanting to murder anything that touched me.

 

I lost that Triceratops….I got ambushed by two velociraptors. They killed me first, then killed him. Oh…I was so sad…..



How’s the game feel?

 

The graphics for the most part are fantastic and beautiful. You could see the dinosaur eyelids, the veins in the grass. Oh this game was so pretty.  I posted a few pictures on my Instagram of Fluffy. You can see every scale, claw and tooth on that bad boy. There were a few things that clipped and kind of floated….Floating grass seemed to be a big thing in this little grove we found.

 

I found myself, lost a lot and totally focusing on the game. I knew it was a game but at the same time, I just wanted to see everything I could in there. I will say though, this is one of the better visually appealing games I’ve played in awhile.

 

Now, when I said that I found myself lost in this game, it wasn’t the graphics alone. The sound effects in the game also drew me in. From the bird chirps to the sound of my impending doom (raptor calls), I just felt like I was in the forest. I was on the beach. I was getting eaten alive. I think you get the picture. Though a lot of the sound repeated, it was easy to identify the dinosaurs, and made calling out to my friends easy.

 

“Hey, Trombones, Raptor ahead, let’s go this way” or “Oh hey! Tire, I hear a turtle! Let’s kill it for food!”  #justdinothings

 

What do you think of the game?

 

Well, with everything being said. I like the game. The idea of losing progress is something that would technically happen in the real world. The idea of taming dinosaurs to have them hunt with you and eventually irde is one of the best things about this game. I’m not a biig fan of the time it takes to collect items to make shelter, fires and other things needed to basically stay alive, and the amount of stuff it takes to maintain them…you can kiss exploration goodbye sometimes. All in all, I liked the game, and can’t wait to play again. My ultimate goal, is to be a Raptor Queen and kill everyone in my clan, I mean path. I mean….oh who am I kidding. No one would mess with raptors.

 

I give this game 6/10. I liked the game, but losing hours of progress all because a level 2 dinosaur snuck up on you when you’re level 20 isn’t fun. I was literally scared to leave the Brotto (I didn’t name it)  It’s easy to lose, but at the same time when you get what you need it’s  easy to be ahead.

Fallout Shelter

Hey everyone! Hope you have all been well! I’ve been stuck in a Shelter waiting for the perfect time to get out and I thought now would be a good time to tell you about what I have been up to! Well, by being stuck in a Shelter, I mean I’ve been having some major back problems which have been preventing me from doing pretty much anything I wanted to do. Not fun at all!!!!! But, So far so good!!!

 

Before we get into the review, I have a few announcement for everyone! I’m in the process of getting a little Etsy store up and running. Show your support for UMG and check it out when it’s done 🙂 All purchases go to improving UMG and who know! Maybe even more :0

 

I’ve been hooked on Fallout Shelter! The new Mobile game where you’re in charge of your very own Shelter! How epic is that? I discovered this game right after I heard the fantastic news about Fallout 4. For those who have been living a secluded Shelter for a while, Bethesda has announced the next awesome installment of Fall Out Coming out November 10th of this year! I mean WHAT!!?!?! that’s so close! I think I may go crazy while I wait for it!

 

Now, Fallout Shelter is a lot different than the games. I know there have been some MObile version of games like Oblivion etc that have some of the story line in it but this one isn’t one of those.

 

You are the Overseer, the ruler of the might vault. It’s your job and yours alone (well…maybe Mr. Handy can help…) to make sure all of your dwellers are happy and not radioactive (I’m Radioactive, radioactive…). Those dwellers you deem worthy, can get sent out to the wastelands and collect bottle caps, gear and weapons to arm their fellow dwellers incase you get attacked by those Radroaches, Raiders and Mole Rats. God I hate Mole Rats….For those dwellers that have the stats you want to populate jobs or even just the shelter in general, you can breed them.  That’s right. You have little children running around your shelter like it’s nobody’s business. One time I forgot I had two people in the Barracks and I was overran by children. it was kind of scary.

 

Now, if breeding people isn’t your thing, you can always expaned your shelter with the hopes of getting new Dwellers for your place. RaideoStations work wonders for this. Now, not only do you have to worry about saving people, you can to worry about keeping them alive. Each person has their own unique trait that makes them useful. And I use that in a very light way. You have to train them basically to be totally awesome at their job, and even then sometimes that’s not enough. There are stats that each person has that makes them terrible or epic at a job. Those high in Agility help out in the Diner (why I am not terribly sure) Intelligence is for the Medpay and things like that Perception is Water Treatment and so forth. Once you get the right amount of dwellers you can train them in c talent to make them more useful and do what you need them to do.

 

Each room has something special about it. Diners make you food, Water Treatment water and you can’t forget energy. You can also build classrooms ect to train particular skills to make someone more perficiant in one place. The more you upgrade the better off your community will thrive. And thriving is good!

 

Of course, you think you’re safe and hidden away in the wastelands, but I’ll tell you what. You’re wrong. You are so wrong it’s not even funny. Hahaha! Ok, maybe it’s a little funny. There are multiple creatures that are out to make sure everyone dies, and you fail as an overseer. My favorite thing was my first Raider attack, because I didn’t have any weapons or anything. They just kinda came in, and took over everything and that was about it. However, once you get people with guns and armor, you’re basically unstoppable!

 

Graphics are pretty nice for a mobile game. The dwellers are Vault Boy variants, and I find that really neat. Even though sometimes I find it hard to tell my dwellers apart, but that kept me playing. The creatures that spawn are easily identified as well so that was hard to mix up.

 

For the most part, the sounds are pretty generic sounds. Nothing terribly special there. Default gun sounds, alarms and retro 60’s style music blips when you level up someone.

 

All in all if you’re looking for an addictive time killer, this may not be the one for you. It takes time to do anything, and everything takes time. Harvesting, exploration, breeding. It all can take a few mionutes for the minium amount and longer for even more. There’s also set backs if you’re looking to play it all at once.

 

I liked the game, it was enjoyable and something to do every hour or so for a few minutes before opening a book or playing another game.

 

I give it 7/10 bottle caps. Thought the game itself is part of a Legacy, it took a lot of time to ensure everything worked and even then, I had issued with the game. Random attack slaughtering my guys and even fires and Radiation killing off everyone. But, I still had fun with it. 🙂

Windward

Who hasn’t had the dream of being a pirate? I mean sailing the open seas killing other pirates, getting treasure and most importantly, getting the best looking ship out there! Arrrr!!!

 

Well your dream can finally come true! Windward is a pirate game where the goal is to be the best out there!!! Whao! A pirate game that’s not cartoonish? Oh yeah! You read that you are pirate sailing around in the openish waters fighting other pirates and doing quests to get money to buy upgrades. Yarrr!!

 

So you start out picking your map, if you’re playing by yourself or starting out a new server to play on with your friends. Once you pick or make your map you pick a side. The Map creation in this game is pretty neat. It’s a click and drag deal and you can make it ito any shape or size you want. It’s pretty fun if you’re into that type of map making. There are 4 different sides to pick from. Each had their own uses.

 

The Valiant, Exchange, Consulate and the Sojourn are the four factions you can choose from when you select your map. Each faction is unique like I said before.  For example, The Valiant get more experience and gold from fighting enemies while the Consulate gets more from Questing. The factions really don’t matter much besides starting locations, how your ship looks and that’ just about it.  There is a 5th faction, but it’s not playable but bribable. I’m not one to actually fight things so some of my gold I had went to bribing pirates to join me, and eventually they become part of your faction

 

Navigation isn’t terrible hard. You can use your WSAD keys or just your mouse. I find tho using the WSAD keys easier to manoeuvre through the seas and turn  and fight. However, starting out was a little difficult since if you hit land you take damage. The turning system for the ship is very wide, like an actual ship.  This is also very helpful but at the same time can be a huge pain. If you’re in the middle of a battle you want to turn wide to give yourself a better advantage to unleash the stinky fish barrels but if you catch yourself going in the wrong direction, a wide turn can do damage to you.

 

The graphics are actually very well done, and was one of the things that brought me to this game. Besides being a pirate of course. The water effects are actually very realistic. Every turn, movement or wobble your ship does, creates a ripple that looks to be in place. The ships art is also very unique to the game.  FIghting is also really engulfphing with the effects. Smoke, fire cannon balls, everything in this game was well done.

 

You can dye about everything on your ship, making it unique and personalized. You want a bright pink ship? Go for it! Blue and Purple ship? You betcha! Even the emblems are unique. Spiders, flowers, lions ect. Everything is at your fingertips to make the ship what you want it. Don’t forget the upgrades either. Each town has different dyes, emblems paints upgrade ect. You can buy new crew, cannonballs, captains and even throwable grossness to hurl at your enemies. The better the upgrades, the better you will be in battle.

 

The battle system in this game is a little different. You actually have blind spots and positions where you are unable to attack your foe, like a real ship battle. You can shoot your canons at them, throw fish guts or even give them gold and befriend them. There are multiple ways to play this game, and that’s one great thing about it.

 

All in all, this game is fun but each section of the maps repeat. Some of them you have to fight all the pirates to save the area while others you just get to quest. But each town offers something new with regards to ship modifications and crew. But, don’t let that bore you. The possibilities of being amushed by pirates always make the game exciting

 

I give this game 8\10 parrots. The game itself is beautiful and unique. I haven’t seen too many games like this. I do find the game exciting, and a surprise at every turn. I do however find a almost identical map and quest line boring after hours of question to get to use this upgrade I found in a shipwreck, But this is a recommended game!

I wanted to apologize to you guys for taking so long to post this review. I have had a lot going on, and I had to make some choices. I think everything has calmed down finally so I’m going to get back in the rhythm! I’m sorry again!

Dungeon Defenders II

I have always enjoyed tower defense games, and I must say I have had more fun with Dungeon Defenders more than any other game I have played, even the Star Craft II ones.

 

The beautiful installation do the Dungeon Defender line brings the legacy to a new beginning. I don’t think I have enjoyed a DD game more than I have this.

 

Those who know about the franchise knows that in the first game you play as children of great heroes and its up to you to save your parents. This game is a bit later and you play as an older version of the children you played years ago. With that being said, the gameplay is almost identical to the first game, same controls same fancy things but don’t let that fool you!!!! This is a new game!

 

With every game there’s more and more things to explore and defend. The maps have to be one of my favorite things with this game. There are more interactive things. Many of the maps require a fair amount of teamwork and strategy that I find intriguing. What’s the point of games like this if you don’t have to actually think? I don’t know about you guys but I like games that make me use may Britain!!!

 

I started playing the apprentice, but I have changed to the huntress since then. I like the thought I have to put in with her traps and I like her special moves. Thought I like the idea of powerful continuous bursts of magic, I like the idea of strategy. Each character has their own strengths that compliment the other characters but its a matter preference and how much fun you’re having.

 

There is only one complaint I have about the game. Why is this game not out yet? I love the idea of starting from fresh I love the new story line I can literally think of nothing negative about the game. Well maybe the fact the squirrel on the first map doesn’t come out of the tree when I wanted him to.

 

I am also a little confused by the censor in the game. There a few everyday non curse words that are blocked and it makes working with other people a little hard.

 

This game gets a 9/10 Crystals! I loved this game I want to forever play it until a 3rd one comes out!!!!!  Its really the chat system that knocked off a 10/10 game. If it wasn’t some this that didn’t interfere with the game I would not have cared too much, but it happens. This is still a fantastic game and would recommend it!!!!!!
