Overwatch

Before I wanted to do this review, I wanted to actually sit and play this game for awhile to get a real taste of the release, before patches are made. This is about a week late. We had a lot going on…My chinchilla got hurt and we had to take care of him for awhile but everything is better now! So, let’s get started!!!

 

Overwatch. A game that’s had a lot of Hype as well as a lot of controversy.  For those who are unaware, Overwatch is a FPS release by Blizzard entertainment. You have 21 heroes you can pick from and 12 randomly picks maps with 4 different play styles, minus the practice ring. I will say, that I am not a big FPS fan, but I fell in love with this game. I like all the aspects so far, but I’m nervous about the patch notes. I’ve been a blizzard fan for awhile, but some of their patches…:/ But that’s for another time 🙂 Like Legion.

 

21 Hero Street

21 unique heroes, from numerous countries,  that bring a unique feel to the game. You can’t go wrong with any of them, unless you choose Bastion (Or like 4 of them on one team…yeah screw you). There are several Heroes right now that are OP, but there are several that take some skill to play. Each character has an attack, and alt attack and finally an Ult attack. Unless you’re a healer then you have a Heal, ect ect ect….Mercy (Heroes should die when it’s the opposite team). You have about five different “kinds” of Heroes. Offense (high Damage), Tank, Defense(Low Damage), Support, Bastion.  Lily, what do you have against Bastion? You’ve never played the game if you don’t know…

 

Any who, the different ranks, really make the game. The Offense and Defense pretty much self explain themselves. You have Heroes who just BLAST away their enemies, with out a Tracer…then you have the heroes that aren’t meant to do a lot of damage but can still hurt, the Dragon eats all enemies. Tanks are almost a must for certain types of games, and My go to right now, if Reinhardt. It’s almost hard to mess up Reinhardt…..yeah that’s probably a lie but eh….He wants to Arm Wrestle soon!

 

My oh My Maps!

 

There are 12 maps, three assigned to different types. Escort (ugh), Assault (Whoot!), Assault/Escort (F’n really?!), Control (AWE YEAH). You travel around the world for every map, where you’re then asked to summon your team and do whatever the objective is. Whether you escort a slow truck through Hollywood, or you defend a Meiji style castle from your foes, and bring honor back to your family. I’ve played every map so many times, I’m yearned for more. I can only set up turrets on this one ledge so many times before I just can’t take it anymore. Let’s go over the different map types super fast.

Assault: For those who don’t make a while Bastion Team, this is a map where you and your team either defend or attack certain points across the map. Who ever has the most points win the game.

Escort: Do I really need to go over this? You know, you follow this thing around and protect it.

Assault/escort: Literally combine the other two maps.  Defend a point, then escort something then DEFEAT!

Control: My favorite map type so far! You control points, contest them and VICTORY!

 

I hope they add more maps, and more game typed.

 

To game or not to game? That is the Bastion.

My beef with Bastion. I’m going to lay this out for you, but I wanted to talk about the game a little. Bastion is a very OP character, and it seems to be a “noob” character in my opinions. I say this because Bastion has three forms, I call them Mobile assault, Turret and Tank. Screw every single one of these. I only play him when we’re in dire need of a big push but I tend to stick to other characters.

 

My Overview

 

I love this game. I didn’t think I was going to, but it was an awesome surprise when I installed the game and loaded it. I may lose a lot, but that doesn’t turn me away at all. It just means I get to play again. This game has its ups and downs.  Your team and Teamwork will literally make or break the game, or being cheap.  Meh, Bastion.

 

I give this game a 8/10. Once the first patch comes out, I will edit this review and post another one. I’m interested to see what’s going to happen next patch.

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?

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!

Destiny

I want to apologize for not posting a review last week. A lot has been going on but fingers crossed it’s all better now! I’ve had time to play Destiny. Oh man, I’ve been waiting FOREVER to write this review. I may be late but here I go! A heads up, this review may contain spoilers.

 

This review has been in the making for a while now, since I heard about the game I knew this would be a keeper. I’m going to say right now, this is in the top 5 games. I feel like the game is worth the money and will be worth it even more with the seasonal pass.

 

The storyline is different but has an eerie Halo feel. It’s almost like the same Company…Oh they did!! Well, It starts off with you behind dead and be revived by your Ghost, voiced by Peter Dinklage. I won’t lie, During the Beta I was super excited to hear his voice. I feel it was perfect for a Ghost! As you go on you discover more things about what had happened during the period you were dead.  The storyline is very detailed and doesn’t stray away at any point. It sticks with the story and character.  My one major complaint right now is that once you finished the story, you’re kind of stuck since there is nothing released yet. Now the game feels like a major grind.

 

Once you finish the story, like I said above. The game turns into a grind, especially if you don’t get to 20. You can chose to do patrols, which basically means  running around an area you have been before killing, collecting and transmitting data over and over again. I found them to be fun, then I didn’t have to grind them out for a level. Public events also grant a lot of experience as well. it’s just a matter of being there when they  happen. You can chose to do PvP for exp at any point in the story line. I’m all for PvP but my one down side is that they don’t scale down. If you’re a level 13 you may be paired with a Level 25. You can expect to get a little owned in that match.

 

You can unlock new spaceships and sparrows various ways.  Pre order gave you a new Sparrow, a red one. I like it except for I can’t take a hit to save my life on it. One wrong turn and it’s bye bye Birdie! To me, right now spaceship mods mean nothing in the sense of Purpose. They all just feel like a visual improvement. I’m hoping they add something where modifications actually mean something other then Oh hey my ship is prettier than yours.

 

Weapons have the same feel as they do in Halo and other Bungie Games. I haven’t noticed that you have to arch anything except grenades, and that’s OK to me.  It’s fun to look up at the sky, throw your grenades and watch them destroy your enemy. I do wish the cool down wasn’t as long though. But that’s OK. Gives me more time to kick butt and take names later.

 

For a console game, I found it to be visually pleasing. Some time if you turn your camera wrong, it goes out of focus on certain parts. For example when you’re in the Tower and you’re trying to see your character’s face, it becomes super blurry and all you see if two bright blue orbs glowing in the sea of fuzzy….Won’t lie, that kind of creeped me out the first time it happened.

 

Even with all of the problems I have personally with the game. This is one of the best comebacks I’ve seen from Bungie. It brought back old memories from Halo and well and made new ones.  My, honest, only problem is that cut scenes aren’t skipable. That’s annoying when You’ve already played through the story and want to go back through to help a friend out or even for the experience. Once you’re done with the quest, there you are stuck watching a cut scene that you’ve seen before. It’s annoying, but eh.

 

I give this game happily a 10/10. Just because I found parts of this game annoying or even unattractive doesn’t mean that you guys will. This has to be one of my favorite games for 2014. It has a high replay value as you can experience it as different classes. The community for the most part seems to be kind and polite. They help out when they can and they really work well together as a team.

Titanfall: Beta

I have been waiting for this game for awhile now and I had the chance to play in the Beta! Now, you may be asking “Why are you talking about a Beta? What happened to the NDA?”  Well, the creators have no issued a NDA, they want people to stream, talk about and just enjoy the game! Everyone should be able to enjoy this game. This is what I plan on doing! So here we go!

If you have not had the chance to hear about this game, then you may be in for a wonderful treat! This is the perfect mix of some pretty awesome games from Call of Duty to Halo. You are in charge of a Titanfall, a giant Mecha with awesome guns and cool powers! The Titanfall has this telekinesis power you can use to stop rockets being launched at you and what not.

When not in a Titanfall, you are a pilot with a pistol that auto-locks on your targets, yes multiple targets. With one pull of your trigger, your pistol can take down multiple enemy or just a single enemy hitting all of their vital parts.

The tutorial goes into vast details about your weapons, Titanfall and how to use everything to it’s potential. I really felt like I was being trained to go on a real life mission.

 

Lastly, the PvP seemed very fair, and very realistic. There were some people who seemed to be cheating but that did not ruin my game at all! It was very enjoyable. When it comes to the realistic points, if you were to come into contact with a Titanfall and it was to step on you, well you’re kind of dead.

 

This game was very well planned out and the people who made it showed a very obviously they wanted to make a great game!

This review is slightly vague, I know, but I want you to play this game! I want you to experience everything about this game!

I give this beta a 9/10!

Natural Selection 2

This game has to be one of my favorite games from 2012.  It is the perfect mix of animal like aliens and well formed groups of Marines. At first, I was a little skeptic as I am an avid Halo Fan and have always felt that games with Marines and Aliens were all knock offs. However, after taking the time to play, this game is in a league of it’s own!

 

There is only one major complaint I have about this game, you sit on the loading screen for awhile, but once you are past that you get put in a room where you get to choose who you want to play as. Aliens or Humans! I played as both so here’s a basic break down.

 

If you choose to play as Aliens, you spawn in a room that looks like some sort of Fungus took over. It reminded me of the Zerg caps in Starcraft. As you play more and get more points you can evolve into more powerful aliens. Your goal is to destroy the human basecamp and stay alive.  You have the option to climb walls as well as air vents!

 

Now, if you decide to play Humans you have an all new set of skills and upgrades available to you. You have the option of having an commander, that is like BattleField 4 where one person can see the whole map and gives directions and helps out their team to successfully guard their base from the evil aliens! You can use the points you get to but better weapons and other items used to repair damaged equipment.

 

The game in itself is very nice looking. Each area is very unique in its own way. A perfect example is when you start off as an Alien. As you wander further away from your spawn point, the fungus slowly vanishes and you’re back at the human military base. Everything and everyone in the game is very detailed, down to the rotten teeth inside the Alien’s mouth! I could almost smell the decay when I was an Alien.

 

The game play in itself was very easy to master quickly. One problem I had was, if you played Human you upgraded a lot faster than the aliens and the game play became very uneven very quickly. In the 12 bites it would take an alien to down a human, it would take one bullet after a few upgrades. It seems to be a very one sided game.

 

The community for this game is also very uptight. The game that I was in, my team commander was very demanding and got very upset easily. It almost made it unpleasant. It seemed that the Alien side of the group was more well mannered, and I wish I could have been one.

 

All in all, I really enjoyed playing this game even though I spent a majority of the time sitting on a loading screen staring at the map I was going to be on.  I give this game a 6/10. Paying $24.99 USD to sit  on the same screen forever, no matter the beauty and funa game has, is never fun for anyone.

Contagion: Survival Shooting

If you really liked the Left 4 Dead* games then you will enjoy Contagion! This game was well put together and thought out by it’s creators. There are some elements that don’t make a lot of sense but you have that with a few games. I really enjoyed playing this game with my friends, and a few strangers.

When you start the game, you get the option to play on line with others or to start a new game for yourself. No matter what option you chose, you can pick between a few different characters, there were about 6 I believe. Each characters adds a new element to the story and made it easier to play with others. I was very fond of this one female character who was  a Biologic Engineer. She added some cool Technology to the game!

When you play with other people, that seems to be the most fun. You get to play Versus. Versus seems to be a Free for All. You can choose to work with other players or murder them and make sure you are the last survivor. But watch out, if you decide to betray your comrades, they come back as Zombies that are out to kill you! I got to play as both, and I must say, being a Zombie was pretty fun! I think I had more fun being a Zombie than I did a Survivor. I did miss shooting guns and such, but come on….You can seek revenge on the person that killed you and make them one of us! ONE OF US!

The guns are pretty accurate. I got to play with a few different guns starting with the basic hand gun. I also got to play with a Sniper Rifle and a Uzi. All three of these guns were accurate with both the sound and the point and shoot aspect of each individual gun.  The only problem I had was, you can’t reload when there are Zombie Around, so if you run out of Ammo and there’s a zombie just walking around, uh oh. Better hope he doesn’t find you!

All around, the graphics were really nice. Some of the animations are kinda eh, like when you’re a zombie and you run…that’s kind of weird. But Other then that I really enjoyed the game visual wise!

All and all, this game is pretty good! I’d like to play a lot more of it with my friends! It is $14.99USD to play. But it is on sale right for for $7.49USD .I encourage you guys to pick it up! The link is down below! If I had to rate this game, I would happily give it 7/10 Liy Points =D It is a fun game but the reload feature cost my life a few times =(
