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.

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!

Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army 2

I know what you guys are probably thinking. UnicornMuffin, why are you doing this game? It’s not scary. Not at all. You’re right. It’s not. But it is a spooky scary theme. What’s scarier than Zombies? Nazi Zombies. But this is one of my favorite sequel type games to a fun FPS Stand alone game.

You are a member of an elite group of group of fancy snipers who were sent out during WW2. Close to the end of the war, Hitler decided to unleash his final weapon. Zombies. Only you, with the guns and others, can defeat this army. Or so the story says. I played with my friends because I really don’t trust NPC’s in games like this. Sometimes they go out of their way to ruin your chance at winning. It’s like “Hey I”m going to stand over here in this bush and do something”. Ugh. I mean sometimes playing with people have the same response but at least you can unfriend these people.

When you wake up, your find yourself in Hell. Well I’m assuming it’s hell. It’s full of Zombies and fire. You think you’re safe, but no. You are never safe. You are sent through mazes and buildings and tanks and everything else you can think Zombies can throw at you. Except limbs. They don’t throw those at you.  I wish, you know how cool that would be? “Braiiiin….oh who am I kidding? ARMS AWAY!” Unlike a lot of zombie games, these little shits sneak up on you when you least expect it. Pile of Bones? ZOMBIES! Huge tree? ZOMBIES! Eyes tired? ZOMBIES. Yeah…be prepared for Zombies, everywhere you can think of.

Did I mention heads exploding? I don’t think I did. Well they do. Organs burst out from the abdomen, heads bursting with brains! What’s not to love? Unless you don’t like gore…and if you don’t like gore, why do you want to play a ZOMBIE SHOOTER? I guess the world may never know or something.  I’m a big fan of when you shoot someone you want to see the blood guts and gore. Nothing like a rolling head in the morning, am I right? I am right.

Anyways, The controls are typical of a PC FPS. WSAD and click to fire. I found that you have to watch where you step. I would go to tun away from Zombies only to get caught on something silly and almost die while my mates went on with out me. My undying gratitude to these guys. The scope system is super nice but sometimes it was a little cheating. I didn’t notice the scope waving around like you , well…you were a zombie. I enjoy the more realistic scopes but sometimes during times like this easier scopes make it nice. I mean you are an Elite Sniper.

With everything becoming more about the Zombie Apocalypse, can you really afford not to start training now as a elite Sniper? I sure hope you can’t! There are so many vital bits of information regarding the zombies, Hitler and the world war itself. A lot of the game is realistic. I say that because the anatomy of your enemies  is very accurate to that of an actual living human being.

 

I liked this game, graphics and all. I enjoyed relying on my  (ex)friends for help and killing in the zombies. I give this game 7/10 brains. It’s a nice gam ebut some of the tiny bugs like getting caught and stuff caused me to die a few times. That wasn’t too much fun, but I wish I became a Zombie and so I could take over the world with my brainless allies and then…Well..that’s for an other time.

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!

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 =(

Super Monday Night Combat

I can’t begin to think of where I want to start with this game. It’s just that awesome! I think I will begin with what the game is, that’s a good start.

 

Super Monday Night Combat or Super MNC for short is a third person Shooter meets Dungeon Defenders. You can pick from a few players if you just start the game, and you have the option to purchase new characters, upgrades outfits ect with real money or money you gather and earn as you play. Your goal is to protect your money ball from insane robots that will jump at the opportunity to destroy you.

You get to build turrets as well as shoot the robots. I prefer the assassin they have which is an up close and personal fighter, which can be a bit problematic at times due to the fact some of the robots hurt..really really bad.

The game play is quite simple, and it didn’t take me too long to get the controls down and be a super awesome killer. I didn’t have any lag at all with the settings on high. Another thing I should mention is that it is an Unreal engine game. So you know it has to be awesome =D

 

There are several different types of characters you can pick when you first start. You have a general gunner, a touch tank type gunner, an up close and personal fighter and you also have a healer. Each character has a few different weapons you can choose from as well as some different moves and character specific talents you can choose from. For example, The Assassin has knife for close comabt and a Shuriken Shooter for ranged fighting. For specialites, she has a super jump, a cloaking device, and a smoke cloud. You also get a pretty awesome finishing move if you get the right timing.

 

As the levels go on in the game, it gets progressively harder and harder to keep the ball up in the air and away from robots. We played the game with just 3 people and when we got to the giant chicken round, we didn’t fair too well as there were too many robots for our turrets to handle, and we were all up on a different platform trying to kill the chicken. However, you can invite up to 9 people to play with you or against you, depending on your style. We felt like if we had more people we could have done ok. But all in all it was fun and a good laugh.

The graphics were pretty cool for how simple the game is. The effects for the weapons, when you summon or repair a turret as well as the robots were pretty awesome. I really liked them because they were simple but still pretty awesome. When you lose, your ball explodes into so many coins and a weird guy dances on top of it, taunting you. Haha…Yeah the guy kind of gave me nightmares but anyways!

 

The music is pretty cool too, it’s upbeat and really keeps you in the mood to want to play more. I did have to turn it down a little though because I found that it overpowdered EVERYTHING. I had a hard time hearing my Skype call as well as when a character calling for help.

 

Over all, it was a super fun game and something we will play when we have some time to spare. It has a decent replay value as you can unlock things by just playing the game and earning coins. And another awesome note about the game: TOTALLY FREE!!!!!!!! All you need is a steam account =D How freaking cool!!!!

 

Overall, I give the game 8/10 Lily Points. The game is as pretty as it is difficult and the fact that you can play to unlock is a really cool feature =D If you want to check it out, here’s the link (http://store.steampowered.com/app/104700/)

Dementium: The Ward

**** There is a spoiler in this review, If you don’t wish to have the game spoiled for you, please skip the Story section. I marked it for you guys so you can skip it! ****

 

You wake up, in a dark place with nothing, No music. No anything. Your first instinct is to find out what the hell is going on right? As soon as you leave the room, you notice you have terrible night vision so you pull out your flashlight so you can see further. But wait…what’s that sound?

HOLY CRAP!

 

This has to be one of the scariest games I have played. They did an amazing job on the design, enemy creature creation as well as the story. And to add more as to how awesome this game was to me: It’s on the DS.

You wake up in a room all by yourself with little to your name. You have a flashlight and a pistol, your goal is to find..someones daughter? Yeah, not the best goal in a game but you go with the flow.

The graphics are, to me, what made the game scary. They were perfect and as 3D as you could get. Each mob was covered in blood or scales or something spooky that you couldn’t see until they were in your light. Did I mention the light flickers sometimes?

The game play I found to be difficult at times. Not only do you aim with your stylus, the game is also realistic. You have no armor all you are wearing, I’m assuming based on the story, is a hospital gown, so you take a lot of damage that does not regenerate over time unless you find pills. Ammo is a but scarce too depending on the difficulty you are playing. Lucky for you you have the option of picking up some melee weapons to use when you run out of bullets.

Mobs and chatacter. The mobs are scary to me. They come out of nowhere. With your limited vision, even with the flash light, they can sneak up on you, out of nowhere. You’ll be walking down a hall and suddenly you’ll hear the moaning of a zombie or the weird chirping of the weird worm things. Bosses are huge, ugly and tough if you don’t know what they can do.

You don’t know a lot about who you are playing until you play the story. For all you know when you start, you could be a psychotic patient that has gone completely insane over time and you’re in hell.

**SPOILER** The story. With every scary game comes a scary story? Sure. Why not. It turns out that you are a brain surgery patient. Your awesome surgeon thinks your mind is in danger so he puts you in a nightmare where you have to fight for your life, and end the dreams. Through out the dream, there are mentions of a man who, like i said, killed his wife and his daughter. The..hell? Anyways as you finish the game it ends with a man standing over a dead woman with a gun, Police shoot and wound the man and that’s it. The end?

 

In 2009 however, they released a sequel to the game, Dementium II. If you liked the first game, get it.

 

I give this game a 8/10 spooky Lily points. If you like getting spooked, ambushed and exploring a creepy hospital get it. I enjoyed it very much, even when I jumped in my college’s hallways =D
