Fire Emblem: Three Houses

So, this is a review that I really wanted to wait for because I quite literally wanted to make sure I played this game so I could write about everything you can do. Oh man, it’s worth it I promise.

So, going to be honest with you I have go to play most parts of this game, the only thing I couldn’t get to yet was the Marriage. So when I get to this part, I will post an update 😀

This is my first Fire Emblem game since the GameCube, so when I saw this was coming out for the switch I was excited! The storylines are just how i remember. They’re super detail orientated as well as let you go your own path if you want. There is just so much to do in this game that it’s just so hard to make a review.

So let’s start with the story. It’s amazing. The amount of everything they included is great. Each month there’s always something going on whether it’s a fight or a party. Every character seems to have a very special role in the game as well. They’re not just thrown in there to take up space. As you go on with the game, and listen and pay attention you can find out what makes everyone tick. Each house leader had their own problems as well and as they grow, they effect the outcome of your game. All in all with out spoiling anything (since the game has so much replay and so much to do ) it’s well worth the money.

When you interact with the other people in the game, you can hurt or make a relationship with them. If you don’t care to know anything about anyone, you might not have a good reputation with them, and they wont help you out. However, if you take the time to learn the likes and dislikes of certain people you can end up getting them into you House. I’ve done that with a few people that weren’t in a house, and it makes combat a lot more fun. I’m just sad to cycle out some people but they always seemed to want nothing to do with learning or anything. So what’s best for the house.

Combat is another amazing thing this game has to offer. the various classes you can pick from and how you get there always makes it an adventure. Each phase in the game is turn based when it comes to combat. You have a few options to pick from when it comes to that. The trick to this is to know what type of play style you’re doing, who can best support that and if they’re capable of doing that.

Now, I am more of a fan of RTS and not Turn based, but I like how they did it. You basically have two options, you can do the strategy yourself or you can select the AI to do it you. When you select the character you want to move, they give you a few options you can do, where you can how and who you can attack. You can even select them to heal if they can obviously.

All in all, this game is amazing. The story and the combat really makes it great. The amount of ways you can interact with the characters and students in the game are numerous. From tea parties to giving them a simple present. Nothing at the moment can beat this game.

With everything being said, this game is a total 10/10. This is a game that I can’t seem to fault, even when I lose a fight. It’s so easy to see your mistake and learn from it, or see several mistakes and learn. I can’t seem to put this game down, and the replay value is there. If I dare say, this is a GOTY.

Cat Quest

Have you ever wanted to be a cat? Like seriously. A tiny little cat, with an amazing power…or do you think that Legend of Zelda games would be better as a kitten trying to save his sister?! No? Well….I think you’re wrong. Just saying. hehe

So this game was one of those random ones on my list. I’ve heard about it, and frankly I thought it was a myth until it showed up at my work the other day and I just knew I had to play it. So that’s what I did.

The storyline is rather adorably dark. You and your sister are out alone on a boat and then a big bad guy decides your sister is very important and then takes her, and tells you to shove off and then you wake up on a shore with a strange mark on your head and a weird Navi type cat is like “HEY LISTEN”

So, it’s a quasi open world adventure game where you get to play as cute little kittens and you fight various creatures, take on fun puzzles and grow your strength and your magic. It starts off with a great tutorial and really let you do things at your own pace for the most part. When you look into the new towns, there’s quite a few things you can do. You can sleep (you literally fall on the ground and it’s too cute) upgrade/purchase new magic spells and just talk to the different catizens and learns a bit more about the place.

The world scales rather nicely as you level. You can tell when something is a little bit more difficult but it’s literally nothing a little piece of armor or a new magic spell can’t solve. You really have to use the skills you’ve learned when you go after some enemies and I like that I have to e on my toes.

Honestly, I absolutely love this game and I have recommended it to everyone that is looking for a fun new game to play on their switch. Now, I am also aware that the game is a few years old, but I apologize for nothing. This is a great game and it has provided me with a lot of fun and I felt it was worthy of a review. So here you go. This is my review haha

I give this game a purr-fect score of 9/10 I loved this game. It kept me entertained long enough that i lost track of time and went to bed later than I usually do haha. It really knew how to suck me in and was worth the time.

This game is available on all platforms so just look it up 😀

Don’t forget to check out all of my other links n stuff and like share subscribe ect. There is a huge update that’s going to be made here on Saturday so keep in touch!!!

Pokemon Let’s go

So hi guys! I am not dead haha. The curse of being a retail worker has caught up with me and with Black Friday this week I have been forced to focus on my job than playing games. I know I know. It sucks but that’s what happens when you make money haha. But that’s ok. I’m going to start off by saying, I have had a lot of requests for Fallout 76. It’s going to be a bit before I get the game. I’m having flashbacks from ESO with this game…I’m sorry. I do plan on purchasing BO4 here shortly, but enough of that. Let’s get into this review.

 

For those of you who know me, then you’re aware of how much of a Pokemon fan I am. I remember pulling out my TCG and trading them on the playground, or fighting my friends and kicking their butt. I remember getting my first card. It was Ponyta. I got it because my friend knew I like horses, and he had an extra one he could give me. Ever since then, I have loved the series. Something about it, the fact I could do about anything in the game, whether it was to be a trainer, or a breeder. You could learn about all the different Pokemon and felt like YOU were actually changing the world. It was a lot of things that made this game and series special for me.

 

I have been waiting for this game for awhile, and when I finally got my hands on it, I was elated. Why do you ask? Because the new ideas the game had, and the way it makes the game feel to old veteran players, just spoke it me. It spoke the words of love. As I’m sitting here writing this review, I can’t stop but think I could be playing the game instead of typing on my laptop telling you guys how I feel about this game. But at the same time, I could also be playing the game now and typing one handed. You don’t know what I’m doing. You don’t know me!

 

Haha all joking aside, let’s get into this review. The story line, is basically the same from the first games, and the remakes.  Stop Team Rocket while you defeat your rival and Blue even shows up to make you feel like you’re doing things. I really like the old school feeling as well as the feel of some of the newer games. Not only do I get to relive my childhood in 3d, I get one of my favorite Pokemon to follow me through my journey.  I rather enjoy the little tidbits or lore, and other story ideas that are added to the game as well. Reading the different dialog from the different people are fantastic.

 

So what makes the dialog so neat? They refer to the other games, and the other regions.  For example, I came across a trainer that was from the Alolan area, and she talked about how she missed the beauty that was there, but the water on this place is almost as pretty.  The nods to previous games, and to the current ones make it worth talking to everyone.  But, besides talking to people to see what they have to say, some of the special moves from TMs and HMs are only obtainable when you talk to them. So, the idea of having to speak to everyone excites me. I do it anyways, but now I feel like it’s worth it.

 

Battling in this game is different from the other games. Let’s start with Trainer/Gym/other people. The battle system is the same as it has been. You have the same 4 moves, and there’s some fancy animations for each move. They did add some elite trainers you can fight as well as some Coach Trainers that teach you how to do other moves and how to do things during a fight. The Gym leaders are the total same, with some puzzles added in some of the gyms adding to the fun and excitement.

 

When it comes to wild pokemon, this is a bit different. Why do you ask? Because you don’t actually fight them. Now, I know what you’re thinking. “But Lily, I don’t like Pokemon Go, why would I want to play this game if I don’t fight wild pokemon?” Three words for you. Mount Moon Cave. Now, with that being said, let me explain why I like how they changed the wild fights. Instead of walking through tall grass then realizing that you left all your repels in your other bag…Wild Pokemon now just appear and run round so you can avoid them all together and with the actual lack of wild pokemon fights, making them easier to run away from as well. So, now you see why I’m rather fond of this mode.

 

With the addition of the new Pokeball Plus, it gives you the option to really feel like a real trainer with the option to “throw” the ball to catch the pokemon. On top of that, it’s another controller AND a Pokewalker. You know that little devide from Heart Gold ans Soul Silver? Yeah, you can totally take pokemon out with you. They will call out to you for attention an give you gifts along your trip. I couldn’t help but get one of these, and I am so excited that I did!!!

 

All in all, this is a Pokemon game. It’s a great one and perfect for those starting their adventure and veterans alike. I feel like this is a good title, and up there with Super Mario Party and, dare I say, Red Dead Redemption 2. There’s only been a handful of pokemon games that I didn’t know, and only a few I feel very passionate about. This is one of those titles that I am passionate about.

 

Check out the Nintendo website or any game selling store to pick up your copy. If you’re lucky enough, get the ball too! TOTALLY worth it!

 

I give this game 10\10 rare candy. I literally can’t tell you how special this game is to me without sounding like a child. I absolutely enjoy this game and I can’t seem to put it down.  I highly recommend this game if you’re into the series and own a switch!

Black Clover: Quartet Knights

This is one my my underdog animes. It took me a few episodes to get into this, just my My Hero. So when I heard this game was coming out, I couldn’t help but get excited. It’s been awhile since I’ve played an Anime based game or a Japanese fighting game so I was super stoked when I got a hold of a copy.  I couldn’t wait to pop this bad boy in my PS4 and sit on the couch and play it!

 

So after I waited a long ass time for the game to install, and beat several dungeons on WoW in the mean time, I was excited to hit the X button (I think? Idk man controllers confuse me) and watched the credits roll and then BAM intro movie started. I was sitting on the edge of my couch right now, holding that controller watching in awe as an Anime I love came to life where I controlled what happened!

 

This game literally throw you into combat right as you start the game. You get a well made animation did some explaining with the story before it throws you back into a fight with Mars, and from there you fight a lot of familiar faces from the Anime like Vetto, Fana and Licht!

 

Each character has their own magic style like in the show and manga but to be it differed a lot from them as well. Now, yes I understand there are limitations with a controller and even a keyboard and that the wide range of spells everyone knows from the show/manga can’t be condensed into several buttons and such.. This isn’t what I’m getting at. What I am trying to say, is I noticed when I was fighting Vetto, it didn’t FEEL like the beast magic. I didn’t FEEL like he was the rhino or whatever animal that freaky dude becomes.

 

The same went for a lot of the other people, Asta has a few new moves that almost seem magical and Yami….for the sake of him not trying to kill me. Yami is the best IMO. He feels like what a Captain should be. I haven’t had the chance to play with many other characters but when I do, I wil revise this review. I also haven’t played online at all because I don’t have the extra funds to pay for online time. IMO waste of money, but we’ll talk about that sometime maybe.

 

So let’s get into the story. I had an interesting time trying to figure out when this was in the time line. But, this seems to be taking place with the anime in a sense but could also be an alternate timeline? Did they learn from Blizzard?! I hope not…at least when you play BC, it feels like your’e actually part of the story and you have to save Clover Kingdom from all of the bad stuff, but I also feel like they kind of just threw Mars in, and extra characters for the sake of having them. I’m not saying this is a terrible idea, I rather like that you learn a little bit more on the lore of the game. After all, I am the Loremaster and my learning never ceases no matter what I am playing.

 

I like the storyline, a lot. Like more than I thought I was going to as Blizzard left a weird taste in my mouth after WoD and Alternate time lines and yeah….But I like it. I like the new characters they added and I liked how everyone was involved someway or another and it just made it worth it IMO!

 

So, let’s talk about the combat. As someone that has not played on console in a long time, it was hard for me to get back in the grove of not having a mouse and keyboard to move fight ect. What made it worse is it was a PlayStation contoler, and I will be honest, besides the mouse and keyboard, I am use to the xbox controller. So I feel like I was at a disadvantage, heh. But once I sat down and got used to everything, combat was a lot easier. It took awhile for me to keep my thumb on the camera stick so at first, I couldn’t ever keep an eye on my enemies and it would cause me to almost lose! Now that’s not good for a Knight!

 

Boiling it down, you have a basic of 4 attacks using all of the differnet triggers then one special one that is triangle? I think that’s the shape.  Anyways, the biggest struggle for me was the use of the camera angle. Now call me Old Fashion but I dislike the full control of the Camera and to me, it causes problems. Now, thought I dislike this, I still very much enjoy the game. Again, once I got used to the controls, the game is so much fun (hell even when I didn’t get them down I was still having fun)

 

The last thing I wanted to talk about was the graphics. I mentioned above, I was greeted by an amazing cut scene that looked like it was straight from the anime. On top of that, it had amazing graphics both the pre combat and during combat scenes.  I was a little iffy on this style honestly, there are a few games that use it and I feltit took away from the game and what it was but honestly, I really want to say that it matched it perfectly and I loved it!

 

Though I had a rough start with the game  i love it! The amount of characters you can chose from and the storyline really make you feel like you’re part of the game!  This totally gets 8/10 sheep!  (I love Charmy js)

Final Thoughts: WoW: Legion

With the fall of the Burning Legion, this chapter of World of Warcraft is coming to an end. With the rise of war and a psycho Warchief, the next expansion is dropping this week, making this one of the best times to give my final thoughts on this expansion, and my hopes for the next one.

 

I’m going to start with the story. You really got an in depth look into some of the Lore that was unseen between the Second War and The Burning Crusade. You get an in depth look into the Illidari as well as Illidan himself.  I have always been in support that Illidan was just misunderstood, and it turns out I was correct. He did everything he could to save the world, and in the end, he sacrificed himself to end the Burning Legion. and keep Azeroth alive (well for the most part)

 

We also get a glance at the end of the First War, where Turalyon and Alleria went through the portal to fight of the Orcish Horde and then vanished. (At least that’s how the book ended ;P ) Well they came back, with a vengance. Seeing them, and their hatred for the Orcs/Horde was real. This is coming from someone who doesn’t main a Paladin or see’s The Light, it was fascinating to watch Turalyon become blinded by faith forcing a few and Illidan to work for the light.

 

There was just so much lore, and so much that filled in several holes the game had, and helped explain a few more things. To witness the Prince’s suffering and to see why he did what he did, or to help Odyn and watching the rebellion of Suramar, there was just so much it’s hard to write about it with out well, making it a lore post. Heh. But that’s for a stream ;P

 

So the gameplay is rather important. They added Artifact Weapons that came equipted with Artifact powers to make them powerful (which now they’re broken and useless ugh) Each weapon came with it’s own Backstpry that tied into the Lore and really made you feel special, until of course you came across another one of your class with the same weapon, but that’s an MMO for you. All in wall, once more then dumbed down the play style.

 

I main a Guardian Druid, as you know, and I literally only used around 6 buttons, and 2 buffs before they got rid of one with the loss of my artifact weapon. Thought I liked the idea of it being simpler to play the class, I do miss the use of stragety and a REAL rotation that I’ve had to do for years. But with the increase of new players, and the loss of the Vanilla players, I can see the why they’re going. I may not agree, but that’s just me ( I hope).

 

 

With the close of Legion. I honestly feel that I literally saved the world, and I am the hero. Well I did. So what changed? War of Thorns, the Battle for Azeroth Pre launch updates. I have never felt like I didn’t do something in the world. And the writing for this, made it really hard for me to feel like I did something. The story line really kept me into the game and it made it a lot of fun to go through the different areas and explore, capture pets and quests. It almost felt like BC for a second, before I realized I wasn’t level 60-70 and I could do what I want, when I want.

 

 

So, why do I feel this way? For those who haven’t played the pre launch and care about it, don’t go on. Please note Legion gets a 8/10 from me. I loved the lore and the game play and It’s a wow expansion. I will forever play this game until the day the shut the servers down. Don’t forget to check out Worldofwarcraft.com to check out more info about Legion as well as get your copy of BFA today 😀

 

Now, for those who don’t care about spoilers, here we go. As you are aware, in the pre launch Sylvanas burns down Teldrassil. Now why is this a thing? Why does this make me feel terrible? Let’s start on the Horde Side. You end up killing a lot of innocent people, people you could have saved. Not to mention Syl felt like she really needed to off her own army to prove a point that she could bring back the dead and use them for her own bidding. Like really? You really needed to kill YOUR OWN PEOPLE?! WTF?!?!?!

 

The Alliance side wasn’t much better if I’m going to be totally honest with you guys. Sure, you don’t do as much killing as the Horde, but you’re literally left with the feeling that you’re not a hero. You couldn’t save all of the people in Darnassus. I felt like a total failure, allowing so many people to burn alive. I actually started to question if I should keep playing a Night Elf. It really hit close to home.

 

Blizz really hit some grey areas at the end of Legion, and those made me really think about how I felt about where I am, and who I am. I actually kind of liked it. I liked that I still am emotionally involved with this game, and I wouldn’t change it for anything. The lore, storytelling and even the people in the game keep me here.

 

With the close of this expansion, the doors open to a new horizon. The new areas, allied races and raids ect are exciting. So far I am really liking the two that are already in the game and I can’t wait to expedience the new ones they have lined up. The full idea of the allied races is amazing and I am anxious to see what they have planned. Holy undead maybe? Who knows, they have so much to work with lore wise, it’s going to be an interesting road.

With that being said, those are my thoughts and Legion, I can’t wait to see what BFA has in store for us, both Horde and Alliance.

FOR THE KING!

Skyrim Switch Edition

So boy, I don’t know what I was expecting with this title. Skyrim has been so over done with remakes, re-releases, and the faint hope there may be another TES game in the near future vanishing.  But, nevertheless, I went in to this with positive mindset before it slowly changed to a “what am I doing with me life”  and curled under my sheets and sighed.

I personally don’t believe this should be a thing. Yes, Skyrim is a great game, worthy of all of it’s titles and mods ect. I don’t believe it should be a thing on the switch, or next gen. consoles because WE NEED A NEW TES GAME! Stop beating a dead horse and put out the next game please, Bethesda! PLEASE I AM BEGGING YOU! Nocturnalsave me if it’s coming out on the DS I’m gonna…*coughs* Sorry. I’m composed now.  So, back to this…game.

 

It’s Skyrim. That’s about all you need to know story wise. Same stupid intro scene, same dragon trying to kill you all, same choices as to who to follow and same quests for the most part from what I’ve played. There’s not much more to say about this. If you’ve played Skyrim you’ve well played Skyrim.

 

So what’s different that made you regret your life choices, Lily? Quite a few things. Let’s start with character customization. Everything was preset, nothing was truly customizable.  Perfect example, if you know me then you know that I play Khajiit. Tsa’Musa is my baby and has been since the Khajiit was a playable race.  I’ve tried to make them similar because I mean why not? Anyways! Back to the review! There was around 4 colors to choose from, 6 different eyes (3 colors with 2 different pupils) and 8 Hair styles (4 different cuts and same cuts with different earrings). When you go to customize the face, it’s literally all preset noses, mouths lips ect.  So, I mean I get it. It’s a tiny port, you can’t add everything. But still could have literally added more colors, more pupils ect ect ect. :/

 

So now, let’s talk controls! Holy Laggy joycon Batman! It was so difficult to move, fight and jump. It was really sad. I mean every other game I’ve never had problems with, but it just seems like this was a rushed, messy port and just needed some more love. It had the potential to be fantastic and a great way to slay the dragon’s while on the toilet or hiding in the back room being the best Dark Brotherhood Assassin in all of Tamriel.

 

All in all, I took it as a mobile game. But I didn’t expect it to be toned down THAT much. This game needs more love. It really does.

 

I give this game 7/10 Sweet Roles. I’m partial to Bethesda, and TES games. But I’m disappointed with everything else with the game that made it Skyrim. So please, Bethesda. TESVI TESVI TESVI TESVI TESVI TESVI TESVI !!!!!!!!

 

Want to try this out on your switch? You can go to most retailers and purchase it , or if you think you’re going to just purely love this game, you can purchase it  from Nintendo directly: https://www.nintendo.com/games/detail/the-elder-scrolls-v-skyrim-switch

South Park: Fractured but Whole

It feels like I’ve been waiting three years for this amazing sequel to join my life and give me hope great offensive games are still out there. I mean, not that I got old of running around as the King and farting on everyone and being a master of everything. But I’ve been waiting for this game for quite a long time and I’m happy to have it.

 

I don’t really want to get into too much plot details because I don’t want to spoil this masterpiece for you guys, but I do have to talk about some bits. But I do have to talk about some bits, do bear with me.

 

Cats have gone missing in the town with ample parking day or night and it’s up to Coon and Friends to find the missing cats and defeat Chaos in the process, but you aren’t invited to play.  🙁 But what is the King to do? Crash the super hero party, duh.

 

You start off getting your super powers, at the time there are three to choose from. I went the Blaster Route which seemed to hit quite well but you also have Speedster and Brutalist. Each class has it’s own perks like the Speedster can get two moves while the Brutalist can bash your face in. Each class from then on just adds to the excitement that is the combat system.

 

As you progress through the story you unlock more and more classes which give you quite a bit of customization when it comes to Who are you Douchebag? Who are you really? The classes range from close combat to Ranged with heals. I’m a tank/Ranged DPS Personally so I went with the ranged healing classes I could find. I rather enjoy kicking butt at a safe distance and then healing any damage I, or my group takes.

Did I say excitement? I really do mean that. Sometimes though, I will admit, it got very repetitive and when more enemies jump into the fight I did get frustrated but all in all I rather enjoy this combat system. Each character and NPC brings chaos lava and macaroni Star of Davids to the fight to aid them in the fierce battles a head.  To go into the combat more….let’s start with the battlefield. It’s a grid based system much like you would see when you are playing a table top game. Each player has a set amount of moves and their attacks have a certain range. For those “casting” attacks, the areas are marked on the field so you can easily avoid them or cause some friendly fire 😉 Healing in this game is also a lot more fun and almost every class has some sort of heal or can use all the items to heal you or a friend. The best part is YOU control your team!

 

The NPC’s in the battle also act like they are being controlled by a human, scrolling through all their attacks and find the perfect one to destroy you with….or at least try. Bravo guys! This was most def a very imersive system!

The last thing I want to comment on combat wise were the ultimate.  During combat, you have the option after every enemy hitting you, you hit a button and gather power for an ultimate that any of your party can use. One can be used for a major DPS attack, a giant heal or a cute Guinea pig in  Pirates hate. You decide!!! This made me pay attention a little more in combat phases, though sometimes I would drift off.

 

So let’s get back to the story. Like the last game, there are a bunch of side quests you can take to help  get you into the game more as well as enhance it. I rather enjoyed all of the little things like finding the drug lords and collecting all the Yaoi (I just wish there was a gallery for the pictures, some of them were too cute.

The mini game were a lot of fun as well, mastering the toilets and doing some fancy Fartkour really made this a SP game if you ask me. The crude humor is here to stay and it’s nice to see that all of my neighbors are their usual selves and nothing ‘s changed in the 3 days (years?) since the installment. I really enjoy this game, though I’m not sure if there’s replay value. I’d love to toy around with all the classes and everything but we’ll have to see.

 

My only real complaint about this game is the fact that there is a season pass. I get it, this is the direction that video game companies are headed and frankly, I find it distasteful. Now you’re probably saying to yourself…SELF, I know she plays WoW. They release stuff for that you have to pay a lot of money for. And you’re right, reader I do. But when in my honest opinion. If it’s a MMO, I’m fine with paying to expansions ect. But if the game has 0 online interaction, why would I need to buy a season pass? There’s no point? I don’t know, but this grinds me gears.

Give me back the days where when you buy a game it was the full game not the “Full” game plus season passes and micro-transactions out the asshole..

 

But enough standing on my soap box, I’ll save that for my blog.

My poor Fractured butthole enjoyed the time I played, and I recommend this to anyone looking for a fun way to kill some time while you’re waiting for Assassin’s Creed or CoD WW2. This and Shadow of War are good fillers for the next round of games.

 

Dispite my issue with the season pass, this game get’s a 9/20 Yaoi. I really enjoyed this game but I ended up making an active effort to avoid combat due to the fact it got boring when you did it very often. I loved the story, the characters and just the over all view of this game.

Craft the World

Ever wanted to control dwarves and have them do weird things and listen to cute chatter? Then look no further that Craft the World! This neat little side view game is one of my favorite games of the year!! With that being said, let’s get into this!!!!

To me, this is the perfect mix of a few things from Minecraft, Terraria and Dwarves. I really like all of the aspects of this game with regards to the combat styles, the mining and the crafting. I did run into a few bugs, but that didn’t stop me from enjoying the game kind of. It was a game breaking bug in a sense but I will get more into that later.

So, here you are, at the starting portal where you are given a couple dwarves to do your bidding. That’s right, for the most part you are in total control of these people and you can tell them to dig, build eat sleep etc ect. The possibilities are only as limited at well….about 5 maybe 6 items. They can be rather dumb and not get the hint the first time, but their cute little banters and language always got me interested and made me want to learn their language so I can hear them talk bad about me. 😉 Of course, being the almighty one, I am sure I can dish out a nice plate of whoop ass on them.

So. let’s get into some of the aspects of this game, we’ll start with the two that kind of work together, and that would be mining/digging and building/crafting. Each can require training and or pure luck they don’t kill themselves. Though it’s very much fun to watch some of them struggle with the aspect of a ladder or sometimes even using basic tools, it’s more efficient to have a dwarf that’s trained in special abilities to help out when needed. The end game, is literally to craft the best weapons, defeat the waves of undead they send your way, on top of defeating the end boss which is from what I’ve seen very difficult and super skeleton scary. You basically need to find the books which grant your dwarves either levels in a trait, or give them that trait to help you with the end goal, the choice is really yours…

Now, combat is entirely RNG on top of being super frustrating. I can’t tell you how many times I sat there and yelled at my dwarves for being huge scaredy cats for no reason and almost got the base destroyed because they couldn’t handle one little zombie. I couldn’t even imagine what they would do if they met the end boss with them being scared. Now I know in life it’s a literal fight or flight type deal, but when all they do it flight. It gets very annoying. But with that being said, this ties into eating and sleeping. IF there is an enemy in the area, they will stand outside and do nothing but literally complain about being tired and hungry. When you tell them to go eat or sleep they will flat out refuse. Like typical games, when there’s enemies nearby you cannot do certain things.

This is where my beautiful big came in. I was pretty far along in the game when I couldn’t get my guys to sleep or eat. It kept telling me there were enemies in my borders but when I would move around and check them, my bordered would be completely empty, not even a rats nest! My poor guys were almost dead and I had another Zombie Wave coming in 4 minutes and there was nothing I could do but watch my poor guys run for their lives and watch the base I worked so hard for get destroyed by these damn undead! I had to restart my game at this point because no matter what I did, I couldn’t get it fixed. My new game is totally better and I haven’t ran into that problem again so here’s hoping this game is better.

So, I mentioned eating and sleeping. These are both things that you need to keep them up on because they can starve on top of they will not regenerate health. That is something very crucial to this game if you want to survive to the endgame. But there’s nothing you can really make that will do the same thing as food so they have that going for them.

So all in all, I actually rather enjoyed this game minus the fact that I did indeed need to restart my game after spending a few hours on it. I didn’t lose THAT much but it was still rough losing all of that hard work for some dumb glitch.

THe game was easy to follow and really explained things to you as you went on your way. I wouldn’t say that it held your hand, but it walked you through a lot, then would let you go then would come back. I never felt like I would truly be lost in this game.

I give this game a 7/10 dwarves. Though the game is a nice concept I can only build and fight so many times before it looses it’s luster. When you play with other people it’s a competition to see who can beat the bad guy first and you can’t work together on it. The glitch I experienced was also a little frustration but I got over it quickly when I started fresh.

I recommend this game to anyone who has some free time to kill as you can pause the timer and do other things. It’s most definitely a time killer. But it’s fun and that’s all that matters!!

World of Warcraft: Legion

The next, in my opinion, EPIC AWESOME STELLAR expansion came out for World of Warcraft! Now, I wasn’t a big fan of the past two expansions and frankly, I was about to just full on stop playing because I mean, come on. Alternant time time? What’s up with that bull crap!!!! And going back on the whole “We’ll never make Panda’s a playable race.” PFFFFFFTTTTT!!!!!!!!!

 

Now, this may be my inner fan girl screaming, but when I saw that Illidan was going to be a part of this expansion I instantly felt the hype. I mean full on 1000000000% was into this expansion. But then, I had to start thinking like an adult. Was this game going to be worth it? Was it another Alternate timeline? What was going to be in this game? There were a lot of questions, that didn’t have a lot of answered when this game was revealed.

 

So, let’s get into the story line a little bit. Gul’Dan decides he isn’t awesome enough and tries to go after Illidan (Squee) and ends up dying or something of that nature. While, the Emerald Dream gets corrupted with the NIghtmare (that’s some Kingdom Hearts shit right there) and of course. Heroes! We need you to save the world and things!!!!

 

I’m all for this expansion, for quite a few reasons, and have been suggesting this to veterans and new commers a like. The game is great in the fact it’s a new area, a new op class as well as new raids. If you’re all for the MMO aspect of the game, you may be pleased with the return of players, both new and old and young and gnomes. Bleh, gnomes….

Anywhooo….there are so many new things in this game, that it’s a little hard to actually talk into detail about every single thing, but I’m going to start with the fanciest of the things.

 

Artifact weapons. Now, I know what you’re saying. Look, LIly. I get it. It’s the all mighty weapon that I’ll use for a few levels then I’ll get rid of it for this epic lootz that drops from this boss.

Nope. The artifact weapon is literally only as good as the time you put into it. You get Artifact power and runes that empower them and give you special perks. The best part about these weapons is that they each have a neat little background story that helps tie them into lore. Though some of them are fatfetched. A lore master like myself,can appreciate them a little bit and I was excited to learn about the new pieces.

 

Demon hunters are now a thing. You fought one back in Burning Crusade. But now, you ar eable to play them and be a tank or DPS. Now, I know what a lot of people thought, it’s another DK scandal. To be honest. Yes. There are a lot of people who are playing Demon hunter. Yes, they are a little OP and can do a lot of shit solo. But, at the very same time. For the moment being, it’s pretty neat being an acrolyte for Illidan and helping stop the legion from pouring into the world until…..*the next is spoiilers so I wont talk about them* (edit, since legion has been out for awhile I will add that you get captured by the wardens only to be released to help save the world and you get to prove your worth to the world)

 

Class halls/Order Halls

 

So this is a literal copy and paste from the Garrison in WoD. After they promised us it wouldn’t be. I do feel a little lied to with this. I mean come on. I don’t want to do this shit! The only way to make your weapon epic…Class hall shit. Only way to get certain quests you need: Class hall shit. Come on Blizz. Is this really something you wanted? Like really.

 

To not fly in this game…is terrible. The landscape is so beautiful! I can’t believe I literally cannot enjoy it by flying! I mean this is my major complaint every single expansion, but it’s so easy to hit a hot key, turn into a bird and fly away to get the next quest ect ect. But I guess as long as they add it soon I can be ok with this. Plus, Flap is a thing. Google that. Balance Druid: Flap.

 

New lands, new NPC, new raids.

This is going to be a neat thing to talk about because I am actually happy to see some of the old lore play out. My favorite thing is that they have Odyn and Helya and Fenrir and all of that awesome stuff into this area. They play real heavy with the lore that is in the main lands and such and it’s nice!

No more Yrel! Thank GOD on this one, I mean like seriously. I couldn’t be happier. I skipped and jumped when I left my garrison only to return for my pet balttle things because of my collection addiction 😉

 

But really. I am OK with this expansion. A little sad I haven’t seen Illidan yet, but that’s OK. I’m sure he’ll appear…for now it’s OK.

 

My heart, does go out to the Anduin. I’ve never really wanted to actually hug any NPC before. Like really mean it. But him. I really needed to. *I wont go into details since this game just came out* (Edit: yeah well…It still hurts to talk about it :?)

 

All in all, this is one of my favorite expansions besides The Burning Crusade. I’m happy with it and can’t wait to see what direction Blizzard takes it!

Legion get’s a solid 9/10 Demon Souls

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 give this game a 7/10. 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!!!!!!
