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 !!!!!!!!

Fallout Shelter

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Elder Scrolls Online

I have put off this review for awhile for a few reasons. Though I am a big fan of the Elder Scroll series, this game has been sweet and sour for me and I know I needed to make a review and try very hard to be non bias. This review is so late after the release due to the fact, I didn’t feel good about paying for a subscription to a game that I may not want to continue playing. So, let’s begin yes?

 

ESO is the next big thing, it’s what Skyrim should have been but that’s another story. Now, the Story for ESO is rather short. I came into this game knowing it was NOT going to be like the other Elder Scrolls games. So I wasn’t disappointed with the fact it’s literally NOTHING nothing the other games.

 

***SPOILERS****

Molag Bal has made a plan to bring Oblivion and Nirn together to create a giant hell. With all of the Chaos, Three groups formed to capture the Imperial City and the White Gold tower. High Rock, Sentinel, and Orsinium stand as one, united under the rule of the High King in Wayrest. Valenwood and Elsweyr have forged an alliance of their own with Summerset, while Black Marsh, Morrowind, and Skyrim have formed a third. And then there’s you, picking your side and your story.

 

Character Creation and Classes

Like Oblivion and Skyrim, the character creation can take a single click of Randomize or it can take hours to create the perfect character you want. I’ve played Khajiit since I started ES and I was happy I was able to recreate my little kitty in ESO.

 

Once you get that task done it’s time to select your class. There’s four you can choose from, unlike the customization you had with the other games. You have the Dragonknight, Sorcerer, Nightblade and Templar. Unlike the other games, each class has a set number of points you get with 3 unique skill lines. Each class has their own set of roles as well. For example, as a DragonKnight you can role as a tank or DPS. Sorcerer can be Heals or DPS. It just depends on your style of play. I happened to start off as a Nightblade since My Kitty was always a sneaky lil bugger. The class wasn’t what I expected. I assumed I would rely more on stealth than I actually do.

 

Game play: Is it worth being a MMO?

ESO is a typical MMO with a few issues along the way, that I will get into later.

The controls are simple and you have to know what to do and where to look to get some of th default hot keys for the game. I got the imperial edition so I was also given the white horse which you could level at about anytime you wanted but There was no guide on how to use it. When I looked it up, all I saw was buy it for a gold and then it’s yours. Turns out I had already learned it and I ended up wasting all of my gold to fire out all I had to do was hit H.  This wasn’t actually a big deal. The PC controls are like that of the game with the fun fact it’s in MMO form.

With PVP and Solo play there isn’t much you can’t do. LIke the other games you have the option to join the guilds, steal and have a great time….when you’re alone. Once you join a party is when things start to get interesting. Unlike many other MMO’s out there today, even if you’re in a party you find yourself working Solo instead of together. Even with Dungeons, you had to rely on yourself more than others to get the job done. So I ask, what’s the point in being an MMO then? If you can’t work with your group then why?

 

Support and final thoughts:

I will give this game kudos on their support staff. They are friendly and will work with you to get your account back in working order. I had some issues with my Beta account and I was unable to get my game tied to it. Working with a staff member, I was able to get my Beta title on my new account, thus able to get the pet.

 

With all of the things I find annoying in the game. It’s still a good one. I think I had a bit of a head start with my mindset that this wasn’t another ES Game, and that it was going to be different. I am super excited to revisit some areas I played with in games and see what they have done to make them different to match the time line.

 

With everything being said, I give this game 7/10 Skooma. It’s a typical MMO with hopes of you playing Solo. As much as I can see the effort made to try to make it so you can play with your friends. But if I wanted to play by myself, I would pick up Skyrim or Oblivion.
