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?

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.

Gaming with Friends: Natural Selection 2

Catlateral Damage

Have you ever wanted to be a cat? Not just any cat but a cat that really wants to destroy things? Sure you have! Who hasn’t!? Am I right?

 

For those who have this dream, I present you with Catlateral Damage! The fun First person Cat game where the object of the game is to completely destroy all of your masters worldly possessions in two minutes! How exciting?!

 

I absolutly adored the game! It’s not only simple but addicting! I was introduced to this game but a facebook friend of mine who had shared the link, and I just had to try it out!

 

The game itself is totally 100% free! It’s also very small so if you don’t have a lot of room on your computer this game iis perfect for you!

 

The graphics are fairly simple with a lot of repeating content, like books, CD cases toys ect. All you see of the cat, like I said before it is first person, it a little black and white paw swiping objects onto the floor!

 

The sound effects are fairly simple, but this is a simple game!.  The controls go with the sound, very simple. It’s WSAD controls with space to jump and you swipe using your mouse buttons!

 

Now, this game is new and still in Alpha so you may run into a few bugs. I ran into a few, but I let the creator know about them.

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 =(

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

Battlefield 4: Final review

With the release of the new Battlefield game, there has been a lot going on. I have done a review about the beta, but now it’s time for the real game!

First off, if you have played the beta and have yet to play the real game, just a heads up what you earned from the beta will not be there. I know there are a few games that allow you to do that, but this is not one of them. I hope you guys are that upset over that.

A few things have changed since the beta, One big thing, is the new maps. They are all different from one another, but they’re pretty much the same size. There are 9 maps all together including the one from beta. My favorite map would actually be that map. The Siege of Shanghai almost makes you feel like you’re accomplishing something. Add to that the fact you can topple giant buildings? Yes please =D

The Multi-player aspect of this game is a very mixed audience. Like with most games, you have the very skilled players then you have the players who don’t know what they’re doing and pretty much all they are is a hindrance to your team. Then you also have the Hackers. Those you want on your team so you always win by sneaky means. All of those people are in the game.

Battlefield 4’s server also have a slight problem. I noticed that when you topple a building on the Map: Siege of Shanghai, the server/game tends to crash for about half of the population. The idea of scouring a forum for servers is a very nice addition but sometimes they just don’t plain work. You have the risk of general server lag as well as the risk of crashing due to a bad host.

The guns seems to be having some trouble as well. I’ve seen many guns that have low accuracy that use to be awesome in the beta, and the fact it seems to be a bit more difficult to get the better weapons, is a slight turn off to the game in my opinion. But this isn’t going to make me stop playing.

There are still a few bugs and what not that can hinder your game play. Missiles exploding before they leave the gun. Parachutes not deploying…and the “laggers” who can take a whole clip but use one shot to kill you (haha that’s not a bug but it’s still dumb!) Hopefully, a patch will be released to fix everything, one could hope at least. The bugs don’t happen all the time but when they do they can be super frustrating.

Battlefield 4 get my rating of 8/10 Lily points. The game all together is very fun. If you are into the military simulation games, shooters or just looking for a way to relax and have fun, you should pick up this game.

Borderlands 2: Review and Replay

I’ve played this game since its release and I have played the expansions and each of the characters you can choose from. So there are a few aspects of this game that I would like to talk about, so let’s get started. If you had the chance to watch me stream Borderlands, then you definitely saw that I wasn’t doing as well as my Co-Op partner. That was kind of sad, but this highlights my first topic I want to review.

The controls. I had played and beat the game and its different packs rather quickly so when I decided to play another game, I didn’t go back to it. I was very rusty when we picked it back up. But after a few sessions of playing, the controls came back to me and I was once again a good addition to the team. With this said, the controls are easy to remember and use when you’re put in situations, such as boss fights and Badasses.

Onto the characters! Like the last game, you can pick between 4 characters. Each with their own unique ability that is helpful in one way or another, and during Co-Op playing, I’ve discovered if you have a commando with you, it makes the game play easier. When it comes to customizing them, there isn’t much at first. You can pick a hair style or two and some different color clothes, but that’s about it. However, as you go on with the story line, find Easter eggs and gamble, you have the chance to unlock new skins and heads for your character. Right now, I’m a bright pink siren with a Unicorn on my chest =D. I like the Cel-Shade graphics.

The unique textures it gives the game really added appeal to me. This was one of the things that kept drawing me to the game. The way everything looked in the game made me wish some of my favorite games looked like this. I honestly wish that more recent games used this type of graphics. The story was straightforward with some side quests you can do. You are this all mighty hero that has to fight a big bad guy and his minions of…psychotics? Not quite sure what to call them, but they are pretty insane.

Now, I won’t spoil anything for you, but there is something I suggest when playing. Keep the subtitles on; you’ll catch some pretty funny things the locals have to say to you. I’ve caught several people making snarky comments about the little robot dude, CL4PTP. When I first sat down and played this game to right now, my thoughts haven’t changed at all. Starting from fresh was a great idea in my books and it helped me pay more attention to what I was doing and what was around me if you haven’t had the chance to play this game, you really should.

There is replay value in my opinion. The different modes give you different style enemies to fight and it also helps hone your skills for other games, though controls may vary. The more I played Borderlands, the better I got with my other games like Halo and Call of Duty.

I give this game a 7/10 Lily Points. I enjoyed this game but sometimes it was a little over whelming when it came to mob placement and it could prove to be difficult. But a game isn’t a game unless it challenges me =D

 

Battlefield 4 Open Beta

The next exciting installment of Battlefield has entered the Open Beta phase, so if you haven’t had a chance to play it then what in the WORLD are you waiting for?!

Now, FPS are one of my favorite games. They’re not the most easy or simple but I enjoy that feeling of scoping a random person right in the head.

I enjoyed the beta from what I played minus the little cheaters I encountered which made the game a little irritating at times.  As with many games, those always seem to be what ruins it for me. But I still liked the game regardless.

The controls for the PC were really easy to get for a rusty player. I liked how you could pretty much do anything you wanted. Jump over a barricade, swim in the water PILOT a HELICOPTER. All very exciting things!!!

I like the realism of Battlefield. I always have.  The guns are very realistic, as the bullets lose momentum and arch after they are fired.  For the most part, deaths were realistic too. I don’t agree with if you fall from about a 4 foot drop you die. That isn’t realistic at all, and frankly I find that dumb. Even if you have some health gone that shouldn’t kill you.

Dog-tag customization was a very interesting thing to me, as I never really experienced the military games. I liked how you could pick any country flag, and your other dog-tag you earned through achievements, kills and what you destroy.

With this being a beta, there are still some bugs and glitches. But this will be a game that I pick up when it comes out!
If you haven’t had a chance to play it yet, nothing is stopping you. You should give it a try, who knows, you may like it =D

I give the beta 6/10 Lily points! I can’t wait to play the full game!

I'm live! Come say Hi!
CURRENTLY OFFLINE
