Sushi Striker: Way of Shushido DS

So this review is for the DS version of the game. I haven’t had a chance yet to play it on the Switch so I can’t really comment on it. I’m going to assume the story line is the same. But, let’s get this review started with this delicious review!!!

 

The story behind this game is a very unique one, a story that I could totally get behind! So, long story short, your parents went off to fight a war to make sushi available. While trying to find food, you come across a Sushi Striker of sorts who helps you enjoy the taste of the raw fish delicacy before introducing you to a Sushi Spite that helps make sushi! Suddenly you are ambushed by the Empire ( Dun dun dun) where you fight them off and learn the basics of what it means to be a sushi striker. Eventually you get your own sprite and you go off on your own to win back the right for Sushi for everyone!

It’s a healthy mix of Pokemon, Digimon and Candy Crush….something I never thought I would say in the same sentence. Like really. I honestly don’t like the game Candy Crush, but I fell in love with this game. You have to put several of the same color sushi plates together in order to empty your plate WHICH YOU THEN throw at your foe, dealing more damage the more plates you have. Each sprite has their own strengths that you can use and special skills to help you out, or really mess up your foe. I will admit, I found the healing one to be a little weak end game, but the same color attack made it easy to score a HUGE pile of plates to just chuck at my foe. Poor guy probably doesn’t even know what hit him. I mean a small child throwing plates?  Eh it happens.

 

It’s a quick pace puzzle type game that really strives on the excitement of the matching and throwing rather then the story. I’ll be honest, it a typical be the hero of the country and save the world from the evil government and let’s eat sushi!

 

This game, thought similar to games I don’t really like, honestly get’s a 9/10 from me.  I had a hard ass time putting it down when I got it and I still do now. If it wasn’t for WoW: BFA I would probably be sleeping with my 3DS for awhile before I finish the game!! I highly recommend it if you’re looking for fast, puzzles and just some cute animals!!!

First part of BFA Review

So hey guys! I am still alive sorry about that!  With the Release of Uldir yesterday, I feel like it’s a good time to review the first part of BFA. Plus, getting to explore all of the zone and most of the quest lines and the journey to 120…oh boy. I don’t even know where to start, so we’ll just kind of see where my fingers take me.

 

Let’s start with how I feel. I don’t feel like a hero. I feel like just a run of the mill adventurer. I mean yea….Azeroth chose us for the amulet and all of that shit but man…I understand the system is different. With the whole Global Cooldown system in place, I feel like It’s a RTS game now.  Not that I don’t like RTS, but when I need to heal and I just used a DPS attack, I have to wait several seconds to heal or even use a shield. It’s tough sometimes for me.  Now, some people may not mind the GCD system at all. But it’s frustrating, and I miss not having it.

 

So why don’t I feel like a hero? Shit hits hard, and you don’t hit hard enough. Now, I wasn’t expecting to be as strong as I  was at the end of Legion, but this is just silly. With the removal of spells and abilities from the loss of our amazing artifacts, it was a slight learning curve. But I got over it. It took awhile, and a lot of mourning over the loss of my bear lust. But nothing beats losing Symbiosis. 🙁 That hit hard.  Anyways, going back to what I was saying. I just don’t feel that powerful anymore. It’s honestly a little discouraging.  Not that I don’t mind playing another spec, and being awesome. But what happened to wanting to have fun and enjoy the game? Bleh I dunno.

 

So, the story lines. So much gray…so much slaughtering of innocent people from the Horde. So Much damn destruction, and it doesn’t sate their needs…or seemingly.  I mean, they did burn down the World tree, and then when you help the Trolls escape you burn Stormwind. When will this stop? It was one thing to use it as a distraction, but this I don’t know. It might be because I’m a Alliance main but man, there are so many different paths they could have done to get their point across that wasn’t slaughtering innocent children and people. Like seriously.  Am I truly a hero?  I don’t feel like it.

 

So far, the areas are very inviting and unique. I go from slaying Cthuluhu priest to dealing with witches and then have fun hazing with drunk pirates on the alliance side. Horde you have Trolls, dead trolls, and sneks. Thought I’ve only done Zuldazar, I plan on doing the other ones to get a better idea of what’s going on. I can’t really go over my views on the Horde Quest lines yet, but I’ll add it once i get a chance to do so, so don’t worry.

I fully plan on experiencing this xpac through both sides, since each side has their own thing to offer to explain this expansion so I can’t wait to see what the other side has to offer me lore and quest wise.

 

So far, I’m enjoying the expansion for what it is. I have some problems with the gameplay and what’s going on.  I’ll do a review later towards the center of the expansion to kind of give some more thoughts on the new expansion.

 

So far, 7/10 seems right for the start of an expansion. There’s still more coming out, and still so much more to do so it’s hard to see the full spectrum of BFA so we’ll see later on!

My very late E3 Review

Notes for you guys: So literally, this was written out and scheduled. But due to an update, the schedule got reset and well, yeah this is why it’s late. Well, enjoy!

 

This is my time of year, I freaking love E3. So let’s get started. I’m going to organize this by days because my notes are a little messy and I was working all of E3 sooooo anywho!

 

Saturday

Microsoft had a pretty good presentation.  They announced a lot of awaited titles like Halo Infinite, that’s another Halo Chief story OMG OMG OMG (I don’t have a Master Chief Problem).  They also announced Gears of War 5 which follows Kate. It looked like JD went C.O.G so I’m interested to see the direction they’re headed in this game. Friends become enemies? Only time will tell (and the release hehe) Crackdown 3 has quite a bit of hype, thought I think it’s because I’m a Terry Fan girl. And I hold no shame in that.

 

Microsoft also announced Battletoads (Meme finally came to life) and Devil May Cry 5  where you play at Vergil, always exciting to get a new story and see how they evolve characters we love! On top of other amazing titles like Just Cause 4, Forza and Cyber Punk, Microsoft announced so many damn Indie titles that I couldn’t keep track of them. I couldn’t think of anything negative about Microsoft’s E3. But EA….sigh…..that’s another story.

Now this threw me off, simply because I forgot…they went in depth with Kingdom Hearts 3. The new worlds, the new controls, the new keyblade. Everything. Just EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! I am so excited for this game and I can’t wait until January 29th. It’s been 10 plus years, and I am ready and prepared for this game to be in my life. I really like that they’re changing the combat style a little and letting you change styled live instead of going through your menu and selecting it. It’s just ahhhhh So hard to not be excited! I mean my first tattoo was a Kingdom Hearts one.

So let’s start with the good. New Star Wars game is always fun! As a fan of the sagas and books etc I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen. I just hope there’s no Micros but that’s futile with it being an EA game.  Another fun game is Sea of Solitude. Oh my god! I want this game in my life. The graphics, the idea holy titties this is a 10/10 for me!!! I’m also excited to see Unravel 2. I loved the first one and I’m anxious to see how multiplayer works for this 😀 WHOOT

Now it’s time for the bad and Ugly. They talked about Battlefield V and they went the BR route. *facedesk* of course they did. They are also saying there’s way more player destruction in this game as well as two things I’m finding hard to believe. One being Free DLC and the second No loot Boxes. Coming from EA, you can see why I’m skeptical. Now, with the loot boxes things they’re literally renaming them to Air Drops. I’m sorry but if you rename shit, it’s still shit. Ya know? I just ugh…..

 

Sunday

So this was fun to me.They didn’t go into a lot detail with most of their stuff so I can really only be excited for name sake. Doom Eternal was announced, which excited me. I like Doom and have for quite awhile…They also talked about Wolfenstein: Young Blood where you play as BJ’s twin daughters. Prey’s new DLC got announced going into details with it mostly the fact it has almost endless possibilities. How awesome was that? I mean really. They also delved a little in Rage 2, which is exciting. A few years after the other one with a new lead guy who actually talks. HE TALKS GUYS! How neat!  You also can’t forget Starfield, a fancy new game they announced everything only to be shit on by the 34 second Elder Scrolls VI trailer that did nothing.

 

So, as you noticed, I didn’t mention Fallout 76 above. Before I start this, I want to tell you all the truth. I don’t know how to feel about this game. I always felt Fallout should have Multiplayer functions. I just feel like this is a great thing in a game like this. So, going back…they announced some big things about it. Always online, you play on servers of 12 people. There are nukes you can get and use them to change the are or destroy your enemies. Apparently, it’s easy to rebuild after they drop a nuke? I…I really don’t know how? I mean logic says you can’t do that easily haha but that’s just me.

I like Bethesda’s conference. But I’ve always been a Bethesda Fangirl, and that wont ever change. So I may be bias towards them. Just saying.

 

Monday

I’m disappointed with Square, but to be fair…their one game they’re releasing soon was taken over by Microsoft so they didn’t have anything to do. They did go a little into KH3 but just a trailer we’ve seen so many times, then they talked a little about Babylon’s Fall and The Quiet man.  I can’t say I was too excited for anything beside Shadow of the Tomb Raider. I mean Holy shit this is exciting! I always loved the Tomb Raider games with a passion. I just like being Indiana Jones but with more gore and boobs. Makes it fun for me.

 

Ubisoft went over some big titles that are GOTY worthy, New Just Cause, Rainbow Six content, Beyond Good and Evil. Ubi also went into more detail with hew New Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.  They talked a little more about how you’re this Spartan and like the combat is more brawler then sneaky and it’s like “awe… come on…”

 

They also announced The Division. You know that infection breaks out and stuff happens and you kill things? Oh my bad, The Division 2. Oops. Ctrl+C    Ctrl+V….

 

The biggest thing I was excited about was Rapture Rejects.  Now, I’m not a big fan or BR games. I”m sorry they’re all the same to me. But this…this is different to me. The idea of all of this being after the Rapture and killing people just excites me. I’m not sure why but I need this in my life! Haha

 

Tuesday

Last day of E3 . Nintendo by far was the best. They talked about the New Pokemon Game: Lets go Eevee/Pikachu. I can’t wait for this. Going back to some of the older regions that I grew up with.  I like that they brough back the Pokemon following you system in the game with hints of some of the aspects of some of the newer games like petting Pokemon ect. They added some Pokemon Go things to it as well, like throwing your Pokeball and the whole taking your Pokemon with you. That’s always exciting.

 

Nintendo also talked about Super Smach Bros Ultimate. Adding all of the characters from all the other games, adding the Inklings and Ridley. RIDLEY!! AHHH That is so exciting! I can’t wait to play as him! It’s dumb I know but I still can’t wait for this in my life.

 

Oh, Fortnite coming to switch.  Eh

 

 

So all in all, E3 kind of disappointed me. I don’t know how I feel to be honest. There were a few games I was excited about. But most of it was like stuff that was announced before with no real new information.  But that’s what you get I suppose. I worked a lot of E3, but I don’t feel like I missed anything really. But that’s alright. With more info dropping daily about most of the games, I don’t feel bad for not watching it. But let’s face it. There are a lot of claims of Free DLC, no Season Passes, No Lootboxes, but a lot of the games have already back tracked. So I’m not sure what to believe anymore. But we’ll see when they come out who changed their mind and what happens.

If you’re interested, we did a E3 podcast so check it out for more indepth how we all fee about it. Love you all!

Pokemon/Ultra Sun/Moon

Another late game but here we go!!

 

So, this is going to be a two in one review. Let’s begin with the first game in this series, Pokemon Moon/Sun. Now this adventure takes us to the Alola region where there’s new Pokemon and variants  of Kanto (some are cool others..make me go WTF).

There are many new ways to enjoy this game, with multiple mini games to kill time as well as. There’s also the option to be a berry farmer where you and your Pokemon can raise berries to turn into the Pokemon treats and even have a chance to catch wild Pokemon who really enjoy your island so much in fact they want you to catch them.

So let’s get into some details about parts of this game I liked. I really liked the Poke Pelago, there’s a lot you can do with it from growing berries to collecting Pokebeans and random items. It’s a great addition and it’s a great way to kill time and feel like you’re doing everything you can to help your team be the best it can be. I really feel like the trainer I can be 🙂

The hands on giving your Pokemon attention after a hard battle is also great. This is how I’ve always thought real trainers should act.  I always felt that the more compassion you gave your Pokemon, the more they’d be willing to help you out where it counted, and I stand firm on that.

I am also a big fan of the customization you have with your trainer, and it also helps in making me feel like I’m the one in the game.  The different colors and styles you can pick from really make it easy to make me a trainer. It’s great!

 

The idea of Ultra Beasts are pretty neat, but to be honest I really miss just having the regular Pokemon, then have the legendary and maybe a few super rare Pokemon. I think they could tone it down a little big because I feel like 700+ Pokemon is like whoa. Too much. I still remember the original pokerap. So let’s go!

Now, let’s get to the negatives I have. I miss the gyms. I miss training my Pokemon and REALLY feeling like I’m winning. I mean, I get what they’re going for but I just don’t feel like I’m making a big impact as I did when I’d fight gyms leaders and win. I kind of miss that feeling.

 

The tutorial is also awful for veteran players. Who wants their hand held for hours before being “set free” only to get caught by another hour or so of cut scenes with little to no action. I just I don’t know. I’m not sure I’m a fan of what direction this series is going. I’m a Pokemon fan, and I’m always going to be one. This was the first real game series I was into when I was a child and maybe this is my own fault. But I’m old school.

 

The story line is well I’m not sure….one person goes completely crazy and tries to take control of Pokemon for their own schemes and then you foil their plans and be the hero. Copy and paste almost every other Pokemon game.  But I personally had more questions then I did answers. Like what really ARE the ultra beasts and why are they so damn special? Eh…..

 

 

 

So now about Ultra Sun and Moon? Please re-read the review and let’s add 20% different story adding new bad guys and new mysteries and the ability to collect stickers to get big Pokemon. That’s it. Worth it? Eh….Debatable.  They only REALLY added a new organization that’s supposed to explain what’s going on from another perspective.

 

So I mean, I’ve played and beat this game, and I do enjoy it. I’m anxious to see what’s going to happen and how far this series goes what are they adding to it.

 

I give this game 7/10 Pokebeans!

 

I really like Pokemon, but I feel like they dumbed down these games. Now I wish they had options to skip tutorials or stop holding hands so much. But, that’s just me. I just miss the challenge from the older games. And that seems to be gone to me. I don’t really have motivation to keep playing after I defeat everyone.

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.

The Nintendo Switch

So hi. It’s been awhile. In case you forgot, I am Lily. The amazing UnicornMuffin. Your awesome guide to the Gaming world and avid chinchilla lover.  So, first, I’ve been working a lot more and I am super sorry about it.  So, long story short someone quit which opened up more hours, and the original plan was to write reviews at work….but then ya know of course the works wifi will block it haha….Haha….ha….Well, look forward to this months blog that’s in the works right now too so let’s get this started!!!!

With all the hype around the Wii U a few years back, and the amount of pure disappointment I felt when I finally got the console,  I was actually a little skeptical about this system. I didn’t want to drop the money on a system I’d regret. But I will say, so far this is a pretty neat system.

 

The initial launch was a little rough for me. The only game I was interested was Zelda, like a lot of people heh. The down side of this was, I didn’t want to get burned out on the game while I waited for the all mighty Mario Kart 8 Deluxe to be released.  So I took the game real slow.  I couldn’t bear the thought of myself getting BORED with a game and be forced to watch this beautiful system collect chinchilla dust as I wait for new games to be released.

 

The concept of this system is actually pretty freaking neat. I like that I can play full HD games on the go. Sure, there’s the DS, Vita PSP ect ect, but you can’t just tear apart your system and be like ‘Here we go here’s part of my system let’s play”  I, for one, really enjoy the idea of dismantling my controller so I can play with a friend. I mean what’s better than enjoying a game with your bestie? Nothing. This brings me back to my couch CoOp days, ya know?

 

So why pick a switch over another console? Obiviously the exclusives.  Yeah, you can play Breath of the Wild and a few other games on the Wii U, but at the same time if something comes up and you can’t be home, then you really wont be able to play them. The idea of a full scale console with the option to become a mobile device is inticing.

 

Would I recomend the switch? So far, maybe. If you are totally into the games that are already out, then this is the perfect match for you! The greatness that ou have been waiting for is avaiable when you are ready and they’re in stock!

If you want a system that has more games, roll with a 3DS or something like that. That way you have a wider selection of games, and you can take it where you go. 🙂

It’s all about you!

All in all, I really enjoy this console. I love my switch and the games I have for it. I like that I can pick up a game when I’m on break or just super bored in the bathroom.

 

All in all, I say this is a great system, but it might not be for everyone….right NOW. With only a few titles out for it. It’s going to be hard to say “this is a must buy for everyone”  I do suggest, if you know someone who has one, ask to see it and play with it a little and gage whether it’s the system for you!

I give this fancy system 7/10 Joy-Cons.

 

I wish there were way more games out for it then what there currently is. I really enjoy the system but I kind of feel myself going back to my 3ds due to the lack of entertainment. I can only play Mario Kart 8 Deluxe so much until I get mad at Tanooki Mario. (That cheating asshole)

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

So many games have come out, and here I am having to re write three because the website lose them T.T So I am so sorry for this late review! Forgive me guys please!!!

 

There’s quite a few on my list now from GoW4 to Legion and a few others! I can’t wait to get this started so I won’t wait anymore!!!!

This review is for Civ 6, which I must say is a great addition to the Sid Meier collection. Now I must say, I’m a great lover of the RTS and have been a HUGE fan of Civ for quite a long time and the hype I had for this one was just through the roof, and personally I wasn’t disappointed!!!

 

So with that, let’s get this review started!!!!

 

It is with a heavy heart, I have to admit that they changed up some of the countries a little bit, and swapped out some leaders. I miss Catherine for Mother Russia but, to be fair, Peter isn’t too bad and I think I can be OK with this. There are a few countries, though now with different people, stay the same. The major one I would like to note, is India. I think we all know the horror stories of India, But, for those who don’t…I hope you’re sitting for this.

 

Gandhi is still a dick.

 

The game has a different feel to me. Though it’s nice to be on my own and not have to worry about the science of my comrades, I still miss them. The fact that we can only be friends and not allies for awhile is just something that’s new to me.  But I do want to say that it felt nice to be independent and only rely on myself to advance my country, until Gandhi comes around then well, it’s nice to have friends.

 

So, besides all of this glorious country raising, there are a few other things to keep in mind. All country AI’s have a secret agenda. This can make or break your friendship with them and may even spark a war. One country may not like your hairstyle while the other one things. This adds a sense of wonder into the game until Damn it Gandhi! Stop it! Just stop.

 

With the secret agenda, you can literally meet them or complete miss them. But they hold whether the country is in awe with you, or if they despise the living crap out of you and declare war on you and try to kill you off and all of that fun AI stuff. But a word of advice…

 

Don’t open borders with a country. It may seem like a great idea to let your friend pass through your country in hopes of slaughtering your foes. Just don’t. They can use the generic and walk around your boarder. They always end up in a sweet beautiful betrayal. But really, folks. The AI in this game seem to be more self aware, it’s almost like Skynet. It’s creepy. They beg, they plead, the can even grovel when you start to whoop their butt. Hue hue.

 

All in all this game was so much fun, I enjoyed being alone while playing with my friends where i always had the option to betray them and take over their country, as well as reluctantly giving them open borders to they can help you in the war. I mean, I trust them….. A little or something.

 

Civ 6 is one of my favorite games of 2016 and I can’t wait until the next one but until then, I will play this one with my friends and take out any AI I possibly can and I couldn’t be happier!!!

 

I totally give this game a 8/10 barbarians! This is such a great game! The AI are a lot more nicer to agree with (Except Gandhi of course)

 

Edit: So I want you all to know, that I’ve had this written and posted for quite awhile now and my website decided it didn’t want to post it. So I apologize for the delay and there are many MANY more reviews to come after this one so, again. I apologize and I love you all!!!

The Forest

I don’t know about you. But the words Cannibal and Forest intrigue me. Now this may be because I am a huge fan of The Hills Have Eyes. Or any sort of horror film that involves anything like this….I think? I think it’s more, this is an idea I can get behind and support. So, with that being said. Let’s get started!

 

You start off in a neat little crash scene where some big guy steals your kid. Most parents would try to save them, you just kinda pass out. Some father….Anywho, once you wake up your “to do” list says that you need to build shelter, find food and water ect ect. Basic survival things.But then it says to find passengers, and Timmy. What have they done for you? I dunno but eh.

 

Build build build a fort, and eat all the legs!

Building is time consuming, but it’s so much fun because ti adds to the difficulty in my opionon. The more you clear cut the forest, the more upset the cannibals get and they more they want to getcha! The trick is to build a Log sled. I know it seems like such a silly thing but they can carry like 9 logs! And when a simple log cabin requires like 13? You do the math. 😉

 

Once you get your base set up, next would be to focus on food and water. Hopefully you’re not far from a lake or a turtle (Sorry PETA) or legs and arms will be on the menu for you. If you don’t mind losing your sanity, then this is a gret rout to go. Not only will you have a steady food supply you can also get bones from the limbs you chow down on and you can use them to build things. I’m currently working on build a bone fence around my Cannibal Witch house. But that is just me 🙂

 

Now, let’s get down to these Cannibals. These are what make the game on edge and exciting. There are about 5 different types of cannibals each more deadly than the last. You have the skinny ones, that are some what harmless. They don’t do a lot of damage solo, but in a big group, watch out. Virgina and Cowman though, are dangerous no matter how you look ta it.  The trick is to Dodge. Oh….wait THEY dodge. Silly Lily!!

 

But let’s get down to business right now. You can’t defeat all the cannibals and mutants with your silly little axe you get from the dead flight attendant.  You have the Bow and arrows, stone axes, and you can steal the maces off some of the cannibals. It’s really up to you. Do you survive or conform?! I tried to conform but then my friends started to give me sacrifices of human flesh so I could spare them and then it just got funky!

 

Any who…it’s always better to just survive and explore when you feel it’s right! I mean you can’t just stay in your safe little fort with endless food, when there’s a WHOLE island to explore! WHAT?! A entire Island inhabited with cannibals and mutants and Cannibal Witches (Me. I’m referring to me).

 

The true end goal, is to find the passengers and your son. Or, you know you can just kinda do whatever you want. Survive, Thrive, Die. Whatever floats your boat! DO IT! JUST DO IT!

Long story short, this is a great survival horror game, and I like it. It’s fun to play with friends, but at the same time it’s fun alone! I give this game a 8/10. Thought it is sill in Alpha, it’s still so much fun! I cannot wait to see the final prodcut and I will be keeping this under watch 😉

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?
