World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor

I wanted to wait to write this review until after raiding started to I can get a feel for the game and now just do it off of Dungeoning, Game play ect. I wanted to take the time to take in the game…Yeah that.

 

Well, now that I have had the chance to experience the expansion I’ve deemed that it’s World of Warcraft in a different story line that unless you don’t have a clue you kind of catch on. What do you mean by that Unicorn?? Same game new graphics. Old characters brought back in a new world and they aren’t really old Characters. Screw the Bronze Dragonflight.

 

The game.

It’s WoW. For those who have played it you know what I’m talking about. You’re the Hero among millions of Heros out to save the world from something trying to destroy it..Except this is an Alternate universe of a universe we’ve had in the “real” world. But…I think I might be missing a few details…

 

How to be a hero

I’ve been playing for a long time…I’ve been here for many of the changes Blizzard has done but I must say…a baby could now play this game and be amazing at it. I feel like the game has been dumbed down a lot since it first came out. You choose from a list of Talents that you ever every specific level and you go from there. It’s pretty easy to decide what talents you want for your spec for the most part.

 

The new wave of mechanics

I’m speechless when it comes down to the mechanics of this xpac. Every dungeon or raid before had straight forward mechanics. Dodge this, hit this do this. Nope. That seems to be thrown out the window.  It’s more like “Burn this, charge this mob into this mob oh shit watch out for vomit! AHHH these need more ghosts!” The heck is wrong with these guys? I’m all for new things, but some of the mechanics are just outright stupid, and a bit infuriating.

 

 

New items?

The Garrison are one of my favorite features. It’s so much better than the farms back in Panda land. (for those who played back then you all know the pain). Each garrison is unique to it’s character and you can do many things from Gardening to professions. Did I mention professions are basically useless now? I didn’t? Well they are. Sad to say all the gold and time you use to waste to get to max level Alchemy poof. There’s a plot for that.

 

Character models got a nice upgrade. Every thing has been redone to fit the new graphics put in the game. It’s a bit more realistic now, but it’s so much more beautiful! With the remake of some common creatures like Wolves and Raptors, it give the game a new outlook from Vanilla up to Cata.

 

Flying?

I get that we are supposed to enjoy the beauty of the recreated Draenor but we can enjoy it from the air just as much. I don’t want to see grass and trunks of trees. I want to feel the breeze in my hair while I’m flying around on a giant dragon. Come oooooon!

 

Warlords Of Draenor is a nift little expansion filled with lore out the wazoo. If you enjoyed BC lore then you will enjoy WoD. With the changing times, Blizzard has to accomidate to the new players, but I feel like they’re almost forgetting about the people who have been playing the game for years. For the time being, I feel like they could have done a bit more with the expansion like add flying or something super fancy like that. But I remain loyal to the game.

 

WoD get 8/10 warhammers in the skull. Sometimes you just gotta take a breath and do it. Even if you only hit one button, you’re still in a new Era of World of Warcraft.

 

P.s: Give me flying or give me to the Horde.

Mouse Town

Have you ever wanted to be a mighty mouse with the strength to slay evil reptiles that are trying to eat you? Now you have that chance! Mouse town is a little RPG exploring strategy game available on Android and iOS phones, tablets and other devices. Your goal is to explore the area, gather  heroes and resources  while trying to fend off all sorts of reptiles who are out to get you and your mousey town.

When you first load the game, you will have to go through a simple tutorial. It explains  how to build places, fight and gather what you need. Each time you build something you get the chance to gain more mice which are used to build stores, explore and repair. The more mice you have the more you can do. But each time you use a mouse, it takes awhile for them to come back. I find that if you build a about 12 houses you will be ok in the earlier levels. You can always spend gems, which you are given a few when you start but you can always purchase them, to get better everything, like with most mobile games.

The combat mechanics are unique to the game in the sense you legitimately control who attacks and heals what. It’s a simple swipe motion to guide your little mouse to it’s for to slay him. You can also use power-ups as they are gained or you can use a gem to boost them up. As you fight you level your heroes and better gear becomes available.  I found that most of the gear you have to use gems for…which I find to be a bit silly. But when a game is free you have to think of a way to make it worth your while I guess.  But if you do end up playing for a bit every once in awhile you’re give 1-3 gems whether it’s from leveling or doing specific quests. At the end of every fight, your hero must sleep to renew it’s energy.  It can be a bit annoying especially when you’re trying to explore.

The exploration is very time consuming, and a bit annoying. You can only explore in a certain areas and it makes your town a strange shape and a bit hard to worth with in the start until you’re about level 10, when it’s a nice open area.  When you open a new area, you have to fight a lizard of some sort to open the area to get it’s resources or heroes. When you start out the exploration goes by quickly, but after that it drags on. The fights you had to do to unlock the area now require more than one go, but they’re roughly the same fight. Exploration is beneficial to you as you can unlock heroes for free. Other heroes can be purchased through their store using gems.

The graphics are simple. The mouse seem to be clip art type mice with paper doll like movements. Everything is made out of items you’d throw away or have somewhere in your house. A table made from a thimble and a spool of thread, a tea house  made from a tea pot. All little items a mouse could find useful.

Beside the fact that almost everything neat is only purchased with cash or gems, it’s a game that would be a great way to kill boredom for a few hours. Assuming you like waiting a period off time before you can progress in the game then it’s perfect! I feel like if the game didn’t have as much down time it could really be fun!!! I give this game a 5/10.  Though I do enjoy the game, the fact that I have to wait to do anything makes it slightly annoying. I feel that the  way the levels of exploration were poorly placed and made the area a little difficult to place objects you need to even go on in the game.

Skywind

I’m a big Elder Scrolls fan, I’ve been one since they released their first game. One of my favorite games in the Elder Scroll Series was Morrowind. The one where you are Almalexia and you save the world from the false gods and a vampire hiding in a volcano and all of that fancy hero stuff.

For it’s time, it was a beautiful game. The graphics were “realistic” enough for me to get sucked into the game. In my opinion, it was the best game of it’s time, and nothing could compare.

That was..until Skyrim was released. This was the most beautiful game in the  Elder Scroll series. The map was pretty as well. But, this isn’t about Skyrim. It’s not even about Morrowind. Nope. This is about Skywind.

For those of you who haven’t heard of this, I’m kind of surprised. Skywind is a beautiful mix of Skyrim and Morrowind. They recreated Vvanderfell with the Skyrim engine.

With the big graphics update, and the addition of the quest line, Morrowind was reborn.  Skywind is still in a beta phase, so there are a few bugs.

If you’re interested in checking it out, there are a few things you should know about Skywind.

There are no voices, tho I don’t think this is a big since there really weren’t any voices in Morrowind. The text is from Skyrim so it’s nice and neat but it’s still a little tiresome to read the paragraphs they have,

The NPC’s..are well naked. It was a little awkward talking to quest givers while they’re chilling in the nude.  Now if you’re all for naked characters then you’re in heaven!

If you don’t think any of those will bother you, then you should really check it out. I find this to be a fun addon and can’t wait for it to complete! I’ll be playing this until the ESO is released then I’ll be playing that!!

I give Skywind a 7/10 Lily points. Though it’s beautiful and still in beta there are a few bugs that have made it a little difficult to play and I’ve had to reload an older save to fix it.
