Onrush (PS4)

Onrush is one of this months free games for PSN and admittedly I wasn’t too happy at first. Soma isn’t exactly popular here at Savior Gaming and I am not a huge fan of racing games. Onrush, on the other hand, isn’t even truly a racing game. This will take some explaining.

First, there isn’t a starting and finish line, you simply go. There are two teams trying to score points by making each other crash or even crashing the random cars also on the track tho those are so much easier to crush.

Second, not every race is the same. Some will have you cruising through checkpoints to add time to your clock while attempting to stop the other team from doing the same, scoring points by not letting your clock hit zero.

The controls and graphics are amazing and easy to look at. It is actually quite easy to see why this game has such a cult following. The music is pretty great as well with a nice soundtrack.

The game isn’t perfect tho. Admittedly you can only crash cars for so long before you want something else to do and pretty much everything is existence is locked, from clothes to tricks to even gestures and it takes time to unlock them. This isn’t a deal breaker, but its enough to put me off. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

We Accept Her One of Us — Master Mix Movies

Freaks is a Pre-Code horror movie released in 1932. Way back then in early Hollywood, the Hays Code was a series of guidelines all films had to follow. We would later come to know it as the MPAA rating system. Freaks was among the earliest films to truly shock audiences. Less likely by today’s standards, […]

This seems like a classic 1930’s movie that I would never get around to watching but is worth seeing.

Left Alive: Gameplay Trailer

After what feels like months of waiting, we finally have a gameplay trailer for left alive, and honestly it kind of looks like The Division.

I don’t mean that as an insult by any means. Graphically it looks beautiful and I love any game that allows me to make choices that matter tho admittedly it makes me realize why I shouldn’t be allowed to make choices in the real world. I am a bit worried the game will primarily be escort missions involving getting people to shelters but I suppose in a few months we will find out. Until then enjoy the trailer, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Autism – Getting The Diagnosis — 16-Bit Dad

So one thing I haven’t really made that public about my family and I is the fact that, for the past year or so, we’ve been going through the steps to determine whether my daughter is autistic. Today, we got the final diagnosis, and by the fact that I am writing this, I’m sure you…

A very well written post, and as a father that has been through it I know exactly how that process feels and goes. The best advice I have ever gotten and could ever kid for anyone that just had a child diagnosed with autism is simple. Your child is your child, they have likes and dislikes just like anyone else. Theirs are just different. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

The 7th Guest: The Board Game

The 7th Guest was a PC game originally released back in 1993, which you can still purchase over on Steam believe it or not. It has some mixed reviews but overall it seems solid enough and tells the story of, quite simply a mansion full of puzzles and toys. You will attempt to spend one full night there and the winner gets their hearts most secret desire. Their Kickstarter page has a ton more info.

This is where the board game comes in. It is for 2-6 players (ages 12 and up) and can take one to 5 hours depending on the rules you play with. This seems pretty cool because sometimes honestly I am playing with my friends while having a few drinks and we just want something to do while having fun. We want something to do for 4 or 5 hours. Other times I am playing with my kids and they do not always have a huge attention span so 1 or 2 hours is great.

The game itself is largely puzzles and logic test for you to solve to advance which the other players can steal ( and you can steal theirs) This all sounds pretty simple but of course, nothing in life is. There seems to be some twist and turns such as spaces that will toss you someplace else or force you to unlock extra rooms on your way to the exit.

A good sign in all this is the game is actually being created by people like Rob Landeros and Charlie McHenry, the people that founded Trilobyte games and created the original game, so if you happen to be a fan of the game and are worried this will deviate too far from your beloved 90’s memory I don’t see that being an issue. They even started to design the game from the ground up around the original map of the PC title. I have spoken to them and it looks like the game will be shipping in January so as you can see I am finding out about this a bit late. Savior Gaming doesn’t even normally cover board games, but this one just seemed pretty cool and I decided to share it with you guys. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Thank You

I just wanted to give a quick thank you to every single one of you. I know there are a couple weeks left in the year but the last year has been great. Hell even this week has seen a lot of new followers on both WordPress and Twitter as well as over on twitch ( I swear I am going to start streaming more often) You guys have made what I thought was going to be a quick hobby while I recover from some injuries turn into something magnificent that I really can’t imagine not doing. I have made some great friends like that started out following my blog that I now look forward to reading their work and talking to, like BeardedGamer or real life friends that decided to start their own blog like GamingWithNoobs. It has all in all been a great ride and sincerely thank you all for joining me, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

I can’t lie, I really didn’t see this one coming. The Infinity Blade series is pretty popular.
