Final Fantasy 15, there is a ton to say about it and yet most of it doesn’t need to be said. You play Noctis who basically goes on a road trip with friends on what is essentially a huge bachelor party with monsters. The car basically drives on rails but if you time it right you can steer into traffic a bit but honestly it doesn’t do much. The fighting is pretty fast paced despite only having 3 spells tho they can be combined in various combinations and with other objects to do other stuff.
The story itself is fun and full of adventure as well as a mechanic with some monster um..assets, that plays a rather important role in the game. In usual Final Fantasy fashion the story starts out innocent enough and shortly after all hell break out. Next thing you know your people are dead a kingdom is on fire and of course an evil empire is responsible.
The DLC so far is based on the characters in your party, episode Prompto will be the next release later this month, Admittedly I am waiting to play all the DLC at once, after over 100 hours and collecting the platinum trophy I am a little burnt out nut the 100 hours was pretty amazing, easily the best Final Fantasy since 10 despite chapter 13 being a dumpster fire. All in all I would highly recommend this to any RPG fan, once again thanks for joining me and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
We all have a game we play and can’t quite explain why. Some of us have been playing games for so long we have more than one. Way back in 1999 i bought a game called Harvest Moon for the N64. This was because I never found a copy of the SNES version I saw in a magazine years before,and that summer I easily spent hours every day in my room playing it. I was for whatever reason obsessed with making a little more money, planting a few more crops and befriending every villager I could. My mom and dad asked, both of which thought I was insane when I asked for it, asked me why I liked a game about farming so much. To be honest close to 20 years later, I still have no answer.
Not to long ago i heard about a game called Stardew Valley, which was basically this generations Harvest Moon and i was instantly intrigued. So for $15 I picked it up on PS4 and spent the next week logging in the equivalent to a full time job with some over time attached and my obviously now neglected girlfriend asks me why I even bought a game about farming and why I seemed to like it more than most of my other games. Again I have no answer. We all have games like that, games that for some unknown reason seem to drag us into its world kicking and screaming and won’t even let us know why. See I can explain the hundred hours Kerbal Space Program and Elite Dangerous have taken from me and why they will take more in the future. I just love space and theoretical space ships I will never see let alone fly. But farming, that I can’t explain. Feel free to comment your unexplainable game or hit me up on Twitter or Facebook. Thanks for joining me and as always, may the gaming gods bring you glory.
This one is a bit interesting as a game. The basic idea behind this is, as the name implies, you are in charge of the space program on the planet of Kerbal. And yes Kerbal is basically the earth,it even looks like it and has a moon called mun. The goal here is to collect science by building small rockets and sending your kerbals ( essentially people) on trips to various places on Kerbal and into orbit and eventually to the mun and other planets and satellites. This is far harder than it sounds given the at times awkward controls and fairly realistic physics. Building a rocket that flies is pretty simple when its just a quick jump a few miles away but becomes far far more complicated when traveling to space, where you will have to not only deal with wind resistance but the rotation of the planet itself as well as gravity, all of which changes depending on where you are launching from Kerbal, the mun or any of the other bodies in the solar system. And yes your ships can explode killing your kerbals, i once flew one into the sun to see what happens.Pro tip, you burn up long before you get there. as always thanks for joining me, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
Just a quick moment to tell everyone a long time and personal friend of mine will now be posting here at Savior Gaming. Torsten V will mostly be covering various nerd culture, books, comics, movies the usual suspects while he works on his own book he is writing, and remember regardless of what he says, he is not a childrens author. Seriously, I have read his book. its not for kids. So enjoy his work and may the gaming gods help us all.
Here is a topic that seems to be done to death, so I decided to kick that horse one more time. This one will be short and sweet, honestly I have two issues with season passes.
- Any time i have to buy stuff without knowing exactly when i will get it and what it will be it sets off a red flag for me. What if i don’t like it? What if it delayed or comes out at the same time as other stuff i want to play? Basically the answer is it sucks to be you.
- Many times you are essentially buying whatever it is they choose to give you, and once they have your money really what is their incentive to give you a quality product. That really is all I have to say on the subject. I have bought a few “gold: edition games and have always been disappointed. As always thanks for joining me, feel free to leave your thoughts, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
Young Frankenstein is directed By Mel Brooks and written by Mel Brooks and Gene Wilder whom also stars in it. The movie released December 15th 1974 and is a comedic take on the classic Frankenstein story involving the great grandson of the infamous Dr. Frankenstein and upon inheriting his estate meets Igor, the grandson of, well Igor. In true Mel brooks fashion hilarity ensues. From the search for grand daddy’s private library, which the first book he finds is conveniently titled “How I Did It” to the realization that since in order for it to work everything must be bigger and as a German woman more politely puts he must have a huge lower extremity. Aside from the black and white picture at no point in this movie did i feel like i was watching a movie that was made going on 43 years ago, and it definitely feels like a Mel Brooks movie easily equal to Space balls or Men in Tights.
My only real issue besides not knowing how of all of brooks movies is and how i missed this one is the very much reveals how many jokes seems to be in multiple Books movies, for example at one point it is pointed out that Igors hump used to be in the other side similar to the witches mole from Men in Tights, but i can forgive that since honestly it works.

This game for me was long awaited. Finally an 80’s horror game where I simply have to kill everyone or try not to be brutally murdered. But does it live up to the dream? In a word, absolutely. Sure the game does have its issues, for example if its possible I can’t do it, but why can’t these kids jump over a damn fence? And there are definitely some graphical issues when it comes to glitches and camera angles. That being said the game delivers well in the core concept. As Jason you play as an insanely over powered Jason from various movies and use your ability to sense where people are and teleport to their general area, tho it far from perfect on where you get dropped, that is half the fun. You can then use various methods to kill the other players, for example the classic machete or stomping their head into a fire place.
Playing as the counselors is also fun, your job is to escape or kill Jason tho the later option is far harder than it sounds and will require a joint effort from everyone. Other methods of escape include fixing a car or boat by finding the keys, battery and gas hidden throughout the area and you can even call the police, wait for them to arrive then make your way to the exit. This must be done with Jason constantly hunting you and the screams of others are occasionally heard in the distance. Another nice touch is the proximity chat,unless you lose yourself off in a private chat with friends all chat happens when you are close to other players, including Jason. This leads to some interesting things, like being stalked by Jason that is controlled Cleveland from family guy even while he is punching your head off your body. as always thanks for joining me, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
So as I mentioned in my review of RPG Maker MV I am indeed making my own game. Don’t worry, I wont be trying to sell it to you. Its just something since i was a kid i wanted to know more about and this allows me to learn a bit. Some things that sound simple but are not is creating Items and skills. First off i recommend at first going generic, call healing items potions or herbs and weapons sword or whatever. See this isn’t because thinking up names is hard (tho I hate it) It will simply let you focus on the math involved in making skills. the formula works something like this, 100+a.atk-b.def which basically means 100 plus players attack minus enemies defense. So you start with a base attack of 100, then add the attack power of the attacker, lets say 50 t get 150. then subtract the defense of say 55 to get a total damage of 95. Then comes the balancing act of making sure the skills do enough damage to the enemy without simply being over powering. Items have a similar issue, for example they need to heal enough to be useful but not so much that you can just spam them to heal. Seriously if anyone has mastered this my game ( Called battle buddies as an inside joke) will probably come along a bit quicker. As always thanks for joining me, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
Up until now I have been trying to keep my reviews mostly positive but this time i can not do that. It is moderately fun and pretty simple to start. But the controls are pretty bad, using the same analog stick to not only accelerate but to steer and it simply does not work for this game. Another issue is while the game looks pretty good it is far from impressive which normally isn’t a problem, you will have to either spend a lot of time or lot of money to dig into the impressive amount of customization. There are hundred of items to upgrade and even build your own combat vehicle which sounds amazing, except that people won’t likely ever see or use. After about 10 hours i still haven’t much done anything to improve my very basic truck and guns. This is luckily a free game so there is no harm in trying it, but everyone deserves the warning that unless you feel the need to spend real money or plenty of time on it you won’t see most of the game. As always thanks for joining me and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
Now for those that are not a PC gamer or simply don’t keep up on news, recently Take-Two has decided to put an end to what is basically a mod that allows for modding of the grand theft auto game, you can learn more here.
I have pretty mixed feelings about this personally even tho it doesn’t have anything to do with me as a console gamer. On one hand i feel like its their property, if they do not want you messing with it that is on them and it’s their right as the owner. Then I start to finish the thought, while all of that is true they did for years allow the modding community to flourish. To suddenly decide they no longer wanted to allow that they have effectively slapped an entire section of their fan base across the face. I don’t know what goes into making a mod, but i imagine it no different from making a video game on any RPG maker or even writing a blog, both of which can take hundreds of hour. That is no small amount of time or dedication, and while games like Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption will sell regardless but I have to wonder if they aren’t playing a very dangerous games with their PC sales. I suppose we shall see, as always thank you for joining me, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
