Mobile Games

Mobile

Years and years ago, back when mobile games started to evolve from simple games like snake I always believed they would eventually stop. Tho back when I thought this my phone was little more than small brick that could make calls and 20 minutes of effort resulted in a text message. Now i have written entire blog post complete with pictures.

As much as phones have evolved, as have the games. Gone are trying to avoid small dots with what amounts to a piece of string, and now we have full fledged Final Fantasy games and things like angry birds. As phones change so do the games and its interesting to see how the games go with it and it brings up new questions like how far will this go? We all ready went from  dots to PlayStation games, in another 10 years we may be playing PS4 and xbox one remakes in the palm of our hands or something even more bizarre and unthinkable.  As always thanks for joining me and my the gaming gods bring you glory.

Me and Injustice 2 so far… — Savior Gaming

For the past few months I’ve found myself riding a hardcore DC kick, reading dozens of there comics, trying to duck into the break room at work to catch the latest episode of Flash or Arrow, and drooling over the utter epicness of Conroy as Batman and Hamill’s Joker in Batman the Animated Series.

Final Fantasy 15 Review

Final Fantasy

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…

Harvest_Moon_64_Coverart

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.

Kerbal Space Program Review

Kerbal

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.
