Day 17, Necromorphs

necromorph

The Necromorphs in the DeadSpace trilogy are a interesting and damn deadly combination of ideas. Essentially they are space zombies brought on by on an ancient alien marker. The victims go violently insane and once dead their bodies are reconfigured into ghoulish malformations. The only way to destroy them is by completely dismembering them. These stand out because of how freakish and original there attacks are and how easily they can swarm you in the enclosure of space. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Fallout 4 – Base Game Review

Pretty sure this was done before, but I’m unoriginal, I’m LittleSavior699, deal with it. Oh yea, spoilers, I guess. You coward.

Fallout 4 is one of the more recent additions to the Fallout franchise. (We don’t talk about Fallout 76, who she?) Coming out in November of 2015 and winning game of the year. If I’m being fully honest, I think Fallout New Vegas is the best Fallout game. Get Obsidian back, alright Bethesda? You need a great installment of the Fallout franchise to make up for 76, that piece of sh-

However, I still enjoyed Fallout 4, especially with all the mods I broke that game with. Seriously, who thought that was a good idea? You really think we’re NOT going to make Dogmeat invincible? It’s just more immersive that way! Dogmeat is a good boy, can we just make this a review of Dogmeat? Actually, no, it’d just be a bunch of cute dog pictures and me worshiping the air he breathes & ground he walks on. He’s a good boy.

For each and every faction, I can describe it the same. BORING! I just can’t even be bothered to do their missions anymore. The only reason I ever do is to get Piper to marry me, and even then, I often remind her she’s lucky I love her. Oh, and to get The Castle so I can build a Castle fit for Piper. Not Nat, she can shoo-shoo! Who names their child after a bug?! Anyways, I seriously think the factions have much to be desired. Hopefully in the next game, they get better.

I really liked the graphics and how they had more depth; the people didn’t look like plastic clay. I also really liked the idea layering of armors, however, the execution, whilst not terrible, I didn’t like it so much. Some items that couldn’t be layered didn’t exactly make sense. Why wouldn’t I put a raider chest piece over my winter clothes?! I get cold, and the armor rating isn’t that great!

Also, can we talk about Preston?! DUDE, CALM YOUR TITS, I’M SURE SOMEONE ELSE CAN DO IT, LEGIT, ONE OF YOUR PEOPLE STOLE MY POWER ARMOR! I’m pretty sure they can handle themselves. Oh, I also hated that the main character was voice acted. I couldn’t give them a cool, weird voice!

Hero Express (PS4)

Hero Express is a driving game in which you will attempt to race across vast hills and valleys in order to deliver items to help a hero save the world. The hero is incompetent, because he honestly forgets the item he needs to defeat every monster which are parodies of other monsters from movies and such.

The game graphically isn’t amazing but it is good enough and the controls function great for what the game is trying to do which is essentially a physics-based driving game where you level up your cars to improve performance so you can complete each level. It is a bit repetitive but is enjoyable, and the platinum is pretty easy to get if you are into that sort of thing. Plus, the game is cheap, like $5. I picked it up on sale for less than $2. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Borderlands 3

borderlands 3

A couple weeks ago I did a Borderlands 3 first impressions post I highly recommend checking out in conjunction with review. It’s basically going to give you a better look at my thoughts on the game as a whole, but I’m driving the point I originally made here.

Borderlands 3 picks up 5 years after the events of Borderlands 2 and the Borderlands 2: Commander Lilith and the fight for Sanctuary DLC. The Calypso Twins, Tyreen and Troy, are uniting the bandits and scum of the borderlands together in a massive cult called the Children of the Vault (or COV), known for hosting there brutal killings live on the net YouTube style for the masses. They seek to find all the vaults across the galaxy and become the gods they are seen as. With Lilith’s Siren powers gone and in Tyreen’s grasp, things look bleak for our heroes. It’s up to our new Vault Hunters, Moze, Fl4k, Zane, and Amara to stop the COV from conquering not just Pandora but the galaxy…

It’s been a long ass time since I felt so divided on a game. The gameplay, as I previously said, is immaculate. The guns and shooting are better then they ever have been; new mechanics like power sliding and the alternate fires make combat more exciting with the improved AI and the increased enemy damage. Each class is a blast to play as and the new class system offers more possible replay-ability than any other game in the series. The enemies and settings are much more varied and refreshing. So what’s the catch? The writing is frankly sub-par. The jokes are cringe-worthy, you’re favorite characters pretty much are glorified cameos mostly, and the Calypso Twins get annoying quickly. The format feels closer to the original Borderlands before they got there story telling mojo. Essentially you feel like you’re playing a damn good shooter with a Borderlands skin attached. In conclusion, the game is amazing to play but the story is a huge disappointment. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

The Alliance Alive HD Remastered (PS4)

As always huge shout out to NIS America for hooking me up with a copy of this one. It is always a pleasure to get to review a game for them and this was no exception.

The Alliance Alive is a remaster, obviously, of the game of the same name from the Nintendo 3DS. It has overhauled visuals, sounds and the story should be pretty similar to the 3DS version for those that played it.

The story is pretty standard JRPG stuff. A group of humans will rebel against their beastmen and daemon overlords. The world has long since been split apart, and the sky is no longer blue. It is actually rumored that the blue skies in stories are just that, stories. The story starts out with a simple delivery mission, and as always explodes from there. As always I won’t spoil too much, but you can expect to be bounced around in the early chapters to get a good view of different perspectives. The story is pretty good, tho not very innovative. It isn’t going to reinvent the wheel or even improve it, but it will entertain you.

The battle system is also pretty typical JRPG stuff. Turn-based battles until someone’s HP is gone, tho you can revive your characters with a simple healing spell which is cool. Getting into battles is a simple matter of walking into an enemy on the map, and I like the fact you can basically equip any character whatever weapon you want, tho you would waste talent points learning new skills for those weapons.

Admittedly, while I enjoyed the game you really could tell you were playing a 3DS game on PS4. The visuals and sound were upgraded weren’t quite up to scale and the gameplay was simplistic. It was fun tho and for that, I have to give this game an 8/10 and recommend it to any fan of the genre. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Rocket to Uranus (Mobile)

Rocket to Uranus is a simple concept. The rocket spins around a planet, you tap the screen at the right time and it flys to the next planet, or you get lost in space and start over again. This is about as fun as it sounds. Yes, it’s cool for about 2 minutes.

The graphics and sound are both simplistic and the game itself is..Well lets just cut to the chase, don’t waste your time downloading it. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Mario Kart Tour (Mobile)

Mario Kart Tour is the newest mobile game from Nintendo and I have to say it was greatly disappointing for me. It is full of in-game transactions for almost everything, and they aren’t exactly cheap. The controls are also pretty horrible in my opinion.  It never felt like I was truly in control of what was going on.

The other issue I have is that it seems like you are racing bots not other people and this is rather frustrating since they are given names that seem like other people. That just seems like false advertising to me when it comes down to it. There is one redeeming quality tho. I thought the sound was amazingly accurate to the series.

If I had paid real money for this game I would probably have been upset, and it really seems like a money pit to me. I personally won’t be putting more time into it. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
