Dragon Soul is one of the few free mobile games that while spending some cash will help you progress is not at all necessary. The basic idea is you and your ever growing group of heros (and i use that term lightly) kill monsters, fight other peoples parties and gather item to increase your party power level. Admittedly there is a story but after close to a year of playing it I still don’t know what it is. Something about about an evil sorcerer I think. The theme of today was mobile games and honestly there is not a lot to say in a mobile review, graphically they are all pretty similar and unimpressive and the controls are all the same. As always thanks for joining me and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
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.

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. As far as fighting games go, I was a cool fan of the first Injustice game, neither loving nor hating it. The roster was fairly predictable but understandably so; the story was bleak but fitting given Superman’s descent into tyrannical madness after the death of Lois Lane at the hands of the Joker; and gameplay was fine- fun as hell for some characters but DAMN playing as others made your teeth grind, especially the bulky fighters. So what about the sequel? I’m happy to say Injustice 2 drastically improves on the gameplay and brings a much wider variety to the character roster. Combos are more fluid to the touch as well as the characters themselves. Fighters like Bane and Atricitous have there own kind of heavy grace, while Swamp Thing has a longer range to his attacks. Every character has there feeling of individuality which was one of my favorite aspects of the game. The scenery and character designs are stunning and the voice acting and sound is solid. I’m sorry to say I haven’t actually been able to play the game’s story because I don’t own the game (special thanks to my friend Autobot who let me play this much at his house.) but the plot revolves around both dimensions coming under attack by Brainiac and having to come together. The games only flaw I’ve found so far is the new gear system. I haven’t used it personally but I saw glimpses of where it could go wrong with the premier skins that turn characters aesthetically into others without changing there move sets: like Captain Cold can be become Mr. Freeze, and the Flash can be Reverse-Flash. I saw micro transactions for some of the gear available and that bummed me out a lot…In the end, I highly recommend Injustice 2 to any Dc fan and I will post again after each dlc pack. So until next time, may the gaming gods be with you.
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.
