Buck Hunter Arcade PS4

PREVIEW_SCREENSHOT3_126161.jpg

I have no idea why I am reviewing this game. Seriously I think its just a throw back to the old days of playing in arcades and games like this being the only ones that i didn’t suck at.

So you basically have 2 options, hunt deer or hunt elk. The shooting works nicely and the game is very entertaining with friends even tho they steal your kills, looking at you Torsten. The wooded scenes look different enough to stay interesting but not so different to feel like a different game.

There however is not much to the game. Shoot some deer or elk and occasionally some small game or mountain lion, try to get a high score and repeat. It is a home arcade game in just about every way, and I oddly enjoy it. As always thanks for your time and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

7 Days To Die

7D2D_KeyArt-980x551

7 days to die is essentially a zombie survival simulator. You build tools chop down trees build weapons and cloths even a vehicle while scavenging for food,water and of course any other useful item you can find. The concept is one millions of people dream about and discuss at great lengths. There are only 2 types of people in this world, those with a zombie plan and dinner.

With all that out of the way, I have to say at least on PS4 this is not a well made game. Its rare but I have on occasion when unable to open doors or go into menus but after restarting the game work just fine. The graphics while not horrible have a tendency to tear and at larger distances its not uncommon for objects to appear and disappear. Zombies don’t have the best look and only come in a few different varieties. The shooting mechanics are stiff but work well enough and driving is a bit rough as well.

With all that being said there are no issues with the game that are a deal breaker or make the game unplayable. It also gets regular updates and has a very strong community attached to it. If you are a horror fan or simply love the zombie genre there is no reason you shouldn’t own this game. Stay safe out there and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Elite Dangerous Bounty Hunting

For those that even semi regularly follow the blog you know I recently returned from a trip to Sagittarius A, the center of the galaxy. When I got back I decided to buy a combat ship and take part in the current community goal in Kaal by turning in bounties. So i picked up a Vulture and outfitted it which cost way more than expected. What I got tho was a small ship with way more fire power than I expected for only having 2 hard points even tho both are large. I quickly racked up a few kills and made a few hundred thousand credits and moved up to the top 75% of participants which if I can stay there will give me around 4 million more credits. Ok so I will admit that is not even close to what my vulture cost me, but long term it should pay for itself .

With all that being said I highly suggest every commander get themselves a combat ship and try it out. Its a nice break from trading and exploring and there is some nice money to be made. As always thanks for your time and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Pokemon Y

Pokemon X and Y as many of you know was the first in the 3D pokemon games. When I first saw this I was a bit nervous and it did take a bit if getting used to after over a decade of the old style. Within the first couple hours I realised I very much missed the top down look Pokemon works very well in the new style.

Aside from the new visuals the formula of catching little monsters for what is basically animated cock fighting still works. Any fan of the series knows it doesn’t take long for the obsession to collect as many as you can and find the right balance between new mons and old favorites to kick in. And as always the corny story running along side the quest to become league champ is interesting enough to follow but not so in-depth to distract from the main attraction of collecting and battling. The new EV training system was to me the best new addition and it saddens me to see it disappear in Sun and Moon and I hope to see it again.

Americas Army: Proving Ground

I was torn when I downloaded this for free on PS4. Part of me doesn’t expect much from free games. However having been in the army I wanted good things. That being said, having served I knew this would be functional but flawed. And that’s really the best way to describe this first person shooter. Functional, but flawed. The controls are pretty standard and while graphically the game is sub par its not bad. The issue becomes where the many glitches come in. Numerous times while attempting to use an elevator it would take 3 and 4 attempts to have it actually work and more then a few times dead bodies would be simply floating in mid air. While floating dead people is easy to ignore the occasional random person floating was not. This normally happens when getting off an elevator,regardless it was still annoying as hell.

Aside from the numerous glitches I came across there really isn’t much to say about the game. It is pretty much average and standard in every possible way. As always thanks for your time, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Medieval Life (Mobile)

ML

I don’t expect much from free games, that is even more true on mobile devices. But this one is just, well bad if I am being honest. There is very little to do, fighting is nothing more than tapping a button as a bar moves in hopes that your bar is higher than theirs. You buy a new weapon as you level up which allows your bar to go higher and you collect money by killing monsters and selling what I can only assume is their bodies. Earning experience is slow, a couple for each kill and more when you buy furniture for your house, and no that is not a joke. I would advise you to avoid this game. As always thanks for your time, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Prison Architect PS4

Ever wondered what it would be like to run a prison? Well this game will attempt to let you find out. Whether you want to run a maximum security prison that gives people the chair or a minimum security prison where cells are basically always open is completely up to you. Hire guards, build cells,showers and recreational rooms or whatever else you feel is necessary. Admittedly I had a lot of fun with this game even tho I sucked at it. Watching these weird little people stab each other during prison riots was oddly fun and satisfying tho and without a lot of sim games to choose from on console any fan of the genre should give this a buy, but others should probably stay clear, As always thanks for your time and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
