Fortnite Battle Royale

fbr

Fortnite Battle Royale may be the prettiest free game I personally have played, and it is a lot of fun. A weird flying bus will fly over an island and dump you and 99 other player over the island where you will land and the free for all will commence. You can build structures, chop down trees or other structures collect supplies and explore, all in an effort to be the last one standing. The game is far from perfect but they are making improvements and it is a lot of fun. My favorite part is when you die they don’t force you to watch the rest of the round, you simply join a new game which never takes long to find. Now get out there, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Zombies Ate My Neighbors

zamn

I first played this game for the Super Nintendo years ago.I spent days shooting zombies with a squirt gone and various other off the wall but fun weapons before I realized the game seemed to just repeat levels. Or maybe I just sucked at the game. Either way the game was one of the few games as a kid I remember my mom actually sitting down to play for hours on end.

All the levels while vastly different different play out the same, kill stuff and rescue people. This game was simply a lot of fun to play, and any retro fan should give it a try. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Transport Giant PS4

transport giant

Yes I know it is October, but occasionally I do have to review stuff that isn’t horror related. but here have a ghost train.

ghost train

Dead serious, do not buy this game expecting a ghost train, there isn’t one. That being said if you like in depth simulation games this may be for you. This isn’t exactly a game you can sit down and play for 15 or 20 minute and be successful at in a meaningful way. In fact one of the trophies is for playing 100 hours. The sound is nice but not spectacular and the graphics aren’t good but for a sim game they are passable. At the end of the day tho this game is really only for die hard fans of the sim genre as you will spend a lot of time in menus and plotting courses as you build an empire transporting goods to various businesses and towns all pre built, anyone else should spend their money elsewhere.

Game Dev Story (Mobile)

game dev story

Game Dev Story is a Mobile game from Kairosoft  where you run a small software company. As you choose types of games and hire new employees you make more money to create more games. The game itself is interesting and not very hard however it also is not easy. It will require a few play throughs to figure out how to unlock all the different game types you can create and the best way to combine them, but the game itself is easy to get into and at times hard to put down. There is a free trial version if you are curious, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Mario 3 Retro Review

Mario 3

Super Mario Bros. 3. I had not touched this game for a long time. Admittedly as a kid i thought this game as a masterpiece. One of the best of the best. As an adult? This game is still a classic deserving of its status in the gaming world. As you guide our favorite plumber thru world after world of side scrolling action discovering new powers and costumes and even whistles you will plow through many different levels and enemies. Before you know it hours will have passed you by. If you consider yourself a gamer and have not played this game you owe it to yourself to try this one out. And may the gaming gods bring glory to you all.

Final Fantasy 9 (PS4)

Every so often in gaming something happens that is a nice surprise. The other day I woke up to an e-mail about the sudden release of a classic from my childhood. Final Fantasy 9. The story of Zidane and Garnet on their quest to save the world. Sure there is much more to this amazing game, but most people know the story. They want to know, how does this hold up?

Well this port was given the full treatment. Beautiful HD graphics, trophy support ( as of the Saturday of release someone has already managed the Platinum) and just like the Final Fantasy 7 port its of the PC version and has some fun little cheat codes you can choose to use. If you never played before I would suggest skipping the max level stuff but if you just want the story that alone will make the game a breeze.

If you are a fan of the JRPG genre, the original release or the series you owe it to yourself to purchase this game. It is truly a treasure, and is easily one of the Best games ever made. Thanks for reading and may the gaming gods bring you glory

5 Of My Favorite PS4 games

This list was a bit weird for me to make, there were tons of great games for this console so far, and in the end a big part of this was me saying hey I spent a ton of time on this game so it made the list. So here in no real order are 5 of my favorites.

stardew valley

Stardew Valley is essentially the new Harvest Moon except honestly better. After moving onto a farm from your grandfather you begin of course by meeting the towns folk and planting crops. From there you can raise animals, explore mines and go fishing and much much more.

persona 5

Persona 5 is possibly the best of the fantastic Persona series. From the moment this game starts it is a thrill ride of crime, fighting, exploration and oddly living the life of a high school student. Sounds weird but before I knew it 100 hours had passed and I still hadn’t finished this game. Any JRPG fan needs to play this.

bloodborne

Playing Bloodborne had a weird start for me. See after many days of Torsten bitching about Father Gascoigne and him challenging me to do better numerous times he lent me the game. I played a bit and gave it back and eventually bought my own copy. How dare he imply I couldn’t do better. What started as me playing simply to prove I could do better turned into what has been an obsession. The combat, the horror environment the transforming weapons everything became a quest to be a little better. All this time later and I still play this game at least a few times a month in my intermittent quest for the Platinum trophy.

ff15

I had very low expectations on Final Fantasy 15. The demo being pretty fun tho made me buy this game despite my hatred for pretty much everything after Final Fantasy 10. 100 hours later I had the platinum trophy and realizing this was the best installment since 10 and may be just as good.

kerbal

This is an off addition to this list for a few reasons. First the game is currently de-listed from the PlayStation store. It had so many issues not even limited to it occasionally deleting save files rumor has it the company that ported it over was fired and is being reported from scratch by a completely new company. That being said, I still had an insane amount of fun with this. Even failing resulted in a fun explosion and for some reason I could not help by get attached to my little green Kerbals, and feeling bad when I killed one.

So there we have it, 5 of my favorite PS4 games. hope you enjoyed and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
