World of Final Fantasy XV

TheNerdMag.comFor today, I’m going to be talking about Final Fantasy XV which is the first rpg game in the final fantasy series that is an open world. If you don’t know what open world is then it’s basically when the game itself let’s explore the world itself and see other things besides the main storyline that the game provides. This is a very new element to the final fantasy series because they’ve never did it before and if would have to guess I would say that they were racking their brains on how they could make final fantasy even more awesome than it already is. Their solution: open world.

This was developed and published by Square Enix and we thank you for making this game. It is about a young prince named Noctis who sets out on a journey with his three best friends and bodyguards (Ignis, Prompto and Gladiolus) to meet his bride and childhood friend, Luna. The two of them were supposed to get married in order to restore peace between Lucis and the Imperial kingdom. Soon, after the group leaves the kingdom the Imperials set a trap and end up not only capturing Noctis’s kingdom, but kill the king, as well.

atomix.vgNow with no way back home without dying Noctis and the others continue their search to find Luna and go through the trials with the gods in order to receive their blessing and bring peace back to the land.

This game was trying to pull my heart strings so many times in this game especially the ending. It was so heartfelt and beautiful that it almost brought tears to my eyes. I said almost! But, the game was good nevertheless and I can’t wait to make another one like this and I don’t mean the online ones that their making nowadays, but ones like this where there is a main story and all that good stuff.

My favorite characters would have to be Gladiolus and Ardyn. Gladiolus I liked for very obvious reasons and I liked how he was always that focused and strong character, sometimes, he could be a real hard ass but he had to be for Noctis’s sake. I learned from watching them that each of Noctis friends represents what quality he needs to be a good king. Ardyn, on the other hand, who is the bad guy in this story was my other favorite and I liked him because he was a funny but mysterious villain. For the longest time in the game I couldn’t decide if he was on our side or not, but I’m going to tell you now that he’s not. He was also so casual with killing people, sabotaging plans and destroying the planet that I couldn’t help strangely liking him.

TheFantasyGamer.comAlso, for the DLCs there are some separate episodes for Noctis’s friends and their adventures when they weren’t with Noctis in the main story. You learn a lot about these characters through them. There is an Ardyn DLC that will be coming soon sometime this year in 2018 and I’m super excited about that because I really want to know about Ardyn’s past and how he became the way he is in the story.

The only things I would have to comment on is the teleporting and the loading screens. The loading screens were very bi-polar where it would take 10 seconds one time then take a whole five minutes the next and was very annoying to me. Also, the teleporting function, don’t get me wrong it was very useful for those long journeys across the land to complete missions, but I didn’t understand the game’s logic on what I could and couldn’t teleport to. For example, it wouldn’t let me teleport to a place that would take forever by car, but would let me teleport to one pretty much down the street which made no sense to me. Other than that this was a very good game and worth playing.

If you’ve played it already then you already know how good this game is, but if you haven’t and your into RPGs then give this game a try, you won’t regret it. Can’t wait for the next one to come out!

Doki Doki Literature Club
Sayori, Yuri, Monika, Natsuki

Do you need something to do after school?

Do you like reading and writing poems?

Would you like meet cute girls with psychotic tendencies?

Then look no further ladies and gentlemen go ahead and join Doki Doki Literature Club! It’s a girly and cute dating sim game that also happens to be a hidden horror game which was developed Team Salvato. It’s about a guy who joins the literature club with some convincing from his best friend, Sayori. Sayori is the positive airhead type of girl where nothing bad could ever happen.

Imgur.comAnyway, you think at first that this a simple dating sim game and your goal is to make all the girls fall in love with you. If those are your thoughts then your dead wrong! You not only have to get all the girls to fall in love with you, but you have to make the right choices in order for them to stay alive. One wrong move on your part could lead one of these lovely ladies to their deaths.

I was so shocked at the first death that I didn’t even know what to do with myself. Then, when the shock went away I tried to load my last save and save her from dying, but as if the game itself knew I was going to do that it took away my recent saves as if it was saying MWHAHAHAAHAHA NOPE!!! After that things get really weird and creepy really fast and at that moment you know you screwed up.

I don’t want to spoil too much of the game for you guys, but if you’re not interested in playing it then go ahead and enjoy these reactions to Sayori’s death in the video below. I will say that this is a very good game with the developers intent of making a thinking out of the box type game. I’ve never had game mess with me so much. Every time you think its over it’s not going to happen for a while it happens out of nowhere as if it knows when you put your mental guard down.

If I had a favorite character for this game it would have to be a tie between Natsuki and Yuri. The reason being is that I liked Yuri and I made her my first target in getting her to fall for me, but Natsuki’s way of thinking was very in sync with my own, so I liked her a lot, too. If you are one of the faint hearted gamers out there then this game isn’t for you because there are a ton of jumpscares in this, so if you’re not into that then I wouldn’t recommend it. If you are then please enjoy these beautiful girls in this screwed up game.

ARK: Survival Evolved

Hello and welcome everyone!

I hope you guys are excited for Christmas this year and while you wait for the inevitable holidays, I’ll start talking about the new game Ark: Survival Evolved that was developed by Studio Wildcard. While we were all waiting for it to come out it was the talk of the town. You couldn’t believe all the times I kept here over and over from my friends that ” I should play Ark” or ” You play this game, it’s awesome!”

With all the hype and excitement that was surrounding the game, I got really curious on how it actually is when it did come out.  Personally, I don’t play these types of games on the usual which if you didn’t know its a action-adventure survival game. But, I will if something really catches my eye about the game itself.

After a couple of hours of gameplay, I found that I was really disappointed in what I saw. This was meant to be a multiplayer game but with that feature if you do happen to be playing by yourself the developers could have added some kind of side or main storyline into the game to keep the player entertained enough to find other player to play with. While playing I felt two constant emotions frustration or boredom. In the beginning there is no tutorial and they make you figure everything out by yourselves and if you never figure it…….well then you don’t last long.  Whether it was intentional or not for that feature, we may never know but I didn’t like the fact that it acted like I was a seasoned player of previous Ark so in turn should have already have an idea what was what.

Boredom comes naturally in a game like this when you do the same thing over and over with no change. When you do finally get a hang of the game and it seems like nothing can touch you, it gets boring fast. Quickly, you try to find something entertaining to do while again wait for other players that want to hang out with you but as time drags on nothing seems to catch your attention long enough. I literally played like that for a couple of hours before I told myself I had to stop the madness and end it. So I killed myself (in the game of course) a couple of times in different ways before deciding that this game isn’t for me.

The only thing this game gets praise for its great graphics and the gaming potential that it does have. I’m not sure if this was a good game but wrong type of gamer type situation because some people out there do actually enjoy this. I just don’t know how. This game is for very seasoned type gamers that actually are into these types of games or have played the previous Ark games and know how to get the most out of it.

South Park: Whole But Fractured time I’ll be talking about another game that came out not too long ago and that is ” South Park: The Fractured but Whole” which was developed by Ubisoft. Now, I know that this is the sequel to the first game, “The Stick of Truth” so  I won’t be able to compare if they were some differences between the first and second game.

Both games are RPGs and revolve around the same set of characters, but in the second one the story continues where Stick of Truth left off. In this game, I am a new kid in town who previously was the king in the last game. But, now the medieval time game is over because Cartman discovered that a cat was missing and that his rival superhero gang the Freindship Pals have not only have looked into the matter already, but have become a lot more famous around town and knowing Cartman; he got jealous and changed the game to a superhero one.

TechnoBuffalo.comIn this game it’s mostly the usual in most RPGs. You start from the beginning as a level 1 and work your way up, do side missions to get special items and do the main missions to progress the story. This game is totally funny and the stuff that happens in it is really crazy. But that’s South Park for you.

You have a good variety of classes you can choose from and you can mix and match your abilities as you progress through the story. What I think would be cool is if your abilities and moves were decided by what kind of costume you choose to wear. The combos would have been massive. The only thing that was a little annoying was the fact that you couldn’t sprint which is why I think they put fast travel points all over the map.

I think it’s really funny is that the only reason we have superpowers is because we dress up as them. It would be really funny too if the entire town was in on it so they only pretended to be hurt from my awesome attacks. The things you see and do in this game makes you laugh your pants off with the situations they get in.

This is a really good game for people who want to pass the time or beat the second game because they beat the first. This would be a good game for first time RPG players too as long as they don’t mind the cussing and slight nudity that’s found in the game. This game is really enjoyable to play and makes me wonder if they will make another anytime soon. We can only wait and hope.

Evil Within 2: Secrets Revealed


Today I’ll be talking about the new horror game ,”The Evil Within 2″ this time. Everyone has been waiting for this one for so long ever since the first one came out a couple of years back. To recap from the previous game detective Castellanos and his partners Kidman and Joseph got call about a disturbance at Beacon Mental Hospital. All three went to the hospital with the two of them not knowing what they were walking into. Notice how I say two and not three.

Anyway, Castellanos fights thru a lot of zombies and mutated monsters while trying to find his friends in that creepy, gory world he was suddenly thrown in. A lot of things happened in the last game, but in the end Ruvik the main villain escaped STEM to exact his revenge on the people who wronged him a long time ago.

Some people argue that he didn’t escape STEM because his brain was crushed at the end, but if you look at the last scene then it’s really implied that he escaped from the STEM system because over the Leslie’s mind and walked away. I really was hoping Ruvik would be in the second game, but that didn’t happen. But, then again  it probably wouldn’t make sense for him to be in this one because he did all that to get out of it.

WindowCentral.comAnyway back to the game, so in Evil Within 2 it turns out that the good detective quit his job because of a combination of what he saw in there, Kidman’s betrayal and wondering to this day if he’s still in STEM or not. Personally, I would think that was obvious because he’s not being chased by zombies and everything doesn’t look fucked up anymore but that’s just me. Since he quit, he’s been trying to find Kidman and get some answers until one day she comes to him with an offer for him help his only daughter Lily, who he thought died in a fire years ago.

Of course, he takes the job after learning Lily’s situation and dives back into the ‘new and improved’ STEM system. Not long after entering the new virtual world, he realizes that things have gone to shit in this quiet little town and he needs to find the source before everyone inside becomes a mindless zombie.

MasGamers.comSpoiler Alert Incoming!!!

I like this game because we get to have a closer look at Castellanos’s past before the Beacon Incident. In the previous game, it was only lightly brought up but I guess everyone was so curious about his backstory that they had to put in the forefront of the new game. So, many secrets are revealed in this game that it blows your mind. Some of them being that Joseph was still alive and that even though in the end Myra took over as the core and pretty much self destructed the STEM world and all the Mobius agents someone inside STEM was still alive and doing things. Who was it?

I don’t know and unless their planning on making an Evil Within 3 game, we may never know.

Also, I hoped Joseph would appear after they mentioned he was still alive but that didn’t happen either. But, I hear rumors that there is going to be a DLC about what happened to Joseph later on or maybe he might be in the third game if they decide to make another one.

This game was really good and had so many ways to play it. You want to be a ninja and so sneak kills? You can do that.

You want to blow up monsters in a blaze of glory? You can do that, too.

Are you a player who likes doing all the side quests first then the main story or vice versa? You can do either and no one would judge you for it.

I loved Castellanos’s attitude in this game. He didn’t take any shit from anybody and knew already that he was better off working alone than with anybody else unless he really had no choice in the matter. The only people that he didn’t give shit to was Hoffman and Torres and I think that’s because they made quite the impression on him during their first meeting.

This would be for seasoned gamers that like horror games and aren’t afraid to get scared at any moment. The storyline was very interesting and there are many ways to play it then just killing everything in sight. (You’ll do that anyway but still….) The options are out there. Hope you all enjoy this thrilling horror game as much as I did and I’ll see you guys next time!

Danganronpa V3: The Weirdest Game Ever

twinfinite.netI know I’m a little late with this one and I think I say this every time, I disappear from the grid. Nonetheless, even when I’m gone and doing things in reality, I’m always thinking about you guys and what I can rant about to you all next time. Other than that I hope all of you are excited about enjoying the holidays with your friends and family like I am.

For today, I’ll be talking about the one and only Danganronpa V3 that we’ve waited so long for. I was so excited when I heard this game came out and couldn’t wait to take it home and play it. My first impression from the game was that it was going to be another killing game, Monaca is going to make her grand debut and Makoto is definitely been turned into a robot.

Oh come one, like you guys weren’t thinking the same thing as me when you saw the cover of the game. It looks like Makoto went sci-fi on us to take on whatever it is he was about to fight. That’s what I think at least.

Anyway, the game starts off with the usual ‘I don’t know where I am or why’ opener the only difference with this one is that it starts with a girl which really surprised me. Before you say, ‘but their was a girl as the main character in Despair Girls!’  I’m not going to count that game only because they weren’t the same type. Despair Girls was an adventure/shooter game while the other were mystery/graphic novel type games. If every Danganronpa game was the same type then I would have counted it, since its not I’m not going to.

Later, in the prologue it kind of blew my mind that they would make several Power Rangers like versions of Monokumas and call themselves the Monokubs. I thought it was weird and hilarious at the same time. Being weird because I thought at first that we were going to do this game with the original Monokuma.

Silly me for thinking that.

aminoapps.comHe showed up as evil as ever and his the father of the Monokubs. Some people have a theory that the mom is Monomi from the second game. Whether that’s true or not is totally up to you unless they bring out a dlc or something with the Monokubs back story. The only thing that I didn’t like about Monokuma in this game was that his voice changed a bit. I just chalked it up as a new mastermind a new Monokuma voice, but then again if you listen there are times like in Punishment Time moments where his voice goes back to the original one which for me I felt like the creators got a little lazy in that aspect.

fanpop.comOther than that it was weird, crazy and intense as the other games before it with jaw dropping plot twists. One of the things I did like was how they didn’t care about how dirty and potty mouthed they could be which is probably why they added the Miu character. Miu turned out to be one of my favorites besides Kokichi, of course. Miu wasn’t afraid to say what was on her mind, but got totally shy when someone talked back to her in mean way which was really funny to watch. Kokichi was that wild card player that loved to stir things up anyway, he could even if that meant hurting other and being hated all the time.

Speaking of characters, this game really got me when it came to guessing their talents and finding out who the culprit to the crimes were. Usually in the previous games, it was really obvious to guess their talents and guess the culprit. In this one they made it hard as hell because their appearance didn’t match their talents except Miu and Himiko. During trials when you were on the right track on finding out the killer usually they would get really nervous and sweaty and stuff, but almost none of them did that which made it extra hard to pick the killer unless you rrrrreeeeaaaallllllyyy paid attention to the case.

fanpop.comRantaro is another thing I wanted to talk about. In the end, you never really find out what his ultimate talent is. They say in the game he was the Ultimate Survivor then later in the story you find out that its a title given to the ones who survive the previous killing games. So, what was he called before that?

If they never shed some light on that in the near future then we may never know.

Another thing I noticed was all the games that they make you play during the trials. Maybe a lot of people complained that their weren’t enough mini games in it, personally I was happy with the amount. However, with this game they added a lot more mini games which kind of annoyed me a little but only a little.

Looking back on it, it seems I have a lot to complain about with this game, but don’t get me wrong this was a wonderful nonetheless. This is just my own personal opinion about certain aspects of the game while I played it. The storyline was very powerful and dark as usual with that usual hint of mystery in it. If your into these types of games with mystery, trials, murder and mini games then you’ll want to give this game a try. Whether you’ve followed the series or not your going to be in for a wild ride!

mobygames.comWarning: This post does contain spoilers!!!

Hello everyone!

Today’s game is going to be about the adorable RIME game that was developed by Tequila Works and Tantalus Media. I know I should have talked about this game a long time ago, but you guys know how it is outside of the internet. We got to deal with things in reality, ugh!

Anyway, I really loved this game it was so cute and adorable with a hint of mystery. It’s about a boy who washed up on the shore on an island that looks like had an ancient civilization on it at one point. Obviously, he’s trying to find a way off the island with the help of a spirit fox. As the game progresses, you can’t help but make up your story about what happened and what’s going on with this island.

My theory I got was that this was an ancient civilization that fell because they couldn’t get anymore power from the tower. As the civilization died the royal family was lost and forgotten, but destiny has brought the lost heir back to the island hundred of years later. So, he can restore it back to its former glory.

gameup24.wordpress.comThat’s what I got out of it, but found out in the end that I was wwwaaayyyy off from the truth. With the island expanding into a world and with unknown dark, blob monsters chasing me all over the place the ending revealed to me the truth of the story. It turns out the boy was dead all along and he was being guided by the fox through what I’m guessing was limbo to reach heaven. Each new part of the island represented one of the 5 stages of grief and the blob monsters represented the dark souls that lost on the way to heaven which is why they were chasing him everywhere. It was kind of a ‘if I’m not going to make it neither are you’ situation, so they wanted to drag him down.

Basically, the boy knew he was dead but didn’t want to accept it and tried to find a way back to his father. In the end, he finally accepted that not only was he dead, but was never going to go back to the land of the living and accepted his fate and went to heaven.

When I saw these scenes at the end that put it all together I was like “Nnnnnnnnoooooooo”. I was so mad that we went though all that and not get a happy ending and to find out that he was dead the whole time. You really get attached to him and the fox and some of these puzzles got me a little. The most frustrating puzzles were the ones where I was getting chased by the giant bird all the time, you couldn’t go anywhere without it on you ass.

Even if you’re not the type of player that likes to make sure you collect everything in the game, I really recommend that you do because it gives vital hints to what happened in reality. This is a game for everyone especially for beginner players that like adventure and puzzle games. I really liked this game, it really played with my heart in this one and I hope when you guys play it, you’ll like it just as much.

Is Fire Emblem: Echoes a tough game?

Nintendo UK.comThis is a game I never got around to playing until now. It was developed by Intelligent Systems and was made a while ago before I got my hands on it. The story revolves around two people Alm and Celica who were pretty much attached the hip when they were kids. But, after an attempted attack from a vicious knight named Slayde who tried to kidnap Celica after recognizing her as the lost princess of the country. Having being separated for years, they obviously take different paths in order to bring peace back into the world.

Warning: Possible spoilers ahead

Alm becomes a warrior and a leader to the rebellion force that calls itself the “Deliverance”. The rebellion’s goal is to take out King Rudolf who rules the opposing country that’s trying to take over theirs.  They all hope that Alm can take out King Rudolf before things get too bad. On the other hand, Celica has become a warrior priestess who believes that using violence is wrong (even though she’s taking out people left and right herself) and that there is a peaceful solution to this crisis.

Her solution is to find Mila who is the goddess of their country that is supposed to be keeping their country, at least, nice and peaceful. Find her and ask her why is she letting everything go to shit lately? I think it’s painfully clear that something must have happened to her if she’s in charge of making sure nothing happens to the humans in her domain.

Fire Emblem GodsWhile I’m talking about Gods and such might, as well talk about Duma and Mila. Duma and Mila ancient gods that happen to be siblings, too. When it came time to rule over the humans they both disagreed about how they should be ruled. Duma thought that only the strong should be in control have all the wealth and power and rule over the weak. While Mila thought that everyone should be equal and share the wealth and prosperity. Since, they couldn’t agree they decided to split the world in half so each god had a place to rule and made a contract with each other that forbid the other from ever interfering with their side of the world.

Doing so would mean total war.

Personally, I understand their ruling styles, but the same time I see the flaws in it. Duma believes that as long as there is a strong leader then the weaker people will be led to prosperity. What actually happens is strong people becoming evil, angry and only thinking about themselves while the weaker people become poor and treated like dirt. During Mila’s rule, she’s the complete opposite of Duma, believing that as long as everyone is equal and share everything things will be just dandy. Problem with is the people became spoiled, weak and even when people were starving to death because they were too nice and gave away everything they had. So, its same to say that if they combined their ways then the world would end up just right.

Now would I consider Fire Emblem Echoes a hard game? It’s a bit of a challenge I will say that. Is it an impossible game to beat? No, but I do wish I could have lowered the difficulty a little bit because for one if one of your players dies they are permanently dead until you find a revival well (which doesn’t even allow you to revive all your characters). These wells are a bit hard to find, so you better be sure that you’ve searched every nook and cranny when you’re in a dungeon or could have missed it without knowing it.

Also, I didn’t even know about the revival wells until I did some digging in the internet about what to do about bringing dead players back into the game. It wasn’t even in the tutorial which I  don’t even know why. I would like to think that would have been a nice little detail to tell the gamer playing this freaking game. Also, one other thing that you figure out, eventually, is that you need to talk to everyone just in case they want to join your group. For me, I like to have as many people in battle as I can, but it sucks when most of them have died and I haven’t gotten to a well yet.

BehindTheVoiceActors.comI’m loving some of these characters though. One of my favorites is Gray who is that strong, confident and funny type that says things that just make you fall in love with him right away. Another favorite is Faye (even if I’m a little concerned about her) she’s another childhood friend of Alm and has been in love with him for as long as she can remember and that love as not only grown, but is bordering total obsession. During the talks they have during some of the battles, you can tell that she would do anything for Alm and makes it painfully clear that she’s into him, but he doesn’t seem to be taking the hint. It kind of makes you feel sorry for her.

The storyline is really good and the characters are really interesting. I’ve had several theories about Alm’s identity throughout playing this game, but I’m not going to tell you who he really is. But, if there is one thing we do know it’s that Alm and Celica do not end up together. No matter how much we want them to, they don’t. That’s not really a spoiler if you’ve watched the beginning cutscenes. I’ve enjoyed playing this game and if you like RPG/adventure games then you will, too.

Utawarerumono The Anime

Youtube.comHello everyone!

I said that I was going to talk about this a while back, but now I’m finally going to talk about the anime show “Utawarerumono”. I played the game earlier and it was super awesome, so expectations for the anime were pretty high.

I wasn’t surprised that a lot of the events in the game happened in the anime, as well. The only differences between the two would have to be that they went into more detail about the people who we fight against in the war so we get a better grip about who they are. Also, most of the lewd moments and mentions in the game aren’t in the show to my utter disappointment. I was kind of looking forward to that.

For those of you, who haven’t played the game or watched it yet. It’s about a guy named, Haku, who wakes up with amnesia to find out that his world is no longer his own. Giant insect creatures, giant acid blobs, magic, people with cat ears and tails are now the norm in this world and he travels with his savior and friend, Kuon, to the capital in order to find his place in the world.

What he doesn’t know is that his life is about to get a whole lot more complicated once he gets to the capital.

All of the characters in the anime are just as hilarious as they were in the game and it still keeps that mystery and action element going the whole time. I truly loved it and hope that there is more coming soon. If you guys don’t want to watch it or play it then the manga is always out there for your enjoyment. If your into action, adventure, mystery and hot cat-eared people everywhere then this is definitely for you. Enjoy!

Corpse Party: School Edition

Blu-ray.comThe Corpse Party anime series and previous games are becoming increasingly more popular as time goes by. It’s so popular that I can’t see this series dying any time soon. So, without further ado, I would like to talk about one the most recent game in the series, ” Corpse Party: School Edition”.

If I had to give this game a nickname it would the “Filler Edition”, the reason being that it’s the same exact game as the first Corpse Party, but only this time they explain the missing holes that the first one left this time. Things like what happened to Kishinuma after he got knocked out by zombie teacher. How did he not die? How did he escape? And so on and so forth.

These types of things got on my damn nerves because the first game wouldn’t even hint at what could have happened. It was they were saying,” Well, they made it out alive and that’s all that matters. Don’t sweat the details!” No! I will sweat the details because I don’t know about you guys, but not knowing certain details or all the details when it comes to the storyline is a bit of a pet peeve of mine. So, when they finally brought out a game that will reveal all those mysteries, I was super happy about it.

Pinterest.comThe gameplay and graphics are pretty much the same as the first (besides the fillers), so if you’ve already played the first one and don’t mind playing it again then you have the advantage because you know almost everything that happens in the game. If you’re not in this fortunate position and are about to play Corpse Party for the first time, then you’re in for a ride. But, if you’re not into horror/RPGs then this might not be for you. I enjoyed watching the mysteries unfold and I thought it was totally worth playing this game all over again. I hope you all feel the same after playing the school edition.
