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

sagamar.co.zaThis 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.

Bendy and the Ink Machine

Youtube.comHi Everyone!

Today I’m going to be talking about a recently updated game called,” Bendy and the Ink Machine” that’s been receiving a lot of hype recently. It was made by TheMeatly Games;it’s a puzzle-horror game and available on Steam. It has a total different look than other horror games that we’re used to seeing. At first, you don’t think it’s that scary considering cartoon character posters are all over the walls and nothing as come to kill you yet.

stagevu.comLater, things start to go from, “okay, this isn’t scaring at all” to “holy shit! What was that?!”.  Especially, when ‘Bendy’ the main monster in this case starts popping up out of nowhere just to scare the piss out of you. The story goes that we come to this old studio building that we used to work at because Joey called him one day and said he had something to show him. I don’t know about you guys but if someone I used to know suddenly calls me out the blue like that years later and doesn’t tell me what the his surprise is and tells me to come to my old workplace in a creepy fashion…..automatic red flag.

Maybe, I would go there just to satisfy my curiosity, but once I saw that he wasn’t there I would be gone so fast. Unfortunately, for us players we have to be a dumbass and go look for him and we end up seeing some disturbing stuff along the way.

I really like the feel of the game and cartoon style design of the game itself, it was really different. Now, this game is released in chapters and I think there are five in all and so far only two of them have been released. If your one of those gamers that likes to wait for the whole game to come out before playing that is totally fine. I’m not one of those gamers though. The moment a game I’ve had my eye on comes out, I’m running out to the nearest GameStop or buying it on Steam if it’s on there.

YoutubeThe more chapters that come out the more mysterious and dark the story gets. It goes from evil mad scientist theory to worshiping a Bendy demon and satanic rituals. You don’t know what the hell is going on at this point you just want to leave.

I don’t know if you guys do this too but after I’m done playing a game, I like going on Youtube and see if other players had the same reaction I did to certain things or found something I didn’t or just watch them freak out. Recently, I discovered this new channel called, “Gamers React Comp”, on Youtube where you can watch all these different players react to same scene in a game and at the end theirs a poll or who freaked out the most and who was the calmest out the bunch. Its pretty funny.

Moving on, this is a really easy game to play and if cartoon characters are your worst fear then look no further. The only bad thing about this game is its slow updates on the game itself. Before, I said that only 2 out of the 5 chapters are out right now and I think depending on how much support they get for each chapter of the game decides if the next chapter will ever come to light. So, please guys and gals support these people so we can finally know what the hell is going on in this game!!!

Thanks for Watching!

Little Nightmares

cracked-games.orgThis time around I’m going to be talking about the popular and recently out game called, “Little Nightmares”. The game was developed by Tarsier Studios in which I appreciate your guys hard work in making this game for us. I was interested in this game the moment the demo came it, so I was really happy when I heard that this game finally came out.

So, the story of the game itself is really up to your imagination, but I’m going to tell you guys what I think was happening in the game. You wake up as this little girl wearing a yellow raincoat. Yes, I say she because it feels like it’s a she. So, I say it’s a SHE!!! Their has been a debate what gender the little person is and I vote she because she a she vibe from the get go.

dualshockers.comAnyway, this is a stealth/puzzle game where you have to sneak past these gross, deformed fat people who want to kidnap you for some odd reason. I’m good at stealth, puzzles not so much. It takes a person like me a minute to figure some stuff out, not going to lie to you. While your venturing on what you finally figure out is a ship, you come to realize that the reason all this fat people keep trying capture is so they can eat you because you’re a delicacy in this world. So freaking delicious that they’ve got (I thought this was a daycare for the employees kids or something, at first. Okay, leave me alone.) a whole smuggling ring operation going on where they take kids, feed them and fatten them up until their ready to put in the oven.

Messed up, isn’t it?

I know the theme of this game is dark and creepy, but they made something so damn dark that you couldn’t even see where some stuff was nor where you were going despite having a lighter. You never see the faces of the children nor the main character’s. Even though, the game was meant to be creepy it also had a lot of funny and charming elements to it, too. I always laughed when the chefs would see me and make that funny elephant sound.

At one point in the game, it kind of felt like you entered Spirited Away for a moment because everything takes a Japanese style turn and the head mistress of the ship is a geisha with a white mask. If you look closely at some of their faces, some of them look like Japanese demon masks. I thought it was cool but kind of out of place with the rest of the game art style and if you’ve played the game then you’ll understand what I mean. Also, I’m very curious at what type of creature she is because I thought she was just a regular child surrounded by giant adults that want to eat her, but then whenever she gets hungry bad things start to happen to the point where you question if she’s actually good or not.

gamerevolution.comI would say she’s kinds like a vampire but kind off not. I’m not really sure but at the end she becomes totally badass and gets her revenge on all those people who tried to eat her throughout the entire game which I thought was awesome. In my mind, she may be a being that can suck the life out of you and steal powers, but she still gave those people what they deserved so good for her!

I really loved this game, its creepy charm and how dark the story becomes as time goes along. The controls are really simple, so even a beginner can play this game as long as they don’t mind the horror element. Really excited to see if another similar game is coming out anytime soon and I hope you enjoy Little Nightmares.

The Nonary Game: 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors

Loom Knits.comHello! Hope you guys are enjoying this lovely morning like I am.

Recently, played this game called the “999 Nonary game” created by Chunsoft. I don’t know if I ever talked about the previous games in the series, but there are similar games to this one that came out in the past, but I’m going to just stick with talking with this for now.

This one starts out just like the previous ones where the main character which in this case is a guy names, ” Junpei”, wakes up confused and locked in a place that they’ve never seen before with eight other people. The only thing that they can remember is that they were kidnapped by a guy wearing a gas mask. The mysterious kidnapper announces to them that they are going to play the “Nonary Game” where you solve puzzles in different rooms to try to find a way out of where your being kept.

Zeroescape.wikia.comSince, it’s a nonary game where everything has to do with nine the kidnapper tells them that they only have nine hours to find their way off the ship that their on before he sinks it and they all drown. Forced to work together without knowing anything about each other, they help each other in trying to escape. As you play the game though you realize that theirs more going on when people start dying and you realize that people are keeping some important secrets from you.

The only thing that I didn’t like about this one is that there a lot of math and science stuff that goes on trying to solve some of these puzzles. If there is anything that I really despise in this world, its math! The science and science facts that they kept throwing at me I really didn’t mind but the math puzzles sucked ass.

If you’ve never played this series before then I’ll let you all know that this has several endings. All of them are bad except for one and if you want to put in the extra work to get all the endings then go ahead but for this one it requires you redo the game over and over for to get a different ending. I’m kind of the one time gamer when it comes to things like this. But, you guys can go right ahead if you want to.

If your squeamish when it comes to blood and murder then I don’t recommend this but if your into it and solving the mysteries and solving puzzles then you’ll have a hell of time with this one. I really enjoyed the story and the different characters and how everything gets revealed in the end. The endings are always mind-blowing, I love it except the math. I hated the math parts but I still hope you guys enjoy the game.

Those Virtual Villagers

I love and hate those Virtual Villager games that the company Last Day of Work, LLC make. Their are about four games in all in the series with each having a different story and puzzle the player must figure out before their entire village dies from hunger or disease. I think depending on the game decides how hard the challenge is.

For example, I thought that Virtual Villagers 2 was super hard because almost every villager was a child. If you haven’t played these games before then I must tell you that children can’t do anything except run around and pick items on the ground. So, I have to wait painstakingly for them to grow up and hope that they don’t starve to death.

Another thing that will get on my nerves would be that whenever one of them is trying to master a skill or trying to discover something new, it would take forever. When I say forever I mean a couple of hours and unlike the Sims games that we all know and love, their is no fast forward button in the Virtual Villager games. I wish their was one, but their isn’t. So, the only thing that you can do is get out of the game and come check on them later.

The more villagers you have doing the same thing, the faster the process goes. But, you’ll find that some of the people you control are really, really stubborn and will try to do anything else except what  you want them to do. When that happens I practically make it my life’s mission to get them to do it no matter how much they don’t want to until they give up. Its like me saying to them,” I do believe I control this game, not you.”

Even though, I say this and that about the game I still find myself drawn to them. Also, I hope that they continue to make more Virtual Villager games in the future.
