Diary of Fallout 4 – Pt1

13 Nov

Day 2

I’m not sure what the exact date is, but Codsworth assures me I’ve been in cryostasis for over two centuries. It was impossible to believe at first, but the last night in Sanctuary Hills has drilled the point home. The world as I knew it is over.


Day 3

Discovering the pip-boy lets me create daily log entries was nice, but putting the horror of the last few days – well, what feels like a few days – into words makes it even harder to deal with. After yesterday’s entry, Continue reading

Fallout Shelter: The Facebook Game for Android

13 Aug

Fallout Shelter, the mobile game to tease players who are just dying for Fallout 4 to come out in November, is finally out on Android along with a patch for the iOS game adding new mobs to potential room disasters. Anyone who was expecting anything close to a normal Fallout game will be sorely disappointed, but that’s their fault for being idiots and expecting a mobile game sim to be more than a mobile game sim.

Similar to Tiny Tower developed by Nimble Bit for the iOS and Android, players build a massive vault from the ground down for one purpose: Make it bigger. Fallout Shelter is infinitely more complicated than Tiny Tower, however, whose formula is wait, collect resources, build, repeat. In Fallout Shelter, there is a lot of wait and repeat. Thankfully, there’s far more to do between waiting than in Tiny Tower.   Continue reading

World of Warcraft: Legion

6 Aug World of Warcraft: Legion

World of Warcraft: Legion

The new World of Warcraft expansion has officially been announced today at Gamescon. Titled World of Warcraft: Legion, players head to The Broken Isles after Gul’dan brings back Illidan and delves into the Tomb of Sargeras. With the level cap raised to 110, players can expect several changes to World of Warcraft including a new class and a new honor system. Continue reading

The Amiibo Bubble

5 Aug

Once upon a time, a company produced lots of cute little toys for a reasonable price. They were so popular they zoomed off the shelves, hitting eBay where prices skyrocketed. Rare toys reached thousands of dollars. People made a living off of that resale, quitting their jobs to make sure their fingers poised for online sales. Obsession gripped the market. Then the Beanie Baby Bubble crashed.

Oh, you thought I was talking about Amiibos? Continue reading

Reasons to Buy Rare Replay

3 Aug

Alright, so I don’t own an Xbox One yet, but I’m going to within the year. How else will I play Gears of War 4? That’s not coming out until next year, however, so the first game I’m going to buy for my new system is going to be Rare Replay and here’s why you should grab it too.

Thanks to shitty craftsmanship, the Xbox 360 is a ticking time bomb waiting to shit itself into oblivion. Every gamer is familiar with the red ring of death so picking up Rare Replay ensures I can play some of my favorite Xbox 360 games without shelling out cash to keep the system in working condition. However, companies walk a thin line when asking you to repurchase their games. Atlus (Shin Megami Tensei) keeps things interesting by adding new gameplay. Gearbox Software (Borderlands) makes the price so ridiculously low that why not buy it three or four times? Square Enix (Final Fantasy) just wants you to buy the game again because they kind of did some stuff to the art. Rare Replay goes a step further, giving you THIRTY games that span multiple systems – like from that Xbox I never bought and my N64 which doesn’t work any more.

Not every game is going to be a winner, but here’s what I’m looking forward to: Continue reading

Agar.iOh My God, I Can’t Stop Playing

31 Jul

My latest app addiction, Agar.io is fun, challenging and incredibly simple. Originally created by Reddit user Zeach as a browser-based game, it has since been Greenlit by Steam and was released this month for Android and iOS. Incredibly addictive, it’s a game that will keep all ages entertained for hours.

Players are small circles (called cells) that grow only by eating smaller cells. The game has two rules: 1) Eat anything smaller than you and 2) Don’t get eaten. Continue reading

Beta Review: The Flame in the Flood

30 Jul

In October of 2014, I found the Flame in the Flood on Kickstarter and gave them all my money. Okay, I gave them some money because the game demo looked phenomenal. Now, after spending a few weeks with the Beta, I cannot wait for the finished product.

So far, the game delivers on nearly everything developers, The Molasses Flood, promised. The art is even prettier than the demo suggested and the music always sets a perfect tone. The rafting is different every time I start a game, the items I find to help me survive change, and the islands I can land at vary so much I’m never bored no matter how many times I have to start over. Survival depends on what you collect, how well you can steer down the river, and whether you avoid the black wolf or not.

Honestly, the game is hard –  Continue reading

Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell: Short and Bloody

5 Feb

The stand-alone expansion to Saints Row IV, Gat Out of Hell embodies everything that I have come to love about the franchise from Volition, Inc. With old friends returning to join the fight, or get really dead, I was addicted to every second of the disappointingly short addition.

After defeating the evil Zinyak in Saints Row IV, the Saints and their President have commandeered a space ship since Earth is, you know, exploded. There they prepare a birthday party for Kinzie Kensington, hacker extraordinaire and Saints Lieutenant. Matt Miller, former rival gang member, finds the Ouija board owned by none other Alistair Crowley and convinces the other Saints to use the board with him. Unfortunately for the President (and fortunate for us) they contact none other than Satan himself who has decided the only man for his little girl is the leader of the Saints. Opening a portal from Hell, Satan sucks the President away and leaves Johnny Gat with no other option but to go rescue his friend. Kinzie, not to be left behind, forces him to let her come along. Continue reading

Top 5 Games of 2014

19 Jan

With all the games that came out last year, it shouldn’t have been easy to pick the top five games of the year. Instead it was effortless. With no further ado, let’s get down to it (especially since I’m half a month late)! Continue reading

Persona Q: Quality Fan Service

15 Jan

There is no doubt in my mind that Persona Q was made by Atlus Games as pure fan service. The jokes aren’t too well thought out, but the main story is creative and detailed, adding a new layer to the ongoing Shin Megami Tensei world.

Fans of Persona 3 and Persona 4 start off their journey with Persona Q with a tough choice, which main character they will take control of. Both Minato Arisato (P3) and Yu Narukami (P4) are available along with the entire cast of both games since Persona Q takes place in the middle of story of both Persona 3 and Persona 4. No one is dead yet and neither team has conquered their enemies.

Whoa, whoa, whoa! some of you are saying. How can both casts be fighting Shadows at the same time? The story lines take place a year apart! Continue reading
