When I reviewed Endless Space earlier this month, I did not believe it was worth the price being charged for the game. Now, almost 50 gameplay hours later, my opinion remains the same, but I have some ideas about ways to improve the game.
One should never judge a game by its multiplayer. But when the multiplayer is all you get, it’s pretty hard to ignore.
Ubisoft’s original god-game, From Dust will be landing a spot in Google Chrome. This news was released via the Facebook fan page, and fans are pretty stoked. The game was well received, with decent reviews from gorgeous graphics, and unique gameplay. It follows an island tribe whose adored god is controlled by the player. The goal is to create a habitable environment for the tribe to survive within. The game will be available for purchase in April.
I’m tired of hearing that Final Fantasy VIII was not a standout title in one of the greatest franchises known to gaming. Gamers have offered their opinions as to why VIII sucked, so I thought I would offer my honest opinion of why Final Fantasy is my number 1 game of all time, as well as refuting the claims of its suckiness.
Why People Didn’t Like It
Final Fantasy VIII introduced a new style of gameplay that is unconventional to the franchise. Magic is not gained as the player progresses, rather it can be drawn from various enemies and drawpoints. That magic is then junctioned with each character’s stats such as strength, magic, status attacks, elemental attacks, and other defenses to name very few. In order to get these stats to high levels, the game requires exhausting amounts of fighting and drawing; it gets old fast. Beside that, gamers were unhappy with the mechanics of the gameplay in general, being so unconventional and unfamiliar to the rest of the series.
Zombie games are a dime a dozen out there, with a few standing out, such as Left 4 Dead and its sequel. The newest zombie game out now is Dead Island. Now to be blunt, I have never owned or played a full zombie apocalypse game before; I was quite a wimp when I was younger. Now that I’ve played Dead Island, I can say I love killing tons of zombies. Now as I said, Zombie games are not a new idea, but Techland was able to pull people into their game with an island paradise gone straight to hell.
Oh, hell. I’m never one to buy a game at full price, but Resident Evil holds a special place in my heart. It was the first game to ever haunt my nightmares… I’m not afraid to admit that I still sometimes need a babysitter after playing.
Resident Evil: Mercenaris for the Nintendo 3DS was a total waste of my money. After the first hour of playing I made a mental list of things I would much rather spend my $40 on, and after two hours, I did what any normal person would do. I returned the game and used the money to buy liquor and red hair dye.
Every gamer who has ever called themselves a gamer has played at least one Zelda game. Perhaps Zelda would be considered a “hipster’s game,” for they who jailbreak their Ps3 and pimp their PC with liquid-cooling for Crysis, but we have to consider that incredibly long-standing game titles stay popular for a reason (sorry, Final Fantasy, you would be an exception to this).
Is it possible for a game to better with each sequel? Yes, yes it is. Zelda: Skyward Sword has been considered by IGN to be “the greatest Zelda game ever created” –woah now.
