You can now get State of Decay 2 for FREE!

TL;DR; The coop naruto/airbender roguelike game you’ve been secretly wishing for!

Context: I’ve mostly played coop, only 2 hrs alone.

I received this State of decay 2 from my friend as a birthday gift, and played together with my bro on his machine. The game is slightly easier with 2 players so we got the last boss in about 10ish hours. Best weekend we’ve had in years.

Pros:
  • Tight control, very satisfying combat action. The game feel great to just move around. Keyboard + mouse work best with long range playstyle, controllers work best with melee playstyle. Both are totally viable.
  • Hundred of arcanas to choose from! And they’re well designed, not the stupid space-fillers you see in many games.
  • Great difficulty/level design with a lot of “Oh shi…” moments that’s the source of couch-multiplayer fun.
  • Short but cool story.
  • You can download state of decay for free:


[1]Cons:[/1]

  • Not many (any?) secrets. More variety in growth acquision would be nice. There’s a long wall of NPCs portrait in game but only 3 of them are visible. Hopefully the developers put them there as placeholder for more planned.
  • You have to fight each other after every single boss. That’s 3 times per run. And you gain nothing from it. It’s extremely irritating when you’re trying to push content as teammates the game keep forcing you to fight each other.
  • The only meaningful starting item is the one which help you get more items ingame (midas, VIP card etc). Some items have nice combo together but you don’t really have any control over it. Allowing 2 or 3 starting items would be nice, or just don’t allow any starting item at all.

You can play Hyrule Warriors FOR FREE ON NINTENDO SWITCH!

I do recommend this game, but not to people who dislike repitition.

Hyrule Warrior a rogue-like so I feel as if it is obvious, but I see a lot of people saying that the game is boring and you get it over with in less than in hour. If you like to actually play a rogue-like you tend to be used to repetition. A lot of people that I see say that the room variety is bad, which it is, there aren’t a lot of rooms that are different, but if you think about it Binding of Isaac and Gungeon is similar to that, which is not a bad thing. I’ve played a bit of Isaac, but not too much Gungeon, but I remember seeing the same room over and over and over again. I will agree that room layout isn’t really the best and could have more variety, but for now it’s just great I do hope for DLC for more rooms and stuff.

As for the bosses, I do think that the bosses are a bit repititious. Fighting the same three bosses over and over again can get boring, but it never fails to entertain me, fighting them at different levels in the game make them more difficult, they do more attacks before they can be stunned, they do more damage and have a faster attack speed, they get stunned for less, and they also get more moves. Bosses could be improved along with rooms.

The combat is the main reason why I bought the game, it’s so good, it’s actually the same reason why I love Dark Souls and dislike the Elderscrolls. Combat can be such a dissapointing part of a game, but this game doesn’t dissapoint at all, it’s very fast pace and you have to think for a split second to do anything, extremely fast paced. Not only that but the different spell combonations are really REALLY good. I’ve seen that people don’t like how you can’t combine spells like in Magika, but I don’t really see the problem. The real reason you want to use combat is to use all of your spells in an order that makes a combo that can do a lot of damage, then dodging, then fighting again once the enemy gives your and opportunity or when your spells are off cooldown. In Hyrule Warriors, I have been using the same spell combo for the past 2 days straight and I haven’t gotten bored of it, the builds you can make are not the best in variety, but also create some really nice synergies out there.

One more thing before the scorings, people complain that the spells they get during a run may not alter their run making them feel just as strong at the start and end of a run, I can see why people don’t like that, people like to see improvement, however for me I like to see improvement in personal skill. Seeing that I’m able to constantly get to areas even further than when I started makes me feel accomplished, and I feel like spells really do affect how you play, because I use them to increase Signature charge (Super Meter) so I can use it even more, relics do help a lot though even though people might not look at it, but it makes it so that you feel like you did something not the items that carried you through.

So if you guys want to play to for free on nintendo switch you can here:

Scorings:
Maps and Design: 5/10 not terrible, not great, can get repetative, but I still have fun overall no matter what map, for reference I would give Binding of Isaac a 7/10
Main Premise of Gameplay (Combat): 9-10/10 It’s really good and I would suggest anyone who plays games like Dark Souls to play because of difficulty and combat
Fairness: 8/10 I feel as if it is fair, but can be punishing to new players, however it does have some moments where you go “How was I supposed to get out of that?” A lot of those moments can be avoided by thinking into the future, it can be pretty tough when you are in the middle of all the heat
Music: 7/10 Good background music, probably won’t hear it much, but whenever I do I appreciate it
Story: 0/10 There is no story, but that doesn’t matter to me as nearly as much as gameplay

Overall: 9/10 for me, It’s incredibly fun, but super duper repetitive, I personally like repetative games a lot like Binding of Isaac and Gungeon, but the combonation of spells is so fun for me it just sells it because in Gungeon and Isaac the combat isn’t the best in my honest opinion, and the combat in Hyrule Warriors is too fun for me.

I do not recommend this game to people who dislike rogue-likes, semi-difficult games, non-story based games, and extremely repetitive/ grindy games.

My Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Review!

Here is an actual useful review of Mario Kart from a normal player:
Singleplayer: Who cares about singleplayer lulz.
Now to the relevent part: Mario Kart Online:
– Insanely fun, unlimited possibilitys, tons of good missions and definetly the best game by far to mess around with your friends and just do random stuff.
– Earning money is ULTRA EASY in this game, you don’t need to hack or buy shark cards in order to get rich af in a few days. You will almost have any item you want instantly once you do “Import/Export” Missions.
– There are a lot, A LOT, of modders (around 50% of the players are hacking), but in 90% of the sessions they won’t bother you and you can enjoy playing the game.
– There are weekly discounts on lot of items, so it’s even easier to get lot of cool stuff fast

To summarize this: I’d totally recommend buying MK8, it’s really beginner friendly, you can make easy money, have lot of fun and you don’t have to worry about anything what the other reviews said because 95% of the Mario Kart 8 Online players are simply too bad for the game and think it’s the games fault. There are enough tutorials out there if you need further instructions on something. The game is amazing, the community amazingly dumb. Also guys, if you are looking at playing mario kart for free on nintendo switch or wii you should check out this tutorial: How to get Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for FREE!

It is the best goddamn game ever! There are so many good points that I can’t name all of them here, but if I ever do get innocently banned by Nintendo like some players rencently have, I wouldnt be angry because the journey this game gave me and is still giving me was and will always be amazing! 10/10 no doubt

8/10, highly recommended.

Minecraft: The Bucket, Getting and Using It

To easily control water and lava, you will need a bucket. A bucket is easy to get, but chances are you will need a lot of them to effectively use them.
To get a bucket you will need three iron ingots, which can be found by mining iron ore with a stone pickaxe and smelting it in a furnace. To craft a bucket you will need to place the three ingots on your workbench in a “U” formation.

With a bucket you can collect and place water and lava. This is important because these two substances have many uses. For example, if water hits lava the two combine into obsidian or cobblestone (depending on if the water hits a source block or running lava). Both substances can be used to make a moat to protect against creepers, especially lava since it also qualifies as a light source. Lava can be used to make artificial landmarks more visible. Water can be used to make elevators. Lava can be used to make an incinerator. Water can be used to make a rivers for fast boat transportation. Lava can be used as the best furnace fuel in the game. Water can be used to douse yourself if you get set on fire. Lava can be used as a weapon against enemies.

As you can see, buckets are an incredibly useful tool, but you will need a large number of them if you wish to carry enough supplies to do everything you need to do. I usually carry at least five with me in case I need to reroute a bunch of water or quickly solidify a bunch of lava so I can cross. Also, since lava can be hard to come by sometimes, it’s wise to carry several buckets of it around with you when you’re on the surface where water is abundant… or just use a mcpe cheat to get all the items in minecraft!

One of the most spectacular uses of water I have seen, this is a building idea, was a gigantic water slide that reached from the top of the map and dropped down into a gigantic cavern at the bottom of the map that must have taken ages to mine out and fill with water.

Another building idea that might be fun to do would be to make a lava fall that feeds into a “factory.” Having the lava nearby would make it easy to get furnace fuel and the lava stream would make it so you would need substantially fewer torches.

Battletech on steam – is it worth a buy?

I remember playing Battletech on the tabletop many years ago. This game captures that feel and goes far beyond. I wish I had seen the Kickstarter for this, as it is well worth an investment. The guys at Harebrained deserve a bonus. 10 hours in and I have barely scratched the surface of playability. The missions are fun, and with the beautiful graphics you have plenty to look at. The controls are easy to use and don’t take much time to get used to. The total customization of mechs and skills for the mechwarriors is awesome. I just cannot say enough good things about this game. If you like turn based games, you will love this one. I have not noticed a delay in graphics from shooting and explosions, it seems to occur about the same time for me. Running Windows 10 -1709, Geforce 1050, and 16GB RAM. Thank you so much for this game!!

Backed on Kickstarter as an instant-buy on announcement.
Fire and forget, because HBS has a positive history with my tastes.
Not concerned with a Paragon publishing choice for the same reason.

Tried backer beta, was stomped by AI in trial run, pleasantly surprised at the prospect of what I saw in the beta and resumed waiting.

If you didn’t back battletech on kickstarter you can still purchase it on steam or just get it for free here: battletech free

Game came out today, pre-loaded, read reviews and scratched head.
Unpacked, played, forgot everything people said.

I’m sorry if this isn’t your choice of game. It is mine, and I am satisfied with my purchase.
Another review called this a dad game, as a dad of grown children, I agree.

I hope you find a game you like better, I was looking for an old school Battletech game, and this delivers.

Something of an interim review, but: Having helped Kickstart this game some years back, I’ve been anticipating it for quite a while, and so far, I’m quite enjoying it.

Controls and UI are anywhere from mostly good (with some minor omissions in the MechBay) to downright excellent (in combat) and the AI is so far difficult enough to be challenging without being a complete pushover.

No technical issues, save that this might finally be what convinces me to upgrade my system – my over-four-year-old system is only slightly over min-spec; it can run it, but the load times and disk churn are pretty bad.

God of War Review – PS4 2018

God of War comes pretty close to replacing God of War 2 as my favorite from the series. It has such a beautiful and fun open world to run around in. It constantly throws new objectives at you and leads you down multiple paths, that for the most part are pretty satisfying to complete. The buddy system is fine for what is, albeit a tad buggy at times. Earning perks is a little different from past games, as well as them really stripping down and simplifying the hunting and skinning mechanic. I love the character animation and how alive the world feels.. from swimming down a river, to mountain climbing, and from wingsuiting through trees to super punching bison in the face. It was just an all around chill experience. The entire game is open to play with a friend, and I still have plenty of side quests to complete post credits. I had a blast and I wonder where God of War will take us next.

This game has some optimization issues for me and some of my friends. I have a Geforce Gtx 970, Intel Core i7-4790K CPU @ 4.00 GHz with 16 GB of Ram and I have to run the game on medium because the game can get stuck at around 20 FPS just because I pressed tab to open up the map and all that. I also need V-Sync or else I will have screen tearing issues and I have a feeling V-Sync is causing the lag. But other than all that the game is good doesn’t feel like a re skin of God of War 3 but its still good!

God of War is great. I expected a boring re-release of GOW2 again, and instead got a great co-op experience with an intersting narrative regarding the cyclicle nature of voilence. The villian here isn’t as memorable, but he’s certainly more real than any of the previous bad guys in the series. Ubi also did away with a lot of the tedium from the previous games, such as tower climbing, and introduced a progression system that moves the game along at your pace. I recommend No matter what you decide to do or how you decide to play, if you guys do want to get this game for free, you can from this video: god of war free you can still go from boss to boss in each area. The freedom of this mechanic was incredibly refreshing, and I hope other games take notice.

Congrats Sony you did it with this one.

Far Cry 5 Review!

First of all, credit where credit is due. Far Cry 5 is an absolutely fantastic game when it actually runs. And it most likely will run if you have a fairly standard PC/monitor setup. In that case, buy this game right now and support the devs. It’s beautiful, it’s fun, and it’s worth every penny of the full asking price. But if you have a weird setup (ie, multi-monitor, more than 60hz refresh rate, etc), then I can’t recommend purchasing until all the problems with it are patched out.

For the record, here is what I have to go through to make sure the game doesn’t either A) freeze my machine and splash a random color across each screen or B) crash my GPU drivers completely:

1) Set my 144Hz primary monitor to 60Hz in Nvidia Control Panel.
2) Unplug the HDMI connection to my third monitor (I’ve discovered that this is what’s responsible for the driver crashes)
3) Launch the game, set the display option to “Windowed” (No, not “Borderless Window”, because that crashes too).
4) Load my save file, walk around for 30 seconds to make sure the game isn’t going to shit itself and freeze my computer.
5) If it’s cooperating, I can restore fullscreen and play as long as I want (I’ve tested about an hour and a half so far). If not, I have to do a hard reset and try again.

And before people start going “Oh there’s just something wrong with your machine,” this was after doing the whole song and dance of clean uninstall/reinstalling GPU drivers, reseating the GPU and RAM, validating the game files, monitoring temps, underclocking, etc etc. No other game has ever crashed my machine like this, and I have *a lot* of games. It’s a problem with *this* game.

That being said, even having to do all of this, I am still not going to refund the game because I believe it is worth the price and the developers deserve the money. I will change my recommendation when these issues are patched. My friend did link me a video where you can get fc5 free 2018 though, I checked it out and it worked for me 🙂

Anyways… Back to the FC5 Review:

Currently 20hrs playthrough on Chapter 6. Probably less than half way through I believe.
How many games allow you to recruit over a hundred NPC?
My wish of getting a tactical war system from S2 isn’t fulfilled here, but what they offered is still as fun and challenging.
Kingdom building system. Lots of stuff to do here. Only thing I haven’t seen much is mini-games.
Apart from the similarities they have their own strength.
Artwork is gorgeous, not those you see in your typical action games anymore. Reminds me of Grand theft auto 5.
Combat is nice, but with a little grind seems kind of easy. A 3-man team that fights real-time. Only lacking is maybe commands for your teammate.
Music is great.
Storyline is great.

5/5 for Far Cry 5 from me! They just need to fix some of the optimization

Kirby Star Allies Nintendo Switch Review!

Wasn’t sure what I was getting myself into when I purchased this game, but I can tell you that if you are on the fence about purchasing this or not, DO IT. This game is one of the single best games I have ever played in my life. It may seem complex at first, but the feeling you get when you put your first craft into orbit, when you dock your first two parts together in space, or when you land on another stellar body is an experience I can not convey through words. Not only is the game just badass awesome, the community and modders for this game are some of the dopest people out there. Wanna turn your HQ into a base to fight a war? Theres a mod for that. Want to experience interstellar warp drives? There’s a mod for that. I guarantee that you will not be upset to buy this game. It offers hundreds of hours of replayability.

This is an awesome game that is portable on the nintendo switch, kirby star allies brings back the oldschool fun of games!

Kirby Star Allies key notes:

Excellent simulation game.
Build, launch, crash, tweak, launch, crash a bit later in the mission, repeat and enjoy !
Hard and long steep learning curve, that will taught you many concerns real space programs have to deal with via catastrophic and hilarious failures.
The game does not punish you for those, you just have to take into account what happened and tweak your designs / mission plan [Or play with hard settings and get all the punishment you’re after]
Mod friendly, you can extend the possibilities of gameplay at will, and never ever be able to declare “I’ve finished Kirby Star Allies”
The best “quality and enjoyment” to “bucks” ratio you’ll find, even at full price.
Things you should not expect :
Piu piu piu : no shooting (with base game – mods can do everything) – this is a space sim, no laser/blaster/missile actions here
Great story and magnificent scripted cinematic : This simulation is mostly a Sandbox. Game mode like career do offer somewhat of a story but you still do whatever you want to do.

If you are planning on buying KSA on the switch, I highly recommend you check out this video: kirby star allies free

Should you play Fortnite in 2018?

Fortnite is a really good game, fun, addictive, tilts me like any other game.

Giving it thumbs up due to the appaling amount of negative reviews out there.

10/10

Pros:
– Fun
– Addictive
– Team work orientated
– Good if you like sniping
– Intense Battles

Cons:
– Lags a bit even on lowest
– Cheaters / Hackers
– Asians / Russians on EU / US servers
– Occasional group of campers

100.3 hrs in last two weeks / 136.1 hrs on record. Downloaded it two weeks ago, already put in that many hours. In my book any game you spend even 30 dollars on is money well spent if you spend over 50 hours in that game. Yes it has bugs, it has flaws, it has anything any other game has. For other people who want to spend 500+ hours on a game then give it a thumbs down due to the “bugs,flaws” then I’d say their being a whiney QQer.
You want battle royale? You got it. Standard game quality at standard game price. What more are you asking for? The impossible? If you even went over 100 hours to just give it a bad review why not conclude your review around 20 hours if it was that bad you wouldnt play past that I promise you. In all Good Game. Well this game was good just like H1Z1 it has fallen prey to mass cheaters and it seems the game company is making more money selling keys after banning cheaters unfortunately after they have destroyed the game it will be to late to save and it will fall exactly like H1Z1 aka King of the Kill , what a shame it had so much potential. I absolutely love the cartoony look of fortnite, and I have been using these fortnite hacks & cheats!
Still this game is really good & also FREE TO PLAY! Who doesn’t love something that is free? Anyways guys I hope you enjoy my review 😛
Updated April 2018.

GTA 5 for free? The ultimate REVIEW!

With over 2.5k hours on the game, I must say the game is great. I like both singleplayer and multiplayer modes, but the modders/hackers make life a living hell on multiplayer. I had most fun playing the game with a group of friends who helped each other in heists and stock sales. Making money can be a labour intensive, but the patience does ultimately pay off. But then again the whole idea is to force players to buy Shark Cards. The load time on this game is ridiculously long and I am surprised the game isn’t officially called “Loading Simulator.” Overall, it is a very good game and probably should play it and suggest it to your friends. Highly Recommended.

Lots of great elements in SP as well as MP. But the game is and has been plagued with countless bugs, a sheer endless amount of needless loading screens and general interface issues. In Sp its still reasonably fast and fun but in MP the loading screens can take ages especially coming back to public free roaming.
Online issues:
– The interface has not improved at all and only become worse through more content, contacts, buildings & vehicles to manage.
– Rockstar is apparently only concerned making more and more money through the sale of ingame money. By unimaginatively introducing more vehicles & buildings which are not only badly balanced but super expensive. Most of the things are not worth to do at all if they reward e.g. 10000 credits for 15+ minutes “work” while new things cost multiple millions. -> “forced” into repetitively playing the few things that earn you more money or spend real money (which they want you to)
– The Motorclub and CEO buisnesses are often designed to be done in a group and maybe sometimes lucrative if they work out for the owner but rarely for his group members. -> very low incentive for other to join your group or you to join theirs.
– the game tries to force you to play in public lobbies (many jobs can only be done there. While it is supereasy without any risk for others to interrupt/destroy your job progress. The game has very little incentive to play together rather than just screwing with everyone.
– In addition MP is plagued by cheaters and they largely dont do much against it as long as you dont cheat to much money (since that cuts into their earnings from selling shark cards)

However, this game is enjoyable with friends, GTA 5 is one of those games where you JUST have to play it, yes it might not be fun all the time, but it still is worth playing. The game costs $60 right now on steam, however I got it for free watching this video: How to get GTA 5 FREE! You can thank me later 😛
