Well Folks time for upcoming updates that will be on here later today or tomorrow
Risk of Rain
Sorry for the not many constant updates for the blog, getting myself ready for GDC in 1 month so I have to make sure everything is ready, portfolio is upgraded and to keep moving on up in the world.
Next Blog Post I am going to Review on Risk of Rain !!
Well guys its been awhile since my last game review so today I am going to talk about one of the most fun but difficult 8-bit type game that I have played so here it is my Review on " RISK OF RAIN ".
Risk of Rain is an action/adventure game with some rouge like elements while the game is set for the far far distant future, where space transportation is a regular and daily thing in peoples lives as these space cargo transfers people and other goods across the universes. So apparently there was one particular space cargo truck that had some special items inside of it until a series of very random and unfortunate of events that happened to this space transport that knocked it out of orbit as it crashes into a whole new and mysterious planet with its one survivor.
In Risk of Rain you have a good selection of Characters with of everyone one of them having different abilities and among others things an assortment of powers. To unlock each and everyone one of these characters you have to complete a certain task or accomplishment to gain a new character
like for example
The enforcer is a little slow but a very powerful character. When battling he can push enemies away with this Shield Slam which guarantees to keeping the enemies in a safe range to destroy and shoot them as his purpose is to Protect and serve against walls to prevent enemies to surrounding you.
Fire a short range blast for 160 dmg while hitting all enemies in that area.
Smash nearby enemies while pushing them away from you: 210 Dmg
The game is actually very interesting as its rules are the longer you are fighting in that world the harder its going to get followed by more and more hordes of enemies will start spawning. While spawning that will be some enemies that are a little bit ore even more stronger than you are so you have to be careful when that happens I mean I have already played this game and I had some tough times
Here is an example of the levels I have been to:
Action / Adventure Platform Game
Now I love games that can give a challenge and this game is definitely one of those types of games that can give a challenge to the single player aspects and even co-op aspects. While also giving you that 8 or 16 bit feel about the game which also is a plus in my book so if you want a game that is challenging and team up with some friends with a very fun game I say " This is a must have game for those who love Co-op Games and those who love a challenge.
Just to say if you do not like frustrating games where everything gets even more difficult then you should not play alone have some friends to help you out.
I give Risk of Rain * drumroll*
8.5 out of 10 A great game and something that is very fun.
Well everyone I am getting close to the end point of my college life and graduate with a Bachelor’s Degree...Thank god lol
I am ready to take these last semesters and work to the highest degree.
There will be a lot of things that will be added to the portfolio section *Coming Soon*
While coming up soon is you guessed it GDC (Game Developers Conference) which I am also very excited about I mean to meet other developers and people in the indie industry. To ask questions, wondering about their game and how it works which is giving you more ideas about your future Game ideas to present when your game is being set up at GDC or E3.
My passion to become a Game designer is something I really want to do bringing all my creativity into reality, inspiring other kids or people to become something great in the industry.
So I am going to tell you about the most funny, 4th wall breaking , explosive and the most random game ever to exist but equally the most fun game and for all the Deadpool Fans a must have!
As you see this game is about well our amazing Villain/ Hero Deadpool he wants his very own video game but along the way his game goes somewhat going down its budget but its Deadpool who needs budgets lol
The Deadpool game is a Third person arcade style action game. Followed by having its tons of combo based melee combat combining with gun shooting as the game gives you the choice to either go guns blazing and shooting down your enemies or you can go sword slashing and cutting them down.
Come on who doesn't want to be on a flying tiger while saving a hot looking princess I know I do. Well back to the review so Deadpool was at home sitting around while he gets an assassination mission to kill a man called "Chance White" and if you know Deadpool and he doesn't care about the target (he doesn't even know why he accepted it as he is just following the script that they game developers made for him even though with a little bit of editing from Deadpool)
Along the way you will meet several marvel hero's such as : Wolverine, Rouge, Psylocke and Domino of the X-Men. While dealing with the one of the villains from the X-Men: Sinister which is also another reason why Deadpool is going about causing as much chaos as possible because of sinister he lost his contract and if you know Deadpool you take something of his he will destroy something of yours.
Now to the game play segment of the "Deadpool The Game" okay there are some things dealing with the game play which some people didn't like that fights are very repetitive what I mean by that is you will always repeat the same moves over and over again which can be boring to a point but the fact that you can change your weapons to different combinations
Such like these examples here:
While having all of these weapons you can also upgrade Deadpool's abilities to have either a faster health regeneration or more ammunition. Also to tell about how to get these upgrades and weapons while going around the levels you will find Deadpool like coins around each of the 7 levels through out the game while getting these points throughout the game you can upgrade and buy certain upgrades through your price range of the collected points
Here is an example of the combat in the game
There are a lot of mechanics in the game to make it even more fun by adding the teleportation power to dodge basically almost all the enemy attacks and I think there is an achievement for you not to be hit at all throughout the game.
The game does have its issues from time to time such as a couple of glitches which do appear in certain boss fights where the boss will somehow get stuck in a certain area of the game. Another is the fact that when you defeated a boss like for example if they fell off the level and which didn't count as a kill so the next cut scene will not load thus you have to reload the level. So I have to admit as fun as this game is the glitches are somewhat annoying to deal with throughout the game but these glitches are somewhat a rare occurrence.
GAME CONCEPT ART !!
Even though the game has its glitches which are somewhat annoying to the game but still an extremely fun game to have and play I am going to give this game
7.5 out of 10 A fun game something good for the Marvel and Deadpool fans
Whats up everyone !
Its time to talk about a game that is very well polished and amazing story followed by a little repetitive game play but still a very fun game its time for REMEMBER ME "
The story is about the very far future of 2084 were people have found a way to collect memories into something called a Sensen something that is able to collect every single memory you have and in this time you could use money to retrieve a memory you have lost. While this technology was great being able to get all of these memories collected there was some underground things going on within the company called "Memorize" which is the company who invented the Sensen. The story is focused on the main heroin named " Nilin " she is a memory hunter that goes out and changes certain peoples memories to better help the more unfortunate people of Neo-Paris, while at the start of the game you are found in the Memorize lab were you see all the experiments of a couple of patients that they have but you seem to have forgotten or lost your memories somehow.
3rd person Action and Adventure Game
Remember Me's game play is something that is very interesting to me you begin with two sets of 3 sets of moves you are allowed to use for Punching and kicking your enemies but they have 4 different sets of your actions
There is the Damage Factor , Healing Factor , Cool Down Factor and Link Factor
While seeing these types of factors you allowed to have in your combo set you have to remember when you use one the other one might delete depending the ones you have already used in other combo sets. So you have to be careful what sets you use but you have to strategies which ones will be more effective in the fighting situation that you are in.
I have to admit as beautiful as the game looks with its amazing visuals, and well polished levels followed by great story there is something that was lacking with its random fights throughout the game they were very repetitive which made you lose interest but unless you don't mind those then you will really like this game.
Here is an Examples of a fight:
So from looking at this and how its story is the main thing that will get your attention throughout the game is the amazing visuals of their levels throughout the game and how it makes you really think on how 2084 will probably look that far into the future as the game is a big Sci-fi Game so here are some pictures on how beautiful these levels look
So I shall give you the final verdict:
This game is soo beautiful followed by as a huge Sci-Fi fan such as myself I will give capcom this they do have a very futuristic feel about most of their games and sure the battles are somewhat repetitive, alittle boring at a point its still something alot of people will be able to handle playing.
8.5 out of 10 !!!!
A game that is very fun and something you will probably like listening to the great story !! followed by Amazing visuals
The other Game Reviews will be added tomorrow !!!
There was a time when people though that video games were a big waste of time and it wouldn't help the world well then can I honestly say this to them " GUESS WHAT IT IS !!"
So recently there have been alot of charities lately that have been making over thousands of dollars actually we are going to look at one in particular a gaming charity site called "Gaming for Good" This site has been raising over 1 million dollars and reaching towards 11 million dollars in funds towards Save the Children
A link to GamingForGoodhttp://gamingforgood.net/
So from what I have heard and read about mostly about this site and all of its charity towards Malawi, Indonesia and Bangladesh for health programs.
See now video games have done alot of things over the years that are also pointed towards hospitals and helping making patients lives more fun instead of dealing with some sort of disease that is getting them to think negatively. Well its basically helping people train more when it comes to those dangerous situations in the operating room. I am also pretty sure for my theory that video games will be helping people more and more by using these games and gaming medical tools for training exercise and to help those in hospital patients recuperate.
In the daily news link here they talk about "Can video games fight cancer? Re-Mission 2 aims to give young patients a fun way to battle their serious diseases"
Well folks I am back from a long much needed vacation and now I have returned!!
So after I make this post I am going to be talking about " Video Games are helping the world today" followed by adding six game reviews.
