Video Game Tuesdays: Timeshift

Image result for timeshift

Boy oh boy, have I been having some fun with this game. This game is an FPS game for the Xbox 360 with one of the coolest game mechanics I have ever seen. It is fast paced with you just randomly picking up guns around the map and trying to destroy your friends, but you can also pick up time grenades. These grenades slow down time for anyone caught in them, so their movements are slow, and so are their bullets. Most of the game is spent running around trying to gather the best guns and just tossing around time grenades, it’s great.

The best part about this game is that you can have 16 players in a single lobby. This is a great thing if you are in a Discord server and just want everyone to be able to fit into one lobby at once. There is little to no lag, even when I am from the Northern US playing with people from the south, UK, and Ireland.

Honestly, I’ve already gotten so much playtime out of this literal 2 dollar game. 2 dollars and change at Gamestop. If you want to have some fun online with friends but don’t want to spend a lot of money, this is definitely the game for you. There is plenty of fun left in this installment.

I wish that there were newer Timeshifts available. It is so cheap because most people have forgotten the series ever existed, but honestly, it is so much fun! The time mechanic makes for such silly yet somewhat challenging gameplay and leads to a lot of laughs as everyone is struggling to get out of their own time bubble. This is something that I haven’t seen before or after this game was released, so I don’t think any other video games even included this mechanic in any way. This one is unique!

This game isn’t too difficult to find, you can get a PC or Xbox 360 version. I don’t think there is cross-platform play, but the games are cheap enough that you could get both versions without putting a dent into your wallet. I hope that more people start to play and enjoy this game before its servers eventually get shut down. I’m surprised that they are still up seeing how old the game is, but some people are still playing and looking for matches. You won’t be alone on the 360 version!

Overall, this was so much fun, and I will definitely be playing it often.

Video Game Tuesdays: Borderlands 2 Xbox 360

Borderlands 2 | Borderlands Fandom Wiki | FANDOM powered ...

I’ve been playing Borderlands 2 off and on for the past few weeks, and boy oh boy is it so much fun! I haven’t ever really played FPS singleplayer games, but I have been enjoying this one.

Borderlands 2 may be FPS, but it feels like more of a typical Action RPG that uses swords or something. I didn’t feel like I was being hindered by having to use a gun. I didn’t feel slowed down by having to aim instead of just slicing through hordes of enemies like I normally like to do. I actually felt more powerful by using my pistols!

I am not great at FPS games, but I feel that even a bad player like me could have fun. This game actually improved my skill in other FPS games, without making me feel as if there was too steep of a learning curve. I also didn’t feel like I was punished too much if I ended up using too many bullets because I suck at aiming. It gave me the chance to practice.

My main selling point of this game is the amazing multiplayer. Me and a friend have been playing this game once or twice a week together. The game saves our progress in the campaign, so we never have to worry about having to start from the beginning every time we boot up the game. We have had a third player in sometimes, and the game has 4 slots. The next time he couldn’t join, and we were still able to continue where we left off with him. The enemies weren’t suddenly too hard for two people to defeat, the game had balanced itself out. Did I mention that my friend lives in Ireland and I live near NYC? We play on Xbox 360 with little to no lag. Borderlands 2 really was amazing when it came to multiplayer design.

Also, one thing that was my pet peeve in multiplayer games was when you had to try to split up items. Like, if there was money, you would have to try to split it and figure out who would pick up what so that no one would be too poor to buy what they needed. This game automatically splits all the money between players. It even gives bullets to both players when someone picks up ammo. The only thing it doesn’t have is duplicates of every single dropped item, but trading is so easy that it isn’t a problem to trade stuff like health packs or guns or shields.

Oh, and lastly, you can get this game for 3 DOLLARS!!! 3 dollars if you buy it at Gamestop. Whether you buy it in store or online. 2.69 if you are a Pro member (like me!). So you basically get all of this fun, hours upon hours (How Long To Beat says the main story is 30 hours and Main +Extra is over 50 hours) for less than the price of a large fry or a Big Mac from McDonalds. To be honest, many of the Xbox 360 games are really cheap and you can still have lots of fun with them. You just have to buy Live to play online, but you get free games with Live too, so there’s no losing here.

I would definitely recommend this game to anyone looking for a fun, cheap game to play on your own or with friends.

Webtoon Wednesdays: Let’s Play Webtoon Review

Image result for let's play webtoon

This Webtoon Wednesday is less of a review and more of me just talking about a Webtoon I started reading yesterday. I instantly fell in love with it, but I am only about 5 chapters in. Half of the characters in the picture above I haven’t even met in the Webtoon yet!

Sam is a game developer, and she was originally proud of her first puzzle-adventure game Ruminate. She spent hours and hours on it and was so happy when it had been given positive reviews on the indie game site she published it on. Then a Youtuber named Marshall gave her game a bad review online. He didn’t even read the instructions, got frustrated when he couldn’t get past the game, and ended the video trying to give “criticism” to the game’s developer. His fans then went and review-bombed Sam’s profile on the site until it was taken down for having such a high volume of negative reviews at one time. Then, Marshall moves in next door, and Sam has to figure out how she is going to deal with the neighbor that basically ruined her life.

I love how this comic represents people with social anxiety. Sam didn’t break down meeting Marshall, but then she had a panic/asthma attack with her friends when she was thinking about how to live next to him all the time.

This comic also talks about being a Youtuber or an indie game dev. Marshall had to be up all hours of the night, even when he was tired, just to make content for his viewers. Even when he was tired he would put on a happy face just to try to put out content on a regular basis. Sam put a lot of time and effort into her project, but one big Youtuber getting the wrong idea about her game, and her career was just about ruined in an instant. Review bombed and the original ratings might never return. I have never heard of this happening to someone who actually didn’t do something wrong in the gaming community (like a Youtuber calling out a developer for being a racist or bad to his employees or something), but I am sure that it has happened. I am glad that Mongie, the author, is bringing light to these important issues.

I am not going to give a rating as I am not very far in the episodes, but I will update you all on my final rating in a different post once I am completely caught up. Thanks for reading!

Video Game Tuesdays: Caveblazers Nintendo Switch Review

Image result for caveblazers

I bought this game on sale for around 11 bucks, and boy was it worth it! This game is so much fun.

The main mode in the game is running through randomly generated dungeons. There is gold hidden throughout the dungeon that can be used at shrines for various gifts, blessings around the map for free that give you powerups, and items dropped throughout the map. Every 2 (I think) rooms, you get a random boss. The point of the game is really to die, as you get to just restart the dungeon and you might get a powerup that makes it easier to kill the monster and collect more powerups.

I haven’t gotten past the fourth room past the first boss yet in the time that I have played it, but it isn’t boring. Every single round of the game is unique, as the enemies and world are randomly generated. You don’t even know what boss you are going to get at the end, which has been ruining my chances of winning so far! But I just keep trying over and over again, hoping that the next round will somehow be better.

Then, there are different game modes. One of my favorites seems to be just wave after wave of enemies, with breaks every “wave” (like 5 mini-waves) so you can choose which items to use next. This is actually really good, as it gives me the chance to try out new weapons and powerups without potentially jeopardizing my actual dungeon run. It has also introduced me to quite a few new enemies that I had never met before, and I now know how to fight them in case I come across them in the deeper levels of the dungeons.

Then there are the daily runs? I’m not quite sure how those work yet, they seem just like the regular dungeon runs, except maybe with more enemies, and you get nothing out of it? Again, this game has a lot packed into it, so I haven’t even gotten the chance to try this mode out much!

Image result for caveblazers

On top of all this, there are perks that you can choose before you enter the main dungeon to change your playstyle. For example, if you love magic, there’s a perk that starts you off with a wand and no sword. You want to be a Grim Reaper? There’s a perk that starts you off like that. You can still collect items as normal, but this is a way to customize the playthrough to your own personal style. And then you can even change the look of the character with clothes that you win by leveling up in the dungeons.

There’s even a story! I haven’t unlocked much of it because I suck at the game, but I am seeing random NPCs come into my section of the dungeons and unlock different things for me. I can’t wait to see if more come and cooler things come the deeper I get into the mines.

Overall, for the cheap price, this was an amazing indie game. I would totally recommend it the next time it goes on sale over some of the 60 dollar 1st party Switch games (*cough* Dark Souls Sucks *cough*).

Video Game Tuesdays: Lara Croft Guardian of Light (Xbox 360 Edition)

Play Lara Croft and The Guardian of Light on SHIELD ...

So, I got this game for free when it was on Games with Gold earlier this month. I actually already have on my Itunes account, probably bought it for the Ipad Mini I used to have, but I had never played it until now. I didn’t know what to expect, as I haven’t really played many Tomb Raider games. I’d only played an hour or two of the 2013 Xbox version. This game was so much different than that one in the end, so it didn’t even really matter. You can come into this game without any real experience with Tomb Raider games, and be perfectly fine.

So I was playing this in multiplayer mode. In multiplayer, one person plays as Lara while the other plays as Totec, an ancient Mayan warrior. Lara has a grappling hook that she can use to swing across gaps or climb up a wall. If she has a rope going to another area and she can’t swing over there, Totec can walk on the rope to the other side. Totec has spears that can be embedded in walls. He can’t actually walk on his spears though, as he is too heavy, so Lara must jump on the makeshift “stairs” to get to a higher area. Then they each have weapons, and there are upgrade skills that can be applied to each character. Either way, it is a pretty clean system for a multiplayer puzzle game.

Buy Lara Croft And The Guardian Of Light Tomb Raider PC ...When I got started, I thought that the puzzles were laughably easy. Then we got to this fire thing, and I thought “Oh, things might not be so simple.” We had a few fights with monsters here and there and got through around 2 challenge rooms in a few minutes without being too stumped.  Then, we got to the actual difficult part of the game. Walls were moving and trying to push you off like the coin machine at an arcade, enemies were popping up out of nowhere and actually doing damage, and there were no more super-linear corridors. You could explore to find and unlock powerups for your character, you weren’t locked in going directly from one place to the next. You even had choices of where you would explore, which was pretty neat. If I had played this on mobile, I probably would have thought it was the best game ever or something. Rarely do they have games on mobile with this much detail, I am happily surprised! Playing on the Xbox that has so many different games on it probably brings down the excitement level a bit, but if I had to choose between Flappy Bird and this on mobile, I would play this in a heartbeat.

I haven’t completed this game yet, but I am hoping to soon. I must be about an hour in, and there are only about 6-8 hours of gameplay. This seems rather short, but since it is multiplayer, I could imagine this being perfect for siblings to sit down and play. It is entertaining for when you are playing it, but you can put it down and come back to it later without completely forgetting what you are doing. Or you can have an ultimate game weekend or something and beat the game all in one go. Tons of fun to be had here! I can’t wait to see how much more difficult the puzzles get as I progress through the game.

I would recommend this game to anyone looking for a fun and easy-to-learn puzzle game for the 360, PS3, smartphone, or computer!

Video Game Review Tuesdays: The Outfit

The Outfit Screenshots for Xbox 360 - MobyGames

I’m going to start reviewing video games! This might seem out of the blue, but I have been playing games a lot lately as a great stress-reliever. And thanks to my friends in the Xbox 360 Hub Discord server, my Xbox has stopped collecting dust. I play on it all the time, comment below if you want a link to the Discord, it is full of a bunch of great people.

Anyways, back to my review of this game. This game was on sale last week for about 2 dollars and change (It now costs 20 dollars please don’t waste your money), and so some people at the server decided to buy it and play around one night. Before I get into the game, let me get into the history of the game.

This game was released in 2006 by Relic Entertainment. This was the only third person shooter that the company has ever made, as they usually make strategy games like Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War or Company of Heroes. They also mostly make games for the PC, as this was the first of two console games that the company ever made. What was a real-time strategy game company doing making a third person shooter? The Xbox 360 was only a few months old when this game came out, and this game was released around the same time that the games Call of Duty 2, Far Cry Instincts Predator, and Battlefield 2 were released. It had some serious competition.

As I played through the first mission of the singleplayer campaign, I was immediately confused. This was before I knew who made this game. This game is about Americans fighting Nazi’s, and so you have to fight off the hordes of soldiers. But it’s not like you are on a team with random NPCs, you control everything. You have 4 soldiers behind you, if they die, you have to “call in” more soldiers to be airdropped from the sky. If you need a tank, call it in, it will be airdropped from the sky. Need a bridge? Call it in, it will be airdropped from the sky. Need a turret? No problem, it will be airdropped from the sky. Each item costs points, and you get those points by killing the enemies and doing little side missions to “capture” points.

This is a weird mechanic, as I’m pretty sure you can’t just drop a tank from one of the planes they were flying back in the 1940s, but I digress. My pet peeve was that it takes you out of the combat. You are trying to fight off Nazis, then you notice that your men are depleted, and you have to duck behind a rock and wait for them to respawn. If you need a tank to get to another point on the map, you have to call it in and wait for it to spawn. In these seconds, your men can die. And the game refuses to let you enter a tank if you don’t have a full team of 4 men? This made getting through certain portions of the mission a drag as you had to wait for stuff to spawn and hope your men didn’t die before you got the chance to place a turret or drop in a tank. Not to mention that to just call in anything you had to press y, go around the circular menu until you found what you wanted, positioned it perfectly, and then called it in. That’s too much to do when you are being fired on and are using a controller. And this was just the first mission!

I also replayed this first mission with my friend in the Discord server in Co-Op mode. This didn’t make things better, as now we were trying to both drop in tanks and fight off the Nazis. Also, did you know that if you drop the tank on someone it can kill them? I accidentally killed his teammates as I was trying to drop the tank in, even though we were on the same team, so we had to stop and wait for them to be airdropped in before we could even continue with the mission. The second mission was even WORSE, with a phantom “Nazi train” that would just go down the tracks at a random time in the mission, and you had to get your tank or car out of the way so you wouldn’t get crushed and die and have to respawn. Then when we decided to switch games, we found that there was no way to save Co-op mode, so we would have had to totally restart from the beginning of the game if we ever wanted to play Co-op again.

Speaking of moving the tank or car out of the way, the vehicle physics in this game are abysmal. You can drive your tank up the side of the mountain at top speed accidentally,  but then it gets stuck and you can’t get down. The movement is some mixture of “wherever you face is the direction you go in, but you can also move forward and backward.” And then they have a gun at the top that can go in a 360 so you can shoot the tanks of the bad guys, and you have to control that too. The vehicles are all clunky, the Nazi’s have better ones than what you use your points on so you end up just trying to steal those.  The driving is a very important part of this game, so for it to be so bad ruins the entire thing.

Then I played multiplayer with 3 other people, and that was what really made the game even tolerable. The game is bad, which makes the multiplayer hilarious, so we had fun for it being such a cheap game. No one really cares about building turrets or calling in air attacks in the multiplayer, so we would just run around, trying to drive our tanks, and trying to kill each other. It was great fun!

Overall, this game tries to be a cross between an FPS game and a strategy game, and it doesn’t do a very good job of being either. You can’t really have a game like this on a console where you have limited controls. If you could pause the game and place what you needed to place that would be fine, but then it wouldn’t really be a shooter game with any sort of compelling action. If you took out the strategy, it would be ok, but it wouldn’t be fun because of the poor controls. It’s just a bad game, but for 2 dollars and change, I had a lot of fun with my friends laughing at how bad it was.

• Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award
• Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself

Since I was tagged twice, I will give you 14 things about myself.

1) I am an 18-year-old African-American girl.

2) I am a freshman in college studying Global Business!

3) I was homeschooled until high school. Then I switched to public school, which wasn’t that bad.

4) I’m a fairly good test taker and got a 1500/1600 on my SAT on my second try. Didn’t really affect where I went to college, as my school’s Honors program barely required over a

5) I love Kpop and have seen Day6, Astro, VAV, and DPR in concert. I am going to see ACE in NYC in December. My favorite concert was VAV because I got a free autographed album and got to have a fan sign with the members, and I got called on stage! My least favorite was DPR, the venue was awful and someone shoved their way into my place on the balcony at the start of the concert so I just gave up and watched the concert on the little TV’s on the couch.

6) I read ebooks really quickly, but I enjoy reading physical copies more. I can also be a little more judgemental with physical copies though, as I find myself remembering the small details that I didn’t like in the story more.

7) The game in my Steam library with the most hours is Stardew Valley, at 81 hours. I got about 20-30 of those hours in a week or two in the summer of  2016. I had nothing to do, and I fell in love with the game so I just played it nonstop. It almost made me sick, I was getting up, playing the game, eating, playing, and sleeping. I was dreaming about the game! But after I stretched to a more healthy amount of play, I enjoyed it more.

8) I think that the game I have played the most in all my life was the virtual world Build A Bear Ville or Bearville for short. I played that game from the time it came out in 2007 until around 2011, but then I stopped playing for a bit and tried out other games. I tried out SecretBuilders, Club Penguin, Pixie Hollow, and Webkinz, but I just kept coming back to Bearville. I loved it so much! Then it shut down, and I wish I had played it more when I had the chance.

9) I have both food and environmental allergies. The foods I am most allergic too are mostly types of nuts, such as peanuts and walnuts. I handle my allergies fairly well, but more often than not I have some sort of sinus issue going on.

10) One of my new dreams is to be invited to be on a panel at someplace like BookExpo. I would love to be able to tell others about how I got started reviewing books, and encourage other kids to do what I did. But I think I need to have more followers before I will get invited to anything like that XD

11) I want to support as many African American and other minority authors as possible. Sometimes I see that they are pushed to the site in the publishing world, so I hope to be able to connect with them and support them on their journies.

12) I love watching documentaries or opinionated BookTube videos as I procrastinate on something.

13) There are three things that I remember staying up late at night to do when I was a kid, or waking up early in the morning to sneak in an hour or two. 1) Read Harry Potter. 2) Play Club Penguin for DS Lite. 3) Play Toy Story 3 for DS Lite. These seem so random and I don’t know why my 10-year-old mind chose those things, but I did.

14) I struggle with high fantasy novels, but I always want to read that genre of books and get swept up into a new world. I just can’t keep track of everything.

15) My real name isn’t Briennai, but Alex. I created Briennai because I used it in video games and because I was only 16 and didn’t really want people looking for me. Now I want to be able to use this blog for job interviews and the like so I might go by my real name more.

Fortress of Shadows ARC Review

Fortress of Shadows (Stonehaven League, #2)Devon has been spending a lot of time in Relic Online, and she found a way to limit in-game pain so that she doesn’t have to be as careful as before. She has created a home with her little jungle village, and the villagers basically work for her. She hadn’t ever seen any other players, but then she saw some of her friends from a previous game she had been invested in. Hailey is the girl who streamed their last battle of the game even though she promised not to, and Chen was one of the youngest members of the group who was still restricted by homework and school times.

At first, Devon is worried about inviting them to her spot. She doesn’t want other players finding out. Then, they realize that they will need each other to complete some quests. They get even closer when strange things start happening, such as the village’s food supply being restricted and demons attacking. This game definitely hasn’t had all the kinks worked out yet, and more errors are to come.

I have loved this series so far! Even though this book was a little slower than the first, it still moved along at an engaging pace most of the time.

My favorite part of this book was definitely seeing Devon’s old friends being involved in the story. Both of them have their own unique backstories, and one really surprised me. I wanted Devon to finally have real people to spend time with and not just have to spend her time in this world with the NPCs in her village. I also thought that it was important to see how the other characters started the game, and

I think that while the characters were trying to figure out what was going on in the village that I lost focus. I struggled through those 100-200 e-pages, even though the storyline was fairly interesting. I can’t exactly pinpoint what was making me struggle like this, but once I got through that middle portion I was really excited.

Some of this story was also told from the POV of Devon’s boss. Even though they aren’t usually connected, Devon still has to catch up with him to let him know how the game is working. There were a lot of spoilers in this part, so I can’t say too much, but just know that you will learn a lot of things from his storyline.

I have to say that the character development was pretty intense. Devon had ended her relationship with her friends on the other game on a very bad note, as Hailey was caught streaming and then they failed to defeat the boss. She has to get over the issues that she still may have with them, and work together to solve a common problem. The other characters start to realize their own errors as they grow together in Devon’s village.

I would recommend this book to fans of adventure novels, and fans of LitRPG novels. If you are looking for an adventure novel with very little romance, this is definitely for you. There weren’t even any hints of romance in the series until a little bit in this novel, but it still wasn’t the main focus. Definitely very refreshing.

I received an advance copy of this book and this is my voluntary review.

Warcross Review

Warcross (Warcross, #1)

Emika Chen is a teenage bounty hunter who uses her hacking skills to track criminals who are wanted for illegally betting on Warcross. Warcross is a game that allows people to use the Neurolink to escape reality and play a game. After losing her bounty for $5000 dollars, she is unable to pay her rent and knows she will be evicted. Nevertheless, she watches the opening ceremony game. When she sees an in-game item worth $15,000, she knows that she needs to steal it. Using her hacked game, she is able to grab it, but doing it causes her to glitch into the dome. Immediately, she is kicked from the game, and she loses the item. Then, she gets a call from Hideo Tanaka, her idol and the creator of the game. He wants her to be his spy and his wild card in the tournament and offers her a hefty sum of money to do so and figure out who might be trying to sabotage him. She agrees to do so, but she doesn’t quite know what she is getting herself into.

I had 3 free periods today in school because 3 of my teachers were absent. This is about 2.5-3 hours of time just sitting in the class. I finished the sub work and a bit of extra homework, but I also finished the book during that time. This means that I finished this entire novel in a little under or over 2 hours. I just could not put this novel down.

I enjoyed how the beginning of the story showed how hopeless life can feel sometimes. Emika is doing her best, but everything seems to work against her. However, instead of simply accepting her fate and escaping reality with the game, she decides to keep going and try to do something to change her story. This perseverance continues throughout the story as she doesn’t let anyone or anything get in her way.

The storyline and inner workings of the game were super fun to read for me. I enjoyed the idea that the tournament would include “wild cards” and everyone would play against each other for fun, almost like a Super Bowl but rather randomized.

The only issue I had with this book was the romance. I felt that it was unnecessary in some ways and took me out of the story for a bit. However, it did work and it did shift my focus from the real mysteries like it did to the main character.

I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a fast-paced YA action-adventure thriller with a creative and smart female main character.

Animal Crossing Pocket Camp Review

Screenshot_20171121-213119.png

Alright, so I have been spending a lot of time playing Animal Crossing Pocket Camp. I have every single Animal Crossing Game except for the N64 version and the Amiibo Festiva (Which I do not consider to be a real game). Therefore, I was really looking forward to an animal crossing mobile game. Although the reactions are mixed, here are some of my opinions on it.

On Animal crossing pocket camp, you are in charge of a campsite, and your job is basically to recruit other animals to come and live in your campsite. To do this, you must fulfill requests for them, and you must build specific furniture for them.

Alright, so many people are annoyed with the time that you have to wait to harvest certain things or build certain furniture. However, this is perfect for me. I want a game that I don’t have to sit and waste time playing because I have a lot of other things to do, like reading books or doing homework. This game allows me to wake up in the morning, harvest some things, set some furniture to craft, and then I go to school. By the time I come back, most of my stuff is done, and then I can invite some more villagers to my town.

The only thing that irritates me is that there is not a WHOLE lot to do. The villagers have cute little cutscenes from time to time, but more often than not you just get a short conversation. I bought the KK Slider chair thinking that I would be able to customize my music, but he usually just plays one guitar song (or two). Then, the last thing that irritated me was the fact that there was little to no interaction with other players. I was hoping that they would at least have a chat box where you could make a friend group and talk to them while you were playing, rather like Clash of Clans. At best, I hoped that the people would be able to participate in island minigames like Animal Crossing New Leaf. Nevertheless, there is almost no interaction with friends, besides seeing their islands.

Overall, I hope more stuff is added in updates, but the game is a beautiful time waster, and I find myself playing it almost every day.

Overall Rating: 3.5/5
