Niche – a genetics survival game I put in hours into this game before it came out as a Backer, makes you think a lot, tons of strategy.
Despicable Me: Minion Rush This is easily one of the most unique and colorful run games out there.
Temple Run Not as fun as the 2nd one but defintly nostalgic.
Microsoft Minesweeper This was a terribly hard game, not just this version but every version to exist.
Grand Theft Auto V Just another week left and I can finally play this game.
Microsoft Solitaire Collection One of the most addicting Windows Phone games that I have experienced so far.
Unturned This is a wonderful free game made by a 16 year old kid.
Treasures of Montezuma Blitz There's some glitch though, instead of playing on consectutive days like most games, you get more points and stuff the longer you are away.
Treasures of Montezuma Blitz Really fun game when I first started.
Pokemon Aquamarine Working on some Screenshots now.

theHunter: Call of the Wild
01-17-22 09:30 PM
Hunting has never been so fun
Over the course of just a couple of days, thehunter: Call of the Wild has become one of my most favorite PS4 games of all time. For starters, I’m a huge fan of all sorts of hunting games. When I was younger, I absolutely loved all of the Cabela hunting games and I put in way too much time into the first two Reel Fishing games, way more than I should have. When I got into new consoles like the PS4 and Switch, I tried getting into these kinds of games on the newer consoles but it was an absolute wreck.

A couple years ago I bought Cabela's The Hunt: Championship Edition and it ended up being one of the worst games that I had ever played. Later on I started seeing Call of the Wild pop up in Gamestops all over the place so I had my eye on it for a while. Then at some point last month, it was on sale so I bought two copies, for myself and one for my roommate. It ended up being one of the three best gaming purchases I made on the PS4.


Call of the wild looks stunning. There are so many different reserves that you can play on and each one is massive. But that doesn’t mean that the developers skimmed on the detail because everything looks great. There’s lots of mountains and bodies of waters, and a plethora of trees, bushes, and grass, and they all have a ton of detail. There’s also a ton of detail when it comes to the animals and I’m not just talking about how they look. Their animation and movement looks really well done and sometimes it looks pretty realistic too.

SOUND: 8/10

There’s a lot of really good sound design across the game. I didn’t pay too much attention to the music, which is okay, but the game shines with the sounds of the wild. All of the animals sound good and realistic. You can hear different kinds of cries and roars and you can hear them stampeding. When you walk, there’s different kinds of sounds for when you’re crouching, running, and running across different terrain... Read the rest of this Review
Metroid Dread
11-29-21 10:02 PM
E.M.M.I. Are Scary
I always wanted to really try out a Metroid game. I’ve played some of the older games for a few minutes here and there, and I wanted to play Samus Returns, but I haven’t invested more than like 30 minutes into any Metroid game before. I’ve never been a big fan and I wasn’t really expecting to pick up Dread at all. It was only after I physically picked up the OLED Switch that I even started considering Dread because I thought it would look really cool.


Since I’ve never played any of the older games in the Metroid series, I don’t have any games to compare Dread to when it comes to graphics, but they do look amazing, even more so if you’re playing on the OLED Switch. Before I talk about the OLED version, let’s first start by talking about the basics of the graphics.

First off, the world design is really well done. The actual area that you’re playing on is really well made with a lot of detail and is very good looking, but the best part of the visuals is the background. Look past where you’re playing and you can see so much going on. There isn’t just a wall, you can see lots of life, movement, and detail in each background.

There’s also a ton of detail in many of the character designs. The EMMI look terrifying and their actual movement animation only makes them look more frightening. The designs of many of the other enemies are pretty spot on as well. Lastly, the actual in game and animated cutscenes look really good at times with lots of detail and clean movement.

Now let’s talk about the OLED enhancements. The bigger screen allows for what you see to stand out even more. The enemies look more menacing, the text is easier to read, and you get to see a lot more detail when playing handheld.

SOUND: 8/10

The sound of Metroid Dread is pretty good. The regular sounds are fantastic and is a good excuse for why the game is called Dread. Whenever an EMMI is c... Read the rest of this Review
Sonic Colors Ultimate

It's A Sonic Game
I don’t play Sonic games often, but I wanted to get my hands on Sonic Colors Ultimate for a number of reasons. For starters, the game as a whole looked pretty fun and I heard about all the issues going on with all the graphical glitches and bugs, so I wanted to test it out for myself. Plus, I was able to get the digital deluxe version of the game for under $27 so it was a no brainer for me to get it.


I personally didn’t experience any of the weird glitches that everyone else was reporting but that could be for a number of reasons. Just as the game was releasing, lots of people started pointing out that many of the glitches were from people who were using emulators and not playing on the actual Switch hardware. This means that there were far fewer glitches than were actually being talked about.

Secondly, there’s already been a patch released so it’s entirely possible that many of the big visual issues were already taken care of before I even started playing the game. Other than that little side note, the game does look really good here and there. Colors is in the name and the game is full of it.

Each world is full of vivid and at times and there’s a decent amount of detail in the course and environment. There was one area where I stopped running and noticed that there was a door to a building that was next to the course and it had a decent amount of detail. That was a lot of detail for something that you were going to dash past and only see for half a second.

However, with so much going on at once on screen and with so many colors and lights all over the place, it can get distracting at times and it can sometimes get a bit hard to look at. Every now and then there might be too much going on or the contrast in colors will be a bit hard to look at. But other than that, there’s some really good visuals.

SOUND: 9/10

Scarlet Nexus
11-17-21 09:03 PM
The OSF Wants You
When it comes new brand new video games, I usually know about all the hot new games that are coming out but it was a different story in the case of Scarlet Nexus. I had no idea that this game was coming out in the first place. The first time that I ever heard of it was at the end of June, a couple days after the game was first released. In fact, if I hadn’t gotten into Fire Emblem earlier that month, I still wouldn’t have even known about Scarlet Nexus and I would have never tried it out in the first place.

Don’t get me wrong, I really like the number of ways that you can customize your character, but it seems like it’s just way too confusing of a system. I ended up spending close to an hour messing around in the customization page because it was mostly a lot of trial and error and going back to previous pages to try something new.

When I first started playing Three Houses, I quickly fell in love with the game and I started to really like the voice cast. A couple weeks into playing the game, I started following like a dozen of the games main voice actors and it just so happens that many of my favorite voice actors from Three Houses were also in Scarlet Nexus. Because of that, the voice actors were constantly talking about the game and that ended up being how I found out about it.

If I’m not mistaken, nearly ten of the main Three Houses voice actors were also main in Scarlet Nexus such as Chris Hackney and Erica Mendez, and that was something that made me really excited. Even before I knew what the game was about or saw any trailers or reviews, I knew that I had to get it simply because of the voices. Then, near the end of July, GameStop had a big sale where the game dropped to $40 so I finally picked it up so that I could test it out and see if it was really as good as I was hoping it would be.

In the end, I was very happy with how the game turned out. I wasn’t too excited with the throwing stuff with your mi... Read the rest of this Review
Outer Worlds, The
11-16-21 03:03 PM
Play This Game If You Like PAIN
I always wanted to play The Outer Worlds. A couple months after it came out for PS4, I picked up a copy, but I ended up never playing it. Then, I was ready to pick up a copy for the Switch, but there were so many people who were saying that this version of the game was trash, so I held off on buying it. But then one day, there was a big sale at Target. The game was on sale for only $20 and it was part of a buy 2 get 1 free sale, so I finally picked it up but still, I never played it.

Then the expansion pass came out and that too went on sale for only $20 for the Switch version, and once I picked it up, I figured that it was finally time to play it. I was still very skeptical because of all the bad things that people were saying, but I knew that the game was still fun at least and I decided to play it. Did I regret it?


Don't get me wrong, the game looks amazing on the Switch and it runs pretty well too, but it's impossibly difficult to play because movement is absolutely horrible. For the first 30 or so minutes of my playthrough, I loved the graphics, but it all went downhill once I entered combat for the first time. The cutscenes were all really well made, the environment was beautiful, and both the animation and frame rate werw pretty good.

There was also a ton of detail that made everything come to life. If I could have left it at that, my grade for graphics would have probably been a 9 and I'm sure that's where it is on other consoles.

But movement was an absolute nightmare. Turning and camera movement felt so broken. There were no smooth movements, so I'd lightly turn but the camera would harshly move, pass where I was trying to look, and then suddenly stop. This made gameplay so hard and changing the sensitivity barely did anything to fix it. There were times where I'd be fighting one enemy and when I'm aiming my gun, it would be just to the right of them. So I'd turn a little bit but the ai... Read the rest of this Review

Stardew Valley
03-23-20 01:31 PM
Ultimate Guide to Fishing
Fishing is one of the 3 main ways to make money in Stardew Valley. But it's tough right? You need to use energy to fish and after you catch a fish you have to decide what to do with it. Do you sell it for money or use it to replenish your energy so you can fish more? Many of the fish aren't even worth that much to begin with, they'll give you a low amount of energy when you eat them or they'll give you a small sum of gold when you sell them.

But there are two fish that are OP that can be found in the mines, they are the Ghostfish and the Stonefish. The Ghostfish sells for very little but the amount of energy you get from eating 1 is 2-3 times higher than other fish. The Stonefish can't be eaten but can be sold for a ton.

There are three things that you need to make this work best but only 1 of them is mandatory.

1. Iridium Rod. This is one of the best rods in the game and it let's you attach things like bait and spinners. It only costs around 8,000g so it isn't too difficult to get and you'll be making that money back in no time at all.

2. Bait. You're going to want bait because it shortens the time it takes to hook something. You'll also need a rod that accepts bait. Bait is easy to get all you have to do is kill bugs in the mine.

3. Level 20 in the mines. This is the only thing that is mandatory. You need to make your way down to level 20 in the mines which is where the lake is located. Once you access it for the 1st time, you can fast travel there from the mine entrance.

Now you're ready to collect some gold.

After one full day of fishing, I grabbed 16 Ghostfish and 4 Stonefish. I didn't even have to worry about eating any of the fish because I was also grabbing Algae, which is better in the mines. In the mines, you can fish up White Algae which gives you 20 energy each, opposed to 13 from Green Algae.

Because I didn't have to worry about energy I sold all the Stonefish that... Read the rest of this Guide
Horizon: Zero Dawn - Complete Edition

Horizon Zero Dawn Guide to Hunting Machines
Lots of people love Horizon Zero Dawn. It's so much fun and has so many good reviews. But have you ever been worried by the sheer number of machines that are present in the game? It can get confusing and figuring out how to handle each one through trial and error can be a pain.

So I went ahead and listed all of the machines that have "open spawns" and discussed some of the best ways to deal with them.


Watchers I think are the first machine that you encounter in the game and they are one of two machines in the starting area. They are small and look kind of like velocirapters. I guess they kind of act like them too. What do they do? They watch. If one sees you, they alert the others and start attacking you.

It's very possible to avoid watchers all the time but if you want to fight them, they're easy to kill too. It's best to strike before they see you with your arrows. Most of the time, one powerful shot to their eye will be enough for a KO. If you miss your opportunity and they start attacking, you just gotta stand your ground and go hand to hand and they'll go down easily.


Striders are the other machine that spawn in the starting area and along with Watchers, they are the two most common machines that you will see playing this game. They look just like horses and 99% of the time they are peaceful. In addition to fighting them, you eventually get the power to tame them and once you do that, you can ride them. Goodbye legs.

If you want to fight them, It's best to do it quickly because once you hit one, the one you attacked along with all the others around it will most likely run away. Sometimes one will fight back though. The best way to kill these guys is with arrows, 3 or 4 should do the job. But, if you get to knock one down, you could just go up to it and go hand to hand to finish the job. Fighting Striders are the easiest way to get used to the controls and collect ear...

Pokemon Go

How to find them all
Most people who play Pokemon Go don't actually want to go out of their way to find Pokemon, I mean, who would want to walk a mile to find a Pidgey? Wouldn't it be so much easier if you not only knew what Pokemon were around you but also exactly where they are? There are in fact a couple ways to do this, some people already found out about these cool tricks, while others are still in the dark and stick to running around in circles.

First off, I'm going to discuss another game called Ingress, which is a similar game also developed by Niantic which has a lot more in common with Pokemon Go than just who they were developed by. Ingress is another AR MMORPG that was released about 4 years ago. In this game, the players uses a map that represents the surrounding area, just like Pokemon Go does, and one of the things labled on the map is called Exotic Matter, which is basically the thing that fuels everything in the game, however, it appears that the code Niantic uses has a direct link between the two games, and that areas with more XM in Ingress also have a high concentration of Pokemon in Go. So if you see a Pokemon that you need nearby, you could switch over to Ingress, go directly to the areas that have the most XM, and then switch back to Go, and Pokemon should start appearing where you are. Of course, there's a chance that it might not be the Pokemon that you were looking for, but hey, it's almost free XP, Stardust, and Candies at the expense of a Pokeball.

The next trick to some is viewed as cheating while to others makes the players more active and it's called Pokevision. It's a map that uses the code from Niantic to display real time locations of every Pokemon that's available. All you have to do is pick a location and the map will display all of the Pokemon that are around you and how long you have before they despawn. There could be a cluster of pidgeys right around you, or there could be a Pokemon that you need just a few bloc... Read the rest of this Guide
One Finger Death Punch

How To Not Die 101
One Finger Death Punch is a great game, but there's a lot going on all at once and if you can't keep up with the changes you probably won't be able to do well. Every single level will most likely be different than the last one you have played and if you don't know what you're getting into, adapting might be quite difficult so I'm going to talk about all the things that you are going to encounter, from modes and skills, to a couple of tips.

First off, you should know that the game has two different Game Modes which are the Arcade Story Mode and the Survival Mode. First let's go over the Arcade Mode and talk about some of the levels and such.

The Arcade Story Mode sees you going on a long journey through hundreds of battles and different battle types. There are three different difficulty levels which are Student, Master, and GrandMaster and in each one you play the same 200+ levels which get harder in each difficulty. Throughout this mode, you will encounter 14 different types of Round which are as follows.

The Mob Levels are the simplest levels that you can play through, but in most cases can also be the longest. Because they are so simple compared to other levels, Mob Levels usually get evened out by having you face many more enemies. In the first difficulty level of the arcade mode, the number of enemies you face in a Mob Level can vary from 50 to roughly 200 bases on how far into the game you are. Mob Levels are the only levels in which you can encounter and learn about new enemy types, which are usually determined by the color under them and all basic enemy types can appear in any Mob Level. The objective of Mob Levels are to defeat all enemies of that level without dying. You generally start off Mob Levels and most other levels with 10 lives and you lose one each time you are hit and if you have lost all lives, the game is over. Most enem...

Guide To Non-Zombification: Survival Style
This game has a huge map, a ton of challeneges, and an impossible crafting system so here I am to give a few tips, ideas, and some help to make sure that you can get through the game witbhout being eaten hundreds of times. Though this only counts for the PEI map.

When you first start off this game, it can be really tough and that's because of one thing, location. When you first spawn, your location is the single most important factor in whether you will survive or not and without the right kind of location you will find yourself dead within minutes. If you look around your spawn point and it doesn't look like you can get too far from there, then don't even try, just commit suicide and try for a better spawn. Even an experienced player like me has to do this, sometimes I go through a dozen or so different spawns before I even start moving.

The number one thing to look for when you are spawning are zombies. Contrary to what some might think, spawning right away near a zombie is actually a good thing opposed to spawning where there's nothing because it is a way to get a small boost of experience right from the start. Of course, you will only want to keep this spawn point if there's a good amount of zombies because if you spawn where there's maybe one or two of them, then it might just not be worth it and you should just start over.

When you play for the first time, it will be very hard to find things on the map, but once you have played for a while, you will be able to tell where things are in relation to ne another. For example, when I first spawn, I can tell which direction is the road, or a town, regardless of where I spawn, but for somebody who is new, you won't be able to know where any of that is so aside for seeing zombies, the next thing that you need to look for is a road. Most of the time you will spawn by the water, which is a good way to get used to your surroundings because sometimes you can see the campsite, or the bridg... Read the rest of this Guide
