27th of March, 2018- Dead Rising 3 Review

*Image gotten from wikipedia

Hello, and today I am going to do a review on Dead Rising three. Keep in mind this is a Rated M game, so anybody who is not legally over the age of seventeen (In the US at least, I do not have a clue for other countries age restrictions) shouldn’t play this. I do have to say, this game has a special place in my heart, as this was my first rated M game that I purchased as a seventeen year old, around two weeks ago. Ah, the joys of being 17. I can now waltz right into rated R movies (Purchasing a ticket of course), and N-17 movies. I can also get M games. I did gloss over I turned 17 a while back, so now I almost have free reign. I just have to wait a year then here I come Ao. Not that I would actually play an Ao game. I am getting off topic so here I go.

Dead Rising three is a Survival shooter game where you play as Nick Ramos, a young mechanic who is a survivor to the zombie apocalypse. Unlike previous games in the series (Or so I am told) you have a lax time limit to do different missions in the story. You can decide to do classic difficulty from the get go in nightmare mode, so if you have nerves of steel you can be a maniac if this is your first dead rising game. In this game the ultimate goal is to escape los Peridos in this hack and slash title. Before I even go to different mechanics and pros and cons, I do have to say with what I have experienced so far, I would give this game a 9.5 out of 10. I have experienced little to no problems on my part. There sadly is no major glitches (using sadly loosely), and this is an extremely well made game. There is no BS mechanics I have presently found. If I found a problem it was quickly resolved with this game, as it was me being an idiot. Now on to individualities.

Soundtrack- Honestly I can’t say much about the soundtrack. I was too immersed in gameplay to even notice it. Something similar to the sound track, the voice actors. I found the voice actors perfect for this game. In all honesty, if someone has an annoying voice it can ruin something easily. Even monotone voice is better than high pitched or annoying for me, and I hate monotone voices. I won’t really rate the soundtrack because it doesn’t matter, I get too caught up in the game to care about the sounds, with the exceptions of cutscenes.

Gameplay (10/10)- To me, this game has solid gameplay. I would even say it is way too solid, as I can ignore my surroundings with ho fun it is. You can drive around, craft weapons, hack and slash, run over masses of zombies, ignore the story or play the game to its fullest. There is something for everybody out there in this game (except for anyone under the age of 17)

Story (9 out of 10)- I actually really liked the plot on this game. At one point I went say what. Mostly because I have some background knowledge of the Dead Rising series. I liked how the different bosses have stories. I was skeptical with some on the contrary. Honestly there should of been a secret ending for beating all of the seven sin bosses. That really is my only qualm, how all you get was a shiny weapon and/or vehicle. Shame on me for being slightly biased, but the plot other than that is amazing. I should just change that to a decimal, but it would be a hassle to do extremely complex math.

In all honesty, for my first dead rising game that I played and didn’t watch someone else play, I really liked this game. I liked the nod off to Frank from the first game by all the statues. Like before, I give this game a 9.5 out of 10. That is all for now-


April 26th 2017- Spooky’s House of Jump Scares Review

(Warning, this game contains graphic and disturbing images, flashing lights, and sudden jump scares. It is not recommended to play if you have a weak heart, epilepsy, have been heavily sheltered as a kid, or are under the age of 13. I am not telling you to play this, so don’t get mad at me if anything happens. It is an amazing game nevertheless. There, now I can’t get sued.)

This game is recommended for beginners in the horror genre, and all types of gamer’s. Veterans might have difficulty because it is an unusual horror game; it’s different than most of that genre.

 I’m reviewing the free, original version, not the HD remake, so don’t question why some things are out dated. (On a side note this game wasn’t even released ten years ago and it got a remake, and I find that funny, and I’m not making a backhanded comment there.)

Today I’m reviewing a cuteysy, demonic, horror game called Spooky’s House of Jump Scares. Many people are probably wondering why today I’m reviewing a horror game in the middle of Spring (or Fall if you live in the southern hemisphere), when it’s not even remotely close to Halloween, and that is because this a game that needs more love. Spooky’s House of Jump Scares is a horror game on P.C. that is about you exploring a mansion that is haunted by the ghost of a kid named Spooky. You traverse the halls, trying to figure out what happened while trying to not die. It is extremely cute game, but some of the images are really gorey. You should ask your doctor first if you can play this if you have epilepsy or a weak heart. I overall give this game an 8.46 out of 10. Now lets see why.

Sound (80 out of 100) – The quality of the sound and voice acting are pretty solid. It is amazing, but some of it is overly creepy. It doesn’t really have music, but does have audio per say, so it gets minus 20 points.

Gameplay (90 out of 100) – The gameplay is also pretty solid, but can be annoying at times. You can only save every 100 rooms, so if you mess up, too bad so sad. It can be frustrating, but it is also simplistic. It’s good for what it is.

Story (75 out of 100) – The story is very cryptic, and there is a different story for everything, and the ending is good, but could improve. The story can be confusing, and you may need to play the game once or twice to get it. It’s bittersweet and good once you understand it all.

Scare factor (100 out of 100) – This is a game that starts out entirely cute, and it leads you on. You feel as safe as can be, but then it hits you with an eighteen wheeler, and you will be scared out of your mind. Not saying why or how though; that would spoil all the fun.

Atmosphere (95 out of 100) – The general atmosphere changes immensely as the game progresses, and each atmosphere is unique and extremely fitting for each section. Some people may not like the amount of atmospheres, and how they transition.

Graphics (67 out of 100) – This game has good graphics for what it is, but it’s not the greatest.

It is available on Steam for free, but the D.L.C isn’t. I would recommend to try it yourself for a bit before buying anything.
