Ocean Planet Survival (Subnautica) Review

Subnautica, a game that is as merciless as it is unforgiving.  Dropped into an Ocean on a water covered planet, you must face the odds and survive the terrors that lurk in the deep.  After being ejected from the Aurora, your pod crashes into the ocean below.  You must find food and keep hydrated as you attempt to fix the pod.  The rest is up to you, the story is there, although it progresses very slowly.

You must find and scan parts from equipment strewn about in the Auroras crash site.  this will progress the story as you will need this equipment later on. There are also elements of base building which will keep you alive if built correctly.  Keep an eye on your power though. Electricity in equipment and your base will save your life!

I played this game back in very early access and am happy to say it gets a full release this month.  One of the true survivors of early access and also a must play game for anyone who wants a unique survival experience.

 

I highly recommend this game to anyone who likes survival games because this is a very unique keeper!

My Dishonored 2 review

It’s about time I review my favorite assassin game, Dishonored, specifically, the 2nd one.

I’m not going to delve too much into this review as it is yet another story driven single-player adventure.

Taking place after Dishonored (the first game) you play as either Emily Kaldwin or Corvo Attano during a coup to take control of Dunwall.  Now that you know Emily is actually Corvo’s daughter (you should know if you completed the 1st Dishonored) this story gets to happen. Emily and Corvo are both playable characters, though you can only pick one character for the story.  Depending on who you pick, the other character is frozen into a marble statue and the game begins. I’m not going to spoil anything after that, so Im going to list the pros and cons of this game.

Pros

  • Great combat mechanics!
  • Sword and gunplay!
  • Dark powers(Mark of the Outsider)!
  • Execution animations!
  • Semi-open world!
  • Skill tree for powers!
  • Craftable/lootable bone charms with buffs and handicaps!
  • Challenging

Cons

  • Minor performance issues(mostly fixed as of now).
  • Map layout is kinda weird/confusing.

All in all, I highly recommend this game even with glitches and minor performance issues, it’s still amazingly fun.

FPS with Amazing Story (Metro: Last Light Redux)

Metro:Last Light was and always will be my favorite single-player first person shooter.

With a gripping story and constant dangers of suffocating on the surface of a post apocalyptic world, although that is only bits and pieces of the game, it only makes it more challenging and fun. There is not really a main enemy in any of the Metro games om the series.

Chronological order: Metro: 2033, Metro: Last Light, Metro: Exodus (Release date slated 2018)

I”m not going to go into much detail because that would spoil the story, so pros and cons will be listed below

Pros

  • FPS with survival horror elements!
  • Unique gas mask mechanics!
  • Objectives are written down on a clip board!
  • Awesome weapons with upgrades!
  • Unique Mutants
  • Military Grade Ammo as currency

Cons

  • Some Micro-Management skills required
  • Guns are a little clunky in my opinion
  • Map layout confusing at times.

All in all, its a fun game.

BONUS FACT: based off the book series by Dmitry Glukhovsky

Rogue-Like Review of Streets Of Rogue

Rogue-Like Review of Streets Of Rogue

Ahhhhhh, Streets of Rogue, how I love you so!  A charming Rogue-Like that will keep you on the edge of your seat in all its randomly generated glory.

Streets of Rogue (being developed by Matt Dabrowski and published by tinyBuild)  is a randomly generated Grand Theft Auto-esque game with the freedom to be what you want.   Wanna play as Harambe (Gorilla)? How about a soldier? Scientist? Bartender?

Why not make your own custom character? as you play further you can pay chicken nuggets in exchange for traits and items to add to the trait/item pools.

Chicken nuggets are earned by completing floors, leveling up, or completing missions.

It is an amazing game that takes a great concept and puts it into a rogue-lite format.

 

With a 95% positive overall on steam, its well worth the score.

 

I highly recommend this game to anyone who likes time wasters or just appreciate good games as a whole.
