Firewatch: A fantastic trip to the Forest

   firewatchwp

Camposanto made an awesome game that has a good story and well developed characters.

      The setting is in the Wyoming Wilderness on 1989. You play as Henry, who has a sad background story before he took a job on a lookout tower. The only friend he has is his superior named Delilah and the only way he talks to her is with a handheld radio.

      If you think that this is going to be a boring trip to the forest you’re wrong. The Wyoming Wilderness hold a strange mystery that’s going to keep you curious until the end.

      The game has beautiful graphics and a great map and compass to guide you through the adventure. The soundtrack, made by Chris Remo is also really good.

      No wonder the game was awarded as one of the Best Games of 2016.  The game is available to download for the PlayStation 4 in the PlayStation Store.

New Look and the Tomorrow Children

Hello again:

I decided to change the look of the blog and I want your opinion. Please, feel free to tell if you like it or not.

Meanwhile, I’ll leave you with another review. Enjoy!

The Tomorrow Children: Sweat it for Motherland

 

 

 

(Pic Collage from personal photos, the rest are from the PlayStation store)

Q-games is the maker of this online multiplayer for the PlayStation 4. Playing alone like me? Don’t worry, you can play it too.

In this post-apocalyptic game, you’re a clone child that has to help build down towns for 500 “Matryoshka People”. You have to provide them food, wood, coal, crystal, metal, energy and shelter. How? By traveling to different islands to collect them. You also have to collect the people too.

At the beginning it can be hard. This game doesn’t stop when you stop playing. So, maybe things are not going to be the same way you left them. That could be good or extremely frustrating.

The islands are cool and well-constructed, but sometimes you can get bored of traveling those places over and over. Another thing that can frustrate you is the amount of monsters that can destroy everything you have done.

Overall, the concept is interesting, cool and sometimes addictive.

The game can be downloaded for free at the PlayStation Store.

 

 

Oxenfree: Close encounters of the Radio kind?

Left pic from PlayStation Store. Right pics: Personal Files

 

     Night School Studio made a very interesting game with a good plot, fun characters and beautiful settings.

      The story is about a group of teenagers that goes to Edward Island to have a beach party. (Photo #3 from left to right: Jonas, Ren, Nona, Alex and Clarissa) But the party gets weird when they decide to check an urban legend. The urban legend has to do with listening weird things on different radio frequencies. Your goal is to investigate the island and get out of there alive. 

      The main character is Alex and when she speaks, they give you a choice of what to say. The answers you give can alter the game plot and you have to answer quickly. You have to use the Δ,Ο or □ buttons to answer.

       The game gets more interesting as you unravel the mysteries of the island.

        As I said before, the concept is good, the graphics are beautiful and leaves you with the desire to play more.

   Oxenfree is available for download to your PS4 on the PlayStation Store.

 

The Park: The shortest spooky game

 

       The concept of this game is based on a cursed twisted version of Hansel and Gretel.

    A mother is looking for her son in a park that has a horrifying secret that you have of read clues to find out what happened.

        It became spookier when you get to the house of horrors. The graphics got more violent and disturbing. Sadly, it was short and a final that I’m not telling because it could be a spoiler.

        I was kind of disappointed because it was a game with a lot of potential.

Abzû: Beautiful and Stunning

ABZÛ_20161001113320

 

 

              After a long stressful day, you want to relax. Some people think that going to the beach is      relaxing. Others like to snorkeling.

              But you don’t have vacation days or don’t know how to swim.

              Don’t worry because Giant Squid and 505 Games created this awesome game for the PS4. For your consideration, I introduce you to Abzû.

               The concept of the games looks like Flow, Flower, Journey and the PS4 version of Koi. Your character goes deep into the ocean and swim with fishes of different shapes and sizes. Imagine yourself swimming with killer whales, sharks and giant squids. At the same time, you’re saving the ocean and restoring its beauty.

               The graphics are stunning and the concept is interesting. The control is sometimes annoying, but the game is really good. I can’t imagine this on Virtual Reality. It will be awesome. Why they didn’t make this game for the PS Vita?

                The game is available to download on the PS Store for the PS4. And the photos you’re watching are from my picture gallery of the game.

Severed: One of the best games of April

This month, Drinkbox Studios released a very good game.

This is a rare RPG in which your character with no name realizes that she doesn’t have an arm and her family is gone. To save them, and maybe, get her arm back, she has to travel through a colorful world full of surprises and monsters.

The battle method is slashing your enemy. But if you think that is like Fruit Ninja, you’re wrong. Trust me, I tired. The enemy can come alone or they bring a few friends.

You also have to find clues and items to keep playing.

The only thing I don’t like about it is the fact that there are not many fruits that help her health.

It’s a great game and keeps you guessing.

Highly recommended. You can get this game for the Vita on the PS Store.

Sparkle, Spooks and Revolution

 Hello:

Sorry for the delay. Too many medical appointments. But I’m back.

sparkle-unleashed-box-art-01-ps4-ps3-psvita-us-2jun15            Keeps Getting Better

This new version of the franchise has the same goal as the previous two. The world is full of darkness and we have     to bring light back by eliminating orbs.

But 10 Tons didn’t made it a boring game. There are some very interesting changes.

1. You can change your power ups depending of your needs. Go to menu, press the middle button and select the ones you need.

2. It’s longer than the previous ones, no game over and you can save everywhere.

3. There are some time controlled levels. You need to survive mostly 120 seconds to win.

4. There’s help for people who doesn’t have a sniper shot (push the triangle button) and the color blind. (at the main page go to options and press the colorblind assist)

5. They add two sets of orbs for making our game more challenging:

– The chained orbs: you have to break them in order to eliminate them. And they send lots of those.

–  I called this ones the lava orbs: to eliminate them you have to hit them three times with the same color. If you don’t remove them quick they can get in the hole and make you lose the level.

6. The deeper you go, the levels begin to be shorter, with more chained and/or lava orbs.

The game is really good and challenging. You’ll spend lots of time to complete it. A+

The game is available for PS4 and PS Vita on the PlayStation Shop.

Next subject: A request for I-tunes Movies

Dear I-tunes movies:

Would you be so kind to add in your collection the movie Spooks the Greater Good? USA didn’t bring it to the theaters, but there are some people that want to see it. Specially the ones that like three things: Spy movies, Kit Haringtion or Both. Below is the photo of the movie soundtrack. I’ll be asking for it everyday on your twitter account until you add it. It’s already in the UK I-tunes Movies, but we can’t buy it there. I’ll appreciate it very much.
