Not my cup of tea

MrBongoGT | April 1, 2014 | Review of Goat Simulator

Everyone was claiming that this game is amazing and extremely fun. Well it was fun but for a few minutes and then it got extremely boring. I went onto collecting everything and getting all the achievements but even that didn't last very long. Over all I played for about 90 minutes and flappy goat probably took up a 25-33% of that time.

If you are a gamer who can create their own fun or get amused by a goat destroying things and flying around with insane physics then this game is for you. It doesn't cost an arm and a leg but I doubt I'll play it again.

PS: everyone who said the game was amazing hasn't touched the game either after 2-3 hours of gameplay (at least the people that I've spoken to about it). Its still early but I doubt they will play it again for a while.

Fun for a bit

MrBongoGT | Aug. 18, 2013 | Review of Reus

You control 4 giants whom each have unique abilities tied in with their biome (or race if you want to call it that). There is ocean, swamp, forest, and desert. You are given goals to reach and to do so you use the giants to increase the food, wealth, or technology for that area. Once you get food in the region settlers will come in by themselves but you must give them wealth and/or technology to increase the villages potential, along with food to increase the population.

I loved the artwork and the concept of the game but for me it got a tad boring after a while (almost as every game does but this one didn't last long enough for me). I did mention goals are given but for me I wasn't too enthusiastic about them. I did wish there was a speed up for the giants to move, or even for the world to increase in speed...maybe there was that option but the tutorial didn't mention it and I didn't seem to find any sort of option. I believe this game would be great deals of fun but to a certain crowd so if there is a demo I suggest trying it before buying it.

MrBongoGT | Aug. 14, 2013 | Review of DuckTales: Remastered

If you grew up watching DuckTales then this is a must have. The game is like an interactive TV show with numerous cut scenes that could make up an entire episode. Almost everything about this game is great; the art work, voice actors, the music, and the cut scenes.

There were a few things I disliked about the game. First, the skip cut scene option...I did not even know of this until AFTER I beat the game. Yes I could be blamed for that but I'm used to a pop up telling me what to press to skip. Even after watching the cut scenes multiple times I did not get tired of them.

Secondly is the pogo-jump not registering which is exactly what was wrong in the original. At first I thought it could of been my controller but found out others had the same problem. The original had this exact problem which only occurred on non solid platforms. Landing on the edge will stop the pogo jump in some cases and in many cases (for my at least) I would walk off the edge. There was also certain areas where you didn't even have to be on the edge, possibly a crack in the rock, but it would lead to the same situation of me walking off the ledge into lava.

Even with these two problems (with the first problem most likely my fault for not exploring the possibility) I enjoyed this game very much so. They captured the characters as I remembered them extremely well and even provided some laughs involving my favorite, Launchpad.

MrBongoGT | Aug. 14, 2013 | Review of DuckTales: Remastered

If you grew up watching DuckTales then this is a must have. The cut scenes turn this platformer into a sort of interactive TV show. This is one of the few games in which I enjoy watching the cut scenes, not only because you can not skip them.

The inability to skip cut scenes does become a nuisance after dying on a level and having to re-watch them and some are quite lengthy.

A second problem I have with the game is that the pogo-jump fails to jump when on a corner or on a solid. This leads to accidental deaths, and tied in with the inability to skip cut scenes, well I've re-watched a few and you can only re-watch something so many times back to back before you get bored.

With the 2 problems I still love the game and would buy it again.
