Extremley good and fun, can get repetetive.veshnov | July 16, 2014 | Review of Don't Starve
I like this game. A lot. It's comprehensive and fun. A great survival story. Great graphical design. Two problems I have with it. It can get very repetitive. When you play a game of don't starve, you will die. A lot. It's a hard game. But when you die, you have to start a new game, so you always have to play through the first part again and again, which brings me into my next point. The world generation. It's a randomly generated world, but sometimes you have to go trekking for days just to find the most basic of materials. Annoying, and again, repetitive. Other than that, I have zero problems with this game. It's fun, lot's of things to craft, nothing seems overpowered and nothing seems under powered wit the costs. Good game.
Most casual in the series.veshnov | June 16, 2014 | Review of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim®
To justify my title, I would like to say that I love Skyrim, and it is worth all the monies you pay. Great game. The reason I called it casual is because it is. Let me explain. The Skills. In the previous elder scrolls games, there were a LOT of skills. In the first three, there were skills for everything you could do in the game . Alchemy, Long blade medium blade, short blade, Light armor, Medium armor, light armor. So many. In Skyrim, Way, Way less. A slight improvement was kill trees, which the previous games did not have. There are some interesting perks. But in the previous games, you would slowly get better at something each time you leveled it up, rather than suddenly being able to roll, for example. More damage for weapons,seeing more alchemy effects, things like that. But A very large subtraction in Skyrim was attributes. When you level up in Skyrim you can increase your Health, magicka, and stamina. In the previous games you could increase; Agility Endurance Strength Willpower Speed Intelligence Luck Personality And all of these attributes affected different skills. I.e Strength, Heavy Armor. Agility, Light armor. This added a whole new layer of depth to the leveling. And they took it out. At it's core, I think Skyrim is more of an action game that the others. Much more focused on everything flowing smoothly than anything else. And flow smoothly? It does. Switching weapons is quick, cast spells and bows are satisfying. The combat is great. But so much was better in the other games. This game had a very realistic environment, with mountains, and trees, and foxes, wolves, and all these real world animals. Morrowind, For example, had how many real worlds animals? Very few. The Rat may be the only one. There was a beatiful handcrafted island there, mushroom forests, swamps, giant volcanoes, all great. Skyrim just didn't have that. All in all, if you prefer Action-RPG's, this is worth your money and time. If you like core RPG'S you would be better off playing Morrowind.
Amazing game.veshnov | June 16, 2014 | Review of Fallout: New Vegas
I would first like to comment on meta critic's score of this game. 84. Lies. this is one of not only best RPG's I've ever played, but one of the best games I've ever played. The story feels free and presents enough choices for you to take a path that you would take, rather than being forced down one, like in Skyrim. (Skyrim is still a great game BTW)
The final battle is difficult, but rewarding, and the ways you can go through the game are overwhelming if they were are presented to you at once, but they are masterfully placed so they just present a choice, rather than another path to take in the game. What I mean by this, is that some games will present you with blatant choices, and at the beginning of the game you will say to yourself what kind of person your character is going to be.
Sometimes it is more prominent than others, i.e fable, but it happens.
With this game, you develop opinions of characters. Whether or not you want to kill them. And you make choices based on that. But you can play the game again, and still make choices based on you. Not your character, you. Truly immersive.
Gameplay is phenomenal. Many weapons, and different ways of playing. Both VATS and real time shooting work well. All around, great game.
For the price, worth it.veshnov | Jan. 30, 2014 | Review of Mirror's Edge (NA)
This game is beautiful. Not only in game play and graphics, but the controls are the best I've seen in some time. Comfortable and responsive, these controls are easily changeable without compromising the game play, and the reaction time feature is amazing. (Reaction time is generated by free running, and slows down the game on command) The levels are quite decent, having to think about each jump for leaping. The first time you play, the recommended route will be highlighted in red, but upon completion, "Hard" mode will be unlocked, allowing you to figure out your own route, as well as making the combat more difficult. Combat is in depth, but can be avoided if desired. Lighting and graphics are AMAZING.
ERMAGERDveshnov | Jan. 30, 2014 | Review of Borderlands 2 (NA)
This game is amazing. Quite Nearly perfect. The first borderlands was amazing, and having a game this good as the sequel, is more than I could wish for. The graphics, being hand drawn, look amazing and visually pleasing, and in all my hours of game play, I have not encountered one graphical glitch. The FPS mechanics are great, having dynamic enemies with critical hit spots, and skilled shooting, being able to shoot of limbs, trip them up, and much more. So much replay ability. All the classes are distinctly different, and the game will be different on a different class. Buy this game.
INCREDIBLEveshnov | Jan. 28, 2014 | Review of Dishonored
I loved this game. Everything about it. The Graphics were not realistic, nor were they intend to be, they were intended to be artistic. They succeeded. All the combinations of colors, and the animations, were absolutely beautiful. The stealth was wonderful, dynamic, many different stealthy paths to take. And not just stealth paths. On any level, there were innumerable side missions, runes in amazing places, dynamic steam punk machines, and many opportunities to use the AMAZING powers, which always have creative implementations, and great upgrades. If you like stealth games, buy this game.
