All About Cetrie
This is just a continuation of part 2 to be honest but I want to carry on the points I was making.
this game is self-proclaimed as one of the hardest games ever made. I can only agree with the statement. I have never met a game that only punishes you for getting better; you are always fighting an uphill struggle with this game as it never eases on you. The learning curve of this game is not too bad but some fiddly controls and the lack of a pause option has gotten on my nerves a few times. The game does not have a great deal of explanation in the opening cut scene; it has some excellent visuals and a grand sounding story but I was left a bit confused about the whole goings on and not sure what any of it had to do with my character and what was going on.
Though I have done nothing but pick faults so far I would like to say I also love this game. The concept it delivers keeps you on your toes and makes sure you can?t relax. When you do rest at a camp fire the game then resets all the enemies you killed and re-spawns all hostiles. This is also an incentive to play areas again and again to make your character stronger; also exploring new areas little by little allows you to enjoy the games simple you haunting good sound track. The lack of NPC?s at the beginning of the game make you feel alone and distant from everything.
I have not played a lot of this game though what I have played so far I do love and I can only recommend it to people who will not get annoyed at replaying the same areas again and again. You need patience and have a love of games that involve grinding. I have found this game a challenge yet also fun in short bursts if you want to just kill things in an area and then rest at a campfire and then go kill the same circle of enemies and then save it. Though the game is probably not for new gamers I would recommend it to people who have a passion for insanely and stupidly difficult games or just people who want a challenge.
Mass Effect 3
This game was so hyped and so anticipated that it was always going to be hard to try and please every single person who was looking forward to this game. Though after the game had been released and people rushed through to find the end outcome it cause nothing but controversy. Never has a game created so much discussion and heated debates that have been widely discussed and ridiculed.
I am going to say that personally I enjoyed the ending to this game and don?t know why people moaned so much; though in my own personal opinion I enjoy a more artistic view on games. I just like to be allowed entry into someone else?s mind. Though Mass Effect 3 in general it was pretty underwhelming, it had some amazing set pieces and some cut scenes were mind blowing but the game in general did not deliver. I felt the story telling was a little weak and the game was relying more on combat to progress the story forward. I am a huge fan of this series of games and I loved the story telling and just felt the third one was not on par with the previous 2.
The combat was tweaked and sharpened for the latest outing and it made for a good game but I just did not have the same interactions with the character as I did in Mass Effect 2. Maybe the developers wanted you to feel this way due to the plot of the game.
Don?t get me wrong when the game goes hunting for an emotional response from the player it managed to grab me a few times and the game made me feel things that I did not expect but I feel they focused more on this that the overall narrative of the game.
Thanks for reading this (if anyone has).
I know it has been a long time since i wrote the first part of these updates; lets hope i can maybe update this more often.
I have just finished my NC qualification at Reid Kerr College for computer game development; this course basically shows you in some detail what steps are required in making a computer game. The main fear i had with this course is though that i was never very good at coding at school and when it did come to coding the lecturers were very helpful and talked you through what functions carry out what. The course in general is fantastic and i am grateful that i managed to obtain a space on the course as it is very popular and now moving onto my HNC i hope to be able to achieve more.
Enough of the boring stuff out of the way i want to talk about games. The games i have really have been drawn to lately are the games that i like to call my forte; this would be RPG games. I know many people are not interested and dont want to get involved in games that take 40 + hours to complete and for that i can understand peoples disregard of the genre. I love these games because you invest yourself into the game and draw out the emotions of the characters and follow a path that someone had laid out for you to follow. It is someone who has managed to open their mind up and let you in to their thoghts and feelings and it is something you wish to share with the world. It takes a certain kind of person to allow their mental images to be projected into other peoples minds.
The great RPG's of modern day are simply fantasic with the likes of Skyrim, Dark Souls and Mass Effect just to name a tiny fraction. These games all have their place in the world of gaming but all are not without flaws.
Skyrim is a visual masterpiece with a team of extremely talented people at the helm, these are people who really do care about their work and take pride in bringing you an adventure experience that will be remembered and changed with every playthrough of the game you wish to undertake. The different range of quests and abilities allows for you to have a totally different experience from your friends and then you can discuss what you brought to your own unique experience. The fact you can alter your own charcter to look the way you want allows you to tailor your story and then how much time you invest in your character allows you to envoke emotional rections from the outcomes of events in game.
The down side to this game is as much as it can appeal to new gamers the controls can be very annoying for a new gamer to grasp. I personally watched someone struggle in the opening set of this game when a dragon first appears and the player was lost from the word go. I know to a self proclaimed gamer a controller feels like an extension of yourself but to someone who had only really played Guitar Hero or Dance Central a controlled can feel alien. This means the Skyrims should have a more in depth tutorial section of the game, much like the type found in the Witcher 2.
As i have rambled on for a while i shall stop now and come back at another point to updates this further. Thanks for reading (if anyone reads this) and any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Hello once again,
I as like the vast majority of people on this website, would call themselfs a gamer. As a gamer i love to play games. To feel emersed in the virtual world you play in. to not realise you are just a person infron of a screen takling over a headset to people doing the same thing.
I am now 21 years young. i have a part time job that is not going to up my hours. I want a real job and this "CREDIT CRUNCH" is stopping people from hiring. But just now and for many years i have liked to relax with just playing a good old computer game and just leave the real world for a couple of hours a week.
My first game experience i remember was playing my original gameboy the game was Supermario. My 2 brothers had just got a SEGA MEGADRIVE. About a couple of months after christmas, the mega stopped getting used so i had to make sure it didnt get neglected. Since then i can stop with the computer games. I just find them relaxing (well not always some games are frustrating).
