Earth Defense Force

The storyline is simple. Insects attack Detroit and the Earth Defense Force must save the city from certain destruction. There isn’t much else and the Earth Defense Force will engage insects in fierce battles on multi levels to ensure human kind survives.

In the older version released the humor was entertaining, but in this new version it’s kind of bland and few gamers will find anything to laugh about. The story isn’t too serious and will be enjoyed as something to pass the time. The gameplay in the previous version was also much more enjoyable and the sequel fails to excite gamers beyond the norm. It’s an average based third person shooter with nothing spectacular. You won’t find it as good as many other third person shooters and after a while the game does get quiet boring. You will be tempted often to put down the controls and forget about finishing the game.

There aren’t any magnificent weapons in your arsenal either. You have the normal standard guns to shoot with and the battles although fierce fail to inspire you to do better. Make no mistake, there is plenty of action and you can die easily if you forget to be sensible. You are doing the same stuff over and over and this is what leads to boredom. The enemies remain the same. There’s not much variety and the simple gameplay will have you falling asleep.

There is an online function and many fans will prefer using this mode as its far more enjoyable playing with other humans. Even in this mode you still have to be extra careful as survival depends on you holding your own in a wild and lawless country. It’s so easy to die, especially if you lose concentration.

The sound is quite nice, though. In this department the developers have improved vastly compared to the first release. The price of the game isn’t too high, which is a relief. You can easily afford the game compared to others in this genre.

Although the game lacks depth and excitement it is generally fair to someone who enjoys third person shooters. You won’t be inspired to replay the game once you finished. Most gamers would prefer something more, but in Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon everything is pretty much average.


About Online Jigsaw Games

Technology has evolved this exciting indoor game by introducing online games. Online jigsaw games are especially helpful in helping children spend time on the internet constructively and to avoid visiting explicit websites or chat rooms where they may fall prey to child predators. Time and money that is spent on purchasing jigsaw games are saved by playing the same game online. There is also a prime advantage of being able to select the image and level that one chooses to play. This allows for progressive development in the difficulty level and helps a person to be able to monitor their overall development as opposed to purchasing a jigsaw puzzle and repeatedly solving it until one is able to buy another puzzle.

Another important advantage that comes with online jigsaw games is the ability of one player to interact with other players from all over the world. Players are able to share their experiences and offer each other advice on how to solve the puzzles. Players are able to challenge each other to solving puzzles thereby creating a positive social effect. This would not be the case if someone purchases a jigsaw and solves it at home by themselves.

Online jigsaw games have helped to prove the usefulness of the internet in helping children to nurture their talents and interests and to even improve on their social skills through communication with other online gamers all over the world. Some online jigsaw puzzles allow players to upload their own images and solve the puzzle. This gives the players an edge in preferences and breaks the overall monotony of the game. A player is also able to collect their solved images and share them on social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter.

There are online jigsaw competitions that provide a competitive avenue for players to showcase their skills in solving jigsaw puzzles and for some to improve on their memory abilities. Playing online jigsaw games is an interesting way to have fun while indoors. It can be a great family activity where parents are able to bond with their children in the comfort of their homes. Its affordability has also made it popular among many players who don’t have to part with any extra cost in order for them to have fun. It has become a favorite activity to pass time among adults who are stuck in the office all day to help them kep their minds active and rejuvenated.


Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus

The obvious thing to do would be to just focus on the Vita specific features of this latest packaging, but that’s pretty boring. I’ve never personally reviewed Ninja Gaiden, so I’m going to give this a solid review that will hopefully appeal to Vita owners who have (somehow) never actually played this game.

So let’s start with a bold statement: I think (the original) Ninja Gaiden deserves the title as one of the best action-adventure games to ever grace a console. It’s not perfect, and time has caused its flaws to be magnified, but the combat system is as tight as ever. Every sword fight is fast and intense, and every battle you participate in could be your last. You absolutely must master (at the very least) the basic techniques, since as you have probably heard, this game is notoriously difficult.

And it is difficult, especially by modern standards, but Ninja Gaiden’s difficulty is discussed much like Demon/Dark Souls’ difficulty: as an exercise in hyperbole. Like those games, Ninja Gaiden is significantly challenging, but with patience and experience the game can be bested. A quick tip: learn how to block and dodge. These combat techniques are non-negotiable.

The combat plays with precision and finesse, like it was stripped right out of a fighting game, but the platforming doesn’t follow suit. Sure, you can run along and flip off of walls like a true ninja, and it’s cool once you get the hang of it, but the movement is very sensitive, so oftentimes it’s easy to miss your mark. Luckily, that rarely leads to instant death, unlike the old school NES games (which ironically had arguably tighter platforming).

The story that unfolds is of Ryu Hayabusa from those very same NES games, whose ninja clan is mercilessly slaughtered by an evil spirit called Doku, who dresses in samurai armor and talks like Darth Vader (which is in fact awesome). Doku steals the Dark Dragon Blade, and murders Ryu with ease. And so his (and your own) tale of vengeance begins.

It’s all fairly cookie cutter stuff, only made slightly cooler by ninjas and swords. The voice acting falls flat and is fairly bad, and save one cool plot twist near the end, it’s all fluff. It is all forgivable though, as the story only exists to propel the action. This is a game that people fondly remember for its gameplay and difficulty, and hopefully not its story. That said, the plot is not the worse I have ever seen, by a longshot (and from what I have heard, it is way better than Ninja Gaiden III.)

Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus is a linear game. Sure, you can explore formerly visited areas and search out some secrets, but you are mostly moving from point A to point B. During your travels, you will cut down all manner of man and demon in a variety of locations: a ninja village, a blimp, a bar, and a military base, to name a few. The variety works well for the story; the game is pretty long, and the diversity of locations makes you feel like your taking on a real journey.

The dragon sword is not the only weapon you will cut through your opposition with, as you will come to earn many new weapons and skills. In fact, the amount of weapons is impressive, and they mostly play differently, rather than just looking different. For example, the nunchaku are fast and relentless, but a giant sword carries the momentum of a small car. There’s something for everyone here, but if you’re like me, you’ll fall in love with the dual swords and never look back.

Speaking of “something for everyone”, since the release of Ninja Gaiden Sigma on the PS3 in 2007, you can play as the female warrior from the story, Rachel. She plays like a tank in contrast to the nimble Ryu, wielding a gigantic hammer that smashes it’s foes to putty. While I feel these segments are a nice break from Ryu’s story, they don’t really add anything (save a boss fight) and eventually, you just want to get back to what feels like the real game, because ultimately Ryu is more fun to control, as well as carries the weight of the story. Then again, perhaps this is just a result of my having played through the game before Rachel’s missions were included.

On the Vita, the game boasts a few new features, but they are all really just gimmicks. You can touch the screen to enter first-person view, and look around by moving the device, which is neat but entirely useless. However, when aiming a bow and arrow, you can fine tune your shot by moving the Vita slightly, until the target is lined up in your crosshairs. This was a great feature in Uncharted: Golden Abyss, and its useful here.

When you activate your Ninpo magic to attack enemies, you can strengthen it with a minigame that requires you to touch certain areas of the rear touchpad. While it’s fun the first ten times, as you get deeper into the game, it just gets annoying.

Finally, the game has numerous bonus missions, where you are tasked with defeating a bunch of enemies in an arena, sometimes with a particular twist, like one-hit kills. These missions tend to be pretty addictive as they purely focus on the combat engine, and they become much more difficult than the main game. If you’re looking to get mileage out of your purchase, this is where it’s at.


Madden 13

Infinity Engine

If you’re a Madden nerd like me, then you’re probably already well-aware of the new physics engine in this year’s game. For those of you that don’t know what Infinity Engine is, it’s essentially EA’s version of Natural Motion. No longer will we see an animation-based tackling system. In fact, to my knowledge, the only place we will see animations within gameplay, is for catches.

To be honest, I would have been way more enthusiastic for this year’s game if EA would have taken animations out of the game completely. My best guess is that EA may have tried removing catching animations, but as a result, they were getting some weird catching motions, and had to remove it from the engine, and re-implement catching animations. Nevertheless, the Infinity Engine is #1 on my list, and there will be new catching animations this year.

Pass Trajectories

This is long overdue, because if you’re anything like me, you were tired of superman linebackers a long time ago. If you’re unfamiliar with this feature, it will allow you to throw the ball with more accuracy. Do you want to throw high and outside, high and inside, low and outside, or somewhere else? The better your quarterback is, the more accurately you will be able to position the ball on its’ trajectory.

Read and React Defense

Last but not least, we were all tired of defensive backs mirroring our routes, right? With the new read and react defensive system, the defensive backs will first have to watch the receiver, and react to what he does. You do realize what this means, don’t you?

No longer will we have to live on corner routes. We will not be able to do out routes, in routes, and the infamous curl route. Best of all, for the first time ever, we will be able to be successful with these routes. This is a huge improvement, and I’m looking forward to it in Madden 13.

EA is set to deliver the best Madden game that they have ever released, but will it flop? That’s the big question. If Infinity Engine, pass trajectories, read and react defense, along with the other features in Madden 13 work like they should, then this will be a solid game that we will want to play all year around.


Tribez Review

For a simulation game, things move pretty quickly in The Tribez. Admittedly iv only played for a week but the longest iv had to wait for anything so far is about 4 hours. Those familiar with simulation games will know, that’s pretty fast. There’s an extensive story driven mission system that doubles as a training program, and a lot of your buildings and upgrades can only be unlocked by first completing a series of missions. Fans of H.G. Wells may also notice a few elements borrowed from The Time Machine.

You’ll start your game with only a handful of rundown huts, but with each new dwelling you build more tribesmen settle in, every new citizen is also a worker so the quicker you increase your population, the more stuff you can do at once and the quicker your progress will be. You can’t just spam houses down though, before putting a dwelling in your village you have to make sure your existing citizens are happy, which usually requires building some form of entertainment facility or placing decorations.

There is a great deal to build, almost overwhelming at first as the build menus are large and without the mission guidance, a little confusing. It shouldn’t take you long to get used to it though. What I found oppressive is the amount of clutter on the game screen, a lot of which could be reduced into drop down menus. The screen can feel very crowded at times but otherwise the visuals are amazing, high quality, clear and bright. There are noticeable changes in upgraded structures and your workers will sit down and daydream when idle.

As you run short in building room you’ll need to expand your borders, it’s expensive and the new areas need to be cleared of trees and rocks before building can commence, each new area is worked into the mission story though and subtly pulls you through the areas you need first. You’ll find little events hidden around the map as well, once opened up and a path cleared to them, you can open up a new quest line, among others you’ll find isolated villagers, enemy settlements, cave monsters and plane crashes. There’s a huge amount of map area to uncover, so the Tribez has a lot to offer content-wise.

You can broadcast your achievements to social media but I had to turn this feature off, for some reason it kept making the app crash and it gets a little annoying. IAPs are enabled in the form of crystals, some items in the shop can only be attained with crystals and you can speed up constructions with them. You’ll gain a few crystals through missions but not enough to get all the special items, thankfully though, advancement in the game doesn’t require the use of crystals and items bought IAP can be helpful but aren’t necessary for advancement.


About Okabu

Okabu is like that beautiful person. It has been blessed with the most beautiful graphics and artwork. The scenery is fantastic, displaying sharp, clear graphics and pictures. But the actual gameplay is tedious and boring. The puzzles are explained to such an extent that you solve them without any challenge. The situations and obstacles are so easy to overcome you can probably do them blindfolded.

The main characters are two cloud whales called Nimbe and Kumulo. You originally lived in the sky above but have left your home to find the pollution that’s killing off your race. On earth you find an evil race called the Doza. They are destroying the earth with pollution and toxic waste. You eventually meet the Yoruba who are a race also trying to save the earth. You resort to guerrilla tactics and fight the Doza. You must destroy all the inventions the Doza have created as it is harmful to the earth and environment.

The whales can fly and they can also absorb fluids. Early in the game they water the earth in this manner. They can also spit oil making paths which can be lit with fire. The whales are made from clouds so their abilities seem interesting and fun. But the tasks they perform throughout the game are the same and eventually repetitively doing the same thing over and over kills the game. The obstacles are limited and you will eventually foresee what lies ahead and just do more of the same.

There are creatures that mount the whales and ride them. The riders can shoot at enemies and other characters, but again you will be doing so much of that, it will eventually become boring and tedious. You don’t have to do any thinking as the game is so easy even a child can accomplish all the tasks without any difficulty.

You can choose co-op mode but this doesn’t make the game any more interesting or exciting. You may as well play solo, there is no difference. The music is quite good, but other than that, the game is a lack luster adventure that fails miserably.


Crysis 3

The single-player portion begins 24 years after the events of the previous game. New York City is basically a jungle, The main character, Prophet, is on a personal revenge quest. The main antagonist is the human corporation CELL; without giving too much away, they aren’t exactly the brains of the operation. Not especially riveting stuff but the pacing proceeds quite nicely.

What was really awesome was the optional re-cap of the previous games’ storylines- I wish more developers would do this with sequels. When you first boot-up the single-player you’re given a choice of reviewing the stories of the older Crysis games. This was a very nifty feature, and especially handy for such a confusing and tangled narrative.

And that leads us to one of Crysis 3‘s biggest missteps: the actual storyline. It’s a bad sign when you’re more focused on standard first-person shooter mechanics and the pretty visuals than actually listening to the guy who keeps buzzing in your ear about this and that. In fact, the confusing storyline actually got in the way of the bread-and-butter shooting aspects of the game. You simply don’t care which characters live or die; you just want them to shut up so you can start blasting things again.

Speaking of blasting, Crysis 3 has a lot of it. The gameplay seems like standard first-person shooter mechanics- and it is- but with one main difference: the game is stunningly beautiful. Even when it slows down because of the framerate issues, it’s still fun to see how many things you can blow up at once.

If you’ve played a first person shooter in the last 5 years, you’ve played Crysis 3. That’s not necessarily a bad thing but it’s not exactly fresh. You can cloak and assassinate things from behind, load yourself with armor and detach a turret and do your best Rambo impersonations. All of these things are extremely fun but again, you’ve played all this before. With so many better game options on the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3, it’s hard to recommend this game.

Once you finish the relatively short single player, you have the now standard multiplayer to tromp through. It was enjoyable but again too familiar. Despite this, I did thoroughly enjoy Hunter, where two players are randomly assigned as the overpowered super soldiers from the single player and the rest are standard weakling soldiers. As the soldiers you’re forced to work together as you’re systematically hunted by the sharply dressed predators. It was fun to work together with your other teammates, while holding hands singing kumbaya and hoping for the best.

Like Call of Duty, you can level up and customize your profile. You can edit your dogtag, background, weapons, etc. Just like Call of Duty, once you hit maximum rank you can also reset your rank and continue up the ladder. All of this is fun and familiar. It’s just not going to keep you around for very long.


Wireless Xbox 360 Controller

Combined with standard control keys to manage your video game, it also has an awesome style so that gamers can play in a relaxed manner, as long as a gamer is at ease with his controller, he will keep on succeeding with his video games. Ease,comfort and capability are achievable as long as this controller is being used. In addition, it also has a shake feedback for a modified gaming experience, many people like the vibration feedback purpose because other remotes don’t have this new function. It is one thing new in the wireless controller that was not present in other remotes. Snarled and twisted cables will not frustrate you any longer. What more does a video gamer need? You can perform effortlessly while laying back on the couch within a specific range and having all the fun you want from the ease and comfort of this controller.

Video games have grown to be one of the best preferred pastimes in young groups of people, more and more video games with more technical specs have been launched. This has made the older generation group start to take part in video games as well. Wireless Xbox 360 controller is the new improvement in playing, what I like best about this controller is that it has no cable connections at all.

With this product you can basically get easy entry to 360 capabilities as well as tunes, photographs and video, furthermore, you can also support 4 wireless Xbox 360 controllers as well, because this remote is wireless, you can easily play your game inside the 30 meter range, this enables the individual to relax on the sofa or mattress while enjoying the video game.

It uses the standard rechargeable battery packs so it’s far better to retain or hold energized power, Normally, battery packs last up to 100 working hours. No question, this wireless controller is much more costly than a wired one, but it is well worth purchasing for the reason that your video gaming experience will never been better.


MW3 Strategies

As I was saying, and as you probably already know, COD MW3 has changed quite a bit since the last version of the game. For example, instead of having kill streaks, you now have what is called strike chains. This changes the game in a few important ways and that is one of the things we will be discussing in this article. Also, the weapons have changed, and now you will be able to level your weapons, unlocking weapon proficiencies as you go, allowing you to become more effective and powerful the more you play the game. Lets discuss these two topics in a little more detail to help you understand their importance a bit better.

Most people who start playing Modern Warfare 3 pick the assault class as their character, because the think they are just going to run around and “pray and spray” everyone, racking up the kills and points they desire and it’s as easy as that right? Wrong! Now with the new implementation of strike chains a better way to rack up points is to use the support class and provide covering fire for your teammates. If you still desire to be a lone wolf however, the best class for you to pick would be a specialist, this class will allow you to run around with your guns blazing and you will rack up more points than just being the basic assault class, not that the assault class is not useful, but if you”re looking to rack up points there are better ways to do it and that is what I am letting you know.

Another great strategy for MW3 is to get your hands on the best weapons available to your class and rack up the kills leveling your weapon skills and unlocking the awesome weapon proficiencies that make all of the difference in the world when you are trying to rack up a bunch of kills and dramatically increase your kill/death ratio.

One of the best little bits of tactical advice I can give you is to get yourself a decent strategy guide. There are guides out there that provide you with all kinds of secrets, tactics, strategies and tips that 90% of other players know nothing about. This will give you a huge advantage and leap in skill. You will discover that you are quickly ranking up there with the pros using the specific tactics laid out for you in a clear and concise manner. There are all kinds of guides out there to choose from. Everything from the very basic class leveling guide to the complete guide that walks you through every aspect of Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 3 with HD videos and everything, showing you all of the best places to hide and slaughter tons of enemies as well as how to navigate all of the maps while remaining undetected.
