Grimshade Gouki.com Review

By: goukijones Apr 29, 2019 | 1 Comments

What I had the most trouble with was reading the map. I couldn’t make it out of the first zone or past the quest “Stashes of Brann.”

Grimshade is a tactical turn-based game.  During battle the teams are separated by a line down the middle of the battle field.  You have a small grid to move your characters around on.  It’s not free roaming like Final Fantasy Tactics, you can’t walk to the side of an enemy or get behind them.  Some of the characters have moves that get behind the enemies, but every fight takes place with this virtual line in the sand. 

I started the game on the hardest difficulty setting.  The combat early felt more like I was just memorizing the sequence of attacks from the enemy to be ready to counter.  I didn’t mind this and felt the combat getting more challenging with each fight, especially when I started adding more party members.

What I had the most trouble with was reading the map.  I couldn’t make it out of the first zone or past the quest “Stashes of Brann.”  I have played many games in my lifetime and spent two 90 minute sessions running around this map looking for this one missing item. I had collected two of the three items and the map showed me the general area they were located, but not exactly where.  You can walk right into different areas of the map without any indication that it is happening. So I had the idea of just going around the outside and inside walls to search for the missing item.  When I found the second item it was hidden underneath a floor tile.  At this point I knew for sure which area one of the three items came from. The second item in my inventory I did not know what area I had picked it up in so that meant I had to search both areas again.   This is when the back and forth started for like two hours.  I knew it was one of two areas and I felt like I had completely combed both areas and clicked on everything possible.  This is when I began to think that I may have glitched the game.

Generation Zero Beta Review

Coming in 2019!

Generation Zero Beta Review

We played this together a few times.  We didn’t find the game play very exciting or very in depth.  GrrrtyGirl (My wife) made it clear that she wasn’t having fun killing the robot dogs.  She was bored that it was all you could do in the game. We streamed a session where we are in the dark for over an hour, but at least the fireworks look cool at night.

If you are a Star Wars fan and haven't tried this game, you should really think about it!

When the game was to be released, Star Wars Battlefront II was all up in controversy.  There was going to be a pay-to-win system in the game.  At that point I was already out.  Wait just one moment though… right before the game was released EA announces that loot crates won’t take real money and the system was going to be reworked.  I still didn’t buy it so I decided to watch a bunch of different streams for about a week and then make my decision.  What I saw was people having fun.  A Lot of fun and I was in. 

I played it pretty hardcore everyday for almost 4 months.  I was rank 43 (50 was the highest at the time.) and I had all of the guns and attachments unlocked.  I didn’t have all of the Star Cards.  Star Cards were the packs you opened up to level up your cards.  You could still just play the game and get the ingame free credits and buy the crates to level up the cards.  That’s what I did.  My collection was solid.  Boba Fett was my absolute favorite.  He was eventually nerfed, but I still have good chemistry with the controls.  Star Wars Battlefront II has been a very solid experience for me.  I love the game.

You can not stop the night from coming.

I am loving this game.  This is my favorite 2018 Indie game to date.  I can not stop digging.  It has everything I love in a thrilling game play experience.  You can build giant forts and setup a defense with turrets and traps.  There are tons of places for exploration and many different materials to farm.  There are over a hundred different things to craft including guns, armor, doors, and power generators.  There is an entire water pressure dam system you can design and build on your own. That’s how you generate power for teleporters, doors, and turrets.  I’m telling you, it's incredible!

During the Fortnite Pro-Am the internet did a crazy tilt with search analytics. Search engines became the tool used to find more information about the celebrity entrants and who they were playing with. The top searches may surprise you. They did me.

YouPorn reported Gamer traffic was down -13.57% during the event. This is evidence that gamers do have other interests beyond just the thrill of playing their favorite game. The Fortnite Pro-Am was the second major event for Fortnite this year. The first event hosted by Twitch streamer Ninja was located in Las Vegas and aptly name Ninja Vegas. Fortnite is a very interesting and exciting game to watch, especially at the high levels these players strive to maintain. At some points the storm area would get so small with 6 players still competing for the #1 spot.  Towers being built to the sky, strategies and high-level endgame fighting that we had never really seen before.
