Sunday Funday – Cancelled

Today was not a fun Sunday. Today was a ‘I desperately need sleep but can’t get any’ Sunday.

So yeah. No games today. Sorry.

Sunday Funday #4 – Tap Titans

 Tap Titans – Game Hive Corp. – Android & iOS

Can someone please explain to me the psychology behind these tap-tap games? There’s almost zero skill behind them, and I get the feeling that it’s just a time-waster, mind-number kind of mentality behind their appeal, but I’m not usually into time-wasting games. I mean, but definition, most video games will help you ‘waste time,’ but you get what I mean. I hope.

Anyway, I started playing this game yesterday, and not only am I incredibly far through the game, but I’m obsessed with getting further. I get the feeling this is going to be one of those games to completely wreck my life. And for what? To tap my screen until my fingers can’t handle it any longer?

It’s okay, my fingers could surely use the workout.

I didn’t make a video this week because, well, all you do for this game is tap the screen. That’s not fun to watch, and I wouldn’t expect anyone to want to watch that. Instead, .gifs are perfect. It’ll just loop and loop and suck you in, kind of like this game.

Don’t mistake this as me not recommending this game. I do recommend it. Please, come wreck your lives with me.

Sunday Funday #3 – Asphalt 8: Airborne

Asphalt 8: Airborne – Gameloft – Android and iOS

I’ve had a lot going on the past few days, so I haven’t had a lot of time to do much, which is why this game is my Sunday Funday. It’s fun and it’s fast. I was able to get all I needed for the video from the game in under an hour.

It’s a racing game. You should know what to expect when you’re playing one. Though this is the first time I’ve played a racing game with infection mode. It’s hilarious. The person in last place gets infected, and then infects everyone they run into. When you’re infected, you get infinite nitro and timer to your car blowing up. The first person to cross the finish line wins. It’s fast paced and crazy.

I’m actually going to go play a round right now. Ttyl.

Sunday Funday #2 – Modern Combat 5: Blackout

Modern Combat 5: Blackout – Gameloft

I wonder how long it will take for me to get completely annoyed by my computer auto-correcting Funday to Sunday…

So. Modern Combat 5. It’s a FPS (First Person Shooter) game. It’s bloody. It’s gory. You kill people. If that’s not your thing, don’t watch the video, so read the post, don’t play the game. Just walk (or click) away. You’ve been warned. I really don’t want to hear any complaints. Thanks.

This is one of those games I enjoy playing when I only have a few minutes and just want a quick distraction. The game does have a campaign story mode, but I usually just play the online multiplayer. The assault and recon categories are my favorites to play. As you can tell from the video, I’m absolutely terrible as a sniper or a heavy. I did gain a few points towards a new handgun today, though. Which is good, because I hardly ever use them. The first tier one doesn’t do much, but I picked up someone else’s after they dropped it when they died, and I’m not sure what tier it was, but it was pretty good.

I’m just proud of myself for trying out all of the classes for the video today. Variety!

The first game I played today went into triple overtime. The game won’t allow you to tie in multiplayer, instead one minute will get added to the clock until there’s a clear winner. I was staying neck in neck with this other guy, until finally some random player came out of nowhere to steal the win from both of us. It was certainly the longest multiplayer game I’ve ever played. And I love that there are different multiplayer game modes. You can go Free-for-All and have everyone be the enemy, or do a team or squad battle where you’ve got allies, ones you either know or don’t. VIP is just like a team battle, only one player on each team becomes the target for the other team (the VIP). And then there’s the classic Capture the Flag. I’m horrible at Capture the Flag.

If you go and take a look at this game, you’ll see that it costs money. Well, you should know that this is one of the few games I have that I actually paid for. It’s worth it. And if you’re still not sure, Gameloft does sales every once in a while. But there are no ads and you have unlimited access to everything in the game. For a game I’ll play for maybe half an hour a day, and have ever since I got it a month ago, the $4 was worth it.

On Twitch, AGeekyChick streams MC5 on Gameloft’s channel every Tuesday night, and I’m usually hanging out playing. The game doesn’t have a player search, but if you’re not in a squad, you can find me by searching for my squad. I’m currently in AbandoNaTion, and my IGN is Hissaelil. If you can find me, feel free to add me, and maybe we’ll play a match or two! 🙂

 

Sunday Funday #1 – Vainglory

Vainglory – Super Evil Megacorp – appstore.com/vainglory

My first Sunday Funday! It’s still Sunday somewhere…

This wasn’t the best start to something I want to make happen every week, but hey, it means there’s nowhere to go but up from here. And let me tell you, that’s true in every aspect. I’ve done work as a video editor before, and it makes me cringe both inside and outside to know that I barely watched this video before I exported and uploaded. My computer just wasn’t agreeing with me and… it’s just a long story, okay? One I’m not in the mood to get into. It’s behind me. It’s staying there.

So! Vainglory! This is by far my favorite game at the moment! And for those of you who might thinking this, I didn’t do this video because they asked, or because I’m getting anything out of it other than pure joy. I love playing the game. It would be an honor I don’t expect to ever get from the game developers (or devs) to be asked to make a video for them.

Speaking of the game devs (who for this game are really nice, btw), I actually ran into one today. I played and recorded seven games today, and in the second game, I ran into Noxii, who you can tell is a dev in the video above by her deep red name. It’s really cool that they actually appear in the game randomly and play with everyone. That’s something I love about them; they’re not only making a great game, but they’re making a great game that they love playing.

Vainglory is the first MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena for people not so familiar with the lingo), that I played and actually liked playing. So many out there are so complicated and hard to get into that I feel like you have to be determined to play, or your brain just has to work that way, which mine doesn’t exactly. Well it didn’t. I’m fairly certain I could pave my way through some of the other MOBA’s out there. I actually downloaded the beta for Heroes of the Storm the other day, though I haven’t gotten much of a chance to give it a try. I’ve also tried DOTA, though I’m still working my way through the training to get used to the controls.

I’m certainly not the best player ever, and I doubt I ever will be, but the game is too much fun for me to even care about that. And it has a great community on Twitch.tv. I spend more time than I probably should on twitch watching and playing with the streamers for the game. I would stream myself if I thought my computer could handle it. I still may give it a try one of these days.

I’m pretty certain that I’d made a list of things in my head to talk about with this game, but that was hours beyond hours ago, and I’m about to pass out. I’m actually having a hard time figuring out how I wrote as much as I have. If anyone has any questions about the game, feel free to ask me. I know a lot about the meta, the characters, and the actual gameplay of the game (mostly from watching and playing with people on twitch! It’s a great place to find other people to play with!)

My IGN is Hissaelil. Please feel free to add me and we can play sometime! (I mostly play Joule and Celeste (she’s by far my favorite new character to have come out), though for the video today I wish I would have played a few others for some variety.) I am on the NA server, though, so if you’re anywhere outside NA, we can’t play right now because I don’t have an account set up for anywhere else. Also, I don’t accept guests as friends, so take a second to name your account before you add me (I’m always shocked about the amount of guests I see in the game…).
