A Different Point of reView

a different point of review shadow of mordor

Have I seen the ranger? Ha! I done killed ‘im. Twice. Know a dozen orcs like myself who killed ‘im at least once. Bugger always comes back, though. Each time I killed ‘im, I got myself a promotion. Then I fought my way up higher. That’s how I got to bossin’ you ‘round, maggot, and how I got this here armor. Every promotion shows off how much stronger I’ become. But I ain’t the only one shufflin’ around the ranks and gettin’ stronger when one of the boys kill the ranger. Seems like every orc worth a name fights to fill in the new positions when the ranger kills one of us, and we all fights our way to the top. Continue reading

A Different Point of reView

I like trying new things.

A Different Point of reView is a video game review in the form of a short story. The aim is to engage and interest the reader with a good story while capturing the tone and spirit of the game in the style and content of the text. The story itself will convey the necessary components of a review while telling a story through the eyes of a character within the game.

A Different Point of reView will pop up around once a month, and the first one will be available within a few days. This is separate from my video review Is It Worth $12? Without a paying outlet, it’s something I can only do in my free time. Thus, around once a month is my best estimation.

Thanks for being awesome! I look forward to dropping these for you.

Is It Worth $12? A Humble Monthly Preview

When all the hype dies down, all the patches are finished, and time has let the game settle into its place, I want to answer one simple question about the game: Is it worth $12?

Is It Worth $12? is a fresh video review of the early unlock game Humble Monthly offers so you can decide if the game is worth $12.

I’ll be doing one each month for several months, putting the review up 1-2 weeks after the Humble Monthly is available. This gives you plenty of time to decide if you want to spend the $12 dollars this month or not.

The first one is up: Pillars of Eternity for August 2017 Humble Monthly. Which if you’re still uncertain about purchasing, you have two more days to decide.

Late to the Party: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

qwe3

Price I Paid: $4.00

Available On: PC (Reviewed), PlayStation 3, Xbox 360.

It’s a humbling experience when I start raving about something only to change my tune before it’s over. It’s the same feeling I suspect new parents have after two months of insufficient sleep from a crying newborn. Understandably, you might think that you know what I’m going to say about Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning and stop reading now, but don’t. It’s not because I get paid when you click to read the full review (because I don’t get paid anything for this), but because there was so much the game did right. Despite my wavering feelings for it after twenty-some hours, you may find it to your liking. Continue reading

Late to the Party: Resident Evil Six

re6

Reviewed on: PC (Steam)

Original Release: October 2012. Released March 2013 for PC and re-released for PS4 and Xbone March 2016.

I love enjoyably bad things. Things like cheesy fantasy movies with grand ideas and a $15 budget or melodramas that have no talent on display can be wildly entertaining. This is true of games as well. Army of Two and Gears of War 2 are truly bad games to me, but I had a blast playing the campaign mode with friends. Resident Evil 6 fails and succeeds at so many different things, I’m not sure I could categorize it as good or bad. But there is one label that does fit: fun.

Games on the Throne10What is it?

The Last Vikings is… a resource gathering game featuring tiny pixilated vikings that do things when you press a button at the right time to gain a minor but positive outcome that varies depending on your situation… It is slightly more enjoyable than it sounds.
