Cute. Fun. Mysterious
What a great game to play, after more than one failed recording (all of my own fault) I almost gave up playing, but I am so glad I didn’t as this was so much fun when I really got into it. Playing as Alexis in a robot filled world you decide to go on a search for the mystical human, switching a story up from perhaps playing as a human searching for some other mythical creature.
Simple. Upbeat. Challenging.
These are how I would describe the above game, designed and created by indie developer DarkBloodbane, L.I.F.T is a retro style shooter where you must take out the evil robot group (Falcor) protecting skyscrapers as you ascend in the elevator.
Everyone has a first game, whatever console it was on, everyone remembers the first game they ever played and for me that was Wonder Boy 3 The Dragons Trap. Released on the SEGA Master System I remember sitting on my living room floor with my older brothers trying to navigate through the different areas of the game, defeating monsters and changing forms. Then, quite a few years later I saw it on the Virtual Console on the Wii and I jumped at the chance to play it again, bringing back all the nostalgia and enjoyment I had when I was young. And not all games stand the test of time…but this did and now, in April 2017 it is coming back once more in an all new remake! Here’s why I think it deserves the remake and why it stands the test of time.
There’s no secret way of getting past the toughest boss in Undertale (genocide run), all I can show you is how I did it. All I will say is that you learn from defeat, learn his moves, learn when to dodge, learn when to move, learn when to hit and most importantly…be patient because one way or another….YOUR GONNA HAVE A BAD TIME!
There’s one thing at my childhood I will never forget, it was when my cousin came over and brought a PS1 game to play with my older brothers. Obviously my gaming curiosity peaked and had to check it out, I happened to walk in and watch from the very moment Leon’s head arches up and see’s THAT LICKER staring back down at him…my eyes widened and I was introduced to Resident Evil.
From playing it I always couldn’t quite figure something out, I know what zombies were and how they worked and that humans turn into them, but what about Lickers. What was a Licker pre T-virus?
I just had to find out…and the results were…interesting…
Side Quests, a term I had not really heard of until the PS3 came out and I bought my first
Assassin’s Creed game. Gaming has changed so much, in particular with open world games Like Fallout, that the main campaign according to developers is not enough content within it to get the full experience of these games…enter side quests. Side quests are missions, or tasks you complete that have no irrevocable effect on the main story and can be completely unrelated to the focus of the game. However what they generally offer (at least in Fallout 4) is experience, new weapons, armor or items, even a mild story-esque mission of its own to improve the overall experience of your gameplay.
