HOTS IS NOT FOR TOTS!

Heroes of the storm?

DISCLAIMER: To those that choose to play this great, such spice and juice flowing game. I come to you with a heavy heart that this is not for new players yearning for a new MOBA to suffice their ever-growing bloodlust. This once great nay! Magnificent and brilliant game used to be a ballet of team fights and objective taking with fights betwixt the lanes has now been reduced to a game of backing out of fights and worrying about self-preservation. TRY BEFORE YOU BUY! (yes I know the game is free) is all I can say.

history time.

6 years of game time is how long I have logged into this game, I was one of the few to still play and have the same account since Alpha, and boy it’s annoying that it has an effect on my overall standings due to this game doing a 2.0 swap back in 2017 ( the original game was getting too big and we needed more)…. we had all the promise in world E-sports deals, a way to break into the majors by being a nobody HGC!! Make a team, get good, compete, climb, and make it to glory!! then nothing all gone puff but yet the community persevered and carries on with small events and trying to get the competitive scene going back to the golden days.

a great game.

Thank you for getting past my little rant…it’s just been a rough time, getting used to new players changing and playing a way that cuts into the game that they oversee and should always have in mind.

This game is beautiful bar none for MOBAS, I think it does that is, the number of settings will allow most players to use all the ragdoll effects and see the maps and heroes with a crisp feel.

Loads almost a boatload, I would say of all the toons to choose from all the different Blizz games. The Nexus will break you and can make you a champion. The A.I. mode is a great way to try new heroes that are new to your roster and or you want to perfect your aim. TRY IT!

Another reason to play is for the mere fact that you get to be all the most amazeballs heroes known to all Blizzkind. Also so many skins and fun mounts to match all your silly outfits!

Lanes and The Map.

Watch the lanes and your mini-map and look for the little heads if they’re gone…it might be a gank and you need to ping and call out to your teammate before they get the ax…. this is going to be all too common a situation for you when navigating around.

The mini-map is your best friend and should always be reading it. The map will tell you when enemies are not visible thus prompting caution or action depending on your teammates’ location and time of travel to get to said location.

Laning is essential until you get a high enough in team Lvl to just go and raffle stomp the other team. be mindful of what the team is doing and adjust to what’s happening, try not to stay to a lane when the team is just getting slain. You might be thinking why? well, it’s a team game, and as a team, magic happens.

HOTS has 15 maps that are going to be a blast to get to know, two or three-lane maps are what we’re working with all with a different objective that ranges from capping a dragon or unleashing the Horde. They all rotate around so you’re never playing the same maps.

Best hidden mechanic.

Now we have come to the best and single truly a most satisfying thing, about this game is NEVER EVER I MEAN NEVER GIVE UP!!! Sorry for that, HOTS is the only game where you can be just getting turned into last week’s tuna surprise but fret not mon amis. We saved the best for last ready for the secret???? One fight can turn the whole game around… how you ask?? well after 20 the game no longer has talents so everything you have done to this point is it your quest and or damage…. it all just scales and scales. So pick up your heads and never stop fighting in the Nexus!

All and all this game will make you rage but it’s so great to play with a good team and just have fun. Take it game by game. I will see you soon in the Nexus.

8/10 for me only due to my personal play style.

Pokémon Snap: AHH SNAP!

Let’s go back to the year 1999 when I was just a youngling learning the ways of the Nintendo 64 and all of its glory. There came out a wonderful game of such impact that I didn’t even know that to this day, I still would be gushing in awe that I still remember and love it soo much!

Time for a trip to the beach

Here you are looking at this game and not knowing what is about to do down. Insert the cartridge to get that satisfying feel, see the beautiful N64 logo floating and cutting to “POKEMON ISLAND” without foreknowledge your about to go down to witness Pokémon like we have never before. Skipping ahead past the start screen, just to get to the best part of getting ported down a track and your ZERO-ONE pod that goes to the “GOAL-GATE” to exit the current level, here we will sit back and whip out the “Poke-Cam” out and begin our great journey of capturing great almost amazing picture’s. The first Pokémon we encounter on the beach is a “Pidgey” and not just one but almost a whole flock. Equipped only with just a roll of 60 pictures before our “FILM” ( I have put the word “FILM” in quotations for the reason that whoever reads this knows that we used to have a physical form of photography and not just digital media and yes even in a video game where they could’ve just given us all the space.) would run out so making sure to take only the best and identifying pics to add to our new and growing collection.

All of the Easter Eggs!

For all those that think that this is just a snap and go….. let me tell you that you will be pleasantly surprised for this ALL MIGHT of a game! Get ready for a Detroit slam to just blindside you. The amount of work you must put in to figure out that every level that you will play has so many different Pokémon interactions. Apples, pester balls, and ZEE Poke-Flute, these items become your best friend to get to all the awesome and special interactions on every level that we travel to. My favorite one has to be the Magikarp to Gyarados evolve. We first start off by trying to knock a Magikarp at a Mankey with a pester ball that will then hit it over to the dancing Gravelers, proceed to throw another pester ball to knock it over to the waterfall, where it jumps in and out pops out a Gyarados!! OOOOO buddy my first time doing this is still one of my top moments in this beautiful game. Take your time to enjoy the fact that you are taking pictures of Pokémon in an almost pure state free and wild!

New Pokémon snap!

OMG!!! 22 long years and here in April. We will be receiving something so grand yet so majestic to tantalize our imagination’s as new and veterans return to take a plethora of such great pictures. The game will take place on three different islands! We shall be also be figuring out a mysterious glow that is on the Pokémon “The Illumina Phenomenon”. Lental region is looking to be the best place for us to pick back up where our “PHOTO POKE- JOURNMILISM” began. My only reservation for this is that I hope they make so many different interactions that every playthrough is fresh not just a copy and paste of the last one. My excitement is through the roof so hold on to your butts for this new endeavor!

Among Us: Small Game, Big Fun

Let’s get this started then! What can we say about this beast of a game, for starters: USER BEWARE!!

This game is not for the weak-hearted and big ego headed peeps. One moment you could be minding your own damn business just doing your tasks, not a single worry on your mind other than just to my task, get it done and move on to the next. Little did you know that around the corner could be your buddy blue, red or maybe….just maybe its the sneaky sneak known as the IMPOSTER.

The three maps that will lead to your DEMISE!

So you have chosen your first map and it so happens to be: MIRA HQ, POLUS, or the all time champ of a map THE SKELD. Be wary of those you trust and have a little more trust in those you don’t.

THE SKELD

Here, we have the map for your enjoyment also this will be the only map I put here, cant give away the game to you all in one go now can I?

The Skeld is the classic go to map when you think of this game. The layout is simple and pleasing to the mind no big things to think about when navigating your way whilst not trying to get lost. Remember “giant circle” and almost everything should be just fine I hope…. moving on, this map is where most of your games of Among Us will be played since its the easiest and most fun to get into game after game. my recommendations about this map are as follows:

  1. Stay as close to someone as possible.
  2. Check security for cams and admin for players on the map.
  3. Always (and I mean always) try to avoid long periods in electrical. Peeps be thinking you are nothing but SUS!
  4. This is no way in fact going to increase your win rate. Enjoy the game and make it your own.

Mira HQ and POLUS the two maps you will or wont play.

This is no way saying these two maps are bad in any way whatsoever. It just so happens that they are just way more challenging for other players thus making it harder to get into games with either map chosen. With no doubt id play a lot more of these two awesome maps if more games could be available.

Mira HQ might have the shortest task list but it also has a lot of corridors with doors and vents that make it easier for you to feel the icy cold hand of death brought to you by the local IMPOSTER-MAN. Truly, if you play this map, its wicked fun and you will have a blast just be ready to wait airlocks.

Polus, the Big BOI map if you want to spend all of your time trying to find a killer and not be killed, then you have come to the right place. This map has it all for you. Airlocks that change every time you need to open the doors? Check! Lava pit for all your warming needs, holes to look at and wonder why? I mean I know why, but still, just run from them. The IMPOSSTERINO will come out if you’re not attentive to your surroundings.

ZEE IMPOSTER

Hey you! YEAH! You, the sly guy there by the vent, how you doing? I see that you just vented over there and now you’re walking away like it was nothing, right? WRONG!! You have been spotted and now an emergency meeting has been called. What do you do? Honestly, take the L, buddy. That’s it, game over, try next time. Good thinking there using the vent.

For all my “NIGHT STALKER” wannabes out there, use those vents to get away to get ahead of your next victim, or just to look inconspicuous to not get caught and plan that next step into the darkness. Imposter is the best role to get if you enjoy being a con and the best liar you can be. Make them not know that you’re the one killing everyone, and always push blame onto those who were nearby. Kill or be killed is the point, so my little monsters out there, get to slaying and have fun.

Now for the real warning !!!!PLEASE PLEASE!!!!! Be careful when playing with friends or (soon to be) ex-friends.

This last part is to all that wanna play with group of friends and have a great time. Yay, SOOO much fun, right? How did it go? Were you the IMPOSTER? Did you lie about slaying your best friend and are now plotting to take out the next one in a certain order as they have killed you in prior games? No? That’s just me? Well okay then. So yeah, this game makes you think on the darker side of things. But hey, it’s fun! Enjoy this great game and play lots and lots of games until you have your own way fooling the fools.

One more thing, they’re coming out with a new map soon and we will continue our journey to catch the imposter and toss them out! THE AIR SHIP MAP!
