Super Smash Brothers for the 3DS

Hey guys! I deeply apologize for the lack of posts with no set schedule. I promise, I’ll have an uploading schedule soon! I just got off of summer break and today was the first day of school. If you’re in school, did you enjoy your summer break?

Anyways, lets get to the topic of the game. Super Smash Brothers for the 3DS. This game has been long awaited and by what they’re saying is supposed to be awesome! This game is just one of many Super Smash Brothers games. This version is said to be in stores by 10/3/14, so there’s still a LOT of waiting. There’s another version for this for the Wii U and it’s basically the same exact thing. If you don’t already know about this game or any other games in the series, Super Smash Brothers in general is a competitive fighting game where you fight against either other people or computers. All the players you can unlock and play up to 68 characters, each and every one with their own special attacks, powers, and abilities. 68 characters! And they could add more.

So that’s basically Super Smash Brothers for the 3DS in a nutshell. Hope you enjoyed!Super SMash CharactersSUper Smash Slender

Super Smash Bros. U/3-D. Miis for Wiis.

Recently E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) was hosted and they talked about new games that are coming out, including the new Super Smash Bros. game. Now I have all the previous games and loved them, so i’m really excited for this and from what I heard it’ll be the best yet. First off for those of you without a Wii U, it will also come out for the 3DS, but it has some differences. They both have the same characters, but they have different stages. The 3DS  version will have stages from handheld games and the Wii U will have stages from console games. Also there will be new characters such as Mega Man, Rosalina, Wii Fit Trainer, Villager, Pacman, Greninja, Little Mac, Palutena, and Miis, yes Miis. The Miis have 3 classes and from each class you can choose from many moves. Also they separated some characters that change from one to another to make 1 into 2 and then upgraded them, or with some they just trashed the other. The separated characters are, Zelda and Sheik, and Samus and Zero Suit Samus, and the one that got the rest trashed used to be Pokemon Trainer, but is now just Charizard. Also they upgraded all the characters from the previous game. For those of you who want to know when it is coming out, the 3DS version is coming out September 3rd and the Wii U version is coming out around Christmas. I hope this helped, and to here more go to, http://www.smashbros.com/us/index.html#CharacterList or http://www.gamespot.com/e3/nintendo-press-conference-2014/ to hear about it in their conference. That is all for me so until next time, play more games.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: Universe in Peril

Hey everyone! It’s Kaitlynn! Today’s (late) review is going to be about “LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: Universe in Peril” for the 3DS. In this game, you get to play as many Marvel characters, such as Iron Man (my favorite!), Spiderman, the Hulk, Captain America, The Black Widow, Wolverine, and many others. Your job is to stop Loki and other villains from the Marvel franchise from creating a weapon to destroy the world. A cool bonus is that there is actual audio from the movie in the game.

Overall, I’d rate this game 4.4 out of 5 stars. It was an excellently designed game. Thank you guys for reading. I hope you enjoyed!

Clash of Clans

Clash of Clans is an app store game for your phone, iPod, etc. The game is free to get. This game came out on September 30, 2013 on Android in Canada and Finland. It came outeverywhere else on October 7, 2013. This had been on the top 5 list for a long period of time. Clash of Clans and Hayday had reported of getting about $2.4 million per day for the company, Supercell, for the first half of 2013.

The goal of the game is to make a fort, castle, or kingdom and to go destroy other ones in the campaign or the ones online against other players. To do this, you need to build up an army of troops ranging from warriors to giants or from wizards to dragons or balloons. You need elixir and gold, to make them and to make your kingdom by adding new buildings, upgrading buildings, building walls, upgrading walls, making defence mechanisms and upgrading those too.

And of course, as in the title, you can join other people through making a clan together, managing it with ranks, and trading troops to help each other out with battling and defending. You can make up your clan name as well.

When I first played this game, I thought it was just a rip off of a game I found at Kongregate.com , until I played through a bit of this and realized its way different. I joined my friend, Philip (which is his profiles name) and his clan, Shop ‘N’ Save (Don’t ask why it was that name). I enjoyed playing this game, but I got bored too easily of it after a while of playing it for a couple of weeks. I kept having troubles with random raids on my fort because people were able to spawn troops inside my walls. In this game, the ranking is in levels such as silver 1 or gold 3. Your rank would be decided on how many trophies you had, which you would earn through raiding others and lose through losing to people attacking you and succeeding. I got stuck and kept winning battle and losing defences. I decided to give up the game since I couldn’t get anywhere.

In my opinion, I would overall rate this game a 3.5 out of 5. It was fun while it lasted, but getting stuck isn’t fun at all. If you have any games you would like us to review in the future, or if you have anything to say about this at all, please leave a comment below. Have a great day!

 

 

Poke Rumor

The new Pokemon games have come out and now it’s time for the rumors to start. Pokemon X and Y are the newest games to be released. Since they’ve been out, a rumor been going around on the internet that a Pokemon game is coming out and it’s called Pokemon Z . Its based on the legendary Pokemon, Zygarde, which you can get after you beat the elite four in the Pokemon games, X and Y. You can find it in a random cave. Even though the story line for the Pokemon games X and Y, were great, after they released them, I know they usually released another Pokemon game afterwards. As I know(in my opinion), Zygarde isn’t a great Pokemon. I wonder how they are going to use him in the Pokemon story line. Comment below if you can find out on how they could use him. Have a happy Valentines Day!

Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops

Hey guys! It’s Kaitlynn here with a new handheld game review. This one is “Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops” for the Play Station Portable (PSP). Even though I’m a girl, I’m a huge fan of the Metal Gear series. In this game you play as Big Boss. This game is a follow up of “Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater”. This game series is very hard to understand so I suggest looking at youtube videos to help understand the plot. This is the plot of the story from Wikipedia: “

Setting

Portable Ops takes place in 1970, six years after Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. It follows the soldier Naked Snake (Akio ŌtsukaDavid Hayter) who is forced to fight off his former unit, FOX, after they instigate a revolt in a South American base. In his fight he meets Roy Campbell (Toshio Furukawa,David Agranov), a surviving member of the Green Berets team that was sent to investigate the affair. Snake’s former teammates including his commanding officer Major Zero (Banjō GingaJim Piddock), Para-Medic (Houko KuwashimaHeather Halley) and Sigint (Keiji FujiwaraJames C. Mathis III) return as the support crew as they are suspected for treason alongside Snake.

The main antagonist is Gene (Norio WakamotoSteve Blum), the leader of the FOX unit who seeks to establish his own military nation. He is a product of the Successor Project that aimed to artificially create the perfect commander. He is assisted by Lt. Cunningham (Daisuke Gōri, Noah Nelson), an expert in interrogation techniques. (who is later revealed to be a double agent of the Pentagon sent to tarnish the CIA’s reputation) Gene also has an adoptive daughter named Elisa (Saori GotoTara Strong) who is gifted with extraordinary psychic abilities, implied to be the result of exposure to nuclear fallout during the Kyshtym disaster. Elisa suffers from dissociative identity disorder and has a developed a second personality called Ursula’, whose psychic abilities are stronger than her “Elisa” personality. As “Ursula”, she works as a member of FOX, while her “Elisa” personality is a medic who takes care of Null and an informant for Snake. Snake meets Elisa, who initially tells Snake that she and Ursula are twin sisters, only to later learn the truth. Two FOX members previously associated with Snake include Null (Jun FukuyamaLarc Spies), a teenage assassin trained to be the perfect soldier and Python (Yusaku Yara,Dwight Schultz), a former war buddy of Snake who was previously presumed dead during the Vietnam War.

Other appearing characters include Ghost (Naoki TatsutaBrian Cummings), an informant who comes into contact with Snake, revealing the existence of ICBMG, the new Metal Gear prototype, Ocelot (Takumi YamazakiJosh Keaton), a former Spetsnaz Major who assists Gene from behind-the-scenes, EVA, a spy for the PLA who assisted Snake inSnake Eater and Raikov (Ken’yū HoriuchiCharlie Schlatter), a GRU Major, Teliko Friedman (Yūko NagashimaKari Wahlgren), the heroine from Metal Gear Acid, who appears as a hidden character.

Story

In 1970, six years after the events of Snake Eater, Naked Snake’s former team, FOX unit, has broken their allegiance with the CIA and gone rogue. Snake himself is also targeted by the FOX unit, which sent renegade FOX unit soldiers to attack and capture him. The game begins with Snake being tortured and interrogated by one of the members of FOX, Lieutenant Cunningham, who is trying to locate the whereabouts of the missing half of the Philosopher’s Legacy, with the United States Government having already acquired the other half of the Legacy from the Soviet Union at the conclusion of Snake Eater. Snake is imprisoned in a cell next to Roy Campbell, the sole survivor of an American Green Beret team sent in to investigate the base. Snake learns through Roy that they are on the San Hieronymo Peninsula (a Russian transliteration of “San Jerónimo Peninsula”) or “La Península de los Muertos”, the site of an abandoned Soviet missile silo in Colombia.

The two escape and Snake makes his way to a communications base, where he attempts to contact his old COMajor Zero. Instead, he is greeted by his old FOX comrades Para-Medic and Sigint, who reveal that Snake and Zero are being charged for treason and that the only way for Snake to be exonerated from the charges is to find and apprehend the leader of the rebellion, Gene. To complicate matters, Gene has also convinced most of the Russian soldiers stationed at the base to join their side by simply taking over the chain of command belonging to a former Red Army unit, which was secretly stationed inside the Colombian territory. In order to complete his mission, Snake must persuade enemy soldiers to join his ranks due to the scale of his mission.

Snake and his squad defeat the top members of the FOX unit and eventually they make their way into Gene’s guesthouse. Snake learns many things on his way. Cunningham was working for the Pentagon and wanted Snake to push Gene into launching a nuke at Russia to tarnish the CIA’s reputation and to prolong the Cold War. Gene was actually aware of this plan from the beginning due to information from Ocelot. Gene really wanted to launch a nuke at America to destroy the Philosophers and to make his nation of soldiers, “Army’s Heaven”. Snake destroys an experimental model of the ICBMG (the Metal Gear model) codenamed RAXA and eventually defeats Gene, destroying the finished ICBMG model afterward. After Gene is defeated he gives Snake the funds, equipment, personnel, and all other information regarding “Army’s Heaven”. On his return home, Snake is awarded for his actions, he then establishes FOXHOUND afterwards. Elsewhere, Ocelot kills the DCI (Director of Central Intelligence) and takes documents containing the identities of the Philosophers in an effort to “end them”.

In the post-credits epilogue, Ocelot speaks with an unknown man on the phone, they are plotting to use the Legacy to fulfill their own agenda. Ocelot actually wanted the trajectory data of the nuke to point to the DCI, in order to black mail the DCI into giving Ocelot the documents containing the true identities of the Philosophers. Ocelot agrees to join his new employer’s project under the condition that Snake/Big Boss participates as well.”

Overall, I’d rate this game five out of five stars. This game has and excellent plot and is excellently made. I hope you enjoyed this review!
