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!

 

I DID NOT WRITE THE PLOT OR SETTING. EVERYTHING THAT IS IN QUOTES WAS WRITTEN BY WIKIPEDIA.

Comments & Games

Hey guys! Kevin here! I would just like to say to feel free to post comments asking questions you all have about reviews or games we talk about! Don’t forget, you could also ask us to do certain video games or console reviews if you need help with anything! Even cheat codes or just tips, just ask! Thank you and have a great day!

Nintendogs + Cats

Hey guys! Sorry for the wait! I finally got some time to write a new post. This review will be about “Nintendogs + Cats” for the 3DS. This is a very laid back game where you basically take care of your own virtual dogs and cats! In previous versions, only dogs were available. But in this version, they have cute little cats! There are various activities you can do with your animal, such as bathing, playing, feeding, walking  (Dogs only), and teaching tricks. Care products and toys can be bought at various stores that you can access while taking your dog for a walk. There are so many things to do on this game and it can be entertaining for hours. Overall, I’d rate this game 4.3 out of 5 stars. I hope you liked this review!

Rust

Rust is like Minecraft except, in my opinion, it is a better, more realistic version with real looking people and a not blocky terrain. Like Minecraft, it is a sandbox game. This game is supposed to be based around a time when the world was nuked and irradiated and you have to try and survive.

You can make houses, battle animals such as pigs and bears, kill zombies, explore a big and vast world, and play multiplayer online! This game is even more complex than Minecraft because of all the items and things you can get! You can even make planes!

Something Facepunch Studios didn’t want in this game that happened, was that it is like Day Z because they had zombies added in. They didn’t want zombies yet they still have them for now. When they get the chance, they will change the skin for the zombies to a mutant skin.

What I find interesting about this game is that you can make campfires in this game to prevent yourself from getting too cold. It seems as though you would have a info box on the side of the screen describing how your character is doing and how he is feeling.

You can also make guns in this which I think still needs some work considering they are a bit overpowered and when killing someone, they will get launched into the air, which is pretty hilarious.

Another good thing about this game is that when you make a house, the door to it is protected so that way no one can enter and steal your stuff. Sadly, they can destroy the house’s walls and get in to steal your stuff.

I really like this game and I think if you got it, you would love it. I would rate this game a 5 out of 5. If you want this game, the game is $19.99 on steam at http://store.steampowered.com/app/252490/. Right now is early access so the price might go up later when it official comes out. So go and get the game now!
