Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

Naughty Dog brings another PS4 exclusive named Uncharted 4. The game absolutely stands alongside previous entries in the series and Uncharted fans won’t be disappointed. The game is especially made for PS4. Uncharted 4 kicks off with Sam Drake, the long-lost brother of Nathan. Nathan Drake returning to his roots and exploring exactly what it means to be forced back into the world of thieves

 Uncharted 4 was released for PS4 on May 10, 2016. Since its debut in 2007, the Uncharted series has put a huge impact on  the globe, following Nathan Drake from South America to Tibet. you really start to feel the breadth of the landscapes during the fights. With the new rope tool, you can swing into battles, swing away from battles, even shoot while swinging. While the game remains linear, it feels anything but as you battle through it. Another new addition is the stealth feature. Using tall grass, brush and other coverings, you can now sneak up on enemies and systematically clear an area. While this feature is a bit limited, it provides a nice change of pace for a series that has treated fights the same way for too long.

 

Multiplayer comes back with a new style too, which is both a good and bad thing. This series was never counted for multiplayer but to make pace with the running gaming world they have taken multiplayer gameplay on their mind.

 I was one of the luckiest person indeed to play the game as most of us is our PC gamers, so buying a Play Station for playing this game is not a worthy decision. Though I felt uncomfortable at first but the graphics and the game-play made me to say this is one of the best game I have ever played. So shout out to the developers for making such a great games. Eagerly waiting for playing the next one.

Counter Strike – the all time favorite FPS.

“B site bomber! A Long magger! Mid Rush! As camp! bla bla bla”. Heard this shouts? Well a group of people must be around playing CS! One of the most played Online/LAN game has really been a love for PC Gamers. Even after having modern ultimate high graphical games, this old FPS remains a classic.

Counter-Strike (officially abbreviated as CS) is a series of multiplayer first-person shooter video games, in which teams of terrorists and counter-terrorists battle to, respectively, perpetrate an act of terror (bombing, hostage-taking) and prevent it (bomb defusal, hostage rescue).

The series began on Windows in 1999 with the first version of Counter-Strike. It was initially released as a modification for Half-Life and designed by Minh “Gooseman” Le and Jess “Cliffe” Cliffe, before the rights to the game’s intellectual property were acquired by Valve Corporation, the developers of Half-Life.

The game was followed-up with Counter-Strike: Condition Zero, developed by Turtle Rock Studios and released in 2004. Later that same year, Counter-Strike: Source was released by Valve. Released only eight months after Counter-Strike: Condition Zero, in November 2004, the game was a remake of the original Counter-Strike and the first in the series to run on Valve’s newly created Source engine.The fourth game in the main series to have been developed by Valve, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, was released in 2012 for Windows, OS X, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.

So if by any chance you havn’t tried this one then “Go. Go. Go” because “The bomb has been planted”.

Battlefield franchise is famous for their multiplayer game-play comparatively with COD and CS:GO. Although you have to buy the original game in order to play multiplayer, recently CPY has released Battlefield 1 crack. It was EA first who made a deal with Denuvo to protect their game from being cracked. But now a days CPY cracked all the latest Denuvo based games. Coming to the game-play, following to the earlier version EA made the realistic single player session the have ever made. That’s the good news for legit gamers.

Dota 2 7.00

Alright fans.!!

Dota 2 7.00 is finally here, and whats so amazing is that after 7.00 they had to fix a lot of exceptions and bugs in the game that they had to lauch another 7.01 update for the game.

Dota 2 7.00 always known as Dota 7.00 or what many people have termed as Dota 3, is one of the most talked topics in the gaming world!

The Million Dollar question stands here is the success of the this new update, as this time Valve decides to bring not only hell lot of changes in the game but also included a new hero ‘Monkey King’

The changes made in this update are:
1.) A new hero is included – Monkey King
2.) New HUD
3.) New Pre-Game
4.) New Game-Play
5.) Many heroes are remodeled
6.) The Map is changed

Well honestly, a lot of people are admiring this new change, but a lot of pro-gamers didn’t like the update at all, not just because they were too comfortable with the previous version, but because in the newer version the difference between supportive heroes (those who help in fighting the battles) and carry heroes (those who actually fight battles) has drastically reduced.

Obviously, the update should have been well planned then it actually was, as there were lots of bugs.

One of the amazing things the developers brought is the backpack system, in which players can keep extra items in a side pocket called back along with their inventory, though the item is unusable unless it is shifted back to inventory. It is very useful as players don’t have to keep calling their couriers in between team fights, neither do they need to leave the battlefield to collect any items.

Another interesting feature includes the ‘Talent Tree’. This feature is a replacement for the ‘attributes’ and in this each player at certain level ups have to choose between two upgrades in the talent of their respective heroes. Each match has its own uniqueness and along with it comes the different requirements. With the help of Talent tree feature, players can now fulfil these requirements more easily and because of it players don’t need to buy items all the time for their in-game requirements.

One of the most hated change brought in, is the new map. The new map is a nightmare for supportive heroes as not only the size of the map is increased but also the ganking spots, and higher grounds used for ganking and evasion is increased. This makes life of supportive player a living hell as they now need to ward places(i.e. provide vision at sensitive spots in the map), along with keeping the maximum no of wards available, ward duration, and ward range unchanged.

When talking about Dota 2 7.00 how can one forget the most important feature, the new hero, Monkey King! This new hero is master of disguise, can transform into his surroundings, not giving slightest clue to his enemies. He can climb trees and initiate a battle by just standing on trees, he can even jump into battlefield if he wants to. He can stun his enemies along with hitting them with a critical strike. And last but not the least, if he strikes any enemy for consecutive times, he gains lifesteal and bonus attack speed (lifesteal- a health is regenerated based on a percentage of total damage done). This makes him a very dangerous opponent to counter, but pro players happen to easily counter him. For even newbies, he is not a great threat as not a lot of people know hot to play this hero perfectly. Players across the globe are loving the Monkey King, as he is the most picked hero ever since the update came in.

Noodles! Review : a puzzle game

Noodles!  is the kind of game that can completely baffle us for minutes at a time. And, then one second later, the entire puzzle reveals itself. It’s never easy but the overwhelming sense of accomplishment we get when we solve a puzzle makes it all worth it.

img_1359                 img_1356                   img_1360

Concept

The concept of the game is quite simple. All the pipes have to be joined in a way that no open ends remain. The pipes join in multiple ways, making it difficult to determine its exact position.

Design

The game follows the minimalist ideology of simple lines, very few colors (only two per screen) and a flat look. There is no music, but each time you rotate a pipe, a chime plays. If you rotate the same pipe more than once, it will chime different notes.

Game play

img_1361                                             img_1362

The game has different playing options like the 5×5, 7×7, 7×10 and 8×8 with either rotating pipes or tiles. The goal of the game is to connect all the pipes together. It is easy with the 5×5 tiles but then gets difficult and challenging when there are a dozen of interlocking pieces.

The pipes have pieces that are open-ended and need to be joined with the t-pieces or close-ended pieces to complete the puzzle. Even curved pieces are present to join the pieces. All of these pipe pieces need to be used to finish the puzzle.

The tile-based game is made up of a grid with hexagons (the developers want us to know that no heptagons were ever used in this game because heptagons suck). Similar to the pipes, these tiles are rotated whenever you tap them. Tiles can have multiple connectors and some are end caps. The main difference between the two puzzles is that the tiles have more rotation options than the pipes.

The Good

This game tantalizes my senses. It challenges the brain because when I think I have nailed it, one of the pipes remains unconnected.

The Bad

The only problem with this game is, there are no hints available. Once stuck it takes a lot of time solving the puzzle.

The Value

The game costs Rupees 120 but is worth the value as there are no in-app purchases and comes ad free.

Conclusion

Personally one of my favorite game in recent times. If you like games like Pipe Mania then Noodles! surely entice you. It is available for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch.
