Today I finally got to play magicka for the first time since my computer exploded in May! I forgot how much I missed the game!
While league has great points about it, such as choosing a character that suits your gaming style, I love magicka’s storyline and general querky nature. I love all the bable, silly quotes and things from modern culture! But most of all I love the fact it depends on you and your friends, and not relying on strangers who sometimes troll.
Last time I played league, the whole game consisted of two players on our team trolling the whole game by purposefully getting killed by the other team. The game quickly was not fun, but 30 minutes of stress and frustration.
Magicka just involved me and purpose, high diving, giggling and being able to stop when we wanted.
Can’t wait to play some more now!
I love minecraft, yet I am terrible at it, so as long as you don’t do the mistakes I often do, you will be fine.
So here is my tips on how to play this wonderful game as a noob.
- Don’t squeal like a girl and panic
I squeal; I sqeak; I panic; I run into walls. Panic makes you do silly things, and giving your other half an ear ache is not going to help when you rely on them to tell you what that green thing is running towards you, or remind you not to look into the purple eyes. If you are of a jumpy nature, try to make sure you always have a good and easy get out plan and not a narrow ledge that you make you fall further into a pit of darkness or off a cliff to your death.
- Dont get stuck out of stupidity
After opening a new world I could not find coal. While this may not seem a big deal, it is as you can make torches. That made it difficult, but I got stuck in a hill when the sun went down as I dug into a hill kept digging with no light and now can not get out. I have since had to start a new account.So stuck without torches? Quickly make a door then you can see something so you know where the exit is and when to get out! With only the need of wood to make it as well, it is very easy to make, especially as a noob!
- Don’t use wooden picks
It is great when you start using a pick, and the wooden ones are great for starting out with nothing, but as soon as you have used the wooden pick to get some cobblestone, make cobblestone picks. If you stick with a wooden one and find that little bit of coal in the area, you won’t get the coal that you vitally need, but a hole where it once was! The same is for iron, gold and diamond; you need to right pick to mine then, whether iron, gold or diamond.
- Remember to sleep
What I didn’t realise was that by sleeping you save your location, so a house with a bed and emergency supply of items in a chest is a great way to not go back to square one. It also means you get to miss the scary evenings with the scary monsters that make terrifying noises!
- When you see a creeper, green walking thing, RUN as they explode!
The best advice I can give is to run from these scary things, as they explode and leave a lovely crater when they explode in the morning sun! Try not to take them on or you’ll end up back with nothing again, or scream and give the bf a headache…
- Have fun!
Minecraft is a great game, where you can explore towns, caves dungeons and build great buildings, homes and memories. Enjoy it and when your not enjoying it any more, try a new world or play with someone else!
I hope you have enjoyed my Minecraft how to play as noob. Hopefully I will have more for you soon!
For the last two days I have become addicted to Bejeweled Blitz.
It is dangerous the amount of time the game takes up! But why is this game so addictive?
1. Simple game
The game is just moving blocks or “jewels” around to make 4’s or more; that’s it! Simple game means you can play it and not have to know facts or figures. Just simple fun
2. “I can do better than that”
With games like bejeweled, there is a score board, where you can then see how well or bad your doing. But more deadly is the plain fact it is just scored. Why is that deadly? Because you can’t help but think after 99% of games “I could do better than that if I just had one more go…”
Funny how the one more games turns into 20!
3. How randomly you can suddenly do well
This game is random sometimes and you can just be plain lucky and suddenly do well. Well curosity sneaks in and you just want to see if it was plain luck or you have suddenly have gotten better at this game
4. It suddenly goes nuts and everything blows up
I like crazy things blowing up turning colours and suddenly having a new screen of coloured blocks to play with
and finally 5. You can get coins to get cool stuff
I am not ashamed, but I love the crazy things you can get with the coins you slowly earn. You can then make the simple game more suited to you or just different enough to keep you interested, waiting for the next one to come along!
I just love the fact its an ex-pro gamer who got me into the game!
