Trying for a taste of role playing

Another night visiting my friends, another night of a game.

This time it was the role playing game hunters. Again midway through a game, with characters all worked out and developed. These are real role playing veterans I am playing with as well how have played together for years.

They know the games but also how each other play.

Taking on the role of Jess for an hour was not as packed full of adventure as it sounds as most of that hour was explaining to me what my character was, backstory and finally where we were in the story.

I wish we had been able to play longer so I could get more of a taste for the game however after food and putting the little one to bed, there was little evening left!

So hopefully one day I will get to try again, though I think I might find some other n00bs to play with first…

New League of Legend character Lulu!

(EDIT: if you want to know what she is like check out my other post at http://wp.me/p1GLvl-4L )

WEEEEEEELLLLLLLL NOOOOOWWWWW! In the words of the great singer “lulu”, this character does make me want to shout, and giggle and squeal!

The new character (also called Lulu) is a cute mini blue sorceress with a little faerie called Pix

Not only is this character so cute, but she at last is a support character! There are few true support characters in the Riot made game, and there has been even fewer released lately. But the reason I am looking forward to having a go with this character is the Whimsy spell which apparently in terms of actually playing is good, as it stops enermies being able to cast spells or attack. For me however it is the fact that they get turned into a cute critter!!!

I can’t wait to see what happens and playing support is my favourite thing to do! I think this is the most exciting news ever! But I am sure with the cute factor and this cool new support being available, that getting the chance to actually pick her is going to be very hard at first!

If you want to know more about her, check out the post on the league of legend website here.

I’m still scared of creepers

I am ashamed to say it, but creepers still scare the life out of me when I play minecraft.

I can’t help it, but the fact that they blow up, make a hissing noise and chase me is enough to have me wanting to hide!

It makes the game exciting but I am still terrified of them. Even playing the sound when I wasn’t playing the game puts the fear in me!

I will just have to be brave… and actually fight one one day!

So does it scare you too?

Oh magicka how I missed you!

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!

How to play Minecraft as a noob

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
  5. 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…
  6. 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!

La noire – game review

I love the 20’s-40’s; the design styles and music are incredible. When LA noire came out all of my friends could do nothing but recommend this game for me. What’s more, the whole game being an epic story made up of cases, each with their own stories, its my kind of game.

This is not a shooter game, with more focus on investigation than violence.

The witty remarks from characters, how the smaller storylines change depending on what evidence you find or questions you ask is great. I can’t help but be hooked to the game.

If you like games that aren’t just about reckless shooting or driving, bit has real depth, this is the game for you. But a hint, if you have evidence then say lie, if not doubt! That’s all I’m saying!

Now back to playing! Just solved the lipstick murder!

Becareful of the bejeweled

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!
