What’s new, eh ?


So, yes you are right, I haven’t posted anything for a long while.

Why? Because I bought myself PS4 this Christmas and been playing my favourite games such as Bordelands 2 Handsome Collection, Fallout 4, Doom etc. Been enjoying my time and this will also help me out bring you guys better news on new games, games I played and my thoughts on them and so on. Isn’t that great? I know more and more people do that, you know doing gameplay, reviews, and their thouths and opinions of new and old games. But that won’t stop me doing that too. Because I love playing games and always did. I remember that first game which was Need For Speed one followed by other old school titles that you can find in the Games section.

I would like to show you folks what I have been playing so far on my new console.

This was my first epic shooter with giant bosses and frenzy action set up in ancient Egypt.

It was ridiculous! Endless waves of various enemies charging at you left and right. I love the atmosphere of the levels. It felt as though you would be fighting some old Egyptian demons and the weapons were all great and powerful, they just felt right for the game you know. And that was just my feeling of the game because I was very young back then playing this title and couldn’t comprehend nor understand English language. Now I would like to dip into the story of Serious Sam and believe me it’s not that serious but it’s good.

Earth’s forces are steadily defeated planet-by-planet, from Alpha Centauri back to their own solar system. Serious Sam becomes a living legend due to his bravery during the battles. But no matter how bravely the human armies fight they are defeated again and again.

Now the earth is under direct attack and humankind stares into the face of its own annihilation. World leaders must now turn their hopes to their last chance, an ancient artifact called out the ‘Time – Lock’. A relic from a long-forgotten race, with the power to teleport one single person back in time.

The choice of whom to send back is obvious ……it’s you Serious Sam! It’s you!

Half – Life

One of the best linear story driven single player shooter of all times.

I remember playing the game when I was a teenager and couldn’t understand English at all.  I fired up Half – Life on my old PC and begun exploring  Black Mesa facility which is located somewhere in New Mexico.

I didn’t read the whole lore or any other side stories when I first started playing, instead I was roleplaying in my own way according to my own observations and believes. Knowing Gordon Freeman is a scientist just going to work in an ordinary fashion meeting colleagues, uttering few words here and there I was like wow this is awesome first game that has  a proper introduction where you can explore a little bit of Black Messa even before the main event kicks in. Then you actually go and participate in an experiment that merges two dimensions together, pushing a trolley with yellow crystal atop into some kind of device. Explosion, confusion, yellow lightning storm going on, your fellow scientists screaming and trying to hide, run away. This catastrophe comes into play after 10 – 15 minutes of foreplay that sees you familiarizing with the environment and the facility. Remember, this first episode of Half – Life was published in 1998 introducing new style of playing, graphics and basically established new standards for first person shooters. And the atmosphere partly horror partly survival then switches into fast pace action….awesome experience. The pace of the whole game is generally smooth. Boring at times especially when it comes down to puzzles.

So after the accident Gordon Freeman which is you,  the main protagonist tries to get to the surface in order to call for help. But there are aliens pouring through the portal from another dimension (dimension called out Xen) everywhere. You fight your way trough the mess encountering security guards desperately firing all they have to kill the aliens (not always successful). On your journey you also encounter one of the mysterious antagonists named  G-Man. As you progress further you come across army unit called Hazardous Environment Unit which is a special forces task force from Marine Corps. At first you think they could help you out but one of the soldiers kills an innocent scientist which you see from distance so then you resolve not to contact them. And of course you are force to fight them, then later on you learn that they are there to not only kill the alien life form but also everyone within the Black Messa facility.

Now I will stop here and encourage you to play this gem that meant so much for the gaming scene.
