Rain | PS3 Review

Rain the video game

Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment
Developer:  SCE Japan Studio
PS3 Review

James and I were browsing Playstation Now the other day and came across a game called Rain, it was the one game that stood out to me more so than most of the others and it was a lot cheaper to buy on its own than get the PlayStation Now monthly subscription, the game was less than £3 which was heap for a game, although it was on sale in the PlayStation store, this game is exclusive to PlayStation and only available on PS3, I still have mine and play it whenever I can. Before I played Rain I read up on it a little so I could get the gist of what it was about I found out that not only is it a book it's also not as old as I thought it was, it was released in 2013 and was only released as disc version was limited to Japan so the only other way to get the game was to digitally download it, it's a shame because I would have loved to of owned the disc version as I enjoyed it so much.

Whenever I told people I was playing this they all thought I meant Heavy Rain that's how unheard of this game is but I'm so glad I found it as it's a lovely little adventure game. Rain starts off with a little boy in bed, its an illustrated scene, I get the impression that he is ill, he comes away from his physical form and turns into what I believe is his spirit in order to help a little girl being chased by creatures called the Unknown. The game takes place in Paris which is easy to tell due to a lot of the graffiti on the walls being in French, whilst following the little girl through the town he comes across an alleyway and day quickly becomes night. H eloses sight of her a number of times and she is always a little distance away from him that is until she finally notices the boy and just before they can reach each other the girl is chased away from a monster, when they finally meet the gil takes the boy to her house, there laying in front of them is the little girl in her physical form, the girl tries her best to wake herself and before she can an unknown burst through the window chasing after the girl who has slowly started to take on her physical form from trying to wake herself, as this was distrupted she quickly turned back into a spirit, you could tell she must have been poorly like the little boy and that's why she has taken on a spirit form. The boy chases after them and the world in which he was in has changed, it was once a simple looking town but now it's turned into a big maze which he had to make his way through in order to get to the girl.

Bioshock Infinite | PS4 Bioshock The Collection Review


2K Games
Developer: Irrational Games
PS4 Review

I'm a huge fan of the Bioshock games, the first one will always be my favourite and recently since properly giving Bioshock Infinite (also known as the 3rd game) it comes in second place for me. The reason I didn't really want to give it a chance was because it wasn't set underwater where rapture in the first game took place, but silly old me should have looked into the game more because it's set years before the first Bioshock and explains the events that lead up to the rapture taking place. When it first came out I wasn't exactly good at games and not keen on how this one looked so I was ignorant towards which I wish I never did look back on it now. For those of you who are in the same mindset as me, you will come to find that Big Daddy is in fact in the DLC's for this game which was a great little surprise for me as I love the Big Daddies even though they scared me at times.

The game starts off with you in a boat playing the role of a man called Booker DeWitt, it's the year 1912 and you're in a boat with the Lutece twins who you will be seeing a lot throughout the game. They are rowing you to a lighthouse which is off the coast of Maine, DeWitt who you play as has taken on a mission, he must retrieve a girl in order to wipe away his debt, what did he have to lose?Once inside the lighthouse, DeWitt is transported to Columbia to search for the girl, whilst doing so someone realised that the AD burned into his hand is the sign of the false Shepard, what this meant was the prophecy that Comstock came up with would be coming true, he believed that the false shepherd would corrupt Elizabeth which would destroy Columbia. I will explain more further down about who exactly Comstock is and why he is so important in this game. But for now we will talk about Elizabeth, she is the girl that DeWitt must retrieve in order to wipe his debts, but in doing so he is faced with a lot of problems and people/a monster) who want to keep her for themselves but DeWitt is determined to get Elizabeth to Comstock in order to wipe his debts which will come with a shocking revelation for him. 

Happy Death Day | Review


Directed: Christopher B. Landon
Produced by: Jason Blum
Written: Scott Lobdell
Released: October 17, 2017

At first Happy Death Day looks like your typical cheesy college movie but as you get further into the movie you realise it's a little more than that. The film starts with the bells ringing at Bayfield University where our main character Teresa (Tree) Gelbman attends, she wakes up hung over in a random boys bed on the day of her birthday, she quickly gets ready to leave whilst asking the boy whose room it if she can have some Tylenol whilst ignoring a phone call from her father who wanted to remind her that today is their anual meal to celebrate her and her mums birthday as they are both on the same day, Tree had grown uncomforable with doing this since her mum had passed away but didn't have the guts to let her dad know. You will be seeing this scene a number of times throughout the course of the movie so buckle in and get ready for another movie just like groundhog day. Throughout the course of the movie we see Teresa repeat the same route but she tries to change it slightly in order to work out what is going on and find out who keeps trying to kill her, heads up it's not the boy whose bed she slept in (Carter) it's not as simple as that.

Online Abuse and How I Dealt With it.

I have suffered online abuse from a variety of people before, given I have spoken back and tried to stick up for myself which in my opinion I shouldn't have to do. Back when I had my first twitch account I made friends with some streamers one was being horrid and I said I bet your mum would be proud of you today in a very sarcastic manner as unfortunately his mum did pass but before we even knew each other. Now that does not excuse for his behaviour but by responding with something so harsh it made things worse for myself and I know I shouldn't have said what I did because it's not a nice thing to hear and ignoring would have been the better option. Sometimes people push you though they know how to upset you so things we respond with can be a normal reaction. What I said wasn't too bad but it made me leave both twitch and Twitter as this person created fake accounts to send me abuse. Not just me but my family and ex-partner too, things could have been sorted much more easily by talking but they didn't want to. They stopped in the end which I was grateful for and know now to never even breathe those words to a person because it can hurt them in a way that no other who has lost a parent would know and I'm very sorry I even said it.

A different kind of abuse experienced online is when I turned down someone advances towards me, he was one of my friends mates and because she wasn't interested he wouldn't leave me alone. When I turned him down he sent me tweets about how he would shoot my ex-fiance with one of his guns and make me watch, he sent messages to my ex saying he would rape me. In the end, he was told we would take it further if he carried on and because he wanted to join the military (he was American) he stopped. Then more so I got abuse via other people sent to me by a ringleader, this is when I said enough of was enough I had people saying my chronic illness wasn't real, my friends sent me screenshots from the persons YT where one of their friends threatened violence against me and then this same person liked my FB page and commented. I recognised the name straight away and banned them from my page as well as blocking them via my profile. I also found out people who I had blocked could still message my FB page so any message I received I would ban that person from my page so they couldn't send any more.

Review | Spektrum Prospek Blue light Filter Glasses*

Disclaimer: This product was sent to me for free in exchange for a review, all opinions are my own for more info please check out my contact & disclaimer. I'm not a doctor nor do I claim to be, all my thoughts within this post are mine and mine alone, If you are having persistent problems with your eyes or headaches please see a medical professional.

I was kindly asked if I wanted to review a pair of *Spektrum Prospek Blue Filter Glasses, I was able to choose the ones I liked best. Before I did choose I showed Sarah and we both agreed on the same two pairs but out of the two I ended up going for the Artist glasses. I did a blog post the other week on blue light and what it was exactly so here is a little recap for you all "Blue light is a colour that is part of the visible light spectrum seen by the human eye which can be dangerous, light is made up of these things callled electromagnetic particles which travel in waves, these are waves are what emit energy and each have a range of strength and length, the shorter one of these wavelengths are the higher in energy, blue light has a short wave length which means that produces a higher amount of energy and the more exposore you have to blue light the more at risk you are to damage to your eyes" To read more about blue light click here. (Natural blue light is ok, so not all blue light is bad).

I spend a lot of time in front of screens mostly my phone and it's not healthy especially for your eyes but as a blogger and gamer it can be hard to avoid how much time I spend in front of a screen and the amount of blue  light I'm looking at, that's where Spektrum Prospek glasses come into this they come in different types, to block out 50% of blue light or 99% of blue light, mine block out 50% so they arent as strong as the others you can purchase such as the Elite glasses and clip on which are 99% strength and are for people who are very sensitive to blue light. The glasses Spektrum sell that block out 50% of blue light are for those who use them during the day as blue light has less of an effect on your eyes this time of day rather than an evening when it's stronger, these glasses look like a normal pair of prescription glasses as you can see below with me wearing them.

How I Clean my Gamepads.

There are things people never think to keep clean arent always the most obvious items since James handed me his old gamepads to try and clean I have tried a number of ways to get the dirt off of them. Most people think they don't need to clean their gamepads if they don't eat whilst using them but they can still get extremely dirty and harvest bacteria just like a keyboard would. I asked on twitter once the best way to clean controllers and had a mixed lot of answers so went out of my way to find my own answers. Gamepads come in different colours they do tend to fade over time so you want to use something that won't destroy them but clean them well at the same time.

Given James and I are the only ones who use the controllers in this house but we still need to keep them clean, we wash our hands after all so why shouldn't we make sure other things we use with our hands are clean. I have a number of different gamepads I use which are mostly all blue as is my favourite colour, lucky for me they haven't faded but they do need a good clean which I did with both my blue PS4 and black PS4 gamepad today. So for this, you will need:

  • Rubbing Alcohol (or Hydrogen Peroxide)
  • Cotton Buds
  • Toothpick
  • Empty spray bottle
  • Dusting cloth
  • Microfibre cloth
  • Baby wipes
