Ni No Kuni 2 Revenant Kingdom | PS4 Review

*SPOILERS*

PS4 Review

I've been waiting for a surprise late Christmas present from James for a while now he kept making out that it was delayed so I wouldn't clock on to what present he had got me. Then one day whilst he as at work a package arrived he said it was for him so I didn't question it at all when he arrived from work and opened it, called me upstairs and sitting on my desk was the king's edition of Ni No Kuni 2. I was so surprised and overwhelmed because how much it cost I cried a little, yes I know it's sad but I wanted the King Edition so bad but couldn't afford it inside it included:


  • The Ni No Kuni 2 full game
  • The season pass 
  • A steel book case
  • a vinyl record of the Ni No Kuni 2 soundtrack
  • A music box that plays the games theme tune
  • 148-page artbook
  • The Kingmakers: the making of Ni No Kuni 2 blue ray with postcards

Brace yourself, readers, this is going to be a long post! As you know the first Ni No Kuni (Wrath of the White White) is set in Ding Dong Dell so you will be pleased to know that the second game first takes place there, although it's set many years after the first one, when I put the game on I didn't want to sit and compare it to the first as it would get in the way of me trying to enjoy it but some aspects of the game it was hard not to such as the battle system, the first was turn based some may not agree with that but I personally felt it was where as the new one is live action which I felt made the game a less long winded than Wrath of the White Witch, it seems they have changed a few things in order to keep our attention. In Ni No Kuni 2 there is a protagonist by the name of Evan and he is very similar to Oliver from the first which is why I think I liked him so much, he isn't the only Protagonist in the game there is a man named Roland too who you will learn more about as I tell you more about the story.


Outlander Season 1-3 | Review

Amazon Prime
*SPOILERS*

Based on the Novel Series by Diana Gabaldon
Developed by Ronald D. Moore
Oringal network Starz, now on Amazon Prime

I always found Amazon Prime boring compared to Netflix, the thought of having some things for free and then having to pay for others always annoyed me so I was put off watching it for so long, one day I couldn't find anything to watch on Netflix so I browsed Prime and came across Outlander, a show I had seen people raving about for ages but I wasn't sure if I would like it so never bothered to give it a go. Well, that day I was so bored and not feeling too well that I put it on, once the first episode had ended I was hooked, the writing and storyline had me wanting to know more and I ended up finishing the first season far too quickly. I haven't included everything that occurs in each season as I felt I would just highlight some of it from each season, so would appreciate no comments trying to correct me and tell me I missed bits out.

Outlander is about a young Nurse named Claire Randall (maiden name is Beauchamp) her husband and her visit Inverness in 1946, they love their surroundings and take in the Scotish history around them, both are English and very much in love. Whilst staying as guests the woman of this home asks Claire if she would like her to read her palm and Claire agrees, this woman tells Claire she will have two husbands at the same time which blew Claire's mind and it stuck with her for a good long time. One day Claire is taken back in time just by touching the standing stones at Craigh Na Dun because she was wearing a gemstone at the time of touching them she was able to be thrown into 18th century Scotland which was far from 1946 kind of lifestyle. When she appears on the other side she is rescued from the British Redcoats by the Scotish Highlanders who are part of Clan MacKenzie, they take her in and welcome her into their home but make her marry one of the Highlanders called Jamie Fraser. 

What "Nosedive" Black Mirror has taught me.


This isn't a post slagging off social media, especially when I spend half of my life on it anyways instead it's a post about the effect social media has on me that effects my MH and choices I make. You may think that I'm talking a load of crap but bear with me on this matter whilst I explain further, on social media it can be a struggle to get seen and I don't mean this in a craving attention kind of way I mean when it comes to getting traffic to go to your blog or even Instagram, we base our success on what other people think of us or if they like our content which is understandable because if we put out crappy content we won't get that traffic we need. After watching an episode of Black Mirror called Nosedive, it really starting to occur to me how much I care what others think of me on social media and how this changes the way I post across social media. 

The episode I'm talking about is the life of a woman named Lacie living in a world of eye implants (devices that connect to your everyday life) and mobile devices, in this world there is an app people use which shares their everyday life and people rate them on it, most of the shit they share is bullshit and fake, to be honest, Lacie has a rating of 4.2 but wants to reach 4.5 to get a discount on an apartment, you see the higher the rating there more oppitunities you get in life and in order to do this Lacie had to fake it until she made it. Lacie speaks to a consultant who gave her advice on how to raise her rating and suggests that maybe she can get a higher rating with the help of someone else who has a higher rating, Lacie gets thinking and decides to take a picture of Mr. Rags who is a that her and a girl from her childhood made together when they were little.

PS4 Review

*Disclaimer: I was sent the code for this game in return for a review, all opinions are mine and mine alone if you want to know more about my disclaimer please see my contact and disclaimer at the top of my blog. 

I'd never heard of this game before and never had a chance to ever play The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief which was released on PC in 2013 and PS3 in 2014 previously and has now been released for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and MAC, I went in without knowing much about what this game was about except for watching the trailer once. As soon as the game started it was clear this would be an Agatha Cristie type of mystery game, I'm fine with this as I enjoy her mysteries. This is an adventure point and click game, I'm not the biggest fan of them but I got through this game as best as I could.



The game is set in 1964 when an ancient ruby has been stolen from the British Museum, the culprit is thought to be someone copying The Raven who was a legend back in the day who disappeared years before, you play as constable Anton Jakob Zellner who has set out to find out the truth, in the midst of his investigation he finds himself trying to solve a murder mystery. Zellner isn't an actual detective he is, in fact, a Swiss police officer who is far from a detective, Zellner has hardly any detective experience but is a huge fan of detective novels. Zellner has been given the task to guard the matching ruby to the one that was stolen whilst it is being transported to Egypt whilst solving crimes alongside Nicolas Legrand.




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

Playstation 4 review
*SPOILERS*

Publisher:
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.
