*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

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

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

*WARNING SPOILERS*


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.
