Forza Horizon 2 Review

Forza Horizon 2 is an enjoyable game just like most racing games these days like Need for Speed and the new title The Crew.  Now I have not played The Crew yet so I can not say it is like most racing games, but Forza H2 is unfortunately.

Don’t get me wrong it is still a wonderful game to play alone or with friends! Their are driving trips called road trips and it allows you and your friends to go for a nice drive across the country of France and Italy and a few places around and in between for DLC.

What I mean by Forza H2 being just like any racing game is the challenges to go for and the story line, and of course how much can you really stretch out with a racing game before you take away a good chunk of the racing! Well they have done it! But wait you may say I am now contradicting my self, but no. Because even though they have the same challenges their is a huge variety of cars and classes to choose from along with the classic tuning and customizing every Forza is known for.

Not only is the customization is what is an amazing part of this game, but also the open world! It is a huge place honestly. Bigger than I expected (that’s what she said) and is practically a free roaming area besides buildings and some fences.

Here is a real-life example of what is in the game:

Overall It is a great game and has a decent story being that it has you switch your class every time you win that championship. And again the huge load of choices to choose in cars, tuning and body work.

8/10

Xbox Live and PSN Down Due to Hacker Squad

lz

So both Xbox Live and PSN have been knocked down this Christmas morning on 12/25/14. The group responsible for this or taking the blame for is called the “Lizard Squad”. They have a small request in order for them to stop their shenanigans, just to retweet their tweets or follow some of their friends. No one has yet to followup their request to have a certain amount of retweets or followers.

As for Microsoft and Sony explaining the issue to their consumers, they haven’t said a thing stating it was this “Lizard Squad”. They do have their Online Status up and available to watch when it is fixed. But seeing it has taken almost the entire day, who knows how long it will go for.

If you want to follow or check out this “Lizard Squad” go here.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection Review

 

Now that all or most of the bugs in the Halo: MCC have been patched or going to be patched have been done, I would say this game has had massive improvements!

Now this is the first time all four Master Chief Halo games have been on one disc and it is spectacular. There are multiple options to play these 4 games and in any order you want as well. Also each game has forge options and each has their own options within Forge, except Halo; CE. As well as Matchmaking of course.

For Matchmaking, when the game first came out they had a huge choice selection of Playlist to play in. Unfortunately they have taken a few of them down, but have been adding them back slowly but surely. Currently there are these Playlist:

Team Halo 2: Anniversary (Ranked)

Halo Championship Series ( Halo 2A)

Team Slayer (Halo 1-3)

Big Team Battle (Halo 1-4)

Halo 2 classic

Halo 3

SWAT (Halo 2/A & 4)

One of the new things for the Halo games in the Halo: MCC is the Halo 2: Anniversary addition. It comes with a total of 6 remade maps from the original Halo 2. Warlord (Warlock remake), Lockdown (Lockout remake), Zenith (Ascension remake), Shrine (Sanctuary remake), Stonetown (Zanzibar remake) and Bloodline (Coagulation remake). All are beautiful and the maps that do happen to have mongooses like Bloodline and Stonetown, there are Gungoose’s.

The Gungoose is basically a mongoose with two turrets attached to it. The difficulty of using these guns is moderately difficult, it does take some skill to use this vehicle with its guns.

Now the Terminals in this game are of course still there and some new ones for Halo: CEA and some for Halo 2. Most of the Terminals are shown on the third party app Halo Channel which is the new Halo News Hub for all Halo content to be published from 343i or through 343i. There are also skulls in the games as well to be found and collected for Gamer Score points.

For playing the campaign there are Playlist for them as well, like being able to play on the missions that involve Master Chief or the Arbiter, Boss missions, Vehicle missions and more.

As for customization in the game, there is a plethora of nameplates to choose from and they each are unlocked by playing the game and achieving or discovering things within the game. For armor customization, not much is given just the regular color choices and only full suits of armor, no more being able to wear different pieces and having a mix of chest, arms, helmet and such. For emblems they are all there plus some new ones to be achieved and unlocked.

Over all I would say this game, even though had its rough beginning, has made it to where it needs to be in a good amount of time. If you have a Xbox One, this is one game you should grab, especially if you have never played any of them, all fours games for the price of one and a huge multitude of other extras. So I give it a 9 out of 10 just because they did happen to take a little bit of their sweet time to fix some issues, with out enough info to the public of their plans.

9/10

Final Flight: Space Escape, Debut!

So this game has been the making for a while now, just kidding not that long. But it was made by a friend of mine as one of his school final projects. So far so good, it is some what difficult but a good challenge nevertheless! I gave it a 5.5/10 for being good without bugs, free and also since it is not a new idea, sorry Kevin but you did get the average score! Check it out here!

Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Updates and More Info

Been wondering what the updates contain for the new Halo: MCC? Well look no further because 343i does have info on their patch notes for these, 343i Halo Blog, this link will take you to all info regarding the Halo: MCC.

Overall it has had a drastic improvement since day one release. When the game first launched their were multiple problems with its Match Making progress as well as almost everything in the game had something wrong. Including problems with campaign, achievements, settings and other stuff. Some people had a bucket full of issues while others only had a few (like me, thank god). But so far with all the updates it has been working out and getting better and better.

Current Playlist:

Team Halo 2: Anniversary (Ranked)

Halo Championship Series ( Halo 2A)

Team Slayer (Halo 1-3)

Big Team Battle (Halo 1-4)

Halo 2 classic

Halo 3

SWAT (Halo 2/A & 4)
