‘OCULUS’ Movie Review with Exclusive Interview

ocu

Cast: Karen Gillan, Brenton Thwaites, Katee Sackhoff, Rory Cochrane, Annalise Basso, Garret Ryan

Director: Mike Flanagan

Official Film Synopsis: “Ten years ago Tim Russell (Brenton Thwaites) shot his father (Rory Cochrane) after he witnessed him killing his mother (Katee Sackhoff). He’s sent to a mental hospital because of the shooting but also because he believed that his parents’ deaths were due to an evil supernatural entity that possessed an antique mirror in their home. This leaves his sister Kaylie (Karen Gillan) to face life alone until, years later, Tim is finally released. All he wants to do is move on from that fateful night, but in his absence Kaylie has become convinced that the mirror is indeed possessed, as she has discovered that the mirror’s previous owners throughout the centuries have had similarly bloody pasts. Kaylie is determined to prove that the mirror is responsible for the murders as opposed to Tim or her father.”

LUFTRAUSERS Review

LUFTRAUSERS is an arcade-style game made by Vlambeer that’s just one big dog fight. The game format is very simple but very fun. You start off with three objectives and a basic plane; you complete these objectives to level-up and gain more parts to your plane. The upgrading system is a lot of fun to play around with. You have three types of parts you can upgrade and about 125 customizable parts in all.

Deck of the Week: Dark World

I’m not very experienced with Dark World decks and now I know why. I don’t like how the dark worlds work. From what I experienced it’s all about luck the entire duel. Some might say “Isn’t Yugioh always about luck?” well not necessarily; you can have a deck so well built that every single time you draw you will get a good hand. For example, my fairy deck is so well packed together that I will always have a good hand.

Deck of the Week: Green Goblins

Someone from Dueling Network.com wanted me to try out his goblin deck that he named “Green Goblins” because he loves Spider-Man. I loved the deck because of its name but also loved it for how it played. It didn’t really over power the opponent but mainly tricked the opponent with the effect.

The effects of these cards allowed me to let a lot of my monster die but only to kill my opponents monster or be special summoned later. Even though I said this deck didn’t really over power my opponent a lot I  could with equip spells. Because I can special summon a lot of times once a turn the card “United We Stand” could make a level 3 monster with 500 attack have 3000 attack easily.

Deck of the Week: Spellbooks

Spellbook decks contain Spellcaster-type monsters with mainly Spellbook spell cards. To make a good Spellbook deck you need a lot of options in getting a Spellbook spell card from your grave or deck to your hand. There are some Spellcaster-type monsters you need to make this deck complete like Spellbook Magician of Prophecy, Temperance of Prophecy, and some others. I’ve always loved the Spellcaster-type monsters since I started Yugioh so I enjoyed making this deck.

Deck of the Week Special: Teamed Decks – Noble Samurai

I wasn’t able to do Deck of the Week last week so I thought this was a great time to do something new. This is Six Samurai and Noble Knights working together and I have to say it’s a pretty good deck. The main reason I wanted to test this combo was because of the rapid summoning of Six Samurai and the Noble Arms cards of the Noble Knights.

This deck is actually very powerful. The Six Samurai work together very well with the Noble Arms equip spell cards. I didn’t have to use XYZ cards that much because the boosts that the Noble Arms gave were plenty to make this deck very strong.

Chrono Trigger- A Great RPG

chrono-trigger-ds-20081120033316653Chrono Trigger is an immense RPG filled with plenty of fun quests. The great thing about this game is it is a pretty rare game and is also from the makers who created Final Fantasy and Dragon quest ( you will see similarities between them).

Chrono Trigger is reminiscent of the classic Final Fantasy 1 on the GBA, it follows the same system in battle and also the way the world is set out. The main premise of the story is: Chrono is the main guy of the game and he encounters people on the way who join him in fighting terrible monsters which  lurk in the land!

Deck of the Week: Six Samurai

Well, I can honestly say that I hate versing this deck. I was trying to avoid the Six Samurai but I had to try them out eventually. But playing with this deck isn’t that bad but the special summoning is insane. I found myself dominating the duel more often if I would just take a second to plan things out. Normally I can get a deck and just jump into the duel but not this one.

Share

Deck of the Week: Noble Knights

 

This deck is very rare on the Dueling Network website and I don’t know why. Noble Knights are very interesting to play with because they are based on Warrior-type monsters and Equip cards. Believe it or not but this deck only had 2 traps in it.

I thought this deck was extremely cool because I love Knights, swords, medieval, etc. Noble Knights as of monsters focus on getting one of the three ‘Noble Arms’ equip spells. The Noble Arms spells mainly focus on either increasing a monsters attack or getting more Noble Knights from the deck to your hand.

Contagion: Open Beta Review

This game is a Early access zombie game made by  Monochrome LLC who are also known for making the HL2 Free-To-Play mod Zombie Panic Source. Like Zombie Panic Source, this game is a HL2 mod. There are only two modes so far; Player vs Player and Extraction.

Player vs Player is my personal favorite and most liked to the community that I talked to in-game. Player vs Player or PvP starts out with 6 survivors spawning at random locations with a one random melee weapon and one random pistol with one clip in it. Then survivors have to look threw houses for weapons and ammo.

Deck of the Week: Psycho Psychics

This deck is focused on Psychic-type monsters and you mainly try to get monsters to the banished for later special summons. Psychics also are good healers like Magical Android and Psychic Lifetrancer.

The Psychics destroyed many decks like Fairy Decks, Dragon Decks, and Zombie/Vampire Decks BUT the Gravekeepers completely destroyed the Psychics. The constant summoning from the graveyard and the banished zone is what makes this deck strong so when you take that away such as; Gravekeepers, you can’t do anything.

Yugioh Wave 2 Tin Reviews

img_7797

What’s up guys I have an awesome review for you today. My friends from Konami sent over the Tempest, Dragon Ruler of Storms tin and Redox, Dragon Ruler of Boulders tin to review. Now to start things off, each tin comes with 5 packs of cards, 2 being Cosmo Blazer another 2 being Lord of the Tachyon Galaxy packs and the last pack is Number Hunters. In addition to the 5 packs, the tin also comes with 5 promo cards as well.

Share

Deck of the Week: Zombies

This deck is insanely fun to play with. Your main objective for a good Zombie Deck is to get as many strong monsters to the graveyard as possible. As you know zombies are very good for bringing monsters from the graveyard to the field (They are Zombies…. duh).

There are many ways to make a Zombie Deck BUT the best way to make a Zombie Deck is to get as many ‘Special Summon’ cards in your deck as possible and then add some powerful zombies here and there. I found myself only putting XYZ cards in the side deck because of the ability to special summon many monsters each turn.

Share

Deck of the Week: Burn!!!

This is the first time I used burn and now I know why. It gets really boring with all of the traps and spells. A burn deck is inflicting damage to your opponant without attacking through traps, spells, and a monsters effect..

They can get very annoying but playing them is at times fun. My burn deck is based off of what the opponant has as in how many cards in his/her hand, how many cards he/she has on the field, etc.

Shadow Specters Review

This week my friends from Konami gave me the honor of reviewing a new Yugioh set that just came out, which is called Shadow Specters. Shadow Specters releases some new monster arc types and adds on to some popular ones as well. Mecha Phantom Beast make a small appearance, Archfiends make a comeback, Bujins are resurrected, Noble Knights make an honorable return and vampires are furiously out for blood. All these arc types make a comeback in this set and making a debut to the Yugioh world, ghostricks. All these arc types gain a big power boost in this set alone, which gives you the necessary evil to bring down your opponent.

No More Room in Hell Review

This is a Zombie Survival game with no real campaign; just multiplayer maps with different objectives to them. You start with nothing but you have items randomly spawned throughout the map. The overall gameplay is challenging and amazing. The audio makes the game complete with slow music and sounds of the infected. Graphics aren’t the best but still stunning. There are over 15 different maps to choose and each map is very big.

Deck of the Week: Harpies

This week I tried Harpies and they are very powerful when you know how to use them. Unlike fairy’s, harpies take some understanding of the cards and their effects. I would find myself confused at times and other times I would just leave the duel out of anger but once I started playing more and more with them I got the hang of it and I was beating decks like Six Samurai, Blue Eyes, and Exodia.

Skylanders Swapforce Review

I had the pleasure of reviewing one of Activations’ newest games known as Skylanders Swap Force. This game is the third installment of the series and is a sequel to the the Skylanders Giants. Swap Force has the same grab and go characters where you can play as whichever character you like and however you want to play like. Now the main thing in this game is the swap force characters themselves. What’s cool about them is that you can take a swap force character and switch either the top or bottom half of them and switch it with the top or bottom of another swap force character. For example you like the attacks for rattle shake and the teleporting power of hoot loop well then switch them around and now you have rattle loop so your able to have the best of both worlds.
