Fact of the day #44

A couple of soldiers in God of War emits a sound called Wilhelm scream, this sound has been used in TV and movie productions for over 50 years. You can also hear this sound in Metal Slug, Lost Planet, Scarface and LEGO: Star Wars.


Opinion: Terraria vs Minecraft

Minecraft, all the people knows about it, but maybe you dont know Terraria, a very good games that in some aspects, DESTROYS MINECRAFT, lets check out...

Dead-Pool"s opinion:

For me, Minecraft still looking better than Terraria but like i said before, in some aspects Terraria DESTROYS MINECRAFT. Probably you are guessing what can be better in Terraria? First, the bosses, in Minecraft are only two bosses and they are not as difficult than Terraria ones, in Terraria are like 10 and they are very difficult and you have to had good armor and weapons like silver swords or gold swords. Second and finally, the variety, they are like 20 materials and like 20 weapons and armor, but, Why people(including me) prefer Minecraft? Because the online is such better than Terraria and there is a story, also the excitement when you find diamond or the Stronghold.

Conclusion: For me, Minecraft is better but i didnt said that Terraria is bad, anyway all based in the personal opinion.


Fact of the day #43

Actually Black ops II is the only Call of Duty game that has more than two different endings.


Fact of the Day #42

The play area in GTA: San Andreas is roughly 17 square miles. That"s like five times Liberty city and four times the size of Vice city.

Impressions: Playstation All Stars Battle Royale

A new Smash game, for PS3?, its called Playstation All Stars: Battle Royale, all the people think that is a copy from the classic nintendo game Super Smash Bros., but not, got very different aspects, let me show you.....

Dead-Pool"s impressions:

The characters in this game are very good and well adapted, the idea to put a Super Smash Bros. game with playstation characters like Jak or Kratos. The playability is almost the same as the Smash Bros. and the graphics are awesome.
Unfortunatly, the original PS fox Crash is not in this game, he was one of the most expected characters for this game after Jak and Kratos, another one was Wander, the guy from Shadow of the Colossus. And they put a Fat Princess and no Crash, THAT GETS ME ANNOYED!!!

The online mode is better than Super Smash Bros Brawl, you dont have to wait like two hours to connect to a match.

Conclusion: The game is out now so if you have a PS3 and you want a very good fighting game, buy it and you are going to get fun a lot.( recomendation: play this game with friends)


Review: Terraria.

In May 16th 2011 (Dead-Pool"s birthday by the way) a new indie game named Terraria came out, this way selled a lot and it became very popular both as a good game and as something diferent from all the other games, and how is this game?, lets find out.

The story: ...Yeah there is none, the only thing is that you have to defeat bosses and get a village full of
people so they can help you.

The Gameplay: This is the BIG element that surronds the game, as your character your objective is to grow stronger and stronger by mining, crafting, getting items, defeat enemies and having fun, you begin the game with a puny and pathetic copper sword, pickaxe and axe, the first idea is to get wood by destroying it with an axe, and remember this formula
-Pickaxe= almost everything.
-Axe= Wood in general.
-Hammer= Crystal Hearts and walls.
but as you go along you get ridiciously strong and you get all kinds of items and armor, let me explain.
-When you begin you find copper and make copper weapons and armor(THEY ARE PATHETIC)
-Then you get Iron and the iron weapons and armor are slightly better.
-Then you get silver and it actually is decent, doesnt make much damage but it looks cool
-And then suddenly GOLD!, unlike Minecraft the gold is actually useful, only problem is it looks goofy.
After getting some Gold you are going to need anvils and furnaces to craft everything you are going to need.

And then the bosses, well let me say this right now, this is one aspect of the game that terraria destroys Minecraft, there are a total of 7 bosses and 1 mini-boss, the weakest boss and the one you should target to kill first is "The Eye of Cthulhu" and if you dont have some silver or Gold armor and weapons you are going to get raped, next up is "The eater of worlds" and he is a giant purple worm, it really isnt that dificult.

When those bosses are killed you get some shadow ores and shadow scales, use them to create a Nightmare Pickaxe and Shadow armor, after this you have to get to the underground until you find...


Hell is full of monsters and a new ore called the Hellstone ore, use it to create the best things in the game, then you do some kind of ritual and fight the ultimate boss, Wall of Flesh, believe me this battle is tough but beating awards you with something, something that you must wait to know...

My personal favorite weapon.
But in terms of variety this game beats EVERYTHING, dont want to use a sword?, use a spear, dont want to use a spear?, use a Bow, dont want to use a Bow?, just use a Gun or a repeater, there are so many options, also in terms of accesorys and armors, theres armor that grants you defense, speed, attack, so many options!

But there is one other aspect that diferenciates itself from Minecraft aside from the 2D, the NPCs, if you make a house with the conditions applied, some NPCs can move to your village, this ranges from Nurses that heal you to Demolitionists that sell you dinamite and bombs, this is a really nice dinamic.

The Graphics:
The game looks nice and all, the art style is really nice and it just screams "Retro!" to me, it is something incredibly awesome.

The Music:
Well the music is OK, the main theme is enjoyable and the other themes inspire adventure and exploration.

The replay Value:
Unfortunately this is where Terraria falls flat on its face, after 1.1.2 Re-Logic gave up on terraria, not updating it anymore and that sucks, while the multiplayer is pretty fun and the variety is all right it doesnt have the same feeling of adventure that Minecraft has.

The Conclusion:
While Terraria is a fun experience overall, it lacks the elements that can make the game perfect and for that the game is only OK, if you have some friends to play with or just want to try something diferent, give it a shot.

A 7 means the game is pretty good, while not perfect the game is still enjoyable.

Fact of the day #40

Before the 1.8 adventure update in Minecraft the Zombies dropped feathers, Notch actually stated that he putted in the feathers just for pure randomness.
