Sonic Month

so a few days ago now I went back to one of the streamers I followed to watch him play. I played with him on Stream and it was fun. I asked if I can join in the call next time and he said yes. I was so fun that he and his friends added me to their group of friends. now I’m apart of something great and fun

for the whole of Aug, myself and three others are playing nothing but Sonic games for Charity. well, four Charities. Mental Health Foundation UK, Child’s Play, St. Judes Children’s Hospital and Scottish Autism (not really a Charity but I want to give back to them as they helped my family) we also have bonus games when we hit goals. so far, we have £35 and that means we have a lot of games to play. I’ve been co-hosting with Nick (one of the players) and I don’t start Streaming until the 6th with Sonic Heroes.

also, on the 15th Sonic Mania is out and we’re all playing the game at the same time. Josh is playing the game on the channel (another player and the boss) and me, Nick and hopefully Grunt will be playing on our own channels. Josh doesn’t know this but I’m going to make a poll on who will finish the game first. (i can tell you it won’t be me)

my games are Heroes, 06, Black Knight, Secret Rings, Sonic 4 EP2 with Nick and Lost world. I also have some bonus games being Sonic Riders, Riders: Zero gravity, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed with Josh and the Olympics Games. I hope I do well with all the games I’m doing.

this is the link to the channel, even if you can’t give money, sharing the Stream and just watching would mean the world to us. Sonic month

and this is the plan for all the games

that’s all for now, see you later! ♥

my Nintendo Switch

so today my Nintendo Switch showed up. yes, I got my hands on one. I only have one game for it being Splatoon 2 a game I use to play on my Wii U. setting up the switch wasn’t as hard or a pain as I thought it was going to be. downloading the game only took about 30 mins to do and I was playing a game I almost forgot have much fun it was.

there’s just one thing wrong with it… the controller. the Joy cons are more like pain cons. my hands hurt so much playing only 15 mins of the game. so I have ordered a pro-controller to hopefully have a more painless time with the game. there are games I want I just have to wait. games like Mario and Rabbits kingdom battle that looks fun. fire emblem warriors as I loved Hyrule Warriors and I do like fire emblem. I would only get Mario Kart 8 if I find it on sale. super Mario Odyssey as I normally get the 3D Mario games.

it’ll get a Lego game not sure what one as all my consoles (apart from PS1 and GameCube) have Lego games. I know it’s going to be hard to get Switch games as they are like sometimes more than a PS4 copy. and as most people keep asking me, NO none of the Sonic games, Mania and Forces are NOT going on the Switch. my PS4 called them first.

so far I like it but I only have one game and I need to see what the pro-controller is like and hopefully, my hands won’t hurt as much as they still do right now.

that’s all for now, see you later ♥

some what of a review:

NOTE: this review is based on my on experience with the game. i am not paid to review the game or am i told to talk shit about it. this is what i think about the game and would i recommend it to others. i will also be talking about what i look for in a game so i won’t be talking about everything in the games

What is Little Nightmares?

Little Nightmare is an Indie Puzzle thriller by Tarsier Studios and Published by Bandai Namco. the player takes control of a little child called Six as she makes her way through the Maw. on the way hiding from monster like humans as they try to catch her or eat her. along the way finding little children with cones on their called Nome that she can hug and little statues of a character called the lady that Six can break. the game came out on the 28th of April 2017 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Gameplay (PS4)

the game doesn’t have a lot of buttons. L2 lets you crunch and slide when running. R2 lets you hold onto items and climb. X is Jump, Square is Run and circle turns on and off your little lighter. you spend a good half of the game hiding and running from the monsters. the long armed the janitor, the twin Chefs, the guests and the lady. when you’re not hiding or running your solving puzzles and finding the collectables.

it was easy to play the game. every time I had to hide from the monsters I felt my heart skip a beat. sometimes I didn’t want to move in fear I would get seen. sometimes when I’m hiding they still see me. I guess there is a little bug there but this only happened I think about three times.

Story

well… there isn’t much in cutscenes or voice acting to tell the story. it’s up to the player to find the story. some of the fans have made up some great stories and theories that fill the world of little nightmares. there is a comic out that goes into the story we don’t see in the game. I myself haven’t seen it so I don’t know how it goes. I will link some of my favourites at the end of this review.

Character

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

the character the player plays as is a child named Six. she is a very small character wearing a bright yellow raincoat and white shorts only seen a few times in the game. she has her hood up at all times so you can only see her lower face and her black hair that covers her eyes, she is also barefoot.

the main villain of the game is the Lady. she is dressed in traditional Japanese wear with dark brown kimono and her long black hair in a Maru-mage style (it was the closest Japanese hairstyles I could find) and a white mask that hides her face. at some points in the game, she has sing, an eerie song and sent chills down my back.

Six and the Lady are the only normal looking humans on the Maw. the other characters like the twins and the Janitor are grotesque and ugly. the twins seem to be wearing masks as if you look at them they will scratch under their ‘faces’. the nome’s look a little bit normal like Six and the Lady, but at the same time look a little bit like the others. they act very shy but you can hug them as one of the collectables.

Music and Sound

the eerie sounds in the game give you a feeling of fear, not knowing what is in the next room. the music kicks in when something is coming. both go very well with each other and not really much to say.

Overall

Little Nightmares is a really good game and I see why other reviewers have been giving the game good reviews. when I streamed the game someone from chat said it reminds him or inside and limbo due to its similar feels in how it tells its story. there is more to the game as DLC is coming out and one of them is out as of writing this. I think I’ll give the game 4 out of 5 and would recommend it to any player and to players who enjoyed inside and limbo. the game took me 3 hours to beat and that also looking for the collectables.

well, I hope you enjoyed this review. can I note that I never read reviews myself so I have no idea why I did this… but I just wanted to write something down about what I think of the game.

that’s all for now, see you later! ♥

(i forgot to link some of the Fan’s stories and theories, so here)

3 Little Nightmares Fan Theories That Will Boggle Your Mind

try hard

so this week hasn’t been much but I have been trying to get some trophies on my PS4. as an update on my PS4, my dad opened it up and gave it a good clean and it works just like before and I’m so happy! so I had a look at all my trophies and saw that I’m only 6 trophies away from getting the platinum. the game is… Skylanders imaginators. I’m still upset that there will be no more Skylanders games as I did love the games and I was more happy to see Spyro again. the next closest to platinum is ratchet & clank.

I’ve been playing way too much overwatch and need to play my other games so going trophies hunting is a way for me to play the other games. also to get more platinum trophies.

that’s all for now, see you later! ♥

long time no blog

hey, everyone. first off, I know I haven’t done a blog in some time. sometimes I don’t know what to write about, my days are just so normal I don’t think anyone wants to read them. so I’ll try and do like a weekly blog giving you guys an idea of how my week has been and we’ll take it from there okay?

so what happened. well, I’ve been away on two holidays within three days apart. the first one was Friday to Tuesday I went to Warwickshire with my mum, dad and brother. I was alone in the cottage on Saturday and the on Sunday I went to Drayton Manor to meet with my two friends I met over on overwatch, Megan and Jack. we had so much fun and I’m so glad I met them and hope we meet up again. Megan, Karina and Jack

we came home on the Tuesday and that same week on the Friday me and my mum went on a girls only holiday to the making of harry potter in London. this is a studio tour with everything from stages, items and outfits that were used in the films. this was my 4th time there and each time I have gone there was something new. this time was the forbidden forest. I wasn’t looking forward to this as I have a huge, and I mean huge, fear of spiders. I was told by friends who had already seen the forest said the spiders and even Aragog (he’s like the king of the spiders) move. I looked it up and want I found is that they didn’t move. so I went in thinking they didn’t move. I see one lowering over me and I ran like Sonic out of the forest (i also screamed). my heart was racing and I felt like I was going to pass out. but I pulled all what was left of my courage and went back in. as I have said on twitter and facebook.

“i came, i saw the spider and i got the hell out of there”

I did get some Hufflepuff items as it’s my house. I came back on the Sunday and let’s just say the bus almost killed my back DX.

I was also having a problem with my PS4. it was slowing down with gameplay and online games and it was overheating very badly but now it’s fixed, somehow. I have done one stream so far but I missed my own anniversary on streaming, it was the 2nd of July. I was away so I couldn’t do it and the stream I did so far was an overwatch stream. I really need to stop streaming it as no one watches it.

I think that’s all I can think of to write about. I hope doing weekly updates does down well, as I’m still not use to blogging so if anyone has any tips that would be great

that’s all for now, see you later! ♥

I may take a year off

well, I’ve been stressed as hell for the past 2 weeks. something happened in my family that I can’t say online, just know that it was scary and it’s getting fixed. it’s also near the end of my college year and the stress of family and college has gotten to me. I’ve been unable to sleep well and I spent most of my time on Overwatch trying to feel better. I’ve never been able to deal with stress and one time it got too much…. I started to hurt myself. don’t worry, I haven’t done that for 3 or 4 years now. I’m just glad I have friends and family who care and have been helping in their own way to make me feel better.

so to help with the stress I may get a year off of College to calm my mind before going for my HND. the summer is coming and I’ll be meeting two of my friends I made over overwatch in 2 weeks. I can’t wait to meet them and give them a real hug.

E3 is also coming up and I’ll be watching as much of the live streams as I can. I’m hoping for news on the new Sonic games, the new Pokemon games on 3DS, new PS4 games I may get and any games for the switch that may make me buy one.

more Streams in the summer and hopefully make more posts here as I do like my blog and you never know, maybe someone big may find me XD.

that’s all for now, see you later! ♥

almost there

3 weeks left of College and then on off for the summer. I’m still trying to find out where I’m going after this college but hopefully, I can do something after the summer. slowly getting back to Streaming and this one tomorrow as of writing this blog. I’ve left a Poll for my discord and Twitter followers and whatever they pick I’ll play, I really don’t mind which one they pick I’m happy doing them.

it’s also two months until the 10th anniversary of not only my time on YouTube but also my Storm Twins Samlee and Danny. I will start posting them online as it’ll help share them with people and maybe, just maybe… someone will see them and want to bring them to live (fingers crossed). it’s also a good idea to do that as you never know, they may like them ♥

that’s all for now, see you later! ♥

Is Dungeons and Dragons the next level in Geek?

so I have never played dungeons and dragons before and for the longest time, I didn’t want to play it. someone from my college class plays it and is mad about it (like me with Video games) I world sometimes see him working on DandD maps and talking to other players on discord. he had tried to get me to play but I said no. my only fear with the game is it looks so confusing and he kept saying I’d be fine if it isn’t in the most simple way I won’t get it most of the time.

so on Wed my cousin texted me and asked if I knew what DandD is. I said yes and that my classmate plays it. he then asked if I wanted to play with him and some of his friends. keep in mind he is 17 and his friends are around his age and I’m 22. I wasn’t sure about it but I ended up saying yes.

so today he came over and we worked on my character for the game. a good thing that’s going to come out of this is I will have another character for my portfolio of Characters that I have made. one of my cousin’s friends is going to pay someone to draw our characters in a professional way. I have a drawing already of her and I like how she’s turning out for someone made within 3 to 4 hours. they didn’t want the little things like age, birthday etc. but for me, there are key parts of a character (birthday most of the time isn’t needed).

maybe in the next post I may share her with you guys and maybe add a part on this blog for my characters, if I want my characters to be seen I have to show them. so my twins will be seen with their new looks and their friends and hopefully, this will help them getting seen by someone like SEGA, Sony or Nintendo, you never know.

that’s all for now, see you later! ♥

what I think of Sonic Forces so far

so I’ve been a Sonic fan for about 16 years and I have loved all the 3D games, Yes even 06. so the two new games are coming out this year, mania and Forces. I have preordered Mania and just waiting for the preorders for Forces to show up so I can get a copy. I really can’t talk about Mania as I never grew up with the old 2D games and really can’t play them so I will be talking about the game I want the most, Forces.

so, let’s go back to last year in July at San Diego comic con where SEGA held a birthday party for Sonic. there, they announced two games. one game for the older Sonic fans that will be a blast from the past in Sonic Mania, the other a darker game with two Sonics in Project Sonic 2017 now known as Sonic Forces. I stayed up super late to watch the party and I cried when I saw forces. I couldn’t be happier as people were saying SEGA left the Sonic I loved for Boom Sonic and Classic but they didn’t and I felt so happy. in August the last Summer of Sonic was held in London and I went and got to play Green Hill Zone of Sonic Mania and it was good and I would get it. nothing on Sonic Forces until two months ago when we got the name and the first gameplay for Modern Sonic. 3 weeks ago we get Classic’s gameplay and just yesterday they dropped the mic. (five points if you got that XD) you can make your own Character to help both Sonic’s in stopping Eggman.

now, as a character designer in training, this is the best thing ever! this is why I loved Skylanders Imaginators, being able to make a character of your own and see them in the game, fighting, helping and moving is just the game. I have seen people saying things like “DeviantART is going to have a field day with this”, yes, but their thinking about the poorly done characters that are recolours. there don’t talk about some of the most well-made fan characters ever. they keep thinking the poorly made ones and not the well-made ones. most of my characters came from being Sonic fan characters and as much as I would love to see them with my hero, I won’t be adding them to the game.

here is why. let’s use Samlee for this. she was a recolour of Sonic himself. I was 12, saw other people doing it so I thought it was okay and it clearly isn’t. she has had something from Sonic in all her looks until her newest design which is a calico cat with pale green eyes like a peridot. I am trying to keep her, her sister and her world away from Sonic and with this new game, i’m going to find it a bit harder. making a Sonic fan character only won’t be hard, they won’t have any ties to Sonic or his friends as most fan characters do. I will keep you up to date with this one as unlike Samlee, this one will be posted online.

if you have any thoughts on this, do you think SEGA did the right move with this if you’re getting the game what kind of character will you make? let me know, I would love to hear about it.

that’s all for now, see you later! ♥

A New Idea

my mind like to wonder. it comes up with these stories to help me sleep and keeps me entertained when I’m in a car or bus, with help from Music. an idea can come out of the blue and it did when I was having a shower. two things that I’m into apart from Video games are Gems and Stars. I use to go star gazing with my dad on winter nights and I have some real gemstones like Rose quartz and lapis lazuli. my twins, Samlee and Danny are from Gemtara a kingdom known for their Gems and their towns named after them. I never thought about Stars until I saw some in the shower… (the water was too hot, my bad) as soon as I was done and dry I grabbed my thinking book and started writing down what my mind was already telling me. I did a map of a star island, a shield like design and the name, Polaris. Polaris is the star at the end of the tail of the little dipper. I’m still working on other key parts. like the characters, the story, the island’s past, do they believe in any gods like Gemtara has demigods etc.

I haven’t done this since I made my Characters and Crystal Valley back in 2007, almost 10 years. like what I’m doing with Gemtara, I can’t share too much info as I haven’t gotten my ideas over the copyright law to keep them safe from people who could take them from me. it’s a pain as I want to share my ideas so people can see and maybe enjoy them. maybe down the line of my college years they may help with showing my art safely online. if I ever want to see my worlds come to live i have to show what I have.

that’s all for now, see you later! ♥
