Review: Bubble Ball (App)

Bubble Ball

(3.6/5)


Bubble Ball is an app for iPhone/iPod Touch and the iPad. The object of the game is to get a ball to the checkered finish flag. To do that you have to move pieces of wood, steel, and other power ups such as speed up, slow down, and anti-gravity. There's 96 (free) levels and 23 new ones that cost $0.99 to get. There's a lot of easy levels but there's also some hard ones. So it works your brain out. I like the game, not the best game ever but it's better than some. Things that are missing is background music / noise! There's no music which can be a bit awkward! Well not as much awkward as annoying. I suggest download this if you like puzzle games and like to work your brain. If you don't like to use your brain (which seems to be a majority of us :P) this app might not be for you.
P.S. You're a blue ball but you can change it to a couple of different colors. :)

Bubble Ball: (Overview)
Platform: iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch (iOS 3.1 or later)
Cost: Free ($0.99 for 23 extra levels)
Rating: 3.6/5
Quick Review: Great game for exercising your brain.
 Recommended Buy?: Yes, if you like Puzzle games.

Review: GuildWars (Video Game)

GuildWars

(4/5)

 

Many of you may already know of Guild Wars but here's my review! Guild Wars is a MMORPG (Some say it's a CORPG). It's like a Roman or Greece type of theme. Currently there's 3 campaigns (Prophecies, Faction, and Nightfall.) There's also an expansion pack, Eye of The North. First you create an avatar. You get to choose what kind of profession you want to be like Warrior, Monk, Elementalist, Ranger, Necromancer and Mesmer. Each have there own skills, strong points and weak points. You choose whether you want to be PvP or PvE. IF your PvE you start by doing quests and missions to gain xp and level up. (If your PvP you automatically are level 20, which is the max level.) As you continue through the story line and other missions you meet new people, aka Henchmen, and get new skills. Once you become a beast at the game you can join or create a guild and compete against other people! I'm somewhat good...still a noob by most people standards. This game has some good graphics and skills. And the fact that there's no subscription costs is a huge plus! However I still want some more features. Like mounts (Animals or things you can travel on) and some more map room. The game is still well worth the $20-$30! I Suggest getting it.

GuildWars: Overview
Platform: PC
Cost: $19.99
Rating: 4/5
Quick Review: Great game play and graphics could use some more features to keep me coming back more often.
Recommended Buy?: Yes

Star Wars: The Old Republic (Free Weekend Trial)

Some of you might know of the somewhat new MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic. Well if you don't or if your not sure whether to pay the money to play there's a free weekend trial. I'm downloading it as I type. (It's taking took forever to download... >:/) So I can't give any review on how it is or anything till I get playing. Which is hopefully soon. But I'll update this post as soon as I get a hour or two in the game. But why wait for me to post a review? Go sign up and start downloading the free trial now!

(Update:April 7th AM)Okay so here it is! I finally downloaded the game and at first it wasn't that good. Then my friend joined me (he owns the actual game) and we started playing. Then it was very fun. The graphics weren't as good as I thought they were going to be but they're still good. I think this MMO is way better than World of Warcraft. I'm a Star Wars fan so I find the worlds here better than World of Warcraft.  I love wielding a light saber. (I finally got two sabers now :P) The skills are very cool. I love my jumping in and cutting the enemy in to smithereens! I'm only like level 12 so I'm not that far in, but I love it this far. One thing I would want added is to be able to do flip jumps! I mean come on! I'm a Jedi / Sith and I can't do flips? I'm stilling getting used to the controls but they're very easy to learn. But so far I WOULD pay for this game but not the amount they want. I would pay like $20 - $35 and pay $10 for like 3 months. I still have a lot of time before the free trial is over so I'm going to get back to the game and enjoy it while I can.

(Update: April 7th PM) Okay so I enjoyed the free trial. I can't play tomorrow because of Easter but it was fun while it lasted. Star Wars: The Old Republic has some nice features other MMO's don't. I think this game is much better than World of Warcraft! The graphics seem a little better. The animation of skills are much much better in Star Wars. The storyline (although only got through a little) was great! You have options to choose whether you wanna be bad or good. And different choices affect how good or bad you are. I probably wont be buying this game anytime soon just because I don't have the money. But I really recommend this game to Star Wars fans and MMO fans.



Here's some stuff on the game:

"Play Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ and be the
hero of your own Star Wars™ saga in a story-driven
massively-multiplayer online game from BioWare and LucasArts.
Explore an age thousands of years before the rise of Darth Vader when war between
the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire divides the galaxy.
Choose to be a Jedi, a Sith, or from a variety of other classic Star Wars roles, and make decisions which define your personal story and determine your path down the light or dark side of the Force. Along the way you will befriend courageous companions who will fight at your side or possibly betray you based on your actions. Together, you will battle enemies in dynamic Star Wars combat and team up with other players to overcome incredible challenges.
Join us. Your personal Star Wars saga begins in Star Wars: The Old Republic." 

Star Wars: The Old Republic Costs, $59.99 for a Standard Copy, $79.99 for a Deluxe Copy, and $149.99 for a Collectors Copy.
(You can see the differences between copies Here!)

 Star Wars: The Old Republic costs $29.99 for 60 days of pre-paid game play.

Have you played the free trial or do you own the game? How do you like the game? Is it worth all the money to play? Let us know!

Nicki Minaj's New Album: Pink Friday...Roman Reloaded

You've probably heard of Nicki Minaj's new album Pink Friday Roman Reloaded. It was just released on April 3rd. I'm not doing a full review just a quick update for you people that also like dance pop music but wouldn't think Nicki Minaj would be the kind of person to go to for that kind of music.Will I buy the album? Probably not. 
(But some of the songs may magically appear on my iPod...)


I'm not a huge Nicki Minaj fan but there's some songs on the new release of her album that I like. Including the per-released Starships, I also like Pound The Alarm, Whip It, Automatic, Va Va Voom, and Beautiful Sinner.  These are all dance songs that sound like they might be playing on the radio or at the club. All with minimal rapping. As of right not the album is #1 on iTunes top 10 albums. So how do you guys like it? Do you like the more Pop sound of Nicki Minaj or the Rap sound of Nicki Minaj? There's a lot of people saying that they don't like the Pop songs and some say they love the Pop songs. So let me know how you like Nicki Minaj's new album Pink Friday...Roman Reloaded in the comments or email me at fireball916@gmail.com. I'll end this post with some YouTube videos so you can listen to some of the songs I liked off the new 'Roman Reloaded' album.

Review: Jetpack Joyride (App)

Jetpack Joyride

 

(3.5/5)


So Jetpack Joyride is a endless runner. I'm not a huge fan of them but I like to play them once in awhile. Now this game you're breaking out of a lab looking place and you steal a jetpack that shoots out bullets. (I think) Any then you try to go as far as you can. On the way there's obstacles like missiles, electrical beams (some rotate), and lazer beams. You also can collect coins, spin coins, and tokens. The coins are used (like every other game) in a shop, they call it the stash. In 'the stash' you can buy clothing to change the clothing of your character, jetpacks to change jetpacks, and vehicle upgrades, I'll get to vehicle's later, and utilities, which include powerups such as head starts revives and unlocking missions. You can also view your achievements and profile in the stash. The spin coins can be used to play a slot machine when you finally crash and burn. You can win coins or powerups there, or you can turn in the spin coins for 50 coins each. The tokens, when collected, will give you a vehicle. There's many types of vehicle's. Including,The Hog, The Teleporter, The Stomper, The Bird, The Gravity Suit, and Cuddles. Each vehicle has their own way of operating and flying. My favorite is the Cuddles (which is a dragon...). Now I've previously mentioned Achievements,  there are 31 different achievements, these are anything from collecting exactly 69 coins (Hehe Haha) to Flying 2km without touch a single coin, scientist, or token. These achievements are diffrent from missions though. You can only have 3 missions going at a time and have to complete one to get a new one. The missions have a star value and when you complete one you get however many stars the mission was worth. When you die you go to a screen and it tells you how many meters you went and how many coins you collected. It also shows you friends scores (Openfient). And it shows your statistics for that round. So as I said before I'm not a huge fan of endless runners but this one was okay. I like collecting coins and using them to get upgrades and new stuff. It keeps the game fresh. I suggest trying it if you like endless runners.

(Update: April 25th, New update! The biggest update so far says Halfbrick. It includes lots of new features and gadgets to enhance you gameplay!
Here's a complete list of the gadgets:
Sector 1: Research and Development
  • Air Barrys (3,500 Coins) - Leap gracefully over obstacles with these designer sneakers.
  • Nerd Repellent (2,000 Coins) - The patent-pending formula is so potent that the whole laboratory had to be abandoned.
  • Insta-Ball (2000 Coins) - Bounce off the floor instead of going splat. Great for traveling a few extra meters.
Sector 2: Fringe Science
  • Gravity Belt (5,000 Coins) - Make the ground come at you a lot faster than usual. Be sure to bend your knees when you land.
  • Missile Jammer (5000 Coins) - Replaces the missile guidance program with pictures of kittens downloaded from the internet. Only works if the kittens are particularly cute.
  • Token Gift (5000 Coins) - What do you give someone who has everything? A free final spin token, of course!
Sector 3: Pseudoscience Action Group
  • Freeze-O-Matic (3,000 Coins) - There’s no better way to cool down after a hard run than being snap-frozen in a solid block of ice. It also helps you slide a few extra meters.
  • X-Ray Specs (4500 Coins) - This high-tech eye wear is both fashionable and functional. Now you can look inside vehicle pickups and other places you’re not supposed to see.
  • Gemology (6,500 Coins) - A special Blingification technique that converts coins into high-value Gems. For some reason it only works on coins minted in 1985.
Sector 4: Futureologist Lounge
  • Ezy-Dodge Missiles (5,500 Coins) - If you’re going to play a game of chicken with a missile, make sure it’s an Ezy-Dodge!
  • Magnetic Tokens (4,500 Coins) - Every token is fitted with a super-strong magnet. They are easier to collect, but will probably wipe your credit card.
  • Flying Pig (6000 Coins) - This highly-unstable coin transporter was designed by a scientist with a particular fondness for physical comedy.
Sector 5: Testing Zone
  • Free Ride (5,000 Coins) - Stop off at the motor pool before smashing through the laboratory wall. Why didn’t Barry think of this earlier?
  • Coin Magnet (6,000 Coins) - Once you get used to the feeling of being endlessly pelted with coins you will start to wonder how you ever lived without it.
  • Lucky Last (5500 Coins) - Your final spin token is forged from fortunium, the world’s luckiest element.

    That's a lot of stuff! Better check it out!)
Jetpack Joyride: Overview
Platform:  iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch (iOS 3.1.3 or later)
Cost: Free
Rating: 3.5/5
Quick Review:An okay endless runner. Lots of mission and achievements to keep you going.
