Heroes Of The Storm – After My Initial Thoughts

image

I have been playing HotS with a buddy of mine for a few rounds a day now, it’s actually enjoyable when everyone works as a team.
My main issue is the people who try to do things alone, just last night we had two guys attempting to solo rush one lane. They managed to get to the core but in the meantime they ignored all of our signals for help. All the enemies pushed a single lane with siege and bruisers. It was impossible to stop them as it was 3 Vs 5 plus they had the Mercenaries. Needless to say we lost the game and the two pushers blamed our bad defense.

This is one thing you don’t see in LoL, everyone is a team. This is the main reason HotS will always be second best when it comes to current MOBA’s.

Rust – Raided Again

image

Well I would like to say I haven’t been raided again since last time but unfortunately I can’t. I have had a stone Base for almost a week now and not once has it been touched. I upgraded to the armoured walls and instantly raided, they took everything worth having. They did leave me alive and with a rock so I decided to fix the hole they made and go for a look around before work today. Found a few blueprints, nothing to scream about, some tools and weapons but unfortunately I was so far away from my Base I had no choice but to hide and logout (had to leave for work). I’m expecting to be killed when I log in tonight but I know where the place is so should be able to get back as it has a lot of Steel drums for blueprints and loot.

Rust – Continuing On

image

Well I’ve been trying to get into Rust and as I said a few posts ago it’s got its problems. I logged out for the night and returned to an empty Base, I mean empty, they even took the clothes off my back. I was left with nothing, my bed had been destroyed and I had no resources. I was fortunate to still have my hidden key to get back into my Base, they had taken my old key, hours of searching and I had enough to make tools and repairs to my Base. I got some clothes and managed to fix my Base so It was a little safe. Again bad luck struck a group on the server known as the AK death squad came knocking, again I lost most of my stuff. Fortunately I found a  comrade who also lost his Base, he helped me get my Base going again and safely we have a more secure Base. We have some resources, we decided the best thing to do is to craft what we need while we loot. And hope not to get raided again.

I’m going to give Rust a little more time before writing it off totally, I have had to rebuild my Base twice in a day. This is a survival game and the server is owned by the person with the most guns. I know you shouldn’t get too upset with these kinds of games, but hours/days of work lost in minutes isn’t fun. If it doesn’t change I’ll probably come back to it in the future but as it stands now this game isn’t worth the time. I often say don’t get attached to loot and items in games like this but it’s hard when hours at a time you lose it all.

Lego Games – Actual Family Fun

image

I’m a big kid at heart and me and my son spend a few hours a week playing Lego Games. While playing Lego Marvel Superheroes I thought to myself the game is actually enjoyable for both of us, to be totally honest there has been a few times I have been bored and jumped on for an hour alone. The games are well put together, not too challenging and take from the franchises they are for very well. There is some adult humour slipped in like in Shrek and a few other kids films. There are some challenges I can’t see my son doing alone, but the feeling I think we both get when he asks me to help and we complete a challenge is fantastic.

Today we finally unlocked Deadpool and the only character left to unlock is the legend Stan Lee. Unfortunately that means the game is all but finished a few missions need 100% complete. Now we have to start on our next Lego adventure (Lego Batman 3), I’m kind of hoping Lego Marvel Superheroes 2 is in the works but only time will tell.

Rust – Better Or Worse?

13_1428755059

Its been some time since I last played Rust and the latest update has teased me back into trying it again.

Within 2 mins of spawning I froze to death, another 15 minutes of looking for food and I got shot, this is the trend I remember for the last time I played. It’s another survival game which everyone just Kills on sight meaning you spend a good few spawns before you actually start getting anywhere.

After 2 hours of the same thing over and over I soon found myself spawning next to a stream with a few houses and animals galore. This is where I spent another two hours making my Base, the new UI makes Base building a easy task, the guys around here talk and help each other I even got offered a key to someone’s Base. This is more like what survival should be like, hunting and gathering is easy when your not running for your life.

Unfortunately hours after starting this post the area I thought was safe was over run with more enemies then friends and my base I spent hours building and filling is now gone with all of my resources. What this game needs is AI for these kill on sight guys to go after rather then every new spawn or player that is just trying to survive.

If you played Rust earlier and enjoyed it then I guarantee you will love the latest update. There is still flaws in the game but these can be over looked if you find the right people and places on a server. You will die and you will lose hours/days of work, its a survival game you have to not grow attached to anything.

Heroes Of The Storm – IMO

image

I enjoy Heroes of the Storm but can’t see it being my go to moba, it’s just not got the pull that LoL has. It’s a simple game which will probably appeal to the players who found League Of Legends too difficult. You don’t have to try and sort what items you need to buy and you level with your team rather then yourself. Without The random Battlegrounds I don’t think it would stand out, fortunately the Battlegrounds are a game changer and it can turn a losing battle around in anyone’s favour. The Hero roster is fantastic taking well renowned characters from each Blizzard franchise and using there skills and weaknesses almost to perfection.

My one gripe is I lost my Beta progress which wasn’t much but still more then nothing. Playing last night was a struggle at first but I think with a little more practice I will get more used to the game.

CSGO – WTF CZ75

csgo-logo

Yesterday mission for bloodhound was to get 20 kills with the CZ75 or Enemy Weapons. I ended up rage quitting two matches and decided to try again later. The CZ75 is the most inaccurate P.O.S I have ever used, and my team for the first two matches of the day hid around corners with the CZ75 at the ready. This is a team game and if everyone just played normal we would all get our mission done and all be happy. The first match I only got 2 mission kills the second 5, due to me quitting I ended up with zero kills. Will have to try again but hope I get some team players and not just solo junkies.

This mission is the first I have actually hated,  the rest have been fun to get, even the Desert Eagle one, everyone knows the Deagle is fucking shit.
