PA_CENTRALIA_NEW

There is a town that is the basis of the Silent hill movie adaptation and it is right here in Pa.

Centralia, PA. Home to a Mine Fire in 1962. The underground mines have been on fire since. The last effort to put out the mine fire was in 1992 and the state claimed all of the property in the town to condemn all of the buildings and relocate the residents. They finally gave up in 2013 when a court stated that the remaining residents could live out their lives in this town. There is currently 10 people in 5 households that live in Centralia who still hold regular borough council meetings to determine the fate of the town despite the zip code for the town being revoked in 2002. It’s a interesting read over at Kotaku!

Chachi Says Console Review: Yoshi’s Woolly World!

Welcome to another Chachi Says Console review! This time we are taking a look at the newly released Yoshi’s Woolly World. Now a lot of people will judge the adults that buy and play This game based on looks alone and you’d be right. The game looks like a basic kids game but completely worth the judgements. I got the edition that came with the yarn knitted Yoshi amiibo for 60 dollars. I also bought the pink one for the fiance because yarn knitted yoshi is something everyone needs!(also this took my total amiibo count up to 2.) Let’s get to Chachi Says Console Review: Yoshi’s Woolly World!

yoshiGame: Yoshi’s Woolly World

Developer: Nintendo

Platform: Wii U

wolly-620x350Object:

Collect the stolen yarn to recreate all of the Yoshi from Craft island.

Game Play:

Magikoopa Kamek is back and causing havoc on Craft island this time. He has disassembled tons of the yarn Yoshis and is trying to escape with the yarn for his own evil uses. Travel across the different sectors of craft island and defeat the legions of shy guys, koopas and magically enhanced enemies courtesy of Kamek. Much like Yoshi’s Island you collect lots of items per level, 5 flowers, 5 yarns, 20 stamp gems and 20 hearts per level to star it and unlock a bonus level for each sector.

The level layouts are that of Yoshi’s island and the story is the same minus the potential for a crying baby Mario which in my opinion makes the game much better. The controls in the game are exactly the same except for the fact that it is on a different controller. The game play in general is exactly the same as Yoshi’s Island which is where my problem with the game lies however it gets made up with the incredible graphics of the game.

images

On each level you collect gems that can be used to buy power ups at the beginning of each level to help you along the way.  Every so often you unlock more that help you specifically with the world you are playing. things like pit rescue, unlimited watermelon, and ability to withstand lava damage are just a few examples.

The amiibo do not do much for the actual game other than allowing you to add another yoshi to your screen giving you double the Yoshi. You can also scan in other amiibo for Yoshi themed mario, samus, Toad, etc etc. The list goes on. Like other amiibo you can use the yoshi in a variety other games for cool effects. i used it in Mario Maker to create a yarn yoshi mushroom.

Sound and Graphics:

This is where the game gets super creative. The background, enemies and all interactive objects in the game are designed to look like it’s hand made. The graphics in this game are incredible. There are a lot of objects that look as if they were merely arranged and filmed for the game. The idea in the graphics style is what got me interested into the game from the beginning and most likely what the selling point of the game will always be. Well, that and you know, Yoshi! The sound is classic Yoshi noises and backing track round out the experience into a new crafty way. The sound effects and music mesh well with the game play

1280x720-jA6Overall:

Overall, the game play/story leaves a little to be desired because it seems to be essentially Yoshi’s island but the graphics and sound more than make up for it. A wonderfully creative way to display a game for both the old and new audience alike. All in all an enjoyable experience. I give it a 4 out of 5.

Chachi responds to Rizz Rant: Pixels!

So Rizz wrote this: http://insertcointobegin.com/2015/07/27/rizz-rant-pixels-what-did-you-expect/

I can respond now.

I know on the outside the ICTB family seems like a cohesive unit that gets along nicely, that’s not entirely true. We argue all the time. Rizz is usually wrong. I usually let his wrongness go, but he wrote a rant about Pixels, again I typically would let it go. However, he NEVER WATCHED THE MOVIE! How can you review a movie without seeing said movie? A movie is not the 2 minute trailers. So I sat down and watched the movie.

Now to shutdown Rizz.

Pixels was written by Tim Herlihy, Tim Dowling, Patrick Jean. Not Adam Sandler. Produced by a total of 19 people, one of which was Adam Sandler, but let’s be honest it was title only. Adam Sandler wasn’t the casting director either so really the only thing he did was act which is what someone hired him to do. The only reason Rizz jumped on Adam Sandler’s hate wagon was because that’s the “cool thing to do on the internet these days” No one complained with Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, Little Nicky, Big Daddy the list goes on and on. Most of the people hating on him haven’t seen the great films he has done such as Reign over me or Funny People. Not every movie an actor does is going to be a hit but to poo all over him for anything he does is uncalled for.

Shut it Rizz. next time watch a movie before you review it.

indexThe cast in this movie is exactly what you expect. 4 super ass nerdy guys who are into video games. It’s the classic tale of NASA sending samples of earth life to space in hopes that a friendly alien life form sees it and communicates nicely with earth and helps us become super advances. However it all backfires when the alien life form tries to kill everything using our beloved video games.

The plot was solid and the sound track matched the movie. The movie was entertaining from start to finish. I’ll probably watch it again sooner rather than later to pick up the little things that I may have missed. It was an awesome take on what originally was just an internet short. This is the movie premise we needed.

here is the original short for reference.

Until next time I only have one thing to say.

Let the nerds take over!

“Adam Jones from Skegness caused thousands of pounds worth of damage to cars parked as he cruised through Grantham on a busy Friday night.

The reckless motorist was caught when he drove over a stinger device while on the way back to his girlfriend’s home last April.

During police interviews the 24-year-old revealed that he had never taken a driving test and learned to drive on his Playstation.

At Lincoln Crown Court yesterday, Jones was jailed for 12 months after admitting aggravated vehicle taking and driving without a licence or insurance. He was also banned from driving for three years and ordered to take an extended test.”

Friday Fun Mobile Review: Walking Dead: Road to Survival!

Welcome to this week’s Friday Fun Mobile Review: Walking Dead: Road to Survival! This week the review is a little more mainstream than the typical unheard of randomness that I stumbled upon in the app store. This week I bring you Walking Dead: Road to survival. This is a Game based on the comic books not the tv show. Now some of the characters are the same just with a different look. You’ll see what I mean. Let’s get to it!

titleGame: Walking Dead: Road to Survival

Developer: Scopely

Platforms: Android, iOS

Objective:

Make the choices that lead to your survival

Game play:

The game play is easier than you would think. There isn’t much to do. Upgrade the features of the town to help with the story and creating and leveling your team. As you level up you can add or unlock higher level characters to create your team.

Now you will be responsible for building up your town to help train new fighters and creating enough food for them all which you can buy your way through or just grind it out. You can use resources to purchase player packs and increase your team. Now you are given choices to make throughout the game that will affect which way the game goes. they usually involve killing or not killing someone you don’t trust.

battleThe battles are comprised of waves of either zombies or other groups of survivors in order to advance in the story. The battles are turn based attacks from both sides. matching up the character types against whatever is weakest in the battle. There are multiple waves per battle so if you lose a character in the beginning of the battle they are gone but win the battle and you are fine.

Graphics and sound:

The graphics in this game are not bad for what they are. Barely moving stills. There is very little actual movement in the animation in this game. The movement is the animations programmed in when there are attacks being done. The character design is taken straight from the comic but no real work was put into the animations. The sound starts with an ominus backing track on the town screen which changes to an up tempo song with zombie noises during the attacking screens. As generic as you could get.

townOverall:

Overall, I’m left wanting more from a game of this nature. I think that because of the TellTale games version of Walking dead i was hoping for something with a little more action and less point click gaming. While not bad the sound and graphics leave a lot to be desired. While the gameplay itself is practically non existant. This game is only a few steps away from playing itself. I give this game a 3 out of 5.
