Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II is pretty good game to play. This game takes place a year later after Return of the Jedi. So, the Rebel Alliance is rebuilding the new Republic. You are Kyle Katarn in this game and he wants revenge against the person whom killed his father. The person who killed Kyle’s father is Jerec. Jerec is a dark Jedi and plans to rebuild the Empire. He is seeking to find the valley of the Jedis. Kyle’s job is to stop Jerec getting to valley of the Jedis.

Well, for me, I used a mod in this game. So I didn’t play as Kyle Katarn. Use a mod call a Sailor Jupiter mod. This mod will be more helpful later on in the game. The gameplay runs like Morrowind. This game lets you switch from first-person view and to third-person view. When you are using the lightsaber, your best bet to use it in third-person view. The first person view doesn’t look all that great for lightsaber.

This is where it began, with an archeology student, Dr. Emily Jones, and a mission, which turns out to be far more involved than she ever imagined. So, using a grid, some funky coloured stones, many gems, and some crazy magickal tools, she sets off to find the connexion between the ancient civilizations both in the New and Olde World.

So, here with go, with a swap-style match 3 game done during the earlier days at the developers of Alawar Games, when for some reason, they were rather picky on how one could proceed to the next level in one of their games. In The Treasures Of Montezuma, like in many of their earlier games, you have to get everything they requested in a insanely short allotment of time, or you cannot proceed to the next puzzle until you do. This is where those tools come in handy. Your best bet is to work with those things that grant you more time. The orange idols, and the little clocks that appear on the grid when you get a special combo or a big score. As many times as it is nice to hear that guy say “Score Frenzy!” it is not going to help you when you need that extra time to get all the gems needed to get to the next level, and the number keeps rising with next level.

TDF Honey Ketchup

Recipes_From_The_Fridge-150x150This ketchup is the very best that I can ever remember tasting. It is clean, light and yet bold as well. It has a smooth flavor that will make you never want to have another type of ketchup ever. This is what the condiment tomato sauce should taste like and is better than any store bought I can remember. Once you try this flavorful to die for ketchup you won’t want another kind ever.

Ingredients for TDF Honey Ketchup

6 oz. tomato paste
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup rice vinegar*
1/4 cup water
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. finely minced sweet onion
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
1/8 tsp. powdered clove
1/8 tsp. powdered ginger
1/2 tsp. basil (can be minced up with the onion)

*I use rice vinegar because white vinegar is made from corn.

Banished is a builder survival game that keeps you entertained for hours on end in much the way that the original SimCity did when it was first released. The game was developed by newcomer software company Shining Rock Software. The quality of the game is rather excellent give that they entire install package is under 100k. The clarity of the graphics and smoothness of gameplay just draws you in in ways that you wouldn’t think possible. And yet with it deceptively simple game play it can be hard as well. Truly a wonderful and addictive game to play.

I had finally played Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe and the one big thing about this game? It is disappointing. The game doesn’t feel like you are like playing Mortal Kombat at all. When I played this game, it feels like I’m playing a Dragon Ball Z game instead of Mortal Kombat. The reason way I said that is because the gameplay runs like from the first Dragon Ball Z Budokai game. That game is old, I can’t stop playing it. Hell! that had better gameplay than this game. This game doesn’t have many activities you can do like Deception and Armageddon did.
