Injustice: Gods Among Us is actually really good. This game is a fighting game, but the story is more entertaining. The story is about how Superman lost his family in Metropolis when Joker blew up the city. Batman was trying to get the informant from, but Superman didn’t care. He wanted revenge. So Superman ripped out the Joker’s heart.

The-Iron-Giant-1999-Cover-ArtThere were many great animated films in the 1990s, but this has to be one of the best. Set during the Cold War, at the time of the launch of Sputnik and rampant McCarthyism, there was much for Americans to fear, especially things that came from unknown sources. In the winter of 1957, one great mystery came to a small town in Maine. Where it came from, we do not know, but this hulking robot had the capacity to learn from one young boy, Hogarth Hughes, about life and death, compassion and fear, and so much more.

Hogarth is a pretty self-sufficient kid. His widowed mother works at a local diner as a waitress, and is often asked to work extra shift. His late father was a test pilot in the Air Force, so science is always on Hogarth’s mind, but when a giant robot falls from the sky one night when Hogarth is watching scary movies by himself, he has to go investigate. He grabs his BB gun, but what he encounters is far beyond belief. After some misadventures, Hogarth and the Iron Giant become friends, and with the help of a local beatnik artist, they keep the secret from the town until a government agent shows up.

When you want to just have some fun or want to instead fight your way through impossible odds then Mass Effect will deliver that for you in spades. In the Mass Effect you are Commander Shepard, an Alliance officer as well as N7 special forces and a candidate for Specter status with the Citadel Council. You are also humanity’s only hope to stop the coming thread from dark space just outside the galaxy, the Reapers. BioWare and Edge of Reality have done a great job of giving us an engaging and entertaining space adventure that will keep you coming back for more.

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.
