What I'm Playing... Castle Clash

Hey there.  I just haven't had the time recently to get my gaming on.  There are so many great games out there and I just haven't had the time to play them yet.  It's one of the main reasons why I find myself playing more and more mobile games.  I finally realized that playing on your smartphone is a quick fix to get a bit of gaming on.  At this moment, I'm playing Castle Clash.  It has everything that I look for in terms of quick fix gaming.  It has leveling up.  It has power ups.  It has heroes.  It has battles.  It has dungeons.  It has a timer.  The timer is the thing that makes this game work for me.  Unless you want to shell out money to get things done quickly, the timer forces you to put the game down and come back later once your troops or your buildings are done.  You see, every upgrade and troops are allotted a time.  That's how long it will take for it to ready.  A simple troop soldier may take only 20 seconds to be created while a level 9 gold vault could take up to a day.  Having only 2 builders makes your choices all the more critical.  In essence, it's one great time waster.  lol

Pressured by Flump Studios - A Video Game Review

Pressured Game
Can you handle the pressure?
Hey there.  Our friends at Flump Studios have done it again!  Wait.. what?  You don't remember Flump Studios?!  The awesome indie game developer that have provided us with Pester and Super Killer Hornet?  We even had them on our Get a Life podcast for a chat.  Now that you've jogged that memory of yours, let's get into their latest game, Pressured.  Our good friends at Flump Studios provided me with a press copy of their latest PC game and let me tell you, it's ADDICTING!

What I'm Playing... Seed 4 Lord of War

Hey there. Mobile gaming is everywhere now a days. You can play games on your handheld gaming system, smartphone, or tablet.  It's impossible not to be sucked into a complete time waster (Flappy Bird, anyone?) or get immersed in total war with others (Clash of Clans).  So when a mobile game is recommended to me, I always check it out to see if it falls in one of the above categories.  So what's my latest time waster?  Seed 4!  Seed 4 is the 4th installment in the Seed series.  I haven't had a chance to check out the previous three but I have had a chance to play this one and you know what... I'm loving it!

What I'm Playing... Bioshock Infinite Clash in the Clouds

Hey there. I haven't had one of these posts in a while. Sorry. I've been so caught up in so many things that some things slip my mind and before I know it, the week's over. Anyways, ever since the latest DLC for Bioshock Infinite was released, I've been playing Clash in the Clouds non stop. For those of you that are not familiar with the DLC, it's similar to a battle arena where Booker and Elizabeth take on several enemies at once. It may not sound like much at first, but it's the challenge behind the Blue Ribbon challenges that have really captivated me. Sure, I can get through the 60 waves of enemies without a hitch, if I just run and blast my way through enemies. But that's not the point of Clash in the Clouds. The Blue Ribbon challenges is where it's at! Challenges like, "Defeat each enemy with a different vigor." Not bad, right? Oh... but your enemies are 2 HandyMans and a Motorized Patriot. Yeah, good luck. lol  Also, I love that some of the Blue Ribbon challenges are creative too. "Defeat a Handyman while he's charging the sky lines." "Defeat the Siren before she raises the dead." I simply live for a challenge and right now I'm enthralled into this fight and giving it my all.

What I'm Playing... Pushmo

Hey there.  This weekend, I had the pleasure of hanging out with Donkey Kong at the LA Zoo.  I haven't had a chance to post about it just yet, but that post should go live within the next day or so.  While there, I got to play Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D for the Nintendo 3DS.  It's a great game, by the way, but while I was playing, it got me thinking of some of the other titles that I have on the 3DS.  Specifically, titles that I have received from the Nintendo eShop.  That place is a gold mine for great games!  The lastest one that I received?  Pushmo!!!!

What I'm Playing... Magnetic by Nature

Hey there.  I know I haven't posted a What I'm Playing post in quite awhile.  To be quite honest, I've been stuck playing Bioshock Infinite (read my thoughts on the game here) for the past couple of weeks and I don't see myself stopping until I earn most of the achievements!  lol  I've gotten through the game, but I've spent quite a bit of time I'm battlimg my way through 1999 mode.  Anyways, in between my bouts with the HandyMan and Sirens, I'll jump on the Xbox Live Marketplace and play an indie game or two.  The most recent one I've gotten?  Magnetic by Nature.

What I'm Playing... Kersploosh!

Hey there.  Do you member a time when it fun to toss a rock?  Whether it be trying to knock over a tin can or trying to get it to skip across water, as a child, the most mundane of objects could become an afternoon of fun.  That is the first thought that came to my head to moment I started playing Kersploosh!, on the Nintendo 3DS.  The good people at Nintendo provided me a copy of the game and I am thankful that they did.  The family and I have been taking turns trying to 1 up each others times, and even though there are many big name downloads on the Nintendo eShop, Kersploosh! is one of those rare gems that the whole family can enjoy together.  Well, let's get into it, shall we?

What I'm Playing... Mutant Mudds

Hey there.  You know, I love playing on the Nintendo 3DS.  It's an extremely convenient way to get my gaming on when I'm on the go or when I don't have too much time on my hands.  But you know what the absolute best part about it?  Some of the games made for the 3DS are short, challenging, and fun.  And that is where Mutant Mudds falls in.  Our good friends at Nintendo were kind enough to provide a copy of the game to me to check out.  Like with Mighty Switch Force, Mutant Mudds is simple to pick up and play but offers a unique challenge as well as a moderately high replay value.  So let's get to it!  Let's take a look at the game, Mutant Mudds.

What I'm Playing... Mighty Switch Force

Hey there.  So what has Metallman's thumbs and fingers busy these past few weeks?  Mighty Switch Force by WayForward Technologies for the Nintendo 3DS!  Our good friends at Nintendo provided me with a copy of this great action/puzzle game I haven't been able to put it down.  From what I have been told, there are other Switch Force games out there but this is my first time playing any game in the series and I would like to think that it's one of the best.  So let's take a look at the game, Mighty Switch Force.

A New Series! What I'm Playing...

Ugh!  Get off me, zombies!!!
Hey there.  I'm going to start a new series.  I don't think I've started a new one since my "Thoughts on..." series.  I've gotten much positive feedback on that series and I'm extremely grateful.  So now, I bring you guys my, "What I'm Playing..."  series.  This series is NOT a review and will be different from my Thoughts On series.  See... here's the thing...  I play a lot of video games.  Being a blogger, I tell myself that I will post my thoughts on it when I have a moment.  That moment comes and goes and the blog post is never started.  Before I know what happened, I'm already 4 games ahead of what I planned on writing about and feel overwhelmed and ultimately... none of the games get their own post.
