Hello Geekers, it's your geek Li, welcome to another post!
I can't believe it's 2017 already! 2016 flew by! I hope you guys like this year's posts, we'll always try to improve on the blog and come up with brand new post ideas just for you guys! If you want to request a post, please feel free to comment down below with your ideas. I'm going to put a song here, here and here (I chose two K-pop songs and a Japanese one, to mix it up a bit). I got three new games from my brother on Christmas (thanks bro S2) and I wanted to share them with you. Let's get started!
Two of these games are for computer and were purchased on the steam app and the other one is a PS3 game which you can buy at your local video game store.
Portal (for PC)
The game basically consists of innumerous puzzles that are solved by teleporting Chell (the character you play as) using portals created by the "Aperture Science Handheld Portal device", a gun that can shoot portals onto flat surfaces.
The portals can be used to teleport objects (weighted cubes and a weighted companion cube) and yourself. By using those objects, you are able to solve some of the puzzles.
weighted companion cube
Glados (Genetic Lifeform and Disk Operating System) is an artificial intelligence which accompanies you. She challenges Chell to solve all the puzzles with a promise that when all is completed, "there will be cake".
Some of the things I like the most about the game is how it makes you think, and how it's such an unusual game. I, at least, have never played anything like it. You should give it a try!
Ori and the blind forest (for PCs)
This game tells the story of Ori and Naru
The game starts with an introduction, showing how Ori was separated from the Spirit Tree during the great storm. Naru, then, welcomes Ori into her life. Naru treats Ori as a son, and they live happily together- that is, until something happens (#nospoilers).
The game has a stunning design, art style, story, soundtrack and gameplay. It's been praised a lot for all of those features. I highly recommend it; if you haven't played it yet, you are missing out on an incredible experience!
LEGO Lord of the Rings
If you like the movies like I do, you'll love this game! Not only is it based on one of the best movies/books ever made, everything is made out of LEGO! This game adds some funny moments to the story, creating hilarious scenes that can only be fully appreciated by true fans of the LotR saga.
It has lots of missions and hidden treasures to collect, and it's a 1-2 players game (the more, the merrier, right?)
So, those were the three games I wanted to share with you. I hope you get a chance to play them sometime! If you do, please leave a comment below with your opinion! Also, comment what you got for Christmas!
Bye-bye guysss. I'll see you next week ^-^
