Luna’s Rankings: Favorite Overwatch Characters!

Happy Tuesday! It’s been 2 months of a break from blogging but I am getting back into the swing of things. If you recall, Tuesdays are the Rankings day for GamersUnitedGG. The Rankings posts are where I will provide my favorites in ascending order from 5th place to 1st providing my personal reasons for the rankings. This is a community discussion section so feel free to rank your favorites in the comments below and the following week I will tally the Community votes to provide a Community Ranking. Power up Players and welcome to Luna’s Rankings!

Today we are Ranking: Our Favorite Overwatch Characters!

 

#5- Pharah

pharah

Pharah is an offensive character and the very first character that I tried when playing Overwatch. Pharah has boosters and a rocket which is all I needed to get hooked. I love being able to hover in the air, boost jump behind someone and fire my rockets. Pharah is such a fun character to play and when she uses her ultimate “Justice Rains From Above!” I’m not good with Pharah but I don’t care, she’s soooo fun to play with lol

 

#4 – Moira –

moira

Moira is a support character that provides heals and damage. What I like about Moira is that she reminds me of Hel from Smite. She has her hearing and damage state which is fun to play with. When I need to be a healer, I like selecting Moira because I can also through damage orbs at the enemy team to assist in the battle. Moira also has a crazy powerful ultimate where she shoots a hyper beam that damages enemies and heals allies. Moira is really fun and I don’t feel completely useless as a healer (in damage and attack that is lol)

 

#3- Sombra –

sombra

Sombra is a fairly interesting character and she is classified as an Offensive hero. I started using Sombra in a custom match with friends where I was testing out different characters. Sombra is super cool and her hacking abilities can come in handy when you have annoying characters like Junkrat or Reinhardt. Her hack takes away options for the character hit and they can only use their basic attacks. A well timed hack can change the game for sure! Sombra’s other abilities are her invisibility and pistol. Not to mention a group hack Ultimate!

 

#2 Junkrat

junkrat

Point blank period, Junkrat is fun! He’s fairly easy to use so I do recommend him to beginners. His basic attack is a noob tube (hahah Call of Duty lingo) which is a grenade launcher. He also has a bear trap, mines and a Rip Tire that you can control as his Ultimate. Junkrat is fun to play with and 90% of the games will have at least 1 junkrat somewhere. Plus, I have a special place in my heart for villains and Junkrat is definitely a villain or at least an evil scientist with his demented laughs! Oh yeah, Junkrat is a Defensive Hero!

#1 – Orisa –

Orisa

This selection is a surprise to me because Orisa is a Tank Hero and I’ve never really played with a tank in any game. She’s not a full tank character but Orisa has shields to protect the team, a gravitron ray and her Ultimate is the supercharger that buffs damage for your team. Throw down a shield and plop that Supercharger behind it for the best effect. Orisa is easily my favorite character and she is my most useful. I perform best as Orisa and being able to shield my teammates, lay down suppressing fire, use the Gravitron Ray(not sure of its real name lol) to throw enemies off balance or pull them back when they try to take cover and buff my teams damage is the perfect role for me. I still don’t fancy myself a Tank kind of girl, but in the case of Orisa, I’m her number 1 fan!

Those are my rankings for my favorite Overwatch Heroes, what are yours? Feel free to respond with your favorite characters in the comments and I will be sure to update the community Rankings on next Tuesday’s post! Are you currently playing Overwatch? Let’s talk Heroes!

Luna’s Rankings: Favorite Superheroes!

Happy Tuesday Novas and thank you for reading today’s Rankings Post! The Marvel Universe has been on fire lately with their box office hits and upcoming triumphs over the DC Universe. On Tuesdays I like to rank items from 5th until 1st on different topics and since Black Panther is releasing on DVD and Blu Ray today, I want to rank my favorite Superheroes  from 5th until 1st place!

#5 Thor –

Thor

Thor makes an appearance on my list because he’s flipping amazing. I love that he uses his hammer in combat. The hammer is versatile and allows him to fly, go super fast and pretty much knock out his enemies. Thor is a god and his full strength of lightning makes him super cool and worthy of the number 5 spot on my list. Thor Ragnarok is my favorite Thor movie to date. Read the review here!

 

#4 Black Widow –

black widow

Black Widow has always been a super cool character to me. I love a story about a hero who didn’t always start off saving the world. She has a very checkered past but she has decided to use her skills in a more helpful way which is awesome. Plus, she’s played by Scarlett Johansson in the Avenger movies, what more can you ask.

 

#3 Wonder Woman –

wonder woman

Before the Wonder Woman movie came out I would have not listed her as one of my top 5 favorite superheroes. Learning her story and delving more into her world has opened my eyes to the character. She’s strong, courageous and willing to follow her heart to help anyone in need. That’s the king of superhero we need!

#2 Black Panther –

null

Black Panther is another hero that was off my radar until the movie hit theaters in February. What I love about T’Challa is that he is a king that wants to help his people survive. He also embraces other cultures and wants to help fight to protect all people. His suit is cool, his movements are great and he has a great supporting cast of characters. You can check out the Spoiler Free Review of Black Panther here!

 

#1 Ironman –

ironman

Ironman has been my favorite superhero for as long as I remember. I love that his character is entirely plausible (you know, if you were a billionaire)/. Ok let’s be honest, most of the list (all of this list lol) is based on the portrayals in Hollywood. Tony Stark as portrayed by Robert Downey Jr. Is a sarcastic, witty and intelligent character that I love watching. I’m not a Superman girl, not a Batman girl but Ironman is my man. Wonder what would happen if Batman met Ironman, check out their TKO Battle by clicking here!

Those are my top 5 superheroes, what are yours? Which Superhero movies are you looking forward to? Let’s talk heroes!

Shoppe Keep 2: First Impressions!

Happy Friday gamers and friends! It’s been awhile since I have posted a First Impressions game review so if you are new around here or need a refresher, here’s how these posts work! My First Impressions post is an overview of a new video game that I have started playing. I will provide my thoughts and hopes for the game after about a week of gameplay. Power Up Players for a First Impressions Video Game Review!

Title: Shoppe Keep 2

Developer: Strange Fire

Publisher: Excalibur Gamers

Release Date: May 3rd, 2018

Platforms: PC

Price: $12.99

Shoppe Keep 2 is a game where you are running a Medieval Shop and selling items to the townspeople. This game is currently in Early Access and surprisingly wayyyy more than a shopkeeper price gouging lol. In Shoppe Keep 2 you can receive quests from different townspeople and in return, they will allow you access to crafting or cooking goods to sell in your shop.

Quests:

20180506012332_1

Quests are a huge part of the game. You can unlock different items to purchase from the vendors in town. When you complete the required quests, your rewards are delivered instantly. Quests will require you to explore and collect items for the vendor or to hunt for specific items (as most animals encountered will have the chance of dropping 3 different items).

Realistic Features: I love the inclusions of realistic features such as shoplifters if you leave your store unattended and the taxes that must be paid to the town. That’s right, you can’t just sell your items and get rich! The more money you make off of patrons, the more you have to pay to the bank for taxes. Fear not, these taxes are not paid in vain, learn more on the Putting Your Money to Work section.

Running A Shop:

20180506011100_1

You have complete Customization over your shop. You can choose different tables, pedestals and furniture in which to display items for your patrons. What’s great about the shop is that you can open and close it to customers at your leisure.

Putting Your Money To Work: A great feature of this game is using the taxes to upgrade the town. When you upgrade something in the town such as the Cook’s Shop or the Alchemist, the entire town upgrades as well. For example, we started in a town with dirt roads and wood buildings, after upgrading the Alchemist, the town now has decorations, a stone path and a giant statue.

Multiplayer:

20180506015431_1

You can play solo or play multiplayer where shop keepers will be working together. When playing in multiplayer, you will have joint money with the other pkayers in the game and you can run the shop. What’s cool is that you can send others to complete quests and go hunting while another person keeps the shop running.

 

Final Thoughts: The games has a few bugs and glitches but they have been getting fixed quickly over the past few days. I’m also finding that the developers are adding features and different places to to game each time I log in. This is a great multiplayer game to play with friends and a good way to pass the time if you are playing alone. My original thought was that the replayability is going to be low on the game, but with the new additions, quests and town upgrades I can see this game having great potential after the Early Access.

I give Shoppe Keep 2 3.5 out of 5 Power Ups!

What do you think of the game? Have you played Shoppe Keep 2? What games are you currently playing? Do you recommend any games for me to play? Let’s talk video games and first impressions!

WWE May Slamcrate: The Grandest Stage Unboxing!

Happy Friday Superstars! Thank you for tuning into this month’s WWE Slamcrate unboxing, featuring the theme: The Grandest Stage! In the last unboxing I mentioned that this crate would feature WWE SuperStars like Seth Rollins, Stone Cold Steve Austin and AJ Styles! Let’s see what we received in this Wrestlemania themed Crate (that actually came ino time this month lol)!

What I love about the Slam Crates is that you always received some notable items. The real value in the crates are the high quality T-shirts and figures. This month’s T featured my favorite wrestler of all time…AND THAT’S THE BOTTOM LINE!

20180503_101156.jpg
Because Stone Cold Said So!

I have already worn my Stone Cold T and I’m happy to add him to my collection of WWE shirts. Great job Lootcrate!

I give the shirt an A+ ranking!

To go along with apparel, we received the Phenomenal AJ Styles Socks! Not too shabby if I don’t say so myself lol. 20180503_101251.jpg I will probably keep these packaged for awhile until I visit my next Live WWE event. Then, I’m sure to break them out with the rest of my WWE attire.

I give the socks a B+ ranking!

Since we are still dressing, the next item received is this awesome Universal Title Fanny Pack!  20180503_101303.jpg If you remember last year’s unboxing (click here to view), we received the WWE World Title Fanny Pack and I used it during Wrestlemania. I remember being at the WWE Fan event and EVERYONE stopping me to ask where I bought the fanny pack. I was sad to tell them, that it was the Slamcrate, you couldn’t purchase one haha. I know the Slamcrate creatives tried to mask the high demand for these by creating the Universal title counterpart, but the novelty has already wore off for me.

I give the title a C+ Ranking!

My figure! This series of 4 WWE Superstars is named Statement Makers! We started with Sasha Banks, the Finn Balor and now my husband Seth Rollins takes his place on my display shelf.

There are 3 variations of the figure, so I’m super happy that I have received the gray and black version.

This one’s easy, I give the figure an A+++++++++++ Ranking lol.

Lastly we have the collectible pins. In the WWE Slamcrates, the pins have been titles in the WWE.  20180503_101310.jpg The new Tag titles are the star of this box and makes the final item in my crate. The Tag Titles are dope and I’m happy to add it to my collection.

I give the pin a B Ranking!

20180503_101406.jpg

That’s this month’s crate! I can say that the number of items have seemed to dwindle down from the beginning, but we are receiving better quality items. This is not my favorite crate, but it was pretty decent and still worth the price just by the shirt and figure alone. Next month’s crate will feature the Braun Strowman figure that will complete my 2nd set of WWE Superstars!
