30 Day Challenge Gamers Edition: Day 3!

Happy Saturday Novas! I’m continuing on with the 30 day gamers challenge in which you create a blog post each day for the topic assigned. If you want to follow along, check out my first post here!

Day 3 – A game that is underrated

An underrated game is one that many people are over looking. Our friend thero159 posted their topic today in regards to a game on Steam. Click here to read their post. My pick for an underrated game would be the video game Skyforge. Skyforge was released for free on PS4 in April. My friends and I have been playing it non stop. For my response to today’s post, I want to shine some light on the video game Skyforge on PS4. I’ve been meaning to post a video game review of Skyforge for awhile now so I’d like to present a condensed version of the game now.

Skyforge is an MMORPG game that allows the player to customize their character and complete levels in order to upgrade. You start off with a choice of 1 of 3 classes and find out that you’re not like most people. You’re sort of, well you’re immortal! Now you must develop your powers and help save different worlds. You have the The Cryomancer (Damage), Paladin (Tank) and the Light Binder (Support) roles to start. There are 13 classes in total that you can unlock and you can switch between classes depending on the missions you are completing. With any MMORPG, you are also able to Here’s some game-play that I have recorded for the game. Personally, I love playing with the Cryomancer.

Currently there are about 10 different worlds in which to explore. Each world will have different levels and missions for you to journey through. After unlocking additional missions, you can start upgrading your character’s traits and strength. As you play each level, you gain followers which add to your power in the games. It’s funny, you can find followers in random corners on the levels. Β  This game is fantastic as there’s so much to experience. You can play different classes, play PVP, try your hand at world events and even team up for Raids. Each level will also contain at least 1 boss to fight. I say “At Least” because there may be levels where you must fight multiple bosses in order to complete the mission. If you are playing with friends, if you all die then the mission restarts.

That’s a quick over view of the Skyforge game. Look for it in your PlayStation Store! I may actually compile a full video game review for this game in the future (after I beat the main story).

Although this post is not a full review of the Skyforge game, I will still provide my top reasons to “Play” or “Skip” this game.

Play:

  • Hours upon hours of entertainment
  • Character customization, stats and abilities
  • Ease of changing and trying out new classes
  • Different game modes to choose from

Skip:

  • Grind heavy (you have to complete many missions to gain enough money to unlock different classes and costumes).
  • Can be repetitive (you will have to play the same levels in order to complete the different missions and contracts).

That’s it for today’s daily challenge post. What are some video games that you feel are underrated? Have you ever played Skyforge? Let’s talk video games!

Day 1 Question: Your 1st Video Game:

My Very First Video Game that I can remember has to be either Tetris, Dr. Mario or Duck Hunt. Tetris is an amazing game of stacking different shaped blocks as they fall on the screen. The goal is to not let your blocks reach the top of your screen (come on you all remember Tetris, Right?). tetris

Dr. Mario was a classic game of matching the colors on the pills to get rid of them. Similar to Tetris, your goal is to not let your falling pills stack up and reach the top of the screen. Now that I think about it, this game was pretty creepy. Dr. Mario is basically an illegal pharmacist mixing medications lol. Dr_mario_screenshot

Duck Hunt was a game for Super Nintendo in which you, well you shoot ducks. It came with this gnarly orange and gray gun that you would point and shoot at the screen. Tons of fun with Duck Hunt.

Day 2 Question: Your Favorite Character.

It’s funny, the Day 2 question I just answered this morning on the Shameful Narcissist’s blog lol.Β My favorite video game character of all time would have to be Yoshi! Yoshi was the man! He was green, could turn people into eggs and a great maneuver-er on Mario Kart! I would always select Yoshi if he hadn’t been taken and wreak havoc!!!! I remember playing Mario Party 4 on Gamecube with my brother and his friends. I was the champion always winning in Castaways and the basketball mini games. Β Β Yoshi-o Every game I would pick Yoshi, my brother would select Toad, his friend would pick Waluigi and my friend would pick Peach. Great times. Some other characters I love are the Arbitor from Halo (He’s AWESOME!) and Baird or Cole Train from Gears of War!Β  I guess it would also depend on the game. If we’re playing street fight Chun-Li is bae and in Mortal Kombat Scorpion or Sonya Blade are my go to’s. Well Cinder was pretty awesome as well. The best thing about being a gamer is that you don’t have to choose your favorites! You can play with all of the characters and still have fun.

Thank you for checking out this second post today. What are your 1st games and favorite characters? Let’s talk gaming!
