SimCity Buildit – Utterly Boring Game?

We be bias. No one has ever been hunting in our lives, so maybe we aren’t qualified to judge the quality of games like EA’s latest contribution to the canon, SimCity Buidlit. All we can tell you is that the game has mediocre graphics, poor sound, stability problems, an awkward premise and a whole lot of standing around. It may be utterly realistic, although the lack of any falling damage and the fact that wooly rhinos can magically sprint up sheer cliff walls make us doubt it. Sure it’s free-to-play, but could actually buy you a fun game.

There’s a reason these hunting games keep coming out: Someone, somewhere actually buys them. While we don’t want to downplay the significance of a genre that has brought virtual cans of buck urine to the gameworld, the fact is that a lot of people find these games compelling — but not us.

SimCity Buidlit uses a standard point system to gradually increase the difficulty. Players begin with 100 points and can spend them across a variety of categories. Some of the tougher cities are off limits to the rookie, as are the powerful tools and dangerous challenges. There are also miscellaneous accessories such as the indispensable radar, camo, cover scent and double ammo, some of which reduce the amount of points earned by making the hunter’s job easier.

Once in the field, there are really two different styles of play that can be employed. The first kind has players running like lunatics across the landscape, chasing a little red dot on the radar. This usually results in endless minutes of tedium as faster and smarter animals simply run away. The second, less stupid but not much more fun, way is to stay quiet and low to the ground, cover your scent and make a few enticing calls, in the hopes that big game will stray your way. When the decisive moment of kill actually happens, Carnivores can be pretty fun, but the basic wait-and-see dynamic just didn’t entertain us.

There were some moments of genuine fun, like when we were creeping up behind a wounded rhino when some eerie bird call broke the silence and made us jump. Or there was a time when a missed rifle shot caused a smilodon to sprint 50 yards in a few leaps and rip our innards outwards. It was actually pretty cool.

But these sorts of moments are few and far between in Carnivores. If we were hunting more exotic or fictitious animals with futuristic, space-age weapons across an eldritch and colorful landscape, then we could recommend this game. But it is just too boring and ordinary. Much of the game involves sitting still and being quiet, two things we try to avoid by playing videogames.

Graphically, SimCity Buildit is utterly generic. Bland, low-res textures sit under a boring sky as pixilated bushes hide poorly modeled animals. During the dawn the game looks ordinary, and occasionally we would walk into a valley rustling with life that was actually interesting to look at, but the game’s graphics were undoubtedly toned down so that it could play on as many PCs as possible. This is a sound financial decision, but it doesn’t do much to draw us into the experience. Aurally, some of the sound calls were interesting, but the developers couldn’t be bothered to include the sound of your boots crunching through the snow. This is especially surprising considering that it is crucial for players to know how much sound they are making.

It’s that kind of strange omission that makes us wonder who the game is aimed at. It’s not pretty and fun enough to attract hardcore gamers, nor does it strike us as realistic enough to attract the hunters. It’s only a budget title, so gamers aren’t risking a whole lot in picking it up, but we’d rather play Diamond Mine for free than most “low cost” titles. SimCity Buildit may be one of the most entertaining of the hunting titles, but that’s the same kind of distinction of being the tallest building in Topeka, Kansas.

Jumping Back in with Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

POkemon ORAS

Pokemon is really a game that needs no introduction. You are a trainer, you got to catch them all, you know the drill. Let us see if Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire would be a knock out or not very effective.

Just like any other Pokemon games, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire start with the basics. You are trainer, and you got a lengthy Pokedex to fill up, some badges to go through and a rival. Additionally, you will be investigating mega evolutions – a game feature that has started in the last title, Pokemon X and Y. This is a new type of evolution that happens during battle, something new to what we have been accustomed with the typical evolutions. If you a Charizard in the game then you can transform it into a badass dragon type Pokemon with mega evolutions using mega stones. It is like saying, its morphine time (like that of the power rangers) when the trainer hits the button for the mega evolution.

Of course, there is no hero without villains right? This time around with Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire you will be dealing with Team Aqua and Team Magma (depending on which version you are going to play with). And it is really one of the nicest experience beating these villains in the game. Well, aside from becoming the Pokemon League winner and beating the Elite 4 and of course, your rival. The story lasts around 30 hours of gameplay. As far as my experience goes with the game, it will definitely give you what your money’s worth. Not to mention, you will be getting a postgame content that will surely make consume another couple of hours for your entertainment.

Pokemon Omega Ruby and Pokemon Alpha Sapphire Rom and emulator are basically remakes of the original 2002 Nintendo Gameboy Pokemon game, thus, you will be getting authentic Ruby and Sapphire experience but with the added features and far more advanced presentation making it more fun. You will also be getting additional number of Pokemons on the list. If you haven’t played X and Y, then you probably will be having somewhat a hard time getting to know with the new Pokemons. However,  the more you play the game, the easier for you to get to know them.

Overall, Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire can be enjoyed by long time fans of the franchise and if you have been away for a while, this is the perfect point to jump back in.
