Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Impressions!


San Andreas is a game close to my heart. I have a copious amount of nostalgic memories associated to the title, and it remains my favourite entry in the Grand Theft Auto title to date.

In today’s post. I’ll be sharing my first impressions of the remastered title!

Rainbow Six: Extraction – First Impressions!

This was a title that I was initially excited to play. I am a fan of Rainbow Six: Siege, and thoroughly enjoyed the event that this game was based off.
The title was available from release on the Game Pass, so I played that version; here are my first impressions of the game.

This isn’t a full review; I need more time with it.

When I first started playing, I partnered up with 2 friends and we jumped head first into the game. We struggled a fair bit, but I’m chalking this up to not approaching the game with the typical Rainbow Six Siege style of tactical gameplay in mind.

You start with a limited roster, and I lost 4 of my operators rather quickly. It is possible to get them back via extraction missions if you return to the hot zone, but we struggled to complete those, even losing another operator in the process.

I have since played solo and I’ve found it to be a more enjoyable experience. I’m still learning the ins and outs of the game, but I have managed to get a few of my missing operators back, and I’ll more than likely make that a priority before delving further into the games content.

As I mentioned earlier, you start with a limited amount of operators, but you can unlock others as you progress. You can also upgrade their equipment, unlock new guns, and cosmetics. I like this aspect of the game. Starting with the bare minimum really adds to the tension in the gameplay.

So far, I like this game. It’s got enough there to keep you going for a while, but it could become repetitive over time, especially if you have to spend your time returning to previous areas for lost operators, or grinding for experience to unlock items that you want.


Have you played this game? What are your thoughts so far?

The Sims 4: Breed Out The Weird/Ugly Challenge

One of my favourite things to do in The Sims 4 are challenge playthroughs. The 100 baby challenge is a challenge I have done numerous times, so I looked into the other challenges that other creators have made.
While I’m not a fan of the name of this challenge, I wanted to try a generational challenge. 

Of course, people cannot change their appearance naturally, and beauty is subjective. 
The rules are listed here.

Back 4 Blood BETA Thoughts!

Back 4 Blood is an upcoming multiplayer first person shooter developed by Turtle Rock Studios and published by Warner Bros Interactive Studios. 
The title was created by the creators of the first Left 4 Dead game, and feels like a spiritual successor to the Left 4 Dead series.

I was an avid fan of the Left 4 Dead games on the Xbox 360, so I was excited when this title was announced. There hasn’t been any console content for the games, so having a game made in the same vein being released by the original creators caught my attention immediately.

 I played the BETA on the Xbox One!
