As soon as you open the game, you’re graced with interesting facts. Facts such as bee’s typically travel in flight for about 3km (about 6ft in distance) at a time or their common enemies such as bears or parasites.

 

The object of the game is to collect pollen for your hive, in hopes you will restore natural order. Bee’s greatest enemy is mankind. Pesticides and damage caused to forests and their natural environments. This game definitely seems to be in hopes of raising awareness on our ever growing chance at loss of their existence. Millions of colonies have been destroyed over time. They throw these facts at you to gain your affection and concern for the real life bee population itself.

You’ll achieve bee vision after following your first few quests subjected by your guide, Alice.  Bee vision will help you see different flowers in different colors. The varying colors are to indicate the rarity of a flower and its pollen. The game will send you on quests to collect certain amounts from each type of flower. Doing so unlocks other power enhancements to use as you progress. You then will head back to your hive to contribute the pollen you’ve so hopefully collected.

Bee Simulator

I found the most enjoyable part of the game is the flying itself. It truly does feel as if you’re a bee trying to make it’s way in our ever changing world.

Along your journey, you’ll encounter other bugs such as wasps, where you’ll have to fight following a meter method of pressing x and y in the correct and timely order. Doing so secures your success in your battle.Overall, I have found this game to actually be quite appealing. The art design and graphics borderline on a realistic approach as well as a cartoon likability. Great for kids or players favoring in indie or simulator games alike. The guides are easy to follow but not too easy where it doesn’t raise some sort of challenge. I personally was impressed and do recommend the game to anyone trying to fill their time with some simple yet fun gaming experience.

PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro
By Jonathan Pate / Blog / / 0 Comments

It’s official! The end of Sony’s fourth-generation is drawing to an end, and its successor is landing at the end of 2020. The PlayStation 5 might still be far away, but the rumours about the console are rife already, and the company is confirming some of them. 

Earlier this year, Sony’s PlayStation’s lead architect and console producer, Mike Cerny, announced that Sony is working on the successor to the PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro. From hardware to games, here is everything you need to know about the next-generation PlayStation Console.

Name & Release Date

In a new blog post, Sony has officially confirmed that its next-gen console will be called the PlayStation5 and that it will be released in 2020. Coming to the specifics of when it will be released, Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan,during an interview, confirmed that the PlayStation would launch in Holiday 2020, which is between October and December.

PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro

PS5 Specs

In the interview with Wired, Mark Cerny revealed that the PS5 would feature a bespoke 9-core AMD chipset based on third-generation Ryze architecture, with a GPU taking the best bits of the Radeon Navi GPU family. It will also come with SSD storage. The promise from this trio of hardware is fast load times, large bandwidth capabilities and oodles of graphics grunt. 

Going further, the AMD one-two punch of CPU and GPU unlocks the powers of ray tracing, which is an ultra-realistic lighting technology that was first made popular by Nvidia’s RTX cards. In case you’re wondering, ray tracing is an advanced technique for adding realism to an image. Because it requires enormous computational resources; it is often used in Hollywood, especially big-budget CGI spectacle. 

While it’s been confirmed that the specs will outperform current generation consoles, there are rumours that the PS5 will still have less power than recent high-end PC graphics cards. Another thing that has remained a mystery is the look of the console as Sony has been silent on it, fuelling speculations.

PS5 Controller 

According to Sony, the PS5 will come with its own controller, but the official name hasn’t been disclosed. It will include haptic feedback to replace the “rumble” technology with a broader range of more realistic feedback. The goal is to improve the controller’s feedback so you can be immersed while playing games. Sony also announced that the new-gen consoles would also feature adaptive triggers which will allow developers to program the resistance of the triggers to simulate actions more correctly. 

8K support – with caveats 

Unlike the PS4 Pro which maxes out at 4K, the PS5 will support 8K graphics which will allow for more detailed textures and much larger ones at that. Of course, that will be dependent upon streaming formats and sources catching up as next-gen consoles won’t automatically upgrade the performance of the latest gaming PCs. 

PS 5 games 

We can’t be certain about what games to expect as developers are remaining tight-lipped about whether they have PS5 devkits in hand while the company is also refraining from commenting on the subject.

PS5 Price 

So far, there’s been no official announcement on how much the PS5 will cost, but analysts predict that the system will launch for $499. It’s possible that the price could even go higher. 

All in All

The next console generation is just about a year away, but the excitement is building up already. Be sure to visit our blog regularly as we will drop new developments about PS5 as they unfold.

Senran Kagura
By Jonathan Pate / Blog / / 0 Comments

Whats up gamers, I hope you are ready because it has just been announced that we are getting a release for Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash is getting a North American release. I think it goes without saying that this will absolutely be a contender for game of the year up against the Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild and Persona 5. THis entry in the legendary series will be a third person shooter instead of other weird crap.

Senran Kagura got its start on the Nintendo 3DS by creator Yamaguchi Sakaguchi. The idea was spawned by his love of breasts, When 3D gaming was coming into existence he knew that this would be the best move. The game has since sold over a million copies on multiple platforms from 3DS, PS VITA to PC. The latest game in the series Senran Kagura Estival Versus was rated number one game based around anime girls breasts in the world and continues to sell copies in every continent on the planet.

Peach Beach Splash will be released in the No shirt No Shoes All service in North America on November 4th, 2017. You need to pick this title up, I cannot stress this enough.

Nintendo Switch Console

The Switch is Nintendo’s long awaited console that was advertised as being up to par with the Xbox One and Playstation 4. Did the system live up to its huge hype, however? The answer to that depends solely on who you ask. Specification wise, the Switch still has larger shoes to fill when it comes to its Sony and Microsoft competitors. On the Nintendo Switch, the video displays in 720p on its handheld screen and 1080p when actually connected to the television set. The base memory is a mere 32 gigs, but is expandable. 1080p is of course HD, but Sony and Microsoft have released the Xbox One S and Playstation 4 Pro that can be displayed in 4k if your television is compatible. So, in that regards the Nintendo Switch is still lacking. There is a redeeming factor though that is very important: the price of the system. The system itself starts at $300 plus tax. Three hundred dollars compared to upwards of five and six hundred dollars is definitely a plus. Another huge factor to consider when thinking about what console to purchase is the mobility of the Nintendo Switch. As advertised, the Switch gamepad can actually be taken off its docking station and carried around and played as though it were a fully handheld console. This mobility allows for more exposure in more areas of clientele and various age groups. There is a launch title called “1-2 Switch” that is available. This game fully encompasses what the mobility was aimed towards: multiplayer mini-games. It’s almost comparable to the ever so popular “Wii Sports.” For myself, personally, a huge deal breaker involved the exclusives the console has/will have to offer. Such as, you probably guessed it, Zelda: Breath of the Wild.  If there is one category of games Nintendo has proven to be experts in, it’s puzzle RPG’s. Zelda being just that. Unlike other games in its franchise however, Breath of the Wild is an immersive free roam RPG that still has the puzzle elements that fans of the series love. However, the title is also offered for Wii U if players do not want to purchase an entire console for one game. The popular video game stores sell all the latest versions of NES Nintendo Console. Overall, the Nintendo Switch has pros and cons like any other system but are quite popular among the people, who love to play video games.

Overall Rating: 8.5/10

Pros: Affordability, Mobility, Exclusive titles

Cons: Not as beefy as its rivals, the screen display is rather large and easily breakable, no pushing of the envelope game wise

NES classic edition

Gobble Gobble fellow gamers, it is almost thanksgiving here at Play and Talk and we could not be more excited to spend the holidays with our families. Unless you have been living under a rock for the past year, you know that on 11/11 of the great year of 2016 the NES classic edition has been released. The NES classic edition is a miniature version the Nintendo entertainment system preloaded with 30 great games all run through beautiful HDMI. The only issue is those greedy bastards at Nintendo are hoarding the NES classics for themselves refusing to let anyone come into their troll cave to play their system. For those of you who were lucky enough to get one, you are blessed with some of the best games Nintendo has ever put out such as mike tyson’s punch out, Mario and ninja gaiden. If you were not able to secure one you will have plenty of chances in the future when Nintendo re supplies the stores for Christmas. This is how we know the Illuminati is alive and well and they made beetlejuice.
