GameFly Review

Click here for your free month of GameFly

This special review on GameFly is not about video games but about a company that I believe is going to see profits close to Netflix. GameFly is a mail based video game company that allows you to rent video games directly to your house (Netflix for Gamers!). Part of the reason I started writing this blog was to inform gamers about which games not to waste their money on (or even time in some cases).

GameFly is a great resource for gamers who love to play a vast amount of games, but don’t want to pay the full price (usually $60) for every single one of them. Gamefly allows you to rent up to 2 games per month for $22 or 1 game for $15. I honestly think the 1 game for $15 isn’t saving you money and not worth it. The reason being is that the only con to using Gamefly is the slow… slow… slow shipping time compared to Netflix. Gamefly, in some cases, can take up to a full week to receive and ship a game to me when Netflix will do it in 3 days. However, movies only cost $20-$40 depending if you went for Blu-ray while video games are $60 and therefore worth the extra wait.

The picture to my right is how I feel now when I get that email on my phone saying your game has been shipped. Well, maybe not that excited   : )

Not only do I try to quickly run through games and try to score all the achievement points, all day but I often find myself stuck on my GameFly app on my phone, adding games to the que.

GameFly Rates:

Convenience 8/10 GameFly probably saves me an average of $80 per month because I normally would have bought at least 2 games.

Fun Factor 8/10 For $22 a month I can’t think of anything that would provide more entertainment at that cost.

Overall Value 8.5/10 I would normally give this a 9/10 value, but I don’t like the seemingly long waiting for games to be received. If GameFly shortens the wait time to at least 3-4 days instead of 5, I will be a life long customer (that is if they don’t raise the prices like Netflix just did).

Child of Eden Review

Child of Eden Review

Child of Eden is every rave lovers video game dream.
This game is based on visually stunning effects and details, as well as one epic techno play list. I spent a few hours myself searching and downloading the music in Child of Eden. This game was designed for techno loving rave fans that have nothing better to do than trip out on drugs and play these kinds of games. The missiles are called Euphoria bombs, like as if that was original.
Don’t get me wrong, this game does have its perks, such as the graphics are done very well and will give anyone who can’t handle fast flying and flashing images a seizure. I mean just look at the details of this in game screen shot;

How you implement game play into a game based on visually beautiful pictures, a great soundtrack and not copy Dance Dance Revolution is the tricky part.

The game play is quite simple (almost to simple). For kinect users, you use your hand to aim at the target viruses and shoot. With the controller, which is easier but not as fun, you aim with the joystick and button mash A. The enemy, which is a “virus” (orange and pink discolored images), has started to corrupt a data file, known as Eden, which you are sent out to eradicate. The storyline doesn’t really get much more involved than that.

I have to admit, I find myself quite enthralled by the images and music while playing this game, but I was just expecting more in the actual game play.

Child of Eden Rates:

Gameplay 6/10 This game can get old pretty quick once you have seen the detailed graphics a few times and downloaded the sound track.

Graphics 9/10 The graphics are very sharp and make you feel as if you are traveling through a Ravers mind while in Ectasy.

Audio 8/10 The soundtrack is pretty impressive in this game.

Replay Value 5/10 After a quick run through of this game, I doubt you will want to pick it back up again. At least until you forget what the graphics look like, this game is definitely a rent.

What do you ravers out there think about Child of Eden? I’m also wondering what people think about this game if they don’t like listening to techno music (must be unbearable). I however do enjoy techno music and enjoy this video :)
