Rebel Galaxy Review

Rebel Galaxy

Rebel Galaxy came out on Steam in October, but it just recently came out for the PlayStation 4 at the beginning of the month, January 5th.  I had never heard of this game before it came to the PS4 but the opportunity to be a “Space Cowboy” was too much to pass up.  The game played a lot like the naval side of Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag.  You sail the ocean of space in a straight line, not being able to pitch up or down, however your opponents are given that option and the smaller crafts will often fly above and below you, while the larger ships are stuck flying on the same level that you are.  Think of it as a less maneuverable version of the “Freelancer” game.

Rebel Galaxy - 2

Most of this game will be you flying your ship from one end of the solar system to the other, complete a mission and head back across the solar system again.  One of the best way to make money in this game will be doing missions that you can pick up during your stops at different space stations; however, after you jump to the next solar system, you will be able to join the mercenary guild which will give you a lot more money but for a lot more risk of course.  This means you will be going back and forth in one system just to scrounge up enough money to to buy upgrades or new weapons/armors for your ship.  Speaking of the stations, the game will automatically save your game when you visit one so always remember to stop by one before heading off to a difficult mission.  Missions and mercenary work aren’t the only way to make money in this game though.  You can also scavenge for parts scattered around space, which to be honest will probably take the most time since you can barely find cargo floating around, look around the space system for bounties to collect or mine asteroids for goods.  Everything you find can then be sold at the commodities market, but be warned as the price for different goods fluctuates.  Then once you get enough credits to buy the new spaceship you’d been eyeing, you’ll be doing missions, mercenary work, scavenging for parts, hunting down pirates and mining asteroids all over again to get more money for new upgrades.  In other words, you will probably be spending most of your time trying to make enough money to use on your ship than actually going through the games story.

Rebel Galaxy - 3

So is this game fun?  Should you try it out or pass on it?  Well I’ve been having a blast with it myself, though it really depends on if you have the patience to play a game like this.  You won’t be getting into space battle after space battle unless you are actively looking for them.  Most of your time will be flying through the emptiness of space.  For a game created by a two man team, this game is amazing.  Still it would have been better if you could fly up and down because there are times when your enemies or certain asteroids are above or below you that your guns can’t seem to shoot at.

In the end, I give this game a solid 8/10.  The price point of 19.99 may drive off a few customers, but for those who enjoy these types of games, I say go for it.  It’s a good PSN game to pass the time with.

PewDiePie: Legend of the Brofist (Android) Mini Review

So this past week I was browsing the ‘Play Store’ on my phone for something new to play.  I needed something new to play that would keep me busy until Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection comes out next week.  Enter PewDiePie: Legend of the Brofist by Outerminds Inc.  It is a cute little 8-bit platformer.  The game is something like a Mario… or Adams Family for the SNES, except with a bit wonkier controls.  You may find it a bit difficult to control your character while jumping in the air.  The touch-screen is a little sensitive, or at least it was for me.

It’s a short game, something that you could probably beat in one day; if you play on easy mode that is.  Now I’m not a big PewDiePie fan, I’ll admit that I have watched a good number of his videos, however in this game there seems to be references to his videos that only loyal fans will understand.  Friends of his are also in this game as playable characters; if you’re not a fan of playing as PewDiePie, then maybe you’ll like playing as Markiplier… or how about CinnamonToastKen… or Cry?  Personally, I played JackSepticEye all the way through the game once I unlocked him.  Speaking of all these YouTubers, there is also voice acting in this game, which means you get to hear these YouTubers give out some cringe worthy performances.

I know it sounds like I am bashing the game, and that is not what I want to do.  I actually really liked this game.  It’s really really tough on the harder difficulties.  I’ve only beat the first two levels on lvl. 2 difficulty; don’t judge.  If you have $5 to spare, I would recommend this game, and you don’t even have to be a fan of Felix or his friends to enjoy this game.  If you’re looking for a mobile game to pass the time, then this one is for you.  So try it out, have fun, and go ahead and rage while you play it on the harder difficulties.

LOST IN THE SUN – A cultish San Francisco Indie Film

Retrenders - Lost in the Sun - Dan Bernstein - David Moutray - Marcus Sams - Jess Reich

Dan Bernstein (actor), Dave Moutray (director), Marcus Sams (actor) and Jess Reich (make-up)

I feel very fortunate to be one of the crew members of “Lost in the Sun“, a feature film with a mysterious cult happening that takes meditation of body, mind and the discipline of gazing at the sun ritually to transform one’s life. The only catch is that someone has gone missing through the process, and the cult of sun gazers are not exactly your typical sun gazers, and that’s about all I can tell you.
