Games reviews 2

Now that I have an XBOX 360, I have quite a few new games I play. Here are my favourite.

Call Of Duty Ghosts

ghosts

 

 

 

 

 

COD Ghosts is one of my favourite games, but now I’ve got Destiny I don’t  play it as much. Currently, on online, I am a prestige 4 level 31. I would rate Ghosts a 9.

Minecraft

Minecraft is basically an infinite game. You can make nearly anything out of 100s of blocks. You can choose creative mode, to build huge buildings and contraptions. Or you can choose survival mode and attempt to survive with just a map and progress to being rich with diamonds. I would also rate minecraft a 9.

FIFA 14

The two main parts of FIFA 14 that I play are pro clubs and ultimate team. They are very fun to play. I can’t wait till FIFA 15. I would rate FIFA 14 a 9.5.

Destiny

destiny

 

 

 

 

 

Destiny is definitely my favourite game at the moment, I am a level 11 warlock at the moment. The graphics are amazing and the game play is even better. I really like the fact that there is an online campaign, because then I can play with my friends and one, who is a level 20, can level me up quicker by doing harder levels. Even going to the tower is fun, and its just supposed to be for getting free things for doing missions. I would rate it 10.

 

 

New Edit

I have now got some new games.

COD Advanced Warfare:

At first I thought it was rubbish but then I started to enjoy it. I love the idea of supply drops and getting alternate versions of weapons. My favourite gun is the IMR – Feedback. 9.5/10

FIFA 15

I was extremely disappointed when I found out they removed pro clubs for Xbox 360 and PS3. I don’t play it much because it gets boring. 6/10

WWE 2K15

I got this game fairly recently because my friend got it for his birthday and he said it was really fun. It is a very enjoyable game and the creation part is so much better than other games I have played. 9.5/10

 Destiny

I have now had a lot more experience of destiny. I have a warlock, titan and hunter all at level 32. My favourite is probably the titan. I am really looking forward to the house of wolves expansion, especially if it means I can upgrade my fatebringer. Still 10/10.

Lua programming

Lua is a programming language like C, but it’s a lot easier to learn. Lua is one of the simplest programming languages and was made in 1993. Me and my dad have started to learn it and we’re really enjoying experimenting with it.

We made a simple ‘guess the number’ game. Even though Lua is a lot simpler than C, it was still quite hard to create it. Firstly, the random number function didn’t work so we had to call it twice and add a seed which was, in this case, the time in seconds. The reason for this was because the random number was only random once because its starting number (seed) stayed the same each round. Next, the random number stayed the same because the seed didn’t change much when it was the time. Therefore, we had to call the random number again to make it random enough (nothing is totally random).

It looked like this (I have included a screenshot from SciTe which is a Lua editor because WordPress cannot highlight Lua code properly):

--[[  Guess the number game, by Jeevan

computer thinks of a number between 1 and arg[1]
if no arg then 1 to 100
computer asks user "guess my number"
it then tells the user whether the computer's number is higher or lower (or equal) than the guess
once guessed computer tells user the number of guesses

]]--

-- variables
local maxNumber, theNumber, userGuess, numTries

numTries = 0

-- check arguments
if (#arg == 1)
then
maxNumber = tonumber(arg[1])
else
maxNumber = 100
end
-- check we actually got a number
if (maxNumber == nil or maxNumber <= 1 or maxNumber > 1000000)
then
print("That was not a valid number (for this game), using default of 100")
maxNumber = 100
end

math.randomseed(os.time())
theNumber = math.random()
theNumber = math.random(maxNumber) -- the first random() always comes back the same or is predictable even with randomseed, so we use the 2nd one
print("I thought of a number between 1 and " .. maxNumber .. "; can you guess it?")

repeat
userGuess = tonumber(io.read())
numTries = numTries + 1

if (userGuess == nil or userGuess < 1 or userGuess > maxNumber) -- check we actually got a number
then
print("That was not a valid number (but it does count as a go so be careful fat fingers).")
elseif (userGuess < theNumber)
then
print("Higher")
elseif (userGuess > theNumber)
then
print("Lower")
end

if (numTries == 5 or numTries >= 10)
then
print ("Come on, you're rubbish at this game.")
end

until userGuess == theNumber

print("You got it in " .. numTries .. " goes.")

 

Sorry, BBC (but not much)

Looks like I owe BBC an apology, they ANNIHILATED the OFAH (Only Fools and Horses) video from yesterday’s post. Apparently, it’s copyright infringement to have a short clip of a programme. However, there are 32,900 OFAH videos on YouTube that haven’t been NUKED. So stop picking on a 10 year old fan, BBC – please don’t sue me, I’m sorry (but not much).

I’m gonna make an animation of that video so that I can share it without being exploded by BBC’s tactical nukes.

The Most Amazing PES Match

I know I have already done a post about an amazing PES match, but that had only 15 goals; this game had 104 goals!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m not lying, seriously! This did happen. What actually happened was I played as ‘Jeevan’s Team’ against the worst team ever, ‘The Best Team’. It’s not actually the best. I played a 30 minute game. It ended 104-00 to me! I bet you can’t beat that, if you do, tell everyone in the comments.104-0 1 104-0 2

New Song

“Jazz Hands”, the next song I was planning, has been delayed (I can’t find which computer I saved it on).  Instead, I composed a completely different song.  It’s called “Nebula”.  This is my first full-length song as it is over 4 minutes (unlike my first song “a alien or sutin” which was only 2 minutes). I called it “Nebula” because the song reminded me of space. I made a video by collecting together pictures of nebulae and then ordering them into my top 25.

The song will be on my album “Flower Power Rangers”.

My First Music Video

“A Alien or Sutin 👽” is now on Youtube!  I made the amazing video using the great Windows Movie Maker (it’s free software and really easy to learn). I made the images using Gimp of course. Altogether, it took 2 hours to make the video (I think the song took 3 hours to make – but I did it over a month).

The next song coming in my album (“Flower Power Rangers”) will be called “Jazz Hands” (I’m working on it now). As you can probably tell, the song will be jazz. Also, I have a brand new keyboard!

 

My First GarageBand Song

I have finally made a song on GarageBand.  I thought of doing this song when I heard an apple loop (the rock guitar in the background from 1:00).  The rest of the instruments I added by using Smart Drums. I have now published it on Soundcloud. It is called “A Alien Or Sutin 👽” (the alien doesn’t show up in the title on Soundcloud). Here it is:
