First time I heard of the name of the game I thought that this is just like American Football but I was wrong, the game is actually a soccer game. Popularly known in the other parts of the world and is almost treated as their religion in terms of being fans outside the United States. One of most popular game is the FIFA series with so many release and the most known would be the FIFA 12 which can be played in a console or in a desktop. It can be played by a single player or can also be a multiplayer with different modes to choose from.

However, Freestyle Football is on whole new different league. In real life, the game is actually just a show off of skills and exhibitions of dribbling the ball. In the game, you can actually use the freestyle skills to score a goal and this is not the only thing that this game separates it from the other games.

The game has this urban themed atmosphere, where you can play the game with just what you are wearing. Customization is just one of the many features of this game. You can decide what will your character be look like, what to wear and what are the skills that you want to have depending on your taste, making it very personal to your preference.

You can play this game online, making the competition in a global scale, where you will meet different people with different preferences in skills and personality. It also has an option for you to use a controller, if you are not used to using the keyboard for gaming, now you can have an edge in a game using your own preferred controller.

The game has different modes to choose from, you can try to train first to familiarize the controls and the skills of the game. You can try out your skills by defeating the AI in scoring mode or the football and futsal mode where you can compete with your friends on a global scale. You can also compete with your friends, be rivals and show off your hidden talents using the freestyle football skills that are available in the game.

Like other sports, teamwork is necessary to win the game and since you are controlling only one character, you and your friends will always be dependent on each other’s skill to win a match, making the game more enjoyable to play. Another key to win is coordination, since you only have one character to control; constant communication is needed to coordinate your team’s next move and win the match.

Freestyle Football is more than a league, its more than just a game of football, with your personal touch; it is more likely you will feel that you are the one that is kicking the ball to the rather than the virtual character that you choose. For more information regarding the game, you check the website of the game athttp://football.gamekiss.com/main.jce to download and play the game. Enjoy!

Freestyle Skills

In every sport there are specific skills that are needed for a player to contribute to the success of his team in a match. Like Basketball which is composed of Guards, Forwards and a Center, each has a specific task to do inside the court. In Freestyle Football, an MMO sport online game, set of skills are needed to win a match. Composed of a Forward, Mid-fielder, Defender and a Goal Keeper, they have specific functions inside the field to perform.

stadium_copy.jpg

Forward is responsible for attacking the goal of the opponent, specific skills that needed are Curve Kick, Diving Header, Sliding Shot and Quick Shot. There are other skills that are needed for receiving and dribbling the ball but since this position is responsible for attacking the goal of the other team, we just highlighted the attacking skills of this position.

Mid-Fielder is responsible for handling the ball and assisting the forward in attacking the opponent’s goal. These mostly involve dribbling and passing skills like Ground Cross, Early Cross, Dodge, Space Pass, Lobbing Pass and Curve Pass.

The Defender rarely seen in the opponent’s side of the court to attack, mainly its responsibility is to defend, and that is to prevent the ball from ever reaching the goal keeper. Skills needed are mostly for tackle and blocking the ball, skills like Bicycle Clear, Overhead Clear, Turning Tackle, Covering, Long SLD Tackle, Grab and Pull and Persistent Tackle.

The Goal Keeper’s responsibility is to keep the goal and prevent the opponent from ever letting the ball go inside the goal. This position in the game is not playable unless the game goes into the penalty round where one of the players will be the goal keeper but as far as a regular match is concern, this position is being played by an AI player. However, you should not underestimate the AI because they are much better keeper of the goal in the game than a regular player.

Above all the skills that we have discussed here, there is one skill that tops it all and that is teamwork. Since this is a group game, teamwork is necessary to win every match and without it you will simply lose a match. You can check the game at www.gamekiss.com

Character Customization

Gears and sport jerseys plays a vital role in recognizing a certain team in any sport. It maintains an orderly appearance of players in every team. In football, the usual gaming gear that players are sporting is a shirt and shorts matched with spiked football shoes and long socks. Some players also wear headbands, wristbands, accessories that not only making the players have their style but also has physical aspect purposes.

Sport jerseys are nice. People even buy sport gears even though some are not really players. But do you know where these uniforms are considered as lame? In games, wearing default uniform is lame. In fact in games, when you are wearing a typical uniform, first impression that reflects your character is it is a noob (Happened to me a lot of times, but I proved them wrong. Ha!). The weirder you look, the better it is.

In Freestyle Football, you can define your fashion statement by choosing in the wide range of selection of items available in the in-game shop. But with a twist, some items available are unconventionally convenient for a football game, like Halloween costumes, unusual helmets like Lego heads, back packs, oversized hand gloves, beach slippers, a rubber ducky tube, or even wear only undergarments. And of course yes, you read this right.

xiBzLr0.pngHere as you see, my FW is wearing stock items that are automatically acquired when you created a new one. He looks like a generic trying-hard-hardcore-football-fan guy. Or a varsity jock that everyone secretly hates. Now I will have him a total make over.

4gFUYZd.pngNow he looks like a football player with those gears, or a member of some k-pop group because of that hair rofl89.gif But the point is he looks a pro footballer already despite the fact he is just level 3.

I feel I can play with other players with this get up. But I like to experiment on his looks more; I found some items very interesting.

X5xmVTv.pngWhere is this guy going? Is he going on a party? Is he seriously wearing those flops and start dribbling the ball? What’s with that bunny gloves? Why is he wearing all of that?

The answer is; why not? There is even an item where your character will wear only undergarment. Weird stuffs are available for your character like rubber ducky tubes and a training tire (the tire is attached on the players’ back) but I didn’t managed to purchase one because some items are acquired when you reached a certain level.

It is really fulfilling to customize your character’s look in any game. But remember that looks is not the primary aspect in gaming; it is the skill and your performance :D

Twisted Metal is a game series developed by 989 Studios, published by Sony Computer Entertainment for PlayStation. The game is a vehicle battle game which is the main goal is to win a tournament called Twisted Metal. The creator of the contest, Calypso, will grant any wish of the winner. It has 8 sequels that started from the first Twisted Metal in 1995 exclusive for Playstation1 up to the latest Twisted Metal 2012 for Playstation3. For this review I will cover my favorite sequel on this series, the Twisted Metal IV for Playstation1. Twisted Metal IV is a huge success in the late 90’s, and is considered as one of the best multiplayer game for PS1 platform.

Story: 8/10

pMzuKKN.jpg

The story is a bit dark. It is about how Sweet Tooth’s success of taking powers and authority from Calypso, the creator of the Twisted Metal tournament. You can appreciate the story if you followed it from the first Twisted Metal, but for gamers that only wants adrenaline rush and the need for crushing vehicles, they are more likely to skip the cut scenes of the game.

Gameplay: 9/10

JDc5HDp.png

The gameplay itself is intense. AI’s are smart, you will find it hard to finish the game without using cheats. You can play Single Player as well as Multi Player as long as you have extra game console controllers. Items are scattered all over the battle arena, it is just a matter of strategy on how you will use the items and hide on blind spots to minimize contact with other players.

Graphics: 8/10

ewhTHvC.png

Considering the year the game was published, we can say that Twisted Metal’s graphics is superior with other PS1 games. But now if you ask if the visuals are appealing, it might make the player vomit. It has so many visual effects that sometimes make your PS1 overheat. From the character design as well as their vehicles, the graphics is truly outstanding for its time.

Music: 10/10

4oiZE26.jpg

In this game I developed my affection for heavy tuned music. A perfect score for me, because it matches and highlights the adrenaline rush action that the game offers. I can’t think of any better music to suit the game. Imagine you are firing ballistic weapons and ripping apart your enemies with your special skills, and then the music is an upbeat pop music? Many players might find it very unacceptable.

3G8T8xK.jpg

The game is a real win even if you play with it again and again. There’s a lot of character available for unlocking every time you finish the game, including the final boss Sweet Tooth. Also, you will get to know each of the character’s ending. Every character has different story endings and it is interesting to know each of them.

Multiplayer: 9/10

Gi36kTu.jpg

Just recently I have learned that it is possible to fight with a set of Twisted Metal players through a networked Playstation1 console, which is a big point for the multiplayer factor. You can play multiplayer on your own console as well on a split screen mode; you can be allies or enemies. It scored almost perfect because the feeling that the game gives on a multiplayer mode is priceless.

Pros:

The game’s adrenaline factor is its major asset. If you are an action-seeking-vehicle-lover-metal-crusher fanatic and a retro gamer, this one is for you.

Cons:

Although this is an evidently great game, only retro players will appreciate it because the gaming console of the platform is phased out.

Overall:

This game left a mark on every Playstation gamer. This is one of the evidence that graphics is not a key reason to play a game, it is the gameplay. Even though the game was phased out, Twisted Metal IV deserves a title as the best vehicular combat game ever made.

Football MMO Gaming Tips

Gp8canA.png

I bet some of you guys played basketball, or any sport game that is not closely related with football. Though most of the MMO sports game requires a harmonized teamwork, in my honest opinion, a football game involves a more extensive team play.

In playing Freestyle Football, evidently the football fans already have the advantage in terms of knowledge and setting up the game play. I’m no football expert, but I can share 5 tips to showcase the football gameplay.

sUWda8C.jpg

1. Play accordingly to your position

It is really challenging to extend your capabilities as a player. Though there are hybrid positions, some of the players seem to overdo their experiments in game play. I saw some Defenders insistently trying their luck in shooting for a goal even though Forwards are in position, waiting for a pass to secure a goal. I’m not saying that DFs can’t shoot goals, but we all know that they are not tailor-made for such move. The result is most of the time, players with this attitude makes the team turn out as the guys who will taste the bitterness of defeat. Have your team mate do his job and vice versa to theirs.

gRfRDgs.png

2. Play more defensively

Though it is a general knowledge in sports gaming, some people seems forget this point. Some players tend to focus on offensive side. Everyone can shoot a goal. But can everyone defend effectively? Anticipate your opponent’s passes. Most of the successful teams I have seen are sporting a solid defensive play. The mere fact that defense is a very crucial aspect to win a game should be in each of the player’s game play list.

nAxFZUo.png3. Communicate with your team mates

Plan your strategies in every ball possession and defense in the wide pitch with your team mates. Constant communication can lessen the misinterpretation of plays and greatly improves team work.

Ks4dFbD.png

4. THIS IS NOT BASKETBALL

It is pretty senseless to put this on the list, but I’ve seen players playing like they are playing a basketball game. No, they don’t dribble using their hand. I saw a lot of players trying to get past to 3 defenders and trying to score for a goal. It seems like they are always attempting to do a highlight reel. Some are asking for a “speed pass” and they are on the other side of the pitch. Though the game is called Freestyle Football because of its freestyle moves, still the game requires team work to successfully execute winning plays.

5. Don’t give up

Some players whine and argue with each other when things aren’t going right initially, resulting often times to a player’s rage quit. Remember that great players don’t give up. Take time to focus on your plays and assign tasks on each player.

Plainly, some of these tips are applicable with other MMO sports. Though winning is the core goal of competing with other players, don’t forget to have enjoy every moment and have fun playing.

The MMORPG game Freestyle Football has different game modes available. These modes boost the game’s versatility and game play, and will surely give players unique and wide selection of options on how you play the game.

cT67C6Z.png

Freestyle Football divided its game modes; Training, Football, Futsal and Friendly modes. The name suggests for itself, as for the Futsal mode which is currently unavailable, it is a mode wherein the football game is held on a smaller arena. Since it is played on a smaller court, it will result in a faster paced game that will make your character tired and your thumbs sore. If you want to organize a match with your in-game friends, you can create a room and set up a Friendly Match.

jkSauFw.png

In Football Mode, you can play an official match with other players to gain experience and level up. You can set up plays and strategies on how you will defeat your opponent team. There is a performance-based scoring which will depend on your performance on the game. MVP’s are selected every match so strive to be one!

nATKoIx.png

If you feel that you can’t keep up with other advanced players and you need a practice match, Scoring Mode allows you to play a football match with AIs. You can also hire AI players on teams you defeated by using points. Rewards are given after you finished playing a certain stage. You can use your accumulated points and try your luck in the Gacha Machine.

Freestyle Football offers practice modes so you can train your football court moves. There is also a tutorial mode for new players and for a specified training of the basic fundamental required in playing the game.

q1mPO4P.png

In the Tutorial mode, Alice will assist players that require basic knowledge on the controls of the game. She will teach you the four fundamental skills in playing football; Dribbling, Passing, Shooting and Defense. In Dribbling Practice you will run on a series of cones arranged in the pitch.

In Passing Practice, there will be AI companions on how to pass the ball properly and what type of pass to use in different situations. After the Passing Practice, understand the basics of shooting with Shooting Practice with the help of an AI goalkeeper. And lastly you will get to know the basics of defense and stealing the ball with tackles on Defense Practice.

1hmaq98.png

The Training mode lets you create a room and practice freely alone or with other players. You can invite players and friends in the room you created. Or you can also randomly join public practice rooms created by other players.

With these game modes, Freestyle Football is sure an enjoyable and user friendly game. No matter if you are a newbie or a pro already, these different game modes suits every player without making the competition subside. It is just a matter of strategy on how will you have your edge with other players.

3. Dota 2

dBYY4Z5.jpg

Dota 2 is a 2013 multiplayer online battle arena video game and the stand-alone sequel to the Defense of the Ancients (DotA) Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos and Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne mod. Developed by Valve Corporation, Dota 2 was released as a free-to-play title for Microsoft Windows, OS X and Linux in July 2013, concluding a Windows-only public beta testing phase that began in 2011. The game is available exclusively through Valve's content-delivery platform, Steam. Dota 2 is played in discrete matches involving two five-player teams, each of which occupies a stronghold at a corner of the map. Each stronghold contains a building called the "Ancient", which the opposite team must destroy to win the match. Each player controls a "Hero" character and focuses on leveling up, collecting gold, acquiring items and fighting against the other team to achieve victory. Development of Dota 2 began in 2009, when the developer of the DotA mod, IceFrog, was hired by Valve as lead designer. Dota 2 was praised by video game critics, who lauded its rewarding gameplay, enhanced production quality and faithfulness to its predecessor. However, the game was criticized for its steep learning curve and inhospitable community. Dota 2 has become the most actively played game on Steam, with daily peaks of over 800,000 concurrent players.

Gameplay

Dota 2 is a multiplayer online battle arena game; its gameplay focuses on combat in a three-dimensional environment, presented from an oblique high-angle perspective. The player may command a single controllable character called a "Hero", which is chosen from a selection pool of 108. Each Hero begins the match at level one but may become more powerful by accumulating experience through combat, thereby leveling up. With every level gained—the maximum is twenty-five—the player may either select a new ability for their Hero to learn or enhance their general statistics. The Hero's methods of combat are influenced by their primary property – Strength, Agility, or Intelligence. Dota 2 features a host of items, which the player may store in a small inventory. Said items may be acquired predominantly through purchase by gold, the in-game currency. Items vary in function: some enhance the statistics of a Hero, while others grant additional abilities. The player automatically receives small increments of gold continuously, though they can obtain more by destroying enemies. Killing non-player characters grants gold only to the player who lands the final blow, whereas killing enemy Heroes grants gold to the player's nearby allies as well. Destroying Towers or killing Roshan gives gold to all players on the team. "Denying" is a feature of the game where players inhibit the enemy's ability to accumulate gold and experience by killing an allied unit or destroying an allied structure before the enemy can do so. Each match of Dota 2 takes place on a functionally symmetrical map that features the strongholds of two warring factions, the Radiant and the Dire. The Radiant is based at the southwest corner of the map, while the Dire is based at the northeast corner; the two sides are divided by a river that runs perpendicular to the central lane. These factions are defended by up to five players each, and are pitted against one another to compete as the defenders for their respective Ancient. In each stronghold is a critical structure called the "Ancient", a fountain that provide health and lesser structures. These bases are connected by three paths, referred to as "lanes" – two run parallel with the edges of the map, while one runs directly between the two bases. The lanes are guarded by defensive Towers, as well as autonomous characters called "creeps", which periodically spawn in groups and traverse the lanes, attacking enemies they encounter. Featured across the map are hostile characters referred to as "neutrals", which are not aligned to either faction and are primarily located in the forests. Located in a tarn on the northeast side of the river is a "boss" called "Roshan", who typically requires multiple team members to kill and drops powerful items. Dota 2 features a variety of seasonal events, which provide players with the option of playing the game with special game modes that alter the aesthetics and objectives. With the seasonal event game modes, the central focus of the game shifts away from the standard battle composition, in order to focus on new objectives central to the seasonal events. So far, there have been three seasonal events: the Halloween-themed Diretide event, the Christmas-themed Frostivus event, and the New Bloom Festival, which celebrates the coming of spring.

Classes

cxhBTG1.png

The Warrior: Classic close-combat tank & spank class, the warrior starts out as an even balance of offensive and defensive skills.

The Swordsman: Swordsmen are warriors whom, once specialized, embrace the damage-dealing aspect of their class, which can be again specialized to one, or many opponents through their choice of skills.

The Mercenary: Mercenaries are nothing short than traditional, full-blown tanks. Though they lose out on Swordsman damage, they can take a beating and easily ask for second servings.

The Archer: Straightforward long-ranged damage dealer, the archer is fast, hard-hitting, and fragile. Archers will need to use their mobility to ensure they can live to keep dishing out the pain.

The Sharpshooter: Specialized in long-ranged combat, the Sharpshooter is the archer with a full focus on long-range damage, but with even more vulnerability. This class hits like a truck.

The Acrobat: Losing a lot of the long range damage dealing, the Acrobat is an agility and mobility powerhouse that trades in the bow for close combat damage dealing.

The Cleric: Tank, healer and buffer, the cleric boasts a range of survival and crowd control abilities that makes him a welcome addition to any group. They are however, quite weak on the damage aspect.

The Paladin: Though low in damage, the Paladin is a spell casting tank with a knack for survival with a good measure of the group supporting and enemy disrupting abilities of the cleric.

The Priest: Acting as the traditional healer and support caster role, the priest is Dragon Nest’s main support powerhouse, with some secondary damage dealing spells.

The Sorceress: Short to medium range spell caster, the Sorceress’ focus is a mix of damage-dealing attacks, status and crowd control abilities.

The Elementalist: Focusing on elemental magic, this sub-class boasts a range of high damage and crowd control magic, with the tradeoff being lower toughness.

The Mystic: A more balanced alternative to the elementalist, the Mystic’s main focus is crowd control rather than damage, using gravity to throw enemies around the area.

The Tinkerer: The Tinkerer uses a variety of attacks that hit a wide area from mid- to long-ranges to deal damage, heal, and defend their allies, and their low Strength and Vitality are offset by strong Agility and Intellect.

The Engineer: Engineers command a vast arsenal of rockets, turrets, and robots to deal damage and control the battlefield. In addition to direct-damage skills, the Engineer can also bolster Alfredo, transforming the robo-butler into the ultimate bodyguard.

The Alchemist: Masters of all things chemical, Alchemists use various tinctures and tonics to heal allies, poison enemies, and dish out elemental damage. With the power to tip the scales of battle in their party’s favor, Alchemists make excellent all-around supporters.

The Kali: The Kali combines fast and fluid melee combat with dark magic that cripples her enemies and bolsters her allies. Her relentless strikes and debilitating de-buffs weaken foes and leave them open to attack.

The Screamer: Screamers embrace the power of fallen spirits to protect allies and weaken enemies with status effects and continuous damage. Screamers can even become invincible for a short time.

The Dancer: Dancers unleash a flurry of chakram attacks and magical abilities in a deadly dance that overwhelms enemies. Dancers are lithe and agile, and they dart from enemy to enemy in the blink of an eye.

Freestyle Football

fsf_copy.png

For avid football fans out there, Freestyle Football by JCEntertainment (JoyCity Entertainment Corp), published by GameKiss has come on our way to make a difference in terms of game play experience. On this review, the game is analyzed and scored according by different categories that games must have to be a success. Now, let’s start by the:

Story: 2/10

image.png

The game has no clear storyline, but Freestyle Football has a cut scene, so we will base things on what the cut scene tells. In the cut scene, there is this bunch of skilled freestyle footballers playing. Then all of a sudden, a car parked inside the football court. In the car, a generically-promoter looking guy came out, told everyone that he will recruit some football players, and handed an envelope to one of the football players. The promoter-looking guy left. When the player opened the envelope he discovered that it is a ticket for Freestyle Football. End of the cut scene. You now know why it got 2 out of 10 for the Story.

Gameplay: 10/10

image.png

Freestyle Football’s gameplay is incomparable with other available football games. Since it is a MMO, instead of controlling a whole team you will control a single player with a specific position. In the game, you can perform freestyle moves that are not allowed on a normal football. The character you control is also customizable. You can pick from a wide range of items; from hairstyles, tops, bottoms, shoes and accessories, and even costumes are available. At a certain level, your base positions can be upgraded into a more specialized position. You may refer on this link about the information on these specialized positions.

http://forums.gamekiss.com/forum/freestyle-football/general-discusssion/47154-specialized-positions

On top of that, the fact that it is a sport game plus MMO, gives the gameplay factor a perfect score.

Graphics: 9/10

image.png

Usually a football game is in 3D graphics. This game is also in 3D, but with different style. The graphics has an anime-like style contrary from the mainstream human 3D form. Though unconventional, this style adds positive effect to the game play and making it more acceptable. It will be odd if the dev team used human like characters but performing plays that are animated style, or anime characters acting like they are real human.

Music: 6/10

The game plays only four (4) tracks in random when you are in the lobby. Once you enter the in-game arena to play, you will feel a genuine football environment. A pretty good score for music, but I think it needs improvement.

Replay Value: 8/10

The game has no story mode but like any MMO we make our own story as we play out the game. There are lot of factors that will keep players online; competition with other players and a variety of skills and items which are available in the game.

Multiplayer: 10/10

The game is an MMO. Said Enough. It can accommodate various players who have a passion for football from around the world, the challenges and opponents you will face are endless with many different possibilities and outcomes.

Pros:

The game offers a striking feature that many games don’t have have; its uniqueness. In what game can you find footballers performing freestyle moves and playing on unusual arenas like dirt grounds or streets? How about footballers wearing costumes while playing? And most importantly, the gameplay itself, and the MMO factor are its asset among other football games.

Cons:

Here are some downsides. There are times that the AI will not respond to your commands. If you call for the ball, the AI sometimes will run directly towards the net and waste an opportunity for a goal. When you choose a specific position, obviously you can only perform what your position can do, and you cannot explore more on other position’s plays. So, when choosing a position, make it sure that it fits your gameplay preference!

Overall:

Freestyle Football for me is the best football game available online. It hits all the positive checkboxes for an online sport game and is likely to progress and to be successful. If you want more action and social interaction among fellow football enthusiasts in the world, this game is for you.

Even some of them had a sequel. For this review we will discuss about the one of the most successful fighting game sequel today, Tekken. And to narrow down the topic, we will focus on Tekken 6.

Tekken 6 is a fighting game and the seventh sequel for the Tekken franchise. The game is available on Playstation 3, Playstation Portable, and on Arcades. There are even official Tekken 6 championships held using the Arcade platform. That is how competitive and versatile in terms of arcade combat Tekken 6 is.

Familiar characters can be seen on Tekken 6. Also there are new characters that are added including the final boss. The gameplay is still extreme as ever and even has more features. For example, the “rage” condition wherein when you hit a certain low bar, your life bar will blink and you will gain more damage than normal.

The story is the continuation of past Tekken installments. Some of the characters are redesigned. In all of the platforms available, the game offers multiplayer modes and online playing modes. The controls are simple, yet it also satisfies advanced controls and combinations of moves that are used by advanced players. The music adds an intense feeling while fighting with AI’s or other players. The graphics are fine. It has some effects like screen shaking and different auras of the characters. It adds more detail to the game. The cinematics is nice because it is 3D rendered, it gives a movie feel.

New Characters

A new set of characters is available for Tekken 6. In these new characters, a potential next main character is introduced which is Lars. Many would say so because of the character’s attitude and physical appearance. In the near future, Tekken fans feel that the Kazamas will pass the heir to another character to revolve the story, and that is Lars.

Also there is a new final boss. An oversized Egyptian looking god that has ice crystals sticking out on his forearms, a long spiky tail that he uses to whip enemies and shoots lasers with his eyes. His name is as dangerous as my description sounds. Prepare for Azazel, the Tekken 6 final boss.There is a lot of character to choose from. You can experiment with your own combos as well.

The game seems perfect. But it has disadvantages too. In the Arcade Mode, you will find it very repetitive when you already mastered the using the characters. Loading time is also unreasonably lengthy. Some players say that the online mode of the game is inconsistent because of lag.

Overall, the game is still claimed as one of the most favorite fighting game of players. It received different positive feedbacks despite of the some gameplay issues it faced. In fact due to the success of this sequel, a new installment will be released which will be called Tekken 7.
