Fun Fact: Lepa Radic

Communist Lepa Radic

Lepa Radic was a Yugoslav communist who was executed by the Germans during World War II for firing at their soldiers. The Germans offered her a chance to live, if she snitched on her comrades and leaders. During her last moments (at the age of 17 no less), she vowed they’d let themselves be known, when they came to avenge her.

Things I Like: First Infinite Boss Battle (Sonic Forces)

The game’s 2nd main bad guy, Infinite challenges the player early on in the game. We first think we’re going to fight him perhaps as Silver the Hedgehog.

But Sonic saves his friend at the last moment.

So you play as Sonic for the whole boss battle. You run on a big pillar thing while jumping over some magic by the Phantom Ruby.

Before getting a chance to cause Infinite some damage. While a decent boss battle, it could have been better.

But you don’t defeat him for good, he runs away before Sonic could land a mortal wound.

Realm Royale (Nintendo Switch) Review

Realm Royale Nintendo Switch pc Xbox one PS4

Realm Royale was rather late arriving on Nintendo Switch as it hit PC (Windows), PS4, and Xbox One last year. I also got a little distracted by other games so it took me some time to give it enough time for a full and fair review. I am a big fan of the game Paladins, which is from the same company behind Realm Royale, though this one favors Fortnite rather than it does Overwatch.

Like Fortnite, you play on a giant map which features an island with different kinds of terrain. You mainly play with 99 other players, so it’s a pretty crazy battle royale. While there are team/squad modes, if you play solo, prepare for a very Hunger Games like experience. You get one life, a random luck with weapons, and if you out…you out.

The main difference between Realm Royale and Fortnite is the lack of building things. To be honest, I was never the greatest builder, and I’d rather just run around and hide. I always got ticked off when some kid would build a four-star hotel in five seconds while it takes me ten minutes to build a shack. Forging weapons and special abilities (which is one of the few things it shares with Paladins) are also a notable difference.

There’s also where you can ride a horse at pretty much anytime, which makes it way easier to cross terrain. It also makes you pretty easy to hear, so don’t act shocked when some fool sees you and tries his luck. And the final Fortnite difference, is that you turn into a chicken when you “die” but if you manage to survive for a few moments while laying eggs (okay, not really), you will return with some health to continue onwards.

But like Fortnite, I find Realm Royale just rather underwhelming. It feels like 90% the same game, and that hurts it for me. Like Fortnite, I just find it more boring than exciting. While I get lucky with some weapons (rarely), I often never get a chance to use them until the last 20 or so players are left on the map. And no matter how hard I try, getting to number one often feels impossible. But like Fortnite and Paladins, the game is technically free, so I can’t hate on it too much.

Score: B-

Things I Hate: Zavok Boss Battle (Sonic Forces)

Zavok sonic forces Nintendo Switch Xbox One PS4 Sega

The first real boss in Sonic Forces is by far the worst. I missed out on recent Sonic games, so I didn’t really know who Zavok was or why he was important.

But he frees Sonic so that he can fight him. How very noble and fair.

Though he does jump on a giant hornet robot thing. That’s not very fair.

You have to run around to avoid his laser beams. Which gets harder as the platform gets smaller and smaller.

The thing that made me hate it was actually getting up to Zavok to hurt him. It just seems nearly broken.

It took me quite a number of tries, but I did eventually best him.

Turns out it wasn’t really Zavok, but a “clone” of him by Infinite using a Phantom Ruby or something.
