Review: "Scrap Garden" - PC

Reviewed by Kid Gamer for FamilyFriendlyGaming

SCORE: 74/100

I am happy Family Friendly Gaming was given a digital download code for Scrap Garden on Steam. This PC video game is not provided in the physical copy format. It was a 1.7 gig download, and then it only installed 878.6 megs. Was it compressed? Where did the rest of the download go? I really hope our virus software does not start screaming about it in a few days.

Is Your Church A Mirage (Part 3)

Welcome back to week 3 of our series, Is Your Church A Mirage? I hope and pray that these devotionals have opened your eyes and heart to some of the issues in the church. I also pray that you are encouraged to see a biblical return of the church and to be a part of it.

This week I want to address a serious issue that plagues literally every church in America and you may have been on the receiving end of it yourself: Judgmental Christians

I am so pleased that Family Friendly Gaming was provided a reviewable copy of Journey to Kreisia on the Nintendo 3DS. This hand held video game is only provided in the digital download format. My deepest apologies to the millions upon millions of physical copy gamers. I have no control over this. I hope and pray the future finds games like Journey to Kreisia provided in the physical copy format.

Review: "Unholy Heights" - Nintendo 3DS

Reviewed by WMG for FamilyFriendlyGaming

SCORE: 36/100

Unholy Heights might be the most shocking 'E' rated video game Family Friendly Gaming has ever played. We were provided a digital download code for this game on the Nintendo 3DS with a request we give an honest review. Be careful what you ask for because you just might get it. Players take on the role of Satan as a manager of a building. The tenants then fight off heroes who try to take your money and destroy the most evil fallen angel in all of history.

by Lindsay Williams

“Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.” Philippians 3:12 (NIV)

Family. It comes in all shapes and sizes. No matter how far we are from home, we all long for a place to belong and a circle of like-minded people to call our own. Family is all worship band Leeland has ever known. Raised on a steady diet of southern gospel and traditional church music, Leeland Mooring and his brother and sister toured with their parents when they were growing up in Baytown, Texas. As they got older, the siblings stepped out on their own to write and record under the moniker Leeland. A major label record deal, four GRAMMY® nods, eight Dove Award nominations, a slew of radio hits, four albums and two EPs later, the meaning of family has been redefined for the group as they release their fifth studio project, Invisible (Bethel Music).

I am pleased that Family Friendly Gaming was provided a reviewable copy of MX vs ATV Supercross Encore. This home console racing game comes in the amazingly popular physical format, and the smelly digital download. Family Friendly Gaming was provided the second one. I am thinking about purchasing a physical copy of MX vs ATV Supercross Encore so Family Friendly Gaming can have the game in a format that has some value.

Scientists have discovered that the most fundamental characteristics of our earth and cosmos are so finely tuned that if just one of them were even slightly different, life as we know it couldn't exist. This is called the Anthropic Principle and it agrees with the Bible which states that God formed the earth to be inhabited.

Isaiah 45:18 For this is what the Lord says—he who created the heavens, he is God; he who fashioned and made the earth, he founded it; he did not create it to be empty, but formed it to be inhabited—he says: “I am the Lord, and there is no other.

SCORE: 60/100

I am thankful Family Friendly Gaming was provided a digital download code for Maldita Castilla EX on the Xbox One. This game pays tribute to Ghost'n'Goblins. There are many similarities between the two games. Maldita Castilla EX is extremely difficult, frustrating, and has numerous cheap hits. Maldita Castilla EX only allows the player to take a couple of hits. Bosses are tough.

TANYA GODSEY: Love Lines The Last Horizon

"God loves each of us as if there were only one of us." ~ Augustine

In a culture caught up in a fury of differences, fear and uncertainty, the latest album from singer-songwriter, worship leader and speaker, Tanya Godsey, serves as a hope-filled and timely reminder of the unflinching love of God. Love Lines The Last Horizon releases on the heels of its first single, “We Are Your Song.” Praise for the new single and its aim to benefit the work of International Justice Mission was evidenced by the 50,000+ views and hundreds of shares the song’s lyric video received on Godsey’s Facebook page within the first 36 hours of its release. This warm reception sets the stage for the release of Tanya’s third studio album: a new collaboration with noted producer Ben Shive (Mercy Me, Rend Collective, Colony House) and a collection of songs inspired by both the journey of the human heart and the condition of the world in which we live.

Invisible marks the first album release from Leeland (Leeland Mooring & Casey Moore) since joining the Bethel Music Collective in 2015 and their fifth full-length album as a band to date. Since 2006, Leeland has been creative presence in Christian music, contributing multiple well-known worship songs to the global church. Unique to previous projects, Invisible takes an intentional yet light-hearted step into new territory: never before has such a bold production style led the creative process so much for the band, guiding the album's melodic and lyrical content into place.

Relient K played its first gig in December 1997, back when Matthew Thiessen and guitarist Matt Hoopes were still in high school and tooling around in the latter's Plymouth Reliant K, which inspired the band's name. The group recorded its first demo the following year with producer Mark Lee Townsend, who has worked on each of the band's subsequent full-length albums (although Five Score And Seven Years Ago was largely produced by Howard Benson).

SCORE: 68/100

Family Friendly Gaming was recently given a digital download code for The Eyes of Ara on Steam. This digital download is under five hundred megs. Which is crazy small when I consider how nice some of the graphics look in The Eyes of Ara. Other areas are a bit too dark for my personal tastes. The Eyes of Ara reminds me of games like Myst and Isles of Derek. Which are also PC games.

Review: "Madden NFL 06" - Playstation 2/Xbox/Gamecube

Reviewed by Paul for FamilyFriendlyGaming

SCORE: 81/100

When I saw all those different Madden NFL video games from before the start of Family Friendly Gaming I was excited to purchase them on the Gamecube. Of the three main consoles in that generation (PS2, Xbox, and Gamecube) I liked the Gamecube the best. Memory was a problem, and it is shown in the videos we have done. Why does Madden NFL 06 need more than an entire memory card? Larger memory cards have to be purchased to save your games.

Fresh off of the new soundtrack for the upcoming film Ben-Hur, for King & Country have shared their brand new music video, “Ceasefire.” While fans wait for the release of the film on August 19, they can check out the music from Australia’s Christian rock band.

"We are so honored that For King & Country have allowed us to use their beautiful song for our film BEN-HUR,” said executive producer Roma Downey. “Our country today is filled with so much anger, tension and violence and this song and our film spread a message of forgiveness and reconciliation that is needed now more than ever.”

The music video features never-before-seen footage from the film by Paramount & MGM.

Ben-Hur stars Jack Huston as Judah Ben-Hur and Toby Kebbell as childhood friend Messala.

NIS America is known for releasing video games with unique game play elements. Grand Kingdom on the Playstation 4 and Playstation Vita is no exception. It is a turn based strategy game where characters are on three lines. They move forward and backward to attack enemy characters on the same three lines. There is only so much movement and attacking that can be done in each of the turns based on an action bar.

Watch the movie trailer here!

The Academy Award-winning film Chariots of Fire is returning to theaters thirty-five years after it debuted! Just in time for the 2016 Summer Olympics, audiences can catch the film in theaters for one-night only showings on Monday, August 1.

The winner of four Academy Awards including Best Picture, the film displayed the true heroism and faith of several runners at the 1924 Olympics. There, British sprinter Eric Liddell famously refused to run the Sunday of his signature race because of his strict observance of the Christian Sabbath. Though ridiculed by the British Olympic Committee, his fellow athletes, and most of the world press, Liddell triumphed in a new event, winning the 400 meters in Paris. Liddell and teammate Harold Abrams, a Jewish runner who won gold in the 100-meter race, were able to return home victorious and true to their faiths.

God has given us just the right amount of water to sustain life. We now recognize that if there was significantly more or less water, the earth would not support life as we know it.

Isaiah 40:12 Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, or with the breadth of his hand marked off the heavens? Who has held the dust of the earth in a basket, or weighed the mountains on the scales and the hills in a balance?
