Review: "Shift DX" - Nintendo 3DS

Reviewed by Kid Gamer for FamilyFriendlyGaming

SCORE: 71/100

Family Friendly Gaming was sent a download code for Shift DX on the Nintendo 3DS. This hand held video game contains one hundred levels and a level editor. The goal of Shift DX is to get to the door. In each of the levels in this downloadable only hand held video game. I did some research and there are other versions of Shift on other platforms like free websites.

Wash your hands

Okay, for the record, yeah I’m a big advocate of washing your hands. If you are a guest in my house and you use the bathroom and don’t wash your hands, YUCK!, don’t think, and I mean even for a millisecond, about opening my refrigerator and digging through my lunch meat drawer to make a sandwich. You feel me?

Review: "Dead or Alive Dimensions" - Nintendo 3DS

Reviewed by WMG for FamilyFriendlyGaming

SCORE: 40/100

How did Dead or Alive Dimensions get the thirteen and older rating instead of the seventeen and older rating? Other current Dead or Alive games are getting the ‘M’ rating from the ESRB. Plenty of bad content is found within Dead or Alive Dimensions on the Nintendo 3DS. It is also a clunky and clumsy fighting game on the Nintendo 3DS. The control scheme makes little sense.

SCORE: 55/100

We are continuing with the reviews of the Black Friday 2016 Lego Dimensions purchases. The most recent one was Lego Dimensions DC Comics Joker Team Pack. As you could probably guess the villains packs are a lower priority for us. This package comes with The Joker, Harley Quinn, The Joker Chopper, and the Quinn-Mobile. A lot of this package feels like a waste to me personally.

Review: "Spheroids" - Wii U

Reviewed by Kid Gamer for FamilyFriendlyGaming

SCORE: 79/100

I am thankful Family Friendly Gaming was given a code for Spheroids on the Wii U. This downloadable only home console video game with off screen play takes the old Buster Bros concept and fleshes it out into a full 2D side scrolling game. What does that mean exactly? Spheroids is an indie 2D side scrolling game with gadgets like a grappling gun and has blob like characters that break apart when hit.

SCORE: 69/100

I don’t know what it is about the Wipeout games that has caught my eye. Something about going through the courses as quickly as possible appeals to me. Wipeout Create & Crash is the latest version that has been purchased by Family Friendly Gaming. Don’t get me started on the PR and Marketing failures going on over at Activision. Thankfully Wipeout Create & Crash did not cost much money.

Music feeds the soul and few people understand its power better than Danny Gokey. His young life has been a rollercoaster ride and music has been his constant companion. It sustained him following the death of his first wife, Sophia, and it propelled him up the charts after the world discovered his talent on American Idol. Music has shaped his life, providing a sense of purpose and direction, even in the most trying times.

Well we’ve made it through another year together in our writer/reader relationship and I hope that my weekly columns have blessed you and had a positive impact in your life.

I hope that you’ve enjoyed reading my columns as much as I’ve enjoyed writing them. 2016 is in the history books, may we embrace 2017, as the year we pray things get better. I thought and prayed about what message I should give you to kick off the new year and God delivered. He has a way of doing that.

Review: "Pocket Kingdom" - PC

Reviewed by Mark for FamilyFriendlyGaming

SCORE: 56/100

Family Friendly Gaming was emailed a digital downloadable code of Pocket Kingdom on Steam. I was unable to find a physical copy of Pocket Kingdom on Steam. I found an N-Gage game called Pocket Kingdom Own the World. That is actually a completely different game than Pocket Kingdom on Steam. What is sad is the N-Gage game actually looks a bit better.

Reviewed by Teen Gamer for FamilyFriendlyGaming

SCORE: 56/100

Since the PR and Marketing department for Bandai Namco Games failed us so horribly, I purchased a copy of J-Stars Victory VS+ on the Playstation 4. Maybe the PR and Marketing greed and corruption is to blame since Family Friendly Gaming does not promise to deliver a completely positive, make them more sales review. Those kinds of reviews has cost plenty of gaming sites credibility when the hype does not match the end product.

SCORE: 58/100

I am thankful Family Friendly Gaming purchased a copy of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 after the PR and Marketing for Activision failed us so utterly. This skating game is hard. In fact casual gamers will only get frustrated, aggravated, agitated, irritated, and angry from playing Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5. Why can’t they make this game more approachable? The tutorial is an important part of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5. Even then Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 is extremely difficult.

   

Self-Sacrifice Explained!

Noble behavior (self-sacrifice) understood.

John 15:13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

Romans 5:7-8 Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

The Bible and history reveal that countless people have endangered or even sacrificed their lives for another. This reality is completely at odds with Darwin's theory of the survival of the fittest.

Reviewed by Frank for FamilyFriendlyGaming

SCORE: 75/100

Sony continues to backslide with their baseball franchise. MLB 16 The Show is marginally different from last year. The challenge plays are rarely close enough to be overturned. The PR and Marketing for Sony has struck out for the second year in a row. There is no PS Vita version for MLB 16 The Show since Sony tried to go with the despised and dreaded digital download only version last year on the Vita. That’s right there was no physical copy of the Vita version, and it killed the franchise. Whereas the physical copy had always done fine. Who is making decisions over at Sony?

Philippians 3:13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead...

Was last year a good year for you? Maybe it was, but maybe it wasn’t. Maybe last year was a year filled with poor choices or unfortunate circumstances.
