Peku the Space Dragon Review

Zindeaxx Games brings absolute chaos to the cosmos with the release of Peku the Space Dragon. An eater of worlds, does this hungry dragon satiate the appetite of all players?

Peku the Space Dragon Review

Peku is a hungry fellow – he flies around space in one of eight different directions, eating planets and everything in his wake. However, there are a number of evil entities that spew lasers that can take him down in one hit. Much like the mobile classic Snake, the ultimate goal is to eat your way to victory and try not to hit anything that’ll put a stop to your plans.

This overly simple concept sounds good on paper, but the execution here is slapdash. For one, there’s no flow to the game – movements are janky, animations are cut short, and everything feels like it was taken from stock images. The eight-way directional movement should work in theory, but in practice it comes across as rigid. Assets are questionable too – there are a number of space-themed backgrounds, but one has so much bloom in one section that it’s impossible to see where you’re going in a third of the screen.

In addition, the playfield makes it hard to prep for enemy attacks. It’s not uncommon to have a laser from the edge of the screen make a clear shot for the dragon’s head, taking it out in one hit. In addition, there were times where the playfield glitched on us – planets would instantly rearrange themselves, like it was loading a completely different level layout. There are also certain enemies that bring the lasers forward as a sort of energy shield – contending with those with the eight-way directional inputs is a losing proposition.

As players progress in Peku the Space Dragon, they can level up. There is a way to generate your score for each run, but the overall level carries over between playthroughs. It is somewhat slow going, but it is possible to fill the meter faster through a successful playthrough. There are a handful of achievements tied to score and level, but the highest one we saw was for reaching level 10, so it’s possible to get most of these accomplishments with a minimal amount of play.

Unfortunately, the rest of the game suffers from a lack of polish. Music is made up of two poorly mixed music samples, with one of them being a poor rendition of a classical song. Settings would not carry over either – the resolution would change from windowed to fullscreen between playthroughs, forcing us to change it each time. Controller support is available, but it only works for certain things – select menu prompts require players to put the controller down and use a mouse to navigate.

Though it cribs notes from the mobile classic Snake, Peku the Space Dragon proves to be a frustrating affair. A clear lack of effort went into its design, completely ruining what many consider to be a simple formula.

This review of Peku the Space Dragon was done on the PC. The game was purchased digitally.

Saviors of Uldum expansion brings back the League of Explorers to Hearthstone

Hearthstone Heroes of Warcraft the collectible card game from Blizzard, will get a new expansion very soon. After the recent launch of Rise of Shadows, World of Warcraft developer has announced the following expansion, Saviors of Uldum, that as usual will expand the number of cards available to the players. Saviors of Uldum will be the second expansion of the Year of the Dragon and it will bring back three well-known characters from the lore of Hearthstone, Elise Starseeker, Reno Jackson, Sir Finley Mrrgglton and Brann Bronzebeard, the members of the League of Explorers.

The League of Explorers – Saviors of Uldum

After the assault to the city of Dalaran by the League of E.V.I.L. the bad buys commanded by Arch-Villain Rafaam have decided to ransack the treasures hidden under the sands of Uldum, but our adventurous heroes have decided to put a stop to their plans and save the world once again. Saviors of Uldum expansion will include cards but also new gameplay mechanics that will undoubtedly have a heavy impact on the metagame in Hearthstone. The new keyword Reborn will make any minion tagged with it to resurrect with 1 point of health after they die for the first time, allowing them to survive to removal cards to stay in play a bit longer. We will also see the addition of a new spell type, the “plagues”. These powerful spells devised by E.V.I.L. will affect all minions on the board, yours too, so you will have to be careful when using them. Also, a new set of nine different quests will be included in this expansion. If you have played Hearthstone you should already know that these are cards that can be played on the first turn and that you have to meet a series of conditions to trigger the effect on them, which is being rewarded with a very powerful card.

Hearthstone cards of Saviors of Uldum will be available on August 6 but the expansion will have a solo adventure mode that will probably unlock on September.

The area design in Shadowbringers can be a little confusing. There are many areas that, when you first arrive, you can only explore a small portion of. When you first enter Kholusia via the Main Story Quest, you are only able to explore the Southern part of the area.

How To Use Elevator Ladder In Kholusia In Final Fantasy XIV

GOG Celebrates US and Canadian Games with Sale

Story 330809335

With today being Canada Day and the Fourth of July right around the corner, GOG’s showing their support for Canadian and American developers with a massive sale, with 300+ games and up to 90% off. These sales will both last for another week, so if you’ve got some spare time over your Canada Day/Independence Day weekend, be sure to check them out. GOG has made two sales categories, one for Canadian Games and one for American Games that you can scroll through from their homepage.

Some highlights from the Canadian bundle include Guacamelee (currently $4.49) and its sequel Guacamelee 2 ($9.99), Darkest Dungeon ($7.49), Cuphead ($16.99), Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime ($5.99), and Rogue Legacy (at a low, low, $2.99). Meanwhile the American bundle includes Firewatch ($4.99), Enter the Gungeon ($7.49), Psychonauts (a very appealing $1.49), the classic I Have no Mouth and I Must Scream ($1.49), Oxenfree ($4.99), FTL Advanced Edition ($2.49) as well as the next game from its developers Into the Breach ($7.49), The Metronomicon ($3.99) as well as five level packs for $.79 each, Postal 2 ($.99) and the wonderful Stardew Valley ($11.99)

Oxenfree is one of the highest reviewed games on our site as well as the favorite game of one of our writers, while I’d personally recommend Stardew Valley if you’re looking to relax, FTL if you’re into roguelikes, and Rebel Galaxy (only $3.99) for one of the most fun spaceship games I’ve ever played. This is only a small taste of the deals, though, and the best way to find what you want is to go through the deals and take a look for yourself.

Between the recent Headup Games Switch sale that’s still ongoing and of course the legendary Steam summer sale, there’s quite a lot of very affordable games that have suddenly become available. Clear your schedules, prepare your wallets, indulge in some good old fashioned gaming binges, and be sure to stay hydrated.

Have You Checked Your Hard Drive Lately?

Do you actually check your hard drive? For all you know, your hard drive is about to crash and you just don’t know it. The signs are all showing but you’re probably not aware of them. Even worst, you’re ignoring them.

Your computer’s hard disk drive (HDD) works diligently at storing and protecting your data, including files, operating system, and software. Although rarely visible, unless it is an external drive, this workhorse is consistently performing its duties. That is until your computer starts crashing.

Maybe you have seen your PC blue-screen and reboot, or your system takes an unusual amount of time to open a folder. Possibly the hard drive is producing strange noises you have never heard before, or you have noticed files seem to be disappearing.

If any of these events have occurred with your computer, whether it be Windows or a MAC, these signs are indicative of a failing HDD. When your hard drive dies, which it will eventually, without a proper backup, your data can perish as well. To prevent this demise from happening, here are six free sites that will help detect issues with your hard drive.

Yes, there are six free sites that can help you check your hard drive. Take note that these six sites can just detect issues with your hard drive. They will not, in any way, prolong the life of your hard drive. Nonetheless, it wouldn’t hurt to try them out.

The PassMark DiskCheckup boasts of its Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology feature.

Although Windows OS has tools such as Error Checking built-in, there are alternatives that may provide greater insight to your problems. For example, this HDD test that works for most hard drives using Windows 10/8/7/Vista/XP and Windows Server 2008/2003. It’s easy to use with two types of self-tests: short (5 minutes) and long (up to 45 minutes), and can be configured to email you when specific events occur.

In addition, DiskCheckup can help predict HDD failure by tracking Self-Monitoring Analysis, and Reporting Technology (SMART) attributes such as spin-up time, the number of start/stops, hours your system is powered on and the hard drive temperature. Unfortunately, DiskCheckup cannot scan SCSI or RAID devices and is not free for commercial use.

(Via: https://www.komando.com/cool-sites/564562/6-free-sites-to-check-your-hard-drive)

HD Tune can monitor the performance of both the hard disk and SSD. It also works well with memory cards.

HD Tune works with several types of storage devices including internal, external hard drives, solid state drives, and memory cards. The program is easy to use and offers useful tests such as a benchmark read test, run & error scan.

As with DiskCheckup, HD Tune can help determine the health of your hard drive using (SMART). Although earlier versions of this tester only support Windows 7/XP/Vista and 2000, the latest edition, HD Tune Pro 5.70 works with Windows 10. Only personal and home use are permitted.

Macrorit Disk Scanner can tell you if your hard disk is not safe to store any more data.

Checking for bad sectors on your system’s hard drive is easy with Macrorit Disk Scanner. It is fully portable and does not require installation. This scanner works well on several operating systems including Windows
