Wargaming recently donated a bunch of materials from its history as a company to the Strong Museum in New York. The materials donated included digital archives, promotional items and fan art works. Many of the donated materials can be viewed in an online exhibit here on Google Arts and culture.

Andrew Borman, digital games curator at The Strong said “Wargaming is one of the most significant game developers of the past decade and has had a huge impact on the free-to-play game market. The types of artifacts included in this collection help us to present a well-rounded story about this company, from its founding to how it evolved its development of games over the years.”

Tracy Spaight, Director of Special Projects at Wargaming said “It is thus fitting that Wargaming—on the occasion of our 20th anniversary—should seek to preserve our company’s history, so that future historians can tell the story of the rise of the global video game industry. The Strong Museum was the logical choice for these materials, as they are at the leading edge of preserving the digital materials of the video game industry.”

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice Review – Spoiler Free

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is a single-player action adventure game that is available on PC, Xbox One and PS4. The game comes developed by Ninja Theory and was made by a small team of developers in the UK. The game is a mix of Celtic culture and Norse mythology. As a player you will experience the journey of Senua, a female Pict warrior on a quest in a dangerous and dark world.

When first seeing the trailer for Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice in amongst the games available to buy digitally on my PS4 some time ago, it did catch my eye as something interesting but for some reason I never thought of purchasing it. Recently I saw the game on sale as part of the current Winter sale on the PlayStation store and due to my delight experiencing the world of the Norse myths in my recent God Of War adventure, I was looking for something similar. So I committed to purchasing the game this week, but should you do the same? The short answer is yes.

Not really knowing what I was in for other than what I had seen in the impressive trailer for the game, I began my playthrough late last week.

Early on in the game you are introduced to the game’s main character Senua. Senua is a Pict warrior on a journey to Hellheim which is the realm of the dead in Norse mythology. An incident had occurred in Senua’s life recently and her partner Dillion is dead, so she’s travelling to Hellheim in an effort to recover his soul.

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice Review

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice Review

Along the way you will hear a vast amount of Norse myths which are narrated to you as you scan the runes in the area. If you’ve played God Of War recently, you will recognise some of the tales, particularly that of Baldr as you progress through the story. Now being a massive fan of Norse mythology and the entire culture of the people of the time, I found the entire experience of hearing all of the tales to be quite enriching.

The voice acting and the various narrators who you hear throughout the story are all quite strong and are very well done. The voice actors are a big part of why the experience of playing Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice was so strong and so entrancing.

But Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice was an experience like none other for me this week and that’s something I was not expecting. While the plot of simply travelling to Hellheim is a linear one, the themes, symbolism and character development throughout the journey certainly wasn’t.

The game tackles one of the hardest themes and possibly least covered themes in entertainment media at the moment and that’s psychosis and mental health. This is something that’s virtually unexplored in gaming or even film, but this game represents a time in which the gaming medium seems to excel at a certain theme more than any other medium out there in our time. Playing through the game you will play as and experience Senua’s journey, who is someone who herself is suffering from psychosis. She hears voices, she sees symbols and she has a variety of other issues she is dealing with. As a person experiencing a game like this, which is like no other I have experienced in the past, I found the whole thing fascinating. In fact, I could not put my controller down and didn’t want to either.

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice Review

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice Review

The character development for Senua’s character is one of the best one’s I’ve seen in gaming for a long time, but even better than that was that the developers seemed to have delivered a game here that deals with a very difficult theme of mental health and somehow didn’t make it lame, boring or washed down. Having to play as a character dealing with these difficult issues in a past world environment as Pict warrior struggling with the world of Norse myths was one of the most interesting gaming experiences I’ve ever had. By the end of the story I really came to admire Senua and her journey and had a strong understanding of people going through these issues. I learnt a lot from this gaming experience and that’s a great thing.

As far as the gameplay goes. There’s the combat scenes where you fight a variety of enemies using a sword as your weapon. For the most part the combat is fairly simple, you can block, quick attack, heavy attack, punch or dodge. At times enemies can be a little difficult. But there’s no levelling system or xp gains as you go through the story. While combat isn’t the main focus of the game, I did actually feel it was the weakest side of the gameplay experience and at times having such a basic combat system was frustrating. You don’t really get stronger or better at fighting by the end of the game and enemies aren’t really that varied. It’s not bad, but it’s not great either.

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice Review

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice Review

Where the game does excel in its gameplay is with the level design and the various puzzles that you have to deal with as you journey to Hellheim. Between each area in the game there are doors with runes on them and you will have to search through the world to find these symbols in the environment. At first these things were quite a challenge for me to find as I couldn’t see any patterns anywhere. But as I went on and I started to understand how things work much better I became much better at it. Seeing symbols and things inside the world is something that is apparently to do with people who suffer from psychosis so the game is trying to show you a bit of what that’s all about. One of the things that the game developers do seem to want you to do or learn is that there’s different ways of looking at things in the world and the idea of perspective in the gameplay is pushed quite hard. It was very interesting to see this element in Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice.

The graphics in Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice are some of the best in the current generation. What’s interesting about the graphics is that this game was developed only by a small team in comparison to some of the AAA games out there and it looks just as good as some of the big budget titles. The levels are filled with a variety of vibrant colours and small details which do make you feel as if you are in the world the game is in.

Recently a VR version of this game was made available although I recommend only getting it if you have a high end gaming PC and VR is not available on consoles at all because it’s very demanding. Playing this game in VR would be an interesting experience and possibly a much more scary one as Senua’s world is dark and full of death. The game is intense enough without VR so the addition of it makes things so much more stronger and immersive.

Overall Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is an excellent game to add to your collection. In some ways I wish I had played this on release, but as it’s now discounted or if you can find it at a time when it is, it will surely be a new treasure to add to your game library. As far as an experience goes, I’ve never played anything like this before and haven’t really experienced anything at all that deals with themes of mental health and psychosis in this way. The way the game was written and the amount of effort put into the level design and character development so that everything had a strong connection the the game’s theme and message was impressive. For some the gameplay may be a little slow or simple and the themes possibly too strong, but for many out there, the game will deliver an interesting adventure and an experience like no other.

A new patch for The Sims 4 was released yesterday, along with a SimGuru Livestream which is available for watch on The Sims Twitch Page.

 

Here are the always entertaining, Patch Notes taken straight from The Sims 4 website.

 

UPDATE: 07/31/2018 – PC 1.45.62.1020/ Mac 1.45.62.1220

Hello Summers! Hopefully the weather isn’t too hot in your neck of the woods, because then you’d be…Simmers. *cough*

In addition to several fixes and tweaks to improve your game experience, we’ve overhauled the Gallery! This is something we’ve been working on for a while and is the first step to keep enhancing the Gallery to make it an incredible platform for this community to share its creations.

Read below to find out what we changed with the Gallery as well as various improvements throughout the game.

Gallery Update

Our goal with the Gallery is to shift the focus towards the creators making incredible content and make it easier to download the content.

  • We’ve re-arranged the content images so that you can now Follow the creator, Favorite the content and download the content on the front page.
  • We’ve moved the Search bar and popular hashtags front and center.
  • Popular Now is the default filter, which means you should see more fresh, different content.
  • We’ve renamed and re-arranged the tabs. You now have Gallery, for content, News to find out who is uploading and sharing content, your Profile (with your name), and your Library, to see your downloaded content.
  • We’ve updated the art and visuals throughout the Gallery.
  • You can now download and place Lots and Rooms from the Gallery even if you begin in Live mode. Hurray! At last!

Just a reminder in case you haven’t used the Gallery before: The Gallery will not download custom content or mods to your machine. There is a filter to see items created with custom content, but it will not install the custom content for you. So, you can rest assured that items downloaded from the gallery will not break your game.

The Sims 4

  • You can now move Easels into your inventory and Live Drag them, which means you can paint out and about in the world! Be sure to pick up your easel before you leave!
  • Removed unnecessary “seams” that appeared when wearing some full body toddler outfits.
  • Sims should now use the closest counter to prepare Garden Salads of any portion size.
  • Sims should now use the closest sink to wash dishes.
  • Sims should now only use a single Kitchen space to prepare a meal, even on Lots with multiple kitchens.

Get to Work

  • The “Ask About Suspect” interaction is now available during an APB event in the detective career.

Get Together

  • You can now select Hot and Cold Weather attire via the Closet.
  • Sims who belong to an Infamous Club no longer get the Intimidated by Fame moodlet at a gathering.

Seasons

  • The temperature in the Kiddie Pool is now consistent with other pools. Sims will get the “Uncomfortable Chilled” moodlet but won’t immediately begin freezing to death.
  • Vampires are now protected from the Sun when using an umbrella, though it probably gives things away, wouldn’t you say, Vlad?
  • Decorations no longer clip through the rooftops when viewing a Lot in Free Camera mode.
  • Electronic objects will now function properly during the rain, assuming they are indoors and beneath a roof.
  • Sims will no longer freeze to death while playing basketball in cold weather. One could say that as a result of their skillful play, they’re on fire.
  • Father Winter has been banned from all Clubs and will no longer appear when adding Sims to a club. Seems Father Winter has been naughty.
  • Pets will no longer stretch bizarrely while Sims are opening presents.
  • The Sing Together… interaction is now available on the Kinara, Menorah, and Holiday Trees when a Holiday Tradition is active.
  • The Flower Bunny no longer appears on random holidays and events, which is good, because Flower Bunnying is a full-time job and they were really slacking.
  • Sims with the Responsible Trait now have their Daily Tasks automatically completed for the Gardening Career. R-E-S-P-O-N-S-I-B-L-E doesn’t quite have the same ring to it. Sorry, Aretha.
  • Sims who die while skating now die like you’d expect them to die. There was some weirdness, but now there isn’t. Just good ol’ standard death.
  • Sims were sometimes slipping indoors while walking TO a mud pile, which is silly. They now slip and fall like you’d expect.
  • Sims disturb their bees less frequently. We told them to buzz off.
  • Plants pollinated by bees will now evolve more quickly, which is how they bee better.
  • Facial hair now appears while the Hot and Cold Weather filters are active.
  • Banana, palm, and fern trees no longer drop leaves.
  • While using the randomize function with a mannequin you can now see Hot and Cold Weather options appear.
  • We fixed various typos in the Scouting Career. Apparently, our Scouts didn’t earn the spelling merit badge…
  • Handiness Whims are now completed when Handy Sims work on the Sprinklers and Weather Controller.

Jungle Adventure

  • Vegetarian safe options purchased from local vendors are now actually vegetarian safe.
  • Purchasing items from a vendor now contributes to the Jungle Explorer Aspiration progress.

Perfect Patio Stuff

  • Broken Sparks visual effects now go away once you repair a Hot Tub.

Backyard Stuff

  • Birds will once again appear when a bird feeder is placed.

Vintage Glamour Stuff

  • The vanity table should now apply makeup appropriately once more.

Mission Impossible Fallout Review Spoiler Free

Mission Impossible Fallout is the 6th film in the long running Mission Impossible series, which originally began in 1996 and is still going strong. The film stars Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Fergusson, Sean Harris, Angela Basset, Vanessa Kirby and Michelle Monaghan. Mission Impossible Fallout comes directed by Christopher McQuarrie who some may know as the director of Mission Impossible Rogue Nation or Jack Reacher, both of which also star Tom Cruise.

When first seeing the trailer for Mission Impossible Fallout some time ago, I was initially quite excited about the next instalment for this series. I have been quite impressed with the last few Mission Impossible experiences and have increasingly liked them more and more ever since I saw M:I3 at the cinema a few years ago. Coming out of Mission Impossible Fallout last week, I’m happy to say that this is one of the best films in the series so far, if not, arguably the best one in the series.

While I had some doubts about how good this film was before I went in, there’s always the chance that with the 6th film in the series they might miss the mark completely, somehow they didn’t. Christopher McQuarrie has done exceptionally well with this film. The fight scenes have impact, the tone seems to feel just right for every moment and the cinematography in certain scenes is amongst the best of any film so far in 2018. It’s been a few days since I’ve seen this one and I honestly don’t have a thing to complain about, I can’t wait to watch it again.

For those who are going into this film to see a big action blockbuster. Mission Impossible Fallout will deliver everything you want and more. There are two action scenes in this film that for me were highlights of the experience, one was a moment where Ethan (Tom Cruise) and August (Henry Cavill) were fighting some bad guy in a bathroom and the other was towards the end of the film. The lead up to the ending where we reach a climax of action moments is certainly done very well and I was very impressed with how everything turned out and looked. I do wish I could spoil the film and just talk about how good some of the scenes were, but I want you all to go and see them for yourself.

As far as blockbuster films go for 2018, Mission Impossible Fallout is the best of the bunch and the thing I like about it the most is that it’s not a CGI heavy action film, in fact there’s barely any CGI. Another plus as well is that Tom Cruise did all the stunts himself too.

The acting in this film is another massive plus. There’s quite a few great actors in this one and they all seem to get their moment. Tom Cruise is definitely the main standout as the lead and he certainly delivers. Even though this is the sixth time we’ve seen him in the role, he’s not boring at all and after coming out of this film last week, I’d be happy to see him in another six. It was good to see Michelle Monaghan return to the series, I’ve actually been wanting her character to return for a while now. Henry Cavill was also very good in this film and as far as his recent films go, this is one of his better performances, he got a lot to do in this one. Everyone else was also pretty great.

Music was used well in Mission Impossible Fallout. I found it interesting that some fight scenes took place in the film with no music at all and just the sound of punches or other things during fights. When the music was left out, it made these scenes feel very powerful in the cinema and much more tense. But when the music was put in the background in other scenes, it helped to keep the pace fast and quick. This way things didn’t feel like they were slowing down at any point. The film also has quite a good soundtrack, I’ve been listening to it a few times on Spotify after seeing the film and it’s got a lot of great tracks.

The one warning that I’d like to give people that I wish I knew before I went in and saw this is that you should go and see the previous film before watching this one. Although I had watched the previous film in the cinema when it came out, I hadn’t actually re-watched it at all since. But I want to let you all know that the previous film in the series is actually referenced quite a lot and if you haven’t seen it at all it might mess up your experience slightly. The plot of Mission Impossible Fallout isn’t entirely linear and it does aim to keep the viewer guessing all throughout it. It’s not the hardest film to follow by any means, but it can confuse you. So take my advice and re-watch MI:5 before you go in to see MI:6.

Overall Mission Impossible Fallout is an excellent action film experience. Being the sixth film in the franchise, there are no signs of things slowing down at all. In fact it seems like things are getting even better as this is arguably one of the best films of the series so far. All the actors including Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Fergusson, Sean Harris, Angela Basset, Vanessa Kirby and Michelle Monaghan all put in some great work. I appreciated all the stunt work from Tom Cruise and when it comes to action moments and sequences the film won’t disappoint. Christopher McQuarrie has done a fantastic job with the directing of this film and as far as big budget blockbusters go in 2018, this is the best of the bunch so far. As I’m struggling to find any negative points for this film other than having to re-watch MI:5, I’m happy to recommend seeing this one when it releases this weekend.

How It Ends Review Spoiler Free

How It Ends is one of the latest films to come to the Netflix streaming platform as a Netflix original. The film comes directed by David M. Rosenthal who some may know as the director of The Perfect Guy (2015).  How It Ends stars Theo James, Forest Whitaker and Kat Graham. The film is an action adventure story about a man looking for his fiancée in the middle of an apocalypse.

When I saw the trailer for this film early in the morning today, I was initially intrigued. Many people probably don’t know this, but I actually really enjoy Forest Whitaker films. Seeing him in this film was enough to get me to watch it, but also seeing that it was an action adventure apocalypse film with Forest Whittaker in it, was a massive plus. But on the other hand I was a little cautious about deciding to spend time on it this morning as I had just spent yesterday morning watching Extinction on Netflix.

The good news is that How It Ends is a much better end of the world film experience than Extinction. The bad news, is that How It Ends has issues of it’s own. But first I’ll mention what’s good about it.

The story is great, I love an adventure film every now and again and the film does try to develop Will (Theo James) as much as it can and his relationship with his future father in law (Forest Whittaker). The problem I had with the main character is that for some reason and I don’t know why this is, but he makes stupid decisions constantly in the journey which for most people watching will make you want to pull your hair out. I do have an understanding that his character is a lawyer so an apocalypse situation is not really his environment, but honestly I expect more intelligence. But nevertheless it’s not that bad and actually I really enjoyed the character journey, it’s actually mostly pretty good.

Where the film has a most major issue is with the ending. Now I’m not going to talk about what it is, but basically this is one of those films that ends with an ambiguous ending. This is okay in films, I have no problem with that. But when it works, it’s usually for films where they’re more artistic and they lead you towards a point where after watching you have a lot to think about and discuss, there’s an ambiguous meaning there. But in this film, it’s a completely linear story, there’s very little to analyse or discuss and to end it the way it did doesn’t help. If anything it makes the lead up to the end and the entire journey frustrating in the end.

The actors all do really well. I enjoyed the performance from Theo James who played the main character Will. There was some variation to what he could do and a few different emotions that his character went through. By the end of the film, I enjoyed this actor and hope to see him in more things in the future. Forest Whittaker was another great part of the film. To be honest if he wasn’t there and we just sat through a bunch of lesser known actors with the story we got it might have been a little boring. Forest Whittaker had good screen time and great presence. I do wish though he had even more screen time than he did though. I hope Netflix continues working with both these actors in the future as I’d like to see more from them.

The special effects are pretty decent. For a TV movie it gets the job done. There aren’t really any big CGI moments in this film, but there’s quite a bit of weather effects, car chases and shootings. There’s also various locations across America in which all the events take place and overall it’s a nice country to look at.

Overall this is an entertaining action adventure film. Although the story is quite linear, it kept me interested all the way until the end. The ending I think will be a point of frustration for many, but other than that it’s worth taking a look at if you’ve got a bit of time this week. Forest Whittaker is the main reason to watch this film, but Theo James does do his best as well and he’s also quite likeable. If you’re choosing between watching How It Ends and Extinction tonight on Netflix, choose How It Ends, it’s slightly better.
