Game Review – Dark Orbit

Good morning!
I’m back guys with a brand new game review on Dark Orbit. Now, I’ll spend 2-5 minutes talking and explaining about the game as well as giving out my point of view on the game. Also, don’t forget to leave a comment below to let me know what you think and follow my blog. So, lets’ get started!
Dark Orbit is a massively multiplayer online game developed by Bigpoint Games. The game is set in outer-space where people battle out enemies and other players for valuable resources. This includes three factions players can choose from; Earth Industries Corporation (EIC), Mars Mining Operations (MMO), and Venus Resources Unlimited (VRU). It was released as a two dimensional Flash game on December 10, 2006. Over time, it has reached over 65 million registered users with millions still active.
When you first start, the game gives you free bonuses for 2 weeks. Also, you get rewards every single day you log in. This is a great way to save up your credits and equipment. But, it could take a while before you can get move on to different maps.

The graphics for a 2D browser game are very decent. I like how the functionality of this game is very well laid out and comes with little or no lag. The background of the scene is very impressive and I like how it gives me the in-depth feeling of the game. However, I wish we can actually go there rather than on top of it.

I also find the gameplay very well done. There are Streuners (enemies) you can battle out and you receive resources in reward. You’ll also pick-up resources along your journey through space. Of course, you can join with other players on the same company as you and battle out other rivals. But as you go on to different maps, enemies become more harsh, but resources are more bountiful.

What I also found annoying was the chat system. When I clicked on Global Chat and starting typing messages, it’d seem like no one is talking. But, if you click on other chats such as the EIC (Earth Industries Corporation) chat then click on Global Chat again, you find that people were actually responding. I have absolutely no exclamation how this could be possible, but I hope it gets fixed very soon.

Overall, this is a great game for experienced players. So I recommend you check this out. Don’t forget to comment below to let me know what you think and follow my blog. See you guys later!

Software Review – Blender

Good Morning!

I’m back with a brand new software review on Blender. I’ll spend 2-5 minutes explaining about and how I think of the software. Don’t forget to leave a comment once you’ve finished reading and let me know what you think. So, let’s get started.

Blender is a 3D computer graphics software used to make animations, 3D games, and 3D models. The program is developed by the Blender Foundation.

When I first opened Blender, it looks sleek and new. The layout is rather complex and takes a while to master, but it’s all worth it. What’s unique about the software though is that you can change the way the interface of the program runs. By this, I mean you can make it run like Maya, a popular 3D graphics program. So, for those used to using Maya but want to try Blender, you can always change your interaction presets to Maya when you open Blender.

The program also has some layouts already set for you on the toolbar. So, you can change it to a video editing layout, animation, compositing, etc. This is a great way to organize and save your layouts making it easier for you to work on your projects.

What is also nice is the way it lets you sculpt and design architectural objects. It lets you pull and stretch the vertices of the objects and you can literally sculpt your designs as if you’re sculpting with clay. This is by far the most advanced 3D graphics program I’ve ever seen. I mean, it’s really rare to find a program that does that.

Although I’ve had little experience with Blender, I’ve also discovered a few bugs in it. When I was working on an introduction for my school and wanted to add one more text mesh to my other 5 text meshes, it kept freezing. So, I tried downloading the introduction template from online but yet again, it kept freezing when I wanted to add more text meshes. This same bug occurred when I downloaded other templates. I don’t know why this is happening, but I’m suspecting it’s because my computer is way too old to handle this.

However, that’s not the only problem I’ve found. When I finished rendering my animation and imported them into the video editing layout and played the video, all I saw was white. I checked all the settings to see if they were correct and they were. But when I opened the images in other programs they seem to work perfectly fine. I don’t know why it’s like that, but I’m guessing maybe the software doesn’t support .png files. However, the weird thing is, everyone else seems to work perfectly fine and the software actually does support .png files. So that really messes me up.

Overall, I think this is a great software that I highly recommend for game designers, architects, or even just the average computer user. So, don’t forget to check out the links and media below.

Also, remember to read my other reviews and look for some tutorials if you need any help. Make sure you leave a comment to let me know what you think. As for now, see you later!
