Kongregate: Storm the House 3!

Gar, I have not posted on this blog in ages. I thought it died... checked my counter and WOAH! People! I owe you all a blog post, so here it is.

Kongregate is still my recent obsession, so I decided to play a game of Storm the House 3 (, a base defence game.

I've played Storm the House 1, which had about 8 guns, I think, but my memory fades... lessee...

nope, just 1. But I assure you, the minute you get the Missile Site, the game is over, because at that point you have the money to hire at least 5 silo workers... if you have 20, you can nuke the field about every 5 seconds, and game over... now lets see the interface of Storm the House 3...
Big difference. Before you could solely upgrade a single gun with damage and what not, and every upgrade put you one step ahead of the weakling enemy swarms.

In Storm the House 3, you actually need to aim for crap, but the ability to modify your guns remains, as well as the ability to drop down modifiable towers such as the Quake Tower, which makes it very hard for enemies to stay on their feet, believe me.

I believe that you can game good on Kongregate, and this game has proven exceptional quality and substantial improvement... I can only wait for Ivory's next installment, if s/he decides to make it.

Now I shall leave you with early-game CHAINSAW MEGADEATH!

And that is all. Game good together!

P.S. All spelling errors in this blog are intentional. I'm still a spelling nazi.
P.S.S. Sorry for the large amount of pictures, someone told me I should put more in... tell me if I went overboard.
P.S.S.S. If the pictures are small, blame the uploader. I'll get them larger next time if I have to.
P.S.S.S.S. I've been playing Storm the House 3 till late because I want the Hard badge, nerdy me, so here's a dilemma I have.

OH SHIT! MECHS! Chainsaws just won't cut it no more D:
NO WAIT! *generic dramatic music plays*


Ok, so sue me, I did this little add-on at 2 AM. Sleep deprivation may cause insanity.

Sheesh it's been a LONG time

But I'm a gamer. I've been on Kongregate ( a lot recently, a site which is a flash portal much like Newgrounds ( Kongregate's unique feature is that there are many games that offer Awards/Achievements, which increase your Gamer Score and give you levels. New awards are added every week.

Recently they've added an online collectible card game of their own called Kongai. The combat system is interesting, albeit weird. It reminds me of the Pokemon collectible card game, except less slow and monotonous.

You can find me often in the Achievement Addicts Anonymous room, playing recent and newer games. Since I consider gaming to be indiscrete, I often play games that offer no reward simply for the fun.

Hmm. I should make my next blog post a rant/self-discussion about how I critique games. Many games that others say 'suck' I say 'rock'... but to each gamer his/her own. Happy trails, and

Game Good together.

The Magic Test

Well, I'm sure everyone's taken this test, but I haven't. So now I'm gonna sidetrack and brag about how smart I am.

Take the Magic: The Gathering 'What Color Are You?' Quiz.

Blue is the 'do-nothing' color. It makes your opponent do nothing. Frustration sets in as everything they try to do is annulled, and they start stumbling around drunkenly attempting to play how they've always played. Manipulation is fun.

I'ma watchin' the game Haze

Since I don't have a PS3 (and my friend does, who will remain unmentioned at this time), he downloaded a demo for this game, Haze. Haze, on first impressions, seems to be a shooter with a twist (although more like a handicap). You have this super suit (Halo, anyone?) which basically pumps a drug into your system that is a painkiller, as well as heightening your perception to inhuman levels (all enemies are highlighted in BRIGHTLY OBVIOUS colors).

I told my friend that this was cheesy. It was much too easy to win, and it seemed like just ANOTHER shooter. I have seen shooting games from Doom to Gears of War to Crysis, and it falls into the "generic shoot 'em up" category... on first impressions.

Then, proud nerd I am, I randomly found a full walkthrough for the game Haze on YouTube (, courtesy of Boner's Games). I started watching it, realizing that it had 15 CHAPTERS. Watching, I actually found that despite the game's linear storyline and (very) repetitive blabber from your allies, (Notably, the Americans are all cool Macho Men and the supposed Intifada (sp?) all have a quote set that could easily align them to being fervent terrorists) the game would be a fun rental in the least. They had that creative drug idea, but the idea of corruption in the military/government is so overused in TV (Law and Order, The West Wing) and gaming (Army of Two, Mercenaries) that it just seems plagiarized.

So, all in all, I'd say that you could game good with this game, give it a try.

Now I'm gonna go get off my butt and get a counter thrown up on the site. Oh, and if anyone's reading this, gimme an idea for what I should put up as a picture... that cat just isn't cutting it.

Angry cat is angry.
