Review: "Nihilumbra" - Wii U

Reviewed by Teen Gamer for FamilyFriendlyGaming

SCORE: 70/100

Nihilumbra did not get enough the first time it entered Family Friendly Gaming Universe. It came back for a second helping. Nihilumbra said: "yes sir give me another." In case you are not aware of what I am referencing - Nihilumbra was reviewed by Family Friendly Gaming on the Playstation Vita. It has now been released on the Wii U. There is now a two player cooperative mode - which is pretty cool.

We are supposed to believe that these insects just happened to look this way by mistake? NO! They had to be designed this way. That is the only logical explanation.

An interview with Becky Wade, Author of A Love Like Ours

Can love really conquer all? For the walking wounded who carry deep pain, a phrase like that can seem trite. Becky Wade weaves a moving tale of the hope of redemptive love in her new book, A Love Like Ours (Bethany House/May 5, 2015/ISBN: 978-0764211096/$13.99). In it she introduces us to former Marine Jake Porter, who carries scars far deeper than the one that marks his face. After serving his country in the Middle East, he returns home struggling with symptoms of PTSD. His pain causes him to live a solitary life, avoiding relationships even with his dearest loved ones.

Q: What is the overarching theme of A Love Like Ours?

Review: "Suspension Railroad Simulator" - Wii U

Reviewed by WMG for FamilyFriendlyGaming

SCORE: 33/100

Excitement welled up in my brain when I heard Family Friendly Gaming was provided download codes for Suspension Railroad Simulator on the Wii U. The concept of this simulation game sounded awesome. Suspension Railroad Simulator also sounded very family friendly. Taking these elevated trains around Germany sounded like one of the most amazing ideas ever.

Most of the songs on this album are themed around a search for worth and a search for love. As I wrote lyrics, I was in a spot where I found myself asking God for words that would speak life into my existence. Two of my favorite songs on the album are Speak and Rest. They are two songs that go together, both musically and lyrically. The lyrics joyfully express a thankfulness in being found and called "son", while asking for words that speak worth in the midst of loneliness and guilt. The final song on the album, Sanquine, is a song I wrote about six years ago as a kind of letter to a friend, even though it is quite autobiographical. It explores the unforgiveness of people and tries to answer the question - Is there love after failure? Although the song asks questions, it declares that, yes, there is still love. Human love may fail, but a Godly love is still there. Still After anything.

This is going to be fun, like really fun. Ten years ago when we released "The Question," we had no idea that we would be here today, still touring and with a brand new album. To commemorate the anniversary of our biggest album and to celebrate our new album, "YOU WERE NEVER ALONE," we will be playing songs from "The Question" that we have never played live, along with all the ones that we have been playing for years, and brand new songs from the new record.

“You could have any unmarried man in Thornbeck, and marriage is made more difficult when you are poor. I am simply trying to look out for what is best for you.”

Odette nodded and stared down at the table. She wanted love, but if she kept poaching, sooner or later Jorgen would find out. Could he love her then?

Reviewed by Sam for FamilyFriendlyGaming

SCORE: 60/100

Schrodinger’s Cat and the Raiders of the Lost Quark is one of the strangest video games I have ever played. Family Friendly Gaming was provided a download code for this home console video game on the Playstation 4. Schrodinger’s Cat and the Raiders of the Lost Quark was over two gigs. Double over the ceiling Family Friendly Gaming has. You know what that means? Schrodinger’s Cat and the Raiders of the Lost Quark should have been released in a physical format.

Reviewed by Teen Gamer for FamilyFriendlyGaming

SCORE: 75/100

Sega continues to resurrect their older games in 3D on the Nintendo 3DS. I wish more companies would do that. It is really cool to see that, and it has to cost less in development costs. I hope Sega compiles all of these games onto one cartridge and releases them in the physical format. Like the Sega Genesis Collection disc that is so popular and well respected.

SCORE: 54/100

Super Smash Bros is the center of multiple controversies. How can the content in this franchise get worse, yet the rating drops from thirteen and older to ten and older? How many times can gamers do the same thing before they get bored with it? The addictive nature of Super Smash Bros may be a part of the answer to that last question.

STORIES FROM THE MISSION FIELD from AMTC (Actors, Models, and Talent for Christ)

They’ve played with some of the biggest names in Christian music. Now Luke Fortner and his band Relinquish have a shot to take the stage in front of 15,000 people… and they need your help!

Luke began performing at the age of three, taking piano lessons, and later learning guitar. While other children were playing hide and seek in their clubhouses, Luke’s parents actually built him a stage in his basement for him to practice on as a kid. Beginning his career as a solo artist, Luke saw the need to develop his talent through AMTC, an experience he equates as invaluable.

Companies are constantly stretching the boundaries of the definition of a video game. There are so many creative, and talented people within the video game industry that it is an exciting time to be involved. Music On Electric Guitar is one of those games. Technically this game was initially release on the Nintendo DSi. It has been re-released on the Nintendo 3DS. I love it when games get re-released.

Apps continue to march over to the Nintendo 3DS. Adventure Bar Story is the most recent app port to enter Family Friendly Gaming Universe. Thankfully there are no in-app purchased in the Nintendo 3DS version of Adventure Bar Story. Pay $5.99 one time, and never have to pay for Adventure Bar Story on the 3DS ever again. Which is really cool for families.

This very odd looking creature is native to Southern China but is now on the endangered list and is threatened with extinction. It is the largest salamander, and amphibian, in the world- reaching up to 6 feet in length. Evolutionists date it back 170 million years to the Jurassic era! If that's the case why is it still here? It belongs in our ever growing category of "living fossils". That is - animals that supposedly lived so long ago according to evolutionary theory, yet they are still alive today and have changed hardly at all! It totally debunks the theory. God created every living thing in the beginning...

Reviewed by Luke for FamilyFriendlyGaming

SCORE: 71/100

Bloo Kid, and Bloo Kid 2 are apps. Bloo Kid 2 has been ported over to the Nintendo 3DS. This makes perfect sense since there are so many nods to Nintendo in this downloadable only hand held video game. I also noticed nods to other companies franchises like Sonic the Hedgehog. Part of the fun of playing Bloo Kid 2 is finding the Mario, Sonic, Kirby and other references.
