Review: "Hazumi" - Nintendo 3DS

Reviewed by Yolanda for FamilyFriendlyGaming

SCORE: 78/100

Hazumi is a Break Out kind of a video game with two major differences. First off we play within a confined space. Second off we can influence the direction of the ball. Which is really cool in these Turnabout kind of levels. I just remembered a third difference. I will get into that in my next little paragraph.

Review: "The Ether" by Laurice E. Molinari

Reviewer: Jamie for CTFDevourer

Spiritual Content Recommendation Scale: 2/5

Vero fell hard to the ground. He felt as if someone had punched him hard in the back, followed by overwhelming relief. He rose to his feet and stood, magnificent alabaster wings jutting out between his shoulders. The sky closed up and the angelic beings disappeared from sight. Vero turned to the man. “Am I…” Vero began.

Elias Phinn copes with his painful reality by slipping into the imaginary realm of Warilia, a world that colors his every waking moment and feels more real than the actual one around him. When his carry-on luggage is switched with that of the beautiful and mysterious Clara, Elias becomes convinced that she is a Warilian diplomat's daughter. But as the two become friends and their carefully constructed words begin to crack, Elias must save them both before everything falls apart.

Don’t let go

Don’t let go, don’t let go, don’t let go, just hold on tight. Do you like my follow up to the hit song from Frozen? Yeah, me either. But on a serious note, we are going to talk about holding fast to the things of God when we are being tossed about by the storms of life.

Note to Teens: I wrote this article for an older crowd, figuring you have different interests in movie choices. I know I did when I was younger. But, it’s not really the movie I’m pushing here, as much as the message. Are you too young for this film’s theme? I don’t think so. Give it a read, see what you think. Your film reviewer, Phil Boatwright

So, what’s the best movie ever made? A subjective question, if ever there was one. That’s the magic of movies: some folks will enjoy a film that may seem an endurance test for others. It horrifies me that not only did people go see films like 27 Dresses and License to Wed, they actually bought the DVDs, as well. But that’s the subject for another column. Perhaps it could be called Bad Movies and Why We Love Them.

Meanwhile, on to the subject at hand – the best movie ever made. While Casablanca or Citizen Kane or Lawrence of Arabia may be prime examples of technical and artistic innovators, I challenge you to suggest a more important message than that found in It’s A Wonderful Life.

Hear me out.

SWORDS, ROMANCE . . . AND BEN FRANKLIN?

'Beyond the Mask' Blasts Open New Genre in Christian Films

Sports, glimpses of heaven and parenting all scored big in the burgeoning market of faith-and-family films. But now a family-adventure genre blows open as Burns Family Studios deliver on BEYOND THE MASK, a swashbuckling serving of U.S. history as a former British mercenary overcomes his past, wins his beloved Charlotte and--with the vast ingenuity of one Ben Franklin--defuses a plot of, well, historical proportions.

It was another exhausting day, and I was listening to "Centerfield" by John Fogerty. I was notified another game had come in for review. I will admit my mind was not in the right place. Especially for another download code. You have no idea how much I have come to despise download codes. We always prefer physical copies at Family Friendly Gaming.

Questions for Evolutionists

by Don Batten for: Creation.com

How did new biochemical pathways, which involve multiple enzymes working together in sequence, originate? Every pathway and nano-machine requires multiple protein/enzyme components to work. How did lucky accidents create even one of the components, let alone 10 or 20 or 30 at the same time, often in a necessary programmed sequence? Evolutionary biochemist Franklin Harold wrote, “we must concede that there are presently no detailed Darwinian accounts of the evolution of any biochemical or cellular system, only a variety of wishful speculations.”

JUJU is a downloadable video game on the Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and Personal Computer. This game clocks in at 2.3 gigs on the PS3. You know what that means. JUJU should have been provided to families in the physical format. Many families can not afford to have a large enough Internet usage plan to download games like JUJU.

SCORE: 58/100

Last Inua is not the first video game to include religious teachings, nor will it be the last. In fact the history of religious teachings in video games has been going on for almost as long as the industry has been around. Normally gamers are exposed to Eastern religious teachings. There is also a thriving Christian video game market place.

The Crew is a video game with one foot in the past, and one foot in the future. Some of the technological achievements in this next gen video game are very impressive. Like mapping of certain cities. Getting to go to certain areas in the United States. The story and racing mechanics are definitely from the last console generation.

Don’t buy into Churchianity

No I did not misspell Christianity. No I do not need to fire my editor. Yes, I intended to write Churchianity. This week I want to focus on the difference between Churchianity and Christianity and how perseverance paves the path from one to the other. They may seem the same to the casual observer but in reality, there is a chasm of difference between the two. One leads to life.

Review: "Peggle 2" - Xbox One/Xbox 360/Playstation 4(tested)

Reviewed by Sam for FamilyFriendlyGaming

SCORE: 70/100

Peggle 2 is one of the coolest puzzle games I have ever played. Players launch a ball down into what looks like a pachinko machine. The goal is to get all of the red color orbs. Once an orb is touched by the ball in Peggle 2 it will go away. The ball may need to get to the bottom first on certain colors.
