It’s funny how things work out so well for us. A few years ago, I was on a flight to Europe and the guy across from me had a laptop with a bunch of movies. I was sitting next to him and was enjoying the movie and then all of a sudden, I realized that I was a little bit bored and decided to play a game of Monopoly. I had made up my mind that I would never play Monopoly again after that. I was wrong.
The guy next to me in Europe was playing Monopoly with his wife – and he was winning a bunch of money. I was sitting next to him and was trying to decide whether or not he should stop playing. He looked at me and said, “I was just kidding!” I didn’t feel like laughing and just said, “You were?” And he said, “Yeah!” I was like, “Well, I was too.
I was also sitting next to the guy in Europe who was playing Monopoly with his wife and he was also winning a bunch of money. He told me he was going to have a beer and then he was going to go watch the NBA. I was like, What the hell. I’m just going to go back to my game.
So in the end, Colt Vahn is a video game and The Game is a lot like Monopoly. But unlike Monopoly, you won’t have to actually play the game yourself. Instead you can just be a spectator. But that’s not all. If you have a friend with the same interests, there’s a good chance you and your friend could be playing the game together.
The game has some interesting mechanics, but I think we’re going to see more of these like-minded friends and games because we’re going to get to see some more of the game’s characters. It’s like you can be part of an online poker tournament without actually having to play the game.
Of course, there is a chance that the game could be boring, like the online versions of slots and blackjack. But for a game that could put the fantasy of role-playing games to a new level, its great for playing with friends and co-workers. There are no in-game events, just a bunch of random, unrelated missions that you don’t really have to play. It’s only the online version that has things that you have to actually have to do.
It’s sort of like your fantasy of playing a game of Dungeons and Dragons without actually having to do anything. The only thing that really makes the game boring is that there are no real quests in it, just a bunch of random encounters that you don’t have to do.
That said, you can of course play for free. There’s a bunch of missions in the game that are free (and some of them are free enough), but you do get the sense that you’re not going to see much in-game activity for a long time. When you do, it’s usually just to kill a bunch of monsters in a single area, so nothing too exciting.
Well, it kinda is. The game starts out in a dark forest, and if you die you lose everything. You can save though. So you can either keep going or just die. I’m not sure if there was even any point in saving until you actually found a quest.
The story mode in Juice Entertainment is pretty much what you’d expect. There are some awesome music tracks and it’s an RPG in which you can kill anything you want to. If you survive you can even use special powers, you can make a bunch of different items, and the bosses are all really cool. The game is pretty short though, so if you’re just going to kill monsters and have no reason to save then it’s probably for sucky.
