Game: Magic Barrage – Bitferno
Developer: Gameguyz
Release Date: Jan 2015
Price: Freemium

Where do I even start with this game?

Magic Barrage – Bitferno is a MMORPG created by Gameguyz. The game is technically free, but it uses the same tactics that most mobile games are using. You CAN play the game for free. Will you enjoy it if you play for free? Nope! According to Steam, I played the game for 19 minutes. Before I stopped playing, the screen was already filled with “Go VIP” and “Purchase Diamonds”. I get it, you have to make money off the game. The way you do it is just terrible.



One thing that Magic Barrage – Bitferno has going for it, is that it has eight different player classes. The only class that I played as was the Archer. I can’t really say what classes are good. The Archer was cool I guess.

Classes in Magic Barrage – Bitferno



Before going into this, the gameplay part of this review is based only on the Archer class. I assume that other classes play at least a little different. The gameplay is simple, you move around using WASD and you shoot with the left mouse button. The game plays like a tamer/less-hectic version of Geometry Wars. In Geometry Wars, you actually have a reason to avoid getting hit. In this game, I didn’t really feel like I had to avoid any of the enemies’ attacks. Yeah, you’ll get hurt if you get hit by their attacks, but the damage that is done to you is so low that it doesn’t even matter.



I don’t even know what the story is about. The game doesn’t give you a reason to care about anything that goes on in it. For some of the quests, you can just click on the name of the person or place that you have to go and it’ll warp you right there. I don’t know how the world is set out. They didn’t give me a reason to explore in the little time I played the game.



I actually like what some of the art in this game looks like. The player characters are designed well. The monsters look like they were designed at one size and then blown up to at least twice as big. The UI is pretty decent looking, but it looks very similar to the UIs used in other free to play MMOs.



This is weird. I actually like the music in this game. They must have let someone outside of the company make the music, because it was actually good. Some of it almost sounds like they just took music from Doom and put it in.



  • The music is good.
  • The player character designs are at least half decent.
  • The loading screen between zones is cool.


  • Just about everything in this game.
  • Gameplay is boring.
  • The freemium play model.



I know 19 minutes playing a game is probably not enough time to review it, but this game is an exception. There are better free to play MMORPGs out there. Please do not waste your time playing this game.

Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows (D.R.U.G.S.)


February 22, 2011


D.R.U.G.S. is the new post-hardcore band, Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows’, debut album.

Track by Track:

“If You Think This Song Is About You, It Probably Is”

This song shows a lot of similarities to vocalist’s past band Chiodos.  But this shows quite a bit of musical maturity and progression from Craig Owens.  It has some catchy lyrics, but nothing to special.  This isn’t a terrible song to start an album off with but it may not have been the best choice.  Well done, 7.5/10

“The Only Thing You Talk About”

A little generic, but that is just the whole post-hardcore genre in its entirety.  Even though it is quite a entertaining song to listen to, it is just exactly like everything else in this genre.  Not bad, but not special 7/10

“Graveyard Dancing”

I am a big fan of the intro for this song.  This song demonstrates how musical hardcore music could actually be, and even if you aren’t a “Hardcore” fan, I would recommend this song.  Great Job 9.5/10

“Mr. Owl Ate My Metal Worm”

Even though this song is very simplistic musically, the vocals and effects make it entertaining.  One thing that made this song as good as it is would have to be the build-up for the whole first half of the song.  Not something you are used to hearing, 8/10

“Sex Life”

This is the low point of this album so far.  It usually happens around this point in the album, track 5-6.  Just a really annoying chorus, it just seems a little to stressed on “Sex Life”, it just seems like those are the only words he says.  Not so good, 5/10

“Laminated E.T. Animal”

This one gave me a surprise with the acoustics at the beginning.  Then it went towards “Hardcore” land again.  That is one thing that really annoys me about a lot of songs, this group has the potential to actually change the genre, but it just seems like they can’t progress to that next level consistently.  It is still pretty catchy if you are a hardcore fan, but I wouldn’t be able to suggest this to fans of other genres. It doesn’t show that quality 7/10

“Stop Reading, Start Doing Pushups”

More HARDCORE, another low point, it just ruins all they had going in this album so far.  If there was one song that just seemed to ruin the flow of this album, it IS THIS ONE!  Terrible song compared to the rest, if anything I could have seen this being an “unreleased” track from this album that they could release after a year or two.  Bad choice, 4/10

“I’m the Rehab, You’re the Drugs”

They show a little more musicality in the intro, but once the actual song starts that fades pretty quickly.  It slowly makes a comeback in the chorus.  Every part of this song shows some theory except the verses, they are just the same power chords over and over again.  But that is music, 7/10

“I’m Here to Take the Sky”

No. 0/10

“The Hangman”

The intro sounded pretty cool, a nice effect on the keyboard.  Finally more musicality that I knew they could utilize.  It just seems they only fulfill their full potential once or twice and album.  Pretty good, 8.5/10

“My Swagger Has a First Name”

Why do they have to end the album like this, REALLY?  They go from a pretty good song, to this?  It doesn’t seem to flow very well, making it not the right choice.  It slowly makes its way back to a better zone, but I don’t know if it has a chance to redeem itself.  They show some more musicality about 3/4 of the way through.  Ok, 7.5/10

Chart Positions:

US 200 – 29

US Hard Rock – 1

US Digital – 14

Alright well that is it, thanks for reading. Overall this album got a 6.5/10, not bad but not great.

Through the Eyes
October 30, 2001

Overall this album isn’t too bad, I mean it could honestly have another song or two that are just really good.  Besides that issue, the album flows through very well and tells a intense story about his life I’m guessing.  I mean the guitar parts are very basic riffs, and same with the bass parts, and the drums aren’t really anything flashy.  It is just they are probably one of my favorite Nu Metal bands, that never really got super popular, with about 2,400,000 scrobbles on at the present time.  They have had a following, but in my opinion never really made it to the fame that they deserved.  Now to the album.
1. The whole album is connected through the story that Chris Volz tells with his vocals.
2.  You don’t have to love heavy metal to enjoy this semi-heavy album.
1. A lot of the songs sound almost the same, but that is kind of what you get with Nu Metal, or just metal in general.
2.  Every song seems to be very negative. (That doesn’t always have to be bad it is just a little repeatative)
So honestly, the 2 cons are pretty much the same thing, just being repeatative.  I think this album gets a solid 7.5/10.  It is a good album, but nothing worth listening to OVER AND OVER AND OVER again, if you know what I mean.  It just kinda gets old after awhile.

If you didn’t notice I tried a different format for this review, I think I’m going to use this style for the rest of my reviews.

Artist – Destroy the Runner

Album – I, Lucifer

Release Date – April 15, 2008

Genre – Progressive Metal

Extra Information – On April 15, 2008, Destroy the Runner released I, Luciver. The album has a more progressive sound, with less screaming than their previous album. It charted in the U.S. on the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart at #27 and on the Top Heatseekers chart at #25.

Track by Track –

Mono: Crumbs for the Murder – They start the album with a sort of taste of how they have changed, and I think it is actually for the better.  The guitar riffs are very good as they always are with Destroy the Runner, a great job on clean vocals, I became addicted to this song the first time I listened to it.  10/10

Di: Isabella’s – Another song with an awesome guitar riff throughout the entire song, and it just has this sort of hypnotizing factor that got me hooked after the first time.  It is a great song they show what kind of music they could make.  10/10

Tri: Mr. and Mrs. Cuckoldom – Honestly I think this is one of the weaker songs on the album, but that doesn’t mean it is bad but it is really still a good song, not as much of a hook, but it is still a track that is worth giving a shot. 8/10

Tetra: A Bag of Marbles – And right back to the awesome addicting songs that I love.  It took me no time at all to tell that I would love this song.  I don’t know what they did, but these songs are very addicting and I have been hooked since the first time I’ve listened to them.  10/10

Penta: I, Lucifer – The title track of the album is still just as good, usually the title track is one of my least favorite tracks on the album.  There are some very good guitar riffs and lyrics in this song.  I have been listening to this one a lot lately as well. 10/10

Hexa: It’s Always Cold in Paris – Very different flow to this song.  Kind of a generic type of chorus.  But sometimes generic is the way to go on a song or two in an album.  But it is still a pretty good song.  9/10

Hepta: A Pathetic Psalm – This song kind of has the same feel as their last album.  I didn’t really get hooked on this song.  It is still a very decent song, 7/10.

Octa: Luxuria – They seem to keep going back to the heavier aspects from their last album, this song is much better than the last one, it actually has that hook, that just gets you.  9/10

Ennea: On Falling Leaf – This one starts out with what I would like to say is an attempt of having a metal type feel without going to try and be to heavy, with some pretty bad background screams.  The Clean vocals really help this song out.  8/10

Deca: A Novel of War – This has that sort of aggressive feel at the beginning, and then it calms down to what the rest of the album is really at.  It sounds pretty cool. 9/10

Hendeca: A Mountain So Big, A Question So Small – Such a boring start for the last song on an album, but it all starts to come together as the song progresses.  10/10.

Sorry that this review took so long for me to post.  I have been kind of busy.  But it is up now, and hope you enjoy it,  email me for any suggestions.


Simyard is an online Baseball Manager Simulator that I started messing around with just over a year ago. For the free portion of the game (Park) you have your own team that you manage through the years.  You can try to find more players, or you could release some that you have.  One thing I really enjoy about this game is the community for the most part is pretty nice.  It isn’t really all that big of a game right now, but it’s nice.  The only real downside for me, is the downtime.  But to almost eliminate the downtime, you can purchase a “Stadium Permit” that allows you to have multiple teams, not all in the park but in leagues such as “Major”, “AAA”, “AA”, “A”, “Rookie”.  And you have all of these other teams that you can manage, now I don’t have a “Stadium Permit”, so I don’t know how the other teams work, but I do know that it gives you more teams.  Now to the actual review.


7/10, they are just images but they get the job done.


7/10, slow but it is really kind of addicting.


10/10, the community is great, they are very helpful when you are trying to figure stuff out.  The mods do a very good job of keeping the chat under control.

So really this game is a pretty good game, it get a 24/30 (8/10).

Sorry about this being such a short review, But it gets the job done, and that is all for this review.  If you have any suggestions email me at  Thanks for reading.


Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

By: LucasArts and KROME Studios

I know I haven’t reviewed a game in a while, but I was finishing up playing through this game.  Also I stopped playing this game for 2-3 months after I originally started.  But I’ll just get to the review.

Pros: The game is very fun to play and has decent graphics for the PSP (that is the only version I played I cannot say anything about any other of the platforms it was released on).  In the game you get to pretty much create the “Star Wars” story in your own way and have an impact throughout the game.  You collect these things called “Force Points” as you kill your enemies.  It kind of reminded me of experience from most MMORPGs.  You got to customize your lightsaber and costume, I thought that was pretty cool.

Cons: The story in this game is very short and has a terrible end of the game. (At least on the first time through I don’t know if it is different the second time, you never know).  That was really the only “Con” I noticed.

General Rankings:

Gameplay – Honestly there was a little much loading for my tastes but it didn’t really load to long, it was only a few seconds. 8/10

Story – This was the worst part of the game by far, one of the bottom 10 stories of games that I have ever completed. 2/10

Controls – They weren’t any better or worse than I expected when I first started playing the game. 7/10

Difficulty – Well, it was a little on the easy side, but what can you do about that you can’t make it so difficult that nobody can complete the game.  7/10

Graphics – They were good enough to get the idea of what was going on, and who you were attacking, but the best part is that the graphics in the actual game are the same if not a little bit better than the cutscenes.  8/10

Overall counting Pros and Cons:

This game gets a 8.4/10.


Well there were some other game-modes that I never really got time to play that much of.  Such as “Order 66” From what I played of that, it is pretty much seeing if you can survive 66 waves of Clone Troopers and Jedi.

We Came as Romans – To Plant a Seed
Released: November 3, 2009
Genre: Post-Hardcore
Length: 36:31
Label: Equal Vision
Producer: Joey Sturgis
Track By Track:
To Plant a Seed – This is a great way to start off an album, just right away as in-your-face as these guys really get.  They did a really good job at having a melody in a hardcore song.  That doesn’t seem to happen that often these days.  Great breakdowns, chorus, and verses.  Pretty much a perfect song.  The way I interpret the lyrics of this song I think they are trying to send the message that we are not the last generation to live here, that we have many more to come after us to live on this Earth as well.  I am not entirly sure though.  I will give this one a 10/10.

Broken Statues – They used a very cool effect on the drums in this one at the beginning that is a plus.  This is one of the most “catchy” songs on this whole album.  I don’t know why it just kept getting stuck in my head.  Very unique rhythmically, something that you don’t hear to much now-a-days, just pure talent.  Very good flow to this song, I don’t know how to describe it I am just going to give it a 10/10.

Intentions (featuring Tyler “Telle” Smith) – Another song that just gets right into it.  Yet again, very good rhythmically and GREAT flow from screams to clean, this song just flows smoothly from beginning to end.  They wrote another song that seems to be about love/compassion.  I am not quite sure how I interpret this song.  Great breakdown and then a build-up to the end.  AMAZING another 10/10.

Roads That Don’t End and Views That Never Cease – This was the first song I ever heard by them, and it was an instant addiction.  I have not been able to go without listening to these guys for a while.  Another one that seems to be about love/compassion.  Besides that, again the song flows very well, has a lot of quality clean sections and screaming sections.  The whole feeling of the song (instrumentally) changes with the vocals.  GREAT BREAKDOWN, definately the highlight of the song.  Another 10/10 for these guys.

Dreams – This song is actually my ringtone I like it that much.  It has the elements of a really good song.  It starts up with a very intense build-up, then just stays building up throughout the first minute or so.  This is the first song that they incorperate “Gang Vocals” – when the whole band chants a lyric.  It works great in this song, it was the title-track of their EP “Dreams”.  They have some very good lyrics in this song as well, with a good breakdown.  And yet again, another 10/10.

We Are the Reasons – This is another very well written song, has a very good melody at the beginning then goes into a Chorus type riff.  I really like how they keep incorperating the two vocalists that they have.  Always alternating, there isn’t a song that one of them do not sing.  Another pretty good breakdown, still very unique.  I give it another 10/10.

Beliefs – This song has a pretty good progression or flow to it, it seems more of your typical hardcore song, but at the same time isn’t.  A lot of clean vocals for the majority of it.  Very good mix when the screaming does come in though, it really has the same calibar of the rest of the album.  It gets a 10/10.

I Will Not Reap Destruction – AWESOME INTRO, I just love that part of the song, and it just stays with that feeling for the whole song.  It is probably one of my favorite songs on the album.  A good breakdown mixed with good verse riffs and choruses.  It just adds up to a very good song, and it gets a 10/10.

Searching, Seeking, Reaching, Always – This one took a little while to grow on me, but ultimately it did.  And I love this song so much, it isn’t my favorite on the album but is in my top ten favorite songs total now.  A LOT OF CLEAN SINGING.  It just is a very good song, and it gets a 10/10.

An Ever-Growing Wonder – This is a good pick to end the album, get a very “catchy” song and just end an album with it to get people hooked.  I will be the first to tell you, that it worked.  I now can’t stop listening to this album, I haven’t gone 1 week without listening to it, sense I first heard these guys.  Has a very good flow to it, with screaming and clean vocals.  I love it, and it gets a 10/10.

Well, that is We Came as Romans – To Plant a Seed (Album Review).  As a full album it gets a perfect 10/10.   Hope this helped you make a decision on if you were thinking about buying this album.  If not thanks for reading, follow us on twitter for updates and email me any suggestions for an album to review at,

Beneath The Sky

In Loving Memory


Release Date – May 11, 2010

Track By Track:

The Opening – This is one of those tracks just made to open into the next one at the beginning of an album.  It is pretty much just a breakdown.  And for the history of this band, I just assumed that the whole album would be just like this song.  And that would be ok, so it gets a good 8/10.

Sorry I’m Lost – Upon first listening to this song, I just thought that is was mediocre nothing really special.  But as it went on it just shows that they got a lot better since their last album.  Their clean vocalist has shown a lot of improvement. This one as of all their songs has one great breakdown. 9.5/10

Tears, Bones, and Desire -The first time I listened to this song I just got reminded of their older stuff.  And I loved it right away, it just got stuck in my head after one listen.  Pretty good chorus with clean vocals and then just right back into the face-smashing riffs. (haha) This gets a 8.5/10

Terror Starts at Home – This song is just a long breakdown with a good beat that just makes your adrenaline pump.  This one gets a 8/10
A Tale from the Northside – I like this song a lot.  It just sounds really heavy good old Beneath The Sky.  This one gets a 9/10

In Loving Memory – This song seems to have a strong message.  It is the album song.  The clean vocals and screams really work well together how they combined them.  Before this album they could never really do that.  This song gets a 10/10
To Die For – Another song that is just a breakdown with a different drum beat and screaming.  The clean vocals work very well for a chorus for this song.  This song gets a 8/10

Blood and Seperation – This song just is a breakdown (again) after so many songs like this I kinda got bored of listening to this album just seems so repeatitive.  It is just as good as the other songs, but is is almost the exact same thing. 5/10
Static – This song is different it refreshes my mind from just constant breakdowns.  10/10
Embrace/Hidden Track – This doesn’t seem like the same old Beneath The Sky material.  This one is pretty good, 7/10



That is it for this review, if you have any suggestions for another album for me to review just email me at  And follow me on twitter to keep up to date with what I am doing at
