Rainbow Billy: The Curse Of The Leviathan... Reviewed!



Story: The official description for this game's story is: Rainbow Billy tells a universal coming of age story about dealing with changes in the world and accepting ourselves and the others around us! Sometimes it only takes a conversation, empathy, and a new point of view to make a world of difference. - Skybound Games

I wanted to list the actual description of the game for the parents out there. It's a really awesome story that adults could even benefit from... because there are countless people in the world who have no idea how to speak to others. It's actually a game that can speak to gamers on both sides of the coin, and I don't believe that anyone is one way all the time... because seasons, situations, and moods... change. The Leviathan stripped away the vibrant joy of the world because of something caused by Rainbow Billy, and so... Rainbow Billy and his friends band together on a 2.5D Puzzle-Platforming (taking a breath) RPG-Infused-Adventure to undo the curse of the Leviathan.


Gameplay: When it comes to Rainbow Billy: The Curse Of The Leviathan's gameplay, I really appreciate It (I know it sounds weird, but hear me out). I haven't completed the game in its entirety, I just want to say that... but the 10.1 hours of gameplay I've experienced have been amazingly cool.

As a dad, this would come to mind for my daughter because it looks great + the fun factor is there, it's challenging without being overly challenging, and... the combat system is actually tied to mental and emotional health.

When you're taking on a creature, you have a combat system that challenges you to either hit button commands at a certain time, match up shapes in a slot machine type set up, select the correct buttons using your analog stick and buttons, etc. If you do it correctly, you get the shapes that your team presents to use in battle to defeat the creature. You have to either look at the shapes revealed by the creature to select the correct characters and start chipping away at getting them out of their... bad mood via selecting the right things to say (which is awesome) or guess if you responded in a cold-hearted way.

You aren't going to actually defeat the creature if you aren't being considerate of their feelings, so chip away at it before they decrease your morale to 0. Rather than say anything else, here's the First 30!





Replay Value + Visuals: When it comes to the replay value, there is plenty to go back to, you have multiple islands to hope and take on multiple creatures. You aren't just going to small islands either, and part of the challenge is you actually making it to those islands before your Rainbow Fuel runs low. If you don't make it to a new island that allows you to create a safe space from the Leviathan, it will pull your ship under (granted you just go poof and go back to your last safe space).

I found a lot of interest in this because it requires strategy. You can't just go to an island, so you have to use other islands, and make potential safe spaces on closer islands if you want to reach the desired location. You have over 85 islands and caves to explore, over 60 creatures to capture, and the team also says that there are over 30 hours of gameplay. I can see that, I've just been roaming around the sea trying to figure out how to reach gray islands in different ways and I'm already 10+ hours in.

I can't forget the visuals that you saw above, they totally remind me of that old-school Steam Boat Willy style art mixed with Paper Mario. They look great, and I can't help but to use roam around on land or sea and just admire them at times. This includes the cutscenes, and I know the game is Rated E for Everyone, but... I think they did a damn good job with the visuals for what I feel is a game more geared towards kids. Trust me, you won't be missing out on anything if you play this game as an older gamer, and you just might learn something or reignite your desire to be a nicer person.



Price: You can get Rainbow Billy: The Curse Of The Leviathan for $29.99... which is actually a really good deal. The game plays smoothly, looks great, has depth, and it's a full adventure with plenty of replay value. I don't always recommend games, but I would like for parents to check this game out for their children. It touches on various personalities like introverts, highly self-conscious creatures, bullies, etc.

I really like the message in the... confrontations (because they aren't really battles, but at the same time they are). I think that it's one of those games that can open up a conversation between you and your children, to be honest. Not only that, it could actually reinforce conflict resolution and things like that and just increase that overall awareness.

The game is available on Steam, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and... PlayStation!

Bots buy out Xbox Mini Fridge? Their HUMAN creators are responsible!

Let's keep it real, bots have no need for a damn Xbox Mini Fridge, dude! It's the people who created the freaking bots that came through and allegedly bought them out in 30 seconds or so. They suck!

Microsoft has a way to stop this, and all other companies do too but do they really care if they're still being sold? I think we owe it to the bot makers to leave them stuck with all the fridges they bought, don't pay more. Every time someone buys something like that, it just temps these losers to do it each and every time. I'm calling you losers because you mess it up for the rest of us, we can't even enjoy things like we use to because of these people, dude!

The same thing happened with hand sanitizer, then the bleach and toilet paper. We have to start fighting back by keeping our wallets closed to greedy resellers. Xbox is doing another wave of pre-orders in December anyway, so please don't feed the greed.


We had to wait in line for pre-orders, now bots can just buy every damn thing.

Mask Up Mondays: Muse Dash - Nisegao + Pranks + Treats!

Candy Day 2021 is right around the corner, and I can't just leave October without delivering some sort of scary fun + treats! After you check out this Mask Up Mondays episode... enjoy some extras. - Blu



For the parents and grandparents looking to do some baking with the little gamers in your life, I have eaten more than my fair share of these cookies... and I give them an 8 out of 10!


The Walmart brownies are a strong 4 out of 10, but they jump up to an 8 if you mix in chocolate chips and take out the candy bones. I think kids will enjoy the candy bones, but they got in the way of me enjoying the actual brownie... I really don't like that. I put pecans in mine and went full beast mode on the yumminess! The Disney Hocus Pocus brownies were a 6 out of the box. - RkRk

Got a $100 for the Xbox Series X Mini Fridge?

When you think about it, this is a mini-fridge, you can get them... anywhere. Then you get a huge smile on your face over the fact that it's a freaking Xbox Series X Mini Fridge, like... heck yeah, Happy Thanksahallowishmas to me if there were ever such a holiday!

The Pre-Order window is almost here... literally, you can start pre-ordering on Oct. 19 (2021) and I doubt the window will be open long because you can only manufacture so many for the holiday window. I don't know how long these things will be in production, so if it's something you will end up kicking yourself in the butt about for not jumping on when you get the chance... pre-order when it's go time. Collectors will certainly want to snatch one of these up, just make sure no one opens it up. 

I hope the mass buyers sit this one out... because they've certainly gotten in the way of pre-order opportunities for a number of people all in the name of greed. Take 5, sit down, take a nap, forget about the pre-order window if you intend is to buy as many as you can in order to make someone pay you more than $100. Anyway, if you get one... enjoy your mini-fridge when you get it and... game on!


I know it's a fridge, I know this, but... I would've loved to see some USB-C outlets on this thing or something or have the top of the fridge be a wireless charging station.

Minecraft most malware-infected game on the market with 228k users affected

As people are looking for ways to unwind at home, the gaming industry has been one of the primary places people set their eyes on. Not only is it a way to entertain yourself for hours on end, but it is also a place for people to connect, which is otherwise hard to do during the pandemic.
 
According to data presented to us by a VPN team, 303,827 individuals’ devices were affected by gaming-related malware and unwanted software between July 1, 2020, and June 30, 2021.
 
Mobile games are also a major threat for gamers. As many as 50,644 users attempted to download 10,488 unique files disguised as the ten most-played mobile games, generating a total of 332,570 detections.
 
Minecraft was by far the most popular game on both PC and mobile platforms for dangerous app distributors to hide behind. On PC, nearly 185 thousand users were affected with over 3 million malware and unwanted software detections. On mobile, the number of victims exceeds 44 thousand for the period. Unwanted software includes files like adware, spyware, and so on.
 
There are various versions of Minecraft and a plethora of mods (modifications that may be placed on top of the basic game to diversify gameplay) may account for its enormous popularity. Because mods are unofficial and developed by users, they can be used to hide dangerous payloads or undesirable software.
 
Another one of the most well-known game titles worldwide, The Sims 4, was the second most often used title to distribute unwanted files. Over 43 thousand users were impacted, with detections closing in on 1.3 million. - V. Perez
