Oliverde8's blue Website



For those who have not noticed I have a Book section to my website, where I do try and list all the books I have read or I am reading with some comments as well as reviews. Lately I have not been very diligent in keeping it up to date. The last update is from "15/04/2018"; but things are not as bad as they look. I have been doing a lot of rereads recently. Those who knows me are probably aware that I am a huge Wheel of Time fan. In my opinion it s the best series out there; even throught I can understand that some people don t like Robert Jordan s writing style. I started re-read ...

Assassin's Creed Origins

After a year of break AC is back. And this time we are going back way back in the past, into Egypt. Agains public opinion I quite liked AC Unity & Sydicate which I thought was both good games; even throught they were not exceptional. Syndicate was better with both twins being more fun while Unity was quite dull. But well compared to Black Flag, both remained unexceptional games. The main issue with both games was the story and the repetitive side quests. Black flag offered more diversity as the map represented a bigger area; but both Unity & Syndicate were in a single City and ...

Kerbal Space Program (KSP)

I am not sure why it took me so long to write a review about this game, that said I haven t written a review for Maniaplanet either. But that s another story. KSP is one of these games I never intended to actually play, I hadn t ever heard of it, and even if I had would see no reason to do play it But one evening one of the twitch streames(braincage) I tend to watch started playing the game, at first I didn t think much of the game, braincage was discovering the game at it was hard to see any purpose to the game. Not sure how, I ended up in AkinesisGaming s channel. At that time Aki wa ...

For what's worth, my thought on Magento2

I have been working with Magento in general for over 3 years now. And with Magento2 in particular for 1 year or so. So I thought it was time to make a small article about what I think about Magento2. It brand new Well Magento2 comes with plenty of new things, Zend2 & it s Dependency Injection System, which is enchanced in M2. The api layer for interacting with the DB. The native rest/soap api s. Magento 1 did have a few, but M2 make it much easier to create new API s sing the api layer. Composer out of the box (finally) Improved layout systemp with ui ...

The Witcher 3 - Wild Hunt

It has been awhile since last time I have written a review for a game. I have played a few games since Lego Marvel such as the latest Lare Croft (for which I might still write a review),The Asassins Creeds, Kerbal Space program which is among my favorite games at the moment and the Witcher III For some reasons I didn t want to play the Witcher, but I saw quite a few positive reviews and my friend told me the game was great that I had to play it. So I bought it 2 month ago and OMG the game is good. Graphics Graphics are great, the environments looks extremely pretty. While walking/runnin ...

Lego Marvel

It has been a long long time since I have written something here . I recently finished the Lego Marvel game and I must say it was not what I expected. Surely the game wasn t bad, it was fun to play and there are still hundreds of small tasks I could accomplish. There is a lot of content in the game to explore and a lot of tasks to do but still it isn t as good as it I expected it to be. The Graphics What I really like about it is all that is lego, the cars and stuff are super fun to see, all the vehicles and all the stuff you can actually break is incredible. I must say I really didn t enjo ...

Watch Dogs

Last week, after having spent my last weekend s working on eXpansion, I was reminded of Ubisoft s new game Watch Dogs. I had seen that the game had very good review by gaming magazines but the a lot of players had started to compare Ubisoft to EA. That made me think, what is happening if we can t even trust Ubisoft? Even though I don t like all the games they make, and all the decision they take there is one thing that I love about them. What I like is the passion they put in their games. They actually like the games they are making, on presentation videos you really see that, it isn t just a ...

So I just wanted to re write some overkill scenes from books, movies and TV shows the way I have seen them. I will try to order by power . I put the most interesting ones and try to vary the sources, putting all overkills from doctor who wouldn t be so interesting so just what I think are the bests Doctor Who - Tardis explodes For me, the Tardis has always been the ultimate vehicle. I don t like it when in some episodes "she" is described as an old model, and I like it even less when she is in danger because for me it is near impossible to harm her. When on episode 12 of the fifth ...

Assasins Creed III

Introduction As the release date of Assassins IV black flag approaches I decided to replay Assassins Creed III. The main reason for this was the ship missions I wanted to replay. I had a very bad memory of the game as I remember disliking extremely the end of the game. I must say this time hasn t been much different at the end, I still dislike the end but maybe as I expected the end to be bad I enjoyed much more the rest of the game. I must say that the story is good and sound expects the end. Graphics AC3 has probably the best graphics I know of, but well as it is the only blog buster game ...

SO here is a list of my favorite authors Robert Jordan Tolkien Patrick O Brian Luise Cooper Jonathan Stroud Clive Cussler Wilbur Smith Terry GoodKind Raymond E.Feist Trudi Canavan As you can see I have separated the first 5 authors because I don t won t to mix them with the others, they are on a hole other level and the others need to write much better if they won t to catch up. I will explain myself better later on. 3, 4 years ago I wouldn t have put Robert Jordan on the first place with such ea ...
