Game Review: Fallout Shelter

My boyfriend taught me to love Bethesda games, even if I've never played some of them. The "Fallout" series is one I've never played but I watched my boyfriend play it a lot. Now I downloaded "Fallout Shelter" for my tablet and I'm playing it.
The story of Fallout is inspired by the "Mad Max" films. The USA were nuclearized and people need safe shelters. The Vault Tech Industries created underground shelters where people can enter for being safe. So "Fallout Shelter" let you build your vault and make it grow up with survivors who look for a place to stay.

All in all the game is really nice. It starts simpler at the beguinning and it becomes hader the most you go on. Building your vault you have also to produce resurces for people like food, energy and water. And you have also to keep alive the survivors who you can equip with armors and weapons they find exploring the wasteland or you received completing quests.

In my opinion, it's te best city builder I've ever played. Its variety of activities from the city management to the exploration mode is its strongest power. It isn't boring, especially when riders or beasts attack the Vault. I like also the wanderful assistant that suggests you the best way for manage your Vault.

Do you know the game? Have you ever played one of the Fallout games? Did you like them? What do you think about Fallout Shelter? Is it enough good for its fathers? Leave comments and let me know something about your Fallout expeprience.

Anime Review: Bakemonogatari

The strangest anime I've ever watched is "Bakemonogatari" by Atsuhiro Iwakami, Mitsutoshi Kubota and Masayuki Haryu. It is one of the series of "Monogatari".
Each episode tells the story of one particular demon or spirit who possessed the life of one human. The protagonist wants to save them all by the possession with good ways, but his new friend teaches him that sometimes there is no good ways for saveing people.
Despite this obscure aspect, it's generally a nice anime, with a lot of fun.

There is a distinctive trait that characterize this special anime. Each episode contains flshes of imagines or writings that aren't completely connected with the story. Sometimes they show you something connected with what the characters are talking about, and sometimes they show something totally different. I liked this, even if it was really strange.

Have you seen it? What do you think about? Leave comments and tell me if you liked it.

Have a nice week!

TV Series Review: Stranger Things

If you are looking for an old science fiction series, "Stranger Things" is what you should watch. It has been created by Matt and Ross Duffer and produced by Campo Hero Production and 21 Laps Entertainment for Netflix. "Stranger Things" was produced in 2016. However it is setted in 80s years with the same tecnology of that period. Very beautiful idea.
The plot run around the disappearance of a child and the following strange events. Those comprehends also the appearance of a female child escaped from a laboratory who has powerful psychokinesis powers.

The boy who desappears and his other three friends are D&D players, so I couldn't miss a TV series like this. The plot is simple, nothing new, but it's really good. There is no axilarant special effects. The thing I liked most was the accuracy with which they portaied the 80s years. I really loved it. I loved also the accuracy the used for the RPG of D&D. In a scene they show a ring notebook that contains a very old version of the player's manual. Beautiful!

Have you seen it? What do you think about?
Feel free to leave your opinions in the comments below.

On October 27th of this year will come the second season. So before watching this, I suggest you to watch the first one.
Have a nice week,

Daily Routine

Hello dears,
how are you?

Today I would share with you my new daily routine I created with my new lifestyle.

Every day I wake up at 6 am and I have breackfast. Then I go walking for at least one hour. I usially take the same path because it is tranquil. It passes through the wood and the fields. Early in the morning often heppens to see small eagles or roe deers or squirrels.
Ssst...there is a roe deer in the field.
After the walk I spend a bit of time on my computer, reading e-mails or, if I have my schedule at work, I go work.
The rest of the day changes based on my job schedules. When I have the evening free I meet with my boyfriend for an ice-cream or for watching something together. In the afternoon, I usually stay home (if I don't work, obviously) chilling out. I like reading everything would drow my attention be it posts or books or mangas, or I like playing computer games or watch something my boyfriend doesn't like.
On Tuesday, my day off, in the evening, I have a fixed appointement with the D&D group.

What are your daily routines? Do you have any favorite place where you like staying most? What do you like to do in your leisure? Don't be shy and feel free to comment.

Anime Review: Ranpo Kitan: Game of Laplace

One of the last animes I divoured in only a few days was "Ranpo Kitan: Game of Laplace" by Seiji Kishi. The anime was inspired by the romances of Ranpo Edogawa, a japanese crime novel's writer.

The series talks about Kobayashi, a student of the middle school who was accused of the murder of his teacher. During this case, he meets Akechi a famous detective who is solving his problem. Kobayashi stayed fascinated from this and finding a sense for his life, asks Akechi to become his assistant.

I really loved this series, sometimes funny but fundamentally serious. The main topic that appears from the second episode is absolutely stunning and real. It didn't made me cry, but it is certainly well made.

I suggest you all to watch it. For italian readers, you can find it easily on vvvvid, my favourite platform for viewing animes.

Have you ever seen it? What do you think about? Tell me in the comments!

Have a nice week,

Game Review: The Elder Scrolls: Legends

Picture took from Google.
"The Elder Scrolls: Legends" is the Skyrim's card game that appeard in the Steam platform.

It's a free-to-play video game with the possibility of buying something directly from the game store. You can play by yourself with the story mode where is included the tutorial. You can play also with friends or with other players.

How does it work? It works like "Hearthstone", another on-line card game. You have your deck, took from the base ones or created by yourself. There are various kind of cards that we can divide into: creatures, spells and cards that influence the field.
Differently from "Hearthstone", in Skyrim the field is splitted in four zones: two for you and two for the opponent. They can be affecded separately by different terrein effects that aren't included in cards effects. Creatures can act only in the zone where they are setted. However, other cards can act in all the zones.

Picture took from Google.
As an on-line game it gives you a daily reward for your log-in which consists in a daily quest that can be solved whenever you want or can be substituted by the next daily quest if you have reached the maximum limit of daily quest (3) yet.

In my opinion, it is a good game. The ones who have played the video game "The Elder Scrolls" should play at least the story mode, it's really nice. It will be certainly improved in future, so...everybody, let's play!

Have a nice weekend!
