Bully is a 3rd person player game, made in 2006 that is arguably one of the best games Rockstar has ever made, Bully is essentially a bootleg version of the GTA-series, as there are fewer things do to with guns, instead, there are items such as, slingshots,spud-guns and many more!
Story-line and Gameplay
So the story starts, as your character, Jimmy Hopkins is left at the gates of Bullworth Academy, as you explore the world around you will see that the main characters reveal themselves, you later see that this school is the named by many, as the worst school across America,as you arrive, people, recognize you and one person called Gary Smith "offers" help in this horrid school, he introduces you to the "surrounding environment" as in, the people that are in this school, later you realise there are many cliques of people, ranging from nerds-to-jocks
here are all the groups in the world:
All of these cliques are turned on against you as the same person (Gary Smith) that offers you help in the school betrays you and somehow convinces all of the cliques that they are your enemy one by one!
I like the story of this game and rate the story 9/10.
Now to talk about the gameplay, the gameplay is more like melee combat although there are also other weapons available such as throwable fireworks!. here is a list of weapons you can use:
Interactable Items Around Your Environment
And Of Course Your Fists.
The gameplay can be compared to RPG mechanics as its health-based game. The gameplay is similar to the famous GTA-Series although in this game there is no fatally injuring a person, instead, the person gets knocked out:
as seen in this screenshot, you knock someone out, not fatally injuring them!
There is also extra peripherals such as:
In this game, you can change your attire to fancy your style, by doing side-missions you can unlock vehicles, more powerful weapons and much more!
The game takes about 60-65 hours to complete if you decide to do main-missions only.
I would rate the gameplay 9/10. (as it's satisfying to roam around and abrupt someone with a fist)
Graphics And System Requirements
As I have stated this game was made in 2006, for modern times the graphics are not the most appealing thing to look at, its a great relief that the gameplay and story are outstanding. Although the graphics are not top-notch if you do have a spare copy of GTA-V, then you are in great luck as there is a fix for the graphics, as there is a mod you can install to play Bully on GTA-V.
Although if you are a retro-type of player then you can enjoy the game delightfully with no flaws. here is a picture of the graphics set to High:
as you can see the PC version seems to favour quality so you are in luck if you have the PC version.
As far as the system requirements go, for modern computers, they should run perfectly at 60fps at max with no trouble, here are the specifications of the game at a minimum :
CPU: Intel Pentium 4 (3+ GHZ) / AMD Athlon 3000+
CPU SPEED: 3.0 GHz
RAM: 1 GB
OS: Windows XP / Windows Vista
VIDEO CARD: DirectX 9.0c Shader 3.0 supported (NVIDIA GeForce 6800 or 7300 / ATI Radeon X1300 or better)
I rate the graphics a 5/10 compared to recent modern games.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I overall rate this game an 8/10.
if you would like to watch a clip that you can feel the overall emotions of the game here is a link! :
Counter-Strike!, a fantastic game, that crushed other games throughout the decades, not to mention the epic e-sports scene it created for the gaming community!
CSGO, the newest edition to the counter-strike collection!. At first, this game started at counter-strike 1.6, which is where most pros in CSGO started from, cs 1.6 had the most articulate features of its time (1999)!, the game only started as a mod of half-life, which is another game made by Valve.
After CS: 1.6, Counter-Strike source was released which is looked down upon by most of the cs community as the bad era of counter-strike, as it had the most flawed gameplay, it flawed at these main points
Not as fun as CS: 1.6
Highly unoptimized for those days computers
It did not meet expectations!
Although I have played cs: source for several years and its a great game although it can be boring playing alone!
The next era, of CSGO!, I would highly recommend this game to anyone as there is so much to do, from a variety of skins to the many movements exploits such as
- here's a video of how to bunnyhop and what it looks like!
This game is built on the source engine! and this counter-strike included all the features of cs:1.6 and cs: source
so many people couldn't complain about the game as everyone agreed on this is the type of CS that should be in the community for long!
Recently CSGO has become free to play! so you should certainly get it as its mighty fun to play
Here are some greatly appreciated features of CSGO provided with a description:
Skins were introduced in August 2013, and this gave in a massive new aspect for the game as trading, gifts were also introduced, this gave most people the "need" to play CSGO, there are over 1000 skins in CSGO, as well as skin models for terrorist and counter-terrorist skins!. Although all these good features were added, because of skins there was a sudden increase of scammers when trading items, here's really rare skin that costs over 1,000$! :
Most people appreciate the precision in the game as every bullet is consistent and the game never "breaks"
As I previously mentioned the game has recently become free, now I will split up 2 experiences into 2 parts so here they are!:
The non-prime experience varies as its great that the game is now free, although now that it's free the game is sometimes unpleasant as there is an abundance of hackers in competitive matches, I can personally tell you this can be frustrating( i have about 500 hours in non-prime), although this problem can be fixed, the fix can resolve in two ways!
Getting prime through payments( 20$)
Getting prime through, playing the game (once you reach level 21 you will be rewarded with prime )
The prime experience is excellent because there is a limited amount of hackers as hackers are not inclined to play the game for 1 month till they get to level 21 or pay then get banned, although some do hack, not as blatant as non-prime hackers, the prime experience is great although this is also where you will meet a lot of toxic players, and if you are toxic it's very bad and you should stop if people report you for being toxic, your trust factor another thing we will discuss in further reading your trust factor is low you are likely to get more hackers and toxic people (i have about 1000 hours in prime servers)
Trust Factor(a.k.a TF)
This is implemented in the game so you can meet appropriate people with your own "TF", ie. if you are toxic your "TF" is likely to be low thus you are likely to meet hackers in-game, so remember to always be kind and try not to get frustrated(which I sometimes do get frustrated XD)
