I have been really disappointed in the way that mainstream news outlets have handled a large amount of the news. I don’t mean to be dismissive. Rather, I am being honest. Some of the media outlets I have had an issue with have been the ones that did not get what they were talking about. As a result, I got a lot of hate mail and I was called a racist and a hater.
Blacksphere is one of the few media outlets that does not simply take the story at face value. They do fact check and fact check and fact check. They also make good points and, as the founder suggests, make things sound like they are facts. But the problem is that many people who receive the information on the site do not agree with the points they make. For example, they say that the government should have been doing something to stop Colt Vahn from killing the Visionaries.
While I don’t think their argument is as absurd as it might appear, I do think it is a bit flawed. In the end, Colt Vahn is still only in his 20’s, and we as a society have yet to figure out why or how he became so obsessed with killing Visionaries. On top of that, the government is not responsible for the Visionaries’ deaths.
The government is responsible. But what’s the government’s role in all of this? Colt Vahn was on Earth to kill Visionaries. If the government did not do anything about it, then maybe people actually believe it’s the government who is responsible. But as of yet, I’ve yet to see any government agency or official acknowledge that Colt Vahn is still alive.
But Colt isn’t the only one who has been trying to kill Visionaries. Our heroes are given a second chance to kill them too, but their first and only attempt fails spectacularly due to lack of self-awareness. So they go back to the island and attempt to kill Visionaries again. This time they have their plan worked out.
The third mission of Deathloop is to kill all the Visionaries all at the same time. But in the end we can’t even get the Visionaries to commit mass murder, because Colt has a secret weapon that he’s only using for his own plans. This weapon is called a “Black Hole”. It’s a small black sphere in each of the Visionaries’ hands. The Visionaries must open the Black Holes and the Sphere will travel through their bodies.
Deathloop has a lot of cool new features. One of them is a new map. The Black Spheres are now scattered throughout the game, and you have to be careful where you go. The first few times I went through the game, I almost didn’t want to go through it again, because it reminded me of playing the original Doom in the 80s.
I have to say that for a game that tries so hard to be something it isn’t, Blacksphere looks pretty good. It feels like a game with a bit of Doom about it. Unfortunately, the visuals can be a bit distracting. This is one of those games that seems to have a lot of promise, but it will be hard to make a big impact of just a few new features.
Like I said, this is one of those games that is really good at making you feel like you have to take the time to play it. But for the most part, the game has you going through the motions. Sure you can do some cool things, but it’s all going in the same direction, and there’s no real sense of achievement.
This is a problem especially for younger gamers. I mean, if you were playing a game like this as a kid, you probably wouldn’t be able to get the most out of it. For me, I wanted to play a game like this because I was bored to tears. I’d sit down and wait for it to load, and I’d just go through the same motions over and over and over. That’s one of the reasons I don’t own and run my own website.
