LAX – The Game | Songs, Reviews, Credits
After two albums driven by his worship of legendary West Coast producer Dr. Dre plus feuds with fellow rappers like 50 Cent and the G-Unit crew, the Game’s third official effort is his least important release to date and the strongest argument yet that it just might be time to move on. The cuts that truly matter on LAX aren’t the ones where the rapper’s hardcore, unswayable definition of loyalty comes into play but the ones that go outside the usual topics and explore both the profound (the African-American struggle) and, more surprisingly, the profane (rump shaking). Most rappers are allowed only one shoutout track every couple albums, but here the name-dropping initial single “Game’s Pain” is only the tip of the iceberg. Common and Lil Wayne not only guest star, but get mentioned repeatedly on an album that replaces the heavy shadow of Dre by dropping names from all over the place (Kanye West, Erick Sermon, Rakim, LL Cool J, Luther Campbell, Kurt Cobain, just to name a few). It’s nowhere near as compelling as his previous Dre obsession, and with the Game having avoided the sophomore slump while becoming commonly accepted as in it for the long haul, the “everyone is out to get me” lines all seem like leftovers. In this ponderous for ponderousness’ sake atmosphere, the mention of Chili Cheese Fritos in “House of Pain” brings sweet relief, and when the rapper refers to his woman as “beautiful as an Eli Manning pass,” it’s just one of the reasons the feel-good “Touchdown” is a highlight. Excuse the vocoder and Lil Wayne’s appearance on “My Life” is big time, but the bar is raised high on the closing “Letter to the King.” Exploring how the legacy of Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King affected his own life, the Game pulls out the “ghetto grammar” on the track and offers both moving words of reverence and unapologetic controversy (“I wonder why Jesse Jackson ain’t catch ’em before his body drop/Would he give me that answer, probably not”). Add the “Jam on It” sample producer Nottz lays on “Ya Heard,” the sultry backing track Scott Storch designed for “Let Us Live,” and a superstar guest list that’s a mile long, and this scattershot album is easy to recommend despite its flaws.
The Game: LAX | PopMatters
Since the start of his career, basically one narrative has followed The Game: He’s an artist whose success is completely unrelated to his talents as a rapper.
After his arranged marriage with G-Unit eventually fell out, Game was, either fairly or unfairly, charged with the task of repeating his historic success without the aid of 50 Cent, the man whose (then) infallible pop ear was basically the only reason anyone even cared about him in the first place. Though it didn’t really flop in the traditional sense, Game’s last album, Doctor’s Advocate, has yet to sell half as many copies as his breakthrough debut The Documentary, and it placed exactly zero singles — even the Kanye West feature with the expensive video — in the top 40.
Somewhere along the line, in between his fabricated role as heir to the G-Unit throne and his reemergence as the West Coast’s vengeful Moses, Game basically lost his mind. His exile from G-Unit lead to him becoming scarily obsessed with his old crew, harping on the same disses and beefs on diss tracks and freestyles that sometimes lasted over ten minutes.
His demons though, as would be revealed on Doctor’s Advocate, ran way deeper than anyone really anticipated. The album’s most stunning track, “Doctor’s Advocate”, had Game portraying himself as a wrecked alcoholic before rapping what amounted to a breakup note to his mentor and muse Dr. Dre, which included the almost heartbreaking revelation, “Sitting here looking at my platinum plaques / Thinking, ‘What the fuck am I without a Dr. Dre track?’” The rest of
Though the album had as many hits as misses, Game’s persona as a bitter, depressed, lonely and alcoholic rapper who is willing to rap about being all those things made for compelling listening, especially coming from someone who started out with G-Unit, arguably the most soulless and robotic group of rappers currently working. If Doctor’s Advocate had a major fault, though, it was that its chosen aesthetic as a blatant West Coast homage blunted the complex persona that Game had fallen into. When coupled with the rear view mirror-nature of his lyrics, the beats made
On LAX, Game hasn’t changed, but he’s picked a group of beats that get him closer to extricating himself from both his West Coast Messiah complex and the post-G-Unit narrative. And while Game has yet to carve out his own identity as a rap artist, LAX shows that, on his third album, he might be on the right track.
The album starts off on a familiar tip: with the underdog Game (“Paul Pierce to you LeBron niggas”) as Cali rap’s last hope. But where the same type songs on Doctor’s Advocate turned him out as a sort of childish mascot, the first quarter of
On “State of Emergency”, over a rippling N.W.A. bite by J.R. Rotem, Game tries storytelling on for size, and it results in one of the better homages he’s ever done. He even brings Ice Cube in for the chorus (“California ain’t a state it’s an army”) in an obvious baton passing moment, and while it’s not as convincing as Game probably thinks it is, the shoe fits better on “State of Emergency” than it maybe ever has.
From there, things stay solid and consistent, whether Game is sparring with Raekwon (“Bulletproof Diaries”), handing off to Ludacris (“Ya Heard”, featuring the album’s best punchlines) or going in alone, as he does on the menacing “Money” and “House of Pain”, a DJ Toomp production that splits the difference between early ’90s West Coast beats and
As the album progresses it starts to lose momentum, though even its softy middle of prerequisite loverman songs isn’t as cringeworthy as you’d expect. On “Angel” he clumsily follows a Common verse by riffing on “Used to Love H.E.R”, and “Never Can Say Goodbye”, although Game pulls off the rapper role-play well, is almost comically maudlin. “Game’s Pain”, on the other hand, is one of his best nostalgia trips, but “Letter to the King”, which should be an earnest and endearing tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, is marred by some of Game’s worst raps (“I feel the pain of Nelson Mandela / cuz when it rains it pours / I need Rihanna’s umbrella”).
All told, if LAX is the most important album Game has ever released — the one where he has to prove that he can sustain an artistic career beyond 50 Cent and beyond exacting revenge upon 50 Cent -— then he has proved to be more up to the task than probably anyone thought he would be. And though LAX has its debilitating faults, it certainly stands up with any rap full-length released this year, which for this point in Game’s career, might even make it a miracle.
The Game – LAX ReviewWhen 50 Cent dropped The Game from the G-Unit roster a few years back a majority of the hip-hop community assumed he would be bagging groceries in no time. After all, 50 (allegedly) was responsible for all of Game’s hits and without Curtis and his muscles singing the hooks things looked grim for the West Coast rapper. Surprisingly Jayceon Taylor has maintained—if not elevated—his popularity while 50 is losing relevance by the minute. So now a full album and a couple of years removed from his G-Unit beef, how will Game perform on what he claims will be his last album? Answer: not bad at all.
LAX is loaded with guest appearances but the most shocking has to be the spoken word prayer intro and outro delivered by former rapper, current inmate, DMX. As odd as his appearance is it sets a tone for what turns out to be a much deeper album than any of Game’s previous efforts. The ferocious “State Of Emergency” warns of the dangers of inner city Los Angeles over a double time snare back drop with a wonderfully executed hook by Ice Cube.
The Game continues to pay homage to legends with the Raekwon collab “Bulletproof Diaries” where The Chef steals the show with one of his classic undecipherable verses.
Game has grown conceptually since his last album and it is evident with the introspective “My Life” featuring Lil’ Wayne, as well as the powerful “Letter to the King” featuring Nas. On the former Game spits: “…listening to The Chronic album, playing backwards/ shooting at pictures of Don Imus for target practice/…” Probably the best song on the album comes in the form of “Never Can Say Goodbye” where Jayceon spits three verses from the perspective of deceased rappers Tupac, Notorious B.I.G. and Easy-E. In each verse he partially adapts their voice and delivery to the point where it’s recognizable but not seen as imitating or mocking, rather a fitting homage to fallen icons.
If the album followed this formula a bit more it could easily be up for “best of the year” consideration, but Game loses focus at times and drops a few duds. The videogame-sounding “Ya Heard” featuring Ludacris seems out of place as Luda overdoses on similes and metaphors. Meanwhile, “Gentleman’s Affair” with Ne-Yo is very much skippable. Furthermore Game continues to name drop every celebrity known to man which makes the album sound more like an awards show presenters list than a slice of inner city hardcore.
All in all The Game shows vast growth on his latest effort and reinforces his ability to make mainstream friendly songs without the commercial appeal of 50 Cent behind him. The positive easily outweighs the negative on this disc and what should be even more encouraging for Game fans is the fact that he didn’t have to compromise his sound to get favorable results as he did on his first album. With such an upside it’s a shame that he has decided to call it quits, but as much as he flip-flops on positions I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s another name-dropping extravaganza in the very near future.
1. “Letter to the King” f/ Nas
2. “State of Emergency” f/ Ice Cube
3. “Cali Sunshine” f/ Bilal
4. “Never Say Goodbye” f/ LaToya Williams
The Game Has Talented Friends, But He Still Blows
The Game’s ego is his biggest downfall. Sure, he’s got the cash to enlist a top-shelf dream team of producers– Kanye West, DJ Hi-Tek and Scott Storch among them; He’s always been beat-focused, so a hefty range of big beats is mando. But this time all the cameos and producers in the world won’t save a weak rhyme. LAX simply serves as further evidence that Mr. Jayceon Taylor can’t carry a record on his own. The guy simply refuses to evolve beyond lyrical self-fellation and delusions of thug grandeur.
Don’t get me wrong- LAX has its moments in the sun. How could it not? I can’t remember a more star-studded hip-hop album. Kanye turns a production page in his portfolio with Angel, stepping outside the glow-in-the-dark theatrics and laying the groundwork for one of the best tracks on the album, while Raekwon puts things back in motion with one of his best verses in years on Bulletproof Diaries. The Game actually holds his own on this one, too. Best album track? Well, it aint an embarrassment- that’s a start, right?
But let’s step back to track one, when it’s clear that we’re in trouble right out of the gate. The first voice we hear on
LAX Files is a play-by-play of Taylor’s past leading up to now, as he paints a picture of his tough upbringing: Come to my ‘hood-‘hood / look at my block-block / that’s that project building, yeah that’s where I got shot-shot / cause I was more ‘hood than Suge / and had more rocks than Jay / more scars on my face than the original Scarface / or the homeboy Scarface.
Ice Cube drops the chorus on the snappy State Of Emergency, but let’s not get too crazy about calling this a passing of the West-Coast torch; in terms of popularity and geographical face tattoos, The Game is in his prime, sure, but where’s the substance? Where’s the tracks we’re going to remember in five years? Cause I don’t see any.
Nevertheless, the Ludacris cameo on the impressive Ya Heard is great, and re-sparked my interest in the MC. Despite rhyming about his gun having abortions, Luda shines brighter than anything Jayceon spits on the entire record. Side by side, he just puts the Game to shame.
Money‘s a standard vapid club track, a Betty Wright voice sample endlessly repeating the title while Taylor once again talks all kinds of shit and bites the hands that feed. He takes aim at his former boss with I was through flippin’ quarters when I made my first meal / I’m about a dollar, 50 Cent ain’t real. Real enough to give you a career and get your to cover up that stupid butterfly tattoo on your face, big guy. But hey, it’s your party. I just wouldn’t call it a coincidence that Dre didn’t show up.
Former Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker provides live percussion for Dope Boys, a whoopdefuckindoo detail if live drums didn’t sound so damn good on a hip-hop jam. Then again, the chorus is fucking retarded, so we’re back to square one.
Am I the only one on earth who wants to scream every time I hear synthesized vocals? My Life had some potential without Lil’ Wayne’s talents being completely wasted on the robotic hook.
Game sure as hell knows how to pick a beat. The overall tone of the album is his usual shade of menacing self-absorption. His tactic has always been to rely on ferocity rather than actually move his lyrical ability beyond the most laughably stupid, so it’s clear from the start that the beats need to put in some overtime. A certain Mr. Curtis Jackson can undoubtedly relate.
Ultimately, despite the knob-twisting superstar lineup, LAX isn’t as well-produced as The Documentary and doesn’t pack nearly the punch that The Doctor’s Advocate does. It’s not a bad album- it simply proves that Game is an extremely inconsistent artist who needs to get the fuck over whatever daddy issues he’s got and drop the scowl. It’s an old pigeonhole schtick that most of us have outgrown. He should take a few cues from the hip-hop rolodex on his album and focus on the art instead of the thuggery. More than a decade after the east coast / west coast battles hit their climax, people are still cashing in on useless conflict. Ridiculous.
Jesus, DMX preaching again in the outro. Can you hire this guy to work funerals? If I die anytime soon, somebody pay this guy to give my eulogy.

Album review: ‘L.A.X.,’ by The Game – News – The Bulletin
Is it a bad omen when your album opens with a prayer by… DMX? Well, it should be. And yet, throughout the course of “L.A.X.,” a smorgasbord of top-shelf producers – Kanye West, Cool & Dre, DJ Hi-Tek and Scott Storch among them – provides The Game with a wide range of beats that have a lot of moves you just don’t see on the average mainsteam rap record
Is it a bad omen when your album opens with a prayer by… DMX?
Well, it should be. And yet, throughout the course of “L.A.X.,” The Game’s gruff bark punctuates an unexpected variety of sounds that, even when they’re a little too slow, keep things rolling on an even and interesting keel.
After DMX rebukes Satan in the name of Jesus (not a joke) “LAX Files” opens the disc with Game flexing hard on the corner over a forlorn piano, skittery hi-hats and a rat-a-tat beat. Ice Cube drops the chorus on the neck-snapping “State of Emergency,” and it’s almost like a passing of the West-Coast torch: where Cube’s new disc, “Raw Footage,” is the work of a movie star reminiscing on his youthful gangsta indiscretions, The Game is still in his prime, and he tears into many of “L.A.X.’s” tracks with the zeal of a young Oshea Jackson Jr.
Unlike Cube’s new record, however, a smorgasbord of top-shelf producers – Kanye West, Cool & Dre, DJ Hi-Tek and Scott Storch among them – provides The Game with a wide range of beats that have a lot of moves you just don’t see on the average mainsteam rap record: a plucky guitar and the sweet croon of R&B singer Bilal drive the bouncy “Cali Sunshine,” a skittery beat that could be a J. Dilla b-side and a Ludacris cameo propel “Ya Heard” and former Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker provides live percussion for “Dope Boys.”
There are several obligatory R&B club jams, with Keyshia Cola, Ne-Yo and Raheem DeVaughn, and the first five tracks start things off a little too slow before kicking into high gear, but unlike fellow chart-topper 50 Cent (who recently released the decent-but-forgettable “Terminate on Sight”), The Game seems to put a little more time and effort into picking his beats and making his rhymes.

In 2019, any fresh game is available even on the weakest hardware. No, this is not a miracle, although it seemed so before. It’s all to blame for cloud gaming and services, which allow you to fully play even without a top-end PC or console. We have collected in one place the best such solutions and talked about their features, prices and nuances.
Launched in 2014, PlayStation Now is one of the oldest and most popular cloud gaming services in the world.With PlayStation Now, gamers play in the “cloud” not only on the consoles of the Sony Playstation family (PS3, PS4, PS Vita), but even on a PC. In the latter case, you need Windows 8.1 or “ten”, Intel Core i3 or AMD A10 and above, as well as at least 2 GB of RAM. It is better to play on a branded Dualshock 4.
The service database contains more than eight hundred games, and for comfortable gaming, an Internet speed of at least 20 Mbps is required. Monthly subscription costs $ 9.99. If you take three months or six months at once, it will be cheaper.
Launched by Nvidia in 2016, Geforce Now has also become one of the most popular cloud gaming services in the world. Initially sharpened for the Nvidia Shield, it later became available for PC players – both for Windows and macOS. At the same time, Geforce Now works in beta version and you can try it only after an approved application. But it’s free.
Geforce Now lets you play games from your catalog on Steam, Uplay, or Battle.net. The broadcast quality is one – Full HD at 60 frames per second.The minimum required internet speed is 10 Mbps. But in this case, there will definitely be lags, so count on at least 20-30 Mbps.
Vortex game service allows you to play not only through a computer, but also in the Google Chrome browser, as well as through a smart TV, smartphone (Android and iOS) or laptop.
There are 173 games in the local directory, and the required connection speed is at least 20 Mbps. Monthly subscriptions start at $ 9.99. For this money, they are allowed to play only 92 games from the catalog and 20 hours for 30 days.If you want more, take a higher price. All are available in HD quality, but soon they promise to add Full HD.
Playkey is a popular and old gaming cloud service launched in 2014. There are more than 250 titles in the catalog, there is also support for launching your own games from the Steam, Origin and Epic Store platforms through the Playkey server.
In Playkey, they stress that you can play even at a speed of 10 Mbps. True, in this case there will be 30 FPS and HD-resolution.Full HD at 60 frames per second requires a minimum of 20 Mbps.
Rates are different and depend on the number of hours per month: on average, an hour costs $ 1, but the more there are, the better the discount they offer. When registering, they give a couple of hours for free.
Another popular foreign cloud service with a large base of games and full-fledged 4K gaming at 60 frames per second. You can run them from a PC (Windows and macOS), laptop, tablet or smartphone (Android and iOS).
For comfortable gaming, at least 15 Mbps is required, but this, of course, is not for 4K. To play with the best picture and resolution, you need between 30 and 100 Mbps.
Google Stadia is the freshest cross-platform cloud gaming service on our list. To join the new Google product, you will have to buy a special gamepad and media player for $ 129. The set includes a three-month subscription, separately it costs $ 10.
At the start, there are 22 games in the service (Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Metro Exodus, Mortal Kombat 11, RAGE 2).But most of them can only be launched with an active subscription, even if the user bought the game separately.
Google promised 4K gaming at 60 fps, but after the release, users often complain about graphical drawdowns and severe latency in control, which makes it difficult to play Google Stadia without nerves.
Experts and journalists call Google Stadia the gaming platform of the future, but now the project has many technical problems that need to be fixed. So far, the service is available in a limited number of countries, so let’s hope that before the release in Ukraine, the creators will find a solution and remove the lags.
The phone freezes, responds slowly to commands, or the joystick does not work during a game
1. Connect to a network with a more stable signalIf the network signal is weak or the network speed is slow, delays may occur during gameplay, the screen may freeze and the phone may disconnect from the network. It is recommended to connect to a stable Wi-Fi or mobile network and try again.
- If you are using a mobile data network such as 4G, your connection may be interrupted by SMS, MMS or incoming calls.As a result, network latency may occur or the phone may disconnect from the network. It is recommended to connect to a Wi-Fi network before starting the game.
- To check the network speed in real time, follow these steps. Open Settings, find and open the Show network speed section and enable this function. Now you can monitor changes in network speed in real time. It will be displayed on the status bar.
2.Close background applications
If several applications are running at the same time, the phone may freeze due to the load of the RAM. It is recommended that you close applications running in the background before launching games.
- Go to the recent tasks screen and do the following.
If you don’t want to accidentally close the application, you can click on the lock icon or swipe down on the corresponding application card to pin the application.
- If you are using virtual navigation buttons, click on the icon in the bottom navigation bar and then click on the icon to close all background applications.
- If you are using navigation gestures, swipe and hold up from the bottom of the screen to open the list of background applications. Click on the icon to close all background applications.
- If you are using a physical navigation button, swipe left or right to open the recently used apps screen.Click on the icon to close all background applications.
- If you are using the Navigation Dock feature, press and hold the floating bar, swipe left or right to open the list of background apps, and then tap the icon to close all of them.
- Go to Phone Manager> Battery> Launch apps and prevent some apps from running in the background.
- Open Phone Manager and tap OPTIMIZE to optimize your phone performance.
3. Delete cacheIt is recommended to leave at least 20% free space in the internal memory of the phone. Your phone’s system performance degrades significantly when the available storage space drops below 10%.
- For detailed information about your phone’s storage, open Settings and search for Storage.If there is not enough free memory, open Phone manager and select Clean up memory to remove unnecessary files or applications.
- You can also restart your phone to clear cache and prevent games from freezing. This must be done if you have not rebooted your phone for a long time.
- If, after completing the above steps, you still have insufficient memory, we recommend that you transfer large and unused files to your computer or other storage device.
4. Add the game to the Game Center

On March 26, It Takes Two, a new co-op game by Jozef Fares, creator of A Way Out and Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, was released.The developer, in a typical manner for himself, loudly announced from the announcement that the new title would be an incredible experience for all participants, and even promised to personally pay a thousand dollars to the dissatisfied. Whether the eminent developer managed to fulfill his promise and keep the bar set by the previous games, we will discuss in the material.
Lampochko: It Takes Two is a purely cooperative game, and you simply can’t go through it alone. This happens because of the plot: a married couple, Mei and Cody, are on the verge of divorce.Their daughter Rose has a hard time going through the constant abuse of her parents and dreams that one day everything will be the same. Having found the “Book of Love” by a certain doctor Hakim, the girl makes a wish to make her parents feel good again, and accidentally transplants the souls of Cody and May into toys: a man gets into a clay figurine, and a woman – into a wooden doll. Reviving and speaking with a strong Spanish accent, the book says that the heroes can return only after going through a therapeutic journey in which they will have to act together, despite all their hostility to each other.Meet the main characters: Dr. Hakim, May and Cody
Machinae: The story does not shine with novelty: the once happy married couple after the birth of their first child was drawn into a merciless whirlpool of “everyday life”. Now May practically lives at work, working overtime to provide for his family, and the creative unit of this union, Cody has lost his passion for life, abandoned his favorite hobbies and dejectedly rolls forward on the rails of gray everyday life.
This rearrangement of traditional gender roles in the protagonist family came as a surprise to me as well. Initially, I was going to play for May: after all, of the two of us, it was I who previously wrote about the “agenda”, but my colleague managed to take it first – and he made the right decision, the heroine suited him much better. It turned out that it was the girl in this pair that acts as the classic voice of reason: she talks about the technical nature of things, tries to remain calm and look for logic even in the most insane circumstances.
I got a pretty close to me in spirit Cody – such a textbook humanist-romantic who is not able to fix a vacuum cleaner, but knows everything about magic, because in the evenings he reads fairy tales with his daughter. Cody easily accepts the rules of the game and is truly fond of this adventure, often forgetting about the dangers that await the heroes. And although in the world of dolls these differences allow spouses to complement each other and overcome difficulties together, it is not difficult to guess where their differences came from in real life.One of the many gadgets that Cody and May will have to use during the game
Lampochko: Gameplay, their dislike, however, is not felt: the characters joyfully and jokingly interact with each other, solving new emerging problems. What Fares really didn’t lie about was his approach to diversity: the gameplay changes on average every 15 minutes, throwing new mechanics at the players.Platforming is always the basis: in most situations, heroes can run, jump and dodge, slightly accelerating in the right direction.
On top of this, other mechanics are layered with enviable regularity, and each time the characters do not overlap: for example, at one of the levels, Cody will receive a cannon that shoots with a viscous resin, which makes things heavier and burns well, and Mei – a device that shoots matches. which can both ignite the resin and push light objects.Both the puzzles and the combat system of this episode are based on interaction: in order to defeat opponents, you first have to cover them with tar, and then set them on fire.
In certain situations, however, the skills will be common: for example, both heroes during the journey will receive ropes that allow them to be attracted to certain points, and later will be able to fly on the same mechanical birds.You can always take a break from adventure with the help of Rose’s favorite toys
Machinae: I’ve completed the game twice already and both times in the starting locations experienced the same feeling of strange awkwardness.In them, the characters do not yet differ in a set of abilities, and therefore one of them is forced to play the role of a kind of “support” – to press buttons and redirect pipes, while the second merrily flies through them and jumps along the walls. The problem here is that when playing cooperative action, of course, you forget about your competitive habits and strive to equally share the “pleasure” with your teammate. To its credit, It Takes Two, just 15 minutes after the start, she endows May and Cody with completely different gadgets that naturally share your responsibilities as you progress.
This is really great: all levels are balanced in the sense that none of the players will feel like a useless member of the support group. Do not hesitate – even if at one moment May got all the exciting platforming, it means that very soon Cody will receive his moment of fame. Opportunities to spoil each other’s life are also enough, which greatly brightens up the passage – once I accidentally hammered my partner into the ground with a hammer. Needless to say, after that, the other possibilities of the game faded in my eyes for a long time?
Lampochko: The variety of mechanics is the main feature of the game.Constant changes lead to the fact that she simply does not have time to get bored: you just played a semblance of a shooter, and then you run around the level with changing gravity or even fight in a strange isometric adventure in the manner of an action RPG. The situation has a downside – often you don’t have time to really feel the mechanics: as soon as you get used to something new, the game already slips something else.Tricks traditional for Fares games with unusual camera angles have not disappeared, but they have become less common
Machinae: Such a kaleidoscope of mechanics and levels (Cody and May will visit completely phantasmagoric locations, which sometimes will be rather distantly related to the real world), as well as the genre of It Takes Two itself, unexpectedly give a pleasant flashback to childhood.Then, not yet spoiled by dozens and hundreds of different games, I enthusiastically spent time in Crash Bandicoot and Spyro, sincerely rejoicing at each new location. Now I can force that changing textures does not necessarily lead to gameplay variety. At the same time, the transitions from the fantasy castle to the desert oasis, and from there to the underwater kingdom fascinated me.
Some echoes of this feeling in the soul awakens and It Takes Two. Comparison with a toy store seems very hackneyed, but this is what fits best here: as in childhood, you run between the shelves, grab everything, and then, not having time to really play enough, switch to something completely new.At the same time, the developers skillfully juggle not only mechanics, but also the presentation, the mood, so that the output really turns out to be a diverse adventure – deliberately ridiculous action scenes are replaced by very cozy dialogues about family life, which until recently seemed so happy.
Lampochko: Due to the variety of mechanics offered, you want to play the game twice: Cody and May are very different in the skills they use and give completely different experience. For example, at one of the levels, Cody is able to transform into various plants, each of which gives a new experience (a cactus becomes a mini-turret, soft grass drowns out May’s steps in the stealth section, and a potato can break the hard bark of harmful plants), but May at this time she is armed with a weed sickle and a miniature long-range watering can.On another level, the heroes get the ability to control time: Mei is able to create her own static clones, and Cody is literally rewinding time. Each device received usually has more than one use, which makes the game even more interesting.The picture in the game is also nice – at least if you like the “cartoon” style
As a bonus for those who lack a touch of competition, there is a collection of mini-games scattered across levels in which Cody and May can briefly become rivals.The mechanics never cease to amaze here: rhythm games are replaced by full-fledged chess, and snail races are replaced by shooting at a shooting range. How competitive games fit in with the story of reaching rapport is another matter.
Machinae: If you decompose the game into individual elements, it becomes clear how simple it is in essence. Most often, this is a standard platformer, in which some two simple mechanics (one for each of the heroes) form the basis of each new level.The minigames mentioned by my colleague above are the only additional fun in It Takes Two, there are not even collectibles and notes here!
And yet, due to the very fast pace of the change of scenery, for some reason it works: the world does not at all seem like an artificial obstacle course, created in order to stretch the game. On the contrary, it is interesting to study it, even knowing that interactive elements are rare in it. And therefore, when at last around the corner there is not a dead end, but a hidden mini-game, it causes the most sincere joy: “Hurray, now I will destroy this Lampochko!”But outside of these games, we collaborated very friendly.
Lampochko: The main drawback of the game can be considered a somewhat strange elaboration of the story. The central storyline is quite clear and logical: a falling apart marriage is saved by traditional advice and unconventional methods. Dr. Hakim, a magic book that speaks exclusively to the accompaniment of a Mexican guitar, invites the heroes to follow three simple tips: devote enough time to each other, find lost passion (and not in relationships, but outside) and again remember what attracted them to each other.The three tips are divided into four major chapters (you have to look for passion twice – for each of the heroes), which … for some reason, begin in the second half of the game.
In the first part, May and Cody will try to disenchant on their own, demonstrating their complete inconsistency in this matter. Realizing that the tears of their daughter transferred them to the bodies of the toys, the divorcing parents come to the only correct decision – they can also be bewitched by the tears of the girl. It’s only after doing the monstrous thing that I got from the flashbacks from Spec Ops: The Line (“Do you still feel like a hero?”) That they finally begin therapy.
Machinae: For the latter, by the way, there are questions. The concept of a therapeutic adventure in itself, in which the characters re-learn how to get along with each other, is quite good – I can accept that this is a working scheme that can return an extinguished spark to the marriage of the main characters. However, as Dr. Hakim reasonably writes in his book, a relationship is a laborious process in which both partners must be involved. Cody and May, in principle, work together to get out of the bodies of the dolls, and the very process of their inner reconciliation seems to remain behind the scenes.But there are no “behind the scenes” scenes in It Takes Two, and therefore it is quite difficult to believe in the story of the miraculous salvation of marriage, especially considering that the book-therapist in the game demonstratively gives the most clichéd advice: “You focused so much on the closed door that do not notice that somewhere else has opened. ” This, by the way, is almost a direct quote.Sometimes the game stops even trying to maintain a stylistic connection with the real world.
Lampochko: The gameplay often does not fit well with the plot: in the cutscenes, the heroes can swear, but at the beginning of the game segment they will immediately interact with joy, jointly solving riddles.The video can show the sadness on the faces of the characters – and the next minute they will go jumping on resilient mushrooms that work as springboards with a cheerful laugh. It is better to keep silent about the fact that individual situations are shown as important, but are completely forgotten by all characters.
No less strange is the fact that during their journey the heroes hardly remember about their daughter, who only does that for a couple of moments pops up in short video inserts. Here, however, lies a plus: for once, the story of the restoration of a crumbling marriage is not conducted through the prism “for the sake of the children” – rather harmful in its essence.It is Cody and May who are rebuilding the relationship by solving internal problems and arranging a therapeutic journey for themselves, even if not voluntarily.
What you can’t take away from the game is a good therapeutic metaphor. If at the beginning of the journey the heroes only do that they break everything that comes to hand, then in the second half they are more and more repairing and fixing previously broken things. Characters begin to mend broken relationships only thanks to the advice of the book, and in the second half this is literally seen in specific examples, which, however, will be a spoiler to talk about.Having brought their daughter to tears at the beginning of the game, later Cody and May take the right path and correct the situation with available means, along the way, as expected, saving the marriage – this is not a spoiler, since no one expected another outcome.The bumblebee talks to the heroes, however, for example, the ants remain silent and do not show themselves in a new way
Surprisingly, this expectation of a specific outcome works in such a way that you don’t feel any emotions from reaching the final.This applies to the whole story in general: in the plot plan, It Takes Two simply has nothing to offer, since it focuses on the gameplay. But even with him it turns out strange: in ten hours, players have time to try dozens of different mechanics, half of which immediately disappear from their heads. As a result, the feeling remains, similar to receiving a box with probes: I seem to have felt a lot of things, but I could not fully feel it.
It Takes Two called It Takes Two the best co-op experience in years, and it’s hard to argue with that.The reason for the “best”, however, is not at all that this is an ideal game – it simply has no major competitors. And to be proud of a victory in the absence of opponents is not an achievement.
Machinae: From the experience of playing A Way Out, until the last moment I believed that at the end there would be a certain twist that would turn the game upside down and turn It Takes Two from a fun attraction for couples passing into a complex story game with deep message. But my expectations were in vain. In fact, we were waiting for a kind of collection of mini-games, which, if not for the declared “adult” topic of difficulties in marriage, could be easily advised for passing, for example, in a cooperative with children.The design of the locations sometimes really pleases – it looks like even Fares himself, who at such moments refuses the split-screen
The plot component seems to neutralize this quality: hardly anyone wants to let the child into the terrible secret that family life is hard work. But for an adult, the thoughtful passage of It Takes Two, on the contrary, turns out to be too superficial: the family history of Cody and May is not a touching drama that you want to follow, blotting your eyes with a handkerchief.This is a completely stereotyped story through which thousands of thousands of couples pass (from the point of view of relationships, not the puppet world, of course), and you will not find any revelations in the fight against the all-consuming routine in it. Take time for your partner, do not forget about your hobbies – exactly the same advice on saving your marriage will be written to you by another “superintelligence” from “Mail.ru Answers” in a minute.
At the same time, It Takes Two remains an excellent, if not a reference, attraction for a couple of evenings for all fans of cooperative games.For ten hours that the game lasts, I was not at all tired of it and immediately went to the second round, having already taken control of May – and the first levels have already played with completely new colors.

- weak plot;
- one of the scenes injured Lampochko;
- in places humor still hurts.
Two heads are better than
It Takes Two will have nothing to surprise you in the plot, but if you miss good-quality “gameplay” games in which jumping on platforms and simple fights with enemies are not a means, but the goal itself, then the new creation of Jozef Fares can easily give you completely childish, but from that only a more sincere sense of the holiday.And your partner too!90,000 Resident Evil, a series of games – all Resident Evil games in order, a list of the best and new ones – Igromania

The best offline Android games do not require an internet connection. They are ideal for long commutes and when you are away from home.
Here’s our pick of the best offline Android games across all major genres.
At first glance, this looks like another endless runner. But play Alto Odyssey a little, and you will realize that there is something about it that makes it interesting.
Perhaps it’s graphics and music.
You will relax, going down the sand dunes, jumping, collecting points, avoiding obstacles.
Alto’s Odyssey does not bring anything new to the world of runners, but it is very interesting nonetheless.
2.Really Bad Chess
Forget the classic version of chess you’re used to. When you’re offline, launch Really Bad Chess and force yourself to think differently.
In this game, although the chessboard remains standard, the pieces are completely random. You can start with three queens and one pawn, while the computer can have six rooks. It forces you to give up everything you know about chess and think outside the box.
As you increase your rating, the AI level stays the same, but it gets the best pieces to start with. This may be my favorite non-chess chess game.
3.Puzzle: Labyrinths & More
In dark mode, you can see the maze at the beginning. But then everything goes dark, except for a small spotlight shining on you, and you have to fight your way to the exit.
Try other modes like ice floor where you end up rolling forward or trap mode.
If you want a simple old maze game, there is always a classic mode. Each mode has many levels to keep you entertained until the internet hides.
4. Tower: Once Upon A Tower
Once Upon A Tower turns many game elements upside down. Instead of the prince rescuing the princess from the tower, the prince is dead and the princess waves a sledgehammer to escape the dragon. And instead of climbing the tower, she digs a tunnel.
Along the way, she will have to fight monsters of all kinds, from ogres to spiders that can climb walls. There are traps that come out of nowhere. She needs to act quickly, otherwise the dragon will destroy everything with its fiery breath. Don’t forget about another enemy: gravity.
Collect coins and bonuses whenever you can; You will need them to complete the levels and leave the tower. Once Upon a Tower is a lot of fun and seemingly endless.
5. Arcade: Jungle Marble Blast
Unfortunately, the classic Zuma doesn’t work without an internet connection, but some of its many imitations do. Among them, I liked Jungle Marble Blast the most.
The graphics aren’t quite as smooth, but that’s not a significant complaint. The gameplay is as fun as ever. Click anywhere on the screen to shoot; click on the beetle to swap the colored spheres you have.
Shoot the orbs in a chain around the map to create sequences of three or more.
Jungle Marble Blast fits into the group of the best offline games for Android. It’s small, long, and free.
Quizoid is a challenge to yourself, not someone else.
Like other similar apps, Quizoid asks a multiple answer question and you must choose the correct one.
But since you are against the AI, there are a few more game modes. For example, you can play 20 questions with the computer or play a specific round to answer as many questions as you can.
Quizoid boasts over 7000 trivia questions across 17 categories such as entertainment, sports, science, politics, history and more. Unfortunately, tests by category are only available in a paid package.
7.Arcade – Tank Hero: Laser Wars
Tank Hero: Laser Wars doesn’t show up in regular “offline games” collections, but I’m wondering why it’s not that popular.
You play as the titular Tank Hero, destroying all other tanks with your laser cannon.At each level, you must destroy all other tanks on the map.
The down arrow lets you control the tank with a virtual joystick, and you can tap anywhere on the screen to shoot.
Of course, not everything is so simple. As you progress, you will find different types of tanks, bonuses and monstrous labyrinths that complicate your task. But remember, lasers bounce off walls, so use this to your advantage.
8.Puzzle: Sudoku (from Fassor)
The Play Store is filled to the brim with Sudoku games, and many of them also work offline. Fassor’s Sudoku is not objectively superior to them, but I like it the most and works great.
This Sudoku makes the basics right, whatever you want from time to time. There are four skill levels and a timer to check how quickly you can complete each type. One of Fassor’s main points is that you can write some rough numbers in a cell, but keep in mind this carries a 30 second penalty.
You can check if you decided everything correctly at any time, but again, there is a penalty for that. Those time penalties add up, ruining your overall score. And when you connect to the Internet, your friends will see it.
9.Shooter: Smash Hit
Smash Hit was one of the most addictive games of 2014 and is still considered a guaranteed good time. It’s a bit strange to call it a shooter, but in essence it is.
You play in the first person and you need to throw steel balls at glass objects to break them into pieces.Creating a chain of successful hits and removing all points gives you bonuses such as increasing the number of steel balls that you fire at the same time.
All the while, you are slowly progressing through the levels, and as you progress, the pace picks up momentum. Make sure you are not hit by any glass object and you will win the game immediately. But this is not as easy as it seems.
10.Racing: Traffic Rider
Get on your bike in Traffic Rider and dodge the city traffic in a frantic first-person dash to the finish line.
Traffic Rider plays like an endless racer where you have to go faster and faster to get to the finish line without crashing. But the mission mode actually makes it a little more fun than other endless racers, as you can race with specific goals rather than just mindlessly increasing the distance.
You can even choose other modes such as the test of time or simple endless runner. Just make sure you beat the mission mode first, as it unlocks some cool superbikes to satisfy your need for speed.
If you don’t have 100 MB of disk space for Traffic Rider, try a previous version of the same game developer, Traffic Racer. It’s not bad either, but it’s only limited to an endless runner and doesn’t have mission modes.
11.Action / Shooter: Major Mayhem
It’s hard to tell how hilarious Major Mayhem is. This is one of Adult Swim’s fantastic mobile games with a lengthy single player campaign. You play as the titular character, destroying a number of bad guys.
The game is arranged like a shooting gallery. Enemies jump out of cover and you shoot to kill them (or drop bombs if you’re particularly angry).
Enemies will also try to shoot you, so make sure Major Mayhem doesn’t take too much damage himself. Earn bonuses for headshots, kills and tough kills, and upgrade your weapons whenever you can.
12.Combat: Shadow Fight
Since the days of Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter, one-on-one fighting games have become a great way to pass the time.On Android, you should try Shadow Fight.
You will need to learn a lot of punches to become a real warrior. The game has two action buttons as well as a directional key. Learn combinations and you will soon become a fantastic ninja.
Shadow Fight 2D art style with silhouettes instead of characters adds charm. It’s all about the fighting here, not about any excesses.
13. Platformer: Shadow Blade Zero
Kuro Ninja can be your new favorite in-game mascot.Nothing will stop him in his quest to find his teacher and convey an important message.
Jump into the world of Shadow Blade and you will slash enemies and jump over traps until you find your master.
14. Endless Runner: Crossy Road
Crossy Road is far more exciting than you think, and impressively available for free, despite the amount of work that went into creating it.
8-bit pixel art style is great.You control a chicken that just wants to cross the road. Click to go one lane; swipe in any direction to move that side.
Avoid cars on highways, streams in your path and get to the safe green grass as often as possible. And you need to move fast!
Lasers have come to the top of the Reddit poll for the best offline games for Android. Start playing and it will become clear why. The game is intuitive but challenging.
Each level starts with at least one active laser and one or more targets. You will also have a set of mirrors, glasses, or other types of blocks to move around.
Position them so that the laser hits each target.
16.Racing: Asphalt Nitro
Unlike the gigabytes that its siblings need, Asphalt Nitro only takes up 110MB of space – and works even on an old device.The
Nitro is a stripped-down version of the popular Asphalt racing series.The graphics are not that good, but the gameplay is good. Get into your car, start competing and keep improving your car.
You have to go through 125 levels of increasing difficulty, which is enough for racing.
There are many good racing games out there, but they often require an internet connection. Asphalt Nitro fully meets the requirements for “free, offline, long play time.”
17.Strategy: Plants vs.Zombies 2
Plants vs. Zombies 2 was a hit when it launched in 2015. Despite the fact that several years have passed, it is still considered one of the best strategy games for mobile.
Your task is pretty simple in PvZ2. You have many plants with different abilities. Zombies want to enter your yard and kill you. Plan the plant in such a way that it can destroy the zombies before the undead can do any harm.
Although the game actively promotes in-app purchases, you do not need to purchase anything to enjoy this game.
18.RPG: Pixel Dungeon
It’s rare to find a free game with no ads or hidden purchases. Rejoice, Pixel Dungeon is a fantastic RPG that is completely free.
You play as a warrior, hunter, magician or rogue stuck in dungeons and looking for adventure.
Explore lower and lower, finding new secrets, monsters, potions and magical plants.Pixelated design and text commentary is cherry on top for what is already a fun game.
You won’t understand where the time went when you upgrade your character and explore the dungeon.
Football is the most popular sport in the world, so it’s only natural that the Play Store is full of football games. Many of them are great, but when you’re offline you want to keep playing.
Flick Soccer is an annually updated game with great graphics, accurate gameplay and a good physics engine.
All you have to do is score goals. Move the ball along the correct trajectory to go past the goalkeeper and defenders. Increasing the goal, such as increasing time, doubling points, etc., can increase your score.
20.Board (and Multiplayer): Sea Battle 2
Remember the good old Sea Battle game? You and your opponent plot your ships on a grid map and fire missiles at coordinates, trying to sink them all. This digital getaway, Sea Battle 2, is as fun as the original.
Offline, you can play against the AI and keep improving. But you can also play this game in multiplayer mode via Bluetooth.
This is the only game on the list that can be played by two players without an internet connection. In fact, two people can play on the same phone, taking turns. This way, even if your passenger neighbor hasn’t installed it, you both can have a good time on the flight.90,000 The Reddit and GameStop Phenomenon: How Social Media Hobby Investors Broke Wall Street
During the pandemic, the stock market faced an influx of small retail investors.By some estimates, they account for up to 25% of US stock trading, making them a notable strength. And this new “army of traders is not focused on valuations, but rather on the impulse opportunities they see on social media like wallstreetbets, YouTube, TikTok or Robinhood,” one Financial Times analyst noted. On the Web, they are vying with each other that the prevailing foundations and rules of Wall Street have come to an end.
According to Bloomberg, analysts’ opinions on what is happening differ: some believe that this is just a game played by users of the Internet community, others believe that this is a way of protesting against established economic institutions.
The “Reddit effect” was not limited to GameStop alone. For example, on January 27, Nokia, which was once among the leaders in the smartphone market, but has long lost its influence, rose in price by almost 40%. Other companies, whose shares have suddenly risen in price, have also become “victims” of Reddit, according to the community of the BCS investment company.
As for GameStop itself, analysts expect the quotes to return to a more fair level sooner or later. On January 25, Telsey Advisory Group downgraded GameStop’s stock and warned that there was no link between the company’s current market valuation and its fundamentals.”We consider the current share price and valuation levels unacceptable and expect the shares to return to a more normal and fair value driven by fundamental factors,” added the analysts.
Some investors point out that what is happening now “must have legal and regulatory implications. It is unnatural, insane and dangerous.”
The fears of large funds are understandable: the huge growth is caused by impulsive decisions of investors, and not by the company’s fundamentals.It is difficult to predict how long retail buyers who act in spite of funds will hold out, BCS noted. And due to the high speculative component, the price can either continue its impulsive growth or sharply adjust.
But what the story with GameStop has definitely confirmed is that forums and social networks can increasingly influence price movements in the stock markets, and fundamental investors will have to take this into account.90,000 watch on YouTube August 4, 2021 Mission Outbound watch online Mission Bash Free in good quality Mission to Fire watch online classmates # 2 [FULL FILM] Suicide Squad 2: Mission Bash online August 4, 2021 # Suicide Squad 2: Mission Bash # Suicide Squad 2: Mission Bash: Watch on YouTube August 4, 2021 FILM 2021 Suicide Squad 2: Mission Bash Online Movie Suicide Squad 2: Mission Bash Free in good quality Suicide Squad 2: Mission Bustle watch online classmates # 2
The film does not try to portray the protagonists as good characters – they remain antiheroes to the end.The Shark King gets a touching scene in the aquarium, where he meets his subjects and for a moment reunites with his element. But this does not detract from his bloodthirstiness and ability to kill. Characters evolve through interesting, unexpected, well-noticed details (like the Dot Man, who sees his mother’s reflection in everyone), rather than through drawn-out, sentimental dialogues and confusing flashbacks, as in Air’s version. The first version of 2016 Suicide Squad, directed by David Eyre, grossed over $ 740 million with a budget of $ 175 million).But critics bombed her for a weak script, poor editing and slurred tone of the film – sometimes comedic, sometimes ultra-serious. The follow-up Justice League by Joss Whedon received poor reviews, and cyborg performer Ray Fisher sharply criticized Warner Bros. In this regard, the DC cinematic universe was going through hard times. Of the latest DCEU projects, critics and viewers, judging by the ratings on aggregators and positive reviews, liked only the comedy “Shazam!” 2019.The only real drawback of the film “Suicide Squad: Mission Bash” can be called the fact that all of the above viewers have already seen in Gann’s projects. Even a recognizable, repeated plot is distinguished by originality – a team of characters who do not get along with each other are united by a common mission, which they will fulfill together in the final. This almost completely coincides with the “Guardians of the Galaxy” formula, only the scenery changes. I will not go into further details of the plot, I do not want to deprive you of the pleasure of opening it yourself.Just note that James Gunn is really a talented screenwriter (and also a musician, here is his 1994 album). He managed to weave into a simple story of villains with explosives in the back of their heads, a completely logical narrative that does not raise doubts about the motivation of the main characters. But do not try to draw any conclusions about the film now, it is far from as simple as it might seem. Thanks to interesting, non-uniform characters, Gann managed to make the film both funny and lyrical. For example, Bloodsport in the film is constantly bickering with the Peacemaker and literally personifies toxic masculinity.But at the same time, he is able to find a common language with other characters – so that scenes with him do not look too serious or inappropriate. This is not a stupid brutal bone breaker, but a full-fledged person with his own pros and cons, capable of both true heroism and fatal mistakes. Verdict In the hands of Gunn Bloodsport, Harley, Flag, Peacemaker, Polka-Dot Man, and the entire core of the Squad, it turned out to be funny and memorable without trying to knock out compassion from the viewer. Bloodsport is a brutal and strong character, so he doesn’t need tearful flashbacks with his daughter, unlike Deadshot from the David Eyre movie.On the contrary, there is a certain tragedy in the Pied Piper, behind which there is clearly a sad story; therefore, her story about her father looks appropriate, does not seem superfluous and can touch the viewer. The very first scene of The Squad with the battle on the beach is similar to the opening scene of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.
