Order & Chaos Online

OrderChaosOnlineHaven’t check out the OUYA game page of a few days now.  Until last night.  Where was a lot more games to try.  Which is a good thing.  The more the better.  While most are not that good.  One caught my eye.  It is called Order & Chaos Online.  This is one of may games Gameloft makes.  These guys have been making games for the mobile market for a long time.  I am sure if you have a iOS or Android device you have played one of their games.   Some are good and some not.  Order & Chaos have been around for a few years now.  It is one of those MMORPG’s.  It is the first MMO to be on the OUYA.  I had to give it a try.

Have played a few of these types of games over the years on my computer.  They are all pretty much the same but its nice to play on the TV with a controller.   The game works very well.  It took a while to download since it was over a GB and stopped a few times when lost connection with the sever.  Once downloaded all you need is a Gameloft live log in.  That is every easy to do.  You can make one right from the game.  I tried to make one but it wouldn’t work.  Turns out I have made an account with them and forgot all about it.  Once I rest my password I was in the game.  Have tried games like this before so I kind of new what to do.  That is one downside.  If you ever tired a game like this you are going to feel lost.  Played a few quest and level up a bit.  The game works great.  I can see myself going back in a playing some more.  The game is free to play but like lot of these game it uses microtransactions if you want more gold or items/stuff.  So if you have an OUYA give this game a try.  One of the better made games out so far.

Ouya.jpgYes, back again talking about the OUYA.  Now that I have one.  Thinking about trying to make a game for it.  It might be fun to give it a go.  Would like to make a simple one, nothing special.  Not to sure what is all involved to make one.  There will be some programing for sure.  Would need to look up a lot of help for that.  Since I am not a programmer.  But do understand some of it.  Just don’t know to put that all together.  I know the SDK or that they are calling it ODK is free to download and use.  As I am typing this (July 24, 2013) there is a new version out, 1.0.6.  You can download that > here.   They all so have a help section under their Developers Portal > here.   When I have some free time going to look into this idea a lot more.  Will be back with updates.

Got My OUYA

Ouya.jpgGot my OUYA in the mail today (Monday July 22, 2013).  Didn’t think it would get here until Wednesday or Friday.  Once I got it out of the box it was very easy to set up.  Just plug the HDMI cable and power cable in.  The HDMI cable is super short.  Think I will have to buy a longer one once I find were I want keep it in TV set up.  Once that’s done you turn it on and pair the control.  All that is every easy.  Have been reading that some people have had trouble with connecting to Wi-Fi.  Had no trouble at all with that.  Once connected to the internet it does a firmware update.  Which doesn’t take along at all.  Next you have to make your user account.  This is the only problem I ran into so far.  Made my account then the internet connection dropped.  But that was an easy fix.  Use deleted the the connection and set that up again.  It worked no problem after that.   Then next thing is to set up your credit card.  I didn’t want to input my info at this point.  Found a work around that lets you use a test numbers.  You can read about that > here.  When I am read to buy some games I will go back and put in my real info.

Have all so heard some bad things about the controller.  I haven’t had any trouble yet.  It works fine.  Will take some getting used to since I use a PS3 controller.  Doesn’t have the same build build quality as a Sony or Microsoft but it is fine.

Plan to try all kinds of games.  Try pairing a PS3 controller.  Then some of the emulators.  I will be back with some updates when I try these and more games out.

Have tired a few games so far.  They are easy to download.  You can download them while still looking the the game lists.  The games I tied so far are,

Shadowgun:  This is a pretty good game.  It controls good.  Easy to play

Critical Missions: SWAT: It is very confusing to set up:  The game is a like a Counter Strike clone

Highway Rally:  This is pretty bad.  I couldn’t it it to work.

King of the Hill:  It is like a Trials HD clone built in flash.  Kind of bad.

Ice Rage: This is fun.  A two on two hockey game.  This is one  I might buy.  Would be fun to pay with friends

Ouya.jpgHave ordered myself an OUYA.  Waiting for it to come in the mail.  Should be here some time next week.  In the mean time found a nice web forum.  It is the unofficial OUYA Forums.  Took a look around at a few post and there is some good stuff here.  Seen one talking about how to pair/use a PS3 or XBox 360 with the OUYA.  There was another one talking about side loading.  This allows you to use apps that are not on it.  Then found a great one on how to  bypass the credit car requirement > here.   It gives you a list of fake numbers for testing purposes.  Can’t buy anything it is there for testing and if you don’t want to use the credit card right way.  There is all so a bunch of posts on emulators.  All these things will come in handy when I get mine.  Will be back with an update once I get it.
