My friend gifted this game to me for a bet. If I get 100 hours on this game, he'll get me any game on my wishlist. I said it was going to be easy. 0.8 hours in, what a grave mistake I have made.

Here is just one single problem with Dark Souls 3. Just one problem, out of many.

Here's my essay on blue phantoms.

In order to be summoned as a blue phantom, whose role is to defeat invaders in the worlds of embered host players, there are some ridiculous conditions which must be met. First of all, in order to be summoned as a blue phantom, the host must equip the Way of the Blue covenant item and be invaded. Sounds simple doesn't it? How could this possibly be flawed?
Let's explain why this, as a concept, just does not work reliably (if at all for the majority of players).
Let's look at the Way of the Blue covenant, and how it is absolutely required for any players hoping to be summoned as blue phantoms in to a hosts world and collect covenant items to rank up their covenant level.

To obtain the Way of the Blue covenant item you must speak to Emma in the chapel in Lothric, near the first real boss of the game. Talking to Emma for the first time nets you the item used to proceed past the first boss. You then need to speak to her a second time to receive the Way of the Blue covenant item.
Just from this we can see that we have an issue here. The covenant is partially missable (the reason why I say partially is because if you miss it at the start of the game, you are more or less guaranteed to obtain it towards the end of it when she dies and you have to speak to her as she is dying to proceed to the next part of the game). This right here creates an issue for all players wanting to be summoned as blue phantoms. It won't be missable to many players, but still a significant number which will ultimately affect the multiplayer portion of the game.

20/10 best game, Seriously I give this to my friends all the time............... Explains why I dont have any
But the game is pretty good I highly recomend for it's superb soundtrack, great phsyics/engine. Your basic goal is to kill the cat man, I know it's a rip off of Gotham imposters but with cats and rats , But this does what that game dosen't do and more. Such as the characters are actually realy relateable you got terrorist rat A little edgey but you can relate You got The Batter, if you want to learn more about him he got his own game called OFF. I could go on and on why you should get this game. but, Ultimately it's up to you.

Bad Rats was probably the most heartwarming, bittersweet game I have ever experienced. The character development, unique plot and quizzical battle system was a huge thrill, and everything I have ever been looking for in a game. Each time I placed a rat, I could almost feel like they were my children, ready to explore the vast world laid out for them. I felt proud to watch them scamper off, bombs strapped to their chests with ellusive, illogical plans to brutally murder their good, feline friend, Jerry. This game is definitely worth every penny, and you'll be a changed person by the end of this groundbreaking adventure.

I'm pretty sure that anyone reviewing this game had at least one problem. Wait, no, I'm changing that. I'm pretty sure anyone who played this game had at least 10 problems with it.

With that in mind, let's talk about why Bad Rats sucks. Just like everyone else.

For one, the sound effects are terrible. They sound like sound bites taken off of someone's websit for free. And the constant metallic guitar playing over the gameplay, forced me to turn the game on mute, and play some Queen over it.

But that didn't stop the graphics from looking damned horrid. These graphics are early 2000's levels of quality. And that wouldn't bother me as much, if the poor textures and coloring looked like someone just vomited ugly colors are the characters and backgrounds.

The game is around getting a ball to a trap (which varies between six different types of traps) that a cat has always conveniently positioned themselves under. But... why a ball? A rat could easily walk up to the doohickey and activate it. Why a ball?

Along with that, the game is based around momentum and gravity puzzles, but because the physics are so poorly integrated, you'll often have to restart your test, in case the ball didn't land where it was supposed to. And it's hard to tell when you've messed up or when the game messed up. So, I'll just call it a draw, and say that the developers messed up.

I'd actually say that the game is elevated to a "good bad game". Manhunter is still my #1 good bad game, but Bad Rats really takes the cake, taking what could be really monotonous gameplay, and makes it some of the stupidest sh** you've ever seen. Whether a rocket rat hits and offensive Muslim stereotype rat and they explode, or one rat will just keep hitting the wall with his bat.

It's ESPECIALLY hilarious, when you see how the developers designed the be all end all solution to the puzzle, and it fails spectacularly because the game's physics are so crappy.

I'm not recommending this game to anyone out there wanting a quality game. Just look at the reviews. Look at the advertizing. It's garbage. Don't buy it. However, I'm giving it a soft recommend to anyone looking to play a good bad game. I'd consider Manhunter to be something like "The Room", but Bad Rats is the insane nonsensical equal to "Baby Geniuses". I'm giving this game a well-deserved 2/10.

There is a reason why "bad" is in the title.
If you press "run" on a setup multiple time, the results are not the same every time...

If your looking for a review on this game you've come to the wrong place, but if your looking for an outstanding pie recipe you've come to the right place.

Ingredients:
1. 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
2. 1/2 cup white sugar
3. 1/2 cup brown sugar
4. 1/4 cup water
5. 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
6. 1 pinch salt
7. 5 apples - peeled, cored and sliced
8. 1 pastry for double-crust pie

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
2. Combine butter, white sugar, brown sugar, water, cinnamon, and salt in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, remove from heat and set aside.
3. Roll out half the pastry to fit a 9-inch pie plate. Place bottom crust in pie plate; pour in apple slices.
4. Roll out top crust into a 10-inch circle. Cut into 8 (1-inch) wide strips with a sharp paring knife or pastry wheel. Weave the pastry strips, one at a time, into a lattice pattern. Fold the ends of the lattice strips under the edge of the bottom crust and crimp to seal.
5. Pour butter-sugar mixture over top of pie, coating the lattice, and allowing any remaining sauce to drizzle through the crust.
6. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and bake until the crust is golden brown, the caramel on the top crust is set, and the apple filling is bubbling, 35 to 40 more minutes. Allow to cool completely before slicing.
