My GENSHiN iMPACT End of the Road

What a fun and beautiful gaming experience this was even for someone like me who’s pretty much anti-phone-gaming. I would like to play it further, but I can no longer continue due to miHoYo‘s unfortunate save state and graphics issues.

ส่วนมากฉันเป็นคนไม่ชอบเล่นเกมในโทรศัพท์แต่ฉันสนุกมากกับเกมนี้ฉันอยากเล่น Genshin Impact อีกแต่ save ไม่ได้และมัน error ที่เดิมเสมอ

How much money did you drop into this game? Fellow players are spending hundreds and even thousands of dollars trying to get lucky with this gacha star game. I spent $0, so no complaints from me, just a thought…

คุณเสียตังค์ไปเท่าไหร่แล้วกับการเล่นเกมนี้เห็นหลายคนเสียเงินเยอะกับเกมนี้แต่ฉันเล่นฟรีก็เลยไม่มีสิทธิ์ที่จะบ่นอะไรแต่ว่าฉันมีไอเดีย

miHoYo is a centralized company with the goal of making as much cash as possible, but imagine how great this game would’ve been if it had a decentralized nature like that of Splinterlands where all the weapons and items are NFTs. Even if you lost interest in the game, you could come back months or even years later to find those rare items and characters you won, but sadly forgot about, have seen crazy amounts of value come their way.

miHoYo คือ บริษัทที่เป็น centralized และมีเป้าหมายที่จะได้เงินเยอะที่สุดที่เป็นไปได้แต่ผมคิดว่า Genshin Impact จะดีกว่าถ้าทุกอย่างเป็น NFT เหมือนในเกม Splinterlands สมมุติว่าเราไม่ได้เล่น Genshin Impact มานานแต่พอเรากลับมาเล่นเลยเห็น NFT ของเรามีค่าเยอะขึ้น

They made $2 billion dollars off this game so far, which means they’re doing the right thing for the stockholders and investors, but as a gamer, I would have actually spent some of my money on those lucky falling stars if I’d known the weapons and characters I could win would be my own NFTs.

ฉันเล่นเกมนี้ฟรีแต่ถ้าฉันรู้ว่าสิ่งที่ซื้อไว้คือ NFT ฉันอาจจะลงทุนตัวจริงในเกมนี้

Another problem I had with the game was that I was playing it on my phone. I’m an old-school gamer and just can’t enjoy using sluggish and awkward touchscreen controls, especially on a small screen like a phone. If by some miracle miHoYo lets me continue where I left off when I get my PlayStation, then I’ll happily jump right back in, but I can’t be bothered to start all over again. It’s not like this is a Zelda game. Another thing I hate about the save game situation is that your progress is reset if you change servers. What the hell’s up with that? I live in Asia but my kids live in America. So I’m supposed to have two accounts? One for my friends and one for my kids? That’s just stupid. I should be able to change servers without losing all my progress. What was miHoYo thinking?

ฉันเล่นเกมมา 30 ปีแต่จริงๆแล้วไม่ชอบเล่นเกมในโทรศัพท์เลยฉันขอให้เล่นเกมนี้ต่อเวลาซื้อ PlayStation แต่รู้จะเป็นไปไม่ได้ฉันไม่ชอบด้วยที่เปลี่ยน server ต้องเริ่มใหม่หมดเลยฉันอยู่ที่ประเทศลาวแต่ลูกชายอยู่ที่อเมริกาสมมุติว่าอยากเล่นกับเขาฉันต้องเริ่มบัญชีใหม่ทำไม miHoYo ทำแบบนี้วะ

I really enjoyed Genshin Impact and miHoYo‘s previous game, Honkai Impact 3rd so I’ll be keeping an eye out for what they come out with next. I had some good memories playing Genshin Impact this year, but I remember having to switch between low-resolution and high-resolution mode anytime I wanted to take a picture for fear of my gameplay looking like it came from a PlayStation 2. I really wanted to get this picture of me sneaking past the sleeping robot hoping he didn’t wake up while I switched to high resolution, snapped the shot, and switched back to low resolution again. I’m glad I didn’t wake him up because I never did beat one of these robot things before.

ฉันสนุกกับ Honkai Impact 3rd และ Genshin Impact และจะรอดูว่า miHoYo จะมีอะไรใหม่ฉันมีประสบการณ์ที่ดีในการเล่นเกมนี้แต่ผมต้องเปลี่ยนคุณภาพเสมอที่จะถ่ายรูป

Amber can unlimitedly shoot fire arrows which made her my favorite character. If the game ever jumped into an online co-op mode I’d make sure I helped out my buddy but from a distance.

ชอบมากที่ Amber ยิงธนูไฟได้เสมอกระสุนไม่เคยหมด

Flying was the best part of the game for me. I could never get a good picture flying in HD mode even though my phone was marketed to me as a gaming phone. I’m sure getting screenshots from a console will be easy to do.

ที่ชอบมากที่สุดในเกมนี้คือเราสามารถบินได้

Stormterror

This part of Genshin Impact should be called Storm Error. If you get stuck in this CGI failure of game design, you can hold down on attack and still beat Stormterror even though you can’t see what you’re doing.

ถ้า Genshin Impact error แบบนี้เราไม่สามารถมองเห็นได้เพียงแต่เรากดปุ่มยิงค้างไว้เราสามารถยิง Stormterror ได้

I first played Genshin Impact on my iPad Pro when it first came out and it would get stuck anytime Stormterror would show up without any way of getting past the animation scene that was crashing the game. It happened again on my phone, so I can no longer progress in this game, and like I said before I prefer using a Sony PlayStation controller over any touchscreen gaming.

ฉันขอแนะนำเล่น Genshin Impact กับ PlayStation เพราะว่าเราไม่สามารถเล่นใน iPad และโทรศัพท์ได้

GENSHIN IMPACT: First Impressions Review

This was the first game recommended by the App Store and looked like an interesting RPG, so I gave it a go. I’ve always like Japanese animation and video games, so it was exciting to play this merging of the two. It is very interesting how they’ve finally made a game look like a living animation. The characters and world are 3D characters, but look and feel like they were hand drawn from any angle.

The characters are voiced with good actors which helped me get into the game more. I hate RPGs that make me read. If I wanted to read, I’d check out the latest HIVE posts or read Google News, but when I play games, I want to feel emerged in the environment and forget about the actual world and reading ruins the experience for me. They still display the texts so you can read what the characters are about to say so you can read faster than the characters speak if you want to jump to the next line or scene too.

I also like that the characters can interact with the environment properly. If there is a mountain or tree, you can climb up it.

I’m using an old iPad to play this. Even though it is 5 years old, it’s still an iPad Pro and has never had any problems until today. I think this game was meant for something more powerful like a PS4 because it would stutter during big animation scenes and would have a lot of black fog in the distance. Maybe when I get a new phone I’ll try this again because the stuttering scenes ruined the experience for me. It could be that I’m just running the demo and if the whole thing gets downloaded it works better.

Unfortunately for me, my iPad only has 32GB of storage which is almost full. Maybe I’ll go on a mad picture deleting spree and install the whole 4GB of game data and see if that helps to improve the experience.

It kind of feels like playing a Zelda game. You have a sword, some magic ability, and have wings for gliding. I really believe that artists will be able to animate whole worlds like this simply by thinking or talking about it with an advanced AI in the near future. If they can do this now, imagine what it will be like when computers can read our thoughts in five or ten years.

I was only able to make it to the first town before I started having problems again when a dragon shows up, but the whole screen has gone black so I can’t see ANYTHING. I’ve tried reseting and loading only the game to see if it works, but I got nothing but black again. Such a shame because I was really enjoying this game. Oh well, I’ll try again on the PS4 or PS5 where it will look great. This is a great game and I wish I could play it more. I don’t know if it’s my iPad or bad game design, but I can’t continue from this point. Have you played this game too? What was your experience like?
