Crysis 3 Open Beta Multiplayer First Look



Got to Say I was having a blast in hunter mode when I figured out how to play it successfully. The graphics of this game as one would expect are top notch. The twitch shooting is on point however I noticed a few times I clearly missed.

Or was totally missed myself and was killed. I don't usually suffer any net lag and it didn't look like performance lag. It really seemed like it was straight up phantom kills out of nowhere. Other than that multiplayer wise it was pretty solid as an experience. I will get more games under my belt and put out more game play stay tuned.   read

Frost and Fire Rains Down On Us Review Vid/Chat



Well we are here again a new patch new events and new things to conquer. First off quaggin back yea NO! I however like the broomstick mount even though it does nothing in making you faster. Moving along fractals is revived and so are normal dungeons. With the new Orr loot added to their tables as well. I have not tried guesting yet but as I have said in the past that was a good idea. And if you haven't left for your favorite server you will be greeted with a hefty fee to do so.

Legendaries got an upgrade yea not what you're thinking. They got visual fixes and upgrades to effects some look a tad on the cheesy side however. Orr got a super duper remix to how it works. With temples receiving new loot and their bosses receiving so raid whipping steroids. Especially Grenth which is horribly broken atm on my server hope it gets fixed soon. Or explain where Grenth got a telekinetic dirt slam spell from? That um one shots everyone in a 30 yard radius.....

The new achievements money is in by the form of Laurels. You can get 2 a day I believe I could be wrong. And you're supposed to get 10 a piece from monthly's completions. So say you get those plus do your dailies everyday that's 80 per month. So easily in two months you could buy anything you want gear wise. So you gear grind trolls go fall in a ditch that is really easy to do.

The new special events have not started yet so I won't go into that maybe another day and another video. All the dungeons received tweaks thief's got nerfed..lol and various classes got curious spell changes. All in all its more fun for us more or less leave your thoughts your rage your blessing you know the drill.   read

Guild Wars 2: Flame and Frost Jan 28th Update Storm's Views



So we have the new patch info up for Jan 28th on the main site. Plenty of good info there likes guesting and the changes to achievements. I hope this breathes life into a very empty world. Most of everyone who is online hides in the main cities. Or live in constant a dungeon that doesn't make for a very fun open world experience.

And you have new gamers trying to do upper level zone events for the very first time. Going through the game a second time gave me perspective on that struggle. But I've always been a loner and scrap my way through zones in games. It's funny to say that because I've been a major guild leader 3 times successfully.

Also coming in that looks fun is the new pvp zone very happily name Silent Storm. Like I said in the video it's not named after me that be cool but it's not. But I do plan on doing something special for a dungeon sharing my name. Hey I had this name since 95 almost twenty years of the storm. Got to add this place to the fun don't you think?

I am hoping the infusions however have a fun new variety of things to add. And also hoping people don't act lazy about doing world achievements to get them. I won't comment on the Quaggan back pack because I'd used a word deemed culturally insensitive to describe that.

Path of Exile Storm's Review



Path of Exile Stormís Break Down

So I waited all the way until a day before open beta. To act like I didnít already know this game was good. I remember this game back when it was a post idea on the Cry Engine forums. That was a long time ago and itís rather refreshing to see an idea come this far.

Diablo Like?

Well yes it is kind of exactly like it in its core and look. The game feels smoother than Diablo 3 better voice acting which is funny to even say that. But at about you hitting the skills screen you soon see something familiar of a totally different nature.

Passive System

Pretty much if you played Final Fantasy 13 and you remember the Crystal skill system. This is almost exactly the same thing on a much larger flexible scale. You can choose your path how you see fit with multiple ways to go. So make your character the way you want and not feel that boxed in.

Character Creation

Unfortunately it appears limited to just the 6 characters base looks. You can pick up items to change your look but thatís about it for customization I can see. Iím sure cash shop things will be added to spice that up.

Is it fun?

Well are Diablo torchlight and any game like it fun to you? If so you may like this game itís not a departure of that style. We will see how much they can add and how well the game will do. I'm cheering it on all the while.[/youtube]

Ok to start I first thought this game was some Predator rip off. But then I started playing and realized even if it was I didn't care. The game is pretty fun and at least a little different in the way it goes about things.

You start out in training lost your memory (of course) you get shown the ropes. After that you get to choose between arch types. Which seem like your standard; Rifle, Recon, Heavy classes with a slight twist. At least at first that's what it looks like until you start playing. Pretty much all the classes are agile the difference is the subtle looks and powers they have.

I only did one mission it has you take on what looks like a space station. You infiltrate it with a team of players or alone. Action is fast paced and no let up on enemies to kill. You have minor security puzzles to conquer as well. Some you will need other players to actually take on. All in all the missions seem like a good time. I learn to not take these games serious and enjoy the fun with in them.

This game does a good job of giving you several different feels. While not making it cheesy or boring grind fest you never want to see again. So my final verdict for the second time in 3 weeks shocking isn't it? Is play this game its worth wasting a little time out of your day.   read
