Blizzard’s Advertising for it’s next MMO

    Product placement in gaming isn’t something I exactly agree with, but you just know it’ll slowly make it’s way into the industry. Especially when you consider games are becoming cheaper and their shelf life is diminishing. As such, Blizzard has advertised a “Franchise Development Producer” for it’s next MMO currently named “Project Titan̶...

New Xbox Live “Entertainment Apps” Now Available

We live in a time where shortening terms and making minimalistic phrases out of words has become the trend, “Apps” is an example of this and it’s disgusting. Okay maybe that’s abit harsh, but making things sound cool by shortening them is abit lame. But the good news, Youtube is now available on your dashboard, yay! Also If you have Verizon FiOS in the US, you’ll be able to...

The Last of Us Will Blow Your Mind

Naughty Dog recently had their say on the “poor standard” of story-telling in video games, revealing its aim to “change the f***ing industry” with the PlayStation 3-exclusive The Last of Us. Have you seen the Trailer? Zombie Apocalypse mixed with father/daughter relationship is what you can gather from the impressive debut, Creative director and writer Neil Druckmann confir...

The World’s Biggest Lan… is How Big?

The biggest LAN in the World (Lanky Angry Nerds, as my mates used to call them) happened in Sweden a few days back, they’re called the “DreamHack Festivals”. We’re talking like 12,000 plus people here, that’s insane! And it’s been going on for quite a few years, how gross would it get inside there? In my experience all you need is 4 gamers in one room for long e...

Skyrim – Which Perspective Do You Play?

Talking in the third person is a sign of the crazy’s, but playing Third person is a joy, especially in the vast expansive world of Skyrim. In previous iterations of The Elder Scrolls Series first person was the better option for combat, which didn’t sit well with some gamers and I was one of them. If Skyrim didn’t have it’s improved Third Person camera/animations I probably...

Assassin’s Creed: Revelations to be released without DRM on PC

Not much to report other than the fact that it’s good news! Ubisoft confirmed that the next game in the Assassin’s Creed series will ship on PC without Ubisoft’s notoriously disliked ‘always on’ anti-piracy software. The news comes from gaming site Rock Paper Shotgun, which played with the theory that because of the technical issues and widespread consumer revulsion a...

Will Nokia and Microsoft create a new player?

So here is another culprit with the iPhone 4S, another one bites the dust. As someone who doesn’t really hold any allegiances to either Apple or Android and has owned both, I can’t conclusively say I prefer one or the other. They essentially both do the same things I need, and it is just a phone. I would say for everyday use the iPhone is probably more user friendly, especially with em...

Assassin’s Creed: Moshpit

Forget the Assassin’s Creed Revelation’s Trailer, this is more interesting! I remember seeing this for the first time in-game, when you poison an NPC and they go into an arm flailing fit, it looks exactly like what happens in one of those lame moshpits. It looks ridiculious, “Slam dancing” or attempting to slam dance in this case. I think it points how forgiving the game ca...
