Aliens: Colonial Marines Review Type Thing

As a huge fan of anything Alien or Predator, this game is not worth playing. Even if you just want the "atmosphere" of Aliens, you won't find it here. The graphics are horrible at the highest settings (roughly 2003-4 era graphics), the acting and story is worse than a MST3K movie, and the Aliens are a joke.

I tried, really tried, to give this a go since I got it for basically free and *supposedly* recent patches have improved it.... Read More about Aliens: Colonial Marines Review Type Thing

"Dungeonbowl Review" -- or -- "Reasons NOT to buy Dungeonbowl"

I'm a long time Bloodbowl fan, and the fan created Dungeonbowl rules were quite fun, and eventually considered a standard in the Bloodbowl. So when Cyanide came out with a digital version of Bloodbowl, I was all over it. And despite its many flaws, I do really like ... mostly because it lets me play Bloodbowl without trying to gather the 3 people in my area (MAYBE 3) that still actually like to play.

My time in Guild Wars 2 Beta - Classy

Yesterday I promised I'd write a shorter article on the classes I played while roaming around Guild Wars 2. It might have been a bad play for me to promise it would be a shorter talk but I am keeping my promise about the second article! So, without any further typing, here it is!

The classes for Guild Wars 2 are as follows: thief, ranger, necromancer, mesmer, elementalist, warrior, guardian, and engineer. I played all of them briefly and the elementalist and guardian the most. Read More about My time in Guild Wars 2 Beta - Classy

My time in Guild Wars 2 Beta

I'm no wizard, sorcerer, or any other conjuror of magic, I just happen to get into a few betas!

Anyway, here in lies my thoughts of the weekend I spent in the Guild Wars 2 beta. It was sort of open so there's no NDA I have to fear.

Guild Wars 2 has been the MMO I've been waiting for both in terms of me hearing about it and thinking to myself "yeah!" and in terms of my feelings after I played it and thought to myself "yeah!" Why for? The biggest reason, for me, is just how fluid it all is. Read More about My time in Guild Wars 2 Beta

I lied - I bought Star Wars: The Old Republic

"Why would I spend $60 on Old Republic? I have Skyrim to play!" I said.

"Ugh, this beta is pretty bad - how could Bioware have released such a half-baked product?" You may have heard.

Well, now you're seeing me eat my own shoe. I broke down and bought The Old Republic for its launch and have been playing it daily for an hour or two (or many more on select weekends) pretty consistently. I only partially feel bad about spending the money on it. Read More about I lied - I bought Star Wars: The Old Republic

My time in Diablo 3 beta

Oh come on, its only been, what, 3 or 4 months since I last wrote an article! Yeah, I know.

But I've got a good one today! Late last week I got a bet invite to Diablo 3! After beating the Skeleton King (the end boss of act 1 and the end boss of the beta) with all but one class I'm ready to type up my experience with it. First we must explore the "getting there" portion, pre-Saturday patch, then we can get to the good stuff. Read More about My time in Diablo 3 beta

Why I won't be playing Star Wars: The Old Republic

I tested Star Wars: The Old Republic this last Friday as a republic Jedi Knight (how edgy is that?). What you'll see here is from just about 4 hours of game-play, which, yes, is not enough time to truly test everything in the game. I'm going to be quite candid, and while this may seem very negative, my overall rating for the game (well, RTM candidate beta) would be a B-, 74%, 3.7 out of 5, whatever. I'll just go straight down the list of the focus areas I generally care about. Read More about Why I won't be playing Star Wars: The Old Republic

Abandon all hope, ye who hoped to see Diablo 3 this year

If you hoped to see Diablo 3 by the end of this year, as was previously stated, well, hope is lost!

Word on the Diablo 3 main site tells us that Blizzard is officially pushing the game back to early 2012 in hopes of using that time to open up the beta a little more and ironing out issues found in said beta.

/sigh

I still hold to hope that we will see Diablo 3 before the end of the world.

Though, now that I think of it, is there any major religion that sites the games release as one of the signs of the apocalypse? I think maybe... Read More about Abandon all hope, ye who hoped to see Diablo 3 this year
