R.A.T 7 Review: Gods Gift to Gamers?

If you are here you are prob­a­bly won­der­ing what the hell that weird look­ing $100 mouse is that you saw at your local micro­cen­ter, Best Buy or Newegg and if it is tru­ly worth the rather steep price tag that is attached to it that my made your girl­friend ques­tion dat­ing you and you wife con­sid­er leav­ing you.  I decid­ed to pick this mouse up after all the hype I have heard around it and the fact that every time I went to ask about it some­where it was almost always sold out.  I have been going to my local Micro­cen­ter after work for 3 weeks now try­ing to pick one up.  I final­ly man­aged to get one today and have been play­ing with it.  After open­ing the box and play­ing with it there sev­er­al things that real­ly stand outRead more…

Guitar Hero — The Bands Breaking Up

Activi­sion Bliz­zard said   that it will be bring­ing the axe down on the “Gui­tar Hero” video game series.  This is quite sur­pris­ing news con­sid­er­ing how pop­u­lar the titles have been.  Bliz­zard also men­tioned that it will be lay­ing off 7% of its staff includ­ing the “Gui­tar Hero” team among them.  Bliz­zard stat­ed that “Due to con­tin­ued declines in the music genre, the com­pa­ny will dis­band Activi­sion Pub­lish­ing’s ‘Gui­tar Hero’ busi­ness unit and dis­con­tin­ue devel­op­ment of (the game) for 2011,” Activi­sion said.  This announce­ment coin­cid­ed with the state­ment of it’s quar­ter­ly fis­cal results.  They have reas­sured the mass­es how­ev­er that it remains ded­i­cat­ed to it’s ever­ly pop­u­lar Call of Duty fran­chise.  The Call of Duty fran­chise has seen more then a bil­lion dol­lars in sales and World of War­craft has more than 13 mil­lion sub­scribers.  These games are clear­ly their mostRead more…

Visceral Games: the art of taking established and making it new……

Fin­ish­ing Dead Space 2 this week was one of my many gam­ing accom­plish­ments I had set for myself this week. Look­ing back on what was an amaz­ing game; Isaac’s inner mono­logue and his freaky glow­ing ori­fice girl­friend Nic­hole were some of the high­lights that had me on the edge of my seat. The con­trols were tight and more refined since the first game and the action sequences were very well done; but I couldn’t help but have the same feel­ing that I had with the first Dead Space, I have played this before. When the first Dead Space was released the com­par­isons to Res­i­dent Evil 4 were indis­putable. It was an over the shoul­der, 3rd per­son sur­vival hor­ror game and the only thing that changed was the sto­ry, set­ting, and char­ac­ters. The games con­trols were very sim­i­lar with the excep­tionRead more…

Two Worlds II Review

The Two Worlds uni­verse has been some what of a hot top­ic when it comes to RPG fans.  You either absolute­ly love the game or you absolute­ly hate it.  Many peo­ple com­pare it to the likes of Obliv­ion and some tout it as the Obliv­ion killer.  I’ve had Two Worlds II for almost a month now and I pur­pose­ful­ly wait­ed to do my review until now because I want­ed to see what the major game sites out there such as IGN, Gamespot, and so forth would say about it.  The orig­i­nal Two Worlds got a bad rap because of alot of bugs, poor graph­ics, etc.  Two Worlds II seems to be get­ting sim­i­lar flak from those game sites.  IGN giv­ing it a 6.0 and Gamespot a 7.5.  On a side note I’ve been under the impres­sion for years that mon­eyRead more…
