In case you guys needed more motivation to buy this.
July 14, 2011
I’m going to try and bring something a little different to the site by show casing some great trailers and videos of existing and upcoming games across all platforms. Here’s my first….. Deus Ex began as one of the first games to combine the genres of RPG and First-Person Shooters into a single game back in 2000 being listed as one of the best games of all time here’s a trailer: After the success of Deus Ex a sequel named: Deus EX: Invisible War was released and pretty much tanked compared to the success of the first, here’s the trailer: Now we have Deus EX: Human Revolution a PREquel to Deus Ex using (I hope) all the awesomeness that made the original so great! Let’s hope it can live up to the pedigree of the first and not crash andRead more…

Games for Windows + Xbox = ?
Games for Windows will merge with Xbox.com tomorrow July 11th making Xbox.com a single stop for console, PC and mobile gaming no specifics have been released other than the date of the merger confirmed at Joystiq.com and Eurogamer.com. Here’s a link to the forums at xbox.com to check up on the “heated” debate on the merger. Check it out here: I think this is a sensible move to have one site for all gaming platforms. So what you think? Will this make a difference? Will it affect Steam in anyway?

New Guy on the Blog
Hello Guys, ScrotusKilmystr (“Joe” for short) here, If you haven’t noticed my comments floating about the Blog I tend to have an opinion for everyone’s posts. So The Soundman broke down and asked me to write an article here and there. I will apologize in advance for my lack of grammar skills, but I will endeavor to persevere in improving upon it. My background is mainly in the tech support field in hardware and software support but for fun I also work in retail (that was a joke retail is never fun!). My gaming background is long I’m an older gamer and have been so since I found out you could plug something into your TV and control the outcome! I am primarily a console gamer but started as a PC gamer back in the day until Halo: combatRead more…

Thought of the Week: Despite reception we hold on.….
Time for this week’s thought that has been bouncing around my head for two weeks since the Mirror’s Edge and lack of creativity topic; are there games that were either met with mixed reviews or panned by critics that you still hold dear or diligently hope for a sequel? Advent Rising is mine. I love this game and will defend it till the day I die (not to be overly dramatic). It had a story that sucked you in, a unique visual style and one of my favorite soundtracks of all time; but it was plagued by bugs and a shoddy frame rate, and the “flick” system didn’t work as advertised but what game is perfect? This is another game that sits in the categories of “best game no one played” and “creative game that gets buried amongst the tideRead more…

Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force and Windows 7 64bit
This was the first time in a long time that I have had some time off to myself. When deciding what to do with my spare time I decided to bring out my old catalog and play a game that I hadn’t played in years and the first game that popped up was Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force. For those of you who don’t know Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force is an old game, by gaming standards, released in 2000 and follows the exploits of the “hazard team” abord the starship Voyager. The “hazard team” is essentially a team of special forces operatives who are sent out to deal with “dangerous” situations that standard Starfleet personell aren’t equiped to handle, much like your modern day special forces. While playing this it got me to thinking how much simpler the FPSRead more…

The title says it all, it’s a nerds wet dream, watching massive starships slugging it out. It doesn’t matter if there is a reason for it or if they are just there because they can be. It’s exciting and entertaining and today we are going to take a look at some of the best games and movies to play and watch space battles in and we are going to link you to all of the best space battles videos that we can find in one spot. While this does stray from our usual article style I think everyone here loves space battles so I don’t think we will have any complaints! I am one of ‘those’ individuals that could watch a 2 hour movie that consisted entirely of spacebattles and I would watch it over and over again. I’ve actually goneRead more…

Crysis 2 DX11 Patch Released and Comparison
Today Crytec released it’s long awaited DX11 patch for Crysis II. The DX11 content, high res textures, and updated visuals have been a source of much debate within the PC and even console communities. PC gamers argue that the content should of been released with the game instead of waiting several months after it’s release to be put out. Many PC gamers claim that the DX11 patch is to little to late and that by “alienating” their core audience, the PC community, that they have lost the following that they might of otherwise had. Regardless of where you stand on the matter the DX11 patch is available for you to download here and it is a free download to those who have purchased the game. There are several different content packs that you can download depending on what you want. EachRead more…
