I Heart Zombies…..
Zombies have been around for decades, hunting down human flesh in movies and video games in light of drama and for laughs. Zombies have brought people together in front of movie screens, video game controllers, and haunted houses. Zombies have peeked an interest in a casual gamer and brought her more into the great light of gaming. When in doubt, know your way out….. Zombieland, was a hit. It was a great zombie satire on a small budget with a great cast. But this movie would peak the interest of a casual gamer, for more of the hoard. Insert Left 4 Dead. A game developed by Turtle Rock Studios before Valve purchased them, you would play as one of four survivors making your way through the zombie hoard from safe house to safe house. Only to grab a controller onRead more…

Game Rig Building with little Scratch
ARTICLE WRITTEN BY SROTUSKILMYSTR This is will be a “short form” for finding all the pieces to build a gaming rig for around 600 bucks give or take, it all depends on you. The easy part is putting one together; it looks hard but not really. Almost every piece is “keyed” meaning it will only fit into a specific slot a specific way and with all of the resources the internet has you should have no problem. Now the hard part…..figuring out what to buy, what will work with what, and getting the biggest bang for your buck! Personally I like AMD (processor manufacturer) over INTEL (same), AMD has always been the underdog but the performance as always gone back and forth between these two competitors. Last I checked INTEL is winning, BUT, you will pay for it! AMD hasRead more…

If you are here you probably have run across www.intkeys.com and saw some of their insanely low prices. If you were like me you immediately were concerned about the legitimacy of their products and if you would even get them at all. I at the suggestion of several of my friends decided to give them at shot to purchase a copy of Homefront which they had for the really low price of $27.99. I am very happy to say that I was extremely impressed with the level of professional service that I received there and the product that I received activated on steam and worked just fine. I also received a copy/photograph of the product and cd key that I had purchased. After my purchase I had several questions about the product that I had bought from them and theyRead more…

The Silent Protagonist: Immersion Creator or Killer
ARTICLE WRITTEN BY IFinners Immersion is an important aspect of all entertainment, and video games in particular have to pay close attention to it. A film can be engrossing, you can empathise with a character or situation or perhaps be so moved or appalled that you become invested in the story. However games go further than this by granting you control of the protagonist and thus making them somewhat of a conduit between yourself and the world the character inhabits. Games utilising a first person perspective amplify this connection further, and this is why a slip into uncanny valley, a glitch or even something as simple as an incoherent plot is often far more jarring than problems in any other medium. To this end the job of the protagonist is a multi-faceted and difficult one; they must drive the mainRead more…

I was lucky enough to get homefront as a gifted pre order and I have to say I’m glad I did. The game is seriously refreshing. Its not a COD clone, its got the important elements of a shooter and doesnt make you feel like the only reason your playing is to see where the story is going, and instead keeps you guessing as to what will happen next. Like any game its got good and bad and in my opinion more good than bad 🙂 However Ill start with the the bad. First its a VERY short game, it took me just under 5 1/2 hours to finish the game, this is the worst factor. Second is that its somewhat glitcy, for instance I had to hit a number key twice from time to time to activate a device,Read more…
