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…

Intkeys.com Review

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…

HOMEFRONT

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…
