What I call a good game


For a game to be good it has to meet one  of my  most important standards. A game can’t be just single player. First game that comes to mind is a game called Fallout 3. AMAZING game yet it lacked the one thing that grinds my gears, multiplayer. Back before they fixed the game’s ending, you would beat it and be like “WHAT???” And the only way to play it  before was to have a earlier game save and skip the final mission. Singleplayer may have been cool a couple of years ago, but now it’s not. Multiplayer is the best way to keep a game “alive”  Of couse the downside of this is now game developers are making games shorter and shorter and focusing on the multiplayer aspect. But honestly, i’m cool with that. But i’m not cool with spending 60-70 bucks on a game just to player online with people. Because then you have to pay for game addons, monthly subscriptions and so forth. As long as the game can provide a somewhat satisfying storyline, and maybe provide the opportunity to play with people through that, that would bring me one step closer to consider buying the game. There are plenty of games out there that are short but provide endless possibilities online. Call of Duty, Halo, Gears of War and Bulletstorm are some of the games that i can think of off the top of my head.

My most memorable moment in gaming


Just off the top of my head, one of my most memorable moments come from a game called Runescape. Back in the day when i first started out, pvp was very popular. What you basically did was strap on some crappy armor and weps and went out hoping to find someone either lower level than you or wearing armor worse than you. Me and 2 of my friends went out in a place the game calls “The Wilderness.” As we came near the end of the road, we saw someone. As soon as we caught up to him we realized we had ran into a huge clan. Since I always stuck in the back (because I’m a coward) I took off. My other 2 friends didn’t stand a chance. I managed to make it out of there alive. So that’s my most memorable moment, aside from making me look like a total coward. What’s yours?

PC to Console…


Not too long ago, G4 had a posted some facts about an interview with the CEO of Blizzard, Mike Morhaime. Click here to read the article

 To sum it up, they talked about how well Torchlight did when it was sent over to the console. They wanted  to have the option of making the game more accessible to people. And in my opinion, that also grants them more income. Personally i believe that this game should belong to only PC.  Blizzard loves money, just look at how World of Warcraft works.There are plenty of games out there for consoles, let us PC gamers have ours. To be a PC gamers, is to be part of a dying breed. People have to spend lots of money upgrading their computers to keep up with today’s hottest games.What do you think?

The Interview


Since I’m require to have a interview pertaining to the site. I picked a fellow gamer of mine to ask a few questions about diablo 3. Enjoy!

Also, this video isn’t of best editing. I hate macs and i suck using them.

Auto Stats…Less Freedom?


Quite some time ago Bashiok (who is a forum admin) talked about how stat points are distributed. For the newcomers, stat points are what is used every time you gain a level to help customize your class you are playing. Back in Diablo 2, you gained so many stat points every time you leveled and you could put them in 4 different stats. Strength, Dexterity, Vitality, and Energy. When you put these points in you were basically stuck with them. Havn’t played diablo 2 for quite some time but i think they implented a 1 time stat reset. In Diablo 3, when you gain a level your stats are increased automatically. I’ve heared alot of people complaining about how that will ruin the customizability and freedom but if you really think about it, it won’t. Like Bashiok was saying if you level yourself up as say a fire sorceress and you’re near the end of the game and a melee based sorceress piece drops, you can just pick it up and go. As for the skill points, i’m going to take a wild guess and say their going to let us reset them as we need with of course paying some gold or something else to do it. What do you all think about the auto stat feature?

Diablo 3 Class: Demon Hunter


The final class announced was the Demon Hunter. We’ll call it DH for short. The DH can easily be compared to world of warcraft’s hunter mixed with a rouge, but darker and more twisted. Their able to use archery attacks at a distance and then utilize close range attacks quick and accurately. The Diablo 3 site has a better explanation and you can view some of their attacks on there. But in this case, here’s some gameplay footage.

Diablo 3 Class: Wizard


If you’ve ever played diablo, you’d know that this class would never miss a sequal. Using magic, the wizard obliterates his enemies using the forces of nature we’ve come to know so well.  Wizards don’t rely on heavy armor to protect them. They can use their magic to shield and aid them. Want proof? Check it out. 

Diablo 3 Class: Witch Doctor


One of the next classes announced was the Witch Doctor. This old geezer specializes using evil minions to tear apart his victims and curses and poisons to torture them in the process. This guy is pretty much like a necromancer.. on steriods. The Witch Doctor can steal souls from his victims and use them against his enemies as a force to be reckoned with.

Diablo 3 Class: Barbarian


One of the first classes every announced was the Barbarian. Think of a barbarian as a giant piece of meat.. with weapon. These guys can take the most damage and deal straight up melee to their victims. There are 5 different classes and each will be posted in due time.
