Exclusive interview with Project Eternity’s Josh Sawyer

Exclusive interview with Project Eternity’s Josh Sawyer

So what happens… when one of the most acclaimed and beloved gaming company opens a project on kickstarter? Reaching a mind blowing 1.5 million dollar goal in less than 24 hours is what! Obsidian is remembered throughout the gaming community for incredible titles such as the epic Baldur’s Gate and the award winning Fallout series. While gaming industry writers and story makers are busy squabbling over the definition of art, whether a game fits into it, and debating the idea of games as concrete and valuable storytelling mediums; Obsidian was just out there doing it. Their newest concept Project Eternity [...]

Conclave – The Future of Turn Based RPGs

Conclave – The Future of Turn Based RPGs

Most of us roleplaying gamers remember the days when we sat around a table in a musky basement playing pen-and-paper adventure games with friends. Rolling the dice, adopting a unique personality, being terrorized by the game master – all things which ended as soon as life began to catch up. One friend moved across the world, others became too busy, kids came into the picture, all things which made it impossible to gather up for some proper pen and paper gaming. 10×10 Room developers think they found the solution to the problem. Many online games would like to consider themselves [...]

Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse

Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse

Alright, so it’s not very often that the government (any of them) do some pretty awesome things. This is an exception! The FEMA and CDC have released a blog post listing down what to do in case of a Zombie Apocalypse. Yup, you read that correctly. Some claim it’s a waste of taxpayers’ money, I say it’s a proof that these people are human with a sense of humour. Let’s be honest, who actually reads regular disaster emergency action plans? This one though, is nice and funny and actually worth reading. Learning should be fun, and people will remember things [...]

Smite Me

Smite Me

The game where you get to play gods! (Jesus and Mohammed sold separately) So amidst the controversy (dun dun dun), surrounding Hi-Rez’s newest title, I decided to take the risk of having my politically correct immortal soul ruined and test the SMITE beta. And whaddaya know, Kali is TONS of fun to play. We’ll get back to the controversy in a moment, but let’s first catch up on what exactly SMITE is. Successor, or copycat, of games like League of Legends, SMITE is a third person perspective MOBA. That’s multiplayer online battle arena for you laymen. You get to pick [...]

Expeditions: Conquistador – Preview

Expeditions: Conquistador – Preview

Expeditions: Conquistador  or How women were totally the best soldiers ever! There was a time in videogame history when players were not coddled. They were not hugged and no one held their hands while they attempted to take their first fledgling steps across level 1. No. That shit was hard! The first computer gamers (let’s ignore pinball and coin machines like Pong) were mostly made by geeky kids with geeky brains who tried to make the geekiest game for their geeky friends to play. Most of that is gone today, games are played by everyone. Literally, I don’t think there is [...]

World of Tanks – Physics Patch

World of Tanks – Physics Patch

World of Tanks learns the laws of Physics, and tanks learn to fly! sort of… If you haven’t heard of World of Tanks yet and you consider yourself a “gamer” – you’re not. The third-person shooter, somewhat tactical, packed with action and, above all, free-to-play PvP only game has been raging around the world for a little more than two years now. It is by far the most successful microtransaction model game to hit the western world, and likely to be the most successful game to come out of Russia since Tetris. Now that you’re all caught up, the point [...]
