Blacklight: Retribution 1st Impressions

Blacklight: Retribution 1st Impressions

So Isotope Toast and myself strapped up last night and checked out the recently released free FPS Blacklight: Retribution on steam from Zombie Studios and Perfect World Entertainment.  When I  first started the game I was kind of overwhelmed by a bunch of pop-ups that are supposed to be informative, but simply ended up  annoying the fuck out of me.  By trying to engage the player by offering a plethora of different options, the game ends up over saturating the GUI with blatant attempts of selling premium features, which is a bit annoying. “Oh, that’s cool! Nice, I can customize my character! Wait..no I [...]

Arma II – Daz Z modification (alpha)

Arma II – Daz Z modification (alpha)

“This is Day Z. This is your story…” The last few weeks for me have all been about ArmA 2 and the Day Z modification. In fact, I have forcefully put aside all other games and Day Z has been the only PC game I’ve been playing lately. Even Diablo III, released just three weeks ago, has had to find a place for itself under some mossy rock. The authenticity of ArmA 2 relocated to a post-apocalyptic world full of zombies is what draws me to my PC’s screen every day. And almost every day, along with several friends, I [...]
