not to get too hyped, but this game sounds like something from my dreams. I've always disliked class systems that lock you into a role. I've always disliked straight up faction vs faction systems. There are some games that come close but always end up just being an endless level grind. I really hope the devs are able to pull of a "no grind" mmo. … [Read more...] about How did I not know about this game until now?
Teaser at the end of avengers end game
Halloween just recently ended and what better way than for all video game lovers to commemorate it than play some great horror video games? While you can find some great horror games online and play them with the William Hill promo code, you can try some of the offline games as well. The 7 Scary Video Games to Try Out Here is a look at some moments will jog your memory. Silent Hill (Talking fetus ) When the teaser for Silent Hill was released we all knew this was one video game that would stand out. The teaser was enough for some of us to keep away from it but well we couldn’t. The anticipated Silent Hill toyed with our minds after introducing a talking fetus. Gamers were horrified enough by the game itself but when you have a rich, throaty-voiced baby talking to you then that a whole other level of creepy. Max Payne’s Hallucinations. The plot basically follows Max Payne who is trying to revenge the death of his wife and baby. Max becomes a vigilante who uses … [Read more...] about The Seven Scary Video Games You Need to Try
Hey! Hey you! Yeah, you the I’m-so-bored-with-all-of-these-MMOs gamer! You’ve been grousing about for years how MMOs never take risks, never innovate, and are merely content to rehash the same-old fantasy tropes that were stale even when World of Warcraft launched, right? Yes, we at Massively OP saw your poorly spelled Reddit post on that subject, thank you. Well, what if I were to tell you that there’s an MMO that bucks the clichés? It’s true! Imagine an MMO that exists in a post-apocalyptic fantasy setting that’s unlike anything you’ve seen before. Imagine that combat isn’t merely hotbar button mashing but tactics mixed with positioning. Imagine that you can create your character to look any way you want from the onset instead of having to collect certain pieces of gear. Imagine an immersive world that is a delight to the eyes and ears. Got all that? Want to play it? Well, you can’t. That game was The Chronicles of Spellborn, and … [Read more...] about The Game Archaeologist: The Chronicles of Spellborn
Drew Karpyshyn (author of the the Mass Effect books, the Star Wars: Darth Bane trilogy, as well as the upcoming Star Wars: The Old Republic – Revan) is one of the authors I “favorited” on my Goodreads page, so that was how I saw the notification for a new entry on his blog yesterday, in which he contrasts Revan as a game character versus a book character: “To put it bluntly, Revan in the book will not be the uber-powered death machine you controlled at the end of the video game. You might have min-maxed your character to smack Darth Malak down in seconds without breaking a sweat, but in a book that battle would have been a brutal, hard fought affair spread over multiple pages. In a video game it’s fun to kill hundreds of Sith Masters, but in a book that would just be boring. It would suck out any drama or conflict or tension, and as an author I have no interest in writing that. Now, I suspect some of you are already getting worked up about how … [Read more...] about Books Versus Games
Get that toilet out, it’s time for more Steam releases. What can I say about this week’s Steam releases other than to say it might be the worst week I have seen in a long time. Over 250 releases of which nine might be worth looking into. If you’re a fan of hentai puzzle sliders and trashy Unity games, this list unfortunately won’t cater to your tastes. For everyone else, you might find something worth playing or at least adding to your wishlist until the next Steam sale. #1: Pixel Shinobi Nine demons of Mamoru / Ametist Studio Pixel side scrolling action games are a dime a dozen these days, so in order to stand out from the crowd you really have to have a good presentation. Pixel Shinobi, at least judging by the trailer, seems to have fluid animations, fast pace gameplay, and a ton of challenge. Pixel Shinobi promises to combine stealth, platforming, and RPG mechanics in a game where you play as a ninja to stop a demonically possessed military leader on a … [Read more...] about [Not Massive] It’s Time For More Interesting Steam Games
