Female protagonists.

Can game devs ever get this right ?At the moment, there is a trend on gaming news sites surrounding female protagonists, the lack of them or the 'poor execution' being the main talking points.The media can be poisonous and detrimental to the industry when it comes to things like this, they need these talking points, so they will do anything they can to fuel the fire; after all, what do they talk about when there is no actual news. Its happened a few times in the past F2P games,…

Mass Effect discussion

If any of you know anything about me, you'd know about my love for Mass Effect... It is one of my all time favorite RPG series... In fact I say I love it more than Skyrim or Oblivion... And as you know, when someone brings it up in a discussion, me and others tend to... "Derail" the original intent of the discussion... As such, I have created a new discussion here in hopes to discuss with people my favorite series. It can be anything you want... Art tips on drawing characters or races, lore…

Games You Miss

I was thinking about all of the great games I have played in my lifetime and there are a lot I wish I could play again, not with the knowledge I have of them but from a new and fresh perspective. Here are some of the games I miss playing... Fallout 3 - I miss the bleak and hopeless atmosphere, exploring the wastelands and discovering little pockets of life KoToR - A single player Star Wars game with RPG elements? Why did they ever stop producing these games?!! SOCOM - SOCOM 2 was one of my…

Dota 2

I will start this off by saying I am awful at Dota. I hold no illusions over how bad I am. Despite this I thoroughly enjoy it, why? I'm not sure actually.Are there any tolerant veteran players on the blog? Or is there anybody wanting to try but a little bit too intimidated to ? Basically I'm looking for people to play the game with. If we get enough for a team that would be great, if we get enough for a couple of teams, even better !

Let's talk business!

The video game business, as much as it pains me to say it is just that, a business. Recently, more than ever, the business models that publishers employ are under scrutiny. With the emergent F2P/freemium games, that will play a huge part in the next-gen consoles and the DLC packages; that double edged blade, many of us are frustrated with some approaches that bigger publishers are taking (I'm looking at you EA). Basically this is a general question/discussion, which applies to us all as…

Assassin's Creed Series Discussion

With Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag now released, I thought it would be great to discuss this great series with fellow blog members, as there seems to be many other fans of the series here! Feel free to talk about anything AC related here, even the comics, or the multiplayer(especially the multiplayer, AC3 had a great MP story that many missed!). Remember, nothing is true, everything is permitted.

Assassin"s Creed: Rogue

So, it seems the 360 is gonna get one last AC game before AC Unity hits. From what I've seen of the trailer, it appears an Assassin, probably around the time of our dear Edward Kenway at the earliest, has gone rouge from the Order, and shoots an injured member clothed in the white robes, as evidenced by the trailer. Now, so far, I don't know why or how this guy breaks off and goes renegade, he doesn't appear to be working with the Templars, as he says he is following "His own…

Anyone play any of the "Mount & Blade", "Total War" or "Civilization" series?

I've yet to play any of the M&B series. Its high on my list, though, as the combat system is highly rated with great looking mounted combat and the ability to recruit and field small armies. I'm a vet of the Total War series: Rome 1, Medieval 2, Empire, Shogun and soon to play Rome 2. Its the only series I know of with RTS where you can field armies of 2K+ soldiers. Great series. I've played Civ 4 & 5, not as much as the TW series but plenty. The combat system isn't anywhere near what the TW…
