Diablo: Rise of The Hunter

Today we speak to French-Canadian actor, Jean Drolet about his role in the new Diablo fan film “Diablo: Rise of The Hunter“. How did you get involved in Diablo: Rise of The Hunter? Well two, two years ago I was invited to a private screening by a young friend of mine Carlos Cobezas. He was the film Director and Stephanie Van Rijn Vincent (Valla) was the lead actress. A year passed liking each other’s postings until I’ve been invited to a scenario first reading of DIABO: ‘’Rise of The Hunter’’. There I met Amanda Lynn Petrin (Halissa) and Luc Godbout that became DIABLO’s Film Director. We repeat one scene or two to pin point meaning sand will and then there […]

Hit by the Rebels – Fallout New Vegas

When I say “post-apocalyptic future”, what image comes to mind? I bet it looks like a desert with a whole lot of sand and maybe the ruins of city structures. One or two people might even think of city regions taken back by vines and lush vegetation, but most will see the beach without a shore line stretching as far as the eye can see. Now let me ask you to picture Nevada and Las Vegas. If you’ve seen enough Hollywood depictions, you’ll know it’s little more than the perfect place to film a movie set in a post-apocalyptic future. So much so, that if there was an earth shattering event or nuclear fallout, I’m not sure if anything would […]

Pokemon Go: The Digital Addiction

 

 Is there an AA for gaming? I can’t seem to find it and I think I need to speak to someone about my addiction.  Since you’re here, maybe I’ll talk to you. You see, I have a problem. It’s a little problem. Okay I definitely have a problem of debatable size. It started on a normal day, a day like every other. It was a Friday, I think. I get home, drop my work stuff in the not-so-neat corner and proceed to greet my loving girlfriend. I get a vague murmur back instead of the usual eager hug and kiss, which leads me to investigate. Upon entry into my kitchen I see her hunched over her phone, swearing as she […]

The Bacon Battalion

What do you get when you combine RPG’S, cameras, bacon and YouTube? Perhaps one of the sexiest shows ever made. Welcome to the Bacon Battalion. Would you mind introducing yourself to the readers? I’m Guy Sclanders and have been Roleplaying since 1991.  That’s before Pokemon Go, Smartphones,social media and Harry Potter fans. Now Tabletop Roleplaying, like Dungeons and Dragons, has left the… ahem… Dungeon and is flourishing on Youtube. That;s where me and the team create How To be a great GM, How to be a great Player and system review videos and of course it where our weekly Role playing game is hosted. The channel is there to help geeks get more out of their game (role-playing). Basically it’s […]

Rise of the Tomb Raider

 

 I remember the first time I saw a Tomb Raider game, the year escapes me but it had to be around 1998, making me five years old. My mother had received the very first one’s collector’s edition on PC from my father because it featured Egypt and that was a theme that had her going bananas. I still have it today since she struggled too much and gave it to me, the box says “Tomb Raider: Unfinished Business”, and I have that game to thank for honing my gaming skills, even if I never did finish it either ironically. I knew back then when I crawled its badly pixelated hallways, caverns and corridors that it was something special that would […]

Brutal Legend

 

 There was a steam sale, And I wasn’t broke this time round, Among the clutter and crap, A game I wanted I found, It featured metal music, And an actor world renowned, Once I started playing, My inner metal head awoke at the sound. The Brutal Legend of Eddy Riggs is a tale as old as 2008 when this title released as a console exclusive, published by EA. In recent years it has been ported to PC, finally allowing me to embrace my eternal wish of becoming an axe swinging, guitar riff playing, hot-rod riding metal head that was sent by forces unknown so safe the world of metal. You play Eddy Riggs, voiced and modelled after a muscular Jack […]

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate

 

 Don’t you just hate it when the history books only tell half the tale? I mean who knows what we weren’t told. Maybe Hitler was fighting aliens disguised as people from a certain race, maybe Ghangus Khan was trying to build an army to fight the mole people, maybe the gangsters of 18th century England were trying to stop a race of futuristic pre-cursor people from enslaving us by using our fear of an exploding sun. Chew on that for a moment. Luckily there is an organization that still tells it like it is, and we can thank Ubisoft for their accurate account of history in their Assassin’s Creed series of video games. The latest of their incredibly factual entries […]

When Metal Gear Solid’s AI plays by the same rules

Kojima’s Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is a great game for a lot of different reasons, but when the AI of the enemy was affected by the same conditions and rules I was during general gameplay without it being scripted or a cut-scene, that was when I realised just how incredible this title really was. You might wonder what I am on about, so let me tell you a story. Admittedly a recorded video would have worked better but I didn’t have recording software running when this happened so I decided to recollect the events in short story format. I did dramatize it slightly for affect but that just makes the read better. It all started while Snake […]

StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm

 

 I adore the Zerg. I always have. I always will. Whenever I have played a multiplayer game of Starcraft, the Zerg were my legion of choice. There is nothing as enjoyable as watching the screen fill up with hundreds of Zerglings, and seeing your enemies disappearing under a living blanket of death. Obviously you know that means I was drooling like a loon the moment I got my hands on StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm. Singleplayer: *Spoiler Alert* For those that have seen the ending of  StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, you know that Kerrigan has once again bcome human… or close enough. She is now in a containment/research facility under the watchful eye of Jim Raynor and friends. […]
