STAR TREK: MONDAY

 

 “We’re out here to explore. To make contact with other life forms. To establish peaceful relations, but not to interfere. And absolutely not to destroy. And yet look at what we have just done.” –  Picard. As you can probably tell from the above picture, this week – and perhaps longer – I’ll be dedicating Monday Memes, to all things Star Trek. And where better to start then with one of the Federations greatest: Captain Jean-Luc Picard? (You may now start your Kirk vs Picard fan-boy arguments.) Now during my research into Picard memes I discovered that there are – generally accepted – no fewer then SEVEN different types of Picard meme. So, it goes without saying, we are going […]

CRYSIS VS DEAD SPACE.

 

 Now you may be asking yourself “Why did he choose to do a  Crysis vs Dead Space article?” Why? Because they both have a third installment out. (Very simple. I know.) Not to mention the fact that they have both been recently released, and are both on the “must have” list of many gamers. The question is: Which one do you buy? CRYSIS: Since 2007, the Crysis games have gone from a relatively large front-line soldier of the games industry, to an incredibly large and constantly evolving storm trooper of the games industry. With it’s impressive graphics, game play, story, combat system, and ability to grow, Crysis has become a byword for most gamers.  But what is it about Crysis that […]

DEAD SPACE 3: UNLIMITED WEAPONS!

 

 “Let’s get one thing straight, Clarke: we came to this frozen shithole to stop the Markers…” – Carver. Those words may ring true, but as we all know, it takes more than a couple of brave men to stop an alien menace. It takes a couple of brave men with an overwhelming amount of firepower! And for those of us who have played the previous Dead Space titles, we know what sorts of necro-slaying tools should be at our disposal. HOWEVER! For Dead Space 3, things have changed. Gone are the days of simply adding “power nodes” to improve your weapons. Now you get to create new weapons from scratch! THAT’S RIGHT! From SCRATCH! Think of it: combining all your […]

ALIENS: COLONIAL MARINES

 

 Some of us have been waiting a long time for THIS day to arrive. Others… have only just found out. But for those of us who have been patiently waiting for close to 11 years, our long wait is over. And the controversy has begun. NOW, Tuesday is usually regarded as trailer day. However, I (your friend and humble narrator) will break the mould slightly as today we focus on not only the trailer, but a review as well; for we cannot sum up this monster of the gaming world with a few short paragraphs. HISTORY: Alien: Colonial Marines (ACM) was originally set to release on PlayStation in 2001. However it was cancelled. THEN in 2006, it was picked up […]

DOOM 4

 

 “I’m gonna sing the “Doom Song” now. DOOM, DOOM, DOOM, DOOM, DOOM, DOOM…” How many times are we going to have to drive the forces of Hell back? We kicked them out TWICE in Doom 3, and R.O.E. We beat them in Doom and Doom 2. And no matter what WE do, they just creep back into our lives; like insects sneaking through the cracks in the floor. And now it looks as if we are going to have to do the whole job again! Though ID Software has not officially announced the return of DOOM. It has been hinted at by some of their staff, though the release date is unconfirmed, the return of Doom. DOOM 4: “Hell On […]

DOOM 3 VS QUAKE 4: Throwdowns of Destruction!

 

 “Move it! Haul ass or die!” -Bidwell. This is my first official Thursday Throwdown, and in sticking with the weeks theme, I’ve decided to do a DOOM 3 VS QUAKE 4 article. Now that I have split the room – and I do look forward to receiving your fan based hate mail. I shall attempt to take you though this UNBIASED look at two of ID Software’s best selling titles. Be they aliens or demons, they will all die the same. ID Software first released DOOM in 1993, followed by Quake in 1996. Both games featured YOU playing as a soldier fighting the good fight, in an FPS environment, against an invading enemy force. However, were DOOM has stuck with […]

DOOM: 5 Weapons of Divine War.

 

     “Right, you’re the control, and if that fails, I’m the damage.” – Jack Campbell. Those were words were first heard at the beginning of DOOM 3, and I immediately took them to heart. Now I – once again – decided to write a short article. But, as YOU know, my plans never work out. So instead of the 200 word “happy weapons of Doom” article I was planning, I have instead found myself doing a short/over the top write up, regarding my 5 favourite weapons of DOOM!                          1: Double Barrel Shotgun. NOW here’s a classic peace/piece maker. Although she was not introduced until DOOM 2, she became the staple weapon for most DOOM fans. After she wasn’t included […]

DOOM 3: BFG Edition.

 

 “Amazing things will happen here soon, you just wait.” – Dr. Malcolm Betruger.     I’ve been looking forward to doing this review/trailer/general prattle, for the past few weeks. And now finally we can begin. DOOM 3: BFG Edition, has finally arrived. (Well it’s been here a while. But this review took a while to edit.) [youtube id=”h8TnP-mgDoI” width=”450″ height=”260″] DOOM 3: BFG EDITION. “All units, this is Sergeant Kelly. We are under attack by an unknown enemy force. Fall back to Marine HQ to regroup.

DOOM 3 BFMeme.

 

  “I’ve gotta get out of this place.” – M.Caseon; a scared scientist. So… I had an idea. A great idea. A fantastic idea. THEN, I went to the Mall and purchased DOOM 3: BFG Edition. So for those of you who were waiting for my fantastic idea; you’ll have to check back in a few weeks. As for the rest of you: Welcome to the start of a WEEK’S worth of Doom 3 related posts. Why have I chosen to dedicate a week to Doom 3? Well… Why HELL not? (I’m smart. I made a reference to “The Game” there.) Doom, for those not in the know, was one of the first true FPS (First Person Shooters) games. Doom was […]

AMONG THE SLEEP

 

 Today, we are going to discuss an upcoming title. A title that, if you are like me, already has you salivating like a lion at an ‘all you can eat’ pygmy buffet. And if the teaser trailers are anything to go by, then this is going to be one of the scariest, heart stopping, mind blowing, trouser wetting and controversial video-game titles of all time. How so? Well, let’s break this sandwich down. [youtube id=”YWDQN_X5b-M” width=”450″ height=”260″] THE GAME: Proper Scary: Over the past few years we have been given a number of good scares by the games industry. But in 99% on those occasions, we have overcome our fears, raised our rifles, and made the ‘scary monster’ go away… […]
