Ever since the success of consoles like the Xbox and Xbox 360 with their action games like Halo and Gears of War I have noticed something changing to the Gaming Industry pretty much everywhere in the way games are advertised and play now a days. It kind of disturbs me and that change is that a lot of stuff is mostly singling on action and killing people. There is pretty much no room for slower or strategic games in this marketplace any more it seems. That saddens me. (more…)

Ever since I was young I have been more fascinated by the villains in films, books, and TV series and this may make me a psychopath but I liked them more. They were always more complicated then the heroes who all seemed to be these pretty boys who could do no wrong, the villains on the other hand went down a dark path and now they want to kill people and you wonder what happened to them to make them see that as the right thing to do. Also a lot of times they usually say the truth even though the heroes don’t want to hear about it. (more…)

So a new beta or demo(there pretty much the same now a days to be quite honest) and this time its a little bit different this is an online City Building game in the vein of Sim City but you can interact with other people by trading with them or just chatting with them. The name of the Game is Cities XL and I’ll be posting my thoughts here.

The link to the demo so you can try it out is here:

Studios Killed The Indie Star

I recently watched Moon this week which is a great little indie film directed by Duncan Jones and the main actor in it is Sam Rockwell. I’m not talking about the film in this article but I do have to say I recommend it whole heartedly. Anyway to watch this film I had to go to a 9:00 clock showing which is the only thing they had over 4 days or something like that. It actually surprised me that my cinema got it at all, usually with these films you have to go to London to watch them. And this got me thinking in how Indie Films aren’t really been catered to anyone without going through many hoops, and that’s just the ones that go to cinema. There are many that interest me that don’t actually get into the cinema or on DVD and it gets tough not to go to any more disrespectful means to watch them even if I can watch them there. (more…)

So a a new MMO beta test has come out for Fileplanet account holders, this new MMO is called Fallen Earth and I’m here to give my initial thoughts on the game from just playing the tutorial. I may write some more as i go along playing the game or I may stop playing it and these are my only thoughts. But before I do that you will want some information on the game and maybe a link to this Beta.

Fallen Earth is a post-apocolyptic MMO shooter, and if that sounds like a weird mash up well it is. It is set in the future or another planet, its not entirily clear which where the Human race has been ravaged by something and are living in a post apocolyptic wasteland. Maybe. Since I’ve only played a bit and none of that I ever saw the surface world so I’m only¬†guessing here that there might be a wasteland for all I know you can’t go there and you can only explore undeground.

If you want to try the beta yourself go here.
