Games

  • Dawn of War: Dark Crusade 81% – Same Formula, slightly faster, Necrons are as fun as they look
  • Guild Wars Factions75% – Too fast and too hard. Exhausting quickly.
  • Guild Wars Nightfall91% – Holds your hand through it with a better story than Prophecies, but is very hard. I wouldn’t recommend someone just jumping into the games with Nightfall.
  • Eldars Scrolls 4: Oblivion 97% – The near perfect RPG. If only it was a MMO.
  • FEAR 94% – Almost as good as Half Life 2, but too easy. Could be scarier, but it made me jump.

Demo’s and Trials

  • FEAR: Extraction Point 82% – good bast with the minigun, but does not feel like FEAR and isn’t as scary. Not by Monolith.
  • Eve Online69% – Everything looks so amazing… wow… I wish I knew how to do that… tutorial is hours long and far too much information.
  • Warhammer: Mark of Chaos – Graphically Impressive like DoW was. Not as large or as tactical as Total War but it is fun, and nice to have the same army at beginning and end of a match.

Review: Company of Heroes

Damn oppression, pushing us down and telling us what to do… Nazi… Teachers… wait, no I need to keep on topic… damn homework. Company of Heroes is the latest title to be fed out by Relic, the makers of classics Dawn of War and Homeworld – and like both those titles, this game is gorgeous and more unique than any other title out there. Relic are masters. (more…)

Review: DEFCON

Launches detected. Alerts sounding. Nuclear missiles are falling around you. Tokyo hit, 12 million dead. Calcutta hit. 5.4 million dead. Hong Kong hit. 6.9 million dead. Is this the apocalypse? No! It’s DEFCON! The latest gem to be plucked from the brains of Introversion. The developer responsible for under-appreciated classics such as Darwinia and Uplink. Once you get over the thermonuclear genocide your inflicting on your opponent, it’s a game that becomes quite addictive due to its large number of strategic possibility’s available from such a restrictive amount of units.

Lets talk about life…

Sorry for no updates, but we haven’t heard much, and we’ve been busy with school. (And I’ve been busy with Guild Wars, almost 250 hours total).

Only new game I have played lately that was interesting is Dark Messiah of Might and Magic (demo). Its a really awsome and gritty melee combat game, made even more so since its First Person instead of 3rd like most sword games. I really love the combat and I might buy it… nah probably not but I recommend it to anyone with more money than me.

You have been playing 130 hours over the past 25 days.

Yep, this is an indepth review. I went on holiday, and thought about the game almost every few minutes. Once I got home I tried to write the review, but got sucked back in. Dammit.

Half Life 2: Episode 1

My first thoughts as I played: omg, wtf, woah… Valve has done it, slightly strange in places but they’ve done it. I came into this thinking it would be rubbish based on all of their teasers and pictures they’ve release, well everyone ignore them cause I think the head of marketing should be taken out and shot…
