Blizzard is keeping me in the loop. I have the lowdown on the closed beta for Starcraft II Legacy of the Void. It will start March 31st. Check out the video and the official website also.
Memory’s of days past have been rekindled in this kickstarter project. My friend Scott and I spend many days playing the Gold Box series of games. TSI made up of members of the former SSI are back with a kickstarter of “Seven Dragon Saga”
I have already backed this project. I would suggest you do also. You may have never play this type of game before. You will also be able to move the characters you make in Seven Dragons Saga to the next game in the series. This is often ignored in modern titles. It’s a necessary feature to get from a low level to an epic high level.
Turn based is also an often over looked design that is IMHO one of the best.
The next single player adventure for Hearthstone has been announced. I have two thousand gold saved up by playing Hearthstone daily quests so I am set for the release.
VR is coming of age as Project Morpheus has announced a release date of first quarter 2016. This is big news as there are only a few contenders for the VR space that are affordable. Playstation 4 may be the first to market with a finished product.
Not sure what to make of a Pre alpha trailer as almost anything can change. If I had to critique this one I say it looks a little too easy to kill with a bow. I play a lot of Mount and Blade Warband. While it’s unfair to compare games I think it’s great when a guy has ten arrows sticking out of his shield and is still fighting. Different styles of gameplay make the gaming world go round.
I fondly remember playing Wolfenstein between computer jobs back in the day. The good old days. Wolfenstein is back so the new computer people can play between computer jobs.
Harold has launched on steam. Harold is a side scrolling racing game where you control the track in order to gain an advantage over the other racers. Interesting concept and it’s fun to play.
There is a new RTS out called Grey Goo! I will have a review after I play it some more. Check out the launch trailer.
Only watch this if you don’t want to be surprised when the movie comes out in theaters. I went to several movies over the years not knowing what to expect and was blown away. Alien, Indiana Jones, Evil dead 2, and Die hard. All fantastic movies and I had no clue what they what was going to happen because I never watched a trailer.
