Batman Arkham Asylum

Posted by Shane

The game as released yesterday and I haven’t really stopped play it yet. Minus the fact that I did have to go to bed last night (around 3am). The game is totally rad. Great graphics, dialog, cut scenes, and control and the story line is just great!

Kevin Conroy the voice actor who voiced Batman in Batman: The Animated Series and Mark Hamil (Does he ever get tired of being the Joker?) plays the Joker respectively again for this ground breaking game.

Currently it is $49.99 via Steam, however, I think it’s quite worth it since there are three levels of difficulty and also lots of ways you can beat the game. The game currently holds a 92 on Metacritic and that what is was before the game was officially released.

World of Goo

Posted by Shane

A neat 2D game called World of Goo was released on Steam recently. While my gaming time has gone down, I was surfing the Steam news to see what was going on. I saw something called World of Goo. So I watched the trailier and everything. I checked out to see if there was a demo on their website, and there was so I download it. Now after playing the demo I am hooked!

I play a game called Dangerous Waters, which is a naval simulation game. You can command a Perry-class frigate, Seawolf-class submarine, or a Russian Akula class submarine. The main object of the game (if you are playing another person) is to hunt them down before they do the same to you.

There is one problem with the game. One of them details with the number of people that play the game. There are not many — even with the game being released on Steam. Another problem with the game is that it hasn’t been updated or even touched by theĀ  makers of the game for years and for now it doesn’t even look like there might be any new versions out there.

I bring this up because there is a huge potential to make a new version of this game in a Massive Multiplayer Online (MMO) game and nothing is being down about it. Wouldn’t this be cool to be in a “sub” or a “ship” and sail around the globe with friends looking for enemy patrols. I been thinking about creating such a game, but I have yet to find a engine that could support under-water rendering. I have tons of ideas on how to do such a game and it be really neat to find people who share my ideas with and write the game together.

One of the games I been playing a lot of is a game by Valve called Team Fortress 2 (Check out their blog here.) This game is one of the most well thought out games and updated game out there. Since Valve uses their Steam software to keep the game up-to-date it also allows them to update the game play itself to everyone who plays it keeping the game fresh.
