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.

Left 4 Dead: Demo Review

Posted by Shane

This is what you see when you join the game.

WOW!

I just played the demo, and while the first time around I was stupid enough to leave alone my teammates, I learned the next time that this is a game that you can not go out on your own. The demo only includes two levels of one map and with the 20+ maps that are coming out with the game in less than a week, I can expect more fun!

Right now the game has several plaguing problems. Most noticibly with the server matching problems and people trying to play together as a group. Also if you are on a windows machine, you can not run a dedicated server and play the game at the same time.

Attached is the only thing that I can get for now. It is a poster of the “map” as you join it. If you think about the modding possibilities with this game, they are endless. There are plenty of screenshots and video of the game in action on the biggest fan website including the official trailer for the game. The offical review of this game will come out once the game is released. This is just a preview. expect a much fuller review then!

TF2 Heavy Update, A+

Posted by Shane

As I talked about earlier in my postings, the latest class to be “updated’ was the heavy class. Over the past week or so they been updating the heavy update site each day (minus the weekend) for the 6 different major changes they made to the game.

This heavy update also makes it almost not fun to play spy since everyone will play heavy for the first few days, but in the mean time as spy I will be able to stab a whole bunch of heavies. Below is what they released and my review on everything.

Star Trek Online

Posted by Shane

I am not a big fan of Massive Multi-player Online (MMO) games minus the one I want to develop for Dangerous Waters, but the Star Trek Online MMO is one that I been following since 2002. Since then it has gone from being developed to the company who won the license becoming dissolved to develop and soon release.

Spy Awards

Posted by Shane

On a related note to Team Fortress 2 gaming, I checked out my stats today on the server I play on, and I noticed I had gotten every spy award for the day (August 2, 2008) plus points captured. Below is a screen shot of the same link above.
