Halo 5 Warzone Firefight – First Impressions of the Beta

I’ve managed to sneak in a few games of Warzone Firefight, the  new co-operative mode added into Halo 5 and revival of the Firefight game mode from ODST originally, and Reach most recently. The mode is currently in a Beta state, with only one of the Warzone maps playable, but it has the entire five rounds for you to play with up to 8 people. Between servers being overwhelmed and Xbox Live having some issues, it was tough to find a game, but after 4 games I’m already excited to see the mode come out of Beta later this year.

Weekend Flashback Review – Nazi Zombie Army

Originally posted March 20, 2013.

Zombie games are all over the place, as well as zombie co-op games. Nazi Zombie Army brought little new to the party, but was at least an interesting spin integrating the mechancis of Sniper Elite to the fold. Slow-motion gunshots, sniper focused weaponry and traps made the game a little more interesting than just pure zombie killing sprees. Hell, it must’ve been good, because there’s three of them now.

Weekend Flashback Review – StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm

StarCraft 2 released it’s third and final expansion during the end of 2015, and I’ve yet to pick it up and play. What I did play a lot of was Heart of the Swarm, even getting into Platinum in the League Multiplayer game, able to beat out some opponents in the Diamond League. It was great fun when it finally clicked, and I still try to follow StarCraft tournaments to this day. It was the first game that I really enjoyed watching as an E-Sport and it mostly stemmed from this review.

Are Shooters Stagnant?

Gamers like shooting things in the face. Army men, aliens, criminals, hell anything that breathes. It’s satisfying to vent your frustrations by emptying countless numbers of bullets into something that’s trying to kill you right back. There’s been changes from these games over the years. Even looking through the history of the grand-daddy of them all, Wolfenstein, you can see a vast difference. Not to mention over the shoulder camera angles, authentic shooters like Battlefield, realistic shooters like ArmA and even shooters with RPG elements like the recently released The Division. But what’s next? Is there any innovation left in something so simple as see man, shoot gun?

The Bizarre Feeling of the Steam Community Market

A lot of people know the insanity of prices of Skins for Counter Strike: Global Offensive. For paying a couple of pounds you get a chance at a unique skin for your gun to make it look a bit prettier when you’re playing. The rarest of these, Knife varients and paintjobs, can go for upwards of £300. It can get pretty insane.  (more…)

Living the Farming Life with Stardew Valley

It’s been at least a decade, possibly more, since I last played a Harvest Moon game that my sister owned. I can’t remember the exact game it was, nor the console it was on, but I recall it being pretty fun for what it was. I struggled with it, and only played it now and then, but it was enjoyable. I then started hearing about Stardew Valley, a “Harvest Moon Clone” that was on PC. It wasn’t expensive, so I dived in to see what it was like. Eight hours of play time later, and I had to jump off so my girlfriend could have a shot for herself.
