Not Just Another Shooter


To help you focus Adderall XR

It seems like every year we get another generic first person war shooter providing an experience that we’ve all played before. Well The Darkness 2 provides something new and different. Whether it’s the comic book style aesthetic, quad-wielding gameplay, or the immersive story-telling, The Darkness 2 offers a refreshing unique experience that is hard to come by nowadays.

Rome 2 Total War has finally been unveiled, a game myself and Xyilion have been dreaming about for years, is finally coming to a pc near you…. in 2013 lol

Being a PC Gamer subscriber I thought it was only right that you guys should read their exclusive feature on the latest in the Total War franchise.

Full credit to

The original Rome is one of the most enduringly popular games in the Total War series. It did away with sprites, rendering warfare in full 3D. It added depth and flexibility to the campaign game, coupled with one of the most varied and evocative eras in the history of human conflict. It even formed the basis of a historical TV show.

A sequel to Rome is, according to Total War lead designer James Russell, the most frequent request that Creative Assembly receive – and a few weeks ago, I visited the developer to see that sequel for myself. I was shown a ten minute battle demonstration, running live and in-engine but with pre-scripted troop movements and a planned outcome. What I saw was really exciting, but it’s worth being clear about the fact that this was a first look at a game that is early in development, with a lot that the developers aren’t willing to show. The impression I got was that there’s much still to be nailed down behind the scenes and as such a lot of the specific detail that Total War fans will be looking far was hard to come by. They were however willing to talk about the direction and themes of Rome 2’s design, and I was given exclusive interviews with the people behind the game. Here’s everything there is to know so far.

On today’s show we announce our new show formats, and kick it off by discussing what have been our highlights of this current generation. Enjoy!

NBA 2K12 is a game that has dared to be the best. It has come close. I’ve put enough hours into this game that I finally feel confident in writing a review to do it justice. To find out how close this is to perfection check out the rest of the review below.

“How did they do that?!”

inFamous 2 is an incredibly fun game, you have the powers of an electricity wielding superhero and it is awesome being Cole. From the platforming to the combat, the gameplay mechanics are great. The gameplay flows together well. You can easily go from gliding across rooftops to firing electricity bolts within seconds and even throwing cars towards enemies is easy and intuative. It all feels very polished and satisfying.
