Dismiss The Anger; Control the Rage!

I have been playing online games for a number of years and have had my share rage induced moments. Usually I’m the one raging at the Assault in Battlefield 3 to quit running into the same building or at the Healer to spam heals harder. This has lead to the following tips to keep myself calm that I thought I’d share with the community. Continue reading

The Champion’s Playbook

While talking with Ranhert the other day, he mentioned that he had been listening to ESPN Radio. At that time, the hosts were discussing the NFL, as the divisional round of the playoffs are this weekend (it is kind of a big deal). Ranhert fancies himself a football enthusiast and started to draw comparisons between professional League of Legends and professional football. Continue reading

Crimson Alliance – Review

Every year, I make the mistake of raising my hand for a video game that I know nearly nothing about. Someone will give me the smallest hint as to what kind of game it is, and I think to myself: “Eh, I can play this, no problem.” This year it was Crimson Alliance, a pseudo free to play dungeon crawler that has a multiplayer function. Since I didn’t have anyone to play with, I went at it solo – big mistake. Continue reading

Orcs Must Die! – Review

Before we get started I want you to take nice big whiff of the air. Do you smell that? That’s the smell of fall, and all of the great games that come with it. For those of you who are done paying full retail price for a disc, you’re going to love what I’m about to tell you. For a quarter the price of X-Men Destiny, Orcs Must Die injects your Xbox with all the power of a full retail release. Continue reading

Gears of War 3 – Review

I was introduced to the Gears series shortly after I picked up my first Xbox 360. Before I played it, I was told it was going to be a gritty, bloody experience. I’d be inclined to agree with that assessment. Shortly after I finished the first game, Gears 2 came out and I put days worth of time into Horde, multi-player, and the co-op campaign. That being said, I figured that I’d be super excited to get back into the Gears world and mow down some Locust. Continue reading

Serious Sam: Double D – Review

Mommy’s Best Games is starting to gain some serious steam in the developer world. They gave us Weapon of Choice, Shoot1Up and Explosionade, all of which have been released to the XBL Indie scene. With each subsequent game, MBG seems to be gaining momentum as if they were drawing power from each successful launch. Tapping into their energy reserve, they’re pulled out the most chaotic side scrolling shooter that I’ve played and tossed it straight to Steam. Continue reading

The Avenger Controller – Review

I read A LOT of gaming news, so I see A LOT of “enhancement” products. I’m intrigued by a lot of them because when I first started playing 2D fighting games, I purchased an arcade stick. While not exactly an “enhancement”, it did level up my game play considerably. Since that moment, I’ve been looking at products that I can use while playing other type of games. Continue reading
