The story of Star Citizen is getting more and more in-depth every time we turn around. More ships and systems are being added, more informati0n about the story is being released and it seems like every day we’re learning more about what to expect when one of the most highly anticipated games in memory finally drops in 2014.
So what can we expect from the economy in the Star Citizen universe?
One of the most popular play modes in ARMA 2 was Wasteland. In this game mode, players are cast into a post-apocalyptic world (the kind of apocalypse is unclear) where they vie for resources and territory as survivors. There are three teams: OpFor, BluFor and Independent and the teams kill each other (and sometimes themselves) any time they come into contact with one another.
Now it’s available for ARMA 3.
If you’re a gamer, and I bet you are because you’re looking at a gaming site right now, you probably watch a lot of gaming videos on YouTube like I do. There’s lots of reasons to fire up YouTube, like when a new game is announced and I need to view some trailers and research its gameplay or I realy just chill out and watch some people get trolled. Unfortunately, the service has been running really slow lately so I went out on the web in search of something that would sort me out and didn’t cost a penny.
Fortunately, I found just the thing and now YouTube videos are streaming up fast – very fast – maybe faster than I’ve ever seen them so I figured I’d share with all you fine people out there in internetland!
Let’s face it; Mechanical keyboards give us something we all crave – the tactile sensation and amazing key-smashing sound of something that was built to take abuse… and lots of it. The problem is that lately it is nigh impossible to find a decent mechanical keyboard – one that won’t fall apart the first time you beat the shit out of it in a fit of nerd rage after someone kills you, teabags you and then spams “BOOM, HEADSHOT BITCH!!!” into the chat – for less than the price of a used car. If a keyboard can’t handle the occasional hammer fist or head butt, it’s really not worth any price you pay for it, but even if it can, it’s not worth it if you have to hock your woman’s engagement ring to buy it.
Enter the Monoprice mechanical gaming keyboard; The same type of keyboard you’d buy at many places for upwards of $200 but with a modest price tag of $66.
In my time as a gamer I’ve had the opportunity to use a lot of gaming mice. Logitech, Microsoft, Razer, Mionix: these are just a few names I’ve had my hands on.
During E3, the folks at Bloody dropped one of their gaming mice on me and asked me to do a no-nonsense review. Of course, I accepted and after using that mouse for the last two weeks, I’m ready to render my verdict, with a nice video of one of the main advertised features – recoil suppression.
Over the last several months we have talked a lot about the price of video games. Some devs and publishers are clearly trying to push prices down while others are fine with the status quo. Somehow though, we seem to have some developers who are more than happy to drive the price of video games up. I really can’t help but wonder how they get away with it.
That’s right kiddies, it’s time for the official beta of ARMA III, the award winning mil-sim, to hit the world like a nuclear bomb. Ever since the original ARMA came out back in 2006, they have been redefining the way people look at strategic shooters.
Throughout the years, Minecraft has continued to evolve from a simple mine, build, mine, build, mine, get bored, quit game to a fully featured and bountiful game of build-y goodness. This is especially with the advent of a number of mods that are available to expand the capabilities of the game and give out all sorts of other stuff we can do. One of those things is the ability to do magic and build all kinds of magical devices. If that’s what you’re interested in, read on!
Squadron 42/Star Citizen is almost certainly the most anticipated release of all time in the space sim category. Chris Roberts (Wing Commander, now with Cloud Imperium Games) is almost certainly the best known and most skilled creator of space games in the history of space games. This year at E3, I had the opportunity to sit down with him and have a talk about the upcoming title and the future of the most massive video game undertaking he’s ever attempted. There’s lots of great stuff here about Star Citizen so check out the video!
So you think you can rock out on first-person shooters, huh? You think you have what it takes to line up and take that shot while you keep the enemy from killing you first? Want to slap people in the head when they ask if you “COD on your Xbox”? Great. Then there’s a First Person Shooter you need to have a look at; it’s called ARMA III. Read the rest of this article…
