‘Wizardry’ And ‘Mortal Kombat’ To Release Digitally: “Hello, Old Friends!” And “Why Are You Still Here?”
Today we got a couple of interesting press releases. One of them got me really excited because it takes me back to younger days when gaming was on the rise and new developers were pulling out all the stops in attempts to constantly one-up each other. The other was really interesting because it gave me the same sense of morbid fixation one gets whilst watching crash tests at the end of a night of binge drinking and serial fornication.
Gosh, I love those crash test videos!
I just have to get this out of my system, before I explode, because it’s something that’s been driving me crazy for a very long time.
YouTube… seriously. Pull your heads out of your collective assholes and do something constructive for a change instead of sitting around like a bunch of idiots, laughing at videos of Hitler finding out his schnitzel got eaten by the dog.
This morning we sat down and watched the Microsoft reveal for the new Xbox, which they’re calling Xbox One. We even took the opportunity to live-blog about it as the heads of a few different companies took the stage and made announcements about their upcoming titles.
While some of the stuff they talked about was interesting, for me, the most interesting part of the whole thing was when Activision talked about the new direction for the Call of Duty franchise.
That’s right. We’ve been running a vanilla Minecraft server for quite some time, but we had some issues with it because Kelly didn’t update it (N, slap him please. (Done! -N (Ow! -Kels))), but we have the updates installed and it is accepting connections again. For a while, we’ve looked a number of mods and thought about the possibility of installing a mod or two, but there’s one in particular that we got a huge push for last night so we decided to go ahead and install it. So now, we’ve opened up a second Minecraft shard and we’re bringing people on.
Being the rare instance where a storied genre favorite is also a tentpole summer release, lots of people around the FEZ Palace have an opinion about about J.J. Abrams’ new Star Trek Into Darkness, itself a sequel to his much-anticipated Star Trek reboot four years ago. So, what do we think? Read our reviews below, then stick around for a new N5 Show on Monday where we go into spoiler territory!
So… there’s going to be an international DOTA 2 tournament, right? And we know that DOTA 2 is pretty popular right? Well, apparently it is because the prize money that’s being offered up for this tournament is in the kind of quantity that nearly made me soil my boxer-briefs when I read about it.
We’re talking, like, multinational corporate CEO kinda cash. Yep, it’s like that.
Metro: Last Light is the sequel to Metro 2033 and a title we got to have a look at last year at E3. We got our hands on a review copy of the game about a week ago and we’ve a chance to spend quite a bit of time with it on multiple platforms, specifically Xbox 360 and PC. N and Kelly have already started a playthrough of the game in the 360 and did a FEZ PLAY video for it. Meanwhile I was working on the PC review and now it’s time to tell you how this one stacks up.
It’s been all over the internet for the past few days and I’m sure it comes as no surprise to anyone that WoW is still hemorrhaging subscribers. We all know that they’re now down to right around the 8 million mark and we know they will continue to lose subscribers over time. The game is, in effect, spiraling downward.
Just about every major gaming publication on the face of the planet has reported these facts. What they haven’t reported – for the most part – is why.
This list is growing faster than a weed in…well, my front yard; and weeds grow fast there! We’ve been following the Oculus Rift for a while now (and we will own several of them when they are released) and we’re getting more and more excited to see the ever expanding list of games which are gaining support for the upcoming virtual reality headset.
As seen over on the official developer forums for the Oculus Rift, the mega hit FPS Half-Life 2 has now joined the list of games which will be the best thing since sliced bread.
Well, it’s been a long time coming and Jodi Arias had this coming, for sure! The soon-to-be-sentenced (hopefully to the needle) Arias claimed self-defense in the slaying of her ex, Travis Alexander, then commented later that, “no jury will convict me. You can mark my words on that one.”
Guess what, dummy! The jury convicted you! BAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
