Which gaming atmosphere appeals most to you? Ultra Hi-Tech, Fantasy & Magical Lore, Horror & Death, or present-day environments? Do you like to escape your everyday life or picture yourself charging through it with some serious weaponry?
Last time we had a moderately intellectual topic, which must have burned out a few brain cells. Consequently, we're going to have a more light-hearted and imaginative topic this week:
Which gaming atmosphere appeals most to you? Ultra Hi-Tech, Fantasy & Magical Lore, Horror & Death, or present day environments? Do you like to escape your everyday life or picture yourself charging through it with some serious weaponry?
We value all our entries and we love spontaneous and slightly insane thought above many things, see what you can do!
Thats right! Those great gals over at Geek Girl's Guide 2 Games just launched a fresh review of our beloved Blood2. If you have been deciding if you should plunk down the ten bucks to buy Blood2 and want a honest to goodness current review you have to check this one out! Here is a little tidbit from the review:
If there is a point to this review, it would be don't believe everything you hear. I'm glad my Amigo had a copy of Blood 2 in his closet that needed a new home. If not for serendipity, I would have missed out on a pretty cool game. It's by no mean a perfect game, but sometimes we get hung up on the Next big thing. If you run across a Copy of Blood 2 in some bargain bin, I would recommend you grab it. It's a good deal more entertaining then a bunch of the new games I have played.
Once you have played Blood 2, the next time some message board type post "BLOOD 2 SUCKS", you can smile that smug smile and think "What a wanker".
There's a new Blood add-on in town, and this one's a doozy. I just got through playing a decent chunk of it and I can honestly say that if you're hungerin' for some more Blood 1 (and let's be honest here- that should be all of us) then this is your ticket to enjoyment ;) My advice: Download this beast and let Bloatoid, the creator, know by email what you thought. This add-on has pretty much arrived out of the middle of nowhere, and with an exceptional level of quality, I've been completely taken by surprise. Hopefully you will be too.
Another red-hot release of GameSpy 3D. Read on, valiant readers:
TRIBES 2 support is now in the latest, greatest GameSpy 3D! Version 2.53 is
available to you, the registered user, before we make it available to the
world. As they say, membership has its privileges.
One thing we hope you'll notice: the absolutely BLAZING speed of GameSpy 3D
vs. the TRIBES 2 in-game browser. It is a full 5x faster (8 seconds vs. 40
seconds) on my cable modem. Using SmartSpy to find just the siege servers
zooms in under 2 seconds!
