Torn - Free Online RPG - Join a world of Crime

I found some screenshots of the online RPG Torn. I remember as a kid playing "Drug Wars" on my TI-85 calculator. It was a basic game all text based, things like "What do you want to do?" "Go here", "Mug old people", "Go sell drugs", "Go buy drugs", etc. While I'm not saying it was a good kids game it was entertaining, a widely circulated game at my school and most importantly it was fun. There was no way to play with other people so when I saw this game Torn it took me back to being in school pretending to do work and playing this game but this seems to pick up where "Drug Wars" left off. Now test your skills against other players.
Oh and it's free so what do you have to loose?

Replacing Netflix Update

Alright, so last time I compared a few services. I still haven't found any other new services to replace Netflix but I did have a refreshing thing happen while using my free trial with Hulu.

Deap Space 2 Review - PS3

Dead Space 2 
Dead Space 2 really pulls you in making you feel like you are experiencing the horror first hand and definitely has plenty of excitement.

Dead Space 2 is one of the best horror survival games I've played in a long time. It reminds me of where the Resident Evil series started out before they started pumping out worthless games.

Supremacy MMA, New Trailer and Screenshots

 Supremacy MMA
Supremacy MMA is an upcoming PS3 and Xbox 360 fight game. It seems rather obvious they are going for the gritty look here but to me it just seems that they aren't quite giving it the graphic polish it needs and leaning too hard on the gritty look to pull it through.

How do you think it looks?

Red Dead Redemption Review - PS3

Red Dead Redemption 

Red Dead Redemption is a role playing shooter based in the Wild West with a little more emphasis on the RPG than the Shooter. The overall story of Red Dead Redemption seems to be, you play as John Marston, former outlaw turned bounty hunter. You are sent out to the wild west to catch or kill your old partner, Bill Williamson, in order to save your family. While playing you get to mold who John Marston is morally with the choices you make.

Street Fighter X Tekken Trailer, GamesCom

For me this trailer of Street Fighter X Tekken was disappointing but maybe the game will still do well. I don't think that the graphics are good enough for Street Fighter or Tekken alone, let alone a collaboration of the two games. The idea I like, the outcome however doesn't seem to be live up to my expectation.

But you tell me what you think.

Devil May Cry Screenshots and Trailer

Well I am a fan of the show Devil May Cry, the game seems to be a typical hack and slasher but I'm sure it will get some following from the show. Below are some screenshots then at the bottom is the GamesCom trailer.

Replacing Netflix's Streaming Media

Due to Netflix price increases, two in less than a year, there has been quite a bit of talk about tens of thousands of Netflix subscribers leaving but the real question is where will they/you go? There are a few options but which if any are best for you?

I have had Netflix for years and have been streaming to my PS3 for quite a while but I have to admit my loyalty to Netflix was gone after the second price increase. My first reaction was to cancel all together, with the first price increase I lowered the number of DVDs I received at a time, now with the second price increase I have already dropped all DVDs and moved that over to Blockbuster.

To the real point of this, Streaming media providers.

Driver San Franciso Demo

Right so I just got done playing Driver: San Francisco, well the demo on PS3. I figured I wouldn't be all that into it. I had already seen the preview at E3 and sure the shifting vehicles is new but is it really new and different enough to create a totally new feeling in a driving game? Well I think so, the actual drive of the vehicles felt a little heavy to me kind of like everything above 50 to 60 mph was under steering but the shifting vehicle plus the missions or at least the 3 you can play with the demo are a lot of fun.
  • Prove It - Prove your gift to your partner, jump a car carrier, smash into the cops then run and catch a tow.
  • Team Colours - Shift between the two cars on your team plus all the other cars on the street to win 1st and 2nd places in the race
  • Escapist - Escape the police a few times with your passenger

This game is on my list of upcoming games to get, to see more about the game you can visit the driver page.

Dead Island - All fight together trailer

If you haven't heard of Dead Island or seen the "All Fight Together" trailer you should watch this video. While zombie games are constantly coming out, I have to say the pure blood, guts and violence of this game have me interested. While the game also seems to have great graphics going for it, I think the only real question will be the gameplay. Can it keep your attention while you are not fighting zombies?

The game takes place on the Island of Banoi, the basic story line seems to be that you are a guest on holiday at the resort when out of no where zombies are everywhere and you have to work with 3 other people to get off the island alive. The game features 4 player co-op, weapon customization, open world play, RPG side of the game to develop your character. Dead Island will be available on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC early September 2011.
