Elder Scrolls V skyrim announced! =D

This is one of the two games where I screamed like a little girl when I found out it was coming out. The other being Portal 2. Bethesda announced at the Spike Video games awards TES:V skyrim. For those of you who played Oblivion, remember bruma? Well Bruma is around Skyrim. It’s home of the Nords! It’s disappointing that we don’t get go back to cyrodiil, but a new Elder scrolls game is epic! The best part is it comes out roughly around November. They set a date for 11/11/11 but we all know how games can be delayed.

Need 4 Speed Hot Pursuit III (N4SHP3)…. Long

Hot Pursuit's Windows and United States cover art.

Developer: EA Canada

Publisher: Electronic Arts

Series: Need For Speed

Platforms:Microsoft Windows

Play Station

Nintendo

Microsoft Xbox

Genre:Racing

Rating:ESRB-E

With police pursuits reintegrated into the game, Hot Pursuit’s gameplay now consists of two categories. The first encompasses standard racing, as it has been in its predecessors, The Need for Speed and Need for Speed II, in which the player is allowed to race against one (including split-screen races) or seven other racers in normal circuit racers, knockouts, or tournaments (which allow the player to unlock bonus vehicles and a bonus track). The second category is dubbed the “Hot Pursuit,” where police pursuits are included in races; the mode allows the player to select a standard sports car to race against a single opponent in a police-scattered track, and in the PC version only select a police variation of a sports car to pursue and stop all six racers before they complete their race. Completing both Hot Pursuit challenges in the PC version on every track of the game unlocks additional police sports cars.

Overall the Game has Cool Cars, Hot Tracks and i would give it an 8.5 out of 10


Why don’t my Pictures work? D:<

Well why don’t they? A ton of images on the older posts seem to be broken by something…. I’m not sure if its the theme or what. I don’t really know. But yeah. I guess your going to have to live without pictures on the old post. Mostly because I’m to lazy to fix it myself.. I should get a IT guy for this site…..

Why Minecraft has so much promise

This is my attempt to make a post on the site today. Just because I need to. And uh… Yeah. This was copied from my ModDB blog.

I’m sure you’ve heard of Minecraft. Possibly one of the best indie games, if not the best, of this generation. I have put off Minecraft because it got boring for me. It was repetitive and you had to work really hard to find the good stuff. So I started using cheats and stuff. Then I just stopped playing.
But then the Halloween Update was announced. I did not play minecraft  for the first time in a while until yesterday(October 30th,2010). And I will say, This could be one of the most important updates in the history of Minecraft.
If your asking why then I shall tell you. While Notch has released secret updates every Friday and sometime Saturdays, there small and not majorly important. With the Halloween update many things were added. Possibly the biggest edition was The Hell Realm, Also known as The Slip and The Nether(official title) The Nether itself added two new mobs, The Zombie Pigmen and the Ghast. It added three(I read somewhere nine but I’m not sure as I only found two so far) new blocks, Which is Hellstone(Bloodstone?)
Lightstone(Australium), And slow sand(Mud). I’m sure there’s others that I have not found.
This new update also added a Watch for telling time in the caves when mining. It added Biomes(This will be hard to find if you have a big world made before the game as you will have to travel to the areas were it has not been randomly generated) It has added New Textures for Grass, tree leaves, and wood(Although the wood could just look different since the grass and tree leaves textures changed). It added a use for the fishing rod(Fishing. Duh!). Jack-o-lanterns and pumpkins to!
So this is all important because it shows us Notch can and will get things done. Notch has mentioned added Bats, Goblins and goblin Villages, Possibly Giants(He has a video on his you tube channel where he’s testing giant zombie things) and possibly Dragons! Or some other form of air travel. Lets hope it be dragons. Sea monster to! I’m sure Notch has some grand ideas in his head he’s not even sure he can make. But my main point in bold is Minecraft is still in Alpha. If Notch has come this far, what will happen in beta and full release?
I would explain what Minecraft is but since I’m to lazy, here’s a video!

Fallout 3, Broken steel and Operation Anchorage(Fallout 3 DLC) review

So I got fallout 3 Game of the year edition, Beat it, did broken steel and Operation Anchorage. I’m taking a in game break from quest for a bit so I won’t have the Point look out and Mother ship Zeta reviews up until this weekend or early next week. So on with the reviews!

Summery

Fallout 3. The long awaited squeal to Fallout and Fallout 2. With the fallout right bought out by Bethesda, Fallout 3 would get a big time make over.

The year is 2277, 200 years after the bombs fell in the Fallout universe. You play as Jame’s kid, who was ‘born’ in the vault. As your father leaves one day you go out to look for him in the waste. The waste are not friendly to many.¬† As you progress through out the game you learn many things about the main story line and the 100’s of others. The water is poisoned with radiation. So drinking it a lot could get you killed. You can also chose to listen to GNR or the enclave radio stations. The enclave is Propaganda from the remains of the U.S. Government while GNR is a pro B.O.S. station that talks about your actions and plays 1950’s music. Which is super fun to listen to while blowing a super mutants head off. That was a long summery so onto the Story review!

Story

This story was great. There’s so much to do and how you do it, You can play fallout 3 for so long it will take you a few months with all the DLC to do a second play through. As for the main story line its self, I would say around 6 to 7 hours if you do it all at once. This story has everything. It has Good guys, bad guys, and people who are just there. I give the story a 10 out of 10.

Game play

The Game play is super. There’s a Level system and skills and perks system. Lets say you want to hack a terminal. Oh no! Your level science level isn’t high enough. But you only need 3 more XP till the next level. Well, Go kill a ghoul or something then Level up, Upgrade the skill, Chose a perk that’s helps the skill, and Wallah! You can hack it! They also have V.A.T.S.(Vault tech. Assisted. Targeting. System) Were you pause real time combat, target a body part, then shot it in a epic short movie. V.A.T.S. really do help. So remember, Blast them away with V.A.T.S.!

Overall

Overall this game is great, The story is good and game play is nothing short of Epicness.

I give this a 10/10

Broken steel
Summery

Broken steel takes two weeks after the events of Fallout 3. Join the Brother hood of steel as they clean up the Enclave remains and kill em all with a giant robot! Increase your level to 30 with new perks to!

Story

The story is a lot shorter then Fallout 3. Like a hour or so if you don’t die or get lost. Although it’s short Broken steel gets you into the B.O.S for sure if getting into Lyons pride in the main game wasn’t enough. So you can say your a B.O.S. member for sure! Other then that, I can’t say much without ruining it for you.

Operation: Anchorage

Summery

Help the Brother hood of steel outcast get some armor by competing a simulation in which you fight in the most important event in the fallout universe next to the great war.

Story

The story follows a squad leader of a strike team who is given some of the hardest tasks in the operation. And I can’t say more other then it’s in Alaska since I don’t want to ruin it.

Game play

Over all game play is the same but, since you can’t search dead bodys or pick up many weapons your forced to conserve ammo and try more then ever not to get shot. You also only chose from a few packs of gear so pick carefully.

Overall for both addons.

Over all I give Broken steel a 9 out of 10 and Operation: Anchorage a 8 out of 10.

There both good so pick them up if you don’t have them.

Well that’s all for know -From the basement of Alex_N



Does a long break count?

2. Get a chat box.

3. Translate this site.

4. New themes.

5. Get some people.

Well besides that, I really don’t have much so bai.
