Bugs: Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer


So there are the bugs that can be fixed client-side. What about the ones that happen server-side and you have no idea what the shit just happened? As far as I know, no one on the team named their characters Ichabod, Crane, or any combination/variant of the above.

Impressions: Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer


BE FOREWARNED: Minor spoilers ahead.

So after about a week or so of play (in terms of total hours spent…), I come away with some hopeful impressions of Mass Effect 3’s multiplayer segment. A little background recap: the new multiplayer segment in Mass Effect 3 finds four players of  varying race and class battling against unfavorable enemy odds in waves. These small-scale actions take place parallel to Commander Shepard’s main campaign against the Reapers and can be safely ignored in the final game. For those of you who do partake in the multiplayer segment, it adds to a Galactic Readiness level present in the Campaign mode. How that Readiness level plays into the campaign is not yet clear, but you can imagine it presents a pretty sweet incentive to keep playing.

Review: Magicka


File:Magicka box.jpg

Title: Magicka

Genre: Action/Adventure, Fantasy, Parody

Release Date: January 25, 2011 (Worldwide)

System: PC

Format: DVD, Steam Digital Distro.

Magicka is one of those games that just comes out of nowhere and swiftly kicks you in the balls for being a tool in believing the standards of AAA games. It is a fantasy game, but a fantasy game in as much as Monty Python and the Holy Grail was a period piece about religion and chivalry. It is equal parts nostalgia and irreverence with a surprising amount of innovation thrown in for such a simplistic-seeming game. The guys over at indie group Arrowhead Studios hit an itch, an itch that has not been scratched for gamers for some time, and though it admittedly took three months of patches to get the damn thing playing decently, people who are blessed enough to be discovering it just now will be experiencing the game as it was always meant to be.

And they will love it.

Steam – Alien Swarm


I’m back! For this post at least.

Anyway, Valve released a game called Alien Swarm for free, along with its source code, available for download off Steam.
Here’s a trailer, it looks like Borderlands gameplay, but with an alien twist. Sounds good to me!
