Hey there guys, just a small post about a new idea I’ve been working on. Basically, I just decided to start up a new ongoing series here called ‘Throughout the ages’. The idea is to talk about one particular developer, writer, director, … Talk about their history, major achievements and such. For example, if I would be writing an article for this about Blizzard, the creators of World of Warcraft, I’d probably explain their history a bit and their major achievements like Warcraft, Starcraft and such, the many changes and evolutions the company went through. I’m not quite sure yet how I’ll do it, but you can expect one of these by the end of the week.
Hey there guys, as the title says this article is about superheroes, and more in detail about why we like them. It struck me a couple of weeks ago that almost the whole world likes superheroes and I really had no idea why. Maybe it’s the tight latex suits (Watchmen anyone?), the superpowers, the fact they do things we can’t? Keep on reading and you’ll find out!
Hey there guys and welcome to article numéro 2! In this article I’ll name and discuss the merits of gaming, some of which are very well known, but others might not be.
First of all, why this topic? Well, what prompted me to write an article about this was the bombing in the Russian airport a few weeks ago. Immediately after the fact fingers were being pointed towards the gaming industry for promoting violent behaviour. I’m sure you all remember one of the first missions of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 where you were an undercover operative in a terrorist organisation. Basically, you pull out your machine gun and start mowing down people. Now I can see why this would prompt some reactions as this scene is fairly shocking but to say that violent games is a cause of terrorism or rape (not counting RapePlay) is going a bit too far.
In short, this article is to show that gaming has a truckload of benefits and advantages. So what do you think? Did I spike your interest? If so, keep on reading. If not, what the hell are you doing on this blog?!
Hey there guys. As promised, here is the first real content post of this blog. If you worked out the ‘hint’ gave in the previous post you should already know what this will be about. And if you didn’t … well, you either didn’t read the post or failed to work out the hint, in which case, you fail! Continue reading “Hands-on – DC Universe Online”
