Battlefield Bad Company 2 Multiplayer

So after embracing myself in the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 realm for a while its an all new experience its like an all new world of BC2 this is where the game shines. I dare say this is the only place it shines, but I promised my therapist I would think happy thoughts so lets just say it shines brighter here, much much brighter. As you login to your EA account to play the multiplayer, BC2 has adopted what practically every other game seems to have adopted as of late the inclusion of a leveling system uniquely you start from level 0 instead of level 1. The player has 4 different game types to chose from: Conquest where you take control and hold up to 4 areas on the map while dwindling down the resistance, Rush the defense or destruction of M-Coms located across the map, Squad R...

Battlefield: Bad Company 2

Well I finally got my fangs into Battlefield: Bad Company 2 after all the hype and the fact about all my Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 companions basically bailed on me and left me to the comfort of random people.  So after being loaned a Bad Company 2  account to test out the game I decided to get my own copy but that was solely due to the multiplayer aspect. Disappointing campaign and Stubborn Controls BC2's campaign left a bad taste in my mouth I was some what disappointed with the overall execution of its campaign mode I wasn't totally surprised though because first person shooters (FPS) are not usually known to have good story modes just something to get you along the way and not just mindless shooting, one is usually given just enough to let you know why you are shooting and bl...

Mass Effect 2

Well I completed Mass Effect 2 and I must say I found it rather entertaining especially compared to its predecessor, when Mass Effect was released it caused a lot of waves in the ocean of the gaming world at the time from what I can remember was for its strong story, and an almost "give you total control" command system over your team and the interactivity and decisions system. I'm a sucker for a good storyline so when I saw Mass Effect on sale I jumped right on it only to be overall disappointed. I found the Command System of your team mates bugged at times one has to repeat the same command too often for the AI to actually execute what you would like or they may get stuck in a previous command and even for an "Action RPG" I found the main story to be rather short, while the remainder of ...

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

For those who love the FPS (First Person Shooter) genre but have become tired of the played out World War history and alien invasion based content and want an epic adventure that is based in reality and utilizes what actual exists, in terms of tactics and equipment currently available on the battlefields of the world, well my friends Activision is here for you once again. First they brought you the first installment of modern warfare in "Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare" which many was pleased with, myself being one of them "Call Of Duty 4" was one of the few "FPS" which consisted of a rich and for many a fulfilling storyline with gameplay to back it and "Modern Warfare 2" is no different I dare say its better it took everything from the first and made it better the only thing that I woul...

Heroes of Newerth Beta hands-on

A lot has changed since the dawn of the gaming genre know as "Real-Time Strategy" I remember the days of Command & Conquer, Age Of Empires, Empire Earth etc..... but I specifically remember spending hours upon hours on StarCraft now that was my "Real-Time Strategy" of choice. RTS + RPG hybrids As time passed slowly the "RTS (Real-Time Strategy)" genre developed and evolved and the build your army to destroy your enemies army and obliterate his/her base of command started to change, it started focusing more on the development of one character and the use of a smaller army WarCraft III lead this arena well concentrating on the building and use of main characters like Arthas and labeled them as "Heroes" the "RTS" started to slowly mix characteristics of "RPGs (Role Playing Games)" whe...
