World War Z: One Rule … Survive

Sunday, January 12th, 2014 | Author:

WWZiconI take a deep breath and shove the large stack of boxes forward and peer around the corner silently. I take a moment to make sure my clip is topped off, and that I have my crowbar ready before making the run.

I slide silently past the cardboard tower, taking care not to tip it over and cause alarm, and start softly tiptoeing down the never-been-this-loud-to-walk-on pavement. It’s a wonder that the echoing sounds of a tin can rattling down the alley for one reason or another have the exact same acoustical tones as the echoing sounds of demise.

Pick up your pistols, crowbars, and duct tape some magazines to your arms survivors… It’s World War Z. Please also note this game is not over the top gory, but you’re beating back the undead with baseball bats and ejecting more brass than a 1920s swing band so it is intended for a mature audience only.

Magic 2014: Dueling With Cards

Sunday, December 29th, 2013 | Author:

Magic-2014-Campaign-LogoIn one of my earlier game reviews, I reviewed a game called Shadow Era, which was a great twist and a pretty solid game. I’m still playing it and now that its first expansion has come out, there’s a lot more cards, strategy and challenges to be had.

Alas, I have to say, it barely holds a candle to the trading card game giant, Magic the Gathering. MTG has brought out a few games, but today we’re going to take a good look at Magic 2014. So grab your dice and get ready to rumble planeswalkers, it’s time to take out your iPad and make some magic. Article Continues…

League of Legends In My Backpack? Yes, Please!

Saturday, December 7th, 2013 | Author:

solstice iconAlright, I’m pretty sure you’ve all figured out from my previous article that I am a die hard League of Legends player and take the game very seriously (not that DOTA2 garbage. Ick no, bury that under 12 layers of steel at the bottom of the ocean please).

That being said, I am indeed a fan of the MOBA genre in general and to my glorious surprise, there is a decent MOBA for the iPad (and iPhone).

Solstice Arena brands itself as the worlds first “SPEED MOBA”, a game that goes by much quicker than desktop games in the genre.

Which is quite true. It’s smaller maps and faster exchanges expedite the game play quite a bit. The fact that players are mobile may help too, as I’m seeing way too many people dive for objectives and get their faces wrecked. Article Continues…
