Hey, did you hear guys? That next game in the greatest stealth action series ever created is coming out. No, not that one. I'm talking THE greatest one, if not (perhaps), the very first: Thief.
Now, I love Thief alot, and the discover that the fourth entry is *finally* getting somewhere in its development fills me with glee. Indeed, if someone were to officially announce Fallout 4 or Fable 4 within the next while, I would probably have an aneurysm borne of sheer joy.
It is thus far unclear whether it will be a reboot of the series (NO GODDAMMIT EIDOS MONTREAL DEUS EX NEEDS THE REBOOT, NOT THIEF), or going to be the next part of the story after the events of Deadly Shadows (given he has his mechanical eye, this does support the idea of it bei…Read more >
--SPOILER ALERT--SPOILER ALERT--EVERY SENIOR CITIZEN NEEDS SPOILER ALERT--
Okay, so now that it's reading week for my university, I decided now shall be the time I finally get round to playing DS3. I'm going to be going for every achievement you can get for the 360 sans those which require Gold Membership, because seriously fuck Visceral and fuck Microsoft for those and all the other times they've screwed me over (BUT WHY DO I STILL LOVE THEM SO MUCH?). Anyways, this does mean I'll be doing Hardcore mode so... Yay... You know, with its "One Death and you're screwed" system.
WHY DO YOU KEEP HURTING ME SO BAD VISCERAL?
I've got it all planned out, I'll be doing a standard run to get most of the trophies (except those for completing P…Read more >
Hey everyone, Haegemonia here; I'm sure that you're all super jazzed about DS3 coming up (note to self: Find less gay way of expressing excitement).
These days, apart from being pimp and waiting for my damn copy of Deus Ex: HR to arrive in the mail, I've been cogitating on Dead Space 3's Co-Op and Co-Op in general when it comes to games. Now, first off, I've already made my thoughts known when it comes to multiplayer-only achievements such that I'll simply say if there is no way to get some of DS3's achievements unless I get a Gold Membership (and, yes, I did look over the achievement list, so I know there are Co-Op achievements) then that is complete bollocks and will leave me more than a little pissed with the creators of the game (seriou…Read more >
Hey guys, BIG update today! For the past two or three years, Gorvar and I have been periodically working on a review of Dead Space: Downfall; today, I'm pleased to say that we've finally completed the first third of it and are posting it for your viewing pleasure. Now, thankfully, we don't expect future installments should take even a thirtieth as long as one, so you can expect more (relatively) soon. So, without further ado:
GORVAR AND HAEGEMONIA'S DEAD SPACE: DOWNFALL REVIEW, PART ONE OF THREE
Haegemonia: And we begin this grand story with this unfortunate woman who not only seems to be so mentally deficient /hung over that she forgot how recordings work, but also has a solid mass of bone comprising what should be her teeth.
Haegemonia: To …

SPOILERS FOR MASS EFFECT 3 AHEAD
Just finished Mass Effect 3; the verdict? Most disappointing game I've ever played.
First off, when I say it was disappointing, I don't mean it wasn't fun; quite frankly, it wasn't until the final quarter of the game I began feeling anything less than adoration for the game. Once I realized how quickly the game was steamrolling through the storyline and the huge number of terrible "fetch" quests, I felt somewhat disappointed. However, it wasn't until the finishing romance scene that I felt the game gearing up to an anticlimax.
My hope shot back up with the opening scenes and first section of the battle for Earth; it was tremendous quite frankly. However, it quickly went downhill from there, ending with that fu…Read more >
