Guild Wars 2 INCOMING!

ERMAGAWD – It’s been quite a long time since I’ve been posting! My apologies everyone. I know my blog has been left in the dark for a few months now. That doesn’t mean I quit gaming because that remained constant! 😉 But I’m ready to breathe life back into this baby. Awww yeah! Let’s start off by engaging into the ‘Who’s IN for 1’ for Guild Wars 2. Anyone say AYEEE? Because I’m certainly going to be jumping right in when Guild Wars 2 goes live. In fact, I have already pre-ordered a digital copy in full. I believe it came attached with the 3 day head start.

If you’re definitely set on purchasing Guild Wars 2, I got a massive deal for you! You can pre-order a digital copy discounted at $48 from Gamefly. I stumbled upon this deal through browsing Slickdeals.net yesterday. This is probably one of the best deals out there for Guild Wars 2. Here’s a BONUS – it also comes with the 3 day head start code (according the sources on the Slickdeals thread). Don’t let this great deal expire on you! Redeem it today and be ready for August 25th! If anyone is interested in collaborating for some FUCKING awesome TEAM WORK, feel free to message me with your username and server on the day of launch and perhaps we shall play. I’m already set on playing a Sylvarian Necromancer. Thanks to many character creations and beta weekends, I am set on what race and class I want. 🙂

What better way to jump start a slumber period of blogging than with a special giveaway? That’s right – NZXT Corp. is doing their weekly Humpday Giveaway.

Far Cry 3 Gameplay Trailer, Violently Brilliant

What’s better than drugs, graphic violence, and more violence? Far Cry 3 of course! It’s about time we can look forward to the next installment of the Far Cry series. That’s right, Far Cry 3 is currently underway as we can anticipate the release of this upcoming game sometime this year. As a sign of proof that Far Cry 3 is in the works, Ubisoft has released the first gameplay trailer that will cater to anyone’s Vicarious taste for violence and brutal punishment. After all, it’s no fun unless there’s blood shed. We’re not going to stop until the blood finishes flowing. Get ready to be a sneaky son-of-a-bitch with the nickname McStabby (or at least that’s what I would call myself) in Far Cry 3. Enjoy the trailer guys!

Darkness Prevails on PC

Death is all around us. First it began on the PS3, who lucked out and received exclusivity over Demon Souls. Next was the Xbox 360 successfully getting Dark Souls on their platform (F*K yeah!). Now, PC Gamers may experience the same luck with this awesome series. Rumor has it that Dark Souls will be receiving a port onto the PC. But that has yet to become official. Once Namco makes this game possible on PC, nobody would be left in the dark with bitterness. It’s a win win situation for anyone who’s been wanting to play Dark Souls on multiple platforms. This PC port may be released sometime this year.

The Walking Dead a Comic, TV Series, and Now a Video Game?

Did anyone catch the season finale of The Walking Dead last Sunday? Jesus Christ, that episode was AWESOME. I’m already looking forward to Fall. But before I continue, please put emphasis on this note:

******** SPOILER ALERT ********* do not proceed if you are currently watching The Walking Dead and aren’t caught up to Season 2’s finale. You have been warned!

I really love the transformation of both Rick and Andrea. Andrea decided to step up the plate by manning up and grabbing a pistol. Rick, has definitely walked the path to become a badass. After last night’s episode it is say to say he’s fed up with the entire group’s bullshit as he gave his delightful ‘rictatorship’ speech. What’s even more fascinating is that they have discovered a new location – the prison cells which will be the home and base for these survivors in Season 3. I’m so glad they featured a new character who will be the ultimate badass – Michonne. Michonne was the Samurai sword wielding shrouded figure with her 2 zombie minions chained to her. What a true badass right? I can’t wait until Season 3. That said, with a comic already and TV series, it’s safe to say we saw this coming from a mile away.

Telltale has acquired a new project that will turn our favorite comic/TV show into a cel shading video game. That’s right – they debuted the teaser trailer last week. Fortunately this week we can finally catch the first trailer ever. Will Telltale be able to tell the same epic apocalyptic story as the comic and TV show? Or will it be a huge disappoint to The Walking Dead series? We won’t know until later down the road in 2012. For the moment, please sit back and enjoy this trailer.

It’s Official – Diablo III Gets a Release Date

That’s right everyone, the launch date for Diablo III is finally official and not a rumor. You guys can now pre-order your copies of either the standard or Collector’s Edition. Anyone planning on upgrading their entire rig in lieu of D3’s launch? I know I was considering it at first, but ever since news got out that D3 is releasing premature without any PVP arena content it made me change my mind. I guess we’ll all be magic finding for no purpose. It would be simply to dress our characters to look pretty! I’m not quite excited as I nearly would have been months ago. I really think they should have just waited for the game to release with all its content that Blizzard promised to begin with. I mean it’s the least they can do after so many delays. Really, IMO, Diablo 2.5 comes out on May 15 and Diablo 3 will be released months later on when that patch feels like rolling out with the PVP content. If I DO decide to buy this game, I will be playing a Sorceress. What class would you be playing?

In the back of my mind, I’m still banking on Torchlight 2 at this point. Sometimes you just have to be real sensitive and make the right choice based on limited funds for what games truly deserve the full retail price. If you guys know what I mean 🙂 Nonetheless, enjoy my friends! D3 is coming out of the inferno to a PC near you on May 15.

Kingdom of Amalur: Reckoning Review

WOW, I never would have thought such a low profile game would be so awesome. After downloading the demo with only one incentive – to unlock an armor set in Mass Effect 3; I’d have to say this game has a lot of potential. What really impressed me about this game is how responsive the combat system is. There’s no delay and your character’s moves are very on point. On top of that, you have the freedom to decide whatever spec or hybrid build you want to pursue. This is similar to the talent tree in Skyrim where you can be an assassin with magic or a mage wielding a blade with a bow. To sum it all up, this game plays like a single player World of Warcraft (which really blows me away!). This game is definitely worth considering and I highly recommend it for anyone looking to expand their RPG playlist. I haven’t bought the retail copy yet. Still waiting for it to go on sale in the $40-20 range. I’ve been spending too much money lately on games and getting the new iPad 😦 If you’re not convinced by me, you guys can check out GameTrailer’s review.
