  • A Visitorís Guide to Fallout 4ís Post-Apocalyptic Boston

    A Visitorís Guide to Fallout 4ís Post-Apocalyptic Boston


    Nuclear disasters are different wherever they strike, shaped by the particular landscape unfortunate enough to suffer their indiscriminate wrath. Picture the wooden buildings of Hiroshima completely eradicated, a single brick-and-concrete dome surviving. Imagine the eerie Red Forest of Chernobyl, a reminder of how quickly mankind can render a tranquil, verdant landscape uninhabitable for centuries.



    Thatís why the setting of a Fallout game is as important as anything else Ė and why the prospect of an irradiated Boston is so exciting. Like the Capital Wasteland and New Vegas before it, Fallout 4ís Boston delivers a similarly novel experience. After all, this is a city that traces its origins to nearly 150 years before the Declaration of Independence....

  • The Division Game Preview

    The Division Game Preview

    The Division



    Ubisoft has announced that the finalized release date for the multiplayer focused shooter is to be March 8, 2016. It will be available on the following platforms: Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC.

    The beta for The Division will be released December 1, 2015, on Xbox One while the beta will release sometime in the beginning of 2016 for Playstation and PC gamers. You can guarantee yourself a spot in the beta by pre-ordering the game from The Division's website >lBeta Sign-upsl< Copies of The Division can also be bought on the Uplay store, Amazon, Gamestop, Target, Walmart, and Bestbuy.


    The Division is set in a post apocalyptic New York City. On a regular Black Friday in New York City devastating pandemic weapons are used and one by one services begin to fail. Within a few days society begins to fail apart due to lack of food and water. At this point "The Division", an autonomous unit of tactical agents, is activated. These units have been trained to operate independently in order to save society from mass chaos.

    It details how we live in a complex world and because we are so advanced we become vulnerable. "We've created a house of cards: remove just one, and everything falls apart". It interweaves third person shooting and RPG elements as well as cooperative play.


    Key Features:

    Take back New York:
    Welcome to the next generation experience in a persistent and dynamic open world environment that is built from the ground up for co-op and where exploration and player progression are essential. Teaming up with other Division agents, your mission is to restore order, investigate the source of the virus, and then take back New York.

    A Living, Breathing World:
    Enter a universe where time of the day and weather conditions impacts your gaming experience. Use the environment for strategic advantage to dominate fights and ambush your enemies. Utilize your gas mask to provide protection from the virus, and upgrade it to enter the most highly contaminated areas.

    Urban Jungle:
    New York City is being overrun by hostile groups trying to take advantage of the crisis. Beware of the thugs that roam in packs through the city, preying on the weak. Fight against The Cleaners, who wear hazmat suits and wield flamethrowers, who are set on cleaning New York City from the virus by burning everything and everyone. Engage with The Rikers, a gang of convicts that escaped Riker's Island when the chaos hit, and who are ravaging the city and vying for it's control.

    Gear Up and Customize Your Agent:
    Harness state of the art technology, both networked and prototype, as a member of The Division. Customize your character and your backpack, your lifeline in mid-crisis New York. Communicate with other agents at all times with your smart watch. Loot fallen enemies and customize and level up your weapons, gear, and skills.

    Cutting Edge Tech:
    Choose and upgrade your skills and synergize with your teammates to increase your chances of winning in combat. Switch your skills such as the seeker mine that finds your enemy and explodes; the turret that triggers high octane efficient diversion; or the pulse that gives you a tactical read on tour environment. Use the ECHO tech, a data collection tool that renders moments frozen in time, to learn valuable information about your immediate environment, find hidden loot, and help uncover the truth about the pandemic.

    Seamless Multiplayer: The Dark Zone:
    Enter The Dark Zone, a walled off quarantined zone in the middle of Manhattan where the most valuable loot was left behind when the military evacuated. It's the most dangerous area of the game where fear, betrayal, and tensions are high. Team up with other players to take down your enemies and extract legendary loot via helicopter. It's your choice to collaborate with other agents, or attack them and steal their loot.

    Snowdrop Engine:
    Powered by the fully next-gen Snowdrop Engine. Tom Clancy's The Division sets a new bar in video game realism and open world rendering. Experience a chaotic and devastated New York like you've never seen before.

    Rainbow Six Siege


    One Of The Most Tense Tactical Shooters -
    Rainbow Six Siege is a methodical, tactical shooter. Siege makes sure each and every member of the team is held to account Ė from the moment they choose their loadout, to long after they kick the proverbial bucket.

    Siegeís cornerstone multiplayer mode, also called Siege was first revealed to the world at E3 2014, and the general premise of it hasnít changed much between then and my new hands-on session with the game. Itís an asymmetrical affair where groups of five wage war over a hostage in a succession of cramped, interior maps. One side is tasked with extracting the hostage, the other with keeping the invaders at bay until the timer runs out. Either team can also win the round by eliminating the

  • Dark Souls 2, Prepare to die and die and die.

    Dark Souls 2, Prepare to die and die and die.

    So Dark Souls 2 released on March 11th of this year and learning from my previous Dark Souls experience I figured I would be in a world of hurt for the long run. After sinking nearly 100 hours into the game across two characters, the majority being my sword and board user I felt I had a good understanding of the game to be able to talk about it briefly. If you haven't heard anything about the Souls games there are now three: Demon's Souls, and it's spiritual successor Dark Souls and now Dark Souls 2, all are known for being difficult to the extent I have heard of people...

    Halo- More Than Just a Game

    We all know the time old classic tale, a protagonist facing impossible odds and a great enemy, no hope for success, and hope is dimming everywhere. In walks Master Chief Petty Officer, Spartan-117. This ultimate beast was taken as a child and raised with his fellow Spartans to be the ultimate fighting machine against human rebels, the Covenant and eventually the Flood. But i don't have to tell you the classic tale of this Spartan war hero, his exploits have been known since the release of the original X-Box. Master Chief is a video game character, a memorable one to say the least and an effective target for the male macho-ness in gaming across the ...

    Dead Island Riptide Review

    Dead Island Riptide

    Game Specifics:
    Developer: Techland
    Publisher: Deep Silver
    Platforms: Microsoft Windows, PC, PS3, Xbox 360
    Co-op: Up to 4 players
    Expect to pay: $20-$30 depending on where you get it.

    Game Overview: The game picks up right where Dead Island left off, with the four original players (as well as a new playable fifth, which we will discuss later) finding themselves shipwrecked on the island of Palanai. Riptide doesn't make a great first impression though. The prologue is boring and uninteresting, serving as a clumsy attempt to bridge the story to that of its p...

    Game Review: Resident Evil Series

    Some of the older gamers will remember a time when survival horror was actually well... scary? Resident Evil, and I mean the original Resident Evil and all its PS1 glory, was a survival horror game where the player found themselves as a member of STARS, a police group quite like S.W.A.T. The elite of the elite in Raccoon City Police Department. The player is trapped in a mansion and soon comes face to face with flesh eating zombies. With limited weapons and resources, (seriously, that knife though. Doesn't kill the zombies at all! How hard...
