Arcane Saga – Prius Online Reboot: Back from the dead?
Previously Known as Prius Online, Netmarble Brings Back the Popular MMORPG with a New Name and Fresh Content; but the question has to be asked, will the reboot succeed?
Let’s find out a little more about the publishing side to get a better opinion before we jump in to thoughts and worries.
Netmarble.com, a leading worldwide online game portal, is transforming the old into new with Arcane Saga, a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) previously known as Prius Online. The refreshed game is set to launch for the PC in North America in the first half of 2013. Interested players can visit the Arcane Saga Facebook page for more information and a sneak peek at the game.
“We really put Arcane Saga back in the oven to bake and we’ve brought out a lot of the fun without destroying the heart of the game,” said Jon-Enée Merriex, producer, Netmarble. “The Arcane Saga experience takes the best of what players enjoyed from th
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm is right around the corner and the pre-patch for wings of liberty; aka patch 2.4 (which comes out on Febuary 20th will give WoL all the non-exclusive features that HotS has to make the game more enjoable and ease the access of the game; this includes menu changes, new settings and the arcade redesign; it won't allow the new multiplayer units or campaign but will add everything else and lots of options are changed, added or reworded in the options menu so I figured I would give an overall guide on everything you should do to make your overall SC2 experience better and maybe even make you play better.
We'll start with basic windows mouse and keyboard settings a lot of people just ignore but WILL help you play better.

CLG.eu has finally announced that they are being signed by Team Evil Geniuses; most likely known for their Starcraft 2 personalities such as IdrA, HuK, Stephano and many others; EG outbid Azubu for one of the top teams in EU and CLG.eu not only gets to start streaming on twitch.tv again (as CLG as a team are sponsered by own3d) and they get signed by probably one of the most famous teams in E-Sports history.
I think it's great that a team like CLG.eu with all of their talent was sort of 'leashed' by a less-successful sister team and the team had sponsers that conflicted with streaming on twitch.tv. In the past own3d used to be the place to go as twitch.tv had regular disconnects, buffer issues, a bad layout and server other issues; but in time and many bad updates for own3d later
RaiderZ – Open Beta Review: “Hunt Together, Die Alone”
RaiderZ is a 3D MMORPG Developed by MAIET Entertainment published by PWE In US and Frogster in EU that combines new style of Action MMO’s with old school questing and dungeon crawling we had for years. I decided to work with GG.Mode and make an in-depth review of my thoughts of its current Open Beta state.
Cook your own class
RaiderZ drops your usual way of character development where you pick you class at the start and stick to it by acquiring new skills and abilities in that class tree for the rest of lifespan of your character and introduces unique multi class system in which you pick your starting “Style”. The pool of Styles you can pick isn’t all that big you have:
Defender: You’re standard MMORPG Tank
Cleric: Typical Healer
Berserker: Physical/Melee Damage Dealer
Sorcerer: Magic/Range Damage Dealer
This doesn’t seem like much variety however upon putting 10 points into your main Style you are allowed to...
We know; it's not the normal kind of game we play but we'll play anything once even if it doesn't have amazing reviews.
Genesis Gaming will storm The Legend of Edda closed beta and destroy all of the content before us; hopefully the game has some kind of PvP so we can pub-stomp the opposition.
Feel free to tune in and ask any questions you might have in chat; or join under the Genesis Gaming banner for the event! PM Icaras in-game; we're on Titan.
Join us @ 29th; Thursday November 7PM GMT

If you ask anyone who is relatively high elo, people who make videos about league of Legends, commentators and even Rioters if ELO hell exists; they all say it doesn't exist.
I was talking to GG.Infinitus about how ELO hell doesn't exist but it does in a sense; but in an exact opposite way. The most classic reasoning behind believing ELO hell exists is "No matter how well I play, I could go 10-0 I will still lose because of my team mates" This reasoning is wrong but is the exact reason why 'elo hell' effects some people.
ELO hell isn't alive because of ELO being used as a 1v1 algorithm it exists because of players mindsets and lack of responsibility. The very complaint that ELO hell exists is probably what's keeping them low ELO in the first place. Understand
I figured i'd write about the changes to the Season 3 Jungle as I jungle for my team on Genesis Gaming even if I did start to hate it as it basically became a tank-support role instead of ganking and carrying all three lanes. In season 2 Jungling was all about starting with 3 pots and boots; grabbing buffs getting 1 gank in and then build as a tank.
I think everyone noticed how if you had a tank jungle; you'd probably win because they could buy oracles; clear wards all day and not die with it and simply pressure everyone by the fact there is no wards on the map which makes people panic; but no more!
Season 3 brings a lot of new changes encouraging a harder jungle but less typical AoE tanks and more hyper carries. The new items and starting items are a real help to this. Let

GW2 – New Update: This is Halloween…
Guild Wars 2 has just sent out it’s biggest patch since launch; the Halloween patch. While it isn’t all for Halloween content a large amount of the changes are very festive in honour of an old human, the mad king. Now Tyria is under the shadow of the mad king, but it’s Halloween!
Before I get on to my thoughts of how this update has been handled, how festive it feels and if it’s even fun at all, let’s talk changes.
For about a week Tyria will be under the shadow of the Mad King which is a 4 act story/dynamic event that you can take part in. Each act lasts about 3 days or so you won’t get left behind but what else have we got?
Black Lion chests have been changed so they actually contain something rare and useful, weapon and shoulder pad skins which are all Halloween themed, from the “Greatsaw” which is a greatsword shaped like a chain saw to the Deathly Bull Shoulder pads. All of these skins look amazing and their price is already sky high let a...
