So Scarlet Blade is the American version of Queen’s Blade. It is an MMO with only female characters and primarily relies on sex appeal. Armor merely changes the type of skimpy clothes that your character is wearing. It does not even try to hide this fact and try to profit off of it as well. They are also selling some founder pack stuff with limited time items.
The story starts off with the character’s group being under attack and communications are offline. You (something called an Arkana, which seems to be despised by some people as well) have to restore it and start solving some sort of mystery behind everything. It is confusing when the NPCs all communicate to you through some sort of wireless system rather than in person, but it makes sense considering the level of technology available. The good thing is that there is a little voice acting at least so it is not as boring as other games.
I am going to have to state something right away. I REALLY hate the login...
So recently, EA and their Maxis branch released the new SimCity for PC. The catch was that this was online only as a form of Digital Rights Management (DRM) to deal with the copyright infringement. Unfortunately, when you make a game online only, you need to have servers that can handle the number of players. This means that servers have to be prepared ahead of time before launch so that everyone can log on once the game is officially released. As we have seen with other games, including MMOs, this never happens. A game's population tends to peak during the first few months and it declines until the death of a game with the rare spikes that occur when expansion packs are released.
Over the years, EA has experimented with numerous forms of DRM. The earliest form was probably CD keys that restricted people to only 1 allowed online at any given time so that people could not share keys. They used online authenciation to try to curb that, but some people just disconnected their Internet...
Crowd funding is the act of people pooling their resources (money in this game) to finance a project. Kickstarter has become famous for this concept and what they do is take a portion of the money that you earn through their site as a fee to keep themselves going. Unfortunately, many projects do not reach their goals, but this can be used as a way to determine interest in a concept. However, there is fear that this system is abused and money is not used for the intended purpose, such as developing a game. Some of the sites have taken it upon themselves to force the people who receive the money for the project to either complete the project or return all of the money.
The most notable instance of crowd funding has to be Double Fine Adventure, which raised nearly $3.5 million. Other companies have also turned to crowd funding to try to create new video games. They rely on their name to try to produce sequels to games that have long since been forgotten. These examples include dead fran...
With the massive overhaul of League of Legends since the Pre-Season 3 patch, I figured it was time that League of Legends was due for an update. However, the Season 3 patch revealed that they were overhauling the ranking system as well so I decided to wait for that before I wrote about the game again. This is a re-review of the game as of 2/10/13.
N/A - Wars are bad, new Fields of Justice system are used to settle the fights instead. Read up on it if you want, but no one cares and storytelling was abandoned long for just character lore.
Since I last reviewed the game, the maps have been reworked to be higher in detail along with many character models. The previous problem of some champions being completely out of place when standing next to others is slowly being fixed, but they have a long way to go for many of them. The process is slow, but they are gradually getting around to it with one every few months. Hopefully with the release of new champions cut back, th...
