Blizzard is releasing their first big patch for ‘StarCraft II’ today. It will change a few general issues and a whole lot of balance issues with each race in the game.
We have several balance changes in store. One general change we’re making is that friendly units will no longer provide vision after being killed. Enemy units previously revealed will no longer be targetable. Now let’s break down the additional balance changes we’re implementing.
We’re going to be adding destructible rocks to the Desert Oasis map to make natural expansions easier to protect. In addition, the center map watchtower area is being narrowed.
We have two key changes in mind for the zealot: the build time is being increased from 33 to 38 seconds, and the wa
I guess you guys have long known that playing video games helps sharpen reflexes and motor skills, but a new study proves that gaming also has a strong effect on our cognitive abilities as well. Daphne Bavelier, Alexandre Pouget, and C. Shawn Green have authored a study that purports to show that video games could be used as training to increase reaction time in a wide variety of real-life situations.
Well, is that ture? As a old gamer, lots of people think we're wasting our time without gaining any t
Hoo-boy. I hate to tell you, but you guys are going to have it rough this week -- there's a lot to buy, between Hetalia, Corpse Princess, Dragon Ball Kai, Haruhi Season 2 and Golgo 13. Really, you may as well not even bother saving that paycheck.
On the manga side of things, we've got a Moto Hagio title coming out -- Drunken Dream and Other Stories -- that's sure to be worth your while. Otherwise, rape your mother and read more Detroit Metal City.
As always, let us know what you pick up down in the comments below. How many of you are actually going to plunk down the money for Endless Eight?
There were a good handful of Batmans at DragonCon – Majority of them were outstanding. I had this guy come up to me telling me he had a Dark Knight costume upstairs he was going to change into. I expected a pretty cool costume to come down – I had to slap myself in the face when I saw this guy.
He was a pretty cool person and so was his soon-to-be-wife. (who was a fantastic Catwoman – I’ll be working on her photos shortly!)
He gave me about an hour with him while I setup lighting and thought of ideas for this Batman shoot. His costume was near-replica of a Dark Knight and I wanted to make sure I got this masterpiece captured.
By far the best Dark Knight cosplay I have ever seen. The guy had the correct bone structure fo
Though you may say that, you reap what you sow, these are the true words for the entire video game and entertainment industry.
Game developers are just copying each other and what not, that's a fair assumption, but here's the thing, a lot of those games, have different stories, levels, designs and what not.
What Zynga did here was just change the name. Everything else was left the same.
For example, Perfect Dark is different from Goldeneye because of the different levels, characters, music. Even though they're essentially the same game.
But Farmville just copied and pasted. The screenshot that site provided is proof.
"Hey guy, come on, are you kidding me?"
Maybe some of you guys would also say this above, but Biffotasty, a fan of Super Street Fighter IV, put it into reality.
Aided by a standard-issue Street Fighter IV FightStick, this guy pulls off all of Ryu's Trials in Super Street Fighter IV - using one hand. And he collects the achievement for it, to boot.
As a YouTube user, Biffotasty filmed himself doing this over the course of 30 minutes. Trials "21 and 24 were the hardest, almost made me reconsider trying to do it, but then I realised that I was hardcore." And so he is.
Now. What was he doing with his other hand? Hmmmm?
Video Games | NBA Elite 11 | Exclusive Matchups DiaryXBox 360 | Playstation 3 | Nintendo Wii
As a faithful NBA fan, there is nothing that would make me crazy but the mighty back of NBA Elite11.
This year NBA Elite 11 introduces a singleplayer "Become Legendary" career mode. The crux of your advancement seems to be outperforming the best player on opposing teams, according to this video examining the mode's matchups.
Experience points will be on the line in these games - to be earned or taken away, depending on how well or how poorly you do. Get schooled by a lesser player and you'll see the XP decrease; take down your designated matchup foe - do better than him, statistically speaking, while your team also wins the game - and you'll see a boost to your progression....
The Emergent Media Center of Champlain College in Burlington, Vermont is working on a unique game to educate boys on the effects of violence against women.
What makes the in-development game different is that it involves soccer, which should make the game more palatable to youngsters. As users play a soccer match, the on-field action will be broken up with narrative sections which pose social decisions, reports the Chronicle of Higher Education.
A team of 50 students is working on the game, which was funded by a grant from the United Nations Population Fund. Aimed at boys between the ages of 9 and 13 years of age, the game is scheduled for an online release in March.
Ann DeMarle, Director of the Emergent Media Center, hopes that the game will have international appeal. She commented on why the game targets boys, saying “We need education of women, and we need to help victims, but at the same time, you can only go so far if you can't change the culture of the men.”
