Diablo 3 - Reaper of souls

diablo3 reaper of souls
Reaper of souls will be released on the 25th of Mars next year (for PC, MAC and PS4).

I'm going to be brutally honest with you guys now. I havn´t played Diablo 3 for months. Why? Cuz I got fed up with the game after a while. Mainly due the bugs , and there´is pretty much nothing to do when you finished Inferno.

And O.J (my brother) feels pretty much the same thing about D3 (he playes Path of Exile now days). So Is there any hope left for D3? And will we ever start to play D3 again? Maybe, It all depends on how good the Reaper of souls expansion will be.

Imo. Reaper of souls will either make, or break D3 (even more). But yeah, Im going to give Reaper of souls a fair chance. But If It´s pure crap, than Im leaving D3 for good...

About Diablo 3 - Reaper of souls:
"The defeat of Diablo, Lord of Terror, should have given rise to an age of hope. Instead, it has drawn out a shadowy being of immense power whose malevolent purpose has yet to be revealed. Reaper of Souls, the upcoming expansion to Blizzard Entertainment's epic action RPG Diablo® III, opens a dark and terrifying new chapter in the ongoing conflict over the mortal realm of Sanctuary.

Malthael, the fallen Archangel of Wisdom, vanished long ago. In Reaper of Souls, he returns as the Angel of Death and seizes the Black Soulstone, which contains the essence of the Prime Evil. Should this dark power be unleashed upon the world, the results would be catastrophic.

Fortunately, a new hero is ready to join the cause and bring Malthael to justice-the Crusader. Clad in massive armor and bearing an impenetrable shield, this new playable class charges into battle wielding a range of cruel and punishing weapons and employing powerful battle magic to strengthen allies and weaken foes. A natural walking tank, the Crusader adds might and versatility to any party of adventurers."

Project Nimbus - Mecha action to the max!

project nimbus 
KISS Ltd need to collect 6,000£ within 25 days to make Project Nimbus happen.

I have been a huge fan of Mecha robots since the early 90s. And It all started with Transformers and Macross, since then. I have keept on playing Mecha games, and to watch Mecha animes. So It was just natural that I started to like KISS Ltd´s kickstarter Sci-fi/action game "Project Nimbus".

I mean, just check the Project Nimbus trailer out. It looks freaking awesome! But that´s not all. Nope, cuz Project Nimbus are coming to Steam as well. So now I really hope that Project Nimbus will get those 6,000£ asap!

Project Nimbus: 
"ProjectNimbus is a high speed robot action game built on UDK for PC. Player control human shaped war machine armed with arsenal of weapons called "BattleFrame" .

This game feature high speed robot action, missiles massacre, total flying freedom, intense action and many types of BattleFrame to pilot.

If intense battle scenes in Japanese mech animations capture your imagination, this is definitely what you are looking for."

Skulls of the shogun - Fight the undead warriors!

skulls of the shogun 
You can also buy (and play) Skulls of the shogun to PC (It´s yours for 15 Bucks).

It´s times like this that I really wish that I had a iPAD. Sure, you can play 17-BIT´s turn-based strategy game Skulls of the shogun on PC as well. But It's clearly made for the mobile format in first hand. And I have been watching some gameplay videos for the iPad version.

So let´s just say that Im going to buy Skulls of the shogun (It costs 5 bucks via App store) as soon as I own a iPad. 

About Skulls of the shogun:
"Crush your enemies and eat their skulls! Skulls of the Shogun is a fast-paced turn-based strategy game, supercharged with fighting-game flare and double-stuffed with a serious sense of humor! Enter the Samurai Afterlife and join forces with undead warriors, magical monks, and mighty mustachioed samurai generals!"

And here we are, at the very last day of 2013. But what a year It has been for us. We have achived pretty much everything that we wanted for this year. For example, we are "just" 600 followers away from the 10K mark on Twitter.

We might not make It today, but we will reach that goal within the next couple of days. We also have this "tradition" to write new goals for the coming year on New Years Eve. So, I did exactly that this morning. One of the most important of goals for us to achive next year, Is to start a whole new webpage (TGG v2.0).

Cuz we feel that It´s time to move on to the next level. But for the mean while, enjoy Solar spectrum´s awesome Psytrance album "Droplets From The Matrix" !

I know what you're thinking "OMFG! This Is not Brutal Doom v19!" That´s correct. Cuz I feelt like I need to play "other" games as well. So Im going to blend up my Gaming videos a bit.

Cuz It feelt like I was eating the same kind of food day In, and day out. And not everyone likes Doom, so, I will play a handfull of different games every week from now on.

Anyhow, here´s part I of my Mutant hockey league series! And btw, I play as Pucksucker Pukes ;)

Cliff Bleszinski makes a new shooter game

cliff b
Cliff Bleszinski aka "Cliff-B".

I don't think anyone really believe that Cliff-B would be gone from the video game industry for good (Cliff left Epic Games In October 2012). At least I didn´t. And surprise, surprise. Cliff-B are (Jazz Jackrabbit, Unreal,Gears of War.) back In biz again! And apparently his going to work on a new shooter game (FPS).

But If It's for good or bad, time will tell.

"I have a slide deck, I have a pitch, I have concept art, I know pretty much what I want to do," Bleszinski told Pointless host Kevin Pereira. "It will be a PC experience that will hearken back to a certain type of game that we cut our teeth on, if you know what I'm saying."

"I don't want to work with the old guard, per se," Bleszinski said. "I'll talk to them, have meetings. But the last thing I need is some mid-level marketing guy telling me that 'well, traditionally, this doesn't sell well, so we're concerned,' and all that. Because they're all rearward-looking, it just drives me f**king bats**t."Cliff Bleszinski, via Kevin Pereira

Mega Man - The board game

mega man board game  

 I sure hope that the Mega Man board game will turn out really great In the end.

I just heard about Jasco Games Mega Man board game. And I just found out that the game has already been fully funded via Kickstarter (several times over!). The goal was to collect 70,000 dollars, but Jasco Games has collected 257,000$ to date.

And still there´s 19 more days left on the Kickstarter watch. So I wouldn't be surprised If Mega Man the board game, get´s another 100-200K before the time runs out. But still I can´t help to ask my self the following questions.

Are a board game really worth all this money? And how fun can a Mega Man board game be really?

About Mega Man - The board game:
"The Mega Man Board Game, created and licensed by Jasco Games, brings all the excitement and fun found in the classic video game series to the tabletop. Like our page to get more details about the upcoming board game and the latest developments to this exciting entry in the Mega Man saga!"

Imagine Me will be released to PC (via Steam), MAC, Linux and Wii-U. 

I don´t really know what to make of Kinifi Games "Imagine Me". Either It´s nothing, or It´s everything. Hard to say. Me, I heard about the game some hours ago. So I started to look at some concept pictures for Imagine Me (I also read the background storyfor the game).

And, well, Iet´s just say that Im going to keep an eye on the Imagine Me project. Cuz It might just become something rather rad with time.

About Imagine Me:

Crystalica - Lueur Verte

5 epic songs for 5,50 Euro. That´s a really good deal imo.

I don't know exactly when I started to like electronic music. But I think my taste for electronic music started In the early 90s some time. Cuz I do remember that I  really enjoyed the soundtrack for "Scarface" and "Miami Vice".

And with time, I became a even bigger fan of that music genre. That´s also the reson why Im listning to Lueur Verte´s epic album "Crystalica" right now. Crystalica are like a mix of both 80s dreamwave electronic, and synth pop.

It´s a really nice mix anyhow, and the tracks are really groovy. Crystalica Is the kind of album that you listen to when you just wanna relax, and dream yourself away for awhile. And If you like Crystalica, then checkout Lueur Verte´s other albums.

Cuz they are just as good imo!

Nvidia Geforece NvStreamSvc can cause bluescreens

nvidia geforece nvstreamsvc
Not only does the NvStreamSvc process slow your PC down. It can give you a bluescreen as well... 

This would be one of the very few times that I write about hardware related problems. But yesterday I had to fix a really annoying hardware/software problem. At first I didn't even know why the problem occurred,but just like always.

I checked the event viewer, and went through the error message. Then I found out that It was a proccess named "NvStreamSvc" that caused my bluescreen. It´s a process that´s a part of the Nvidia Geforce Experience program.

So pulled the plug on "NvStreamSvc". But there was more to It then "just" that. I also had to turn of the Nvidia 3D vision as well. And guess what? Not only did that solve the problem, but my computer are way faster now as well!

So If your using any of Nvidias graphic cards, then you should most definitely check If you have a process named "NvStreamSvc", running In the background. You can find more info and resources on the subject below.

How to solve the Nvidia Geforece NvStreamSvc problem:

Russia loves Amanita Designs games

jakub dvorsky
Mr Jakub Dvorsky. 

Something rather cool happened to me last night. Cuz out of nowhere I recived a mail from a Russian Gamer named "Dmitriy". And he pointed out for me that he had read my article about Amanita Design and Jakub Dvorsky.

And he really liked It, especially the article which I scanned and uploaded. Infact, he liked It so much. That he asked me to scan all 8 pages, and mail them to him. Which I also did. So hopefully, someone will be able to translate It all to Russian (Or English).

Because all the pages are In Swedish. I also learned something awesome while I talked to Dmitriy. Like the fact that Russia really loves Amanita Design games. I had no clue (whatsoever) at all about that. But now I know.

So I bet that a lot of Russian Gamers can´t wait to get their hands on Samorost 3. So I wish Amanita Design (Jakub Dvorsky) the best of luck with that game!  And a big thanks to Dmitriy for all the information!

Telltale Games makes Game of thrones video game series

telltale games game of thrones
I sure hope that Telltale won´t mess this one up...

This ain't exactly news for anyone. Cuz It´s been known for weeks now that Telltale games will make a episodic Game of Thrones series. I just wanted to give my take on It. Because there´s quite a few factors to keep In mind In this calculation.

For starters, Cyanide Studios failed miserably with their own interpretation of Game of thrones (the game had something like a 50% average rating worldwide). Yes, I know. Telltale Games ain´t Cyanide Studios, and their nothing alike.

But still, It sure raised some concern on my behalf (bad vibbes). Second of all, some think that Telltale Games have way too many irons in the fire at the same time. I mean, they work on both the Walking Dead series, and The Wolf Among Us.

So both the TWD, TWAU and the Game of thrones fans, are worried that something's gotta give. In other words. which one of Telletale video game series will suffer the consequences of joggling to many balls In the air at the same time?

Hopefully none none of them, and "hopefully" Telltale won´t mess up Game of thrones In the end.

"Telltale Games and HBO® announce Partnership to Create Games based on Game of Thrones®. 2012 Studio of the Year and HBO Global Licensing in multi-year, multi-title partnership to Create Games Based on Emmy® Award-Winning Television Series."

République are available on the App Store

I really hope that République will be released for Android as well though.

Before I close up the shop for the day. I just wanted to inform you guys about the fact that Camouflaj´s dystopian thriller/Stealth-survival game "République", has now been released on the App store (It costs 5 dollars. iPhone, iPad and iPod touch). 

You can also buy the soundtrack via App store as well. Me, Im buying the iPad version asap!

Press release:
"Seattle, WA – December 19, 2013 - Independent development studio Camouflaj announced today that the first installment in its dystopian action-adventure game République is now available on the App Store. Created by industry veterans behind such AAA games as F.E.A.R., Halo 4, and Metal Gear Solid 4, and designed specifically for iOS, République brings console-quality gameplay and graphical fidelity to the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

“We’ve spent the past two years crafting stealth action that doesn’t require 17 buttons, or even a controller,” said Ryan Payton, designer at Camouflaj. “Using our smart AI and logic-based input systems, République’s ‘one touch’ input method is something we’re incredibly proud of, and we can’t wait to share it with the world.”

République secured a substantial portion of its funding via crowdfunding platform Kickstarter, concluding a successful campaign in May of 2012. Kickstarter backers will receive a free season pass ($18.99 value) for all five episodes of République, with new episodes released every two to three months.

In République, players assist Hope, a desperate young woman struggling to escape from a secret, Orwellian state. Communicating using a stolen phone, Hope contacts the player and asks them to hack into the nation’s surveillance system, assume control, and guide her out of the clutches of the omnipresent Overseer.

Literary works such as 1984 and Brave New World, and current geopolitical events including global surveillance and Internet censorship serve as key sources of inspiration for both the narrative and the stealth-survival gameplay. Players expand their control over surveillance cameras and other network-enabled devices, growing into an active threat to the Overseer and his grip over his shadowy nation.

République introduces Rena Strober as the voice of Hope, backed by an all-star voice talent team. Jennifer Hale (Commander Shepard, Mass Effect series) plays Hope’s mentor, Mireille Prideaux, while David Hayter (Solid Snake, Metal Gear Solid series) gives voice to Zager, revolutionary and ghost in the political machine. Also featured are veteran voice actors Matthew Mercer (Resident Evil 6), Khary Payton (Batman: Arkham Origins), and Dwight Schultz (killer7).

Developed using the Unity games development platform, République also showcases Faceware Technologies’ cutting-edge facial motion capture hardware and software used to create the believable character animations.

Available in French, German, Spanish, Russian and Brazilian Portuguese, the first episode of République is available for 38,00 kr (SE), 32,00 kr (DK) and 35,00 (NO) exclusively on the App Store on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch or at www.AppStore.com/Republique. République is also scheduled for release on PC and Mac in 2014. For more information, visit www.camouflaj.com.

Ghostbusters Rock Version by Armcannon

Will there ever be a part III?

For some odd reason, I started to think about a Ghostbusters 3 movie over breakfast this morning. But I highly doubt that It will ever happen. I mean, the original crew are old as hell by now. And If Im not totally wrong now, both Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd.

Have turned down a sequel to Ghostbusters II several times now (due really bad scripts). Me, I would love to see a Ghostbusters 3. But only If It´s good. And that´s also the main reson why the movie never taken off.

Cuz the scripts has sucked so damn hard. But I guess that one should never say never. Oh well, heres a really epic rock version of the Ghostbusters theme by Armcannon.

Happy Wheels - Total Jerkface

happy wheels
This Is madness! No, It´s just Happy Wheels!

Ah, yes. Total Jerkface Happy Wheels are most likely the flash game that I have played the most In recent years. Why you might ask? Cuz It´s both freaking insane, and insanely fun to play. Happy Wheels are that kind of game that you can play to cheer yourself up (If you had a bad day and so on).

Cuz It´s very easy to get started, and It makes me laugh every single time. And by now everyone and everything should know about Happy Wheels. But for those who don´t. Happy Wheels are basically a crazy racing/platform game.

And don´t cry your heart out If you die. Cuz you will die many, many, MANY times In Happy Wheels. So don´t worry, that's just a natural part of the game xD

Me, Im more than happy with the stuff that I´ve got for christmas =) Here´s part 4 of Thy Flesh Consumed anyhow, enjoy!

Tombi 1 and 2 - The forgotten platform series

ps1 tombi
Tombi 1 can be bought on PSN now days. Part II hasn´t been released on PSN yet though.

A reader (and a fan) requested that we should write about Whoopee Camp´s old platform/action game series "Tombi 1 and 2" (Tombi! in North America). So I decided to do exactly that. But honestly, I have only played the first game a bit (that´s also the only game that I have written about as well).

Cuz when Tombi! 2 (Tomba! 2: The Evil Swine Return) was released In EU (In the summer of year 2000). I was way to busy with games such as Diablo 2, Deus Ex and Baldur's Gate II (to name a few).

So I didn´t even notice that Tombi 2 had been released. That´s also why I missed out on that game. And just to make things even worse. The makers of the Tombi series (Whoopee Camp), went bankrupt shortly after the release of Tombi 2.  That's probably why most people haven't even heard about the Tombi series In the first place. 

And It´s kind of sad really, because Tombi 1 and 2 ain´t half that bad. So "hopefully", both games will end up on PSN In the near future (for both PS3 and PS4). Me, I will buy both games as soon as I own a PS3 or a PS4 system.

Alien Assault 2 - Evolution

alien assault 2
If you like the old school X-Com games. Then your going to LOVE Alien Assault 2!

Im a huge fan of the X-Com series, and I really love X-COM Enemy Unknown. But (yes, there Is a but In this), I prefer the old school games even more. Well, at least the vibbes that they gave me. That´s also why I like Teardowns Alien Assault.

Cuz It´s like a mix of both Space Hulk and X-COM. The first Alien Assault game has already been released (like, years ago. It´s F2P!). But Teardown are working on Alien Assault 2 - Evolution right now. It´s unclear when Alien Assault 2 will be released though.

But I can wait, cuz Im having a blast with Alien Assault right now =)

About Alien Assault 2 :

"Alien Assault 2 is currently in "pre production" and the development team is collaborating with the Alien Assault community to define the game design. When this is done the game will move into production. To be a part of and/or get information about the pre production and later on the production phase feel free to read more on our forum!"

Ristar - Ice Scream (Sonic 3 remix)

Ristar are a very underrated platform game imo.

I have been a fan of DJ Yuzoboy for a long, long time now. But due the fact that It´s been like, forever since I wrote about the guy. I really feelt like It´s about time that I do so. And guess what? I commented the following words on his "Illusion Of A Brainstem (Sega Genesis remix)" video yesterday:

"I love your work man =) I just subscribed to your channel as well. Keep up the good work bro. Cheers from Sweden!"

And I got the following answear from DJ Yuzoboy!

"Thanks, appreciate it :)" - DJ Yuzoboy, Valkyrie Profile - Illusion Of A Brainstem (Sega Genesis remix)

That really made my day =) But there´s more! Cuz  DJ Yuzoboy just released a brand new remix video, and It´s called "Ristar - Ice Scream (Sonic 3 remix)". So, please enjoy people!

Spectra - Chipzel

spectra chipzel 
Imo, "Spectra " are Chipzel´s best album to date.

Chipzel has really outdone herself this time. Cuz her new album "Spectra" (It costs 3.50 pounds on Bandcamp) are nothing less than a fu**ingmasterpiece of a chiptune album. Every single song on that album rocked my socks off.

There's no doubt within my mind, that "Spectra" are one of the very best Chiptune albums In the history of chiptune. So If you like Chiptune music, then do yourself a favour and buy Spectra asap!

It´s not every day that you get the great pleasure to play such an awesome sci-fi adventure game.

So check It out asap boys and girls!

Michael Thomasson has the worlds biggest game collection

michael thomasson
Michael Thomasson´s video game collection (11,000 games) are estimated to be worth between 700,000 to 800,000 dollars.

I "almost" blushed when I saw Michael Thomasson (a 43 year old father from New York) enormous video game collection just now. Holy shit! It´s over 11,000 games In Michael´s collection, that´s totally insane. But that´s also the reson why Michael are the Guinness World Record holder, for the largest video game collection In the world.

The Guinness World Record for largest game collection has been set by Michael Thomasson, a 43-year-old New York father. Me, I "just" own about +1,000 games. And I thought that I had a pretty impressive video game collection.

I guess that I have to rethink the whole thing now haha! So, how big are your video game collection boys and girls? How many games do you own?

Kill them internet trolls and haters!

I shouldn't be surprised really, cuz I knew that It was just a matter of time. Im talking about haters and internet trolls. A couple of days ago I got called a lot of stuff by an asshole on Youtube.

That´s no biggie really. And I don´t really care. But that made me think about one thing that I heard a long time ago. The more famous and successful you become. The more haters your going to get (and internet trolls of course).

So I guess we just have to get used to that crap. In the kind of way that we must be able to handle It In a good kind of way. Or It will eat us up from the inside.

That´s why I decided to speak up about haters and internet trolls In this video. So, please enjoy people!
