Farcry 4 Released

Far Cry 4 has been released and available at most places you purchased games. I really enjoyed Far Cry 3. The graphics and game play was good. The lack of an editor is a short coming on the series. I suppose as these games get more complex to make the editors become less intuitive.

Syndicate Announced

syndicate image

A new title is coming based on the once popular Syndicate. I have fond memory’s of playing Syndicate on the AMIGA 500 computer. Anyway Syndicate isn’t going to be 3D isometric anymore, instead opting for a First Person Shooter experience. We will have to wait and see how it turns out. I am a bit sad they dropped the 3D Isometric because it was brilliant. There is a teaser website that doesn’t seem to work yet. I will add a link when it starts responding.

The Duke Nukem Forever Demo is out tomorrow but only if you are a member of the First Access Club. I happen to have purchased Borderlands at the right time and I will be downloading the demo tomorrow. Duke Nukem Forever is set to be released June 14th

It looks like First access Club Members will also get access to the first multiplayer addon when it comes out.

I would like to go on the record now and put forth I never once bad mouthed the development of Duke Nukem Forever and in fact I have written that the game will be epic when it’s released. We will soon see if I was correct in my theroy.

Here is the website.

Brink Review Gamersnews.com

Brink Review by Christian McMahon A.K.A Dr Reaper

Brink Engineer Review by Christian McMahon AKA DrReaper

Brink is a shooter with some twists. First off the class system is in effect. You can play a soldier, medic, engineer and an operative. These are the same classes for both sides of the battle for the ark. The game is set in the future around an ark made of a lot of storage containers. Each side has decided to pick up weapons instead of trading supplies and good will. The battle in sues and all hell breaks loose on the ark. You basically have missions you can choose from when you start the level. On a mouse and keyboard setup you can hold rolling mouse wheel to pick a mission. You will tell your party what you’re planning to do.  Then it’s off to the races to get that done. From time to time you may want to switch your mission. For example you’re the team engineer and you’re on the way to disable a bomb. One of your guys steps on a mine. It won’t go off until he steps off so you can change missions and go disarm the mine first. The game wants you to stay together to achieve mission goals. However life is cheap and in a FPS it’s far cheaper. The maps are really not that large to start with and thus you can respawn and be right back in the action with little muss or fuss. Should I dump my current mission to go and save a guy on a mine when he can just respawn? It’s a call you will have to make as an engineer.

I have mainly been playing Brink as an Engineer so far. I enjoy setting up turrets, building walls, buffing weapon damage on teammates, laying mines. You get to level up and get better equipment and appearance items. It takes some time to get the hang of the game. What works and what doesn’t. I have had the game as of the release date and I only have just started topping the charts.

Weapons can be upgraded by playing challenge missions. These can be played solo or multiplayer. I solo them on easy. However if you want to get the best items in the game, you better get good at these because as they level up they get hard fast. I am going to try to play them multiplayer on the next difficulty because I expect humans are better warriors than the bots they give you to fight with.

Brink is a team based shooter and it plays like one. I think it is an enjoyable game and will continue playing it for some time after I post this review. I am going to continue on with the engineer and see how far I can take it. Brink has some legs in the lifespan department because each class plays different. I expect learning to play each class with all its leveling will take quite some time.

Is Brink the next big shooter? It’s too early to tell. I think the game looks and play’s good and the game is fun. I have been playing on the PC and there is little to no lag in the games I have been playing. We will have to see what comes out to support the game in the next few months.

I do like the way the shooter plays. As you fire the aiming circle gets larger. This shows the possible area where your shots may spread out. It’s a nice heads up you can’t get with a real weapon yet. Also I always like the lean around the corner Q,E .

One additional skill in Brink is the movement option where you can spring around like a guy in a movie. Sometimes it seems like they are defying gravity as they move over and under different obstacles. This is achieved in Brink by holding down a key on the keyboard and moving as normal. While it helps a lot it can also slow you down big time. If you happen to hit a railing on some stairs while attempting to climb them you may be in for a couple of seconds of climbing that rail. It doesn’t seem like much but if you are being shot at it can be a long time. You can also slide under things and into players. This takes some practice but I have seen it make the difference between winning and losing a close encounter with another player.

Team play is essential to win in brink. I have seen teams that stay together wipe the enemy team. I have also seen a good team setup a killing field for enemies. If your team is wiping a lot slow them down if you can and everyone attack together. It can change the tide of the battle. If you can’t get any organization on your side you will have a better chance by following team mates. Two is always better than one and you may get lucky and attract others to your strike force.

As always if you see me in game send out a shout. Dr Reaper.
