New Haven. Sounds like a nice sanctuary from the wildlife of Pandora, towering and glorious with all its splendors, right? Well, it’s not. Its really just a run down shanty town, hidden amongst mountains and deep valleys of trash! New Haven becomes your new base of operations for the duration of your vault hunting. Here we get to meet some new friends, some old friends, and some friends we hadn’t met until now. Read the rest of this entry »

Weekend Rant: Cross Platform Clash

Posted: July 26, 2010 by NebsiNsaNe in Rant

Last weekend, a post emanating from VoodooPC founder and HP CTO Rahul Sood’s personal blog has been circulating the regular PC and Gaming news sites. The post was a reflection on the state of PC gaming and Microsoft’s supposed failed attempt at Cross Platform gaming. To his credit, he is one of the few people who grasps the state of gaming on personal computers. Read the rest of this entry »

BOOM! Headshot?

Borderlands is one of those games that you’ll sit down to play for a couple hours and all of a sudden you’ve lost 6 or 7. It’s easy to just keep going like nothing is really going on in the outside world. Or in my case, I get tunnel vision with my monitor. The keyboard and mouse are my only outside contact from Pandora. NebsiNsaNe and I play together and we might talk to each, other but the feeling is more of two characters talking than gaming buddies. I’m not really into shooters; in fact I’ll tell you flat-out, I suck at FPS, but I’m not terrible in Borderlands. Surprising? I think warming up by rolling so many low-level alts made me practice at the game quite a bit. I’ve got a level 25 Hunter/Mordecai, and I’m in love. I didn’t know I was a sniper at heart!

Wow! You’re not dead?

So, starting a play through of this game with one of each of the characters available may not have been a smart idea, at least not at first. I’ve traversed all over the Arid Badlands outside of Fyrestone, killing skaggs, rakks, and bandits alike, and am nearing completion of the area with all four toons, but how much more of Pandora can I cover in a timely manner if I run each character simultaneously? I may have to pick one and stick to it until the end, then come back, but who to choose? Read the rest of this entry »

Weekend Rant: Gamestop, Used Games, and PC Gaming

Posted: July 19, 2010 by NebsiNsaNe in Rant

Let me start off by saying that I don’t like buying used games, nor do I like contributing to the bottom line of stores like GameStop whose only profit come from their used game offerings. These places seem to think a quick buff of a CD for scratch removal makes a game worthy enough for re-sale at $5 off its current market price, and case and manual be damned.  Not to mention the fact that developers don’t see a dime from the re-sale of the games they worked hard to create for us (though that seems to be changing thanks to ideas like BioWare’s Cerberus Network in Mass Effect 2). With that being said.. Read the rest of this entry »

GREETINGS TRAVELERS!

First up on our chopping block is Borderlands! As soon as I heard about this game, I was so excited it ended up being one of the few games I actually paid full price for on release day. I mean, a sci-fi shooter with a ton of different guns and enhanced abilities with elemental modifiers for my weapons and myself? Hell yeah! Read the rest of this entry »
