God of War E3 2017 Trailer

It would seem the son of Kratos is cursed.  They are clearly on a journey unlike any other.  We see gameplay, with the duo taking on various epic-looking enemies.  The biggest news is that God of War returns in early 2018.

Real Talk By: T-42

I recently had an opportunity to take a walk down gaming’s past, playing 3 wonderful classics in the MMO genre. Star Wars Galaxies, Earth and Beyond, and Jumpgate. All of which are no longer supported by original developers, and all 3 are no longer (officially) developed for or maintained. However all 3 can be played today. How is this possible? It is possible because dedicated fans and independent developers have made their own servers for the games to run on for free. Over the next few articles I will dive deep into each game going over the good the bad and why its important they are still around. Continue reading “Other Worlds: A Journey Through Games (Part 1)”

No Man’s Sky Review: Familiar Worlds

Real Talk By: T42

In this review I will be covering the game from two perspectives.  The first perspective will be purely just a game review, unbiased straightforward.  The second part of this review will cover the hype and criticism this game has received.  My final verdict will be based only on the first part of this review.  I feel that it is important to be honest and upfront with the reader, especially when it comes to a game like No Man’s Sky that has received many criticisms and opinions.  Let’s begin shall we?

No Man’s Sky is a single player exploration game set in a Sci-Fi universe with Billions of Planets to explore.  It features a simple crafting system in which you use to fix your ship, upgrade your equipment and even your survival suit.  The game’s main objective is to reach the center of the universe.  The PC version, for which this review is based on, can be played with either a controller or a keyboard and mouse.  Let me further explain that this is not a spaceship flight simulator game similar to games such as Elite: Dangerous or Evochron Legacy.  In fact this game is much simpler than that.  Although as I played the game the controls did feel funny especially when I wanted to land, the game makes it obnoxiously difficult to land which makes no sense to me considering part of the game’s mechanic is to fly the ship.  The game doesn’t offer much in the way of depth other than exploring and uncovering a mysterious language which helps in your conversations with other alien species.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Real Thoughts 

Real Talk By: T-42

For nearly a decade we had an absence of space games in the market.  It was a sad time for those who loved that genre. Then Chris Roberts brought the hype train and now there are space games everywhere! Ladies and Gentlemen, we have arrived.  We have a Triple A developer joining the space game ranks, Infinity Ward.


Everything about this new trailer is setting off my hype alarm, in both good and bad ways.  The good? Well, that comes in the form of it being what I am looking for in a warfare type sci-fi game. The other part being that it will scratch that itch that I thought Star Citizen would have fixed but has yet (and may not) deliver on.  It’s almost like this game is going to be a mix of CoD, Halo, and Mass Effect.  Could that be the ultimate game? Perhaps.
