I just wrote a super song post and wordpress didn’t save it … FAIL. I’ll try to sum up what I wrote.

Rust or Day Z?

Post-apocalyptic games fascinate me and I just read of Rust which was featured on Steam. First thought was that it resembles Day Z.
(1) Both are in early stages of development but can still be accessed
(2) Survival games

 

I’m still debating on which one I want to try first! Reddit will help me answer these questions!

Being a Huge Star_ Fan…

… I thought I’d share this video regarding gamers who broadcast their gameplay and some for a living too.

Star_ is mentioned in this article¬†by the Boston Globe… even some photos of the mysterious Star_ oooOOooo. It mentions that he does YouTube full-time and some other things he uses to record. Steve aka Star_ is self deprecating and mentions that if a lousy player like himself can do this, there’s a business for e-sports. Pretty cool!

Photo is from article too.

If You Backed Oculus’s Kickstarter… Are You Rich?

Not necessarily, this article by The Verge goes into this topic.

Kickstarter doesn’t allow its creators to offer equity and never will. Oculus could offer its donors a pair of digital eyes but no stock. This reminds me of Razer how they offer donors who backed their kickstarter a significant discount on the Razer Blade Gaming Laptop.

Thought I’d share this interesting article now that Oculus is in the news more after Facebook acquired them.

The Evil Within – Preview

Just heard about this game, The Evil Within, developed by Bethseda. You know, the guys who mad The Elder Scrolls?

Anyways, I just watched the 16 minute gameplay for this and am quite looking forward to trying this game out once it’s released (August 26, 2014). It’s a survival horror¬†game I believe and boy does it look creepy. Reminds me of the movie Saw in a way. I don’t usually play scary games because it scares the crap out of me but I’d like to give the genre a shot.

This would be the kind of game where Pewdiepie screams his head off.
