So while we wait anticipated for Ghost Recon to come out next month, a friend of mine gave me access to the closed multiplayer beta and I got to play the game. The previous Ghost Recon was a blast, I had one of my most fun moments in gaming, it was just fun and different. This game however is not what you came to expect, it is almost nothing like the previous games and instead ...

So how good of a geek are you? This funky animation was created by talented artist Tim Hijlkema about video games. Instead of having characters and having you guess the name of the game he has created themed planets each representing a video game. Tim has crafted and animated 20 planets symbolizing games like Zelda, Mass Effect, Minecraft and so much more. I really love the simplistic animations and true dedication to the fans at the ...

I have played almost all the Ghost Recon games even back on the original Xbox and they were all a blast to play. So far no other game has created a proper 3rd person squad shooter that matches the quality and excellence in the gameplay. As you know the next installment in the series has somewhat completely changed, it is much more fast paced and relies on team work to achieve your objectives. This brand new ...

Well that was definitely unexpected! Lost Planet 3 is coming and from the looks of it, it’s not the Lost Planet we came to know. I remember playing the first game when it came out back in 2007, it was such a blast and loads of fun. A lot of memories were created there but sadly I cannot say the same about the second game as it was an ugly duckling taking everything great about the ...

So if you are into gaming you’d know what Minecraft is, either love it so much or just hate it and hate whoever plays it; regardless, the following video is for both of you. The animation itself was created by talented animator Craig Isherwood and narrated by the guys at The Yogscast. The video in simple terms is witty and straight to the point explaining how to survive in Minecraft since besides mining, Minecraft is all ...

Aboutt two months ago we featured a video by talented violinist Lindsey Stirling playing Lord of the Rings Violin Medley and it was great, this time around she and Peter Hollens created a remake of Skyrim’s theme song. I don’t think people will ever stop this Skyrim spree and I don’t think they should, Skyrim is vast and beautiful. Unlike the original soundtrack, this music video only features a voice of one person and the violin ...

This is a truly unique video and one that pushes technology further. Created by Daniel Franke & Cedric Kiefer, this project is a technology heaven, what the video is about is simply a dancer created out of little tiny particles that flow in the air like ashes as you see her dance and fade into her next move. The end result is so beautiful but it comes down to this, how was it made and it ...

So Like we previously pointed out, Green and I were disappointed by what AC Revelations had to offer, in one word, “repetition”. When AC III images were leaked, it looked the same but again with more modifications and additions which only led to the assumption that the cycle is going again and the fact that the setting has a huge amount of a woods changes things up and probably has a repetitive scenery as well. Anyway, ...

Though I haven’t played Skyrim in a while mainly because I was trying to beat Mass Effect 3 and I finally did, it does not mean I’m not going to bombard you with more Skyrim-related material. This time around a great series of posters by talented artist Dean Walton. These posters highlight the main cities of the huge Skyrim universe The illustrations are simple and to the point, I like how simplistic the forms are as ...

It seems that GTA is not quite forgotten as many still play GTA4 and of course youtube people make some of the creative videos ever. This video by ElectRoulette re-imagines the game series in a first person perspective and though it could never be considered by any sane gamer, the video is very brief and funny. Not only it is in first person, it also takes the GTA signiture abilities and brings them to real life ...

Splinter Cell is one of my favorite game series that I played since it first came out and it got better and better each time. Unfortunately, the latest installment of the game which came out 2 years ago holds nothing of the great things that made the other games. Here in celebration of the game series is a fan made web series that is not associated with Ubisoft yet has the quality and potential to ...

The studio behind this CGI video is Platige Image and they have created an outstanding job ...

Meet my new obsession. The game that will officially destroy my social life then shoot it in the face for good measure. I give you Guild Wars 2, a MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online) game that will change the face of gaming. To be honest I was skeptical at first, sure I played World of Warcraft when it first came out and I was addicted to say the least but for years now I’ve turned my ...

Given the recent release of the greatest action RPGs, Mass Effect 3 becomes the priority for fans for creating videos on YouTube. This video was created by YouTube user Dan Bull who has taken footage from all Mass Effect games including 3 (no ME 3 spoilers)and made up a clever rap video using his own dialogue. Not that I’m into to rap, which I’m not but this video was fun to watch. I did notice something ...

Following last week’s leaked screenshots and info, Ubisoft has cut to the chase and released a debut trailer of the game I wasn’t sure I wanted. Revelations was a disappointment to me and here for a fresh new start with a new protagonist called “Connor” whose father is british and mother is native American. The game is set between 1753 and 1783 and will feature events like The Great Fire of New York. Almost half of ...
