Torchlight II: Synergies Mod


A "mod" or modification is a small adjustment or addition to a game not made by the original developers. This mod in no shape or form is small. Synergies Mod is a complete refurbishment of the mechanics and gameplay for an already spectacular game. Salan, the main developer for this mod, knows exactly what the masses want and has it delivered it in one clean, swift blow.

The Best Cataclysm Private Server: AstralWoW


I know it seems a little tacky that I'm actually advertising for a private server for WoW out there, but honestly, this server deserves a mention. Astral WoW is honestly the best private server out there if you want an authentic levelling experience; in essence, it's a blizz-like server that has drop rates and experience rates identical to the authentic MMORPG. There are two realms currently: Emberflame (Cataclysm) and Azurelyte (WotLK).

Diablo III Has Been Released!


And so the burning hells of the Sanctuary have finally been set loose upon us. So how many of us have called in sick at work to battle against the demonic forces? What class is going to be your first class? All pretty legitimate questions. However, the most important question is: how do I prepare myself?

Well first of all, go in stores and buy yourselves a physical copy or purchase a digital version of the game online. Install the files as soon as possible, in fact, Blizzard had unlocked the encrypted Diablo files yesterday so you could've been one step ahead and installed the game since yesterday and then purchased the CD key online.

Create a BattleTag, it's required to play Diablo III and it serves as your identity within game. And remember folks: it is launch day. Blizzard has said especially today, that if the server capacity is full, they will add a short queue to the login interface or possibly display an error for people logging in until other people have logged out.

Once logged in, quickly excrete any waste products which may have been produced as a result of excitement. Rush downstairs and bring your entire fridge up; make sure you have lots of sugary drinks. You are now set for a Diablo-thon.

And finally, be sure to comment on what your impressions of the game are! Enjoy the game guys, it's been a heck of a long wait!

Guild Wars 2: The Elementalist


In Guild Wars 2, the elementalist profession fills the mage archetype class however the mechanics of this class are remarkably different, and in some cases complex, in comparison to mage classes found in other RPG-style games. The elementalist channels the natural forces, bending fire, earth, water and air at her bidding. Conventionally, what the elementalist lacks in physical toughness she makes up with massive burst damage; there's no need for defence if the enemy is decimated before it even reaches a melee radius. Despite the sheer damage capabilities of this profession, it's the versatility that makes the class formidable.

The "Wow-Killer"

When will the reign end?
In 2004, Blizzard launched the most successful MMO to date: World of Warcraft. Eight years on from that date and the game is still number one. WoW has become a benchmark for nearly every MMO developer. Every time a new MMO is about to launch, fans eagerly nickname the game the "Wow-Killer". It's safe to say that during the eight year period since its release no individual game has come close to achieving its fan-based nickname as World of Warcraft still reigns supreme with over ten million subscribers. WoW has managed to sit comfortably atop the throne thanks to its thriving community, regular content updates and a mellow-learning curve. Every time a new title is on the horizon, we ask ourselves the same question: "Is this the game that will topple WoW from its title". The answer is plainly "no".
