The Gravy on your Mashed Potatos – Bioshock 2

Posted in PC Games with tags , , , , , , , on October 23, 2008 by insignificantgamer

Today is a very good day for anyone into well made Computer games. Bioshock 2 Trailer was released today on the Game Trailers website. Called Sea of Dreams, what can be told from the video, the little girl has grown up a few years… early teens perhaps. From the looks of the title banner water will be a major feature in the second game as it did in the first.

Tid-bit Fact: Bioshock hired two game designers/programmers for two years to work on nothing but the water effects for the game. That is dedication!

If Bioshock 2 is anything like the first we are going to have an editors choice from big names like PC Gamer Magazine and Gamespot as well as (enter game any reviewer here). But you already knew that didn’t you? 🙂

Diablo 3 Announced and Why Blizzard Blows

Posted in PC Games with tags , , , , , on June 29, 2008 by insignificantgamer

So, a couple days ago Blizzard (known for such games as Starcraft and the epically successful World of Warcraft) has decided to go ahead and announce a new Diablo game. This has gotten the attention of everyone who has ever played the Diablo games and the ratings on Game Trailers.com have been getting 9.0+/10. The fact is Blizzard makes successful games, but the reason why they are successful is because they bring all these franchises back over the years, and give the loyal followers more of the same. Innovation is non existent from this company. Starcraft 2: more of the same and the way this new Diablo game is shaping up its still going to be a top down hack and slash with nothing new to bring to the table. You want an example of new and innovative games that are driving this industry check out what Nintendo has done with the Wii and the DS. Check out games like Mirrors Edge, or the Tom Clancy’s End War, where the battle field is controlled with your voice. Its these games that are providing for our future, as for Blizzard they are just money sucking leeches.

Bam!
