Addicting Indie Adventure Game – Spud’s Quest

By |2017-02-08T01:19:18+00:00September 29th, 2013|Categories: Games|Tags: , , , , , |

Spud's Quest is a fabulous indie adventure game created by Chris Davis from Derby UK, that takes you back in time as it was inspired by classics such as the Dizzy series, Zelda and Metroid. Talk about nostalgia, yes - I'm emotional! Chris has been interested in making games since he got hold of the ZX Sprectrum age 12, since then has taught himself to sprite and code games. Spud's Quest was successfully funded 120% on back in November 2012 on  Kickstarter with its 475 backers raising £6000 I first noticed this game from chat floating around on Twitter - It seems that Chris, who is on @SpudsQuest has done a wonderful job raising awareness on this Game.  Somewhere I saw someone ask him, how many on the Dev team - "Just me," he answered. I love Platform Puzzle Games, and the name "Spud's Quest" intrigued me,  so I had to check it out more -  I saw that @beetlebear of @indiegamehq was reviewing it on Twitch.tv and giving away keys - so I popped over to have a look, [...]

FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn an MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game)  is a relaunched version of Final Fantasy XIV (1.0)  Final Fantasy XIV/Legacy from 2010 which evidently was a bit of a flop.  The old version of the game was given an update in November 2012 but was ceased in December.   Since November 2012 Square Enix have been testing the new version of the FFXIV game in Alpha its now through to Beta Testing and is already available for preorder. An Epic and ever-changing FINAL FANTASY as you adventure and explore with friends from around the world.

Testing was to commence that weekend - I was [...]

The Rings of Orbis a science fiction fantasy RPG in a virtual Alien world

By |2017-02-08T01:19:43+00:00January 8th, 2013|Categories: Games|Tags: , , , , , |

The Rings of Orbis is a FREE online Science Fiction Game created by Author Philip-Jon Haarsma - now known as PJ Haarsma  - and his team to accompany his best selling series of books The Softwire series.  Books and gaming together are a fabulous formula to encourage and children to read!  How better to spark an interest in reading, that when you play game that is so interesting you have to find out more. I've been looking The Rings of Orbis and now even I want to read the books so I can get a full background to the game, and to find out more clues to help with the game - but I am a big kid! I am a super fan of this idea, probably as reading is so important and as a gamer but also because my own son, had a similar idea, he has written a book and planned a series, got some designs for a game, drawings and ideas and he started all this when he was around 12 years old when he was inspired by another series of [...]

Strict Nat problem with Modern Warfare 3 – Call of Duty

By |2017-02-08T01:20:12+00:00November 9th, 2011|Categories: Games|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

The time had come! Modern Warfare 3 was released yesterday,  eager gamers - queued up to get their copy first lastnight at 12am. Only to find when they returned on that they had a strict nat not an open nat on their Xbox 360 and couldn't join any online games. We had the same problem, strange though as it often happens with us, not sure if its due to the ip address not being static or the fact something is set up wrong on the router, but set everything up correctly for two Xboxes on the router - anyway I digress. This is what we do, when one of the xboxes have a strict nat - we do this on the xbox - not the router. Follow this video its as easy as pie and takes 5mins - Fix your nat settings for xbox360 this should work, if only for the time being. Otherwise Xbox has their own instructions here - Error: Your NAT type is set to strict (or moderate) Last Modified 9/8/2011 If you can’t join online games or hear other [...]

Gaming – The next generation – Nintendo 3DS

By |2017-02-08T01:20:20+00:00October 3rd, 2011|Categories: Games|Tags: , , , , , , , |

PS Vita. Wii U. With these consoles (possibly along with the PS4 and X-Box 720) launching over the next two years, the near future holds a lot for gaming. However, with a new set of consoles set to erupt onto the market, it would be easy to forget that the next generation has actually begun – albeit not explosively – with the 3DS. Nintendo 3DS I’ll be fair; the 3DS hasn’t exactly had the greatest year so far. After its launch in March, it sold poorly due to the lack of Nintendo’s usual quality software (to this date, there still isn’t a full Mario title out for the console) and the high price point. This led to an unprecedented price drop after less than six months from the console’s launch, which annoyed some fans and caused investors to worry about Nintendo’s future. The worlds first glasses-free 3D Gadget However, things could be turning around for the worlds first widespread glasses-free 3D gadget. With software titles like Mario Kart 7, Super Mario 3D Land and Sonic Generations out this year, on [...]
