Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Gameplay Trailer and Screens Here

Middle-Earth-Shadow-Of-Mordor-2014-Game

Monolith Productions and WB Games, finally released some game-play footage for their new Lord of the Rings based game, Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor. This is looking kind of like a cross between Batman Arkham Asylum and Assasins Creed, but in the Lord of the Rings universe. I highly recommend taking a look at the new gameplay walk-through video below, as it is looking like a really cool idea.


With Monolith behind the production I have very high hopes for this game, Monolith has created some of my favorite games( Shogo M.A.D, No One Lives Forever, F.E.A.R, and Alien VS Predator 2), and they always seem to create very polished, well playing games. I will be keeping a close eye on this one, but for now, take a look at these screenshots below.

No word on a release date yet, but it is in production for the Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. More info can be found Here.

Razer Announces Project Christine Concept, Looks To Make The PC Modular

razer-christine-06

Have you ever wished that you could just go to the store and buy a new CPU, RAM, or GPU and then just go home and plug it in like a USB or something and not have to worry about opening up your PC, and getting all down and dirty inside it? Or maybe wish you could just do that and not have to call that techie friend to come help you put it all together? Well Razer has thought these same things, and has come up with this very interesting modular design concept.

The Idea here is that you buy the “spine” and then you buy the components you want to add to your PC; such as CPU, RAM, GPU, and hard drives as modules. Then you take these modules home, plug them into the “Spine” and voilà you just built your PC. Later on when you realize that maybe you want some more RAM or a better GPU (or maybe a Second one), you go to the store, purchase the GPU module you want, take it home and plug it in, simple as that.

Each module is sealed and completely self contained and features noise canceling, as well as active liquid cooling. They claim that by using this design it will be safe to overclock and not void any warranties.

The thought here, is that by buying into the “spine” you can simply upgrade your system as needed, very easily, so easily in fact, anyone can do it by just plugging in a new module of their choosing. Thus negating the need to replace entire systems and not having to have to get down into the nitty gritty of the system, which for some people also means that they can do it themselves instead of calling that friend to come do it for them.

For now, Razer’s Project Christine is a concept, but if Razer has shown us anything these last few years, it is that when they see an idea take off, they can make it happen.

I think this is a very interesting idea and assuming the cost isn’t insane, I think this is a great idea, especially for friends/family that would love to game on a PC but are to concerned about upgrading and tinkering. For them this would be a great solution to that problem, as when they are no longer able to play new games, they can go in and swap whatever components they need to in order to be current again. I will definitely be keeping an eye on this concept in the future, and here is hoping we see them actually make it happen.

MS titanfall ad

Microsoft has released their newest Xbox One video Ad this morning, and in it they seem to remember that the Xbox One plays games. It’s a good video showcasing the gaming and media features of the Xbox One. I won’t lie though, it seems oddly similar to the Sony PS4 Video Here. But compared to the previous Xbox One Commercial, this is definitely a step in the right direction. Take a look at the trailer below and let us know what you guys think.


The Xbox One is slated to be released on Nov 22.

Today Valve has released a video of the Steam Controller in action. In the following video you can see the controller being used for Portal 2, Civilization 5, Counterstrike Global Offensive, and Finally in Papers Please; an Indie title. They are showing off how versatile the controller is across a wide range of games, some of which you wouldn’t normally think to use a controller for. Take a look below.


The Steam Controllers will be heading out to 300 lucky beta testers later this year, take a look at what they get to play with.

A very interesting way to look at the used game issue.

Used Games banner

The issue of used video games is a big one right now. Everyone is up in arms about it, due to the fact that the new generation of consoles is right around the corner, and they have yet to announce how this is going to work. I came across this video earlier and I thought it brought up some very good points. While I am not sure if I agree with all of it, I think the author pretty much nails it on the head, in explaining why, when it comes to video games, used games are a real issue. Take a look at this video below and feel free to tell me what you think in the comments.
