INFESTER “To the Depths, in Degradation” death metal re-release review and youtube stream

Re-releases of “best kept secret” type of old bands, usually package attractively mediocre quality content using 80’s/90’s nostalgia and vinyl fetishism. Even when the music is good, most such bands were mere clones back at the day, therefore their (re-) Read more

Posted on by Vassago in Gaming, PC | Leave a comment

Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is a new world adventure game where a resurrected fighter (you) is looking to avenge the death of his beloved ones by going into a massacre spree against ORCs, Uruk and other creatures known by the LOTR fantasy world. While I am not a huge fan of the particular lore, nor the movie/books, the amazing graphics, movement and combat features, finishing combo moves and flexibility in building your own weapons with abilities and runes made me to purchase the game.

I spent a couple of hours exploring 3-4 different areas and will give you some tips that will hopefully save you time and help you progress faster. So without any delays here are some brief tips for those who start the game now: Read more

Extreme music and video games, Jon Chang’s passions are at the core of what Legacy Future represents. Involved in the music scene since an early age, he’s been the singer of seminal grindcore act Discordance Axis. His lyrics were deeply influenced by science fiction, video games, anime and mangas.

After D.A.’s demise, he continued to offer  quality music for a decade  via his new bands Gridlink and Hayaino Dasuki, while at the same time developing concepts, graphic novels and games via Echelon Software and the Black Powder Red Earth series.

Jon having recently announced his retirement from the music scene, which ended in a bang with the final Gridlink album, “Longhena”, we grabbed him up for a quick chat, catching up about his past and current endeavours.

What did the Battlefield Hardline leaked trailer show us

Posted on by Vassago in F.P.S, Gaming | Leave a comment

As we were waiting impatiently for the next Battlefield release, a version of a seven minute trailer video was leaked titled “Hardline”.

Ten seconds into the video and it was as if I were watching the new “Grand Theft Auto” trailer. Things became a bit clearer around 00:30 when I noticed all familiar maps and guns from the latest BF4 release, which is cool but the new concept is all about war on crime (!?) instead of war on a Battlefield. I have to say right off the bat that I was not sure that a Cops vs Criminals concept was really missing from the Battlefield blockbuster, especially one where the story line is about the ethical dilemma of good cops thinking of turning bad the moment they face a mountain of drug stock worth a couple of million pounds. This would be a hard one to pull off and I can already visualise people being hesitant as to if this is a step towards the right direction or not for Battlefield. I will leave this out for the time being, as it will come down to personal preferences (some people will be happy, others won’t, and some will buy and play it anyway).

Call Of Duty: Ghosts past-gen multiplayer review (PS3).

Posted on by panos.agoros in F.P.S, Gaming | Leave a comment

The smoothest past-gen online C.O.D. experience and the odyssey of a console F.P.S. enthusiast.

Call Of Duty: Ghosts has been criticized for not bringing meaningful changes to the series at the threshold of next-gen, even for being more conservative and a step back from the previous installment, Black Ops II – which is true. What the critics have failed to remark, probably because they have not spent enough time online on the Playstation Network and Xbox Live, is that from now on the online C.O.D. experience is mostly based on dedicated servers. And that changes almost everything …
