Batman Arkham Knight video review

Alana Evans plays and reviews Batman Arkham Knight on the Xbox One console. While the game is absolutely awesome, playing it one the Xbox One was a terrible choice. The game froze repeatedly, which was incredibly annoying. Thankfully, the save feature is pretty accurate, so I was able to continue my game play close to where it locked up.

The Technomancer at Gamescon 2015

technoheader
In this video, supported by music from renowned composer Olivier Derivière (Remember Me, Assassin’s Creed IV – Freedom Cry…) who composes the game’s Soundtrack, we watch our hero Zachariah attempting to communicate with Earth, as he is chased by Mars’ illusive secret police, tasked with hunting down the rogue Technomancer across the post-apocalyptic red planet. A relic of Mars’ ancient human history, your journey with Zachariah starts long after human colonization of Mars, with its artifacts sprawled about the Martian landscape — including hordes of humans physically scarred by cataclysms of the past.

Mars’ world holds many secrets, and The Technomancer’s quests yield many results depending on how you choose to solve them. Learn more about the world by interacting with the companions who join your party, and level them up as you build friendships with them. An RPG, The Technomancer features three exciting combat styles and many ways to improve both melee combat and your Technomancer lightning abilities, intertwined with the melee combat in the game.

Brand New Video! Mortal Kombat battle on SPEED!

Some of the best old school fighting games gave you the option to enter a code to change up the game play. Some codes gave you special abilities while others might change the look of your characters. I was capturing some footage from the last Mortal Kombat, and we entered some awesome codes we discovered. This battle video with Sonya Blade and Liu Kang, and the code we entered, actually sped up the game play! It’s quite hilarious! Enjoy the video and subscribe to our Youtube page!

Alana Evans live streams with the Avenger Controller Reflex!

51-300x199This past week was quite eventful! Our friends with Avenger, the controller mod company, sent us their brand new product to have some fun with! I did a live video stream using their product on Thursday, and it was posted through a great website, Vidfall. After receiving my package, I couldn’t wait to open it up and test it out! The Avenger Reflex is an adapter that attaches to your Xbox One or Ps4 controller. With the snap of a few pegs, you transform your controller into a weapon of mass destruction.

With unique triggers and positioning, the Avenger Reflex allows you to incorporate the use of other fingers to push your active buttons and free up your right thumb to stay on the directional stick. While this may sound like no big deal, using the Avenger Reflex gives you far more control over your character’s or weapon abilities. While it comes with a learning curve, mastering of the adapter won’t take long.

During my live stream for the Avenger Controller’s Twitch page, I played three different styles of games. First off was Batman Arkham Knight for some hero ass kicking and Batmobile driving. While I struggled a bit playing the new Harley Quinn storyline, simply because I was playing without sound, I killed it playing as Batman. The Avenger Reflex gave me so much more control over the Batmobile, which has been a struggle for gamers to operate. Switching from X to Y for combos during the fight sequences was so fast, I could hardly keep up! That’s definitely a good thing!

My second attempt with the Avenger Reflex was one of my favorite first person shooters, Borderlands The Prequel. I wanted to show off the speed and chaos the Avenger Reflex adds to game play. With the rubber straps under your controller adapter, your trigger speed is enhanced and perfected with the flick of your middle finger. It seems quite appropriate for blasting Scavs and Lunatics.

Finally, I wrapped up the two hour stream session by getting my butt kicked in some Mortal Kombat X. This is where that learning curve comes into play. All fighting fans know that winning is all about the combos! Because I was clearly thinking too much about my other fingers landing combos, I basically sucked, LOL! Who am I kidding. It was straight murder on my soul haha. I love fighting games. They are my hidden weakness. So needless to say, my current goal is to practice more with the Avenger Reflex AND redeem myself. It will happen!

After spending some real time playing with the Avenger Reflex on my Xbox One, I’ve gotta say I love it! I’m looking forward to using it more, and perfecting my skill! Be sure to check out their website, follow Avenger on Twitter, check out Vidfall, and watch the recorded stream! Here are a few cips from the stream. Visit our LIVE SHOWS page to see them all!

Competitive dungeon crawler party game Dungeon League hits Early Access on July 24

dungeonleaguelogoFrom Surprise Attack Games and Achebit-
Dungeon League takes everything that is awesome about dungeon crawling and spews it out as 10 minutes of chaotic, multiplayer, party-game action. Up to four players take to the procedurally generated dungeon to battle each other (and hordes of enemies) in a series of two minute rounds pulled at random from a stack of wildly different Quests such as Deathmatch, Capture the Flag or Witch’s Eye. The first to claim three rounds is crowned the Champion of the Dungeon League.

In between rounds, the heroes rapidly level up based on how well they performed in the dungeon, spending skill points on unlocking new spells and abilities. They then blow all their gold on magical items at the shop.

Having developed Dungeon League for over a year with extensive testing at events, Achebit and Surprise Attack Games are bringing a highly polished slice of the game to Early Access to build a larger community, gather feedback to help with balancing as well as player-input on new content. Achebit have committed to extensive content additions before the final launch and are planning two brand new co-operative modes (Gauntlet and Survival), an additional competitive mode (Dungeon Ball), more Quests for Tournament mode plus more characters, monsters, items and dungeon sets.

HIGHLIGHTS:
Local multiplayer dungeon crawling party game

Quick fire tournaments consisting of two minute rounds

Rapidly level up your character between rounds

All the RPG tropes – warriors, rogues, wizards, goblins, dwarves, unicorns!

Releasing into Early Access on Friday July 24, 2015 for PC, Mac and Linux

Full release on PC, Mac, Linux and consoles planned for mid-2016

Robin Williams’ daughter, Zelda, tapped for King’s Quest game!

Kingsquest9
Written By- Alana Evans July 22, 2015
It is common practice these days for video game developers to bring on famous actors to perform voices for characters in video games. Many of our favorite actors often make the leap into voice acting because video games make a ton of money, and it can be exciting for gamers to play and listen to their favorites. Many actors love video games themselves, so I’m sure they love the chance to be featured in their favorite titles. Some go as far as naming their children after their favorite characters. One of the world’s favorite comedians, the late Robin Williams, named his daughter Zelda, after his favorite Nintendo title. Well the love for gaming in the Williams’ family has taken a new turn! Zelda Williams has been brought on to voice a character in the upcoming release, King’s Quest : A Knight to Remember. She voices the character Amaya Blackstone. The game also features Christopher Lloyd, Wallace Shawn, Tom Kenny, Josh Keaton, and Maggie Elizabeth Jones.

The famed series of games, King’s Quest, has been brought back to life thanks to Activision Blizzard and The Odd Gentlemen. When Activision announced they were bringing back Sierra Games, after acquiring the rights, they reached out to The Odd Gentlemen to revamp the popular game. While the new title isn’t a sequel or a remake, you walk through memory lane with King Graham as he tells his life story to his grand daughter, Gwendolyn.

The trailer gives you a tease of the beautiful animation, but it is tough to decipher actual gameplay. There will be new episodes released on a set schedule, with the first episode released on July 28 for PC, PS3, and PS4.  Xbox fans get their release July 29. Check out the trailer below!
