Guild Wars 2 intial impressions

Let me first preface this post by saying that this is the first MMO game I have ever played.  So most of this post will be from a "noob" perspective.  There are a few reasons I decided to check this game out, first was because I kinda got into Skyrim, and figured that a multi-player co-op version of this would be interesting, and a couple of my good gaming friends were going to get the game, so I figure it would help ease the learning curve a bit.  I also liked the competitive aspect of the game, the whole server vs server vs server, or as they call it WvWvW.  Last, and most important reason is because Guild Wars 2 does not have a monthly subscription fee really drove me to give this gaming genre a try.

Fall 2012 Preview

2012 is winding down, and we approach what is usually the busiest time for video game releases.  Of the list below, I'm obviously getting Black Ops 2, and Borderlands 2.  Assassin's Creed 3 will get a pre-order for sure.  I am considering Halo 4, even though I've only played ODST and Reach.  Dishonored & 007 Legends might get a buy as well if the reviews are good.  Forza Horizon and Need For Speed Most Wanted are also possibilities.

Diablo 3 - 1.04 patch preview thoughts

So the developers at Blizzard just released more details of what the next patch to Diablo 3 will include.  This time around, there's a new mechanic added to the game, as well as some wholesale changes to many things that are already in the game.  Here are some of my thoughts about the changes.

Black Ops 2 - Multiplayer Details - My thoughts

A lot of information has been released now for Black Ops 2 Multiplayer, and there's a lot of changes made this time around.  I'm going to try to condense it all down here for you since I felt that there's a few things that each individual source has missed or did not go into detail as much on what I wanted to know.

The Sources:

This is the main article I will refer to in this blog, as well as the TmarTn and Woody's Gamertag youtube channels.  Those two guys are pretty much the top two youtube sources for anything Call of Duty (in my opinion).  So with this in mind.. here goes.

Black Ops 2 Multiplayer Reveal Trailer is here!

Initial thoughts

Looks like they added an e-sports multiplayer function that allows for in-game commentary.  By the looks of it, its going to be a live thing and not just an add-on to the theatre mode.
