A Video Gamers Digest
Video Games are a unique media that are enjoyed by people, both young and old worldwide. Adults, teens, and kids all play games to escape to a fantasy world, educate themselves, get up and dance or just socialize with friends.
My aim in creating Games News Network is to build a place where I could show others all the great games, media and news that come out of the industry. It's all about giving back to an industry that has given gamers so much.
My Eminent Return
Hello there, if you're reading this you've probably noticed that I haven't done a posting in quite some time. There's a reason for that. Let me explain.
You see over the past few months I've been busy, with a lot of different things. So much so that I haven't been able to sit down and write a blog post or even put a few hours towards my favorite game(s). For starters I moved into a new position at work with a lot more responsibility and workload. Right after that I started looking into a new house while trying to release a Sci-Fi book I wrote and plan my upcoming wedding. I'm now have my own place with two weeks remaining for said wedding. Most would say that's quite a lot and yes I would agree but I wouldn't change anything that's happened in the past few months.
But now that all these major life changes will soon be behind me I plan to throw myself back into the fray with games, blogs and my writing. How do I plan to do that? Well I've pre-ordered this beast to help:
Yes that is exactly what it looks like. The Halo 5, 1 TB Xbox One. It's so lovely. Currently I don't have any of the current gen consoles and this will be the first I get. Words cannot express how excited I am to get this. More so than getting married in a few days (if my to be wife reads this, she'd have a few words about that). I'm looking forward to playing some great games with amazing graphics and gameplay and getting lost in unknown worlds with unknown heroes.
I know what you're thinking. I won't have time to play much with a wife and house that will take up all my attention, but the best thing about my wife, she's a gamer. So she can join me on some of my adventures and I can't wait. With what I've seen in terms of games coming out in the next few months [not to mention the several dozen that will soon be backwards compatible], we have a lot of options for co-op play.
With that said getting back to writing about games and playing them will be a nice change of pace. I hope everyone that reads this will come back as I begin a new adventure in life and with video games. It should be fun.
One thing you can more than expect from a BioWare game is a gripping story. One that is both memorable and really makes the player experience a range of emotions. That same can be expected from Anthem , their upcoming game. This Story trailer talks about all the people you'll meet during the course of your game and how interacting with them can change your story. Your choices have consequences. This is how you make the game yours. Anthem is set to be released early next year and if you're like me, you can't wait to play it either. ==== Courtesy of Games News Network
As a consumer society we like, need and want different things and with a variety of options getting them can easily be achieved. When you apply this to the video game industry you get games in the various versions, from Regular to Limited Editions, to Collector’s and Deluxe Editions. In addition to these editions, retailers often take it upon themselves to offer pre-order incentives. Pre-Ordering will give you access to a specific item, weapon or accessory, a discount or some other incentive that is unique to the store to get customer to buy from that retailer. In 2011 we saw several games receive the incentives treatment and a few that received retailer specific incentives. Its now 2012 and retailers are back at it again. Mass Effect 3 and Prototype 2 have both been given retailer specific incentive months before their launch and you can guarantee a lot more will follow. As a result, gamers have to choose the incentive they really want but not necessarily from their regular retaile
I want to start a weekly series of discussion post where a topic is picked and we have an open discussion of our thoughts and opinions. I have a few topics in mind but I open the floor to suggestions. In the video game industry, today's games usually have several modes unique to them. Two of those modes, single-player and multiplayer have become a norm for most game. Single-player is all about experiencing the story behind the game, watching beautifully rendered cut scenes and getting to know the main character(s). Multiplayer on the other hand is all about interacting with multiply players across the world while adhering to the game world and mechanics. There are a variety of different multiplayer game types, players may individually compete against two or more human contestants, work cooperatively to achieve a goal, or engage in a game type that incorporates any combination mentioned above. In the past few years the line between the two modes have started to blur, you can
