One of our friends has wrote a song dedicated to DOTA player quite sometime ago (Hoping she’s also wrote a song for our Animal Crossing Malaysia facebook group). The song was nice (at least for me), and I always admire people that wrote their own songs. Enjoy.Read More
It seems we’ve gotten more than our share of LEGO games as of late. The plastic bricks even hit the big screen this year, followed by the prerequisite video game tie-in. One would think all of this exposure would burn out gamers on the franchise, and yet the games still provide enough enjoyment to make us dive into each and every entry. The latest title, LEGO The Hobbit, is no exception, as it provides the same fun gameplay as previous titles, with a couple of tweaks and one of the most coherent narratives of the series. The narrative hews very closely to its source material, that being the first two Hobbit films from director Peter Jackson, An Unexpected Journey and The Desolation of Smaug...Read More
Not an especially big week for any major releases, although there is a variety for gamers to choose from. PS4 users can finally jump into Final Fantasy XIV Online: A Realm Reborn. The Oscar nominated Philomena hits home video, along with the remake The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and the buddy comedy Ride Along. Wally Pfister, longtime collaborator with Christopher Nolan, makes his directorial debut on the big screen with the sci-fi thriller Transcendence. And out ahead of Earth Day (April 22) Disneynature brings us the new film Bears. Going to change the look of things a little bit this week, tell us in the comments what you think. As always, release dates are subject to change. Here we go!

Final Fantasy XIV Online: A Realm Reborn
Tuesday, April 15, 2014
2K Games and Firaxis have announced the next step in the Civilization series. Take a look at the announcement trailer below.
Picking up after your spaceship launches at the end of Civilization V, Civilization: Beyond Earth puts you in charge of colonizing an alien world and building a new home for humanity. The concept is a familiar one, and some players may think of 1999′s Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri. But this game is not a sequel or just an expansion pack, as it’s designed to be its own standalone game. The game will switch from the traditional and linear tech tree that has been used in past Civilization games to a more open ended Tech-web system. David McDonough, the game’s co-lead designer, explains.
“We’re huge fans of sci-fi from every part of pop culture and history, so we went to t...Read More
Telltale Games The Wolf Among Us has now reached its halfway mark. To date, the series has matched that of The Walking Dead Season One in quality, even with sadly being marred by the same continuing technical issues on the console versions. The noirish tale of murder in Fabletown has thus far proved to be highly engrossing, with the lead character of Bigby Wolf proving to be an engaging and likeable hero of sorts. The story has had its share of twists and turns through the first two chapters, and contains a cast of well defined characters based on Bill Willingham’s excellent Vertigo comics series Fables. While Episode 2- Smoke and Mirrors was primarily setting the stage for things to come, it still held your interest throughout, even though the overall plot didn’t progress all that much...Read More

If you answered yes to any (or all, in this writer’s case), then SMITE by Hi-Rez Studios, is a game you must try.
Smite is a MOBA game (MOBA is short for Multiplayer Online Battle Arena), similar to those of DOTA2, League of Legends, Heroes of Newerth and many more. Smite offers a refreshing new experience because of its controls and camera view. Instead of an over world view of the map, Smite utilizes a close third person camera view, making this MOBA feels like you’re in the action itself. You move with the ASWD buttons instead of right clicking your mouse over and over as a waypoint for your hero or champion to move to...Read More
