Metro: Last Light

I would assume that most gamers out there have at least heard of Metro 33, a game developed by 4A Studios which is based on a novel by the same name. Well, in 2013 the second part of the Metro game series will be released, and the follow up is called Metro: Last Light. A few days ago the team behind Metro: Last Light released a cinematic shortfilm, called Entering the Metro, which I guess […]


38 Studios and its subsidary Big Huge Games, owned by Curt Schilling, a former professional baseball player and the developers of Kingdoms of Amalur are shutting down their business, which apparently happen already, at Thursday to be precise. As a direct result, about 400 people were laid off. Well anyway, considering Kingdoms of Amalur sold around 1.2 million copies, this may come as a surprise. But apparently the reason to why the company went under have […]


Well, for a long time I’ve been following the MOBA eSports scene a lot, but I’ve also spent quite some time around the Starcraft and Starcraft 2 community. But usually I don’t find the eSports news that interesting, although I managed to stumble upon an interview with EG.IdrA, which was posted on May 23, 2012, and I couldn’t really help it, I just had to write a post about it. And why would I take […]

DotA artwork

Some may ask themselves why I would sit down and write a post about this, well, the main reason is that it breaks my heart when I see people make their team fall over completely because of slight mechanical disadvantages. Obviously I do understand that some are new to the genre and don’t know everything yet, but there are cases where a little more focus on basic aspects of the game would help them do […]


The year was 1999 and the world had just seen Half-Life being released a few months earlier when the first version of Counter-Strike was released, but at this point it was more of a Half-Life mod. But as the community grew, it was remade into a stand alone game based on the original Half-Life engine. And it quickly turned into one of the pioneer games which built the road for eSports. Since Counter-Strike 1.6 was […]

DotA 2 Snow Ranger

Most gamers may recognize the name DotA, or Defence of the Ancients, while many may have played it, many have not. Well DotA was a map for Warcraft 3 based on a Starcraft map named Aeon of Strife. I can’t really remember who created the first version of it, but once IceFrog took over the development, the map got known around the Warcraft 3 community and the interest in it grew. At this point the […]


  Well, I guess the Diablo 3 release haven’t passed anyone by, it gave us antoher look into Blizzard’s way of handling releases, in other words, make people pay for a preorder which costs 15 – 20% more just to play at the release while the servers aren’t available untill 2 hours later, probably due to the fact that they didn’t spend enough money on server clusters. Well that and the complaining on the forums […]


In 2012 there will be a total of 5 major MMORPGs and two expansions to exsisting well known MMOs, and I figured we’d take a look at two of them, Wildstar and Archage to be precise. Comparing these two would be like night and day though, so we’ll simply focus on one at a time.   Not much is known about ArchAge yet, there was a closed beta schedualed for June 2010, but that was […]

Starcraft 2

This may not be any big news to some, but there has been some major new news about Heart of the Swarm. And if anyone is lucky enough to pass by MLG Anaheim you will be able to play a sneak peak beta version of the expansion there. None of the recently revealed changes will have anything to do with the races themselves really, it is a bunch of changes to the client itself, but there […]

Terran symbol

Well, we’re there, the final piece of the puzzle, the Terran part of this quick look at how to get out of the low leagues in SC2. As I see it, Terran was by far the easiest race to go with it the lower leagues, although, to master Terran is hard, if not the hardest race. The general idea as a Terran is to keep it simple, your basic bio units counter most builds, not […]
