If you know me personally, then you know that i have spent well over 100 days /played in World of Warcraft throughout the last 5 years. I have a couple of the figurines, I have one of the graphic novels, i’ve bought in-game mounts and even although i’m currently unsubscribed as I have quite a lot of UNI work on my hands, nothing can take away my interest in all things WOW.
So today i read that David Bowie’s son (I love Bowie by the way) Duncan Jones has been signed on to direct the upcoming warcraft film. Now for those of you who are not aware of Duncan Jones, he directed this masterpiece.
All i’m saying is, I CAN’T WAIT for this film which is slated for a 2015 release.
A new game has recently appeared on kickstarter called “Roam” from an Ex Gas Powered Games artist Ryan Sharr.
The game’s tagline is “Scavenge. Build. Fight Survive” and from the “prototype video” on kickstarter the fighting and surviving is well explained.
At the time of writing this “Roam” has already hit it’s $40,000 goal and currently sits at $56,441 and now has several other goals. Drivable vehicles will be added to the game, It now also includes a player skill system and will no doubt hit the other targets with 20 days left to go.
The game is about your usual zombies tearing the place up but instead of being in a set map like diablo and path of exiles you have the freedom to explore the map in which ever way you feel is best as it is open plan.
The game will force you to fine food, water and tools. You will have to build barricades and forts to defend yourself as well as finding “improvised” weapons to survive the incoming onslaught of brain hungry fiends.
My first opinion of this game is that it is aspiring to take tower defence games to a whole new level and that is something i’m happy to see having spent too many hours playing the most basic of flash tower defence games to numb boredom. The game will also but much more interesting if you are playing with friends as it will support 3 friends to join you in the impending death that one would assume comes with killing zombies day in day out.
If this sounds like the kind of game you would be interested in then head on over to their kickstarter page to check them out and watch the prototype video, for only $15 dollar you get early Beta access and full access to the game when it comes out.
In an attempt to stop the spam on the site I’ve had to change the comments to require sign in.
Please note however that these comments are not monitored in any way, I was however fed up seeing casino links in the comments section.
I’m having issues with rendering videos for the youtube channel, this is why there are only 2 videos uploaded currently.
I really want to do more videos but I think it may have to wait until summer when I upgrade the CPU on my PC.
I also wont settle for anything less than 720p video quality as I know that if I was looking at someone’s site i wouldn’t settle for less than 720p.
Things have been progressing slowly at a pace I am currently happy with but plans are still being put in place to develop this news website further.
I currently haven’t put any effort into the tech side of things on the site which is starting to bug me but I can only do so much.
I have also given up WOW which should allow slightly more time to focus on this site and provide more news updates for the time being.
I promise nothing though, cause I can see myself being back just in time to drown in dinosaurs.
If you are keen to participate in a blog and would like to write the tech side of the site for me then please send an email to the following address.

All applicants will require to submit 3 pieces of work and an estimate of how many hours work they can contribute to the site weekly.

We are 3 weeks into the new year and managed to somehow survive the impending doom that came with the end of the world in December last year. It’s already time to start looking at the games which are deemed a success from 2012. So while you are packing away your fluorescent zombie knifes, flashlights and fire extinguishers have a look at which games you might have talked yourself out of buying this year, because they still want you to play them and now they have awards backing up how good they are. (They are also most likely cheaper than they were when you talked yourself out of them last year)
