Five, No, Four Ways ESO Pushed me Back to WoW

Posted June 4, 2014 By Jim Franklin

ESO Wave Goodbye LeavingI have played Elder Scrolls Online since it was released at the start of April, but a few days ago I cancelled my subscription, and re-subscribed back to World of Warcraft. I think I always knew I would go back to WoW, but my love of the Elder Scrolls series lead me to believe that Elder Scrolls Online would hold my attention for more than two months, but there were four things that pushed me back into the warm and loving arms of Azeroth.

Skara – the Blade Remains Kickstarter

Posted June 4, 2014 By Jim Franklin

Skara the blade remains logoI’m not really one for player vs. player gaming, I much prefer collaborative play, working towards common goals, and loving your fellow-man and all that hippie stuff. Although I know that there are huge amounts of you out there that would much rather tear out the entrails of your PvP enemies, and claim victory over those you feel are unworthy. Well, Skara – The Blade Remains just might be right up your alley.

Skara – The Blade Remains combines the best features of MOBA’s (Multiplayer online battle arenas) and RPG’s plus they’re throwing in huge amounts of violent combat in there as well. The developers strongly believe that Skara – The Blade Remains will revolutionize the free-to-play online PVP scene when it releases on Steam Early Access this July.

Valve Steam Home Streaming LogoDo you have a real beast of a gaming computer but a lap-top so crap that it scarcely functions as a word-processor and long for a laptop with the gaming capacity of your desktop? Do you want a lap-top that can deal with Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on full spec, without having to fork out a grand for the privilege? You do? Well I suggest you head to Steam and take a look at their new wonder of In-Home Streaming.

Jungle Rumble Freedom, Happiness & Bananas Review

Posted May 21, 2014 By Jim Franklin

Jungle Rumble LogoI’ve posted about Jungle Rumble Freedom, Happiness & Bananas a couple of times now. Jungle Rumble being a rhythm / strategy game in which you guide a young bunch of heroic and well-meaning monkeys to defend their bananas from a nasty, and ne’er-do-well rival monkey troop. Jungle Rumble is also a level in Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex but that’s not important, just a free bit of info for you.

I downloaded the Jungle Rumble: Freedom, Happiness & Bananas app, launched it and gave it a darn good playing. First of all, here’s a game-play video which will give you a good idea of what Jungle Rumble is about

Battlefy logo screen themeNews hot off the press. Well, it was hot off the press a few days ago. Now, it’s a sort of luke-warm, tepid temperature. It’s still not cold off the press which I think is important here. Where was I? Battlefy, is one of the most trusted multi-player platforms responsible for things such as Might & Magic, DoC, Road2Paris, Championships, the American Open Qualifier for The Summit, the Gottacon LoL Championships, Dota Peru Championships, North American Dota SECS, High School StarLeague, and Razer’s LoL Clash. A lot of stuff basically.

With time constraints as they are I am going to have to leave you in the warm, soft comforting hands of the below press release, there’s always the official website as well. What? I know, I’m lazy but I’ve got a load of stuff on, and I really want to sink into an ice-cold SC.

Jungle Rumble LogoLawks a mercy! It was over two months since I told you about Jungle Rumble: Freedom, Happiness and Bananas (previously known as Jungle Rumble. That’s kinda spooky seems like yesterday. Anyway, thought it was only fair to let you know that it has now been released. Last Thursday in fact was the lucky date.

Unsure whether you want to commit to getting it? No problem, either click on the link above that I was so gracious in including or read below for snippets of info, the trailer, the odd screenshot and the press release which should have everything in there to help you make up your mind.

If you already know you want it, you can go straight to the apple store by clicking on this link here.
