I made a little beginners guide to help get new people st...

If you look at the reviews or ask fellow gamers, for all intents and purposes Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor is a good game. There are many reasons as to why it’s good. Gameplay, graphics, etc. but to me the stand out feature, without a doubt, is the nemesis system. For those of you that don’t know what it is I suggest checking out a video or reading this...


My First 90 minutes with the Defiance beta.

Posted by Calinks, 22 March 2013 - - - - - - · 349 views

Wrote this a couple of days back because I thought the NDA was lifted. It isn't until today so I can finally post these first impressions.

Thought I'd share my brief experience with the beta. I started playing soon after it was available this morning.

After the initial tutorial/mission, I'm dropped into the world at a location I assume everyone beg...


My First 90 minutes with the Defiance beta.

Thought I'd share my brief experience with the beta. I started playing soon after it was available this morning.

After the initial tutorial/mission, I'm dropped into the world at a location I assume everyone begins at. Immediately I see a number of other Ark Hunters, most of us spend a few seconds looking each other over. I quickly realized I was t...


Gaming with the 3DS when you prefer more Western games...?

Posted by Calinks, 23 February 2013 - - - - - - · 402 views

So during the Black Friday craze, I purchased a 3DS. Now my main reason for getting this was actually for my younger brother, he is autistic and love old school SNES/Sega Genesis games. I saw that the 3Ds has a lot of old school platformers and simple 3D platformers like Super Mario.

With that said, I still would like to get some enjoyment out of the sys...

You will never see me place a pre-order with Toys R Us again.

Posted by Calinks, 11 September 2011 - - - - - - · 475 views

Maybe I have just been spoiled by Amazon and their two day shipping/release day shipping but man... I per-ordeered Driver: San Francisco and I still haven't gotten the game. Checked the tracking today and they said to expect in on the 16th! This almost isn't worth the 12 bucks I saved by buying there. Never again Toys R Us, never again.


For me, something is being lost with these games trying to streamline certain aspects

Posted by Calinks, 14 July 2011 - - - - - - · 312 views

Seems like today's game are all about making things faster and simpler. Of course there are huge benefits to this but as a person who enjoys content and messing around with it, I feel like something is missing with these moves.

A couple of examples:

Mass Effect 2. Now, most people enjoy the fact that we only get a set number of guns in the sequel a...


Calinks' Videogame Rental Power Rankings!

Posted by Calinks, 17 May 2011 - - - - - - · 350 views

I am a big time renter. I rent a lot of games and usually only buy the ones I think will be the best of the best, cheap, or very long. With that said, I play some games some people might try to avoid.

Although I believe not all games are on the same level as far as overall quality goes, I find myself enjoying some "lesser" games more than the blockbuste...
