Many online gamers think that a modded controller is mainly just a rapid fire controller. Hold down the trigger and you’ll be able to hit any cap on semi-automatic weapons without fail. They would be right, but they also would be missing a larger part of what modded controllers can be.
Where the Viking 360 Macro excels is the scope of it’s functionality.
Here we are in May. May is an odd month to me in terms of beer. We’re transitioning from winter to summer. I want something to help my seasonal palate
transition. So this month, I went with Tommy Knocker’s Hop Strike Black IPA. Black IPAs are a great style. They’re also called Cascadian Dark Ales, which is a way
more bad ass name, so that’s what I’m calling it from here on out. Cascadian Dark Ales are unique in that they have the malts of a porter (think chocolate and roast
notes) with a powerful kiss of IPA style hop flavor. It’s the “beerification” of my seasonal feelings during this time of year: dark and wintry with a smack of summer
flavor at the end.
So you haven't seen Iron Man 3 yet then go look at yourself in the mirror and ask yourself why not? It has everything your comic book loving heart would need to qualify this as a must see movie. Most important there's the mandatory Stan Lee cameo, there's the ultra-stimulating Pepper Pots ( Gwyneth Paltrow ), and a devious villain from the Marvel comics universe. Not enough? Toss in all the Iron Man / War Machine banter you can ask for plus plenty of extra cheesy one liners that feel ripped right out the comics, in a good way. This movie has all the elements to make you feel like you just made it home from school and opened up the latest issue. All that’s missing is a fruit punch flavored Hi-C and a bag of chips.
What if the above image was true?
Since the rumor of a Gears of War movie hit the stage back in 2009, fans were hoping to see the game come to life on the big screen. Originally set for a 2010 launch, the talks fell apart due to “creative differences” and the movie was shelved. Now, it looks like the film might just make it to reality.
The last time a game with DC comic book characters met up with Mortal Kombat influence, we were subjected to a rather dull, boring, and mainly bullshit game. Understandably it was an attempt to bring DC into the fighting game genre. We've had Marvel based fighting games for a long time, but any foray into the DC universe is met with a resounding failure. The more recent attempts at a DC universe game presence, such as the Batman: Arkham series seems to have put new life into a tired idea. What we get, is a rather pleasant surprise with NetherRealm Studios' Injustice: Gods Among Us.
We were approached by another Gears community website with some interview questions, so here's the Q&A we did with them for your reading pleasure.
What happens when the incorruptible become corrupted? What happens when those who vow to protect, become those who seek to rule? What happens when mortal men are thrust into the realm of gods? The story begins with Superman. Long known as the last son of Krypton, Superman is beyond joy as he realizes that his wife, Lois Lane, is pregnant with his unborn child. His people may not be lost after all, but more than that, Superman suddenly understands how important his family means to him. While he and Lois bask in the knowledge that they are going to have a child, Lois receives a hot tip on a news story. Superman, knowing how stubborn Lois is, grudgingly accepts that she is not going to stop being a reporter whether she is 9 minutes or 9 months pregnant.
To fully understand and appreciate Irrational Games' Bioshock Infinite it helps to have a basic understanding of alternate realities. The theory that at any point in time there are an infinite amount of parallel realities that can seem exactly the same or completely different. In one world you could be the opposite sex, you might never have been born, you might have children or have none. There are even possibilities that the dinosaurs never died out and human beings never existed. Even a choice as simple as what you had for breakfast 10 years ago could alter a path that leads to a world war. Okay, maybe not that drastic, but it is still a possibility. Bioshock Infinite takes that theory and turns it into a living world.
Gears of War Judgment and its new Playlist " Overrun " is here but so is the overrun at animal shelters around the US leaving new puppies and kittens along with other pets in need of a home quick. GZB is working with Nuka Customs on her idea to take the Overrun Playlist in Gears of War Judgement and turn it into a positive for our furry friends. So we have organized a 24Hr Charity Live Stream on our Twitch Ch. starting April 19th 4pm PST / 7pm EST in hopes to raise some money to help out " First Coast No More Homeless Pets ". An organization that is dedicated to helping find loving homes for animals that in some cases would otherwise never get a chance. So Fun, Gears ( and a few beers ), prizes and the satisfaction of knowing you made a difference in a furry little life the GZB way!
Gears of War: Judgment attempted to follow in the highly praised footsteps of its predecessors, but merely stumbled along behind it. Epic, partnering with People Can Fly, spent a lot of time tweaking the game so it would debut as a fresh idea to the series. The result was a game that felt too much like Gears, with just a few too many tweaks that left it falling flat. The core elements of the Gears series are still there. High powered weapons, bloodthirsty monsters, gore, death, and war. The main differences lie in the direction the game tried to take.
Franchise reboots are always controversial. Many gamers don't want to see their favorite games ruined by a new title. Others think the games are stale and need to come at a new angle. The unfortunate reality is that many reboots end up hurting a series rather than helping. Tomb Raider did this one right.
February is the infamous month containing one of the most hated of “holidays”: Valentine’s Day. Stupid Hallmark-made holidays don’t count for anything in my book. However, because of the whole chocolate filled heart craze that hits during this time of year, I always tend to see chocolate making its way into beer. And that, my fellow barley and hop enthusiasts, is the true reason for the season.
Mixing some Dubstep and Hip-Hop for the month of March.
Overrun was the only game type that was on display at the community event today and almost everything I write here will pertain to that mode, when it does not I will note otherwise. The only playable map during my play time was the map Estate ( I believe it was called that ). The map was some what open and it seemed to have that GOW1 look and feel IMO, I only got to play one match while some greedy kids played like 2-3 times ( I wanted to be that greedy kid ). I signed up at 6pm and didn't get to play until around 8:40pm, making me one of the last groups that got to play it. I'm gonna break down my experience and what I saw, but I may miss something while writing this so if you have any questions hit me up on the GZB forum. Some of the things I will write about might be new to you while some may not, lastly do not take what I say as gospel because Pete said things could change and some things might be from my perception.
Yesterday, Epic Games and Maxim Magazine announced a sponsored free DLC pack which includes 2 new maps, Haven and Citadel, and the return of a fan favorite gametype, Execution. With this news came a lot of celebration for fans who had feared the beloved gametype was lost for good. But was this is a bow to significant pressure through the last several months, or was this a long thought out strategy to gain last minute enthusiasm?
There are some games that just scream fun. Whether it's a racing game to blister your friends on the track, tear through opponents in some gory fighting games, or popping domes in online shooters, these games are pure enjoyment. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance can add itself among them.
When during the first 30 minutes of a game you come across a glitch that is so game breaking you literally have to wipe your hard drive of all related data concerning that game, you don't expect things to get much better. That is how my experience with Aliens: Colonial Marines started out. Less than 1/2 hour in and suddenly my character had no gun. It was not part of the dialogue area. It was not part of the mission where you can't fire. My character stood upright, hands out like he is holding a gun, and you saw nothing there. Not even starting a new game would fix it.
It's been many a year since I played a good old fashioned hack and slash game. However, a few things directly after the start up concerned me. Starting off a game where the protagonist is waking from a drunken stupor, surrounded by the fruits of his labor from the night before, always makes me a little wary about how this game will react around the main character. Usually the guy is a self-centered arrogant prick whose only care in life is sex, drugs, and rock n' roll. This game adopts that stereotype right off the bat if you replace rock n' roll with some badass killing potential.
Anyone who is a fan of the LEGO video games knows they are a decent puzzle plat-former. The games are aimed towards the younger generations, targeting children to young teens. Built around this premise, the objectives are straight forward and easily highlighted. The games are put together well, the controls handle nicely for the most part, and the formula stays pretty consistent throughout the games. Unfortunately, that consistency is what is slowly killing the franchise. With practically no innovation, the games are becoming a stale repetition with a setting and character roster change. The games may be advertised for kids, but there are a large amount of casual players that make up those sales figures. Eventually, the continuous use of that mediocre formula will simply cause the games to flop, and the time will come when relying on the low expectations of the consumer will be the end of the LEGO series.

When people envision the future, usually it involves flying cars, holograms, maybe some genetic manipulation that finally allows us to gain superhuman abilities. Not many stop to consider what it might hold in regards to warfare. The world does not grow slowly over time. We leap ahead in bursts of technological evolution. It took us 40 years to go from a calculator the size of a gymnasium wall, to a supercomputer we can fit in a drawer. In Black Ops II, we can do so much more. From gloves that can cling to any surface and support any weight, to holographic scopes that can see through walls, to body armor that can bend light to make you appear invisible, the future of warfare seems terrifying (and yet super cool) indeed.
Every year as the clock turns to midnight on December 31st, millions of people begin planning how “this year will be different,” in an attempt to better themselves. One of the greatest strengths of humanity is our constant desire for self- betterment. On the other hand, one of our greatest faults is our ability to fall into a comfort zone and spend the rest of our lives wishing for better. For example, ever notice how workout equipment sales go through the roof in the beginning of the year? Every single year, the number one resolution in the U.S. is weight loss. It’s this resolution that turns people to treadmills, crappy fake diet food plans, and gym memberships they’ll never use.
The recent shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary school has made many people consider that video games may be behind a large part of the violence in the world today. Emotions can run high after these horrific tragedies occur, and the desire to hold someone responsible can be overwhelming. However, even after the perpetrator behind the act is caught, the question everyone wants to have answered is: why?
As a history buff, Assassin's Creed has always appealed to me. Wars, conquerors, politics, mythology. I love it all and these games deliver it to me in new and exciting ways. Of course I know all of these games are historical fiction, however, the basis for all of these games are steeped in accurate portrayals of the world before us. This time Assassin's Creed III takes us from Europe to the Americas. North America and the soon-to-be United States of America to be precise.
What is beer? Go to your local bar and ask the first person you see. More than likely, they’ll be holding a run of the mill, whatever’s on special macro brew (think Bud, Miller, Coors, etc.) and they’ll probably answer with something along the lines of: “Beer is awesome, it gets me drunk!” Granted, they wouldn’t be wrong. In fact, they’d be with the majority of people in that train of thought. That’s why macro brews own so much market share. To me, however, their answer is about half-right. Beer is awesome. But it is so much more than a tool to lose your inhibitions.
