“Attention prisoners! For your crimes against Oriath, you have been Exiled to the forsaken continent of Wraeclast. The magisters of Oriath are merciful and have granted all exiles one weapon.. choose wisely. Oriath has bestowed a gift upon you, a chance to redeem your crimes.. A new life. Do not squander it.
Swim straight to the shore, stay together, look for others who can help you. You’re not the first exiles, and you won’t be the last.” Continue Reading
When it comes to the latest and greatest in gaming hardware for the PC, I try very hard to keep up. Having had so much success with the GameCom 377, I decided it was time for an upgrade and purchased the GameCom 780.
As far as headsets go, I could not ask for more than what the GameCom 780 delievers.
Comfort wise, the GameCom 780 is great for extended use. With its lightweight and padded ear cushions, I’ve found myself able to listen to music and play no games with minimal discomfort.
This headset also offers crystal clear sound quality with its noise-cancelling mic, which is always an amazing thing when you are a raid leader with a noisy roommate. As an added bonus, the GameCom 780 also offers Dolby Digital 7.1 Surround Sound, a great feature when playing first person shooters when knowing what direction you are being shot from is essential. The cable strength is also a plus, as I am one who tends to forget I am wearing a headset and have, on more than one occasion, broken cables by walking away from my desk with my headset still on.
Overall, the GameCom 780 is an amazing headset with amazing sound and voice quality, and at $79.99, you really can’t beat the price for a great quality product.
Feeling a bit of creativity lately, I thought it would be nice to get a new perspective on games. Everyone has their personal favorites. For me, its the Shining Force Saga. However, I’ve wanted to put a little more focus on what everyone else enjoys. So, to our readers:
What is your ALL time favorite game and Why?
Please feel free to email me at the email address below with your favorite game, and I will feature it in an upcoming post!
Its been some time since I’ve written anything game related, so, I figured I’d return with a game that is nearly as old as I am and has been one of my favorite games since it has been out. In fact, I just finished playing it again.
For many, the mention of an arcade throws us into a nostalgic look back on gaming. From the days of Pac-Man and the original Mortal Kombat and Tekken, the arcade is something that any gamer will always appreciate. Despite the popularity with the gaming community, however, due to the ease of access and the affordability of gaming consoles, many arcades fell to the wayside and closed. Continue Reading
For those of you who love killing zombies, are a fan of the horror genre, or remember the cheesy live action scenes of Resident Evil 1, be prepared! The trailer for Resident Evil Six has arrived and it is nothing less than epic. The question is what type of game will Resident Evil 6 be; a horror survival or a third person action game?
This week the long awaited Starhawk beta has finally been released to Playstation Plus users! Looks like it could be really good!

Oh yeah and Amy released but you don’t want to buy that, and I very seriously mean that, DO NOT BUY AMY! Continue Reading
If you have not turned your 3DS on in a while (why not, there are plenty of good titles for it) or if you have simply not let it connect to the net in a while, now is a good time to do so.
Due to poor sales of the console and subsequent price drop (though frankly I don’t see that they were bad) Nintendo are offering 20 classic NES and GBA titles free to download to early adopters, being anyone who first performed a system update before 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on Aug. 11, 2011.
While you may have no interest in many of them there must be something in there for most people, I mean who can say no to Mario and not one but three Zelda games (including the Minish Cap)? The complete list is included below. All you have to do to get them (assuming you are eligible) is open the store select settings/other go to your download history where you will find they have been added to your account for download. The complete list of titles is below the cut.
In September, Blizzard Entertainment began sending out closed Beta Testing invites for the highly anticipated Diablo III. While it seems there have been a rather limited number of these highly sought after beta invites, I have been fortunate enough to have a friend ( thanks again Mike!) who has been kind enough to allow me to watch him play the game in order to write this series of content previews for the GTN readers!

Furries will destroy all!
Over the years games have lost all the fun through story, physics and all the things that are “quality”. There were times where a person could just sit down with their controller and screw around for the fun of it but this is not a common habit within games of the present. Now in these boring, sad times we must face the raging online gamers and stunning linear story lines. Thank Saints Row: The Third has come to save is with hilarious story, hilarious gameplay, hilarious physics!….oh did I mention it was hilarious? Continue Reading
