Grinding Gear Games began their official Open Beta testing for Path of Exile this week (Jan 23). For those who are unfamiliar with the name, Path of Exile is your typical dungeon crawler based Adventure RPG. At first glance, the game seems very similar to Blizzard’s Diablo series, but don’t be dissuaded by this. Path of Exile is the game that Diablo 3 should have been and has far surpassed most of my expectations when I first began playing in the Closed Beta.
For more information on the game, head on over to Pathofexile.com and check out their news feed. The Open Beta is also free, so don’t hesitate to download the game and check it out!
Grinding Gear Games has spent countless hours doing their best to make a truly unique game and one of their most unique features is the Passive Talent Tree.

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
Path of Exile, developed by Grinding Gear Games is an action-based role-playing game with similar mechanics to that of Diablo 3. However, while Path of Exile may have some similarities, do not be fooled. This is NOT a knock-off alternative to Diablo. It is much more than that. Path of Exile is the game that Diablo 3 SHOULD have been. 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:

Please feel free to email me at the email address below with your favorite game, and I will feature it in an upcoming post!
On a whim today, I decided to purchase a new keyboard. While perusing the electronics section, I happened across the Logitech G510. I had been eying this keyboard for some time, but at $120, I just wasn’t willing to shell out the cash required when I already had a perfectly good Logitech G15 sitting on my desk. However, today it happened to be on sale for a much more reasonable $89. Continue Reading
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.
