Are you ready to take on the dangers and criminals of Arkham city?
Even though it´s the final day of E3 2015 today, we will still think and talk about E3 2015 for weeks and months to come. Just take Rocksteady Studios upcoming action/adventure game Batman: Arkham Knight (the game is set for a release on the 23rd of June for Windows, MAC, Linux PS4 and Xbox One) for example. Arkham Knight was already a much wanted game by the Batman fans, but once the E3 gameplay demo started to roll. People just lost it, since the game is everything, we hoped for (and more).
Just take the fact that Arkham Knight looks better than any previous Batman game in the Arkham series (it´s thanks to the power of Unreal Engine 3, which gives Arkham Knight ); you may also explore the world of Arkham as you please, a world that's full of super villains, thugs and criminals for you to take care of.
Personally, i was most impressed by the fighting aspects of Arkham Knight. As it made me think about a Batman version of Streets of Rage (but with a whole set of awesome Batman gadgets at your disposal).
I also have to admit that I shed a manly tear when I saw some in-game Batmobile action (yes, it´s now a driveable vehicle in Arkham Knight) in the E3 gameplay demo. Let´s just say that I can´t wait to drive like a crazy bastard through the streets of Arkham with the Batmobile (when Batman goes Carmageddon?). So are you guys just as excited for Batman: Arkham Knight as I am? And did you enjoy the E3 presentation for the game?
If you are a reader of ours, then you know that we have written quite a few articles about #GamerGate over the past months. For ex:
The Women Of #GamerGate - The female side of the story:
The truth about #GamerGate and Brianna Wu:
Intel and Gamergate - The Gamergate to hell are still open!:
Gamergate is over - Game over man, game over!:
And still, very few people know what #GamerGate is all about. I can´t blame them though. Because i was confused as well at the very start of the birth of #GamerGate. And that´s where GamerGate.me steps into the picture.
Because GamerGate dot me is a neutral page that´s 100% dedicated to #GamerGate. So you will find all the information that you need to know on that page (plus updated news articles on the subject). So "hopefully" this will enlight (and inform) people about #GamerGate.
That´s at least the whole idea behind GamerGate.me (and my post for that matter).
In no way are we an official GamerGate website. We are an aggregate website on GamerGate. We aim to be a high quality information source to people following GamerGate or people just learning about it.
GamerGate is a power struggle over the fate of an $80+ billion industry between two loosely defined groups of people. On one side is the leaderless ragtag consumer revolt of #GamerGate, comprised of those who identify themselves as gamers and those who are sympathetic to the concerns of gamers. On the other side is a tight-knit network of journalists, PR reps, and media socialites who have explicitly disclosed their hatred of the gamer identity and their complete lack of respect for gamers. #GamerGate supporters sometimes refer to this clique as ‘Social Justice Warriors’ or as ‘SocJus’ (a reference to IngSoc from Orwell’s 1984).
Believe it or not. But i once actually played Second Life almost daily for hours. And that was back in 2007-2008 sometime, under the name of "Milo Kung Fu". But as times changed, so did i. So i stopped to play SL due lack of time and motivation.
So it´s been like, 5 or 6 years since the last time i played SL. And quite a lot has changed since then (hopefully viruses don´t exist in SL anymore). Actually i checked out some new gameplay videos for SL this morning. So i know for a fact that a lot of things has happened since 2008.
But do i want to come back to SL? I honestly don't know. But i shall think about it at least. I would love to hear what you boys and girls think about SL though =) So, feel free to speak up your mind about it ;)

In about two weeks (March the 17th) from now it´s show time for EA and Visceral Games urban War FPS game "Battlefield: Hardline" (Windows, PS3, PS3, 360 and Xbox One), so the pressure is on for sure now.
And as the release draws nearer, the Battlefield fans is starting to ask themselves the following question. Si BF: Hardline really worthy of my time and money?
So, yeah. BF: Hardline got a whole lot to prove. But i have to admit that i like the thought of a crime/heist themed BF game. Kind of like a mix of GTA 5, BF4 and Payday 2.
It may not be everyone´s cup of tea though. But i´m at least going to give BF: Hardline a fair chance.
So who knows, we might actually meet some of you guys (and girls) on the battlefield in the near future? ;)
Will "The Crew" have a chance against the elite games of the racing genre?
There´s a lot of competition on the racing scene, and everyone want´s a piece of the pie. And it seems like Ubisoft will try to reach out a grab a piece of that pie with their online open world racing game "The Crew" (for PC, PS4, Xbox One and Xbox 360). But will Ubisoft succeed?
Or will The Crew end up being just "another" racing game among the crowd? Left far behind in the dust of other superior racing games? Well, back in July (this year) Ubisoft released the closed beta version of "The Crew" for PC.
And from what i´ve heard, the beta players enjoyed the game (which would be the story-driven missions which takes place in the Midwest and East Coast of America).
The console players seems to have liked the open beta (which started November 25th) version of "The Crew" as well. And due to the fact that Ubisoft will release "The Crew" on December 2nd. We will soon find out whether or not the game rocks or just sucks.
But if you already believe in "The Crew", then you might consider checking out the nice pre-order deal for the game (which you can find down below).
The Crew pre-order deal:
- You get an exclusive access to a Mini Copper S 2010
Exclusive street edition including:
- A set of custom parts (front bumper, rear bumper, motor hood, rear wing)
- A full set of performance parts (motor core, tires, suspension, weight reduction, chassis, brakes, anti-roll bars, differential, engine, exhaust, ECU, carb, charger, gear box)
- An exclusive sticker created by the community
About The Crew:
This is The Crew, the ultimate MMO car-PG experience where starting your engine ignites an ever-changing, action-packed journey of infinite possibilities. This vast open world is for the countless drivers who come together to play, and for every driver within you. NEVER DRIVE ALONE.
It seems like my guts was right about Bioware´s Dragon Age: Inquisition (i know, we are all very tempted to call it "Dragon Age III", but no can do).
Because the fans likes the game, and so does the media as well. And so far the reviews has been very good for PS4, Xbox One and PC (nothing much has been said about the PS3 and 360 versions of Inquisition).
These are for example the average grades for Dragon Age: Inquisition so far:
Xbox One 87.50%
Xbox One 86/100
Rather good grades so i must say. But i´m still pretty curious to find out the average grades for the 360 and PS3 versions of Dragon Age: Inquisition. Oh well, time will tell! One thing is for sure though, Dragon Age: Inquisition (and Bioware) diden´t fail us!
About Dragon Age: Inquisition:
A cataclysmic event plunges the land of Thedas into turmoil. Dragons darken the sky, casting a shadow over lands on the brink of chaos. Mages break into all-out war against the oppressive templars. Nations rise against one another. It falls to you and your allies to restore order as you lead the Inquisition and hunt down the agents of chaos.
