Late night. Can't sleep. Happen to you guys?

Grahhh. It's about 1:00 A.M. on a Monday. I have school tomorrow, but I'm not going. I'm just interested in sleeping in tomorrow. I might do some Starcraft 2 replays. I've just been exhausted. Sorry guys, I've been neglecting you. So as a question, are you excited for Diablo 3? If so, which class are you gonna play? I myself am going Demon Hunter xD

A.V.A First Impressions (and my failed attempt at neo-steam)

Okay, so I tried to do Neo Steam, which is an MMO set in a steampunk world. I was intrigued by steampunk, cause it looks awesome, and tried it. I didn't play very much, cause it was unclear on what to do, the controls annoyed the hell out of me, and it seemed like a low-quality WOW-clone.

 Still, looked nice on the website. I'll be doing Alliance of Valiant Arms, or A.V.A. for short. I've been playing it a bit, and it runs smooth. Controls feel nice and responsive, good amount of players, and it's just fun. It's also really pretty for a F2P game.

More on that later on. For now, peace off guys!

Oh, and if you guys should happen to want to game with me at any time, my usual user is Arion676.

Genesis A.D.

It's a well-built fps, for those without parents that love them or who don't have an income. Actually, it's decent for any FPS. Doesn't compare to high-budget ones though. The graphics look good, and it runs fairly smooth for a F2P. The response and weapon handling is nice. Downsides, not enough customization, and low amounts of maps. Gets boring quick, but I'm sure they will patch that eventually. It's good if you are bored of other first person shooters, and it adds an interesting aspect with the supersuit power thingamajigs.

Engine/graphics: 7.5
It looks good. nuff said. Not the prettiest, but I'll take it. As for the physics engine, it handles pretty well, though sometimes you will get shot and knocked across the map. Nothing that truly affects gameplay though

Controls: 9.5
Really kinda hard to screw up controls on a PC shooter, I just don't agree with pulling out the knife to be "f" and still having to click to use it. Feels weird man.

Play: 7.5
It feels new, and can be annoying at times. The powers do add an interesting aspect though, and it's quite fun. Hard to get used to though, and the playerbase is kinda noobish, and small.

Overall: 7
It's good, for a time. You may want to come back after a couple of months when they add more, and it is still only a F2P, so I guess we should be impressed with how well it is designed. Also, supplier is useless.

Next game is Neosteam, which is a F2P mmorpg set in a steampunk themed world, sorry I haven't played it yet, and won't be able to give first impressions on it just yet.

There has been a recent uprise in the free-to-play online games. Now while none of them can exactly compete with the likes of fully funded MMO's and the like, they are good for a bit of fun. First of all, the free-to-play online games have a few different genres and types. They are funded through player micro-transactions, for better items, or cosmetic upgrades, or even double-XP. I have spent a lot of time trying out different ones, and I'll post a review on each one in the following weeks. I'll start with Genesis A.D. released by IJJI recently. I'll be sure to drop that either later tonight or tomorrow, links to download are here:

Note: you have to install the ijji reactor software, which is more than slightly annoying, but it's worth it for the game. Try it if ya like, but for first impressions, which I will include for the followup games in here, here it is.

I believe this is a pretty worthwhile FPS, paid or free. Special certain powers using different groups. If I had to compare it to something, I'd say a Crysis 2 lookalike. Some different mechanics, but all-in-all, it's a great game to pick up and try. Graphics look pretty smooth, and the servers are fast enough to get by with low ping. I haven't had an issue with lag or choppy framerate yet. It runs with a smooth flow, but is still fast-paced enough to keep you entertained.

Funnyjunk - Funny Pictures and Funny Videos

So this saps away a lot of my time. Mostly stuff taken from 4chan, and other various sites, but good for a decent laugh every once in a while.

I don't get stumped a lot, but this question made me think.

An innocent question."What is your favorite memory?"
Why can't I answer. I know I'm happy when I talk to you, but that's a whole list of memories. I get giddy when I see a textification, or IM. My favorite memory is actually of meeting you. For more than just you. We had a great time with friends, I got to feel like Harry Potter. But I finally got to meet you in person, and see who you really were. I guess that's when I started to feel for you. I'm not sure what's happening, and I really hate to be the sap who says this. I scold them all the time on facebook. "Omg, she's so perfect, kisses babe!" I won't ever be quite like that, hence why I am using this medium instead. Less traffic, less people to annoy. I just had to get it out.

Okay so Minecraft has taken over most of my life. My Nvidia Geforce 8400 is finally not good enough to handle today's games. Or at least it was till I overclocked it. It will make do until I decide to upgrade. Now for your gaming news!

I decided to make a news topic, and just inform you guys on upcoming stuffs. The Crysis 2 demo looks amazing, and the full game is slated for release in mid-March if you wish to make your computers cry. Unfortunately, the demo is only for Xbox 360. I tried to play it, but then my xbox crapped out.

The PSP2, or NGP, is sporting a quad-core processor, and intense graphics. It's about as powerful as the PS3. A handheld, as powerful as a console? Seems like it has potential, it also got rid of the analog nub, and has micro-analog sticks.

Ummmummm, Nothing else I can think of off the top of my head, but 2011 looks like it has some pretty promising releases. Diablo 3, Crysis 2, Elder Scrolls Skyrim. Should be interesting to say the least! Comment with any games/ tech stuff you are looking forward to for this year!
