A game that redefines what we thought was war

drizzt1666 | July 5, 2013 | Review of Spec Ops: The Line

I have never ever seen a game so deep as Spec Ops: The Line. Mostly everything that is happening on the screen has a dual purpose. It tries to cater to both COD fanboys and to people with emotions. I give you an example: You are constantly throughout the game will scale downwards while you progress on the levels. What does this mean to the MMS fanboys? Cool graphics. QT events. What does this mean metaphorically to the rest of us? This means that you are getting lower and lower mentally because of the severe PTSD and eventually you will reach your own personal hell. Another example. You find a satellite controlled napalm launcher on a level. When you start using it all you see are white dots from above a plane. Of course you will start firing without question, right? Pew pew! Die! After you clear out the map from the dots you are FORCED to witness what you just did. You killed a bunch of civilians. Some of them are still alive while some have their limbs missing. Some of them are still burning and crying. Has anyone told you to kill them? No. Yet you did. It was cool. Right?

Spec Ops: The Line is a take-off of everything we believe is war and shows us how distorted is our vision is about the military and it's soldiers...

Unique in every way

drizzt1666 | July 5, 2013 | Review of Eve Online 30 Day Starter Pack - Asteroid Miner

EVE sets the bar in many aspects. No other game this old (about 10 years) had so many engine upgrades, expansions (which by the way are free) and so many graphical overhauls ever. No other game offers more freedom in a sandbox type of game. And no other game is so unforgiving as EVE.

Think of this game as if it would be real life, just in space. Heck, it's not even a game. It's an experience.
