About Mobil 1 Racing Academy

In order to get the best out of the game play, you will have to be a registered player as it allows you to save your points and game settings, which in turn count towards your competition entry. You get the opportunity to choose between the two expert racers to be your mentor while you are at the racing academy. The two mentors that you can choose from are Lewis Hamilton and Tony Stewart. Their experience, expertise, and instructions will be very useful to decide on the outcome of the races. Picking Hamilton as your mentor, you get started with Karting, followed by Formula 3 and finally Formula 1. Picking Tony Stewart as your mentor, you get started with Midget Cars, followed by Indy Cars and finally NASCAR. The game does allow you the option of switching between the two mentors by clicking on the garage door.

As you take part in the races on the turning tracks, featuring some of the best racers in the academy, you should try to finish in good position, perhaps first position to earn maximum points. The points earned can be used to avail the useful upgrades that make you even


Earth Defense Force

The storyline is simple. Insects attack Detroit and the Earth Defense Force must save the city from certain destruction. There isn’t much else and the Earth Defense Force will engage insects in fierce battles on multi levels to ensure human kind survives.

In the older version released the humor was entertaining, but in this new version it’s kind of bland and few gamers will find anything to laugh about. The story isn’t too serious and will be enjoyed as something to pass the time. The gameplay in the previous version was also much more enjoyable and the sequel fails to excite gamers beyond the norm. It’s an average based third person shooter with nothing spectacular. You won’t find it as good as many other third person shooters and after a while the game does get quiet boring. You will be tempted often to put down the controls and forget about finishing the game.

There aren’t any magnificent weapons in your arsenal either. You have the normal standard guns to shoot with and the battles although fierce fail to inspire you to do better. Make no mistake, there is plenty of action and you can die easily


Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus

The obvious thing to do would be to just focus on the Vita specific features of this latest packaging, but that’s pretty boring. I’ve never personally reviewed Ninja Gaiden, so I’m going to give this a solid review that will hopefully appeal to Vita owners who have (somehow) never actually played this game.

So let’s start with a bold statement: I think (the original) Ninja Gaiden deserves the title as one of the best action-adventure games to ever grace a console. It’s not perfect, and time has caused its flaws to be magnified, but the combat system is as tight as ever. Every sword fight is fast and intense, and every battle you participate in could be your last. You absolutely must master (at the very least) the basic techniques, since as you have probably heard, this game is notoriously difficult.

And it is difficult, especially by modern standards, but Ninja Gaiden’s difficulty is discussed much like Demon/Dark Souls’ difficulty: as an exercise in hyperbole. Like those games, Ninja Gaiden is significantly challenging, but with patience and experience the game can be bested. A quick tip: learn how to block and dodge. These combat techniques are

Infinity Engine

If you’re a Madden nerd like me, then you’re probably already well-aware of the new physics engine in this year’s game. For those of you that don’t know what Infinity Engine is, it’s essentially EA’s version of Natural Motion. No longer will we see an animation-based tackling system. In fact, to my knowledge, the only place we will see animations within gameplay, is for catches.

To be honest, I would have been way more enthusiastic for this year’s game if EA would have taken animations out of the game completely. My best guess is that EA may have tried removing catching animations, but as a result, they were getting some weird catching motions, and had to remove it from the engine, and re-implement catching animations. Nevertheless, the Infinity Engine is #1 on my list, and there will be new catching animations this year.

Pass Trajectories

This is long overdue, because if you’re anything like me, you were tired of superman linebackers a long time ago. If you’re unfamiliar with this feature, it will allow you to throw the ball with more accuracy. Do you want to throw high and outside, high and inside, low and outside,


Tribez Review

For a simulation game, things move pretty quickly in The Tribez. Admittedly iv only played for a week but the longest iv had to wait for anything so far is about 4 hours. Those familiar with simulation games will know, that’s pretty fast. There’s an extensive story driven mission system that doubles as a training program, and a lot of your buildings and upgrades can only be unlocked by first completing a series of missions. Fans of H.G. Wells may also notice a few elements borrowed from The Time Machine.

You’ll start your game with only a handful of rundown huts, but with each new dwelling you build more tribesmen settle in, every new citizen is also a worker so the quicker you increase your population, the more stuff you can do at once and the quicker your progress will be. You can’t just spam houses down though, before putting a dwelling in your village you have to make sure your existing citizens are happy, which usually requires building some form of entertainment facility or placing decorations.

There is a great deal to build, almost overwhelming at first as the build menus are large and without the mission


About Okabu

Okabu is like that beautiful person. It has been blessed with the most beautiful graphics and artwork. The scenery is fantastic, displaying sharp, clear graphics and pictures. But the actual gameplay is tedious and boring. The puzzles are explained to such an extent that you solve them without any challenge. The situations and obstacles are so easy to overcome you can probably do them blindfolded.

The main characters are two cloud whales called Nimbe and Kumulo. You originally lived in the sky above but have left your home to find the pollution that’s killing off your race. On earth you find an evil race called the Doza. They are destroying the earth with pollution and toxic waste. You eventually meet the Yoruba who are a race also trying to save the earth. You resort to guerrilla tactics and fight the Doza. You must destroy all the inventions the Doza have created as it is harmful to the earth and environment.

The whales can fly and they can also absorb fluids. Early in the game they water the earth in this manner. They can also spit oil making paths which can be lit with fire. The whales


Crysis 3

The single-player portion begins 24 years after the events of the previous game. New York City is basically a jungle, The main character, Prophet, is on a personal revenge quest. The main antagonist is the human corporation CELL; without giving too much away, they aren’t exactly the brains of the operation. Not especially riveting stuff but the pacing proceeds quite nicely.

What was really awesome was the optional re-cap of the previous games’ storylines- I wish more developers would do this with sequels. When you first boot-up the single-player you’re given a choice of reviewing the stories of the older Crysis games. This was a very nifty feature, and especially handy for such a confusing and tangled narrative.

And that leads us to one of Crysis 3‘s biggest missteps: the actual storyline. It’s a bad sign when you’re more focused on standard first-person shooter mechanics and the pretty visuals than actually listening to the guy who keeps buzzing in your ear about this and that. In fact, the confusing storyline actually got in the way of the bread-and-butter shooting aspects of the game. You simply don’t care which characters live or die; you just want them to shut up


Wireless Xbox 360 Controller

Combined with standard control keys to manage your video game, it also has an awesome style so that gamers can play in a relaxed manner, as long as a gamer is at ease with his controller, he will keep on succeeding with his video games. Ease,comfort and capability are achievable as long as this controller is being used. In addition, it also has a shake feedback for a modified gaming experience, many people like the vibration feedback purpose because other remotes don’t have this new function. It is one thing new in the wireless controller that was not present in other remotes. Snarled and twisted cables will not frustrate you any longer. What more does a video gamer need? You can perform effortlessly while laying back on the couch within a specific range and having all the fun you want from the ease and comfort of this controller.

Video games have grown to be one of the best preferred pastimes in young groups of people, more and more video games with more technical specs have been launched. This has made the older generation group start to take part in video games as well. Wireless Xbox 360 controller


MW3 Strategies

As I was saying, and as you probably already know, COD MW3 has changed quite a bit since the last version of the game. For example, instead of having kill streaks, you now have what is called strike chains. This changes the game in a few important ways and that is one of the things we will be discussing in this article. Also, the weapons have changed, and now you will be able to level your weapons, unlocking weapon proficiencies as you go, allowing you to become more effective and powerful the more you play the game. Lets discuss these two topics in a little more detail to help you understand their importance a bit better.

Most people who start playing Modern Warfare 3 pick the assault class as their character, because the think they are just going to run around and “pray and spray” everyone, racking up the kills and points they desire and it’s as easy as that right? Wrong! Now with the new implementation of strike chains a better way to rack up points is to use the support class and provide covering fire for your teammates. If you still desire to be a


Harvest Lands

This game has many great things to offer. The monsters (unfortunately named “Nummies”) are adorable, and all the graphics are cute and sharp. You start off exploring the woods, gathering resources. This is done through a variety of swiping and tapping gestures, depending on what resource you are trying to gather.
You return to the town where you can build shops to sell these resources for gold. Gold is used to upgrade a variety of things, such as your population size limit. Both gold and the various resources are used for the other key mechanic- monster collecting.

As you explore, you come across Nummies in the wild. Many of them will offer you a “quest.” If you can meet their conditions in five minutes, they will join your population. Their conditions include giving them a certain number of gold, resources, or even controlling a specific Nummi to complete the mission. They have a rarity indicator too, and the more rare the Nummi, the higher the requirements.

So this idea of collecting monsters and harvesting and selling resources is a great start, but unfortunately that is where the game ends. There is no “Pokedex” or list to
