The MMGaming Awards – 2013

This is a post which usually comes around the first week of January, however I personally decided to postpone it for a little longer because there was one game which I had yet to play but knew I would be playing relatively soon. It took a bit longer than expected to finally get around to playing said game, but it was worth it because it does factor rather massively into the running of this year’s MMGaming Game Awards. As always, people are now raising eyes and faces to the sky, hearts in mouths and stomachs where the heart used to be, ready to hear what are surely the most prestigious and most awaited awards every year. Despite the late arrival of the MMGaming Game Awards, everyone from the smallest to the biggest of devs knows that it is big and important and they were all willing to wait as long as necessary with the hopes of winning one of the awards. Anyway, it is now time to get down to business and (defeat the hun) give our opinions on some of the best and brightest of the good year 2013. Let’s get to it!

The MMGaming Awards – 2012

The world awaits with bated breath as we at MMGaming have been considering the various awards we would like to hand out at this years MGA (MMGaming Gaming Awards): the more prestigious version of the VGA. All across the globe the big game companies are staring at their browsers, just waiting to see if their game will be forever immortalized in our hearts and minds. Joking aside though, it is indeed time for us to look back at 2012 and consider what the highlights, and possible low-lights (if that is indeed a word), of the year were! Now while we do put a fair amount of thought into the various awards (even those we include only as a way of amusing both you and ourselves) when it comes to the bigger and more serious things the MMGamers have an unfortunate tendency to not agree on who ought to be winning. That’s why that in the following, very prestigious, very formal and serious award ceremony (done via a post on the internet) some of the awards might have input from more than one of us, explaining why THIS particular game should win THIS particular award. Naturally you should be listening to me here and not the others, of course… Anyway, without any further ado I hereby welcome you to the MMGaming Game Awards!

Merry Christmas!

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!! I hope you all got some lovely presents, I hope you got to spend time with your families and we would like to wish you the very best over the rest of the Holidays! Now Christmas is over though it’s time to play those games we got as presents! Normal cynical service resuming shortly!

Changes to the News

We had a plan at MMGaming… We made our posting schedule and we would stick to it! Now, obviously, we aren’t professional writers and so there isn’t nearly enough incentive for us to manage to keep up with the posting every week (especially as we don’t have either the time or money to get enough games to keep up) but I would like to think that for the most part we do an acceptable job of keeping up with our schedule. Lately, due to exams both here in the UK and across the pond MMGaming has taken a back-seat for both of the major writers here (I.e. me and Nick) but even so I think we manage acceptable at keeping up… For the most part… You see, something is terribly wrong here at MMGaming… Every Sunday was supposed to be News day… The Endweek News! Unfortunately, it has been well over four months since I last posted any news at all (minus a catch-up session in mid-October). This is clearly against the natural order of things and must be rectified if balance is to be restored. However, I do feel that changes have to be made and so I am posting this to inform you all of A. Why I Have Been so Quiet With the News and B. What we are Going to do to Rectify This! Read on…

Steve’s Exit Plan

Hey folks! Just wanted to run this past you real quick. A new band is in town and they are the wonderful, magnificent, average, typical indie band called Steve’s Exit Plan! They are comprised of a few of my mates from the hometown of Glasgow and while their recordings are in rough form they certainly have potential to make great music. I’d appreciate it if yous would check them out and give some of their songs a listen! Details after the jump.

MMGaming Community Incoming!

Right folks! This is a special news post that deserves it’s own article and space on the MMGaming page! At MMgaming we have started up a new endeavour! Now we realise it’s still early days for this site, but we figured it’s good to get started on things sooner rather than later so without any further ado I’d like you to head over to the Official MMGaming Forum. Honestly, we haven’t yet done anything with it but we’d like to use it as a place where people can go to discuss video games, films or whatever you feel like! Honestly we’re not too fussed. Hope to see you guys on there at some point!

The Neptune’s Pride Diary of His Royal Highness, Emperor of the Ileryu (a.k.a. Sabor117) – Parts 4 to 8

Click here for Parts 1 to 3 and for Elephant_God’s account of the early game His Royal Highness, Emperor of the Ileryu – Journal Entry 4 21/01/20012 Log Starts – What are they doing? I simply do NOT understand it. The Green has built up an army capable of smashing my Empire into pieces and assembled it right on my border. And then they stopped doing anything. The Reds are pushing into the Yellow Empire slowly but inexorably, as he and I did with the Teal. Speaking of Teal, I ought to say how that is going. Teal marshalled his last fleet on one of his last four planets. The only one within reach to me and Yellow. I had recalled all my strongest fleets to my border with Green and so only had one weak one. Yellow had a stronger one but it possibly wouldn’t have been able to win the fight as Teal had a reasonable amount of ships in his fleet.

The Neptune’s Pride Diary of Sabor117 – Parts 1 to 3 and that of Elephant_God’s

His Royal Highness, Emperor of the Ileryu – Journal Entry 1 Stardate 9/1/20012 Log starts – Our great Empire has come to the sudden realisation that we are not alone in this Galaxy of ours. In fact we share it with another seven space-faring civilisations all in a similar position as us. Meaning they are just starting to expand the borders of their domain. We are in an interesting position which could be considered either strong or weak depending on how you view it. We are at the edges of the Galaxy and as such are not so unfortunate as some in that we are not surrounded by the other civilisations. That said we are within reasonable distance of two space-faring civilisations and only a little further away from a third.

Endweek News – Assassin’s Creed lawsuit not quite finished yet, What is this E3 thing?, a new Gears of War and some truly awesome videos!

It is that time of week where once again I delve into the grim and gritty business of video game news. It’s a cut-throat world out there, a game eat game world. A world in which only the fittest and most awesome games survive. And Call of Duty of course (OOoooh! ZING!). But seriously, it’s not really that bad (well not for everyone) and we’ve got some pretty interesting bits and pieces of news to regale you with today. Also I want to make it clear that the above video is indeed sort of relevant to this post as you shall find out later (if you read through this!) So, what’s new Gamers?
