One Night Ultimate Werewolf board game review – If you have to kill me, at least kill him too

At MMGaming we don’t just draw the line at video games. We’re geeks through and through and something we have slowly but surely be gaining a profound appreciation of over the past few years is Board Games. So it seems reasonable that now we have developed a decent repertoire of board games, that we could start reviewing them in the same way we video games. One Night Ultimate Werewolf and the subsequent One Night Ultimate Vampire are both, together (because they are not entirely separate games), easily within my top 3 board games of all time and have been sitting there proudly ever since they soared there so effortlessly.

Neptune’s Pride 2 Journal (Part 3 of 4) – The Triforce War

Early in 2013 me and my friends played a closed game of Neptune’s Pride 2: Triton, before even the glorious saga that was the war of the Space Bears. During the surprisingly brief, two-week-long, game I once again kept a journal of the exploits of my Empire in a rise and fall of epic proportions. Despite it now being two years later, I kept all my materials and have finally decided that the time is ripe to post the story. This journal log is part three of four, but you can read the previous entries here and here.

Neptune’s Pride 2 Journal (Part 2 of 4) – Optimistic Tidings

Neptune’s Pride 2 Journal (Part 1 of 4) – Once more unto the breach

Early in 2013 me and my friends played a closed game of Neptune’s Pride 2: Triton, before even the glorious saga that was the war of the Space Bears. During the surprisingly brief, two-week-long game, I once again kept a journal of the exploits of my Empire in a rise and fall of epic proportions.

World of Warcraft: Cataclysm retrospectacle – The world heaves with my torment…

Hey everyone, my name is Sabor117, and I’m a WoW addict. You know, I was recently introduced to the very well written TV show The West Wing in which a character talks about alcoholism as being where a normal person would have one drink, an alcoholic has ten. They essentially just can’t stop themselves, or at leas that’s what I took away. I got off World of Warcraft four years ago, it was just after I finished school and I found that I just couldn’t quite afford it any longer (both time and money wise). So, I quit, cold turkey. I got my main character to 85 in Cataclysm and then left and never looked back.

400 Days review – Not how long it took to finish!

I loved the original Walking Dead interactive story by Telltale Games, in fact I am kept awake at night sometimes by my decision to choose Assassin’s Creed 3 over it as my runner up game of the year for 2012. So, naturally, when I heard that there was some DLC heading our way for one of my favourite games I was ALL over that shit.

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?

Total War: Shogun 2 – Fall of the Samurai

The expansion for the amazing and massive strategy game Total War: Shogun 2 has been given a release date by Sega. It is due out on the 23rd of March and will cost $24.99 on Steam. The expansion actually stands alone from the game, as you could possibly tell from the price, and as well as having all the awesome of Shogun 2 it also introduces a plethora of new features.

Dead Island DLC

Some new DLC for Dead Island will be hitting the Island on the 1st of February. Apparently featuring the main game’s original antagonist, Colonel Ryder White, it makes for an interesting idea for some DLC. Perhaps it’s a prequel of some sort… I don’t know enough about Dead Island to be able to say… What I do know, is that there is a trailer, it’s pretty cool and the DLC will probably be full of even more awesome and gruesome bashing and slashing of zombies to bits. And disembowelling. And electrocuting. And shooting. Hell how many ways are there to actually KILL a zombie?!?

World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria

One of the things that always bothered me a little about World of Warcraft was how quickly new stuff seemed to come out. After any patch or expansion came out you would only just be getting into the swing of things when suddenly the next stage was announced and then tested and then released. Case in point. During my time playing through the cold wastes of Northrend I managed to raid occasionally, but went through guild after guild as one by one they split up, stopped raiding or just stopped playing. So when I finally manage to get a good guild I thought I might finally be able to get to the end-game content. And then Blizzard announces Cataclysm and so I suddenly have a time limit on killing the Lich King before it will become obsolete. Still managed though… SPARTANS!!!
