Over the weekend Valve Software announced that it will release a second batch of DLC for its zombie apocalypse shooters Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2. Dubbed “The Sacrifice,” this new bit of content tells the story of how one of the original L4D survivors (you know who I’m talking about if you played “The Passing”) bites the big one so his (or her…) friends can keep moving on. The cool thing is, when you play “The Sacrifice,” you get to choose which survivor takes the plunge for his/her homies. While it may not be cannon to the story, it does give you a chance to have some fun with your least favorite survivor (Francis… I’m looking at you).

The best news about this DLC is that it is coming to both L4D and L4D2. On top of that, the campaign No Mercy from L4D is officially being ported over to L4D2. That means you’ll be chainsawing Chargers on the Mercy Hospital rooftop, while trying to avoid being Jockeyed off the edges. Read more… »

The day after Starcraft 2 was released, I was sitting at my computer playing the single player missions when suddenly a buddy of mine told me he’d just beaten the game.  I’m talking the entire 20 plus hour campaign, and it hadn’t even been 48 hours since the game’s midnight release.  When I asked him why he rushed through it in such a short span of time, he said he hadn’t rushed; he just never stopped playing.

That single statement has resonated with me ever since, because the truth is, if you don’t want to stop playing Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty, you don’t have to.  It’s completely packed full with enough mouse clicking content to keep any real time strategy fan occupied for months, possibly even years.  If you’re not a fan of the genre, maybe it’s time to become one, because this game is worth your time and money.  To find out why, hit the jump.

Today Runic Games announced that it is hard at work on the sequel to its action RPG title Torchlight. Simply titled Torchlight II, the sequel sees some major additions including co-op multiplayer.

Another major change that you’ll notice right away is that Torchlight II takes players out of the mines and allows them to explore the continent of Vilderan. Players can expect “weather, time of day cycles, and random events” on top of the “deep ominous caverns” we’ve all grown to love. Read more… »

Gamer Limit Review: OnLive
By: | August 2nd, 2010

OnLive has been available to users for over a month now. During this time, I have tested out the service in many different scenarios: from a high-end PC, to a five year old laptop, to both desktop and laptop Macs. Put simply, the service works.

Oddly enough, it was the service working that many questioned prior to OnLive’s release. While the technology is held back by the poor infrastructure that is United States internet, it manages to utilize new compression technology to make up for it. But is the fact that it works enough? Join me as I provide both a written and video review of the OnLive service. Read more… »
