Dark and Light MMO

Sometimes a game comes along with major potential and leaves as soon as its released or completely off the radar of gamers. Well that was the case with Dark and Light back in 2006. The games original feel was like Everquest met Ark Survival and was very enjoyable but was extremely buggy and was felt programmed in haste. The technology for a game of its magnitude just want there in 2006 and it led to many bad reviews.  Here now almost ten years later in 2016 a surprise was shown and what could that be a trailer for Dark and Light re-released with brand new up to date Graphics and now with technology being as it is I think this game is ready to take on the world of MMO’s. Originally released by Reunion Island and shut down it                                                                                                                  2008 it looks like Snail games is breathing new life into this game.

Not much is known about the new re-release or what will be in the game but what is known it is a massive open world sandbox game with many different Classes as well as a  Town/City building mechanic, Guilds, Animal Taming and Crafting. Dark and Light should be releasing in Early Access on Steam around the Fall of 2016. So check out the videos and pictures and look into it yourself it well could be the next big game of the decade.

Smite remodels Loki the Trickster God!

Loki, the Trickster god, has finally got a graphical remodel!  Even though I don’t play him, I do think this remodel was very needed.  Not only does Loki’s new model look more crisp, it fits in with the evolving graphics of Smite.  I know for sure that I am not the only SMITE fan that is happy to see them constantly updating old gods, while still coming out with awesome new ones! And if this remodel wasn’t enough, SMITE adds some icing to the cake with stating following statement: “Due to this major change, all players will be refunded for their purchases of the Golden, Legendary, Diamond, and Ssslither skins for their favor value. Players who own Loki’s voicepack will also receive a refund for its gem price.”.

Here is SMITE’s patch overview that speaks on Lokis remodel:

Razer-Firefly-Kill on Sight Gaming

Razer’s latest “Firefly” gaming mousepad light-up feature; hit or miss?

Razer-Firefly-Kill on Sight GamingRegular mousepads dull and lifeless? Razer’s latest gaming mousepad, Firefly, features a Chroma SDK light-up effect with microfiber finish for optimized track response, but at the cost of $60..AND.. sacrificing one of your beloved USB ports! Aside from the smoother traction and quick cursor sensory reaction bells & whistles, is this just a novelty item? They did name their mouse pad into mouse mat, afterall.
