Blog Journal Volume 53: The Waking Dead

Good news everybody! I'm back on the internet after moving and ready to get back to spite of being sick. Yep. 

The Walking Dead Season Two: Now that all the episodes have been released, I can finalise the review of the whole season and post it. Tune in this Wednesday for it.

System Shock 2: No, I've not forgotten about this game, I've just gotten distracted and unable to finish up the review and by extension, the game itself.

StarCraft II Wings of Liberty: I'm just never able to finish this game. Let's hope I can change that sometime before the year ends.

Fallout 3: I've yet to finish this game as well, but once again, I've not forgotten about it and it will be reviewed soonish.

Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines: This one may take a while to finish up, but rest assured, it will be done as well.

Blog Journal Volume 52: DELAYS

So we have successfully moved to the new place, but there's a catch: The Internet Supplier might take 2 days to activate our internet, or SIX WEEKS. That means, you may not see another review until October. I'm sorry about the delay, but it's beyond my control.

Stay tuned for my weekly updates on this subject, to let you know when the internet is finally up and ready and when I can review again. I'm anxious to do the new The Walking Dead Season Two episode but that'll have to wait a while.

Thanks for your support in all this. :)

Blog Journal Volume 51: MOVING -_-

So there's some good news, and some bad news.

"What's the good news!?"

Well, the bad news is that I'm moving and will be off the internet for a short while. I also won't be able to finish a Content Rundown for this week due to a high amount of work and then packing in between things.

That's the bad news. No review this week. Sorry InfamousPotato, that Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines Content Rundown will have to be posted either next week or the week thereafter. :(

The good news is that I'm moving to a place with faster internet and as such, might be able to download and review several games which I didn't get to this year and even the past year for that matter. (Fallout 3, I'm looking at you. And you, StarCraft II. And you too, FEAR Trilogy.)

My YouTube channel will also benefit greatly from the move, with faster internet adding up to more, possibly daily, uploads. I punch those numbers in my calculator and it makes a happy face. :)

Community Question: How much would you like to see Video Reviews of games?

Blog Journal Volume 50: *mic check*

Well, this is awkward. For the first time in this blog's history, I literally have nothing to write about. So, I thought, why not take a look at some of the excellent games to come late this year and next year?

(It's better than nothing, a'right???)

Call of Duty Advanced Warfare: Yes, I know, Call of Duty has slowly become the laughing stock of the gaming community. But Advanced Warfare looks like it may be a big step in the right direction for the series.

The new three-year development cycle will only do the series good. Advanced Warfare has a new engine (if I did my research right) which is also a good step for the series. All in all, I'm excited to see what the new COD holds, even if it may turn out to just be more of the same.

Batman Arkham Knight: In three words, Can. Not. Wait! Arkham City was a bit of a mess with all the different Batman villains over the years thrown in together to create a very loose plot with a very effective ending.

Arkham Knight will continue on from there, with one new villain specifically created for the game. All the other villains from previous Arkham titles will reappear, which is a good thing in my books because it will bring the entire plot full circle, which won't happen with an entirely new cast of villains.

As for the Batmobile...hehe, nothing needs to be said. I can't wait to giggle like a little kid whilst driving around in every ten-year-old's dream vehicle.

The Sims 4: This one's not too far away, so my impressions are widely shaped by what we've seen this close to release. TS4 looks like it will fix things I found to be at fault with The Sims 3, including the lack of focus on the smaller things and more focus on bigger things, which detracted from the experience for me.

TS4 has very low system requirements for a modern game and it also happens to be a largely off-line experience, which is good. Let's not repeat SimCity, EA!

Community Question: Would you like to see forums for KVR Gaming soon? (Yes, these questions actually belong in a forum, so that's why I'm asking.)
