Metro 2033 is a dark journey saturated with an enthralling atmosphere that will reward intrepid adventurers.

7. World of Warcraft: Cataclysm
Cataclysm doesn't improve World of Warcraft as dramatically as the free update that preceded it did, but it's still a great expansion pack for anyone with high-level characters.

Top 20 PC Video Games of 2010 Part I

20. The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom
A few flaws hold it back, but the latest Settlers game is the series' most charming to date.

19. Super Meat Boy
This sublime platformer provides tons of challenge, precise controls, and incredible level design that will keep you glued to the screen.

18. Sid Meier's Civilization V
Excellent tactical battles and a slick interface make the latest Civilization another wonderful addition to a classic franchise.

17. Lost Planet 2
It may not live up to its massive potential, but Lost Planet 2 on the PC is a step in the right direction.

16. Mount & Blade: Warband
Exciting multiplayer battles make Mount & Blade: Warband a strong addition to the open-world role-playing genre.

Blacklight: Tango Down

Among one of the few good online FPS's on the market right now there is this game called Blacklight: Tango Down.
It isn't exactly Call of Duty Black Ops, but if you somehow want to take a break from the COD franchise and try something new Flashlight is the way to go!
It has been released in July for all platforms(PC, PS3, Xbox 360) and even though it couldn't compete with Black Ops, it still keeps it's player base alive.
The game is made for multiplayer. It has also a co-op mode but with no storyline at all.
It stands out by offering the Hyper Reality Visor which is practicly a device that allows you to see people through walls for a short(very short) period of time.
This mecanic can be countered by the use of special grenades that when they explode they create an EMP field among them thus players with the HRV can only see static there.
This mecanic is the strong point of the game, setting it appart from Call of Duty and possibly opening a new trend in the video game industry.
Games that bring innovation are tough to find these days so I really recommend you give it a try.

(the title of this video is an inside joke of nanners or some sort as the game is not called Flashlight: Tango Town)

Merry Christmas

OK so Christmas is here guys, that time for sharing and loving. I hope you all got what you wanted and had a good one.
I am personally not feeling it this year. There is no snow, the sky is cloudy and crappy, the same Christmas movies like in all the years where they get this self-centred person and they get Santa to stuff some ol' christmas spirit in him.
It's all presents and shit anyway. I doubt that more that 1 out of 10 people now that Christmas is about Jesus Christ....
Anyway for Christmas I have for all of you montage lovers out there some videos that are "tuned" to the hollydays.

Even if you are not a COD player, montage lover or even gamer; you should see the introduction of this video as it is purely hilarious.
This is, ladies and gentlemen, zzirGrizz....

And Darth Aim Bot

Also for the comment questions of the week:
How often do you shop online? What do you shop and where do you shop?

Battle Los Angeles

Heya guys, Teutorix here on some movie update.
While surfing Youtube I came across a sick-ass trailer that just blow me away.
The trailer is down below.
All I have to say is that I love alien invasion movies and the Transformers-like visuals are welcomed but as I've seen from the trailer, humans are really getting their asses kicked and I really don't want them winning eventualy by *HACKING THE ALIENS SPACESHIP WITH A MAC*  (yes, I'm looking at you Independence Day), nor do I want them just dieing all of the sudden(like in Day after Tomorrow).
I am really looking forward to this movie and I am pretty hyped up. It's gonna be released in 03.11.2011.

Battlefield Bad Company 2 Montages

Bad Company 2 is not the type of game you just hop in take a gun a shoot people. While this formula is fun there is an abundance of games that do it. BC2 is not that type of game, it needs tactic, rapid thinking and teamwork. The game stands out with it's realism, physics and skill required to play. BC2 matches oftenly take a while because of the huge maps kills are not so spectacular as gameplay is not so aggresive like in other games of the genre. Reason why BC2 does not have so many montages and stuff.
However gameplay videos with commentaries are equaly interesting as it takes us into the world of REAL modern warfare.

A video that shows some flanking routes for the massive maps of BC2.

Commentary from Machinima

Commentary by MuzzaFuzza.

Yesterday was not a good day, Ice-Cube

Yesterday sucked on so many levels.
Firstly my girlfriend went psycho on this super childish thing. I won't go into the reasons but she is like exagerating so much for something she should be even mad about to begin with. Probably she is mad because she got a low score on her math test but venting that on me is lame. She said a couple of times that when she gets mad, she really gets mad but wow.... just wow.... She wont even answer the phone.
I was so happy to find a girl with boobs and brains now I got to worry about the temper. GREAT.
Secondly a thing that pissed me off was the fact that I was half an inch away to be run over by a speeding car. I was thinking about my "girlfriend" and walked on the red light(there was no car in sight I made sure of that though). From the sudden I hear a horn and immediately I had a car 10 feet from me. As soon as the motherfucker saw me on the red light he pushed that throttle like there was no tomorrow. What would he had gained for hitting me? Extra fucking points?

When I got home after a bit of searching on the internet I found this and thought I would share.

"It’s time to address the elephant in the room. It’s time to dispel this little bullshit fantasy world you live in: it’s time to take out the “nice guy” argument once and for all. The truth is, all but a select few of you date not just assholes, but worthless, hopeless, arrogant men. You will call their childish anger “passion,” their selfishness and petty jealousy “caring,” their sole interest of sex in you “chemistry,” and most importantly, you will call their unfounded, egomaniacal narcissism “confidence.” Unfortunately, a huge percentage of you may even be too stupid to actually know the difference.
I may come off as bitter, but I ain’t even mad. Sometimes the truth isn’t pleasant, but I have a low tolerance for cliché bullshit. Labeling any guy who doesn’t fit the category above as a “nice guy” is just one more lame attempt to do what all females strive to do – give self-validation instead of taking responsibility. Way to pass the buck for your terrible mate selection onto the most undeserving of the opposite genders. YOU are the ones who have all of the power of sexual selection, YOU are the ones who search out these worthless males, then have the gall to call them “alpha males,” YOU are the ones who ignore all the warning signs, and YOU are the ones who invest deep emotions into this pointless charade. At least when a man is dating a stupid bitch with big tits, he has the gall to not lie to himself and pretend she’s worth more than her pussy.
As opposed to every nice guy who has put you on a pedestal for your BEST traits, it is YOU who have put the worst of our gender on a false pedestal for their BAD traits. Your entire gender is worse than the ones you try to pass the blame to."

It contains bullshit, I'm not saying it doesn't but I related so much with it when I found it that a tear came out of my eye. It's just something I thought I  would share with you guys and my girlfriend if she had known english.

Tomorrow Bad Company Montages, I promise.

Bad Company 2 time

Bad Company 2 is one of the best shooters out there. If my PC would handle it I would surely play it every day. I have not featured many Bad Company montages, commentaries and gameplay video, because there just aren't many. I have found a considerable amount of these videos on a channel called PIXELENEMY.
As such I declare this week, Bad Company 2 week.
Here some videos to get you into the game, I'll start with actual montages and commentaries tomorrow.

First a short gameplay video....

Then a Tutorial...

P.S. As I said I still have some exams to go through, I'll be a more active member in the blog-o-sphere after they are over and don't be discouraged to stay tuned to this blog. Read the post below. Don't forget to tell pe about typos in the comments.

News and Montages.

Hi there. For today we have some MoH montages but before that...
My last exam is on the 15th December after that, during the winter brake, I will have more time to manage my blog. Blew (the guy who did the logo) is working on a PixelShredder-exclusive theme for the blog and also a new background.
I will also try to do a Killing Floor gameplay+commentaries, I really feel that game is underated and want to spread the word. 
Also in a couple of weeks I will be introducing THE BACKLINKS SECTION. After the end of my one of my post I will ask a question to see if anyone is actually reading my blog. The first 5 people with correct answers will get their blog featured there for 1 month.
Also because I heard you like tuna(sorry for the typo I didn't mean Tunna the Anatolian city.) I will post my tuna salad recipe Sunday.

Here are the montages promised.

Montage 1

Montage 2

Montage 3


I there, Teutorix here for novembember 30th. Today I'm gonna show you guys a CoD montage by Patchee. Patchee initialy wanted his video to get 10000 likes and he got them. I'm sorry for posting this to late I just found out about it. I find it really good, and I tought I shared it with you guys. See you later.
Here is the video.

Warning!!!! your head might explode of too much awesomeness.


For today we have the first Halo machinima on this blog (YAY)!
It a spoof of the song I wanna be a billionaire by Bruno Mars and I think the people who made it are very talented singers. Also the video contains some pretty good kills.

Best Starcraft Match...ever!!

Yesterday I had a bit of spare time before going to school and I started watching some old commentaries by HDStarcaft. After a while I stumbled upon something that is my favorite match to date. It's called Greenpine vs "Bob".
The reason why this is the absolute best Starcraft match I've seen to date is because it's a TvT where one of the players uses the "renewable energy" of his massive army of Ravens to overwhelm and defeat his opponent.
See for yourself how pure win is this game.

PT. 1/3

PT. 2/3

PT 3/3

Stuff going on Monday.

I've recently watched Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and I really liked it.
The plot is really simple, it's about a guy who most defeat 7 evil ex-boyfriends in order to date his new girlfriend. The movie tries to do something different and it is a movie made for the old gamers. There are lots of references and little stuff put here and there, like the peebar or the fact that every evil ex-boyfriend that gets defeated pops into coins.
I don't want to spoil it, so for now all I can say more is that I liked it, it does its job perfectly and I recommend it.

Husky, that Starcraft 2 game announcer you may or may not know got his 300 000th subscriber video up.

Also digging through youtube I found this channel where is this guy doing shorts, I really like his stuff and he always makes me laugh, here is a sample, i suggest you see it to the end because it has a nice twist.

The trailer to the Half Life fan-made movie is out. It's made by film school students and the effects and the prodution values seem awesome, only the acting looks a bit stiff. Check it out and tell me what you think.

Fable III, The Black Angels

As soon as I saw for the first time the Fable III It's a Revolution trailer I feel in love with the music.
After some digging in the comment section I found the name of the band:The Black Angels. listened to a couple of songs and it turned out to be a band that i very much like.
About the game itself I'm pretty hyped, the marketing is very good, both trailers I've seen are just perfect, short and to the point. Also even though the previous games in the series didn't live up to their own promises I liked them.
I'm sure you've all seen the trailer but if you didn't know about The Black Angels here are some of their songs....

The song from the trailer.

And another song I like

Last Black Ops post for the week

There is not much that happened since yesterday except some interesting videos and a couple of updates from me.
First of all i urge you again to read the Introductory post, if i forget to resise a video please remind me to do it in the comment section, thats why it's there.
I won't like to make this blog a CoD blog so this is the last Black Ops post of the week, i'll concentrate on some other cool projects i'm sure you will like. Also I'll be talking about WoW, Halo Reach and movies some more because I know some of you are interested.
As I said in the previous video, i just got a new gaming mouse and I plan you use it.
I just got Counter Strike 1.6 to play a little but more about that in a future post.

Videos of the day:

Some smooth gamplay and cool commentary by BlameTruth

Hazard Cinema Top 10 Black Ops Plays :: Week 1 presented by OnlyUsemeBlade


First week of Black Ops

Black Ops has been out for quite a while now. It may not have sold as much am MW2 but it is defenetly BETTER that it. It got generally pozitive reviews and unlike it's predecesor, predicaments say that it will not suck in a couple of months because of the community finding broken stuff in the game and abusing it.
It features a 6 hour singleplayer which is perfect for a COD game. The campaign is considered by many the best CoD campaign, it's action packed and it never slows down.
The multyplayer brings a highly, much highly than before, customizable class system. You change the camo on your face to the color of the red dot on your red dot sight or the color of the scope on the red dot sight. Noobtubing is totally nerfed, martyrdom is no more.
You may also know or wish to know that they nerfed quickscoping. Now snipers shoot straight only after 2 seconds of scopping. The commnunity also adapted in a way i can't explain but can show you guys in one of the video below.
The only thing more I can say about it is that YOU SHOULD GO AND TRY IT. Treyarch made up for CoD 3 and CoD:WaW with this don't be judgemental. The developers here really took their time in balancing everything to create a not totally broken game and learned from both their and Infinity's mistakes.
I just bought a gaming mouse (A4Tech X7) and I will buy Starcraft 2 and CoD:Black Ops in December, I hope I'll see you guys in the battlefields.

Video Time
Hutch's opinion about the game.

Quick-scoping and noscoping.(also cool music)

Insane ammount of epic kills in 5 seconds type of video:

There are lots of crap out there but this are the must see.

The Unreal Engine

The Unreal engine was developed by Epic Games in 1998 and represented the main rival of the Quake-engine. With it's core written in C++ it featured a high degree of portability.
It's still used today, you might heard of MASS EFFECT and BIOSHOCK, they are actually made using the Unreal engine.
Unreal Engine 1 made it's debut with the games Unreal and it's multyplayer "counterpart" Unreal Tournament. Altough it didn't use many resources and could run on average computers at the time, it featured incredible graphics and fast paced-action. It contained a scripting language that made it easy to mod and also featured an client-servered architecture for the first time in gaming.
Unreal engine 2 had it's core code completely rewritten and integrated the new UnrealED 3(the level editor).
Games made using this engine were America's Army, Unreal Tournament 2003 and many more.
Unreal engine 3 was made for the current generation console and DirectX 9/11. It included HDRR, per-pixel lighting and dynamic shadows. Games made using this engine were Gears of war 1 2 and 3, Unreal Tournament 3, Blacklight Tango Down, Bulletstorm, Borderlands, Mass Effect and many many many more.
It was also presented a non-gaming use. non-gaming projects including construction simulation and design, driving simulation, virtual reality shopping malls and film storyboards. It also powers the animation software "Muvizu 3D" which is currently in beta stage.

This videos add more details to what i said above, if you are interested you should see them.

Unreal Engine 1/2

Unreal Engine 3

Here comes Friday

I have been very busy lately, I think I ate something on my trip and I was feeling ill since wendsday. Tomorrow a biology and psichology test awaits me. I barely had time to study today. I'll study one more hour before i go to sleep, it's already to late. Tomorrow morning the only thing i got to do is study anyway so i think i'll ace both. Tomorrow I will review Unreal Tournament.
Hope you have a good night or morning or noon, depending on your timezone.
Wish me luck on the tests and see you soon.


Quake is a first-person shooter video game that was released by id Software on June 22, 1996. Long story short a fully 3D game as early as the mid '90s was bound to succes. It featured advancements in 3D technology like the usage of polygonal models instead of prerendered sprites; full 3D level design instead of a 2.5D map; prerendered lightmaps; and allowing end users to partially program the game (in this case with QuakeC), which popularized fan-created modifications.
The game itself presented in the singleplayer a non-important storyline, and a level design that put the player to go from point A to point B while fighting all sorts of intelligently created monsters and bosses; and a multyplayer that was further upgraded by id Software with the release of QuakeWorld.
The Quake engine pretty much pioneered the gaming industry with an engine that was new, innovative and mod-friendly. Because of the mod friendly-characteristics it, as we've seen in previous examples, it developed a community. As an example of the dedication that Quake has inspired in its fan community, a group of expert players recorded speedrun demos (replayable recordings of the player's movement) of Quake levels completed in record time on the "Nightmare" skill level. The footage was edited into a continuous 19 minutes, 49 seconds demo called Quake done Quick (QdQ) and released on 10 June 1997. Owners of the game could replay this demo in the game engine, watching the run unfold as if they were playing it themselves.
Speedrunning is a counterpart to multiplayer modes in making Quake one of the first games promoted as a virtual "sport". There is a database of all speedrunning videos on You can also find there extra maps an stuff.
The power of the Quake Engine was recognized right away by the game designers, fact that spawned a pretty large list of games that were made using it. Among that list you can find games like RTC Wolfenstein, SWJK2: Jedi Outcast, Heavy Metal FAKK, Heretic, Hexen, Medal of honor Allied and Pacific assault and many more.

Speedrun record


Speedruning can be "spiced" by adding rules like killing every enemy in the game with and axe, in which case time doesn't even actually matter anymore.

Tomorrow I will post some impressions about Black Ops, good night and see you soon.

Stressfull Monday

Hi, Teutorix here, back from Sibiu. The trip was awesome but it sort of left me behind with my studies so I will postpone my innovative game series of reviews for until thursday. If i can't keep those posts good i'd rather not make them at all.
I am currently watching the EMA's (grats EMINEM, i love you, in a manly way of course). For today i'll just show you guys some stuff I found from the blogoshpere and on youtube. Blew made an introductory post that you should check out, you will probably here some interesting stuff from him.
Firstly COD:Black Ops came out in the US, I still got to wait 2 days here in Europe.
Secondly there are some COD 4, WaW and MW2 that just came out on sites like Hazard Cinema. I don't want to spam you with montages but these will be the last montages that come out before Black Ops so let's make the best of them and remember the great games of the COD franchise.

Team Fortress

Team Fortress Classic

The phenomenon known as Team Fortress as a mere mod for id Software's Quake. Luckly Valve software saw the potential and ported it to the Half Life engine as "Team Fortress Classic".
The premise of the game is a class-based battle between opposing sides, Red and Blue. Players chose a class that defined their role in the team and style of play with each class having strengths and weaknesses.The classes were very different each with it's weapons and tactics, pros and cons.
The most important innovation that TFC added to gaming were the friggin' HEADSHOTS. Thats right folks headshots did not exist in FPS' before.
As other Valve games it quicky became popular and because of it's innovative concept that not all players were the same and there was more to do than just shoot the enemy in the face, TFC created it's own community.
TFC was actually so popular, it actually inspired many programmers to create mods of other game in TFC style.

Team Fortress 2

With the creation of the Source engine and many games being remade, fans awaited the arrival of Team Fortress 2.
and waited....
and waited...
and waited...

After Team Fortress 2 became associated with Duke Nukem Forever in developement time, there came, in 2007, Team Fortress 2 for Windows.
Upon its release, the game received critical acclaim and several awards, being praised for its cartoonish graphical style, gameplay and sense of humor. Knowing that the power of the game was in the class-based combat, the developers created each class giving it it's own personality. The "characters" were humorus and cartoonish. This was made mainly to promote the game before it's release(we all remember the Meet The Team videos on Youtube right?)
Like its predecessors, Team Fortress 2 is focused around two opposing teams competing for an objective. These teams, Reliable Excavation & Demolition (RED) and Builders League United (BLU), are meant to represent two holding corporations that between them secretly control every government on the planet.
Team Fortress 2 also had a SDK, because of that modders used to create skins, maps and other custom content.
Team Fortress 2 is the first of Valve's multiplayer games to provide detailed statistics for individual players. They include the time spent playing as each class, most points obtained and the most captures or objectives achieved in a single life. Persistent statistics tell the player how he or she is improving in relation to these statistics, such as if a player comes close to his or her record for the damage inflicted in a round.

Video time!!

TF2 Commentary+Gameplay 2


Tomorrow there will be an update post and in the weekend I will post about Unreal Tournament and Quake-engine games.
Don't forget to comment, follow, and tell me about spelling issues in the comments.

Counter Strike:Source Thursday

The "sequel" to Counter Strike Source came with the creaton of the all-mighty Source engine and was developed by Turtle Rock Studios. It was released in November 1, 2004 (2004-11-01) on Windows and on June 23, 2010 on the Mac.
Following on the footstepps of it's predecesor it quickly created a community and became the
#1 Online Action Game in the World!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Counter Strike:Source is not really a sequel to Counter Strike but it's more like a remake. It had the same guns, and mostly the same map rules, with the strongest point being on realism.
Being created with the Source engine however brought a some changes to the game, the most noticeable is the graphics and the game physics, thus Counter Strike came even closer to achieving it's goal realism.
By using the Source engine CSS also benificiated of SDK(Source Developement Kit), a tool modders used to the maximum.
The release of CSS also came with critiques, most of them being about the fact that it had the exact same weapons(big downer for me), and a more innacurate recoil, reason why the Counter Strike 1.6 community is still alive and kicking today.
Also unlike 1.6 Valve din released several big updates that was recieved pozitively by the community.
The updates improved the on screen radar, scoreboard, added a killcam, achievements and much much more.
To understand more about the game please see this videos:



The power of SDK

Next on the list is the Team Fortress both games in one post then we go to COD and MOH and some UT-engine games.

Counter Strike Monday

       As Black Ops will soon come out on 11.09.2010, I would want to post a series about different FPS' that defined the genre and had a major impact on the gaming culture.
First of all let's start with Counter Strike, 1.6 to be more specific.

      Counter Strike was a great innovation for gaming as it brought a new concept: behind every enemy that you killed there was a real person. I am not saying multyplayer has not been around before, but Valve bought stabilty to online gaming with a game that required skill in order to play in a form that allows you to team up with people all over the world instead of just inviting friends to your house and play with them on your couch.
      For gamers all around Counter Strike was love at first sight (except Korea, they had Starcraft). The game is still being played all around the world.
      The reason why Counter Strike has this longevity because the game was designed in such a fashion that players could be free in modding it.
      This being said, players used the game's engine to create thousand of maps, skins, game modes that combined with the simplicity of the game itself make this game, one with a large and active community that is still around today.
      The main goal of the game was it's realism. Guns had real life recoil, the sound was excelent and you could always rely on it, the not yet encountered before ability to carry only 2 weapons and many more.

In the traditional PixelShredder way we will also present a series of videos.

A CS: 1.6 Machinima

A CS. 1.6 Montage

Note: that montage is quite frankly better than 90% of COD4 montages out there, just sayin'.

Tomorrow we will review the follow up, Counter Strike Source, then Team Fortress, COD 4 and many more.

Medal of Honor

Medal of Honor has been out for a couple a days now, to be more specific on October 14th for us Europe gamers. I realise I waited to long to post something
about it but i wanted to try it first. The truth is I didn't but lots of Youtube people
did commentaries, reviews and shared opinions about the game. As much as I could
gather the singleplayer is very realistic and is made as a tribute to the U.S. soldiers
fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq which is good, in my book. The singleplayer is linear
and does not bring anything radicaly new to the FPS genre but it keep you on your
toes and excited for the whole duration.
You also have a Spec-Ops like arcade mode where you do the story levels on a
much higher difficulty for a higher score.
The multyplayer seems fun and very COD4 like(as far as I seen, it reminds me to
much of COD4 than i would like). There is much to say about the multyplayer and
without further ado, let's actually see some videos shall we?

Then we have VitalSyntax:

Then we have Tejb:

Last but not least Onlyusemeblade:

Starcraft 2 Patch

A new Starcraft 2 patch came out yesterday, on October 14th. It's patch 1.1.2 and it brings some minor adjustments to the races.
You can read the Patch notes on the official site here.
Or you can see HDstacraft's video explaining everything in great detail.
Wish you a happy weekend guys.


In World of Warcraft news

Hey there!
Sadly at this point in time , WoW on live is pretty much dead , main reasons being the fast approaching end of season 8 and the release of Cataclysm . Personally I pretty much quit live when the last patch landed mostly because it became boring and i was looking forward to Cata.
The boredom will eventually end and we've got quite a busy month in terms of events coming up.
So heres a little list of dates you should know:

October 11th:

Live patch of 4.0.1! As the Cataclysm draws ever closer, patch 4.0.1 will pave the way for the transition into the latest expansion. Players will gain access to a host of new systems features.
Classes: revamped talent trees, updated hunter pet system, new druid, hunter, paladin, and warlock resources, new Mastery stat
User Interface: improved Spellbook, new Guild display options, updated PvP interface, expanded and enhanced Professions tab
Systems: glyph updates including all-new Prime glyphs, new Reforging ability to customize item stats, new PvP and PvE currency system
And much more!

October 15-17:

MLG DC: MLG DC will be featuring the first MLG with the new Cataclysm 4.0 changes. We are awaiting the info on damage reductions or last minute resilience changes. It is very likely developers will double resilience effects to nuke the insane amount of damage (6-16k with 30-45k health pools) being done at level 80. This resilience change will most likely be temporary. Once most players have reached level 85, I am sure MLG will move to level 85 as well- making this tournament a very rare occasion. The opportunity to overcome level 80 damage with level 85 theory and win an entire friggin tourney when no one expects to to is very high! I wouldn’t be surprised if a complete underdog won the tournament, with simply the knowledge of 4.0 by his side.

October 22-23:

Blizzcon: All the World of Warcraft Regional Finalists will battle it out for World Champion Title. Will take out marma with their superior wizarding skills? Will EU blow us away with their LSDs? Will there be an abundance of slinky night elves running around covered in purple makeup? Oh yeah. 

Unannounced: “Patch 4.0.3: The Shattering

Shortly before Cataclysm launches, Azeroth as you know it will be changed forever. Patch 4.0.3 will bring with it cataclysmic changes to the Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor. Players will be able to find new and exciting sights to see and quests to do in the level 1-60 zones, all-new troll and gnome introductory experiences, redesigned capital cities, new race/class combinations, and more!”
I think this patch will come the tuesday after blizzcon, or the week before the Cataclysm release.

December 7: 

Cataclysm Launch!



Minecraft and L4D comic

In case you we're asking like I did, WTF is Minecraft let me enlighten you.
Minecraft is a game so new, it hasn't even a beta, it's still in alpha stage.
The storyline is everything I ever wanted, ever.
What is the storyline? It's simple you are alone on an island, and during the day you must create a shelter, play with an abundance of different resources on the island. During the night however things get tricky. You must survive a plethora of enemies that spawn in the darkness.
Despite it's graphics, the game has a lot of depth, and i mean a lot.
This is the video that put Minecraft on my wish-list and it explains the dept of the game perfectly.

NOTE: the game now is about 21$ it's alpha but if you buy it now any updates, the beta and the final version will come free, if you wait for the beta, it will have a higher price and the final release will probably have a 60$ price tag so hurry up.

In Left 4 Dead news.

Tought L4D never had a storyline? Only a succesion of stories where the characters have to travel from point A to point B, check again, the comic puts everything into context and sheds light on the background of each character. It has 4 parts, please enjoy and share your opinions in the comments below.

Epic Sunday

This epic Sunday, we the Pixel Shredder team present you a montage found on Darths channel and a montage by SandyRavage, my personal favorite. These iare simply not your average montages that usually get  crappy trailers and show clips of maximum a triple kill, I mean everyone can get lucky sometimes, oh no, these are 9 and 8 minute video containing bad-ass multikills done with the maximum ammount of pwnage possible. As I say, don't trust me, see for yourself.

The one on Sandy's channel:

Left 4 Dead 2 DLC

Minding my own buisness on youtube, suddenly I find this trailer. I barely played Left 4 Dead 2 at a friend played the first single player, so i got to say i haven't got much experience with the series, and if you ask me killing zombies all day long DOES get boring, however this DLC may have a storyline, which is all that i want more from the series.
Please enjoy and 'till next time, e-dwellers.
