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:

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.

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.
