Hello Nurglings!

So it’s finally time for some non-MTG-related news again, how about that? Awesome I know! So you may have heard of this game known as Minecraft (created by a well known man called Notch). You may also known that the company that stands behind the game is known as Mojang. Well Mojang is working on a completely new title called: Scrolls.

If you heard about the game from before, it may be that you heard about their fight over the name with Bethesda. Creators of the game: Elder SCROLLS V: Skyrim. Yup they wanted to be exclusive with the scrolls part of the name and took Mojang to court. You can read more about that here: http://kotaku.com/5828135/bethesdas-lawyers-object-to-name-of-minecraft-creators-next-game (It’s old and settled tho!)

MOVING ON

Scrolls is a game that’s been in a closed beta for a long time, but NOW on June 3d the game is going in to open beta! Which means that everyone can get a piece of the action. I will be looking in to the game as soon as a download button appears and you’re welcome back to read a review and even watch me live stream the game (if allowed) after the 3d.

The game itself is a mix of a collectable card (scrolls) game where you collect, buy and trade scrolls with other players. These scrolls are then used to create decks that you use to fight your opponent. The design of the playing-field reminds you a lot of the old Heroes of Might & Magic games, where you use unit position and magic to beat your opponent. The details on how the game is played and such will be up as soon as I try the game out.

Until next time Nurglings, take care.
Cya soon!

E3 – Microsoft Conference – The things I liked

Hello everyone and welcome back to the old me that actually watch E3 news and blog about it! Just watched the whole Microsoft Conference live, and that means XBOX 360 and Kinect. Following is the list of things that gets the thumb up from me.

1. Tomb Raider
I just love the look of this. Me and my brother was watching it and we bought nodded to his comment: This feels like Resident Evil 4 did when it came out at first. He hit the nail on the head, it really does feel like a new beginning for Tomb Raider, and in a great way! The in game presentation we just saw started with Lara being captured and trapped in a cave. Plenty of action, new look and feel and a style that will redefine how see Tomb Raider. I love you new Lara, if the game is as good as your new style, this will be a huge hit.

2. Minecraft On xbox 360!
It’s true! Notch you little bugger! Getting deals with huge companies like Microsoft without telling us before hand. You sneaky man. I love Minecraft, don’t play it much but I love it, and the fact that this will make the game even bigger. I don’t mind it, don’t mind it at all. As it is now, Minecraft on console will be exclusive for Xbox 360. Oh and also, you will be able to control the game with kinect… don’t know why that would matter…

3. Modern Warfare 3
I love the game series so I have to mention it, but really, honestly? It was one of the less exciting Call Of Duty game presentations. Still want the game though.

Let us continue with the less interesting moments and parts…

1. RYSE
Have you heard of it before? You know what it is? Didn’t think so. Go go games about Rome!

2. Kinect
So much Kinect!? It feelt like any movie trailer right now ending with the words NOW IN 3D! Either they’re having problem selling the damn thing or they are just very happy about having it. Don’t know what it is. But most games showed was about the whole Kinect business. Don’t care for it.

3. Halo 4
This is the start of a trilogy apparently that will keep the Halo series going. I’m sorry, great looking trailer. But… I’m just not interested
