Kate: Puzzle


One of my favorite PC games is Mirror’s Edge. Has a lot of strong points which include a cool story, lots of action, an amazing soundtrack and a splendid artwork.

I guess that is why I enjoyed it so much, because of the simplistic abstract artwork. I even got a tattoo with the logo of the game. This was planned a very long time ago. Wanted something simple, black, something that should remind me of fun times. And I went with the logo of Mirror’s Edge.

Thing is… A tattoo just demands another one.. And then another one… Just like Pringles, you cannot have just one :)))

I plan to get another one saying “Silent Hill”, I just have to find the perfect font for it. But for now I am very pleased with this one and I am very fond of it. This morning I woke up and after playing some Dead Trigger (android zombie FPS), I listened to one of the songs from the Mirror’s Edge Official Soundtrack. It is called Kate (Puzzle). Harmoniously pleasant to hear. Produced by Solar Fields.


Warcraft Official Trailer

June 2016 is the official date for the release of an epic journey into a fantastic world, a live action adaptation of Blizzard’s hit game Warcraft.

Under the motto: Two Worlds. One home we will have the chance to enter the battle between Orcs and Humans, visiting places that were depicted in the games. Directed by Duncan Jones, Warcraft: The Beginning looks promising.

Dog Pound: Rage, Aggression And Spirit

Extreme situations makes the human being to act in various ways. When incarcerated, a person can find his true-self, ready to risk everything for a natural order of things.

Dog Pound reveals the stories of three trouble-making minors that end up in a correctional center. One for assault, one for theft and the last one for possession of illegal substances.

We have some funny moments, dramatic ones and action – all mixed up to create a good movie. When fighting is the scene’s theme – this movie cannot disappoint. Brutal yet smart, this film offers the image of a correctional institution where the right ways are not properly propagated.

The conflict with the others is inevitable. When the riot starts – we receive the image of a raged animal, which cannot believe in anything else than aggression. Fighting is evil, yet is is used almost permanently in this world.

Dog Pound talks about many things including the alteration of the relationships with friends and family, illegal activities in prisons, racial conflicts, inexperienced prison guards, responsibility and a link between the work action and personal life.

It’s complete story about different people. We are seeing what they think, what they want and what they need. Freedom is among those wishes.

Gaming 101: Enclave

What makes a person become a gamer?

This question has so many answers that I don’t know where to begin with them. My straight answer would be that a person chooses to become a gamer when he or she finally wants more abstract worlds to explore and wants to see that creativity can be very useful.

An epic fantasy conflict. Battle after battle, good versus evil, heroes and villains, everything under a single name – Starbreeze Studios’ Enclave.

Enclave tells the story of the eternal war against forces of darkness. This third person action game was meant to let the player take control of one of the two sides engaged in battle.

There are two campaigns – the Light Campaign and the Dark campaign. Each one of them tells the same story but in a different way.

Centuries ago, the Kingdom of Celenheim was invaded by the armies of the demon lord Vatar. His mission was to harness the magical powers of this land and become invincible. After a fierce battle, one of Celenheim’s heroes managed to gather all his powers and create a chasm that destroyed Vatar. But this action led to the separation of the lands and everything was about to change. After many years, time in which Vatar’s army grew impatient and the rift that separated the lands was changing – another period of conflict was about to be born.

The game is quite good, with both good and bad elements. You have a variety of heroes to choose from in each of the campaigns. I prefer for the Light campaign the Knight and for the Dark one, the Beserker.

The hack and slash action is repetitive. There is no defined strategy in winning every battle. You can use swords, crossbows, daggers and knives but you cannot try different combos or movement-attack compilations. I prefer to use Dwarven Sword and a Shield rather that to continuously use the same magical attack over and over.

Of course that Enclave is based upon a magical combat system too, but I prefer weapons instead of cheap tricks. And the same thing is available for every RPG game I play.

What I really appreciate about this game is the back-up weapon system. Practically, you can have two weapons. If your knight is equipped with a Long Sword, you can also add to your character a crossbow and so.

Before you start a mission you will be able to equip your character using the gold amount you managed to find in the previous maps.

The art-style is amazing. There are lots of scenes in which the environment is gorgeous.The structure of the game is also a bonus point. From a great menu to non-interactive cut-scenes and details about the plot to the actually game-play action, everything was designed to offer the spirit of the dark medieval combat.

Gaming 101: Half Life 2

Probably one of the best stories ever created was offered by Valve through Half Life in 1998.

A different perspective upon science, technology, war and fantasy – the one who led us into the unimaginative was no other but Gordon Freeman. This character became an icon, a hero among heroes and Valve was thinking about expanding his story with sequels to the original game.

Today we’re talking Half Life 2.

I guess that Freeman is an unwelcomed guest everywhere he goes.

Right after G-Man orders you to Rise and Shine, because the wrong man in the right place can make all the differences, you enter City 17.

Your adventure begins after you meet up with Barney and get chased by the Civil Protection. Feels like a deja vu ain’t it…

New characters along with old ones, new enemies and new exciting adventures. Half Life 2 is about…science, as we all know it. In the beginning you’ll have to visit Dr. Kleiner’s lab and use the ageless portal, now with some modifications. And of course that something must go wrong and you end up in another place than the right one. That’s okay..it’s just the way things go here with all Black Mesa personnel.

The first weapon you get is the…crowbar, the one which made the original game famous.

Most of the HL2 weapons are new concepts of the old ones. Pistol – USP Match, .357 Magnum, Shotgun – SPAS 12, Sub-Machine Gun – MP7, Crossbow and so. There are also significant changes in the enemy line. New units along with the old ones: headcrabs, zombies, barnacles, ant-lions, scanners, man-hacks, hunting-choppers, gunships and other elements.

Everything is put in order to create an extraordinary action environment. Half Life 2 is based on combat, and less on how to think your way through. Of course that are some occasions in which you can use your head to think of something useful. For example, in Route Kanal, you have many barnacles waiting on the ceilings. Using a barrel with a flammable substance can help you get rid of them.

Some different example could be the use of the Gravity Gun, to obtain a battery in order to open up a passage in Sandtraps.

Another interesting fact is being able to control ant-lions. Organize your ant-lion army and make it attack anything.

If I must describe the game in just one word – it would be awesome.
