Path of Exile - Second Character in Closed Beta



Kick back and relax. This is going to be a long one. This 4 hour livestream shows us playing around with our second character in the Path of Exile Closed Beta as well as reminiscent about our days in game development and much more.

Borderlands 2 - First Time Playing



Borderlands 2 is Borderlands. The game combines first-person shooter action with a Diablo-style random loot-fest. It has lots of charm humor. Besides combat feeling a bit gimped at the beginning I liked it.

Path of Exile (Closed Beta) - First Time



Path of Exile is a Action RPG (ala Diablo) that was in closed beta (now in Open Beta) that I caught wind of in a thread n reddit about Jaw Wilson's departure from the Diablo III team.

I have to say I love this game. The skill system is as deep as the ocean and I think I'm going to enjoy getting lost in this game very much! Expect more Path of Exile from me in the future.

As a note: Part 2 in of this video is much longer than part 1.

Sleeping Dogs - First Time Playing



Seelping Dogs was a fairly well made open world (read Grand Theft Auto) style game that replaces the majority of the guns with good old-fashioned hand-to-hand martial arts and street fighting combat.

After a few hours I found myself getting drawn into the story and may actually pick it back up at some point.

Dishonored - First Time Playing



Dishonored is by Arkane who created one of our favorite games Dark Messiah of Might and Magic. It is a first person games where you can kill enemies in multiple ways including various "magic" abilities as well as melee and projectile weapons. We dig it.

Pain Killer Hell & Damnation - First Time Playing



Painkiller is a straight-to-the-action FPS in the tradition on Unreal Tournament. If you love the gameplay and mechanics of Unreal Tournament you'll probably enjoy Painkiller. We had some good fun with it.

Dead Island - First Time Playing



In Dead Island we find a melee-heavy first-person zombie action/survival horror game. The action has a feel similar to the Condemed: Criminal Intent and a bit of Oblivion/Skyrim/Fall Out 3 feel to it. I enjoyed it quite a bit.

Dungeon Defenders - First Time Playing



In this video we give the 3rd-person RPG/tower defense game a go. We were surprised by how long the "build phase" of this game took and we're not sure it's our cup of tea but it was interesting.

Torchlight II - First Time Playing



We give Torchlight II a go around. If you like Diablo III or the original Torchlight than the game should appeal to you. Does it appeal to me in the first few hours? Eh.

Closure - First Time Playing



In the unique puzzle/platformer Closure you move around the level using light as an elements to reveal and hide which part of the level you can maneuver on. We enjoyed what we played of it.

Tomb Raider II - Getting Started. What Do I Think?



Tomb Raider II wasn't knocking my socks off the way Tomb Raider I did. Why? Watch and find out. (We hope we can push through because we really want to play all the Tom Raider games.)

Just Cause 2 - First Time. Too Much Fun!!



We had a ton of fun playing Just Cause 2 for our first time. Just Cause 2 seems to be a game that understands that games can be cheesy and unrealistic and super fun all at the same time.

Tomb Raider I - It's Been So Long



YouTube: Tomb Raider I - Been So Long by Jim Younkin

In today's video we kick it old school by playing the original Tomb Raider I. We really like this game. Not only did I get a strong whiff of nostalgia but the game itself was really good.
