BFF Report - Minecraft - No, It Isn't Another WoW Clone..
2010/09/02 at 2:48 PM
That's the first thing I thought when this game was recommended to me, but can you blame me? With the constant onslaught of free2play WoW rip-offs, seeing anything "____Craft" is suspect. Minecraft is nothing close to what I had expected. It is a sandbox environment where you're given the ultimate set of virtual Legos, and to quote the website, "..a game about placing blocks while running from skeletons."
If I can sum it up even further, it's like FarmVille plus zombies, minus the shame... and minus the FarmVille, knawmean? To top it off, the classic version is free and runs in your browser.
Vindictus, the 'Hack n' Slash' F2P MMO, Has Been BFF'd (??)
2010/08/26 at 1:19 PM
Let's take Fable, strip down all the RP open-world nonsense and replace it with everything we've learned from the past 17 'Street Fighter II' games. Then sprinkle in some MMO elements, some glow, and make it fit the lore of Nexon's ongoing MMO series, "Mabinogi" but call it VINDICTUS...in the U.S.
If you read that with any negative connotation, you may be surprised at just how well this product has come together thus far...
As always, you can catch video extras and gaming randomness on my
Tired of City of Heroes Talk? Good, the BFF Report Has Some Words..

That's right, besides my outstanding submission to the
City of Heroes Character Creation Contest
, I got to spend the last couple of weeks resurrecting awesome cartoon superheroes and wearing leotards. It's been quite the experience, to be honest... revealing could be a better word for it. I really was pushing this report down to the wire though, within minutes of wrapping up the shoot, beta came to an end. Sadly, this also means no one will ever get to see my amazing japaneserobocop hero. :(
I Survived the Goblin Starting Zone and All I Got Was This Stupid BFF Report

All I have to say is, the Goblin starting experience was clearly directed by Michael Bay.
Oh, and balls.
The BFF Report..er.. Reports from the Worgen Starting Zones!
2010/07/29 at 1:22 PM
I finally got into Cataclysm and with it, over 800gb of in game footage that I have to somehow squeeze into these tiny ten minute segments. The first piece of coverage I'm offering up is a walkthrough of the Worgen starting zone. Besides all the bareback riding, missed opportunities for good Twilight jokes (is there such thing?), and epic phasing abuse, Blizz seems to have taken a completely different approach to creating these zones than what we are used to.
Think Westfall... probably 80% of the quests are centered at Sentinel Hill, Gilneas is the complete opposite. I found myself doing 2-3 quests at each outpost/abandoned house/street corner before moving on to the next mini-hub. This was cool and all, but I found that (besides Grandma Wahl) in the end, I didn't really care about any of them. I mean, Ill never forget Mankrik, Jitters, the fat drunk in Westfall hills, but these guys? Who cares!
*OMG SPOILER ALART!11*
It's not like I'm going to see them again anyways...
The BFF Report Welcomes You to the Future...?
2010/07/22 at 12:59 AM
When I first walked in the door at E3, there was this super attractive young lady (shocker, right?) who took my hand and escorted me over to this giant, baby food orange booth. She likely picked me because of my incredible aura of masculinity, and not because Dolby was standing right behind me sporting a super giant news camera, amirite? She dropped a funky PS3'esque controller into my, now sweaty, palm and introduced me to the future of gaming. Sort of..
You guys ever heard of this fancy "cloud computing" technology that allows you to access documents from virtually any computer terminal? Well, replace those silly DPS calculators with games and you have OnLive. The game I was playing was not hosted by any console or gaming PC anywhere in the vicinity, but rather being streamed, live, over the interwebs, to the giant LCD TV in front of me. The first thing that came to mind was "LOLOLLOLatency," but after ninja tapping the controller a few times...
btw, I got her number.
