Legacy of Kain: Defiance

LoKD turned out to be a great New Year present – both in the literal sense of the word and in quotation marks. In the literal sense – because it is a powerful, high-quality game, worthy of the most lively curiosity, and for most gamers – and the passage. In quotation marks – because at the end of the second level the game crashes into the system decisively and completely. All gaming forums are full of complaints about this problem – but at least a patch has been found, and we’ll even provide a link to it here, saving someone from possible torture.

Or, moreover, Frodo as an immortal military hero, who is leading the gnome detachments on combat campaigns, while improving his / her battle qualities (War of the Ring)? 🙂 However, all this today is a reality, as young Bilbo Baggins has just become a reality, according to the ideas of the next creation of Vivendi, he is a noble fighter and a magnificent thief in one person (although, if you think about it, the original book did Continue reading

Perfect MMORPG

Which MMORPG fans did not dream of a perfect online role-playing game, where everything would be done well and right? It is good that sometimes there are daredevils who are not limited to only dreams.

Gavan Woolery, the author of the Genesis project, conceived something truly extraordinary: a massively multiplayer online role-playing game where a considerable part of the content would be created by the players themselves, and the word “role-playing” would be returned to its original meaning.

Perfect MMORPG

Genesis is currently in an early stage of development, but something of interest has already been done. Firstly, these are the outline of game mechanics, and secondly, a significant part of the graphics engine.

The setting is not original here: the traditional fantasy Middle Ages. Continue reading
