A highly opinionated avid PC gamer, Poorna blindly panics with his friends in various multiplayer games, much to the detriment of his team. Constantly questioning industry practices and a passion for technological progress drive his love for the video game industry. He pulls no punches and tells it like he sees it. He runs a podcast, Gaming The Industry, with fellow writer, Joseph Bradford, discussing industry practices and their effects on consumers.
Not one week ago, I too like Butters proclaimed, “I don’t play World of Warcraft.” Little did I know how much that would change. You see, I’m a complete newb. Yes, this dude right here -- the man writing this article on a website literally called “MMORPG” -- had never played World of Warcraft.
This past weekend, a few journalists and myself were flown out to Las Vegas to cover the H1Z1 Pro League (I’m working on a full editorial with my thoughts on the whole event for GameSpace, so stay tuned). We were also shown off some PS4 footage for the reveal announcement yesterday. I had the opportunity to sit down with Tony Morton, Lead Systems and Combat Designer, and pick his brain on some of the technical details, mechanics, and yes, Fortnite.
H1Z1, the free to play Battle Royale game on Steam from Daybreak Games, is coming to PS4. In a press release today, Daybreak Games has revealed that H1Z1 has been tuned specifically around console and the console gamer.
All we had to do was find the nearest Resistance Cache House. The low sun drifting majestically through suburbia masked the unadulterated chaos that was about to transpire. Myself along with fellow writer, Joseph Bradford, and our other two friends, Pete and Ralph, were tasked with finding the nearest Resistance Cache House. This is Earthfall, a new co-op shooter that’s on Steam’s Early Access.
Hunt: Showdown’s concept had me intrigued ever since I first got wind about it last year. You and a partner are Hunters tasked to hunt down a monster in a hauntingly beautiful map by following clues using your Dark Sight (think Arkham Asylum Detective Mode). Along the way, you’ll have to avoid gloriously grotesque creatures who are all trying to kill you. In short, find monster. Kill monster. Banish monster. Evacuate.
