Mysterium (PC Game)

A digital translation of a classic board game, Asmodee Digital’s Mysterium is a must-buy for anyone that is a fan of the physical game. The company has made a tittle that is bright, vibrant, and engrossing. Visual elements (animations, sound) are a nice touch to the game, with great enough depth to stay fresh after a number of games. The only issue that we experienced was the scrolling aspect; while it is a hard choice for the designers to have all the cards rendered visibly, it does take a minute to figure out what is going on.  Continue reading “Mysterium (PC Game)”

The Deadly Tower of Monsters (PC)

The Deadly Tower of Monsters (PC, Available Now) is an interesting action game that goes and calls upon the rich tapestry of monster and other cult movies to create an engrossing experience for players. The game itself is fairly simple in that one needs to dispatch a variety of movie monsters including T-Rexes, octopi, monkeys and UFOs that feel pulled from movies of the modern (1950s-1960s) era.

Black Desert Online: 2016’s Best New MMORPG

The wife and I have been fans of MMORPGs for quite a few years and have been active on titles from a year or two on different offerings. The great many of these titles simply tried to recreate what has been done very successfully by early forays into the style without providing much difference to the overall play of the game.

Upcoming 2016 Games

Some of you may know that I’ve always been an avid gamer. I play almost any roleplaying game that comes out for the PC. This past year I have played several games like Fallout 4 and Game of Thrones.Fallout_4_cover_art

I really enjoy using my computer to game because I don’t have to deal with the ever upgrading consoles like PlayStation or Xbox. It’s easier to replace items like RAM and video cards than to buy a whole different system.
When I play a video game I look for a few different things. First, topic. I don’t like games that you need a lot of back story to enjoy every game should be self-contained, tutorials should be learn as you go and take less than 10 minutes.

I don’t like games that take a long time to learn the rules. That’s why mobile games that are more casual are easy to play. My favorite mobile games are Candy Crush Saga, Yahtzee, and Pocket Mortys. I also enjoy card games like solitaire and blackjack and sometimes I like to try my luck and have my shoot of adrenaline on sites like Mansion Casino – they have lots of cool stuff on there and you can even play for free in practice mode. You can click here to try it.

I really think that gaming is a good way to relieve stress. Gaming can create another dimension where you can express yourself. For example, video games like Fallout 4 are even adding the ability to customize towns and structures in games combining the traditional RPG with simulation game, for a whole different experience.
2016 brings a New Year and whole new set of games to the table. Right now there are rumors that the Elder Scrolls series will be making another installment due before Christmas.

There is also talks the EA will be releasing the final game in the Mass Effect line, making 4 games in total. We really have a lot of new options coming later this year. One of the other games I’m hoping to another version of is World of Warcraft. When I was in college it was my favorite game. I use it as the gold standard when comparing the features of a new game. It makes it fun and exciting.

Superlux HMC631 Gaming Headset

The Superlux HMC631 Gaming Headset is a solid addition to the inventory of any player that would like a pair of headphones that are comfortable, customizable, and at the head of the class in regards to sound reproduction. The HMC631 headphones are able to playback music from bass-heavy (rap, EDM) to vocal-intricate (opera, country) genres in a compelling fashion. Furthermore, vocals (video game dialogue, phone calls) are clear and crisp without crackling or otherwise sounding muffled. When there are a multitude of voices / atmospheric noises, the HMC631 headset does not shudder from the challenge – everything is sorted out in a more than satisfying way.

Crossfade M-100 Headphones (Shadow)

Priced at a hair under $250, the V-Moda Crossfade M-100s represent one of the best pairs of headphones that we have reviewed at NeuFutur. The rugged build quality of the headphones ensure that they will be able to be toted around and put through the normal rigors of everyday life without seeming the worse for wear. This is due to the considerable amount of metal (rather than plastic) that are used in the creation of the headset;  The fidelity of the playback of the M-100s ensures that listeners will be greeted with lows, highs, treble, and enough bass to make any music shine brilliantly. The quality of the audio is leaps and bounds above other products as a meeting of the audiophile minds have ensured that purchasers will be given the truest recreation of whatever music or voices that are present.

Turtle Beach Ear Force XO SEVEN Gaming Headset

The gulf in quality between the best and the most lacking headphones available for the Xbox One is considerable. The Ear Force XO SEVEN gaming headsets by Turtle Beach represent the high end of the spectrum, marrying an approachable price point ($100-150) to a rugged build and large amount of functions. The audio produced by the 50mm Neodymium drivers allow for faithful reproduction of the highs and lows. Voices (whether in-game or player responses) are audible and capture the high and low sides of things. The ability of the headset to produce a large number of sounds and keep them separate no matter how busy things get is perhaps the strongest check in support for the XO SEVENs.
