I am a huge fan of anything that has to do with space. Especially when space is portrayed in movies, books, and video games. When I stumbled across Kinetic Void in the Steam Community, I was very excited. Kinetic Void is a single player action simulator, made from the Indie developers Lumberingtroll Workshop on Steam. It is a greenlight item, meaning that it is an Indie game being supported and voted on through Steam and its members, which Steam is a video game digital store and hub for gaming. They are providing great opportunities for Indie developers like Lumberingtroll to get their games out there, like Kinetic Void.
In the game, you are in charge of your own ship, building your own ship, exploring galaxies, and running into different types of factions that may or may not like one another. Decisions are taken into consideration when coordinating with different factions, so be careful what you say, do or who you interact with. So far, Kinetic Void looks promising and intriguing with its innovative in-game physics and exploration capabilities. By visiting the Steam store, like I did, you can find more information on the game, its controls, screenshots and other updates from he developer. This particular game looks very interesting to me, but if it does not, take some time and browse other greenlight items and support your favorite game.

Diablo III (Photo credit: Piro*)
I am not surprised at the success of Diablo 3′s sales. Blizzard did a great job hyping up the game, and waiting 12 years or so added a little to the excitement. I have recently read articles complaining about Blizzard and the products it makes, and for some reason it is hard for me to believe that ALL those who complained and attempted to boycott blizzard have not played Diablo 3. There was a lot of griping about only being able to play online, however, considering the success of the game, the few percent that are not playing and boycotting it are missing out on a great gaming experience. In my opinion.

Initial Impressions (Mike, Joe, and Sarah)
Diablo 3. Wow, we have been waiting a long time. Is it amazing new gameplay? Is it an MMO since it has an auction house? Is it dumbed down? No, No, and ummm no. The game, Like Starcraft 2, is a refinement on a working core of an already great game. Not the usual game company sequal but rather the polish and work that Blizzard is known for. If you never liked the first two games, you likely won’t like this either. Multiplayer is easy to get going and even easier to play. Loot falls for only you (I definitely don’t miss dropping items on the ground to trade). I can see that crafting system is going to come in handy as well. I have been playing the wizard, who despite looking foppish, is quite powerful. This is especially true in multiplayer. The visuals and music of this game are amazing.

As Joe previously introduced me, I am Sarah, the fire mage. I enjoy numerous hobbies, including but not limited to:video games (RPG’s, MMO’s, FPS’s), Magic the Gathering, and I also dabble in tabletop RPG’s. I enjoy going to conventions, and hopefully I can start attending them more regularly. This is my first blog, and am very excited about it and I hope to bring a female perspective on the geeky things in life. More specific games I am currently playing are, Final Fantasy 13-2, World of Warcraft, Kingdoms of Amalur, and Tales of the Abyss. Also, I am very excited about Diablo 3.
