14/05/2015 NW200 Thursday Night Race Night!

With Thursday now being the 1st Official Race Night of the NW200 I am happy to bring you the official results and the a nice photo gallery of some of the action from the Juniper Hill Chicane near Portstewart.  This is a decent vantage point for taking some decent photographs as the bikes are well slowed down for reaching the chicane, something the riders aren’t to fond off! Guy Martin for example started a bit of controversy for being ‘Bored to the back teeth!’

Unfortunately tonight we only got two of the three races completed, a red flag halted the 3rd race, thankfully no one was injured badly, however following consultation with the riders a low evening sun (as pictured), and time constraints meant the third and final race could not be run and was postponed until Saturday’s racing.

10 Second Game Review : Wolfenstein ; The New Order

I only ever do my 10SGR when I have actually completed the game. For Wolfenstein I am a little behind due to playing other games and to be honest had I not had a little extra time off from work I may well have missed out on this game, which following its completion, I now know would have been a travesty.

The time span is 1946 World War 2, the Nazis are winning, the War Machine consisting of robots, evil doctors, sadism and really vicious dogs is ripping through the world at an alarming pace. You, our hero B.J. Blazkowicz, are fighting to make the difference.

However a horrific head injury sees you hospital bound, destined to never wake up, where you are cared for daily by the beautiful Anya and her family.

14 years later a sequence of events will waken you to a world you don’t recognise. The war is over and global Nazi domination has occurred. For you the resistance now starts. You team up with a small band of Resistance fighters and time to take it to the Nazi horde begins!

Now for the game itself. First person shooters are everywhere. However Wolfenstein has history. Proper history. A big back bone of being amongst the first. For me it is a shame that more hasn’t been done with the series in PS3 / 360 genres. But as a PS4 title I happily welcome it into my collection.

This isn’t a solely next gen title and it shows. It still looks magnificent, it’s hard to explain but it doesn’t look completely next gen. What properly sets Wolfenstein aside from the countless other shooters though is its story. This is a proper story driven game. Not a single player game bundled on top of another multiplayer kill fest.

The story is addictive and immersive. It connects you with B.J Blazkowicz and your allies. It develops so well that you will emphasise completely with their plight and your Nazi killing tendencies. As you take out the main ‘baddies’ you will feel accomplished and at the end you will feel… You will certainly feel something!

And you will certainly be looking a sequel!

Another point that on this game properly got my attention is the soundtrack. It is pretty much perfect. The tense and often difficult boss battles are fought to a thumping soundtrack that just matches in magnificently. The story elements are also matched with music that compliments the scene every time. And even when having to take a few attempts at some of the difficult moments in the game I found that the soundtrack removed the aggravation at the repetition.

To summarise. Buy this game. Play it through and be immersed by the single player player campaign. Its developing and wild story will see you in Germany, England, outer space and even completing a moon walk all the while taking on waves of crazy Nazis, huge (and really huge) robots, armoured dogs, coupled with trying to balance your love life. Oh and you’ll get a laser!

A great game!

The Last of Us Remastered

The idea of the 10 second game review is simple, I have ten seconds to talk you into or out of parting with your hard earned cash for a new game.

This one however isn’t new, it is ‘Remastered.’ Don’t let that put you off thought as this is simply a remastering of one of the greatest games of the last decade – so this review is simple, turn the computer off, get to the shop and buy it, now!

If you are interested, or unaware, you play the part of Joel, a smuggler tasked with saving humanity in a post-infection ridden world which has been completely ravaged by the ‘Infected.’ These guys are mean and will kill you. You have been given the task of securing humanity’s survival but you know only too well of the darkest sides of that humanity – queue opening scene – and enjoy!

Oh an you get all of the extras and add-on content too – which is also great!

Back from a Summer Break…So Here’s some Kaley Cuoco on a Summer Break!

Firstly I would like to apologise to everyone for my extended silence but I simply took a little summer break.  Thanks to everyone who contacted me during this break with queries, questions or just to say hello.  But I am back now and have come back with some great stuff to get posted up.

I will start of with my apology gift to you all – a small but awesome gallery of The Big Bang’s Penny – Kaley Cuoco on the beach!  What a way to spend a 4th July 2014.  This alone would be a great reason to be American, have the 4th July as a holiday and to go to the beach!

Enjoy!

The Last of Us – This Gaming Generation’s Perfection?

20130904-004604.jpg

This isn’t so much a review,there are loads of them out there, from professional review sites which all describe this game in great detail. Also it isn’t a preview, the Last of Us has been out far too long for that!

Instead it is just some thoughts I felt I had to share after spending close to 17 hours in this beautiful but devastated Naughty Dog view of the Zombie Apocalypse.

I started this game when it came out a couple of months ago, but due to other commitments only got about an hour into the story, after a (unintentional) long break I got to sit down in front of my ps3 again and decided it would be rude to try and start from where I left off, so I started again. Believe me that’s no big deal as now that I have finished it I will easily sit down again and start it from the beginning.
