Video Games: How to Master Dark Souls II Video Game


Dark Souls II

Dark Souls II is a rated Mature action role-playing open world video game developed by From Software and published by Namco Bandai Games.

Those testing Dark Souls II may describe this game as  definitely not being easy to play as well as a game that takes quite a bit of strategizing game-play to master. Others are hoping the game following the initial Dark Souls will not be too easy.  Of course video game players have different game playing skill levels so the difficulty of this game will probably vary from player to player.  For those of you who do not mind getting help in overcoming the challenges in this game, the director of the game himself, Yui Tanimura, has some tips for you on how to master playing Dark Souls II. 

You can forget about the game-play involved in the previous Dark Soul, since the action in the follow-up game does not follow it in any shape or form.  That being said, the mechanics of playing this game is similar to those of the previous game.


Dark Souls II

How to master this game entails how observant you are of your video game surroundings while playing this game.

In Yui Tanimura's words: "A main theme in all games developed by From Software, is to not fully explain all the elements of how to play and challenge players to figure it out for themselves.  We would like to encourage players to conquer the elements they face by paying attention to the surroundings and also being creative in strategizing [about] how to overcome the difficulties."

These tips can be described as being rather generic but may help you if you run into problems when playing Dark Souls II.  


Dark Souls II

In short -- Be ready to use your strategizing skills to master this game when Dark Souls II video game is released in North America approximately March 11, 2014. Dark Souls II will be playable on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360-- and later on the PC. A specific release date for Dark Souls II to be playable on the PC was unavailable at press time.

Video Games: Titanfall Leaks Closed Alpha Testing 2014


Titanfall video game

What would the the start of the year 2014 be in the video game world without a few leaks from the video game industry?  The first official leak of the year is from a "closed" alpha test of the video game, Titanfall. Titanfall is a highly anticipated video game developed by Respawn Entertainment and developed by Electronic Arts which was introduced at the Electronics Expo (E3) during Microsoft's press conference in 2013.


 Titanfall video game

A select group of people were given the opportunity to perform a closed-alpha test for this video game before it is released to the general public.  As expected, leaks have sprung up since this started -- which could be planned and well-orchestrated  to up the demand for Titanfall when it releases. Some actual video game footage from the testing was published and some were promptly brought down.

Looks like the gameplay consist of Call of Duty like actions where you attack enemies while traversing the map. I watched part of the video game action which had graphics that seem a little shaky to me -- but this may because the game is still officially in a testing stage.


Titanfall video game

During video gameplay, you will manage load-outs for your soldiers as well as the Titans.  Weapons will consist of an "anti-tank" also known as a titan, sidearms, and slots for grenades and bombs for enemy battles. There will also be a single, masterful weapon for your Titan.

A Titanfall fan took to twitter and asked if there would be open beta testing and the response given was "It's possible." I guess we will have to wait and see.

Titanfall video game will be released for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, and the PC on March 11, 2014 and will be rated M for Mature.

Video Games: A New Kind of Video Game -- Framed


Framed Video Game

Have you ever played a video game and wished you could change some element of the action, characters or other aspect of the story so the ending would be different.  Well, if you have, there is no need to keep wishing any longer.  The video game, Framed, is different and unique in that you will be able to actually change the sequence of the action frames which will result in a different story scenario.

 You may have thought from the title -- Framed--  that the story line involved framing someone of maybe a crime -- but this is not the case.  In a creative play on words, the video game has to do with changing frames in the game -- hence the name, Framed.


If you would like to visualize a picture of how you play this game, think of comic book panels and having the ability to change the panels to change the story.

Framed is developed by Loveshack Entertainment and the game will be playable on Steam and will also be  available at the App store.

Sounds like a game you would like to play?  You will be able to play this video game when it releases some time in 2014.  A specific release date was not available at press time.
