Magicka: Wizard Wars (PC) – Steam Early Access Update Info

magicka wizard wars logo Magicka: Wizard Wars (PC)   Steam Early Access Update Info

STOCKHOLM — December 18, 2013 — Paradox Interactive, a publisher of games and big fans of The Crystal Method, today introduced a variety of changes to Magicka: Wizard Wars, the online competitive multiplayer game where misspelling is deadly. Currently available on Steam Early Access, players of Magicka: Wizard Wars now have access to a Magicks Screen for their in-game wizard, where they can unlock powerful new Magicks to wield in battle. Gameplay will reward players with crystals forged of pure elements, and crystals can be used to unlock Magick spells to use on foes (and probably friends) in matches – such as the Mighty Hail, a massive ice bombardment that freezes a wide area and any wizards unlucky enough to be standing within it.

Alongside the newly added Magicks Screen, wintry content has also been added by way of holiday-spirited Imps, snowy backdrops, and the ability to equip snowballs as a weapon, which will freeze enemies dead in their tracks. What holiday is complete without a stressed out imp running you down? It sure beats shopping!

Grand Theft Auto Online (360 & PS3) – Press Release With Jobs Info

grand-theft-auto-online-featured-large

We are happy to announce that Capture – the newest addition to the collection of team-based modes in Grand Theft Auto Online, will be available today as part of the latest free automatic update on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live. With 20 new Jobs across four unique modes, this GTA twist on classic capture the flag style confrontations brings a whole new level of adversarial action to the world of Los Santos and Blaine County. Strategy plays a huge role as you run decoys, set traps and place obstacles to ensure your enemies don’t get close to your goods. These new Jobs are accessible in Freemode and spread across the four different modes described below. Read on for more details and previews of a few of our faves:

RAID
In Raid, you’ll have to fight your way into your opponents’ base and steal a package, then deliver it back to your base to score points. Reach the target score, or deliver more packages than your opponents do in the allotted time to win the match.

HOLD
When playing Hold, teams must collect and store as many packages as possible in their base. Packages can either be found on the map, or stolen from the opposing team’s bases. Reach the target score, or hold the most packages when the time runs out, to win.

Compete to get buses back to your base in ‘All Abhorred’.

GTA
As the ubiquitous acronym might suggest, GTA mode tasks players with stealing target vehicles located all around the map, before bringing them back to their respective bases. Each team must fight to steal more vehicles in the allotted time than their opponents.

CONTEND
In Contend, there’s only one package, situated in the middle of the map. Teams must fight to bring this package back to their respective bases, and once the package is captured it respawns in the middle of the map and is up for grabs again.

The contested package at the heart of a firefight.

Capture
Available as part of today’s automatic update for GTA Online, which also includes a host of fixes and dynamic tuning updates. For
details on those please check out the Rockstar Support page.

Random Game Facts – Final Fantasy IV Glitch

final fantasy iv glitch fact 300x300 Random Game Facts   Final Fantasy IV Glitch

Final Fantasy IV is my favorite game of all time and I’ve played through it 100% countless times, yet in all my years of playing it, I don’t think I ever encountered this glitch even once. Either I have really good luck or it is nearly impossible to trigger without intentionally doing so.
