The Stanley Parable Review: You Are Stanley

By Trevor Magnani, October 22, 2013 0

There is a lot of buzz surrounding the 2013 release of The Stanley Parable. Originally conceived as a mod to Half Life 2, The Stanley Parable is now a standalone experience based upon the source engine. The Stanley Parable is one of many titles “Greenlit” by the Steam community. The game teases the player in it’s promotional materials trying to convey “what” The Stanley Parable is, but to disclose that in this review would effectively spoil the short experience. In essence, your goal is to explore the environment and soak in the experience.

If you are as confused by The Stanley Parable as I was, you should check out the demo, which gives you an idea of what the game is about. Even better, there is no overlap content between the demo and the full game.

Ubisoft Announces ‘Tom Clancy’s The Division’ From Massive Entertainment

By Trevor Magnani, June 10, 2013 1

“Tom Clancy’s The Division” is an open world RPG set in a world where disease has crippled the economy. The game’s teaser trailer was quite intense, but the gameplay demonstration shows how the game can be played on multiple platforms at the same time (console + tablet shown) and how players can jump in and out of gameplay. The atmosphere of the game could be described as a dystopian present-day Mass Effect. UI elements are projected in the environment enabling the player to be fully aware of their surroundings while in a menu. The game looks to be fully dependent on cooperative play and the environment looks very impressive. Unfortunately no date was announced, but we’re excited to get our hands on with The Division on the show floor. Check the extended trailer and gameplay demonstration after the break

Razer Blackwidow Ultimate 2013: Green Keys & High Noise

By Trevor Magnani, March 4, 2013 1

Razer has given us an update on it’s flagship keyboard for 2013, and I decided to pick it up to see what mechanical keyboards were all about. For years I’ve been using a variety of keyboards–all non-mechanical, but this time, I decided that I was going to make the investment in a mechanical keyboard. Friends and fellow writers told me that mechanical keyboards have a better “feel” at the sacrifice of a quiet operating volume. Considering noise wasn’t really much of an issue to me, I wrote that concern off, and opened up my new 2013 edition Blackwidow.
