For true gaming fans, there is no easy way to describe the awesomeness of Assassins Creed 3. As was announced for a long time, Ezio Auditore of Florence retired in glory, the roles of the main characters of Assassin’s Creed III will be divided between Desmond Miles (the hero of today’s series) and a new ancestor, Amerindian Connor Kenway. It is pleasing that Ubisoft has managed to keep secret a large part of the story, surprises and twists the miracle ingredient of the first hours of Assassin’s Creed III.
Unlike followers of Assassin’s Creed II, the third game in the Assassin’s Creed series is focused on the narrative side: there is a risk that fans of action or variety will be disappointed by the first part of the game. This extensive introduction was designed more as an interactive story and the elements characteristic to the open world are almost entirely absent.
Later, once players are familiar with Connor and the motivations behind his actions, the game will “open” like the old style titles of Assassin’s Creed, with numerous activities and side missions that can be addressed separately from the main story. The action of Assassin’s Creed III takes place during the War of Independence that led to the independence of North American British colonies and the emergence of the United States of America. Political intrigue always played an important role in the Assassin’s Creed series, but the third game was raised to the level of art.
With the good and the bad, Assassin’s Creed III is one of the most impressive games of 2012 and a clear step forward from last year’s Revelations. Many will probably still prefer Altair and especially Ezio instead of the naïve Connor, but when it comes to depth of story and the conclusions less obvious arising from it, Assassin’s Creed III is unrivaled in the series.

The current NFS Most Wanted has no spectacular storyline behind it, as was the case in the old Most Wanted back in 2005. In fact, the new game from Criterion abandons the whole concept of the story, giving the player a single concrete goal: exceeding the 10 pilots on the Most Wanted list and reaching the top of the list.
But unlike other arcade racing games, NFS Most Wanted addresses a different formula progression. Everything is based on the concept of Speed Points. Each victory, each drift, every pursuit with police can bring a number of such points. When you’re overcome some terminals, you can challenge drivers on the Most Wanted list. Although it seems simple in theory, the game is much more difficult in practice. Thus, the people at Criterion have decided to let players drive almost all the cars in this game since the beginning, the only condition to be fulfilled is finding them in Fairhaven City. So if you catch sight of a car with a logo above it, in an obscure corner of the map, you had better park next to it. You can immediately go from the wreck which you were driving at the time to the new supercar (or vice versa).
Each car offers only access to a limited number of five races (or stages), which can be gained through a finite amount of Speed Points. Thus, to achieve the necessary points accession shares in Most Wanted list, you have to drive most of the cars of Fairhaven City. The new Need for Speed Most Wanted is not perfect: the 2005 version fanatics will cry after the story and the ability to customize the appearance of hot rods and open game environment and the new progression system will not please everyone. However, despite these drawbacks, Criterion Games has created a quality arcade race game which needed a different name.

The first Portal game was without a doubt a pleasant surprise in the Orange Box collection launched in 2007 which brought together no less than five titles produced by Valve (Half-Life 2 Episode One, Half-Life 2, Half-Life 2 Episode Two, the Portal and Team Fortress 2). That little game proved to be “the icing on the cake”, showing that solving logic puzzles can work very well from a first person perspective, especially accompanied by a mysterious storyline, but also very funny.
Behold, almost four years after the appearance of the first Portal, the people over at Valve have decided to offer a sequel. Portal 2 has made a huge leap from a series of mini-games to a big, standalone game. First, Portal 2 is a much longer game than its predecessor. If the first Portal could be brought to completion in just 2-3 hours, continuing to offer a single player campaign can take up 3-4 times more. And because solving puzzles continues to become boring, manufacturers have put greater emphasis on the narrative side of the game. Thus, the puzzle solving sessions of Portal 2 are interrupted and spiced up by interactive cinematic sequences (done in the style of Half-Life), the player can learn more about the history of Aperture Science complex and artificial intelligence GLaDOS (antagonist of the first game). Unfortunately, these moments are too rare during the campaign, with the risk that some players will lose interest at some point.
For example, the first third of the game is annoyingly similar to Portal 1. Fortunately, the man characters involved remain as fun and besides GLaDOS and Wheatley, you have a robotic sphere with high aspirations. Portal 2 manages undoubtedly to shadow its precursor in terms of game quality, but without reaching its full potential. If the story would have been better integrated into the campaign, the creation of the valves could be truly spectacular. Under current conditions, however, it remains a very good game for Xbox, PC and PS3 users.

While most players were amazed at the quality of the first Far Cry graphics, comparing it with giants like Doom 3 or Half-Life 2, others believed, in terms of gameplay, that this game was nothing but proof of Crytek’s lack of experience (Far Cry was their first project). And here we are now, at the third game of Far Cry series, appeared on the market in time to conclude major launches during 2012. Ubisoft considered received criticism in the past and Far Cry 3 returns to the idea of fully exploring tropical islands in an attempt to combine open-world gameplay with spectacular cinematic sequences, which is typical for big-budget shooters today.
The story is interesting enough to keep the player constantly plugged in, motivating enough to lead him to finish the single player campaign. The main character is Jason Brody, a “rich kid”, which together with his friends and brethren, is kidnapped by pirates when he was visiting a tropical island archipelago. After a spectacular escape, Brody is forced to ally with natives to fight against kidnappers in his mission to liberate the others, becoming friends with them as he also experience a maturation process.
Important points of the story of Far Cry 3 are marked by cinematic sequences, played from the first person perspective of the main character. In these moments, the real stars of the game distribution shine: secondary and/or negative characters. Vaas Montenegro is the most obvious one, as he is a figure positioned in the center of the campaign to promote Ubisoft’s Far Cry 3. Given the history of the series which has not been very happy so far and the late launch (after competing titles such as Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, for example), who would have thought that Far Cry 3 will be so successful? Not only is it by far the best shooter released in the past 12 months, but has very good chances for the title of Game of the Year 2012.

PS3 fans from all over the world have been waiting to see how the new Devil May Cry version matches up to the previous game. It’s no wonder this game has so many players, all hooked and trying to find new screens and situations – luckily the new version will do that and give everyone a lot of pleasure. Customer testimonies and gamer reviews are in; here is what is being said.
Aside from the storyline adaptation, much of the older fans were concerned about how Ninja Theory will modify the gameplay feature of the series and in particular the battle, considered one of the most developed and complex games of this type. Well, luckily we do not have anything to worry about in this chapter. As a connoisseur of old series, as soon as you touch the new Devil May Cry, you feel immediately at home. Dante has the same weapons and attacks and many special combinations of previous titles making their appearance in DMC. Also power-ups were kept largely unchanged; upgrades are also familiar to those who played Devil May Cry before. News coming from the angelic and demonic weapons needed to break certain kinds of monsters and obstacles, and to navigate levels. If you were to look for faults, we can complain about the lack of lock-on to a particular enemy, in some instances Dante focusing on other monsters then the one he should be focusing on.
Devil May Cry does not use fixed angles to show the action (except in very few scripted moments), with a classic third-person perspective being chosen instead, where the player has full control the room. A very welcome change is the level design from Ninja Theory, being one of the best you will ever have the opportunity to meet in recent games. Boss battles should also be mentioned, which, although quite light, are particularly spectacular in appearance and the properties of these enemies are very well harmonized with the game environment.
In terms of difficulty, the default level of Devil May Cry is accessible enough to require playing without frustrating. Completing the campaign will to unlock advanced levels of difficulty, where monsters are placed in different locations, making the battles more difficult. Unfortunately, with a little perseverance, you can complete the game in 10 hours.

If you are dealing with huge amounts of stress lately, one thing I can recommend is to play video or computer games. Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo and etc. I read in one article posted in CNN that it has been proven to relieve stress.
It is noted that stress can cause nutrient deficiency in the body. With not enough nutrients in the body, certain parts will suffer the consequences and that include the hair. Since there is so few or even none of the vitamins and minerals needed to maintain hair, it will fall off and die by the clumps. Stress is also a main cause for severe hair loss in the body.
If you are not into video games, try certain drugs and medicines. Although, medicines can help with certain conditions, they can also have some undesirable side effects. Certain drugs do cause hair loss, like steroids, birth control pills, anti-clotting drugs, among others. As long as you are taking the drug, you are going to suffer hair loss but as soon as you stop taking the drug, you will recover and regrow your hair again.
Hair loss is a normal part of the process of aging, but it’s also normal that people will feel afraid of losing their hair since it is a big part of their appearance. Again, hair loss is something that people shouldn’t fear because science is now prepared. There exists a lot of treatments that can help you out with your hair loss problems, and here are a couple:
Surgical treatment is an option, but is only undertaken by those that have the money to pay for the procedure. One such treatment is the Tampa Hair Restoration Program by Haarklinikken. Under this treatment, hair is taken from parts of the head where it is abundant and then transferred or grafted to the places that have lost the hair.
When hair loss is not that severe, taking vitamin supplements can help one out with the problem. They simply take supplements loaded with the nutrients needed to maintain hair and prevent hair loss.
Think about it! Do not over do your self. Just relax and play games.
It Helps a Person Lose Weight
Think of exercise like you are playing games. Exercising burns fat, period. These fats are used by the body as calories, which are then converted into energy that the body is going to need when you exercise. Without energy, you wouldn’t be able to move as you would need for your exercise regime. You’ll also feel easily tired when you’re exercising with low energy levels. To answer that, the body will first consume its carbohydrate stores and then its own fats in order to produce calories necessary for supplying you with energy for your exercise. In the process, you are losing those stored fats and thus you are losing weight while gaining muscles.
It Deals with Stress
Video games can literally relieve stress. Now, in case you didn’t know it, exercise is a very good stress reliever as well. When you’re stressed, it means that you’ve some energies pent up inside of you that is just waiting to be released. By exercising – lifting weights, for example – you are actually releasing those pent-up emotions and energies when you’re exerting effort in your regime. Instead of letting those bottle up inside of you, you should instead release it so that you can be refreshed for the next day at work. This is also to prevent you from being depressed, as is the usual result when a person is too stressed from work or his immediate surroundings.
Aside from exercising, you can also undergo diet regimes in order to supplement your means of losing weight. You can do HCG injections, for example. These injections can be bought at your local weight loss clinic Clearwater that specializes in health products.
If there’s anything that is most synonymous with the video games, that would be the beach! Yes, the summer heat and breeze are the best reasons why one should flock over to the beach. It’s the season for it. Everyone is off from school for the summer, and even employees are making it a point to file for a holiday or vacation for a few days just to go to the beach and experience the summer.

Experiencing the saddest part of being in a relationship for quite some time is one of the most painful thing one experiences in his or her life time. Can you remember that day when everything vanished into thin air, as if all the colors of the world were gone? Almost all people who experience the love of being with some special person suffer pain when the relationship ends. The most painful part aside from it is the fact that you should move on with your life, and accept the fact that your special one won’t be with you as you do it. Moving on is really hard, but one should do it, right?
Avoiding the thought of ‘him’ or ‘her’ comes next with moving on. Those memories you had for that special someone would hunt you until you lose your mind, believe me. So make your mind busy instead. Work with something that would somehow make you forget. If you want to work, then work. If you want to eat, then eat. Just ensure that you are still keeping your nutrition and health trim and fit, since you don’t want to see your self so huge since you are too pre-occupied with getting your thoughts about him away.
But how do you start moving on? First things first, release all those locked feelings inside you and cry them all out. You might not believe it, but this would actually make you feel a lot better. Crying has been a natural thing for us ever since we are still a baby. And all those cries eventually dry up in time. Don’t keep those bitter feelings inside, release them all, and surely, somehow, you’d feel good after. Otherwise, you can play some video games to divert your attention to something else. It is enjoyable and at the same time, very entertaining.
Vitamin B12, otherwise known as Cyanocobalamin, is a member of the B-complex vitamins. Just like his brother vitamins, B12 is important in keeping your red blood cells healthy. Another exceptional benefit of B12 is its’ ability to kick start your metabolism. Vitamin B12 can be consumed by eating foods such as fish, poultry, meat, dairy products and eggs. But if you are a vegetarian, then there’s a chance that you are B12 deficient as this vitamin cannot be found in vegetables.
If you are not fond of eating foods rich in Vitamin B12, then supplementations such as shots and pills can help you have a faster metabolism. There are Vitamin B12 shots and pills from Trim and they can help you lose weight fast by making your metabolism work doubly hard.
If you got ham then I got ham because we are both got ham type of fellows. That is right we got ham and when we are in a city we tend to post to instant message baords very often and with a lot of fun. Did you have fun? I had fun and did I mention that I love ham?

E3 2011: Gotham City Imposters Gameplay Video metacafe.com 10 Jun 2011 – 2 min E3 2011: Gotham City Imposters gameplay video
When Gotham City Imposters was announced, it sounded a bit strange for a first-person shooter where you play thug gangs inspired by Batman and the Joker. Our first bit of concept art paints a picture on what the game will look like. It does look like most of the characters just found some stuff lying around their house to make up a Batman costume and go out to make vigilante justice. Not to mention with what appears to be different character classes, very similar to TF2 and Monday Night Combat. Some of the press has already seen the game in action but there’s no video or screenshots of the game so they might be saving it for E3. One thing’s for sure about this game, we may or may not be wearing hockey masks.
