English: A black “Elite” Xbox 360 console by Microsoft. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
Microsoft announced the new Xbox console as Xbox One. I think Xbox One will definitely be a worthy adversary to PS4. Now, after seeing some details of Xbox One, I can’t wait to see what PS4 will bring to the game. Xbox One and Ps4 will definitely give more life to the console market. How come? What people forget is that consoles, although have became the computers, are not providing the experience that the computers are providing. How come? Consoles are cheaper than most computers, and they are there to provide a complete experience; unique experience that comes in a single package. Computers can do the same, but computers are more expensive. Computers give more freedom to users when it comes down to choose what sort experience the users want to have, but it does require the users to think for themselves. For an example, users can use computers for entertainment and work, or they can combine all experiences into one, but these customization of experiences require users to make choices and sometimes build the machines themselves. Console on the other hand is uniquely made to provide a unique experience. This is why I think people will go on to show support for consoles even though the line between consoles and computers is getting more blur each day. Anyhow, check out the Xbox One in details by watching the playlist of the Xbox One videos right after the break. Enjoy!!!
Neverwinter is still in beta. I have to say I like the game. I only have two characters so far. One is level 16 trickster rouge, and the other one is a low level guardian fighter. I have to say trickster rouge is really fun, and powerful too. I got only one death from playing trickster rouge from level 1 to level 16, and the death was at level 16 as I fought way too many orcs at one time. Anyhow, I found out that playing guardian fighter is more exciting and even more fun than rouge trickster as it’s harder to play a guardian fighter. I died way too many times when I played guardian fighter. Also, I needed to buy way too many health potions to keep my guardian fighter alive. Luckily, I found out that by using a skill — I forgot which but its function allowed me to hide behind the shield and attack at the same time — which had helped me tremendously in term of keeping my guardian fighter alive.
Anyhow, Neverwinter has many races and classes for gamers to create a character. This game really does remind me of old school MMORPGs, but Neverwinter is so much more than old school MMORPGs. Neverwinter got better graphics, skill mechanics, combat mechanics, and the list goes on. I have to say, if you had the love for one of the old school MMORPGs such as Dark Age of Camelot, you might like Neverwinter. Obviously, you don’t have to take my words for it, because you can watch my Neverwinter beta gameplay for yourself. Neverwinter beta gameplay episode one is right after the break. Enjoy!!!
Afterthought: What I don’t like about this game is that it’s free to play but pay to win. I like the free to play part, but pay to win is something that I want to avoid at all costs. You see, I prefer to pay monthly subscription to play a game than how you have a game that demands free to play but pay to win. Nonetheless, if you don’t mind about pay to win, then Neverwinter is a really good game. You can check out the video beneath this paragraph to see what the fuss about Neverwinter’s play to win. The video isn’t mine, because I found it on YouTube by searching YouTube. Nonetheless, please enjoy it!!!
