Mr Game - Wednesday 30.10.13, 10:11am

Perfect World Entertainment, Inc. and Cryptic Studios announce Shadowmantle, the second free expansion Module to Neverwinter, the widely-acclaimed free-to-play action MMORPG set in the Dungeons & Dragons Forgotten Realms universe from Wizards of the Coast.  Featuring the new Hunter Ranger class, Shadowmantle releases later this year. In this second free update, players travel to Neverwinter Wood’s’ deepest region, discover new artifacts, and even choose a second paragon path.

Shadowmantle, the second Module for Neverwinter, is a free content expansion in which players tackle the Dread Ring campaign. Deep within the Neverwinter Wood lays the Dread Ring, a massive structure built for ritual magic. Players explore this broken but still powerful region and fight Valindra Shadowmantle’s army, including an epic battle with the lich herself. In addition to the Hunter Ranger class and new playable content, Shadowmantle features new collections, artifacts, and Paragon Paths.

Neverwinter is an action MMORPG that features fast-paced combat and epic dungeons. Players explore the vast city of Neverwinter and its surrounding countryside, learning the vivid history of the iconic city and battling its many enemies. In Neverwinter, players can create their own quests and campaigns with the Foundry, a powerful content creation tool that allows players to seamlessly integrate their adventures in to the live game world.

Mobile sports betting

Edwin Huxley - Monday 16.09.13, 18:11pm

Following the launch of BT Sport there is more live Premier League football matches on TV than ever before.  But whether there is live football to watch online or in the comfort of your living room, there’s nothing like placing a bet to raise the excitement levels higher.

The virtual sports betting opportunities are almost infinite these days with a plethora of free mobile phone apps to choose from, like the iTunes virtual sports betting app. It’s very simple to use.  Just register an account, login and off you go.

Mobile Betting Apps offer plenty of virtual betting opportunities on football matches, horse racing and sports from all over the world.  The football betting offers many markets on which to place a bet including win-draw-lose, correct score, total goals, accumulator, each way betting, as well as Spread Betting.

Spread Betting has become very popular over the past few years.  It is also known as Asian Betting as it first became popular in the far-east.  The way spread betting works is that teams are handicapped according to their form, so that a stronger team must win by more goals for a winning bet. The handicaps typically range from one-quarter goal to several goals, in increments of half- or even quarter-goals. The handicapping attempts to make betting between the two teams a more even chance to win or lose, with the draw eliminated from the betting.

This definition probably sounds more confusing that it actually is.  But once you have a go you might find it makes a football match more exciting to place a bet, especially when there would otherwise be a clear favourite to win. For a more elaborate explanation visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asian_handicap.

Once you have placed your bets, you can choose to watch the event with the William Hill Virtual Sports Betting App via realistic streaming of the match or race highlights, follow the full horse or dog race, or just focus on all the goals, shots and saves from the match.

Whatever you choose, remember to bet responsibly and always within your means.

Payday 2: The Heist, PS3 game review

Mr Game - Monday 09.09.13, 07:31am

Payday 2: The Heist

Payday 2: The Heist

Payday 2: The Heist is a fast paced first person shooter game in which you take on the role of a master criminal for various heists to reach the payday.

Payday 2 has many different missions which can be completed either solo, with the aid of computer AI, or, in a four player coop team online where you can jump into the action at any time to play with friends. You can choose to attack the mission stealthily or just run in and start shooting but once the police have been notified you must prepare yourself for an incredible shoot off with an increasingly difficult unlimited supply of angry police officers.

Once you put on the mask you become able to take control of the game and perform the objectives, whilst stealing any loose cash and taking hostages. If one of your partners gets into a sticky situation freeing a hostage will mean they are able to jump back into the game which is usually vital and definitely makes the levels a lot easier playing in an efficient and well organised gang.

Complete jobs to earn cash and XP to level up your character, doing so will unlock weapons for you to purchase and use in-game. Successful completion of a job will also reward you with a lucky dip prize to enable you to furthermore customise your character; you can unlock new masks and customise them to stand out from the crowd and look the most badass! Levelling up also allows you to unlock more useful skills for a particularly field of expertise which will come in handy on the job. A well balanced gang will give you the upper hand within the combat situations of the game.

The levels are dynamic so will be slightly different each time to avoid a degree of repetitiveness. However they are based on the same map with the same content.  So it will be a slightly different experience each time you play, challenging you to think quickly and be able to adapt to the situation. This is where insider information becomes key, intel can be purchased before the start of the mission to give you an edge over the police and allow you to plan a successful heist, unless you get a cheap host who doesn’t want to pay out.

The game is a very enjoyable coop experience but lacks single player depth and the levels can become very challenging when playing solo; as typical of most games, the AI is about as useful as a blind man without a guide dog. However, as a coop game, Payday 2: The Heist should become a highly desired purchase for anyone looking for a good, fun first person shoot-em-up game.

Amusement Arcades to Online Jackpot Games

Terry Lane - Tuesday 28.05.13, 20:28pm

One of my childhood memories includes summer holidays to Margate or family days-out to Hastings, Folkestone and Camber Sands.  All would include trips to the amusement arcades where I could happily spend hours of fun playing on the one-arm bandit fruit machines, penny slot machines and family games of air hockey and bar football.

Amusement arcades still hold their place along the seafront of every seaside town but the machines no longer feed on pennies and stricter gambling laws and an awareness of addictive personalities has meant age restrictions are placed on certain machines such as cash machines  and jackpot games.

Amusement arcades have had to compete with the meteoric rise of video games and personal games consoles like the Sony PlayStation and Nintendo Wii, as well as online computer gaming.  But today hot jackpot games are as popular as ever.  Both online via special gaming websites and on a seafront or High Street in every town.

There are hundreds, probably thousands, of online jackpot games to choose from.  Many of which are associated with favourite cartoon characters such as the Pink Panther, Fantastic Four and Blade or popular television shows like Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, X Factor and Deal Or No Deal.  There are even jackpot games based on popular board games including Monopoly and Cluedo.  The list is endless!

The internet has brought a plethora of betting game sites within easy access to millions of gamers in the UK and across the world.  It’s easy to get carried away when playing your favourite online game of choice, especially when you are on a winning streak.  But remember to heed the very serious warning to always bet responsibly.

Mr Game - Tuesday 19.03.13, 18:57pm

Ashes Cricket 2013 by 505 games on X360, PS3, Wii U & PC

Ashes Cricket 2013

Ashes Cricket 2013 is due to be released on all formats from 21 June 2013

This summer, 505 games puts you in control of the ultimate rivalry in Test cricket with Ashes Cricket 2013. To be released for the start of the 2013 Investec Ashes Series, Ashes Cricket 2013 offers unique and realistic features for cricket fans and gamers alike.

Whether playing on X360, PS3, Wii U or PC, dynamic game play adds variety to each match. Players will have to adapt to varying and altering pitches; whether it’s a green seaming wicket or deteriorating fifth day pitch susceptible to spin and bounce. Weather forecasts will also change, altering the course of the match; overcast conditions will be more conducive to swing, while sunny days are a batsman’s paradise.

Ashes Cricket 2013 includes a brand new game engine creating a truly authentic gaming experience. Batsmen have 360 degree control over shot placement, requiring impeccable placement and timing to build an innings. A new line and length bowling system gives bowlers the tools to set plans for batsmen throughout a day’s play and players have complete freedom to set a field of their choice. For those who prefer to be led however, there are options for intelligent automatic field placement.

Connoisseurs of the game will be able to play the complete 2013 Investec Ashes Series, with official England and Australia teams, however those more interested in the short form of the game can take on the rest of the world in limited overs tournaments and leagues.

“We are delighted to be able to announce some of the key features for Ashes Cricket 2013,” commented Ralph Pitt-Stanley, General Manager for UK & Export at 505 Games. “This game has been created with real cricket fans and players in mind. The new engine allows players to mimic a cricketers most important attribute, his technique.”
