F1 2011 – Quick Look

With the F1 season getting closer to its final race, Codemasters has brought us the newest iteration of their F1 game. After spending two days on the game and getting caught up in work, I finally have a chance to do a quick look of F1 2011. Among changes from the previous game are the new additions to F1 like KERS and DRS along with a handful of improvements all around. As this video was meant to show off the game and some of its changes, I will be uploading another video covering some pure racing over the weekend.

Custom Craft Ep.7 – Line Tower Wars Remade

No solo casting this week as Nick is joining me this episode for a game of line tower wars. Before venturing too far in this map, I would like to apologize for the sub-par audio this week as I was still trying out different solutions.

Custom Craft Ep.6 – Island Defence

Following up a request to show more games of this type on the previous Galaxy Vamprism video, this week I played Island Defence.

For those out of the loop, read on for a brief summary of the game and further information on how to find it.

Custom Craft Ep.3 – Squadron Tower Defense

This week on Custom Craft, Mike and Nick play a round of squadron tower defense. Different to most tower defense games, this one features teamwork based 4v4 gameplay. What makes the game the most addictive and challenging is the complexity of managing your minerals and vaspeen gas while using one of the many builders available. Unfortunately I cannot tell you how all of this comes together, so you will have to watch the video to find out.

We would also like to announce that we will be changing Custom Craft to Tuesdays. The change gives us more time to play and prepare these weekly videos.

Custom Craft Ep.2 – Monobattles

Good day everyone, we’ve got some new Custom Craft for you this week! Joined by our “special” guest, Etienne, Mike and Nick look at Monobattles, a custom game for StarCraft 2 with a very simple concept. Monobattles is a 4v4 game where each player chooses one attacking unit to build for the entire round. It makes for some very interesting strategic battles and is worth looking at for any StarCraft 2 player.
