Details On SOE's New Zombie Survival MMO H1Z1

I know, I know, anyone that is reading this is sighing and muttering to themselves, "Another zombie survival game...?" Yes, that is correct, Sony Online Entertainment recently revealed their new game called H1Z1. For anyone familiar with the likes of DayZ and Rust, you are going to see H1Z1 and immediately begin to draw comparisons. However, don't roll your eyes just yet. There is a ton of potential in this game and I am here to tell you why. 

H1Z1 is a zombie-apocalypse MMO that puts you in a world that requires the player to somehow manage to survive against all odds. As of right now the game is being created for PC, but plans for a PS4 version are apparently in the works as well. It will be powered by SOE's MMO engine, Forgelight, that the dev team says can support up to 2,000 players on a single server. A number of the current team members have previously worked on the other popular SOE game PlanetSide 2. It is obvious they want to create a massive world in which…

“So tell me about yourself…”

Don’t you just hate it when someone says that to you?  I mean, where do you go from there?  Sure I could say that my name is Patrick, I’m 29, and I have a wife and kid that I love to death…most of the time, catch me on the right day and I’ll cut you a really good deal, an even better one if you take them both…I kid of course.
But where do you go from there?  We have all been there or will be there one day, in a job interview, and the guy says those dreaded words “Tell me about yourself.”  Tridrakious did exactly that to me this past week. “Introduce yourself on the blog,” he says, “tell everybody about yourself.”   Now, half of me wants to play it cool, you know, I'm just an average guy doing average things.  The other half of is screaming “No you idiot, this is your chance!  Tell them you are god’s gift to women, newbs tremble at your feet, tell them it rains women’s under garments as you walk down the street…at the very least tell them you’re really cool”
Well anyway, …

Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness [GameCube] - Review

The 2005 follow-up to Colosseum might be indistinguishable to the layman. Unsurprising to me, Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness is nigh-indistinguishable from its predecessor. The 2005 follow-up to Pokémon Colosseum takes place five years later and still features Orre as a backdrop. The morally bankrupt Cipher has made a return and they’ve begun foisting their Shadow Pokémon on the land again. Snagging Pokémon remains the major conceit of the game, although there are a scant few wild Pokémon. Double battles are also the primary method of battling, which, in itself is different from the mainline games. This is essentially the same game as Colosseum, which was solid, but not great, and will appeal only to those Pokémaniacs, like myself. The game's ultimate Pokemon was the shadow Lugia, codenamed XD001. As mentioned, Cipher is making a return in the land of Orre, albeit, under different leadership. They still intend to conquer the world through the use of Shadow Pokémon, but there are thos…

Josh Intro

Hello! My name is Josh Gore. I have been following Just 1 More Level since I stumbled upon the All Your Base Facebook page about 6 months ago or so. This eventually led me to consistently following Tabor and Tridrakious on their weekly show on YouTube called "Just 1 More Topic". Right out of the gate, I could tell that these guys had a great passion for all things gaming. Their ambition and professionalism is a commodity that I respect immensely and it just feels like something special is brewing for Just 1 More Level. It is a journey that I definitely want to be a part of, no matter how big or small of an impact I can make.

A little about myself. I am 28 years old, happily married, and have two beautiful children. With my full-time job and family life, my gaming habits have slowed down to say the least, but I am still always on top of new trends in gaming as well as always playing something to stay on top of what is popular in the gaming world. My gaming alias is ScorpiuS41…

Pokemon Emerald [Game Boy Advance] - Review

Hello there! My name is John. Jeff has kindly invited me to begin publishing some of my articles on his site. If you're not already aware, this article was originally published on mybrainongames.com. It's a fantastic site and I highly recommend it. Not simply because I'm the purveyor of it... Well, actually that's exactly why. Anyways, please enjoy this article discussing Pokemon Emerald for the Game Boy Advance in light detail. If you have any questions or comments, leave one on this post or reach out to me directly via my blog. Thank you! Classically, the mainline Pokémon games come in threes. The first two launch together while the third, usually an enhanced amalgamation of the previous two, releases about a year later. Pokémon Emerald is the enhanced remake of Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire – the first two Pokémon games on the Game Boy Advance. I adored Ruby when it released in my freshman year of high school. I clocked well over 200 hours with it before moving on. Afte…
