ImGame Social Gaming Network

ImGame is an interesting mobile application that works like other social media apps but is geared specifically for gamers.  Check out some details below:

“ImGame is a new mobile app that allows users to add friends and check into games.  ImGame is creating a new social network for gamers, by gamers, to keep all of your friends in sync with who’s playing what, and when. 

ImGame has the following features:

  • See what your friends are playing, at any time. Get a visual history of what you and your friends have been playing, on any console.
  • No more “just missing” the gaming session.  Too many times we’ve rushed to get online only to find out your friends just stopped playing.  With push notifications you are notified the second a friend checks in.
  • With Pwnerships, the user with the most check ins to a game has bragging rights.  Only you can check in to “de-pwn” them.
  • Users can collect tokens by doing various tasks through the ImGame network, checking in to specific games on specific days, checking in with friends, or even on to specific consoles.

Who are we: We are just a few guys who love gaming and saw a huge flaw in the way we played.  All too often we would try and schedule a gaming time and end up missing each other.  It would be 15 minutes after a friend signed off, or I would be watching TV with nothing to do, not knowing that 3 of my friends were playingGears of War at that exact time.  ImGame remedies that.  If your friend starts to play Gears and checks in, you would get a notification telling you to get to curb stompin!”

Global Agenda Gameplay Videos

While I wait for BF3, Skyrim and Diablo 3 I decided to check out Global Agenda with a friend of mine.  It is not as bad as I thought it would be!  If I were playing alone it would be pretty boring I would imagine.  Check out the video up top for some a look at the games instanced team dungeon mission type things.  Check out the youtube channel for more videos!

Hitman: Absolution – New Gameplay Trailer

This is the game series that influenced me to chose “hitman” as my nickname and ever since I have been deemed hitmanjaret, or hitman.  I am surprised I have neglected the news on this game for so long.  Needless to say I am extremely excited for the new release “Absolution” and will definitely be purchasing it day one and playing it until the wee hours of the night.  Check out the new trailer above!  See more videos at their youtube channel.

New Mortal Kombat Movie? Looks like it!

Sweet!  I still watch the original a lot, sometimes for the music alone! MORTAL KOMBATTTTTT DA DUND DHADAUND DHAUDAN!

“New Line, in conjunction with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, is producing a new Mortal Kombat film, 14 years after their last adaptation of the popular video game franchise. Kevin Tancharoen, the man responsible for the popular web-series Mortal Kombat: Legacy (pictured), will be directing“I’ve always been a huge fan of the games,” Tancharoen tells EW. His first Mortal Kombat project was a proof-of-concept video meant to be shown only to studios, but which was accidentally posted to YouTube by none other than himself. “I was mortified at first because I thought I was going to be in a mess of trouble with Warner Bros.” (You can check out the video below.)”

Diablo 3 Pushed Back to 2012

sad face

Well Blizzard decided to announce today Diablo 3 will be delayed until early 2012.  As stated on their website “While this news might not be a complete surprise, I know that many of you were hopeful that Diablo III would ship this year. We were too. However, this week we pulled together people from all of the teams involved with the game to decide whether we felt it would be ready before the end of December, and we grudgingly came to the conclusion that it would not. Ultimately, we feel that to deliver an awesome Diablo sequel that lives up to our expectations and yours as well, we should take a little more time and add further polish to a few different elements of the game” 

I can say I am not too surprised. At least we will get more beta time it sounds like and more opportunities to get an invite. Head over to the D3 Site to get the full read.

Diablo 3 Friends & Family Beta Footage

Blizzard started the Friends & Family beta recently and If you haven’t already seen there is a lot of new Diablo 3 footage out there for our viewing pleasure!  Above is a cool video of a wizard doing what is called the Skeleton King Run.  I think my first character may be a wizard, they look pretty bad ass to me.  Keep praying for an invite and in the mean time check out more Diablo 3 beta footage on Youtube.com or Reddit/r/diablo.

Diablo 3 Character Resources Detailed

Diablo 3 Resources

“With the Beta tantalizingly close, Blizzard continues adding to their new Diablo 3 Community Site. This afternoon we got a glimpse of each classes’Resource System, complete with animated globes! Though this information is generally already known, by Blizzard posting an official page on the topic it seems the function of each system is finalized. Each system specifically supports the classes’ generic role in combat, though doesn’t completely prevent the possibility of creative, wild builds.”
