Gamereactor has been a huge part of my life over the last 17 years. I started out as a staff writer at the Swedish site / magazine re-launched/launched back in 2002 and soon thereafter I stepped in as an editor. I went on to work on the English site as it launched and the video side of things soon became my domain. I really do enjoy travelling to events and interviewing game developers, getting to know the people who make the games we love to play (and the ones we may not love quite as much). In many ways it's as much about the people as it is about the games, if not more. It's truly been my pleasure. But as I may have given away there in the first sentence I'm no spring chicken and I want to try my hand at other things and that's why the time has come to say goodbye. There's no drama, simply the slow realisation that I need a change of scenery and a change of duties.

We love games here at Gamereactor (the clue's in the name, right?) and when it comes to the games we play we're looking to expand our scope a little. From here on in we're going to start writing about our experiences wit

The recent news that No Man's Sky can apparently be completed in around 30 hours, and the reaction that this news has brought with it, certainly has caught my attention, and it has me pondering the question: what is the ideal length for a video game?

Two very different companies pitched us two very different shows during E3 this year. Sony and Microsoft, not for the first time, went head to head in unveiling their latest wares. Microsoft had an ace up their collective sleeve, but Sony were able to show a line-up of games that had the audience purring. Let's get it out of the way now and say there wasn't a clear winner, although if I was pushed into making a call, I might say that Sony edged it.

This blog will spoil some parts of a mission halfway through the main story of Fallout 4. If you haven't made it there you may not want to continue reading. I was about 60 hours into Fallout 4. I had mainly been focussing on side quests, exploration the Commeonwealth looking for weird locations, collectibles, guns and equipment. But the time had come to progress the main story a little, partially because I wanted to progress the Brotherhood of Steel questline (they're intertwined), and this is where I came across the first truly rage quit level frustration I'd had with the game. It's an open world RPG from Bethesda so you expect some issues and you tend to save often. But nothing could prepare me for The Molecular Level, and more specifically it's final section where you build a fancy device to teleport you into the Institute.
We've all had it happen to us. A game we've enjoyed is being taken offline, servers shut down. Perhaps it's just the online portion of a game and we're still able to enjoy the singleplayer, but these days with a lot of online games and free-to-play offerings servers shutting down means you'll never get to experience that game ever again. It's all to do with cost, of course. Popular games that earn their creators a lot of money will likely sustain themselves for years and years, and most likely you'll grow tired before the servers shut. But every now and then there's that game that for some reason didn't take off, but that you quite enjoy.

Both of their plans were botched so they were forced to work together to escape. It isn't until later in life that they are awarded their own name. Another interesting option available to choose from for this race is tattoos and scars. The extra figures should make this highly appealing for fans. Inger loves stories and loves to write. This guide also gives you really nice walkthroughs of all the levels and quests and shows you where they will take you depending on the paths you decide to take with your character. They could also sport a human-like pale skin sometimes. or backfire completely. It provides extra cups, plates, and everything else you need. Safe and guaranteed.

Andromeda is the fourth entry in the Mass Effect series, but kicks off a brand-new story. In BioWare's new third-person role-playing game (RPG), play as the main protagonist Ryder, a human adventurer who travels through an age of advanced technology. Players find themselves on a quest to help humanity thrive in a new galaxy. The game is massive with a lot of activities, remarkably minimal of which is enjoyable. It's bland at the start and tedious to play at times. Soon after the character's father sacrifices himself, the character is thrown early into the role of Pathfinder. As the Pathfinder, the player is responsible for making planets suitable for colonization, initiating the first contact with new aliens, investigating the remnants of an advanced ancient civilization, and preventing the Kett from destroying everything.

The most likely location of the next elder scrolls in my opinion (my three favorite candidates are 1. Black Marsh 2. Summerset Isles 3. Hammerfell, would be overjoyed if any of these turned out to be the next setting)

After some digging around the steam store, I have found some retro/strategy titles with a heavy discount. Most of the games listed on here have 70% off the original price... the offers are of course limited so make sure you check them out quick! Do make sure you have your Steam Wallet Credit ready to go too!
Ever since Disney acquired the rights to the Star Wars universe, fans from all over the world rejoiced. Not only did this mean that we get to see a continuation of the beloved saga, but also an even more expanded gaming world in the series. Games like Star Wars Battlefront have undergone reboots, and there's even a standalone Star Wars movie that's coming out this year. With this rekindling of the Star Wars fare, a slew of mobile games related to the universe have also come out. Here's our top 5 picks, in no particular order:
Steve Gayner and the Fullbright developer's masterpiece Gone Home, is a detailed, non-violent first-person interactive that encompasses a profound exploration based game. As the opening credits fade away, thunder and torrential rain overtake a dark summer's night. Katie Greenbriar arrives at her new home from her year long trip to Europe. With no one home, Katie snoops through her own home in order to piece together what happened while she was away.

So in a few minutes I'll be signing out of Gamereactor for the last time, as today marks my last heading up the UK as its Editor in Chief. After 5 years of hammering the place into shape, as well as launching and running the print magazine, it's time for me to try something new (real reason: I've got to make some headway with my video game backlog. I've still to play Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy VI, Metroid Prime... the list goes on).

It has been a good year so far in terms of games, and announcements. At E3 starting soon we will get a ton of new games most likely and those that have leaked or announced beforehand. I myself have some hopes to see a few games. This small list is for a few games that arent announced yet to be there, and most likely wont with a few exceptions that might or will show up in some form. I have tried to exclude anything confirmed already like Fallout 4 among others.
Heartbeats is a new puzzler from Danish Developer Kong Orange. It got quite a beating in the Danish branch article about mobile games from Gamereactor Denmark EiC, Lee West. He called it "an artsyfartsy mess" that had an array of unintuitive puzzles and did not recommend it. None the less Heartbeats has been quite well received from fans and among other things it was featured in games of the month in Time Magazine and Best New Games in the US App Store.
Right now Im sitting here infront of the computer and listening to the ol' legend Bob Marley. I´m pretty sure that most of you guys (And girls) know who he´s, but for you that has been living under a cave for some years Bob Marley is a rasta-god.

So it happened. I just preordered a PlayStation 4. On September 9th I'll pick up my Destiny Bundle with that gorgeous white PS4. I guess my prediction of waiting till 2015 was a bit too much. I have used the ability to play at work quite a bit, and that includes platinuming Infamous: Second Son. But playing at the office is not enough anymore. I want to play at home and I want my own PS4. And I already have a backlog of games.

Although Microsoft has changed a lot of things about Xbox One console compared to the initial announcement, the price of the console will remain the same, and at the company does not care because it is more expensive than the other gaming consoles from the competition.

You know them. Or maybe not. But you surely hate them: false friends. I'm not talking about people who claim to be your friends but try to stab you in the back. I'm talking about some foreign words that sound incredibly similar to other words in your local language, but have a different meaning.

Superheroes have always fascinated me. Spider Man, The Wolverine and Captain America (or Captain Capitalism as I've grown to know him), fight threats towards humanity and, perhaps more importantly, protects the less fortunate. However, as the heroes go to fight criminality, they become criminals themselves, vigilantes that illegally bring justice down on the morally disgusting. In real life geeks that have read one comic book too much have tried to dress up as superheroes to fight crime. However, as the real life heroes don't have any superpowers, their tales often ends tragically, sometimes in death or incarceration, even before they've even begun. Even though it obviously is impossible for someone to become a superhero, arguably being a super hero might prove to be possible after all, just with the power of your ethics and awesomeness. Robin Hood is the prime example of a real life vigilante that did a remarkably fine job of it too.
If any of you guys visits Gamereactor.se, you might've noticed that I tend to publish boxarts once in a while. So I thought I should be able to contribute to the english Gamereactor, and post a blog with all my boxarts at the same time. I'll also update the blog when I've made new covers.

You probably don't recognize my name, and I don't blame you for it. I write for the Norwegian incarnation of Gamereactor, and although I've been around for a few years now I've never stopped by here on the international Gamereactor site. Which is a bit of a shame considering I currently live in England, so you'd think I'd make my way here more often.

During the past several days there has been practically nothing but a lot of StarCraft 2 gaming on my screen. World of Warcraft have had to step down a bit in favor of hours of Battlenet play with my friends. When StarCraft was released some 12 years ago I was actually a pretty decent player. So decent in fact that I was ranked third in the world at the ladder during one week (you know, when there was one big ladder instead of thousands like now), but of course that wouldn't be for so long as competition quickly grew.
Yes, as you can see im telling you to su... no, that was rude, im asking, begging you to subscribe to my new youtube channel, its a gaming channel ofcourse. With (soon to come) commentary of games like; Battlefield Bad Company 2(and the first one maby) Call of Duty (4) Modern warfare (2), Trails HD (my own tracks) and more as we get more requests and such.
Music might be the most important piece of culture through history. No other media has the power to engage or influence people like music do. It empowers our greatest moments, it comforts us when we cry over lost love, it helps us channel anger and it just makes us want to move our body to its rhythm. Music is in us, even as our surrounding is completely quiet. I think music works best when it is used as a mean to enhance an emotion. This is of course the whole purpose of music: To enhance/emote a feeling. That is why we make music and that is why we listen to it.

Dexter. Dexter. Dexter. Who thought of this Dexter? Is he a boyfriend, a lover, a mother's dream? Or is he a monster? A callous monster who just want to do one thing all the time, and it is to kill? Who is Dexter?
So, I picked up this game today and I played it for a bit. Over all the graphics are pretty amazing! The producers but a large bit of thought and innovation into this game they could have just let you point and click to throw the lasso and just let a shoot out be simple, but they didnt the game is pretty amazing!
