Game Reviews, Gaming Facts Why Is Dota 2 The Biggest Game On Steam? By Michael Cohen on September 11th, 2013 at 5:00 pm. This is the first part in a new series looking at contemporary multiplayer gaming and the e-sports phenomenon. Since Steam’s inception, just a handful of marvellous gems have topped the Steam Stats page. Games like Counter-Strike, Team Fortress 2 and Sid Meier’s Civilization V have earned accolades, snared players in their thousands, and then hovered around the 50,000 mark. More users play Dota 2 simultaneously than the nine other ranked games combined and it is only going up from there. In essence, ARTS stands for Arena Real-Time Strategy game, which is a brief description of the elements of this offshoot of the strategy genre. Though the concept is simple, the amount of knowledge about the game, the mechanics, each heroes’ capabilities, limitations, exceptions, and strengths can be overwhelming. It’s almost as if you were at home with your friend watching him or her play! New people are getting interested all the time.

soft How A Single Patch Can Shake The Dota 2 Trading Market By Cassandra Khaw on November 19th, 2013 at 7:00 pm. “Do you want a scoop?” “Yes.” That didn’t seem sufficient. An emoticon — X and D get a lot of mileage from me — gets stapled on. Jing is my primary contact in the sometimes seedy world of Dota 2 trading. We start with the pleasantries. Exclusivity is a big, big thing for the Dota 2 trading scene, so big that even silliness like a cowboy outfit for a razor-clawed bear can skyrocket in value due to discontinuation. But even the gilded, vicarious glory of the immortal[1] Golden Baby Roshans pales in comparison to ‘Legacy’[2] couriers. Previously, effect and colour were immutable attributes, chiselled onto couriers like Chihuahuas onto Paris Hilton’s fashion sense. “That $38,000 courier is probably worth less than $4000 now,” Derby, a seasoned Dota 2 trader, remarks flippantly. While the vast majority of players seemed enthused about the curve ball Valve threw, a small division of traders took to their pitchforks. (Source: Dota 2 wiki)

Interactive Games Shop Merchants & Marauders : A Game Review | Starlit Citadel March 3rd, 2011 Posted in reviews Merchants & Marauders is the latest in a small line of pirate games. There just aren’t that many to pick from – Jamaica, Blackbeard and Pirate’s Cove are the only serious pirate games that come to mind. Of the group, Merchants & Marauders stands out for it’s high replay value and overall fun gameplay. Appearance: Merchants & Marauders is made by ZMan Games and it comes with some great components. A ton of miniature ships, lots of cards, multiple player boards and one huge game board depicting the Carribean Island’s all come in high quality detail. Rules / Ease of Learning: Merchants & Marauders has quite a heavy rulebook; with multiple areas to cover – from actions in a turn to three forms of combat (Merchant Raids, NPC/Player Ship combat & Boarding Combat). To summarise the game, each turn a new event card is drawn. Gameplay: Merchants & Marauders is a solid game, with a lot to offer gamers. Related Posts:

Legends of Pegasus Review: Merchants & Marauders Quinns: Rum! Guns! Thievery and corruption! Oh wait! In our last episode we said we thought Fortune & Glory was a poor example of Ameritrash, Ameritrash being board games that, generally, focus on conflict, cheap thrills and on smothering your table with components rather than being a fair and nuanced game. There’s room for two to four players here, and you all control independent ship captains. The twist (and imagine a dolphin bursting from the sea to twist languidly in the air, winking at you as you catch its little dolphin eye) is that the players are given complete freedom. You can methodically bank your gold in your big cardboard treasure chest, scrimping and saving your way to victory, or you can keep it in your pocket. This stretch of islands is nothing less than a playground. At the start of the game the board’s empty. Then event cards will start filling the board up with other ships. Die, and the only thing you keep is your glory score. Here? I was wrong to be grumpy.

Home » iPhone, iPad & Smartphone Games | FISHLABS Merchants & Marauders part 2 rules and gameplay Welcome back to the second part of this review where I will talk about the rules and how it plays. Merchants & Marauders have a striking similarity with the PC game Pirates of the Caribbean (which had nothing to do with the movies). You have RPG light elements with your captain stats and special cards that can be played, you buy new ships and upgrade them and you travel between the ports of the Caribbean to buy goods and sell them where the demand is high. Or you resort to pirate activities plundering ports, merchants and fellow players alike. Starting the game every player gets a random captain card, 10 gold, 1 glory card and one of two small ship types. The function of the first player is to be the person drawing Event cards. Player captains have a card showing 1 special ability, and 4 stats. roll when asked to perform a influence check or scout for an enemy ship. So, embarking on your adventure, you start in your port and are given several choices already. fire cannons.
