They will also be able to team up with friends and fight their way through the campaign, or test their skills in the magickal arts through other challenging modes.
Men's Health Think big. Most adults would benefit from eating more than the recommended daily intake of 56 grams, says Donald Layman, Ph.D., a professor emeritus of nutrition at the University of Illinois. The benefit goes beyond muscles, he says: Protein dulls hunger and can help prevent obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. Super Smash Bros. (Wii U/3DS) Gameplay Two versions of the game will be released, one for Nintendo 3DS and the other for Wii U. The Wii U version is presented in high-definition visuals, while the Nintendo 3DS version will feature characters with black outlines, which can be toggled on and off. Both versions will include the same roster of playable characters, but the two versions will each feature exclusive stages, assist trophies, and collectables.

Frozen Synapse A really original simultaneous turn-based tactics, set in a cyberworld of a distant future.Even if usually I'm not too much into this kind of games, I really enjoyed it for its simple yet complex mechanics. The rules are really basic, but since the whole game is about predicting opponent's moves, and you can never, never know for sure what another human being is thinking, and that's why it shines in multiplayer more than anything else, even though it has a lenghty and worthy campaign.Multiplayer is really versatile too, since you can just leave your turn and play another match (or even another game altogether) while you wait your opponent's; you can even set the game to send you an email when a new turn is awaiting you.Also, is worth nothing that replay of your matches are automatically saved on the servers, and you can watch even other's really easily; and there's an amazing little option that uploads your matches to your YouTube channel.
ZB Tiling Tut A wall with uniform bricks running along horizontal rows is a common asset that is easy to create. Creating nonuniform rough stones that stray away from the horizontal course, such as rubble masonry, is a more challenging matter. The amount of noodling required to make the rubble masonry wrap and tile seamlessly is enough to drive most artists mad. Within Zbrush's vast array of tool options lies a way to create such a wall quickly and painlessly. We will sculpt a rubble masonry wall as one single tool in Zbrush, departing from the often used method of sculpting individual stones and assembling them into a wall in Maya, Max, XSI, or on your Zbrush canvas. Taking advantage of Zbrush's masking options will make this process fun and painfree.
Sid Meier's Pirates! It's the best pirate game I've ever played. It's also one of the very few pirate games I've ever played, so I dunno if my review will count for much. Surprisingly addicting open-world pirate game where you can go out and do random stuff, like rescue your family from this villain, go treasure hunting, attack other ships and/or settlements, acquire goods from one port and selling it at another port (trading), and even wooing (and eventually marrying) a random daughter of a govenor. There's fun mini games (although lots of people hate the dancing one) and you basically play until you grow too old to continue pirating.

Article: Game Art Art Concerning Deus Ex: it often seems to use both a grand defining texture and a detail texture map, and it just looks especially funky on the screens. It's one of the few games that I've noticed utilising them, but that may be me. I suppose the game doesn't quite have the texture resolution to keep the effect from being a bit jarring, but it's still cool that you've got sharp texels even when standing right in front of something. Take a look at this screenshot, where it's obvious there are a seperate door and wood texture: Or the right side of this picture:
