Heroes and Generals is a brand new fast-paced and free-to-play FPS where you're in command. While HaG may be modeled after the widely popular war games around the net, it goes beyond simple tank or airborne battle. Spawn in and level up to earn new and more deadly weapons and equipment. Pilot a plethora of vehicles, from tanks, to planes, to the humble bicycle (really great for getting around). I've played a couple other browser-based war games and this one is by far one of my new favorites. It has a Battlefield 1942 feel without dishing out any serious cash or needing a hefty download.

It’s a sucky, sucky part of life on the internet nowadays. “Trolling” is the intentional misleading of another person or group of people by way of the internet in order to achieve a certain reaction from said individual(s). If you have grown up on the internet, your experience dealing with trolls may vary, and if you’re comfortable with how you compose yourself you might as well stop reading now. The purpose of this week’s Danger Blog will be to help you identify situations of trolling in hopes you can save face in the future.

Let me start off with a little disclaimer; this blog and all opinions expressed herein are heavily influenced by my experiences in gaming, and in no way reflect the reality of or generally accepted community opinions surrounding gaming.
Much like males of the species homo sapien, girls tend to act differently when socializing through the internet. This difference in behavior can be attributed to a number of things, primarily the relative anonymity one has when surfing the interwebs. People in general become bolder, more thoughtful (given increased response time), and are quicker to jump to conclusions when no immediate physical ramifications to their actions are in place as a deterrent.

So, there’s a lot of popular MMOs out right now, with more guaranteed in the near future. Destiny hit open beta recently, WildStar hit release two months ago, ArcheAge found relative success for more hardcore RPG enthusiasts, and World of Warcraft has slated its next expansion for December of this very year. For me, the most interesting aspect of the MMORPG discussion is that while these are all very highly quality titles, they each maintain their very own unique play style and “feel”.

Because Roman Numerals past ten just start looking like Super Bowls. This week I want to talk about something that’s been a part of my gaming career for a long time, and maybe yours too! It’s something that transcends gaming, and becomes a very part of your personality. It begins early on and lasts until you die. It’s a part of how you conduct yourself, and how others perceive you. I am talking about the human ego.
An ego breeds confidence, which in turn can breed arrogance, which I think most of you will agree is a bad thing.“But Alex, everyone has an ego of some kind, does that mean that everyone is bad?”, of course not. How you manage your ego and pride is all a part of growing up. Finding a balance between confidence and arrogance is all you, I’m not here to tell you how to do that.
Ego is important in gaming because of how we game. The fact that people are more prone to being jerks online has been attributed to the relative anonymity they have. It’s easier to be bolder when there’s no potential physical ramifications to our actions. I believe the ego is a primary initiator for most negative online behavior. “That guy got so lucky” or “this dude must be hacking” are both examples of someone’s aversion to self-blame. By blaming your failure on someone else, you can protect yourself from the crushing insecurities we as humans hate so much.
Owning up to your mistakes is a huge part of growing up. Apologizing or admitting you were wrong is no easy task, especially for someone raised on the internet. What feels like a century ago I was playing arena in World of Warcraft at a somewhat high level. I was on a crappy Battlegroup and would float around Gladiator rating for an entire season. Because the Battlegroup was so cruddy, I got a ton of attention from people on my server. Being 18 at the time it all went to my head and I started down the excruciating path to dickishness.
Again, it’s hard to admit mistakes, and when we would start losing games I would always blame my teammates, again, avoiding responsibility. Eventually it got so bad that my tiny teen brain was forced to realize the reality of the situation, “they don’t suck… I suck!”. After this momentous event during my Sophomore year of college [and a heartwarming apology to my teammates, awwwh feels] my gaming arrogance began to crumble. After I realized I wasn't as great as I had once believed, playing games with friends was a lot more enjoyable. The pressure to perform was suddenly gone.
If you struggle with your ego, I honestly hope it doesn't take some grand event to wake you up to reality, because damn it can be embarrassing. Being confident is great, but be humble about it, people will respect you a lot more than if you engage in post-game badmouthing. Use discretion and you’ll be untouchable, no matter what community you’re a part of.

Competitive eSports is changing the way our world works in a number of ways. This week I want to provide my perspective on the rapidly developing and ultra competitive international phenomena that is eSports. ESports is defined as ‘electronic sports” and is currently changing the way a lot of the world defines professional competition. Since early years, we are taught that it is healthy to move our bodies and participate in “play” of some kind. Playing games with others our own age teaches several invaluable social skills while reestablishing the thought that with a healthy body comes a healthy mind. I don’t disagree with any of this, and I would be the first to advocate the value of regular exercise and play in the life of any young person or child, but as technology begins redefines the meaning of “play” for our generation, a wider perspective is required.

Life would be much easier if you could run ahead and check things out in advance. If you could scale that hill and see what’s on the other side before deciding it’s worth the climb. Some people are gifted with relative foresight, but expecting unadulterated clarity is unrealistic. Ultimately, future-sight would hardly matter because among the very few true absolutes in life, the march of time stops for nothing and what will be, will be. Whoa, that was a bit cryptic, but let’s try to relate it to today’s topic. It’s been a couple months since my last Danger Blog, but it’s time to get back after such an exciting period of downtime. Between events like E3, and the daily duties of someone in my position at Gamepedia, I am exposed to new games every single day, almost none of them being big-name AAA titles. I am, of course, talking about the Indie crowd; independent developers and studios who are constantly innovating for our pleasure on boring Sunday afternoons.
