We have been pretty lax with the content lately, but fear no more, 2015 will be the year of NerdSynq #Yanerdme. I am here to share with you the 2015 promo of the RadioShow, a few clips to wet your whistle to see how we are behind those microphones.  If you haven’t checked the show out you can find it on both iTunes and Podomatic–but here are the links and the video for your viewing pleasure!

NERDSYNQAnd here is the video we have all been waiting for at NERDSYNQ:

What’s up ladies and gentleman! 2014 is coming to a close and we are hoping that 2015 really turns everything around. We have great writers coming on board, and more than enough content to post for your viewing pleasure–but we forgot to mention that we have a new show. These very very important things that slip our minds. For that we apologize for not trafficking it through the appropriate channels, but we hope you enjoy it nonetheless.

Marvel Heroes

Fuck World of Warcraft, screw Diablo 3, who cares about Skyrim. Marvel Heroes is here. If you are a fan of Marvel or comic books in general, Marvel Heroes is the way to go.

For those of you that have not purchased any of the starter, premium, or the ultimate pack, you won’t be able to log into game servers just yet. You have to wait until Tuesday.

Marvel Heroes is a Diablo style game with the characters being Marvel based. You get a starter character which you get a choice between Daredevil, Hawkeye, Scarlet Witch, Storm, and Thing. No matter who you start off with, you are going to have a good time. You can also collect other characters within the game by getting them as random drops off of bosses. Within the game there are short little cut scenes that show up when you progress to the next stage of the game. You see Wolverine, Storm, Captain America, Luke Cage, and Spider-Man. These characters not based off of Marvel: Now as far as I know, since Spider-Man’s comments in the cut scenes are quick come-backs and jokes about the situation.

The game-play graphics are fantastic. Lots of area of effect graphic elements and other character graphic elements. I hope you have a good graphics card and some RAM, cuz my computer shut down twice because I had my settings running too high. Even so, obviously with the beta there was going to be collision issues, but so far in the live version, I have not seen anything go wrong. Boss fights are for the most part simple, you figure them out pretty quickly, and if you know how the character is in the comic books, you have a head start on how they might act in the game.

The story within the game is very well written. From what I have experienced so far, there are 2 main hubs for characters. You start off in Avengers Tower trying to get a piece of a tablet from more of Avengers based bad guys.You get to battle the likes of the Hand, Hydra, A.I.M, Green Goblin, Elektra, and Kingpin just to name a few.Then the game moves you over to the Xavier School and you go on to fight the Purifiers, Reavers, and Juggernaut. In the end, the big boss fight will be against Dr Victor Von Doom.

The way the instances work makes me very happy. I don’t think it’s the same as Diablo 3, since I have not played it in a while. When you enter an instance, you are automatically group with up to 4 other people. You do not have to go and try to find people to join a group. And the difficulty of the instance changes depending on how many people are in the group. But any area is solo-able. But when you get grouped up, the rewards at the end are more plentiful.

As far as end game goes, from what I hear there is one set up. I know there is an end game PvP arena as well as daily challenges to complete for rewards. And there are guilds that are being formed in anticipation of said end game content. But guilds are not live yet. There is also a crafting section with Hank Pym where you can add abilities to your costume as well as upgrade rare quality items into epic items.

Probably the best thing about the game is that you do not need a lot of time to play. You can come and go as you please. No matter what, you should at least give Marvel Heroes a shot. I mean, come on, it is a free game!

Game Rating: 9.1 / 10

Marvel Heroes, a free to play game, has released their launch date. The game will go live to everyone June 4, 2013. “But isn’t there a way to get early access?” you ask. Why yes there is. You many decide to pick up on of the many Starter Packs that contain 1 hero with 2 different costumes. You could go for the more expensive Premium Pack that contains 4 heroes with 2 costumes each (personally I got the Deadpool only pack, duh). Or you can get the $200 Ultimate Pack that grants you every character in the game, every costume, permanent 5% bonus xp and item find boost, and a few extra characters and costumes that no one can see.

 

The Starter Pack gets you a 2 day head start on the competition. Premium Pack gets 4 days. And the Ultimate Pack gets a 7 day jump on the game. Not sure how many people are purchasing the Ultimate Pack, but it might be a little difficult to defeat some of the world bosses with a minimum number of people.

 

For those that have not heard, Marvel Heroes is a Diablo style game with many game play aspects the same as Diablo. The games story was written by Brian Michael Bendis, who has written for many different Marvel titles such as Ultimate Spider-Man, New Avengers, Averengers vs X-Men and many more.

 

Today at PAX this trailer was released on the Marvel Heroes villains that are going to be throughout the game.

 

 

Those that already have purchased or are going to purchase a Premium Pack or above will have Closed Beta Access from now until the game launches. Don’t forget to check out Marvel Heroes when it launches June 4, 2013!
