Hyperiums Review

Cost: Free with a yearly sub option of $17.00 USD/year

Modes: Two, Permanent and RLF (Real Life Friendly)

Style: Test based MMORTS (Mass Multiplayer Online Real Time Strategy)

Final Score: 4 out of 5

Overview

Hyperiums is a space based real time strategy game. This is a game designed around the social aspect of online RTS gaming. Although some will find mild success with playing solo, or pirating as it’s referred to in the game, the majority of players will belong to an alliance.

This game can be played at home or from work as there are no ads in the game and is text based with very light game created graphics so there should be nothing that should be stopped by traditional work filters

The Facts (on a 5 star scale)

Graphics – 3

The simple fact is this is a text based game with virtually 0 graphics. There are some space fleet graphics that cycle through in the back ground and the planets icons are simple but clean. The font is easy enough to read as a yellowish font on a dark background. Nothing is fuzzy or hard to see. The only thing keeping this from getting a higher rating is the complete lack of any real graphics.

Replay Value – 4

I have been playing this game for six years now. This game is NEVER the same from day to day. You can be part of an alliance, you can commit treason and sell your alliance’s planet list (if you have access), you can try to be a peaceful trader, you will fight in wars for territory, and the list goes on… The only thing that keeps this from getting a 5 is if you are a warmonger then you at some point you will become bored with the game.

Community – 5+

If I could give this a 6 I would. The Hyperiums community is like none other that I have been part of. They support and develop tools for the game and keep them updated and are CONSTANTLY making some kind of improvements. Even the author of the site will chime in from time to time and help the devs with things. Please do not misunderstand; there is also a fair amount of whining, complaining, and flaming done on the msg boards but its all in good fun and part of the game.

Its worth mentioning here that if you are not an avid mIRC user then you are going to want to be to play this game.

Mechanics – 4

The learning curve on this game is hard to explain (which is why it gets a 4 and not a 5). Its somewhat difficult to master the game (not anywhere near as hard as say E.V.E) but if you get in with a good alliance you should be fine. This game is a RTS game that is based on “time ticks” certain events that happen every day at the same time (based on server time of course). Once you learn these the game becomes much simpler.

The goal of the creator of this game is to create a permanent game that never has to be reset. Having said that in the time that I have been playing we have had 2 major resets (not bad for 6+ years)

Feel- 4

The overall game play and feel of this game works well together, there is not really anything about this game that makes it feel out of place or awkward. Its a fun place to play a game when you have 5min or 2hrs to kill. As the game progresses it does take up more of your time. Once you get far enough in the game it’s easy to spend 3-5hrs a day on this game and sometimes more. This is for the permanent game; if you cannot commit this much time there is a RLF (Real Life Friendly) version of the game that moves at a much slower pace with the “time ticks” spread out more. Some people play both!!

Personal Impressions

As stated above I have been playing this game for sixish years so yes I like it a lot. We have just had a hard reset on the game so it’s a good time to get in a learn as even the vets of the game are having to figure out a few things again!! I am not naive, this game is not for everyone; however, if you like politics, war and strategy this is game is worth trying out.

My only request is that if you do try it out. Stick around for at least 30 days to get a good feel for it! If nothing else its a good game to play from work when your boss is not looking!!

Getting started

1. Start out in a protected super cluster

2. Look for an alliance to join right away

Secret Gold Guide Review – Hayden Hawke

Hayden Hawke’s Secret Gold Guide is one of the new gold guides on the market for World of Warcraft. It claims to be able to make you over 600 gold an hour using strategies contained within the guide. I did some research into this guide to determine a few things:

  1. Is this legitimate?
  2. Do these methods work?
  3. Is it worth the money?
  4. What do you really get?

I’ve come up with some answers to these questions to share in case you’re considering using this product.

Is this legitimate (Not a Scam)?

After purchasing the guide and sending emails to support I’ve determined the guide is legitimate. You will receive an automated email with login instructions to access a PDF file that you will be able to download. You also do get access to a ticket system and they do respond to you if you ask questions. The checkout system is secured by clickbank.com.

Do these methods work?

This one is a little bit more tricky. The guide covers just about everything, from the auction house, to farming, to instance running, to professions, and more. There’s definitely a lot of information in this guide. I was able to get some of the things to work that I was familiar with, other things that I’m not so good with I just ignored. I did make gold, I didn’t make 600 gold an hour on average using all the methods I chose, some were higher and some were lower, but that could be because I just haven’t practiced enough.

You will be able to apply methods from this guide to make gold is what I’ve concluded.

Is it worth the money?

For someone like me who’s been playing World of Warcraft for 5 years, there wasn’t a whole lot of new stuff in there that I didn’t know about. I picked up a few things, but for the price, I don’t think I’d buy it again. If you’re just starting out or not familiar with making gold, it might be worth it to you, but for me I don’t think so.

What do you really get?

What you get is a guide that contains a lot of basic gold making strategies on everything in the game. If there’s a way to make gold, it’s covered at least on a basic level. There are a few sections that go into some advanced details and gold making strategies, but not much.

The benefit to this guide is all of the strategies were up to date and relevant, I’ve had problems with other guides not being updated.

Downloading Genuine Games From Genuine Sites

Gaming has been for a long time a very addictive and interesting way in which you can have fun and relax. It is an important part of all cultures and most countries enjoy their own set of games. Gaming enhances the physical and mental capabilities since they challenge us in many ways. You need to use your brain and imagination when you are making moves.

Games also help us to a great extent when it comes to social bonding. Games have evolved a lot as time passes by. Gaming started with the very basic dice games and today, there are the very popular video games that almost everyone, including children, is now accustomed to. There are all sorts of games including arcade games, song games, and action games among other categories. You can get such games in app stores or in CDs. They can also be downloaded effectively from authorized sites.

Choosing a good site

There are many factors that need to be considered when you are looking for a site where you can download the most popular games or even upgrade the ones that you already have. There are many sites that you can choose from. Some of the things you can do to ensure that you end up using the best include:

Reviews

You look at online reviews from people who have already used the site successfully. Fellow game enthusiasts will definitely know about the best sites that have the best games selection. Look for forums and dependable reviews. Usually, the best sites have great platforms that are easy to use and they are genuine.

Variety

A good site should have a wide selection of games. Regardless of the mode, you love the most, there should be other options available. There should be multiplayer and single-player modes. There should also be different kinds of game plays such as arcade and so on. This is the only way you will be able to access something different when you really want to. When you have the option of participating in multiplayer games, you can break the monotony and engage with the online community.

Video streaming

A site that allows you to stream your games in the form of videos, episodes, tutorials, and demos gives you an advantage. The different categories that you can use include Sci-fi, action, horror, drama, comedy, and anime.

Social networking

When you are able to connect with other players socially, you get the chance to meet so many new people from all over the world. You can then form your own clans and start chatting as you continue with the game. This is always a great addition.

Availability

A good site should be in a position to offer the game modes that can suit different operating systems such as Mac, Linux, and Windows. This allows the players the chance to play their game regardless of the time or place.

Creation and sharing

A good site should allow you to create your games. It should also allow you to do some game modeling as well as animation, photo editing, sound production, game development and other fun activities. It should also allow you to offer gives and trade some items with others as well.

WorldWinner Review – Is WorldWinner Legit?

WorldWinner is the number one site on the internet for playing skilled games, both for free and for cash. It is important to note that all of the cash games available at WorldWinner are skill games and are not considered to be games of luck. As a result, there are no legal problems regarding gambling on WorldWinner.com. As a direct result of this, one is able to conveniently deposit PayPal money into their WorldWinner account and is able to withdraw their money via papal as well.

There are currently strategy, board, card, arcade, and trivia games available for play at WorldWinner. If you strategize correctly, there is money to be made here. I suggest that you try to master one WorldWinner game and then continue to do play that game for money consistently.

For example, you should spend one week playing 100 games of 8 ball pool on practice mode. It costs no money to set up an account and it costs no money to play practice games for free. If you feel comfortable with your 8 ball pool (or whatever game you chose) skills, then it is time to deposit real money into your account.

Let’s say you deposit $20 into your WorldWinner account when you start playing whatever game you have decide to master by spending several hours – days playing on practice mode. The average person you will be playing will be a non-serious player who is on WorldWinner to have some fun. The player is there to play games, and to have more fun the player decides to put a few dollars on each game. However, skill wise he is nowhere close to your level of play.
