5 Million Likes

Throne Rush is playable on multiple different formats. Android/iTunes & Facebook. This game has achieved 5 million likes on Facebook and for the event gave away free Dragons, the highest mob you can create in the game.

“Beat your enemies and gain glory in the most epic game ever! - The lands of Adergran are torn apart by endless sanguinary battles. Unnumbered impostors are claiming their rights for the crown – but who is really destined to be the king?

The future of your people depends on you. Put up strong walls around your city and lead your army to battle against your declared enemies. Will your name be immortalized in the chronicles of this world?

Throne Rush is an epic real-time strategy where a fantasy world is waiting for its hero and you can be the one!”

Rarity Faire

Weekly the Rarity Faire come to town and you have to collect Runes to trade for the Artifact of the week. These artifacts provide a permanent bonus to your village/buildings or even warriors. Current artifacts I have provide -10% less resources are stolen from you or +5% damage dealt by Warriors of Chaos

Players are collected into Brotherhoods (instead of Guilds or Alliances). These Brotherhoods have a maximum of 20. When I joined the game I the game I tried to join a Brotherhood (it says you can apply to multiple and then be accepted by one) but everyone I applied to was dormant or VERY inactive. Some of this is due to the game play-ability (I’m not on constantly, only when I need to do something). Some of it is do to the size restrictions, it doesn’t allow for new leadership in the Brotherhood, if members wished to stay together after a leader left they would be forced to create a new one entirely.

Free UnitsThrone Rush App Page on Facebook gives out multiple daily Free Units

Personally, I enjoy playing Throne Rush. In the beginning it was very busy, lots of building to construct and then upgrade. Once you get to my lvl (approx 35) it starts to slow down. Upgrades take days and your army takes 1.5 hours to recreate and Heroes have to heal. If you think you want to come try it out, search for the UberCrue Brotherhood and apply. I will accept you in. Currently the Brotherhood is mostly full, 16/20.

I almost forgot. There are 2 styles of game play and I have completely focused on the PVP side. There is also a PVE side (the World Map) which has 45-50 battles that you can complete as well, these do provide strategy practice and exposure to defenses you might not have seen elsewhere. After you complete the World Map you get a Decoration you can build and if you kill each one 100% you get a special 2nd build.

The Verdict

7Good

The Good: Throne Rush is a real-time strategy game.
It doesn’t require that you are constantly online.
It allows for Brotherhoods.
You get to build different armies and try different attack strategies.
Politics is VERY low in the Brotherhood structure.

The Bad: Brotherhoods don’t allow for long term leadership and presence.
It’s a Facebook game (Hello-o).
Lots of inactive players in the universe.
No centralized forum provided by the developers.

Steam, Indie Gala, Origin, Indie Game Bundles are all hosting games previously retail but free for a limited time. 4 of these games are Steam activated, the last one, Wing Commander III is hosted on Origin.

sairaminiFirst directly on Steam we have Saira & Protogalaxy both ‘platformers’ and by all appearances should probably be on a mobile phone rather than a PC but hey! They’re free!

…Get Saira on Steam here…

…Get Protogalaxy on Steam here…

frozenminiNext is Frozen Hearth, that looks like a isometric (top-down) action RPG (diablo-esque?). Anyways, who cares right? It’s free and Steam activated.

…Get Frozen Hearth from The Indie Gala here…

eastminiaThen there is East India Company. A very well made strategy game both multiplayer and single player. Based on merchant trading in the golden age of pirates and sea dogs. Aaarrgh! Get your free Steam activated copy below!

…Get East India Trading Company from Indie Game Bundles here…

wingminiAnd finally, Wing Commander III, although a timeless classic, this game should have been free like 10 years ago. lol. Leave it to EA to finally give away something that’s more or less worthless other than for nastalgia purposes. lol. Oh, there will for sure be people who argue that but come on, look at the in game screen shots. This game could have been played on an Atarii 2600.

Of course you have to have EA’s Origin already installed to download and run this game thereby making it even less worth free but hey! It’s sort of free, lol.

pimped copy2Sorry for the down time recently due to [UC] HQ relocation, server relocation and re-setup of our Minecraft server. We are currently working on a 2 set server with one 4 slot server and one 10 slot server. For more info on our servers, go here…

[UC] Minecraft Server Wiki

We apologize in advance for the Wiki missing quite a bit of the current stuff and updates. This will soon be rectified and you are more than welcome to pitch in (it’s a wiki after all, lol) to help us get it up to speed.

Also with any luck, we won’t be relocating any time soon. So now we can dedicate a lot of our efforts into updating and upgrading our clan and the community at large with better servers, more content, more activities and just more in general.

Speaking of more…

Here are a bunch of pimped out [UC] desktop wallpapers for your desktop or phone. All wallpapers are HD 1360×768. Just right click any image and click ‘save as’.

slsmlminiYes, yes. We know. Most of you don’t care to much for this game but some of us think it’s the coolest thing since sliced bread. So suck it up!

What do you get with a premium membership?

Well, 1st and foremost you get a free penis and/or vagina attachment! J/K! You’ll have to pay for those but Linden Labs is trying very hard to entice you with some really cool freemium stuff. Like airships! Very similar to Air Bucaneers or Guns of Icarus.airmini

Also you get a free apartment/town home/land area with about 117 prims to play around with (plenty of room for a stripper pole and a Gorean slave girl).

Not to mention the main reason, access to premium sandboxes. Most of us whom play SL, do so for the creativity part and there is nothing more frustrating than trying to build something in a public sandbox, only to be griefed by some 12 year old kid who lives in his mom’s basement. Fortunately  that kid can’t afford a premium account, therefore he isn’t allowed in the premium sandboxes.

Plus expanded support via chat/voice & exclusive activities like Magellan’s Grid Hunt or Dune Buggy Racing in Racer’s Gulch.

With your ‘stipend’ (that’s the Linden money SL pays you every week) you actually aren’t paying anything at all, you’ll receive appx. 3600$L back over the course of your quarterly premium (that’s 3 months). 3600$L is equal to about 15$ USD. Which you can spend in game or cash out, back into $$$, get your 11$ back and then some!

This offer ends Aug. 4th, 2014. So if you’ve ever even remotely considered playing this game, now is the time to get in. Just follow the link below for your 50% off SL premium discount.

walkingminiA lot of comic collectors & readers go for the more classic styled comic with actual real paper and ink. Some of the more modern readers use a Kindle, tablet, pad or similar. Either way you will need some kind of .pdf or .cbz reader. This post will cover .pdf as it’s the most common ‘reader’.

The foxit reader is free and 100% effective. You can get your free copy here…

Now onto the FREE digital comic book starter!

The popular A&E horror survival drama, “The Walking Dead” is based off a comic book series by Robert Kirkman. So if you are a “The Walking Dead” series fan, then you should be at least vaguely interested in it’s namesake and inspiration.

SPOILER ALERT! If you’ve read any of these series in their comic book forms, then you’ll know the TV series follows the comic book fairly closely until about the 2nd season or so. Then things begin to go ‘TV’ and the comic book series takes a serious plot turn away from the TV version. Either way BOTH very good entertainment if you enjoy the genre.

Without further adieu, here is your link to the free first 3 comics in “The Walking Dead”. Just scroll down near the bottom, enter your e-mail and you’re good to go!

apbupdatesv2smlThe Gamers First developers working on APB have been steadfastly working their typing fingers to the bone, updating our favorite game! Probably the most ‘game changing’ of those is the switch from the old, useless punkbuster to the new Fairfight system used by games like Battlefield 4 & Titanfall. Not only is this Fairfight system better, it’s server side. So soon we can lose the invasive punkbuster (a.k.a. uninstall it) once the change to Fairfight is made permanent (it’s currently in beta testing).

So let us rejoice! Hacktard bitches can suck a nut. APB has also released a ‘wall of shame’ listing the last 200+ accounts terminated for hacking. Check this list out, lol, some of these fools spent 8000+ hours, hacking your GG. Now they get to kick rocks.

H4x0r wall of shame

*Sigh of relief* Ahh…to relish in their anguish. Such joy. :)

Other changes are soon to come and those being an engine upgrade. Which hopefully we will see some nice improvements there.

There is also a much more in-depth explanation of the latest updates (and upcoming ones) on the APB blog.

 

race07smlminiThe free games are a flying this year. It’s a really good time to be a PC gamer. :)

BundleStars in conjunction with PCGamer is giving away 2 retail racing games (12$ value) plus a free2play freebie thrown in for good measure (it comes as a side bonus to owning Race07).

If you are a racing enthusiast or aficionado, this particular racing game is an officially supported WTCC game (I guess that means something to some race people somewhere, so it must be important).

Anywho, you’re getting Race07, the GTR Evolution Expansion & RaceRoom Racing Experience.  By the looks of it, these are some well thought out and very nice looking racing games (although it appears to be ‘simulation’ oriented so be prepared for a learning curve).

Just follow this link and like on twitter (or if you’ve already done this, it will ask you to share the info on Facebook). Then get your key and activate it in Steam.

So buckle up race fans!

…GET YOUR RACE07 + GTR EVOLUTION EXPANSION KEY HERE…

sims2med smlIf you’re anything like most of us, we all have Steam, Uplay & Origin installed because the game developer ‘gods’ decided we can’t just use one content delivery system (a.k.a. Steam, lol) we have to use one designed for each and every major game company (i.e. EA & UbiSoft). So if you don’t have Origin, although frowned upon, we suggest you go ahead and make the jump to install the other 2 as there are bound to be upcoming deals (like free games) that you won’t be able to pass up.

…To install Origin go here…

…To install Uplay go here… (it’s the one that says PC)

Once this completely unnecessary task is done, you can play games supported by their prospective game developer.

Todays, limited time offer, is the Sims 2 – Ultimate Collection. This means you are getting the complete, retail game including ALL of the DLC, updates and add-ons for (you guessed it) FREE!

Of course you’ll have to register an account (assuming you don’t already have one) to Origin (and Uplay). Once this is done, log into your account. Go to the Origin tab (in the upper left hand corner) and select ‘REDEEM PRODUCT CODE’ then enter this code ‘I-LOVE-THE-SIMS’.

This promotion ends on 7/31/2014, so get yours quick!

More free games on there way soon, so keep checking back!

6 classic AAA games from Square Enix (normally 45$ retail) for only 1$!


ANACHRONOX DAIKATANAMINI HITMAN

MINININJAMINI  THIEFMINI  HITMAN2


Most of these games you’ve probably played but some of them you may not have and these certainly will look nice in your Steam Library. Not to mention, if you upgrade to the 15$ donation, you get a total of 15 games, among them games like Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Deus Ex: The Fall, Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days & Lara Croft: The Guardian of Light.

If you got a buck to spare, it’s totally worth it! All games are Steam Activated.

…Follow This Link To Humble Bundle…

As a bonus, for those of you with kiddies. :) We’ve got 2 totally kid friendly retail games for FREE!

This first one is Steam activated, all you have to do is vote YES! for it to go Greenlight.

…Gurumin: Monstrous Adventure Free Here…

Next one is only recommended if you already have Origin installed (or if you feel like going through the hassle of installing it). Origin is similar to Steam and you may already have it and not know it for games like Assassins Creed or Battlefield 3 & 4. If you do (or you think it’s worth installing to get a free game for your kid) just follow this link and it’s all yours!
