World of Tanks Southeast Asian Servers Open

Pop quiz! Which of the following appeals to you the most?

    1. Parking behind giant rocks or inside bushes
    2. Noisy diesel engines
    3. Running over clotheslines
    4. Driving in a circle around a pile of boxes

Obviously, all of these answers are valid. A much more valid answer would be E. All of the above. If none of these appeal to you, you probably haven't experienced the joy of Wargaming.net's World of Tanks yet. If you live in Southeast Asia, you're in luck; it's now easier than ever to get into my absolute personal favorite free-to-play game. World of Tanks has just opened its Southeast Asian servers!

Visit the World of Tanks Southeast Asia site to get started. The servers are currently in open beta to test load capacity and patching and other technical things. Wargaming.net was kind enough to list down the following perks for players who participate in the open beta:

    • Register and reserve your in game name!
    • All XP and achievements earned in open beta will be transferred to official launch servers (subject to change)
    • Daily gold bonus for all players during open beta

Sounds good enough to me. Let's go!

Heroes & Generals

I've seen this game on forum threads and r/gaming several days ago. I guess I need to let everyone know this new game, It's Heroes & Generals, a Free2Play MMOFPS World War 2 game that is currently being developed by Reto-Moto. [youtube_sc url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RKkv9Ebvkx0"]

There are two parts of the game, the action game and the campaign. The action game is where you play the game as a hero meaning it's all FPS. Meanwhilem in the campaign, a general can control assault teams where he can assign missions to conquer cities, airfields, factories and other important strategic points in order to get supplies. Every kill in the action game is reflected in the campaign.

The Heroes will be the deciding factor on who will win the war. The Heroes will look to their Generals to send them the needed reinforcements and supplies that they need to win those important strategic battles.

I'm still surprised by this game since I haven't played any WW2 FPS game for years and this game is pretty big. To know more about the game, watch the following videos or check the FAQ.

Warning! These videos are from the current alpha.

Who wants to ride a bike? I'm sure a lot of you guys really like this kind of game. It's like Risk + Battlefield 1942. You may get the alpha keys (if you're lucky) by enlisting here. I really really really really hope that they will provide a server here in Asia.
