Ppresenting Live Stream Thursday: Episode Two, the Livecast Review of Etherium, a futuristic Real-Time Strategy title, very well crafted and methodically developed by Tindalos Interactive and Published by Focus Home Interactive. As an old school fan of classic RTS, coming from the Brood Wars Era, this title brings back nostalgia, excites with new complex mechanics and brave gameplay theory. Does it pull it off?

Quite frankly, yes, it does. It pulls off the genre very well, steps on a few toes with its parallel similarities, but these similarities very quickly help you overcome the overwhelming fear of “what do I do next” or “how does this work” by giving you that sense of “this is home, this is where I started” and encourages you to explore different strategies to become victorious and become the supreme ruler of the galaxy with Conquest Mode.

Here is the LST Episode that was Livecast on September 17 at 8PM

I really hope you enjoy it. Please note that at around 55 minutes into the video, there are video frames that drop until about 58 minutes and then randomly happen again… A big thank you to our ISP.

I really enjoyed the solo missions and the conquest principle, however it would have been a lot more fun to try out the multiplayer feature. I might recommend that Tindalos Interactive consider setting up a dedicated server that hosts random games for players. I would recommend making the purchase either before or after Legacy of the Void hits your pc, but not during the release of the new stand-alone expansion to the Star Craft universe. Long live RTS!

Catch us next week for another group review, where we review Bloodsport.TV, with Leon, Gert and Michie! (Popcorn and laughter tissues are recommended!)

I pretty much started gaming on Famicom! For those who didnt survive the flood on the ark with Noah, this was an 1980's 8-bit console using interchangeable cartridges. (Google it, it will blow your mind!). From there things got a bit more hardcore, and I started playing DOS-Based games, (Again...google is your friend.) and that progressed through Windows 3.1, until the present where I enjoy intense graphics, captivating story-lines, alternate endings and mind-numbing grinds on both PS3 and Windows PC. When I'm not gaming, I am a club DJ that enjoys playing House, Progressive, Trance, Tech and Minimal. I love watching Anime, my favorite shows are Naruto and Bleach. Epic, I know.
