MW3 DLC coming March 20

The DLC is being released as a col­lec­tion of mul­ti-play­er maps and spec ops mis­sions and will be avail­able on March 20th for X360. That that play on PS3 and PC will have to wait until the DLC even­tu­al­ly makes it way down the pipeline to them, I would guess about a month. It will include the maps Lib­er­a­tion, Piaz­za, Over­watch, and Black Box, as well as Spe­cial Ops mis­sions Black Ice and Nego­tia­tor. This con­tent was actu­al­ly devel­oped by three dif­fer­ent devs, Infin­i­ty Ward, Raven Soft­ware and Sledge­ham­mer Games, this should make for an inter­est­ing mix of style and game play. Along with the com­ing DLC, con­tent will also be avail­able for COD: Elite sub­scribers on the March 13.

Gaming in Stereo: Classics Continued Wednesday

[display_podcast] Yes, yes I know; two Halo songs in one week, this is an out­rage! But I want­ed to take the rest of the week to ded­i­cate the arti­cle to clas­sic video game tunes, ones that every­one should know no mat­ter how “Hard­core” or “Casu­al” you are. Today’s is, I would say, the most mem­o­rable tune to come from the orig­i­nal Xbox. Halo Theme Mjol­nir Mix by Mar­tin o’Don­nell off of the Halo 2 Offi­cial Sound­track is as icon­ic as the mas­sive size of the Xbox and the “Duke” con­troller. So, sit back and enjoy the rock anthem that defined a con­sole and have a great Wednes­day. http://www.bungiestore.com/Halo-2-Vol.-1/A/B00067RF6E.htm

Developer of LIMBO looking into multi platform development, including mobile

LIMBO, cre­at­ed by devel­op­er Play­dead, may be com­ing to a mobile device near you. The devel­op­er has stat­ed that it is inves­ti­gat­ing new plat­forms for which to branch out in devel­op­ment. Whether this means a LIMBO port, new games to come or both we dont know, seems sil­ly though that LIMBO would be left out, its a sim­ple game but was well received and gained pop­u­lar­i­ty fast so if the devel­op­er breaks into the mobile devel­op­ment are­na I would expect to see an Andoid and iOS ver­sion. Should Play­dead get into more plat­form devel­op­ment I think we can expect to start see­ing some inter­est­ing things come down the pipeline. As small and sim­ple a game as LIMBO was its pro­duc­tion val­ues were high and it screamed qual­i­ty and tal­ent. To see more games with such unique­ness and build qual­i­ty would be noth­ing lessRead more…

Gaming in Stereo: Classic Tuesday

  [display_podcast]   Today we are going to do things very sim­ple and lis­ten to a clas­sic. A sim­ple tune from every gamer’s his­to­ry and one that came in a superb pack­age. The Ground Theme (From Super Mario Broth­ers) is one game theme that you can even catch casu­al gamers hum­ming from time to time. This song is from my per­son­al copy of the Super Mario All-Stars Lim­it­ed Edi­tion that was released for the Wii in late 2010. It was a good ded­i­ca­tion to cel­e­brate the 25th anniver­sary of the Mario fran­chise. Enjoy clas­sic Tues­day!     http://www.amazon.com/Super-Mario-All-Stars-Limited-Nintendo-Wii/dp/B0049DYNNO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1330409211&sr=8–1

Mass Effect 3 MMO is being talked about

Bioware founders have been think­ing about the pos­si­bil­i­ty of a Mass Effect MMO, some­thing I think we can all be excit­ed about should ideas meet devel­op­ment. Mass Effect is such a huge uni­verse that even the large in depth games dont real­ly begin to scratch the sur­face. Some­thing that has been acknowl­edged by the founders of Bioware. Dr. Greg Zeschuk stat­ed, “It’s daunt­ing, but the neat thing is it would lend itself to a dif­fer­ent type of game play. It’s fun to think about,”.….“I imag­ine peo­ple think it would be just like Mass Effect as it is… but there’s lots of peo­ple there. It’s real­ly inter­est­ing, I don’t know. It’s a tough one.” Dr. Ray Muzy­ka men­tioned a “pos­si­bil­i­ty space”, which is areas of the fran­chise that can and should be extend­ed. Muzy­ka had this to say. “When you deliv­er a game, and you deliv­erRead more…

Gaming in Stereo: Somber Halo Monday

[display_podcast] Today we take a look back at anoth­er Halo 3 song off the offi­cial sound­track. Say what you will about the Halo series, but Mar­tin O’Donnell and Michael Sal­va­tore have cre­at­ed an epic in the sound depart­ment. Today’s track is Nev­er For­get, a beau­ti­ful orches­tra and piano suite that echo’s the sor­row, the sac­ri­fice, the epic con­flict that spanned across the galaxy and beyond. I just can’t get enough of this sound­track and the series. In a world full of “mod­ern” set­ting shoot­ers, I real­ly miss the epic sci-fi con­flict. I hope you enjoy this calm and somber Mon­day. http://www.bungiestore.com/category/30116721781/1/Soundtracks.htm

Gaming in Stereo: Lost Planet Friday

[display_podcast] Lost Plan­et came out ear­ly in the 360’s life span and is still one of my favorite games of this cur­rent gen­er­a­tion. The game was clear­ly made by a Japan­ese devel­op­er for a west­ern audi­ence, there are foot­prints all over. Though despite this being a first attempt at cre­at­ing a game for the west­ern audi­ences, mas­ter mind Kei­ji Ina­fu­ne help cre­ate a game that had a great sin­gle play­er as well as a great inter­na­tion­al online com­mu­ni­ty. Lost Plan­et was one of the first games I played on Xbox Live and I made a lot of inter­na­tion­al friends due to the pop­u­lar­i­ty of the game across the pond. Today’s track comes from the collector’s edi­tion that I have and sad­ly is the only way to get the sound­track. The good news is they are on Ama­zon for twen­ty bucks,Read more…

Gaming in Stereo: Bottom Feeder Thursday

[display_podcast] This song was one of the rea­sons I start­ed this fea­ture arti­cle. I would lis­ten to this song in the show­er, in the car, on walks, and any­time in between. This is one of my favorite songs in gam­ing and off the Bas­tion: Offi­cial Sound­track. I can’t give Dar­ren Korb enough praise for the sound­track. This song comes late in the game but just has a puls­ing beat and a hint of Ara­bic tones; it’s just a won­der­ful mix. Today’s song is The Bot­tom Feed­ers; I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.   http://store.supergiantgames.com/collections/frontpage/products/official-bastion-soundtrack-digital-download
