Holiday Must Haves

So Christ­mas is just around the cor­ner and a lot of great games are hit­ting the shelves to cash in on the shop­ping fren­zy. So I put togeth­er a list of games that are a MUST! These games are what make gam­ing great and fun. They are the games that will be on every­one’s let­ters to San­ta. I give you the Hol­i­day Must Haves: #10 Dead Island So Hal­loween is over but zom­bies are fun all year long. First per­son shoot­er mixed with RPG ele­ments makes for a lot of game­play. Also four char­ac­ters to choose from and co-op modes allow for dif­fer­ent playthroughs mak­ing Dead Island a good mix of fun and blood. #9 Gears of War 3 Gears of War helped launch Xbox in the ear­ly days and now the 3rd install­ment keeps us going. Great sto­ry andRead more…

The Ultimate Gaming FPS simulator or the 1st Holodeck!

This ulti­mate gamF­PS sim­u­la­tor was built by the crew at “The Gad­get Show” a tech show from Eng­land on Chan­nel 5. Armed with the E3 demo of Bat­tle­field 3 and about $650,000 they have made the clos­est thing to a holodeck I’ve ever seen! Using ambi­ent light­ing, a hacked Kinect con­troller, a floor that lets you sim­u­late walk­ing with­out mov­ing, some remote con­tolled paint­ball guns, and a 360 degree full room screen these guys have built some­thing insan­ly cool!   So, if you got that kin­da scratch lying around watch the video to learn how to build your own!   Source: Engad­get

Battlefield 3 Beta: Console vs PC

With the recent release of Bat­tle­field 3 Beta I’ve noticed there has been a sig­nif­i­cant amount of com­mo­tion amongst the com­mu­ni­ty, espe­cial­ly the con­sole play­ers about why the graph­ics don’t look as good as they did in the video.  I’ve also heard numer­ous com­plaints about the PC ver­sion hav­ing mul­ti­ple maps for the beta and being able to host more play­ers.  Let me start off by say­ing that Bat­tle­field 3 was devel­oped with PC gamers in mind.  The game was devel­oped for the PC first and con­soles sec­ond and it shows with­in the game.  It’s designed to push the lim­its of graph­ics tech­nol­o­gy and even my video card is start­ing to show signs of stress with every­thing maxed to the top.  I sus­pect the retail release will be even more pun­ish­ing then the beta.   I took the time yes­ter­day toRead more…

Video Awesomeness: Battlefield Edition

  To kick off the open Beta for the high­ly antic­i­pat­ed release (BY ME!) of Bat­tle­field 3, I thought it would be cool to vis­it the Lin­eage that the Bat­tle­field series has brought to the gam­ing com­mu­ni­ty from PC to con­sole this is a strate­gic think­ing man’s shoot­er! So instead of me ram­bling on about the past here’s Adam Sessler (one of the only good things G4 TV has to offer). He basi­cal­ly sums up the series through Bat­tle­field 1943 in three min­utes: PC Games — E3 2012 — Bat­tle­field 3 When Bat­tle­field: Bad Com­pa­ny came along I total­ly got into the series (sor­ry PC guys Dice mussed up not putting this one out for you!) The sto­ry was a mod­ern day ver­sion of Kelly’s Heroes, one of my favorite World War II movies from back in the day, which addedRead more…

Battlefield 3 Beta Starts Today and Costs How Much?

  By now every­one knows that the beta for the upcom­ing release Bat­tle­filed 3 is now avail­able for every­one to play on PC, Xbox and PS3.  I decid­ed to first down­load it on my Xbox and went to the dash­board to down­load it when I run into the pic­ture above.  I was mild­ly shocked when I was told it was going to cost me 429,496,795 Xbox 360 points.  That comes to a grand total, at $19.99 for 1600 points of $5,360,025.58 dol­lars.  I don’t know, that seems a bit pricey, espe­cial­ly for a beta.  But you know, we are in a reces­sion, got­ta do what it takes to make ends meet.  We all know EA is hurt­ing for mon­ey these days.   In all seri­ous­ness it will not cost any­thing to play the beta but you will have to pay for the full game.  The beta release will fea­ture fea­ture 2 mapsRead more…

Battlefield 3 Alpha Test

  So the closed alpha test­ing for Bat­tle­field 3 went live yes­ter­day and I got a chance to play some. Its only test­ing for PC so all the con­sole guys out there will have to wait till beta test­ing. The alpha con­sists of one mul­ti­play­er rush map called Oper­ta­tion Metro. As usu­al rush mode, you take turns attack­ing or defend­ing two points. As you cap­ture points your team moves for­ward or you must fall back if your defend­ing. To those famil­iar with the series the game­play feels very much the same. You unlock weapons, attach­ments, and oth­er bonus­es as you lev­el each class. The class­es are Recon, Assu­alt, Engi­neer, and Sup­port. You don’t get access to all the class good­ies but there are plen­ty to choose from for an alpha. All that  is typ­i­cal Bat­tle­field. The alpha plays in a sort ofRead more…
