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.

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…
