Uncharted 3: The Review
As many of you already know I’m an avid PC gamer and there are very few games outside of the PC system that I enjoy. Uncharted is one of those franchises, one that I thoroughly enjoy and when I heard that Uncharted 3 was coming to the PS3 I was very excited. As with all sequels today I’m always wary of a sellout, underdeveloped or otherwise incomplete release. I’m happy to say that the Uncharted franchise hasn’t and still does not suffer from any of these calamities. Out of all three I’d have to say this one is my favorite. Generally games don’t hold my interest for more then a few hours before I set them down and pick up something but Uncharted 3 as with it’s predecessors held my interest from start to finish and I even foundRead 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…

Counter Strike : Global Offensive… It’s Finally Coming.
Valve has just announced the upcoming 2012 release of a new Counter-Strike title for PC and Next Gen consoles, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. It’s bee n 12 long years since counter strike took the world gaming industry by storm. Starting off as a simple Half-Life mod, Counter-Strike became one of the most widley recognized FPS titles in the industry and is still widely played 12 years after it’s release. Here is the offical statement from Valve: “Next Gen Console, PC, and Mac Release Targeted for Early 2012 Valve, creators of best-selling game franchises (such as Counter-Strike, Half-Life, Left 4 Dead, Portal, and Team Fortress) and leading technologies (such as Steam and Source), today announced Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO).

Angry Gamers Appeal to Blizzard… Pure Rage
httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DDYjljdje‑g&feature=player_embedded Blizzards recent annoucement that Diablo III would be online only has generated a lot of rage in the PC gaming community. For example, the man above, has some choice words for Blizzard about their recent business decision to make Diable III online only. While I and the videos author are on the same page for Blizzards decision and I might even consider sending them a letter to appeal their decsion. However, I don’t think the author of this video will accomplish that. It doesn’t really give the professional vibe that one might want in a business letter.

Blizzard Responds to Communities “Online Only” Complaints
Blizzards recent announcement that their newest release would be following the “Online Only” model has genearted a large number of complaints. Blizzard recently took the time to address those comments. Here is what they had to say: “We thought about this quite a bit,” said executive producer Rob Pardo earlier this week. “One of the things that we felt was really import was that if you did play offline, if we allowed for that experience, you’d start a character, you’d get him all the way to level 20 or level 30 or level 40 or what have you, and then at that point you might decide to want to venture onto Battle.net. But you’d have to start a character from scratch, because there’d be no way for us to guarantee no cheats were involved, if we let you play onRead more…

Dead Island — Left 4 Dead 2 on Steroids
Today while I browsing the Internet for new and upcoming games I ran across this game which appears like it is going to give Left 4 Dead a run for it’s money. If going by the trailer, which was probably one of the most heart breaking trailers I have ever seen, is any indicator on how the game is going to be… it will be amazing. Zombie Games appear to be coming out of the wood work lately ever since the ever popular Left 4 Dead series hit the market. The Left 4 Dead series is by far the most popular zombie apocalypse franchise followed by Dead Rising. This is the first ‘zombie’ title I’ve seen in some time to actually look like it might be worth the money it costs. I’ve gone ahead and collected some videos and photos Dead Island.Read more…
