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…

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://‑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 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…
