PS3 Player Can Portal Into PCs For Free
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 20th of January 2011 - 12:46 PM ]
Well here's an interesting little tidbit of news. Any gamer that purchases Portal 2 on the PlayStation 3 will get FREE access to play the game from their Steam client. Think like a digital copy that comes with most BluRay films nowadays. Oh, but wait, there is more. Not only do you get a "free" copy of the game for PC, and technically Mac, but the two systems will be able to communicate with each other to allow for co-op play between the PS3 and PC/Mac. By communicate I am not only talking for play, but you will be able to actually chat with the other player and I'm not talking by screaming really loud. In game chat for those who still didn't get it. Read More...

Review: LittleBigPlanet 2
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 18th of January 2011 - 05:22 PM ]
Sackboy is back and he is bringing a team of new characters, features and mini-games for the PS3's answer to Nintendo's Mario. Well Super Mario Bros. if you were then allowed to mod the game and pass out your mod to a huge network of players online. If you have not yet heard of LittleBigPlanet or LittleBigPlanet 2 you have been living a very sheltered life. All for no reason as well since the game appeals to a lot more than just you average gamer. Let me break it all down for you in LittleBigPlanet's coined terms for the game. Read More...

Lara Croft Is A Dirty Little Minx In The New Tomb Raider
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 18th of January 2011 - 11:41 AM ]
Ok, so I might have to eat my previous words about the reboot for Tomb Raider. I may have been a bit quick to judge but in my defense that was back before anything real or tangible had been seen. I mean all we had was a rather unimpressive description of the story. Well now we have a good look at the new vision that Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix are taking the game. I will have to say I am extremely impressed with what we have here. I mean with the Left/Right Trigger prompt being on the screen I think it is safe to assume that we are looking at game play shots here too. Read More...

Story Time With The Helghast Of Killzone 3
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Monday, 17th of January 2011 - 02:02 PM ]
So here is further proof that an FPS can have a good story mixed in without the need for multi-player being the selling point. I mean let's face it, Killzone is not the franchise that all you multi-player freaks hop right out to go play. Don't you even try to deny it or swear that you do. You know just as well as I that is not true. That being the case obviously there has to be another great pull to the franchise to help sell millions of copies. It for sure isn't going to be the Move capabilities. Read More...

Bulletstorm To Blow Out Your Ass
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Sunday, 16th of January 2011 - 12:53 PM ]
If there is one person in the industry that I think is a little full of himself it is Cliff Bleszinski. He has been a huge influence and factor in some of the largest FPS titles out there. I get that. I respect him for that for the most part as well. I just wish he'd get over himself and the online "fame" he claims to have or that those fan boy/girls give him. Just because he is vocal doesn't make the man any more important. But now I am off the topic of why I even brought up "Cliffy B. Read More...

We Got To See A Hydra Use A Portal At CES
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Friday, 14th of January 2011 - 06:24 PM ]
At last year's CES we were introduced to a product called Sixense. It was a motion controller being made by one of the smaller companies Razor had under its wing. Sixense was a really cool device with A LOT of potential, but nothing seems to have happened over the last year. Well at least nothing all too public. While wandering the booths of CES the AggroGamer team happened upon the new design and updated controller in the wild. Something we almost missed out on as it has been give then new name of Hydra and an extremely different design. Read More...

DC Universe Online Taking On All New Heroes
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 13th of January 2011 - 01:26 PM ]
So the beta for DCUO came and went. We were lucky enough to be part of that whole experience. Well now the full version of DC Universe Online is ready for you to pick up or download depending on your preferred platform to play. To celebrate that fact, as is usual, there is a new trailer to show off for the game and to help promote it. There is nothing all that new in the clip as it mostly comprises of a mashing together of already seen footage. At least it is something to give to those who have not heard or seen anything for the game up until now. Read More...

Mortal Kombat Has A Night Out With Mileena
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 12th of January 2011 - 06:25 PM ]
What would you do if you were forced to have a night out with Mileena from Mortal Kombat? What would the minds that put her together in the game want to do? Well we get answers to that and a few extras in the below video we have to bring you. Those extras by the way are some fun new game play with Mileena. Now while I personally wouldn't want to spend a night with Mileena, I do find some of the responses a bit funny. Like take her to a buffet and watch her go to town or the Thunder From Down Under responses. Read More...

Sony Now Has An App For That
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 12th of January 2011 - 02:25 PM ]
SCEE has finally let loose the app they announced back in December that will allow PlayStation fans to do pretty much what XBox fans have been doing for a long while now. That is access all their stats, news and talk about all things on their chosen console. Man that took a while to get out there. I totally can't wait to use it to keep up on my friends and trophies. Oh wait… I can't… It is only for people with European accounts. Anyone can download the app to their iPhone/iPod or Android phones right now, although work arounds are needed if you live outside of Europe. Read More...

A Date With Capcom At CES
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 12th of January 2011 - 12:20 PM ]
CES is generally not known for the game developers rocking out their new products and IPs. That is what E3 is for and we all know that. Capcom likes to break the mold and show up in force every year just to spread a bit more of the word on all of their upcoming titles. In this case, the titles were Marvel vs. Capcom 3, MotoGP 10/11, Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 and Okamiden - all of which I was able to put hands on. Let the impressions begin! Read More...

Impressions: DC Universe Online
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Friday, 7th of January 2011 - 09:12 AM ]
So here we are a week out from the launch of DC Universe Online and considerable time has been spent tweaking and fixing bugs in the beta, both on PC and PS3. I had the chance to be a part of the beta, along with all of you PSPlus subscribers or those lucky to have swagged a code to get in. If you don't fall into either of those categories, let me fill you in on what you have been missing out on. The Story Just like any RPG, be it MMO or Table Top, there is an ultimate evil trying to destroy/control the universe. In this case, it is Brainiac and he is doing it in the form of stealing all of the powers of the heroes and villains of the DC Universe. Read More...

The Softer Side Of Bulletstorm
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 5th of January 2011 - 12:25 PM ]
With a FPS centered around awesome and mindless violence - mixed with some story somewhere - it is time to show a softer side of this seemingly ultraviolent game. What better way to do that than have the President of Epic Games in the shower sharing his inner thoughts about Bulletstorm. Sounds on par with what the game is all about. Right? Well not from the description I just gave. Read More...

Looks Like Castlevania To Be Resurrected By DLC
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Monday, 27th of December 2010 - 12:01 PM ]
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow came and went. It was a great addition to the franchise in my opinion but the replay on the game is almost nonexistent. Once you beat the main game and then clean up the challenges and Paladin play-through there really is not much more to do with the game. It just sits on the shelf collecting dust like all of tomes in the Vampire's castle. To make sure this isn't going to happen too long, it would seem that Konami is dishing out some DLC to give you more reason to head back. Read More...

Watch Uncharted 3 Burn Up The Screen
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 22nd of December 2010 - 12:14 PM ]
So just recently on Jimmy Fallon Live, there was a showcasing of Uncharted 3's game play. Probably like most of you, I don't watch that late night show, so I missed out on it. Well, at least I'll say I missed out on the game play - not so much the retardababy banter I am sure commenced. What oh what to do? I guess we will simply have to rely on Naughty Dog to give us said game play to digest and enjoy. Rely we shall. Read More...
