Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Trailer Just as we all figured it would be, there is going to be a follow up to the hit Battlefield: Bad Company from EA and Dice. As you most likely also already figured, there are some new things to show off here for Battlefield: Bad Company 2. In fact if you are still looking at my words here and not below, then you are behind in the viewing pleasure. Both starter screens and video below. Which means you most likely skipped down already.

Save the Date

VGXPO Tickets On Sale Now Who doesn't like to save a buck given the state of the economy right now? Am I right? It has been dwindling a lot of gamers resources to make it to huge gaming events or conventions just in general. CES wasn't as big as it usually is, and I'm sure that this will kind of be the case all conventions over. But that isn't what I am going to drawl on about here. No. Read More...

Be The Overlad!
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 18th of March 2009 - 01:12 PM ]
FIRST OVERLORD™II GAMEPLAY VIDEO Evil is as Evil does, or something like that. With Codemasters' new Overlord game coming this Summer, it looks like they are going to give us all the chance to put that age old adage to the test. At least it looks that way from the new Game Developers vlog that Codemasters just placed out there, with some fun looking screen shots from the game. All of which are below. They are quick to point out that they don't think that the first game allowed for you to be as evil as many wanted to be in the game, so they added a new system to the game to make that available.

Talk About Being Effed Out
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Monday, 16th of March 2009 - 06:46 PM ]
HOUSE OF THE DEAD: OVERKILL BREAKS [AN EFFIN'] RECORD FOR THE GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS GAMER'S EDITION Now this is a feat if I say so myself. Not the getting into the Guinness World Records book, especially since there is the Gamer's Edition. That would make it kind of moot to say that a game made it in. But in this instance, it isn't just making it in, it is the reason behind getting listed in the book. It is an effing awesome reason too. Read More...

Valve Spanks "Bad" Servers
by Brian Bentley [ Saturday, 14th of March 2009 - 10:12 PM ]
Announced in the Team Fortress 2 blog, Valve has begun a process that will be de-listing servers they deem as "bad."  Using number of connections and player time on the server as the main factors in judgment, they calculated a score for each server and those servers in a certain block (my guess is a percentage), were removed from the master server listing system.  Password-protected and low-use (less than 200 connections) servers were excluded from the search and destroy mission.Once again Valve is making owning one of their software titles a treat and a vacation from released garbage put on shelves only to remove $50 or $60 from your pocket.

"There's Something In The Sea"
by Sam [ Friday, 6th of March 2009 - 07:02 PM ]
Take-Two has just released a teaser website for Bioshock 2: Sea or Dreams and are going around town putting up weird posters on the streets to advertise the website, which can be found here.Picture provided by Kotaku reader Dominique:Though the site is new, there isn't much too see on there. You can see a picture of the big daddy doll that was shown in the first teaser trailer of the game, a picture of an "average mens shoe" on the beach and local newspaper articles such as one from February 20th, 1967 titled "LOCAL GIRL VANISHES IN MYSTERIOUS ATTACK" which should give some kind of hint about what to expect in the upcoming game.Still more updates to come. Hopefully we'll get an insight of what to expect in the game or maybe some actual gameplay soon. Read More...

Titans Join the Tournament
by Jesse [ Friday, 6th of March 2009 - 05:13 PM ]
            A little over a year ago, Midway and Epic Games released the highly anticipated Unreal Tournament III. The game, which was awesome to begin with, was made even better by the release of a free map pack. Now, even with the financial problems Midway is suffering from, another free downloadable pack is coming to the PC and PS3 versions of the game. The really exciting thing is just in the huge amount of content that’s available. Firstly there are 11 new maps spread out across Warfare, Deathmatch, CTF (Capture the Flag), and Vehicle CTF to compete on. Read More...

Hey! Wanna Play?
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 3rd of March 2009 - 12:47 PM ]
Screen Shots of Dexter The Game Yes the title sounds like more news on the Saw game that may or may not have been canceled, but it is not. It's about Dexter The Game. Yes a game based on the Showtime show about a serial killer of killers. Let your mind wrap around that for a second. Got it? Good. Even though they might not look all that graphically impressive or even look to be a killer game, pun intended, one thing to keep in mind, this is an iPhone app game. So these visuals are from "cell phone." But some cool things to keep in mind about this is that the developers are trying to keep some of the tech in mind. Read More...

Posse Up!

Spore Galactic Adventures Now that we have all had a chance to play Spore and get our little single-celled organisms up to the point where they can leave their home planet and fly around the universe, what is next to do? I mean you could go through it all again making yet another set of creatures that look very phallic in nature. You could go through all that hassle, but wouldn't you rather take you creatures and do something with them? You know you want to. Read More...
