Cryptic Studios has just announced that it's highly acclaimed MMORPG Star Trek Online will be free-to-play before the end of this year. The game will also be downloadable and playable at no cost!

"Transitioning to a free-to-play model is a natural way to share all we've built with a broader community of players and we couldn't be more excited." So later this year we will see STO go free-to-play, with features that include customizing avatars, crews and ships just like normal and no limitations to the galaxy they wish to explore.

Valve's Steam Trading Feature Goes Live
by Corey Dockendorf [ Wednesday, 7th of September 2011 - 02:23 PM ]
Almost a month ago, Valve's Steam Service launched an open beta trading feature which allowed players to trade Gifts/in-game items among other Steam members. Well that service has officially gone live, and you are now free to trade your TF2 hats to all your Steam friends! That was a quick beta test! Steam members can now trade items from Spiral Knights, and Team Fortress 2 as well as gifts purchased (but unopened). Although these are the only games supported for item trading, Valve has said that "Portal 2 should be reasonably soon and we hope to have several third-party games in the next few months.

Borderlands 2 Game Play Footage
by Matt Waitt [ Tuesday, 6th of September 2011 - 12:14 PM ]
So I was surfing around YouTube and came across this amazing fourteen minute long sneak peak of Borderlands 2. Just watching the first five minutes I was blown away by the unprecedented amount of changes to the game; Completely revamped menu system that is all in-world and amazing improvements of enemy AI, they actually climb walls and jump over gaps to get to you. The character animations are impressive as well. Watching Psychos flail their arms, dodge bullets and leap at you is jaw dropping. Read More...

WarCorner: Blizzard Announces Vanity Pet Murkablo
by Corey Dockendorf [ Friday, 26th of August 2011 - 01:43 PM ]
Blizzcon is less than two months away and Blizzard has just announced that players who attend Blizzcon '11 on October 21st and 22nd at the Anaheim convention or those that pay $40 for the Pay Per View virtual ticket, will get the highly anticipated vanity pet Murkablo. It's like having a little Diablo in your Warcraft. Although this is not the first Diablo vanity pet found in World of Warcraft, as Mini-Tyrael was the pet given out at Blizzard's Worldwide Invitational back in 2008, it's still very exciting. We saw some brief video of this little fire breather back in June when a few data mining sites pulled him from the "depths of hell" and gave us a short preview. Read More...

Want To See What Was Shown For Star Trek At E3?
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 23rd of August 2011 - 06:59 PM ]
So back in June we got to look at Star Trek from Paramount and Digital Extremes. It was overly impressive but it was also something that was behind some extremely closed door. In fact what we saw is still not out for the public yet to its full extent. This is sad for all those Trekkies out there and hardcore Sci-Fi gamers out there. Well here is the good news for you. Below is a short clip showcasing all the awards that Star Trek received even though it was so closely guarded. Read More...

Borderlands 2 Is Getting Chilly Too
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 18th of August 2011 - 02:31 PM ]
Living in Vegas it is rare that we get to see snow. I'm talking real heavy snow. I personally hate the stuff but I do love the temperature that comes along side with snow. I do enjoy going outside on a nice brisk day where I can still wear short sleeves and not freeze my balls off. Much like the poster boy for Borderlands 2 as you will see below. Like how I brought that around? From Gamescom, 2K and Gearbox have given us some more to look at for the game. Read More...

Batman Getting The Cold Shoulder In Arkham City
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 16th of August 2011 - 09:17 AM ]
Here we go with yet another villain shown for Batman: Arkham City - Mr. Freeze. If you look below, you'll see the nice, shiny new trailer for this latest reveal. At first glance, it really just seems like another step to stop Bats from getting things under control. That is, until he begins to meander around like a smaller, frozen Big Daddy. It does look like Freeze will be adding a few new environmental challenges for Batman from the video. Most notably would have to be the freezing of ledges. Read More...

Dead Island Shows How Team Work Is Golden During Zompocalypse
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 9th of August 2011 - 05:56 PM ]
When choosing one's zombie team, you generally want to have a good group whom you know will watch your back and not hesitate to kill a zombie. There is no room for cry baby whiners who will end up killing you and the group down the line. It is just good tactics for survival. It would seem very amateurish if you didn't know that rule when it comes to surviving the zombie plague be it urban or not. So what is the big news here as it clearly isn't just a lesson on surviving Zompocalypse? Well Dead Island has officially gone gold so we can expect it to keep the September 6th launch date.

Borderlands 2 Announced And Playable
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 4th of August 2011 - 01:30 PM ]
As has come to be the case lately, Borderlands 2 has been announced using Game Informer. The case I'm talking about is that 2K Games sent out no official press release and just used the magazine to spread the word. So everyone out there who doesn't have a subscription and/or doesn't want to pick up the magazine is SOL. You could also be like myself and still have yet to receive your copy in the mail. Either way it leaves us all searching the web for any kind of details. Read More...

QuakeCon '11 Incoming
by Corey Dockendorf [ Wednesday, 3rd of August 2011 - 12:19 PM ]
Let's start with "What is QuakeCon?", or as it has been known since 1996, the Woodstock of PC/LAN gaming. Hands down, one of the largest LAN parties of our generation. A celebration of all things Quake-oriented and bringing LAN gamers together onto one giant network. A gaming marathon that one will never forget from August 4th to 7th. Although, with so many gamers in a single location, and hosted by some of the biggest names in the business, (id Software, Bethesda, Insomniac, and Respawn) were bound to get some great news out of this event. Also a very interesting note, this event is 100% FREE to players! Read More...

Dead Island Is Making Curb-Stomping A Good Thing
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 2nd of August 2011 - 04:50 PM ]
It should be well known by now that each of the four playable characters in Dead Island has a finishing move for the undead when they are brought to their knees. The undead, not the character. Most of these moves include a stomp to the head or some other way of putting the final nail in the coffin for the undead. The below screen shots should be a good example of what I am talking about if you are still in the dark. Now for my extra two cents. Read More...
