Lord Of The Rings Online To Go Free-To-Play
by Brian Bentley [ Friday, 4th of June 2010 - 05:10 PM ]
Today Turbine and Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment announced that in the fall their popular MMO, Lord of the Rings Online, will be introducing a free-to-play model. Turbine will be implementing a three-tier system (VIP, Premium and Free) that will put limitations on the non-subscribing members. Free members will still be able to access all four races, most of the player classes and all three starting zones. Other limitations do apply, such as number of characters per server, inventory bags and a money cap. Read More...

Review: Lost Planet II
by Kevin [ Tuesday, 1st of June 2010 - 12:59 PM ]
When you start comparing Lost Planet II to its predecessor it seems like it should escape all of the pitfalls of the first title and really offer up a solid single player experience with a rich multiplayer to boot. Aside from technical issues, some slightly questionable AI and level design, it delivers. However, a word of advice: Don't bother playing the game by yourself. LP2 just doesn't seem designed for it.

Chris Hunting Hunters In Marvel Vs Capcom 3
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 27th of May 2010 - 05:21 PM ]
Ok, well not really, but think about the below shot of Chris Vs. The Hulk. Shot gun blast to the face of a big green hulking monster. Just like the first Resident Evil. Maybe that is how they are going to link a few of the stories for the game. That could also be a stretch though. But it could be easy to see happening. What other stories can we come up with from all the below Hi-Res screen shots from Capcom's next major fighter? Let's see. Read More...

Two Worlds II Trailer Debuts
by Corey Dockendorf [ Thursday, 27th of May 2010 - 12:55 PM ]
TopWare Interactive has just debuted it's latest trailer for Two Worlds II. The sequel to Two Worlds, which at release was labeled as the "clone" of the Oblivion series. Two Worlds was off to a rocky start and very buggy in the beginning. Not to mention the community had very little patience for an epic adventure of this proportion to be that buggy out of the box. Through it all TopWare moved forward and continued working on Two Worlds II to bring the players back to the world of Antaloor. Enhanced AI, balancing standards, experienced authors, an active combat system, theinnovative DEMONS™ magic management, and the PAPAK™ alchemy system guarantee enjoyment for new and experienced gamers.

How Tough Are The Streets In APB
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 27th of May 2010 - 10:55 AM ]
From the look of things, they are extremely tough - even after the elected officials legalize vigilantism. That is music to our ears for what we are being promised for EA and Realtime Worlds' MMO APB. We want them to be rough and gruff. It is a action MMO version of Cops and Robbers after all. If you want to see for yourself how rough the streets are going to be, watch the trailer/opening cinematic for yourself. You'll get to see how no one really cares about graffiti in this town. Not to mention, you'll see a bit more of some in game action. Read More...

The Sights Of Gears Of War 3
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 25th of May 2010 - 04:38 PM ]
For a game that is still just slightly under a year out, by the gods it is looking good. But that was to be expected for Gears Of War 3 was it not? I mean it is using a very powerful gaming engine to run it. It just comes down to the artist and compression teams to make it run and look good on the XBox now. Which I am sure there will be no problem at that at all. Below you will see some renders of the characters of Gears Of War 3. Read More...

The Beauty Of Final Fantasy XIV
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 25th of May 2010 - 09:51 AM ]
Now I was not a big fan of Final Fantasy XI. Maybe it was the grind. Maybe it was the lack of people that I like to play with. Maybe it was the lower end graphics for the game. At least lower end to my high standards. Yes I am a graphics prima donna now. I have been spoiled by the "next gen" consoles and higher end PC graphics for too long. Well at least now due to online socializing and the below new screen captures of Final Fantasy XIV, it looks like two of the above three issues I had will be taken care of. At least if these are in game shots, most likely, and not pre-rendered from an intro clip or cut scene type clips. Read More...

Review: Iron Man 2
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Sunday, 23rd of May 2010 - 03:14 PM ]
So you've read the comics. You've seen the film, most likely. You hopefully listened to the developer's call. Now you might be wondering if you should go through with playing Iron Man 2 the video game. Well let me tell you my thoughts to hopefully make up your mind on what you should do, or at least make a small impact on which way you sway. Before we get into the nitty gritty, I do want to warn that this game is based on the film. But only based as in it is in the same world as the film's events and also uses two of the cast for voice overs. Read More...

What Is Singularity's Deadlock?
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Friday, 21st of May 2010 - 02:02 PM ]
In case you were wondering the same thing the title is, let us answer that for you. It is the name of the time manipulation tool you get to use in the game. Well, that was an easy explanation. I guess I'll leave ya there. Or not. Below there is a better look at one of the functions of the device; A function that lets you place people or things into a "time bubble" to either kill or slow down. It also looks like you can make a form of slow-field as well to make dodging enemy fire that much easier. Kind of a nice little function to have in a FPS. Read More...

LittleBigPlanet In BulletStorm?
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 20th of May 2010 - 05:47 PM ]
Well BulletStorm was fully announced last week with a few nice shots and a video showing it of; Not to mention all the press of Cliff Bleszinski going crazy over all media outlets about it. He likes to talk and let people know what he thinks doesn't he? But I'm side tracking now. His socializing online isn't what is going on here. What is going on here though is that we have scrounged up some new screen shots from EA for BulletStorm. Well at least mostly new. Read More...

Let's See That CoD Black Ops Uncut
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 20th of May 2010 - 12:23 PM ]
The first amendment is one of the few things that we Americans love to hide behind when we are not being cattle and following the "in" crowd. When we truly speak our minds and in turn get ridiculed or condemned for what we say; All because it is against the majority. But that doesn't make it any less a right we have been empowered with so we can say what we want without much worry. You know who we have to thank for that, our great military men and women who go out under orders and slaughter those who would slap our hands with rulers for saying "poopie." So in honor of those men and women, I give you the First Amendment version of the Call of Duty: Black Ops trailer. Read More...

Dead Space Lets You Kill Babies Like Dante
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 18th of May 2010 - 04:59 PM ]
Visceral Games just likes killing babies. Or at least that is how it seems from their games. First you get to slaughter the unbaptized ones in Dante's Inferno. Now, for the screens below, it looks like you get to kill "infected" babies in Dead Space 2. Infected and with Cthulhu growing out their back babies. Ok, well those ones need killing I guess... What also needs killing is the person who took these screen captures as well. Read More...

EA's Showcase Showdown From London
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 18th of May 2010 - 11:38 AM ]
Who likes seeing new stuff about their favorite franchises? Who likes hearing about updates to their favorite games? Who wants to see some of the big heads of the big EA games coming out or out already telling you what we have to look forward to in the coming year, all before the big push at E3 in a month? That's right you do. If you don't, then you better want to. Read More...

Dream Another Dream Naughty Bear
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Friday, 14th of May 2010 - 06:08 PM ]
I swear to the gods that Naughty Bear, like Micheal Bay, love to use things from our pasts and childhoods. Fortunately, unlike Micheal Bay, destroying them is not the case in these "Nightmare" videos. Aliens and The Blair Witch Project already got the "Nightmare" redition done by Naughty Bear, so you must be wondering what is next? Well if you really don't want to see the fun, I'll give you a hint. It's not Event Horizon. Read More...
