Borderlands 2 Announced And Playable
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 4th of August 2011 - 05:30 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 - 04:19 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 - 08:50 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...

Diablo III Brings Real Currency Trading
by Corey Dockendorf [ Monday, 1st of August 2011 - 09:38 PM ]
Well here's some interesting Diablo III news. Players will be able to exchange in game items for real currency! The service will be hosted through an unannounced third party company. The Auction House will be very similar to an E-Bay style system but also completely optional. Players will be able to purchase gold, weapons, armor and runestones on their current accounts, but Blizzard says there will be no "Game play affecting" items available for this type of trade. At the time of this writing Blizzard has no plans to post items directly and will leave the item trading up to the players. Read More...

by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 27th of July 2011 - 05:35 PM ]
While it was not playable, at least to non-developers, Darksiders II came with the full force of Death at this year's SD Comic Con. Puns always intended here. What did we get to see for the game? We some of the new weapons, game play and a small bit of the story that we will get to play through come next year. Also, if you look below, some amazing art and visuals for the game. Let me break down what I saw and a bit of extra info about it. Read More...

WarCorner: Real ID Party Available For Testing
by Corey Dockendorf [ Friday, 15th of July 2011 - 04:30 PM ]
Blizzard a while back made mention that players would be able to group together (same faction) and be able to run through random dungeons together across servers. Crazy I know, but it is Blizzard. They have the technology and the man power to make such miracles happen. I got an e-mail today confirming just that. The Real ID Party system went into live testing today and players will be able to experience cross-realm game play with friends. How this works is players will be required to have the Real ID of their friends they want to play with and invite them into a group. Read More...

It's Time To Get Raptured...BioShock Style
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 14th of July 2011 - 10:57 PM ]
Hear ye! Hear ye! Rapture is upon us and it closer than most of you might think. It wasn't back in May. Nor is it in October this year. I am prognosticating that it will be here in a matter of days. In fact I am prognosticating that it will be here on July the nineteenth two thousand eleven (7/19/11). Then again it isn't much of foretelling of the future as that is the release date of the novel based around the BioShock universe is slated to hit selves. BioShock: Rapture is a book written by John Shirley. Read More...

Batman Really Taking On Jigsaw In Arkham City Now
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 13th of July 2011 - 10:30 PM ]
I do love the new direction that RockSteady has taken The Riddler, my second favorite villain, but I can't seem to look past the close similarities in the characters. They are both geniuses. They both like putting people in death traps. They both have a specific tone and method to their speaking. I guess the only real difference is that the new Riddler does it to prove to the world that he really is the smartest person alive. Anyways, if you haven't picked up on it yet, or skipped to the video, there is a new clip showcasing some of the personality behind The Riddle of Batman: Arkham City. There are no spoilers at all, unless the few words and phrases said would somehow ruin the experience, so don't worry about that. Read More...

I Almost Forgot The Secret World Is A MMO...
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Monday, 11th of July 2011 - 10:20 PM ]
If it wasn't for the fact that I get reminded it is a MMO in every press release, I would swear that The Secret World was not going to be one. With each new screen and video that is ever so slowly hitting the web or my inbox I get a sense of confusion at first. So far the game doesn't look like a standard MMO. But as we all know, looks can be very deceiving, which is the case again with the following images and videos. Below you can see the new screens and video showcasing a new area in the game called The Savage Coast. Read More...

by Corey Dockendorf [ Thursday, 7th of July 2011 - 04:54 PM ]
It's been six years. Six years since World of Warcarft first came out. Recently we had patch notes and the release of 4.2 with Ragnaros back in full force. Exciting right?! Oh the expansion leak, that's what you're here for… the fake leak… Really folks? Within the six years that World of Warcraft has been around, when was the last time you saw a leak for an expansion this close to Blizzcon that wasn't leaked by Blizzard…? Seriously? World of Warcraft is like a tight lipped zoo. Read More...

Review: Transformers: Dark Of The Moon
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 5th of July 2011 - 11:07 PM ]
As I am sure you undoubtedly know, the new Transformers film is in theaters. This also means that the new game based on the film, Transformers: Dark Of The Moon, has hit shelves to try and draw more money out of our pockets due to nostalgia. Yep, here is yet another film based game. Another chance for a game company to rush something out just to catch a few extra bucks from the hype. Let's see how this fairs against all of the other film based shit games out there. The Story After the events of the last film, the Autobots have taken it upon themselves to help the human race by performing secret missions to keep the peace of the world. Read More...
