Who’s ready for Bioshock: Infinite? Well, the wait isn’t too much longer (for me…about 6 more hours since I’m headed to the midnight launch!) as it hits retail stores tomorrow! If you are on the fence about this game I highly recommend you jump off that fence and get to your local game store tomorrow as Bioshock: Infinite has been well received by the critics thus far. The PC version, via Metacritic, has over 38 critics reviews thus far and is averaging in at 95/100. That’s pretty impressive so far.
The launch trailer for Bioshock: Infinite has been released today from 2K games & Irrational Games to get you more pumped up for it’s release. (more…)Posted in: Microsoft, News, PC, Sony Tags: 2k games, Bioshock, Bioshock: Infinite, Irrational Games
I felt that the naval battles of Assassin’s Creed III is one of the best new features that has come to the franchise, which you can read my review here. Granted I don’t want Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag to be all about those naval battles, I do want to see a good “pirate” game so to speak. In Black Flag you will take on the role of Edward Kenway, who is the father of Haytham Kenway who you will remember from Assassin’s Creed III. Edward is a British pirate and member of the Assassin Order. You will take him all across the Caribbean to places like Havana, Kingston, & Nassau.

We all knew it was a matter of time before Gearbox Software announced a level cap increase. But we also pondered what the pricing would be. Would it be free for the season pass holders? Are they going to do the insane and make us pay more for it? And when the heck is it going to release? Also, at the beginning of the month they teased a new, 6th playable character as well. When is that going to release? What kind of character is it going to be? Gearbox has finally answered most of these questions – to an extent.

Over the weekend the Spring Equinox happened, and just like the seasons change, the next Call of Duty‘s reveal should only be a few short weeks away. Supposed details surrounding the game’s plot, weapons and mechanics are supposedly starting to leak out. Considering the source, a random YouTube user, take all of what is coming with a grain of salt, but keep in mind that Modern Warfare 3 had its own huge leak two years ago that proved accurate.

Namco Bandai Games released another “making of” video from their upcoming Star Trek: The Video Game title. The new vid features a look at the Gorn.
When the minds at Paramount were deciding which villain to cast in the central role in the game the Gorn came top of mind right away. (more…)Posted in: Microsoft, PC, Sony Tags: Namco Bandai Games, paramount, Star Trek: The Video Game
EA wants to show you, the gamer, that they love you, buy offering you heavily discounted PC / Xbox 360/ PS3 titles for the next week. Over 200 titles are discounted up to 70% off including some big names from last year.
Some of the noteworthy deals include Battlefield 3 Premium for $24.99, Crysis 3 for $29.99, Mass Effect 3 for $9.99 and Hitman Absolution for $15.00. They’re also throwing in free shopping on physical item orders over $25. I couldn’t possibly list all of the games here, so check out the Origin Store Front for all of the deals.
Will this be enough to sway users to Origin after the disastrous launch of Sim City? I’m sure that EA will be a huge influx of cash from these deals, and Crysis 3’s inclusion is surprising considering the game came out only a few weeks ago. Although players who purchased Sim City and then were offered free copies of Battlefield 3, among other games, must be pissed off that the company is discounting the games used as an apology– effectively tarnishing it.Posted in: Microsoft, News, PC, Sony Tags: EA, Electronic Arts, Gamer Appreciation, Need For Speed Most Wanted, origin, sale, Sim City 4, The Sims 3

Gearbox Software is at it again, offering up some new skins and a SMG for your characters in Borderlands 2. This time it is in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day. Here is how Gearbox Software describes the holiday in Borderlands terms:
Each year, around this time, the Zaford clan takes a break from their war with the Hodunk bandit family to celebrate their good fortune and honor those that have passed on, such as that time Scooter buried their son alive in a shallow grave.
During this time, those who play Borderlands 2 while connected to the internet will see a temporary increase in the drop rates and rarity of shields! Plus, Absorb shields will have a better chance to absorb enemy bullets and Booster shields will have a higher chance of dropping a shield Booster when damaged.
