Mass Effect 3 Gets A Massive Multiplayer Expansion

Posted on October 4, 2012 by Joshua Rust

Just when you thought the universe couldn’t get any bigger in Mass Effect 3, Bioware/EA comes out of nowhere and announces a new multiplayer expansion (called Mass Effect 3: Retaliation) that lands on October 9th.

But what is included in this, the biggest multiplayer expansion yet, you may ask? Well, there are 6 new maps, 16 new characters, new enemy type: The Collectors, new weapons to collect, new “challenge” feature, and each map will receive “environmental hazards” to make things a little tougher.

Nintendo Announces 3DS Digital Releases for 2012

Posted on October 4, 2012 by Jeff Wade

Nintendo fans in America might not have gotten the fancy broadcast and official Nintendo Direct that their European breathren received  but  NoA outlined their 3DS digital release for the rest of the year this afternoon.

The biggest surprise came in a sequel to the eShop’s best game Pushmo in the form of Crashmo, coming November 22. The sequel keeps the same pushing and pulling puzzle mechanics, but blocks will fall out from under others offering a twist on the first game’s mechanics. Previously announced Fluidity: Spin Cycle and NightSky will also hit the eShop this year.

Three of the four games in Level 5’s Guild o1 collection will be released as separate digital releases in America. Suda 51’s shooter Liberation Maiden, Yoot Saito’s simulation Aero Porto and RPG Crimson Shroud will band together in journeying to western shores.

Medal of Honor Warfighter Open Beta This Weekend

Posted on October 4, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

Still sitting on the fence about EA’s Medal of Honor Warfighter? An open Beta for Xbox Live gold members will go live tomorrow morning and last until Sunday. For Canadians, like me, this means a Thanksgiving filled with bullets, kills and certainly swearing teenagers over Xbox Live headsets.

The beta features a territories style gameplay mode called ‘Hospot’. This mode has two opposing teams rushing to secure moving control points, similar to a king of the hill match. Only one map will be playable in the beta, ‘Sarajevo Stadium’, which takes place in Bosnia.

Will you be gearing up to join the battle? The Battlefeild 3 Beta last year was a huge deal and lasted 2 weeks. I don’t really see Warfighter drumming up the same buzz.


Hitman: Absolution | Introducing The Kill

Posted on October 4, 2012 by Jesse Lord

IO Interactive, developers of Hitman: Absolution, have released another “INTRODUCING” video, this time showing all of us the multifarious ways in which we can dispatch our targets.  True to the assassin’s code, killing is very easy, but the rub is getting away without being found or accused.  Some people might like going in guns-blazing and leaving no one left to ask questions or make accusations, but others might like making things look like an accident.  Perhaps others would take a complete stealth approach, getting alone with the target, relieving him or her of their life and disposing of the body so no one is the wiser.  But enough from me right now – here’s the video:
