Get Entire Gears Trilogy With Pre-order of Judgment At Wal * Mart

Posted on February 11, 2013 by Rae Michelle Richards

Gamer’s who pre-order Gears of War Judgment at Wal * Mart will be given vouchers for not only the original Gears of War but also the rest of the games in the trilogy – 2009’s Gears of War 2 and 2011’s Gears of War 3. For new players that is a hell of a deal, allowing them to play through all four titles for the price of one!

A demo version of the new Overrun mode for Gears of War Judgment will be released to the public on March 19th through the Xbox Live Marketplace. That’s also the same day that the game comes out, so perhaps there will be some people who will be on the fence on launch day.

Dead Space 3’s Terrifying $160 Dev Team Edition Detailed

Posted on January 13, 2013 by Rae Michelle Richards

Looking for forward to EA’s Dead Space 3? Well, the publisher has unveiled the $160, Dev Team Edition, for the most hardcore necromorph hunters out there.  For an entry price like that you’ll get the game on your platform of choice (PS3, Xbox 360 or PC),  an 8 inch Black Marker statue, a Med Pack Water Bottle, 20 page note book filled with extra lore, an art book and post cards.

There was a time when Collector’s Editions of blockbuster videogames were a little daunting with almost every triple AAA title releasing an version that costs nearly double the price. Luckily things have slowed down a bit, save for the Halos, Dead Spaces and Call of Duties of the world.

Are you a fan of limited edition games? I’ve personally bought the Halo 3 limited edition (with Cat Helmet!) and the limited edition Gears of War 3 steel box, but little else. If the Dead Space 3 Dev Team Edition sounds up your alley get more information on EA’s website.


Gears of War 3 Contest

Posted on May 16, 2012 by Daniel Shannon

We’ve decided to reboot our Gears of War 3 contest. In retrospect, starting such a contest in the first week of our existence was a bad call. Also, the requirements and the mountain of legalese were probably unhelpful.

Here is the new setup for the contest. We’ll give away 3 copies of Gears of War 3 once we’ve reached 500 likes on Facebook. After that number has been reached, people will have a few days to enter our drawing via our Facebook page. We will, naturally, make an announcement on the site with further details when that occurs.

The prizes will be three copies of Gears of War 3 for the Xbox 360. Two of these will be autographed by the good people at Epic Games. The only requirements for entry are that you must live in North America and you agree that we are not liable for any problems with shipping. Contrary to popular opinion, Broken Joysticks does not secretly control the US postal service. We’d also appreciate it if you were over 18, because I don’t want to receive any angry letters from outraged parents. I receive enough of those as is.

Win a Signed Copy of Gears of War 3

Posted on May 1, 2012 by Daniel Shannon

If there is one thing we at Broken Joysticks love besides video games, it’s creativity. Good films, timeless literature, mind boggling abstract paintings, and performance artists covering themselves with live fire ants rarely fails to stimulate our right brains. However, it recently came to our attention that driving Chainsaw Bayonets into the necks of locusts is also stimulating. This realization, which sparked a prairie fire in the staff’s collective unconscious, convinced us to combine the two. Thus, we are proud to announce our Gears of War 3 contest. We’re giving away a signed copy of Gears of War 3 to a reader whose creativity proves them worthy of such a prize. You can read the details after the jump. We apologize in advance for all the legalese.
