DayZ – Complete Loot Tables {UPDATED}

DayZ – Complete Loot Tables {UPDATED}

I have put a fair few hours in to the popular mod for ARMA II, and have been frequently spoiling myself with loot maps, loot tables, and weapon charts. The most recent chart that I found incredibly useful was one linked on the DayZ forums: “DayZ Complete Weapons Statistics” or “Man, Lee Enfield is Freaking … Continue reading

Setting up the Hauppauge HD PVR with Total Media Extreme 2

Setting up the Hauppauge HD PVR with Total Media Extreme 2

Hauppauge have been in the PC-based video capture business for years. With a wide variety of products, they have always provided a device to capture the latest video standards at a consumer-level price point. The software side has tended to be a bit of a mine-field though, and the HD PVR is no exception to this. Hopefully this guide will lessen the pain for anyone who just wants to record some beastly gameplay from their HD games console. Continue reading

Battlefield 3 Pre-order DLC bonuses – not so exclusive now!

Battlefield 3 Pre-order DLC bonuses – not so exclusive now!

Battlefield 3 had a variety of exclusive extras available to those who pre-ordered via various specific retailers. The most notorious of these was the “Physical Warfare Pack” which was available to Game/Gamestation customers only. Fan lashback was so strong that EA relented and said it would be available to all (for free) at a later unspecified time. That time has been and gone, you can download the pack now, but you can now also acquire all of the other content too. At a price. Continue reading

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning ~ Quick Demo Impressions

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning ~ Quick Demo Impressions

I intend to get Mass Effect 3. Playing the demo for Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning unlocks an exclusive weapon and set of armour for Mass Effect 3. Therefore I played and completed the Reckoning demo.

In a nutshell – a better, more open and enjoyable Fable I, minus the humour. I initially just wanted to plough through the thing to unlock the ME3 gun, I ended up delaying the demo’s completion for some hours because I was having a fantastic time. Continue reading

Most Wanted: Batman Arkham City

Most Wanted: Batman Arkham City

Batman: Arkham Asylum didn’t exactly set a fire under fans during pre-production, but it was Rocksteady Studios and Warner Bros. who had the last laugh as their now groundbreaking title went on to win several Game of the Year awards, and our highest possible praises. This time things are different: the eyes of industry are … Continue reading

MW3 vs BF3 – Activision Publishing CEO speaks out

The multimedia juggernaut that is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and its nemesis Battlefield 3 may be several weeks away, but the war has well and truly begun. Employees from each title’s publisher have been attributed to some interesting comments, the latest of being EA CEO John Riccitiello’s prediction that Modern Warfare 3‘s fan-base … Continue reading

RETROspective REview: Medal of Honor (2010)

RETROspective REview: Medal of Honor (2010)

The recent remake of Medal of Honor was not a title I purchased based on review scores. As an unashamed, newly-converted addict to the brilliance of Battlefield, I couldn’t resist the pull of a free Beta trial for the upcoming Battlefield 3. However, I was pleasantly surprised by a thoroughly entertaining single player campaign. Although … Continue reading

They’re heeere! F.3.A.R. Review

They’re heeere! F.3.A.R. Review

Pick up gun. Shoot everything that moves. Rinse and repeat… It’s the standard formula for a vast swathe of first and third person shooters out there, each with their own unique little twist on an otherwise very familiar (and very profitable) formula. We’ve been following the hype around the F.E.A.R. franchise’s third instalment, and a … Continue reading

Mass Effect 2: Power-Play your way to ME3

Mass Effect 2: Power-Play your way to ME3

Mass Effect 3 is due to be released worldwide on March 6, 2012 for PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. I’m really looking forward to this, I’ve played through number 2 but skipped over the first. The series provides a top-notch story setting, told well and with superb dialogue interaction. I was put off the … Continue reading

GTA IV Gets a pair of new shiny shoes

GTA IV Gets a pair of new shiny shoes

RockStar’s 2008 titanic hit has been given a thorough going over within the modding community, from fat rag dolls to naked ladies, new weapons and Le Man sports cars, but none have been as inspiring as the latest teaser from Aimedehaire.

I want to go and live on a Minecraft floating island

I want to go and live on a Minecraft floating island

Browsing around the swamps of user-generated Minecraft its hard to find a good one sometimes, so I thought I would share this time-lapse video with you all. Hopefully when it hits Xbox 360 later this year there will be plenty more projects like this for every one to enjoy.
