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

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.

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

Devil May Cry Reboot

Devil May Cry Reboot

Amongst all the announcements and teasers at E3 this year, I must admit that I completely missed the latest teaser trailer for what appears to be a Devil May Cry reboot. Having been a huge fan of the series up till the last installment, it would be good to see this franchise get a fresh … Continue reading

Duke Nukem Forever: Review

Duke Nukem Forever: Review

Pure, simple, fun. For a game that has taken 15 years, multiple court hearings and four developers to complete, Duke Nukem Forever (DNF) is a glorious throwback to classic 1990’s first person shooters, and as stated by the Duke himself, “forever takes a long time” but thankfully not much has changed.
