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
This one slipped by me.
For a few years now, Team 17 have been updating and re-releasing Worms on various downloadable game services. They have always been the more successful 2D offering. The one title that really got me hooked though was there third 3D Worms game – Worms 4: Mayhem. An absolute blast in multiplayer it is an unusual but thoroughly entertaining night in with a few friends. How does Worms Ultimate Mayhem on Xbox 360 stack up? Continue reading
I recently picked up the Black Ops branded Madcatz PrecisionAim Xbox 360 Controller and found the thumbsticks to be very slippery. They don’t feature any rubberised grip at all.
A pack of these did just the trick. Continue reading
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
As always, I’ve found nit-picky holes in my new favourite online game-em-up, Battlefield 3. Maybe, one day, the holes won’t be there.
I learnt this time. After playing this demo for about an hour or so – I stopped. I was thoroughly enjoying it but realised I would have to play through this bonkers, story-dense section again when I got the final game. A fair few hours of Final Fantasy XIII was soured for me in the … Continue reading
We’ve had a long break with no content. Rest assured, we all have good reasons. Articles will be starting again slowly as we get back into the groove. Continue reading
Dragon Age: Origins… I love you and I hate you. “Love” and “hate” are powerful words, but they are key here, as BioWare’s first fantasy foray into the next-gen range of consoles takes the familiar mold that we’ve come to expect from Canada’s finest RPG developer, and stuffs it full of the kind of mature … Continue reading
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. 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
SOCOM I’ve never played this game before?? D’you like that one… was good right? Moving swiftly along….. SOCOM Special Forces is a great game.
That’s right, it’s only be out for a few short months, and although the initial Nintendo hype machine was in full swing building up to launch, the stalled flow of quality any software has resulted in lower than expected sales for the Big N. Still billed as Nintendo’s greatest hardware launch success, the following weeks … Continue reading
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
Its is being reported across the interwebs that the much hyped Nintendo 3DS re-working of the PS2’s Metal Gear: Snake Eater has been delayed until 2012. Several online media outlets have reported the delay, but no one has officially unofficially claimed that the official 2011 release date was officially official. So it looks as though we … Continue reading
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
So the sale is finally live. You can pick up Arrival, Lair of the Shadow Broker and Kasumi – Stolen Memory all for half price. It’s a shame that Overlord and the other auxiliary packs weren’t on offer too – but I’ll be picking up all three anyway.
