0911 Armored Kill 1

If you’re a Battlefield Premium PC member, then the wait should end today for DICE’s new Battlefield 3 DLC, Armored Kill.  A staggered release for the downloadable content started last week, as PS3 Premium members got first dibs on Armored Kill.  Effective today, Premium members on the PC and Xbox 360 platforms should be able to access the DLC.  As for everyone else, Armored Kill, which boasts of the “Biggest Map in BF History”, will […]

0910 Warfighter

On December 2012, the film Zero Dark Thirty will hit theaters; this is a film dealing with the mission to capture or assassinate only the one of the world’s most hated men, Osama bin Laden, or die trying.  And in what appears to be a cross-promotion for the movie and Electronic Arts’ upcoming title Medal of Honor: Warfighter, two new maps were announced today, straight out of the aforementioned Sony Pictures Entertainment film.   The […]

0907 Remember Me

  Video game crushes aside, Remember Me is shaping up to be one of the more promising titles of 2013.  Capcom’s upcoming release, which is due May next year, will put you in the shoes of Nilin, a memory hunter in 2084 Neo-Paris who doesn’t remember a single thing.  She can change other people’s memories or steal them entirely, and she will be doing a lot of that as she tries to clear herself (as […]

0824 GTA V 1

  If you had recently seen what looked like a genuine screenshot advertising a GTA V release date to fall sometime in “Q4 2012”, then don’t get yourself too excited.  Don’t start blocking out dates on your calendar or scheduling after-school or after-work hours on your planner so that you can have enough time to explore Los Santos en route to 100 percent completion.  As you might have guessed, that supposed leak from the Rockstar […]

Guild Wars 2: Pros and Cons (Part 1 of 2) by Dyann Callahan

  Guild Wars 2: The Pros   Guild Wars 2 hit the market a little over a week ago to the delight of fans everywhere. One of the main reasons to pick up Guild Wars 2 is simply the amount of things this game does right compared to games in recent years. Even though the game is still early in launch, if you have yet to pick it up – then maybe you should. Before […]

0822 Ubi

If you’ve played Ubisoft titles such as Assassin’s Creed, you can definitely relate to the age-old problem of the always-online requirement for the DRM system.  One moment you’d be this close to completing a certain level of an Ubisoft game, or a certain quest or mission, then before you know it, your connection drops and you’re booted out of the server.    Then you start off with the sailor talk, quite understandable if you’ve invested […]

0904 Armored Kill

  DICE has a surprise for all you Battlefield 3 players – two, in fact, if you come to think of it.  Regardless of what platform you prefer, a fresh patch is available for all versions of Battlefield 3, a week ahead of the release of the Armored Kill DLC for PC.  This will mostly be a stability patch designed to correct a variety of inconsistencies and bugs in the Battlefield system.  If you submitted […]

0903 Hearthfire

  Better late than never, as they say.  It’s been almost a week since Bethesda announced a new add-on for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim called Hearthfire.  This new add-on will be available tomorrow for 400 Microsoft Points via Xbox Live, though a PC release date hasn’t been announced yet.  If the Dawnguard add-on was basically Skyrim meets Twilight (minus the real-life Bella cheating on Edward, natch), Hearthfire is Skyrim meets the Sims; you’ll be […]

0831 Guild Wars 2

Around three thousand players got a literal dose of bad karma yesterday when Arenanet banned them permanently from playing Guild Wars 2.  The reason being was that these players were able to “seize the day” when a certain exploit was discovered, allowing them to buy items on the cheap from karma vendors then fuse the items together to make super-weapons for a fraction of the normal price.  Another 1,000 players were suspended for 72 hours […]

0830 AC3

    So far, so good for Ubisoft – Assassin’s Creed III is a little less than three months away, but creative director Alex Hutchinson and company have been whetting our appetites with several great trailers and video commentaries.  There have been two trailers released this week – a Naval Warfare Walkthrough posted this Wednesday and one posted today, which discusses the finer points of American Revolution combat and the weapons lead character Connor Kenway […]

0830 Whore of the Orient

We already knew the follow-up to L.A. Noire would be entitled Whore of the Orient – Team Bondi said as much around the time the PC version was released late last year by Rockstar Games.  But to be honest, it’s been quite a while since we heard something from the guys at Team Bondi, so we’ll forgive you if you’ve forgotten about the fact that the Australian developer is planning a follow-up.  To jog your […]

Disqualifications at the MLG Summer Championship: League of Legends eSports

At the recent MLG summer championship tournament, two of the better teams on the roster decided to be less than intelligent for the day. The tournament itself was in the finals, with the top two teams ready to do battle for a prize pool of $32,000. The two teams in question, Curse NA and Diginitas had plans that wound up falling outside what everyone was expecting.   The first thing that occurred to clue people […]

Dark Souls: Prepare to Die on the PC (after some port-tweaking) by Eric Callahan

When Dark Souls hit consoles last fall, it was received with hesitation at being an unknown ip, but it was quickly discovered to be a game that delivered high quality. Finally hardcore gamers had a new challenge that actually took skill, and dare I say, a bit of intelligence to beat. PC gamers got to stare in awe, and petitioned Namco Bandi for a port. While it was always on the internet as a console […]
