Halo 3 Beta signups

Evilavatar has the word today.
I’ve already said my piece about all of this earlier. But on the flipside, getting into a big beta like this is still a fun thing.
So good luck to everyone trying to get in.
You’ll need it.

Belated Well Wishing and Links

So an overdue happy Thanksgiving to readers who celebrate it. I hope your time with family and loved ones was not unnecessarily painful.
On to the various FPS tidbits, I’ve mentioned Rogue Warrior before, you know, the game with a real life ex-SEAL behind it. It’s being developed by Zombie studios (but oddly enough it’s not [...]

Left 4 Dead

News from Evil Avatar(himself) this morning. Guys who did Counter-Strike are releasing a Source Co-op multiplayer Zombie game! As you all know, I’m all about Co-op and having a survival game set in our favorite zombie scenario sounds like it could be a blast, if they do it right. There’s a release of 2007 which [...]

Release Days

With the release of the PS3 and Wii news has, of course, been focusing on the new console’s debut. So FPS news has been skimpy of some. Though Gears of War taking over the #1 spot on Xbox Live, kicking Halo 2 down a notch has come as no surprise. I spent an entire day [...]

Gaming on TV

This weekend I was flippin through the channels and I happened to land on USA. Mostly because there was female wrestling and the girls were fairly attractive. I didn’t watch long, but during a commericial I happened to see an advertisement for MLG. After the wrestling they were having an hour long or half hour [...]

Keeping Tabs

I know it’s easy for things to fall off the radar and a lot of games without major hype tend to do that. Even if they look good or not. So without further ado here’s some quick briefs:
Eurogamer “sits” down with Anton Bolshakov and they have a nice chat about S.T.A.L.K.E.R. :Shadow of (I hate [...]

FEAR: Extraction Point Reviewed

So I finally finished the game this weekend. I managed to take my time and really enjoy it.
As most of you know the game picks up right where the first left off. You’re now stuck in the city looking for a way out. Luckily not everyone died in the helicopter crash so you’ve got some [...]

Gamespot War of the Titans

They were kind enough to spam me with an e-mail flier announcing their BF2142 tournament is going to be on “TV” for all of us to watch as two teams battle it out for nice cash reward and a smattering of other prizes as well. Apparently there’s already been a bunch of matches, but [...]

What do you FEAR?

Gametrailers had a user movie contest for FEAR. Basically you used the game FEAR to make a movie (or in the winner’s case live action with a FEAR ‘overlay’) the winner got some nifty prizes. Since I didn’t submit a movie the prizes are a moot point. More interested in the winning film itself. Which [...]

Crysis Averted!

It’s safe you can go back to your homes until March of next year.
Okay so maybe not averted so much as delayed. EA recently announced several new games, sequels and whatnot. Along with their plans for Sims 3 (oh boy) they pushed back Crysis and Army of Two until the end of their current fiscal [...]
