Left 4 Dead 2 Revisit Left 4 Dead

Left 4 Dead 2 Revisit Left 4 Dead
It was hinted at last month when hackers took the Left 4 Dead 2 PC demo apart. Now, Valve has made it official: Zoey, Francis, Bill & Louis have gone south to the Georgia region & will meet up with Coach, Ellis, Nick & Rochelle. Dubbed The Passing, it’ll bring the fab four from the first game into the region of Left 4 Dead 2. The DLC pack will add a new co-op campaign, a new co-op challenge mode plus new places to play in during your Scavenge, Versus, & Survival matches. In addition, players will have a new Uncommon Infected to battle, a new melee weapon & a new gun to...

Review: Torchlight (PC)

Review: Torchlight (PC)
As with any entertainment medium, gaming evolves with the times. Changes in hardware not to mention changes the consumers create an environment that pretty much demands a new & improved experience on a constant basis. It’s especially evident in today’s generation since all the available platforms support digital distribution, allowing the various publishers to re-release their back catalog in hopes of grabbing your hard earned money with a nostalgic hook. More often than not, older gamers (such as myself) find that the titles we loved a decade ago (or two, depending on the game)...

The Onion Reveals Modern Warfare 3

The Onion Reveals Modern Warfare 3
The folks at The Onion (a satirical news network that will take on just about anything if it can be funny) has now jumped on all the Modern Warfare 2 hype. In the below world exclusive piece, they reveal the details behind Modern Warfare 3, spoiling the various mission types & the real world detail that will be found in the game. The question is, did Infinity Ward put too much realism into it? Nah, realism is what every hardcore l33t gamer is looking for, right? If you thought you put in a lot of time in the previous games, wait until you fire this baby up. If everything follows the normal...

So, the rumors that started floating around the other day are true: Nintendo plans to release a new DSi with a bigger screen. Dubbed the DSi XL here in the States, it will carry a screen that’s 93% bigger than the current DSi. In Japan, it will retail for a bit more than the regular model, so I’m going to assume the cost increase will carry over in both North America & in Europe. Before all the haters start flaming their favorite forums, I just want to remind everyone that this is pretty much par for the course for Nintendo. How many different iterations of the Game Boy was released...

“Leaked” Left 4 Dead 2 Trailer

“Leaked” Left 4 Dead 2 Trailer
You know, I’m pretty leery when I see trailers marked as leaked these days. Especially when we are so close to the launch of the game, such as the case here with Left 4 Dead 2. So, while I use the term “leaked” very loosely, the trailer itself is pretty cool. You get a better feel for the personalities of the survivors while also seeing all three levels of infected in action. From the standard zombies to the uncommon infected to the special infected, this sequel is posed to be a much more varied ride than it’s predecessor… Bookmark It Hide...

Guitar Hero fans who are looking for a good deal got some great news yesterday. Activision is offering a free copy of Guitar Hero: Van Halen to those who purchase Guitar Hero 5. The interesting part is the dates make it appear that those who take advantage of this offer will get it before the street date. I can’t see that happening though, so I would bet it’s a rebate for the cost of the game, not the game itself. Go here for all the details… Bookmark It Hide Sites

Another new Special Infected has been announced for Left 4 Dead 2. If you remember, Valve announced the Charger at E3. Now, we get the Spitter. This guy makes a hacking sound & then coughs up a ball of green phelgm. Once it hits the ground, it spreads & emits a gas that will slowly damage the survivors. You can see the what it looks like here… Bookmark It Hide Sites

X3: Terran Conflict Gets Update 2.1

EGOSOFT announced a new update today for X3: Terran Conflict. Update 2.1 will have the usual performance upgrades & bug fixes. But, what caught my eye on it was that it will also include a community developed mission. The new mission, titled Treasure Hunt, was developed by community user Ketaar. The description reads” Players will have to traverse across the greatest reaches of the X Universe looking for clues to lead them to the ultimate prize”. To create it, he used the X3 Mission Director plug in. For me, I love to see developers giving tools to the community to create missions or mods....

E3 Hands On Preview: Left 4 Dead 2

During the Microsoft Press Briefing for E3, a surprising trailer was shown that we didn’t realize was even in development, let alone would be shown at the conference. It took us a few seconds to realize it was a sequel to one of the best games released last year. Yes, Left 4 Dead 2 is coming our way this November! While at the conference, I managed to get some hands-on time with Valve’s zombiefest & discovered some cool new additions to the franchise. Bookmark It Hide Sites

Zombie Temp Worker – Dancing Machine

This is another one of the viral vids PopCap has been releasing to promo the release of Plant vs Zombies. I love them, they crack me up. D There are more of them on YouTube if you want to see the rest. I played through the timed demo today & had a blast. I highly recommend giving it a shot. It isn’t the Peggle killer, but it’s completely addicting! The game releases tomorrow on PC, with a possible console release sometime in the future (PopCap won’t say for sure if it is or isn’t coming to the home consoles).
