Do you own a PlayStation 3 and have not played either of the first two Uncharted games? Then you my friend, have been living under a mother fucking rock all these years! Either that, or you are a very thrifty shopper and knew all along that you would be able to get both, Drake's Fortune and Among Thieves together for the super low price of around $40. yep 40 bucks. So now you have no excuse to not play these spectacular games.
Oh, wait, I did for get to mention another part to this. The Among Thieves copy that comes with it. It's the game of the year edition, which has all of the DLC for that game!

If your Nintendo 3DS qualifies for the Ambassador Program, then you can start downloading free games today instead of tomorrow! It isn't as hard as some would say. All you have to do is go into the eshop, scroll to the left to "settings/other", then scroll down to "your downloads" and then choose to re download Super Mario Bros., Metroid, The legend of Zelda, Wrecking Crew, NES Open Tournament Golf, Donkey Kong Jr., Balloon Fight, Ice Climbers, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link or Yoshi. Or you can download all of them!

There will be no way for a player to kill civilians in EA's upcoming shooter Battlefield 3. During an interview with Paper, Rock, Shotgun ,the game's executive producer Patrick Bach said, "I'm trying to stay away from civilians in games like BF because I think people will do bad. I don't want to see videos on the internet where people shoot civilians. That's something I will sanitize by removing that feature from the game."
He also went on to explain that if they allowed players to shoot civilians, there would probably be backlash against the company even though EA isn't telling the players to shoot civilians, so it's easier to just not give them the choice.
Remember the whole "No Russians" level in Modern Warfare 2 and how must of a mess that was in the news? I'm guessing that EA isn't trying to bring that kind of press to Battlefield.

Do you like the Forza franchise? Do you like the Halo franchise? If love either, then you will love this trailer showing off the new warthog from Halo 4. This video gives us players an in depth look at the warthog using the Forza Motorsports 4 car show room. While you get a virtual tour of this beast, Master Chief's little digital girlfriend, Cortana gives you some history and specs about the warthog.
There is one other little thing. This isn't just the guys over at Turn 10 giving Halo a nod. You can unlock this warthog to tear up the track in the upcoming Forza Motorsports 4 with some really hard work though!

Today we get some good luck! Not only do we get a really fucking awesome look at the long awaited Twisted Metal, we got a just as long awaited release date! Valentine's Day, 2012! Is there anything better to celebrate love by blowing some shit up? I think not!

GameStop strikes again! So, anyone who buys Deus Ex: Human Evolution for the PC is supposed to get a code inside for the game to play OnLive for free. That is unless you buy your copy from GameStop. It has been reported and verified by the assholes themselves, that management told all the stores to open the games and remove the coupon and discard it. Yeah, you heard right. Open a brand new game and throw away a download code that is supposed to go the the buyer of said game! Don't believe me? look for yourself below.
GameStop's public relations, Beth Sharum also confirmed it too. Saying, "Square Enix packed the competitor's coupon with our DXHR product without our prior knowledge and we did pull and discard these coupons".
Now it is all fine and fucking dandy that they weren't told about this coupon. But instead of opening them all and pulling the coupon out. The butt licks should have just not sold ANY of them! Doing this is just like a major league baseball team taking all the prizes out of a Cracker Jack box and selling them open.
The other thing that makes this even worse, they sold these games as brand spanking new after they OPENED them to take out the coupon. How are we supposed to know that the game is brand new if the fucking fuck heads already opened it?! They could be used copies for all we know!
Now if I buy a game from GameStop and take it back the same day saying I didn't like it. Their policy is to take it back as a trade-in because it was open. It only seems fair that since they opened all of these games they should have to sell them as used copies now, right?
These guys should team up with Activision so they can just double penetrate the consumer with all the bullshit these fucks pull!
I have a new slogan for them too. "GameStop, the Wal-Mart of the video game industry!"

Do you have $99 to piss away on gaming glasses that don't fucking help you play better? Cause Gunnar Optics has teamed up with Modern Warfare 3 to bring you just that. These babies are supposed to help you with eye fatigue, but from personal experience, the only thing they do is make the game you are playing look like someone pissed all over it with the yellow tint.
But if you really want to waste your money..go right ahead, just click here to get more details.
Can't get enough Mortal Kombat in your life, can you? Have no fear, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is giving you arcade versions of Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat 2 and Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. The best part is you get all of these for around 10 bucks! Or for you Microsoft users, 800 points. It will be hitting PSN August 30 and XBLA, PC on August 31.
Not only is this classic Mortal Kombat gameplay, it will also have online leader boards, online play and trophies and achievements!
The sad part about all of this is, this collection has three full games for ten bucks and a bunch of people just wasted $15 on a shitty zombie map pack for Black Ops. Good thing Activision doesn't own the MK franchise or this collection would be about $45!

There are plenty of people out there that don't give a shit about Little Big Planet, but this demo really shows off the potential of what the PS Vita's touchscreen and camera can do. This little hand held can do a shit ton of cool stuff. And remember the Vita can do cross game chatting unlike the PS3!

Are you tired of all these modern shooters already? Then you should take a gander at this multiplayer video of Ghost Recon: Future Solider from Ubisoft. They show off some pretty cool features that no other game like it has even thought of yet. It also helps break up the monotony being a third person shooter rather than first person.
It is pretty obvious that EA and Activision aren't wishing each other good luck when the both release their similar games in a few months. They are in fact not pulling any punches either. The devil from Activision, Bobby Kotick has been blasting EA's Battlefield 3's console version, as well as some of the Infinity Ward staff rubbing it in publicly that Modern Warfare 3 will run "all the time" at 60 frames per second, taking stab at Battlefields 30 frames per second on consoles.
EA's hands aren't clean in this little "battle" either. They announced, shortly after Activision announced that their Elite stat tracker would have a monthly cost, that Battlefield would have a similar stat tracker called "Battlelog", which they bragged that it would be "absolutely free." They have also called Battlefield 3 "the best modern warfare game". Even EA CEO, John Riccitiello got into the fighting spirit and stated that he wants to see the Call of Duty franchise "rot from the core". These fighting words have kind of upset Activision's publishing head, Eric Hirshberg, and said "these attacks are bad for the industry." Hirshberg also thinks that both franchises can succeed and grow.
So, of course EA has a comeback for that too! Their corporate communications guy, Jeff Brown stepped up to defend his company's full court press by saying ""Welcome to the big leagues Eric -- I know you're new in the job but someone should have told you this is an competitive industry." And really driving the knife in by following that up by saying "You've got every reason to be nervous. Last year Activision had a 90 share in the shooter category. This year, Battlefield 3 is going to take you down to 60 or 70. At that rate, you’ll be out of the category in 2-3 years. If you don't believe me, go to the store and try to buy a copy of Guitar Hero or Tony Hawk."
With still about 2 months to go before these games start to hit the shelves, I can see this war of words to continue back and forth all the way up til then!

Gamescom has given so, so much game footage from all of the up coming blockbusters and now this time we get 9 minutes of Eizo sneaking around and killing like the true old bad ass he is.
Remember that DLC for Portal 2 that Valve promised for this summer? Yeah, summer is almost over, but don't worry, that DLC is still coming this summer. Very late summer, but still summer. Valve says there will be new test chambers, leaderboards and challenge modes for both single and multiplayer. So don't complain that the DLC is taking so long because the shit is fucking free! Nothing better than free right?

You heard right Madden fans. The NFL Sunday Ticket will be coming to PS3 this season. If you don't have Direct TV or the Sunday Ticket yet, you will be able to purchase the full season pass for $339.95 and for those who already have the package, you can add it to your PS3 for $50.
Now this is a great thing for all of us who don't have the Sunday Ticket yet or Direct TV all together. But who the fuck is adding this to their PS3 for $50 on top of what they already pay? All you are doing is adding a device to watch it on. Wait a second..I figured it out now. This is for the people who want to watch multiple games at the same time in the same room. Hooking up two giant 60 inch screens in your living room for the football season would be really sick!

Oh shit! I forgot to mention in the title that the dedicated servers for Modern Warfare 3 was only for the PC version. So sorry to get some of your hopes up. But anyways..I guess all that complaining about Modern Warfare 2 not having dedicated servers has finally gotten through to the right people.
And for all the people who think this is bad news, don't fret too much because the folks at Infinity Ward are working very hard to figure out how to stop modders and cheaters who take advantage of dedicated servers.
This new trailer from Ubisoft shows off a new toy in Ezio's bag of goodies to kill people! No name for it yet, but it is like a curved hidden blade so he can do some really cool trick kills. Not only that, this little fucker is a multi-tasker, Ezio can also slide down ropes like a zip line and use it to get those hard to reach spots he can't quite grab. Don't believe me? take a look for yourself.

More and more Battlefield 3 gameplay footage for your eyes too see! This time they showed off some of the multiplayer gameplay at a Gamescom today. The video was taken off of a camera and not a direct feed so the resolution is pretty shitty, but at least you get an idea of what to expect.
After watching this game footage, my jaw again hit the fucking floor! I mean, Battlefield 2 was one thing, but Battlefield 3 is taking it to a whole, whole new crazy ass ball smacking level! I would describe it, but I would just fall over hyperventilating just trying too. So you will be better off just watching it yourself.
It was only fitting that the guys from Turn 10 show off their behind the scenes video of the Hockenheim race track at Gamescom. Even if you don't love or like racing simulators, this video will at least make you appreciate the painstaking work that goes into making sure every single, little, tiny fucking detail gets put in!

Every one's favorite crazy cold scientist will be roaming the streets of Arkham City. Rocksteady released this CHILLING trailer showing off Mr. Freeze looking pretty bad ass. sorry about the shitty little cheesy pun. To make it up to you, check out the Ultimate Mr. Freeze puns by none other than Arnold himself!

For those of you who aren't old enough, Counter Strike is a big fucking deal! This game along with Doom IS the reason why you are all playing these first person shooter games today. I for one remember spending hours, no, that's a load of shit. I spent DAYS, not hours, playing this game. I'm pretty sure when this game hits consoles, me and a ton of other people will be spending so many hours playing it.

So it seems that Microsoft has been giving out it's rewards members extra rewards. My account as well has been awarded the scheduled amount of 240 points 5 times today instead of just one! Don't think this is the new way of rewards though, Microsoft is hard at work trying to figure out why.
Now I know all the people who bought the special edition of Call of Duty Black Ops only really care about the one new zombie map "moon". But there are, at least I'm guessing there area handful of people who just got the regular edition. So these people, who are willing to spend the $15 to get all the zombie maps that we have already played, might just want to know what all these maps including "moon" will be like.

So I just figured out why everyone is waiting to buy a Nintendo 3DS. Everyone who hasn’t bought one yet is waiting for the new flame red color that Nintendo is releasing on September 9 th! What’s that? Theyre only waiting for the price drop that hits on Friday. Well fuuuck, I guessed wrong I then.
I’m betting some folks are now going to wait a bit longer now to get a this shiny new red 3DS for 170 big ones. Oh, and Star Fox 64 3DS releases on the same day too!

The Modern Warfare 3 news just keeps on coming! This video gives you a little sample of the crazy shit you will have to got through too survive. Man, those guys over at Epic Games should have gotten their horde mode copy written with all these games using their idea!
Man, those guys over at Infinity Ward and Activision are really trying to get Modern Warfare 3 to sell a shit ton more than Black Ops did. Not only are they putting it on the Wii, they are also going to port MW3 to the DS to be called Modern Warfare 3: Defiance.
some people are trying to figure out why they aren't putting this out on the 3DS. I have that answer though. There are millions upon millions of people with a DS and maybe only a few million people have 3DS, so it is a bit of a waste of time and a fucking lot more work to port this game into 3D.
This might also be a good move for Activision because I know I am not buy MW3 for any console because I am a Battlefield kind of guy, but I just might pick this DS port of MW3, as I'm sure a lot of other people will be doing the same.

So you can't wait to un-install World of Warcraft and start getting your jedi on? Nope, we don't have a release date for you just yet, but we do have a little taste of the jedi consular class for you in this trailer. If I were you, I would start warming that light saber up for some epic battles!

Dear bullshit diary,
What the fuck is up with this Jersey Shore Avatar clothing?! WHY in the fucking world would anyone think this is a good idea? It’s one thing to buy useless shit for your Xbox Live avatar, but this Jersey Shore shit is just waaaaaay too far! I mean really? Who would buy THIS pile of monkey shit!
Now, really, it is one thing for these little teeny shit headed girls to love this crap, but any self respecting gamer should be shaking their head in disgust when they see this. What does Microsoft take us for anyway? A bunch of gamers who wish they had abs, drink ourselves fucking stupid or tan ourselves so much that we could change our skin color legally? Or, that we are all complete fucking losers who fantasize about being like these sorry excuses for humans? What the fuck were you thinking Microsoft, other than money?
Someone really needs to find that Snookie bitch and do something like my good friend Douglas Quaid would do, ram their fist into her stomach and rip out her god damn spine! AGGGGGGH!

There have been rumors swirling about Boarderlands 2 for a few days now and 2K Games just said fuck it! They announced it earlier this morning officially. They also teased there will be new characters, skills, equipment, and weapons scattered through out Pandora.
They also gave out a vague release date window. Sometime after April 1, 2012 during the companies next fiscal year.
And one other thing. If you want to get a glimpse of the game, you don't have to wait too long. They will have a booth both at Gamescom and PAX Prime. Gamescom is this August 17-21 and PAX Prime will be August 26-28.

Isn't it weird that every time there is some Call of Duty or Battlefield news that the other wiggles in some information too? Well, with all this Call of Duty news, it just so happens that some Battlefield info came out on the same day. This time it is Battlefield series producer Patrick Bach giving the Call of Duty franchise a bit of a punch in the kidney.
During an interview with GamerZines he said, " The business goals for us are not to release a game every year." And when asked if they were thinking about following the Activision's production with it's Call of Duty franchise, Bach replied "I know for sure that there aren't any discussions about doing that," he continued. "That would be the killing blow for the franchise." Which we all know that's what exactly happened with the Guitar Hero franchise that Activision kept cramming down our throats.
Them sound like fightin' words to me.
So, with news that Black Ops has out sold Modern Warfare 2 by three million units, now Activision announced that MW3 will be heading to that crippled piece of shit console, the Wii. I wonder if Infinity Ward is going to brag about how many frames a second it will run on that!
But anyway, adding it to the Wii is a smart move after all. They get to add a few more million on top of what they will already get from PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
There has been a lot of FPS news today. Mostly Black Ops, MW3, and some Battlefield 3. But this is all about what Activision and Treyarch call DLC and its called Rezurrection. I wouldn't really count this as real DLC simply because it only consists of one new map called "moon" and its exactly what it says. You play on the moon and the cool thing is that the map will have low gravity so you can jump around like you are in Halo now.
After that, nothing is new. The rest consists of the zombie maps that Treyarch redid for the Hardened and Prestige Editions of Black Ops. The best part is that it will still cost the people who don't waste their money of fucking special editions a cool 15 bucks! Thanks for squeezing more money out on the consumers Activision.
Oh yeah. It comes out August 23.

Amazon strikes again! This time they are giving anyone who pre-orders Gears of War 3 a $20 credit towards any future gaming purchase. They are also throwing in the Savage Kantus exclusive skin shown below.
We all know that EA just loves it when you buy their games brand new because they just fucking hate other retailers selling their games used. So they are dangling three super cars in consumer's faces to get them to buy Need for Speed: The Run new, well, that and the online pass that comes with it. Funny thing is, that they aren't charging any more for it just like all those battlefield limited editions. So, just look at it as EA thanking you for not being a cheap ass and waiting a few weeks to buy it used.
There has been an fucking shit load of Assassin's Creed: Revelations multiplayer put out and the guys over at GameTrailers.com have all your stabby and cool sneaky moves. Check some of the awesomeness below!

So you couldn't get enough of the Gears of War 3 'Horde 2.0 Briefing' Trailer? Well, we have a little more for you showing off some of the levels and more action, along with a little sound from none other than Ice-T, who will be playing a character called Griffin.
We are one step closer to playing the long, long, loooong awaited Diablo 3. Blizzard has been teasing us with this game for years now. They have shown us teaser after teaser, even gameplay footage, but now we get to finally see some beta action that looks fucking amazing!
So it’s hot as fuck outside and there are no new retail video games to play. That’s why they invented Xbox Live Arcade! It just so happens that Ms. Splosion Man came out right before this crazy ass heat wave hit. This game is a direct sequel to their very popular Splosion Man, which takes place right after those evil scientists tricked Splosion Man with a birthday cake and captured him. But those dumb ass scientists accidently bumped into some shit while celebrating their little victory and ended up creating Ms. Splosion Man in the process. And she is fucking pissed!
