2011 Game of the Year

Most of those other sites that you read have this super crazy fucking formula to figure out what their game of the year is. That’s perfectly fine because those sites have to take in consideration of all the contributors as a whole. So there really isn’t any fair or good way for one site to proclaim their game of the year without contributors or readers getting pissed off with the decision.

This site however, only has one contributor, so who is going to fucking fight with me about game of the year? Not a damn sole! I do have a group of folks that whisper their opinions which I try to take in consideration, but at the end of the day, I don’t really give a flying shit what they think either!

Now it’s time to set the rules for what makes a game the best of the year. Rule number one and the only rule, the game has to be released at retail from January 1st to December 31st. That’s it! So sorry Minecraft you don’t fucking count. click after the break to find out who won!

No more avatar guns for Xbox 360

If you don't have a gun for your Xbox 360 avatar yet and want too. You'd better do it before that ball drops in New York. Microsoft is taking down all fire arms of any kind that are available for purchase in the avatar store.  You will be able to keep the ones you currently have you just have to own them before the first of the year.

Microsoft is pulling the weapons because they don't want to glorify weapons that the younger crowd of Xbox Live can see.  I guess we could fight the "Man" about our virtual second amendment rights but they are just dumb ass guns that don't do anything.

I say all however many millions of us should buy a gun and flaunt it so canceling the weapons is just a huge waste of time for Microsoft...Oh, wait. That would give them millions and millions of dollars if we did that. Would that make them arms dealers?

SWTOR is raking in the hours

Star Wars the Old Republic players have logged over 60 million hours in just under a week! That is a shit ton of hours. EA has also said that Sith Warriors are out numbering Jedi Knights by only about 40,000. The only problem is that servers are taking a beating. So find a less crowed server if you don't want to wait too long to get in.

Last Guardian is NOT canceled

GameStop got their April Fool's joke done a few months ahead of schedule when they sent out voice messages to all who pre-ordered Last Guardian that it was canceled. They have however issued a statement saying they made a mistake in their message and that they only pulled the pre-orders because there is no firm launch date. So all of you looking forward to Last Guardian don't worry, it did NOT get the axe.

Only problem I have with all of this, is why is GameStop pulling the option to pre-order? They don't usually have a problem taking peoples cash when the first fucking teaser trailer is released for a game and no release date in sight!

Call of Duy Modern Warfare DLC coming January for Elite subscribers

I don't know about you PS3 owners or people who don't have the Elite subscription, but people who do have Elite for Xbox 360 will be getting the first batch of DLC for MW3 on the 24th of January!  And as we all know, you Elite members don't have to shell out an extra dime!  Pictured above is a screen of a new map called "Park".

For the rest of you who don't have Elite, get ready to bust out your wallets cause it's probably going to be $15 for you folks. And no word yet on when the DLC will hit PS3 and non subscribers. And FYI, if you plan to buy all the DLC for MW3, BUY ELITE! It's worth the cost just for all the DLC.

BioWare Working on long queue wait times for SWTOR

BioWare's Jeff Hickman posted a statement on their community site today, ensuring players that they are working very hard to take care long waiting queues without crashing every player's experience by adding more servers. So if you are currently waiting in line and fuming about it. Take a deep breath, BioWare didn't forget about you.

You have to take into consideration that reports are saying there have been 1.5 million users already and the game doesn't officially come out till tomorrow!  This is the exact reason why they BioWare had an extensive beta testing, early install access and early access to the game. I think that every other publisher out there to take a look at what BioWare is doing right now. This is how you get a few steps ahead of your major problems!

Is this Metal Gear Soild 5 or something else?

This screen above was posted on Twitter by Hideo Kojima himself, showing off what it is he is working on seeing as he passed off Metal Gear Rising: Revengance to a whole different studio.  What ever this is, we know that it's the FOX engine that Kojima was showing off during E3.

I for one am hoping, hoping that this is Metal Gear 5 because I am so bummed out that Rising is going in a completely different direction and time frame.

Sorcery for PS3 Move releasing this spring.

Remember that little demo way back at E3 2010 of the kid running around blowing and catching evil little bastards away with his magical powers? Yeah, Sorcery is actually still alive! This Sony Move game was really the only game that Sony showed off in 2010 that had my interest in Move. The best news, other then that Sorcery isn't dead, is that it will be out this spring!

DiRT Showdown announced

Would you like to see what Gran Turismo on crack looks like? Just play a DiRT game! Codemasters revealed their newest game today.

No rules, no boundaries, the only thing that matters is who crosses that line first. There will be free roaming for freestyle stunts and just plain old joyriding.

VGA: Hitman Absolution

Agent 47 does have a soft spot. First time I think the bad ass bald mamma jamma has went into a building without killing absolutely everyone he came across!

VGA: Metal Gear Rising: Reveangeance

We have all been waiting to see what happened to Metal Gear Rising. And yes, it is still coming out.  But they changed the title up a bit, Metal Gear Rising: Reveangeance. This trailer is way the fuck over the top, and I for one am not really sure how to take it. Seems pretty Devil May Cry'ish on crack if you ask me. You can judge for yourself below.

VGA: Ray Rice gets Blitz cover

NFL Blitz Cover Ray Rice

During the VGA tonight fans were asked to vote for who they wanted on the cover of NFL Blitz. And they chose for Ray Rice to become the first cover guy for the resurrected franchise. But is that really good news for Ray? EA now owns the Blitz franchise and as we all know EA also owns the Madden franchise which has a curse of it's own. If you don't believe there is a curse, just ask Maddens latest cover, Peyton Hillis!

Lets hope for Ray that Blitz won't have the same curse.

VGA: Diablo 3

This is some footage that all you Diablo fans have been craving for a really, really, really long fucking time now. The opening scene for Diablo 3 in all it's fucking glory!

During his acceptance speech for best video game character, The Joker, flashed a little something call "Batman: Arkham World". Now the man behind the face paint (Mark Hamill, AKA Luke Skywalker) has announced previously that he was done playing the Joker after Arkham City. Guess only time will tell right?

VGA: Alan Wake: American Nightmare

Apparently, the with the terrible sales the first Alan Wake game got because it went up against the likes of Red Dead Redemption and Need for Speed Hot Pursuit. It did however get a shit ton a reviews regardless of it's Terrence and Phillip voice syncing. This time around the American Nightmare will be coming to Xbox Live Arcade which should lower the cost and up the sales!

Darksiders 2 teaser

If you happen to DVR the VGA tonight, then you may have missed this little gem while fast fowarding through the commercials.

VGA: Rainbow Six: Patriots

Rainbow Six: Patriots seems to be taking this shit to a whole new level here! It appears that Ubisoft wants to really push the envelope in order to keep up with the Jones'. Who are the Jones' you ask? Call of Duty and Battlefield or course.

VGA: Command & Conquer: Generals 2

Bioware wasn't satisfied with just showing off some nutty Mass Effect 3 footage. They also thought it was a very good idea to show off some new Command & Conquer: Generals 2! I know there are a lot of you who are still not milking the fuck out of Star Craft 2 but this may freshen things up for you.

VGA: Mass Effect 3

Don't worry everyone. Shepard is here to save the fucking galaxy, again. Bioware has gave us something to drool over while we wait impatiently.

VGA: The Last of Us

The Last of Us is the next game from Naughty Dog. I know, Uncharted 3 just came out! They are taking us on their own little journey of survival after an out break. Its not that dark and drab look that we are used to. This game looks beautiful as well as dangerous.

Microsoft's Xbox Live phone application out now

Microsoft has released an application for your smart phone so you can keep track of everything Xbox 360, 'My Xbox Live'. I know, I know, there are a few apps that already do this, but this one does all of those things better.

Using their Windows phone interface, 'My Xbox Live' lets you watch the spotlight videos you would see on your regular dashboard at home. It lets you go through your friends lists so you can view their bios and compare games, there is a message area to send and receive messages.  And brand new to your home dashboard, beacon setting. This app will  also allow you to set beacons for games so your friends will know what game you are down to play and when you want to play it. And if you want to fuck around with your avatar you can do that as well.

You can check it out over at Apple here.

Ninja Gaiden 3 to frustrate players March 2012!

Ninja Gaiden fans, you should go out and buy a few extra controllers now because come this coming March, you are going to be breaking them in half! Team Ninja's Yosuke Hayashi let the news fly at an  event in San Francisco this afternoon that Ninja Gaiden 3 will be out sometime during March of 2012.

Also to bring in semi-casual players (people who don't want to get super pissed off) to the franchise by adding a 'Hero Mode' that will enable automatic blocking so the average player will be able to see what the end of a Ninja Gaiden game looks like. But for those of you who love to torment yourselves and have high blood pressure. Don't worry, this game is going to rape your mind!

Microsoft fucks up again!

You know how Microsoft always seems to fuck something up around Christmas or Easter. This year isn't any different. Today the new dashboard update for the Xbox 360 was supposed to go live in the morning sometime. But then we were informed my Major Nelson that it would be delayed a little bit due to some last minute problems.

That's all fine and good if they need to delay it to make sure it goes out seamlessly. Only problem is they maybe should have held it off another day or two. Once they started the role out this evening, people have been having connection issues just to realize that the update was available. Buuut...people have been getting error messages when they accept the update and then once they finally get the fucking thing, the connection issues continue. 

Good job Microsoft. You just had to take the Activision route and push out something that was broken.

Battlefield 3: Wake Island footage

Anyone who has played Battlefield before knows how good all of these old school/new school maps will be in the Back to Karkand DLC that dropped today for PS3 owners. Now, if you haven't played Battlefield until now, then you are in for some fucking fun! Check it out below.

And for those of you who have BF3 on Xbox 360 and PC, you can just sit back and drool while you wait for the DLC come your way next week.

Master Chief and Cortana getting "upgrades" for Halo 4

During an interview with 343 Industries' Halo director Frank O'Connor told CVG that Master Chief will have."some fairly radical modifications to his armour." He also went on to say that some of it will be artistic changes and some of the armour changes are due to the fact that Master Chief has been out in space for a while.

O'Connor went onto say that Master Chief wouldn't be the only one getting upgrades. Because her life span, Cortana was only supposed to last seven years. Adding she how taken in more information then any other AI ever made and which may cause some issues in Halo 4 and beyond.

Personally, I don't give a shit what Master Chief looks like just as long as it's nothing like the characters everyone has been seeing in those Saints Row: The Third commercials. I can't wait to be blasting little grunts and bitch smacking some fucking brutes!

Call of Duty: The Vet and the Noob, Trash talking

Activions seems to be getting their money's worth when they casted Sam Worthington and Jonah Hill for their "The Vet & the Noob" trailer. This latest entry just shows how Call of Duty noobs think and talk after they get just one kill!
