March 31, Bungie's last day with Halo

On March 31 of this year Bungie will officially be out of the Halo business. So after that day, don't go checking bungie.net to check out your Halo stats because they won't be up to date. You are going to need to use Halo Waypoint for up to date stats. Along with the stats, 343 Studios will also be storing any user generated material and the Bunige Pro service. No word if they will change the name of that service though.

If you don't know how to get to Waypoint just go to halo.xbox.com

Some EA servers will be down for maintenance

EA announced today that at 12:00 A.M. until 3:00 A.M. PST a certain number of servers will be down for scheduled maintenance. Yeah, just three hours, not nearly as bad as  the shit Sony pulls. However, if you are playing SWTOR and of course you are, the maintenance may be a bit longer for you guys. I know, I know, you just want to get your Jedi on. With those few extra down hours, take a shower, eat some food that didn't come from a delivery guy or even better use that time to take a nap!

Aliens: Colonial Marines Cinematic Trailer

Who here is ready to kill some fucking aliens?! I know I am damn it. Give me a M41A1 Pulse Rifle and let me go to town on those heartless pieces of shit! What? It's not real? Oh, well Gearbox could have fooled me. Check out the latest trailer for the recently delayed Aliens: Colonial Marines. This game was supposed to release Spring of 2012 but now is pushed back to Fall of 2012. I can't complain, if they think they need that type to fix problems or tweat small issues, then go for it.

Mass Effect 3 multiplayer video!

After all the back and forth from BioWare about whether or not Mass Effect 3 would have multiplayer, we finally got a direct answer that indeed there will be multiplayer. So now we get to feast our eyes on the first trailer of that multiplayer element and man does it look shitasticly awesome! A ton more action and explosions with objective based game modes. Take a look below!

Darksiders 2, Death is really old!

Teasers and more teasers. THQ again puts out another teaser trailer for Darksiders 2, their sequel up to Darksiders which got lots of praise but was pushed to out of the way by that huge blockbuster game Mass Effect 2.

 It's nice to get to see that they are trying to hype this Darksiders 2 up this much, but I think I speak for everyone here, give us some fucking game play already! Even if it’s only a few seconds.

I Am Alive trailer

Are you tired of playing survival games in a post-apocalyptic world? Well, Ubisoft sure hopes you aren't! I Am Alive might just be one of the most real feeling survival games put out in a while. The world has limited ammo, which will force players to avoid confrontation as much as possible. The game will also have more diverse A.I. Meaning that not everyone in the game will be bad guys out to kill you. Sometimes there will be people who are more scared of you then you are of them. Look for it to hit Xbox Live Acrade and PlayStation Network on March 7th.

EA spent close to $200 million on SWTOR!

Electronic Arts apparently thinks that Star Wars: The Old Republic might be a big game. That's why they spent around $200 million developing it to try and take down, or at very little take a nice fat chunk out of WOW. The narrative alone is said to be 1,000 pages and there was up to 400 people at times working on the development team!

So EA is hoping and praying that the "force" is with them as they try to take down the Empire.

Resident Evil mother fucking 6!

I hope all of you who were a tad bit disappointed with RE5 are willing to forgive and forget. Really forget. That's because Capcom let the cat out of the bag earlier today, announcing Resident Evil 6, a trailer for Resident Evil 6 and a release date for Resident Evil 6! I know that's a major information fucking overload!

From the looks of the video, it seem that this may be the game that all of us RE fans where hoping RE5 was going to be. More action, more action..oh, and the possibility of shooting a gun while walking! The only thing that we can really speculate, is that this game just might be balls shitting, crazy good!

Oh yeah. I did forget one small detail. The release date is November 20, 2012 for Xbox 360 and PS3! PC will be announced at a different time. Let's hope it doesn't get shit on with a for sure Call of Duty game coming out around that time.

Make sure to actually "play" the Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning demo to get "all" the ME3 goodies!

If you are a huge Mass Effect fan and want the crazy fucking awesome armour and gun shown above, all you have to do is download and play the demo for Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning that released two days ago. I know, I know, this news is soooo two days ago. But, most people just started the game up and got their armour and shut it down. Shame on those who did because not only is this game pretty good, if you play out the full 45 minute exploration phase you will also receive notice that you will be getting the above mentioned rifle as well!

So get your ass back on that demo, give it a good try and who knows, you might end up like the game as well as getting that bad ass rifle too!

PlayStation Network down again tomorrow

Sony just gave us a heads up. Tomorrow PSN will down for scheduled maintenance from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. PST. My only question is, if the maintenance is scheduled why not start the fucking maintenance at like 3 in the morning when there are less people affected?

Time for all you Xbox 360 fanboys to start rubbing it in with, "that's why we pay $50 a year." Oh wait, some of you do pay that money for PSN. Sorry PlayStation Plus members, you just got fucked! Pull out those dusty Xbox 360's out if you got them.

Do you have the same problem I have? Sitting at home playing Mortal Kombat day in and day out but when your girl friend or wife drag you out shopping you have to leave Raiden and company at home? Those days will soon be over. Some time this spring, (not a launch title) you will be able to withstand all of those times sitting around the changing rooms at your local department stores. Mortal Kombat is coming to the PlayStation Vita. It appears from the box art that you will be getting all of the DLC released for the game as well as that awesome PS3 exclusive Kratos!

Ninja Gaiden 3 collector's edition revealed

Want some more crappy plastic figurines that can collect dust and chase off any chance of pussy? If so, you are in luck because Ninja Gaiden 3 has dumb ass statue of Ryu Hayabusa and just some random dude that he is going to fuck up. Along with that there is the game's soundtrack and some art book (only like two fucking people in the world care about an art book). The only thing that comes as any use at all is the download voucher for a four-character demo of Dead or Alive 5.

If for some reason you are still sold on picking up this waste of cash, the only place to pick it up is at GameStop. Yeah, I don't know why they would do something that fucking dumb. But whatever maybe it will stop you from buying it on March 23!

First MW 3 Elite DLC hitting Jan. 24 on Xbox 360

That promised DLC every month for nine months starts this month for all you Call of Duty Elite members out there. You are getting two multiplayer maps Piazza and Liberation in just two weeks time on the 24th. No time when the PS3 guys are going to get theirs but my guess it will be in the first few weeks of February because non-Elite members will be able to purchase these maps sometime in March.

Let's just hope those folks who don't have elite don't have to pay the normal running DLC cost of $15 that Activision slaps on it.

Xbox 360 to get News Corp apps in 2012

News Corp is developing an app for the Xbox 360 dashboard that will bring news and content from the Wall Street Journal, Fox News and IGN. The IGN thing is pretty cool seeing as they already have some of their videos on the dashboard but doesn't really have a place to call home. So this will give IGN it's own little corner.

But the Wall Street Journal? I can personally guarantee that the Wall Street Journal app will be the least used ever! Who the fuck wants to read about financial bullshit when all we really want to do is jump on our Xbox 360 and play a game or watch a movie so we can get away from the stress of making or losing money!

Gran Turismo 5 XL Edition announced

Gran Turismo 5 XL Edition for PS3

Gran Turismo 5 is planning to squeeze some extra cash out of people who put it off the first time around by offering it up for 40 bucks with a $20 voucher for DLC. It also comes with this reversible inside coversheet but who the fuck really cares about that? It's cool and all, but not something I would necessarily be making a selling point. But it will be out in as little as 11 days and for those who don't want to count. January 17th.

LEGO Batman 2 announced

Warner Brothers Interactive, along with TT Games announced today that there will indeed be more batclaw swinging and more batarangs breaking apart LEGO bad guys! But it won't just be Batman and Robin taking down Gotham's crazies. They are adding other DC characters as well.

LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes will also the likes of Superman, Wonder Woman,  and the Green Lantern all trying to keep the Joker and Lex Luthor among other DC bad guys from taking over Gotham.

I know it's LEGO's but you do have to admit, LEGO Batman was a really fun game and I'm sure everyone of us has played with LEGO's. I was really excited about this till I found out about adding other DC characters to the mix. They tried the same thing with the comic books and those sucked so how is this really going to turn out?
