Title: Could be a good week of releases
Posted: June 27, 2010 (11:58 PM)
with Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4, Singularity and Transformers: War for Cybertron releasing this week on the PC besides on other platforms as well, this could be a decent week for PC releases

other than that Alcatraz, Arma II: Combined Operations and Rise of Flight: Iron Cross Edition are also coming out exclusively on the PC.....

so yeah could be a decent week for the PC after all.....

Posted: June 27, 2010 (10:50 AM)
what the!!!!!!!!!!!!!! now thats a huge difference in the ratings....IGN gave this game a 9.0 and Gamespot gave it just a 6.5????!!!!! usually ratings on IGN and Gamespot differ but that difference usually comes down to a 0.5 or 1.0.....so this one surprised me.....anyone here played this game yet????if yes then what did u think abt it????

Title: Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is now the highest grossing video game-based film of all time!!!!!!
Posted: June 23, 2010 (10:44 PM)
gamers everywhere rejoice..... from Gamespot.com "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, which is based on Ubisoft's 2003 game of the same name, The Sands of Time raked in over $213 million internationally, bringing the film's worldwide box office success to around $293 million. That figure makes the film the highest grossing video game-based movie of all time, passing the original Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, which racked up $274 million globally. The Sands of Time's budget is estimated to be in the area of $200 million, making a sequel seem very likely. "

so this is a good thing right????the sequel i mean or does it look like producer Jerry Bruckheimer might be pushing his luck too far?????

Posted: June 21, 2010 (10:36 PM)
now this is news i like....Microsoft has confirmed that there will also be a $199 Xbox 360 Slim coming this fall.....no details about the specs of this one have been given but im guessing it might have a smaller hard drive or no hard drive at all....personally i got no use for a 250 GB HDD so this is the one im gonna look out for.....

i just hope they fixed all the hardware issues with the Slim.....

Title: NFS: World and Transformers: War for Cybertron arrive tomorrow
Posted: June 20, 2010 (11:05 PM)
definitely excited about these 2....NFS World takes the Need for Speed franchise into the world of MMOs..... from Gamespot:

"The free version allows access to the game's open-world races, police pursuits, and character progression, though a cap for the latter is placed at level 10.

For those seeking a deeper experience, EA will also launch the online game alongside the Need for Speed World Starter Pack, which costs $20. Inside the digital wrapping are access to level 50, a Toyota Corolla AE86 vehicle exclusive to the pack, and $20 worth of SpeedBoost (NFS World's in-game currency).

some users have already rated the game (average comes to 7.8) but i dont mind since its only the free version i will be trying of this one.....

Transformers: War for Cybertron has also got me excited though i dont know why.....since i have no idea what this game is going to be like....i just know that its going to be an action/adventure game....heres hoping that this is a good one....

Title: wat ever happened to the RTS genre
Posted: June 20, 2010 (10:51 PM)
once upon a time u had a good RTS game coming out almost every month but now it seems that the RTS genre has died down.......the last couple of high-profile RTS games i.e. Command and Conquer 4 and Supreme Commander 2 were released way back in March and Starcraft II doesnt release till next month....July 27th to be exact.....i wish that more companies start making RTS games and also that Blizzard would make Warcraft IV......

Title: E3 over with and done...PC gaming needs focus!!!
Posted: June 19, 2010 (12:57 AM)
so E3 came and went......but since i dont own a console now it feels as if the show didnt connect with me coz E3 i think is becoming more and more console focused......sure there were PC games shown (mostly because games are becoming mutiplatform)and Civilization V has got me excited more than any other game but it would have been cool if there was a PC media briefing (is there something like that happening right now?) too where some of the 3rd party developers show off their games being released exclusively on the PC or also even if the releases are multiplatform.......

Title: Rage gets best overall game from IGN
Posted: June 17, 2010 (11:29 PM)
Rage the new IP from id Software that combines racing with FPS action won the best overall game of E3 award from IGN.......

if this is such a good game i wonder why it wasnt shown at any of the big 3's conferences when it is a multiplatform release......

i havent seen any footage of this game......might do so over the weekend....

Title: Kevin Butler: the star of Sony's Press Conference
Posted: June 17, 2010 (11:18 PM)
why was Sony's press conference 2 hours long while Nintendo's and Microsoft's was about 1 hour and 20 minutes or something????

anyways, the highlight of Sony's conference for me was Kevin Butler took the stage and added some real humor to the press briefings.....he took some jabs at both Nintendo and Microsoft which were quite funny.....

so check his segment out if u havent already....

Title: i stand corrected: Nintendo's conference was impressive but still populated with sequels
Posted: June 16, 2010 (03:21 PM)
still havent watched Sony's conference but did watch Nintendo's and i admit it was impressive but still i would like to point out that out of the 10 games that they showed MAJORITY were sequels or 're-imagining' of old franchises and not original IPs.....so i stand by my previous post that besides the 3DS Nintendo also built upon stuff already there......

Title: missed Nintendo's and Sony's press conferences but it feels as if i didnt miss much
Posted: June 15, 2010 (11:35 PM)
i missed both of the conferences yesterday but it seems (after reading the conference highlights) that i didnt miss much.....

like Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo just built upon the ideas they have been talking about for the past 1 year....

Sony also gave release dates for Gran Turismo (November 2,if im not wrong) to Killzone 3, Unchartered 3........ <----- thats me loosing interest and feeling a bit disappointed that E3 this year has been more about sequels than anything else.....

its gr8 that no new console was announced because i still want to buy a PS3 or Xbox 360...hopefully they wont do so for the next 5 years.....

Title: Criterion working on NFS:Hot Pursuit and Dead Space 2 dated
Posted: June 15, 2010 (03:00 AM)
turns out Criterion Games is working on the latest installment of the Need for Speed franchise 'taking it back to its roots'....they even named it Hot Pursuit AGAIN....i guess Criterion Games is 'taking it back to its roots' thing very seriously....

Dead Space 2 gets January 25th 2011 as the release date.....

Title: Xbox 360 slim unveiled and other moments from Microsoft's Press Conference
Posted: June 14, 2010 (11:01 PM)
it was a good thing that Microsoft's press conference got delayed by a good half hour which allowed me to catch the whole thing (almost)...missed about only 10 minutes of it.....the best news for me from the conference was the new slim 250 GB HDDD Xbox 360 for the same price i.e. $299 and being available from next week.....here's hoping that they fixed ALL issues with the new design so that i can be a console gamer once again.....plus in an Oprah Winfrey style move Microsoft gave each audience member a free slim Xbox 360....HOW I WISH I WAS THERE!!!!!!!!!!

they also showed Kinect(Project Natal's new official name)games out of which the most impressive was the Ferrari F450, Forza III demo.....that demo was AMAZING!!!!out of the other games they showed, Joy Ride (kart racing game)was one which looked weird because u move your hands to steer the vehicle and i guess the cars accelerate on their own......they also showed Kinect Sports that had some track&field events which looked tiring coz the players had to stand in one place and simulate running .....i dont know, would i want to do that after coming home from a 9 hour work day at the office???seems a lot of hard work.....Kinect will be sold for $149.....

games that Microsoft showed were no big surprises really....Gears of War III, Halo Reach, CoD:Black Ops etc.....the line-up had nothing which would make someone who isnt already an owner of an Xbox 360 buy one....Codename Kingdoms was a new IP (small trailer) that was shown from developers Crytek.....

and oh yeah ESPN and Microsoft have signed a deal to bring live events on to the Xbox 360 free for Gold Members of Xbox Live......im not a big sports fan so this wasnt such a big deal.....

all in all an ok conference....nothing that might make u go 'WHOA'....the media briefing just built on all the ideas that Microsoft has been talking about for the past 1 year.....
