Overhyped and over-rated

When a video game is marketed, pushed and hyped as the biggest title of the year, always has the opportunity to heighten the anticipation and thrill of the release.

Return of the Kings

With Duke Nukem Forever’s impeding release in May, it renders thoughts of the real action heroes Nukem is modelled after and how often they are swarmed by women. Video games wouldn’t be what they are today without the tough, aggressive beefcake, welding multiple weapons and breaking hearts. Duke Nukem, a favourite among his fans, is a chauvinistic, hyper masculine tough guy with a penitence for vi...

Gears of War 3 beta starts April 18th for Bulletstorm owners; April 25th for Gamestop pre-order

It looks like purchasers of Bulletstorm’s Epic Edition are feeling less and less special every day because it was just announced by Epic and GameStop themselves that if you pre-order the game from their company you will be able to gain access to the Gears of War 3 beta on April 25th.

Remember a few weeks back when we mentioned that other games from Epic’s library wouldn’t be able to unlock special equipment due to restraints on Microsoft’s part. But it appears that problem has been overcome. More on that later however as there will be a Golden Retro Lancer available through unlock only by playing the Gears of War 3 Beta for a long enough period of time. Appar...
