Category: Quick Posts


Update: May 24th

I have about 5 minutes to post this, so I’ll make it quick.
Expect to see some updates coming your way, I know there hasn’t been anything posted in a while, but that should all change soon, as I’ll have more free time on my hands. Lately, I’ve been playing L.A. Noire, which is an excellent game and you should go get a copy if you haven’t already.

That’s all for now.

Thanks for reading,

So, because I haven’t featured any news in a while (thanks to a busy schedule) I’m going to give you guys  a quick update on something that I’m personally pissed off by this week.

Apparently, Dead Rising 2 has been pushed forward from it’s August release date for the US to September 28th.

Great. I’m not sure exactly what’s going on with these guys, whether they’re doing super improvements on the game or what, but all I know is that I have waited for this for a while and I would like to have a date set in stone for this game. I expect to be very impressed after waiting all this time. The thing is, it’s not a very compelling game, but it’s just fun. Well, at least Dead Rising 1 was. I mean, who doesn’t want to roam around in a mall for 72 hours with anything and everything as your weapon?

Let’s not disappoint, Capcom. The pressure is on.

More Modern Warfare 2 details have been released:

“Carnival– A huge map set in an amusement park featuring all new art work and level design. The daytime map will feature wide open areas and several highpoints that will make it ideal for snipers and long range battles. The area will include a roller coaster, a fun house, and bumper cars.

Fuel– Based on the oil refinery level form the campaign, this map will have two distinct areas. One will be more of an open area for ranged battles, and the other a side is a warehouse with corridors for close combat.

Trailer Park– This map is based on the Boneyard level from the campaign. The area will be condensed, with corridors that become a maze, and sections that can easily become ambush points. The level is designed for close to mid range combat, as well as ambushes and traps.

Strike and Vacant– As with the “Stimulus Package”, the “Resurgence Package” will bring two maps over from the original Modern Warfare. Strike (pictured above) is a city block set in the Middle East, with a large courtyard, a street in the center, several open buildings and a pathway to flank opponents. Vacant is a map with an outside that features several metal containers, while the inside is a warehouse with two large rooms and a small courtyard in the center. Both maps should receive some visual tweaks.”

The Resurgence Package will cost the same as the Stimulus Package: $14.99.

We’re also adding a new page called “¡Muy Interesante!” (or very interesting! for those of you who don’t speak Spanish) which is basically going to be a page dedicated to interesting stories about video games out there on the web.
