I told you guys I would post again soon. 🙂

Anyway, this week has been all about E3. From what I’ve saw and read, I’m pretty impressed with what’s coming out soon. So let’s get right into it.

First, let’s talk about game releases. The schedule for game releases looks INCREDIBLE. BioShock Infinite, Modern Warfare 3, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, Saints Row: The Third, Far Cry 3, Ghost Recon Future Solider, Battlefield 3, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, Driver San Francisco, Tomb Raider, Gears of War 3, Mass Effect 3, Hitman: Absolution, and of course, Halo 4. Just to name some. Naturally, all of these games look and sound amazing. I have a feeling that I’ll be completely broke by the end of 2012. If you haven’t seen any of these games (or even knew that they’re being released), here are the links:

In other news, you can download the Portal 2 soundtrack via the Official Portal 2 website for free. (Just click on “Official Portal 2 website”, which will then direct you there. Then click on ‘Download Volume I’). Additionally, you can download the individual tracks for your Android or iPhone by clicking the links underneath the tracks that say ‘Android’ or ‘iPhone’.
Also, Rockstar Games has released a free kindle version of L.A. Noire: The Collected Stories on Amazon here. Even if you don’t have a Kindle, you can still view it on your computer by selecting [Your Name]’s Kindle for PC.
Yeah, you’re welcome.

Speaking of L.A. Noire (which is an awesome game, if you haven’t checked it out), the Rockstar Pass for L.A. Noire only has a few days left to get current and future DLC. The cost is 800 MS Points/$9.99 and includes: The Badge Pursuit Challenge, Chicago Piano Gun, The Naked City Vice Case, A Slip of the Tongue Traffic Case, Three Suits, and two future DLC’s: Reefer Madness Vice Case (release: July 12) & Nicholson Electroplating(June 21) Arson Case. This offer is only available until June 14th. Then the price will go up to $12/960 MS Points.

Thanks for reading and keep on playing,

This week I was rather happy with the release of the Mafia II demo and the announcement that there will be a new installment in the BioShock series.

If you haven’t played the Mafia II demo, I would suggest getting it here for the PC. Alternatively, you can download it through XBL or PSN to your console. And why not ‘like’ Mafia II on Facebook, and pick up Mafia I while your at it.

Just scroll down a little and look to the right to see a little gray box that says “Download the Demo.”

I was in for a shock when I saw the new teaser for BioShock: Infinite, the newest title in the BioShock series. Apparently, it is going to take place in the sky, in a city called ‘Columbia,’ according to CVG. It is expected to be released in late 2012. Of course, I’ll keep everyone who visits up to date on everything BioShock: Infinite.

A little background on the story:

“You, playing as ex-private detective Booker DeWitt, are hired to track down a woman who disappeared during the Colombia incident. The girl, Elizabeth, holds a secret; she’s hugely powerful and lies at the center of whatever is going on aboard the floating city.”

For more on the story, go here.

A preview of Columbia.
