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.

MW2 Update: http://www.digitaltrends.com/gaming/modern-warfare-2s-new-map-pack-detailed/?news=123

I’d like to apologize for not posting over the past few days, but I’ve been rather busy. So let’s get this started shall we?

First off,  a BioShock 2 DLC will be released for PC this Tuesday. It’s the same as the 360 version, the Rapture Metro Map Pack, 2 Characters, and the new Kill ‘Em Kindly Multiplayer Mode (for free).

Speaking of BioShock, Irrational Games has released the original pitch for BioShock 1. Take a look at it here. It’s pretty interesting to see what BioShock could have been and what it evolved into.

GameStop has done fairly well for itself, it’s first quarter sales rose 5.1% from one year ago to 2.08 billion dollars. While everyone else is doing not so good, GameStop is showing some impressive growth, although the executives would like to see something even better. Go figure.

One of my top anticipated games of the year, Mafia 2, will feature really impressive graphics for the PC: “The integration of PhysX and NVIDIA APEX technology, including the APEX Clothing and Particle modules, enable the city and personalities of Empire Bay to truly come alive on Windows PC. The NVIDIA APEX Clothing module allows for more dynamic movement in clothing, making in-game characters even more realistic and reactive to environmental conditions.” I honestly can not wait for this game. But for right now, I’m stuck playing the original Mafia.
