    Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer Officially Confirmed

    October 11th, 2011

    I don’t know about you guys, but yesterday when I heard that Mass Effect 3 was officially going to have Multiplayer, I wasn’t very happy. After much debating with Alex, I made the decision to withhold my opinions until all the information is in.

    As of a couple of hours ago, the details surrounding the Multiplayer have been released.  Bioware has officially confirmed that Mass Effect 3 will have an online multi-player component. Here is the posting in all it’s “glory”.

    4 player co-op multiplayer
    Join your friends in the all-out galactic war to take Earth back. The universe of Mass Effect expands with the addition of new co-op multiplayer missions, playable over Xbox Live, PSN and PC internet. Players can choose from a variety of classes and races, form an elite Special Forces squad, and combine their weapons, powers and abilities to devastating effect as they fight together to liberate key territories from enemy control. Success in multi-player will have a direct impact on the outcome of the single player campaign, giving players an alternative method of achieving ultimate victory against the greatest threat mankind – and the entire galaxy – has ever faced.

    Mass Effect 3: Galaxy at War
    As a bonus to the campaign, BioWare is introducing the Mass Effect 3: Galaxy at War system, a new way for players to manage and experience the galactic war from multiple fronts, including a new 4-player co-op mode. The key to saving the galaxy is the “Galactic Readiness” level, measured by Commander Shepard’s ability to apply every possible asset – people, weapons, resources, armies, fleets – in the final battle against the Reapers. Players can impact their game’s Galactic Readiness level in multiple ways via the Mass Effect 3: Galaxy at War system, including multiplayer. Other platforms and interfaces will be announced in the coming months. It is important to note that the system is entirely optional and just another way players can have control over your game experience – it is still possible to achieve the optimal, complete ending of the game in Mass Effect 3 through single-player alone.


    Why include 4 player Co-op multiplayer in Mass Effect 3?

    • Being able to explore and fight alongside your friends in the Mass Effect universe has always been something we thought would be fun and compelling, and many players have asked for it for a long time as well. Mass Effect 3 is the best place for us to introduce multiplayer through co-op because of the premise of the game – all out galactic war.

    Why only 4 player co-op? What not a versus mode?

    • We have always maintained that we would only add multiplayer into the Mass Effect series if it made sense and did not compromise the power of the single player campaign. Fighting together against a common threat was the multiplayer experience that made the most sense for Mass Effect 3. The way we have designed co-op as a wayto take control of key conflict zones in the galaxy is a natural extension of the premise of Mass Effect 3.

    Why did you decide not to include it as a part of the main campaign?

    • Our priority and focus with Mass Effect 3 has and always will be to deliver a complete and satisfying single player experience.

    Does the addition of co-op multiplayer missions impact the scope or quality of the single-player experience?

    • No. A dedicated team from our recently formed BioWare Montreal studio has been focused on creating the multiplayer game features while the main game continued to be developed by the team in BioWare Edmonton. Both teams are integrated under the same leadership group that produced Mass Effect 1 and 2, led by Casey Hudson. BioWare remains dedicated to delivering one of the most amazing single-player campaigns gamers have ever experienced.

    How did developing multiplayer impact the single player game?

    • BioWare is dedicated and focused on delivering an engaging, fun, and action-packed experience for Mass Effect 3, one that lives up the BioWare standard. To reach that level of quality, last year BioWare opened a studio in Montreal that is home to designers, programmers, engineers, and other developers. Both studios work together as partners, lead by the core Mass Effect team, unified in a single vision. Under the direction of Casey Hudson and other team veterans, both studios make contributions to both the single player and multiplayer modes in Mass Effect 3. Rest assured that no compromises were made to either of these modes in the development of Mass Effect 3.

    Which characters can I play in co-op multiplayer? Can I play as Commander Shepard?

    • Commander Shepard’s part in the war will take place in the single-player campaign, as will that of other beloved characters in the franchise such as Garrus, Ashley, and Liara…these characters do not appear in the multiplayer missions. In multiplayer, players will create custom characters to fight on different and unique fronts in the war. This will include the ability to play as favorites like Turians, Krogans, Asari and more… each with their own unique set of abilities.

    What if I don’t like multiplayer – will my experience be negatively impacted?

    • Mass Effect 3 is a complete, standalone game that will deliver a satisfying story experience, even if you choose not to try multiplayer. The Mass Effect 3: Galaxy at War system and all of the individual components are meant to complement that amazing game and can be enjoyed on their own or as part of the Galaxy at War experience.

    What if I am not good at / do not like multiplayer? Will my readiness rating go down?

    • ME3 is a story about a war against overwhelming force where the most you can hope for us survival. The more you do to fight that war, the more you can change that story into a more optimistic one. You can reach the highest levels of success in the single player experience alone, but Galaxy at War gives you alternative ways to get there. It’s about choice, and allowing players to find their own ways to stay immersed in the Mass Effect universe.

    Will you be adding any additional maps or modes through DLC?

    • We can’t comment on specifics right now, but can confirm that we are planning on having DLC for Mass Effect 3.

    Do save games from ME1 or ME2 impact the co-op multiplayer missions?

    • No.

    Do characters level up in co-op multiplayer? What is the progression system?

    • Character progression, weapon upgrading and leveling up is present in co-op. We’ll release more information on this topic in the months leading up to launch.

    Is there more info about the other platforms of Mass Effect 3: Galaxy at War?

    • We are not going into details about the other components of the Galaxy at War at this time except to say we are designing each to make sense for that platform. Each component will be able to affect a player’s “Galactic Readiness” level in a different way. Again, participation in any or all ME3:GaW elements is entirely optional.

    So yeah,  there it is in all its glory. What do you think of the addition of multiplayer? Have your fears (if any), been eased? Let us know!

    Happy 15th Birthday Tomb Raider!

    October 4th, 2011

    Hard to believe it’s been 15 years since Tomb Raider introduced us to the ass kicking female heroine Lara Croft. Today, Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics announced that they are celebrating 15 years of Tomb Raider during the month of October. During the month, a series of events will be held to mark the celebration. The events start with a digital art exhibition, a signing by artists at New York Comic Con on October 14, and finishing with an opportunity to own some limited edition goodies.

    Throughout Tomb Raiders 15 years, the franchise has sold over 35 million copies of the game worldwide and grossing over $300 million at the box office worldwide for the films.

    Kicking off the month long celebration is the digital arts exhibition. According to Square Enix:

    Crystal Dynamics will be playing curator to a unique digital art exhibition, commissioning eight original pieces of art to be created by a selection of esteemed artists and released during the month of October. The pieces will be created to showcase the new vision for Lara Croft in the eagerly anticipated new TOMB RAIDER game, whilst embracing the individual style of each of the selected artists.

    The exhibition began today with a piece created by Andy Park, artist on the original Tomb Raider comic book series. (I still have my Tomb Raider #1 on my shelf. What an awesome series!) The month ends with a featured piece by Toby Gard, creator of the Tomb Raider series.

    All art can be viewed over the course of the month at in collaboration with

    As a finale to the event, a limited selection of T-shirts and posters will be available for purchase from The Nerd Machine’s website with a portion of the proceeds to benefit Child’s Play charity

    Ubisoft’s ROCKSMITH At PAX 2011

    September 14th, 2011

    Is it possible to get as excited about a game as I am? Ever since I had the chance to check out Rocksmith at the Ubisoft event a couple a months ago, I’ve been frothing at the mouth. The anticipation is killing me!  Especially since it’s been my dream to learn how to play the guitar but I’m too poor to take lessons

    According to the newest trailer:

    PAX attendees had the opportunity to rock out to Rocksmith, the first and only video game that allows players to plug in any real guitar into an Xbox 360®, PlayStation®3 or Windows PC to play a sizeable library of songs from the latest hits to classic rock songs. The game features songs from classic rock bands to current artists, including “House of the Rising Sun” by The Animals, “Next Girl” by The Black Keys and “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” by The Rolling Stones. Rocksmith adapts to the player’s skill level from novices who have never picked up a guitar to the most experienced shredder.


    Is it October yet?

    Uncharted Stories in the Sand: Sandart Is Beyond Awesome

    September 11th, 2011

    Do you guys remember a couple of years ago when this YouTube clip was going around?

    Well, it was done by this woman:Natalya Netselya a a Russian artist specializing in sand “painting”. Her work is amazing. When you get a chance, you should totally look up her stuff. It really is breathtaking and some of it will probably bring a tear to your eye.

    Anyway, in honor of the upcoming release of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe commissioned Natalya Netselya, to interpret some iconic images from the series through the medium of sand.

    Here they are in all their glory!

    Another one!

    She even did one for Uncharted 2!

    Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim – Let’s Be Vampires!

    September 11th, 2011

    So, its official!  Bethesda has finally confirmed that ‘’ will give players the choice to become a vampire, and detailed the new gameplay mechanics that will be introduced.

    Director Todd Howard has given the exclusive to G4TV. He goes on to explain how the you’ll become a vampire and what new gameplay mechanics and leveling with be introduced to you as a result of you being a glittery vampire.

    “We are revealing that you can play a vampire in the game. So there are vampires, and some people have seen them and run into them. But you can contract that disease, and if you wait long enough you’ll become a vampire, and that’s a whole other mode of playing the game.

    “There are various levels of being a vampire, the sun will affect you more the more powerful you get, and you can sort of control your vampirism by feeding on people when they’re sleeping. You can sort of, you know, live the life as a vampire in Skyrim, and kill dragons as a vampire.”

    It’s great that Skyrim is expanding on this feature. Being a Vampire in Oblivion seemed cool but it just seemed like it was an add on much like being poisoned. It would be cool if your character’s fighting abilities and features change as a result of your vampire infection. It’s also good to know that it’s a choice and not something they’re going to force on the player at some point.

    What do you think? Are you stoked for some Vampire action or are you just not interested?

    The director of the upcoming FINAL FANTASY XIII-2, Motomu Toriyama, recently had a Q&A that revealed some more information on gameplay. The Historia Crux enables the player to travel through time to affect the past, present and future.

    Here’s the whole Q&A for your reading enjoyment!

    Could you give us an overview of what the Historia Crux is and how it works?

    The Historia Crux is a new gameplay system that functions like a compass for time travel. As the
    portal which allows the player to select areas and time periods to go to, it functions a bit like a home
    menu and is at the heart of the story and gameplay progression of FINAL FANTASY XIII-2. The player
    can enjoy traveling through time by freely choosing between all the time-space locations where
    gates have been opened up. Although these locations proceed onwards into the future, you also
    have the option of rewinding time so players are able to experience many different historical

    What specific fan feedback are you trying to respond to with the Historia Crux?

    The original game, FINAL FANTASY XIII, was primarily story-driven and progressed in a very linear
    manner. For the sequel, FINAL FANTASY XIII-2, we are going for a more player-driven concept, so this
    time around the gameplay and story itself will alter to fit the player’s choices. You will be able to
    freely come and go between all the areas; the game will provide not just simple environmental
    exploration, but also a multi-layered exploration of history through the Historia Crux.

    How does the Historia Crux affect the gameplay in FINAL FANTASY XIII-2?

    The Historia Crux branches off into multiple different routes depending on the player’s choices. You
    will be able to take a detour into areas that have branched off of the route you have taken, perform
    side missions and turn back time in each of the areas to experiment with all possibilities. It is of
    course also possible to progress simply following the main story, like in the original FINAL FANTASY
    XIII. The flow of areas accessible via Historia Crux has been structured so that all of the player’s
    actions and decisions will influence the gameplay. Casual players will be able to use the Historia Crux
    in a similar manner to browsing a favorite website—picking and choosing between all the different
    links available. It also contains elements aimed at more dedicated gamers, allowing for more
    challenging play by encouraging exploration of all the different times and places, and to find
    additional secrets including the multiple endings that are hidden in the different routes.

    Many fans have been longing for an explorable World Map for a while. Do you feel that the Historia
    Crux is a good alternative?

    The Historia Crux divides the world into multiple layers, overlapping with the different time periods
    that can be played with the feeling of jumping freely around several world maps. This is a completely
    new system and experience, so it cannot be unconditionally compared with other options; however,
    when considering the key concept of “player freedom,” I believe it to be an optimal system for
    combining the best parts of open-world style games with the story-driven aspects of FINAL FANTASY
    XIII. Players can adjust their play style to either delve deeply into everything available and be
    engrossed, or just make more straightforward choices while going along their adventure.

    Is it possible to share more information on how the Historia Crux allows for sidequests and hidden
    objects to feature in the game?

    In the original game, the sidequests were only unlocked in the second half of the story on Gran Pulse,
    but in the sequel we have put in many different sidequests right from the start. Due to the overwhelming demand from players of the original, we have also included many strong and colorful mini-games, a tradition of the FINAL FANTASY series. You will be able to return to any of the times and places whenever you like from the Historia Crux, so it is completely up to the player in what way they choose to play these.

    Is it possible to change events that happen in the future depending on your actions in the past?

    Depending on the player’s actions, new turning points to new futures will be available, and these will
    certainly form the basis for the multiple endings.

    This is the first time travel has featured so prominently in a FINAL FANTASY game, is this something
    you’d like to explore more in future games?

    For the FINAL FANTASY series, each game has its own new game system, so it is not as if we are
    intending on making time travel key to all future installments. We want fans to look forward to each
    FINAL FANTASY having its own unique system. For FINAL FANTASY XIII-2, we are experimenting with
    carrying out repeated large-scale user tests to reflect the opinions of users in the game itself. We
    really have received a lot of feedback about the game, but among the voices, there are those who
    say it reminds them of the classic RPG, CHRONO TRIGGER. For FINAL FANTASY XIII-2, we are aiming
    to make time travel a major thematic direction, and be able to express this on high-end game

    Will we be meeting older/younger versions of FINAL FANTASY XIII characters as we travel through

    The main characters from the original FINAL FANTASY XIII will show up in this journey through time,
    so we will see them in many different situations and guises. I am sure that the fans of the original
    will be looking forward to seeing them again and how they have changed over the years!

    Is it possible to return to time periods you’ve already visited and replay them as if it’s your first time
    you have visited the area?

    It will be possible to wind back time in each of the areas you visit and replay them. Character levels
    and equipment etc. will be carried over so it will be possible to play the game as if doing a “New
    Game+” for each of the areas at different times. It will be possible to play through from the start
    using your leveled up characters, once you have completed the game. We have taken care to put a
    number of elements into the game system to make replays more exciting and user-friendly.

    Dead Island PC Patch Notes

    September 7th, 2011

    There have been a lot of issues with Dead Island and for those of you that are playing it on PC, hope is on the way!

    First, for those of you who downloaded the incorrect version of the game, the correct version of the title is now available on Steam and fans are able to download it now.

    Second, the day 1 patch notes in their entirety are below.  Please note that the lists circulating around the internet in the past day were not final – so you may want to update your information with what we have here.  Also note that this update may cause incompatibilities between the incorrect version of Dead Island that was released and the fixed version and cause a wipe on saved games. We tried every avenue possible in order to avoid fans having to wipe their saved games and it’s important that fans are made aware of this ASAP.  However, we have a solution to help regain some quest progress:  When the game opens, select New Game -> Select the same character as you were using before, and then there will be an  option for “Chapter Select” which will allow the player to jump to the last chapter they were playing in.

    Third, Deep Silver plans to announce a “make up” to fans who were affected by the day 1 PC issues, stay tuned in coming days for those details as internal discussions are ongoing on our end.

    Fourth, the Bloodbath DLC is still on schedule as planned – fans who preordered the title will still receive the Bloodbath DLC when it launches (date TBA shortly!) as stated previously.

    Fifth, The Ripper activation bug which will not load as a result of the version update and this will be fixed in the next game update, coming soon.

Leading the zombies are a group of zombie rock and roll lords who do battle with Juliet.  The game is complete madness, and I love it.  Lollipop Chainsaw will be here in the U.S. on XBox and PS3 within the next year.

    Check out the trailer below!


    The game is scheduled to release on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 in 2012.

Twisted Pixel has really gone the extra mile to pack the game with content, game modes, and sooo many things to do.

    New Releases: 8/1 – 8/6

    August 1st, 2011

    Seems to be a light week for releases. PC gamers get a chance to finally play LIMBO on their PCs.  My biggest recommendation is the awesome 2D side-scrolling game, Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet. It seems it was only yesterday that Xboxs’ Summer of Arcade started. We’ve already had the awesome action RPG Bastion and the God stratagedy sim game From Dust. Looking at the screenshots, you can’t help but see the influences of Limbo, Shadow Complex, Castlevania and Metroid.  You play a tiny spaceship trying to survive a huge army of shadowy monsters and obstacles.

    In-Game Auction House for ‘Diablo 3′ Revealed

    August 1st, 2011

    You guys know that we’re all a eagerly awaiting the release of Diablo III. So we were doubly stoked when we Blizzard announced today that Diablo III will feature an in-game auction house that will allow players to sell their wares and earn some cash in the process.

    There are some rules and regulations that come with selling your stuff on Diablo III, the most important being that Blizzard will tax the earnings before it can be deposited into your own bank account.  The move is pretty cool because it opens the possibility of making some real cash while you game and removing the perception that you’re wasting your time while you game!  “See mom! I made $1.10 this month on Diablo III!”  whoo hoo!

    When the item is sold at the auction house, Blizzard collects amount from the sale, and then it is up to the gamer to decide if they want to transfer those funds into their account or have the funds deposited into their bank account. Just know if you deposit it to your bank account, you’ll incur more fees.Blizzard states that they don’t expect items sold at the auction houses will sell for more that $10 bucks. Also, don’t go expecting to make selling your wares on Diablo III your full time job— it aint gonna happen. Personally I think the service was created as a way to get rid of all the crap that you’ve accumulated while you played the game.

    Just to be clear, if you don’t want to use the “real life money” auction house, there will be a gold auction house that will be the in game currency.  I actually appreciate this because I don’t think I would use the “real money” AH.

    So what do you think?  Think this will ruin the game for players and open up Diablo III to RMTs/Gold sellers? Do you think other companies should incorporate features like this in their games?  Let us know!

    Rabbids LOVE Captain America

    July 22nd, 2011


    Ohhhh you crazy Rabbids. Always getting into things and causing crazy mayhem! Back in the day they would focus on Rayman and his world. Lately they’ve shifted their attention to Earth and we’re not safe! No one is safe!!

    In this trailer to commemorate the release of Captain America: The First Avenger, the Rabbids quickly realize that being Captain America is not as easy as it looks.


    Here was their attempt at being wizards to celebrate the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 2.

    Rabbids: Alive and Kicking looks like it will have all the zaniess of Rayman: Raving Rabbids. According to the website:

    The Rabbids have already invaded the past, the world, your TV, and the moon, and now they are set to invade your own home, coming out from the floor and interacting with you through ridiculous and humorous physical challenges. This year with the augmented reality, watch as the Rabbids mess with your life in front of your very eyes!

    Um… yes.  I think it’s a perfect excuse to get together with a few friends, maybe have a few drinks (ok, a lot), and get to ravin’! Raving Rabbids: Alive & Kicking  attacks your face and Kinect on November 8th!

    Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath | Under The Radar

    June 23rd, 2011

    We’ve got another game that went “Under The Radar“. A fantastic game named Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath. You NEED to play this game!!


    Stranger’s Wrath, tells the tale of a bounty hunter, who while catching criminals for moolah, is attempting to conceal a secret that if revealed, could endanger his life.

    The first full-on action title in the series, mixing 3rd and 1st person combat / shooter gameplay, the game was set in the Wild West of Oddworld, far from the industrial lands that housed Abe and Munch’s tales.

    The game adapted Oddworld’s unique Gamespeak feature, using it more as a soft hint system to give the game wide player accessibility without ‘dumbing the game down’. The game also debuted a ‘live ammo‘ concept where the ammunition was made of living creatures, and had to be caught for the player to use.

    Engineer Profession Just Announced For Guild Wars 2

    May 19th, 2011

    Very cool looking profession has just been announced for Guild Wars 2

    The Engineer is a master of the mechanical and uses explosives, gadgets, alchemy and a wide range of deployable devices to control the battlefield. Much like the Elementalist, the Engineer uses only a single weapon set at time, but enhances that set by equipping special kits that provide additional weapons and skills for both supportive and offensive skill sets. Whether by firing elixirs to allies with an Elixir Gun, or laying mines and turrets for unsuspecting foes, the Engineer is never without options as long as a tool kit is near.

    The Engineer employs a wide range of mechanical know-how:

    • Backpack and Weapon Kits: When activated, these kits replace the engineer’s current weapon skill set with all new offensive tech. Lob smoke, concussion and fire bombs with the bomb backpack, or dish out massive area damage by utilizing the flamethrower skills activated by using the flamethrower kit.
    • Turrets: By launching and moving around various types of turrets, the engineer controls and defends the battlefield. The engineer can place, pick up and move turrets during battle, and can even use the individual overdrive mode of each turret for extra devastation.
    • Tool Belt: An engineer would be lost without a Tool Belt, as it increases the effectiveness and functionality of the engineer’s skills. Adding an additional set of skills above the weapon bar, the tool adds an extra function to turrets, mines, grenades and more.

    Engineers use their tools, mechanical knowledge and a dose of alchemy to provide offensive strength and defensive support to their teammates. With a touch of steampunk flair, the Engineer profession brings the mechanics of battle to Guild Wars 2.

    Check out the video below for a demo of the profession!

    Sony’s Response to the U.S. House of Representatives

    May 4th, 2011

    Things haven’t been going pretty well for Sony these past couple of weeks to say the least. Gamers are still waiting for the Playstation Network to come back up and even though Sony says it will be up soon, we’re not sure when PSN will be up and running.

    Today, Kazuo Hirai, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Sony, submitted written answers to questions posed by the Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing and Trade of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce. The House of Representatives held a hearing in Washington, DC on “The Threat of Data Theft to American Consumers.”

    Sony submitted written answers to questions posed by the subcommittee about the “large-scale, criminal cyber-attack” they have experienced. (Here is the formal letter if you wanted to read it for yourself (click here)

    Sony told the subcommittee that they followed four key principles in regards to responding to the attack:

      1. Act with care and caution.
      2. Provide relevant information to the public when it has been verified.
      3. Take responsibility for our obligations to our customers.
      4. Work with law enforcement authorities.

    They also informed the subcommittee of the following:

      1. Sony has been the victim of a very carefully planned, very professional, highly sophisticated criminal cyber attack.
      2. We discovered that the intruders had planted a file on one of our Sony Online Entertainment servers named “Anonymous” with the words “We are Legion.”
      3. By April 25, forensic teams were able to confirm the scope of the personal data they believed had been taken, and could not rule out whether credit card information had been accessed. On April 26, Sony notified customers of those facts.
      4. As of today, the major credit card companies have not reported any fraudulent transactions that they believe are the direct result of this cyber attack.
      5. Protecting individuals’ personal data is the highest priority and ensuring that the Internet can be made secure for commerce is also essential. Worldwide, countries and businesses will have to come together to ensure the safety of commerce over the Internet and find ways to combat cybercrime and cyber terrorism.
      6. They are taking a number of steps to prevent future breaches, including enhanced levels of data protection and encryption; enhanced ability to detect software intrusions, unauthorized access and unusual activity patterns; additional firewalls; establishment of a new data center in an undisclosed location with increased security; and the naming of a new Chief Information Security Officer.

    Sony then went on to tell the subcommittee about their  intent to offer complimentary identity theft protection to U.S. account holders and detailed the Welcome Back program that includes free downloads, 30 days of free membership in the PlayStation Plus premium subscription service; 30 days of free service for Music Unlimited subscribers; and extending PlayStation Plus and Music Unlimited subscriptions for the number of days services were unavailable.

    What do you guys think of the the Sony attacks?  Does this statement restore a bit a faith in Sony?  Let us know what you think.

    The Darkness II Gets a Release Date

    May 4th, 2011

    2K Games announced today that The Darkness II, the sequel, The Darkness, now has a release date!

    The Darkness II will be available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on October 4, 2011 in North America and October 7, 2011 internationally.

    If you missed it, we covered the preview of The Darkness II at Pax East this year– check it out here!



    Inspired by the supernatural horror comic book series created by Top Cow, The Darkness II breaks from the sea of conventional first-person shooters (FPS), and takes players down a brutal and personal path as Jackie Estacado, wielder of Darkness – an ancient and ruthless force of chaos and destruction.

    The Darkness II uses  Quad-Wielding gameplay. Empowering players to slash, grab, and throw objects and enemies using Demon Arms, while simultaneously firing two weapons.



    According to the press release

    [ The Darkness II is] layered with intricate uses of dark versus light gameplay, the game engulfs players in a whole other level of sophisticated combat. Combined with a complex and twisted storyline, and stylistic violence that is visualized through a hand-painted graphic noir technique, The Darkness II harkens back to its roots of the comic book origins for fans and newcomers alike.

    It’s been two years since Jackie Estacado, now the Don of the Estacado crime family, used Darkness to kill the men responsible for his girlfriend’s murder. Jackie continues to have haunting visions of his beloved Jenny since her death. He’s tried to cope by bottling up his supernatural power, and now Darkness wants out. A sudden, unprovoked attack on Jackie’s life heralds the start of a full-scale mob war, which has clearly been orchestrated by some outside force. The botched attempt opens the door for Darkness to reemerge, and sets Jackie on a journey to hell and worse, as he unravels the mystery behind the attack and the motivations of Darkness itself.

    Here is the new trailer for your enjoyment:

    If you haven’t checked out The Darkness yet —  Buy it here for US and Here for UK .

    PRE-ORDER  The Darkness II —  Here for US and, for some reason we don’t have a link for UK folks. We’ll update that when it becomes available.

    Mortal Kombat: Legacy – Episode 1! Keep ’em coming!

    April 15th, 2011

    Last year, a short film/trailer titled “Mortal Kombat: Rebirth” created a huge storm on the internet hinting at a reboot of the Mortal Kombat film Franchise. No one knew if this would be a movie or  if it was fan made, all we knew is that we liked it and that people wanted MORE. The director was Kevin Tancharoen, a fan of the MK series. He made the video in the hope of generating interest in a reboot of the Mortal Kombat film franchise.

    What made this video so interesting was that Kevin pitched his film on the internet— this is not very common at all because you normally need a crap load of money to get a project started. What ended up happening was a huge fury of buzz was generated about Rebirth ranging from drooling intense fan worship to deep hatred of the video. Whatever the reaction, the higher ups took notice. And instead of a movie a web series was created.  Personally, I think a web series is called “Mortal Kombat; Legacy” brought to us by

    Personally I think a web series is a better direction. It gives us an opportunity to really get into the nitty gritty of the story and fully develop characters and story lines. A movie would be too brief and would, I feel, force the director to have to appeal to the masses and dumb down / generalize the story– which seems to be what happens with every video game movie.

    After watching the video I have to say that I’m totally loving it. I want more. I also love seeing my favorite Battlestar Galactica stars working.

    What do you guys think? You digging the new video? Hate it with every fiber or your being?  Let us know!

    ArenaNet Announces New Guild War 2 Profession: Commando

    April 1st, 2011


    ArenaNet has released their April Fools joke of the day! Why ArenaNet! Why must you play with my heart?

    AHH! The trickey!

    According to the “press release” here is the breakdown of the Commando and his abilities.


    A commando can use ten different weapons to bring the pain on the battlefield. The commando weapons are:

    • Two-Handed: assault rifle, grenade launcher, shotgun, shoulder-fired rocket, flamethrower
    • Main Hand: sub-machine gun, pistol, scepter
    • Off Hand: sub-machine gun, pistol, knife, walkie-talkie

    A commando can easily switch between his two active weapon sets as needed, but swapping ranged weapons triggers a brief cooldown during which the commando shouts, “I’M OUT!” or “RELOADING!”

    The commando has a long reach. Commando weapons don’t have set ranges, they just use line of sight. While other professions need to run to different locations on the map, the commando can set up a bunker to snipe at ettins, drakes, and other unsuspecting tangos at map-wide range.

    Because of their military training, when they have a knife equipped, commandos gain an automatic bonus to movement speed. They also have the downed state ability to crawl closer to allies who can revive them.

    The Commando leaves no man behind, as the APC, tank, jeep and helicopter can also carry allied passengers.  Not only will this increase the team’s firepower, but passengers will acquire new skills based on their profession and position in the vehicle.

    More so than any profession, the Commando has a mastery of weapons to go along with a wide range of lethal skills.  Whether up close and personal or sniping tangos from afar, the Commando lives by one motto, “If it bleeds, I can kill it.

    We’re pretty sure it’s an April Fools joke, actually we’re 99{33432aa694e5f3438fe8434693c65104c8003966d5d6736d07d2c878ff0de51a} sure it is. However, because we’re such a nice people, we like to give people the benefit of the doubt!  Why AreaNet!!  Why do you do this to us???

    Beyond Good & Evil HD: “2nd Times A Charm” – Review

    March 23rd, 2011

    We, at Gamer Reaction love Beyond Good & Evil. Like, really love this game. So much that we dedicated a segment to it:

    But anyway, that’s not what we’re talking about here. We’re talking about the HD remastering of the award-winning action-adventure game from Ubisoft. We already know that Beyond Good & Evil HD will be awesome. We know that already. So the point of this article is simply to try and convert you non-believers that BG&E is awesome and you need to buy it– now. OBEY OR PERISH!

    I remembered going to my local Gamestop and trying to find a game that would fill in the dry spell before the big game that I was waiting for. I picked it up, asked the dude at the counter, and he said had no knowlege of the game. I happened to have Alex with me who, at the time, was also loyal employee of Gamestop and he didn’t know anything about it either. The cover attracted me and so I purchased it.

    I fell in love with it when I heard the music. It’s one of the few games that Alex actually sat down and watched me play– and Alex DOES NOT like watching other people play video games. The story and characters were awesome. I loved everything about this game.

    So imagine my surprise when I read that the game was getting a touch up in graphics and music AND it was being re-released for X-Box Live. I was so excited because I had lost my copy at some point moving from Manhattan to Queens several years ago. This remastering is a perfect opportunity for me to re-play one of my favorite games.

    You play as Jade, she’s an investigative reporter whose trying to expose a terrible government conspiracy. Jade is armed with a camera, a dai-jo staff, and unparalleled braver. It’s your job to save your planet and its inhabitants. She sneaks and fights and occasionally has a friend help her out.  Jade is joined by Pey’j, her uncle – a giant, talking man-pig with a gruff — but lovable, southern accent.

    What makes Beyond Good and Evil a memorable game is how fleshed out the secondary characters are. The world is fully imagined. You really feel like you’ve been picked up and placed in a world that has a full history with people who have had relationships and have known each other all their lives. Jade is one of the few female video game characters that I can think of who is sexy; not because of her looks but because of her actions. Seriously, this girl kicks butt on so many levels. She’s smart, brave, clever, maternal, and she looks like a real person instead of the normal big breasted, skinny, female protagonists that we’re used to.

    The gameplay is pretty cool. You sneak your way around warehouses and inside caves. You’ll shimmy around ledges, jump through lazers, avoid shooting robots, push crates to get to a different parts of the level. The game is not without its flaws, of course: the camera is still a bit of a pain but isn’t impossible to get thorough. Un-skippable cut-scenes can be annoying sometimes since all you want to do is go back to fighting the big boss and move on.

    One of the coolest parts of the game (much like Bioshock and Dead Rising), is the picture taking ability. The world of Beyond Good & Evil is full of cute critters and scary monsters that you have to take pictures of. Every picture you snap earns you money for upgrades. I personally get a huge rush when a monster appears and I have to find the perfect angle to get a good picture of it before it shoots you with killer radioactive balls.

    Long story short (because I feel like I’ve gushed about this game waaay too much), this is a great game. You should totally get it.  What are you waiting for!  Get it now! If enough people buy this game we may get a sequel.

    Beyond Good and Evil HD currently  available on Xbox Live and will be coming to the PSN in May.

    Sexy Call of Juarez: The Cartel Trailer

    March 3rd, 2011


    Call of Juarez: The Cartel has a deep and gritty storyline that begins with a fictional drug cartel bombing a U.S. law enforcement agency, devastating the building and killing hundreds of people. The attack is a surprise, leading the U.S. to believe that cartel members had somehow infiltrated federal agencies. In a last-ditch effort, the U.S. puts together a special task force to hunt down and stop the drug cartel. The task force consists of:
    – Kim Evans, a gang-affiliated street kid-turned-FBI agent
    – Eddie Guerra, a DEA agent with a chronic gambling habit
    – Ben McCall, a brutal LAPD detective and descendant of Ray McCall from the original Call of Juarez

    As the task force trio searches for the head of the cartel, they’re confronted with a variety of challenges that take them on a journey from Los Angeles, California, through Arizona and New Mexico to Juarez, Mexico. To complicate things further, Kim, Eddie and Ben each have their own personal challenges and demons to face, which makes for a complex and high-adrenaline gaming experience driven by a rich storyline evident throughout the Call of Juarez franchise.

    Sounds like a a pretty intense game. Especially with all the crazy stuff happening in real like Juarez. It’s crazy. Google it.

    Think you’ll be picking it up?

    L.A. Noire – “The Naked City”

    March 3rd, 2011

    This solidifies that we WANT this game. NAO!

    If you pre-order L.A. Noire, you get “The Naked City” DLC as a bonus.

    “The Naked City”

    In the Vice desk case “The Naked City” (available as a pre-order bonus through GameStop in the U.S. and Canada, and through Game in the UK), Cole Phelps investigates the apparent suicide of a stunning fashion model. When the young beauty is tragically found naked in her bathroom amidst a pool of pills, the most likely conclusion is that she’s taken her own life. But what about those bruises? And her taste for luxury beyond her means? It soon becomes apparent that this young lady wasn’t quite the ingénue some believed her to be.

    What do you think? Will you be pre-ordering for Gamestop to get this DLC?

    L.A. Noire – “Orientation” Trailer

    February 10th, 2011

    We are incredibly excited for L.A. Noire. Yesterday, Rockstar released an official gameplay video showcasing the game’s graphics and the amazing, facial MotionScan technology.

    According to the press release:

    “Orientation” is an overview of the game’s core mechanics from searching for clues, to the fundamentals of witness interrogation, and classic action including brawling and shootouts. Using all in-game footage, this first gameplay video in the series explains how your detective skills, intuition and cunning have the power to make or break each case.

    Watch the trailer and prepare to be amazed.

    How does Rockstar knock it outta the park? Is it wrong that I’m so stoked for this game? I’m scared that I may be hyping this game up too much for myself.

    Does this gameplay footage increase your excitement for L.A. Noire?

    zomigosh! Fan-made Sonic 2 HD Logo Looks Sexy

    January 4th, 2011

    Scouring the internets, I found this pretty little logo for Sonic: The Hedgehog 2 — in HD. I had to blink a couple of times because I thought it was a Sega release.

    Nope. Not so much.

    S2HD is a fan made endeavor that again proves that Sega can sometimes be a little out of touch with their community. Folks have been clamoring for an updated, totally remade version Sonic 2 on the Genesis and the dudes over at Sonic Retro have got you covered.

    The game hasn’t been released yet as of now there is a teaser site with a countdown on it. Leading to 11 Days from now so, December 16th.

    What can we expect? Who knows, but these guys have been working on the game for like, 3 years now.

    You can follow their story right here.  These guys are passionate, you have to respect that. I know I’m looking forward to checking out the game when it’s released and Gamer Reaction will be right there to cover it!

    “Fling”: Stick-on Joystick Making Premiere at CES

    January 4th, 2011

    For those of you with an iPad, touch screen playing is pretty cool. You have to admit though, there is a small part of you that misses solid buttons and joysticks. I personally know some folks who say that the only reason they wouldn’t buy an iPad for gaming, is the lack of actual buttons and joysticks. Ten One Design is looking to sway those of you who’ve been on the fence when it comes to iOS gaming.

    The “Fling” is essentially a little nub that sticks to the iPad’s screen over the directional pad of any applicable game to deliver “ultimate control and superb response for full gaming immersion“.

    Interesting eh?

    Ten One Design promises that the design of the Fling creates resistance and won’t easily come off your iPad. They also promise that the Fling won’t block your screen due to its transparency.

    Check out the video at the bottom and see it in action.

    What do you think? The Fling is looking to get more people to play games on the iPad. Would you want to carry the Fling around? Is it totally worth it? Do you think developers will have to start thinking about where they place the controls of their games? Will I ever stop asking so many questions?

    The Fling can be pre-ordered now at for $24.95 and will begin shipping at the end of January.

    CTA Digital and ProdigyX team up for CES

    December 30th, 2010

    CTA Digital is a company that we’ve had our eye on for some time now. They design & manufacture accessories for the Wii, DS, DSi, PS3, Xbox and iPhone. This year they are heading over to the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada and looking to really kick some butt in the Playstation Move peripheral department.

    They’ll be hanging out all weekend with Robert Paz (aka ProdigyX). He’ll be challenging folks to round after round of games while playing this baby that CTA is revealing at CES this year:

    An Assault Rifle Controller for PS3 and PS Move with a unique dual-action trigger it works as a stand alone PS3 controller for games like Call of Duty: Black Ops, as well as with the Move attachment for games like MAG and the upcoming KillZone3. ProdigyX is a multi-platform pro gamer sensation with his own online TV show as well.

    Other than the Assault Rifle for PS3 and PS Move, CTA will be showcasing other upcoming products that the audience can try out.  Among these, a few that stand out are:

    ·    The PlayStation Move 5-in-1 Charging Station. It’s a functional  and sexy way of charging two Dual Shock 3 Controllers and two Move Motion Controllers, while stylishly arranging them

    around a vertical stand for the PS3 Slim console itself.

    ·  Something that certainly had us squealing was the Wii Inflatable Racing Kart. C laimed to be the “Ultimate Wii Accessory” by Gizmodo and other top sites, it was also dubbed the “best thing at E3″.

    ·   I’m terrible at golf. So if you’re looking to improve that very important swing, CTA has got you covered. Golf Simulation Set, estimated to be launched later in 2011. This includes a life-size golf club and a golf ball that swings around when hit and returns to position for another go.

    · Bowling Ball accessory for PlayStation Move. After the success of the Wii Bowling Ball last year, we CTA didn’t want to leave Move fans out in the cold.


    The PlayStation Racing Wheel — this product works with both the PS3 Move Motion Controller as well as a standard DualShock 3 controller.  It has a stand that allows gamers to setup their own table-mounted racing cockpit.  The YouTube video describing it is here. It made me giggle teehee.

    Here is a video of the assault rifle in action.   Looks fun eh?

    Kinect + World Of Warcraft = Awesome!

    December 30th, 2010

    This could possibly make me want to play WoW.

    A group of students in the University of Southern California have created this awesome software that uses the Kinect to… play WoW. So get this, they’ve HACKED a console peripheral and made it work on the PC.  I mean, how AWESOME is that?

    Why is this important you ask?  Well, the software they created maps the skeletal movements of humans and maps them to keyboard functions. The software is still in its test phase, but if they can really make it flawless that means that we may eventually be able to work our computers with gestures!! And, more importantly, this software may be able to help people with limited movement in the future as well.

    If you’re interested in experimenting with the software or contribute to it, here is a link.

    Its hope is to stay an open source platform.

    Dianna, I still don’t get why this is a big deal? Well, first of all, 2 words: Minority Report.   Second of all, it’s the Microsoft Kinect. Microsoft! What do they do? Computers!! I’m sure Microsoft is probably pooping themselves with the possibilities.

    Check out the video and let us know what you think!

    First Trailer For Journey… wow.

    December 10th, 2010

    The first time I heard about Journey was from it’s mention at E3 a couple of months ago. thatgamecompany, best known for flOw and Flower, has rather announced another Playstation Network exclusive named: Journey. Journey follows the concept of thatgamecompany’s mantra: simple gameplay and easy controls.

    What makes Journey different from flOw and Flower is thatgamecompany is promising an online experience. Players will encounter strangers and experience the vastness of the world. The creators wanted to create a sci-fi/fantasy where the player would feel almost overwhelmed and powerless with enemies and the world around them. Their intention is to create a game that will create memories and discussions among the players.

    ..what?   I don’t think I’ve ever heard a game described to me like that and I’m so incredibly intrigued.  There is still almost no information about this game. All that we know is the trailer that was released including some screen shots.

    What do you think?  Are you as intrigued as I am?

    [UPDATED] The New Lara Croft

    December 6th, 2010

    According to Game Informer:

    To build an entirely fresh Lara – a culturally relevant hero worth of the attention that once came so effortlessly – they must break her first. In this new adventure – simply titled Tomb Raider – a younger and inexperienced Lara Croft must endure both physical and emotional trauma to survive.

    I’ll be the first to admit that I inwardly groaned when I heard another Tomb Raider was in the horizon. Now.. I’m pretty stoked.

    What do you guys think? If anything, it’s a hot picture no?

    [UPDATE] New pic was just released. FULL BODY PICTURE FTW!!


    Inception Movie — Great Deal (US and UK)

    December 4th, 2010

    When I saw Inception, my mind was sufficiently blown. It was gripping, emotional, terrifying, exhilarating and a crap load of other smart sounding words.


    Check out our review of Inception if you haven’t already. We loved the movie.. a lot.

    I had a blast and I honestly couldn’t wait to add that movie to my collection. The movie is released on Blu-Ray and DVD on Tuesday and imagine my surprise when I saw that Amazon and Amazon UK were BOTH having an awesome deal.

    On Amazon and Amazon UK you can get all three versions of Inception, DVD, Blu-Ray, AND Digital Copy for $18.00 or £14.99 — that’s 50{33432aa694e5f3438fe8434693c65104c8003966d5d6736d07d2c878ff0de51a} OFF.

    Netflix Launches A New Streaming Plan! US Only (Sorry UK)

    November 22nd, 2010

    I don’t know about you, but I watch Netflix. A lot. My Netflix Instant Watch on my XBox 360 account is a whore that we, at Gamer Reaction happily ride… all the time.  OOOOHHHH has she been ridden hard.

    So imagine my surprise when I saw that Netflix annouced that they were launching a streaming only account. This is awesome and I love this.  Why?  Because this comic (which coincidentally came out today), pretty much sums up my Netflix experience:

    I don’t even remember what movie I have stored in a plastic bag somewhere. THAT’S how long I haven’t looked at the DVDs I took out.

    Netflix has officially announced a $7.99 streaming-only plan for the US. If you’re like some folks I know who prefer Netflix will be increasing the service by one dollar to all their DVD plans.  Blu-Ray Prices remain the same.

    What do you think US folks?  Are you going to keep your DVD subscription or go full streaming?

    Does this affirm that DVDs and Blu-Rays are getting left behind for streaming content?

    What are your thoughts?

    Dead Space 2 trailer — Never sleep again.

    November 15th, 2010

    Honestly, I watched this trailer like, 3 times.  The first time was in the dark and I nearly shit myself with fear. The second was with the lights on sort of covering my eyes and the third was that morning with the sun shining in through my window.

    EA’s Dead Space was the first game that LITERALLY made me scream till I was hoarse. I was so scared and I shaking and I bloody loved it. Now, Dead Space 2 is coming early next year and I am so excited to get the shit scared out of me a second time.

    Poor Isaac. In the first game he had the pleasure of seeing enough death and destruction to slowly drive a man insane.

    In the second game Isaac wakes up in a hospital to find that he hasn’t escaped the horrors of his previous adventure. Uggg….

    In the aptly named “Lullaby Trailer” poor Isaac again, fights for his life while scary crap comes at him at all angels. Never sleep again guys

    Dead Space 2 is due out on January 25, 2011 for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

    Pics of Spiderman: Turn off the Dark

    November 15th, 2010

    A couple of months ago, I was getting ready for work and I flipped on the old TV.  It just happened to be that the first channel that popped up was “Good Morning, America” and they were doing feature of the new musical that’s coming to Broadway Spiderman: Turn off the DarkNot gonna lie, I actually dug some of the music.  I mean, it is is being done by the dudes from U2.

    Anyway, just recently, some pics were released courtesy of the New York Post and Vogue and I’m little embarrassed.  They look TERRIBLE! I mean, who did the photoshop on these pics? And why am I suddenly embarrassed for saying that I liked the music.    Anywho:

    Here they are for your viewing pleasure:

    WHAT is going on here? Green Goblin looks sooo bored, and the photoshopping… *shudder*. Why is Spiderman riding on his back? Where are they going?!

    Who the hell is this?! I’m gonna assume they created this female character so she can belt the shit outta her songs. Her costume is FIERCE though…

    Poor Carnage.. you look like a a bad cosplayer…

    Should I Be Excited About This..?

    September 22nd, 2010

    I mean, I don’t remember an ad for the XBox 360 Pink Controller(was there?). I just saw it at a Gamestop one day and purchased it as an act of brazen rebellion for Alex’s rude “awwwwwww look at the pretty PINK CONTROLLER” remarks.

    This ad is wrong. Just wrong. When I got it in my in-box, I stared at it for several minutes and got increasingly uncomfortable as the seconds passed. Why did this make me uncomfortable? Well, I’ll tell ye:

    1. The first thing that came to mind when I saw this ad was a tampon commercial. That’s gross. That’s NOT what I want to be thinking about when I see this ad. That’s NOT what I want to be thinking about when I’m playing video games! Much LESS holding a controller.
    2. A question that came to mind: Has handing a pink controller to your little girl become a right of passage? on her 13th Birthday you give your girl a romance novel,  a box of tissues, a PS3 Pink controller, and a slap on the ass and tell her “now, you are a woman”.
    3. This perpetuates the stereotype that girls like pink and girls like blue. That’s not true. I’ve seen some men wear pink and they look downright sexy.

    I feel dirty and I feel like women have been set back a couple of years.  And what the hell was Sony thinking? “Make it PINK and the girls will go GAGA over it.  HEY! maybe we’ll get some more gamers now that the controller is PINK!” .

    Am I offended?  Ehhhh..  Am I amused? Yeah,very.    It’s 2010 Sony.  I thought we were beyond this.  What do you guys think?  Am I wrong in this? Am I being dramatic?  Let’s talk!


    Scott Pilgrim vs The World Awesomeness!

    August 3rd, 2010

    I hope you guys are ready for this jelly, because I’m about to BOMBARD you with awesome little tidbits about SPvsTW.  “Why are you doing this Dianna?” You may ask.  There’s a lot of misinformation out there and I felt like it was my duty as resident comic book nerd to set the record STRAIGHT!

    *pushes up her glasses*

    Are you ready?  Let’s GO~~~~!!!!

    Here are a couple of fun facts about the new Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Video Game coming August 10th for PSN and August 25th for Xbox Live.

    • Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is based on the Graphic Novel of the same name by Brian Lee O’Mally. It’s an awesome read for those of you who haven’t gotten a chance to check it out.

    • There is a movie based on the Graphic Novel that is coming out August 14th of the same title (notice a trend here?) starring Michael Cera:
    • The Art Designer of the game is named Paul Robertson. His art is so… AWESOME.  He’s known for a video that he did about 4 years ago named: Pirate Baby’s Cabana Battle Street Fight. People were so impressed by the art style they SWORE it looked like a video game. Nope.. he’s just that awesome.  Check it out :

    and video #2

    You can find more cool stuff about him HERE and HERE.

    • Paul Robertson’s also designed the new Anamanaguchi album cover. If you don’t know Anamanaguchi, they are a “Chiptune” band that makes music that sounds like it’s from an old school NES system.  I urge you to CLICK HERE or HERE for more info.
    • Anamanaguchi is ALSO composing the music to the game:  you can listen to some samples HERE

    As you can see, there are a lot of heavy hitters behind this fanchise. I’m happy to see folks getting the credit and the recognition they deserve. Honestly, the game itself may be the best Movie to Game port to come out in a while. Playing it was a blast and I can’t wait to get my hands on the full game — and the movie when they come out in a couple of weeks.

    Jeeze.. did I miss anything?  Did your head explode from too much awesome?? Let me know! Put you’re two cents in!  Are you excited for the movie as am I?

    Secret Files: Tunguska coming to the Wii and DS

    June 2nd, 2010

    We’re big fans of point and click adventures and this game looks so cool we definitely want to check out! A rep from Southpeak Games describes the game in awesome fashion:

    It’s June, 1908. You are a Russian, doing normal Russian things northwest of Lake Baikal, in the middle of Siberia. As you and your comrades are… I don’t know, bolshevizing, maybe?… you see a large column of light as bright as the sun appear nearby. Then, a HUEG LIEK EKSBAWKS ‘SPLOSION happens and knocks you on your back, where you sustain a massive and highly improbable head injury and die, thus removing you from this narrative. What happened? Well, you’ll never know, ’cause you’re dead. But other people will research this event for decades. Eventually, some will say that it was an air burst from a comet or meteoroid entering the atmosphere. But others say that it was something else. Something more… sinister.

    Flash forward 100 years. Nina Kalenkov is your average woman with your average brilliant scientist father. When he goes missing, Nina finds that her father focused much of his energy on researching the Tunguska Event. What happened to him? What relevance does the Tunguska Event hold? WHAT WILL YOU DO? This is where the REAL story begins…

    Squeeee!!!! Doesn’t that sound neat??  I sure as hell am intrigued.

    Secret Files: Tunguska will be released for the Nintendo DS and Wii at the end of June for the AWESOME price of $19.99!!!

    Keep checking in and we’ll have more info for the game as the release date gets closer.

    Article – Dianna Clearly Wears The Grlpants

    April 13th, 2010

    Hey guys,

    A couple of months ago, Empire State Gamers interviewed me for their ESG Community page. Here is how they discribe it:

    On ESG ( we have a section that is totally devoted to the NY Gamer. Not just the average NY Gamer but the type of NY Gamer that has personal projects of their own (blog, clothing line, gamer group, etc.). The category “Gamers” is placed under “NY’s Finest” which obviously speaks for itself. This is an easy way to get your name out there while connecting with the NY gamer community.

    Pretty cool huh?

    Anyway, thought I would post this up on the site since this was before we changed to this awesome new site format!
