B3gad! Trail3r For Mod3rn Warfar3 3.

Following a massive online leak earlier this month which revealed pretty much every detail about the third installment of the Modern Warfare franchise comes the first official trailer for the game.

You know when a company really want to hype up a project when they include a sinister klaxon as part of the soundtrack.

This game appears to take place around the globe with inner-city warfare being fought on the streets of New York, London, Paris and Berlin in what appears to be an attempt to make the game bigger than before. So much so that the scenes in what appears to be the Hudson River, crowded with submarines and warships, looks like the bath tub of an 8 year-old with ADHD.

Second Dead Island Trailer Is A Hoot!

http://www.g4tv.com/lv3/52969

A few months back the Internet was a buzz with the release of a video game trailer for Dead Island, which featured the fate of an unknown family at the hands of a zombie horde, only told in reverse. Confused? See it HERE.

Now game developers Deep Silver have released a second trailer for their much anticipated horror survival title and just like it’s predecessor it too tries to play your cynical gaming heart strings like a violin. Maybe it’s just us but this one feels like Lost: The Zombie Years.

Free Games For PS3 Users…And More.

Gaming website Games Radar have published a comprehensive list of all the goodies European PS3 users can expect to recieve as part of an apology package put together by Sony.

*spits lollipop out and claps hands like excited schoolgirl*

Following the recent chaos surrounding the Playstation Network, which was hacked by an anonymous source and was completely disabled for 24 days preventing users from playing games online and purchasing extras, Sony will be offering gamers throughout Europe of the following:

Two PS3 games from the following list:

LittleBigPlanet
Infamous
Wipeout HD/Fury
Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty
Dead Nation

Or for those with PSP accounts, you will also be eligible to download two PSP games from the following list:

LittleBigPlanet PSP
ModNation PSP
Pursuit Force
Killzone Liberation

These games will be available from the Playstation Store as soon as it’s back up and running. As well as some free games PS3 users will also get 30 days free PlayStation Plus membership for non PS Plus subscribers. Existing PlayStation Plus subscribers will be given 60 days free subscription. For existing Music Unlimited subscribers, you will be given 30 days free subscription and Sony is working on a welcome back offer in PlayStation Home, (do people actually still use Home?).

You’ll have to claim your free content within 30 days of the store going back online. Of course the US package differs a little and there is still no word on how PS3 owners in Asia will be compensated.

Duke Nukem Has Real Turd Enertia!

Taking toilet humour to a whole new level first person shooter  Duke Nukem Forever, which will be released in June of this year, now has playable feces.

As you’ll see from the footage above players can get the Duke to fish out some dookies from toilet bowls and throw them at walls, characters, enemies and possibly even fans, much like a grand version of a dirty protest.

This latest addition to the game’s proceedings will no doubt garner more outrage from tabloid journalists as last month it was revealed that the game would also feature  a  ‘Capture the Babe‘ mode where players have to slap women on the buttocks while abducting them.

Avast! Zip-lines In New Call Of Duty DLC.

It’s that time again when gaming companies start to turn the vice and squeeze as much money out of your wallet as possible. The first downloadable map pack for last year’s highly successful first person shooter Call Of Duty: Black Ops is gearing up for release on February 1st. It will probably mark the first of three pieces of downloadable content for the game and just like before they’ve included some tempting new qualities which they hope will hook you into buying.

Avast! Rockstar’s LA Noire Trailer.

Following on from their highly successful Western themed sand box game Red Dead Redemption, gaming giants Rockstar have proudly unveiled the first official trailer to their highly anticipated new title LA Noire. Set in the city of Los Angeles in the 1940s , drawing obvious inspiration from the likes of LA Confidential, Chinatown and other film noir from the same era, the game is centred around a young detective and his efforts to crack a series of mysterious murders. The game was announced over six years ago and fans have been in a state of anxious anticipation since then. Obviously, with all of their titles, it will be a well researched game giving players that specific feel of authenticity Rockstar are known for.

One thing we did notice was how the lead character looks uncannily like actor Aaron Staton, whose most famous role to date is that of Ken Cosgrove in the excellent 50s drama series Mad Men. What do you think?

Now With Added Zombie Action

Gaming giants Rockstar released, what has to be in our own humble opinion, the greatest single western themed game there has ever been. We’ve been addicted to it since it’s release earlier this year and yes we have also been sucked into paying a little extra for the down loadable content, but boy has it been worth it. Hours upon hours spent riding through sun parched landscapes, rounding up cattle, shooting our way out of stand-offs and hunting grizzlies. But now it seems Rockstar have taken a gamble with their third and final piece of DLC for the game, a departure from their previous content which stayed true to giving the player an authentic taste of the wild west. Undead Nightmare, which will be released on Oct 26th, is an expansion on the single player campaign of the game and features zombies. Although this sounds initially like a sell out and pandering to the on going pop culture obsession with the undead, judging by the official trailer above, (zombie bears, anyone?) it looks like Rockstar know what they are doing. Was there ever any doubt?
