Games have been amazing this year. Developers are finally figuring out how to push this generation’s consoles to their limit. There have been so many amazing titles this year, that many gamers like myself were forced to skip well reviewed games in order to have a bit a of a life outside of gaming (just a bit.. sigh). So why is 2011 going to destroy you? Here is a list month by month of some of the games on the horizon. Sit back, relax, and get your I-Vs ready.
Zombies – A lot of you are “over the zombie thing”. Well this game is all about zombies. Horse zombies, Mexican zombies, nunn zombies, dog zombies, fat zombies, kid zombies, grizzly bear zombies and maybe even sasquatch zombies. If you hate zombies, you may hate this game.
What are you thankful for this holiday season? As I write this my family is sitting in the living room enjoying the misadventures of Scott Pilgrim as he battles to win Ramona’s heart. Hopefully watching Scott Pilgrim on Thanksgiving becomes a new family tradition.
Its on. Steam is having another weekend sale, similar to last holiday season. A few games go on sale each day, usually one or two are too good to pass up. New this year are deals on multi packs. For…
Why I won’t be returning: In all honesty it felt like sitting down with an old girlfriend for a cup of coffee. You sit across from each other and and have that moment when you slowly realize why you’re not still together. All of her quirks and faults that you once found endearing are now just annoying as hell. You may always love aspects of her, but you now fully realize her time is totally up… just like WOW.
I quit playing WOW ages ago, but something I read recently sparked my interest. For one week everyone that had a WOW account at some point can come back to the game for FREE. That’s right, no WOW subscription fee for an entire week. Why are they doing this you ask? Well, Blizzard is blowing up the world. When the servers go up today, Deathwing the dragon will have decimated Azeroth. The World of Warcraft will never be the same.
I hopped on Gears with my good friend Derek who is also a Gears fanatic. Let’s just say he knows how to wield his lancer…. Of all my friends that play Gears, Derek is also the most capable player. I figured he and I would be able to handle anything those ladies at EPIC could throw at us. We were vets, like Marcus and Dom.
After a week with Kinect, I still find myself playing Kinect Adventures. Not because its a stellar title with a great story arc, rather primarily because there are some easy achievements out there in a game in a game that I essentially got for free. I’m also off my couch and moving around.
After Resident Evil 3 I didn’t see Jill again for a while. It was almost as if she said, “Hey Ash, we need to take a break”, this made me quite sad. Sure, she popped up in Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 and in numerous comics and remakes, but I wantedto know more about Jill damn it.
That’s right, rockstar is releasing the album on red vinyl. Hipster gamers unite in this pseudo vintage awesomeness.
CODBLOPS isn’t a new STD from the jungles of the Amazon, although it sure sounds like it. CODBLOPS is actually a rather awkward acronym for: Call of Duty Black Ops. This afternoon I had the opportunity to really sit down with CODBLOPS and give multiplayer a try. (Click for More)
Seems like we just can't get enough of Mass Effect around these parts. Just learned on Joystiq.com that Bioware is teasing new content to be revealed at the upcoming Spike Video Game Awards. Doing things as nerdy as releasing QR…
