Left 4 Dead Survivors to Fans: “Did you miss us?”

December 14, 2009

One of the biggest questions when Left 4 Dead 2 came out was, “Where are the other survivors?” Alright, maybe it wasn’t the biggest question, but it was asked…a lot! Well Valve plans to answer that question this Spring.

December 13, 2009

Seriously! Go look! After a long 3 month downtime, the free rental site Demonoid.com is back up. Their main page says they are running a test script to see how things work, but the downloads are working.

Borderlands 2: Borderworlds?

December 4, 2009

Borderlands was a freaking awesome game. So awesome that Gearbox has said they are totally doing a sequel! Destructoid posted yesterday that the Borderlands sequel may be titled Borderworlds.

This confuses me. The planet in BL was called Pandora. It was used as a prison planet cause it was the harshest planet to live on, and it had mining opportunities, plus a mythical vault that was said to be full of goodies! So will there be an introduction of new planets to the Borderlands universe? Will we be traveling between them, or will they just stick us on one the whole time? Only time will tell…or maybe Gearbox..

Oscar Mike for charity

December 4, 2009

Anyone that’s played Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has heard the phrase “Oscar Mike.” Some of those players didn’t know what it meant, including myself, and made me think of Oscar Mayer Bologna. Oscar Mike means “On the Move.”

Short review: COD:MW2 is an awesome game. The story didn’t feel like the previous, this one had more of an epic action movie feel. The online is just massive. Check it out.

Giant Bomb has Oscar Mike T-shirts for purchase in their shop. The proceeds will go to the Child’s Play charity fund.

Get Oscar Mike to Giant Bomb now!

No More Heroes: Heroes Paradise Trailer

December 4, 2009

Here is the first trailer for Grasshopper Manufacture’s No More Heroes: Heroes Paradise. Still no word on a U.S. release, but they have said that the motion control ( which pretty much made NMH) is being taken out of the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 versions. This writer has only one thing to say to that; DUUUHHHHHHHHHH. I wouldn’t think that anyone would expect the game to retain the motion controls for the HD consoles, even if the PS3 has a motion control set up. The Sixaxis probably isn’t precise enough for it.

Aliens sunk my Battleship

December 2, 2009

Black Cat’s story in Spider-Man 4

November 15, 2009

Black Cat is straying from her comic book story for the upcoming Spider-Man 4.

Reports from Hey You Guys is saying that instead of trying to get her father out of prison, she is the daughter of the new editor at The Daily Bugle. She falls in love with Peter Parker, and discovers his super hero identity. Her father then dies, and she becomes a threat to Parker.

Doesn’t seem to be sticking true to her thief story roots. But when has a super hero movie stayed to the original story exactly?
