Most of us around here don’t care so much for the Black Ops games themselves. But if you’re talking zombies mode, I’m in. I think Treyarch would benefit from at least making the zombies mode available as a cheaper standalone game. Maybe something we could get on Xbox Live or the Playstation Network. Coming April 16th exclusively to the Xbox 360 (Until later released elsewhere) is the Uprising Map Pack. You get four new regular multiplayer maps and one new zombie map called Mob Of The Dead. Head past the break for more map info and a video.
Dark is our chance to get a good vampire game. Though vampires seem to be taking over tv and movies, we haven’t seen much of an influx in the video game world. Which is a shame because if the right company starts putting the effort towards a game the genre could become as big as zombies have. What does make me nervous about Dark is that it looks like it might focus too heavily on stealth. It makes sense because vampires are usually pretty stealthy. However, it could also hurt the game if it becomes repetitive and boring. I’ll let you make that decision. Head past the break to check out the latest game play video and game features.
Update 3/25/13: Hello all! We had a bit of a screw up on our part, and we misspelled our own email address, the one you’re supposed to send your entries to.

We want you to make your own videos, with your own footage. So! We’re going to extend the contest an extra 2 weeks to give everyone a fair chance. And if you already submitted a video and you wanted some more time with it, feel free to re-submit at the end end of the 2 weeks. Monday April 8th will be the absolute last day to get your video in!

Right now the Midwest is getting raped. With snow. As soon as I’m done here I have to go outside and shovel until I want to pass out. Then drive to Best Buy in the nightmare mother nature has created to get my copy of Tomb Raider. Past the break you can find the launch trailer that should get you amped for today’s release. It’s getting phenomenal reviews and scores so I can’t express my excitement. Just know it will make all the shoveling worth while.

If you aren’t a Conan O’Brien fan, well you should be. But you should at least be a fan of his ongoing series called Clueless Gamer. Conan isn’t a gamer, and never has been. But he reviews video games on the show, and they are always hilarious. The video past the is by far one of the best. Watch as he plays the upcoming Tomb Raider, dies repeatedly, and pervs on Lara. Enjoy!
I can’t say any more good things about the new Tomb Raider game. I’ve spilled my love for it all over the dance floor in every post I’ve done about it recently. So I will just sit back and let you enjoy the new Reborn trailer you can check out past the break. Tomb Raider comes out March 5th for the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360.

Any one remember that abortion ‘I Know Who Killed Me‘? Well lets hope Murdered doesn’t get as bad of reviews as I Know Who Killed Me did. Though BD gave it a 4/5? Moving on to the real reason we’re here, Square Enix just released the teaser trailer you can see below. All the details are vague and it seems they want to keep it that way for now. All we really know is in the game you are killed, and somehow, probably as a sexy ghost you have to solve your own murder.
The press release urges us to search for clues via Twitter, Facebook, and the Official Website for the game. Murdered: Soul Suspect is looking at an early 2014 release date on the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360.
You’ve probably already heard about Destiny. If you haven’t, it’s Bungie’s newest game since passing on the Halo series to 343 Industries. Bungie is combining forces with Activision this time around who as you know are behind the Call Of Duty series. Bungie made the Halo Universe massive, and they aren’t dialing it back one bit for Destiny. They plan to have a huge social aspect to the game. Where you could be exploring the massive universe in your game and come across other online adventurers in theirs. But it sounds like it will be so much more than what you would experience in an MMO. And it’s loaded with what Bungie is known for. Awesome FPS action. Head past the break for the reveal video, incredible game art, and lots more on the game!
And by that I mean when I watch it I get over come with the feeling of “Coming Soon” perhaps to a theater near me? Video game trailers nowadays are getting more and more kick ass. They’re more professional and feel more and more like they aren’t just video games but movies as well. Past the break you can check out the all new Lamb Of Columbia trailer for BioShock Infinite. The game will finally be arriving a little over a month from now on March 26th for the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360.
The latest and most polarizing entry in Capcom’s action horror franchise has been available on the PS3 and Xbox 360 since October, but PC fans still won’t get it until next month. In an effort to drum up interest in the upcoming PC version, Capcom has released some new gameplay footage from it that will look awfully familiar to anyone who’s played the game already, with a few exceptions. Of note is our first look at Mercenaries: No Mercy, the PC-exclusive version of the popular Mercenaries mode that throws more enemies at you at once. Seeing that many enemies on-screen at once is total anarchy. If you plan on getting Resident Evil 6 when it releases on PC, the two videos I have for you after the break should help give you an idea of what you’re in for. Or you could read our review.
I can rhyme, now so can we. The Journey Through Terror video series is going very in depth on the Dead Space series as a whole. The latest video Part 3 in the series focuses on atmosphere, the use of mining tools over conventional weapons, Isaac’s suits, and the importance of stasis and kinesis. Check out the video past the break!
In an interview with Now Gamer Dead Space 1 writer Antony Johnston states that the action in Dead Space 3 is “a necessary evil in order to broaden the fan base.” He goes on to say that was the plan from the start. “I know the developers always wanted to go bigger, in terms of scope. And I’ve mentioned before that the universe we created was huge, with lots of elements, which simply didn’t make it into the first game.” He’s right. People definitely complain about the over the top action in the new Resident Evil, but would have keeping it stuck so small have stunted its growth? I think Visceral Games probably has that fear. But when you create such a big universe in a game series, it’s hard to keep it from growing. Read the full interview/article HERE!
Coming soon is a big update to Anna which will then transform it into the Extended Edition. Anyone who has already purchased the game will receive this update for free. The games creators Kalypso Media took feedback from people who bought the game and implemented it into the update. Just a few things included in the update are enhanced graphics, more gameplay, more puzzles and much more. If you head past the break you can see the full list and check out a new live action video to celebrate the update. Pick the game up now for PC and Mac on Steam!
Past Tomb Raider games were somewhat streamlined. There wasn’t much room for extensive exploration apart from the main storyline. In the new Tomb Raider you have a map of the island you’re stuck on and there is a lot more you can explore. In the video past the break ‘Guide To Survival Episode #2′, you will learn all about it. There are a lot more areas to explore, and many you can not progress in unless Lara herself has gotten the right items, weapons, or skills learned to do so. I love this because the Tomb Raider games definitely needed to take a turn in the direction of open exploration. But in case you don’t want to stray too far from your main mission you can easily get right back on track using your map. Check out the video past the break.
Dead Space 3 is out today, so instead of reading this you should be playing it and ignoring me at least until next week. If you didn’t buy it yet, then, oh hai! Welcome! Below you can feel free to take “A Journey Through Terror” Part one of four. A more in depth look into Isaac Clarke’s journey through space. There are some spoilers from the first two games so if you haven’t yet gotten around to them (shame on you) I don’t recommend watching. Enjoy!
If you didn’t go wait out in line at midnight last night with the weirdos that hang out in a Game Stop late, you’ve probably quickly snuck in and out of a Best Buy today to pick up Dead Space 3. If you’re new to the series and this is your first Dead Space experience, I suggest you head past the break and check out “The Story So Far” trailer. It gets you up to date on what some of the history of the games and without major spoilers gives you info on the 1st 2 games. It’s also good if you need an all around refresher like me. Head past the break for info on the 1st DLC, screens, and the trailer.
I wasn’t very impressed with the last Dead Space 3 trailer. Just when I think a Dead Space trailer couldn’t possibly be any dumber, they go and do something like this….and totally redeem themselves! (Reference, anyone?!) This new story trailer is kick ass, heart pounding awesomeness. It feels like a movie trailer, and those are my favorite. Check it out past the break and revel in all it’s gory glory.
Players of the fantasy/horror PC game The Secret World now have a chance to get their music heard within the game. Per the press release, “There are several locations in The Secret World where modern music can be heard, such as shops, bars, diners and nightclubs etc. The music sent in by the winners will be implemented in such fitting locations in-game, where anyone can hear them.”
Audio Director Simon Poole comments, “There are a lot of talented and dedicated people in the community, and we are lucky to have a game like The Secret World where their music can fit in perfectly. We already have many artists contributing with their music to the game, and to now give players the opportunity to let their music sound across the radios of The Secret World is even more exciting.”
