- Warhorse & Soundtrack
To calm matters Rockstar games may offer FREE DLC, which was planned as an expansion. The free free co-op mission pack ‘Outlaws to the End’ is out in June. Red Dead Redemption is out tomorrow!

We were all born with a silver console in our corners. Whether your weapon of choice is from Nintendo, Microsoft Xbox360, Sony PS3 or the humble PC, nearly every household in the country will have some sort of console. Many of the games nowadays played on consoles, consist of a fair amount of shooting, maiming and killing enemies, be they human or not (some games may not include this fun-factor, but where’s the fun in that?). The amount of gore and graphic detail that we can see in these games may be described by some as distressing or even sadistic, and plenty of people may see this as a threat to society. However, I may need to remind game bashers that it should be remembered these games are not reality. Pixels, sadly, cannot be killed or hurt in any way, no matter how realistic they may look. Gamers, who are extremely aware of this, play these games to escape the reality that they may not be enjoying that day so much, or they funnily enough may just want to have fun. This fact never occurs to some people. Furthermore, these games are also not intended for less mature audiences. There are laws and things for this; it’s on the box and sometimes in the game too. Games offer a parallel world where the grim details of life can be forgotten and the person’s focus can be on something more positive. It’s not every day I get to save the entire universe from the forces of evil. They may alternatively just want to destroy their friends at Halo 3 online, or die trying. It is these ultimatums of life or death in games, especially in FPSs, that offer very normal people a relative feel-good factor for their day. While the censorship of games is a constant battle as to whether they are truly the cause of violent crimes, I firmly disestablish this as a fact. I think that the opposite is in fact true. Games are our Matrix; only without a real life and death factor. If we could not escape to a virtual world to fight all guns, swords or axes blazing, we might have no solution other than to try it for real.

Its a known fact that the PlayStation 3 has been needing a killer game for a while now. Sure there has been games such as Killzone 2, inFamous and others which has been hyped up as being the next thing for Sony’s console. However even though these games have been decent at best, they still haven’t been the game that Sony’s console needed.
Now two years after the PlayStation 3 was released in the UK the sequel to one of the consoles best game is about to be released. Uncharted: Drakes Fortune was one of the best games available on the console for a long time, it was praised for its great story telling and graphical fidelity. However can Uncharted 2 live up to its hype and become the killer app that Sony really wants and needs. At first signs the answer is yes, the game has been received well by critics, the game currently holds a metacritic rating of 96. Reviewers are going nuts about this game giving it insanely high reviews.
Good reviews for a game are a start and the game does certainly hold a triple A rating. However what needs to be seen is how Sony tells people about the game. Sony have been lacking in the marketing department for some of their games creating weird adverts that don’t quite get the message across to the consumer. This is what could damage the games reception by the mass public and not allow the game to be the best seller it deserves to be.
So in answer to the question is Uncharted 2 the PS3’s saving grace, the answer is yes. The game has been heralded as one of the best games for a while and is a definite must buy for any gamer. However what needs to be seen is if Sony will get the message to the general consumer to make this game the killer app that their console needs. by James La Broy
PS2 beats PS3 experience with Friends
Microsoft and Sony are always in constant battle to produce the next best thing in gaming, trying to make the most real experience, the HD, the virtual world, the alternate reality but be realistic here; it’s supposed to be a game not real life. If I wanted to assassinate corrupt world leaders, then I would join the army. I believe that it has gone just too far, there isn’t any fun left in games, nothing you can laugh at when there is a glitch. Videogames are just too perfect. Don’t get me wrong, I am not a 8bit addict or a Sega lover, I like my games to have some graphics and sustenance but also the game element. I want a console that delivers games that do not make me cry if I lose my saved game. I want a console that brings friends together in my own room, not half way across the world. Believe it or not, I found this wonderful piece of technology. At the time when Zavvi was Virgin Megastores (and not bankrupt), my Dad took me to Exeter and told me he was going to buy me a present. At the time I didn’t know but it was to be the most life changing gaming experience out there. So, we walk in, I get to choose a game (Simpson’s hit and run) and I get my console: The Playstation 2. The PS2 simply is the best. There is no HD, no £40 online gimmicks, it is just pure classic gaming. It is the console to own, millions of games; platform, sport, RPG’s, singing, whatever takes your fancy. I recently moved out and brought my PS2 with 2 games: Star Wars Battlefront 2 and Fifa 07 and everyone comes round to play. Mr PS3 down the corridor and Mr Xbox 360 upstairs are being shunned for the mighty PS2. SO my pledge to my readers is this, don’t go spending hundreds of pounds on fancy technology, buy a PS2 for £30 and I promise you will get more friends. https://gamesplayers.wordpress.com
A fresh new twist. Batman has captured The Joker and sent him back to Arkham Asylum. Soon after The Joker has other plans and sets-a-trap for Batman with his team of nutty inmates who break free! The Asylum goes into lockdown. Batman must now use stealth, and all his combat skills and bat-gadgets to recapture The Joker and fight inmates. Set on an Island, most of gameplay is inside the Asylum, possibly the last place on earth Batman wants to be trapped. Being free to discover the whole Island (which is well sized), you face a variety of specific level techniques to complete in the medical wing, the penitentiary section, the main mansion… each having a fascinating story to add to Rocksteadys’ well designed gameplay.

CoD WAW was always destined to return to WWII. Fans like to relate to real world battles some times and I guess the same goes for the Treyarch. In CoD world at war one the best missions is Vendetta, a sniper campaign mainly with sneaking, and sniping and escaping from a building on fire in time. Two allies assist in the mission to provide a better story line, which isn’t great but the action more than makes up for the plot.
One disappointment is the game is fairly short-lived. Expect to finish the game in around 6 hours if your familiar with COD 4.
Call of Duty 5 was scrubbed from the title because this was an interim release. Playing CoD WaW often leaves us wanting to play CoD 4 afterwards, perhaps the modern warfare weaponry of the twenty 21 century makes blasting the smithereens out of building more fun? But for the sure the online modern warfare is by far a superior game.
