Rockstar game latest release “Red Dead Redemption” has caused outrage with many upset gamers dissatisfied with exclusive DLC being available in different countries, in different shops and pre-orders.
DLC for the game on eBay is fetching a fair wack. All three codes, bidding currently at 50 pounds!
- Golden Guns
- Assassins’ Outfit
- 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! So today is your last chance to bag pre-order bonuses unavailable after the release! Compare pre-orders and best prices here GameStock.co
Forza Motorsport 3 is the eagerly awaited sequel to the definitive racing game on the Xbox 360, while the game itself is going to be an instant hit. I’m looking at one of the inside features that is going to open up a whole new world for Forza. Forza 3 gives the player the ability to not only save replays but edit them into videos to upload to the Forza servers. People in the past have had to create their own montages the hard way like you record the TV then upload the video to your computer then edit it in Windows Movie Maker then post it in forums.
However with the recent explosion of user created content has meant that more games are incorporating the ability to record content and post it on the game servers for players to download such as videos/maps/game modes for Halo 3 or songs for Guitar Hero.
Forza 3 has managed to achieve this very well by building the movie maker into the game so that right form your first race you can use the replay to start making cool little videos to show your mates or just post for people to see. The Movie Maker itself can record in 720p HD however this can make the video making process become very time consuming due to the amount of time it takes to create the HD video.
The movie maker will export the HD videos straight to the Forza 3 servers where they can then be edited together to make some amazing displays such as the example that lead Game Director ‘Dan Greenawalt’ gave at E309 earlier this year. Obviously I don’t expect to be able to create videos half as decent as that however Forza 3 has given its players the ability to make videos with ease.

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.
After all, a game a day keeps the psychosis away, as prescribed by millions the world over. by Joshua Grimmer,

Who already saw the X files, can immediately suspect that a different horror-fps got out from Monolith’s workshop. We have already experienced amazing games from the Washington domicile, like the two of NOLF parts, AvP II and TRON 2.0, which ones undoubtedly are the best inner view action game (FPS games).
Monolith can consider partners beside them, like Microsoft, Vivendi Universal, Fox Interactive and Disney. F.E.A.R. was prepared by Warner Bros support, which can be seen from features as cinematic and realistic gameplay.
FEAR’s largest interest is that it does not have one single element that we may not have seen earlier, however it amazes people with its story line and its elaborateness.
The graphics and the physics of the game could be “the fruit of Havok and the Source’s marriage” with some wrong genes, and the artificial intelligence points out solutions that I only saw in scripts in the past.
The graphics are fascinating. Beautiful water, pleasant (bar slightly exaggerated and firmly noisy) physics, high resolution, sharp structures, character models drawn up well, superb animations and spectacular usage of lights and shades makes the game extremely arresting.
Must be mentioned for an innovation that the dust caused by the cartridges slamming into the plaster settles down slowly and its main character has the ability to slow down time (slow motion).
The constructions of the stages are well designed but too lineal and in some places are monotonous.
We are spoiled by the sounds; the weapons sound shockingly realistic, the noises are well calibrated (EAX 2.0). Our eyesight may go away temporarily if a bombshell detonates beside us and our ear rings for a few seconds. HL-feature also is that the music is not playing generally, on the other hand when an important action scene starts up on a level like as if we would be in a cinema to express the importance of the scene.
In summary the game is very well designed, enjoyable due to its features. The game has high system requirements to fully enjoy all the features but it is possible to run it on a weaker configuration so the players with older computers still can play and follow the breath taking storyline. by Endre Urban
… Better still play it on a ready console system it was made for – Xbox 360 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.
