We've seen a slew of deals lately for Xbox Live Gold membership cards for around $30, all the while the official price from Microsoft has remained $60. Now all that has changed, at least temporarily, as Silver Members upgrading to Gold via the dashboard can pay the low price of $4 a month - or $48 a year.
Whenever I'm around an arcade, I will gladly forfeit a few quarters to blast some Zombies in the face with any of the House of the Dead games. Since arcades are getting harder to find, I was excited to see the Wii's light gun like capabilities put to good use with the House of the Dead 2&3 combo pack. Even more recently I was excited to see the new Wii exclusive story based House of the Dead: Overkill.
Get ready for a plausible rumor with a less plausible source.
Have you ever done something completely amazing in a game, and wanted to show someone, or keep it to relive the moment? Halo 3 had some temporary videos, saved as replays for a short time on your Xbox 360, and both Halo 3 and Gears of War allow you to take screen shots, but we've never seen the full ability to record and upload a video without expensive equipment.
Console bundles are not hard to come by. Classic consoles almost always had a decent game packaged with them, and with three hot competitors, manufacturers are constantly trying to find ways to lure consumers into spending hard-earned cash on their product.
Shield your eyebrows because Guitar Hero Metallica is going to melt your face to 11 - or something like that. I mean...look at the FLAMES!!!
I was pretty surprised last night when I signed onto Xbox Live and joined a party of folks playing Crackdown. Three separate co-op groups were playing and I wondered if I missed some memo. How did this impromptu session of one of the most fun co-op games start? They said it only took one person playing before the rest wanted to join in, that just shows the longevity and great co-op fun that game has. They wanted more!
The epic battle of a band of space marines against seemingly insurmountable odds, Dawn of War 2 is a unique combination of an RTS and an RPG. We dig deep into the game's two player co-op campaign to find out just who will be the last race standing. Our review is right ahead.
In case you've been living under a rock, there's this little comic book movie coming out this week: Watchmen. It just happens to be the greatest story ever told in comic book format, and the hype for the movie's release has been through the roof. The inevitable movie tie-in game bucks the usual trend, releasing on XBLA and PSN instead of retail. The first of a series of episodic content, Watchmen: The End Is Nigh will set you back $20. (Seems high to me! Who do they think we are, Ozymandias?)
