Time to get a hard drive, cheapy

Battlefield 3 on 360 Looks 'Standard-Def' without Installation, Screens and Video Prove

As we previously reported, the Xbox 360 version of Battlefield 3 will include an optional hi-res texture installation. The installation is necessary because the game’s textures are quite large, and hard drives can stream data much faster than DVD drives. Why make it optional then? Because not every 360 owner has a hard drive, of course. That's common knowledge by now, but new details have started to pour in.

Blizzcon 2011 in Pictures

Hey there!  Blizzcon 2011 is in full swing, and Co-Optimus was awesome enough to let me cover it.  Now, I'm not what you would call a "Blizzard Expert," or even a "PC gamer," but I can take a damn fine grainy photo or two!  Feast your eyes on some of the sights of Blizzcon 2011!  Blizzard out did themselves this year, with several gigantic bad-ass character statues.  I also took a trip through their art gallery, as well as captured some of the tournaments, panels, and presentations in action.  We'll have more news from Blizzcon for you soon!

DR2: Off the Record Gets Cyborg Skills Pack DLC Next Week

Dead Rising 2: Off the Record will be receiving some DLC this coming week. It makes protagonist Frank West a cyborg. No, really: it's called the Cyborg Skills Pack. Apparently being a cyborg increases your melee damage, adds electricity bonus damage to your normal attacks, and increases all electrical appliance effects and damage, because that's what the Cyborg Skills Pack does.

Co-Op Classics: The Real Ghostbusters

You can imagine my surprise and shame when I learned recently of an arcade game based on the classic 1984 film Ghostbusters. Compounding my embarrassment was the fact that it would have been a natural tie-in to cover this title when the Ghostbusters games were released on modern consoles in 2009. Sheepish, I grabbed my ten year old son, handed him a controller, and we played a session of The Real Ghostbusters in MAME. It was a mixed experience, to put it delicately.

Our Weekend in Gaming - Defending those Dungeons

It seems that after numerous delays, the release of Dungeon Defenders during this crowded holiday gaming season actually worked out a-ok.  A good chunk of the staff will be heading into the action/tower defense hybrid.  Some of the staff still seems stuck on playing tortur...I mean Dark Souls as well.  It's ok - they probably deserve it.

Battlefield Report: October 21, 2014

(Re-post! A technical glitch erased the Battlefield Report. Here it is again, in case you missed it the first time...) Over the last three weeks or so two shooter beta programs have been launched and closed. Here are my personal impressions of the Battlefield 3 open beta (Xbox 360 version) and the Ghost Recon Online closed beta (PC).

The Battlefield 3 Launch Trailer has Arrived

Launch trailers are all the rage these days, it's a publisher one final attempt to make you say - "Man...I probably should pre-order this."  EA has just put out their launch trailer for Battlefield 3 and I think it serves its purpose quite well.  We've got drama, we've got emotion, we've got tension, and we've got plenty of explosions and guitar riffs.  Cha-Ching.
