  • Just received the Call of Duty Black Ops 2 steelbook ...
    By on November 13th, 2012 | No Comments Comments


    A few days ago, I received an email from Futureshop about offering an exclusive Call of Duty: Black Ops II SteelBook case as a BONUS gift with purchase to all customers who pre-order the game and how they extended this offer to all customers who pre-ordered before September 7, 2012. Obviously I was excited because I did not expect to receive it in the first place.

    Funny thing is, I got the steelbook case today and the actual game has not arrived yet (assuming it will be tomorrow based on online tracking) when the actual game was processed BEFORE I put in the order for the bonus case . Oh well, I guess I will just have to wait one more day before I can get my hands on the game.

    What a tease…..

  • Is there still hope for Heavenly Sword 2?
    By on October 25th, 2012 | No Comments Comments

    I was checking out Gametrailers as usually just like every other day. But today was different, something or rather, someone caught my attention. One of the PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale (the PlayStation version of the Wii’s Super Smash Bros. Brawl) walkthroughs features Noriko from Heavenly Sword as one of the playable character in the game. I forgot about Nariko a long time ago and the game Heavenly Sword is still one of the best PlayStation 3 titles in my opinion and also being one of the very first game titles when the PS3 was launched.

    We know that Ninja Theory, the company who developed the original Heavenly Sword, said there will be no sequel. But I kind of got my hopes back up after seeing this. Perhaps its only a false hope.

    I quickly Googled about a possible sequel that could be in the making. There was a bunch of leaked concept art that was rumored to be for the next Heavenly Sword game in August of this year. But that was quickly shot down by Ninja Theory‚Äôs Dominic Matthews that those were in fact, not from Ninja Theory. Well, there goes my hope….

    For now I guess we will have to buy this game when it is released to relive her glory or better yet, play the original Heavenly Sword.

    Check out the Nariko walkthrough:

  • Viking360 modded PS3 controller – all your Call...
    By on October 17th, 2012 | No Comments Comments

    I recently received a modded PS3 controller from Viking360 (Xbox360 modded controllers are also available. The one controller I received in particular is the black PS3 modded controller called the Ragnarok with USB option for $129.90USD while a non USB version is $99.95USD.

    At first glance, the Ragnarok controller looks exactly like a regular PS3 controller. The only difference is the extra tiny mod switch on the back of the controller. I had sometime to test out the different modes like burst fire, jitter mode, akimbo mode, rapid fire, timed reload (they call it Fast Reload) where you can control the timing of your reload. All of these modes are designed specially for the Call of Duty series and may work for other games as per the details on the site.

    The first few tries of switching modes weren’t as smooth and I had to really find a relatively quiet spot to switch between them. But it became second nature soon enough. I’m not going to go into too details on how to switch modes but I will talk about one of them just to give you an idea. For example, for rapid fire mode, all you have to do is hold the mod switch and hit the R1 button, you will see Player 4 LED flashes which tells you that the controller has received your command. You are now in rapid fire mode and you can now fire any single shot weapons like the FAL as if it was a SMG or LMG. Another feature I want to briefly mention is the Zombie mode which offers auto-aim with or without rapid fire support. This might come in handy for those having trouble with much higher stages.


    In the details section on the controller’s page, you will notice something called Phantom Buttons. What this Phanton Buttons means is that, changing modes will not cause you to fire a single shot so that you will not be giving away your positions while you switch in between modes. Call of Duty players like me who really care about stealth and not firing random shots will appreciate this little feature.

    The features go on for this Ragnarok controller and with this USB version you can even program, for example, your Rapid fire Mode to fire from 5 shots up to 99 shots per seconds. I personally think 99 shots per seconds is an over kill but the option is there for those that need it.

    Overall, the Ragnarok does well for what it offers, I have not noticed any problems or glitches while testing this with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Black Ops. Pretty solid piece of modded controller. Again, I apologize for not going into too detail on each modes and how you can program the modes through the USB and your computer. I feel that the default settings for each mode is more than enough for the majority of players out there. Again, the options are there for those who need it.

    I’ve copied the details here for convenience:

    • Single Rapid Fire
    • Dual Trigger Rapid Fire
    • Burst Firing
    • Akimbo Firing
    • Jitter Firing**+
    • Zombie Auto-aim**
    • Drop Shot*
    • Fast Reload**+
    • Phantom Buttons
    • Superfast Mode Switching
    • Superfast Mode Toggling
    • Quick Scope**
    • Auto Sniper Breath Hold**
    • Programmable rapidfire speeds
    • Programmable fast reload delays**
    • Supports ALL NINE Call of Duty button layouts*

    Purchase the USB upgrade for your PS3 Ragnarok, and you will receive free Windows PC customization software, free software updates for life, and these additional mods:

    • Programmable Quick Scope
    • Auto-Sprint
    • Trophy Glitch Fast Reload***
    • Semtex Glitch Fast Reload***
    • Dropshot Mode #2 – stay standing when you scope, dropping only when you fire from the hip
    • Akimbo Mode #4 – for fully auto akimbo weapons

    *Single star features designed for Call of Duty, may work with others.
    **Two-star features only work with Call of Duty games.
    +Plus means Jitter mod and Fast Reload patched in MW3. ALL OTHER FEATURES COMPATIBLE.

  • Is what I am doing really considered camping in Moder...
    By on April 3rd, 2012 | No Comments Comments


    I’ve been playing the Call of Duty series for years, many years, starting with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. From time to time I get messages from haters saying I’m a camper, or something similar but in a lot more offensive tone. That got me thinking, is what I am doing really considered camping? I do realize that staying at one spot for an extended period of time is camping, that’s obvious. But the thing is, I am far from doing that. I mean each game is roughly 7 minutes on average, what is the fun in doing that when I never play the sniper class?

    I think I am just playing smart, I move out when I know or have some idea of where the enemies are and attempt to take them out. In a real life situation, would you jump out of no where and risk getting shot from every possible direction? Plus with World at War and Modern Warare 3′s wacky spawning issue, it is really hard to constantly be moving all over the place and sometimes you do have to buckle down in a spot for more than 5 seconds when enemies just keep pouring out of the same location.

    What do you guys think? Am I really a camper? Or just a smart player trying to maximize the amount of kills and minimize my deaths for the team?

  • Well looks like Duke Nukem Forever blew it
    By on June 15th, 2011 | 2 Comments2 Comments Comments


    I’m glad I forgot to buy Duke Nukem Forever on Tuesday after reading the review from IGN which gave it a jaw dropping 5.5/10. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised by the result after watching this multiplayer trailer from GameTrailers. It looked like a really generic shooter and it just didn’t feel like the good old Duke Nukem. The single player story might be entertaining but I can’t justify paying $69.99 + tax just for single player because I value the multiplayer aspect of a game a lot.


    I’m just sad that after 10 years of waiting and the hype generated throughout, went to waste. I felt like they rushed it out because they knew the fans had been waiting and the developers didn’t want to wait any longer. Instead of rolling out with something similar to StarCraft 2 status, which also came out 10 years after the first game, Duke Nukem Forever blew it.

    Hopefully not forever as the game name suggested. Hopefully there will be another one coming out that’s done properly. One that retains the old humor and game play with next generation game elements. For now I would just bring out the old Duke Nukem 3D in the mean time while we wait yet again for Duke Nukem to return. This one just didn’t do it.

    Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood Animus Project Update 2.0

    Why can’t more game companies be like Ubisoft? Why can’t they make us gamers happier and stop milking us to death? After all, we are the ones keeping them alive. Look at the DLCs for the Modern Warfare series, they (Treyarch) recently said they have listened to the fans and created DLC maps for us, well I guess they didn’t listen hard enough. We said it many many times we didn’t want and we still don’t want to pay for the DLCs, especially rehashed maps like the ones from Modern Warfare 2 DLC.

    Keeping your fans happy goes a long way game companies and Ubisoft is doing the right thing. Good job Ubisoft for releasing Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood Animus Project Update 2.0 for FREE!

  • Battlefield Play4Free
    By on November 7th, 2010 | No Comments Comments


    Battlefield Play4Free looks pretty promising even though it doesn’t have the best graphics but doesn’t mean it will be a bad game. So far based on the trailer, I am more than convinced the game will be worth playing on PC until I get a new PS3 next year. Yes, mine overheated (yellow light of death) again for the second time and died a total of 3 times with the first one being the Blu-ray control board dead.

    I’ve already paid $180 to Sony to fix the control board issue, then another $90 to resoldered the board for the first overheat. I am not going to pay another $90 just to have it resoldered and get it fried again. I might as well accept the fact that I bought a lemon. There is no chance in hell I am going to fork out money to fix this, I’ve already forked out enough to buy a new one almost.

    So what’s the point?

    One reason I believe its a lemon is the fact that, the second overheat happened after 2 games of Call of Duty, don’t tell me the console will overheat after 2 games which lasted for less than 20 minutes. My friend joked its probably because the game got to intense. I laughed out loud.

  • Forget about H.A.W.X 2, Ace Combat: Assault Horizon F...

    Ace Combat: Assault Horizon FTW

    So that H.A.W.X 2 AC-130 trailer failed pretty badly in my opinion. Today I found this trailer for the new Ace Combat series – Ace Combat: Assault Horizon and let me tell you, my eyes were as wide and big as they could be while watching it. Just jaw dropping!

    What’s so special you ask? At first I kind of expected it to be yet another arcade shooter from the series but as the producer points out in the trailer, this is a “rebirth” of the series because the game play is different now. And I think the difference is why I’m so in love with it. Based on the trailer, you are now interacting with your plane and your enemies closer. When you blow up the enemy fighters with missiles or the machine gun, you will get to see pieces flying off, sort of like the human dismemberment from say, Dead Space or Dead Rising.

    Ace Combat: Assault Horizon FTW

    From what I saw in the trailer, looks like you will also get a few slow motion dog fights and being chased by enemies where you actually get to see the enemy chasing after you from the third person camera view. AND, looks like you get to fly and blow things up in a helicopter as well????

    I mean, wow, just wow. I was literally wowing for the entire trailer from start to finish. I hope there’s a TBA soon as I will be getting this one first day no doubt. Its been too long for us Ace Combat fans to wait for the next installment for the Ace Combat series.

    Ace Combat: Assault Horizon FTW

    Ace Combat: Assault Horizon FTW

    Just…..just look at this amazing trailer! I’m sold! LOVE LIVE ACE COMBAT!
