Killstreak System Revamped in Modern Warfare 3

If you’re like me, you’re pretty tired of all of the Call of Duty games. Modern Warfare 3 has been announced earlier this year and Robert Bowling confirmed that the Killsteak has been revamped. He answered a question on twitter by stating “changed the entire way the killstreak system works. I can’t go into detail yet, but I will share when I can.”

What does this mean? Who knows, all it matters is hopefully it will be something is different.


Sony CEO: 90% of PSN Users Have Returned

After the evil hackers took over Sony for a while, Sony has confirmed that 90% of its users have returned. This means that people are putting their trust into Sony again. Although there really is no reason not to trust Sony it’s the internet you have to trust.

Two Great Nintendo Re-Released Games

One of my favourite Game Boy games is making a comeback on the Nintendo 3DS Eshop. This is of course Kirby’s Dreamland, Kirby’s first ever adventure (that’s right his debut was on the Game Boy) is now available. If I remember correctly his copy ability didn’t exist yet. Just a lot of blowing and sucking…sexy. You can pick it up now for just $3.99.


Along with Kirby’s Dream Land, another great title for the Nintendo will be released shortly to the Virtual Console, Final Fantasy III. If you’re a fan of the Final Fantasy series do not miss this chance to play one of the earlier games.


Rapscallion- Free Demo Download


Hey do you like Limbo and Super Meat Boy? Don’t you wish someone out there made a game combining the two? Don’t you wish it was free?—OK I’ll stop. Rapscallion is a new game developed by Runt, and yes it’s only a demo thus far but it’s a Free Demo of an awesome looking game. Try it HERE.


Batman:Arkham City Footage

This needs no introduction…

Help SAVE THE ALPACAS with Aeria Games!

A woman named Sheryl Hudson in California has recently become the owner of 50 Alpacas–no this is not a joke. There is a problem with this however, somebody abandoned them on her property. So she’s trying her best to feed them and take care of them.

How? Well there is a game called Eden Eternal, a Free MMORPG, and if you buy (Remember you’ll be donating) a pack all proceeds will go towards these Alpacas. I’m personally a huge animal lover and I think this is a great cause, I’m not into MMORPGS but I’ll buy that pack regardless…it’s only a dollar…come on…do it! More information HERE.


Violent Video Game Ban Rejected By Top U.S. Court

“A California law banning the sale or rental of violent video games to children has been rejected by the U.S. Supreme Court.” So turns out that Video Games are still legal…I know crazy right. The courts have stated that even though “Video Games might be harmful to minors” it is in fact up to the parents to decide what their children play, since it’s, you know, under the First Amendment (if you don’t know what that means it’s right to freedom of expression).

Good job boys.
