What’s with all the hype? The game looks like it sucks. All this time and this is the best they could come up with? Even the graphics look crappy for a game being developed for this long and with all the graphics that games like MW3 and Battlefield 3 have. Can anyone point out what’s the deal? Does anyone really think it’s worth buying? I surely don’t. To be honest I’m sick of the advertising, all the attention from every tech site I visit, good and bad. I think this game will bomb and only the ...

Who would have thought that someone would use a game like World Of Warcraft (WoW) as a tool for exploitation? Who would have thought anyone would be forced to play a game like WoW and somehow the enforcers would financially benefit from it.

According to this Endgadget article that is exactly what a former Chinese prisoners complained about as he explained how the guards would force the prisoners to play WoW for 12 hours a day and then take the loot collected in the games and sell them onlin...

Haven’t seen much talk about this game on these forums, does anyone here play Starcraft II? Care to share your stats? Maybe your experience with the single player mode? I enjoy the single player much, am currently trying to beat it in Brutal difficulty. Let me say it’s not easy, especially for a guy who is not very experienced in the online multiplayer. All those keyboard shortcuts I haven’t learned yet would make the Brutal level so much easier.

What about Starcraft II casting, does anyon...

OK, so I am in the market for a new set of headphones with a mic for my PC gaming. My previous headset got busted which is why I am contemplating wireless. I tend to lean toward Logitech as their products have always served me well with the exception of one set of headphones I got several years ago which I returned because the whole noise-cancelling feature only canceled my like for it. I ended up getting the Logitech ClearChat Style Headset and it worked perfectly except the cable eventually ga...

Better late than never, but earlier than anticipated So I was able to get my hands on a copy of Black Ops a few weeks before I had decided to get it and I was totally stoked about it. I bought the DVD version as oppose to the online because I couldn’t use my gift cards online due to not having enough on a single card to buy the game and Steam would not allow multiple cards to be used at once to pay the game in full, so Walmart was my next option.

Although many would rather have the game do...

I love the Call of Duty series. I started with COD2 and from there on have been a avid fan ever since. I even eventually joined a clan and became part of an excellent group of people who also love playing Call of Duty games plus several others.

The Call of Duty series was great up until Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare; after this Treyarch kinda thru the Call of Duty into a spin with Call of Duty World at War. The game was not my favorite and most of my friends agreed. It just was not as good...

As some may know I was one of the first to bitch about the short comings of Infinity Wards Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. Seeing most of my friends playing the game on PC I found myself leftout and with little choice by to give in and get the game. For the most part I don't regret the buying the game. I still think it's BS that dedicated servers were left out of the game (sorta) but the game itself has been pretty good. The amount of hackers was truly annoying almost to the point of not wanting ...

A while back, I was excited that a new Call of Duty game was coming soon. Modern Warfare 2. After reading reviews on the game I found out the game was not gonna be as good as I hoped (see my own opinion on the game here). Suffice it to say I was not happy with some of the features the game was lacking. I eventually bought the game as many of my friends (mostly my brothers and sisters in my gaming clan) were playing it and I felt left out. I can't deny that I like the game a lot but am still disa...

Shenanigans, that's the word my online gaming clan (Brotherhood-Clan) friends and I repeated over and over as we found out that Call of Duty Modern Warefare 2 PC version will not have dedicated servers and no ability to play mods on it.

IWNET will replace dedicated servers by turning the PC version into a console type of game play. As a fan of the Call of Duty Series, I had my copy reserved just for the fun of it but now am gonna go to GameStop and ask for my money back. Unless InfinityWard d...

Did I just rhyme that title? Wow. Anyways, as some of you may already know (and those who don't) Call of Duty WAW has a built in zombie mode that can only be accessed 1 of 2 ways; either by completing the single player on Veterans difficulty or to enter a code thru the console. You can also enjoy zombie mode if a friend has already unlocked it and invites you to try the co-oped mode of the game.

Before Call of Duty WAW, I had played the zombie mode created for Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare wh...

I just recently purchased a Nintendo Wii for my kids and they are loving it. I can't deny I like it too, look forward to getting myself Rockband for Wii for Xmas. While I was able to get 2 games plus a game that came with the second controller and the one on the Wii, I am sure the kids will eventually crave for new games. rather than spending $40 on new games and having to watch the kids like hawks to make sure they don't mess them up, I was thinking renting games might come in handy. Blockbuste...

When I bought my wife's laptop I took a copy of Call of Duty 4 as my incentive that I was gonna get a laptop for myself good enough to play it. Once I got my laptop I played the game and was amazed but how graphical and realistic the game is. I love being able to play with today's technology compared to the WWII weapons on Call of Duty 2. The only downside of the game was the length; I beat it in 2 days, actually less. That compared to the weeks it took me to get passed Call of Duty 2 on easy. B...
