Max Payne 3 – New Trailer

The first glimpse of the long-awaited return of Max Payne – in action. Coming March 2012 to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

Would have like to have seen more bullet time like 1:18 in the clip above, but still looks impressive. If you have for some reason missed out on the first two there definitely worth getting.

Story so far!

Still haunted by the memories of his traumatic past, Max begins a new life working private security protecting a wealthy industrialist and his family in São Paulo, Brazil. When gangs target the family under his protection, Max is forced to fight to save his clients and clear his name, in a bid to, once and for all, rid himself of the demons that have tortured him for far too long.

Bethesda Softworks New Game Announced!

Dishonored

As if Bethesda Softworks  haven’t been busy enough with Rage, Fallout, Prey2 to name but a few, their taking out another title from under their belt called Dishonored.

Not much to go on at the moment only that it will be  first-person action adventure! More details on Dishonored will be revealed in the exclusive cover story in Game Informer ®’s August issue, which ships to subscribers in early July 2011 and hits news-stands on July 15th.

Below taken from GameInformer and it sound’s promising

“We’ve seen the game running, and now we share Colantonio and Smith’s vision too. Dishonored is the antithesis of a edge-of-your-seat roller-coaster ride. It’s a game about assassination where you don’t have to kill anyone. It’s a game about infiltration where you can set up traps and slaughter the entire garrison of an aristocrat’s mansion rather than sneak in. It’s a game about brutal violence where you can slip in and out of a fortified barracks with nobody ever knowing you were there. It’s a game about morality and player choice where the world you create is based on your actions, not navigating conversation trees”.

Dishonored is a game we can’t wait to tell you more about.

Sadly we will have to wait until 2012 to get our hand’s on it.

Modern Warfare 3 Spec Ops Image.

With a new Modern Warfare 3 Spec Ops Survival trailer in the pipeline it’s hard not to be excited,  below is an image they have posted to their FaceBook,  not giving away much at first glance, but you will notice a few new thing’s. The list I have created are not confirmed by Sledgehammer games or Activison.

  • Bottom left Cash for Killstreak’s, Spec op’s only or will this run into the multiplayer also?
  • Bottom left Rampage, Will this be a team rampage or singled out between each player?
  • Grenade icon, Airstrike Icon and HandGun icon,  might be Care package’s , Ammo Drop’s or Streak’s earned between round’s?
  • Wave 25 heard this was endless like zombie’s so good luck on that!
  • Enemy counter self explanatory!
  • Team-mate Down: Second Chance/Last-stand
  • Juggernaut’s are back even though this guy look’s like a mini Juggernaut?

MW3 Spec-Ops

Just some guesses post a comment to what’s on your MW mind!

Call Of Duty – Elite – Thought’s!

Finally we get some information on what this Elite is all about still not very clear in some points?

Too be honest I find the more stats and charts they bring into games the deeper the menus seem to be getting, ie. for black ops I don’t even check gun stats anymore because of the amount of meus to get though to check them. Call of Duty 4 had this really simplified with two presses of A you were their.

All of this looks well on a high-end PC Gamer setup not for the 360/PS3 Gamer.  Nothing against PC Gamers out their just a mouse is way quick for zipping in and out of all these added menus.

Will Cod Points be coming in MW3?  Hopefully not found them to be a lot of nothingness and a waste of time even the challenges I stopped doing way back!

There is a reason why Call Of Duty 4 is still in the top 10.  Less clutter more gameplay!

Call of Duty Elite will include several industry-first innovations, and is a key differentiator for this year’s most anticipated game, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.   Elite will offer two-way communication between the service and the game, so that the choices and decisions that players make in Elite through the mobile and web interfaces will affect their in-game experience.  The service will be fully integrated into Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and will launch alongside the game on 8th November, 2011 .

Call of Duty Elite’s features and services engage the community in three key ways:
·         Connect : Call of Duty Elite gives players unprecedented control over their multiplayer experience, transforming it into a true social network. Players can compete against friends, players of similar skill levels and players with similar interests, join groups, join clans, and play in organised tournaments. They can also track the performance, progress and activity of their entire network, both in the game itself, as well as through mobile and web interfaces.  Elite will be an “always on” way for players to connect with the Call of Duty community.
·         Compete: Call of Duty Elite establishes the most exciting, competitive environment in a multiplayer game.  Players will have available a constant stream of events and competitions, tiered to group them with those with similar abilities .  Both in-game and real-world prizes will be rewarded to all skill levels.
·         Improve:  Call of Duty Elite is like having a personal online coach. It provides players with a dynamic strategy guide that tracks their statistics and performances down to the most minute details.  It can show gamers how they stack up against their friends or others in the community. Tools and information are provided so players can learn and up their game.
Carrying forward to future Call of Duty games, Elite will chronicle a player’s gameplay history in a cohesive career record, keeping track of every kill, every game and progress.

Call of Duty Elite has been tailored for Call of Duty’s diverse base of players – hardcore gamers, casual weekend warriors and even beginners,” added Hirshberg.  “Over 7 million gamers play Call of Duty online each day logging hundreds of hours of multiplayer per player per year.  Of course, the out of the box Call of Duty multiplayer experience that gamers have come to love and expect will continue as is.  However, for those players looking for more, Call of Duty Elite will supercharge their experience.”

Many key features of Call of Duty Elite will be available to Call of Dutyplayers free of charge.  Additionally, for players who want to up their game,Call of Duty Elite will offer a premium membership with a wide range of state-of-the-art services, exclusive entertainment programming and all-inclusive game content for less than the cost of any comparable online entertainment service currently in the market.

The service will be accessible on a number of platforms – via web browsers, mobile devices, through game consoles and within the game interface itself – so that players can connect with Call of Duty Elite whenever and wherever they want.

Call of Duty Elite will launch this autumn with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. However, to test the scale of the service, Activision will hold a public beta this summer for Elite with Call of Duty®: Black Ops.  For more information, go to www.callofduty.com.

L.A Noire – DLC Plans

This should keep you busy for a long time,  even though our very own  editor has 1200/1200 and is counting down the days for the “Nicholson Electroplating” Arson case to be released on the 21st June.

Press Release info!

Starting today in North America and Europe, players can buy the L.A. Noire Rockstar Pass, a new way to pre-order DLC, which gives players access to all seven paid DLC. The Rockstar Pass is available for a limited-time price of $10.00 (PlayStation Network) / 800 Microsoft Points (Xbox LIVE)—a 50% discount compared to purchasing the DLC content individually. Once purchased, the Rockstar Pass enables gamers to download all the announced DLC for free as it becomes available on the PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE, which totals four unique cases, two detective suits and a collectible challenge. Xbox 360 Achievements and PlayStation Trophies will be available in each of the four cases.

All seven pre-order DLC options will be available to purchase from Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network starting today with The Badge Pursuit Challenge and the Sharpshooter/ Broderick detective suits to download for $2.00/160 Microsoft Points and $1.00/80 Microsoft Points, respectively. “The Naked City” Vice case and “A Slip of the Tongue” Traffic case are also launching today. Both cases will each be priced at $4.00 (PlayStation Network) / 320 Microsoft Points (Xbox LIVE).

Inspired both by famous noir fiction and real-life crimes taken straight from the headlines, these downloadable cases will provide unique experiences for players independent of the game’s primary storyline. All of the DLC will be available for purchase through the L.A. Noire Rockstar Pass, priced after the limited discount period at $12.00 (PlayStation Network) / 960 Microsoft Points (Xbox LIVE)—a 40% discount off individual DLC pricing.
