      5 years ago

      sheepysean13

      It seems EA and BioWare are releasing yet another free expansion for ME3's multiplayer, presumably in order to keep people playing due to popular games such as Borderlands 2 and Resident Evil 6 being released. The free DLC, titledMass Effect 3: Retaliation, is the multiplayer's biggest expansion to date and will contain:

      • A new enemy faction to fight, the return of the fearsome Collectors from ME2
      • 16 new characters to play as, including the Turian Havoc Soldier and Ghost Infiltrator, one of which has a kick ass jump pack.
      • New environmental hazards on certain maps, such as acid, sandstorms and lightning.
      • New weapons themed around the collectors.
      • And by the sounds of it, a hell of a lot more!

      And in the trailer it seems that Harbinger himself will make an appearance. Check it out here:

      It will be arriving on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC on October 9th (October 10th for EU PS3s) and will cost you the pricey some of nothing. Its free! You can read more about the upcoming DLC here:

      So what do you g1s think? Is this expansion enough to keep you playing ME3? I know that I am looking forward to fighting the Collectors again!

    • [Community Showcase] Lego Batman 2 officially announced

      5 years ago

      sheepysean13

      Earlier today, Warner Bros. Games announced on their official Twitter Account the arrival of video game sequel, Lego Batman 2, named Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes.

      In addition to playing as Batman and Robin, players will be able to play as other famous characters such as Superman, Green Lantern and Wonder Woman, hence the subtitle, DC Super Heroes, as they battle super villains such as The Joker and Lex Luthor.

      Players will be able to “Explore all new areas of Gotham City utilizing a variety of vehicles including the Batmobile and Batwing. They’ll be able to fight for justice by mastering new gadgets and suits, such as Batman’s Power Suit and Robins’ Hazard Cannon, and using all-new abilities including flight, super-breath and heat vision.”

      A press release has stated that the game will be out this Summer on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Windows PC, Nintendo DS, Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita, so that means that the DS will still have games going by then. (Although they are still making FIFA games for the PS2, so who knows how long DS games will last.)

      I'm looking forward to this game, as I'm a big fan of the charm in the Lego games, and I enjoyed the first Lego Batman, which was a more darker Lego game. Also, Green Lantern as a playable character, what could go wrong? (*remembers Rise of the Manhunters, shudders slightly).

    • First footage of Playstation All-stars Battle Royale released

      5 years ago

      sheepysean13

      Editor's Note: I added the trailer and wanted to mention that Col. Radec of Killzone and Kratos are the other confirmed characters.

      Superbot has shown off their much speculated fighter game on GameTrailers TV. There's some footage and some character reveals, such as Fat Princess, Sly Cooper, and my personal favourite Parappa the Rappa.

      There also seems to be dangerous environments and some sort of “Final Smash” system, as shown when Sweet Tooth turns into a transformer or something. I don't really play Twisted Metal, so forgive me if I'm missing something. While no further announcements have been made yet from Sony, I think we can expect one very soon and there will inevitably be more info at E3.

      You can view the footage here:

       

    • On Her Majesty's Secret Service (Or how sheepysean13 finally introduced himself)

      6 years ago

      sheepysean13

      Oh hello there G1s, I didn't see you there. I'm sheepysean13, future world leader/ruthless dictator/evil genius. I've been G1ing (is that even a word?) here for a little while, and I realised I haven't properly introduced myself yet, how rude of me, so here goes.)

      I live in (not-so) jolly old England, in the quaint old county of Staffordshire, so I'm a LONG way away from the Screwattack HQ, but it's good that I can interact over the interwebz. I love Screwattack because it's a site run by gamers, for gamers, no matter what kind of games they're into. I'm a relatively big sports fan, although I don't really like most American sports, except Basketball, which is my second favourite sport.  (I support the Lakers, by the way.( My first and only love in the world of sport is football, or as you Americans call it, Soccer, my favourite team being Aston Villa, who I've supported since I was a kid. Anyway, enough about sports, lets get on to gaming!

      My two favourite genres of video games are Adventure and RPGs. I also like platformers, especially Megaman-esque games, strategy games, fighting games and the occasional FPS. I'm big into Japanese games, especially JRPGs, so I was happy that Xenoblade came to the UK, and I'm happy that you guys across the pond have finally gotten it too. For some bizzare reason I am a big fan of the Kingdom Hearts games (Disney and Square Enix mixed together? I want what they were smoking when they came up with that?), but I also like Zelda, Final Fantasy (6 specifically), Megaman and I'm really getting into Mass Effect. I am quite open-minded when it comes to gaming.. One minute I'll be calmly playing through Katamari Damasy or my old PS1 games like Spyro-the-Freaking-Dragon, and the next I'll be loudly blasting through some COD or Halo. I own a PS3, Xbox 360, PC, DS, 3DS, SNES, Game Boy Colour, GBA, N64, PS2 and Wii. I don't really get this whole Xbox vs PS3 thing, because they are both great consoles with different pros and cons, and both have very good games.

      Also, why have I never played Chrono Trigger? I'm ashamed of myself...

    • Skyrim Becomes Steam's Fastest Selling Game

      6 years ago

      sheepysean13

      Most of you interested in this news are probably too busy playing Skyrim anyway, but here goes.

      Earlier today, Valve announced that Skyrim is the fastest selling Steam game of all time.    Skyrim's PC version has outsold every other PC game by a margin of 3 to 1, a pretty impressive feat.  Valve's director of business development, Jason Holtman, had this to say,

      “Skyrim is the fastest selling title in Steam’s history. Bethesda’s commitment to and understanding of the PC as a gaming platform shows in the great review scores, spectacular launch, and continued high player numbers that Skyrim has received.”

      Robert Altman, the Chairman & CEO of ZeniMax Media, which is the parent company of Bethesda was also talking about the news:

      We are gratified that Skyrim continues to garner high review scores and accolades around the world. We are most grateful to our fans for their support and enthusiasm for the game, and their love of the hundreds of hours of gameplay it offers. We continue to strive to deliver the highest quality entertainment experience for everyone. 2012 will be another huge year for our fans, with the release of the Creation Kit, as well as exciting DLC which will add to the richness of this epic adventure.”

    • [Community Showcase] 3DS Outsells DS's First Year?!

      6 years ago

      sheepysean13

      In a recent interview with Time magazine, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime confirmed that the Nintendo 3DS has shifted more units in the first 8 months of it's existence than the DS did in a year, over 2.37 million of 'em to be precise! I was a bit shocked if I'm honest. As a day one buyer, I was disappointed with the 3DS's lackluster library of games, so I only really played Super Street Fighter IV. But even though it had a rocky start back in March, things are starting to look up for the successor to the DS. Titles like Ocarina of Time 3D, Mario Kart 7, and Super Mario 3D Land have helped the 3DS rise back into the gaming market from the murky depths where it began.
