Fallout 3 DLC News


If you missed Fallout 3, don't worry - there's plenty of time for you to catch up, especially since the game looks awesome, in my opinion, and won't get outdated that soon. I know, I know - all those Fallout hardcore fans out there may say that I'm not right, and I must agree with them somehow, because Fallout 3 has some problems in the quests/story side, but nothing's perfect, after all...

Fallout 3 DLC News

The best part of Fallout 3 is that you often feel like starring in a movie. If you want, you can go straight for the main quests and forget about all the little things, but you can also play for at least an hour daily for entire weeks without getting to the bottom of it all. If that's not enough to make Fallout 3 one of the best games of 2008, here's something more: Fallout 3 DLC!

Just like any "serious" successful movie, Fallout 3 left room for some new stories to take place in the same time and place, and - obviously - using the same software platform... but with a little twist.

While "DLC" usually stands for downloadable content released a while after the original game, this time we're in for a surprise - the latest Fallout 3 DLC news says we're going to get a retail package!

According to listings spotted on Amazon's UK store, "The Pitt" and "Operation Anchorage" will come together in a nice package for both the Xbox 360 and PC, with pricing of about $22 in the UK. While slated to appear in late May, this bundle's US pricing is still a mystery.

In the end, here you have my five cents - the funniest part of the whole story is that, as you can see in the image high above, the retail box says "downloadable content," and I really think this wasn't needed. I know this isn't very likely to happen, but what about gamers looking at the box and saying "I will download it, why bother with the box?" before walking away, huh?

Oh, yeah - one more thing - you should also buy Fallout 3 to enjoy the DLC content, if you didn't knew that already. That's it, folks! ;)

Battlefield Heroes Demo Madness


I don't know if you like Team Fortress 2, but that one is surely a unique game. Some may consider it a shooter for the kids, but I think it's more than just that. Its graphics can't match Crysis Wars, for example, but the tactics you need to employ for winning a Team Fortress match will surely beat most shooters out there!
Battlefield Heroes
Why did I bring Team Fortress 2 in the story, when the title is about some Battlefield Heroes demo? Well, to me, Battlefield Heroes is EA's answer to Team Fortress 2. Hopefully, it's going to be better than most EA games I've seen recently, but that remains to be seen.

The good news is that 100k gamers will be able to experience Battlefield Heroes before anybody else, because GameSpot is giving away no less than 100,000 beta keys...so if you're feeling lucky and you want to get a taste of the Battlefield Heroes demo, all you need to do is go to GameSpot, sign in(or become a member, if you don't have an account yet), and subscribe to get a key.

This started on Monday, when 10k keys were given to anxious gamers, and this will go on unchanged until Friday, when no less than 60,000 beta keys will make a lot of gamers happy, and part of a chosen few.

Just as a reminder, this is a the first "Play 4 Free" game coming from EA, allowing you to create, customize, and level up unique war heroes in a cartoon-style world that's not missing tanks or paratrooper operations!

These being said, I bid you good luck when enlisting for the Battlefield Heroes beta, while having a secret wish at the same time - maybe you won't get lucky, and I'll get in first...>:)

BioShock 2 News


BioShock was one game dangerously close to being perfect. I don't know about you, but that's how I see it. Unfortunately, I started playing it, and I didn't manage to reach the end. To be honest, I can't remember why I stopped, but I guess the "T factor" was the main cause. Yup, I am talking about time here. I don't know if I'll be able to get back to it until BioShock 2 comes out, but today I have some awesome BioShock 2 news!

BioShock 2 News

According to IGN, this fall we'll get BioShock 2 right on our gaming machine, no matter if we're using a PC, a PlayStation 3 or a Xbox 360 to fulfill our gaming needs. This time, we'll be taken 10 years later, in the same unforgettable city of Rapture, but we'll play as a whole new character.

Obviously, everything is taken to a whole new level in BioShock 2 - new areas will be accessible, the genetically-enhanced splicers will be slightly different, and on top of it all - you'll be interacting with Little Sisters from a completely new perspective - that of a Big Daddy!

That doesn't mean you'll only play as a Big Daddy, because your BioShock 2 character belongs to a special breed, more of a prototype that turns Rapture's order upside down. As a Big Daddy, you'll be able to get outside the walls of Rapture more than just once, and more than just that...

Overall, BioShock 2 news is looking good. Unfortunately, there's no word out on the DirectX versions supported by the PC game, but it would be great to get BioShock 2 for DirectX 9, 10, and 11 video cards, that would really be a thing to see!
