Gears of War 3: Released Today!

One of the most anticipated games for 2011 was officially released today; september 20th, 2011! Gears of War 3 is the third and last installment from the Gears of War series, where the first release was in 2006. I personally can't wait for the game to arrive here, I plan on spending the next month or so no lifing this game untill I can't handle it anymore. (which won't happen anytime soon haha!) Anyways I was looking for details about the game on the internet, and I found this site.



Gameplay: 9/10

It’s the same 3rd person, cover-shooter Gears of War you know and love – and though it might be familiar, it’s incredibly polished.

Design and Presentation: 9/10

Gears of War finally gets a little colour in its environments, which thanks to the upgraded Unreal Engine and the extra polish afforded by the five month long delay give you a beautifully designed, comprehensive package.

Value: 9/10

A regular play-through will take 10-12 hours, but you’ll be playing the campaign through a few times with different sets of friends on different difficulties – but you’ll potentially spend hundreds of hours on the games extensive and equally polished multiplayer.

Overall: 9.0/10

There’s really very little reason for anybody who owns a 360 not to own this game.

Can't wait to play!

Final Fantasy X is Coming to PlayStation Vita and PS3 in HD

 (Image released for the PS Vita version of Final Fantasy X.)

It was announced this week, that the popular 2001 role-playing game Final Fantasy X is going to be upgraded to HD, being developed for both the PS3 and PS Vita. Square Enix considers the HD upgrade as a 10th anniversary present, but they haven't yet released sneak peeks of the PS3 version. The remake release date hasn't been said yet, although they did mention the Vita would come out before the PS3 version. - Also, they said that the specs to run the game would be quite similar to the 2001 version, which is great news!
