Modern Warfare 2 Breaking Records

COD Modern 2I knew it, I can say that again and again and again.  I had no doubts this game was going to break records.

If you haven’t played it yet, you better go get yourself a copy.

Activision reported in it’s 1st day of sales the game has sold over $310 million.  Yes that is three hundred and ten million dollars!  On it’s first day!!!  This makes it the biggest launch in history.  And this is just for the US and UK, nevermind global sales.

Halo 3: ODST

Halo 3Please, please, please tell me you’ve had a chance to check out the latest in the Halo series?  If not, you have no idea what you’re missing!

In this version, you are no longer the Master Chief, you’re just a UNSC soldier known as a ODST (Orbital Drop Shock Trooper) and you’re missing is exploring the ruins on Mombasa to find your missing teammates.  Not an easy task at all of course, but WAY fun.

Sales (as I expected) are soaring on this one.  You can’t miss all of the exciting multi-player action.

Fatal Frame IV:No Go In the US

If you are a Fatal Frame fan, then you are going to be really bummed about this news.  Nintendo will not release the most recent “Mask of the Lunar Eclipse” outside of Japan.

Many gamers had an opportunity to experience Fatal Frame on PS2 and the XBox back in 2002.  With this latest released originally slated for some time in 2009, Nintendo is now not stating the reason for their change of heart.

One can only speculate that there are some sort of issues with the developer Temco LTD.  But who really knows why these things happen.  It’s very strange because you would think that Nintendo would want to expand their opportunity to make more money, but like I said you never know!

Resident Evil 5

I have mixed feelings about this upcoming release.  I have always thoroughly enjoyed the Resident Evil series.  For as long as I can remember it’s been one of my favorite horror action games.  At this point I’m just honestly hoping that it’s a throwback to the original RE series.  I’m talking RE 1, 2 & 3.  I have played every single release in the RE series and yes I’ve been disappointed with the later releases like many RE fans were.  Part of the pleasure with Resident Evil is the scary music playing in the background, the difficult puzzles that really get you thinking on your toes, and of course the horror, sheer horror that is RE.

New Aliens vs. Predator Game

2010 is going to be a good year for anyone who loves the Aliens vs. Predator series.  Sega announced today they are working on the newest game being developed by the independent developer Rebellion.  These are the same creators of the 1999 AvP which was an amazing game.

Sega has already been working on other Alien titles which you might already be aware of.  These titles release dates have been now been adjusted to allow for the release of this game.  Naoya Tsurumi CEO of Sega West states “By adjusting the release of our other Aliens titles to accommodate it, SEGA will ensure that every title lives up to the high expectations of Aliens and AvP fans”

Red Dead Redemption

Rockstar Games announced it’s new sequel to Red Dead Revolver today titled Red Dead Redemption.

They plan to complete it and release it some time this fall.  It will be available for the PS3 and Xbox 360.

Set in the Wild West you will play the former outlaw John Marston instead of Red Halow as was in the previous release.

Not much is being released at this time about the gameplay itself, but with Rockstar’s RAGE engine, this is bound to be an amazing gunslinging game.

The Lord of the Rings: Conquest

Slated for a January 13th 2009 release, fans of LOTR will thoroughly enjoy the latest project.  This game will be released for the XBox 360, PS3, PC and DS.

Pandemic Studios no doubt worked incredibly hard on this game, and from what I have read, they’ve done a really great job on staying true to Lord of the Rings.

You will start off by selecting your character class which includes a scout, warrior, archer, and mage.  With each class, comes your own moves & weapons.  Each has it’s advantages and disadvantages so you should choose wisely.

I wanted to list out the most highest ranking achievements so you can unlock some high Gamerscore points.

Rock Band 2

For any Rock Band fan, mark your calendars for December 18, 2008.  That is the day that Rock Band 2 is being released for PS2, PS3, XBox 360 & Wii.

This version is an upgrade to the previous one on many levels.  Some new additions:

1. Switch Instruments
Anyone who played Rock Band knows that you were unable to change instruments.  Well now you will have the option, which I think is going to be a huge plus.

2. Advanced Character Customization
Just like you could in Rock Band, in this second release you are able to customize your character.  This time though there are some really cool features that were not in the previous version.
