Alright, I finally got all the winners for the first come/first serve swag giveaway! It took a little longer to get people to participate than usual, but hey, no need to use up your points or anything this time! Congratulations to the winners:
Sony showed off a very interesting new feature currently in development for the PS3 this week during an event in London that reportedly “shocked” many of the company’s executives. This new technology is a dual-view 3D mode for the PlayStation …
This tweet just came from Rockstar Games “By popular demand our next 2-hour #RedDeadRedemption Triple XP session will begin at 10PM Eastern tonight – so get those consoles ready…”

A new teaser website has appeared with a Modern Warfare style countdown. The new site (which you can view here), was found because of dog tags sent out by Activision. The timer will hit expire at 7 a.m. PST on Wednesday, March 2, which just happens to be during next week’s GDC. ThatVideoGameBlog seems to be the first site to have received them and posted this pic:
It’s finally here! Well, not yet, but it’s going to be. The new DLC for Killzone 3 has finally been unveiled, thanks to Geoff Keighley’s GTTV show. It’s called the Steel Rain map pack, and it’s going to invade your PS3 console soon.
According to the reveal, the map pack will bring you at least two more new 24-player maps. From junkyards to Stahl’s facility giving you many missions to fulfill, to special weapons and game modes, all these are going to be right in your the palm of your hands. Also promised are more exo-suits and jet packs.
Look at the insanely awesome pictures of the Steel Rain map pack after the jump.
Sorry I’m late in getting this up, crazy week. We just played warzone so it was a little chaotic to keep track of who was doing what. But we had people join us off and on threw out the night. Next time we’ll play operations, I did that the next night and it was very fun.
Robot Entertainment is an independent developer that formed from the ashes of Ensemble Studios, which had closed down a couple years ago. If you haven’t been a gamer outside of Sony’s consoles, Ensemble was the developer behind the very popular, Microsoft-owned RTS franchise of Age of Empires (as well as Halo Wars). None of their games had made it to Sony’s consoles (unless you count the Japanese, Konami-published version of AoEII: The Age of Kings in the early days of PS2), until now.
The team invited us to their development studio in Plano, Texas last week to show us, which was referred to at the time, ‘Game 2.0′. Apart from them finishing up on the beautiful AoE: Online (which was once going to be numbered as the 4th installment of the franchise), their main goal at this time is to get their first Intellectual Property, as Robot Entertainment, out in gamers’ hands to enjoy. The game they showed us is simply called Orcs Must Die! With a name, a trailer (which we posted yesterday), and some hands-on time with the game (3 levels, in fact), this is what I think of it (I will start by saying that the trailer does not do the game justice).
Kyle from GTTV was kind enough to send us word, that they are going to be revealing some new and exciting details tonight on Spike. Information will cover games from inFAMOUS 2, and Socom 4 to new DLC info for …
