First off, apologies for the delay – it seems Mrs. FooBear got food poisoning and yours truly had to make sure she was ok. So situations beyond my control and all that…now let get to the business at hand.
Who are these people?
Three heroes. Three people who have fought and clawed their way to the top of the raffle mount and planted their victorious flag and shouted: “I claim this awesome prize!!” These fine folks were of course (picked at random-see video) plucked from my lucky San Francisco Giants hat in a salty attempt to have a professional looking contest. What more could be said about these folks? That they’re probably good looking and insanely popular with the opposite gender? Could it be that they have a double life as a CIA operative and use their PS3 as a way to wind down after a tough “assignment”? Or maybe, just maybe – they’re just dedicated Playstation fans and would love nothing more than to win some schwag that yours truly obtained – legally – from a shady, unmarked club in the city? Whatever the answer is, one thing is clear: they’re all FEAR genre fans and now they have the ultimate reminder.
Thanks to everyone who entered. I assure you, your name was written on a shred of a credit card receipt which I then cut into slivers and placed in my hat. All names were drawn at random on the back end of my AAA truck and this contest was not hastily done is any shape or form. Winners/Champions of the contest will be contacted via PM and will have the option of having their box autographed by the Foo himself.
Until the next time Tosh decides to send me to another scary hole-in-the-wall to cover another games’ release – I’m FooBear408. And thanks for tolerating me.
Greetings true believers!
Yours truly went to the FEAR 3 multiplayer event last night. And between you & me, it probably was one of the nicest, and definitely most organized, events I’ve ever been to.
Unfortunately, I can’t cover a lot pertaining to the game for this summary article – for now. What I can tell you is that this game will not disappoint for FEAR series fans. With four different multiplayer modes guaranteed to get to your gamer pulse jumping, I think I very may well have to give this game the coveted “FooBear Seal of Approval”. A really well polished game, and it shows. All three creative directors for the game showed up and gave us the complete rundown on each mode – while they hopped on the sticks and played with us – very cool!
What’s even more cool?
Your lil’ ol’ pal FooBear408 was able to score three items to be given away right here on PS3BLOG.NET. How, do you ask? Well, I know some people who robbed some people and then I had lunch with their people…it’s complicated. On a side note, these items were especially made for the SF event and will not be attainable “anywhere else, not even after the game’s release”. So, in other words, they’re limited. Very limited.
To win one of these collectors items, leave a comment and a winner will be chosen at random! The giveaway will run until 11PM PDT/MST Monday night (check the countdown below); winners will be chosen on Tuesday!
As it turns out, here’s the big reveal PSM3 teased about earlier. Warner Bros. Interactive dropped by the presswire to let us all know that F.E.A.R. 3 is on its way to the PS3, Xbox 360, and the PC.
And what would a F.E.A.R. game be without Alma? Yep, she’s in the game and they all get a big boost of spook from legendary horror director John Carpenter (Halloween, Village of the Damned), and horror comic and scriptwriter Steve Niles (30 Days of Night). Niles co-wrote the game’s script, while John Carpenter provided his talents for the in-game cinematics.
You get to play as super-soldier Point Man or his telekinetic brother, Paxton Fettel, in a new “divergent co-op mode”. In this style of play, players will have distinctly different abilities affecting their own play as well as the experience of their co-op partner. Development will be handled by Day 1 Studios, now that Monolith is out of the picture.
F.E.A.R. 3 is targeting a Fall release for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
