While it does not show any actual in-ring action, it does drive one to the point of tears after watching the abominable Hilary Clinton entrance. What's even more depressing is that WWE has actually sent out invitations to both Obama and Clinton for them to appear on their Monday Night Raw show in order to "settle the Democratic nomination process in the ring".
Sen. Hilary Clinton, Barack Obama, and John McCain will each deliver a taped message to the WWE audience on tonight's episode of Raw.
After last week's surprise release for the Unreal Tournament III patch, it seems Epic has outdone themselves once again this week.
As of today, new DLC for Unreal Tournament III is out for both the PC and Playstation 3. Did I mention that it is free?
For further details on this awesome news, check out the press release:
Epic and Midway Announce Unreal Tournament 3 PC Has Gone Gold
PlayStation 3 and PC Gamers Can Get Their Frag On With Three New Maps for Unreal Tournament 3
Today, Midway and Epic Games announce that downloadable content for the award-winning first-person shooter, Unreal Tournament 3, is now available for PlayStation 3 and PC. The downloadable content consists of three deadly arenas: Morbias, Facing Worlds and Searchlight. PC users can find the new content at www.unrealtournament3.com, while PS3 users can download it directly from the PlayStation Network.
These downloads, which are free to all owners of Unreal Tournament 3, mark the latest achievement in providing the gaming community with unrivaled mods and superior experiences through the most recent installment in the Unreal Tournament franchise. While Unreal Tournament 3 shipped with 40 maps, and hundreds of user-created mods have been published since the game’s release, Midway and Epic are committed to providing fans with even more official content to further extend enjoyment of the game.
Morbias is the deathmatch arena that started it all, perfectly suited for anything from small intense duels to chaotic free-for-all matches. The Unreal Tournament classic, Facing Worlds was one of the most played maps in gaming history. This beloved sniper map makes its return alongside an intricate new capture the flag map, Searchlight, designed for both z-axis rooftop runs and strategic indoor gameplay. Returning classics and fresh new designs let you experience Unreal gaming like never before.
Unreal Tournament 3 is rated “M” for mature by the ESRB.
A remake of Facing Worlds? Oh fuck yes!
I'm interested in the new Capture The Flag map, Searchlight. From the way they explain it, it sounds pretty spiffy. It's been a long time since I've played Morbias. I just hope it's a faithful translation, along with the epic map that is Facing Worlds.
If you cannot find the new maps on PSN right now just remember that the maps will most likely be live when the Playstation Store is updated later tonight.
With the FREE update of Warhawk set to hit next week, Sony has released a trailer showing off the new additions to the game.
As you can see, the Bio-Reactor Field Generator & Mechanic's Field Wrench are shown off in the trailer. The Bio-Reactive Field Generator acts like a sort of "Halo 3 field generator", but it actually heals your allies and is able to kill your enemies. The field wrench is reminiscent of the Engineer's wrench in Team Fortress 2, in that it is able to not only repair your vehicle but is also able to harm an enemy's vehicle as well. Also mentioned in the trailer are the various fan-made custom paint jobs and insignias that will be incorporated into the patch.
While the idea of finally being able to repair vehicles during mid-fight has finally come true, I guess we'll have to see if it's a Godsend or just another stab in the face (from shipero... bastard)... and just in time for "Wednesday Night Warcawks" to boot.
With the release of Gran Turismo 5: Prologue set to drop next week in PAL territories, Eurogamer is reporting that pre-orders of the latest game in the series are pushing nearly 1 million in Europe.
According to the article, it is the first time that a PS3 title has racked up more than 1 million sales, all but certifying that the game will reach "platinum" status before it is even released. Eurogamer also has a review posted for Prologue giving the game a respectable "8 out of 10".
As much as I am a fan of the series, I am not looking forward to Prologue as it's basically just an extended demo which you have to pay for. Knowing that the game has already reached 1 million pre-orders is both staggering and disappointing.
Lets see if SCEA can pull of those numbers before the game hits the states April 17th.
According to an article over at Next Gen, K&L has sold more than a million copies worldwide since its release back in November, all but assuring a sequel will be made.
Even though the controversy surrounding K&L was immense, SCi Entertainment (along with subsidiary Edios) went on to tout that the sales of the game have exceeded those of Hitman: Blood Money, released in 2006. They anticipate sales of K&L to continue to grow, and expect the game to become another "key franchise" of the group.
A key franchise to Edios must mean a game with an ass load of controversy, great story, and mediocre gameplay.
Over the weekend, in Monroe County, Pennsylvania, an argument over an Xbox 360 is believed to have led to a son to ask his father to shoot him in which the father, being the total dick that he is, complied to do so.
James Stanley Niedosik, 60, got into a heated argument with his 17 year old son when the young man wanted to show his father the 360 and the father declined to take a gander. During the dispute, the son pulled a Darwinian move and handed his father a rifle and asked to shoot him. Being the father of the year that he is, Niedosik pulled the trigger and fired a .22 caliber bullet into his son's head. The bullet was lodged in the boy's skull (behind the ear), but is expected to survive. He is now being treated at a near-by hospital.
Niedosik was later arrested on numerous charges including: aggravated assault, simple assault, reckless endangerment, and endangering the welfare of a child. He is now in Monroe County Prison on $250,000 bail.
While games may not be the general cause of this crime, I do believe that the father was pretty pissed off at his son for constantly cooking his grenades during their Call of Duty 4 matches.
