Blood Dragon is a stand-alone, downloadable expansion to the critically acclaimed “Far Cry 3″. You don’t have to own Far Cry 3, or even have any prior knowledge of the Far Cry series. Blood Dragon is a self-contained, retro futuristic sibling to the franchise, & it’s full of insanity. Is it worth the $15 price tag though?

PAX East – Ep 4
If you love games then you have to love free games. The next one you will find on XBLA is Signal Studios’ Ascend: New Gods. This game is coming soon to XBLA and will be completely free. The cool part is you can help make it better by participating in the beta. You’re probably wondering what the catch is or if this isn’t going to be free to play and instead labeled Pay to Win. I’m going to talk about that in an upcoming preview but I’ll tell you now that there is no catch and it is in fact free to play and not the other way around. It’s also amazingly fun. Stay tuned for the preview and in the mean time get your name in for the beta. You won’t regret it.

As promised here’s a link to a certain video mentioned in the podcast and if you look below I’ve got a code for you to download. Enjoy!!

The long awaited Dead Space 3 has arrived. I know many people are both anxious and hesitant to play this Sci-Fi epic. Long time fans are worried that the inclusion of Co-Op has somehow degraded the horror, atmosphere, and tension of the traditional Single-Player experience. Some are even frightened that the addition and tweaks of some gameplay mechanics have made Dead Space more action focused.
So if you’re ready for me to leak my opinions and thoughts all over your browser, click the jump and read what I, as a huge Dead Space fanatic, had to say about Isaac Clarke’s latest adventure. Continue reading

You don’t need advanced techniques to take down Outposts and get the max XP. You can do it like you would in real life. Cower behind the fence while a bear does the job for you. You can see how having a caged bear and not letting him out is a wasted opportunity.
