The one with Gameness

Gameness - Every Thursday on victorbarry.com

Right, decided to add a bit more structure to the blog, so from now on, each Thursday (in theory anyway) will feature some video gaming news and the likes!

Ghostbusters is out tomorrow on PS3. From what I read around the web, the Xbox 360 version is better. So you will have to wait till bloody October for that one!

Reviews have been 7 and 8’s out of ten and by all accounts it looks better than it moves!

Pain (from the Playstation Network) is being released next week on Blu-Ray, all the levels etc.etc.etc. Well worth a nose, great fun, even for wives to be be!

Not sure how the COD fans will feel about forking out more money when it comes to this…Future Call of Duty games could come with an MMO-style subscription service, granting subscribers extra options and early access to map packs.
That's according to a mysterious Activision survey doing the rounds on Destructoid, which mentions a CoD service that would "enhance the multiplayer experience and provide exclusive access to a group of gameplay enhancements."
These "enhancements" would include early access to expansions and betas, exclusive character skins, game modes, enhanced stat tracking and "support for competitive play."

 

heavy-rainLots of people, myself included are drooling at Heavy Rain on the PS3. Well, as people know, its delayed and according to the developer, it still needs lots of work. We're still at the alpha stage and there's a whole lot of work to be done," said Quantic Dream's David Cage. "There's so much fine-tuning in the game left to do. Everything has to be perfect. If there's one thing wrong in a scene, it's the only thing you'll see. There are many things that don't work right now. We need to have everything in place, from facial animations, to score to work out the final result." Early 2010 by all accounts!
 
Hands up who remembers the amazing choplifter???? Well, earlier this week, inXile Entertainment filed a trademark for the title "Choplifter" in relation to a video game. We can live in hope!!!

Microsoft bigwig Shane Kim has stated that the release of Project Natal will be "the launch of Xbox 360", and that no new console hardware will be involved."Absolutely. It will be that big," he told Gamasutra. "Now, the good news is that it's not a new hardware architecture; we're not forcing customers to have to go buy a new console because it will work with every existing Xbox 360 out there.

Also, MS just announced new Xbox in 2010. It'll probably just be the current Xbox bundled with that natal yoke.
