Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Beta

Interested in getting involved in the beta testing for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3? They are now accepting sign ups for it. As long as your age is old enough, my understanding is that this is open to anybody who signs up soon. Take this opportunity to test out the new elite subscription that is being added to MW3. They haven’t revealed many of those features yet, but it is assumed we may hear about it at E3 this upcoming week.

They have been saying that this game is going to set the new standard for all first person shooters out there. It’s about time for them to change the game. The only problem is that it’s going to cost the gamers even more money this time around. If you’re an Xbox Live user you’re already paying $60 a year to play the game plus you have to buy the game. Now on top of that, there will be a subscription fee for those who want these additional features.

Anyways, if you’re interested in signing up for the beta, you’ll have to fill out this form. They will contact you via email with your beta code when the modern warfare 3 beta starts. I’ve already requested mine because this is going to be the start of the future of gaming. I fully believe that, and I think that Battlefield is choosing an unfortunate time to release Battlefield 3, especially due to the long time between releases. Nonetheless, the fall lineup is already looking great and E3 hopefully will only add to that.

Blur Review

The game, Blur, is a game that came out today for the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3. After one day, gamers have liked what they have seen of this racing game. Here is a review that has been given to the game:

“There are multiple gameplay modes at hand here, but the primary one is combat-focused racing. You face off with up to 19 white-knuckled adrenaline junkies and try to complete a number of laps around a variety of circuits faster than everyone else while staying out of trouble and out of those 19 sets of crosshairs. Scattered about the courses are icons representing each of the eight power-ups available, like the fire-and-forget shunt, the shock attack, mines, turbo boosts, and shields. Most projectiles can be fired forward or backward and it’s important to use them in both directions. Focus entirely on what’s ahead and an opponent will quickly fill your tailpipe with fire and brimstone, but keep your head on a swivel and you might make it for 30 seconds or so without getting blasted – maybe.”

Make sure to look into this game some time.

Tetris Party Deluxe

Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands Review

Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands is a game that was just made available to gamers today. It was released for the consoles of the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360.

Here is a review which has been given to this game:

“If it sounds like The Forgotten Sands is a series of highs and lows, that’s because it is. It’s a game filled with heightened moments of elation followed by stretches of frustrating mediocrity. It nearly all falls apart at the very end, too, when the game creates an unnecessary wall of difficulty by asking the player to accomplish ridiculous feats of timing totally out of line with the rest of the game. The Forgotten Sands‘ flow walks a very fine line, wanting to give the appearance of challenge but without breaking the player’s forward momentum. When you stop moving in this game, you stop having fun. To this end, one of the final stretches in The Forgotten Sands crafts arbitrary difficulty through an uncontrollable camera viewpoint and timed jumps that rely less on skillful use of the Prince’s abilities than it is blind memorization of hard-as-nails jumps.”

Be sure to look into more details about this game if you have the chance.
