Forza 3 Launch

On Thursday October 22nd 2009 car enthusiasts, press and select community members were treated to an evening of on hands on time with Forza 3, a presentation from Korey Krauskopf lead producer and a question and answer period. Korey’s presentation consisted of talking about some the new features of the game and he said the inspiration for Forza 3 was to turn car lovers into gamers and gamers into car lovers. This was a key phrase we heard a lot that evening. Key Features: Over 400 Cars Over 100 tracks Rewind My Store Front Korey also mentioned that we only have split screen co-op in Forza 3 because of the programmers came in on a weekend and spent close to 30 hours to get it to run at 60 frames per second. He also went on to mention that they will be doing downloadable content for cars but still haven’t decided if they will do DLC for tracks as it’s a very costly process. It can take anywhere from 3-4 months to get a track ready for everyone to play on Xbox Live. As Canada is such a diverse country and Montreal will be back on the F1 circuit next year could we see the Montreal track in Forza 3? Let’s...

Review: Halo 3: ODST

New Mombasa is under siege and you are the last hope to save the city, dare I say the entire planet. The bad news, as if the siege wasn’t enough, is that your favourite spartan is not around to save the day… But the good news is your going to get introduced to the next best thing, the 6 man ODST team known as The Squad, humanity’s last chance to save the world. In typical Halo fashion the story line presented is tight and well written. The voice actors are top notch, and the soundtrack is fantastic. Bungie’s audio director Martin O’Donnell takes players on a musical journey, adding in new Jazz like tracks that effectively setting the mood for whatever your current situation happens to be. Take to the streets of New Mombosa and battle your way across the streets to find your squad mates, separated during a routine Orbital drop, and complete key objectives to further the goals of the UNSC while working to secure the city. Use stealth to close in on your enemies and your silenced weapons to take them out before they even know your there. Use the buildings and hidden passages to your advantage..Find doorways to hide in, passageways to combat the Brute’s rush and hide form the volley’s of sticky grenades. A new heads up display providing additional details and visual queues...

Review: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

For those not in the know or living under a rock, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is the very highly anticipated sequel to the 2007 hit Uncharted; Drakes Fortune. While it’s only been 2 years since the 1st game in the series, the people over at Naughty Dog have been toiling day and night to bring us one of the best games available today. To recap Uncharted: Among Thieves has you in the role of series protagonist Nathan Drake chasing the footsteps of Marco Polo on his quest for the fabled Shangri-La. During his quest, Nathan finds himself in a variety of locales from a museum to a warzone. Helping him along the way is femme fatale Chloe. Chloe is a slick and sexy chick with an attitude – exactly a polar opposite of the original girl next door Elana. Nothing has seriously deviated from the original because as the old saying goes “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. They have however tightened up the controls a little and added trophies that earn you money to be used in the game for a variety of costumes – the ability to give yourself any weapon at anytime and even some game modifiers (only usable in a difficulty you’ve already completed). I loved this new feature and it actually has me obsessing over the treasure hunt this time around. Another fantastic...
