Because they are easy for the noob game developer it has encouraged many talented game developers to publish great addicting online games.  Flash game development allows the developer to rule over his or her own creative realm and gather their own feedback to improve or tweak the game. As the popularity of the game increases, the developer can chose to contract the game out to a game publisher and the developer earns a share in the advertisement revenue. So don’t feel to bothered by an ad the next time you play a free game. The ads support the developers and publishers working hard to bring you great free online games.

Dice announced Tuesday May 21st, that the next generation of Battlefield 4 will be sold for multiple game consoles this coming fall season.

Expect to see Battlefield 4 available in stores October 29th for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. In addition Dice will unveil Battlefield 4 at E3 this year and allow all attendees an opportunity to play the game first hand.

Dust 514 official launch 5-14-2013

Its been one of the longest beta testing sessions I think PlayStation 3 users have ever been involved in, but after a year and a half since the testing servers went live, Dust 514 has now officially launched the full version of the game. If you don’t have it, head over to the PlayStation store and download Dust 514 for free. 

For those of us that have been actively beta testing the game for a while now, the improvements made on the recent patch Uprising really pulled the game play and visual experience up to a balanced level. We saw major improvements in weapons adjustment in the range of fire on the sniper riffles, laser riffles, and rail guns. Some classes lost such as the heavy class, lost a little bit of power in order to balance the game out as a whole. The skill assessment was completely reorganized to make it easier to understand how and what items to purchase for upgrading. For a full list of the improvements from the uprising patch check out the Dust 514 forum.

Dust 514 has definitely one of the largest communities of female gamers online. On that note, I'll give a big shout out to the developers at CCP for adding the ladies mercenary suit. Its really one of the best no nonsense charter skins I have seen. They have done an incredible job at allowing the ladies to blend in while in battle eliminating any opportunity for being singled out.
If you are new the game the best way to get started is to do a little reading on the forum to get a basic grasp of the game or head over the public chat channel and look for corporations that are recruiting. Finding the right corporation with skilled players willing to help get you oriented to the game will help you better understand your drop suit, how to fit it, and upgrade weapons. The launch of Dust 514 will open up planetary battles allowing faction warfare but before you can head out into raiding or defending planets it’s a good idea to have a decent leveled up suit with some fire power behind it. Your corporation SEO should be able to lend you a hand getting you set up if not you might want to join up with another group.

Call of Duty Ghost next new game by Infinity Ward

How can the most popular first person shooter game online, Call of Duty get any better than it is?  On May 21st Infinity Ward, developers of the game series, announce the release of the public sneak peek of the new Call of Duty Ghost.  

Call of Duty Ghost will be built on the next generation game engine developed by Infinity Ward that promises to bring in new worlds, maps, game-play experiences and character development. Expect to see the official game trailer launch beginning May 21st and check out the website at Activison to get your first look at COD Ghost.

The game will be published by Activison who has done a tremendous job at marketing and supporting the Call of Dusty series. Let’s hope when the game launch of Call of Duty Ghost launches on November 5th, we will have a finished version of the game that actually works the way we are expecting it. Many game publishers including EA and Activision have been criticized in the past for pushing games to the market before they are finished and ask for a high price for an uncompleted product. There has been negative backlash from Call of Duty Black Ops series due to the games themselves not functioning properly and servers performing poorly, lets hope that Call of Duty Ghost gets it right.

Call of Duty Ghost will be launching in November just after Dice’s Battlefield 4 launches on October 25th. While this is no coincidence, the two game franchises Battlefield 4 published by EA and Call of Duty pushed by Activision are no doubt competing for the dominant market share in online FPS games. However I would hardly crown Call of Duty just yet. John Gaudiosi from Forbes, stated in his article on May 1st that, “The Call of Duty franchise does not have any real close competition.”  I think John needs a little help in getting his facts straight. Battlefield 3 earned 1.3 Billion in revenue and sold over 10 million copies while its contender Call of Duty Black Ops 2 earned a high of 1 billion in total sales. The signal clearly reads a drop in revenue for Call of Duty Franchise and a signal to market the next generation online FPS in order to contend for the crown.

Battlefield 4 changes the game as you know it

From the moment you load your copy of Battlefield 4 don’t expect to follow the command aim and shoot.  That’s been the basic game up until now. Battlefield 4 is not going to dish up the same old boring shoot out as we have been use to in both Call of Duty and Battlefield.  Nope, times are changing and so is the evolution of online gaming.

Sony PlayStation 4 Launches Today

PlayStation users waited anxiously today for Sony’s big announcement. Well it’s here and the game is on introducing the launch of Sony PlayStation 4 or what will be called the PlayStation Orbis. Orbis PlayStation will undoubtedly continue to dominate console sales in the future with an impressive new game controller with touch pad integration.

 So what you can expect from the new PlayStation console is memory expansion and loads of it. I think a whopping 4GB hard drive expandable to 8GB ought to speed up your game loading time. The Orbis will be expected to beat the Xbox 720 with an AMD processor based on its Jaguar CPU architecture. The chips clocks in at 1.6GHz. They have also added enhanced graphics beating the pants off the coming Xbox console. Also included is further integration with smart TVs allowing you to view in game video captions. Imagine no longer having to run to your laptop, pc or mobile device to view a video walkthrough or video tutorial you can view it in game. I think the biggest kick will come from the ability to record and edit your own game play and share it with your friends or the world.

Sony has also planned to reduce the price of the new console due to the negative feedback and slumping first year sales PlayStation 3. The PlayStation price reduction will no doubt be music to every gamer’s ears. We should be able to see consoles hit the stores in time for Christmas season 2013. The estimated price will be close to the $400 mark.

Dust 514 Game Review

Well after the curtain of silence was lifted in September from CCP games I can give you a girl gamers two cents on Dust 514 the FPS MMO from CCP games. First off I want to say I have been waiting a long time for this game to reach testing and I was very excited to take part in the dust 514 beta testing. The idea of having a massive multi-player online first person shooter on Sony play station was the next step in the fps evolution. The team at CCP has been working pretty hard around the clock since the beta first opened in March of 2012 to continue to develop and add-on new features to the game. There have been so many improvements along the way and I think we will continue to see the game evolve long after the Dust 514 release.
I can describe Dust 514 as a cross between Kill Zone colliding with Quake and the result was an FPS that still looks a little old school but raises the bar on giving players a challenging experience. First off, the game takes place across an entire galaxy and your battle outcomes are the key to gaining territory and acquiring strategic resources. That being said, there is a whole lot of reasons to kill everything. CCP did add the option for girl gamers to choose a female mercenary soldier as mentioned in one of my earlier articles but there was no special appearance to my drop suit making it impossible to see the difference. I am hoping CCP has something planned for female Dust 514 players in the coming upgrades before the launch later this year.
What I liked about this game was the massive maps and the Kill Zone planetary feel. Dust 514 offers a few a good selections of vehicles to get around the massive maps. There are a few land vehicles and a gun ship with mounted cannons which I found one of my favorite things to use to get things done. However in order to survive Dust 514 you need to invest in a decent drop suit which is your armor. Your drop suit is your lifeline to staying alive otherwise you die from one bullet. The more upgrades and improvements you make to your suit the better your performance and endurance is. There are so many upgrades to purchase or to earn and so many suit customizations it seems endless. If you have a tricked out combo drop suit, you will definitely dominate in your game. Your suit enhancements are not endless meaning that you use them up as you play and have to restock the abilities in your suit when they run out. I got tired of it pretty quick, because sometimes all I wanted to do is just get into battle and not waste so much time worrying about restocking all the time. In the beginning you will suffer a miserable punishment from players that purchased the merc packs or bought AUR (purchased game currency used to buy exclusive upgrades.) All weapons are crappy to use when you begin the game because you suffer a noob penalty meaning weapons don’t really work and it can take at least two full rounds to flatten your opponent. Big explosions are missing from the game which was surprising for a game loaded with big weapons, stationary turrets, different types of grenades and launchers. But never the less, the big weapons are still a whole lot of fun to use and will blow your enemy off the map.

As for weapons, there is a huge assortment to choose from side arms to swarm launches and high powered laser sniper rifles or assault weapons. The weapons handling is a bit clunky and old school but gets a lot better as you level up. Unfortunately what I did not like about the game was the ammo reloading. It not only is the slowest reload I have ever experienced leaving you dead on the reload but ammo also needs to be purchased before you go into battle. If you run out, you need to change your class. If your battle gets too heated and you are clean out of ammo, you are left spending the rest of the game with nothing but a knife.

Leveling up is not straight forward and takes time to figure it out because you need to earn skill points and customize your drop suit properly to get your game going. Dust 514 is one of the most difficult FPS I have played, if you can survive the learning curve of the game, you’re hooked and the intensity will be rewarding. You do need to give yourself plenty of time to learn the game or find a clan who will take you on and show you the ropes. You probably won’t see too many Jr’s playing Dust 514 because this is no kids game and players with higher levels and upgrades will punish you. Definitely download the game and without a doubt I recommend this to all FPS fans when it launches. The final release date for Dust 514 is set for late 2012 and at this moment not yet announced.

Assassins Creed 3 Looking Like Best Game of the Year

Assassins Creed 3 swept E3 this year with an impressive Best Game of the Year title for 2012 and Game Spot rates this a 9.0 but we saw this coming, it is no doubt one of the best RPG series and it’s one of the most entertaining games to play. Assassin’s Creed has a lot packed into it's third title and you’re not going to want to miss getting this one, definitely put it on your list of games to buy for fall 2012.
First off Assassins Creed 3 has a brand new game engine the AnvilNext engine. It’s taken the team at Ubi Soft three years building this engine from scratch to continue to give users more gaming options and experiences. The story is set in the early American colonial period and the Americans are about to revolt. You play the role of Conner the assassin sworn to fight for the liberty of his people. Yes of course you get to sneak around “killing in the name of…” but what makes this game different than any other RPG is the naval battles. You board ships and engage in pretty hectic warfare that includes: blowing ships to pieces with cannons, storms that blow up out on the ocean up at any time, manic activity and mayhem on the deck while the crew struggles to keep the ship afloat, braving massive swells that nearly swallow the ship and hand to hand combat. In this series you get to pick your style of combat whether it is the usual “I didn’t see the knife coming “method or pistols there are a few options to choose.
Assassins Creed 3 launches October 30th in the US and October 31st everywhere else. is offering a pre order special for both Xbox 360 and PS3 and that is the boarding axe single player weapon and the captain of the Aquila single player character. There are a few other pre order deals just drop me a comment below and shout out any deal that worth mentioning.

Best Game of the Year I think so, tell me what you think. 

Medal of Honor Warfighter Pre-Order line up and Beta

Right now we are all busy trying to find out which fall games will be worth buying.  Before you go out and buy, I would definitely take a look at Medal of Honor Warfighter if you’re a shooter fan. This addition to the Medal of Honor series has been developed on the Frostbite 2 engine. If you have played Battlefield 3 this year you already know what an impact the Frostbite 2 engine made in online gaming. It brought online gaming a huge leap forward for one of the best visual war simulated environments along with incredible sound effects and reactive explosive effects we have ever seen from an online FPS game since the old school days of Doom.
Medal of Honor Warfighter is a four person online co-op. It will allow you to represent 10 different elite Special Forces including, Russia, Korea, US Navy Seals, British, SAS, and Germany. These 4 man co-ops pair off to see which forces will dominate. Also added to the game will be random selected hot spots that will appear. The idea will be to defend or attack the hot spots that crop up.
Medal of Honor War fighter beta will be available for Xbox users starting early October.  The full version of the game is expected to launch on October 23rd in the US and October 26th in Europe.  Pre-order promos are looking pretty good. By order before October 23rd will receive the Medal of Honor Zero Dark thirty map pack in North America and the rest of the World will get the Medal of Honor Hunt Map pack. If you order the Limited Edition before October 23 or while it last ,you will also receive the Battlefield 4 beta key. Now that’s worth the extra effort of pre-ordering.
For more info and to take a peak at the trailers check out the Medal of Honor website.

Call of Duty Launches As Free MMO in China

Call of Duty Free in China

Activision Blizzard announced TuesdayJuly 3rd that they will be bringing Call of Duty online to China through a licensing deal with Tencent.  Only the Chinese version of Call of Dusty is free well, almost.  In order to have weapons and map upgrades, the Chinese users will have to pay for them rather than earn them. That’s mainly because the game will be operated through Tencent a MMO gaming company from China. It looks like the future of online gaming may be leaning toward MMOs now that Dust 514 is about to launch on the Playstation 3 platform for the first time ever in console gaming. 

Massive multiplayer’s so far seem to offer un-interrupted reliable game servers.  I think most players would have to agree it’s nice to not lose your stats and rewards because of game freeze. Playing MMO’s also gives you a chance to game continuously in a linear story without end.  Developers are able to continuously add new weapons and maps to the game to keep things fresh. Let’s certainly hope things go well for Activision Blizzard since western technology is rarely kept a Chinese secret behind the red curtain.

Dust 514 Confirms The New MMOFPS Also For Girl Gamers

There is a new game massive multi-player online first person shooter coming to town if you have not already heard called Dust 514. Yes I admit we have been a bit busy promoting it all over our site and now we have more of a reason to do so. CCP games the developers of Dust 514 have confirmed today that they will include female mercenaries in the Dust 514 universe. For those of you who grew tired of saying "there are not enough games for girls", well now it seems the girl gamers can join the battle and form clans of their own. This information was passed to me today from the public relations representative from CCP games.  We have not officially seen the artwork for the female mercenaries but you can be sure as soon as it is available I will be bringing it to you.

 Dust 514  was revealed for the first time to the fans attending the EVE Online's Fanfest 2012 last week. Fans got a chance to check out the artwork close up and demo the game. For those of you who are not familiar with what the hype is around Dust 514 as a massive multi-player online (MMO) first person shooter (FPS). Maybe this will help you clear it up. What is new about Dust 514 is that, it will be the first massive multi-player online game built for any game console. MMO's games like Warcraft and Eve Online have been around for a while but primarily for PC users. Playing an MMO is not quite the same as popping in and playing a traditional FPS or RPG because sometimes it can have a bit of a learning curve. Sticking it out and leveling up can be a rewarding experience that will allow you to create clans and friends networks at a deeper level than traditional games. CCP is also doing something else that has not been done before on a console game. That is to add a second entirely different game called EVE Online; a space game based on flight combat and combine that with Dust 514; a ground combat shooter. By putting them together it will allow you to have a joined combat playing experience. Imagine a battle against another clan and being out numbered. You can send out a message asking for assistance from a pilot playing up in the EVE universe to come down and preform an air strike and lend your team a hand. He responds to your request and carpet bombs the place helping your clan to defend the territory. Because every action you take in the DUST/EVE universe is permanent. Well, I don't know about you but I am ready to hit the demo in June.

 Dust will be available to demo this summer in June and will be exclusive for PlayStation 3 users only.  Dust 514 release date is still unknown but planned for Q2 2012 and will be free to download for all Sony PlayStation 3 users.

Crytek Launching New Game Crysis 3 Hunter Edition

Well one of the better FPS that launched in 2011 Crysis 2, is ready to bring us some good news. Crytek announced today that spring 2013 we will be seeing the new release of Crysis 3 Hunter Edition. Only this time they are calling it the ultimate sandbox shooter. I don’t know about you but quite honestly I rank Crysis 2 in the top three FPS of 2011. If you are like me and looking forward to this new title then Crytek has some kick’n items lined up you may not want to miss out on for pre-order customers of the Hunter Edition. Crytek also announced that players who are ready to start the hunt can pre-order the Crysis® 3 Hunter Edition* today. The Crysis 3 Hunter Edition gives players the tools to become the ultimate hunter in multiplayer with early access to the new signature bow and its attachments, plus the Hunter Nanosuit module which adds additional power and functionality to the super-suit. Gamers who pre-order now will also have a head start when playing online with a bonus XP boost up to level 5, a unique bow skin and three exclusive dog tags to hunt in style**. The Crysis 3 Hunter Edition is available at participating retailers for $59.99. In addition to receiving the Crysis 3 Hunter Edition, select retailers are offering gamers that pre-order Crysis 3 the following early multiplayer unlocks:  

Stalker Pack — Includes the base game, all Hunter Edition content and the following early multiplayer unlocks: for players who like to stalk their prey from the shadows the Stalker Pack provides early multiplayer access to the deadly semi-auto Jackal shotgun. This powerful, close-range shotgun comes with a unique silencer attachment, custom weapon skin and two exclusive themed in-game dog tags.

Overkill Pack — Includes the base game, all Hunter Edition content and the following early multiplayer unlocks: the Overkill Pack features early multiplayer access to the Typhoon assault weapon and skin. Spewing 500 rounds a second, the Typhoon gives players the ability to go guns blazing to take back the Liberty Dome. Also included are two exclusive Overkill themed in-game dog tags.

Predator Pack — Includes the base game, all the Hunter Edition content and the following early multiplayer unlocks: the Predator Pack delivers early multiplayer access to the Feline submachine gun and exclusive camo. With an extremely fast rate of fire and a 60 round magazine the Feline is highly effective and deadly, at short range.

If you’re wondering about the game play and story well that’s all new too. Set in 2047, Prophet is on a revenge mission after uncovering the truth behind Cell Corporation's motives for building the quarantined Nanodomes. The citizens were told that the giant citywide structures were resurrected to protect the population and to cleanse these metropolises of the remnants of Ceph forces. In reality, the Nanodomes are CELL's covert attempt at a land and technology grab in their quest for global domination. With Alien Ceph lurking around every corner and human enemies on the attack, nobody is safe in the path of vengeance. Everyone is a target in Prophet's quest for retribution. Crysis 2 was a great title unfortunately it did not have the marketing hype and was sadly shadowed by the big launches of Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3. But as far as shooter games go, the CryENGINE 3 was impressive both in game play and visuals. I’m looking forward to Crysis 3 Hunter Edition and I certainly will be adding this to my 2013 game library.

Battlefield 3 Close Quarters DLC On It's Way

Photo of Battlefield 3 New Map Close Quarters

Yes that right you heard it, Battlefield 3 is getting ready to deliver a new expansion pac Battlefield 3 Close Quarters on June 13th. For PlayStation 3 users you will be able to get the expansion pac one week earlier. Oh but wait, great news gets even better as the new expansion pac will offer some new features we did not see before in the standard release of Battlefield 3. In Close Quarters there is new game play mixing teams and instant action. The DLC offers new assignments and weapon unlocks with the opportunity to earn some new jewelry with the addition of new dog tags. The combat looks incredible and enemies will attack from hidden locations giving a little more challenge to the game. But what we like best about Battlefield 3 is the total destruction of objects or buildings. And this time there no limit to chaos, everything blows.

Battlefield 3 really delivered what I consider the best FPS game and best performing FPS of 2011 with the Frostbite 2 engine. We have seen some pretty incredible artwork and game concepts. Dice continues to push the envelope in FPS gaming by not offering the same game twice and I think by looking at the sales figures they know what gamers want.
