Battlefield 3 Close Quarters DLC On It's Way

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.

The news came just a week before Blizzard Entertainment announced the release date for Diablo 3. Sadly Blizzard is looking to cut 600 jobs. No small layoff, a big shout out to the Ex-Blzzard crew who just got the freeze.

Get ready to take Earth Back With Mass Effect 3

The first blockbuster game of 2012 has arrived! Mass Effect™ 3 from BioWare, is now available at retail stores in North America and will be launching in Europe on March 9th. Get your guns polished Mass Effect 3 is looking pretty promising for shooter fans. But what what the girls at GGP like is that Bioware did not leave the ladies out of the game plan. Its about time game developers finally got around to giving us a game that includes nearly as many female characters as the guys for a shooter game. A big thanks to Bioware.

The story evolves around an all out galactic war to take the Earth back from a hybrid alien race. Whats great about this game is, that you get to decide on how to take different courses of action through out the game. The outcome of the game will be based on your decisions. The wrong choice can have consequences that can lead to the entire destruction of other civilizations. The story includes Lieutenant Commander Ashley Williams who is a career military officer with the Systems Alliance Marines. Also featuring Dr. Liara T'Soni is an asari information broker with a background in scientific research on Prothean technology. But that's not all, with the planet at stake, you will find a good selection of other leading ladies fighting along side the guys.
Mass Effect 3 includes a multiplayer co-op. As in most shooter co-ops, engineers, soldiers, and infiltrators are in the mix and every one has a job to do in order to help their team win the battle. The game maps feel a lot like Kill Zone 3 and Crysis 2 giving it a suburb visual experience. There is a large variety of weapons and explosives to choose from which pack some pretty devastating effects. To further wet our appetite for battle, Bioware has also released the first DLC From Ashes that is now available to download. The DLC offers an expansion of the story with new objectives extending your game play. From Ashes is available for $9.99 or 800 Microsoft points and is included when you buy the collectors edition.
