BioShock 2 Little Sister Cosplay On Sale!

You would think that you would have to make these kind of cosplay kits but Cosplay House are selling these dress's above from $126.

Gears Of War #15 - They Also Serve

The first issue of new writer Karen Traviss is releasing in comic book stores on the 29 December. And to be quite honest im freaking out about this issue and its story direction. 

This issue takes the reader to the perspective of Adam Fenix, Marcus Fenix father and one of the greatest scientist of the Pendulum Wars and Locust War. We will not only get a glimpse of Adam's military days but also get a look at Helena Stroud in comic book form. Helena Stroud is the mother of Anya Stroud, a major during the Pendulum Wars who dies in the Battle Of Aspho Fields.

Helena is a key figure in the pre-Locust War period and is one of Karen's favourite character. Adam, however is a key figure in both Pendulum Wars and the Lambent invasion, his purpose in the Lambent invasion is not known until the release of Gears Of War 3.

This issue is defiantly going to be one awesome story, Adam really looks like a badass and it will be nice to see different characters in the comic. Heres me excited and ill be posting a review shortly.

inFAMOUS Becomes New DC Comic Book

So DC has once again snatched up another franchise to turn into a comic book, and since the art style of inFAMOUS is based off comic books it would certainly be a shame not to test Cole (the protagonist) heroism in a comic of his very own. 

Red Dead Redemption - "Far Away" by Jose Gonzalez

Its hard to believe that mister Gonzalez has not gotten a music video for his work on Red Dead Redemption, well luckily we finally have one.

An Orgasmic Game Becomes Even More Orgasmic: Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Your probably wondering, how is that even possible for a game like Deus Ex: Human Revolution? Well the folks at Eidos Interactive thought it would be a good idea to release the full directors cut of there first original trailer at E3. The outcome? Well...see for yourself...

Im Really Looking Forward To WH40K: Space Marine With This Video!

When I see Space Marine every time it comes up with new media it looks better. Weird it hasnt even had a proper press release yet, or did it? I dont give a fuck really, I know im gonna buy it first day. But you should really check out this short animation that 40k fans have been dreaming about. 

Are Video Game's Too Americanised?

Gaming these days gets far too familiar. The rough American accents, the simple inner city surroundings and the explosions we see on a hourly basis. Sure we fucking love it, but its far too similar to the big Hollywood blockbusters we see every day, it gets quite annoying after a while to be quite honest.

New Vegas Patchs on the way/ Arrived

A while ago I posted a review on Fallout New Vegas.

I'm sorry to say my opinion has drastically changed. The glitches in Vegas have become near un-bearable. With the constant freezing/ crashing and combination of glitches I can barely play the game without finding a crippling glitch or a freeze in a key-point.

Dead Space 2 "Lullaby" Trailer - There is too many motherfuckin' Necromorphs, on this motherfuckin' plane!

And thus video games will also face the horrible baggage when a sequel comes barging into your living room, it happens to every medium and sadly the majority of sequels, whether they are books, movies or games, generally suck.

Final Fantasy 7 Review


Sephiroth: Behold that mural. The Ultimate Destructive Magic... Meteor.

Red XIII: The Promised Land? Isn't that just a legend? / President Shinra: Even so, it's just too appealing to not to pursue.

Aeris: Say, Cloud. Have you ever been a bodyguard? You DO do everything, right? / Cloud: Yeah, that's right. / Aeris: Then, get me out of here.

I'm planning to go on ahead and review my favourite Final Fantasy games for the next while and what better one to go for next than Final Fantasy 7.

Final Fantasy 7, what words spring to mind when I hear that word?; Epic Storyline that has been known to bring grown men to tears,Epic music to insert emotions never before invented into your body, graphics that were revolutionary for the time it was made (For their first time at making 3D characters). When I was very young, about 1-4 years old, I went over to two of my mams friends. It was in these two houses that I was introduced to Console Video Games. Games that would later be considered classics and standard setters for games to come e.g. Croc: Legend of The Gobbos, Ape Escape, Alundra, Crash Bandicoot. However there was one game I could never stop loving. Final Fantasy 7. Sure, at 4 years old I couldn't even kill the 1st boss without requesting help, but that didn't stop me from enjoying it. When I was six I got my PS1. Got Croc with it. However it wasn't long before I demanded Final Fantasy 7.

Final Fantasy IX review.

Garnet: I am actually... Princess Garnet Til Alexandros, heir to the throne of Alexandria. I have a favor I wish to ask of you... I wish to be kidnapped...right away.

Well as it's Final Fantasy 9s 10th birthday in 14 days (As far as the English version is concerned) and seeing as a friend of mine was kind enough to let me download it onto my PS3 and i've made it to the point just before disc 3, I felt it needed a review. So with the first review for a ps1 game, here I go. I would however ask people to bear in mind that this game is from the year of Y2K so I shan't be comparing it to the games of today (Even though it surpasses most of them). Anyway on with the show.

Fallout New Vegas Review

Well it's well overdue for a review and after playing it for a week I think I have a fairly good idea of what my opinion is.

To start off i'm going to set something straight. Some of you mightn't be able to understand this, I've seen people who haven't played the game declare it an expansion who have yet to play the game. This is far from an expansion. It may have the same game engine and a lot of silly bugs and freezes are still here but that's about it as far as the common ground the two games have eachother. To put it simply; Fallout New Vegas is Fallout 1 and 2 combined with the game engine of Fallout 3.

Killzone 3 Demo Hands On + Pre-Order Goodies In Helghast Edition!

Its no doubt that Killzone 2 is one of the best looking games on the PS3 the way it played, well that was a completely different story all together, but it was still a good game, however, not a great game sadly due to its clunky controls. Its great to see though that Killzone 3 has defiantly improved much of these problems making it the rank of the great game it finally deserved from the beginning.

Fallout New Vegas Collectors Edition Items Review.

On the afternoon of Friday, the 22nd of the 10th in year of the lord 2010. I ventured into Gamestop with fellow BLARGer Adam. It was the game we talked about for a year. The wait was well worth it especially for the near (Pardon the made up word here folks) JIZZTASTIC!.

I spent €80 on the collectors edition, So before I review the game, Allow me to review the actual boxset first.

The first thing i'd like to cover is "All Roads".
All Roads is 40 page graphic novel written by Chris Avellone. It basically tells the story of what happened prior to New Vegas, including Benny meating up with the "Great Khans". It was a great read all together although a bit annoying how we aren't really introduced to the Khans personally.

Next thing I'll talk about are the chips.
You get 8 chips in all. One from each of the major Casinos; The Tops, Ultra-Luxe, Atomic Wrangler etc. It's really nice to have these handy. Not because I intend to gamble/sell. Just to have around as a collectors item. This applies only to 7 of the 8 chips. The 8th chips is EXTRA special. The chip is the "Lucky 38 Platinum Chip" which the entire game is based around. It's even cooler how it is made of proper metal :P.

You also get a "The Making of New Vegas" DVD. I thought this was great. This is a behind the scenes 1 hour long ( At least I think it's that long) documentary of all the work that went into vegas, Featuring interview and such.

Finally but not least the Deck of "New Vegas" cards. Featuring various new Vegas characters with little catch-phrases underneath.

So overall I'd give this Collectors edition boxset 10/10.
This is well worth the price of €80 (Whatever currency it is where you are) and is a MUST for all Fallout fans.

Game On Exhibition 2010 Review (Dublin)

Grrrr.... Theusualtype is eating up alot of posts about his mad love for Nintendo in which I envy him, I am not mad into "family games" even though I posses a Wii and alot of my childhood was eaten up by the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. But I did get a nice trip to Game On in the Ambassador theatre to enjoy all the past and family games and to see how the gaming industry itself got to where it is today.

Fallout New Vegas Hardcore Mode W/ Other game Info.

Fallout New Vegas is probably the game i've looked forward to the most in my whole life. Recently I even bought my own Fallout 3 Bobblehead for €25 off Ebay.

Isn't it simply epic?, Anyway onto the tidbits.

The Professor Layton movie "The Eternal Diva" info + link

In about a fortnights time the latest addition to one of the best loved series of the decade, Professor Layton shall storm onto TV screens in his first movie. The eternal diva is set before the events of "The Curious Village" making it the earliest part of the Professor Layton series. This adventure follows Layton and Luke (On his first REAL mystery with the Professor) after they recieve a letter from Laytons old pupil, Jenis Quatlane. So the dynamic puzzle solving duo set out only to be trapped in a game of epic proportions.

A lot of people said that such an idea could not be done, "How could the puzzle section of Professor Layton work on a TV screen" The masses called out. Well I'm here to say that they captured it perfectly ( they even found a way to incorporate the games puzzle theme song when they were trying to solve the answer). Sure we don't get to solve the puzzles ourselves but we see how Layton solves them with his genious intuition. Don't think that just because this is set before The Curious Village that we won't see any of our favourite characters such as Don Paolo,

We get a brilliant introduction featuring all our favourites (Who were met in later games) including of course Barton and the well-loved inspector Chelmey.

However any extras they could have incorporated were added in, Such as Andrew Schrader the professors mentor (Who is working on the Pandoras Box as we can see it in the background)

So it would be a bit silly for me to give you this review and not include the link. Well I come bearing gifts via this link. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I have because this deserves 5 stars!

Link is Japenese with english subtitles.

Good Day, Take me to your readers

Greetings, I am Paul the latest newcomer to "GameBl4rg". I am the only member not to have an Xbox 360. I am however a colossal Sony and Nintendo fanboy. So I shall give you all the shiz to do with;Wii,Ds, 3ds, Ps3 etc. 

Now to kickstart off my debut. Here is a advertisement of "Fallout: New Vegas" stuff. (14 DAYS LEFT TO RELEASE) 

The Nintendo 3DS. Specs and possible launch games

Nintendo, after releasing the DSI:XL earlier this year, Have already begun the march for the latest in the DS family. As the name says, it's top screen is in 3D...WITH NO NEED FOR GLASSES.

Gears Of War 3 Multiplayer Revealed, Beta Coming Next Year + Dedicated Servers Announced!

Where to start? Gears Of War 3 gameplay was revealed at E3 to demonstrate the stunning graphics and the setting the game will take place in, but now its time to get down and dirty that is surely going to give you a hard on at first glance and probably get you wincing from disgust of the horrible executions that you will be jumping in the air about.

Gears Of War 3 Featured In December Issue Of OXM! Queen Myrrah's New Look!

Nuns Reverse Reverse!

Bungie drops hint about Next game

Earlier this morning, Bungie employee Joseph Staten gave a small hint as to what the first non - Halo game made by Bungie may be like. Staten was giving a talk at GDC online, titled "Writing the Whirlwind" and it was inevitable that somebody would ask him about the new game and universe Bungie are creating, in partnership with Activision.

Borderlands DLC Review: Claptrap's New Robot Revolution

Its hard to believe but yet again we are blessed with another expansion from the folks at Gearbox Software but is it worth your time, effort and money to even bother with the Cl4P-TP interplanetary ninja assassin?

Halo Reach - Review

                                                  "From the Beginning, You Know The End"

This is what we know. We know that the events of this game directly impact the events of the Halo Trilogy. So with that in mind, lets get down to business.

Who Wants Some Fallout Cake?

Anybody want some delicious New Vegas cake? Well I sure as fuck do....

Gears Of War 3 DELAYED!

Well it looks like Cliff Bleszinski was completely wrong when he said you could totally sell a game in April quoting that "..Q1 is the new fall..", well considering that the game has been moved to fall of next year instead of its April 8 release, I say that's a bit of a bitch.....

Carnage Returns!

I have been longing for Carnage to return for a long time now in the Spider-Man comics but I guess its better that he, I mean she, is getting her own five part mini series, that's right folks the new Carnage is a woman. 
This news is a bit of a shock since it was announced at SDCC last July. Exciting for some of the new Spidey fans but not for the long term fans, ever since Carnage was announced he was heavily criticised because of his disruption to Venoms golden years and has left a stain on Venoms reputation by causing him to become a softer character. Not only did Carnage apparently ruin what Venom had going for him he also was seen as a marketing tool due to the popularity of the symbiote, which was in my opinion milked up by Marvel. Im really looking forward to these couple of issues and hope there somewhat similar to the Anti Venom series, which I really enjoyed, what gives me some comfort is that Zebb Wells the writer of Anti Venom is also working on Carnage.

The special guests in this comic is obviously Spider-man who is accompanied by Iron Man.

I can honestly say im looking forward to these five part issues coming this month and is sure to at least check out just to see how new Carnage is getting on, I will admit that I think Carnage is going to be great as a woman the way Carnage strides along with evil in its eyes is something that goes well with woman :P
