Callest of Dutier: More Moderner Warfaring

modwar2

Activision has confirmed that Modern Warfare 2, developed by Infinity Ward will be hitting retail shelves on 11.10.09, a date reminiscent of a bomb going off in your face.  (Which I hope happens in the game.)  You may be wondering, “Hey Josh, isn’t the game called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2?  You even have Call of Duty in  your list of post tags!”.  The answer is no.  Activision has confirmed that Modern Warfare has “taken on such a life of its own”.  In other, less fanciful terms, it’s now considered a spin off.

First Impressions: Wheelman Demo Review

wheelman

Last week we got a double dose of Diesel on Xbox Live and man were we pumped here at PNG.  Jeff definitely piqued my interest during our last Audiophile when he compared it to Burnout with a story.  As I fell deeply in love with Burnout Paradise, I couldn’t see anything wrong with giving the demo a shot.  After all, it is free.

After playing the 3 missions they give you in the demo, I can say three words enthusiastically.  Play this now.

World of Goo is STEAM’s Crazy Weekend Sale

worldofgoo

If you couldn’t justify spending $20 on World of Goo, boy does STEAM have a deal for you!  There is no way you can’t not buy this game for $5, and if you don’t, you hate freedom.  Pick it up in your STEAM client or you can buy it off of their website here.  I played the demo when it was released and immediately fell in love with the game.  I’ve been holding off on buying it as I’ve had so much other stuff to play, but this is a price that demands I pick it up now so I can play it later.  Jim did it with Prey and he’s still waiting!

First Impressions: Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena DEMO Review

riddick

Earlier today, or yesterday depending on your timezone, the demo Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena debuted on Xbox Live.  I took the opportunity to give it a once through and take a few notes about  my impressions of the very short demo.  I won’t bother putting a spoiler warning, because it’s a ten minute demo.  Nevermind that I think I just did with that remark.

I apologize for the size of the picture but I wanted everybody to see what has just appeared in my gamerscore profile for Fallout 3.  Wonder what that means?

Know About It! Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War 2 Single Player Review

Publisher:   THQ
Developer:  Relic Entertainment
MSRP: $49.99

Grade:  A-

 

 

 

 

I couldn’t really tell you why I wanted to originally pick up this game.  The only time I ever played the original Dawn of War was back when it first released and they had a demo.  Furthermore, I was so flabbergasted by the multiplayer beta they had up on Steam.  The thing didn’t even have a proper tutorial!  However, I found myself inexplicably drawn to Dawn of War II and could not resist it’s primal pull.  I’ve always kind of had a dirty admiration and longing to play me some real time strategy games, and even have that same longing to play the actual tabletop version of Warhammer.  My issue is that I could never really get into base building for digital RTS’ and I didn’t have the time and patience to build and paint an army for the tabletop game.

Enter the delicious soup that is Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War 2.  This game is part RTS, part tactical RPG, part Diablo, and completely dope.

The Soap Box: PNG vs. Matt Jones

It's made of people.

It's made of people.

PNG will show that blood means nothing in the world of gaming podcasts as we take on my very own brother in this edition of The Soap Box.  Matt calls out Jim Bradford for his distaste for the recent HAWX demo and brings up some valid points nestled deep within his proclamation of professional aptitude that was bestowed upon him from playing the demo.

“Although not the best game I’ve ever played I have to disagree on the Hawx review.
