Modern Warfare 2 Reveal Trailer Looks Epic

Infinity Ward has done it again.

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was an amazing game and one of their biggest games to date(and one of the biggest games of 2007)... until now. After watching the reveal trailer of Modern Warfare 2, which was revealed to the world a few days ago, I have to say it is pretty damn epic and right up there with the awesomeness of its predecessor.

I honestly do believe that Modern Warfare 2 will easily live up to the hype of the previous game and will deliver in ways we would never imagine(let's hope!).

Modern Warfare 2 hits store shelves on November 10, 2009 for PC, Xbox 360, and PS3.

Let the war begin!

3D Realms Shuts Down
---->Long Live Duke Nukem!<----

I cannot believe it.

Yesterday, May 6, the famous company behind the Duke Nukem franchise shuts down after many years of operation. And the cause? Funding. Everything is being shut down because of funding these days. Why can't they just talk it out or something.

Take-Two says that they still hold the publishing rights to Duke Nukem Forever, the game that has been in development for years, but was never actually funding the game, which I cannot even begin to believe.

Who the hell was funding the game then? Were they secretly taking money from Take-Two? Or was 3D Realms just funding the game with their own money? If they were in fact using their own money, then what the hell is the problem? I don't get it.

I really can't believe 3D Realm has been shut down because of a little funding problem.

Well, I guess it is true of what they have been saying for years... Duke Nukem Forever really had no chance of ever seeing the light of day, or does it? Will it be "forever" doomed to a life of incompleteness? Only Take-Two knows.

I honestly hope they do find another developer to continue the work that has already been done with Duke Nukem Forever, or maybe it was their plan all along to never release DNF, hence the last part in the title, "Forever", as in it will never be released. That don't make a lick of sense though, well, who knows.

3D Realms was definately a great company and will never be forgotten. They've made some of the best games in the industry, most notably the Duke Nukem franchise.

Thanks for everything, 3D Realms!

X-Men Origins: Wolverine [The Game] Is Awesome.. The Movie Isn't
Yep, I said it. X-Men Origins: Wolverine for the Xbox 360 is a lot of fun to play and offers a lot of value... however, the movie that the game is based off of is not that great, unfortunately.

I seen the movie on opening night and my expectations were pretty low to start so I wasn't expecting an Oscar worthy movie, not at all.

The movie was "decent", but the acting could have been a lot better. And some of the humor in the movie was really un-welcomed.. wasn't needed. Besides the sometimes pretty bad acting, and by bad acting, I'm not referring to Hugh Jackman or Liev Schreiber, the movie was "okay". Won't win any awards by any means, but still, all the action I came to expect was all there.

Overall, a decent movie.

Now about the game. The game is based off of the movie although there are a lot of different things in the game that isn't in the movie, but that's good. It's a really fun action-adventure, with lots of blood and awesome combos. All I can say is, the game is a lot better than the movie, and I'm not surprised. haha.
