Call of Duty map pack: Call of the Dead, inspired by L4D?!

Call of Duty Black Ops new map pack
I was just reading through emails the other day and I saw something that caught my eye “Call of the Dead”. I was excited for a split second, thinking either Treyarch or somebody at Activision had finally decided they would come up with a zombie game of their own, a little late to the ‘hey zombie games are fun’ trend revived by Valve’s Left4Dead but not too shabby considering the other horror themed […]

Video: Need For Speed Shift 2 Unleashed on HP EliteBook

By Brad Apr 14 2011 1 Comment

It’s Thursday evening (and already Friday morning for some), and that can only mean one thing – the weekends are almost here, yet again. And what a better way to unwind than with a little Shift 2: Unleashed. This time I decided to do a little video of Need For Speed’s second game in their “Shift” racing-sim family… and what’s better than racing a black Lamborghini around a race track at over 200 MPH? Well, how about the sight of […]

Crysis 2 chase scene video posted; review to come

By Brad Mar 25 2011 add comment

I’ve just posted a video that I made earlier this week of one of my favorite parts from the newly released Crysis 2: the freeway chase scene. My EliteBook has been cranking away hard at two big game titles all week long: Crysis 2 and Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood. So far, I’m loving both, though I am highly annoyed that this third iteration of Assassin’s Creed still has yet to take advantage of 16:10 display ratios (yup, those black bars at […]

Gaming on the EliteBook 8740w writeup… coming soon after Crysis 2, Assassin's Creed Brotherhood and Shift 2 Unleashed come out
Exciting times lie ahead in the month of March for three reasons: Crysis 2, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood and Need for Speed: Shift 2 Unleashed (what a mouthful). The first two are coming out on March 22 while Need for Speed is being released on March 29. Perfect! Because I don’t think there’s a better or more fitting way to give […]

Don’t want to Find Makarov, what to expect in the real Modern Warfare 3 game

By Brad Mar 2 2011 add comment

As an avid PC gamer, I have played many game titles, almost too many to count. I played the first Call of Duty: Modern Warfare back in 2007, then I revisited it in Full HD, at all the highest settings, on the HP EliteBook 8730w in 2008 (ah, the good times we had). Well, I didn’t expect a sequel, but nevertheless Activision spawned a sequel to the original Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare… two years later in 2009, we […]

‘Find Makarov’ website is NOT Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

By Brad Mar 2 2011 add comment

Find Makarov did NOT result in the revelation of Modern Warfare 3 🙁
What a disappointment, huh? And I thought Activision set up the website “Find Makarov” as a teaser to the announcement of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 today. Yes, there had been speculations that it was a fake, but I still had the slightest, smallest hope inside. But turns out the website pointed to a trailer for a fan-made Call of Duty Modern Warfare live action film. […]

Battlefield Bad Company 2: A PC Gamer’s Review

View of a village you are to raid in Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (Click for full-size 1080p)
One of the things that frequently bugs me is how most ‘mainstream’ video games made by big time publishers almost always get “high scores” and lots of praises from the ‘majority media’ nowadays. All those nines and tens sprinkled in the scores columns of video game reviews, games are being pushed too close for comfort to the ‘perfect’ point to consumers, despite having […]

Battlefield Bad Company 2 (Retail) Initial Impressions

Bad Company 2 main menu!
So I’ve been indulging a little guilty pleasure lately, playing Battlefield Bad Company 2, and delaying the HP Elitebook 8440p review. But rest assured, it was well worth the small compromise (plus, the review of the Elitebook 8440p will be out later this week). I’d like to take my big pair of headphones off and some time off the game to share a few impressions I’ve had so far about the game:

The retail box is […]
