Battlefield Heroes

EA has been creating a lot of buzz with their games recently because they’re starting to become better and better. And now EA is giving a game out to the public for free. It’s name? Battlefield Heroes. A team based TPS set during WWII via web based browser. It seems like there are no hooks or strings attached, and it’s DICE, the actual makers of the Battlefield series, so it’s in great hands. The game shifts away from the realistic and goes for a cartoony approach ala Team Fortress 2. My guess is that so everyone’s PC has a chance of running it. The initial game will only come with two maps since DICE looks at Battlefield servers and only sees two popular maps being played, although they will add more as game players increase (Hopefully). This game is actually decently high on the list of awesome sounding games.

“Take-Two Interactive announced today that BioShock 2 was officially in the works, under the development wing of the recently formed 2K Marin. The sequel to the Xbox 360 and PC shooter is planned for a fourth-quarter fiscal 2009 release date. Take-Two’s fiscal year matches the calendar year, so expect it to hit unspecified platforms before the ’09 holidays.

Take-Two also noted that the original BioShock has 2 million unit sales under its belt since its August ’07 release”  – Quoted from Kotaku

So get your Eve syringes ready, we’re going down to Rapture once again.  Maybe this time it’ll have some replay value (sorry guys, it’s true).

Recently it was discovered that Army of Two, a hit game from EA (Surprise much?) has region protected multiplayer. So basically that means we Americans can’t frag Europeans or Asians, and likewise they can’t frag us. It hasn’t been confirmed for Playstation Network, but Xbox Live is screwed. I’ll keep you updated as to whether PS3 users can’t frag their European brothers.

Spore on the iPhone

March 6, 2008

Along with the news of that Apple has released an official SDK, EA has made it official that their first title for the iPhone will be the highly-anticipated life simulator Spore. This is good news for anyone who has an iPhone and doesn’t want to hack to be able to play some games. I’m still waiting for a Flash player outside the Youtube app though.

There are also other games possibly in the works by EA for the iPhone platform. Expect Spore around September of this year.
