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.

Halo 3 (Ghost Town)

Rather recently, Bungie released a couple screenshots of a new map in the works for their new “Legendary Map Pack”. The first map, ‘Ghost Town’ looks to be in a green-house like setting, and very balanced to allow indoor and out door combat. I wonder how team like games will play out since, Halo’s colors don’t blend in well with green.  Expect the price of the new map pack to be the same as the Heroic Map Pack at 800 Microsoft Points.

Portal Icons Cupcakes

February 27, 2008

Snack Or Die is quickly becoming one of my favorite sites, what with the Moogle cupcakes, Tetris Pop-Tarts, and Cactaur cookies, as well as a bunch of other video game related treats.  Jocelyn has done it again with the Portal icon cupcakes, such as the cake and companion cube.  Check out the recipe and more pics and get to work on making your own.

DIY Paper Portal Turret

February 25, 2008

  Now all we need is a DIY paper HL2 crowbar and a DIY paper Portal gun.  Quite possibly the awesomest piece of paper I’ve ever seen.  Too bad I’m not good at folding stuff :(.  A hearty “Job well done” to DeviantArt user billybob884.
