onAXIS: Down Till Sunday

Alright guys, for the next two days (three if you include today), onAXIS isn't going to update you with the latest news. This will be in effect until around 7:30 PM on Sunday March 30, 2008.

The reason is because I'm going to Boston for family reasons, and where I'm heading, I have no internet access. My laptop is unfortunately busted as well. We hope you'll still visit in those three days, keep onAXIS going with traffic.

Once the new site opens (possibly next week), we will have more writers meaning this kind of thing will not be a problem. I'm terribly sorry for this, and I will see you guys Sunday. For now, feel free to drop some news, rumors, and such, in the comments discussion.

Army of Two: Upcoming PS3 Patch, Downloadable Content

Matt Turner, Assistant Producer for Army of Two, revealed today on his blog about an upcoming Army of Two demo and downloadable content.

"So guess what people. The demo is coming. Oh Yeah. Sha-bam. Looks like it will be going live April 1st. So for those of you that have yet to give our game a whirl you can download it off Xbox live and take it for a test run. It’s the training and first map of the game so it gets you familiar with the systems and then lets you get a taste of the combat. We figured that now is as good a time as any to get it out there. It will be free, of course, and waiting to entice you like a piece of raw meet dangling over an alligator pond…jumping, snapping, being generally menacing until you grab it and take it deep under water for a good ol’ fashion death roll… animals! Again! I always get on nature tangents…it’s kind of a thing these days I suppose.

Moving on. So there is 1 new multiplayer map arriving as well as 2 new campaign maps in the not too distant future. As well as SSC Challenge- that’s the obstacle course for mercs that I mentioned in my previous post. So that being said there is some good stuff to look forward to in the future for AO2."
Sadly, a demo will not come to the PlayStation 3 because Electronic Arts wants to shaft it once again. They also revealed details on the upcoming patch for the PlayStation 3 though.
  • Problems connecting to EA servers
  • Getting Disconnected from Multiplayer matches
  • PS3 Headset issues
  • Region Lock
