THEY: Weapons & Reality Blur Gameplay

Well, here is a game we haven't heard from in a while. Metropolis has released some new footage of their upcoming 2012-set video game title, THEY. The new gameplay shows one of the game's best features, which is pimping your weapons, and boy do those graphics look nice. Enjoy!

Backbreaker: Five New Screenshots

Natural Motion has released five new screenshots of their upcoming football game, Backbreaker. From the looks of it, this has a huge chance of being the Madden killer. You know, the new NFL 2K5. Until we see more of this excellent looking game, enjoy the screenshots.

Grand Theft Auto IV PSM3 Review: 20/20

French gaming magazine PSM3 has reviewed Rockstar's upcoming Grand Theft Auto IV, and have given it it's third perfect score, with a 20/20. Luckily, someone of the Grand Theft Auto IV community broke down the new information from the review.

  • The immensity of the city is almost frightening.
  • The graphics are very cared for whatever subject or detail. Everything shines, everything is beautiful!
  • Walking in San Andreas with no aim in the streets was sometimes boring. The beauty of Liberty City and its animation make walking a real pleasure.
  • It's Roman that motivate Niko to start missions by always reminding him the big plans for the Bellic family.
  • You can make joy girls work.
  • Weapons stores will be in Liberty City.
  • You'll be able to take the subway to travel Liberty City.
  • During the missions, Niko could put his abilities to good use to climb and infiltrate quietly.
  • In a mission, Niko and his friends had to steal the trunk of a bank using explosives. This was followed by a race with the SWAT, helicopters, and Niko had to take refuge in the Underground subway to gain $250,000.
  • In the clothing stores, you choose your clothes and you try them directly.
  • The Pay N' Spray (car paint) is not being used to evade the cops, but rather just to paint your car.
  • The only bugs noticed by the journalists are the problem of sight, and the heavy motions of the character.

Metal Gear Solid 3: Pizza Eater

This is probably one of the weirdest Metal Gear Solid items we've ever seen. Up on auction at eBay is a Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater pizza box. We have no idea what Pizzeria were promoting Snake Eater back when it was released, but this box is pretty cool. No pizza was ever put in it for those worried of grease stains and such. Check it out at the link below.

DUALSHOCK 3 Impressions

Well, I've finally gotten my DUALSHOCK 3. I've got to say, upon picking up this controller, you can certainly feel the difference. Comparing it with my SIXAXIS makes the SIXAXIS feel like a cheap plastic toy. The DUALSHOCK 3 features more weight due to the rumble component inside the controller, and it definitely feels the way a controller should.

I tested the new/old rumble feature with three SCEA games. Since I just bought the Omega Dawn and Broken Mirror booster packs, so I thought Warhawk, along with Resistance: Fall of Man and Motorstorm would be my games. I'm telling you, I was definitely shocked when the controller first rumbled. It's a feeling we haven't felt on our controllers in so long, but it felt good. I got smashed in Warhawk, and it rumbled, and my hands loved it.

Let me just sum this up. We can't really go in-depth when we are talking about a controller that features rumble and a new (right) weight. The only thing we can say is put down those SUXASSES and go pick up a DUALSHOCK 3. You'll like the way your hands feel.

Grand Theft Auto IV Does Not Feature Split-Screen

Yeah guys, as unfortunate as it may sound, Grand Theft Auto IV will not feature a split-screen multiplayer feature.

"The multiplayer modes cannot be played split-screen, so forget about playing this with buddies on a single couch."
Yes, it's hard to see a PlayStation 3 rendering two different parts of Liberty City on one screen, same goes for the Xbox 360.

Grand Theft Auto IV: In-Game Music Dropped from Final Release

A while back, many magazines reported that you'd be able to listen to music while walking around Liberty City in Grand Theft Auto IV using the in-game cell-phone. Unfortunately, the latest issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly has confirmed that this feature has been dropped from the final version of the game.

Hopefully, custom soundtracks will arrive soon for the PlayStation 3, causing no need for this.
