Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Gets New Characters!

This Novem­ber Cap­com will re-release Mar­vel vs. Cap­com 3 with twelve new char­ac­ters. Not all have been revealed but four have been announced. The four are Ghost Rider, Hawk­eye, Fire­brand, and yes finally Strider. They are call­ing this re-release “Ulti­mate” Mar­vel vs. Cap­com 3. The updated ver­sion will also have a few new modes, one of which being spec­ta­tor mode. It will retail for 39.99 when it hits shelves in Novem­ber. The only down­side is so far is there is no word on whether you must pur­chase this new ver­sion to get all the new good­ies or if you already have MVC3 you can just down­load the update for a smaller price. I am guess­ing they will have a disc ver­sion as well as a down­load­able ver­sion much like Red Dead Redemp­tion did with Undead Nightmare.

What char­ac­ters are you hop­ing for?

Map Pack for Halo: Reach

Halo: Reach will get its first down­load­able con­tent on Novem­ber 30th. “Noble Pack”, as it’s being called, will con­tain 3 new maps and new achieve­ments worth 250 gamer­score points. Micr­soft gave a lit­tle insight to the upcom­ing maps.

Tem­pest – “Though we may never fully under­stand these devices, it is not our nature to leave ancient stones unturned.” This aban­doned shore­line facil­ity bends both sea and sky to an unnat­ural pur­pose, but the ground itself has quickly become another all too famil­iar bat­tle­field. Though the two oppos­ing sym­met­ri­cal bases may never reveal their ancient pur­pose, both now offer makeshift shel­ter and access to strate­gic routes per­fectly suited for small and large scale skir­mishes alike. Tem­pest sup­ports 8 – 16 play­ers and offers a vari­ety of modes includ­ing Free for All, Team Slayer, Team Objec­tive and Big Team Bat­tle. Tem­pest also pro­vides play­ers with a huge Forge palette, allow­ing them to cre­ate new cus­tom map vari­ants that can be shared with the community-at-large.

Anchor 9 – “Orbital dock­yards pro­vide rapid refu­el­ing and repairs for a vari­ety of UNSC ves­sels.” Within the con­fines of this low orbit dry-dock, UNSC craft undergo rapid repair and rear­ma­ment in sup­port of the endur­ing war effort. But for the small squads of infantry who now fight over the mir­rored inte­rior hall­ways and open cen­tral hangar bay, this plat­form no longer pro­vides any safe har­bor – whether the close quar­ters com­bat is occur­ring inside or out of its arti­fi­cial grav­i­ta­tional field. Anchor 9 allows 2–8 play­ers to face off in game vari­ants includ­ing Free for All, Team Slayer and Team Objective.

Break­point –ONI offi­cials believe the data buried within this arti­fact is key to our sur­vival.” Atop this icy precipice, the Inva­sion con­tin­ues. These mod­u­lar archae­o­log­i­cal labs were never intended to with­stand such a large scale onslaught of Covenant mil­i­tary power, but the infor­ma­tion being extracted here may prove vital to humanity’s sur­vival. In response to the immi­nent Covenant threat, UNSC ground and air assets have been deployed to bol­ster entrenched Spar­tan coun­ter­mea­sures. This dig site must yield sal­va­tion, or it will become a grave. Break­point offers mul­ti­player may­hem for 8–16 play­ers, and sup­ports the Inva­sion and Big Team Bat­tle game variants.

Left 4 Dead 2 “The Passing” Released Today

Left 4 Dead 2 “The Pass­ing” was released today.  Below are the details about the new addon.

The first game add-on for Left 4 Dead 2 brings the orig­i­nal Left 4 Dead (L4D1) Sur­vivors down south for a meet­ing with the L4D2 cast, while deliv­er­ing new single-player, mul­ti­player and co-operative game­play for the PC and Xbox 360.

The Pass­ing also intro­duces a series of weekly game mode events dubbed “Muta­tions.” These week-long runs of new game­play modes range from “Real­ism Ver­sus” mode to “Chain­saw Mas­sacre,” which gives all play­ers chain­saws with an unlim­ited sup­ply of gaso­line. There are over 20 Muta­tions planned, each playable on all L4D2 Cam­paigns. Muta­tions are exclu­sively avail­able to own­ers of “The Pass­ing” DLC.

In addi­tion, “The Pass­ing” offers a new co-operative chal­lenge mode of play, sup­port for infected bot play in Ver­sus, a new “uncom­mon com­mon” zom­bie class (the fallen sur­vivor), melee weapon (golf club), and firearm (M-60).”

This addon is of course free for the own­ers of the PC ver­sion of the game.  If you don’t own the PC ver­sion it will cost you 560 microsoft points on Xbox Live.  This is a fairly large down­load.  It is over 1gb so plan a lit­tle time to down­load the addon.

Modern Warfare 2 : The Stimulus Package DLC

The Real Stim­u­lus Pack­age for ppl that are not Bank Dick CEO’s.  No mat­ter ur feel­ing about this fran­chise, or the “spe­cial” AI ene­mies have in the cam­paign (walk­ing in open to get shot) or any of the Infin­ity Ward, Activision BS, u can­not deny the great suc­cess of this game.  []

To quote my best friends at “On March 16, 2010, Activi­sion con­firmed that the game had sold over 14 mil­lion copies world­wide, mak­ing it the sec­ond best-selling game of all time in the UK, and third best-selling game of all time in the U.S.”  Yea, take that…


This sums it up:

Down­load­able content

Activi­sion has announced that two down­load­able map packs will be released for Mod­ern War­fare 2. At E3 2009, Microsoft stated that these map packs would first be made avail­able for the Xbox 360 via Xbox Live before they would be released for other plat­forms. Robert Bowl­ing has stated that the com­mu­nity response to the game and the first two down­load­able map packs would be used in design­ing other poten­tial map packs. The first map pack, the “Stim­u­lus Pack­age”, is set to release on March 30, 2010 for Xbox Live at a cost of 1200 MSP. It will then be avail­able for the PlaySta­tion 3 and PC later on in the year. The pack con­tains five maps: rein­car­na­tions of the Crash and Over­grown maps from Call of Duty 4, and three new maps: Bailout, a multi-level apart­ment com­plex; Storm, an indus­trial park lit­tered with heavy machin­ery; and Sal­vage, an aban­doned car junk­yard in the mid­dle of the snow.”
