Black Ops Is Owning

GameStop has announced pre-order sales for Call of Duty: Black Ops are outperforming those of Modern Warfare 2.According to the chain’s SVP of merchandising, Bob McKenzie, the title has seen “all-time, record reservations” and are ahead of where Modern Warfare 2 was this time last year, a title which “previously set the industry standard”.Back in July, Pacific Crest analyst Evan Wilson said his retail contacts claimed Black Ops pre-orders were accumulating faster than Modern Warfare 2, and he predicated the game could sell 12 million units during the holiday season alone.Wilson also said CoD titles always set a sales record upon release, with each respective game doing better than the previous one in the series.Black Ops is due for release on November 9 for PC, PS3, Wii, and Xbox 360.

If you have heard-Halo Reach has announced that they are the #1 most played game online to this date, for the past few weeks. This may be true, but don't worry Bungie-Treyarch is going to take everybody by the hand and run!

Fallout: New Vegas

Fallout: New Vegas is an upcoming role-playing video game in the Fallout series, currently in development by Obsidian Entertainment (many employees of which worked for Black Isle Studios on Fallout and Fallout 2) and has been scheduled for release on October 19, 2010, in North America, and October 22, 2010, in Europe.
Fallout: New Vegas is not a direct sequel to Fallout 3. The game offers a similar role-playing experience as Fallout 3 and events are set three years later. However, reportedly, no characters from the previous game will appear.

The game places the player in the role of a courier. The courier, while delivering a package to a town called Primm with a platinum poker chip and NCR war documents, is found half dead in a shallow grave after being shot in the head by Benny, the leader of a crime family called the Geckos, and left for dead. The Courier is rescued by a robot named Victor who brings the courier to Doc Mitchel who treats the courier's injuries. Thereafter the player enters into character creation (defining skills and attributes, name, gender, age and appearance) before investigating the assassination attempt, recovering the stolen package, and exploring the world.

MW2 DLC - Not That Fun

I purchased the MW2 DLC yesterday, hoping that the maps would be great, but after playing them, they aren't anything special.
My friend gave me 6000, YES SIX THOUSAND Microsoft points, so I bought them.
(An account he didn't want apparently)
And I just didn't find them fun.
So, I am just downloading movies now :D

So if you are thinking about getting them, think twice.

New Game: Fable III

I've played the first two Fable games, which so far have been great.
I'm a big fan of the second Fable and have all of the DLC for it.
This is a game I am looking forward to, a brief summary of the game is here:

Molyneux has promised to remove traditional RPG mechanics from Fable III, the emphasis being on removing "clunkiness" and making the game more accessible. One of the most striking changes in Fable III is the menu system, or, rather, the absence of one. Citing the distaste of lists, the game lacks any semblance of a traditional 2D menu, instead relying solely on the game universe from the moment you hit the start button. Upon hitting the start button the player is transported to the Sanctuary. The Sanctuary is inhabited by your personal butler, Jasper, who makes in-game suggestions and advice. Changing clothes is now accomplished by using a changing room that features all of your wardrobe possibilities. Magic is now cast by gauntlets kept in the Sanctuary instead of changing them through the HUD, and shops contain their inventories on the shelves instead of in purchase screens.

There are rewards for being a self-serving ruler, including a treasury filled with gold piles that grow or diminish based on the player's wealth. When the player accumulates a large quantity of gold they will be able to climb it to retrieve a key on an otherwise inaccessible balcony. The player's in-game family will attempt to pressure the player into selfishly taking money from Albion to maintain and upgrade his or her castle.

Overall a great RPG which I can't wait to get my hands on.
