Dead Space 3's latest trailer "Two Ways To Play" showcases the game's flexibility to tackle Necromorphs all alone or teamed up with a friend (via drop in/ drop out co-op). Is it just me or does this trailer make a co-op play through seem just as scary as a solo one? The trailer also makes it seem like Dead Space 3's story is a lot more robust when playing co-op.

Check it out for yourself (feel free to watch this trailer solo or with a friend):

How to do you plan on playing Dead Space 3? Me? I think I'm going to play it solo because most of my online friends are loot stealing, mood breaking bozos.


Every time we see anything from Gears of War Judgment, it makes the wait until March 2013 all the more painful. Blair Herter is not here to make it any easier, getting a look at more footage from "OverRun" mode, in which gamers will be able to compete as the bad guy Locusts.

He also checks out more of "Free-For-All" mode, the first time in the series that the competition is everyone for themselves. Watch the video for more!

Former Epic Games Design Director Cliff Bleszinski left Epic this past October, rocking the gaming world and leaving behind the studio he'd been with since he was 17 years old. Since then it's been traveling the world, wearing bathrobes until noon and little else. But he's starting to get the old itch, taking meetings and tossing around the idea of starting a new studio.

He stopped by the X-Play studio for a little update with Morgan Webb and Blair Herter, and you can watch it below!

Mario Warfare is a new web series from the makers of Modern War Gear Solid. Mario Warfare is a live action reimagining of the Mario universe through the gritty lens of Call Of Duty. In the first episode, Toad escorts the Princess out of the Mushroom Kingdom after it’s come under siege by Bowser and his army of Shy Guys. Blood, bullets, and drama abound! There’s also a close quarters handgun fight between Toad and Bullet Bill that will have fans of the movie Equilibrium stand up and cheer.

Check it out!

What'd you think? We think it's pretty cool. If you agree (and want to see more) the people behind the web series, Beat Down Boogie, have a Kickstarter page where you can pledge to help them make more episodes (currently there are only 2 eps).

Karaoke For Xbox Live - Sing, Sing A Song, Sing Out Loud!

Karaoke, an exclusive Xbox 360 game from Microsoft and Stingray Digital Group, is available today for download from the Xbox Live Marketplace. Last week I had an opportunity to take Karaoke out for a test sing and had a pretty good time. Karaoke is a polished, easily accessible singing experience that’s perfect for friends/ parties/ vocal warm-ups for your The Voice audition (oh I hope Adam picks me!!). The game (which installs as an app in your dashboard) functions just like a home karaoke machine and gives you access to an 8,000+ song library. How you access those songs might surprise you but more on that in just a moment.

Fire up the game, pick your song (or songs), get on the mic, and start singing. It’s that easy. Songs stream instantly to your Xbox so you don’t have to wait for your favorite jam to download and the game makes a minimal footprint on your Xbox 360. You can even use the game’s built in SmartGlass integration to queue up songs on your phone or tablet if someone’s hogging the mic (protip: there’s an achievement for doing that).

Just like your local karaoke bar, a fairly decent instrumental rendition of your song choice plays while the accompanying lyrics light up on the screen. Unlike your local karaoke bar, your Xbox avatar rocks out to your song on a virtual stage, gathering virtual fans when you properly match the lyrics. The more fans you get, the more “moola” you earn. You use moola to buy in-game props and wardrobe which, in turn, bring more fans. There’s also Kinect integration (at certain moments the game asks you to match your avatar’s pose to attract additional fans) and achievements. Ultimately you don’t have to participate in any of videogame elements of Karaoke but their inclusion round out the game’s fairly successful attempt to please the gamer crowd and the karaoke crowd.

You voted it through each round and it won convincingly each time. Now Dishonored is facing its toughest battle yet. Currently Borderlands 2 is crushing it with over 80% of your votes.

BioShock Infinite Release Date Delayed Again - Is This Gonna Be A Stand-up Fight Or Another Bughunt?

BioShock Infinite’s release date has been delayed until March 26, 2013. News of the delay came directly from Irrational Games creative director and co-founder Ken Levine.

According to a report on Eurogamer, Levine said: “When Rod Fergusson (former Gears of War franchise director at Epic Games) came on board we looked at the game. He was there for about a month and he said, 'look, I've been looking at the schedule and looking at the game and frankly you could really benefit from another three or four more weeks for polish and bug fixing.'"

"We talked about it. I knew I'd probably get beat up in the press a little bit about it. But at the end of the day, if it's going to make a better game we're going to do it. So the new date is March 26 (2013). That's my bad news."

In case you forgot (which I doubt you have), this is the second time BioShock Infinite has been pushed back. Originally the game was supposed to be released in October of this year. Then, shortly after the original delay was announced, two key BioShock Infinite developers left Irrational Games.

So what do you think? At one point in 2012 BioShock Infinite seemed like everyone’s most anticipated game. Do you still think the game will wow you in 2013? Plenty of games have taken similar stumbles on their way to release and come out unscathed (GTA IV, Alan Wake, even the original BioShock come to mind).

On March 26th, 2013 I guess we'll all find out.

PS - how about the image we used on this post? I mean, if that isn't a "delayed again? child please!" face then I don't know what one is.




Skyrim: Dragonborn DLC Achievement Guide - It's Not What I Want, It's What I Can Give You

Skyrim's new DLC Dragonborn will not disappoint all the achievement junkies out there. Bethesda added ten new achievements for a total of 250 Gamerscore and they’re just waiting for you to grab 'em. But what are they? And how do you get them? To help you focus your Solstheim experience I put together a little guide to Skyrim's new Dragonborn Achievements. Check it out:

Outlander - 20G, Arrive on Solstheim. Really simple one - just make the trip to Solstheim. Boom, easy points.

The Temple of Miraak - 20G, Complete the Temple of Miraak quest.

The Path of Knowledge - 20G, Complete the Path of Knowledge quest.

At the Summit of Apocrypha - 40G, Complete At the Summit of Apocrypha. These three are all major quests in the DLC. Just run the main story and there you go.

Dragon Aspect - 20G, Learn all 3 Words of Dragon Aspect. One of the new shouts they added, which lets you deal some major damage with the power of a Dragon. The words are scattered around Solstheim. Two of the Words you get in the story. I found the other one in Bloodskal Barrow/Raven Rock Mine.
