This past weekend we went out to UBC to check out Cos & Effect 2011. Cos & Effect is a cosplay convention, for those who aren’t familiar with the term cosplay. Basically, it means costume-play. People from all over the place are gathered at this convention to celebrate their love for their favourite anime, cartoon, games & comic characters. We sent Lisa out to check out some of these awesome costumes.
Valve officially announced its newest title, sorry guys/girls but it’s not going to be Half Life 3/Episode 3 quite yet. The newest game to be added to Valve’s library is a new CS going by the name of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. There aren’t many details with this announcement yet. But they are promising, new maps, new weapons, new matchmaking & more. CS:GO will be available early next 2012 on PC, MAC, XBOX Live Arcade & PSN. We will be talking more about this game as soon as we get more information on this title.

Still trying to argue that PSN or Nintendo’s friend code system is a better online platform? Well, today xbox officially launches its rewards program in Canada. Basically the rewards program allows users to earn microsoft points by simply using xbox live, like renewal, filling in surveys etc.

Anyway here are some links to get you… Continue reading
Boris: Lets start off light, what are your first impressions?
Kurtis: Well, first off, I wasnt a fan of Uncharted 2 MP, but this one felt more progressive, faster paced, and there was some features that made it fun even if you’re losing! Which is a part of the fun, no one wants to be losing and not having any fun
Boris: yeah! I totally agree with you, the “power play” feature is definetly a fresh idea. I feel like they really tried to balance out the gameplay a bit more. But overall, I felt the look and feel of… Continue reading

While many PlayStation folks are still waiting for PSN to come back to life, so people can get back on Black Ops. Heres some exciting news!
In the latest issue of the Official Playstation Magazine, they had a teaser, depicting a large 3 (in a font that im sure most COD players will recognize instantly) But we’ll have to wait until next months issue to find more about this. With a franchise this big, I guess there’s no way they could put this off for a year. It’ll be interesting to see if there will be major changes to this… Continue reading
