L.A. Noire is back with another trailer and has a release date!

UPDATE: The video has been taken down, because it wasn’t supposed to be released yet. Too bad, lets wait for the official release of the trailer. PS! I try to put another link which hasn’t been taken down yet;)

Here it is! In-game footage. Looks like it has a really deep and impressive story. Damn, I like unique games! What do you think of the game? The game is coming out on May 17 on Xbox360 and PS3.

Duke Nukem Forever New Trailer

THE KING IS BACK! Oh yes. We get our hands on this beauty on May 3rd for Xbox360, PS3 and PC. This trailer is really kick ass. The same level of awesomeness as Bulletstorm has in its trailers.

“It’s pointless” “Turn the volume down” “Do something useful”

It might not be!

These phrases are the most common things I hear from my parents or adults while I game. I usually just turn the volume down if they ask me to do that, but I can’t agree with them when they say it’s pointless.

About 50 MILLION Xbox 360 consoles have been sold worldwide. So, about 1% of humanity owns an Xbox 360. That’s not much, but can you make 1% of the world buy a pointless device which isn’t even cheap? I think not. Are people that stupid that they spend their time and money by playing pointless games on that pointless device? You can’t say “pointless” or “useless” about things you haven’t even tried yourself.

Many people say that games are confusing and therefore they have no point and are useless. Hmm… Let me think. A movie was released last year which was very popular because it was confusing…..What was it? Oh right, INCEPTION. People loved it, it wasn’t even that good in my opinion, but people were going crazy. People went to the cinemas, paid for their tickets and that’s why they had to watch the whole movie from the beginning till the end. The same thing is with some games, you just need to follow the storyline, think about it, watch the ending before you make a conclusion, and at some point you realize – “I really liked it”.

Okay, I keep saying that games are not pointless. Let me tell you my 3 main points why I think games are not pointless:

1) You learn something. Every game tries to tell us a story. Many of them are based on real things and even historical events or persons. Thanks to the Civilization series I knew Otto von Bismarck way before others my aged knew. While playing games you remember things more faster.

2) Different periods of time. You also get to know different customs and how things were in the past. In Mafia 2 they show us a pretty good picture of America in the 1940s and 50s. A lot of games are based on WWI and WWII. Also we get to know the medieval times. Or maybe what will future bring us. Games make it possible to relive these periods.

3) Reflexes, thinking and consequences. The point is, we train our reflexes by playing for example ANY FPS game. Games make us think. There is even a genre for games that need thinking – puzzle games. And don’t think that other games need no thinking. Oh yes they do. You constantly need to think. Many of us think that games show us that killing people or driving your car straight to the wall are okay and by doing so you have to face no consequences. WRONG. You know that your wreck your car and might get seriously injured when you make a car accident. Killing people is wrong and games don’t make us kill other people. If kids really think that it’s okay, then their parents should have a serious chat with them.

So think before you say games are pointless. Try them yourself. Play a game from start to finish. Prejudice sucks and it has no place in gaming world. What would have happened if everybody thought that Red Dead Redemption was just a boring game where you ride horses and shoot people. And believe me, I know some people who thought just like that.

That’s it!

Spare Parts video

Spare Parts is a game developed by EA. The game tells us a story of Mar-T and Chip, who find themselves dumped out with the rubbish on a strange planet. It was supposed to come out on Xbox Live Arcade and PSN in winter 2010, but as we all know IT’S ALREADY 2011. I checked the official site and it said “coming soon”, so the game is not out yet. Looks a little bit ordinary, but here, check it out yourselves.

Dead Space 2 – story trailer

Dead Space 2 is a sequel to Dead Space. It’s a horror third-person shooter game. According to wikipedia.com, it is set to release on January 25, 2011. This trailer tries to explain the story:

NBA 2K11 – Xbox360

Can you handle it?

TIME PLAYED – 50h

First basketball game on my Xbox.  I’ve played 2k10 on my PC and as far as i can tell – 2k11 on xbox is a lot better. The graphics look neater, the game sucks you more in and you don’t get so annoyed anymore due to stupid passes and so on. I’ve played “My player” the most and i really like it. You have different goals every game to achieve and it makes your game better. Thanks to all these drills you have while using “My player” mode your overall playing skill also gets better because you learn new things and learn how to use them. The commentary gets repetitive and the soundtrack aswell. The  good thing about the soundtrack is that even if you don’t listen to that kind of music it doesn’t annoy you because you have so many other things to think about while playing. The controls are good, but while doing the slam dunk competition, the controls are hard to learn. Also the 3-point contest is easy. Online multiplayer works and is pretty good. You can earn extra skill points for your player in “My player” mode if you play online against another person. After winning the playoffs in “My player” mode, the visit to the White House was awesome, but there wasn’t much of a celebration after winning the title.  Overall you just can’t hate the game if you nail a buzzerbeater or perform an amazing dunk. I really haven’t used the retro things in the game so i can’t tell more about that.
