VGT Tech: 3D Gaming, Should It Continue?

Hey Guys, now a days most games are being made in 3D. I mean most of them look great in 3D, but think about the disadvantages. For instance, 3D TVs aren't selling that well. Why make games in 3D if there's no TV to play it on. Companies should at least wait until the sales of 3D TVs rises before making games in 3D.

Now it's easier to play games on PC, although 3D PCs and Laptops aren't cheap. So the sales for the both of these things must go up as well. But many games on PC support 3D.

Now currently the best systems to play 3D on are Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. The Nintendo 3DS doesn't work well with it's 3D in my opinion. The only games I know that probably don't support 3D are Skyrim and Battlefield 3. And that's a good thing.

I almost forgot to mention that 3D can harm your eyes. And that's scientifically proven. Which is why I don't really like 3D myself.

Battlefield 3 Sells 8 Million Copies

Hey Guys, it's been about 2 or 3 weeks since Battlefield 3. On it's first week of release it sold over 5 million copies. And this week EA revealed that Battlefield 3 has sold 8 million copies! Currently surpassing Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 3, with at least 6.5 million copies sold.

I highly recommend Battlefield 3 if you don't have it. It's a must have game this year along with Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 3. Also don't forget Limited Edition owners, Back To Karkand DLC Maps will release some time in December.

More Info On Battlefield 3's Multiplayer And Second Opinions

Hey Guys, last week when I reviewed Battlefield 3 for its multiplayer I gave it a 10. But after playing it some more, does Battlefield 3's multiplayer really deserve a 10? Also, I'm going to tell more about the multiplayer if you don't know that much about the multiplayer.

First let's talk about the classes of Battlefield 3. There are 4 available to play, Assault, Engineer, Support, And Recon.
  1. Assault- Armed with an M16A3, Assault is a great class to use. Also they could use Medkits or Defibrillators since the Medic class is mixed in with Assault.
  2. Engineer- Armed with an M4A1, an Engineer is a recommended class to use. Engineers could repair friendly vehicles and destroy enemy vehicles. And it's highly recommended to use an Engineer in the Conquest game mode since you play on enormous maps and you use mostly vehicles.
  3. Support- Armed with an M27 LMG, a Support could easily gain points if used correctly. So if you want to level up fast, be sure to use the Support, but you need to get used to it though. Also Support could use a Mortar. And it's great to have a Support on your team since they could provide Ammo. And Battlefield 3 is a fast paced game, so Ammo is your top priority.
  4. Recon- Recon has a lot of gadgets that include Motion sensors, SOFLAMS, and a Radio Beacon. But all in all, Recon is for Noobs.
Okay now on to the Multiplayer Review. Now I acclaimed the Multiplayer since it was very enjoyable, there was no lag, and it was easy to find games. Well I change my mind. I experienced lags several time, for example a car teleported while I was driving a different one. When you start anything that has to do with the online, you have to wait a while for it to load. And there is long loading times in the game. But the Multiplayer is very fun, although your most likely to get paired up by the losing team. And finally, I think Conquest is the only game mode where you can actually drive vehicles, and in Rush including Conquest you can play on Huge maps. So does Battlefield 3's Multiplayer really desreve a 10? No. I'l give it,
Multiplayer: 8
In my opinion, the Multiplayer could have been better, but it's good. And I highly recommend this game to you if you like playing any games online.

The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim Sells 3.5 Million Copies

Hey Guys, the sales numbers are in and they are average looking. And Skyrim sold over 3.5 million units on all consoles. Though, I don't think Skyrim deserved this number, it should have been bigger since it's totally going to get Game Of The Year. And the game sold 3.5 million in over two days prior of its release.

I am currently creating a Holiday Buyer's Guide soon, and Skrim is definitely on the list and be sure to read it if you need to buy a gift for loved ones.

A Look Back At Halo Main Series

Hey Guys, it's been over 10 years since the release of Halo: Combat Evolved. And when I first played it, I thought to myself for a moment. Where were these kinds of games when I was a kid, we had crappy pixel violence, and now we have advanced graphics to make the games look better. But anyway, here is the history of Halo.

1. Halo: Combat Evolved
The first Halo game that started it off, but there is no Online for the game. But Halo has a very outstanding campaign storyline.

2. Halo 2
Halo 2 is the first Halo game to support Online multiplayer. Sadly, the multiplayer servers were finally cut down due to the fact that the original Xbox Live for the original Xbox was shut down.

3. Halo 3
Halo 3 final boxshot.JPG
To this day I believe people still buy Halo 3. Halo 3 has one of the best Online multiplayer experiences, and the best campaign.

4. Halo 4 (Upcoming)
I can't wait to play Halo 4 after seeing the ending for Halo 3. But I'm really hoping to play the multiplayer, hopefully it will be improved.

There are other Halo games such as Halo Reach, Halo Wars, and Halo 3: ODST. But I'm looking at the main series. Though it's sad that Bungie is done with Halo, with Halo Reach being their last game. But 343 seems pretty good. Anyway, Halo Combat Evolved will release on November 15th at $40 dollars in the US!
Till Next Time!!

Assassin's Creed Revelations Leave Your Legacy Trailer [HD]

Another trailer for the Upcoming game, Assassin's Creed Revelations.

Call Of Duty Elite Now On Xbox Live

Hey Guys, Call Of Duty Elite is now available on Xbox Live. And for those who sign up for it, will get Two hours of Double XP for Black Ops. But I have to say that those of you who play COD on PC won't get Call Of Duty Elite on Day One. So console players will get Call Of Duty Elite first.

Call Of Duty Elite will be free, but will have limited features to it. The Premium version of Call Of Duty Elite will offer monthly downloadable content, daily competitions with virtual and real life prizes, the ability to level up your clan, pro analysis and strategies, Elite TV, and more. But this will all cost $50 bucks a year in the US.

Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 3 releases tomorrow, and if your board, be sure to pick up a copy of Battlefield 3. Which scored a 9 on the VGT score. To view the full Battlefield 3 review, click here

Battlefield 3 Review

Hey Guys, it been a week since Battlefield 3 has released. Believe it or not, it was sold out at the GameStop I usually go to. So I had to wait for a week until they restocked. But is Battlefield 3 worth the money? I paid over $70 bucks for the game!

Graphics: 7.5
I expected the graphics to be stellar and astonishing. The HD pack took over 1.5 GB for my Xbox 360 Hard drive. Which I think it wasn't worth it. The graphics shown  in the videos are totally different when you play them yourself. So, the Graphics are Average.

Gameplay: 9
Nothing really changed since the beta. I'm still confused with the whole crouching and knife issue. And I can assure you that if you play any other FPS games such as Halo and Call Of Duty, the controls can take some time to get used to. But I'm still proud on how you can see your body, instead of floating hands and a gun. You will be satisfied on the gameplay for Battlefield 3, just get used to the controls. Don't forget the sun can blind you and any other light.

Multiplayer: 9
The server browser has been added and it makes finding games easier. Lags and bugs are very common now. The follow cam helps a lot so you can get payback on the person who killed you. The maps are so huge on Conquest and Rush. But you only get vehicles in Conquest. Also, there is 24-players in a server. Get the game on PC for 64 player games.
Story: 8.5
I manged to play the story. And so far, it's ok. The plot is hard to follow to tell the truth. But the missions are great, but some are difficult. AI character are really dumb in the story. When you play the game on Hard difficulty, the game is not that hard, the AI characters are just much dumber and enemy bullets can hurt you more. So use cover when you can, and patients. You can use Vehicles in the Campaign, but they are limited and there is one mission where there is Jet combat. But you can't fly the jet. Plus the MI6 shown in the trailer for Battlefield 3 Fault Line Gameplay is different in the game, the Scope is replaced with a Red Dot sight. But overall, the story is good.

VGT Score: 9 Out Of 10
Battlefield 3 is not your Typical first person shooter. It's not a game for casual players, it falls in the Hardcore category. This game is not for everyone. But it's a great game to own, but your wanting to get this game for it's beautiful Multiplayer.

Only Ten Prestiges In MW3

Hey Guys, it was announced today that the max Prestige level will be 10. In Call Of Duty Black Ops it was only 15. But in Call Of Duty Black Ops, the max level was 50, but in Modern Warfare 3 the max level you can reach is 80. So it's going to be harder to level up now.

I could get Battlefield 3 this weekend or just wait for Modern Warfare 3 to be released. Right now I'm extremely busy with work and random life situations. So look for any Reviews coming soon
