While the release date of the highly anticipated Ghostbusters videogame has been hovering over June 16th for some time, it was only today that we received official confirmation that the mid-June date is, indeed, when the game will arrive in the US (followed three days later in Europe).
This confirmation is great news for a title that has hit many a bump in the road, including copyright and publishing issues. We're pleased as punch that copyright cleared and Atari was able to grab the game so it will be able to be released it alongside the Ghostbusters 25th Anniversary Blu-Ray DVD.
The Ghostbusters videogame was written by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, some say in lieu of a third film. The original cast, including Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson, will be starring in the title.
If you missed the first two Max Payne titles from Rockstar, then you've missed a part of gaming history. The original title, one of the first to incorporate "bullet-time" into gameplay, set the standard for first-person shooters on the last generation of consoles (Xbox, PS2, Gamecube). Not only was the gameplay new and fresh, but the use of noir storytelling devices earned critical acclaim.
Now you can download both Max Payne titles to your Xbox 360 for $15 a pop. Not a bad option for those trying to reel in spending but want a great gaming experience, nor those who want a Max Payne refresher before Max Payne 3 arrives this winter.
And, while the original game launched before we started publishing guides, we do have a fabulous Max Payne 2 Walkthrough and Strategy Guide available. Get it, access it as part of the LunaPass, which gives you access to ALL LB Game Guides for only $4.95!
Let's face it, the economy is in the crapper. You don't have $60 to spend on a new video game. And, why would you when there are so many great games out there for bargain prices?
I have assembled a list of five games which will give you hours and hours of gaming pleasure, for around $20 each.
Add in the fact that our walkthroughs go for $5.95 to $7.95, and for only $14.95, you can get a LunaPass and have access to ALL of our more than 150 walkthroughs. Now, that's value!
5. Bully and Bully Scholarship Edition
This prep school sandbox game has the mechanics and production quality of a Grand Theft Auto (both are made by Rockstar Games) but without the bloody violence. Instead, you get an engaging story with memorable characters.
In it you play as Jimmy, a troubled kid who gets sent to prep school. Your goal is to rise through the ranks of the social hierarchy, attending classes, kissing girls, and using your slingshot on the football team. Bonus: You can steal lunch money.
Far Cry 2, the new open-world first-person-shooter from Ubisoft, asks a lot of you. It's definitely not a dumbed-down game and it surely is not for beginners. It's spartan features and rigid gameplay elements make it sort of the masochist's Mercenaries 2.
The game begins with a long opening movie of you, a mercenary for hire, riding into a civil war-torn town somewhere in Africa. Out of the civil war two main factions have emerged: the Unified Front for Liberation and Labor (UFFL) and the Alliance for Popular Resistance (APR).
Because this brought up memories of the all-to-real events in Sierra Leone over a decade ago, events so hauntingly recounted in Ismael Beah's "Long Way Gone," I had to come up with my own names for them, so I got in the habit of calling them: the United Federation of Lame-o Losers and the Association of Postal Retirees. There, that feels better.
Fary Cry 2's main story arc is based upon you finding and eliminating Jackal, an arms dealer who supplies weapons for both sides of the war. This devil of a man is responsible for every bullet and every death in this war ravaged region, essentially giving you that warm fuzzy feeling for meting out justice with, well, bullets and death.
We got a nice swag pack from Ubi the other day containing a "Prince of Persia" pixel tee designed for PAX and a limited edition print of a page from the upcoming "Prince of Persia" comic by Penny Arcade.
This guide clearly walks you through each level of the game, provides spectacular boss strategies, includes ALL Bonus Objectives and ALL Holocrons. In other words, if you're looking for 100% SW: TFU completion, this is the guide for you!
Reporting earnings for its third fiscal quarter yesterday, GTA publisher Take-Two Interactive made two big announcements. First, the company announced sales for GTAIV have reached the 10 million mark. For those keeping track, that's an additional 1.5 million copies since the company's last report on May 31st.
The second Take-Two tidbit should be exciting for DS gamers, as it was also announced that GTA: Chinatown Wars, the first GTA title to hit the Nintendo handheld, will be released sometime in the first quarter of the company's 2009 fiscal year. For those who don't speak Take-Two fiscal, that means we'll see the game anywhere from November 1, 2008 to January 31, 2009.
If you're wondering if the DS title will be in stores for Holiday '08, there's no guarantee. However, I'd say that if they miss it, they'll miss the first quarter altogether and use it for a second quarter profit boost.
