Just coming back from my friends house playing out the God of War 3 in PS3, just 1 word ‘Awesome’ and what else here is the review of the game, what makes this game stand out of the rest and it’s also been long time I blogged my favorite topic ‘Gaming’ being a core gamer 😉

God of WAR - 3 [KRATOS]

God of war as always received excellent review and fans alike and was the recipient of many awards, including “Game of the Year” honors, for those of you who are not so aware of this game, God of War video game for the PlayStation 2 console was released on March 22, 2005. It is an action-adventure game based on Greek mythology. God of War was developed by Sony Computer Entertainment’s Santa Monica division. It is the first installment of the God of War series of games and the second chronologically. God of War III released worldwide in March 2010, it is the fifth and final chapter in the current story arc, chronologically after God of War: Chains of Olympus, God of War, God of War: Betrayal, and God of War II. God of War III, however, will not be the last God of War game of the series.

God of War 3 as better looking textures, and overall gameplay. “Graphically, God of War 3 has definitely come a long way since its appearance. The character models and shadows look even more accurate and detailed, and the animation is spot on. The environments are dynamic and feel alive, and the superb art direction definitely makes this a sight to behold. While the framerate has been slowed down a bit from the PS2 excursions, motion blur and bloom lighting help add to the cinematic style of the game. All in all, this is sure to be one of the best looking games on the system.”

God of War III picks up immediately where God of War II ended, with Kratos riding on Gaia as she and the other massive Titans climb Mount Olympus to assault the gods. Combos from previous titles also make a return as well as new combos. The number of enemies onscreen has been increased to 50 as opposed to the maximum of 15 in previous God of War installments, The game features a challenge mode, like the previous installments, called the “Challenge of Olympus”. There is also a bonus challenge mode that was included in both the Ultimate and Ultimate Trilogy Editions of the game called the “Challenge of Exile”.

God of war primary platform is PlayStation 3, for other on PC and Xbox you guys know how to get those or at least for God of War 3 PC version it will soon on the net bet me ;), Here is some average review score on this game: GameRankings –> 2.86% & Metacritic –> 93/100.

The Board Of Film Classification has slapped an ’18’ rating, so u are just lucky to grab an blu-ray disc of this game if you just turned 18 years old ;), it makes sense since I bet it is one of the most violent games i have ever played, I hope they make movie on this i can rest assure it can be a never seen box office hit….

Talking about the CGI cinematics in God of War 3 actually there is nothing much into the game itself but the in-game PS3 engine is plenty capable of blending the non-interactive sequences with the interactive, so there’s basically no difference, everything you see is 100% in-game. All camera features, including motion blur, run real-time in the cinematics and in-game.. The God of War 3 engine is a new game engine that Sony Santa Monica has built from the ground up and the the in-game graphics are created using the God of War III engine..

What else, ooh in case you don’t already know, the God of War III demo is now downloadable from PlayStation Store (http://www.playstation.com/pc/store/country-selector/). Make sure you go and get hold of it immediately, you won’t be disappointed, my bet 😉

And for those of you who haven’t yet seen it, here’s the latest demo/review where you’ll be able to see Kratos inflicting total chaos and destruction. That’s all for now, I’ll be back soon for some more news. Enjoy the Game…

Back to most loved interest, off course gaming, as we all know the vast majority of games wither quickly on the store shelves, long forgotten only months or even weeks after their release. Such is the fickle cycle of offering games to the shopping public. Other games, however—the rare, few, proud titles that become classics—enjoy life long after they seemingly should have disappeared from the public consciousness.

The list of such titles is too large to present here, but includes gems like Falcon 4.0, Freelancer, Baldur’s Gate, WarCraft III, Counter-Strike, Allegiance and many, many others. What makes games like these stand the test of time? They generate massive amounts of user loyalty via a number of routes: Excellent gameplay, ease of modding, support from the developer or publisher, and probably a host of other factors.

So lets look at 10 such games: Games that just won’t die. These are titles from times long past, especially in terms of the digital realm.

1. Diablo II
Developer: Blizzard Entertainment
Publisher: Blizzard Entertainment

null

Widely hailed as the greatest action RPG of all time, Diablo II has legions of clones and followers, but none have come close to gripping the enthusiasts as much as Blizzard’s powerhouse. You can get both Diablo II and its expansion, Lord of Destruction, plus strategy guides, event today..

2. WarCraft III
Developer: Blizzard Interactive
Publisher: Blizzard Interactive

null

It’s not pretty, with its pinkish background, but Planet Warcraft’s WarCraft III: Reign of Chaos area is full of information on Blizzard’s long-living real-time strategy. WarCraft, of course, was one of the most appealing RTS titles in the era of the original Command and Conquer and Red Alert titles. Eschewing tanks, soldiers and machineguns for orcs, axes and arrows, it mixed clever humor into the RTS world and saw instant success.

3. Battlefield 1942
Developer: Digital Illusions (better known as DICE)
Publisher: Electronic Arts

null

When you think of DICE’s amazing Battlefield games, often one concept comes to mind:
Desert Combat. Widely considered the greatest mod for any of the Battlefield games (which include Battlefield 1942, Battlefield 2, Battlefield 2142, and expansion packs), this BF1942 mod is stunning to play.

4. MechWarrior 4: Mercenaries
Developer: FASA Studio
Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios

null

Mech games haven’t been the same since MechWarrior 4: Mercenaries. The BattleTech franchise fizzled after its release, though it should be noted that Smith and Tinker, a company founded by FASA pioneer Jordan Weisman, bought up all of the rights to FASA IPs from Microsoft. The latter’s MekPak 3 features more than a score of new mechs, new weapons, new maps, and lots of other goodies to keep the dream alive.

5. People’s General
Developer: SSI
Publisher: SSI

null

The news page of the People’s General site hasn’t been updated since 2002. You can, however, still get the game and a number of mods at the link above. Note that most of the links at the site linked above are dead, but the downloadable are still available yup for free… Each of the downloadables you’ll find contain links to a number of scenarios and campaigns from the US Civil War to World War II and more—just jump in and start playing

6. StarCraft
Developer: Blizzard Entertainment
Publisher: Blizzard Entertainment

null

It’s StarCraft; what more is there to say about it? Blizzard overhauled the languishing RTS genre with this amazing sci-fi magnum opus. Instead of featuring two or three mostly-similar races, it went way out on a limb and made the factions extremely different: the Terrans, Protoss and Zerg require unique thinking to master. Some observers, however, have noted the curious resemblance to some of the races from Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000 universe.

7. Fallout
Developer: Interplay Productions
Publisher: Black Isle Studios

null

Fallout isn’t Fallout 3. The original is a top-down RPG with very few action elements. While the two share the same funky, post-apocalyptic spirit, the original still has a number of loyal followers. We tracked one down and chatted via IRC to find out why, oh why, would you still play the old, graphically inferior original when Bethesda’s masterpiece is so popular?

8. Baldur’s Gate (and BG2)
Developer: BioWare
Publisher: Interplay

null

The Infinity Engine, a top down RPG engine that was the basis for many a game in years past, remains hugely popular. Forget Neverwinter Nights 2; some players still feel the Baldur’s Gate series is the pinnacle of role playing on the PC, period. If you’re still into BG or its sequel, Baldur’s Gate 2, or any of the expansions, or Icewind Dale, or what have you, you owe it to yourself to visit the Pocket Plane Group, a site dedicated to keeping the Infinity Engine alive with mods galore.

9. Freelancer
Developer: Digital Anvil / Microsoft
Publisher: Microsoft

null

Freelancer started life as an ambitious, spiritual sequel to the seminal space shooter Privateer. An oddball combination of space action game, trading and exploration, with a nod towards roleplaying. The game featured a mouse interface for flying and combat, unlike previous similar games, which usually required a joystick to be successful.

10. Mario
Developer: Nintendo EAD
Publisher: Nintendo

null

Well I am think do I need an explanation for this game, The Mario series is a series of highly popular and acclaimed video games by Nintendo, featuring Nintendo’s mascot Mario and, in many games, his brother Luigi. Gameplay in the series often centers around jumping and defeating enemies. The games usually feature simple plots; the most common theme is that of Bowser, the main antagonist, kidnapping Princess Peach, whom Mario saves and this will be a game our great grand children will continue to play…
