Blizzard’s has been breached!

by Dude - on Aug 10th 2012 - No Comments

The popular website that handles the online for games like Starcraft 2, Diablo 3 and World of Warcraft has apparently been breached. Although according to Blizzard, there’s no evidence that suggest the loss of financial data, Blizzard is urging those of you that play WOW and the other games to update password information. This applies to accounts in North America, Latin America, Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia. Below you can read more detailed information on how this happened courtesy of a post made by Blizzard.

Some data was illegally accessed, including a list of email addresses for global users, outside of China. For players on North American servers (which generally includes players from North America, Latin America, Australia, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia) the answer to the personal security question, and information relating to Mobile and Dial-In Authenticators were also accessed. Based on what we currently know, this information alone is NOT enough for anyone to gain access to accounts.

We also know that cryptographically scrambled versions of passwords (not actual passwords) for players on North American servers were taken. We use Secure Remote Password protocol (SRP) to protect these passwords, which is designed to make it extremely difficult to extract the actual password, and also means that each password would have to be deciphered individually. As a precaution, however, we recommend that players on North American servers change their password. Please click this link to change your password. Moreover, if you have used the same or similar passwords for other purposes, you may want to consider changing those passwords as well.

by Dude - on Jun 5th 2012 - No Comments

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 was shown at E3 and if you watched the Microsoft press conference you probably know a lot of the new details that have been revealed. One of the details for Black Ops 2 is that downloadable content is going as usual to the XBOX 360, which means PS3 and PC owners will have to wait. In the video up top you can see the full gameplay for the Los Angeles single player mission, which is entitled Protect P.R.O.T.U.S Mission.

The other cool thing about the gameplay video up top is that you get to see the the unmanned drones that have been turned against us by our enemy. Speaking of the enemy in the video they mentioned Raul Menendez, but not much else was said about him.

Anyways watch the video up top and enjoy this early E3 Gameplay COD Black Ops 2.

Black Ops 2 – The things you should know

by Dude - on May 8th 2012 - 1 Comment

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 was officially announced a couple of days ago and if you are a fan of the first person shooter, you will probably want to know of the details. If you follow our site, you probably saw the official reveal trailer that looks amazing and from the looks of things, Black Ops 2 will most likely sell more copies than Modern Warfare 3. Since this is a new Call of Duty, we thought that you should know some of the confirmed details on this much anticipated sequel.

It is obvious that Black Ops 2 is going to have a single-player campaign as well as multi-player & even zombies, which Treyarch and Black Ops is known for. Below are all of the details that we were able to dig up for you Call of Duty fans worldwide.

As as sequel to the original Black Ops, this game is going to be set in 2025, but the story will jump from late 1980’s to 2025. In the late 1980’s you experience the ending of the Cold War and in 2025 the United States is in some sort of conflict with China. At this point, China owns most of the world’s resources and that’s one of the main factors that creates static between both of the superpowers. There is also some sort of  conflict going on as the villain will be Raul Menendez, who is responsible for the conflict between these big superpowers.

The whole story is going to be narrated by Retired Sgt. Frank Woods, who was also seen talking in the reveal trailer. Below is a before and after photo of him.

In the 2025 part of the single-player story you take the role of David Mason, who happens to be the son of Alex Mason from the previous Black Ops. In the late 1980’s part of the story will be played by Alex Mason and certain parts of Central America will be seen in the game, so that’s probably the reason that there are horses in the trailer. The whole story is going to connect with Raul Menendez, who is responsible for pitting the Chinese and US governments against each other. Menendez also hacked the US’ unmanned drones and unleashed an attack on Los Angeles by putting our weapons against each other.

Other facts

  • There is going to be a female soldier in the game by the name of Anderson.
  • David Mason is going to to have a sidekick named Nelson.
  • Drones are going to be controllable in combat and will play an essential role.
  • There will be horses and horse-back riding in the game similar to Uncharted 3.
  • Vehicle segments are back and in one of the missions you will get to pilot a VTOL airship.
  • You will have choices in Black Ops 2 with different outcomes.
  • Popular features such as create-a-class, killstreaks might be taken away in this new game.
  • All of the multi-player will be on maps for the year 2025, but chances are that dlc will bring older maps.
  • The graphics will look better than Black Ops number one.
  • David Mason is going to have the call sign and that is: Section.
  • There will be at least one female protagonist in the game.
  • In 2025 there is a woman for a president and she will appear in the L.A. Mission.
  • There is a new game mode called “Strike Force”.

That’s all for now people, but continue to check with us as more details come our way. If you didn’t see the official reveal trailer you can see it below.


Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 might be coming soon!

by Dude - on Apr 22nd 2012 - 1 Comment

Those of you that happen to be fans of a little game called Call Of Duty will soon learn that a future COD might be coming our way. It all started with rumors that suggested a Call of Duty: Eclipse, which could in fact be the codename for Black Ops 2. This of course has not been confirmed by either Activision or Treyarch, but if you visit the Call of Duty website you will notice that they have changed the homepage and added the following:

Call of Duty
World Reveal
Tune in May 1st
Basketball Playoffs on TNT

With Call of Duty: Black Ops doing as good as it did, this was something that everyone sort of expected. It would be interesting to find out on May 1st. Keep checking with us as more details come our way. You can also see a screencap below in case that Activision takes it away.

The Amazing Spider-Man swinging back to an open-world NYC as an epilogue to the movie

by Dude - on Dec 7th 2011 - No Comments

Next year we’ll be getting two versions of The Amazing Spider-Man: One will be the Spider-Man movie reboot from Marc Webb, while the other will be the video game movie tie-in from Beenox (Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, Spider-Man: Edge of Time).

According to a press release (via Joystiq), The Amazing Spider-Man game will be released alongside the movie, taking place after the events of the film. Being written by Hollywood writer Seamus Kevin Fahey (Battlestar Galactica), the game will once again have Spider-Man web-slinging all over an open-ended New York City, this time complete with a new “Web Rush” mechanic and improved navigation and combat.

We’ll be able to catch a new trailer for the game at Spike TV’s Video Game Awards airing this Saturday at 8 p.m. EST/5 p.m. PST. In the meantime, you can swing your way over to the game’s official website which says the game will out for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DS.

6000 Copies of Modern Warfare 3 were stolen!

by Dude - on Nov 6th 2011 - No Comments

It seems like video games these days are becoming as valuable as televisions and other hot items out there. According to reports there have been 6000 copies of Modern Warfare 3 stolen over in Crétei, which is  south Paris, France. It is estimated that the theft will cost Activision approximately 400.000 Euros and will probably disrupt shipments in that region. As you may know Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will be coming out on November 8, which is only two days away.

Call of Duty Elite: See the Behind the Scenes

by Dude - on Oct 24th 2011 - No Comments

Call of Duty Elite is the technically the social network behind current and future COD games and in the video below you get to see what it is that you will be getting if you decide to use it. Personally I think it’s a great concept as there is a free version of the service and if you get into. For those really hardcore fans out there, Elite has a paid subscription service as well that will give you access to all future DLC  that may become available.

Let us compare the Battlefield 3 & Modern Warfare Launch trailers!

by Dude - on Oct 23rd 2011 - No Comments

With the launching of Battlefield 3 just hours from now and one lucky winner being announced tomorrow, we thought that the least we could do is compare the two launch trailers to see what’s best in our opinion. Looking through the votes on our Modern Battlefield contest it seems like most of our readers voted in favor of Modern Warfare 3.

Battlefield 3 Launch Trailer: Loser

After looking at the official trailer and playing the open beta for BF3 I can admit that Battlefield feels different. In the trailer you get to see some of the single player campaign action and being that this is probably going to be the most technological advanced of the series we’ll have to wait and see how the actual game feels. In the open beta we didn’t get to fly jets and that was one of the major problems of it’s predecessor controlling the jets and helicopter was a bit challenging. While looking at the trailer what sold us was the MH-6 Little Bird helicopters as it brought great memories of Desert Combat the mod for Battlefield 1942.


Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Trailer: Winner

What really sells a Call of Duty game is it’s incredibly awesome storyline and a perfect multi-player. The trailer below really blew us away and will probably do the same for you especially if you follow Modern Warfare. If we had to pick from the two trailer the winner in our opinion is the Modern Warfare 3 launch trailer. The only thing though is that with MW3 chances are that gamers will be disappointed, being that the story line will probably be very short.


In case you didn’t know if you are an email subscriber  or a Twitter follower you are automatically entered to win either of the games, so you might hear from us tomorrow if you won the current giveaway. The great thing about the contest is that you get to choose from the two and if you want Modern Warfare 3, well send you a copy of that’s released.
