  • GU launches third Bad Company 2 server

    GU launches third Bad Company 2 server

    We've seen high demand for space on our Bad Company 2 servers since the launch of the game - often being full all the way through any given night. Without reserve slots working as intended at this stage, it has been frustrating getting a spot at times.

    Community member Korny has made a hefty contribution, deciding to replace that hurt with an extra 32 chances of playing, in the form of a third server! At the moment it's setup as Conquest, but if there's an overwhelming vote for Rush we'll happily change it.

    It's now listed in the website header, where you can keep an eye on who's playing in which server. And because #3 won't be in anyone's favorites or history lists quite yet, it's probably the one to go to if you're heading in with a big crew. GLHF!...

    Bad Company 2 patch reaches Steam

    It took a couple days, but the recently talked about Bad Company 2 patch has finally been rolled out to Steam users. The patch addresses a heap of minor bugs most of us have never noticed, and doesn't move to improve the user interface or fix any of the gameplay issues people are having. Enjoy!...

    Metro 2033 now available!

    It's out, and I'd have already purchased it if it weren't for the $79.99 USD Steam price. Reviews across the world are delivering scores between 80 and low 90's. It looks like one to get, be it now, or when on sale if you're the patient...

  • Long term Bad Company 2 commitment from DICE

    Long term Bad Company 2 commitment from DICE

    In an article at IGN, we've received the promise that DICE is "definitely" committed to supporting Bad Company 2, for a long time. The key, of course, being a long time. This is a refreshing statement, given the growing trend of disregarding a predecessor to make way for its sometimes less popular sequel. DICE had much more to say, all reassuring - especially for PC gamers. Karl Magnus Troedsson, Executive Producer at DICE had this to say......

  • Bungie to revive Marathon?

    Bungie to revive Marathon?

    Marathon is relatively easy to forget amidst other classic shooters such as Wolfenstein and Doom, but it was a landmark title that continues to lead a massive following. Rumors surfaced in 2007 of Bungie reviving the title and pushing forward with a modern remake, yet not much more has been said since. Until now, that is. Bungie have re-registered the Marathon trademark, as of today. Keep your eyes and ears peeled, as we might just get a related announcement sometime this year....

  • Hunted: The Demon's Forge returns to classic dungeon crawling

    Hunted: The Demon's Forge returns to classic dungeon crawling

    I'm hardly a knowledge in the realm of MUDs or RPGs, and would probably still strongly dislike fantasy if it wasn't for Neverwinter Nights and The Lord of The Rings film adaptations. So, with my inexperience and shallow understanding in mind, I may be completely off the mark when I say inXile Entertainment's new IP looks freaking awesome - but I'm saying it anyway......

  • GU t-shirt idea competition

    GU t-shirt idea competition

    As most of you are now aware, our Cafe Press merchandise store is now in full swing. For those of you who've already purchased goods, be sure to post some pictures unless you're the camera shy type, or a short Irishman with a Guinness belly (that's you, Reslo).

    Anyway, as cool as it is to have a shirt with the GU logo on it, I'm sure you would love to see a bigger range to choose from. This is where you, the community, come into it. I'm after ideas for interesting and hopefully unique ideas. Examples might be similar to some of the nifty gaming shirts seen around the web, such as the evolution of man meeting an arcade cabinet or the "down, corner, right + punch" Hadouken Street Fighter shirts. How about a deformation of the GU logo - similar to what Blues News once did with their site logo on a regular basis?

    It could simply be a witty games related slogan, or something that represents what is quintessentially for you. Perhaps a picture of Hitler with Paladin's face super-imposed (our self-appointed Spell-Nazi), or that decade-old photo of me with a bowl cut gone wrong that never seems to disappear.

    You can suggest ideas in the comments of this article or a private message to me, or if you're feeling especially creative you can provide artwork for the print. The best suggestions will become purchasable items in the GU store - and if your idea gets in, you get a shirt featuring it for free. Additionally, the very best will also have a Steam game of their choice gifted to them.

    Get your thinking caps on, and get those ideas in. You've got until March 31st! ...

  • NBA JAM debut trailer

    NBA JAM debut trailer

    I remember spending countless hours playing at Hindley Street arcades in Adelaide, long gone thanks to modern consoles and broadband internet (oh, and crime). Downtown, Timezone Meridian, Twilight Zone, The Tilt. One of my favourite games was NBA JAM, which etched phrases such as "from downtown" and "he's on fire" into my mind forever. Well, for those who didn't know, the classic title has been revitalised and is on its way to a re-release. A debut trailer has been produced showing off some of the gameplay for your viewing pleasure. It seems to be a faithful reincarnation - justice has been done....

  • Mass Effect 3 review
    by cmdr_lynchie
    The first two instalments of the Mass Effect series are widely considered to be some of the best games ever made. Certainly they rank among the greatest RPGs. With the outstanding quality of their story telling, and their stunning audio and visuals, they set the bar so high for the third instalment that some began to wonder if disappointment was inevitable. Thankfully the doubters have been proven wrong, as with Mass Effect 3 Bioware has not only cleared the bar, but they raised it several not...
