"Everybody Was Kung-Fu Fighting"

Everyone loves the Grand Theft Auto from Rockstar, however at the moment none of the GTA games are available on any Nintendo consoles. So, when developers Rockstar thought about expanding the increasingly popular franchise, what better way to do it than to create a GTA for the Nintendo DS? With just under a month before the game in question (Grand Theft Auto:Chinatown) is released it's only natural that Rockstar released this trailer. Have a look below.

Why not pre-order GTA:Chinatown Wars from Amazon?

Do You Remember?

A couple of days I wrote a post about some Mass Effect DLC that BioWare has indevelopment. Well ,it has ocme to light that downloadable content is not in fact, the only thing the sneaky developer has up its sleeves. Earlier today, a teaser trialer was on the web for, dare I say it, Mass Effect 2. This unfortunately short video reveals a snippet of indirect information regarding the future of some certain characters and a possible plotline. To see what I mean watch the video below.

Not yet played Mass Effect? Why not buy it from Amazon?

Mass Effect or Pass Effect? Would you rather pass up on M.E or play it? Say which one in the comment box below.

It Really Is Perfection!

Right now Sony's Official PLayStation Blog a little picture of a Helghan soldier on the right hand side will tell you that Killzone 2 has one more week until release (or deployment, as stated on the blog) and with this subtle reminder as bait for a larger, much anticipated release date fish, it's kinda difficult to forget KZ2. I know that when high-profile releases such as Killzone 2 come this close to being on shelves me, along with many, many PS3 owning gamers will be sitting at the edge of our seats with closed eyes and clasped hands praying for the day (27th February 2009) to arrive. So when the developers of the game in question, Guerilla released this ad for the game the entire gaming world went nuts.

Everyone loves a bit of zombie action in the afternoon (not that kind of action) and with the release of Resident Evil 5 only 3 weeks around the corner it's no wonder that the whole gaming world has become infected with the survival-horror game virus. If you are not yet Resi 5 crazy (that sounds unrealistic just typing it!) or if you simply want to fuel your wnating of the game, view the brand spanking new Resident Evil 5 trailer from Capcom, the creative geniuses behind the Resi games.

Activision Blizzard, (AKA Acti-Blizzle) the pioneers behind the epic MMORPG World Of Warcraft have announced details for this years highly anticipated Blizz-con. For those of you who don't know what 'Blizzcon' is, it's basically a W.O.W-fest where World Of Warcraft players from every corner of the globe can unite. Don't be fooled though. Although W.O.W is by far the developer's greatest success the event will make way for news regarding upcoming Acti-Blizzle games too. For a full list of Blizzcon info just scroll down a little bit.

The date - this years Activision Blizzard Convention will take place on - Friday 21st August '09 till Saturday 22nd August '09.

The place - Anaheim Convention Centre's where it's at.

What's in store - a panel of Blizzard peeps will be on hand to talk about what they do best!

Tournaments - prove yo' skill homie!
Demos - get all hands-on at Blizzcon. Too much though and you'll get slapped with a restraining order.
News - find out about Acti-Blizzle's latest projects.
There will be an auction plus a place to get A.B merchandise.

Notice that I didn't mention anything about tickets. This is because Activision Blizzard haven't released anything about the cost of tickets or the amount of tickets that will be available. However if you keep checking SFN there will be information about tickets as soon as they announce it.

New to the MMORPG crowd? Why not snag yourself the MMORPG, World Of Warcraft and its add-on Wrath of the Lich King from Amazon?

Get Lost With A Friend

With only a few hours to go until the release of the GTA IV downloadable content(DLC to us nerdy folks) I felt that it was necessary for us all to indulge in a bit of Lost and Damned gossip.

So we all know that this additional content is going to be awesome but the question is this, do we know why? Well here's a good enough reason. Motorbikes aside it has recently come to light that alongside the additional missions that Lost and Damned provides, Rockstar have also included quite a few upgrades for the multiplayer modes too. The developer has come up with the same ol' , same ol' biker blended improvements for the modes that were already included with the game. However System Fail News can tell you a few deets about a brand spanking new multiplayer mode included with the DLC.
The new mode in question is called Chopper v Chopper which translates as this; Dude 1 on a motorbike, Dude 2 in a chopper. Dude 2's aim, shoot the poop out of Dude 1 like a bowl of prunes. Dude 1's aim BIKE LIKE HELL!

Not got GTA IV? Why not buy it from Amazon?Or get Lost and Damned!

More Mass Effect!

Boy, will you be happy when you read (and watch) this!

During my daily comb through of the usual internet trash, I stumbled upon an unusual sparkly gem regarding the future of sci-fi shoot 'em up Mass Effect. According to a video interview of the project designer and lead designer for the game which can be found on the second disc of the platinum edition of the game, the developers, Bioware are working on indeed planning what we've all hope for.

More Mass Effect DLC!

Yeah, you read right. Bioware have even more Mass Effect DLC lined up for us.
Don't believe me? Peep the video below.

BTW DaBigDragon apologises for the quality of the video.

Why not buy Mass Effect from Amazon?

Thats A Lot A Downloads!

Wowza! I've been reading loads of reports all over the internet about the huge sccess that the Halo Wars Demo is having! According to statistics the demo received well over 2 million downloads on its first day on the Xbox Live Arcade (XBLA if you're nasty!)The demo now holds the record for the most downloaded demo from the XBLA after surpassing the earlier record set by Resident Evil 5 which stood at 1.8 million downloads. I for one am flabbergasted (nice word huh?) at the huge popularity the game is having. Though as its a game from the notorious Halo franchise it's not that surprising. Congratulations to the developers Ensemble (who recently went into administration) SFN hopes that Halo War does just as well (if not better) when the full version of the game is released on the 3rd of March 2009

Here's a thought. Wy not pre-order Halo Wars from Amazon?
