Can we all just come to terms on this? This is a war on the level of dumb only matched by dumb wars like Donald Trump vs Rosie O’ Donnell, Pokemon vs Digimon, Axel Rose vs his fans, Call of Duty vs the “cool kids,” and 360 vs PS3. In all cases, each had something to bring to the table and really the war was simply a tie up of preferences and poor choices with no real winner, but a bunch of losers. Donald Trump and Rosie are insane, Pokemon was kid friendly while Digimon tended to go in a darker direction, Axel Rose is… well, insane and the fans wanted him to not be, Xbox and PS3 are both gaming systems with their equal claims to success, and Call of Duty was being shoved down the general populaces throats by Activision and we were loving it like the whores we are. There may be a few detractors from the ranks who spam Meta Critic and every forum they can, clambering to speak out against the biggest giant in all of videogamedom. Yet with the release of MW3 and its record setting $775 million in sales during the first five days, the point of the few vocal has been beaten down by the wallets of the general market.
Dice is not playing around with its first DLC for its big hit Battlefield 3. The promised free expansion that was given to consumers who bought the Special Edition of the game is more than just a map pack. It will give fans of the game 4 new maps, three new vehicles, ten new weapons, five new dog tags, five new achievements/trophies, and lastly a whole new game mode. The game mode while not exactly new, is the return of Conquest Assault which for those not familiar is a hectic version of Conquest. Conquest Assault starts with one team fully in control of every spot immediately putting one team on offensive and the other tasked to defend their territory.
Welcome back to another excited episode of Golgocast! This time around, I’ve got Chase Cutler, NamelessTed, and Mr. Pharisee, under my command and control as we discuss the goings-on in the world of games. We talk Team Bondi hissy fits, Rich’s disdain for Resident Evil, the unexpected glory of Shadows of the Damned, and much, much, more.
As always, give us a listen and subscribe below. Feel free to direct all hate mail directly to NamelessTed.
This week we feature the soothing sounds of Cory, Mr. Hawkins, Rich, and Scott, as they talk Lulzsec, Nukem’s PR nightmare, WiiU, and Battlefield’s handicapped console version. As usual, we know about -10% about what we’re talking about, and trolling abounds!
