The new patch will include the following: a new region called, Limo Desert, level cap increased to 62, new gear, and of course many new quests. There will also be a new dungeon called Kawak's Tomb that will be deep under the sands of Limo Desert.

There will also be a new public battle that will be begin in this patch as known as the Yasheedee Catastrophe, and will be available across all servers. In this new battle you will have to conquer over some aggressive foes in a four phase fight. The first phase of the fight you must use special ropes to capture a horde of nasty worm like creatures. The second phase will challenge you to put as many Resonance Stones as possible in the right place (The more stones the easier it is in the later phases). Then in the third fight you will face a boss called Hardskin Yasheedees and for the fourth phase you fill fight Crimson Devourer, which is a very hard boss.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam is a digital expansion pack for BFBC2. This new expansion will bring Vietnam to your screen as 4 new maps are coming along with a whole new set of weapons.

Well thats one of many new, or old, weapons your going to be able to use in this expansion. You will also be getting six new vehicles to shoot, bomb, and run over your enemies including the American Huey helicopter and the Russian T54 tank. There will be a total of 15 Vietnam era weapons to use while your listening to your 60's rock and roll music in the game.

This expansion will be a exciting one and I assure you I will not be missing it.

21 Pro: Blackjack

21 Pro Blackjack is available for the itouch/iphone. 21 Pro Blackjack is the most professional and clean looking blackjack game for the itouch I've seen so far. There are 3 different tables to join each getting higher in cash making the game much more fun than alot of the other Blackjack games out there. The game even lets you continue from where you last left off when you closed the app so its like you can actually keep all the cash you made. There is a free version of the game so if your into Blackjack you can't miss this game, there is no better Blackjack app then this one in the app store.

Under worlds is and RPG for the itouch/iphone. This game can be called a portable Diablo or a Diablo clone, whatever you want to call it, its simply amazing. For anyone who likes Diablo or loves, this is a must buy. There are countless amounts of armor and weapons the gain through out the game and different abilities to upgrade. You start the game killing a few rats which seems boring at first but you'll soon find yourself pitting you skills against, to say the least, a very bad person. I found myself playing for hours because there is just so much to do and I especially love the graphics, no they aren't good, there more like...outdated. Which is what makes it so fun, if you've played Diablo you'll feel right at home and probably won't have much trouble falling in love with it. There are some things they should do to maybe a sequel or update however. A 2-4 player co-op would make the game a must buy and hopefully adding a longer story as the you could probably beat the game in a day if you have the time to. One more thing is to make the controls a bit easier to use, I don't have much of a problem with them but a few people here and there feel its a bit clumsy.

There is a free version of the app if you want to try it out and I recommend you do because you will be buying  the full game and luckily its only for 99 cents!

Dragon Age II

Dragon Age II is the second in the Dragon Age series made by BioWare. With a new story there will be plenty more adventures to go through and many gore filled thrills. Hopefully this will follow in the success of  Dragon Age Origins as it was big hit. If you've seen the trailer, you are probably as excited about it as I am and can't wait. I'll write a review when it comes out but as for now you can check out the website for more information about the game. Also if you haven't played the first Dragon Age then you should go ahead and check that out too its a great game and it'll help you understand the story and get you prepared for DAII.

PS3 New Movie Streaming Service

Sony and VUDU have made it official that PS3 users will have access to the VUDU app (which is free) on the PlayStation Store beginning  next week.

But what is VUDU?
VUDU is a pay-as-you-go HD streaming service. It has movies released on the same day as the DVD/ Blu-ray for many popular films. You do not have to download any of the movies as it is all streamed to your PlayStation and you don't have to go through those buffering times when watching something on it. It is also one of the few streaming services that offers full 1080p HD films with Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 surround sound. You can choose to rent or buy movies, with the price ranging from $1.99 to $19.99.
So in other words its kind of like netflix.

Radiant is a 2-D retro styled strangely familiar game for the iTouch and iPhone. It's played using two simple controls, just touching the left or right side of the screen. You're playing as a spaceship and automatically fire since there isn't an easy way to move left and right annnd press fire. Its alot like the good ol' Space Invaders but more up to date, and they had to good sense to keep the pixelated graphics which everybody loves. A few things I don't like though is the beginning is pretty slow and takes a while to get some good action going. You have to wait until you can get upgrades too which you have to buy when you get to a part in the game thats lets you shop. They should at least make it so every once and a while some upgrade will come from a killed enemy and last for a few seconds. Other then that it's a great game and its free so you should give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wii

I'm sure we've all heard of the new Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, but this one took me by surprise. A new Ghost Recon is being released only for the Wii and Psp. This is the first one coming out for the Wii and as expected; its not the best looking thing there is. Though it does look fun for a Wii shooter no one can really expect a shooter on the Wii to be amazing as you would on the 360 or Ps3. I haven't even heard of this title untill today and its coming out this month, November. The game is in no way connected to the next title: Future soldier, as far as I know. It seems pretty simplified so that it can work out right for the Wii and thats the problem with many Wii games in the first place. From what I've seen, it's just another "shoot 'em up" game like many of the classic arcade games that are released for the Wii already. I don't think i'll be picking this one up but if your a Wii gamer this might interest you, unfortunately for other the gamers on the 360 and Ps3, this just won't interest them especially since Black Ops just came out a while ago. In my opinion this is being released at the wrong time and won't be a big hit. BUT I haven't played it so this is all from what I've seen and I can be completely wrong about this game.
So if you do what to know more about it you can check it out here.

New Assassins Creed Brotherhood trailer

Heres a new trailer for Assassins Creed Brotherhood. It looks sick and you'll be seeing many of the famous Leonardo da Vinci's inventions in the game that will aid you in your battles. Theres also some familiar inventions from the last game Assassins Creed II that you will be seeing. I don't know about you but I'm going to be picking this one up because I'm a huge fan of the series and it looks like it just gets better and better especially with the new addition of multiplayer. Assassins Creed Brotherhood comes out November 16, only 4 days from now.

Runes Of Magic Review

Runes Of Magic (RoM) is a free to play MMORPG made by Frogster. I've been playing RoM for a while now and I have to say its definitely one of the best F2P MMORPG's I've gone through, and I've been through alot. One of the many things I like is the dual class system, this allows you to level to 10 and then you can pick another class as your "secondary class." So you can be a Knight shooting fireballs, but the only flaw is that a few classes use mana and share the same "mana pool" resulting is quick draining of your mana. The graphics are pretty decent but I could care less in this case because the game is very fun and you can play for hours without noticing the time passing. One of the flaws that I have the most problems with is the constant ganking by higher leveled players. By level 15 your the freshmeat and prey to the highest level player there is and that can get very annoying. There is no way to get a mount without paying real money so getting ganked can be very stressful when you spawn far away from you previous spot. Over all RoM will be one of the best free MMO's you come across and you can check it out here on their site.

World of Warcraft: Cataclysm Trailer

9000 BC

9000 BC is a tower defense type game. So far I've been playing only the free version but it's a great game and its very addictive. 9000 BC's art style is very unique and colorful. The game looks like it's a cave painting with simple and ancient looking beasts and monsters. You play as what looks like, well, someone from 9000 BC! Wearing nothing but a orange loin cloth as far as I can see. Enemies come from the right of the screen and you have to use spears to take them down, but thats not all. As you kill enemies you get shells which you can spend on health, monstrous allies, and even elements given to you by the gods for help. You can feed the dead to a volcano and when its full you can press down on it have it spew lava to destroy your enemies or make a cloud shoot lighting randomly on to the field. There are a lot more powers but being that I have only the free demo I don't know much about the rest. 9000 BC is available on the iTouch/iPhone and I recommend you try out the free version and see if you want to pay for the full version.

You can check out the games site here.
