Teeny Tinsy Video of Warhawk APC


warhawk_small_apc.jpgIf you don’t mind watching postage-stamp sized videos of new videogame features, then check out the link below. It shows someone driving around the new APC in the PS3 game Warhawk. This patch hasn’t been released yet, and as far as I know, no release date has been given.

The video shows off the ability for people in the APC to man turrets. It shows the fact that the APC drives faster than a tank but slower than a jeep. It has some kind of nitro speed burst thingy whose usefullness is questionable.

It also has the ability to drop an energy field that’ll make it pretty hard for the enemy to get past. Hopefully that doesn’t unbalance play too much.

This is going to be a free update, so I’m looking forward to trying it out.

Warhawk v1.3 Patch details


Sorry I didn’t mention this before, but in case you missed it, there’s a free Warhawk 1.3 patch being released soon, and it has some pretty cool stuff. Like the following:

1. Mechanic’s Field Wrench: Used to repair your own vehicles or destroy enemy vehicles.

2. Bio-Field Generator: Works like a proximity mine, but anything within its range will have health quickly regen (on your team) or deteriorate (the enemy).

3. HOME Game Launching: “Players will be able to form groups, meet in their apartments, discuss tactics, and then launch a game of Warhawk…all together!”

4. Better VOIP: Now you can go to the stats screen and mute individual players there, among other things.

5. New Paint Schemes & Insignias: New paint schemes and insignias from the contest will make their way into the patch.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed gameplay wrapped into one bundle of joy


Inside of me the hype I feel for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is slowly reaching a boiling point which hopefully will explode this summer. After so many subpar Star Wars games could this new title be a wonderful next-gen experience wrapped in Star Wars lore?

The only thing that could possibly worry me is could levitating enemies get a bit boring once the novelty has worn off?

Duel-Wielding against Dinosaurs was never this much fun!


IF you love dinosaurs and guns you might just have a love connection with the upcoming Turok title. Gaming Bits was kind enough to upload some footage of Turok from the demo which was released to people who pre-ordered the game.

Duel-Wielding and and cheesy one-liners are confirmed.
