Battlefield 3 is what EA/DICE promises will change the face of shooters forever.  Huge maps and insane vehicular warfare all running on its new "Frostbite 2" engine.

As a result of all the awards it was winning and all the footage showed, I was excited.  I soon played the "beta" on Xbox 360 and hopes diminished quickly, is this all EA has behind it? I was a fool to doubt Modern Warfare 3.

Listening to some friends, and hearing about a HD texture pack, I gambled on it being better than what it showed in the beta and took a leap of faith into a series I have never experienced before.  See if Battlefield 3 sinks or swims.

Real Steel was a very awesome movie.  I'm not one to see movies much, but the trailers caught my interest.  After watching it I fell in love, especially because I love boxing (the anime "Hajime no Ippo" helped tremendously).  I was hyped as soon as I found out there would be an XBLA game.

Getting in contact with Yukes, I knew I had to get this game for review for you guys.  I'm going to cover what this fighting game is all about, and see if it can deliver the experience from the movie right to the comfort of our own Xbox 360.

Hit the jump below to check out the full article on Real Steel for Xbox Live Arcade.

Bejweled is a puzzle sensation that everyone has heard of, with games being able to be played across all platforms as well as practical social networking sites like FaceBook.

Bejeweled 3 is the third installment and plans to take it a step further.  Being relatively new to the series, I am going to be sure to stress every detail about this for any newcomers like myself.

PopCap has chosen to bring this highly demanded game to the Xbox 360 Arcade Marketplace, and I'm here to see if it worth the effort to do so, and if it is worth the time to you, the gamer.

Looking back, I've noticed something peculiar that seems trending in anime; Women who have a male who would give their lives for them and hold phenomenal power, while they themselves would be unable to retaliate if they actually turned against them, yet still talk to them as if they were lapdogs.

I plan on explaining what I mean by talking about Kokonoe and Iron Tager's relationship from BlazBlue and Sir Integra Fairbrook Windgates Hellsing and Alucard's from Hellsing.  I figure a deeper look at what is going on there will clear up some things I notice about this fad.

Despite its nature, I do find it a bit refreshing to see woman in the commanding position.

Far too many times in gaming have I seen people complain about how their opponent plays.  Not that they are using an insanely overpowered character (Broken), using a mod to exploit the game, or even a known problem the developers missed  and will update to fix (Universally accepted  broken glitches); they choose to complain solely because their opponent chooses to play the game differently than they do.

In this article, I want to explain why people should respect the varying play styles that are present in gaming; be it aggressive, defensive, adaptive, or even nonsensical and non-ethic.  There is only one rule in gaming: Win.  So be a Pro, not a Scrub.

With the final iteration of Gears of War (at least within the main series) Gears 3 wanted to help new players to the series not feel overwhelmed by the wall-bouncing Gnasher shotgun experts that have honed their skills in the last two games.  However, did Epic go too far?

In this article, I want to tell you why I believe that Epic made this move and why this gun is really over powered.   I also want to say what I believe this game will evolve into if this is not dealt with.  That is, ruin the online multi-player experience in Epic's most polished Gears of War game and actually make it the laughing stock of the community, if it has not done so already.

I plan on converting the details of what's going on in more detail inside.  So why don't you go ahead and hit the JUMP and find out what's in store for all of you?
