    ‘Modern Warfare 3′ will be on Steam, use Steamworks

    Bam! Another shot was just fired in the Battlefield vs. Call of Duty fight. So, people hate the fact that Battlefield 3 isn’t going to be on Steam. Guess which game is? Valve confirmed today that Activision’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will be on Steam and use Steamworks. Excited gamers can now also pre-purchase the title before its release on November 8. If you prefer to get a tangible copy of the game, that’s going to use Steam, too, meaning that Modern Warfare 3 gets the auto-updating and Steam Achievements that many Battlefield 3 hopefuls wanted. Like I said, it’s another shot fired. And this is a war between war games that is getting increasingly dirty. Maybe stuff like Steam integration won’t make or break a title, but it sure does make some gamers think a little harder about which game they’ll purchase. Follow

    ‘Gears of War 3′ will feature a DLC season pass

    Gears of War 3 is a few weeks away from launch, but that’s not stopping Microsoft and Epic from letting us know what’s on the way. Several downloadable add-ons are coming for the game (naturally), starting in November. We don’t know exactly what those will be, aside from the fact that they’ll contain both campaign and multiplayer content, but you can “preorder” the first four by purchasing a Season Pass for 2400 Microsoft Points. Yeah, that’s $30. But apparently that’s a 33% savings compared to buying them all separately. It also includes a “Liquid Metal Weapon Set.” Gears of War 3 launches Sept. 20 in three editions — Standard ($59.99), Limited ($79.99) and Epic ($149.99). One of those comes with a lancer or something. So at least there’s that, if you’re planning to drop a Benjamin and a half on the Epic edition. Follow

    Designer brings Rapture to beautiful jewelry

    I know GamingAngels readers are always looking for unique and fashionable ways to wear our favorite hobby, gaming. Etsy is usually a great place to look because one finds the most creative items on there and usually at a great place. This week we found, Land of Rapture where gaming and fashion meet. “Geeky, curious, odd and whimsical jewellery from deep down in the nuclear bunker of one English womans mind. From a love of whimsical brass to a love of video games, it’s all here.” The necklaces are awesome (including the Portal necklace), but I love her Plasmid Brass Hairclips. Her prices are very reasonable from $12 to around $20. She doesn’t only have gaming jewelry, I saw various crests from Hogwarts. The store is full of awesome and I am probably going to order the pixel bow for myself! Follow

    Review: The Asskickers (Mac/PC)

    Rating: Not rated, but I’ll personally call it a T Players: 1-2 Genre: Beat-em-up Publisher: AGO Games Developer: AGO Games Release Date: June 30, 2011 Price: $8.99 PASS I kind of wish I could kick this game’s ass. I knew the relationship was going to be a dysfunctional one after the first few minutes. I’d selected my character (a tall, oddly-styled woman) and my difficulty level (easy), and started my journey at the local dojo. The dojo in question, by the way, was currently overrun with frat boys. Frat boys who just happened to be my enemies. Granted, this isn’t too far away from my day-to-day life. You should’ve seen the epic bar brawl I witnessed last weekend. Frat boys may indeed be a worthy enemy, but I almost start to worry about the person who made these decisions. The game itself almost seems like a caricature of someone’s real

    ‘The Binding of Isaac” may have the creepiest trailer ever

    Edmund McMillen (who you may know as part of Team Meat) has his own game coming out — The binding of Isaac. And it has a trailer now. A trailer by James Id that happens to be incredibly creepy. But at least we know that Isaac is some kind of top-down shooter now? Follow
