Okay, you know I like Counter Strike as much as the next first-person shooter gamer, but Global Offensive is basically a minor revamping to the other Counter Strike installments. Don't get me wrong: I love running around and laying waste to enemies, but I'm not sure if this is just another baby step taken by Valve.
The title Machine Gun Preacher pretty much explains the whole movie. Gerard Butler plays Sam Childers as someone who got out of jail and was still a troublemaker. One day he opens his eyes to religion, causing him to go on an epic crusade of his own.
If you like Liam Neeson, here's another movie to put up the wall for him: The Grey. I'm still wondering why he has been doing all these action-type movies, especially at the age of 60. That just goes to show you: older people can still kick a lot of ass.
Over thirty years ago the Atari 2600 released a game that was one of the first four-player co-op titles to be put out for a home console: Warlords. In it you and your friends had to protect your forts from one another via a movable shield while a Pong-like ball flew towards your area. Now in 2012 Atari has remade the game for the PSN and Xbox Live Arcade, having it take place in medieval times and adding a few extras to the gameplay.
I am a bit of a sucker for music-based gaming; not stuff like Rock Band or DJ Hero, but rather titles likes Space Invaders: Infinity Gene and Audiosurf that take music and create it into a different art form. Sound Shapes, released back in August, takes the side-scrolling platformer genre and gives it a melodious twist, all with the help of some big-named artists.
