New MW3 game modes!

Robert Bowling, Community man reveals on twitter that new MW3 game modes are coming!

‘Ready for new game modes for Modern Warfare 3’ he asks to the public. ‘I’ve go some surprises for you for the weekend. I’ll confirm full details tomorrow’

The new game modes could be anything but for now all we can do is sit and wait like excited little boys. It’s like an early Christmas present!

The Xbox Dashboard update came out yesterday as many of you will be aware. Already there are many problems like the inability to connect to Xbox Live.  The most serious of these problems are broken consoles. If you have a complant about the new update head to the Xbox status page.

In my opinion the new update looks sleek, it offers a new tonne of stuff and it really separates it form the Sony’s PSN system. I really like it and I really thought i wouldn’t. What do you think? And have you had any problems? Leave your answer in the comments:

Minecraft Lego?

”Seeing Lego Minecraft set is also our dream… Minecraft is about placing blocks to anything you can imagine in the virtual world. You can build anything you can imagine with Lego bricks in the Physical world. Minecraft and Lego were meant to be together.” Mojang revealed about a Minecraft Lego range idea. They invited some Lego fans behind previous Lego ideas to help with the designs.

”AS the Official Minecraft Lego Project, we will work with the Lego Group to secure a licensing agreement and donate 1% royalty from Lego Cuusoo to charity”

As you can see it looks more like an idea at the moment but I can’t wait till I get to build a Lego Creeper! Ssssssuper!

This fun, light hearted seasonal app is free and quite addictive! You build mushroom houses for you’re Smurfs to move into and then you create plots of land to grow crops. In growing these crops you get XP and golden coins. There are also challenges set to you by Papa Smurf where you get extra XP for completing. In levelling up you unlock certain features like houses, plants and much more. This is such a fun and addictive app, you will be immersed.

Spud rating: 8/10

Xbox sells over Thanksgiving!

Over the Thanksgiving week in America the Xbox 360 had it’s largest sales spike in the consoles 6 year history. Consumers bought some 960,000 consoles throughout the week in the US alone. 800,000 of that was in a 24 hour period. With all the new updates and releases coming out soon Microsoft have it sorted. If Xbox 360s sell the most in December this year too then the have the prestigious title of the United States most loved console 2011.

Kinect in TVs?

Microsoft’s Xbox Kinect technology looks set to appear in next generation TVs. Microsoft are keen to push the Kinect into as many living rooms as possible, even those without and Xbox 360 gaming system. Will we be seeing TVs where you swing you arm to turn on/off a TV? Or will it involve the newer voice command that the Kinect has? Microsoft is already in the stage of licensing the technology to major manufacturers like Sony. We might see the PS3 with the Kinects’ technology.

Modern Warfare 3:My Top Class (so far)

I’ve been playing MW3 for a while now and have racked up a decent play time. I’ve seen a few people’s classes and have adapted them to my liking and I now have an ultimate class (so far):

Primary: PP90M1-silencer-kick/range

Secondary: MP9-silencer

Lethal: Semtex

Tactical: Flash

Strike Package: Specialist- Slight of Hand, Quick Draw, Assasin

Perk 1: Extreme Conditioning

Perk 2: Hardline

Perk 3: Dead Silence

The idea of this class is that with your first kill of flag capture you get Slight of Hand to reload with speed. Then with your third kill of flag capture you get Quick Draw to aim down sight quicker and, or throw grenades quicker (pro-versoin required). At your fifth kill or flag capture you get Assasin to be invisable to UAVs and stay alive. Then on you seventh kill or flag capture you get all the perks in the game! You become a super soldier!
