RROD is no more on the new Xbox 360

That of course doesn’t mean it won’t break. There is just a new error system that I am sure we will create a funny name for in the future.

What this basically means is that you just literally won’t see any red lights. But the hope is that the new systems will have the lowest failure rates of all the past 360 systems. Makes sense since they’ve had a ton of time to work on it since the first 360 generation in 2005.

So gamers if your current system is making you see red, I suggest picking up the new system if you have the cash.

Gears of War 3: Beast Mode [ON] OFF

So not only did we get a look at the four player co-op of Gears of War 3 but the guys at EPIC clued us into an entirely new MP game mode. BEAST MODE!

It seems that the wildly successful Horde mode from Gears 2 gave the developers the idea to turn the tables. In Beast mode you play as Locusts. But not just the plain old kind from past MP, no no no. From tiny(but deadly) Tickers to blood thirsty Berserkers, players will be able to play as those and everything in between.

You’re mission, of course, is to eliminate the COGs and unlike Horde you have more than one life to do it. Now there is a ranking system. This means you will have to wait to rank up to play as different Locusts.

I have a feeling this game mode is going to be insanely popular.

Can’t we all just get along?

With E3 2010 in full swing, twitter feeds everywhere have been crowded with updates. But they’ve also been flooded with fanboys/fangirls hating on other consoles and companies.

News Flash people! We all love gaming!!! PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, PC and everything in between, we all enjoy video games. This business of console wars and who has the better platform is childish. To each his/her own. Which console you choose to play on is your own businessĀ and as long as you’re having fun, nothing else should matter.

So do me and so many others a favor this E3, respect other gamers who play on other platforms. No console is perfect and every single one has flaws.Ā Stop the console wars.
