As many of you gamers know, the 2009 Video Game Awards were held this past weekend. Although Modern Warfare 2 fell short of the Game of the Year award it was able to snag the Best Shooter and Best Multiplayer Awards.

Uncharted 2

As I have seen on many of the forums MW2 players are a little upset that the game was shut out of best game by PS3’s Uncharted 2. Many of those angry gamers are 360 owners who, like myself, have not played the game due to its exclusivity to PS3. What I have seen and heard about Uncharted 2 is nothing but great things and I personally believe it must be an awesome game.

Back to what I do know, MW2 definatly deserved the best shooter and multiplayer. Up against Halo 3: ODST and Left for Dead 2 in both categories there was no doubt that MW2 took home the awards.

A few side notes…

Happy to see Halo 3: ODST get Best Original Score as the music really was memorizing throughout the gameplay.

Also delighted to see Beatles Rockband take home the Best Music Game Award. With all the classic songs and animation it defiantly beats out the Guitar Hero franchise.

What were your thoughts gamers?

Beatles Rockband

Now I’m not one of those people that goes out an buys every new Rockband or Guitar Hero game. I can’t play Through the Fire and the Flames on Expert let alone hard difficulty. If a game has songs I like I might get it. In the case Of Beatles Rockband I HAD TO HAVE IT.

Calling all Beatles fans who own a gaming console! You must buy this game. What could be better than rocking out to your favorite Beatles songs. Sure I would love to learn how to play these songs on a real guitar but I’m pretty sure this is as close as I will get.

You can buy this awesome game by itself if you already have the instrument controllers. Or there have been replica controllers made (game sold separately for some).

“Instruments patterned after the trademark Beatles gear: John Lennon’s Rickenbacker 325 guitar, George Harrison’s Gretsch Duo Jet guitar, Paul McCartney’s Höfner violin bass and Ringo Starr’s Ludwig drums. Plus support for up to three mics.”

Not only are the instruments fantastic but the gameplay rocks too. Abbey Road and Shea Stadium are just two. It even has the screaming women trying to jump the barricades and being stopped by the cops. What could be more authentic than that.

If you like the Beatles get this game. If you are just into to music games it might not be the game for you. This game is geared towards the fans, so I’m not interested in hearing complaints from non fans.
