Play multiplayer games with your friends, or play against new opponents online using our exclusive TrueSkill™  matchmaking system – with other Windows® players or with or against XBOX 360 players (in supported games.)

All of this is possible today – and at no charge.

And it gets even better.

Every Games for Windows- LIVE game carries the Games for Windows branding, which means they meet standards for quality, consistency, safety, and ease of play.  Games for Windows games are tested to support wide-screen monitors, 64-bit operating systems, parental controls, and, in appropriate games, the Xbox 360 Controller for Windows.

A new trailer for the latest Wolfenstein game in development has been released! Finally we’re getting to hear new information regarding the games main character and setting. Here are the latest details released from Activision:

Wolfenstein™ – From id Software’s critically-acclaimed and multi-million unit selling Wolfenstein universe, which pioneered and defined the first-person action genre, comes the ultimate supernatural thriller. Set within a near-fictional, historical WWII setting, players take on the role of the heroic OSA agent BJ Blazkowicz as they are thrust into the unknown and unexpected to battle against combat troops, otherworldly forces, and the dark science created by a supernatural Nazi force hell-bent on world domination. Wolfenstein offers players an action-packed experience as they investigate the powers of a dark parallel dimension, join with resistance forces, and employ an arsenal of conventional and otherworldly weapons in attempts to annihilate the Nazi war machine. Ensuring a deep variety of action, Wolfenstein provides gamers with an assortment of interlinked missions that drive an intense, story-driven combat experience; while the Wolfenstein multiplayer experience continues the world-renowned tradition of class-based team objective gameplay with a full arsenal of conventional and supernatural weapons for addictive online warfare. (Xbox 360™, PS3, Windows® PC).

It’s very exciting to hear that the class-based team objective gameplay will be making a return. This is where this game has truly excelled above the rest. I’m also hoping that the single-player will have a co-op element. I’ll be sure to find out more once I receive a copy of the latest Game Informer magazine where Wolfenstein will be featured on the front cover and post new info here at Gamerfix! They have an exclusive first peek inside Raven studio for a first glimpse at the game and will include a 10-page feature article in their magazine. Great stuff! Here is a link which include some of those videos. http://gameinformer.com/media/mediaviewer.aspx?CS_pid={499A8D12-7FF8-4C43-A02E-354F0BB66AEB}

Enjoy! – Wolfmeister

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the movie for FF13 on XBOX 360!!!!

I just got done watching The live coverage of E3 on livewire.ign.com
it was all jaw droping.

but at the end it was by far the biggest news of the day at least for me FINAL FANTASY 13 on Xbox.

Lets not forgot about Gears of war 2, the creators played through one of the campaign levels and it was F@#&king Awesome looking.

Naruto Broken Bond

What I’m some kind of Naruto junkie!!!
To answer your question YEAH!! I’m just siting around waiting for my weekly Naruto fix, which by the way I just got Shippuuden Episode 066 so I’ll be back in a bit…

So rumor has it that Ubisoft is working on the 2nd series of Naruto games named Broken Bond for Xbox 360, it’s also rumored to be released in November around the same time as Gears of War 2 WHAT!!

I don’t know about you but I played Naruto rise of the ninja for like three days straight! till I had the game beaten, with almost all the achievements except the online ones.

I really liked this game all except the fighting system, But with the PS3 now making thier version, Xbox has really got to step up to the plate. Like I said in my last post I really want this game!!! it looks like you get to have a squad of 3 with you at all times SWEET!!!

Anyway’s back to the subject, it ‘s said the story line is suppose to follow the part where Sasuke and Naruto fight, so that means learn Resengan, find Granny Tsunade and fight Orochimaru’s squad awesome.

Conclusion on game
Basically give me more characters and a better fighting system and you got me hooked as if I wasn’t already =P November sounds like its going to be a busy month for gamers I’m STOKED!!!!

What more info and to see the video read my new post click here —>Naruto Broken Bonds Confirmed plus the video
