So everyone know that Bioshock Infinte is set to hit shelves in March of this, pending any additional delays. However , the first two Bioshock games are getting a revival this month with the Biohock Ultimate Rapture Edition. The edition comes with both the first two Bioshock games ( Bioshock 1 and Bioshock 2) as well as all the DLC that came out for both games (yes even the Challenge Rooms Pack; which was previously only released on PS3 as an exclusive for Bioshock). The edition also includes never before seen artwork, character models, and all that fun behind the scenes artsy things major Bioshock fans will love. So that’s both games, all the DLC, and never before seen artwork all for the shelf price of $40. Well damn, that’s a pretty great deal.

So if you haven’t tried some of the best stories on this generation of consoles, or if you just want to get back into the Bioshock spirit this is surely one awesome, affordable and easy way to just that!

We just have one question for all of you; what do you all think about the videogame industry’s recent investment in repackaging and reselling previously released games?

Angry Birds’s Christmas Rampage

Angry Birds got an incredible amount of downloads on Christmas, that is deserving of a standing ovation. Those of you who are fans Rovio probably remember them hitting 1 billion downloads back in May 2012, well maybe you didn’t hear that, but it did happen. Nonetheless it’s great to see that Rovio is still racking up downloads in the millions on Christmas and the week afterwards. Basically what it breaks down to is that’s one download for every other new android an iOS tablet and smartphone that was purchased over the holidays. Great job guys! All 1.03 billion of us can’t wait to see what you do in 2013.

Best Games of 2012!

As we near the end of the year we decided to get everyone’s opinion on the top games of 2012! Everyone can pick up to 3 answers, and on December 26th we will post what the most popular best games of 2012 were!

Nuketown Zombies & EXP BOOST

Nuketown ZombiesThe map that the majority population of Call of Duty: Black Ops fans love has just become infested the brain eating corpses. Yes, that’s right Nuketown Zombies has released. Unfortunately, unless you have the season pass for the 360 or purchased the hardened edition of the game, you won’t be able to play it just yet. Nonetheless, you can still watch the really awesome trailer for the pandemonium that will be released upon the small and fun map!

Though, the release of Nuketown Zombies is great news by itself, Activision has announced an even better event scheduled for this weekend! The second Double XP weekend will begin this Friday [starting roughly 10am PST] (December 14th) through Monday [ending 10am PST] (December 17th).

Black Ops 2 was this year’s Cash Cow

Black ops 2 1 billion

According to Activision and PC Gamer Black Ops 2 generated an amount of money equal to $1 billion in only 15 days! Yeah, that’s quite a lump sum of cash in just over two weeks of sales. SO that doesn’t even include the increasing amount that Activision is still going to receive throughout the rest of the holiday season!

Despite the fact tat prices will vary from area to area, that roughly works out to 16.7 million copies of Call of Duty Black Ops 2 sold. All I have to say is WOW! Obviously Call of Duty still holds the majority amount for FPS games. However, that’s going to be hard to beat next year. Let’s see if the teams at Activision are up to the challenge; not only for the speed of sales, but the quality of content!
