Cataclysm Lives Up To Its Name (and Blizzard is hiring!)

Within 24 hours of its release, World of Warcraft Cataclysm sold a whopping 3.3 MILLION copies. This makes the third (and reported final) expansion for the game and the fastest selling PC game of all time (Wrath of the Lich King sold 2.8 million copies in 24 hours).

How did they achieve such fabulous insanity? Not only was Cataclysm released in 10 countries at the same time but Blizzard and key retail partners in the US, Canada, France, Germany, Russia, Sweden, the Netherlands, Spain, the UK, and Taiwan worked together to open more than 10,000 stores at midnight for the launch of this title.

 

“We had to bring Azeroth to the brink of destruction in Cataclysm, but the result was our best expansion yet. We want to thank all of our new, existing, and returning players throughout the world for their incredible enthusiasm and support, and we look forward to hearing what they think about all the new content.” -Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment.

Madden NFL To Tackle Nintendo 3DS

 

Electronic Arts recently announced that a Madden title would be available for the highly anticipated Nintendo 3DS and be the first EA SPORTS title for the 3DS.

According to EA, Madden NFL Football will offer a comprehensive handheld experience with exciting modes, such as authentic 11-on-11 football, fast-paced 5-on-5 action and Season Mode. Additional features jump off the screen with 3D graphics, such as “Spotlight Moments” and “Call Your Shots”. Utilizing the remarkable power of the Nintendo 3DS Touch Screen, “Call Your Shots” allows users to draw their own plays, on-the-fly, directly on the screen.

While Madden NFL is NOT Madden 11, the game will still look and feel like Madden 11 with three types of play calling—GameFlow, Classic, and Arcade—Madden NFL Football provides an enjoyable experience for gamers of all skill levels.

F1 2010 Review @ GirlGamer

To say that I was excited to recieve my review copy of Codemasters’ racing title F1 2010 would be an enormous understatement.

Immediately upon receiving my review copy I posted to my twitter, stating my excitement about being a part of what is still the ongoing action of the Formula One 2010 season.

 

As I played through the game I was surprised by just how thorough this game really is.  A racing game experience that is beautiful, extensive, and satisfying?  How would you rate it?
