Gears Of War 3 Sound track *SPOILER*

LOS ANGELES, CA - JUNE 6:  Cliff Bleszinski (L...Image by Getty Images via @daylife
So thanks to I learned that the Gears of War 3 sound track is coming out!  Who gives a flying Corpser except *SPOILIER ALERT* it gives the names of the tracks, everything from the beginning of the game to the end.  I can tell just from the titles of the tracks that (1) Marcus' dad shows up, (2) Someone important dies... Carmine is not important, and (3) the human race survives.  So now that you've had the story ruined for you it really doesn't matter because playing GOW for the story is like eating sandpaper for the texture... it gets the job done but there just isn't enough consistency. 

By the way it's composed by Steve Jablonsky, composer of GOW 2 and the arguably more popular and epic-sounding Transformer movies.

1 Million Gamerscore: 600,000 Gamerscore Across The Web

Raymond "Stallion83" Cox... the 600,000 point man. Earlier today he maintained his title for highest Xbox 360 Gamerscore ever by asserting his dominance and achieving 600,000 points playing Earth Defense Force: IA. True dedication indeed. You know what's most surprising though... this guy can can jack some steel! Guys like him give the gamer community a good image and I respect his ability to stay in shape as well as ruin peoples' days with a pair of sticks. Check out his blog below!

1 Million Gamerscore: 600,000 Gamerscore Across The Web: "Joystiq - Top Gamerscore(r) crosses 600,000 'You know, the word hero gets thrown around a lot, and in the process it's lost some of its me..."

Borderlands 2 finally!

Yeah it's been awhile... I know.  However, via, I just found out that Borderlands 2 has been officially announced by 2k!  Also, has surfaced on the web. Their official blog states that's it's not coming until after April 1st, 2012 (sad panda) but we can expect to see it in action at GamesCom and PAXPrime later this month.  You can at least go check out the new cover art at featuring what looks like a vagrant Zeus double-wielding weapons... hopefully a new gameplay mechanic??

A kick to the groin for Sony...

I bet Sony wishes they can make believe the last week and a half.  Although they recently just announced a new PlayStation tablet, that news is being eclipsed by their latest brush with virtual subterfuge.

At this point I'm merely echoing the rest of the internet, but here's the rundown:
- On April 20th the PlayStation Network shutdown without so much as a hint as to why
- On April 26th, they announced on their official blog (after days of vague updates) that the "external intrusion" into Sony's network may have compromised OUR (being the collective gamer) personal data.
- Credit card numbers and expiration dates might have been stolen
- There is no definite timeframe for when the PSN will be fully operational but some services will be returning within a week
- This issue has been escalating to the point where a US Senator has sent a letter of admonishment to the CEO of Sony

So not only can I not play Borderlands with my buddy's (yep, I still play that) I now may be the subject of credit card fraud by no fault of my own.  Good thing all those hackers will get is a nice hunk of debt to deal with, muahaha.

Zombie Apocalypse Sim

So once again I'm breaking my silence with an awesome time-killing flash game humbly entitled, "Rebuild".  You're the leader, you have some land, you have some peeps, and you have a whole mess of zombies outside trying to disembowel your attempt to reestablish civilization.  I found this gem once again being distracted by the awesome that is Newgrounds. Created by Sarah Northway, and sponsored by Two Towers Games, this is surely to completely defeat your motivation to work out... but only for a little bit right?

It looks kinda weird but you can play the game right after the jump so click and Rebuild away!
