Three 3′s for Christmas   no comments

Posted at 10:55 am in Consoles and Games

November brings the release of three video games which are all number 3 in their series (well almost). Any of them would make an ideal Christmas pressy for someone that loves kicking serious virtual ass.

 

cod mw31 Three 3s for ChristmasCall of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

This is actually the eight Call of Duty title, but only the third to hold the Modern Warfare sub-title. You continue to follow the characters from Modern Warfare 2, Soap MacTavish and John Price who – with the help of Nikolai the Russian informant – attempt to halt the Russians as they begin World War 3.

You continue to pursue Makarov from the previous Modern Warfare episode and, hopefully this time, end him.

This was the biggest game release of all time, selling $775 million in the first five days.

Assassins Creed Revelations

Assassins Creed Revelations Cover 220x300 Three 3s for ChristmasThis latest adventure in the Renaissance period of history sees the same characters from the previous episodes. This time Ezio and Altair are in Constantinople all be it at different times,  and Desmond is in a comma trying to puzzle his way out of unconsciousness.

The fighting is as intricate and bloody as usual and the scenery from the root tops is exceptional.

The new hookblade allows Ezio to reach further and also use cables as zip lines between buildings.

All in all it’s a steady improvement from the previous instalment and continues the story well.

Saints Row the Third

Saints Row The Third box art 238x300 Three 3s for ChristmasAs in Saints Row 2, you play the leader of the Third Street Saints this time in the city of Steelport. You wage a turf war with the rival criminal group ‘The Syndicate’ after they caused you to do time and then tried to squeeze a ton of money from the gang.

Everything in this game is over the top. The game a bigger and better than the previous Saints Row instalments, and actively pokes fun at itself and other aspects of popular culture.

If you’ve never played a GTA or Saints Row type game give this one a try. You’ll find yourself chuckling as you batter innocent bystanders.

Xbox 360 Red Ring of Death

Our Xbox 360 has gone and died. It has the three red light problem. My kids are screaming at me to buy a new one or fix this one.

I’ve seen a fix advertised that can help me fix the red ring of death. I’m going to buy it and try it out this weekend.

I’ll provide an update of the fix and review of the fixing product once my soldering iron cools down.
