If you’re a Transformers fan you’ll be happy to see that the latest retail offering, Fall of Cybertron, is available the day it launches – in other words, right now. If you’re wavering on whether or not to get it, the fact that you can make your own Transformer might help you decide. Seriously.

WOTS4?

Hot damn! And here I thought I'd be using that money I put in my PSN account last weekend would go toward the R&C collection.

EDIT: and, of course, Legasista looks pretty damn interesting. A great update for the PS3. Shame Sony forgot about their newest handheld. Again.

thorstein2248d ago

Not to mention Dust 514 Beta (for Plus)! New LBP2 Autumn pack is FREE!!! (Love the free) Free Spec Ops the Line add on.. This is one great update!

longcat2248d ago

Sonic Adventure for $5 - more and more of my money going to sega these days

doogiebear2248d ago

Sega's current games suck lately. Glad theor bronging jet set radio and nights to HD this fall though. Still hoping for a valkyria chronicles collection to be announced.

got counterstrike downloading....we got any reviews yet?

doesnt matteranyway i love CS.

Ron_Danger2248d ago (Edited 2248d ago )

I haven't seen any reviews but I'm assuming that "younger" review sites are gonna complain about the lack of iron sight aiming.

From what I've seen from the latest videos, it's classic CS with a fresh coat of paint which I think is a good thing for this series. Plus the PS3 version has Move and keyboard & mouse support!

ddurand12248d ago

i agree i think theyll knock it down for that.

yeah im buying a mouse and keyboard for it if I dont like the dualshock controls.

Im really excited. Ive been playing since 1.6 on PC. even had the original on the original xbox.

Soldierone2248d ago

It won't be just that. Remember Counter Strike is going to be way too hard for the COD scrubs, so expect a lot of "this game sucks!" comments from them getting owned.

brettyd2248d ago

This is what Zipper should of done with SOCOM instead of trying to reinvent the wheel. Maybe they would still have jobs. Nice job VALVE!

killerhog2248d ago (Edited 2248d ago )

How you not gonna have iron sight aiming though? Is that some how suppose to be realistic? Cause I saw a video of someone gunning people down with a pistol regardless of the distance. In one case he was more than 10-15 meters and gunned down someone shooting at him with an assault rifle? It's just pretty much at times blind hip firing as well. If you ask me its just as mindless as cod. Which I can also bet a lot of people will be using modded controllers for the aim and fire assist.

I mean, I don't care either way, as I can kill anyone with hip fire or aiming or a pistol or assault rifle but it baffles me that it won't have iron sight aiming?

snipes1012248d ago

Could someone please explain to me how a lack of iron sights somehow makes a shooter better? Anyone??

Septic2248d ago (Edited 2248d ago )

Killerhog

Lol have you ever played counter strike?! Lack of iron sights baffles you?

Oh my days.....I'm sorry but I can't even begin to explain what's wrong with your post mate. Needless to say...

All in jest btw ;)

I wanna see what its like to play on the PS3 with a keyboard and mouse.

doogiebear2247d ago (Edited 2247d ago )

Im from a generation that enjoyed games before there was ironsight, regenerative health, aim assist and sprinting. I frequently played the hardest shooters like Rainbow Six vegas series, Metal Gear Online, etc.

However, I must still say that the lack of ironaoghts is quite jarring in this game. It really hasnt aged well. In order to still appreciate this old aiming mechanic of using hip fire only, I'd have to stop playing other gamez like BF3 and forget entirely my history with other games that utilize ironsights. Ironights =/= COD or ease of play (especially when there is no aim assist), it simply means another layer of aim. However, old CS vets wanted CS on ps3 to stay the same for some reason. I can't underatand that, because if they were such big fans of CS even to this day, then they'd be playing it FREE on steam/pc instead of playing an un-evolved duplicate on ps3 (since the pc community is larger, FREE, and works on just about any pc: and has always been that way).

However, let us reason:

I dont think ironsights makes FPS games any easier, its just an added layer to the aim mechanics. Imagine playing battlefield 3 and only using hipfire (no matter how far the enemy was) and tell me that that wouldnt be redundant....

I tried the trial version of CS last night (ps plus full game trial) and really tried to love it, but it really is quite dated (whether the lack of ironsights bothers you or not). It really wasnt all that fun anymore.

Im looking forward to the new Rainbow Six for my hardcore old-schoolish fps tactical gaming fix

What does it matter? You already bought it. Why not give us your review?

ddurand12248d ago

1. Because I havent finished the download.

2. Im working tonight and wont be able to play the game.

3. Why shouldnt i be interested to see what other gamers think about a game Im purchasing?

MostJadedGamer2248d ago

People shouldnt give reviews until they put a lot of hours into a game.

ConstipatedGorilla2248d ago

But you've already bought it! It doesn't matter if it got a 1 or a 10. Too late for you! No damn logic on this site anymore.

GamerSciz2248d ago

@ddurand1

I think @constipatedgorilla is saying since you bought it via PSN that there is no refund so regardless of good score or not you are stuck with it. While he has a valid point I feel that he went about it in a irrational way that was unnecessary. I for one have it for PC and can say that if you enjoyed the 1.6 days then you will enjoy this. It plays nothing like CS: Source.

ddurand12248d ago

i dont give two shits about the score.

i just wanted something to read at work while i looked forward to playing the game when i got home.

I dont understand why thats a problem with anyone. I know I cant get a refund, I dont want a refund. Had you read my post I was just curious about other gamers opinions and my download was not done yet.

its an ok experience, but its worth buying a keyboard and mouse for. the dualshock does it no justice.

Having a hard time deciding between the PC version or the PS3 version. Choices...

SCARE-KRO2248d ago

Me too... Any factors sway your mind yet? I literally have my finger on the "Add to cart" on Steam - but I can't make my mind up.... PS3 or PC

BaconBits2248d ago

Same here. I have a nice gaming pc but I know my friends will only have it on Xbox. Plus I am still not great with the keyboard ( I still use the xbox controller for movement and the mouse for aim on BF3 PC)

ddurand12248d ago

you can use a mouse and keyboard on the ps3 if that makes your decisino any easier.

crawling1822247d ago

PC version here. Turns out my friends swayed the decision.

SCARE-KRO2247d ago

Apparently there might be a zombie mod for PC?

Well, Cod 4 sold great, the franchise then became VERY successful, and started reproducing similar content to try and please the audience, so this must mean that anyone who plays cod is bad at shooters..... wait?

GuyThatPlaysGames2247d ago

I have always been a CS fan and this game is just perfect!!! Of course your 12 yr old gamers are gonna be "no ADS"! This game is very fun and addicting. I love it and I don't see myself getting tired of it anytime soon. Everyone should get this game.
