  • Crysis 3 Achievements List Revealed

    The full achievement list of Crysis 3 has been revealed. We have the complete list along with tips and tricks to achieve each achievement in Crysis 3. Check them out below.

    Crysis 3 Achievement ListThe hunted becomes the hunter in the CryEngine-powered open-world shooter Crysis 3! Players take on the role of 'Prophet' as he returns to New York in the year in 2047, only to discover that the city has been encased in a Nanodome created by the corrupt Cell Corporation. The New York City Liberty Dome is a veritable urban rainforest teeming with overgrown trees, dense swamplands and raging rivers. Within the Liberty Dome, seven distinct and treacherous environments become known as the Seven Wonders. This dangerous new world demands advanced weapons and tactics. Prophet will utilize a lethal composite bow, an enhanced Nanosuit and devastating alien tech to become the deadliest hunter on the planet.

    Prophet is on a revenge mission after uncovering the truth behind Cell Corporation's motives for building the quarantined Nanodomes. The citizens were told that the giant citywide structures were resurrected to protect the population and to cleanse these metropolises of the remnants of Ceph forces. In reality, the Nanodomes are CELL's covert attempt at a land and technology grab in their quest for global domination. With Alien Ceph lurking around every corner and human enemies on the attack, nobody is safe in the path of vengeance. Everyone is a target in Prophet's quest for retribution.

    Crysis 3 will launch on February 19 for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

  • Confirmed: Fallout 4 Leak Details are FAKE FAKE FAKE

    Fallout 4 details are FAKE, the reddit user (GNR_Informant) himself admitted. According to the recent update posted by the user on Reddit, he has not proof (about all the Fallout 4 details leaked) because it was all LIE.

    Fallout 4 Fake Details Confirmation

    Check out below what false details user GNR_Informant leaked about Fallout 4.

    • Fallout 4First and foremost, the game will take place in Boston, and be kind of a direct sequel to Fallout 3 with a few groups returning.
    • From what it sounds like, “The
      Institute” is pretty much the downtown DC or New Vegas of this game.
      Boston is going to be unlike anything we’ve seen in a Fallout game
      before, with buildings more on par with cyberpunk and retro-futurism.
    • Androids play a big part in this
      game. The railroad from Fallout 3 is a faction. The enemies of the
      railroad is “the Plantation” — a group who force Androids to farm so
      that Humans can get food. The Institute is highly advanced and probably
      obtained or built their own GECK to start a farm.
    • Due to complaints about using Super
      Mutants and the Brotherhood of Steel in Fallout 3 excessively and going
      against the lore too much, Bethesda has decided to avoid using these
      groups. Bethesda wants to make a new “race” (think Ghoul, Super Mutant)
      which will be central to Boston. Bethesda is currently looking at
      Lovecraftian fiction since Boston is around “Lovecraft Country”.
    • Bethesda has no plans to reinvent
      the leveling up system to make it more like Skyrim and want to make
      Fallout 4 more distinct from Skyrim since of the complaints that
      Oblivion and Fallout 3 were too similar. Bethesda is thinking about
      introducing a system, similar to Skyrim, where your skills can level up
      if you perform certain tasks.
  • GTA V PC in development, 10 Hidden Evidence Confirms

    At present Rockstar Games has only announced Grand Theft Auto V (GTA V) for PS3 and Xbox 360. The firm is keeping quiet on PC version of most anticipated game of 2013 (GTA V). However this hasn't stopped one eager GTA series fan from rounding up 10 separate bits of evidence suggesting GTA V for PC will happen indeed sometime in near future.

    GTA VHere is what GTA Forums user "S1LV3R_W0LF" said about his finding, "Ok first of all I wanna make clear that I know there are some threads about GTAV PC, and also there was a lot of topics about rumors. But the purpose of my thread is not to talk about rumors or to talk about if there is or not a version or to be transformed in another useless debate/ flame war with consoles.

    These are all facts, that I mentioned before but that people miss, because they hardly read the whole threads and this time I'll post all the sources of these informations, instead of just listing them. So I think once and for all I should make this thread that originated a few articles on the Internet on websites I didn't even knew with the list I made but that many people questioned because there were no facts to support it, ok here we go:"

    Check out HERE, a total of 10 Evidence which confirms that GTA V PC will indeed happen in near future.

    Few of these evidence are pretty weak, but taking into consideration all the facts mention, this indeed makes a pretty compelling case.

    Do you agree with all these evidence listed by "S1LV3R_W0LF"?. Let us know your views to us in the comment section below.
