A Video Gamers Digest
Video Games are a unique media that are enjoyed by people, both young and old worldwide. Adults, teens, and kids all play games to escape to a fantasy world, educate themselves, get up and dance or just socialize with friends.
My aim in creating Games News Network is to build a place where I could show others all the great games, media and news that come out of the industry. It's all about giving back to an industry that has given gamers so much.
Mass Effect 3 get Bonus Content before Release
Mass Effect 3, BioWare's Action/RPG hits stores in March but it is already getting alot of attention. We've already heard that the Demo drops on February 14 and allows you to unlock in-game items. We've also heard that pre-ordering the game entitles you to more items depending on who you buy it from. That's a lot of incentives right? Wrong, EA plans on releasing a series of 8 ME inspired action figures. Each figure, apart from being pretty cool, has packaged with them a card that gives you a code for access to bonus in-game items. This means 8 cards for 8 different pieces of content. But wait there's more. [via GameInformer]
It has also been announced that the Art of Mass Effect Universe artbook will include a download code for the Collector's Rifle when you pre-order from Barnes & Nobles. Those who played ME2 should remember this sweet assault rifle. Along with the collector's rifle the artbook also comes with other content to make your game easier and more enjoyable. The only downside is that it seems these codes(Figures & Book) only work for the PC and Xbox 360 owners of the game leaving PS3 owners out in the cold. [via joystiq]
What do yo think of the different ways of receiving in-game items for ME3 and which will you be getting?
Kingdom Hearts III has gone GOLD. To say that sounds like something so long in the making; to be able to finally say it feels surreal. We have just a little over two months to catch up on the previous games (should you so choose) but I know I'll be doing that. I can't believe it's finally about to happen. I'll get to continue and finish Sora's journey I began so long ago (T.T).

I want to start a weekly series of discussion post where a topic is picked and we have an open discussion of our thoughts and opinions. I have a few topics in mind but I open the floor to suggestions.
In the video game industry, today's games usually have several modes unique to them. Two of those modes, single-player and multiplayer have become a norm for most game. Single-player is all about experiencing the story behind the game, watching beautifully rendered cut scenes and getting to know the main character(s). Multiplayer on the other hand is all about interacting with multiply players across the world while adhering to the game world and mechanics. There are a variety of different multiplayer game types, players may individually compete against two or more human contestants, work cooperatively to achieve a goal, or engage in a game type that incorporates any combination mentioned above.
In the past few years the line between the two modes have started to blur, you can see game…
The more I see of this game the more I can't get my hands on it. We've know for a long time that Big Hero 6 was going to be one of the new worlds in Kingdom Hearts III but this is our first time seeing so much of how our hero's; Sora, Donald and Goofy, interact with this world. Kingdom Hearts III is set to be released next year on January 25th.
