Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

I had no intentions on playing this year's dose of Call of Duty, which is kind of crazy considering how long I named COD as being one of my favourite video game franchises. Simply put, I'm Call of Duty'd out. But there's no denying that Infinity Ward are a solid development studio, and after being let down by Battlefield 3's mediocre campaign, I found myself with a craving for some top-shelf modern warfare goodness. I knew full well that MW3 would deliver, and it surely did.

X’06 Hands-on: Gears of War, Forza 2, Call of Duty 3, Tony Hawk’s Project 8 and more!

Yes, I am a lucky man. I may have caught a nasty cold, but I also had a chance to play some of this year's biggest titles, weeks before they come out. For those that aren't familiar with the X'0 events - they're Microsoft's annual hands-on press gatherings where they showcase the upcoming holiday line-up. Contrary to popular belief, this was not the first time an X'0 event was held in Toronto. They actually go way back to X'03, which was the first that I attended. I wrote about X'04, but missed X'05. This year, I took my buddy Andrew along who chainsaw'd me in GOW more than a few times. Anyway, on to the good stuff!

Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood

As much as I enjoy the Assassin's Creed series, Brotherhood was not a game I had high hopes for. In fact, leading up to its release, I had only watched the first couple trailers before writing it off almost entirely. Why would I do such a thing? With games like Call of Duty, Need for Speed, Guitar Hero, and the annual sports titles dropping like clock work every single year without fail (now, with the exception of Guitar Hero), I assumed Assassin's Creed was the latest franchise to receive the mandatory sequel treatment. I was expecting the worst - a rushed, watered down sequel that paled in comparison to its predecessor, of which I thoroughly enjoyed. I couldn't have been more wrong. Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is a fully realized sequel, even more so than Assassin's Creed II which laid the ground work.

Widescreen Gaming Woes

Man, was I ever stoked when I brought home my 21" 16:10 LCD monitor. Unfortunately, that feeling didn't last as long as I had hoped. It seems there's several issues which hamper widescreen gaming that aren't exactly common knowledge. Even after doing hours of research into pros and cons of having a widescreen LCD, I was met with many challenges and frustrating roadblocks that prevented me from jumping into the games I had been playing on my old 19" CRT. With the growing popularity of widescreen monitors and LCDs quickly taking over the monitor market share, I thought it would be a good idea to share my experiences and hopefully cut down the hours you might spend troubleshooting should you pick up a widescreen LCD. First thing's first. There's some terminology you need to know and understand...
