I’ll admit, when I first saw Lego games coming out and saw what they were like, I honestly said, “Those look like fucking stupid kid games.” WOW was I wrong! I cannot tell you how often I spent an evening intoxicated with a 6 pack of beer and playing the Lego games because they were that fun. We’ve already seen the likes of Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and yes the Dark Knight himself, and that’s what this article is covering actually, the Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes game.
According to sources, the game is actually a sequel to the previous Lego Batman, and will feature a large variety of playable DC characters within the Batman realm and also outside of the Batman realm. A new thing that this game will feature that I think is a first within the Lego series (if not whatever) is dialogue, which is AWESOME! It’s better than hearing grunts and whatever sounds the characters make and makes the game’s story a lot better in my opinion.
If that wasn’t all cool enough for you, there’s definitely more. The new Lego Batman will feature an open world concept and feature gameplay similar to its predecessor. As mentioned before players will get to play as characters in the Batman realm, but also other iconic characters from the DC world will be playable including: Batman (naturally), Robin, Nightwing, Batgirl, Green Lantern, The Flash, Black Canary, Superman, Martian Manhunter, Hawkman, Hawkgirl, Cyborg, Aquaman, and of course Wonder Woman. According to rumors, there will be over 70 playable characters (so I’m guessing supervillains as well from the DC comics). The game will feature a 2-player co-op mode, and since the environment is open-world they will split the screens (THANK GOD!!)
Whew, that was definitely a shit ton of information in such a small article. But yes, for those of you Batman fans who liked the Lego games or maybe haven’t tried them, PICK THIS FUCKING GAME UP!! Enough said, if you gamers haven’t played the first one, do it so you know what you’re in for.
We here at Gamer’s Dish have a new need. And that need is the Need for Speed. That’s right gamers, the developers of the Need for Speed series have set to release another installment of the Need For Speed Franchise with Need For Speed: The Run. This will be the 18th installment in the franchise, and has definitely marked itself as being unique amongst the rest.
Black Box has been working on Need For Speed: The Run for roughly three years now, and we finally get to see why. You gamers probably remember the old Need For Speed games, where the driver wasn’t visible, and basically just racing from one track to the next. Well, this time around, take that concept and throw it right out the window. This game has been totally revamped, in a few ways.
First off, in this installment of the Need For Speed series, there is actually a story that was built around this game. Players will take on the role of the protagonist Jack, who has got himself into a fair amount of trouble, mostly with the mafia. A contact of his, Sam, informs him of a way to be able to make a little bit of “fast” cash. To do this, Jack must put his skills to work, his racing skills that is. The challenge of course is for him to drive across the country in a nationwide race from San Francisco to New York in an event called “The Run.” The reward for achieving first place in New York is $25 million. But of course, something like this doesn’t come easy. With the long arm of the law and the mafia to deal with on this nationwide adrenaline rush, Jack also has to overtake spots from the other 200 members of “The Run.”
Another great feature to this game, is that players aren’t just racing across from one developed track in the game to the next, what they’re actually doing this time is racing in actual areas in the United States! Gamers will be racing from areas like San Francisco, going through Chicago, and some of the other great places that have twists and turns along the way.
Need For Speed: The Run definitely has put a new twist on the racing series. We believe here at Gamer’s Dish that The Run will set a new mark in the Need For Speed series. We’re very excited to have a non-stop adrenaline race to the finish. Gear up for this one gamers!

The time has finally come for the triumphant return of the Modern Warfare series from Call of Duty. This game has been eagerly anticipated now since the end of Modern Warfare 2 and has been on the “want” lists of gamers for months, and for us at Gamer’s Dish, this game has also been no exception. Modern Warfare 3 is the direct sequel to the popular Modern Warfare 2 from 2009.
Like Modern Warfare 2, there are various characters that players will play as throughout the game. It seems like it’s guaranteed to gauge and peak interest in many for this First-Person Shooter. The game features also as well, a co-op mode called Survival Mode, where players will have to shoot their way to survive to the next wave. Players will start with a minimum weapon and as they gain kills, they gain cash to upgrade to better weapons, as well as different devices they can use while in survival, including Drone Predator missiles, Air Strikes, etc.
As if the campaign can’t be explosive enough, along with having a co-op multiplayer that could leave players addicted for days, there’s also the online multiplayer. The entire Killstreak reward system has been revamped. Instead of it being Killstreaks, it’s known now as Pointstreaks, where kills are no longer the only way to increase the player’s Pointstreak. Completing objectives like planting bombs, capturing the flag, all award towards the player’s Pointstreaks and come in neat little packages.
If all that wasn’t enough, there is most certainly more. Modern Warfare 3 launched what is now called Call of Duty: Elite. Call of Duty: Elite is a new free/subscription-based service that was developed by Beachhead Studios for the multiplayer portion of Modern Warfare (and also as a bonus exists for previous installments such as Black-Ops). The free version of Elite features lifetime statistics for a player, as well as social-networking integration. The paid subscription version includes monthly downloadable content, daily competitions for real and virtual life prizes, ability to level up a player’s clan, pro analysis and strategies, and much more. The catch of course is that the paid version of this is $49.99 per year.
Although Modern Warfare 3 did not offer any pre-order bonuses, that still didn’t stop gamers from pre-ordering this next installment. Reviews will come shortly, so stay frosty gamers.
