Battlefield 3 is getting a lot  love on Facebook, with approximately 781,000 likes as of this article’s publication. This is accelerated no doubt by EA and DICE’s  promise to release a full 12 minute gameplay trailer once they reach 1,000,000. You don’t have to wait that long. The trailer is out and Gamer Limit has it for you.

Perhaps EA and DICE were too excited, perhaps they had certain PR deadlines that just needed to be met. In any case, it’s a win for fans and gamers in general. It must be noted that the trailer with commentary is yet to be unlocked. That won’t stop you from enjoying this eye popping video, however. If you have never gotten your hands on any of the games in the Battlefield series, this trailer may motivate you to do so in anticipation of this beauteous game.

Fair warning — not safe for work language is included in this video ahead.

The Warhammer 40K universe is a pretty rough place. You’ve got Nazi like Space Marines trying to ensure humanity’s survival by purging all Xenos, the extremely expendable Imperial guard allied with the Space Marines (for the most part), the Ork hordes plundering and pillaging worlds as they please, Chaos Space Marines who have fallen off the deep end and now fight ancient dark gods slaughtering anything, the Tyrranid hive consuming worlds like a plague of locusts, and the space-elfish Eldar who are always plotting ways to mess up everyone’s plans.  Like I said, it’s a tough place, and it only gets tougher in the latest standalone expansion Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War II: Retribution.

For those of you who already are fans of DoWII or its other expansion Chaos Rising, you probably have a good idea what Retribution is all about. If you haven’t played any of the previous games, hit the jump and allow me to break it all down for you. Read more… »

Today marks the start of another Humble Indie Bundle, this time brought to you by the good folks over at Frozenbyte, a Finnish game studio.

In the past Gamer Limit has posted news items about the two previous Humble Indie Bundles, but in case you missed those let me break it down for you. Basically, you can pay what you want for (in this case) five indie games you may have missed otherwise. The cool thing is, you get to choose where you money goes. You can split it evenly among the developers and charities, give it all to charity, or send it all to the developer. The charities involved are Electronic Frontier Foundation and Child’s Play Charity. Read more… »

We can agree to disagree about whether or not Dragon Age II is a worthy successor to Dragon Age: Origins, but I think we can all agree on the fact that free stuff is cool. Apparently Bioware is running a promotion where you can score a free copy of Mass Effect 2 on the PC. Read more… »

Yesterday EA launched Battlefield Play4Free, a free-to-play first-person shooter developed by the team behind Battlefield Heroes. Featuring classic maps from Battlefield 2, the classes and weapons from Battlefield: Bad Company 2, and 16 vehicles, Battlefield Play4Free sounds like a great introduction for gamers who may not be too familiar with the Battlefield franchise.

In order to get in on the action, all you need to do is head over to the Battlefield Play4Free site, sign up, create a soldier and download the client. Read more… »


Have you played through the Arrival DLC? Has it got you even more excited for the release of Mass Effect 3, or did you expect more than an hour of gameplay?

It’s no secret that my current gaming obsession is StarCraft II. I’ve been absolutely swept up in how competitive the game is and how the eSports community has rallied behind it. Competitive gamers, myself included, are really banking on SC2 to bring Korean style eSports to the West.

One small step in this process is getting relatively mainstream news outlets to report on the professional SC2 scene. Today the good folks over at PC Gamer published an article titled “The 5 StarCraft 2 players you should be watching – America & Europe.” Complete with links to games, “real” sports counterparts and all the other important information (what race they play, where they’re from, age, etc.) the article does a great job of introducing gamers who are not familiar with eSports to the scene.

Today, Capcom has confirmed its latest Resident Evil title – Operation Raccoon City.  The publisher is partnering with SOCOM Confrontation developer Slant Six Games to develop the franchise’s first third-person team-based shooter.

The game will follow the Umbrella Security Service  through the events of Resident Evil 2 and 3. While not much is known about the title, Capcom has teased three-way competitive multiplayer  between US Spec Ops, Umbrella security forces, and the infected threat of zombies and Bio-Organic Weapons.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City will be landing on the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC this winter.

Picture Epic Games as a senior at NCSU taking the semester off to backpack through Europe. Spain was fun, but not his style. No, he’s more into northern Europe, up where it’s colder, up where it snows.

Epic has been on a Eurotrip for quite some time, and we finally received a postcard from his stop at Poland. “Wish you were here,” Epic scribbles on the back of a picture of him and his good friend Dicktits (the loving nickname he gave his pal People Can Fly), having fun next to a monumental sized plant monster. And this is great, because vicariously through Epic and People Can Fly, we enjoy Poland.

“Next stop, Sweden,” Epic says. He has to see about a Coffee Stain, and such an epic Coffee Stain it is.

Darksiders 75% Off on Steam
By: | March 18th, 2011

Darksiders, my personal 2010 game of the year, is on sale for $10.00 this weekend on Steam. If my PC could run it I’d consider snagging a copy even though I already own it for PS3.

Darksiders will be on sale via Steam until 10am PST on Monday, March 21. Tell your friends about it! It’s a fun game about characters with hilariously gruff voices and demon slaying. Do you really need more incentives? But seriously, tell your friends. I know Darksiders 2 is already in development; I just want the fine people at Vigil Games to be given a little insurance.
