Culture Magazine has found evidence to believe that many pro-gamers use marijuana to enhance their abilities. In a recent interview with Gameplayer, Australian World Cyber Games tournament director Alex Walker stated that he’s “seen a number of players at national tournaments who came in ‘baked’ purely so they could play better”. Interesting stuff, but apparently there’s more than just anecdotal evidence to support beliefs that marijuana boosts gaming performance.

The word Equestrian has its roots in the Latin term equinus – meaning of or related to horses. This week’s Games of the Week is specifically dedicated to Equestrian sports. That means everything from the rodeo to dressage, fox hunting, polo, and show-jumping.

Now on to the Games of the Week.

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.

Ubisoft’s press release Tuesday revealed the development of PowerUp Heroes, a game that combines the Kinect and your XBox 360 avatar for “the ultimate super power-infused full-body fighting game”. Turn your avatar into a superhero by having him or her don one of twenty super suits. After you defeat an enemy, you take his or her super suite and powers a la Mega Man; and if you’ve made your avatar a digital version of yourself, like I have, it’s as close as you’re going to get to fulfilling a childhood fantasy.

If you enjoyed Kinect Adventures, then this may be up your alley. Albeit, after watching this trailer, I can only hope I don’t look as silly playing the game as they did acting out their mock teen super hero drama. All lightheartedness aside, this exclusive title can very well serve as a sampling of Microsoft’s vision of a predominantly social gaming future.

How does Crysis 2 compare to Crytek’s past games? Is the multiplayer worth trying? Check out this review to find out!

Orcinus orca, more commonly reffered to as the killer whale, is a toothed whale and member of the dolphin family. Orcas are found in oceans across the world, from the arctic seas to more tropical waters. While some feed on fish exclusively, others hunt marine mammals such as seals. Orcas have been known to play (violently) with their food. If you love nature videos, something awesome awaits you after the break.

Anyway, the Gamer Limit Staff got together this weekend and discussed what we’ve all been playing lately. We invite you to do the same. Hit up the comments below and let us know what you’ve been playing.

The premise is simple: you go to a bar and see a bunch of people playing this cow abduction game on the big screen. They’re using their iPhones, iPads and Androids as controllers, pressing on the screen to abduct, tilting their phones to move. You connect via your mobile device and you’re next in line. Consider it the 2.0 version of putting your quarter up.

Cow Snatchers was just one of several games demoed at D2S Games’ underground event last week. However, the event wasn’t really meant to demo their games more than it was showcase their platform, which is all about playing games socially without the likes of Facebook. As D2S chief visionary officer Donna Bonifield put it, “it’s all about taking people away from Facebook and into face time.” In fact, this event was more about redefining what a social game is.

Killzone 3 just got patched to version 1.07 yesterday. According to the preliminary notes Guerrilla implemented a lot of changes, including the ability to create private custom games. While I haven’t gotten a chance to play with the new patch yet, I can tell you this: Killzone 3 is in dire need of repair.

Not your typical fanboys, Ahruon and Orkimedes are the brain trust behind a lovely game called Card Saga Wars. What makes this game (and thus these two individuals) so special is that it lets you pit characters like Master Chief and Samus against one another in card art style battle. The concept of crossover battles is nothing original, but, judging by the gameplay videos that have surfaced thus far, they have gone through great pains to make things just right.

Of course you want to see more. Why would I even ask that question?

I described this trailer in the news mashup. It’s much better if you see it yourself. THQ and Volition Inc.’s April fools joke came one day early, which is smart when you think about it. Catch ‘em when they least expect it. Cheers to Saints Row: The Third.
