Get a figurine of your Xbox Avatar - Strike a pose!

Do you love your lil onscreen xbox avatar buddy? Would you like to have him sitting on your bedside table and take him for walks? Well now you can! Microsoft have introduced - 'Figure Prints'. This allows you to pose your lil lad or ladette, just like my lil fella bellow... aww - isn't he cute! They then scan it and make it a real life 3D model to hold in your hand. Only catch is that it cant display licenced gear, as in game bits or any branded frocks. It only costs $50... WAIT!!! WHAT??? FIFTY BUCKS?? It was a good idea till you hear the price tag! Ten to fifteen might be acceptable for a customised bit of plastic - but fifty? Forget it, I'll stick to cuddling my teddy... um... But if you do feel like blowing your doe on a dolly then start here - Figure Prints

Battlefield 3 trailer - In your face... literally!

Check out this latest trailer vid for Battlefield 3 - Lots of shooting and shit, but theres also a bit of puncy, puncy going on too. Looks like you'll be able to open a can o woop-ass on the baddies by throwing a few slaps around. Mind you, a knife would have been just as useful... Overall, B3 is looking pretty promising!

Mass Effect 2 DLC - Arrival

Ok, so the Reapers are in town, I'm ok, but I'm pretty sure the rest of you are fucked! If you don't believe me just check out the trailer below... This will be the last Mass Effect 2 DLC, aptly named: Arrival - and it is available as of today (March 29th, 2011) on xbox (560msp), PS3 and PC ($6.99)! This is basically the bridge to Mass Effect 3 so it is more than an add on, its virtually compulsory if you want to be in the loop! Good luck with getting obliterated, its going to be lonely without you all... sob! But it does mean more free whisky for me - Score!

Mario meets GTA - The Mushrooms are hitting the fan!!

What if Mario was real? What if his plight was put into a gritty modern setting? What if Peach was hot? What if Mario wasn't just a lil fat plumber? 'What if' is no more, some clever spark (The Gamestation) combined these two great gaming dynasties to form the videos below. Lots of subtle references and some not so subtle... Well thought out, well made and well worth a watch! Bring a Hammer to a gunfight eh... Mario gonna f**k you up Motherf**kr! Yo!
