I don’t like posting videos from other sites for quite obvious reasons but we like the guys over at VG247 and they’ve posted up a video of one of their journo’s going hands on with Battlefield 4.
When I think of iconic PlayStation characters the first on my list is always Kratos, the original video game bad ass and while the gameplay may be getting a little long in the tooth I can’t bring myself to say anything bad about him. He’s just one of those awesome characters.
Now we all know that Australians aren’t really good for much but I’m happy to give them all the credit this morning for posting up 4 brand new Gears of War: Judgement videos showcasing the single player campaign and multiplayer; including a new game mode called Overrun.
It’s been long rumoured - and recently officially confirmed - that the Mass Effect series, one of the last bastions of great single player gaming would be getting that multiplayer bullet-point on the back of its box. Many were fearful that the inclusion of multiplayer would detract from the focal, single player experience, whether directly - by making it part of the campaign - or indirectly, by decreasing the game’s scope. Thankfully, it seems that neither will be the case - and according to Bioware, the multiplayer component is mostly standalone.
There hasnâ€™t been much announced about the upcoming multiplayer side of Uncharted 2 but that hasnâ€™t stopped us getting overly excited about a new batch of screenshots that have just been released.
From what I can see there is going to be a capture the flag type of gameplay where you need to capture a vase and then obviously your generic â€œKill everything that movesâ€ mode as well.
The screens look awesome apart from the ugly green indicators on the HUD that I hope Naughty Dog change before releasing the full game.

Does that headline sound as bad to you as it does to me?
Anyway back to the point, news has been released that the Killzone 2 servers are being booted up this Wednesday in preparation for the Friday release of this blockbuster title.
Now it has been mentioned before and I will just briefly go over it again, very few blockbuster PS3 games to date have managed to be released and their multiplayer section hold out against the horde of players.
While we initially gave a review for Soul Calibur IV a short while back, we were unable to review one of the games new and anticipated features, online multiplayer.
As usual, we at Lazygamer do things slightly different, so with that in mind, we bring you the review of Soul Calibur IV's online component. We are also going to be looking at the game not only from an online perspective, but a South African online perspective. So, Is it a step forward in the world of fighting games, or is it just a lag fest that South Africans can happily ignore.
Find out after the jump.
