OnLive Continues Their THQ Deal Week With…



First off, I’d like to apologize on behalf of the ENTIRE 8BC crew for not being as swift with our news as we used to be, the majority of us are absolutely slammed with other priorities at the moment and we hope to get these matters resolved so we may go back to our usual regimen of making your minds cum on a daily basis.

Slightly perverted-undertone apology aside; today on OnLive, you may/will purchase Mx Vs. Atv Reflex for a mere 5USD. Now I’ve been on record as saying that I “will forever miss the Mx VS. Atv series” and that still holds true. So.. to honor one of my most favorite racing franchises of all time. I, Shawn, not as an editor, not as an omnipotent being that blesses all of you (except for when Full Sail insists  that I cram my head full of knowledge, damn you Finite Math), not even as the perverted savior of many social networks, but as a gamer celebrating all of the joy this franchise gave me, will buy Ms VS. Atv Reflex through OnLive and aggressively play the hell out of the online multiplayer. I hope to see all of you OnLine (HA, you see what I did there. Whooo I am a hoot and a half) with me.

My player tag on OnLive is “supermave” (sans quotation marks) please mention 8BC in your friend request. 🙂

And if you don’t mind, I’m just going to leave this game play footage here, I assure you it has absolutely no ulterior motives or deceptions to entice you to buy the game and join me online *inconspicuous whistle*.

As always, thank you for reading *and watching the video, I KNOW YOU DID* Feel free to Like us on Facebook and stalk us on Twitter. Also, if you’d click that nice little “follow” button on the bottom left hand corner of your screen, that would make me really happy. 😀

Saints Row 3 The Deckers Mission Gameplay

Haha check out this new gameplay video of the Deckers mission where the boss of the saints blows himself up and gets himself  into some serious shit. He shoots his way through a army of tron like enemies with a giant megaman type arm blasting through them one by one. the gameplay cuts to some old school tank on tank action with some chiptune in the background while once again cutting, but to the final battle. In the real world your all just my bitches……

Saints Row 3 Kills Tron

Holy shit Saints Row 3 goes Tron!!!!! In the up coming Saints Row game you will get to go up against a gang of hacker called The Deckers. In the trailer you will be able to catch some game play where you get warped into a virtual reality Tronish world just to stop and defeat Matt Miller Cyber Punk hacker. The Decker gang might be nerdy, but they don’t lack on sw@g one bit with their neon blue trucks and suits. Oh and Saints have a new member everyone welcome Kinzie Kensington ex intelligence agent who will be your own personal hacker throughout the game. Why would you be going up against this gang of nerds you ask? Will they just took every cent you own! So get ready to unleash pain on November 15th when Saints Row 3 releases and roundhouse every single person bad or good that gets in your way.

Cloud Gaming and 40 Weeks of Saints Row 3 DLC

Brian Farrell, CEO of THQ, spoke highly of cloud gaming yesterday, which shouldn’t be too much of a surprise once you consider the frequent amount OnLive deals, or the fact that he was speaking at the Cloud Gaming USA Conference.

Farrell predicted that a move to an all-digital game distribution “will result in a lower cost for the hardware manufacturer, which will result in a lower cost to consumers and therefore a lower entry point, thus driving more mass market adoption.” He doesn’t just see PCs adopting this in the future, but consoles as well.

And speaking, well, typing of downloading content, Saints Row: The Third is going to have a lot of that. Farrell said that the game would be followed by about 40 weeks of DLC.

“We totally change how we keep consumer engaged for a very long time,” Farrell said. “We intend to create an online digital ecosystem that keeps them interested for a year or more.” It’s the same kind of approach THQ tried with MX vs. ATV Alive, except without the base game having reduced content to start — or a reduced price.

“What we found was unlike free to play, $39.99 [the budget-level price of MX vs. ATV] just wasn’t low enough to drive a big enough install base to push the level of DLC we had initially hoped for.”

It will be interesting to see if that kind of strategy works with a game that is more complete, and fully priced. Of course that wont change the fact that I’ll forever miss the MX vs. ATV series. 😦 I guess I’ll just have to launch myself out of a cannon to get rid of all of this repressed sadness and rage.
