Gears of War – Judgment Xbox Review

In case you own an Xbox 360 gaming device, you simply must have Gears of War game in your favorite collection. As a matter of fact, if you truly believe that you are a real gamer, you probably own all three Gears of War sequels that have been released up to this date. But whether you already are a fan of the series or not, the upcoming 4th addition to the series, named Gears of War: Judgment, is sure to be of interest to you. According to both rumors and official sneak-peaks and announcements, it seems that the Gears of War: Judgment is aiming to become the best game of the series. That would be no small feat, considering that Gears of War 3 has set very high standards, with most game critics awarding it with scores north of 90 points (out of 100).

To quickly introduce the series to those who are unfamiliar with it, Gears of War is a third person shooter which takes place on a fictional planed called “Sera” which in many ways resembles planet Earth. The storyline focuses on a war between humans and “Locust”; violent creatures that previously lived underground until one day, they found their way out to the surface and wiped out a large portion of the human population. This day became known as the “Emergence Day”. Ever since then, a war has been raging between the remaining human population and the Locust, with each group attempting to eliminate the other.

While the first three sequels have focused on the events after the Emergence day, rather surprisingly, Gears of War: Judgment will take the player back in time to the most critical moment of the whole story – the immediate aftermath of the Emergence Day. According to the trailer first shown at E3 in June 2012, we can look forward to playing along characters that have accompanied us since the first sequel, such as Augustus Cole and Damon Baird, but we are also going to be getting to know three new key characters.

According to the developers, some of the most exciting new features are the completely new multiplayer modes. One of them is a thrilling, class-based competitive “OverRun” mode, in which the players (known as COG in Gears of War terms) will battle Locust head-to-head in a way “unlike anything Gears fans have experienced yet” (taken from official GoW statement).

The game is planned to go on shelves on March 19th, but can be pre-ordered already on sites such as Amazon. As is the case with the Gears of War series, with the exception of the first game which was also released for PC, it will be available exclusively for Xbox 360. So if you are an owner of a PC or Playstation 3, you are unfortunately out of luck.

Regardless of whether you are new to the series or a veteran player, 19th of March 2013 is a day that you certainly want to mark on your calendar. Perhaps even consider taking a few days off work and stockpiling on food. Because if Gears of War: Judgment meets its expectations, we will without a doubt have a serious contender for the game-of-the year award for 2013!

iPlayiTrade review: Trade games directly with players instead of trade-in at store.

As players, we usually trade-in our used games in store (Gamestop/EB) and buy used ones from them. However, there is a huge price discrepancy between how much retail stores sell for games and the trade-in value they is obviously not in our best interest. Retailers make huge profits over used game profit they made is the amount we could have saved.Actually, the first option is just an online version of trade-in, you can only get just a few bucks for most games.

The Second one seemed OK to me: You list the games you have and the games you want, the site matches you with people that have that games you want and want the games you third one is my least favorite given the process is fact is, it may take a very long time to trade your games for some points.Forums doesn’t work too well either as your post might get lost in hundreds of threads.

Finally, I find a better solution, it’s . The name speaks for itself, it’s built for players to iPlayiTrade, you can buy, sell or trade games directly with other players.Unlike other sites where you have to pay $1 dollar for each trade, iPlayiTrade is free for players to sell or trade their games, and free to list wanted items. It’s a combination of classified and auction site. If you are unable to trade your games for what you want, you can still sell it for cash. iPlayiTrade supports most of the online and offline payment methods. It also has options for you to arrange a local pick-up deal.Rating/feedback systems are in place so you know with whom to avoid trading. Furthermore, there is no final value fees.

iPlayiTrade is more flexible than other options I have mentioned above. Let’s take Call of Duty 4 as an example, if you trade-in a COD4 in store, you may get $20(cash or credit); at the same time, another player is paying $40 for this used COD4. The store made $20 profit in total. You can certainly do better than this. At iPlayiTrade, you can sell your COD4 directly to player who wants it; $30 would be a reasonable price for both of you. In this way, you get $10 more, and the buyer save $10. If you trade this game at a trading site for points, you have to toss the game into your offers queue and wait until the system finds a match. It may not take long for a popular game, such as COD4; on the other hand it may take a very long time for unpopular games. If you’re lucky they’ll give you the points immediately. Otherwise, you could end up waiting more than weeks for the system to automatically give you the points. The situation is different when you trade at iPlayiTrade, because you can trade directly with other players, there is no need to wait the system to find a match for you.

By using the advanced search, you can easily find the video games you want to buy or trade, and quickly find players who want to trade games with you.There are many search options, you can always combine two or more options together to get a more accurate example, you can search who wants to sell or trade a “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2”. You can find a player who wants to trade a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (COD6) for a “Bad Company 2” in your can also search the lowest price for a game you want with online payment (PayPal) available.

One of the nice benefits of iPlayiTrade is that they also providing trading/swapping for PC game, Movies and Toys. It makes possible for you to trade a used game to a Blue-ray movie. If you want to get the most value of your used games, iPlayiTrade is your best choice.

What I love most about iPlayiTrade is: you can trade games directly with local players. Once you find a player who has the game you want to trade for, you can just contact him/her and arrange a time and a place to meet. If you select “yes” for Local Pickup Available, the search result will show the players who are available for a face to face deal.

So, let’s Google and explore what other alternatives we may have. What I found was a variety of types of trading sites and options:

Sites that pay you cash for your games, such as Amazon.Sites that are. more-or-less, online swap meets.Sites that allow you to trade games for points and redeem points for trades, such as goozex.Forums where you post what you have/want.
