Fight Night Round 4 - Review

So, Fight Night Round 4 has been released for the Xbox 360, and it looks pretty kick ass. The game had a vicious task, to release a sequel to a game which had helped shape this generation of gaming. Fight Nigh Round 4 sports some new changes to the career mode, different control mechanics, and also the developers have reworked every move in the game, as well as creating a new physics system. Punches fly, lips split, bruises form, sweat drips, all in flawless graphics that will make you feel like you are inside the ring. I will be starting a career mode and posting up screenshots and movies so you can check out some of the games footage yourself. (from a gamers perspective)
You can also check out a good review over at our friends IGN.

Go check out your local GameStop and pick up your copy of Fight Night Round 4!

New Nazi Zombie Map - Shi No Numa - with Map Pack 2

Call of Duty: World at War Map Pack 2 is now out for Xbox360. Included inside this map pack is a new map for the game that is becoming more and more popular since release; Nazi Zombies.

The map is called Shi No Numa, and instead of fighting nazis, this time we are up against Japanese.....nazis? The COOLEST thing I think about the new map is that it is more open world. You can go outside the house, run around in a swamp, and even activate different booby traps like a giant swinging log, or make for a quick getaway in the zip line car.

The map layout is pretty well done. Starting in a hut in the middle, you are given a choice to open doors to the corner areas of the map, mostly leading to a swamp like area with a hut on the far side. Now, once you open the door to the hut, a randomly chosen powerup is distributed to that hut. Hopefully, you get juggernaut first. At about round 6, the next new addition to the game begins. Nazi zombie dogs. Now do not take these things lightly. They will randomly spawn out of little burst of electricity My best advice would be to get your team into a corner and just take them out as they come. So far the highest round that I have personally gotten to is round 16. With 2 people. And it is insane. I am not sure of any Nazi Zombie glitches for Shi No Numa yet, but hopefully I can find one and post it up for all of you top leaderboard wannabes. The 3 gun glitch has been removed, so say goodbye to your favorite 5. The next new feature is the Wunderwaffe DG-2, a lightning like gun that shoots a chain lightning bolt that will hit multiple zombies as long as they are close. Good clutch weapon when you are getting swarmed. Finally, new achievements and trophies have been added;

Hammer Time
Repair 200 window boards in a single game. (Map Pack 2 only)

Its a Trap!
Kill at least one zombie with three different traps in a single round. (Map Pack 2 only)

Big Brawler

Soul Survivor

Plus a secret Trophy/Achievement

So far, 5/5 Nazi Zombie map. The best so far. Definately pick up Map Pack 2, and jump in the fun. If you ever want to play, add me as a friend on Xbox360, ROUNDWHEEL.
