New Blog Section, Gears of War 3 Maps, Unit 13 Demo, and Mass Effect 3 in Space?

Hello All,

New Blog Section
A quick thank you to reader Leo for suggesting a new blog section for the custom covers I designed for PDP's Crystal Case and my upcoming Vita backgrounds. This new section should help the main page stay clean while providing a home base for all of my custom Vita content. As previously stated, I am willing to create custom backgrounds or case covers. Simply comment on the new "Customize your Playstation Vita" tab with your request and I'll see what I can do! I can also create non-video game related themes but you will have to link me to your personal pictures. If demand continues to increase for personal images I'll work on making it a bit easier to get your images to me directly and privately. Please note that the images I used in the creation of each case are very large. The final product comes to 2325x1125 pixels; keep this in mind with your requests.

Thank you for your interest and support of the covers and be sure to check back often and link to me when appropriate.

New Gears of War 3 Maps
On March 27th, Gears of War 3 Season Pass owners will be receiving their final piece of DLC, the Forces of Nature Map Pack. For non-season pass owners it will cost you 800 Microsoft Points or $10. The map pack contains three new maps, Artillery, Cove, and Aftermath, along with Raven Down from the original Gears of War and Jacinto from Gears 2. In addition to the multiplayer maps, Horde mode will also see the addition of the flaming cleaver along with the electrified cleaver. As for character skins, this map pack will contain the previously pre-order exclusive Commando Dom, Mechanic Baird, and Savage Hunter.

Jacinto is back in Gears of War 3

It is sad to see the Gears of War 3 Season Pass already coming to an end but there has been plenty of content to make the $30 worthwhile. I only hope that in the future some of my favorite maps from Gears 1 and 2 can make it into the third as free DLC.

Upcoming Unit 13 Demo
This upcoming Tuesday a demo for Unit 13 will be making its way onto the Playstation Store. The demo is set to contain access to one Direct Action mission that will be playable with all six operatives. One of the nicest parts of this demo is that it will support online leaderboards and all of your scores and level progression will carry over to the full game.

Unit 13 Demo coming this Tueday
Be sure to look for my impressions of the demo next week.

Mass Effect 3 in Space?
In a very unique publicity stunt, EA will be launching six copies of Mass Effect 3 into space! Fans will be able to track the games on Mass Effects Website via an onboard GPS. Being the first person to find the game when it lands will snag you a copy of the game a solid week before the rest of the world.

Happy Hunting!
