Rainbow Six Lockdown Part 6
The History Of The Rainbow Six Series Part 6
Get ready to dish out some more orders to your squad as we have a look at another one of the classic games in the Rainbow Six series.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Lockdown (2005) Xbox, PlayStation 2, Nintendo GameCube, PC

By now, Rainbow Six was one of the premier shooter franchises and for this installment, things to a bit more of an action heavy kind of feel. Once again you play as Rainbow team. In the year 2009, you have been tasked with putting a stop to a terrorist organization called Global Liberation Front who have a virus called Legion that they want to unleash.

The console versions of the game were certainly more action based. Added into the console versions were these sniper sections which had a real shooter gallery kind of feel as you had to pick off various targets. Interestingly these sniper sections were not in the PC game. While Rainbow Six Lockdown still featured many of the tactical elements from past games. Action certainly seemed to be the direction that Ubisoft wanted to take the series in.

This more action heavy game resulted in mixed reviews, especially for the PC version as many fans felt this was a dumbed down version of what they had come to love.

Both the PlayStation 2 and Xbox would get their own exclusive online mode with the PlayStation 2 having Rivalry and the Xbox having a mode called Persistent Elite Creation which was actually a huge deal and something many people got into. The GameCube version did not support online play, but it did have an exclusive 2 player co-op mode.

This is not one of the more popular games in the series and you could argue that the response it got made Ubisoft take a long hard look at the series. 

Overwatch Halloween Terror 2017 Is Now Live!

Overwatch is an awesome game. It is not just that it is a very fun and accessible first person shooter. But the whole style and lore behind it that has really gotten people hooked. Blizzard really did knock it out of the park.

Last year, Junkenstein’s Revenge was a huge success and now the mode is back as part of this year’s Halloween event. But rather than just playing through a few hordes of enemies. You can now play it for as long as you like in order to see how long you can last.

The real star though is the new Halloween themed skins which people are going crazy for and really praying that they are going to get when they open up a loot box. There is going to be a ton of cool new items for us to try and get and we have until the 2nd of November to get them which should hopefully be enough time to make it happen.

The fact that Blizzard is giving this away for free is one of the reasons that so many people get into Overwatch. Sure you have to grind like hell to get them all, but as the game is so much fun to play, many people really do not mind this at all.

So remember you have until November 2nd to take advantage of this. This is certainly something we are going to do as we were really bummed out last year when they took Junkenstein’s Revenge away after the event finished! 

Spray Bullets With Jitter Controller Mod

Jitter Mod Controllers

Ok, so we all know that any good game of Call Of Duty is just full of people running around the map, looking to kill anything that moves. Our series of high-end modded controllers for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Xbox 360 have some great mods, but one that we are really proud of is Jitter!

Now Jitter does not work on all of the Call Of Duty games, it is mainly used for the newer ones. But wow is it a ton of fun and it just makes having a game of Call Of Duty that extra bit fun or it can even get you out of a jam if you find yourself in the wrong part of the map all by yourself.

This mod is called Jitter because when you have it activated, you are actually shooting bullets at a faster rate than the game intends you to do! This is awesome and you literally just fill the screen with bullets and it is a lot of fun to see another player wonder just what the heck is going on as you do.
We know that using Jitter all the time may not be to everyone’s taste. That is why this mod still allows you to aim with the left trigger. When you do this and then fire, Jitter will not happen so you will still fire like normal.

If you like to have a little bit of fun every now and again and if you like that fun to result in lots of people getting blown away by your epic COD skills, turn on the Jitter mod and watch the bullets fly.

Today we are looking at one of the more interesting entries in the Rainbow Six series.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six 3: Black Arrow (2004) Xbox
As you would probably have expected Rainbow Six 3 on PC had plenty of expansion packs. Well during this time, Xbox Live was just starting to take off and Ubisoft saw this as an opportunity to test the waters with consoles have “expansion packs” while not the same as a PC expansion pack, Black Arrow allowed Xbox gamers to have some fun and play some more Rainbow Six 3.

Black Arrow was designed with Xbox Live in mind and the two main new things were the game modes Total Conquest and Retrieval. This was the main selling point of Black Arrow. As well as having these two online game modes, Lone Rush was an offline mode that could be played in multiplayer via split screen
.
While there was only a couple of game modes, Black Arrow actually did have some work done on a gameplay level. Ubisoft worked really hard to make the game a much more fun and fair online experience. The original console version of Rainbow Six 3 on Xbox had an exploit called “Lean Walking” that could make games very unfair. This was one of the main things that Ubisoft went in and fixed with Black Arrow.

With ten single player missions and an incredible 14 multiplayer maps. While Black Arrow was made with Xbox Live in mind there was still a lot to do here for the person who just enjoyed playing Rainbow Six 3 on their own.

As a first try to see if console gamers would be willing to pay a little more for an add on experience, Black Arrow was actually very well done and popular with fans of Rainbow Six 3.
