CALL OF CUTY BLACK OP TIPS: Call of Duty: Black Ops is just a couple days old, but that doesn’t mean you need to head into virtual battle unprepared. You need tips for gathering XP and CoD Points, both essential for beefing up your arsenal with new weapons, killstreaks and attachments. Don’t think less of yourself for seeking out strategies for a military shooter — the U.S. armed forces impart the nugget of wisdom “Aim Towards Enemy” in rocket launcher instruction manuals — so think of this how-to guide for leveling up quickly and raking in CoD points as the gaming equivalent of friendly advice on how not to blow yourself up.

Halo: Reach just launched and we’re already obsessed with leveling up and scoring credits. Thanks to daily and weekly challenges, various multi-tiered commendations, constantly evolving user-made content, dozens of ranks and a store to spend the credits you earn from doing virtually anything in-game, Halo: Reach is far-and-away Bungie’s most complete (and addicting) addition to the Halo series.

The last thing most gamers do when they get home, rip the cellophane off a brand new game, pop it in and press ‘start’ is think to themselves, ‘I’m going to play this game multiple times until I discover the best possible course through it and then share the info with strangers on the Internet.’ For amateur video game videographers like Zach Sharpe and Mathieu Brunelle, it’s par for the course.
These unsung heroes put in countless hours for no pay and little fame just so we have some original, entertaining content that also spells out how to defeat that one boss we’re stuck on, or exactly where to find that last golden widget in the haunted forest. Though companies like Prima and BradyGames are still putting out print strategy guides and bigger game sites dedicate endless resources to crafting their own walkthroughs, Sharpe and Brunelle are just two of hundreds giving them a run for their money.
We reached out to both to find out how much work goes into their video guides and why they do what they do.

“Blockbuster” — a term typically reserved for Hollywood’s big-budget summertime offerings can now be easily applied to many video games. Love it or hate it, this is a direction many developers have chosen to trod. Sony’s PlayStation exclusive “Killzone” franchise easily falls under the controversial category, boasting high production values, cutting-edge graphics and giant guns.
The latest entry in the series, “Killzone 3,” is out now and offers multiple game modes, including its unique spin on the now-standard multiplayer component that breeds friends and enemies in equal measure.
We’ve compiled helpful strategies from around the internet for gamers that prefer to socially frag as well as their more solo-minded counterparts. The following guides and walkthroughs will prove beneficial no matter which category you belong to: single-player commando or online team player.
