Today is a good day. Why? Shadows Of The Damned came out, and Fear 3 as well. Horror fans are going to have a busy week. Fear 3 is out on the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360, and for those who don’t already know, it’s going to focus much on the 2 player co-op campaign. The game revolves around 2 brothers, Point Man and Paxton Fettel. The brothers are the spawns of their currently pregnant (potentially with a demon baby?) mother Alma.
If you head past the break you can read the features and get up to speed on the story as well as checking out some screenshots.
I must admit, I’ve not been the biggest fan of the FEAR series thus far. Also, I have been a little confused as far as the Pointman and Fettel characters are concerned in Fear 3. But the video below definitely helped me clear up all that jazz. So if you have also been a little lost check it out.
F.3.A.R. will be out on the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360 on May 24th. READ MORE
It is no secret that “F.E.A.R” is one of the most popular horror franchises currently running in the world of video games, and with that said it should come as no shock that the release of the franchises’ third installment is one of the most hotly anticipated of 2011. Adding to the hype this week, Amazon.com announced that they will be releasing a prequel comic written by Steve Niles (“30 DAYS OF NIGHT”, “MYSTERY SOCIETY”) that will be available exclusively to those that pre-order the game through their website. The book will serve as connective tissue between the events of the new comic series on its way from Day 1 Studios and the events of the first game. Sweetening the deal, Amazon is also offering $20s back to whoever purchases the game, which will be available to them for any future purchase! Inside you can check out the announcement trailer for the game as well as a very special behind the scenes video and synopsis for the comic. Read on for the skinny!
Views tell me everything. If I post news about a game and nobody looks at it, I get the assumption nobody likes it, or no one is into it. As far as the Fear series goes, it’s a fairly big and popular game. I mean, they cranked out 2 sequels fairly quick since the originals release in 2005. But you just aren’t giving it the time of day.
So that makes me wonder, do you like the series, hate it, meh it? Tell me, I’m curious. Also, the story trailer above will give you some insight on the fucked up family that is Alma and her two sons, Point Man and Paxton Fettel. Fear 3 this May on the PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. READ MORE
Well, that would be today. March 15th. The same day that Caesar was betrayed by his friends and his brother Brutus. And not just betrayed, but murdered as well. In the video below (which the press release was VERY specific about age gating. Even though the video isn’t really bad like some others I’ve seen. So go ahead and read this yourself.) brothers Paxton Fettel and Point Man talk about their killing, sort of. This video may only be displayed if it is behind an age-gate that: (1) is age-neutral (i.e., requires the user to input their date of birth or select it from a drop-down bar; (2) employs reasonable technical measures to keep underage users from re-entering their age after initially being denied access; and (3) does not display any age rating information on the video player or the age-gate itself. Failure to implement these requirements may jeopardize your ability to obtain material of this nature from us in the future.
Nice warning right? Gotta love Warner Brothers. Fear 3 will be out this May on the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360. READ MORE
Setting the tone of a game can make it or break it. Sound, level design, and art style are discussed in the video below, and in a game like Fear, those are key elements.
Fear 3 will be out May 24th on the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360. READ MORE
The previous Fear games were scary no doubt. But this trailer for Fear 3, this makes me think the 3rd game in the series will be the scariest. Why? Well, Alma is pregnant. Which is only opening up more insane doors and possibilities for more Fear games. And on top of that, not only do you have crazy bitch Alma to deal with, but her insane demon seed baby as well.
In the 1st 2 Fear games, we only really got small glimpses into Alma’s mind. But as she gets closer and closer to giving birth, she starts losing it and you become engulfed in her insane world. Check out screens and more game info past the break. READ MORE
You got to see Pointman in action, so, how about Fettel? Pretty much a total badass. Check out some screen shots past the break, and look out for a ton more videos and screenshots from F.3.A.R. seeing as they overloaded us with them from Fear 2.
“Alma returns in F.E.A.R. 3 but this time her sons Point Man and Paxton Fettel are characters available to play in divergent co-op, giving players distinctly different abilities affecting their own play as well as the experience of their co-op partner. Gamers participate in single player or co-op modes as Point Man, and they can play cooperatively as his conniving brother Paxton Fettel whose incredible telekinetic power has given him life beyond the grave. “ The game is looking at a 3rd quarter release this year on the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360. Screens past the break. READ MORE
I’m starting to think maybe Fear 3 is going to be a live action movie. Check out this new trailer below. All live action. Why? Why would you do this to us? I don’t like it. I want game play. What are you hiding? If you want to make a live action movie make a live action movie then. Keep Uwe Bowl away from it.
Fear 3 is looking to be released in the 3rd quarter of this year for the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360. My predictions: It will be pushed back several times. READ MORE
F.E.A.R. 3 was announced yesterday, and today there is a live action trailer for the game you can check out below. I’m not really sure why they made it live action, but check it out, thoughts?
Officially announced from Warner Brothers today is Fear 3, or otherwise known as F.3.A.R. (Pronounced Fear 3.) Stupid. The game is already looking at an autumn 2010 release, but that will almost certain be pushed back.
The 3rd installment will dive into the wonderful world of co-op, and you take on the role of Point Man and the 2nd player is Paxton Fettel. Point Man is a “genetically enhanced super soldier” from the original F.E.A.R., and Paxton his brother Has telekinetic powers. Read on for more. READ MORE
It’s good to be a horror fan, or what I like to affectionately refer to as Thrill Enthusiasts. Someone might hear that term for the first time and think of something else, since at first a Thrill Enthusiast sounds like someone who enjoys getting their crazy on by tempting death through various scenarios like skydiving, spelunking, or base jumping. They would be incorrect in that assumption, unless you’re the rare type of individual who enjoys horror media and terrifying, Oh-God-Please-Please-Don’t-Fail-Mr.-Parachute activities. If you happen to fall under the latter category I commend you sir (or ma’am), as you are a borderline superhero.
But I digress, something I find myself doing more and more often lately. It’s almost gotten to the point where I need to hire someone to follow me with a buzzer, monitoring my level of alertness and… on-topic-ness. Of course, paying someone to do such a task would be a problem, and finding a talented soul with the patience to really follow through would most likely prove even more difficult. Wait, I just did it again. Just click the Read More button before my compulsive rambling gets the better of me. READ MORE
