Star Trek is coming in early 2013 to the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360 early next year. I’m pretty excited about the game. Ever since recently jumping into the Mass Effect series I’ve gotten an itch for space games. Hopefully Star Trek will scratch it good. The game features the voices of all the main cast from the recent Star Trek reboot. Check out some awesome new screens and art past the break.
Coming December 10th is Halo 4′s first map pack “Crimson“. It will be priced at 800 Microsoft Splatters, although you can buy the Halo 4 map pass for 25 bucks saving you 5 dollars across all 3 map packs. The Crimson Pack includes 3 new maps Harvest, Shatter, and Wreckage. Also included is the new multiplayer mode, Extraction. Want more? Past the break are more screenshots, a trailer, and more info.
You like killing zombies with whatever’s near you at the time? Of course you do. Dead Island: Riptide has gamers like you in mind, because it’s all about bashing unsuspecting zombies right in their stupid, ugly heads — or better yet, you can strap a car battery to a machete and cut it to little, electrified giblets. Riptide promises more of what made the first game great, including loads of weapons and beautiful tropical environments brimming with zombies for you to use those weapons on. There’s also a dynamic weather system that can cause flash floods, adding an element of unpredictability to the gameplay. If this sounds like your bag, I highly recommend checking out this new batch of screenshots, after the jump.
Mass Effect 3′s next DLC entitled Omega, has you joining up with Aria T’Loak, and Nyreen Kandros. Omega has been taken by Cerberus General Oleg Petrovsky, and Aria needs Shepard’s help to take back the black market station. 4 playable missions will be in the DLC. I’m not sure where in the Mass Effect timeline the DLC falls, but I suppose the only way to find out is to buy it! It comes out November 27th on the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360. Screens past the break.
Into The Dark follows a private investigator (you), who encounters way way more than he bargained for in a New England cabin. Into The Dark won “Most Surprising Game of the Show” at Gamescom this year. Basically you can expect a creepy zombie fps, also filled with puzzles, adventure, and some RPG elements. Check out the trailer and some screens past the break. You can download the game from multiple download portals online as the game is exclusively for the PC.
Jk jk. Though upon looking at the above image that was exactly what I thought. Painkiller Hell & Damnation was released Halloween only on the PC. Those console gamers will have to wait until January 22nd, 2013 for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 releases. Painkiller H&D is a remake of the original Painkiller from 2004. You can play the main campaign 2 player co-op and up to 8 player online multiplayer survival mode. I’ve never played the original but I’m definitely interested in picking this up. Awesome new screens past the break.
Enola is a mystery horror game for the PC. My best guess for a baby factor, Myst meets Amnesia. Which is an awesome combo. In Enola, like in many games you awaken not knowing who and where you are. You search the island you wake up on for clues, solve puzzles, while trying to find out who you are and how to escape. You can buy the game for $2.50 down from the usual 10 dollars for a limited time from GamersGate. The game is not yet finished, it is in Alpha. However purchasing the game in alpha allows you to play it now in its unfinished state, and you get access to all future updates. Screens, info, and video past the break.
Out today for Minecraft on the PC, is a Far Cry 3 inspired map and texture pack you can download for free. If they haven’t already released it for download, you should be able to download it right from the the official Far Cry website. You basically get to experience Minecraft as you would experience Far Cry 3. The map includes over 50 easter eggs, key FC3 locations, and even characters. Sounds like it’ll be pretty awesome, and it’s free. Screens past the break.
Killing Floor is one of the few games that offers kick ass holiday events. Well this Halloween will be no different as we are thrown into one of my worst nightmares. Hillbilly Horrors! It’s running now until the November 6th, and for the duration you can get 75% off Killing Floor and 50% off all DLC for the game. The DLC comes with a completely rednecked out new map, new weapons, achievements, an unlockable character and more. Head past the break for all the goods as well as a bunch of new screens.
If you played the Mass Effect series and know a bit of its lore, the Collectors posed quite a threat in the second game. Well those punk bitches are back in the Retaliation DLC. That’s not all though. This pack is going to be HUGE. One of my favorites is an addition of “hazards” to the regular maps. Lightening, sandstorms, whiteouts and more.
New weapons, new class kits, new upgrades, some of the enemy factions will be getting new allies to fight against you. This DLC is really going to change the mulitplayer up. You only have to wait until October 9th to get it. Though waiting until Tuesday sucks because there goes your week. You can download it October 9th on the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360 for free. Check out a trailer and some screen shots and all the details past the break.
We saw the teaser. We’ve been patiently waiting for the Zombies Mode trailer. Past the break you can check it out, and it does not disappoint. What I’m really hoping for eventually is another star studded cast to fight the hordes. I’m also waiting for Treyarch to DO A STANDALONE ZOMBIE GAME. I know they’ve got it in them. But I suppose as long as they are chained to the Call Of Duty franchise they may never have the time to fit that in. Check out the awesome trailer past the break, pre-order the game to get the Nuketown Zombies map.
If only several months back I had known BioWare would be releasing a Mass Effect Trilogy I maybe would have held off on going through the series. Regardless, coming November 6th for $60 bucks you can get all 3 Mass Effect titles in one neat little package. There is no word on whether any of the DLC will be included, but at this point I’m going to guess that it’s not. Past the break for screen shots.
I’m not sure if any of you remember Zombie Driver. I posted about it so long ago I’m not sure if I even had pubes. Ok, well maybe not that long ago. The easiest way to sum up Zombie Driver is think original Grand Theft Auto. Except you drive around in a totally modded kick ass car destroying zombies. Previously released on the PC, but now downloadable on the Xbox Live Arcade. You can pick it up for 800 Splattered Microsoft Zombies. Check out a trailer past the breaks, and more screenshots.
Over 2 years ago I introduced you all to Afterfall: Insanity. We hadn’t really heard much up after that. The game came out almost a year ago to very mediocre scores. The newest version of the game is supposed to be quite a step up from its initial release. Adam also brought it back to us thanks to Steam’s Project Greenlight. I played a demo quite a while back and honestly I was quite bored by it. I’m hoping this updated version can pull it away from it’s 50% Metacritic score. New screens past the break.
Steam just unveiled its majestic and wonderful Big Picture Mode. I was using it lying in bed and scrolling around the fantastic streamlined dashboard on my tv also with an Xbox 360 controller. I decided to splurge and buy myself a game to try with my new set up. To The Moon had previously caught my eye when I noticed a friend bought it. The game was just released on Steam, although it has been out for almost a year. So consider this a late review. The game resembles many of my past, the Super Nintendo era RPG. Though To The Moon is not itself an RPG, did it live up to my extremely high standards? Head past the break to find out.
TWC Games, which is basically the video game department over at The Weinstein Company announced that now available exclusively for the Xbox 360 are Hellraiser Revelations Avatar items. The collection contains 10 different items ranging in price from 80 Microsoft Head Pins to 320 Microsoft Bull Shit Dollars. You can buy props, t-shirts, full costumes and more. Head past the break for a trailer and some screens so you can get a full look at all the Pinheaded goodies.
Silent Hill BOM (Bowel of movements) screens are here straight from this years PAX. I unfortunately don’t see myself making the purchase of a PS Vita anytime soon so I hope this gets ported elsewhere so I can give it a slam dunk into the garbage can. Anyone else have as little faith in this game as I do? Check out more screens past the break.
No, it’s not that kick ass movie staring the dude from Twilight and the chick from Lost. It’s a newly announced game from Capcom that takes place about 70 years in the future. Where memories can be bought, sold, and traded. You play as Nilin, a memory hunter, whose memory gets wiped clean by authorities out of fear of everything she knows. May of 2013 is the supposed release on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. Trailer and artwork past the break.
Something pretty awesome aside from the super awesome looking storyline in Far Cry 3 is its 4 player co-op mode. You and 3 friends can experience something completely different from the campaign, as you work together to take out the captain of a ship. Head past the break to see an awesome trailer for the co-op campaign, and some screens. Look out for Far Cry 3 December 4th on the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360.
Update: Thanks to our wonderful readers I have discovered the game IS available in the US. You can get it HERE!
For those of you who have been around BD and more so Dead Pixels know that Final Fantasy VII is my favorite game of all time. Well, you can download the digital PC version now from HERE for €9.99 normally €12.99. The problem for me, is that I, living in the US, cannot download the game. I’ve never been more let down. Head past the break for screens, a trailer, game info, and whatever I don’t give a crap.
We aren’t being battered down by The Last Of Us screenshots, and trailers and I’m completely fine with that. Too often we get waaayyy too much about a game it almost seems as if when it comes out we wont be able to be surprised at all. Well straight from Gamescom this year we have an all new trailer and some new screen shots from The Last Of Us, which will be exclusively hitting the Playstation 3 hopefully early next year. Head past the break for the goods.
Well, you’ve come to the right place! No I personally can’t make it happen, but I can tell you how. All you have to do is buy the Firefight Pack. It’s out right now on the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360. It’s only 2 bucks, or 160 Microsoft Gold Medals. The pack stocks your campaign locker with the Indra and Krysae sniper rifles, Reegar Carbine, Harrier battle rifle, Geth SMG, plus an all-new Blood Pack Punisher SMG and Adas Anti-Synthetic rifle. The least you can do is pay Bioware 2 dollars after they’ve given you 400 million new awesome maps and multiplayer gifts for free.
The War Z snuck up on us just like the shambling corpse of one of your dearest friends who owes you money, and that you have no reservations about putting a bullet betwixt his or her eyes. The War Z is an open world zombie MMO through and through. It’s almost as if Dead Island and The Secret World got it on and got really freaky and out came this glorious zombie baby. The game was only announced 2 short weeks ago and the closed beta instantly filled up. The nice thing about such a late announcement is that I don’t have to sit around for an entire year pining over the game. Head past the break for some awesome screenshots and more info.
Tony Hawks Pro Skater HD came out yesterday and the timing couldn’t be more perfect. It’s been raining quite a bit in Chicago/Chicagoland the past couple days. Don’t get me wrong, I’m ecstatic about it because we’ve pretty much been going through a drought followed by random high humidity heat waves. When I play most Tony Hawk games I want to go out and skate afterwards. But I can’t, so I’ve been inside playing more Tony Hawk instead. Upon the release of the game, it was also announced they are working on even more levels for DLC. The maps in THPS HD are taken from the 1st and 2nd game, the 1st DLC will contain maps from THPS 3. Check out this video as Tony Hawk tells you all about it.
Hopefully the game will do well enough that they will keep releasing new maps as DLC. If you head past the break you can check out a new trailer, tons screenshots, and game features.
