Did anyone get my Human Giant reference? Didn’t think so, moving on. Coming out this month on the Xbox 360 in the Indie Games section is Ninja Exorcist from game devs Nebula Game Studios. The game takes us back to the wonderful days of 2D side scrolling, but of course adding the flash of the future with beautiful backgrounds with hand painted art in 1080p. Honestly the games quality looks like that of most games in the Xbox Live Arcade section, though it will be released in 3 episodes in the Indie section. Judging by the trailer and screens you can check out past the break, the game will feature a decent amount of RPG elements. Which honestly most games need nowadays to keep people hooked. Check out the goods past the break and keep an eye out for Ninja Exorcist’s 1st episode in the Xbox Indie Games section soon. All 3 episodes will later be released together on the PC.
Alien Fear is an upcoming first person shooter that’s running on Unreal 3. It’s coming out for the Playstation Network, and Xbox Live Arcade and looks damn good for a downloadable game. It’s pretty amazing to see how far games are coming year to year. Alien Fear looks as good as a lot of full price games that are out there. I don’t yet know if there will be much to the story, but you and other commandos are on a sabotage mission. It sounds like non stop action with friends just going to town on aliens. Alien Fear is looking to be released this fall.
Readers. Pay close attention. There is something about this game that pulls me in like a bee to honey. The mysteries of a seemingly unexplored world get my insides all jibbly. I know, thus far you are wondering what the frak I’m talking about. Let me explain. In Lifeless Planet you play as a lone astronaut who takes on a one way mission with a few others to a planet well outside our solar system. The planet brings promise of being like another Earth. Somewhere we could settle and grow into a habitable world. However, upon landing your astronaut friends go missing leaving you to explore this planet alone. But exploring you find a desolate land, that looks as if it was already temporarily inhabited by the Russians. They are no longer there and that becomes the mystery. Ugh, I can’t wait for this game. You must MUST check out the screens and the trailer past the break.
I never finished Borderlands, but the time I did spend with it was quite fun. The problem I had with Borderlands was it’s definitely a game that’s more fun to play with friends, and I came into the game a bit late so I didn’t get a good chance to play with friends. Anyhow, take it from me, play Borderlands 2 with some friends when it releases for the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360 on September 18th. Screens past the break.
Just in case Batman Arkham City wasn’t enough for you, you can satiate your lust for the Dark knight this holiday season with the Batman Arkham City: Armoured Edition exclusively for the Wii U. This version is said to have enhanced game play mechanics made possible by the Wii U. If you head past the break you can read all about those new mechanics, check out some screens and a video!
I used to skate many a year ago. I was never any good at it. But when I see Tony Hawks Pro Skater HD assets, I just want to grab my board and go hurt myself. The full soundtrack was announced which you can check out past the break. But I have to say I’m quite disappointed that there is only 1 song from THPS1 on there. It’s Goldfinger, and I love me some Goldfinger, but seriously that 1st games music as by far the best. Tony Hawks Pro Skater HD will be out sometime this summer, no official release date yet for the Xbox Live Arcade and Playstation Network. The game will run you 15 bucks, which I will happily pay for. Screens, soundtrack, and game info past the break.
The truth is out. Gabriel is a ruthless killer who sucks the life out of his victims in seconds. At least that’s what I got out of the trailer. In Lords Of Shadow 2 you play as Gabriel in his vamperic form. Even better, the Belmont Clan wants him dead. So you’ll have that little issue to deal with. Check out the official debut trailer and some screenshots past the break.
Earlier today Poland-based developer Reality Pump Studios unveiled Sacrilegium, a brand new survival horror game that’s in development for all major platforms. This is a big departure from the studio’s past work, which includes the new RPG series Two Worlds. I have some screenshots and a synopsis for the game waiting for you after the break, but you’ll have to earn it. I want you to say Sacrilegium five times fast without messing up, no cheating, I’ll know if you cheat, before you can read the synopsis. Now put those tongues to work, people!
Star Trek stars Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto will be making a comeback in video game form when they reprise their roles as Kirk and Spock in the upcoming Star Trek video game. But that’s not all because some of the other actors from the movie such as Zoe Saldana, (Lieutenant Uhura), Simon Pegg (Scotty), Karl Urban (Dr. “Bones” McCoy), John Cho (Sulu) and Anton Yelchin (Chekov) will be lending their voices as well. Also revealed at E3 this year are Trek lore villains knows as “The Gorn”. Lizard like creatures who will seem to be the main focus of evil in the game. Check out some screens and an awesome gameplay teaser past the break.
Black Ops was my first Call Of Duty. It took me in the back of a 69′ Chevy, totally railed me and never called me again. And I loved it. I never thought I would like a Call Of Duty game but Black Ops was different. I wasn’t the biggest fan of Modern Warfare 3, but naturally I’m excited for Black Ops II. Past the break you can find 3 new screens. I know it isn’t much, but that’ll do pig.
About a week ago Adam broke wind of the upcoming Doom 3 BFG Edition. Yes, I have turned “revealed” into “broke wind” permanently. Via what Adam previously stated the BFG is going to have some brand new levels, the Resurrection of Evil expansion, Doom 1 and 2, 3D support, 5.1 surround sound, and the ability to have a flashlight and a gun out at the same time. Which I honestly don’t remember having to have a flashlight out separately from the gun, but ah it’s nice to be pampered. Check out some excellent looking new screens past the break, and look for the game this fall on the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360. This would mark the 1st Doom game ever being released on the PS3.
If you know anything about Crysis, you know upon the originals release it was a game changer. It became the benchmark for high quality games. Oh you think you have a good PC? Well, can it play Crysis? Well from the looks of it I’m starting to think Crysis 3 is too good looking for our consoles. Head past the break for some screenshots and the E3 trailer. I hope your eyes don’t get diabetes from how sweet the trailer is.
If you don’t already know about this game then shame on you. For shame! The Last Of Us stars Ellie and Joel, 2 survivors of a plaque that has wiped out a majority of humanity. You fight to survive as you make your way across what’s left of the United States. The gameplay video you can see past the break is unreal. It’s so, smooth, so interactive, so detailed I could cry. This game goes straight to the top of my list. There are also some new screens past the break. The Last Of Us is a Playstation 3 exclusive from Naughty Dog, the developers of the Uncharted series.
So I’ve got some new screens from the amazing looking side scrolling horror game Deadlight from E3. However (and this happens a lot), some of the screenshots released we’re already released months ago. So I apologize. But that shouldn’t really get any of us down, because side scrolling horror? How often do we actually see that? Not often, so we should embrace the hell out of if when it comes along. Head past the break for the screen shots from E3. Also feel free to complain over the fact that this is going to be an Xbox 360/Live Arcade exclusive.
Just a few days back we broke wind of a new Gears Of War game to be announced at E3. Yes, broke wind. Well, Gears Of War: Judgement has been announced and it’s definitely not was I was expecting. I think most people looked at it as if it could be a prequel to the original series. Turns out, well, that’s pretty much the truth. However it doesn’t center around Marcus and Dom, but Baird and Cole. We can look forward to an epic back story coming to life and an all new multiplayer mode. Also, health grenades? Fuck yeah. Lots more past the break.
E3 is only on it’s first day and as usual every company has blown their gamey load all over. Now that I’m home from work, and hopefully you are too, let me start your evening out with an unholy amount of Halo 4. 343 Industries has taken over the Halo series from Bungie and from all the incredible goodies you can check out past the break, they’re doing an excellent job.
The steady drip feed of information regarding the highly anticipated Dead Space 3 continues with a slimy Necromorph spanking batch of screenshots that show off the game’s long-rumored co-op, as well as some new suits, weapons and hideous monsters with faces only a mother could love. Well, I love them too, but for entirely different reasons. When I see a Necoromorph’s face I’m overwhelmed with the urge to kiss it, but not with my lips, oh no sir, that’s too unsanitary. I want to kiss them on the face with the dangerous end of my plasma cutter. Ha! Good luck biting me after I’ve strategically dismembered your head from your body! I AM ADAM, TOAST ENTHUSIAST AND SLAYER OF NECROMORPHS. Oh, and check out the screenshots after the jump.
Adam’s been going Metro crazy lately, and with damn good reason. An underrated, under appreciated, and overlooked game is getting a second chance with a sequel. Check out these pre E3 screens past the break, and hopefully we can expect to see more coming up at E3.
If you miss your old skool survival horror, it may be time for you to blow the dust of your family friendly Nintendo Wii. It’s almost time to go back to your horrific roots. However, as much as this hurts my insides, Project Zero II: Wii Edition is coming out in Europe and Japan only. It’s almost mind blowing because I would have thought there would be an extremely large North American audience for it. Either way, me sad. My online searching tells me Wii’s are region locked, so that’s a bummer. Anyways, past the break you can check out a decent amount of screens, and those of you in Europe and Japan can look forward to the games re-release on June 28th in Japan and June 29th in Europe.
I’m hooked on the Mass Effect 3 multiplayer. I don’t know what it is but I love it. Yes, many times I find myself yelling at the tv because the cover system isn’t as perfect as Gears Of War. But it’s still incredibly addicting. With each new multiplayer it gets better and better. New weapons, new characters, and new maps keeps bring me back for more and more. The Rebellion Pack brings the largest change to the entire multiplayer system. 2 major factors in that are new in mission objectives, and new gear slots. Find out more and check out some screenshots past the break. The pack is out in North America on May 29 and in Europe on May 30.
A few days ago Adam gave you yet another awesome LOOK at some footage from The Last Of Us. Well if you head past the break you can check out a few new screenshots from the game as well. Naughty Dog is looking at a late 2012, early 2013 release for the game exclusively for the Playstation 3.
Later this month one of the best games of 2011 will be getting its first DLC. Coming May 29th to Batman: Arkham City is Harley Quinn’s Revenge, an all new story-based expansion featuring everyone’s favorite madwoman and the last batch of content coming to the game. It brings with it roughly two hours of single-player action where you’ll have the chance to kick unsuspecting goon ass as the Dark Knight and his wee sidekick Robin. If you haven’t had the chance to play Arkham City, now is the best time to do so since the Game of the Year edition is coming out on the same day. You can nab Harley Quinn’s Revenge for a paltry $9.99 on PSN or 800 Microsoft Who-wears-short-shorts-robin-wears-short-shorts Points on XBLA.
Recently announced is Dark, a 3rd person action stealth game for the PC, and Xbox 360. Even better, you play a VAMPIRE! That makes me more excited for the game because there haven’t really been many vampire games and most of the ones the ones that exist have been are a joke. In Dark you’re out to uncover the secrets of the global GeoForge Corporation. The press release doesn’t state why, but it sounds like they are the Skynet in a world of vampires. Head past the break for some cool screens and game info!
Look, I’ll be honest. Zombies mode was confirmed for Black Ops II. That’s all I really care about. Yeah the multiplayer is fun and I’ll probably enjoy the campaign, but it’s all about the zombies for me. 1st set of 6 screenshots you can check out past the break. The screens look good, but I’d still like to see some gameplay. A game like this doesn’t need to look great, but it SHOULD. Especially coming from a franchise that rapes the industry every time a new game is released. There is no excuse why these games don’t look infuckingcredible.
