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.
Fortnite is quite a far leap away from Epic Games previous powerhouse Gears Of War. But that isn’t a bad thing. Fortnite is taking on a totally different look and feel from Gears, and though I’m not necessarily excited about the game I do have quite a bit of interest in it. I’m always excited to see what a game company can do with a game when they reach outside the norm.
Fortnite is going to be a co-op sandbox type game where you spend your days gathering supplies, scavenging, and building your fortifications to fight off demons at night. The best part? It’s running on the brand spanking new Unreal 4 Engine that was crafted by Epic Games, so expect some amazing looking graphics and all around magic. The only downside for you console jocks, PC only. Screens past the break.
Common of many of the handheld devices, they don’t get the sequels but the spinoffs. Same goes for Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow – Mirror Of Fate. Our major consoles are getting Lords Of Shadows 2, while the latter is coming to the Nintendo 3DS. Mirror Of Fate takes place about 25 years after the original game as it follows Gabriel’s descendants.
Head past the break for the games details and some new screenshots straight from this years Comic-Con.
After the success of Amnesia, the point and click horror nightmare it’s not a surprise more scary point and click games are surfacing. Most fall to the wayside but I have a good feeling about Anna. Anna plays off of your mental heath as you go through the game solving puzzles and facing presences in the games locations. Depending on your mental health different things change throughout the game which in the end will give you one of 3 possible endings. The game takes place in a recreated Old Saw Mill that actually exists in Valle d’Aosta, Italy. Check out some screens, videos and game info past the break. If you are interested in the game it comes out July 16th on the PC. You can PRE-ORDER it now to save a dollar, bringing the price from $9.90 to $8.99.
The single game that made me buy a Sega Saturn? Nights. Why? Because back in the day flying was a big deal. Now we have tons of games where you fly around like it’s no big deal. But back in the days of the glorious Sega Saturn, a game like Nights opened up the minds of young gamers like myself to glorious new worlds. Well, coming this fall to the PC, Playstation Network, and Xbox Live Arcade NiGHTS Into Dreams will be re-released in HD. Wondrous HD. Lots more past the break!
Something I missed announced at E3 was the remake of the original Painkiller. Never having played the game myself I am quite looking forward to Hell and Damnation’s release. I haven’t read anything about what platforms it will be released on though the original was released on the PC. From my studies the game was re-released about a million times and has had several expansion packs since it’s 2004 release. There is also no word if Hell and Damnation will contain those expansions, but I would hope so. Screens past the break, more info as it comes.
If you read our PREMATURE EVALUATION of Silent Hill: Book Of Memories then you may already know I think this game is going to be pretty terrible. Though I must say after seeing some of these screen shots, the ones you can see past the break, I have a little more faith in the game. Not much, but a little. I mean it looks like the gore is there, the fucked up monsters, amazing looking locales, but is it enough to make this a good game? Or should it be stripped of all Silent Hill branding?
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.
