Some big releases this week. It ‘s time to prepare to die again- and again and again- as Dark Souls II hits the PS3 and Xbox 360 on Tuesday (sorry, PC users- you have to wait until April). It looks like Drangleic will present as much of a challenge to survive as Boletaria and Lordran did. For online shooter fans, Titanfall releases this week for Microsoft’s consoles and the PC, adding mechs to the mix in what looks to be more than just another sci-fi military shooter. The Coen brothers folk singer fable Inside Llewyn Davis hits home video, and another video game franchise gets a crack at the silver screen when Need for Speed, starring Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul, roars into theaters Friday. So, without any further delay, here’s this week’s list...Read More
A new trailer has been released for Ubisoft’s upcoming open world action game. Check it out below (trailer courtesy of gamespot).
As you can see at the end of the trailer, Watch Dogs will be coming out on May 27 for the PS4, PS3, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC. A Wii U version will be released at a later date, which we’ll bring you as soon as it’s announced.Read More
The first episode of Telltale Games The Walking Dead: Season Two, All That Remains, consisted of a lot of set-up for the new season, catching us up with Clementine post Lee and introducing a new group for Clem to deal with. With that out of the way, the second episode, A House Divided, is able to dive right into the action, and gives us plenty of it along with some nice character moments. Between suspenseful combat and escapes, and Clem’s interaction with the other characters, Telltale has crafted possibly their best episode yet...Read More
Rocksteady released a new trailer today announcing the next installment in the Batman: Arkham series. Take a look below (trailer courtesy of WBGamesUK ).
Batman: Arkham Knight will be next gen only, releasing later this year for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The game will feature Scarecrow as the primary villain and have Harley Quinn as a playable character. In addition to Scarecrow and Quinn, other villains will include Penguin and Two-Face. The game’s events take place a year after Arkham City, and players will have the opportunity to drive the Batmobile through the streets of Gotham. Stay tuned for more information.Read More
You have to admit, women are the best thing that can happen in a man’s life. But what of the women in video games? Call me a freak for liking them, but I do like a strong woman, or in the case of Ada Wong (Resident Evil series), a mysterious woman (though that feeling faded when Resident Evil 6 was released). Not because of her being remodeled, but something seemed amiss with her appearance in the game. I wonder if it might have been how Capcom managed to mess with Ada’s characterization.
Speaking of Resident Evil, I first fell in love with Jill Valentine in Resident Evil: Nemesis. Illogical fashion choice aside, Capcom really made Jill as sexy as possible. Of course, that is when I’m still a kid, not yet knowing the definition of strong women, so I attracted by her sex appeal...Read More
For the first week of March we have a couple of major releases. The biggest game this week would be South Park: The Stick of Truth, which was developed by Obsidian Entertainment (Fallout: New Vegas) in collaboration with South Park Digital Studios (the show’s creators, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, wrote the game’s script) and is being published by Ubisoft. From the trailers and videos of gameplay, it looks and feels like playing an episode out of South Park as you move Kenny, Stan, Kyle, and Cartman through a turn based fantasy adventure. Also out this week for the PC and PS3 is the second episode in Telltale Games The Walking Dead: Season Two...Read More
At its best, Thief makes you feel like a master, as you move through shadows silently, evading guards and pilfering whatever shiny object you can get your hands on. The stealth aspect is done quite well, and a feature called swoop that enables you to move quickly from cover to cover can make you feel like a ninja. Had the game opened itself up and utilized its strong point this would’ve been great. Sadly, Eidos Montreal didn’t go that route. Too often you’re forced along a predetermined path. See something you should be able to climb? You can only do so when the game allows you too. And it rarely opens up optional paths, though you will find some over the game’s eight chapters. Exploration should be something you want to do in a game like this...Read More
