Our post E3 podcast is up, we know it took a while but we spent a lot of time on this particular podcast, we had so much to say on the happenings of E3 that we had to break it up into multiple parts. So check out what we liked, disliked and just plain hated
Lost Planet: Extreme Condition back in January 2007 brought us a new IP from Capcom. It gave us a fresh experience from third person shooters; Being able to control mech's and vehicles alike to take down the enemy in the games ice age conditions. Thats why consumers will be eager to get they're hands on Lost Planet 2 and is easily becoming one of the most anticipated games in the office this year
After a (much needed) hiatus it seems like the Splinter Cell series is making its return. Spinter Cell Conviction is back with all the stealth you've come to expect, this iteration looks to have no boundaries of what Sam Fisher is ultimately after; Revenge!. Although we haven't heard much about the multiplayer aspect of the game, these amazing vids of the single player should hold you over until we get word
While Pure opened our eyes to a new form of ATV the fall of 2008 and glad to announce the king is back!. This holiday season prepare yourself for an all new Rhythm Racing physics engine 2.0, Rider Reflex control system and real-time terrain deformation.
Their is no doubt when Capcom announced that it will be bringing Tatsunoko vs Capcom over to American shores the 1% that did everything they could to import it got upset for the amount of money they spent. The other 99% of fans heads were exploding of the mere thought that they will be able to enjoy another Capcom vs game with characters of the likes they've never heard of
Need for Speed is one of the main stays of racing games, the franchise has dominated the genre since it first appeared years ago and hasn't backed down since. Now with much more competition in the market the series looks to continue delivering excellent racing experience. Shift looks pretty amazing so far, the graphics are sleek and polished, while running at a smooth frame rate. The game definitely seems to emphasize the driver view as seen in the trailer. The game is also said to have a whole slew of customization capabilities, giving players the freedom to trick out their rides as they please. Check out the video and gallery to see more.
The first Battlefield Bad Company was a pretty big hit when it was released about a year ago, for the first time the game put players in the role of actual characters rather than the no name generic ones of the previous battlefield games. The game also allowed for destructible environments, and energetic multiplayer. Bad Company 2 follows this formula and stays close to it, the game appears to be much sleeker in presentatioin, and seems to add more gameplay in a variety of forms. One of the major aspects in the orignal bad company was the vehicles and the new title looks to do more with them. Click to view gallery
One of Nintendo's biggest games shown at E3 was of course Red Steel 2, the game taking place in a unique fantasy setting was the interest of many at the show. Red Steel 2 promises very accurate controls compared to the original, this is due to the Wii motion plus which will be required to play the game. From the gameplay videos and demos shown the game seems like it's shaping up rather well, with the ability to switch between sword and gun at anytime. Red Steel 2 along with, the new Dead Space, and Resident Evil titles looks to bring in an older audience on the kid friendly platform. Click to view more images
Probably the least expected and talked about sequel made an appearance today June 1st 2009 at Microsoft's E3 press conference: Crackdown 2 was shown in trailer form. For those of you you who missed the first game, its a sandbox game similar to Grand Theft Auto, only your a cop that can become supercharged allowing you to jump, run, and attack in a way that's closer to a super hero than an officer. Not too many details of the title are out yet, the trailer was not that of gameplay footage. We'll have the info of how the game will play soon
A new batch of images and videos on DJ Hero has surfaced online. As suspected the gameplay of DJ Hero looks very similar to Guitar Hero, the main difference being that there are only three buttons instead of five, to compensate this there are two "equalizers" on the side of the turntable. This new feature brings the possible amount of buttons and positions to the standard five, however it also seems to matter in what directions the player "scratches" the disc. Check out the images and video to see the game that will most likely be one of the hottest selling music game in stores
