In today’s age we have all sources to read books. We have the Internet, our cell phones, Amazon’s Kindle, Barnes & Noble’s Nook, and our tablets. And of course we have the old fashioned paperbacks, but seriously who the fuck reads those? I know I don’t anymore. Anyway, what if I told you that there was a way you could actually interact with your book? Sounds nifty and futuristic right? Well my friends, the future isn’t that far away because Sony Computer Entertainment London Studio is developing a way for us to be able to interact with books exclusively for the Playstation 3 called Wonderbook.
Let’s face it: We all love Disney and we all love Mickey, the symbol of Disney. If you don’t, you’re not American, so get the fuck out of America. Anyways, we have had history of Mickey released video games, with an iconic one being Disney Epic Mickey. The title itself really sells it, I mean epic is right in the damn title, you can’t miss it. But now, we have a sequel to Disney’s Epic Mickey with Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two.
So, to no real surprise, the famed and ever popular first-person-shooter series Call of Duty makes a triumphant return. This time, Treyarch took the reins with the sequel to their smash hit Call of Duty: Black Ops with Call of Duty: Black Ops II. The cool thing though, is that this installment of the series will be featured on the Wii U and better yet, the graphics and gameplay on this upcoming console will be rivaled to that of the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC.
After much and much time and seeing it at E3 and wanting it so bad to taste it, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier is finally becoming available for all of us gamers to get our grubby little hands on. This is the fifth Ghost Recon series and is the second game to actually receive a “Mature” rating and has been known to have a darker tone than the previous games in the series.
Guns, guns, and more guns! I can never get enough guns and ammo to pick up in a post-apocalyptic world. Of course, what makes some of these guns unique is just the fact that some shoot electricity, fire, corrosive, I mean shit who’s not gonna love that?! I know I would. This world of Pandora was brought to us first in the game Borderlands. Guess what gamers? Borderlands has made a return with its sequel Borderlands 2. That’s right, more gun-toting action by yourself or with friends.
So gamers, ready to head back into the Animus? Well too fucking bad if you haven’t had enough rest. Grab your hidden blade as we dive into Ubisoft’s next installment in this epic adventure. We explore more of the mystery of Desmond even though we still barely know anything, but hey, it’s been a great adventure right? So in the greatest tradition, we’ll just continue this magical train ride into history.
Fighter games traditionally don’t feature anyone with weapons. Well, let me strike that, the Tekken series did have Yoshimitsu and off-hand I can’t think of traditional characters who really used weapons unless it was their own fist, except for a Mortal Kombat installment or two, but anyway I’m getting off track. The talk today is about a fighter game that actually does feature weapons for all fighters, of course now I am referring to Soul Calibur V.
Never thought you’d return to Raccoon City huh? I think Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City definitely proves that you would most certainly be wrong. In this new installment of the Resident Evil series, characters from past Resident Evil games return to ground zero, where the zombie outbreak first began.
To be honest, this version of Resident Evil just seems really super power and supercharged. First off, there’s notable members of both Umbrella and people trying to stop them along with the virus. For the Umbrella team, there is Ada Wong, HUNK, Nicholai Ginovaef and a new character brought into the Resident Evil franchise called Lone Wolf. For the other side, which I think has been dubbed heroes there is Leon Kennedy, Claire Redfield, Jill Valentine, and Carlos Oliveira.
If that hasn’t got you gamers fucking excited yet, just wait it gets even better. Operation: Raccoon City features a multiplayer mode, which to our knowledge has been the first time done in a series. Players would take on the roles of the characters listed above, and each one, on either side has its perks to bring to the team. One of the most notable modes is a co-op mode where players will try to eliminate the other team, using any means necessary of course. Along with that, there are other modes, one of them being called Team Attack, where players will try and rack up as many kills as they can. Another mode called Biohazard, where players must fight Umbrella to retrieve and escort samples back to the base. There is another mode called Survivors where players must survive before help would arrive to them. Last but not least, there is the Heroes mode, where players must fight and defend iconic characters.
With all that in mind, not only is Umbrella or the Heroes a threat, but so is still the outbreak of the zombies and other creatures from Umbrella’s scientist’s creations. With a new (hopefully) installment of multiplayer, and a new installment in one of our favorite zombie hunting series (which we all love so damn much), I bring you gamers, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City. So go out there and not only kick some zombie ass, but take out Umbrella (or the Heroes depending on who you play)!
So, the True Crime series makes a triumphant return, but there’s a difference, this one isn’t exactly called True Crime. Yes, the original title got scrapped and formed the new name of Sleeping Dogs.
Once called True Crime: Streets of Hong Kong, Sleeping Dogs makes a violent bust onto video game markets. The core of the gameplay gives players the open world environment that we all just fucking love. It’s played over-the-shoulder in the third person perspective. Now, time for a little bit of story time (yay!). The player takes control of Wei Shen, a Chinese-American police officer as he goes undercover to infiltrate the notorious Sun On Yee Triad crime organization.
Players will have the ability to walk, jump, run, climb over obstacles and swim, as well as commandeer cars, boats, and motorcycles. Also, if you’re looking for a game with guns blazing and all that kind of shit that we generally see with a game like this, you might have to look elsewhere, because this game features more hand-on-hand combat which the player will actually improve on as the game progresses. Players will also have three different experience point systems. They are: Triad XP, Face XP and Police XP. The Triad and Police XP measure Wei’s devotion to either the Triads or the police, while the Face XP is a measure of Wei’s general reputation.
On a final note, while players don’t have the multiplayer option, there are going to be scoreboards for players to rate themselves amongst their friends. So get out there and get your copy of Sleeping Dogs and kick ass in whichever way you choose!
I’ll admit, when I first saw Lego games coming out and saw what they were like, I honestly said, “Those look like fucking stupid kid games.” WOW was I wrong! I cannot tell you how often I spent an evening intoxicated with a 6 pack of beer and playing the Lego games because they were that fun. We’ve already seen the likes of Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and yes the Dark Knight himself, and that’s what this article is covering actually, the Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes game.
According to sources, the game is actually a sequel to the previous Lego Batman, and will feature a large variety of playable DC characters within the Batman realm and also outside of the Batman realm. A new thing that this game will feature that I think is a first within the Lego series (if not whatever) is dialogue, which is AWESOME! It’s better than hearing grunts and whatever sounds the characters make and makes the game’s story a lot better in my opinion.
If that wasn’t all cool enough for you, there’s definitely more. The new Lego Batman will feature an open world concept and feature gameplay similar to its predecessor. As mentioned before players will get to play as characters in the Batman realm, but also other iconic characters from the DC world will be playable including: Batman (naturally), Robin, Nightwing, Batgirl, Green Lantern, The Flash, Black Canary, Superman, Martian Manhunter, Hawkman, Hawkgirl, Cyborg, Aquaman, and of course Wonder Woman. According to rumors, there will be over 70 playable characters (so I’m guessing supervillains as well from the DC comics). The game will feature a 2-player co-op mode, and since the environment is open-world they will split the screens (THANK GOD!!)
Whew, that was definitely a shit ton of information in such a small article. But yes, for those of you Batman fans who liked the Lego games or maybe haven’t tried them, PICK THIS FUCKING GAME UP!! Enough said, if you gamers haven’t played the first one, do it so you know what you’re in for.
