Need for Speed: Most Wanted was without a doubt a highly welcomed addition to the Need for Speed series on the previous generation of consoles, while the series has had its ups and downs from then on I have always had high hopes for a new Most Wanted and the long wait since 2005 is finally over as it has now been confirmed that EA will show case a new Need For Speed: Most Wanted along with the new Battlefield 3 DLC. I know I am very excited just by hearing the announcement and I hope that the sequel supersedes the original in every way including the free roam and the unimaginable customization, not to mention one of the best cops and robbers styles of game play I ever played on the PS2. Please EA don’t let us fans down.
Hitman: Absolution see’s the return of everyone’s favorite silent assassin, but this time things are more personal and the game will be more dynamic and unexpected than any other Hitman game ever made, Agent 47 isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty since someone he loves is now in danger and he is willing to unleash his talents to the fullest to rescue her. While the game is still a few months away you can avail a pre-order bonus early by playing the Sniper Challenge which is a relatively small game for fans to enjoy and gives us a taste of what to expect in Absolution.
So Lollipop Chainsaw is a unique zombie action adventure game starring Juliet Starling who is a female Frank West / Chuck Greene but doesn’t shy away from zombies without a strong arsenal of make shift weapons. Equipped with her own “unique” arsenal of weapons including a skimpy cheerleader outfit, pom poms and a chainsaw she isn’t one to need duct tape or a work bench anytime soon. But with unique weapons come unique bosses, meet the various bosses you will have to face down and defeat, but these aren’t your modern western developer bosses. These bosses have gotten the touch of “only in Japan”, to see what I mean just watch the whole trailer.
While the force was not strong with Star Wars Kinect it seems that the game series still has a chance of coming back into the spotlight with a new mystery game to be announced at this years E3 2012, so far the only hint about the game is Lucasarts has trademarked the name Star Wars 1313 but it is a striking resemblance to Boba Fett’s alias “CT – 1313″ in a novel titled “Boba Fett: Maze of Deception”. This could be a potential hint that the game is based on Boba Fett which is really possible considering Jango Fett was able to get his own game on the previous generation consoles titled “Star Wars: Bounty Hunter” which gave you a back story of how the bounty hunter went from being a lone wolf to a gun for hire for the empire.
THQ has just released a new live action short film trailer for their upcoming action sci-fi instalment in the franchise Metro: Last Light. ”Enter the Metro”, gives you a brief vision of the minutes just before we enter the Moscow Metro – a monumental feat of Soviet engineering designed and built to serve as a refuge in case of an atomic attack.
Black Ops 2 may look like another quick job from Activision and Treyarch studios but this time it looks like they are actually serious about making an excellent Call of Duty game since the first Modern Warfare, judging by the appearance of all the fresh information it seems that fans will have quite a lot to look forward to, with the return of zombies, more action than ever before, jet combat and even CHOICES (That’s right, CHOICES) are bound to make this the next Modern Warfare for the current year of Gaming, I had hopes for this game being great and if this information is indeed true then it can truly exceed that potential.
Metro: 2033 was a graphical marvel on the PC which bought even the most strongest of PC’s down to their knees where even people with i7 980 / 990X would be struggling to run the game at full and not even reach 60 FPS even with the most powerful GPU on the market at the time, but now the horror is making a comeback but not before it comes out as a Live Action movie to help fans get excited for the actual game release. Are you brave enough to Enter the Metro again?
Lost Planet is one of modern day gaming’s most popular games, with the first two games being graphical marvels on the PC requiring nothing less of a powerhouse to run them at the highest frames in DX11 it comes to no surprise that Lost Planet 3 will look even better than the previous 2 games and it will come with some new changes such as Quick Time Events. While the series has never quite reached the popularity of other mainstream titles fans of the series are surely in for quite a ride.
While PS4 and XBOX 720 are hush topics by their respected makers it seems that a legal document being exchanged between Bungie (famous for the Halo Series) and Activision (Famous for the Call of Duty Series) It seems that both studios were passing around a legal document showing interests in potential projects for both future consoles, while no proper names were in the documents we know that a couple of games will launch in 2013 / 2014 for the future consoles, but could these be launch titles for the consoles or follow up titles?
So apparently Sony has something big lined up for E3 and unfortunately it is not a next generation console nor is it going to be a new Vita since its too soon to release one. According to a french site which directly quoted PSM3 it seems that Sony could be hinting at a “big surprise” for all of it’s fans, but what the surprise is still a mystery. I am keeping my fingers crossed for something related to a new Uncharted or possibly a new Metal Gear Solid game but anything can happen.
