Just look at that. Ridiculous, yes. But also cool. Crysis 3 is due out later this year, and we have a first glimpse at the gameplay in this new trailer. It looks as though Crytek have decided to combine the best bits about Crysis 1 and 2 to make this threequel – we’re promised open world gameplay set within a bio-dome hub of New York city, now overrun with jungles and aliens. Click below to check it out.
If you take the art director of Half Life 2, mixed him with one of the game designers from Deus Ex, and slapped them into the team who made Dark Messiah of Might and Magic, you apparently end up with the wonderful looking steampunkish game Dishonored. Its looking very good, and is quietly creeping up my anticipation-o-meter the more I see it.
Enigmatic game designer David Cage has revealed what his studio is working on next, and it looks rather good. The developer of Heavy Rain and Fahrenheit did something similar a few years ago, releasing The Casting, which was a short tech-demo piece showing off the kind of experience you could expect from their first outing on the PS3. We can only assume the same applies here – Kara is not a game trailer, but a showcase of what advancements they have made and gives a feel of the new game they are working on. It involves robots!
7 years I’ve waited for this! Alan Wake was first announced way back in 2005, back when Remedy had only just finished Max Payne 2, but after 5 years in development and the horribly justified cancellation of the PC version, it came out as an Xbox 360 exclusive back in 2010. Now, 2 years later, we can finally experience it at its best.
I am currently on a mad rush to play through Mass Effect 1 and 2 again in time for the launch of 3 next month. Thanks to a foolish reformat of the wrong hard drive last year, I have no savefile to import into the game. And I MUST continue the story with MY Shepard. I couldn’t bear it any other way. Meanwhile, there’s a new frankly excellent cinematic trailer out for the absurdly anticipated 3rd installment. Click below to see it.
Every year, Americans host a ‘big game’. Something about football, only played with hands, not feet? I don’t know, sport is something that my brain doesn’t understand any more. Still, the best bit seems to be when the two sides have a rest and watch 40 minutes of movie trailers. That actually sounds pretty good to me.
… and we’re going to be able to fly harrier jump jets again! This excites me. This excites me a lot. See, I like flying helicopters, and I like flying jets, and in my mind a harrier is the best of both, and that means it should be helluva fun. If at least only because of the nostalgia I’m going to have when shooting the shit out of that big crane while a little guy tries running along it to avoid the hail of bullets from my minigun. Suffice to say, I can’t wait!
Gunpoint is an indie game being developed by PC games journalist Tom Francis. If you read PC Gamer like me, you’ll probably know him for his writing more so than his game development skills. Nonetheless, he seems to be doing a pretty good job of creating his first game. In it, you play a spy who has to break into office blocks, hack computers and take out guards before making a daring escape, quite often by leaping out of a third story window. But that’s not even the best bit. You get a gadget called the Crosslink, which basically lets you rewire any electrical device to almost any other in the building, allowing for some very creative puzzle solving…
It’s once again time to get some fantastic games for almost no money. The latest Humble Bundle is out, and it contains all of Introversion’s back catalogue. So, if you don’t already own Uplink, Darwinia, Defcon, or Multiwinia, and would be willing to part with a single quid (or indeed, less), check it out. The company has been struggling to survive for the last few years, so I truly hope this makes them a crapton of money so they can continue making Subversion, which they had to abandon recently. Amusing trailer is below.
And it has a new trailer. It’s very nice, and rather subdued, especially compared to most game trailers we are treated to, choosing to simply show off some of the locations and NPC’s we’re all likely to explore and meet once Friday hits. Yep, just 3 days to go. Man, I intend to get so utterly lost in this…
