Quick news!

army-of-two-the-40th-day

Army of Two: 40th day had been announced a while back. An unexpected, and to some an unwanted, sequel to the original game. The good folks down at E.A were kind enough to write out an info sheet for the game talking about some of the things to expect and here’s what it said

Army of Two: The 40th Day features a bigger playbook of new co-op moves that either player can use at any time, opening up new strategies and countless choices for both players. The result is a bigger, better, more organic and immersive co-op experience that lets gamers put their best two-man tactics to use whenever and wherever they want.”

A pretty impressive promise from E.A. and something they’re backing up with an impressive, in game footage, trailer of the game.

Sad news was announced by Eidos interactive as they confirmed the rumors that Batman Arkham Asylum has been delayed. Although they never announced a definite date of release they had said the game was slated for release in the summer of 2009. Eidos have now announced however that the game isn’t set for release until the end of summer 09. Thanks again to xboxmattyb89 for tipping me off about this unfortunate piece of news.

The people involved in the games production said this time was going to be used to best improve the game so that it’s “at the highest quality for gamers.” As one of the fan boys anxious to get my hands on this game I sure hope this is true and they’re not stalling because the games looking sketchy.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is one of the most anticipated games to be announced, after the roaring success of the first game, selling over 12 million copies to date and winning multiple awards, this is one title everyone is happy to have announced. Infinity ward were even so kind as to announce a solid release date which I’m sure you all noticed at the top of this news bit.

I haven’t gotten concrete info on this baby yet and considering how far the release is I think any information at this time would be susceptible to change anyway, so I’ll wait until I get the correct details. Until then indulge yourselves with this interesting all be it uninformative teaser that’s driving gamers everywhere crazy.

One of the best looking games to be announced by Ubisoft, think I am legend but with no monsters and that’s what you have here. Unfortunately little else has been said about the game after the initial release information and interest. All Ubisoft have mentioned is that the game is a post apocalyptic game featuring a hero called Adam. The other aspects of the game such as story line, game play and features haven’t been confirmed, Ubisoft appear to be keeping their hand close to their chest on this one. The website is live but it doesn’t offer any more information other than a graphic wallpaper and trailer. The game was announced at last years E3 but nothing more has been said about it and with this years E3 quickly coming in it makes one wonder exactly what Ubisoft is doing about this game.

The trailer itself does open up some questions and gives an idea into what the game is about. The trailer starts by our hero, Adam, attempting to escape pursuers just to protect a bottle of water. amazingly enough the trailer shows the world in a wreckage and says it all appears to have happened in just 6 DAYS! That alone should wet your appetites at least your curiosity, find out for yourself check out the trailer below it’s looking good.

Christmas is going to be a merry one this year, as well as multiple other games being announced around this time the new splinter cell is announced. The fifth installment of the franchise seems to tie in close with the rest of the games.

This game sees you running from the government you once served in an attempt to get to the truth of who wants you dead. In order to survive you’ll need the usual stealth practices of the other games and the ability to build an underground base of allies.1179936598

These allies will help you get your hands on the cool gadgets everyone has come to love about the splinter cell games. As well as stealthy sneaking around the game includes what at first glances appears to be a pretty cool hand to hand combat system.

Saboteur!

256px-Official_Saboteur_Game_Cover_Art

One of the new games to be released it’s already picking up momentum and has been labeled by some as the cooler older brother of assassins creed. Unlike most WWII games this isn’t you in the life of a soldier fighting for your side against the allies or the Nazis. The game has a different point of view in more ways than one the major factor being the stealth aspect of the game as opposed to the run and shoot WWII life of a soldier.

As many of you will have come to realize from the name Saboteur the game isn’t about your average soldier in fact you’re not a soldier at all, you’re just a guy swept into the world war against your will. A classic reluctant hero, pandemic have continued this unusual game premise with the day to day goings on as you make your way around this Nazi filled world. It’s pretty heavy going, mood wise, to show the other side of the war other than what you would see playing call of duty world at war or any of the medal of honor series. It sometimes features acts of random violence by Nazi’s on civilians  and can be hard going from that point of you, but you get your chance to reek vengeance.

As well as having the feel and look of the game different from that of the others this game is also a new stealth game. Technically it’s a “re-envisioned” version of a much older game. However it’s looking so sleek and well made this time around were not afraid to label it new. One of the interesting features of the game is the black and white to colour ideas of the game. Giving it a visually interesting look that heightens the feeling of depression or seriousness of the game. Pandemic have really gone all out to make this game stand out from other WWII games.

Don’t this game is just all fancy graphics though it has a pretty solid storyline and unlike some stealth based games there can be a fair amount of violence, action and explosions. Saboteur doesn’t necessarily end if you get caught it just means you need to work a lot harder to get back to your invisible status. So in some ways it mirrors the game play of assassins creed, but also the style of hitman in that each level can be approached from a stealth or action idea. This is a major bonus for many reasons as the game then appeals to a wider market of gamers and can also be played time and time again by completing the levels in different ways each time.

All in all the game looks set to be both visually stunning and exciting in game play, all everyone can do now is hope that the mix of hitman, assassins creed and GTA can help make this WWII open world game a hit. If not it’s still set to be a fun game either way and well worth keeping an eye on.
