Blacklist – Stealth Option

Posted: August 31, 2012 by davidsugden in gaming, Playstation 3, Xbox 360

Although this video isn’t new for you Splinter Cell fans, as we posted it when E3 was on earlier this year. But that demo was showing you the lethal side of things, leading to questions are they again spoiling the number one stealth series.. So the team behind Blacklist [Ubisoft] created this version of the demo, where stealth is all it takes to succeed. Welcome back Sam, we missed you.

For the ones missed the lethal/all out war, click HERE to see it.

 

L.A.Noire studio updated their website with information on their latest project ” Whore of the Orient” the game will be set in 1936 Shanghai and will make an appearance with the next gen console and PC

not much information has been release yet but we do know that it will be in the “most corrupt and decadent city on the planet” and will show the Chinese at the boiling point of nationalism.

The official trailer for the next Animus is here and to be honest it looks like it’s marketed by the folk who’s done Bing, don’t get me wrong it’s looking really good and adult from the past version and I’m looking forward to experiencing it for myself. From the trailer it seems like Abstergo will be an even bigger “household” name from the past games. I’m very excited to find out what the Templars have in store for Assassin’s Creed and with all the “history lessons” we’ll be having during the game play.

 

 

Is it just me or does the voice over sound a lot like Victor?

 

 

Being a huge fan of the Alien films, I’m very excited for Colonial Marines and with the news of this new game type for multiplayer it adds even more excitement for the release.

Escape is the object of the Marines and I’ll let you guess what the Aliens objective is? so they’re four Marines and four Aliens, each alien  with their own special ability’s including Xenomorphs Lurker which is the fastest Xenomorphs of the bunch, Xenomorphs Solider is the best for close-combat and can take more damage than the other Xenomorphs. The two other classes include a spitter which attacks Marines from a distance with its acid and the last one I’m guessing is an original Xenomorphs.

Gearbox and Sega has surely made a heart racing game that will play on your nerves and get your blood rushing!

Raphael is one of the best conceptual artists i’ve seen, hes worked for Ubisoft on Assasins Creed and Prince of Persia, and has worked on films such Terminator Salvation, Journey to the Center of the Earth, Death Race, and Repo Men. Click for more..

Red Dead Film

Posted: August 29, 2012 by davidsugden in gaming, Playstation 3, Xbox 360

I know RDR is relatively old (still loving it) but upon watching the history of Rockstar i discovered that John Hillcoat (The Road, The Proposition & NEW film Lawless) had directed a film for RDR and for all you spur clinking jockeys here it is.

If you’re still playing Skyrim and already completed Dawnsguard and aching for another DLC then you’re in luck with Hearthfire, Hearthfire will give players the ability to build their own homes. The players can purchase their own land and build their own home to play on the players personality. as well as building your own home you can adopt a children with your chosen spouse and raise that child although no rewards are none yet.

 

unfortunately Hearthfire doesn’t bring much for the combat of Skyrim it plays on the players creativity and urge for a mythical and magical family.

 

Hearthfire will be available September 4th on Xbox Live. keep locked for more details.

There here Halo 4 achievements have been announced and seem pretty do able, I think they have taken a leap out of Reach’s book. Reach’s achievement were do able but challenging at the same time.
