We all know Rockstar are terrible for keeping us informed, after months of no news on the latest GTA we have some new screenshots of Los Santos. You can now even explode the big blue ocean using a special scuba suit allowing you to venture into the unknown, although it’s not promised you can explore the whole ocean in free play but more like it’s mission based.

though Rockstar hasn’t released any video footage I’m sure these screenshot of the sharp landscape, sky diving and a high speed chase.

Have you pre ordered GTA IV? or will you? what are your thoughts on Los Santos?

 

As we travel back in time to the start of Lara Croft and how she famously became Tomb Raider, with the first episode Square Enix showcase what they can only describe as the “backbone” of the game. Where you can increase Lara skill sets and upgrade equipment to help her master the mysterious island in the Dragon Triangle, Lara appears in a different light in this new reboot because she’s not the strong and very experienced tomb raider that we know.

 

The War Z

With the Walking Dead winning game of the year and not to mention the series along with the iconic and brilliant Comic Book, no wonder Zombies are in fashion. The War Z is a MMO where the player spawns with just flashlight, a granola bar, bandages and a can of (as the American’s call it) Soda, which add the need to survive in 400 square miles of lumps of towns and settlements along with natural wooded areas. War Z offers a real apocalypse with players having the ability to team up and help each other or go against each other creating a second enemy for yourself! which as I imagine people would react in a Zombie apocalypse, not trusting folk and what not!

No description, just watch!

 

South Park: Stick of Truth

 

 

Tomb Raider

 

 

Assassin’s Creed 3: King Washington DLC

 

Gears of War: Judgement

 

Bioshock Infinite

 

Castlevania 2: Lord of Shadows

 

Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics presents the action packed prequel Tomb Raider, watch as Lara fights for survival from crawling out of an underground “tomb” and hunting to stay alive!

 

the huge community behind Assassin’s Creed 3 is incredibly with all assassin’s playing the game a day early (from pre ordering) or on the release date! although it is very buggy which is sure to be fixed some time soon.

The story is no short of amazing! if you’ve played the game and I’m sure most of you will have up to about sequence 3 there’s a huge shocker that I did not see coming, the characters in the game and brilliant from the characters you play to the ones you interact with. they give off a very good 1700 feel to the game wearing the full works of the old style fashion. SPOLIER, I don’t know how Connor can run or even move with all his gear with the tomahawk, hidden blade, rope dart and all your hurting gear.

 

The scenery is just mind blowing, the scale of the environment is the biggest you’ll ever see for Assassin’s Creed 3 if you don’t have a horse make sure you whistle for one or you’ll be spending most of the game running throughout the wilderness, while passing through the wilderness don’t forget to scale some trees! this is the simplest idea I’ve seen that’s been added to AC3 but they have perfected the climbing of trees and made it fluent and sexy at the same time! Boston is beyond beautiful and gives the same feel of a city as Rome or Florence from the previous games, while still giving it a brand new feeling to the start of a new assassin. the climbing in the city is even better than when they improved it in Revelations and to be fair I thought it wouldn’t be much different.

to get a full synch mission on your first try might be hard on Revelations or Brotherhood but you haven’t played anything as hard as AC3 mission, some of them are incredibly hard but simple to solve. I’ve got this one mission stuck in my head where I’m sure it glitches so I get detected and fail the mission, it’s safe to say it took me a fair while to even finish the mission without full synch

although like AC2 and the two side projects, AC3 offers a different way to make your money the renovation is out of the window for AC3 brings a brilliant, refreshing Estate for you to “manage” and build and evolve into a community. You can save citizen throughout the wilderness and invite them into your estate to help with their chosen craft, you can then find recipes to build new things and create weapons and gain more money in the long run.

as much as I love the assassin’s creed series, number 3 is bar far the greatest! if you haven’t played any of the series number 3 is the one to start with.

 

 

EA have announced the reboot for SimCity will be with us in just under 5 months! originally meant for to be released February 2013 using the Glassbox Engine which gives the city a more realistic, alive simulated city!

 

SimCity will have a leader board type feature will allow to play with other mayors, players can compete across the globe for the rankings of the cleanest,dirtiest and the fittest cities online!
