This time last year, we’d just seen the releases of high profile titles such as BioShock 2, Dante’s Inferno, Heavy Rain and the North American and European releases of White Knight Chronicles and Star Ocean: The Last Hope International. In 2011, February was just as busy as last year, if not more so, with a huge number of games both released and announced.
PixelJunk Monsters 2 rules the update this week but what the avatars lack in content they make up for in sheer numbers.
Not to be outdone by the swarm of avatars is a healthy batch of add-on content. The Call of Duty: Black Ops map pack is sure to be the top download of the week but do not look past Dead Space 2 – Severed and the Dragon Age 2 downloads.
All told it looks like a good week. Take a look and download away.
Once in a while a game is made that bucks the notion of a proper genre. Catherine definitely lives in the murky realm of the indescribable.
Really this game has to be seen to understand so have a look for yourself and appreciate the loss for words (expletives notwithstanding).
EA has released the first in a series of Battlefield 3 gameplay videos that follow Staff Sgt. Blackburn and his team of U.S. Marines into the bad part of town.
Titled Fault Line, we finally get a real good look at the gameplay rather than the quick glimpses we saw in the teaser trailer. War is never a pretty sight, and it appears these new videos will capture that essence.
Coming directly out of GDC is news that the forthcoming inFamous 2 will feature user-generated content.
A trailer has been released giving a brief overview of developer Sucker Punch’s newest addition. Check it out.
While we wait for the folks at SOE to count all of your votes for the Gamer’ Choice Awards (let’s hope they’re not based in Florida) there’s a fresh batch of content ready to be downloaded.
This week’s offering begins and ends with the release of Pixel Junk Shooter 2. The physics based rescue story has been refreshed to include an online battle mode that promises to improve the already addictive gameplay.
Other highlights include a full game download of ModNation Racers and a handful of demos. Get in and get downloading.
Quick question: invisibility or flight? Take some time to mull it over.
Hopefully you chose invisibility (let’s be smart about this jet packs already exist) because by the look of this trailer you’ll be able to achieve just that in Crysis 2.
Zoo Entertainment has announced plans to release Fireburst, an action-packed racing game, this summer for digital download.
Using the Unreal Engine 3, the game will utilize a new Fireboost system where vehicles can trigger one of four fiery abilities such as Fireball, Firewheels, Firewall and Fireblast. Will you be able to handle the heat?
When it comes to the fighting genre, Capcom reigns supreme. It’s difficult to find a tournament anywhere that doesn’t feature the likes of Street Fighter or Marvel vs. Capcom 2. It has been close to a decade since the release of the latter, and fighting fans have been calling for a sequel all this time. But now, finally, fan are getting what they want with the release of Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds.
The question is: can Fate of Two Worlds live up to the hype, or are Marvel and Capcom two series that simply can’t play nice?
