With Dead Space 3 and Aliens: Colonial Marines out of the way, the next big game on the horizon (joining Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance) is Crysis 3. The last Crysis game was a little divisive; console gamers loved it – but the master race seems to have been left a little disappointed by what they felt was a dumbed-down console game. Crysis 3’s received its first review courtesy of Polish magazine CD-Action. What did they think?
The tale of the white-haired, freaky-eyed monster-hunter Geralt hits consoles - more specifically the Xbox 360 - for the first time, later this month. It’s the sequel to the first game - so many of you might be put off by jumping in to a story in the middle. I’m here to assure you, RPG fans that while it is nicer knowing the details that come before the second game, they’re mostly not necessary.
If, however, you do want to catch up so you can experience one of this generation’s finest RPGs - certainly one of my favourites from last year - you could spend the next few hours reading all the pertinent Wiki entries; or you could just watch this lovely little video that details everything about the story that you need to know. Of course, it’s a little spoilerish if you do plan on playing the first game before the Witcher 2: Enhanced edition graces Xboxes on April 17.
For the rest of you? Enjoy!
Hey, lookie here, it’s another contemporary warfare game wherein America saves the day! USA! USA! USA! Oh wait, this might not actually be the case in the upcoming Medal of Honour: Warfighter, as it looks players will get to flex their various special forces muscles from around the world this time, as several other international military groups are making their way into the game.
With Polandâ€™s â€œXbox Lieâ€ campaign making the media rounds at the moment, thereâ€™s been a fair spotlight on the fact that many countries â€“ our own included â€“ have been repeatedly denied The Xboxâ€™s 360â€™s online component, Xbox Live â€“ arguably the platformâ€™s strongest point. Since the consoleâ€™s local launch in 2006, weâ€™ve been told that itâ€™s coming â€“ and nearly 4 years later we still have nothing.
With renewed media attention on the lack of Xbox Live, we thought it would be a good time to speak to our local Microsoft representative and see if they had any new information for us.
In possibly the most bizarre marketing idea ever to hit the gaming industry, Polish, retailers have started bundling Holy Bibles with their 80GB PS3â€™s in order to add that extra bit of value.
Unfortunately since I have no idea if Bibles are expensive or not I canâ€™t say whether this is a good deal but if you were going to bundle a bible with a games console then wouldnâ€™t the 360 be the more likely candidate for needing a hope and a prayer?
Oh and yes I do find it ever so slightly ironic that it is also bundled with the Koran* singing LBP, now you can get your fill of both religion in one neatly bow tied box.
*yes I am aware the Koran was removed from LBP thanks.
