The very first Homefront had a lot going for it. A new take on traditional war shooters had Americans fighting out Korean occupation on their own shores, and while the actual game was contrived the narrative was a highpoint. The series has been toying around with a sequel for years now, which incidentally got caught up in not one, but two financial meltdowns. But it’s not gone just yet.
Aah Naruto games, truly you are the Call of Duty of annual fighting genre releases. Well clap your hands together and raise your fingers in weird poses, because you can bet your ass that little to nothing will have changed in the next release, but at least it’ll look pretty-no-jutsu.
You can be certain of three things in life. Death, taxes and the final fight in the Naruto manga dragging out over several years now. Yes, it’s still going on. That could also be due to the fact that the battle has pretty much every single character available taking part in it, stretching that battle the same way your mom stretches out a bathing costume. And the next Naruto game will be adding some Kage-level fighters to the mix as well.
If there’s one thing that I want in a new Naruto game, it’s not original gameplay, new fighting mechanics or even snazzier visuals. It’s a shorter title. But it looks like I’m not getting that when Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution arrives next year. What I am getting however, are a ton of screenshots.
Much like the movie Highlander, Call of Duty Black Ops 2 is the best thing ever, when it comes to video games. Naysayers be damned, as Treyarch managed to knock out a damn fine game in the annual franchise that was fun, exciting and slick in the presentation department. As usual, the COD experience is one that has a leaning towards multiplayer and zombies once the end credits roll. And much like with previous games, there’s extra content on the way to keep players satisfied until the next game in the series arrives. Revolution, is the first of four such packs.
So this was a bit drawn out wasn’t it? First we were told that this announcement was going to happen on Monday, that didn’t happen. Then it was definitely yesterday but we waited all day and nothing happened and then at 10pm last night this video was released.
Dance! Get down tonight! Boogie! If that’s you, and you want to win yourself a pair of branded Step Up Revolution earphones, then head on over to our Movies site, and enter. We’ve got ten to give away, courtesy of the folks at Nu Metro, who know how to pull off a hoedown-themed flash mob when needed. For everyone else, the film opens today, August 17,nationwide, and makes full use of that extra 3D dimension for the choreography. Time to boogie!
Earlier, we posted some unsubstantiated info on everyone's favourite Sports Entertainment organisation, the WWE and their new annual game, WWE Revolution. And it seems that those rumours were pretty much spot on.
But we’ve got even more info now, straight from the top rope source.
I've not regularly been overcome with the desire to sever my wrists, but this new Deus-ex trailer makes me want to do just that. It's not because I have bee stricken with some sort of sociopathic mental disease, thatâ€™s entirely unrelated Iâ€™m sure - but rather because Iâ€™d love mecha-jazz hands that would allow me to do stuff without having learnt anything.
The next official Red Dead Redemption video has arrived and this time we get to see what all the commotion is about in the world of RDR.
The video follows the story of the revolution and gives you some insight into the social environment of the times, itâ€™s well worth a look if you are planning on getting the game. Which of course you are right?
In related news the first review score for Red Dead Redemption was leaked last week with GameInformer giving it an incredible 9.75/10.
Fable 3 - like everything Peter Molyneux creates - promises to be revolutionary. Whether it manages to actually live up to that hype â€“ unlike everything Peter Molyneux creates â€“ remains to be seen.
Regardless of the fact that Molyneux seems to live in the clouds is that he is indeed responsible for some mighty fine gaming experiences including, but not limited to, the likes of Populous, Syndicate, Theme Park, Black & White and the aforementioned fable series. What then are the games from the last two decades that Molyneux considers to be most revolutionary?
Hit the jump to find out.
Last week we alerted you to the coup d'Ã©tat over at Lionheadâ€™s official site, where Che Guevara had overthrown the place, probably a teaser about something happening at GamesCom. Since then, the siteâ€™s been updated daily replacing each revolutionary figure and his controversial quote with another. The accompanying surreptitious number is counting down, lending credence to something being revealed at GamesCom.
Seems like Peter Molyneux is promising to revolutionise video gaming. Again.
