I have the need to Sabotage!

May 30, 2009

There hasn’t been much revealed about The Saboteur, it certainly hasn’t gathered much hype in the gaming media but I personally think this is one to watch out for. Set during World War II (no don’t stop reading), you are given the task of taken down German officers/officials and in general just sabotage their plans for world domination. The unique thing about the game though is the use of colour or the lack of it in some ways. The majority of the areas you will play in will be covered in black and white representing the rule of the Germans and it is your task to bring colour back to the environment. Actually I don’t think anyone could do the game justice just talking about, here have a look for yourself.

The Saboteur is due out at the end Autumn/Christmas 2009 for the Xbox 360 and PS3.


The return of the Shepard

May 30, 2009

Bioware have released a couple of trailers already for the upcoming Mass Effect 2 and one of them hinted that the protagnist, Commander Shepard, could be dead. Well fear not Shepard fans he (or she, totally up to you) is back. Here have a look for yourself in this brand spanking new trailer.

If I don’t say so myself that trailer looks fantastic and it is good to that Commander Shepard will be back as it keeps up the continuity of the games universe. I loved the whole epic sci-fi feel of the original and judging by trailer this will provide us with more of the same. Oh and before I forget folks don’t delete your original Mass Effect save as we are told by Bioware it will actually effect certain events/situtations in the sequel!

Mass Effect 2 is on schedule for a late 2009 release

EA go big at E3

May 28, 2009

EA have announced a list of their games that will be shown at E3 next week and boy is it one big list. The list includes 26 games which include the likes of Brutal Legend, Army of Two: 40th Day, Dante’s Inferno, Mass Effect 2, The Saboteur and, surprisingly, FIFA 10. Football (or soccer) games are not usually shown at E3 as the event is staged in America so the interest in them is not too high but it seems like EA are going to break the mould and I certainly look forward to it.
