BioShock Infinite is not a direct sequel or prequel to previous BioShock games, taking place at a previous time and different setting, though features similar gameplay concepts from these games. The player controls a former Pinkerton agent, Booker DeWitt, as he attempts to rescue a woman trapped aboard the collapsing air-city Columbia in 1912. Like Rapture, Columbia is considered a failed utopia, but with signs present suggesting a theocratic government taking control at some point.
These are some of the screenshots available for the game so far. I am liking the change of setting and the bright out-door sun, it makes a stark contrast from the previous games. I am also interested in seeing more about the new direction they are going with this latest Bioshock game.
A few people noticed a couple of hours ago that on the website for the American Xbox Live Marketplace, Fable II was being offered for free. This wasnt offered in any other countries and not even on the Xbox 360 console marketplace. It was exclusive to the website. That was then and now its back to being $19.99 so Microsoft must have realised their mistake.
Namco Bandai Splatterhouse is looking tasty if you’re a meat-eater that is. It is a remake of the original Splatterhouse which was released in 1988. The game combines beat ’em up mechanics with survival horror.
The game is filled with blood, bones, limbs etc being put in positions they aren’t naturally suppose to be in. The game seems like a typically hack n slash but I am sure there’s more to it than that. The character design reminds me of Borderlands which means it has a distinctive look. I find it to be eye-catching.
Splatterhouse will be set loose around December time on PS3 and Xbox 360.
The 3rd Birthday is a PSP game by Square Enix. It was originally released for Japanese mobile phones. It is a sequel to Parasite Eve with Aya fighting a monster infestation in New York.
This game stands out from other PSP games because of its visuals which look great on the PSP. And it reminds me of the original games.
A unique feature in the game is the ability to see Aya’s clothes get ruined and see her skin get bloodied. This happens when she takes damage. At the moment I am not sure if this makes the game more or less realistic. Either way it makes the game different and visual interesting and you can see her bum in more detail, after all your going to be seeing her back a lot.
The sequel to Arkham Asylum, Batman: Arkham City should be out in Autumn 2011, and it already looks like its going to be another good Batman game and the graphics are looking greatly improved over the previous game, which was very good at the time. These are some screens from the game with a few comments for a bit of amusement.
A helicopter has crashed somewhere in the Shahikot mountains. These snow covered mountain peaks, called The Valley of the Kings in the local tongue, has been a rebel hiding place since ancient times. Python 1 is inserted to investigate and look for survivors in these eerie surroundings. As they embark from their helicopter they hear the first crackling sound of a sniper rifle roll between the steep mountain sides.
Not that long a go I made some achievements up for Dead Rising 2: Case Zero which I thought would add more gameplay to the arcade game and because the official Case Zero achievements were uninspiring like a lot of game achievements are. You can see my ones here. Anyway with the release of Dead Rising 2 and the achievements that go with it I am pretty disappointed to say the least. I havent bought the game yet but I looked at the achievement list and where’s the creativity?.
I have been playing Dead Rising 2: Case Zero lately and its a lot of fun. I never played the first game Dead Rising but after playing Case Zero I might consider getting Dead Rising 2. Anyway I been messing about and thought I make up some of my own achievements which I have made up while playing the game. If anyone wants to try them out it could add some fun and some replay value.
Famitsu have scored the latest Pokemon games Black and White, a perfect score of 40 out of 40.
Pokemon Black and White will be released in Japan later this month and everywhere else next year.
I like the Pokemon games but I havent played one fully since Red, Blue, Gold and Silver. Those where the days. Also I guessed years ago that they would name the game Black and White sometime in the future as a joke I even did pictures. Never thought they would do it. There going to run out of different opposites soon. The enhanced edition should be called Grey.
