I never got on the zombie bandwagon for L4D 2, but I had some good times with the first one and was saddened that it moved to number 2 so quickly. Looks like our friends and family starving for games on the Mac will get a crack at the first one as well as a new full campaign for both versions of the game for free. SOLD.
Some good video action on Brink. I’m just shocked by the cartoony realism of the character models. They are gorgosity made flesh. All of the recent posts point to one sharp realization that probably cannot be realized by the time these games are out– I need a new computer.
Mount and Blade: Warbands released today, continues onward from humble beginnings into a major release that hopefully has the Elder Scrolls/Dragon Age/Gothic/Fable creators a little nervous as this tiny indy developer has shown HOW TO PROPERLY DO THIRD PERSON WEAPON COMBAT. Need we say more? Demo to level 7 but you know deep in your heart that you need the full version.
This is what it’s all about people:
Despite the rather long acronym for the game(BFBC2), the first blush of both the single and multiplayer have proven to be absolutely over the top. Particle effects, sound and lighting are all nothing short of amazing and in multi: the destructible environments fundamentally change the way the maps are played. Sadly, I’m getting a lot of lag in multiplayer, but that will lessen as I find closer servers to play on.
The single player reminds me quite a bit of Far Cry– one section harkens back to my favorite level: River, but with sound and lighting that put Far Cry to shame.
If you haven’t picked this up, even if you have no interest in the multiplayer game, it’s time!
…and failed to connect. I say that’s some good marketing at work.
From Gametrailers. Looking all sorts of awful good.
Huffing the Console FPS choad, DICE failed to bring BF Bad Company 1 out for the PC. While it may have been to keep sales of the extremely popular Battlefield 2 and, while less popular, the much improved Battlefield 2142 high, it was still a disappointment for fans of the series. However, BF Bad Company 2 is looking bad to the ass in many ways. In a confusing move, the beta for the game is out on the PS3 and not the PC so there is some choad huffing still going on. However, there are some impressive vids to whet the whistle.
