The Serious One is back in Serious Sam Double D XXL. The side-scrolling shooter will be coming to the Xbox LIVE Marketplace later this month. This gun-stacking, monster-blasting, run-and-gun, 2D adventure may look familiar, and it should. It's like last year's Serious Sam Double D on PC, only this time it's on the XBLA, there's co-op, three new letters in the title, and a whole lot more.
Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken is a fun little platformer that began as a Flash game, made it to the PlayStation Network, and will be coming to Steam later this year. The PSN and upcoming Steam versions offer both a single player and cooperative campaign. I decided to take it for a spin before the fall gaming rush eclipses all but the most overhyped titles.
Warren Spector is one of the most revered designers in the gaming industry today. With such titles as System Shock, Wing Commander and Deus Ex in his portfolio, it's difficult to imagine that a simple platformer like Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two could prove to be a challenge. To understand the challenge, you need to understand the basic concepts of the game. At its core, Epic Mickey 2 is about creation or destruction - do I paint the world to create, or use thinner to destroy things in my path.
A new trailer has surfaced for the upcoming third-person shooter, Starhawk. The game's space western vibe is in full effect as we're introduced to "blue gold," the rift energy that drives the fortunes of men like our protagonist, Emmett Graves. This game is really tickling my fun zone. The beta was a blast and the gameplay footage from this trailer looks amazing.
Last week we brought you copious amounts of videos from BattleBlock Theater, The Behemoth's follow up to the fantastic Castle Crashers. This week we have four more prisoner profiles. These dastardly villains have been convicted of heinous crimes including, but not limited to: "Necromancy," "Attempted planet wide takeover," "Too much sadness," "Plastybolsaphobia," and "Existence." Terrifying, I know.
Didn't some pessimistic jerk just claim that there's nothing coming out this week? Man, I'll have to talk to the boss about him. Anyway - Gear of War 3 DLC is coming out tomorrow, December 13th. It's titled "RAAM's Shadow" and it's a prequel to the trilogy we all know and love. You'll experience a new take on the Gears universe as you step into the heavy boots of the Locust General and unleash hell on the COG forces. That's right, this additional storyline will include a campaign from the Locust perspective. Not only that, the whole thing will support two player local co-op and four player online co-op.
Okay, I'll admit it. I've posted a lot of videos covering The House of the Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut, and to be honest with you, I haven't been that impressed by them. I've always enjoyed the House of the Dead franchise, and I loved the direction the series took in The House of the Dead: Overkill for the Wii. The previous videos for the PS3 exclusive Extended Cut version just don't pack the same punch. Take a look and see what I mean. Oh, and keep reading, because this is going to be awesome. Promise. There's gonna be boobs and stuff.
