For those of you who love killing zombies, are a fan of the horror genre, or remember the cheesy live action scenes of Resident Evil 1, be prepared! The trailer for Resident Evil Six has arrived and it is nothing less than epic. The question is what type of game will Resident Evil 6 be; a horror survival or a third person action game?
After some serious convincing from a couple of friends ( and more than a few youtube videos) who have yet to steer me wrong when it comes to games, I was, once again, talked into another game.
Minecraft, the limitless game in which, you mine… and you craft. The concept is simple and you are only limited by two factors, your imagination and your time. While Minecraft is probably one of the least graphically advanced games we have seen in awhile, it has taken the world by storm. Continue Reading
The Resident Evil franchise has been one that has held its fan base over the years. With the first Resident Evil game in 1996, Capcom became the pioneers of the survival-horror genre. Stellar graphics for the time, a very unqiue story line, combined with smooth gameplay helped build a game that pulled the player in, and Capcom didn’t stop there. With the success of Resident Evil, Capcom continued to build on the story that started as the foundation for this amazing game, Resident Evil 5 being the latest addition to the franchise. In December, Capcom will be adding yet another game to the survival-horror collection it has created, however, this game will be unlike any Resident Evil game we have seen in the past.
Resident Evil – Operation Raccoon City takes us back to 1998, a time between Resident Evil 2 and 3. Instead of rehashing the story from the already known perspective, Capcom and Slant Six Games have decided to retell the story from the Umbrella Security Services point of view. Yes, that’s right, in Operation Raccoon City you are thrown straight into the mix as one of Umbrella Cooperation’s very own.
Trion Worlds released their widely popular MMO-RPG earlier this year. On its release many players in the gaming community said that this would be the “WoW-Killer”, and in part, they were correct. While World of Warcraft will always hold Blizzard‘s fanbase close to it, the game itself leaves much to be desired for those who came from other MMO-RPGs such as EverQuest. Where World of Warcraft is lacking in these aspects, however, RIFT takes up the slack.
RIFT uses an interface that is extremely similiar to WoW’s and nearly all other MMOs, but, hey, if it’s not broken, don’t fix it, right? RIFT however takes leaps and bounds over World of Warcraft and similar MMOs with its graphics. While the characters have a certain Dragon-Age feel to them, they are highly customizable. And let’s not forget the details and graphics present in this game. Visually, RIFT makes up for everything that WoW lacks. RIFT uses a more realistic color scheme instead of the bright and vibrant, almost cartoony, color scheme that is present in World of Warcraft, which is much easier on the eyes. Continue Reading
This year’s Gadget Show Live Gaming Zone was in a whole other hall to accommodate for the extra space, as well as the food hall, but there was still plenty to see.
The part the GTN crew found most interesting was the 18+ zone, which was hidden away in a big white tent, and was also where the Duke was hiding. Inside the mysterious tent, you could not only actually get to play a small piece of Duke Nukem Forever, but you were also able to get free exclusive T-shirts and badges.
As a game, it was quite fun, but wasn’t really enough to come up with a verdict and there wasn’t really anything that you won’t have already seen on YouTube, but it was still something to play the game if just to know for sure that it’s real – and trust me, it IS real.
