Square Enix have announced their newest title – Murdered: Soul Suspect – in which you play a character who investigates his own murder. Uh-huh.
Come on down ‘n’ git yer fix of vidya game music!
It may seem like it was just yesterday that the worlds of Cloud Strife and Mickey Mouse collided to create Kingdom hearts, but Dream Drop Distance marks 10 years of the series’ lifespan. By this point in time most gamers understand what Kingdom Hearts is and have decided whether or not it is a series that is worthy of their library, and Dream Drop Distance understands that about itself. For a Kingdom Hearts game with Disney characters, vibrant colors and wonderful music, Dream Drop Distance is the worst game for someone new to the series to be introduced to. The storyline has reached a point where it’s hard to make sense even for a seasoned Kingdom Hearts player and it’s fairly weaker than the other entries in the series, the gameplay is a bit more frustrating than the other entries, the storyline is a bit off and the game might be better off without some of the new features.
The latest trailer, ‘Hard-boiled Gunplay’, to be released from Square Enix for their up and coming game Sleeping Dogs shows off the gunplay in the game from the cover system, Max Payne style slow motion, high speed shootouts and explosions. It’s looking visually impressive and lining up to be one of the surprise hits of this year, especially considering it’s an original and new IP coming from Square Enix and developers United Front Games.

By this point in time you have probably heard the mountains of fan boy hate about how Final Fantasy XIII is possibly the worst game in the entire series and how the franchise is going down the whole. While the last entry in the series wasn’t an awful game many of the statements given were correct about it, the number one statement being that it didn’t feel like a Final Fantasy Game. With Final Fantasy XIII the developers decided to change everything about the series to try and keep up with the current generation of games, only to realize that it wasn’t what the audience wanted from them. While a lot of games today have become very fast paced and combat oriented Final Fantasy is a series that needed to stay with a lot of the things that made it great.
It’s been a while since the last entry in the Hitman series, in fact the last game was released 6 years ago. Since then we have heard announcement over announcement about the next one only to end up with no results. Well soon you shall quench your assassin thirst as Absolution is supposed to be released this year. Not much is known about this game besides what we have seen from the trailer and these new screenshots but Agent 47 still looks pretty awesome. Check out the new screenshots and the trailer if you missed it the first time around after the break. Continue Reading

Yoshinori Kitase has revealed that the PS2 RPG Final Fantasy X is being remade into HD for PS3 and PS Vita. But if rumors are true it seems that it will not just be a simple graphics remake but the game will be remade with Final Fantasy XIII’s engine all together, all scenes, characters, environments will be redrawn and Blitz Ball will have network play added into it! Sounds like something any Final Fantasy fan could get into.
Eidos Montreal recently released their newest game Deus Ex: Human Revolution, the prequel to Deus Ex, which was released in 2000. To sum the game up in a few brief words, its Thief meets Dragon Age with a futuristic twist. DX:HR brings to light a new style of Action Roleplaying Games.
Set in the year 2027, DX:HR puts you behind the controls of Adam Jensen, an ex SWAT commander and the head of security for Sarif Industries. The game’s tutorial mission brings you right into the thick of the plot as Jensen is told to brief his security plans for the upcoming trip to Washington D.C. to unveil Dr. Reed’s newest development in the human augmentation industry. Of course, as anyone could predict, things don’t quite as expected and you soon find yourself learning to quickly maneuver through the office space, while trying in vain to save scientists from gunman. A few dead henchmen later, you find yourself being thrown through a thick plate glass high-tech monitor as you cling to consciousness, you watch them take Dr. Reed just before you take a bullet to the brain. Que the opening credits (which is an awesome little cut scene).
While this doesn’t really explain anything about the game, the opening mission/scene gives you a storyline that is just informative enough to make you wonder what the hell is going on. When you wake up, you are now an augmented human, complete with a retinal display. Continue Reading
