God of War III

Even if it doesn’t seem to have changed that much as for controls, gameplay and everything, the following video feed coming from the E3 at the beginning of June shows at least two things. Namely that God of War III should be the zenith of graphics on the PS3 exactly like the previous titles were so on PS2, and that disembowelling deities and mythologic beasts is an activity as much brutal as recurring within the game. To discover if it’s funny too we’ll have to wait at least till March 2010.

Left 4 Dead 2

When, during E3, Valve announced that the company was working on the sequel to Left 4 Dead, players replied by criticizing the publisher’s choice to release a new game after so much short time from the original. According to statements from the Left 4 Dead 2 Boycott Group, which collected more than 40,000 signatures until now, new contents included in Left 4 Dead 2 aren’t worth of a stand alone title and they should rather be distributed to players as additional packs for the first game. However Valve replied that the changing meteorologic conditions, the new survivors, the melee weapons (chainsaws, axes and more), the new infects and the dismemberable zombies are worth more than some DLCs, be they free or not. So L4D 2 will be out in November on PC and Xbox 360, with no regard for such players not wanting it.

Muramasa: The Demon Blade

Western publishers of Muramasa: The Demon Blade announced that Vanillaware’s action RPG will be out in Europe and in the States ahead of the period expected at first. So on September (USA) or November (Europe) there will be a version of the game compatible with my linguistic knowledge, now the only thing to decide is what to buy, among a Wii or a camera, at the next payment from PI :-P

Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles

The Capcom shooter for Wii (to be released within the next winter) will revisit both sets from Resident Evil 2 and from RE: Code Veronica for Dreamcast. And it’s just to this chapter of the fruitful Resident Evil saga that the following Darkside Chronicles images and video belong. Still talking about Resident Evil, in the end, the remake of the first game for Nintendo’s console appears impressive to say the least.

Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny

After the last month’s images torrent about the new beat’em up from the Soul series (that on August will come to the Sony PSP) maybe I should have addressed other things, nevertheless I couldn’t help but post this video clip: within the massive characters roster available to the player Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny also includes Kratos, the violent and untamable god of war featured in the homonymous series for Sony PlayStation. It was just this I was referring to when I talked about “really special guest stars” :-D

Tales of Monkey Island

The first chapter of Tales of Monkey Island, the new episodic series featuring Guybrush Threepwimp announced some weeks ago, was already released at the beginning of July. Who still had to purchase the game could form a brief opinion on the gameplay by seeing this video, kindly offered by developer Telltale.

Wolfenstein

Wolfenstein’s publishing date is coming, and waiting to see what Raven and id Software arranged for the new-gen incarnation of the everlasting B.J. Blazkowicz one can read about system requirements for the PC version or view the June related contents full of parallel realities, invisible assassins and places of pain and death. Let the Nazis feast finally begin…
