I’ve never played an MMORPG to for an extended period of time nor have I ever been able to talk about what an expansion pack truly offers but this the Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward Dungeon Crawl trailer does show off a lot. There are several new areas and some enemies that all look fairly impressive for an MMO. MMO expansions always bring people back into the game and sometimes get some people into them.
Almost everything you need to know about Xenoblade Chronicles X is all contained in this video, probably. This game looks incredible and has such a massive scope that I can hardly believe it. This game is definitely on top of my most anticipated games of the year list.
We’re soon approaching the end of the Arkham series with all of Batman’s rogue gallery arming themselves to finally bring down the bat. Batman has been in these situations before but with the Arkham Knight looming over the city will Batman win the night?
Shinji Mikami, creator of the Resident Evil series decided to spread his horror wing to more games. He’s worked on other horror games other than Resident Evil before but none as visually disturbing as The Evil Within. Channeling the feel of Resident Evil 4, The Evil Within aims to be a scarier and more serious kind of horror experience. Does Shinji Mikami and Tango Gameworks have what it takes to make a truly terrifying experience?
FanExpo Canada is happening this weekend in Toronto. I didn’t look at too many game related things on Friday due to shopping for comic books and art work. I was walking around the game section scouting the booth’s and I then I saw that there was a playable demo for The Evil Within. When I stepped in the line I was the third one in and this was in the afternoon too.
For the uninformed, The Evil Within is a new survival horror game IP by Shinji Mikami, the creator of Resident Evil. Personally I don’t know much about the game or its premise so I’ll go through what I played in the demo.
Resident Evil is back again more ambitious than ever. There are more characters and intersecting stories lines as well as brining names and faces from the past. Does one of our oldest zombie killing games deliver or should this have stayed dead.
Early this week the Resident Evil 6 demo was released on the Playstation Network and Xbox Live Arcade. It’s very uncharacteristic of Capcom to release demos but take it as gift to try out their next big title. Have they changed up the formula or will we see another clone of Resident Evil 4.
Leon and Chris return in the next chapter in the Resident Evil series. I’ve got to say it’s looking incredible. This looks like a massive step up from Resident Evil 4 and 5. The story seems to be broken up into three with Leon, Chris and a new unnamed mercenary character in the starring roles. Zombies finally make a return in the series and they are more versatile than ever. There are also new game mechanics that could possibly over complicate the controls but also give characters more control and freedom than ever.
Resident Evil 6 is set to be released November 20 2011.
