E3 2010 Game Trailers (Video)
E3 Expo: June 15 - 17th 2010
With the E3 2010 Expo just around the corner, here's just a fraction of the many games that are getting myself and the rest of the NLG staff excited for the gaming of the near future!
Bionic Commando: Rearmed 2
As a huge fan of the original NES Bionic Commando, and the amazing recreation through the original "Rearmed", I squealed with almost girlish delight when I heard a sequel was in the works. More moves, items, and dear God - jumping!
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
The series has never had much luck in the 3D environment realm of gaming, but this game looks more than promising of doing justice to the franchise in this style of gameplay. Ala 'Devil May Cry', if the control schemes are as friendly as the sidescroller versions, this will be a truly exciting gaming experience! Add to that the fact that I had multiple nerdgasms when I heard Patrick Stewart, Robert Carlyle and Jason Isaacs teamed with an epic and powerful score. I'm sold.
Dead Space 2
The first installment really brought deep horror back to the consoles, something that was never as vivid since the original Resident Evil/Silent Hill days. Now a sequel is on it's way, with lots of expectations to look up to I'm sure they've got all sorts of horrible surprises in store for us.
I'll give any brainchild of the creators of Wolfenstein 3D and Doom a chance; Rage shall be no exception. The shots look stunning enough, and the game should make for an outrageous amount of eye candy... now it's just the waiting game to see if it'll have the game mechanics to match.
Dead Rising 2
Zombie mayhem, limitless weapons, ridiculous violence. Multiply all that by 10, add some shiny new graphics and you get the sequel! It's a formula that's pretty hard to mess up, so fun is pretty much a guarantee with this bad boy.
Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds
I think it's pretty much safe to say that Marvel vs Capcom 2 has a massive following (yup, me and my Dreamcast included). The announcement of a third installment is eye-popping news to all the fans. The main question here is, will the character roster be able to live up to the previous one's? Or will it surpass it? I'm giddy just thinking about it.
Alright, so the first game wasn't too widely received. An otherwise fun romp through a horror movie that was hindered by a frequently clunky combat system. A sequel though? Well the developers were listening, and they have promised a fully immerse experience with a redesigned combat system. As a fan of horror movies and horror games, a joining like this is something that I definitely look forward to!
It's cute and violent. It's like the warm friendly fuzziness of Team Fortress 2 has been combined (I'm sure in a rather horrid fashion) with Manhunt and Postal. I already love it.
Stay tuned as we'll be delivering more news from E3 2010!
