Twisted Metal Review: Metal, Blood, Bones and a sweet…. tooth

Upon its release in 1995, Twisted Metal became a household name for the PlayStation. Its unique cast of characters, interesting plot, car combat gameplay and amazing multiplayer helped cement it as one of the PlayStation’s best games in its first year. However, a string of subpar sequels caused the Twisted Metal brand to languish, even though it saw a brief resurrection with the critically acclaimed Twisted Metal: Black for PlayStation 2. Series creator David Jaffe returns to the series to revive it once again with the PlayStation 3 exclusive Twisted Metal.

Assassins Creed III

After three games set in Europe, all starring Ezio Auditore, the Assassin’s Creed formula had started to become stale. While Assassin’s Creed II breathed new life into the franchise, catapulting it into star franchise status, and Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood further further improved the gameplay, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations started to wane a bit. While Ezio was interesting and a great protagonist, gamers were eager for a change of pace and to experience a new protagonist, similar to when the franchise switched from Altair to Ezio in Assassin’s Creed to Assassin’s Creed II. Assassin’s Creed III, releasing on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, looks to be just what gamers wanted in this regard.

Diablo III

The Diablo series, which began in 1996, pioneered the action role-playing game genre. Presented in an isometric view, action was fast, frantic and addictive; click on enemies to attack them and use the loot, or dropped items, that are found to make your character stronger. Diablo III, releasing exclusively for the PC, doesn’t reinvent the series; fans can expect the same action role-playing gameplay they’ve come to expect but now with a few twists. The storyline from past games continues, as players are still in the land of Sanctuary, though two decades into the future. The game focuses on the last two Lesser Evils, Azmodan and Belial, though one can assume that, just like past games, Diablo himself will be making an appearance as well.

Skullgirls

These days, fighting game fans have a lot of games to choose from: Super Street Fighter IV, Street Fighter X Tekken and Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 just to name a few. But while the fighting game genre is seeing an explosion in terms of popularity and new games, many of these games are sequels and not new properties. One game, Skullgirls, looks to change that. Releasing as a digital download on the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network, Skullgirls is a completely new fighting game developed by Reverge Labs. Skullgirls is a 2D fighting game featuring eight female characters, all with their own unique moveset.

Uncharted 3 Review: Drake’s just deserts

As soon as the third entry from the stellar Naughty Dog team fires up, any questions or doubts you may have had about the experience they have crafted for you disappears. Much like the intros for the previous titles, you are dropped into a situation that is already unfolding and getting very tense. It is that design choice that has made the appeal so strong for the series. You don't feel as if you are seeing the start of a crafted story, but more like you are getting a third person view into drake's life. That is a magic, created by strong story telling methods, characters that can be related to, and the subtle chemistry that can be felt among the characters instead of having the nuances of the relationships forced upon the gamer.

Uncharted 3

Uncharted 3, released exclusively for the PlayStation 3, again follows the adventures of Nathan Drake, famous treasure hunter, as he once again seeks not just buried treasure, but a buried city: Iram of the Pillars. For this outing, Nathan is joined by his good friend and father figure Victor Sullivan, who has also appeared in every Uncharted game to date. Like Uncharted 2, you needn’t play past games in the series to enjoy Uncharted 3; while it would help to flesh out the characters, it isn’t required to fully enjoy this game. Uncharted 3 not only deals with present day adventuring, but also deals with Nathan Drake’s past in the form of flashbacks, as many questions about him are finally answered. Fans can expect to see Chloe and Elena return as well along with a few new faces.

Saints Row: The Third

When the first Saints Row game was released in 2006, it was little more than a Grand Theft Auto clone. However, with Saints Row 2, the series started drifting into over-the-top territory; large scale battles and outlandish scenarios helped separate it from the serious tone of Grand Theft Auto. With Saints Row: The Third, also known as Saints Row 3, the series completely eschews realism for over-the-top insanity. In Saints Row: The Third, soon available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, the Saints have moved to Steelport to avenge the loss of one of their fallen comrades. This revenge based-story sees the Saints, with you playing their leader, teleport into a virtual world, fight an army of angry clones, pilot tanks and attack planes throughout the city and many more surprises.
