by phnk

First released in 2001, with a sequel in 2003, Max Payne was known for a few things: it’s use of noir, its use of bullet time and its overall story line and voice work. Despite being a successful series, and even receiving a Hollywood movie, Max Payne fans have been eagerly anticipating the third game in the series for quite some time. Rewarding their patience, Rockstar has unveiled Max Payne 3 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. The third entry in the series capitalizes on the three strengths the franchise is known for, while being a good entry point for newcomers; Max Payne 3’s story is able to stand on its own without knowledge of the previous two games.

MechWarrior Online (Video)

The MechWarrior franchise, appearing on both the PC and Xbox throughout the 90’s and early 2000’s, was, at its core, about pitting large piloted machines called mechs in battle against each other. The MechWarrior games were known for being complex; weapons would overheat, customizing your mech was of the utmost importance and nearly every key or button was used to control your robotic behemoth of death. Due to legal issues, the MechWarrior series fell into obscurity, until now: the upcoming MechWarrior Online is a free-to-play action game set to launch on the PC. MechWarrior Online combines all the aspects fans have come to expect from the series with one major change; now, every mech you’re fighting against is piloted by a human instead of an artificial intelligence.

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.

Far Cry 3

The Far Cry series has always been about two things: open-ended gameplay and a unique setting that seems to change every game. For example, Far Cry was set on a tropical paradise, while Far Cry 2 was set in the plains of Africa, and both games gave you multiple ways to dispatch your enemies. Far Cry 3, releasing for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, continues this trend. Even though the story is once again set on a tropical island, the island features many different locations; expect to be battling on sandy beaches and mountaintops in addition to the dense jungle atmosphere. The story follows Jason Brody, who has become trapped on the island, as a madman named Vaas, along with his crew, seek to end Jason’s life. Surviving the first attempt on his life by Vaas, Jason seeks revenge in this first-person shooter.

After Resident Evil 5, fans were unsure of what direction the next game could go in; Resident Evil 5 tied up many loose ends that existed since the first Resident Evil, providing finality to much of the series’ plot. While some fans expected a reboot of the series, Resident Evil 6 goes in the opposite direction by starting a new storyline with the same cast of characters. Series’ veterans Chris Redfield and Leon S. Kennedy return in what looks to be a new story arc for the Resident Evil series. When viruses start mutating the population in two different countries, it’s up to both characters to stop the virus and figure out who is spreading it. Fan favorite characters such as Sherry Birkin and Ashley Graham also return, giving all Resident Evil fans a reason to check Resident Evil 6 out when it releases on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm

When StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty was released in 2010, it featured the Terran race in its story mode. This was due to developer Blizzard’s plan of releasing three StarCraft II games, with each game focusing on one race, to tell a stronger, more cohesive tale. True to their word, StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm, releasing exclusively for the PC, does just that. In this game, the story focuses on the Zerg empire and Sarah Kerrigan, the previous queen of the Zerg, who is looking to retake her position as queen. Set after the events of Wings of Liberty, Heart of the Swarm is a direct sequel; to fully comprehend the story, it is recommended that Wings of Liberty is played first.

The Elder Scrolls series, developed by Bethesda, is a role-playing game series that has always emphasized freedom. You are free to travel wherever you want, do whatever you want and even kill anyone you want. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, coming soon for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, continues this trend in the series. Skyrim is set in the province of Skyrim, a cold, snowy place mostly inhabited by Nords: strong barbarians who live to fight. As Skyrim comes under attack by dragons, who have not been seen in centuries, it is up to you, the Dovahkiin, to stop this dragon invasion and bring peace back to the land of Skyrim.

Sonic Generations

by phnk

In the 80s and 90s, Sonic the Hedgehog, like much Mario, was a household name. Sonic has starred in over 20 games to date, ranging as far back as the Sega Genesis to current systems such as the Xbox 360. Sonic Generations, released for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, is a celebration of the many years of Sonic the Hedgehog games. Sonic Generations features the 2D styled Sonic the Hedgehog, star of the classic Sega Genesis series of Sonic games, meeting his 3D counterpart, star of the Dreamcast to current generation Sonic games, for the first time. What this means in terms of gameplay is that each level in the game can be played in two different ways: in classic 2D styled gameplay or modern 3D styled gameplay, effectively doubling the level count.

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier

The Ghost Recon series has seen many changes since its inception in 2001. Not only has the setting of each game changed, many times the era of time the game is based in has changed as well. The newest entry to the series, Ghost Recon Future Soldier, keeps the series’ tradition alive; the game is set in an urban environment while being set in the future. Not all things have changed, as the game is still a third person shooter with a heavy reliance on squad based mechanics. However, Ghost Recon Future Soldier, set to come out on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, even looks to slightly alter this mechanic as well.

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.
