    New game releases

    Post by Adrastos on Fri Feb 04, 2011 11:01 am

    Shogun 2: Total War is out on the 15th March. I do believe that the forum gets adverts for it.

    Spoiler:

    I'm not trying to advertise or anything but I strongly recommend that you take a good look.

    Lookin' forward to Disgaea 4.

    Apparently, you can coerce your enemies with such tactics as smacking them across the face with a roll of banknotes - Or you can do nice things like sitting them down to talk about their problems.

    And of course, there's the b!tchin' awesome combat gameplay, which is nigh but guaranteed with Nippon Ichi's games.

    Just what I was about to say ^^

    I am also looking forward to the next Star wars: Battlefront though.
    Rumours say its coming out in 2013.

    In my eyes, the Star Wars Battlefront series died after the second release. The batman games' promotional videos, in general, don't do the games any justice.

    You are lying if you say you do not want another battlefront, I personally think it would be cool as a trilogy.

    Oh, another thing I can't wait to get: Blazblue continuum shift.
    The first game was awesome in my opinion, bought it ages ago and still enjoying it.

    ANOTHER THING I can't wait for is The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim.
    Yeah, I said it.

    Minecraft, I am trying to get as I speak/write. I admit that I want another Battlefront but only so they can redeem themselves. Battlefront 2 was a failure, the PSP games aren't that bad though.

    In fact, if they make another battlefront like the first I will play it. Light-hearted shooter games are hard to come by.

    Well I think Battlefront 2 was better than the first one. Most people just don't like it because they don't know how to play the Space levels.

    The space levels are a good idea, in some of the PSP games you switch between space and land combat in the same battle. The jedi are the main part that I don't like. Because of it you can't have a good online battle.

    Even with a third game, I doubt that they'll get rid of that feature.

    Exactly one month until Shogun 2 comes out. It's not from an amazingly popular genre but I urge you all to get it, or at least an older Total War game.

    So, they announced a 'Hero' Edition of Infamous 2
    Includes Cole McGrath's Sling pack
    I'm getting it, period
    Also comes with a mini comic, a voucher for ALL Pre-order bonuses(meaning it doesn't matter WHERE you buy it), a Mini Cole Statue, And the Game Sound Track.
    What you guys think?

    Never played God of War before.

    From what people have been telling me, its like Marmite.
    So, I'm guessing there are no Elder scrolls fans here?

    Guessed not.

    Never played Marmite, but I've been told that Dante's Inferno is a pretty crappy knock off
    And, no, not a fan of Elder Scrolls, or the entire MMORPG Genre, really

    Alright, I am definitely considering the Hero edition. And Shogun 2 looks pretty cool.

    Other games I'm considering....I'll post about soon enough.

    Well, I sold my wii to get a ps3, and more importantly, sold Okami.

    I want that freaking game back.

    Good thing there's a ps2 version.

    Shogun 2 is nearly out now and I admit that I'm really excited. I've downloaded and played the demo. Despite the demo graphics being dodgey the game was amazing.

    Play the demo before it comes out and pre-order it.

    Tip: If you get the demo and play the historical battle 'battle of Sekigahara' DON'T TRUST YOUR ALLIES and be cautious of your right flank.

    Adrastos has been lazy and has not told this topic yet, so I might as well do it.

    Shogun came out a week early, and Adrastos pre-ordered it just in time, a day before it came out.

    He is having quite alot of trouble with the game it seems, as he put it on hard mode immediately. Apparently the infantry units don't work like they did in other total war games.

    Yep, I'm reviving this thread.

    Apparently the Transformers: Fall of Cybertron demo came out recently, and the full version will come out sometime in the next few months.

    I am very happy about this, but I'm simultaneously rather worried because the PC version is almost certainly gonna be rushed.

    However, the Combaticons are in it, so that should make up for everything Razz

    I really, really wish they'd make a Ratchet & Clank game for PC once. I've played a few of them on the PS2 and PS3 while over at my friend's house, and they were pretty good.

    I actually planned to get a PS3 a few months ago, but then they announced FoC for PC and my main motivation vanished Smile

    Thats a wish that will never be fulfilled. Like Nintendo owns Mario, Sony owns R&C. So the day you get Mario on a Playstation game will be the day R&C drops on PC

    I'm really surprised at that. Really, really surprised. Hope I'm not the only Mass Effect fan though.

    I think we did have a Halo fan (JS) here at one point, but he got banned.

    BTW, Nif, you have the FoC demo, right? How is it so far?

    Excellent. The most notable changes from WfC to FoC is no double-jump now, no vehicle abilities now, and LB/L1/Ability 1 in the first game, is now Dash/Sprint/Roll. The amounts of guns in it now is great. Melee got toned down a lot for normal people, however.

    Vortex's missions is great though. Bumblebee's was classic stuff you'd expect from his mission, being all big and epic for him trying to save Optimus. But Vortex's mission was just epic. They say you're doing two full levels, but they both cut-off pretty early and then the trailer starts to buy the game.

    As for multiplayer. Well, customization is pretty great and classes are a lot more balanced now.
