FEAR 3 Logo
Horror first-person shooter title FEAR 3, also known as F3AR, is out today in North America, with European and Australian launches to follow in the coming week. The game has launched on all three platforms: PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, which is good news so nobody is left out. We’ll see if we can muster our guts and courage together to play the game without getting nightmares after, and post a review when (if?) we do.

Like spending more money on three month old game titles you might have already chucked in your archive shelf? You’ll love this one! EA/Crytek have just released their Decimation Map Pack which contains five new maps for the game with two new weapons. That’ll be ten bucks please… no, seriously.
Karl Troedsson, DICE GM, talks Battlefield 3 and E3
DICE General Manager, Karl Troedsson, has just written about how excited they are for E3 next week as they’ll be showing both singleplayer and multiplayer demos at the convention.

Some multiplayer features which he has also revealed include the ability to use vehicles in multiplayer (we’re guessing […]
An official trailer has just been put online ahead of E3 2011, showcasing next year’s multi-platform Tomb Raider title. The game, named just Tomb Raider, is a reboot of the series (Kinda like how the makers of The Fast and The Furious probably ran out of names and just used ‘Fast and Furious’ for the fourth movie), will continue to feature the game’s traditional protagonist Lara Croft and has an expected due date of Q3 2012… that’s more than a […]
Crysis 2 DirectX 11 demo at Computex 2011

Uncharted 3 Multiplayer changes
In a brief casual interview style video filled with repeated usage of super duper most awesomely epic words such as ‘epic’ and ‘awesome’, Robert Cogburn and Justin Richmond, two main game developers behind Uncharted 3 talk about how they plan on making Uncharted 3 quote ‘epic, epic, epic’… and did they mention… epic… and also some stuff on how the game dynamics will be changed in this third installment in the widely successful Playstation-exclusive […]
Age of Empires Online: August 16 launch
Word from Microsoft themselves points that their Age of Empires Online game is coming out in less than 3 months’ time on August 16. This spiritual spinoff, I really wouldn’t call it a successor or reboot to the Age of Empires made by the now-defunct Ensemble studios and it would be insulting to the developers of the original 3 games if I did, to the series does away with the moderately […]
Here’s an official video trailer of the upcoming Metro: Last Light horror/post-apocalyptic first person shooter. Scaring the heck out of you in 2012… From this one minute long trailer, it seems we’ll be seeing more of Artyom, his homemade underground Russian guns and weaponry, more scary mutated Metro subway monsters and the ever-messy violent politics between the post-apocalyptic subway station dwellers. Check the trailer out in its High-Definition glory!

It seems that the sequel to the original Metro 2033 horror-shooter video game will see some nice improvements. Named ‘Metro: Last Light’ by its developers at 4A Games, the game will continue to be set in post-apocalyptic Moscow/Russia and have its gameplay completely reworked from scratch. The folks who are making the game hope to make the combat system more sophisticated as they acknowledged the original Metro 2033 combat system was a little underwhelming.

Assassin’s Creed Revelations
Mark your calendars folks! Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed UK channel has just released a short 53 second “teaser trailer” which sports Ezio in a voice-over, muttering something about finding out the truth and how everything will end; with the miniature trailer ending with “Full, exclusive trailer… Coming 7th June”. That’s during the annual E3 Expo, which means we should expect to see more details being announced by Ubisoft between now and then.
