Mercenaries 2 – Personal Worries

I personally love the ideas behind the Mercenaries series.  It functions on the principle that blowing up stuff in a sandbox environment is fun.  I support that.  I’m worried by the new looks at gameplay we’ve been getting though.  There have been several times when they’ve demonstrated the gameplay as the August 31st release date draws near.

2K Games To Enlist ‘Dark Sector’ Devs for BioShock PS3 Help

2K Games has called upon the help of Digital Extremes, who made the disappointing game Dark Sector, for help on the PS3 port of BioShock.  The only plausible explanation of this is that 2K Games is having a hard time getting their award-winning FPS running correctly on the PS3.  This happens to be the only thing Digital Extremes did correctly with Dark Sector.  It’s good to see a game company admit when they can’t do something instead of release... 

Preview of James Bond: Quantum of Solace

There’s some new information being kicked around by the developers for this one.  A series of screenshots were just released to tease us for the future release of this companion to the Bond movie of the same name.  The graphics look pretty sharp but I’m worried about some descriptions. I feel a mix of hope and fear towards this new title.  The game has been picked up by developing powerhouse Treyarch and uses the same engine as Call of Duty 4. ...

Guitar Hero On Tour Drum Kit video

Okay, I’ll admit it.. I think the new drum layout for Guitar Hero On Tour is awesome. The fact that the pads on the drum kit are now pressure sensitive, and it now is wireless is a nice step forward. Sure, it’s just a take off of the Rock Band formula, which most people will be quick to point out. But I still think that it looks like they’re trying to one up the formula, rather than just completely rip off their competition. That’s fine...
