Blitz: The League 2

This new football game is one of your only non-Madden options for this year.  It continues the legacy of its predecessor with plenty of illegal steroids and dirty hits.  There isn’t a big change in gameplay, which is a bit worrisome.  Hopefully the added bonuses will succeed in creating a better arcade football experience. There are plenty of extras aleady packed in though.  There’s a better clash system and improved minigames for injuring the... 

Mirror’s Edge

I feel like I have to mention this new game announced by EA’s DICE team.  It looks like a really interesting concept for a game.  It basically mixes Prince of Persia acrobatics with a cyberpunk environment while throwing in first person perspective for good measure.  They showed 5 minutes of real gamplay footage, so you can make a judgement of the rough-cut for yourself. Check it out at GameTrailers I just hope that they make the chase sequences intense. ... 

Endwar Voices Up

It’s time for another release from the mind of Tom Clancy.  This time it revolves around a global world war for precious resources.  Not exactly original, but you aren’t here for the story.  The new addition to the Clancy franchise is EndWar.  It will be an interesting addition to a growing genre.  This is the genre of strategy games for the consoles.  EndWar is certainly thinking outside the box.  They’ve adapted a new form of voice... 

Gears of War 2 – Update

It seems that Gears of War 2 is moving along nicely.  There are plans a lot of new graphical upgrades in the game to prevent a realistic environment for your war games.  There is also some general talk about improving the single player to make the game capable of standing on its own two legs.  There is a stronger campaign that is basically just an excuse to kill stuff, but that shouldn’t be a problem. The big talk so far is the multiplayer.  They...

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. ...
