Here are the latest marketing/hype machinations of the upcoming game releases for your viewing and discerning pleasure.
REVENGE SOLVES EVERYTHING. Clearly my mum taught me wrong when she said that I should be the better man and walk away from bullies. Because slicing throats and jumping from rooftops seem to be a whole lot more satisfying. Anyway, this seems like a mega cross between Assassin’s Creed and Thief, which is not a bad thing. I certainly like stopping bullets with my hand.
I find the Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto body doubles in the new Star Trek co-op shoot’em up to be strangely uncanny. I also love how they made Star Trek the game about shooting things rather than flying space ships and making peace with strange aliens on other worlds. Expect a lot of beaming up. This game is supposed to come as a “sequel” to the J.J. Abrams-lens-flare-prone-reboot-movie and prequel to the upcoming Star Trek 2 movie also by J.J. Abrams.
Diablo III – Monk reveal
I love how the Monk is Russian-sounding. But then Russia doesn’t exist in the Diablo universe. So my thoughts are invalid.
Dark Souls: Prepare to Die PC edition
I never got to play Demon’s Souls or Dark Souls because they were console games. But then some people wrote their names down on a piece of paper and sent it to the developers, and now there’s a PC version. Yay! So we can all er… prepare to die soon.
