TGS 2011: Mass Effect 3

Quick rundown:

  • The Squad points system has been overhauled to offer more focused specialization for each power: area of attack vs. focused and powerful
  • Apparently there is no one brave/stupid enough to go up against the Reapers (due apparently to indoctrination), but the return of this “fertile female” to the Krogans means they will join Shepard in the fight.
  • Since no one is currently against the Reapers, that means all the Cerberus troops you fight against are allied WITH them somehow — not too surprising given the end of Mass Effect 2.
  • Liara is totally wearing her Lair of the Shadow Broker outfit! Lazy? Or just continuity?
  • Heat sink packs are still littered about this game. Oh well!
  • Play controls haven’t changed much, but I often find myself rolling out of cover when I just want to stand up. Is there a better button for this?
  • All of the usual biotic powers work the same way as the last two games, so warping the armor of the final piloted Cerberus mech was really no problem.

No, really! I turned to Vinnk after I was done and asked him if he was scared for me facing off against that huge machine.

All too easy.

VERY much looking forward to this in March 2012!

Gamescom 2011: Uncharted 3 Trailer and Footage

I’ve only just started digging through the trailers and footage from Gamescom in Germany, but I’m already sick of hearing that mildly british voice say “pegi 16” or “pegi 18” at the top of each video.
Once you get past that irrelevant rating system (to our North American readership at least), this video will show you some Uncharted 3 action. Here we see a bit more of Drake boarding that plane that ends up in flames in the initial announcement of Uncharted 3.

After the cut, find off camera footage of the gameplay demo.

SDCC 2011: Mortal Kombat Legacy Panel, DLC and final episode

ENI posted about this video. It features the final episode of the Mortal Kombat Legacy web series. It is not wholly clear if the series will continue past this point. The video begins with series Director Kevin Tancharoen making a few comments on the series. After his comments it cuts to the episode in full featuring Sektor and Cyrax, followed by some applause. Unfortunately, thats all. At the end of the panel, Mortal Kombat series creator, Ed Boon announced that the new DLC for the latest game in the franchise would be Freddy Krueger. You can see Freddy’s gameplay trailer after the break. He will be available to play on August 9th.

SDCC 2011: Talia Al Ghul confirmed for Batman: Arkham City

EW got the scoop to reveal that Talia Al Ghul will be in the new game, Batman: Arkham City, the much anticipated sequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum. I’m just going to quote the article because it sums everything up pretty well.

EW can exclusively confirm that Stana Katic, best known for playing Detective Kate Beckett on ABCís Castle, will voice the character of Talia al Ghul in the upcoming video game Batman: Arkham City, the follow-up to 2009?s much-beloved Batman: Arkham Asylum. Thereís no word yet on how Talia will figure into the gameís storyline. In the comics, Talia is the frequently conflicted daughter of Raís al Ghul, one of Batmanís archenemies. In spite of this, Talia is often a love interest for the Dark Knight. The two even get married at one point, with Talia giving birth to Batmanís son, Damian Wayne.

Katicís involvement in the game will be announced later today at a Comic-Con panel for Batman: Arkham City, which hits stores Oct. 18 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon Sideswipe DLC – I’d Buy That for a Dollar!

Sideswipe Transformers Dark of the Moon DLC is 80 Spacebucks

The first DLC character for Transformers: Dark of the Moon is now available. Sideswipe is available for 80 spacebucks, which by my estimate is roughly a dollar. The PS3 version is similarly 99 cents. You know what I have to say to that?

Here are some screenshots of what this character looks like:

Sideswipe from Transformers: Dark of the Moon in Vehicle Mode Shooting some guy Sideswipe from Transformers: Dark of the Moon in Vehicle Mode Driving Around

Famicom Dojo Podcast: A History of Console Region Locking

Region locking is nothing new. It hasn’t taken many different forms, but wasn’t always deliberate either. Many handhelds were exempt from this scheme for the longest time (including the Game Boy and DS series), but with time all things change. SeanOrange and Vinnk discuss the very state of affairs that necessitates the existence of organizations like Operation Rainfall, how they came to be, and where they might go from here.
