I know some of you out there are huge DOA fans and the more we see of DOA 5 the more excited we get. The way the environments affect the matches, the action packed way the camera moves during matches and the new moves and combos are all top notch. Oh and did we mention jiggle physics? They’re on display as normal. Oh and if you get Ninja Gaiden 3 this upcoming week you’ll be get access to the DOA5 Demo. For some that’ll be worth it. Click to watch the demo.
We got a bit of early access to the upcoming Mass Effect 3 Demo and all I can say today is this: WOW! Bioware has truly raised the bar on this one by giving the gaming audience a different way to play the game for every play style, something I’ve never seen before in a game and I’m shocked at how well it worked. As the demo opens you’re asked if you want to play the game as a shooter, rpg or more as just a story based adventure game. The fact of the matter is, all these game styles work in Mass Effect as was proven with Mass Effect 2 but now you can focus on the game in either of these styles depending on how you play. Are you a shooter junkie? The game will push itself to be a rough and tumble shooter. Are you an RPG fan? Well leveling up, commanding troops and customization will be at the forefront of your game or if you just want to enjoy the journey and powerful story you can do that and the game will guide you along through the adventure to the very end, providing you with challenges but also making them a bit simpler. But what about all these elements? How good are they? Read on to find out.
Buy a copy of Dragon’s Dogma for Xbox 360, and you’ll get a chance to play Resident Evil 6 on July 3. Get it on PS3 and you’ll get access to the demo two months later on September 4. It’s funny since I was just thinking about this demo last night – and while I can’t say that I’m happy I have to buy something to play it, it’s still nice to know that it will indeed exist in the near future. I’m sure this will do a bit of good in getting copies of Dragon’s Dogma out the door, but if Capcom really wants to sell this game, I suggest a new Dragon’s Dogma demo to be released ASAP to make up for its abysmal showing at PAX (see my impressions here). I love the fantasy setting, and killing mythological creatures is always fun – unless you’re forced to do it at roughly 10 frames per second.
Check out a new video for the game after the break.
The demo for Asura’s Wrath hit today on PSN and XBL. I recommend you check it out for one of the most interesting gaming experiences you’ll have. I have no idea what the story is about, how Asura is, or what’s going on, but I’ll tell you this… I can’t wait to find out! The demo consists of 2 chapters from the game, Chapter 5 and Chapter 11. Both are large scale boss fights with amazing scope. It’s one of the most hybrid influenced game designed I’ve ever seen. The gameplay switches at a moments notice to fit the situation and as a result you have to stay on your toes and be engaged. Capcom is doing something really special here and I can’t wait to play the full game, especially after how this demo ends, which had me laughing at it’s brilliance. Read on to see why this shot up near the top of my most anticipated game list.
Uncharted fans should be very happy with how Golden Abyss for the Playstation Vita is turning out. We were all amazed at the burning environments from the previous trailers for Uncharted 3, and now it seems as though Sony wants the same level of destruction, mayhem and fun in their hand held counter part, Uncharted: Golden Abyss. This 11 minute demo is narrated by the game’s writer and director John Garvin. It’s a gorgeous looking game and we can’t wait to get our hands on it, as it’s been confirmed as a launch title for the Vita. Watch the amazing demo by clicking here.
So last week I was talking about why it was so great that Dragon Age 2 was getting a demo, and luckily for me, the demo worked out exactly as I had hoped. Yesterday, amidst the release of Killzone 3 and Bulletstorm, I still managed to play through said demo. (several times) What I found was both enlightening and game changing.
Dragon Age Origins came out November 3, 2009. It didn’t have a demo. I didn’t play it until December 2010 because, well, everything I heard about it made me think I would absolutely hate it. Luckily that wasn’t the case, and in fact Dragon Age ended up becoming one of my favorite games on the 360. So, it goes without saying that I’ll be playing Dragon Age 2 with or without a demo. But that’s not the reason why it’s so great that DA2 will in fact be gracing us with its presence in demo form. No, the reason it’s so great is because this is a highly customizable and very long RPG.
Fight Night has never been a game series that I go out of my way to spend time with. I had a boring and over powering experience with the first game back on Xbox and just never felt the desire to come back to the franchise. My friends invited me over and proceeded to do this thing that makes certain gamers feel superior to others… they beat you at a game that you’ve never played, when it’s all they play. I was annoyed.
Now that the demo for Fight Night Champion has come out, I have to say I’m rather impressed. An intuitive and fun combat system, mixed in with top notch visuals, recognizable names and a full story mode are just the tip of the iceberg that is Fight Night Champion. Find out more after the jump.
In just under two weeks, we’ll be able to experience the joy of shooting a man in the ass with such intensity that it literally “blows out”. Somehow, when I read that it sounds even dirtier than before.
Regardless of whether you’re into anal explosions, both XBOX 360 and PS3 owners will have the chance to play a bit of Bulletstorm’s Echo mode, in which we will “traverse a collapsed building on the deadly paradise planet Stygia as ex-Dead Echo leader Grayson Hunt”. Whoa. Lets just take a look at that again. We’ll be on not just a paradise planet, but a deadly paradise planet (not quite sure how that works) and I’m not sure if we’re playing an ex “Dead Echo” leader, or much more strangely, and ex-Dead “Echo” leader. Interesting.
Regardless of the logistics, this game looks like a whole lot of fun, and you can see for yourself on the 25th on your XBOX 360 or PS3. I only wish this wasn’t being released the same day as Dead Space 2. Come on, EA, you’re giving us too much stuff to play!
