How can we not love you now Lara Croft? They have taken us back in time to see the start of a marvelous traveler. I must say they’ve also made one of the best trailers I’ve ever seen. To show of what they’ve created, the thoughts of a new Lara and the world she will be thrown in to. Tomb Raider will finally be redefined and reworked, the game really needed it. I loved the first few games, but lately it’s been a bit too much of the good stuff. To see a new setting, a new feel and a new main character is lovely. Thank you!
How can you not love it! I’ve always been a huge fan of the subject madness and insanity, when it comes to games or any kind of entertainment like books or movies. Not only because of the weird things that can happen or take place, but also because of how they portrait the human mind. The latest call of duty even touched on the subject of brainwashing and how this showed up to the main character as visions and planted memories.
Silent Hill 2 is also game that intrigues me. “Everything” in that world was based on the main character James, memories, thoughts, feelings and even his own subconscious. It’s one of the games that I still return to forums from time to time to see what kinds of discussions are going on, or just read up on old ones. How the nuns is about his sexuality, pyramidhead being a creature he summons upon himself to punish him for what he done. IT IS AWESOME.
Alice: Madness Returns seems to have a lot of these hidden meanings as well, or at the very least I hope so. I hope they will let the community find small bits and pieces in the game that explains Alice and her state of mind without revealing it all in the story. It may be that, or it will just be a insane world where Alice uses her knife (and other weapons) to pass through obstacles. Either will be fine, in a way, I guess..
So why did I post all this? Becuase I’ve just seen the latest trailer ofcourse! Enjoy!
“Well, we own Guerrilla Games and they did a great job on Killzone 1 and 2,” he said. “I don’t know if you’ll see announcements about it, but I can promise you a Killzone 3.”

Some games just tend to sneak up on you over night, all of a sudden there is a trailer, a rumor, a release date, and you didn’t even notice when the company started working on the title in the first place. Lord of The Rings: War in the north, is that kind of title. All of a sudden I sat with a trailer in front of me and was unsure if this was going to be the new LOTR: Conquest, or Real Time Strategy game, what was going on here?
I bet some of you didn’t know about this either so here goes, after some digging:
“Electronic Arts released The Lord of the Rings: Conquest in January and as it turns out, it was their last crack at the franchise. Their rights to produce Lord of the Rings video games have expired.”
“The Saul Zaentz Company owns the worldwide exclusive rights to The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. They have a standing agreement with Warner Bros. over the video game rights so Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is probably going to be the publisher on whatever this game is.”
“Warner Bros. has just announced Lord of the Rings: War in the North, an action RPG due on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in 2011.
Developed in association with Middle-earth Enterprises, War in the North is said to explore both original and familiar narrative elements based on both the literary and motion picture content from The Lord of the Rings.”
It seems as though I’ve missed out on a game. Maybe it’s my lack of interest when it comes to the LOTR games in general, who knows. Will be interesting to see where this leads to at least, sadly it’s not a new RTS. It’s gonna be created by Snowblind Studios (Baldurs gate), and the game will stay true to moments and stories from the books, interesting.

From the creator Shinji Mikami that also created the Resident Evil series, comes a new game action packed game. Atleast that’s what we’ve been told, a near future conflict between USA and Russia and robots, and weapons and action and… let the trailer sell you the game hm?

What can I say…
Lost in Nightmares in a new DLC for Resident Evil 5, it’s the first part of two episodes, the second one coming later this year. Let’s just start off with what you get for your money with Lost In Nightmares.
An extra episode for the game.
Another Mercenary mode called Mercenary Reunion.
I probably forgot about something now but this is what you will see straight up and look at when you get it. Let’s start off with the main game part you get, It’s somewhat of a flashback playing Lost In Nightmares. You play as Chris and Jill and you will notice as soon as you get in to it, that this is one Spencer Mansion remake, the first half of the game reminding you of all the horrors that the first game had.
For true fans of the series, this is welcome; you will walk around nervously in your first play thru in fear of what they may have added to this house. I like that the game brings up this feeling, in a much better way than the whole fifth game did, you actually get stressed out and feel the fear crawling up your skin. Very well done.
I can’t really tell much more then this for one reason, which will lower the score of this DLC greatly. The length of the episode, with a friend you will be able to beat this in between 20 and 40 minutes. This is without reading documents that are placed around the episode, with that added you have about an hour maybe more of play time. That’s still not a lot. It feels as if they could have released both episode at the same time and that would have given you sufficient single player action. Right now, it’s disappointing. I’m not saying the game itself is bad, and you will enjoy playing it a couple of times, even if only to get the new achievements.
Graphics are good as always, and sweet old school touch have been added were you get a short animation when walking through doors in the first part of the game. This is very sweet for the fans that have stayed with the series. For players that only played Resident Evil 5 and even maybe RE4, will get lost in many of the old game references, but it’s been like this for quite some time in the series. Always going back to what happened in the older games.
The new Mercenary mode isn’t really “new”, I haven’t unlocked all the maps yet, but for what it looks like, it seems as though it’s the same maps in the first Mercenaries. The characters are new and this will give you a lot of play time that the episode didn’t give you. If you enjoyed trying to beat mercenaries for the characters the first time, this won’t let you down, new equipment builds and clothes may sound like nothing, but it will make you hunt for those last few points.
+ More Resident Evil
+ The horror is back
+ Mercenaries Reunion
– Way too short
– Should have been one single DLC for the whole two parts

I’ve hardly completed the 9th game (im in the last bit and I just got annoyed with it at one point). But I still love the little bluedressed boy-robot-thing! Mega Man 10 has been announced for Wii-Ware. Im sure it will be released to 360 and PS3 soon enough aswell tho. So happy moment for all us retro fanatics!
