Has Microsoft dropped the ball with the Xbox One reveal or was this the best reveal of a new console ever?
A few months ago I mentioned DARK and how I liked the look, or at least the sound, of it. I’ve been after a fix of Vampire action since the memorable experience that is Vampire: The Masquerade each and every time I play it. Kalypso are offering at least an experience, will it be as good as what I want?
Mars: War Logs is the absurdly named new RPG by Spiders Studios. Set on a human inhabited, war embroiled Red Planet, it follows the tale of the equally absurdly named Roy Temperance. Roys tale isn’t one for the faint of heart, featuring murder, mayhem, copious amounts of profanity and last but not least, attempted buggery. Welcome to Mars, tourist destination of kings.
The next Xbox will be revealed on May 21st! Visit xbox.com and you’ll the gears are in the works. Larry Hryb, AKA Major Nelson, has announced the reveal on his blog, along with a fancy hashtag, #XboxReveal – to get the hype train rollin’.
I’ve spoke about Mars: War Logs a few times already. Just mentioning the release and the little trailer. This isn’t anything massive update wise apart from a few screenshots, but it’s just something to feast your eyes on while you wait.
Spiders, the team behind Of Orcs and Men, have two games in the works. One, Mars: War Logs, is set to be released within the next few months and the second is the newly announced Bound By Flame.
The warning signs were there, our motion trackers should have picked up on it, but we chose to ignore the fact that there hadn’t been any pre-release reviews. We shouldnt have ignored the odd release date or the ridiculous amount of pre-release hype being pushed. But we did, and we bought it, and it was rubbish. I am talking of course, about the years biggest disappointment so far, Aliens: Colonial Marines.
It seems like we’ve been on the verge of it for a while now, and in fairness to Nintendo, it has already begun. But with Sony’s announcements this week, it feels like the Next Gen of consoles is really, finally on its way. Nintendo have got off to a reasonable, if slightly understated start. The Wii U has performed well enough, but apart from its first party efforts, games are based on the current gen. It seems like developers have been waiting for Sony and Microsoft to make their moves before announcing their intentions for new games, so perhaps soon the U will start to pick up pace, and potentially build up a steady fan base before the other contenders enter the ring.
You are Eric Bane. I am Eric Bane. Like Spartacus before him, Eric Bane is an enigma to those he opposes, whom we all can claim to be. I could be talking out of my arse right now but that’s what I do best. From what I can tell Eric Bane is the lead character in Kalypso’s upcoming stealthy-action game, and he is a vampire.
Microsofts Xbox 360 sales really took the lead in the UK last year and is fast catching up to the current leader Wii. The 360 has to sell less than a modest 200,000 in the UK to earn the title of the biggest selling console this gen in the UK
