Today, Konami Digital Entertainment Inc. has announced the eagerly-awaited Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) 2014 will be available in retail stores nationwide in North, Central and South America on September 24, 2013 for PlayStation®3 and Xbox®360.
And so it happens. Microsoft decided to backtrack on some of its next gen plans to appease the consumers. The new Xbox console will no longer have the rigid DRM rules and online check-in requirements. Well, at least it won’t have them right out of the box. Who knows what happens down the road. But instead of speculating, does this change anyone’s mind? Or is it a little too late for Microsoft’s 180?
With the abject failure of Aliens: Colonial Marines, now seemed like the best time to revisit an old classic. While Aliens Infestation for the Gameboy DS is a fun 2D side-scroller and 2010’s Aliens vs. Predator is nowhere near as bad an FPS as many claim, neither are what you’d call fantastic games. To see a truly great example of what can be done with the xenomorph license you’d need to look back to the early 2000s when Monolith Productions were allowed a shot at making a sequel to an already big success with Aliens vs. Predator 2.
However, rather than being a review this is to be a comparison. A step by step detail of each aspect of both games to detail why one is a lauded success fondly remembered by fans and the other is a hated wreck. Both for reasons obvious and otherwise.
This week on the ParaNerds Podcast: The Paranerds speak about Kingdom Hearts 3DS, Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, Fall Out New Vegas, Skyrim, Draw Something, Guild Wars 2 and Borderlands 2, along with new releases and NEWS (See below). The two also read some fan mail and answer some questions. Kevin and Rooster also go over 30 random gaming questions, and announce the winner for the Resident Evil 6 Giveaway.
There are some ideas which just don’t work in practice. No, not the idea of combining Aliens with Predator, in spite of the films that has been largely good – I mean this game specifically. AvP has consistently been an FPS series with the option of playing as a predator, a xenomorph or a remarkably durable colonial marine. It was an easy thing to do, two classes had big guns and a fun variety of gadgets in their films while the xenomorphs they gave the ability to run up walls. So you have to wonder what the developers were thinking when they decided to make Extinction an RTS.
Hell nerds, welcome to live updates from E3. Yeah, you’re probably watching it live and tweeting about it just like me (@heardaboutSerge), but for those who don’t have the luxury of hiding the stream at work. In any case, I will update you guys through the day on what happens through out the day. And here we go, Microsoft just got done, here is what you missed and here is what I think about it (like anyone cares about the latter).
You may have noticed that something was wrong. And by that I mean nothing was posted over the past few days (all in all we missed 2 updates). Not to worry, I am alive and well, and ready to jump right back into the gaming news. Today we have an extra special edition of covering two days worth of interesting stuff (depending on your definition of the word interesting) as well as a round up of the games that came out today. Let’s get to it.
If you have internet (unlike me and Kevin since our provider likes to toy with our hearts) you probably already heard the news, and if you haven’t, here it is. The news is out, and Master Chief will be in the swing of things yet again worldwide on November 6th. Four years after the conclusion of Halo 3, Master Chief returns yet again to face “an ancient evil that threatens the face of the entire universe.” Sounds chilling.
