SUPREME COMMANDER 2 Tensions Rise

Little has been revealed of the plotline for Supreme Commander 2 as of October 2009. A trailer for the game released at the Entertainment Software Association’s 2009 Electronic Entertainment Expo indicates that the story takes place twenty-five years after the conclusion of Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance, and centers on the breakdown of peaceful relations that the United Earth Federation, the Aeon Illuminate, and the Cybran Nation have experienced during that time, implying that war has been instigated through the deceit of some unrevealed party.

BAYONETTA Casting Spells and Getting Naked

Bayonetta

When I first saw this game I didn’t know what to think. There was a slick beauty to it not something  you associate with a new intellectual propertie, this only comes about in the second or third game in the series, Assassn’s Creed II and Uncharted 2 are good examples of this. It also reminded me of another game that looked and felt very similar, Devil My Cry. It was no great surprise them when I heard that the team behind this game also did Devil My Cry including director Hideki Kamiya,

She is a Witch

Bayonetta takes place in Vigrid, a fictional city in Europe. The titular character is a witch who shapeshifts and uses various firearms, along with magical attacks she performs with her own hair, to dispatch her foes. She possesses four pistols—two hand-held, and one attached to each heel—and has also been pictured with shotguns, rocket launchers, a glowing whip with a cobra’s head at the tip of it, and a two-handed katana. Bayonetta faces angelic and warrior-like enemies that confront and challenge her Her long hair which covers her body can become a weapon to attack, but once this happens she is left with not much to hide.

Hair Hath No Fury Like

Hair Hath No Fury Like

I have a review here from IGN that pretty well sums up what I have said and my others to

When I say “action game,” I refer of course to games like Devil May Cry, God of War and Ninja Gaiden. I think most gamers can agree that all these titles do similar things (despite their notable differences), so it’s safe for me to compare them all and claim that Bayonetta is my favorite  [more]

STAR TREK ONLINE: The Veil of Space Part I – Into the Lions Den

Star Trek Online

Cryptic Studies has just released its latest video for Star Trek Online and they get more detailed all the time this one I suspect is giving us an example of one of their episodes which they say will closely mirror actual episodes from the various series in the Star Trek universe. Players in the game will go thought about 20 of these episodes each one contributing to an overarching story for that season, this is just a general description but you get the idea.  This video represents a typical Star Trek story line which we have all seen many times in the series, but gives you a good idea of how space based and ground based elements would work together to further the plot development in that episode and the overall season leading to the season ending cliff hanger so to speak.

INTO THE LIONS DEN

Star trek Online will be released in North America on February 2 and in Europe on February 5
