Visceral could be onto a winner: Playing hostage negotiator in 'Battlefield: Hardline' - MMGN

Posted: 22nd August 2014 - 21:32

MMGN writes: Visceral Games has big shoes to fill. The California-based studio is perhaps best known for its Dead Space series, but it doesnt have the same passionately backed gamer community as the Battlefield series does. Its first full-blown entry in the series -- it worked on the Battlefield 3 DLC, End Game, in 2013 -- is not shying away from its obvious disparity with the series proper. While traditional cops and robbers lore is quite far removed from the militarised conflicts weve come to expect from the series, Battlefield Hardlines rhetoric is shaped around a fresh take on the genre, and all eyes are on Visceral to perhaps, just maybe, reignite a branch of the first-person shooter in the same way past Battlefield entries have. One such mode in Hardlines multiplayer, Rescue, purports to strengthen the games ties to the cops and robbers narrative. The games initial delay to make it feel more like a cop drama is an obvious attempt at balancing an experience still f...

Why Arent Xbox Fans Tired of Being Second Best?

Posted: 22nd August 2014 - 20:46

CCC Says: "People have accused me of being a shameless Sony fanboy. The vitriol Ive exposed for Microsoft and the Xbox brand (specifically regarding their recent next-gen endeavors) has been well documented on the site for the last year now. As a result, Ive been labeled a shill for Sony. Its clear my apparent lack of journalistic integrity or an objective opinion is the reason behind me being THIS down on our little green and black friend (obviously because I have a hidden agenda against it). Alas, my motivations Ive worked so diligently to keep secret have finally been lay bare for all the world to see. My true colors have been revealed, as it turns out I truly do bleed pure PlayStation blue. All hail to the Sony motherland!"

Sixty Second Shooter Prime Reviewed - Cliqist

Posted: 22nd August 2014 - 20:45

Marcus Estrada writes: "Sixty Second Shooter Prime is, well, a top-down shooter. You play as a tiny triangular ship that must rack up as many points as possible over the span of sixty seconds. During this minute players utilize twin-stick shooter controls (one analog stick for movement and the other for shooting) to avoid and/or destroy enemies. Every level is fairly small and has an exit somewhere on it. Once you reach the exit youre immediately transported to the next level with enemies still in hot pursuit."
