Today Ubisoft released a pile of information regarding the upcoming

Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands

The game looks pretty awful honestly. Considering this is one of the most beloved video game franchises in history it is a bit of bullshit it’s being released the same day as Alan Wake, Red Dead Redemption and Split Second.  Regardless, i hope Forgotten Sands is better than the basic, one button disaster released by Ubisoft in 2007. Yes, the game sucks admit. it.

Ubisoft is following the current trend and offering a bunch of different pre orders depending on where you buy  Forgotten Sands. Check them out below.

Launching UAV!

Today Ubisoft released some info on the critically acclaimed Ghost Recon series. TOM CLANCY’S GHOST RECON: FUTURE SOLDIER™  . According to Ubsisoft the game will feature “production values of a Hollywood blockbuster to deliver a stunning package that will make players truly feel like the elite soldier of tomorrow.” Thats funny considering Infinity Ward said that last November, Bioware said that same line in January and DICE said it in March. Enough is enough we know games are cinematic. The question is can i tea bag my opponent in multi player?

Here is what the back of the box will read:

•       The Ghosts pack the latest and best high-tech military equipment, inspired by actual prototypes.
•       Blend into any environment with mind-bending optical camouflage.
•       An exoskeleton enhances the Ghosts’ physical abilities, allowing them to run, leap, slide and kick farther & faster than any soldier on the field today.
•       Unparalleled physicality and lethal expertise in melee close combat are now at your disposal. Control all-new heavily armed unmanned ground and air combat drones.
•       Unleash large-radius firepower with a personal mortar capable of firing multiple guided rockets simultaneously.

Natural Cooperation
•       Instantly coordinate combat against 360° threats: link-up with your Ghost teammates in a formidable formation at the push of a button.
•       Move-and-shoot-as-one with your friends or AI teammates with no training and no complex orders system.
•       Benefit from your teammates’ high-tech abilities and combine them to unleash the power of an army at the pull of your trigger.

Epic Solo and Co-op Campaign!
•       Join the Ghosts as Kozak, a fresh recruit whose elite unit is the United State’s best and only means of retaliation when a nationalist coup unseats Russia’s legitimate president
•       Experience multiple aspects of the war from the unique perspectives of a high-level bodyguard, an engineer, a civilian and more.
•       Play the single- or split-screen cooperative campaign across multiple theatres as the shadow of global conflict creeps across Northern Europe and beyond.

Fast-Paced, Addictive Multiplayer Mode
•       Link-up for heated 8 vs. 8 adversarial matches and combine the four balanced class abilities, plus drones and individual gear.
•       Seamless ranking progression in Single, Co-op and Adversarial modes: unlock multiple rewards for your Ghost or your Clan.

Thanks to Ubisoft for all the awesome information.

Gears of War 3 for April 2011 – Xbox 360 News at IGN.

I'm Tiny

This isn’t really surprising to anyone. The only thing that I’m finding a bit hard to believe is that this game will come out April of next year.  Oh, Well. I never got into the multiplayer in the Gears series. Cant get over the long, boring wait times in between deaths. One thing that is undeniable is this series arguably has some of the finest graphics on the 360 still.

Red Dead Redemption trailer offers taste of life in the old west.

This game keeps looking better and better. I’m not too excited that this game comes out the same day as Alan Wake, but what can you do. What do you think? Are you looking forward to Red Dead?

Later this year Project Natal will be released here in the states.  Now i’m ready to see some game play videos! I become more excited for this years E3 by the day

via IGN Video: Project Natal Xbox 360 Trailer – CES 2010: Trailer.

My Ultimate goal in life is to become a videogame analyst or PR person. So in honor of my future i will make some early predictions about 2010.

1) Grand Theft Auto 5 will not be released.

2)New Call of Duty by Treyarch will be set in Vietnam.

3) Ps3 will gain mainstream cultural acceptance as Blue Ray becomes standard and people attempt to show their wealth.

4) Grand Tourismo 5 will eat Forza 3 alive.

5) Alan Wake will be Amazing

6) Bioshock 2 will be Dissapointing

7) God of War 3 and Final Fantasy 13 will propel PS3 sales to the moon.

8  New Zelda will use Wii Fit

9) Nintendo will announce a new Wii

10)Natal will be a huge success with middle aged women and casual gamers.

Some of these are pretty basic but its early in the year right? Disagree, Agree? Think i am nuts?

Street Fighter IV
Borderlands
Plants vs Zombies
Assasins Creed 2
Shadow Complex
Prototype
DJ Hero
Modern Warfare 2 (kind of)
NFS: Shift
Batman: Arkham Asylum ( Kind of got bored towards the end)
Lumines
Fight Night Round 4

My favorite game of last year would have to go to either Shadow Complex or Borderlands. Two games that brought the fun back to games.
I will also say that Plants versus Zombies stole more time from me than any other game in the month of December. What an experience.

I’m going to say this as fast as possible. Bayonetta is one of the best games ever made! In a time of generic rehashes this game pushes new boundaries. Ok im done. Have fun!
