Remember back in Battlefield 1942 when you could jump off of a plane, defeat your assailant with a rocket launcher, then jump back into the plane? No? Well, you missed out on some fun times!
The move, called a “loop zook”, is a totally insane move where you set your plane on a loop, eject out, use a rocket launcher on your attacker to kill them, and then jump back into the plane.
A recent video posted from the Battlefield 3 beta shows that, though EA and DICE have been touting that this is a “realistic” game, that you can still do almost the same, ahem, technique, during dogfighting! Whether this will be “fixed” or called “legacy” is uncertain, but I say keep it! It’ll make dogfighting a tad more interesting! Oh, and for the uninitiated, we do have a vid of the same thing being done in Battlefield 1942 as well.
I love my fighting games. There is no doubt. And to be honest, I think I am pretty good at these type of games. I am not the best, nor am I anyone that would stand some sort of chance at the annual EVO. But there are a few things that bother me about this beloved genre to say the least.
No, you’re not reading this wrong. Keiji Inafune, widely credited as the man responsible for Megaman, has unveiled his newest game… and it’s a return to mascot based games. Titled Kaio: King of Pirates, the game is loosely based off of the Romance of the Three Kingdoms story (not the game which had a spin off called Dynasty Warriors which was in turn based on the story) but has anthropomortphic characters instead. And yes, Liu Bei is the penguin, Zhang Fei is the big Yeti looking dude, and Guan Yu is the Walrus with the sword. Oh and Lu Bu is the dragon. We’ll see if the game’s cutesiness translates well to the gameplay since this CG trailer is just here to whet our appetites.
Sony teased about well, something, several days ago and they’ve finally revealed what it is. As part of their “Long Live Play” marketing campaign, they created this incredible video that shows the relationship of the roles we take when we play and the gamer in all of us. In a way, it reminds me of Toy Story where the toys show their loyalty and play with their friend, Andy. It’s touching, and it’s definitely something that we all have in common as gamers. Long live play indeed.
That title is not a typo. Tomorrow on the Playstation Store, the following titles are coming out:
- God Hand
- Maximo: Ghosts to Glory
- Odin Sphere
- Ring of Red
That’s a great list of somewhat rare titles. The bigger news is that these are ps2 titles on your ps3, whether or not it is one of the older models. There will be no trophies, but these are the ps2 games in their original form.
Edit: Destructoid reports that each title will be priced at $9.99.
When the Nintendo Wii was launched back in 2006, it came with a electronic download shop. Since that time the Wii has built a library of both classic and new games available for download. Of course as time went on, Nintendo would start to incorporate these features into the newer DSI models of the Nintendo DS. And than of course with it’s successor, the Nintendo 3DS, it would do the same.
