Sniper Elite 3 (PC [Reviewed], Playstation 4, Playstation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360,) Developer: Rebellion Publisher: 505 Games for consoles; Rebellion themselves for the PC Genre(s): Shooter Released:  June 27, 2014 PC   July 1, 2014 consoles ESRB Rating: M – Mature http://vortexeffect.net/2012/05/15/sniper-elite-v2-review/ http://vortexeffect.net/2013/11/03/sniper-elite-zombie-army-2-review/ This really is a continuation of the above reviews for the Sniper Elite V2 and its Zombie spin offs. If I wanted to be super lazy I could simply post those links and say this game is more of the same except in the African theater with larger and better level design, better graphics, and a few more customization choices and call it a day because that's basically it. But I can do better than that … [Read more...]

The good folks at Rebellion released a new Sniper Elite 3 trailer earlier today, and this one shows off the games various multiplayer offerings. You can check it out above. In addition to team based and free-for-all competitive modes, Sniper Elite 3 also features a co-op campaign and survival mode. Sniper Elite 3 releases on June 27th for PC and July 1st for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360. Smith's Sentiment: Really hope everyone took advantage of the deal yesterday (and this morning) and snagged Sniper Elite V2 for free on Steam in preparation for this one. The game is looking really good and the multiplayer appears fun, although I'm much more interested in the co-op (survival in particular just because I love that style of mode so much). … [Read more...]

Rebellion returns with the third entry in its acclaimed Sniper Elite series on July 1st, and gamers who pre-order the game for PC, Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, or PS3 will get the Hunt The Grey Wolf DLC mission. "Some say Hitler shot himself in a bunker in Berlin in 1945. Others believe he fell to a sniper bullet two year earlier during a secret trip to North Africa. Or was it his double? Decide for yourself when you get your hands on Sniper Elite 3's pre-order bonus "Hunt The Grey Wolf." In this mission, there's two Hitler's in Africa and you get to try and figure which is the real one. Here's a trailer for the DLC. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdSZM7sFNBQ Sniper Elite 3 hits stores in North America on July 1st on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 as published by 505 Games.

Payday 2 Now Free For PlayStation Plus Members

Overkill Software's cooperative first person shooter/bank robbery simulator Payday 2 is now available for free on PlayStation Store for PlayStation Plus members. Group up with up to three friends or go solo and plan and execute bank robberies. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gb-_DKC6wc4 Smith's Sentiment: If you aren't a subscriber to PS Plus and have a PlayStation device, mind if I ask why? PS Plus is the best value in gaming at only $49.99 a year. Payday 2 is only the most recent free title this month. Last Tuesday, Outlast (PS4) and Metro: Last Light (PS3) became free, while later this month Remember Me (PS3) will be free. Some Vita games will also be free. I've got Payday 2 downloading now, and I may even write a review of it depending on how much time I spend with it. … [Read more...]

Funky Barn Wii U Trailer is Funky Farming

That, ladies and gentlemen, is Funky Barn and its a Wii U launch title. I admittedly hadn't heard anything about this game until this trailer was released, and I really don't know how that happened. I've since read around the web and have seen people calling it shovelware, and that's nonsense. I like simple farming games (with the exception of FarmVille, as I don't care much for any Facebook game), and this one looks like it could be a lot of fun. Unfortunately, it's launching on November 18th, which is of course the Wii U launch date. So it's competing against heavy hitters like New Super Mario Bros U., ZombiU, Call of Duty Black Ops 2, Assassin's Creed III, Scribblenauts Unlimited, and many other titles. So it's likely to continue to fly under most people's radar, and that's too bad … [Read more...]
