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...]

Sniper Elite 3 Multiplayer Trailer

Sniper Elite 3 Logo

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...]

Sniper Elite 3 Logo

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...]

Review: Sniper Elite V2

Sniper Elite V2 (PC [Reviewed], Playstation 3, Xbox 360,) Developer: Rebellion Publisher: 505 Games for consoles; Rebellion themselves for the PC Genre(s): Shooter Released: May 2, 2012 ESRB Rating: M – Mature This is the anti Call of Duty/Battlefield game. It's also technically a third person shooter except for when sniping, which is what the bulk of the gameplay involves. If you're itching for something completely different, and arguably the opposite of those types of first person shooters, then I can wholeheartedly recommend Sniper Elite V2 on the platform of your choice. If you're only interested in first person shooters like Call of Duty and Battlefield and other run and gun types of games then avoid this like the plague because you'll probably hate it. As you might intuit from the … [Read more...]

Sniper Elite V2 Quick Impressions

I think this game is going to take a lot of people by surprise. I really couldn't be happier with it. I liked the demo and knew I was buying a good game but I didn't expect to outright love it like I do. Once you get the gameplay down, it's basically videogame crack. Once you get past the opening areas, the levels really open up nicely as well. This is as far removed from run and shoot as you can get. You have the freedom to a point to approach challenges the way you want. For example: In interiors I like to usually go Silent Assassin Agent 47 style up close with my silenced pistol otherwise it's all sniper all the way. You get an ever growing list of real life weapons from the era as you progress. The better shots you make, the more points you make which go on leaderboards … [Read more...]

Supremacy MMA – Unlicensed Brutality Trailer

Supremacy MMA is looking pretty brutal (in a good way) in the latest trailer for the game. In addition to all the blood, you'll see near the end that you'll be snapping bones and breaking legs in the upcoming fighting MMA game from Kung Fu Factory and 505 Games. Supremacy MMA is available September 27th for PS3 and Xbox 360, for $49.99. … [Read more...]

Supremacy MMA Out September 23rd For PS3, X360

The MMA fighting game, with some arcade gameplay, from Kung Fu Factory and 505 Games has been given a release date of September 23, 2011 in the United States for the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3. “Supremacy MMA is an extremely important new IP for 505 Games and represents another level of depth to our growing roster of games,” said Ian Howe, President, 505 Games North America. “With that in mind, we believe the tremendous value of the title combined with the overwhelmingly positive response we’ve had from consumers and writers during early gameplay sneak peeks, tells us this title deserves to launch in the thick of the fall buying season.” “There’s a huge opening in the market with no retail fighting games, and specifically no MMA games, hitting this fall so we’re ready to deliver … [Read more...]
