Fez, The Rotating Camera Game

I like Fez, I’m excited to play Fez, I wish Fez was out already. What I don’t like, though, is that Fez trailers seem to consist of as little game play as possible, with added rotating camera. Just in case you’re not sure, at this point, that you’re going to need to rotate the camera to navigate the seemingly 2D puzzles.

Mass Effect 3 – The Uncanny Valley Trailer

I mean, it’s cool and all, but…

Will give me nightmares.

Do you think anyone at Bioware said anything? “That girl looks weird.” “That’s not my favorite.” Anything? Everything else looks great, but, man, those people (including Shepard) are all messed up looking.

Also, I like the idea of playing a whole game as a bunch of futuristic resistance fighters on an alien occupied planet earth like sniper guy. I think that would be really cool. You’re not the heroes that save the day. You’re just a bunch of guys trying to kill as many aliens as possible before you piss off the aliens so much they decide to crush you, which you, the player, know they can do whenever they choose. Is that the plot of Resistance: Fall of Man? I don’t think it is. More like Half Life without any hope of actually doing anything major, you’re just waiting around for Gordan Freeman to save the day, you’re the cannon fodder clearing the way for him to do something totally awesome. Like, I really would enjoy playing a whole game as that sniper guy. No hope of actually winning the whole war, but you can kill a lot of aliens. I hate aliens (Liz knows this). Maybe the goal is to get as far as possible without causing too much damage to the aliens, a balancing act between killing aliens and over exerting yourself.

Vanquish E3 2010

Platinum Games’ (Bayonetta, Mad World) latest game, Vanquish, is a third-person shooter featuring a cover system similar to Gears of War and the ability to slow down time. Looks pretty interesting, I like the jet pack allowing the player to move quickly to get under cover. Also, an important warning. Elect a female president and next thing you know San Francisco is gone and Russia has a robot army.

Atlus Announces Rock of Ages

My mind is blown right now, I don’t even know what to say. A mix of strategy and…controlling a giant rock, all while travelling through art history. I’m not sure if this is for PC, XBLA, and PSN, does “digital distribution” mean all platforms?

A rock-solid combination of deep strategy, rock-rolling action, and captivating art and music from throughout history!

Two castles stand opposed, bridged by an uneven, narrow pathway. One is yours, and you’re quite fond of it. See how the parapets catch the sunlight ever so stylishly? The other is your enemy’s; they’re a jerk, and their crappy crenellations are driving down your property values. Also, their castle sucks, justification enough to try crush it using an enormous rolling stone. Unfortunately, they’ll have a chance to plan and build up some security, doing everything they can to derail your razing rock. Get through their defenses and you’re one step closer to crushing their unsightly tower (see also: their hopes and dreams). But don’t take your turn for granite. Once your turn is over, your opponent’s begins…

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II E3 Trailer

Probably the best trailer I’ve seen out of E3 this year. I didn’t play the first game and had no intention of playing the second until watching this, which kind of sold me on the idea. Did Vader really expect like seven storm troopers to kill him?
