Dubstep Video Game Trailers

19 Mar

With the increased popularity of Dubstep inevitably comes the commercialization of the genre. I am seeing it everywhere. In particular in video game trailers. There have been several commercials recently with Dubstep somewhere in the commercial but below are few wub wub filled game trailers. I will keep adding more video game trailers as I find them.

Bioshock Infinite: Handyman

14 Mar

Part two in the Bioshock Infinite Heavy Hitters video doc features the giant, lumbering yet agile, mechanically melancholy Handyman. Ken Levine said they went through several iterations of the Handyman’s look before they landed on this version. I thought he was more of a Clark Gable black hair and mustache kind of looking villain in previous demos. I really like both looks, maybe there are multiple versions. Now I am equally excited to fight one and learn their sad backstory. Enjoy…

Fear 3 begins nine months after the events of the previous two games. You play as Point Man, recently captured and interrogated. You are freed by your brother Paxton Fettel, and set out to prevent the continuation of Alma’s bloodline. It is not so much the story that allows the game to be scary but rather the atmosphere. Throughout the game as you get closer to Alma you can hear shrieks of terror and shifts in the atmosphere. As if her contractions were felt by the world Continue reading

Assassin’s Creed 3 Screenshots

9 Mar

Like most gamers we are super excited to see what Assassin’s Creed 3 has in-store for us. Ubisoft has said it will be the biggest Assassin’s Creed yet. Colonial America creates a new set of challenges for the team. There were very few if any big cities in America at this time. Mostly rural and forested, these images help to show what we may come to expect. Robin Hood style woodland traversing and perhaps jaunts through Boston? It looks great so far. Is that hunting we see hinted at – perhaps a new gameplay element. I am hoping for hunting and skinning to create new clothing or weaponry? The main character is a half-native American named Ratohnhaké a.k.a. Connor so we can expect a brand new perspective on the Revolutionary War.

The story and gameplay are fluid and dark in this follow up to Alan Wake. During the single player campaign my time has been spent as follows: I walk around a bit following the mission directions, explore then just stop and look around. The game is beautiful, and I will never stop enjoying being able to look around with a flashlight. Something about pouring the flashlight from surface to surface in the game is absolutely petrifying. You feel like you are just a turn away from something terrifying Continue reading

Battlefield 3 is a modern military first person shooter. Unfortunately like most military shooters the story leaves much to be desired. You play as a soldier under interrogation regarding an incident you were recently a part of. Your missions are structured as flash back episodes you replay during your interrogation. The story was very reminiscent of Call of Duty Black Ops, which was structurally laid out the exact same way. Not to spoil the story or ending, but it was laid out in the EXACT same way Continue reading
