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…

F.E.A.R. 3 | First Person, Shooter, Survival Horror | 2011 | Site
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

Battlefield 3

Battlefield 3 | First Person, Shooter, Action | 2011 | Site
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

Dead Island

Dead Island | First Person, Action, Survival Horror | 2011 | Site
Dead Island takes place on an exotic, tropical island where a zombie outbreak has destroyed the island and infected most of the inhabitants. You take control of one of four characters on a resort for different reasons all with unique skill sets. Dead Island is an excellent blend of first person action and survival horror. There is also a light RPG element that allows each character to level up different skill sets. It also allows you to assemble, upgrade and create weapons. The zombie genre in video games is definitely over saturated but Dead Island adds some twists that help set it apart Continue reading

The Darkness 2

The Darkness 2 | First Person, Shooter, Action | 2012 | Site
I loved The Darkness when it was released in 2007. Which was only amplified by my love of Mike Patton. The Darkness 2 picks up years after the first game. Remaining the protagonist from The Darkness you are Jackie Estacado. Jackie has become head of a crime family and is still morning the loss of his girlfriend Jenny. I enjoyed the plot and story in The Darkness 2 a great deal more then the first game. The new art style the game takes on (I will discuss later) helps even more to bring the story and characters to life. Each scene in the game could be a panel in a comic book. Being adapted from Top Cow’s comic book The Darkness, Digital Extremes pays homage to the original material Continue reading

The Darkness 2 Demo

The Darkness 2 Demo | First Person, Shooter, Action | 2012 | Site
I loved The Darkness when it was released in 2007. Which was only amplified by my love of Mike Patton. The Darkness 2 Demo only reveals a tiny bit of the story from what I’ve gathered is as follows. You are still the antagonist gangster from the first Darkness, Jackie Estacado. The demo starts with Jackie captured by a, lets say, evil looking crippled gentleman seeking to take his powers. Ok, enough guessing about the story. Quad wielding, which these games have hailed as their bread and butter, is back and feels great Continue reading
