“The Last of Us” Is Willing To Do Anything To Survive
Perhaps the best trailer to come out of Gamescom today is from Naughty Dog’s upcoming game, The Last of Us.
Desperately doing anything to survive, Joel and Ellie are out on the road and minding their own business until they get ambushed by other survivors. What follows is a thrilling example of the grit and tenacity that gamers have drooled over since the game was first unveiled earlier this year. And the finale is a chilling example of the harsh world Joel and Ellie are living inside of.
The Last of Us is expected to be released in 2013 on the PlayStation 3.
“Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified” First Trailer From Gamescom
The biggest shooter franchise in the world is headed to the Vita this year, but it’s looking pretty rusty on Sony’s portable.
Being developed by Nihilistic Games—responsible for the mediocre games PlayStation Move Heroes and Resistance: Burning Skies—the shooter appears to be a port of the two-year-old Black Ops and is looking decidedly last-gen, but is trying to make up with it by bringing lots of portable action.
Also announced was 4 vs. 4 online multiplayer with the staple modes like Team Deathmatch and Kill Confirmed. Classic maps are being tailored to fit the smaller Vita and new maps will be added into the mix.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified will hit store shelves November 2012 on the PlayStation Vita.
Sony is headed in the right direction with the Vita now that they’ve announced Cross-Buy at Gamescom today in Germany. At their press conference, Sony unveiled that beginning with PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale, purchasers of the PS3 version of the game will be able to get the PS Vita version of the game at no extra charge.
This offer will not only apply to PlayStation All Stars, as Sony also announced the upcoming Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time and Ratchet and Clank: Full Frontal Assault will offer the same deal when they launch.
Capcom Is Asking If You “Remember Me”
Capcom showed off a “new” game today at Gamescom (although it was actually introduced last year) called Remember Me from Dontnod Entertainment.
The game is about Nilin, an elite memory hunter with the ability to break into minds and steal or erase memories. But soon enough, Nilin runs into a predicament because someone has erased her memory and now she must do whatever it takes to find out why. The game doesn’t seem to have the most interesting sounding plot, but it does deal with some interesting subject matter and the action gameplay looks like fun.
And, is it just me or does Nilin have a Joanna Dark look going on?
Remember Me will be released May 2013 for PS3, 360, and PC.
