Metro2033

Metro 2033 is looking and sounding like something pretty terrifying. But I don’t know what’s scarier; the monsters that ravage the underground train tunnels or the voiceover guy who sounds over-enthused about the whole thing. Watch it after the break.

For those of you that aren’t into the whole Twitter craze you probably haven’t heard Brian and Wugga’s latest chat about the game’s title amongst other things. It’s like a ButtonMasher Podcast but bite sized. Also don’t forget to check out the full list of ButtonMasher peeps if you’d like to get on board the Twitter train.

Update: There’s a new soundbite from the Brian-Wugga dream team, actually talking about the game (along with some table tennis).

This developer video shows what life is like on Taris 300 years after events occurring in Knights of the Old Republic.* Now I must say I’m not that into MMOs but Star Wars: The Old Republic is looking mighty interesting, especially seeing as BioWare are behind it.

*I’ve just gotten around to playing that one, shame on me I know. Still haven’t got off Taris yet so just spoiled it for myself! Word to the wise; don’t watch the video if you’re still planning on playing KOTOR.

Red Dead Redemption has cowgirls and nuns aplenty. They fight back, though I’m not too sure about the nuns, you never know what they’re hiding under there.

After I get my hands on Heavy Rain I think this is the one other game I’m looking forward to the most, apart from Splinter Cell: Conviction. You can find the aforementioned women after the break.

supermariogalaxy2

We just can’t get enough of that Mario guy, 29 years later and he’s still popping up! Announced today by Nintendo, Super Mario Galaxy 2 is coming to stores near you, around May 23rd.

Super Mario Galaxy was probably the best Wii game I’ve played so Nintendo certainly have their work cut out for them. It looks like riding Yoshi will be a big focus this time around but if you want proof you can see the trailer for yourself, you guessed it, after the break.

Update: The UK PAL release is 11th June, so I’d expect the NZ release to be around then too.

News today that Nintendo will be releasing Black Nintendo Wii Consoles in Australia (and presumably New Zealand) on March 11. By the looks of it the console bundle comes complete with everything you get with the current offering, just black. So if you were holding of buying one because it didn’t suit you decor you’ll be happy. Personally I think it’s about time for a price drop.

Borderlands - Banner

More Borderlands content is good! And even though the Americans spell armoury wrong, Secret Armory is available now for 800 MS Points.

Borderlands goes to ELEVEN! You may have seen some games raise their level cap by 5, or maybe even 10, but with The Crimson Lance Assassination Squads wreaking havoc and Crawmerax the Invincible being all invulnerable and stuff we knew you’d need more than just 10. And that’s why Borderlands goes to ELEVEN! The Secret Armory of General Knoxx is an add-on pack for Borderlands that adds new guns, new Class Mods, new vehicles, new missions, new enemy types, and increases the level cap to 61. In other words…best add-on ever. Of all time. Forever. The End. ELEVEN!

2K are following up last weeks release of Bioshock 2 with the announcement of it’s first DLC. It will be available on both the PS3 and Xbox360 ($6.95 and 400MS Points respectively). This first round of content doesn’t hold anything for the single player campaign but is focused on the multiplayer experience, single player expansion is promised for future downloads.

splintercell_conviction

Not much gameplay to see here but it sure looks like it would make a pretty slick action flick.
At least they did show someone actually playing the game last year but it does bother me when trailers focus on something other than the game itself.

Not long now until we take on Sam Fisher’s renegade mission in April. I know I’m looking forward to it! Have a geeze of the ‘Story’ trailer after the break…
