Diablo III New Monk Class Reveal!

ss90-hiresBlizzcon 2009 is going down this weekend but it seems Asia got the jump again. A website revealed (leaked?) the fourth class for Diablo III.

The Monk will follow the Barbarian, Witch Doctor and the Wizard and will feature hand to hand combat. The official announcement came with a trailer like for the Wizard class.

It might be just me but it’s the first time I’m disappointed by a Blizzard trailer… The flow is fine but for some reason the graphics look very old generation. The Wizard trailer was much much much better in my book.

In any case any Diablo III news is good news.

Dante’s Inferno New Trailer on GTTV

dantes-inferno-1For some reason my DVR didn’t record the last episode of GTTV so I had missed it until now. a real shame too because it’s feature was Dante’s Inferno, a game I wanted to get more info on and am now eagerly awaiting!

The game is being developed by Visceral Games, the guys who brought us Dead Space last year, so you can expect good things.
The game looks truly amazing and if you’re interested I suggest you check out the full GTTV episode. But just to wet you appetite I’m posting the new trailer which plain rocks!

Now go to Hell!

Necessary Force Could Be the New Max Payne

While Max Payne 3 is being developed we are, as best as I can put it, cautiously hopeful. The game looks very different and developed by a new company so there is worry. But we shall wait until we actually play the game to pass final judgment.

If all else fails there is one game that could carry the torch. Necessary Force looks to be this game. I just discovered the debut trailer and it looks very promising.
The setting is very noir, looks to be set in a New York type town, featuring a gritty detective and even the music sounds very similar. It looks great and I will keep an eye on this one.

The issue being that is is developed by Newcastle, a Midway UK branch, who may go under soon…. Let us pray people.

Seven Haunted Seas Trailer

The E3 mayhem is over so I can take a breather but that doesn’t mean that another sweet trailer didn’t just come to my attention.

Said trailer came out about a month ago but I only heard of the game while reading the latest issue of Play (Bayonetta cover) last night.
The game looks really interesting. The first thing you’ll notice is the art style which is gorgeous and obviously reminiscent of The Curse of Monkey Island but much darker.

The game will be an action RPG and you will travel the great sea to discover new islands but the developers have said they want this travel to be a very dangerous endeavor where you will have to face hard weather, sea monsters and more.
The team at Titmouse Games said the game was a mix between Fable and Wind Waker with a darker tone.

In any case I’m keeping an eye on this one because I love the art style and I love pirates and ocean exploration sounds great.

New Chronicles of Riddick Screens, Trailer and Details

assault_on_dark_athenaWhen Activision and Blizzard merged for a short period the remake of the highly acclaimed Riddick game, Escape from Butcher Bay, was left hanging but thankfully Atari came to the rescue Assault on Dark Athena and announced they would release the game which was “just about done”.

We now have a few more screens and a shiny new trailer to wet our appetites until March 2009. The Multiplayer mode is also getting details.
Aside from the classics Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Capture the Flag there are going to be two more modes.

  • Pitch Black: one player plays Riddick in a ‘pitch black’ room. He obviously has his night vision and the other players are armed to the teeth with a simple flashlight in order to kill him. The lucky one to kill the Furyan will in turn become Riddick and so on.
  • Butcher Bay Riot: involves three groups of four people. The inmates, guards and mercenaries who will all have to reach a generator. The mode will have a Counter Strike system which will allow you to buy weapons, ammo and more.

Be sure to check out the HD trailer here.

New BioWare Franchise Revealed!

With E3 2008 kicking up in full gear. BioWare released their new franchise, Dragon Age: Origins with a trailer that was released during GameTrailers TV on Spike TV.

All I can say is I wasn’t very impressed with the trailer. It is too short to show much so I will wait to see more.
Reminded me of the battle of Helm’s Deep for some reason.
