If your thumbs are twitching for some gamer action, there’s plenty here to keep your addiction satisfied. Or fuel it even further…
- Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier continues the much-loved gameplay of its forebears while offering fresh new challenges.Set in the near future (i.e. after Greece leave the Euro), warfare has become a delicate combination of negotiating table and covert action. A new soldier has been created: better than the best, and able to remain undetected on the battlefield.Yes, Deus Ex kind of did it already (and Metal Gear Solid before that), but this is Ghost Recon, so there’s lots of action to go with your stealth.
- Max Payne 3 is the much anticipated sequel of the sequel, and Mr. Payne isn’t doing too well.No longer a cop, and addicted to painkillers, Max takes a protection job in Sao Paulo, Brazil; but soon finds himself alone on the streets of an unfamiliar city, fighting for his life, and searching for answers.Plenty of amazing visuals and an in-depth story make this one game not to miss.
Role Playing Game
- Dragon’s Dogma has exhilarating action and the freedom to explore, and interact with, the world around you.And while this could easily have been just another RPG where you seek out and kill dragons, Dogma does it a little differently: your partners – or pawns, as they’re called in-game – fight independently, learning skills and abilities from you or your friends. And you can swap your pawn with a friend over Xbox Live or the PlayStation Network to gain experience.Expect lots of ye olde English, fireballs and sword fighting. Oh, and I continue to wait for a game that lets me be a dragon. (That isn’t Spyro, by the way. He’s just not scary enough.)
- LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes arrives on 22 June, and – just like the first game – your characters have different suits to put on, each of which grant different abilities. This time, though, you have all new characters to get to grips with, including a certain Man of Steel…Personally, I can’t wait to jump back into those little Lego boots and smack the Joker upside the head to collect some Lego studs.But then again, I don’t get out much.
And probably won’t, with this little lot to keep me busy. Until next time, happy gaming…
