Fallout 3 Broken Steel – New Screenshots

Fallout 3’s next DLC, “Broken Steel”, has been featured in some new pictures. This new DLC pack looks to be a must-have, and hopefully this wont be the last that we see of the DLC series of releases for Fallout 3.

“Broken Steel alters the ending of the original Fallout 3 to allow continued play after the end of the main quest line. This means that when it is time to go into the reactor at the end of Take it Back!, you can still go in yourself or you can send one of three side characters. However, even if you go yourself, you do not die. Instead, you survive the ordeal and wake up two weeks later at the Citadel. If you allow the Purifier to explode, the game will still end.”

Broken Steel hits PC and Xbox Live May 5th for $10, or 800 Microsoft Points.

Capcom, creator of Resident Evil and Street Fighter, will no doubt be at E3 2009, but what will they show?

Capcom’s own Geoff Hathaway has stated on his Twitter, “You think we have great titles now? Wait till we announce two more at E3.” So what can this mean to us? We have two new games to wait for at this coming Electronic Entertainment Expo.

VIA HipHopGamer’s Ankido Khoshaba:

Lost Planet 2
Dead Rising 2
Monster Hunter 3
Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth
Resident Evil: Dark Side Chronicles
Marvel vs. Capcom 2
MotoGP 2010 (Apparently it’s the mysterious Monumental Games project)

Releasing Soon:
Bionic Commando
Dark Void

But could any of these games below be the two new titles that are going to be announced at E3 2009?


Dino Crisis 4

Onimusha 5

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure HD Remix

Megaman Legends 3

Marvel vs. Capcom 3

I hope it’s a new Onimusha 5 and Dino Crisis 4.

Mass Effect iPhone: Jacob’s Story to be told

When Bioware, creators of Mass Effect and Star Wars RPG titles, released the original Mass Effect, everyone was taken back by the beauty and depth of the lengthy interactive-storyline RPG. Before the highly-anticipated sequel Mass Effect 2 is released, fans of the series may have another title to quench their gaming needs.

With the always increasing popularity of games and apps on Apples iPhone, more and more companies have decided to take part in creating games such as Konami, Electronic Arts, and Sega. Today, Bioware announced that a new game out of the Mass Effect series would be debuted on the iPhone.

This game, titled Mass Effect: Jacob’s Story, will no doubt feature and tell the story of Jacob Taylor, “a biotic-powered super-soldier who stumbles across a plot to terrorize civilization’s greatest beacon of hope.” The game will be top-down, such as Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, and will fit in as a 2-hour prequel of sorts to Mass Effect 2 for only $2.99.

A description of the game was released in an online survey by Electronic Arts:

The award-winning Mass Effect game universe has now arrived on your iPhone and iPod Touch! Tales of human courage and individual human achievement resound throughout the galaxy. Here is your opportunity to play the story of Jacob Taylor, a biotic-powered super-soldier who stumbles across a plot to terrorize civilization’s greatest beacon of hope. Can you prevent a heinous attack that threatens to knock humanity off the galactic stage?

* Gripping story line that enables you, playing super-soldier Jacob Taylor, to prevent galactic chaos

* Stylish art presentation delivers an animated graphic novel experience

* A blend of nuance story telling with gripping top-down shooter combat

* Experience the back story behind some of the main characters in the upcoming Mass Effect 2 (for Xbox 360 and PC)

* 2 hour story-based experience with stunning graphics, animated presentation and top-down arcade-style combat

Multiplayer Beta detailed for Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

Looking for a way to get into the multiplayer beta for Uncharted 2? Well heres you chance… Purchase one of the first copies of inFamous, Sucker Punch’s new open-world action adventure, and receive a code for access into the Uncharted 2 Multiplayer Beta.

PLAYSTATION(R)3 Computer Entertainment System Exclusive UNCHARTED 2: Among
Thieves(TM) Expands Gameplay by Introducing Online Multiplayer Features to Franchise

Featuring Five-Versus-Five Player Matches Competitively, and Up To Three Player
Cooperative Modes; Franchise Adds Hours of Replayability

SANTA MONICA, Calif., April 27 /PRNewswire/ — Sony Computer Entertainment America
today announced that UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves, exclusively for the
PLAYSTATION®3 (PS3™) system, will introduce online competitive and
cooperative multiplayer modes to the franchise. Developed by premier PS3 software
developer Naughty Dog Inc., UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves, the highly-anticipated
follow up to UNCHARTED: Drake’s Fortune™, will feature up to 10 players
in 5-versus-5 competitive gameplay. Cooperative multiplayer modes allow up-to-3
players to progress through a variety of environments by working together to
accomplish set objectives. Utilizing a robust party system, groups of players will
remain together in ranked and custom matches while earning currency, which used in
combination with currency earned in single player missions, will unlock additional
content and upgrades.

Presented with multiple modes of competitive gameplay, players battle in ranked
matches that include Death Match and Plunder, a unique style of multiplayer
competition that encourages team work to transport a treasure over dynamic terrain
such as ledges and obstacles. Plunder brings truly vertical game play to traditional
multiplayer modes. With maps based on environments from the single player campaign,
players are taken from the nighttime streets of a war torn city to a Nepalese
village and have the ability to create custom games allowing them to play any type
of game on any map.

“Adding a multiplayer aspect to the UNCHARTED franchise is a significant step
in the replayability of the game,” said Christophe Balestra, co president
Naughty Dog. “UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves will be the most impressive and
ambitious game that Naughty Dog has done and we are thrilled to let our fans
experience it this fall.”

SCEA is planning a consumer BETA program for UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves beginning
June 3 through June 28. Consumers who purchase one of the first copies of inFAMOUS,
the open world superhero action adventure from Sucker Punch Productions launching
May 26, have the opportunity to be among the first to test the multiplayer modes of
UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves via an access key packed in the box.

UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves is the story of Nathan Drake, a fortune-hunter with a
shady reputation and an even shadier past who is lured back into the treacherous
world of thieves and mercenary treasure-seekers. The tenth game by premier PS3
software developer Naughty Dog, UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves allows players to take
control of Drake and embark on a journey that will push him to his physical,
emotional and intellectual limits to discover the real truth behind the lost fleet
of Marco Polo and the legendary Himalayan valley of Shambhala.

First round of DLC announced for Killzone 2

During a recent episode of GameTrailers TV, Managing Director of Guerrilla Games, Herman Hulst, announced that a map pack would soon be available as downloadable content for his most recent game Killzone 2.

Named the Steel @ Titanium pack, the realm of Killzone 2 multiplayer is taken back to where the fans of its single player mode enjoyed the most.

“Set on-board of two of the largest vehicles in the Killzone universe, there is the ISA flagship tech cruiser and a pair of two high-speed Helghast freight trains.”

Fighting inside the ISA tech cruiser, the gameplay is changed to a more vertical aspect. The cruiser features multiple decks, so the player can be shot at from above or down below, making finding good cover and maintaining the spot a challenge.

On the steel map in the pack, players start at the beginning of one train and fight to the end of the other train,while being able to hop from one train to another. However, caution is needed while jumping across due to the harsh environment in between the two trains, which can smash the player off of the trains, sending him or her to an painful but quick death.

Players can expect the pack by the end of April.

Guerrilla is indeed working on the next pack after their first releases, the word to keep a look out for is “Retro.”
