Breaking News: Ganon Will Not Be In Skyward Sword

. . .BREAKING NEWS. . .
 

With the new Skyward Sword trailer that was showcased a few days ago at Comic-Con 2011 came the unveiling of a new villain for what is, or should be, the most beloved franchise in gaming history. According to the original story on IGN, the Zelda producers have stated that Ganon will not appear in the upcoming Wii game this holiday season.

Just above Skyrim, Skyward Sword is my most anticipated game by a long shot. Given the title of our blog, i’m sure that I speak for the others here when say I that this news is relatively massive.. As it likely is for any Zelda fan, being that Ganon has obviously appeared in everything that has had anything to do with Zelda since day one. I shouldn’t have to tell anyone this shit.

His name is Lord Ghirahim.

He's being called a David Bowie look-alike. I'd call him Cindy Lauper

 

Also, expect a lot more aspects of familiarity in the Zelda universe to be shaken-up.

Pretty interesting stuff.

 

Prototype 2 “Homecoming” Trailer

 

Courtesy of Gametrailers.com, we now have a new trailer for Prototype 2.  I didn’t play a whole hell of a lot of the original, but I really feel interested to play this one for some reason.  I think it’s pretty badass that you’re antagonist is the protagonist from the first game… dammit, so I AM gonna have to go play through it before I play this…

Yet another game I don’t have time for!

If you havent seen the original trailer for this game yet though, you can check it out here

Goldeneye 007: Reloaded Reveal

 

Remember Just yesterday when I posted leaked photos for the possible New 007 game? well turns out I shouldve just waited!

Goldeneye 007: Reloaded is going to be a re imagining or a re imagining.  Goldeneye from the N64 was recreated and released on the Wii.  With Activision clearly not pleased with the general reception of the game, they did what should have happened in the first place – release the damned game on all consoles!

Itll never live up to the hype of the N64 version, but if you’ve been following this game, it’s not trying to.  This is inspired, not upgraded, so keep that in mind!

GoldenEye Reloaded Screens leaked

So Comic-Con is right around the corner, and news of a new James Bond game from Activision has been floating around for a little while now.  Exactly what that game will be is technically still up in the air, but with the leak of all these juicy photos of what appears to be an HD remake of GoldenEye for the Wii… we can be pretty sure that those fat cats at Activision are really planning on announcing GoldenEye Reloaded.

NHL 12 Coming September 13

Stammer!

 

EA Sports’ latest trailer for NHL 12  (featuring Steven Stamkos on the cover) doesn’t exactly have me drooling, but they never have in the past. Still, somehow they always end up being worth the yearly $70.00 that they mug my ass for.

It’s an annual tradition of mine (fully hockey obsessed) to go out and buy the latest NHL game, whether the newly added features seem to be “worthy” or not. It always seems like they’re adding things that should already exist. For example, this year there will, yet again, be a fully new physics engine and everything in the rink will be live, which is to say that anything that gets hit or ran into is effected; including the goalies. Glass smashes, helmets and masks fly off, net comes off moorings, players can be hurled into benches and goalies can fight.

Like any decent game developer, they listened to their fans for suggestions again this year. It’s just too bad that the best the fans could come up with was an inclusion of the Winter Classic, where you play in PA as the Pens or Caps and “battle harsh weather conditions.” Ooooo. However, in the reveal trailer, EA does mention an upcoming “Huge Announcement” that will be revealed on their twitter/facebook. Surfing the boards only brings rumors. Everything from new  in-depth League or GM type modes to “monkeys” (?) and “better servers”, as one kid jokingly (or not jokingly) put it.

I play it often enough for it to be worth the money and i’m always interested in the new, up-to-date rosters, goalie equipment, team jerseys, and especially this year’s addition of the WINNIPEG JETS. The fuckin’ Jets, boys! I’m extremely jacked about that.

Enough yapping. Basically, i’m twinkling on my fuckin’ tippy-toes for this one. It will be released in North America on September 13th.

The reveal trailer:

Batman: Arkham City, The Riddler Trailer

We’ve been getting a lot more infortmation quicker than I thought we would about this gem of a game.

We’ve seen Two-Face and Catwoman, Hugo Strange, new henchmen for every villain, and a nice looking Harley Quinn.  We’ve also heard that Robin is going to be a playable character.

Whats new to us is this brand spankin new trailer highlighting the Riddlers involvement.  Well, maybe its more about lowlighting… cause it moreso just hints at what to expect.

Mass Effect 3 to Have Unprecedented Epicness

Among others the Mass Effect franchise is a personal favorite of mine and it goes without saying that I am damn near dying for the release of Mass Effect 3 for the Xbox 360. Its a new galactic war! ME3 promises to be even more enormous in scale and judging by the sneak peaks at this years E3 it looks to be more action-oriented than the previous two installments. The game is also going to be Kinect-supported. You will be able to physically say which line of conversation you want to say and command your team with impressive looking voice-recognition.
