57w ago - Following last week's leaks, today Electronic Arts has had no choice but to spill the beans and announce Crysis 3, revealing its 2013 release projection and limited edition plans.
To quote: Crysis 3 returns to New York, with Prophet returning to find the city trapped in a "Nanodome" by the Cell Corporation. It promises "seven distinct and treacherous environments" as the city becomes engulfed in natural flora, having turned into an "urban rainforest." This seems to confirm suggestions that the game would blend the jungle setting of the first game with the city environments of the second.
Gameplay has been described as "sandbox," so don't expect it to be as linear as the last one.
Pre-order bonuses have already been revealed, with select retailers offering various multiplayer packs, detailed below. Furthermore, the Crysis 3 Hunter Edition is available to pre-order now, and includes the "Hunter" Nanosuit module, a bonus XP boost for the multiplayer, three exclusive dog tags, and a unique skin for the debuting composite bow weapon.
Crysis 3 will be available in Spring of next year.
67w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has revealed a release date for Aliens: Colonial Marines alongside a chat with Randy Pitchford of the prometheus possibilities on PlayStation 3.
To quote: The Alien films have always held enormous power over me, occupying the same sphere of significance that Star Wars and The Lord of the Rings do for many others.
So it's been with great interest and no small amount of hope that I've watched the development saga of Aliens: Colonial Marines. This Gearbox Software-developed first-person shooter promises to pick up where James Cameron's 1986 classic Aliens left off - an irresistible premise for any diehard fan of the series.
A recent trailer (watch it below) presented a convincing succession of sound and images, yet carried the sadface news of a new fall 2012 release date. What's an impatient Alien fan to do?
Well, I went to Randy Pitchford to get some answers. The gregarious CEO of Gearbox Software was all too happy to share new insights into the studio's plans for Aliens: Colonial Marines, including multiplayer concepts, the control scheme, play style... and, perhaps most tantalizing, what he knows about the upcoming Ridley Scott-directed origin tale Prometheus....

148w ago - Today online retailer eStarland.com has revealed what is purported to be the Resistance 3 PS3 setting, sample boxart (below) and a release date of March 24, 2011.
While there is no official confirmation yet from Sony nor Insomniac Games beyond the previously reported developer profile and gameplay survey, the setting of Resistance 3 for PlayStation 3 appears to be in New York based on the boxart logo which matches the Resistance 3 billboard and product description, as follows:
"Continue the fight against the Chimera invasion in Resistance 3, as the battle moves to New York City and humanity makes its final stand."
To quote: "The billboard for Resistance 3 gives a vague clue on the plot of the game. For Resistance 3, the A in the billboard clearly illustrates the Statue of Liberty, indicating New York City will be the game's primary setting.
