NEC Memorabilia:Warriors Legends of Troy, Dead Space 2 & Medal of Honor

Written by Myles.

I had the chance to go to NEC Memorabilia in the weekend, needless to say it was an amazing experience. Of course, the whole expo wasn’t based around games, it was more based around films, TV Shows and wrestling, I had the chance to try out several new and or upcoming games.

First of all, the KOEI guys are simply amazing, one of the best companies and probably the only one where I’ve ever had the chance to meet and hang around with the employees for pretty much the whole day, I’m a massive Dynasty Warriors fan, It’s my life.

I'm coming for you Hector!

Warriors: Legends of Troy

Although I played an E3 Build, the graphics were pretty damn good, with amazing lighting effects and shadows, apparently the graphics are a lot better in the later builds, the gameplay is like if God of War and Fist of The North Star: Ken’s Rage had a baby, it stands on it’s own feet, it isn’t just another Dynasty Warriors game. I’m honestly incredibly looking forward to this game after playing the demo.

Dead Space 2

Although I played very little of it, it looks to be more of Dead Space 1 and possibly more scary than the original. The atmosphere is outstanding and the graphics  are top notch, it’s certainly shaping up to be one of the better looking games for 2011. If you loved the start of Dead Space you’ll definitely love 2!

Medal of Honor

It glitched out at the beginning, enough said.

Also on the Xbox 360 and PS3 online stores today is the Red Dead Redemption Undead Nightmare DLC – commonly known as the reason for ‘ZOMBIE COUGARS’ being a trending topic on Twitter.

“DICE & EA team up again” – you saw the headlines and read the articles on blogs and in magazines all over the globe that after the huge success of the Battlefield series, A star developer DICE and heavy hitting publisher EA would be working on a new title. A blast from the past, Medal of Honor, giving the franchise a reboot after its many years off the multi-million dollar FPS radar. Those of you who doubted the new game, shame on you! EA are currently holding a closed beta for the multiplayer version of the game (this mode is what DICE have been working on) and I can tell you that not only does it dismiss opinions that it’s a ‘cookie-cutter FPS clone’ it stands up to the high standards of Battlefield Bad Company 2 and Modern Warfare 2 before it.

Need For Speed Travels the US, Abandons Rest of the World

*vroom! vroom!*

Don’t hate on me for posting this, I love EA, despite my criticism of their ‘sequel cycle’ way of doing things, I’ll still remain a fan. As long as they release Mirror’s Edge 2, that is. My about page says that I get annoyed when the UK is the last to get things, specifically game releases but as long as we get them, I’m cool. Anyway, on to the point, EA love cars (well ,duh) and so when it comes to NFS they’re always going places to check out cars and watch cars race, listen to engines yadda, yadda but this time they’re bringing the cars (and the their game, Need For Speed Hot Pursuit) to us. Well more specifically, to you lucky folks in the US of A.

They Knocked Us Out of the World Cup, We Got An Awesome Consolation Prize – Crysis 2 Trailer

Crytek Logo

Aaah the Germans, with their Frankfurter sausages, Bratwurst and of course, their pesky English-World-Cup-dream-ending football team. Little known fact : despite the fact that this afternoon they completely and totally obliterated England’s chances at winning the World Cup, they are responsible for one of the coolest video game developers around at the moment, Crytek. Oh sure, you broke millions of English hearts today Germany, but I can forgive you a little when I know that your city of Frankfurt is home to Crytek’s Headquarters. Especially as I know that they’re the team behind the upcoming Crysis 2.

Is the German’s World Cup knock out a big thing to forgive? Yes, it is. But when they have a game as ridiculously good-looking as Crysis 2 in development, it makes the World Cup wounds heal a little bit faster.
