Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45 is a team-based multiplayer shooter set, as the name suggests, on the brutal eastern front of World War II, where the Russians and Germans fought a brutal war of attrition. While that setup probably sounds pretty familiar to those of us who’ve played games such as Battlefield 1942 or even Call of Duty, Red Orchestra manages to differentiate itself. The game offers a hardcore gameplay design that weeds out the arcade-shooter crowd with a meticulous attention to realism, albeit sometimes just for the sake of it.
Red Orchestra puts you on the eastern front of World War II, where the Germans and Russians fought many desperate and bloody battles.
The story begins with the player character Vito returning home on leave from World War II. Vito had joined the U.S. military as a way of avoiding jail time for a botched robbery. Vito reunites with his old friend, Joe Barbaro, and the two quickly embark upon a life of crime. Their criminal ascension starts with Mikey, a car mechanic who gets in a conflict with Joe. Mikey also needs a certain type of car to chop for parts, and will pay $400 for one that the police are not tailing. Soon enough, Vito, Joe, and Henry Tomasino (already a made man) find themselves battling with, for, against, and around three crime factions: the Falconi, Vinci and Clemente families. You will later on be introduced to Eddie Scarpa (a capo in one of the three crime families).
The storyline of Soul Blade is essentially an excuse for various showdowns over myriad backgrounds. Set in the 16th century, the title features warriors from various clans who are on a quest for the “Soul Edge,” a magical sword some believe holds ultimate combat power. The warriors include those looking to use it for good…and evil. The characters include Taki, a female hunter you wouldn’t want to tangle with; Cervantes, a wicked looking pirate (you gotta love a fighting game with a pirate); Sophita, an emotional goddess (Namco’s description – but how does one become an emotional goddess?); Voldo, hell guadian (we’ll just leave it at that); Rock (the token slow-moving, “no one uses him” character); and others. The game also features hidden fighters, multiple endings and numerous costumes for each character, and other hidden surprises that flesh out the game.
Our first look at Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 for the PS3. It is a more polished version of Ninja Gaiden 2 (like Ninja Gaiden’s Black and Sigma). In this game you can play as Ryu (as usual), Ayane (Returning from Sigma 1, also in DOA), and Momigi, who is from Ninja Gaiden on the DS. Definetly looks awesome, like most things Team Ninja dishs out. This is something i will definetly be following.
Thirteen years ago, Capcom helped revolutionize the action-adventure world with Resident Evil, a game that would define an entirely new genre dubbed “survival horror.”
Ten years after the destruction of Raccoon City, former S.T.A.R.S. Alpha team member Chris Redfield is an agent of the B.S.A.A. This paramilitary anti-bio-organic weapon organization travels the globe to seek out and destroy Umbrella’s creations, which have fallen into the hands of terrorists following the collapse of the multinational pharmaceutical company. When Chris gets a tip that a known weapons dealer will be making a big deal in the remote African nation of Kijuju, he heads there to put a stop to it and learn what he can about the mysterious doomsday project known only as Uroboros. Chris is joined by Sheva Alomar, a local B.S.A.A. agent, and together they battle wave after wave of infected villagers, horribly mutated monsters, and even series archnemesis Albert Wesker.

Mercenaries 2 trailer acquired at the Community Day at Pandemic Studios. Read up on the article onbeetstro.com
The game features three playable characters, all from the original game: Jennifer Mui, Mattias Nilsson and Chris Jacobs. All characters follow the same storyline that centers on the player’s character of choice.
You play as one of three mercenaries–all of whom have very similar storylines. The game follows your absurd quest for vengeance on a man who hired you to do a job and didn’t pay. Mercs 2’s story is bad (as is the voice acting), but it’s ultimately inconsequential and all of the cutscenes can safely be skipped. The first few missions are designed to get you accustomed to the game’s third-person-shooting action. In the span of 30 minutes you’ll shoot several different weapons, use grenades and C4, and drive cars, boats, and jeeps as you secure what will eventually become your home base. After that, the first few contracts you take on are fun, but that’s mostly because the gameplay mechanics are new and the thrill of destruction is still fresh.
The game focuses on the Allies’ invasion of German-occupied Normandy in 1944, specifically on close-quarters skirmishes between infantry and armor. Company of Heroes presents a number of novel twists to real-time strategy conventions, but at heart this game works like other RTS games do, by putting you in charge of base construction, resource gathering, and tactical command of various military forces in an effort to defeat the opposition. The game includes a good-sized single-player campaign spanning more than a dozen missions, in which Able Company lands on Omaha Beach on D-Day, liberates a number of key towns and strategic points, disrupts German supply lines and secret weapons, and finally helps crush the remnants of the Nazi war machine in France. It’s an exciting campaign, tied together with cutscenes and mission briefings coming from a variety of voices, which creates a few threads that help tie the missions together. In addition to the campaign, you can play skirmish matches with up to seven computer-controlled players on a series of different maps, and you can also jump online into the proprietary Relic Online service to challenge other players in ranked and unranked matches. The Relic Online service is a cut above most similar offerings, and lets you easily find a ranked match against players of similar skill or host a match with your own custom settings.
