Now, I had quite the bad experience with Operation Flashpoints previous adventure ‘Dragon Rising’ but the thing that got to me the most was that I really did want to get on with the game. It had a set-up to be a great tactical and most importantly co-op shooter, but it just failed to deliver to me in a lot of ways. So when Red River was announced I kept my ears and my heart open for Flashpoints second chance to win me over.

Like Dragon Rising, Red River is a brutal kick to the teeth to anyone who considers themselves as a hardcore FPS player. In some cases, you may actually be a hardcore FPS player who may find this statement moot. But Operation Flashpoint has been known to bring even the biggest players to tears. Its constant large scale combat mixed with realistic weapon accuracy and even more realistic damage hit points gives a more heavier approach to what most gamers may have expected to be yet another gun-ho approach to war. You’ll definitely feel the pressure when enemies are flowing over the hills and you’re blindly shooting whilst trying to not only save your own ass, but three other soldiers part of your fire team. Red River, whilst a little bit easier than Dragon Rising, still gives you quite a hard time and wont feel bad about bullying you, stealing your lunch money and fornicating with your mother after either.

Deus Ex, recently branded as one of the best games on PC has finally come to the console world in the form of a prequel. Human Revolution brings a whole new way to take on an action adventure, so…Viva la revolution?

Following a brutal attack on a corporation that deals with the creation of body augmentations for the military and public, Adam Jensen, the head of security, is left for dead amidst the attack. In a desperate attempt to rescue him, the company rebuild him using the same augmentations they sell. Transforming him into the real million dollar man. Only the whole world isn’t exactly hung up on the idea…along with Adam.

If you own a PS3 and have something of a thing for Role Playing Games then you might have heard of a game called Demon Souls. A Playstation 3 exclusive, Demon Souls brought pain and misery to all who dared play it. Only the seriously hardcore RPG..ers need apply.

I however, am not a hardcore RPG player. I do fancy them from time to time though, I’m pretty sure everyone does. So when the spiritual sequel to Demon Souls, Dark Souls came out for both platforms, I was interested to say the least.

2011 has been a crazy year for video games. There’s been so many, it’s been almost impossible to keep track and November seems to only bring the accumulative force of all the biggest franchises releasing all at once. 2011 was also a showcase for a lot of new shooters. Crysis 2, Brink and Bulletstorm were main contenders of this year to possibly steal attention from the popular ‘you know who’ franchise, and the final addition to this collection of titles was Bodycount.

Eurogamer ’11 – Battlefield 3

A floor stealer for me this year was definitely Battlefield 3, partly because I enjoyed it a lot, and partly because they had a ton of the consoles running it. It literally stole the floor. Alongside Modern Warfare 3. These two games generated an insane amount of activity and the queues for both were incredibly long. The only other game generating THAT much attention would have been Skyrim.

Available at the show was both single player and the multiplayer. The single player was a short excerpt from level Operation Guillotine, a night time level set on storming a city complex. The level didn’t show off a great deal of what we can expect and even though the TV’s settings were ridiculously dark, it still boasted some incredibly good graphics for some vibrant and effective firefights. The city area didn’t show off the games immersive sound all that well, but with all the background noise of the show, it was sometimes hard to tell.

You can’t have Battlefield 3 without MW3, the main contender. Not even a contender in some MW fans eyes. Alas, available at Eurogamer was the survival game mode of Spec Ops. Based on a more wave style of game play, Infinity Wards Spec Ops pits two players against wave of soldiers, dogs, juggernauts and light aircraft in some intense firefights on maps found in the game. The map Paris was filled with tight roads and winding back alleys perfect for bottlenecking large groups of enemies.

It’s hard to say it, but Need For Speed is almost as bad as Fifa games these days, before ones come out, there’s another one in the pipeline. Hot Pursuit hadn’t been out a week before Shift 2 was announced and the same happened for Shift 2 with the announcement of The Run. Annoyingly though. The Run is kind of fun.

Well at least the demo was. It’s no big news that NFS games have been looking great, especially after Criterions attempt with their fantastic looking addition, Hot Pursuit. So The Run takes the HP engine right off the bat. The game plays, looks and just feels a lot like Hot Pursuit did. That’s no bad thing remember.

With Final Fantasy 14 well on its way, its time to have a quick look at the JRPG of 2010 that has been rocking fans since the beginning of the year. Final Fantasy XIII.

Back in the day, I loved Final Fantasy 7, but I always used to think ‘damn, this game would be so much easier to play if I didn’t have to read all the dialogue’ Here, Final Fantasy 13 has full dialogue sequences, but they’re not exactly well written. 70% of the dialogue in the scenes are actually just your typical anime gasps or usually with females, rather orgasmic noises. Or then there’s the other noise people make, rather than saying ‘yes, your right there Terrance’, or ‘no I don’t think we should do that’ half of it is replaced with ‘Ugh’s or. ‘Mmm!’ this is a little troubling, especially since the dialogue is pretty much 100% of the storytelling, so a lot of the time, its pretty awkward to follow, and following the story is far from being easy.

Its as if the writer had already set the scene in about three previous books, so when characters start talking about the fal’ce the l’cie and this and that, its almost like we are expected to know what the hell they are on about from the get go. If you really care enough for the FF13 story, there’s an encyclopedia which is updated after ever cut scene so you can look up all the crap they talked about and might be in with a chance of understanding what on earth is happening.
