Prince of Persia
After taking nearly three years off from any home console (save for the Wii’s Rival Swords), Ubisoft is bringing back the renowned franchise and making a few cosmetic changes. Ubisoft has been tight lipped about the new Prince of Persia, but the few things we do know is that it’ll be running off of an enhanced version of the Assassins Creed engine, it will still have the platforming puzzle-solving gameplay style, and that combat is being tweaked to work specifically towards fighting fewer enemies at once. It’s also completely cell shaded as we saw from the trailer, and we expect it to be a very different take on what the series has been thus far.
Mercenaries 2: World in Flames
It’s a game that’s been publicly criticized by well known game enthusiasts Venezuela (yes, the whole country) who claimed that Mercenaries 2 was done by Pandemic studios in conjunction with the US government to support the American people to want to overthrow Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez. That’s a mouthful. We’ve heard very little about the game, but the story seems pretty simple: the Merc’s get a job, get screwed over, and it’s payback time. Sounds good to us, and with completely destructible environments (to the effect that starting fires on leaves in the jungle is possible), a barrage of weapons and vehicles, it looks like we’ll be blowing stuff up very soon.
It’s the mysterious things that intrigue us most. All we know about Mirror’s Edge is that it’s a first person action-adventure title where players have the ability to fly through the city on foot, jumping buildings. The short trailer and pictures we’ve seen look too good to be in-game, but with the current day hardware, maybe…without knowing more, we can’t say it’s good or bad. We can hope though, which is more than enough to get any gamer itching to see more.
