I think now the time has come when we can start discuessing games coming in 2009. Same as the prequel thread Games 2008 (http://www.thinkdigit.com/forum/showthread.php?t=78201) was meant for.............

Listing is in no particular order, or importance......

1. THEY

Release Date : TBA 2009

Genre : FPS (sci-fi/Horror)

Platform : PC, PS3, 360

Discription ::

They is set in London four years in the future, the city ravaged by numerous terrorist attacks. Just as it looks like things can't get any worse, alien robots invade and kick up the mother of all ruckuses. Initially, it looks like the robots are the main threat. However, as you uncover more on these bizarre androids, it transpires they're actually being manipulated by the ethereal and mysterious Phantoms.
To combat this invasion, you're going to need one hell of a set of weapons. Rather than unlocking new guns as you progress from level to level, your weapons can be upgraded and changed through items you buy or find in the stages. You can customize guns to your hearts content -- it's possible to create a sniper rifle that fires grenades or even a pistol that freezes enemies. Customization can be taken even further, tuning the rate of fire, the spread of 'bullets' or, perhaps, the amount of ammo each weapon carries.

General Features

unique weapon system that makes you „love“ your weapons
upgradable weapon system (just like you upgrade n enhance your car in NFS ::MW)
mysterious science fiction background story
diversified enemies - thrilling and intelligent
heroes to identify with
heavy usage of physics
destructible environment relevant for gameplay

Call of Duty: World at War throws out the rulebook of war to transform WWII combat through a new enemy, new tactics and an uncensored experience of the climatic battles that gripped a generation. As U.S. Marines and Russian soldiers, players will employ new features like cooperative gameplay, and weapons such as the flamethrower in the most chaotic and cinematically intense experience to date.


General Features


Call of Duty 4 Technology – Built using the Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare engine, Call of Duty: World at War utilizes a bedrock of technology that delivers jaw-dropping visuals, while empowering players to employ elements like fire to affect the dynamics of the battlefield. Players that attempt to harness the power of new weapons, like the flamethrower, will find themselves capable of burning away environmental elements that give cover to a camouflaged enemy, leaving a charred battlefield – and their foes – in their wake
Coordinated Assault and Support – For the first time in the franchise, Call of Duty: World at War introduces co-op, bringing fresh meaning to the No One Fights Alone mantra. Call of Duty: World at War co-op features up to four-players online, or two-player local split-screen, allowing gamers to experience harrowing single-player missions together for greater camaraderie and tactical execution. The title also incorporates traditional multiplayer components such as challenges, rankings and online stats into the co-op campaign for deeper re-playability and advanced gameplay
New Theaters of Operation – Players fight as U.S. Marines and Russian soldiers facing enemies – some new to the Call of Duty franchise – that employ lethal new tactics and know no fear, no mercy, nor the rules of war. Epic conflicts are fought on multiple fronts, playing through the climactic battles of WWII in the grittiest, most chaotic and cinematically intense experience to date
Innovative Multiplayer – Multiplayer builds from the success of Call of Duty delivering a persistent online experience for more squad based interaction. New development with party systems allows an intimacy with squad based combat never before seen in Call of Duty. Combined infantry and vehicle missions add a new dimension to the online warfare and offers more PERK abilities

6. F.E.A.R II :: aka : Project Origin

Developer : Monolith

Release Date : Feb 2009

Genre : FPS (Action/Horror)

Platform : PC, xbox 360, PS3

Discription ::

Another most anticipate game of 2009 (and also my more fav). Original creators of paranormal shooter regain rights to franchise's name in wake of Activision Blizzard fire sale. Project Origin is now FEAR 2 : Project Origin.

The second heart-stopping shooter by Monolith (after F.E.A.R.) continues the spine-tingling supernatural suspense story of an escalating paranormal crisis that threatens to destroy a major American city. At the center of the calamity is the mysterious Alma, whose rage against those who wronged her triggered a chain of events that has spiraled completely out of control. Now that she has been loosed upon the world, the consequences will be unimaginable.

Playing the game you can see how Project Origin's open outdoor environments are set to change the dynamic of the combat. Many of you will remember that the original F.E.A.R. had its fair share of scary moments, and while they still occur in Project Origin, the urban environments have been incorporated to allow for a distinct change of action. The gunplay is frantic and violent, while the enemy AI looks like it has learnt even more about using flanking techniques, as well as taking cover. Enemies open car doors to use as cover, but thankfully you can use a sniper rifle to shoot off extremities that peek out around the edges. If you shoot a soldier in the leg, then he'll hobble over to stronger cover, or you can be safe and use a rocket launcher to blow the entire car up.

6. Left 4 Dead

Developer : Valve

Release Date : Nov 2008

Genre : TPS (Action/Horror)

Platform : PC, xbox 360

Discription ::

Setting out to do for co-op gaming what Counter-Strike did for team combat, Left 4 Dead is an ambitious survival horror game. Running on the Source engine, Left 4 Dead leaves four armed survivors of a world overrun with zombies, and they must fight their way out to escape the outbreak.
Designed for co-op play, the four players must work together to finish each stage of the game, lending each other artillery support, sharing ammo and rescuing each other when zombies are on top of them. In addition to the standard four players as humans, another four players can be amongst the masses of assaulting zombies, seeking to take down the other players. Zombie players might even find themselves become one of the four mutant "boss" zombies, who have unique powers that can be used to devastate, injure, tie up, mark and track, confuse, or even humiliate the gun-toting human survivors.

Yea even I was about to point to ajatbc to keep the games to be disuessed under 2008 to be as minimum as possible. But its ok I think we can have few most noticible games discuessed for the last Q of 2008 as well.


Alan Wake looks frikkin aweome!Can't wait for it any longer.Have been waiting for quite long.Is there any game like Indigo Prephecy a.k.a Farhenheit,that game was among the best horror thrillers.Alone in the dark?

Yep Alan Wake does look pretty good, but strange may it seems dispite to be in developement for a long time, its so little which has been disclosed about the game. Except a brief discription I can not find anything that explicitely explain the story line. And all videos are just trailers no actual game play disclosed yet.........

mmmm I think the developers want to keep it a complete mystry, to give the users a good surprise when it finally comes out.

BTW got the game BIA:Hells Highway. Would give it a try today or tommorrow and would share my experience......

OK guys played BIA :: Hells Highway.......... I have played around 4,5 rounds. I mean there r no rounds as such. I played around 5,6 hrs and so I am not exactly sure where I am. First impression.....game is not that easy. I am playing on the second level diff out of three and I can feel that you have to work hard to work your way out. I am not sure why few of the people out here did not like the game at all, but for me it was absolutely playable. The cover system is welcome for me as it is same as vegas ( but definately NOT as responsive as vegas). Enemy AI if you ask me is good. I mean atleast the soldiers just dont stand in front and fire. The cover they take and the run they make for the same in case its blown (like a wooden fence) is really something. I noticed the enemy soldiers were almost always running or were in the act of doing something franticly in order to flank us. I really had to work my way out in order to overpower them. This is what made the game bit different for me and I enjoyed it. It should not be always liner. In BIA the best thing was soldiers almost always tried to cover you from all directions. During a uausl battle, side by side quite a few of them would just keep moving and running and try to flank you from behind as well.......cool if you ask me.
Gamplay was good. Controlls were bulky and there was less flexibility. The grenade throwing system was abolutely crap and crippled, I really had to work to get the grenade thrown at my desired location and that does not always work good when you are in the middle of a heavy battle. Graphic Quality is definately not in the lines of todays gen games but as a stand alone they are engrossing enough not to let you too down.

Guys I think people who love world war fps/tps should definately give this game a second try.... Its not that bad as it might seems to be.....

Become the leader of a gang of renegades as they rob and steal their way through San Francisco in 1969.

Release Date : Q1 2009
PC, PS3, XBOX360

Heist allows gamers to become the leader of a group of renegade criminals as they rob and steal their way throughout San Francisco. In addition to robbing banks, players are motivated to pull off other jobs, including knocking off bars, restaurants, strip clubs, armored cars, and more in order to acquire bigger and better tools needed to penetrate increasingly more difficult banks. The goal? To one day be able to pull off the biggest heist of all: robbing the San Francisco Mint.

ok Guys played BIA:HH even further and I tell you game is very much playable, its not the usual bang bang move ahead then bang bang and move ahead game........... its heavily dependent on how you flank the enemy, almost always I had to find absolutely different alternate route to move ahead. The usual obvious route would never work in this game. AI is absolutely acceptable atleast for the enemy, Our own squad AI is not that good. You have to suppress the enemy before you move your squad, otherwise they would defenately be killed. This is ok when you are batteling from a distance, but some times our squad come absolutely face to face with the enemy, and then they act dumb coz I had not supressed the enemy first before making my squad face them.....this looks absolutely stupid........
other thing are the controlls they are not responsive enough I mean the flow of controlls should be abolutely smooth while changing keys, like in vegas....controlling the game was a pleasure....not in BIA....

On the whole absolutely playable and engrossing game if you like to move slow and steadily

MOHA was more of bang bang move ahead kinda game, not that I am saying I did not enjoy it, MOHA was the first WW FPS I played so definately I was blown out if it, but after that COD 2 was the only WW FPS that actually thrilled me, (keeping COD 4 out as its not a WW game and anyhow that game is on a different level all together.) BIA both the previous series, battlefield 1,2 and all there games though I played but did not provide me the much needed excitement. BIA yes I agree the enemy almost aleways keep running (but they do settle down after some time) here and there but that was something which actually made me difficult to shoot them down, neeway different perspective to look at. For me enemy AI was atleast acceptable.


Anybody played Battlefield:Bad Company I missed to try out that game........

9. ShellShock 2 :: Blood Trails

Release Date : DEC 2008

Genre : FPS

Platform : PC, PS3, 360

Discription ::

War is hell, and the ShellShock franchise delivers gamers to the deepest circles of this hell with the series' second brutal and twisted psychological first person shooter experience.

At the height of the Vietnam War, a covert ops cargo plane carrying a top-secret consignment known only as 'Whiteknight' is lost over the deepest, uncharted jungles. Special Ops soldiers are immediately dispatched to the scene to retrieve the top secret shipment and one-by-one they disappear without a trace ... until one month later, one of them suddenly walks out of the jungle. Crazed and deranged, something in the jungle had ripped out his humanity, poisoning his soul. Something in the darkness had driven him mad ... and followed him out. Taking the first-person war game and turning it on its head, Shellshock 2: Blood Trails places you in a war where fear takes on a whole new meaning.

10. Theseis

Release Date : Q1 2009

Genre : TPS (Adventure)

Platform : PC, 360

Discription ::

Andonicos Kalogerou is a man devoted to science and the war against superstition. From his office in the historic centre of Athens, he has worked diligently for more than 5 years, travelling all over Greece and revealing the paranormal for what it truly is: drunken fantasies and uneducated hysteria. But his intelligible, safe little world is going to come crushing down when a call from Pheve, his adopted sister and fervent advocate of the mythic, informs him that his step-father is not only missing, but presumed dead as well. With a heavy heart, Andronicos travels to the place of his childhood, high atop the Greek mountains, to bury an empty coffin and reunite with his quarrelsome step-sister. Little does he know that each step irrevocably brings him and Pheve closer to what Destiny has in store for them. For the death of their stepfather heralds the beginning of the greatest struggle between good and evil with the prize being nothing less than the very future of this world.

11. CHROME 2

Release Date : TBA 2009

Genre : FPS (Action/Sci-Fi)

Platform : Current information is only for PC

Discription ::

2003's Chrome was a futuristic first-person shooter starring a character with the best hero name in human history, Bolt Logan. Logan adventured as a mercenary in a universe where corporations vied for control of an element known only as "chrome." Developer Techland's follow-up, Chrome 2, seems to be heading in a slightly different direction with its mythos. While Chrome 2 still takes place in a similarly futuristic era, you don't play as Logan again. Rather, you're a solider in the military of the future--but not just any soldier. See, in this era, the dead aren't necessarily dead. When you die, a procedure can be performed to take your consciousness and transfer it into a new body. Sound familiar? Maybe that's because it's basically the plot to the 1992 sci-fi campfest Freejack, although here, you don't get to play as Emilio Estevez, and Mick Jagger isn't trying to kill you. Here, once the procedure is done to you, you're forced to pay off the cost with five years of military service. And if the demo of the game we saw at E3 2006 is any indication, perhaps death might be a more reasonable proposition, given what you'll be in for.

The core gameplay concept behind Chrome 2 (apart from the fact that it is a first-person shooter, first and foremost) is that your soldier can upgrade his body in a whole host of ways. The game aims to include around 200 types of weapons, but even outside of standard upgrades, you'll actually be able to straight-up steal other people's bodies when required. One scenario we saw during our demo was a situation where a specific NPC had access to something we needed. After blasting our way through a group of other enemies in an archetypal first-person-shooter scenario, we happened upon the target NPC. After hitting him with a stunning weapon of some kind, we were then able to walk up to him and transfer ourselves into his body. Doing this gave us access to everything of his, including his weapons and abilities.

Ok Guys FarCry 2 has been released........ and first score Gamespot gives 8.5,
IGN 8.9 and GT.com 8.7

Not bad if you ask me...... following are the few points I bring from the review...

Far Cry 2's first-person action squeezes every last drop of potential out of the unique African setting, Although you can't say the same for the plot.
Incredible amount of freedom to approach each mission 50 square kilometers of visually stunning African landscape Hefty single-player campaign should take at least 30 hours Diverse reward and upgrade systems feed off each other very well Robust map editor on all three versions.


The game also doesn't give players a pre-determined protagonist. Instead, you select a character to play as, and the rest of the cast appear in the game world around you as friendly NPCs, called buddies, who you can choose to work with. Things begin with a simple tutorial section, introducing you to basic first-person shooter controls and the game's premise. Your main goal is to find The Jackal, a menacing character that supplies weapons to the APR and UFLL to keep lit the fires of conflict.

Visually, Far Cry 2 is a stunner. Though not as technically amazing as the jungles of Crysis, Far Cry 2's depiction of the sprawling African wilderness makes up for it with environmental diversity and intimidating scale. Several landscapes are represented here: dense forests, rolling plains, arid deserts, craggy badlands, and even shantytowns and hut villages. You'll see trees swaying, the charred remains of a brush fire, and several forms of wildlife running around. It all looks incredible in the transitional period of the day-night cycle when the sun is falling or rising through the horizon and everything is cast in a warm glow. The game also sounds great, with tribal music accompanying you at all times, from a relaxing ambience in calm situations to a rapidly escalating roar of drums in battle. The voice acting during mission briefings feels strangely hurried (as if it's some trick to squeeze more dialogue onto the disc), but that's largely offset by excellent enemy banter during combat.



Lest have a looks at some of the game awsome wepone system.....

Primary Weapons

Like any modern shooter, Far Cry 2 provides players with several weapons categories to choose from primary, secondary, special, and mounted weapons. Of the primary class users will have everything from semi-automatic rifles to grenade launchers to sniper rifles. We were able to establish many of the primary weapons players will be able to buy or pick up throughout the game. Please note that this list is not comprehensive and that new guns may be present in the game. Also, the specs provided are based on the in-game guns' real-life counterparts.

Care to share some experts......

BTW DEAD SPACE is also released.....

Gamespot 8.7

IGN 8.5

GT.com 8.8

Just few lines from Gamespot......

Dead Space's approach to gameplay should be familiar to veteran players of third-person action games. You'll run around, explore, solve puzzles, and strategically dismember the creatures you come across. Yep, strategically. Although the enemies you face do seem space zombies of some sort, shooting them in the head just doesn't get you very far. You'll have to take out the arms, legs, and other important appendages before finally taking your enemies down for good. You'll have plenty of options for how to do this as you explore the game and buy yourself more weapons. Yes, in the future, there are vending machine-style shops that sell you stuff. You'll start out with a simple cutter but find tons more if you've got the cash. You'll also be able to upgrade your suit, which is basically the only thing that stands between you and horrible death.

The visuals in the game continue to impress us with their creepy lighting and high level of detail. The opening cinematic, made using the game engine, shows off the impressive visuals, giving you a good look at the scope and size of the Ishimura. The massive ship is a creepy place chock full of disturbing visuals. If you set aside the abominations that are roaming the hall, the ship itself goes from being a shiny pinnacle of technology to a disturbing labyrinth in which you don't want to be alone. You'll see blood, viscera, and plenty of signs that things have gone really wrong. To add to the creepiness, you'll be able to interact with the debris and corpses to varying degrees, such as stomping boxes or shuffling around the remains of defeated enemies

Ok Guys FarCry 2 has been released........ and first score Gamespot gives 8.5,
IGN 8.9 and GT.com 8.7

Not bad if you ask me...... following are the few points I bring from the review...

Far Cry 2's first-person action squeezes every last drop of potential out of the unique African setting, Although you can't say the same for the plot.
Incredible amount of freedom to approach each mission 50 square kilometers of visually stunning African landscape Hefty single-player campaign should take at least 30 hours Diverse reward and upgrade systems feed off each other very well Robust map editor on all three versions.


The game also doesn't give players a pre-determined protagonist. Instead, you select a character to play as, and the rest of the cast appear in the game world around you as friendly NPCs, called buddies, who you can choose to work with. Things begin with a simple tutorial section, introducing you to basic first-person shooter controls and the game's premise. Your main goal is to find The Jackal, a menacing character that supplies weapons to the APR and UFLL to keep lit the fires of conflict.

Visually, Far Cry 2 is a stunner. Though not as technically amazing as the jungles of Crysis, Far Cry 2's depiction of the sprawling African wilderness makes up for it with environmental diversity and intimidating scale. Several landscapes are represented here: dense forests, rolling plains, arid deserts, craggy badlands, and even shantytowns and hut villages. You'll see trees swaying, the charred remains of a brush fire, and several forms of wildlife running around. It all looks incredible in the transitional period of the day-night cycle when the sun is falling or rising through the horizon and everything is cast in a warm glow. The game also sounds great, with tribal music accompanying you at all times, from a relaxing ambience in calm situations to a rapidly escalating roar of drums in battle. The voice acting during mission briefings feels strangely hurried (as if it's some trick to squeeze more dialogue onto the disc), but that's largely offset by excellent enemy banter during combat.



Lest have a looks at some of the game awsome wepone system.....

Primary Weapons

Like any modern shooter, Far Cry 2 provides players with several weapons categories to choose from primary, secondary, special, and mounted weapons. Of the primary class users will have everything from semi-automatic rifles to grenade launchers to sniper rifles. We were able to establish many of the primary weapons players will be able to buy or pick up throughout the game. Please note that this list is not comprehensive and that new guns may be present in the game. Also, the specs provided are based on the in-game guns' real-life counterparts.

Codemasters FUEL™

4 years in development:o

Set to revolutionise multi-terrain racing with the largest environment ever created in race gaming, FUEL will present players with an astonishing no-boundaries playfield that's over 5,000 square miles (14,000+ km²) in size( :o:o). Creating the ultimate competitive go-anywhere racing experience, FUEL will have players competing across wildly different terrain and executing spectacular death-defying stunts as they race dozens of varied two and four-wheeled rides and explore this epic world on an unprecedented scale.

http://img525.imageshack.us/img525/3209/fuel953screenvl0.jpg (http://imageshack.us)
http://img525.imageshack.us/img525/fuel953screenvl0.jpg/1/w470.png (http://g.imageshack.us/img525/fuel953screenvl0.jpg/1/)

FUEL is set in an alternate present in which whole swathes of the globe have been ravaged by the effects of climate change brought on by decades of environmental abuse. Here oil prices have rocketed and yet a new breed of racing junkie takes to the wastelands, pitting their grungy home-tuned vehicles against each other in an all-new extreme sport as they compete to win fuel supplies. To triumph means travelling the wastelands to challenge the best; from the tsunami-wrecked pacific coast through the Nevada wastelands, including the Grand Canyon, up treacherous snow-capped mountains, thick forests, arid deserts, abandoned lakeside resorts and much more.

Bringing this vast, open ended landscape to life is a dynamic weather system with full day and night transitions (:o:o:o), brilliant sunshine, torrential rain and everything in between, plus destructive tornados, sandstorms, thunderstorms, lightning strikes, and blizzards requiring mid-race strategy changes. Complete with the ability to go online to explore this massive world and compete in hundreds of multiplayer challenges.

This is Vegas

Release: Q4 2008
This is Vegas is an upcoming video game being developed by The Suffering and Drakan developers Surreal Software and published by Midway Games.

Plot
When a powerful businessman begins turning Las Vegas into a family-friendly tourist trap, you must start your own powerful empire and resurrect the famous adult playground. Party hard at the hottest clubs to make VIP connections. Grow your bankroll by hitting high stakes tables. Race the fastest cars on the underground circuit to raise your reputation. Fight off enemies with fists and firearms to prove your strength. Where you go and what you do is your call whether counting cards, seducing dangerous women, cruising the strip or starting bar brawls, there’s lots of excitement on the way to the top.

The Four Pillars
The game's story and the action surrounding it will revolve around four pillars Surreal is focusing on for development: fight, race, gamble, and party.

The Suits
You'll find four communities in the game, named after the suits in a deck of cards: the Diamonds, "hard, rock-onl" high rollers; the Hearts, "lovable" old-school Vegas types; the Clubs, hip tryst clubbers; and the Spades, "we're are new" tourist types. The missions you undertake will improve your reputation with them, which will afford you certain benefits in the form safe rewards.

This is Vegas Exclusive Hands-On - First Look @ Gamespot (http://www.gamespot.com/xbox360/action/thisisvegas/news.html?sid=6189469&mode=recent)


This is Vegas is taking a humorous, tongue-in-cheek approach. Surreal representatives say the result falls somewhere between Ocean's Eleven and a Will Ferrell movie.

FARCRY 2------First 2 hr Play impressions

Ok started with Farcry 2 (Left BIA :: HH)..... The very first impression.......

Games recomends Vista SP1 at the very first run, I am not sure if this could be the reason but I was not getting an all smooth framrate at ultra high setting 8X AA @ 1440x900, so switched to 4X AA with very high setting and the game was running smoothly.

After a couple of hrs of play, I can tell you this is a slow paced game, atleast in the first two hrs......you just buid up your game existance know the environment, few people around and make couple of buddies. Virtually no action at all. Visually game is satisfying (but not like our good old COD 4---- COD 4 engine is by far the best engine if you ask me which has given phenomicnal graphic quality with least taxsation on the GPU..... Hats off to COD 4 developers)..... Back to FC-2. FC_2 graphic environment has more dirt toned texture(like MW), nothing like Farcry 1. FarCry 1 was very sparky in all colors it had. FC-2 is more subtle in this regard, still you enjoy as its all africa jungle you will wander about........

Controlls are good except few things right off the bat you will notice.......

The FR-2 game covers the entire monitor screen with the FPS view without giving any continuous information, i.e you get to see your amunations graph or bar only when you fire, health bar only when you are loosing/gaining it. This is fine up to this part, but it get irritation when the directions and objective map is also toggled when you press a predefined key, this gets irritating as you have to keep pressing the key now and then to know where you have to go (unlike other games where in usually there is small compass or map at the bottom corners to let you know where you have to reach.)

In FC-2 this is very important as without it you are gonna definately get lost.....as it all jungle (not dense) around you and getting the map out by pressing the key again n again is irritating......

Rest I have not come across any drawback yet to discuess, will post my second review in bit more detail probably this weekend when I substantially move ahead in the game.

I have overwritten most of my saves. I'm on the 9th Chapter now & have encountered possibly 8-9 different type of necromorphs. The most brutal being 'The Hunter' & 'The Brute'. Both of them are a big pain in the ass. The Hunter can regenerate it's organs even if you dismember it completely. No way to kill it. When you see it do what everyone else does "Run. Run your ass off" :D

Brute on the other hand is more like a huge gorilla type necro. He can ram into you with great force. If you are low on health & he grabs hold of you then you will definitely witness the brutal body ripping scene in the entire game.

So far encountered only 2 bosses. Leviathan & the Slug boss. Both of them were pretty easy. Hope then finale is bigger. ;)

wow this sounds interesting, well I am at the end of the 3rd chapter and my first impressions is Game is WAY WAY better than DOOM 3 (somebody compared it with D-3).
But not better than Quake 4 in action...(well atleast till 3rd chapter). But the game definately has few really impressive innovations. Scary ambiance works well if yo are playing with your own supporting environment.

But one thing I am VERY surprised no body has brought in to notice (or may be I couldnt figure out....correct me if that is the case)......is that the direction keys (the arrow ones) cannot be mapped for movement. You have to play with w,a,s,d combination. Are you all playing with the same. I mean this is the first game I have encountered where in you can not map the arrow keys. For me this was the most irritating factor, as all other functions had to be mapped near w,a,s,d keys.
Am I missing something or you all are so comfortable with the combination that no body bothered to bring this in to notice.
I have never played a gam,e with w,a,s,d keys and so for me I am having a hard tomes in getting used to. The game is DAMM addictive and so I am managing some how and moving ahead.

Playing FarCry 2 as well but I am spending more time on Dead Space. Will try to post some snapshots of the game.

Harwik said AI is crap for this game, well I feel that till now we are only dealing with wierd/crapped up species that would anyhow show less signs of intelligence, and would just come and pound upon you, which is what is happening. So I dont feel AI to be any bottle neck, I am not sure how the game would turn up ahead.

Allwy you seems to be far ahead from most of us, probably you can through some light on this.......

But one thing I am VERY surprised no body has brought in to notice (or may be I couldnt figure out....correct me if that is the case)......is that the direction keys (the arrow ones) cannot be mapped for movement. You have to play with w,a,s,d combination. Are you all playing with the same. I mean this is the first game I have encountered where in you can not map the arrow keys. For me this was the most irritating factor, as all other functions had to be mapped near w,a,s,d keys. No idea. I used Keyboard+Mouse only for the initial 10 mins after which I shifted to the Xbox 360 controller which I find way more comfy right now. The mouse sensitivity seemed to be a bit low for me. So didn't bother going back to it.

Allwy you seems to be far ahead from most of us, probably you can through some light on this.......I'm now on the Final Chapter & so far the AI has been pretty decent. They respond & relocate according to your position. Especially those Lurkers who always keep a certain distance from you & shift onto the walls to spew noxious needles with their tentacles. They have a good range so it can't hurt badly. Most of the necros tend to attack head on & it's a bit tough to take them out if you're surrounded. I found the AI to be pretty good. I was disappointed with the boss fights & there are just 3 in total in the entire game. I expected more but WTH may be next time. ;)

there is a place at the end of round 4 (may be in the middle) where in you have to cross the through the space, and vaccum both, but the thing this time is that when we move out in open space the debries/Astroids from the space start falling and hit you every time you move out....I hope you remember the place I am talking about. The below snap may give u an idea, just after the door opens there is open space and after a moment astroids start falling. I have no idea how to cross, slowing the time does not work here, is there any other trick ...?????

It took me a while to figure it out but here's how I did it. Before entering the area Sam just remember to collect a compressed air can which is lying around. This will help you get through this area. Once you're out in the open & they say something about the asteroid warning just take cover behind those metal blocks in front of you. Just wait till those asteroid complete it's firing then run as fast as you can & take cover behind the closest blockade you can find. Don't stay out in the open for too long else it will shred you into pieces for sure. Towards the end you'll probably run out of your oxygen supply. Once that is nearing just use your compressed air can that you picked up.

BTW wanted to share some news with you people.......



Call of Duty: World at War will feature a "zombie mode" that's unlocked once you complete the game. It's a four-player co-op mode pitting you against endless waves of Nazi undead. Man, that sounds cool just saying it. The mode features its own economy in which things like buying weapons as well as making barricades and moving obstacles cost money. Yes, flamethrowers are involved.

Here is the video link for a small preview.......

Game :- Prototype
Genre :- Action/Adventure/Sci-Fi
Developer :- Radical Entertainment
Release Date :- March '09

Discover what lies beyond the edge of evolution. An all-new, 3rd person open-world/action game, PROTOTYPE puts gamers at the helm of Alex Mercer a genetically mutated shape-shifter with no memory of his past hell-bent on solving the mystery of his existence as he tears through a densely populated New York City moving with Parkour-style fluidity and consuming anybody that gets in his way... assuming their physical identity, memories and abilities.

04-11-2008, 09:27 PM
I'll quote myself again from the "What games are you currently addicted to?" thread. I suppose Ajay was stuck in the same situation as you.


Let me first understand this correctly. Did you run out of that chamber where the hunter (regenerating necro) was let loose? or are you still in that Chamber? If you have ran out when Kendra informs you that it is indestructible then you should be in the next room. To get rid of the bugs use the flame thrower. The hunter can't be destroyed so in order to open any locked doors you need to take out any other Necro's that spawn apart from the hunter. If the hunter is on your tail then use stasis to slow him down for sometime while you take the rest out. Else he will just keep coming in your way. You need to make your way towards the Security station after that.

sam9s
04-11-2008, 10:16 PM
^^ I am inside the chamber, and I do not have a flame thrower :-( . All I can do is shoot them down which buys me couple of seconds before they regenerate. I couldnt understand this statement "The hunter can't be destroyed so in order to open any locked doors you need to take out any other Necro's that spawn apart from the hunter

What good would killing the other spawns do...as all I get from them is ammo and health, how am I suppose to unlock the door. Or is it like it gets unlocked automatically after you take down the spawns.

Damm I dont even have full health...... static is full I guess.....leme try again......

Faun
04-11-2008, 10:35 PM
^^seems like you're having some pretty good survival time :D

Ethan_Hunt
04-11-2008, 11:22 PM
Wait you're inside the chamber? Then it's pretty simple. Just slow him down with stasis for sometime & keep dismembering his limbs. Once he is down, Kendra will inform you that it will not die & just regenerate it's body parts. Once you hear that look to the door on your right (the one from where you entered initially) & it should be unlocked. Just escape from there. Once in the next room the rest of the bugs will start coming in. If you don't have a flame thrower just blast them with anything you have. Then finally head towards the Security station.


I couldnt understand this statement "The hunter can't be destroyed so in order to open any locked doors you need to take out any other Necro's that spawn apart from the hunterThere are times when you will be locked out in rooms which will have the Hunter along with some other Necros. The locked doors can only be unlocked once all the Necros apart from the Hunter are killed. Since the Hunter won't die, you just keep him away from you.

Ethan_Hunt
04-11-2008, 11:40 PM
*SPOILER*
Yes you can. I didn't want to spoil it as it happens almost towards the 10 chapter. It's totally worth watching. You have to test your shuttle's firing sequence. That's when a whole battalion of Twitchers arrive along with the Hunter. Once those Twicthers are down, just dismember the hunters legs & let it crawl near the shuttle & you need to go inside a room & hit the shuttle fire sequence. The hunters ass gets toasted. That's the last that we see of him *PHEW*.

Thanks Allwy I was able to easily move ahead, it was just a matter of waiting, I was not paitent enough... :-) I am now almost at the end of chapter 6. Man this game is really addictive, but I felt the game is bit short of action and hence less on ammo and more on get the hell outa here concept
The typical blood bath killing rarely happenes, most of the time you just fight for survival (not that I do not like this limitation) BUT I kinda enjoy the "Come on you junkies !!! let me rip your ass apart" feeling and then..... BANG BANG BANG ....all blood and flesh scattered every where (some thing like Quake 4) :D "
================================================== =====
Anyway has anybody tried/know this game called Rhiannon: Curse of the Four Branches

Its a point n click (I think something like RE 1) but game and seems to be interesting and advance in this Genre. Some extracts from GameSpot

* Superb, chilling tale reminiscent of the best haunted-house stories
* Clever inventory puzzles based on common-sense solutions
* Wordy in-game documents add depth to both story and setting and make you care about the characters.

More Info : On GameSpot (http://www.gamespot.com/pc/adventure/rhiannoncurseofthefourbranches/index.html)

User Rating on game spot is 7.5

STORY :: Rhiannon: Curse of the Four Branches, based on the classic Welsh Four Branches legends, is set in a mystical place on the Celtic fringes of Britain, a place where myth and magic spill into reality, threatening the sanity of a teenage girl and bringing an ancient battle for revenge to a remote Welsh farmstead. Are reports of unexplained noises and strange visions by fifteen year old Rhiannon Sullivan merely the figments of an overactive imagination? Or does the history of her family's new home, Ty Pryderi, hold a terrible connection to a timeless struggle between man and magic? Her parents take Rhiannon away, leaving Ty Pryderi to your watch and exploration, but their absence can only postpone an ancient inevitability of revenge and death...unless you stop it.

12. Cryostasis: The Sleep of Reason

Release Date : Was suppose to be released in Q4 2008
Current Status : TBA Q1 2009

Genre : FPS (Action/Horror)

Platform : PC

Extract from Game Spot

Cryostasis is an FPS horror game set in 1968, inside a Russian north pole nuclear station filled with mutated creatures.

Discription ::

The Arctic Circle, Russian North Pole station 'Pole 21', 1968 - Alexander Nesterov is a meteorologist sent to investigate the final hours of the North Wind, an old nuclear ice-breaker trapped in an icy grave. This steel beast once fought for its country, but during a dangerous mission it drifted into an ice trap slowly freezing to death every living thing on board. Alex must fight against the intense cold by finding any remaining heat sources as he investigates the final days of the North Wind and unlocks the mysteries within. However, Alex is no ordinary meteorologist as he possesses a unique 'Mental Echo' ability that allows him to relive the final memories of the dead and change their actions in the past, changing their future. Nothing can prepare Alex for the truth he uncovers as he digs deeper into the history of the ship. Cryostasis: Sleep of Reason takes players on a terrifying trip into the unknown as they explore the dark, frozen, claustrophobic corridors and unlock the shocking secrets of the North Wind.

I like RTS, but its the time n patience that is in shortage now, RTS has a certain level of learning curve that requires time......In college AOE III and commandos were practically our religion over LAN, along with NFS :: Hot pursuit and motoracer.
Now Companies of heros is all I have played for long but that too only for couple of hrs. There are loads of other games on shelf these days and so RTS takes a back seat.....for me atleast

BTW @Kpower/amrawtanshx I am almost ready with COD MP patches n Himachi.... will soon let you the status.......

Let me know when ur ready for a frag fest.

But now I have a problem, my Terminals are starting from 20th so I will play less games... .but I will play anyways :D.

Anyway not to be disappointed as I said lots of worth games coming up...and for people who are like totally disappointed by EA after UC.....here I am again to give you a preview of another very interesting game to look forwarded to......incidentally published by EA.......


13. Mirror Edge

Developer : Digital Illusions CE

Release Date : Jan 2009

Genre : Modern FPS (Action)

Platform : PC, xbox 360, PS3

First Extracts from Gamespot :

EA DICE's new first-person action adventure game will allow you to move in ways never before seen in a first-person game.

How do you make daring first-person rooftop traversals at high speed while under a hail of gunfire?

When EA DICE announced Mirror's Edge, senior producer Owen O'Brien hinted that it would "change the way that players are able to move in first person."

Running across rooftops and making nausea-inducing leaps with grace and fluidity

Discription ::

Mirror's Edge introduces players to Faith, a "runner" in a world where communication channels are highly monitored and the movement of human traffic is closely watched. When Faith's sister gets framed for a murder she did not commit, Faith finds herself on the edge of the city, on the wrong side of the law.

Mirror's Edge delivers players straight into the shoes of this modern day heroine as she traverses the vertigo-inducing cityscape, engaging in intense combat, fast-paced chases and challenging puzzles. With a never-before-seen sense of movement and perspective, players are drawn into Faith's world.

More Extracts to be noted....

The first-person genre has consisted almost entirely of shooters throughout its existence, but every now and then someone comes along and plays with the perspective a bit. DICE and EA hope to shake things up with Mirror's Edge, a title that, while containing (optional) gunplay, has its focus set squarely on navigating the environment, almost like a first-person Prince of Persia.

While you're able to fight folks at times, you are indeed on the run for most of the game. Helicopters will swoop in and open fire on you, forcing you to be quick when navigating fire escapes and the like. Soldiers will force you through buildings, so you need to be quick to find the next safe route. There's a button assigned to pointing your view in the direction of where you should go, which is very helpful in some situations, but it's not always available, making some sections based more on exploration than a quick escape.

At top speed, Faith can negotiate obstacles with a fluid grace never before seen in a first-person game. If performed perfectly--and we mean perfectly--she can run up a ramp, jump over a window, slide under a gap in a fence, slide down a zip line, run sideways along a skyscraper wall, swing on an overhanging pipe, jump to the next roof, or wall jump left and then right until she finally stands on a rooftop overlooking a gleaming (yet equally oppressive) city. If you stumble or mistime a jump, you'll lose momentum. It's not the end the world. The giant sewer and cityscape environments that we saw had many different ways to reach the same objective, but a seamless run feels amazing, especially when police are gunning for you.

Colin McRae: DiRT 2 Announced

UK, November 19, 2008 - Codemasters has announced it is to release a sequel to Colin McRae: DiRT, the highly acclaimed off-road racer that lit the dawn of the current generation in 2007. Dubbed Colin McRae: DiRT 2, the game will retain the name of the late Scottish rally driver who fostered the series from its roots on the first PlayStation before his untimely death prior to the release of DiRT.

"Colin McRae was all about the speed, the excitement and the entertainment of rally driving," said the game's executive producer Gavin Raeburn. "Later his showmanship shone through in events such as the X-games, the Dakar Rally and the Race of Champions. He could do things with a car that no one else would and that's where we're taking the series with new events at the extreme edge of rally and motorsport. It will be a great tribute to an incredible champion."

Exploring various disciplines of off-road racing, Colin McRae: DiRT 2 will utilise an enhanced version of the EGO engine that was last seen in the impressive looking GRID, and will feature comprehensive online modes that promise to be a marked improvement over those in the original.

Colin McRae: DiRT 2 will be spreading its wings beyond the HD axis of Xbox 360, PC and PlayStation 3, with versions also scheduled for the Wii, DS and PSP. It's due at an unspecified date in 2009

14. Prototype

Release Date : FEB 2009

Genre : Action Adventure (TPS)

Platform : PC/PS3/Xbox360

Extract from Game Spot

An open-world game set in New York starring a shapeshifting man who can copy the appearance, skills, and powers of anyone he comes across.

Wow...sounds interesting

More Details (http://ces.gamespot.com/story.html?sid=6202968)

Discription ::

In Prototype, players take control of Alex Mercer – a dark, genetically mutated shape-shifter with no memory of his past, hell-bent on solving the mystery of his existence as he tears through a densely populated New York City moving with Parkour-style fluidity and consuming anything that gets in his way.

Deceive or Destroy gameplay allows gamers the choice to either blend in with the population and covertly progress through the story, or fully unleash Alex’s powers, and move through New York City like a walking slaughterhouse, taking control of military vehicles, and causing destruction at every turn.

WOW again distruction at every level....sounds like my kinda game...
