BioShock 2

Features (from Xbox.com) :

Set approximately 10 years after the events of the original BioShock, the halls of Rapture once again echo with sins of the past. Along the Atlantic coastline, a monster has been snatching little girls and bringing them back to the undersea city of Rapture. Step into the boots of the most iconic denizen of Rapture, the Big Daddy, as you travel through the decrepit and beautiful fallen city, chasing an unseen foe in search of answers and their own survival.

Multiplayer in BioShock 2 provides a rich prequel experience that expands the origins of the BioShock fiction. Set during the fall of Rapture, assume the role of a Plasmid test subject for Sinclair Solutions, a premier provider of Plasmids and Tonics in the underwater city of Rapture that was first explored in the original BioShock. Use all the elements of the BioShock toolset to survive, as the full depth of the BioShock experience is refined and transformed into a unique multiplayer experience that can only be found in Rapture.

Tropico 3 goes back to the roots of the hit strategy series closely following the original Tropico story-line. The time is yesterday and the Cold War is in full swing. Through means devious and dubious you have seized power in the Caribbean island country of Tropico, where you now rule as the all-powerful “El Presidente”. You decide whether you want to use your army to secure your power base in the best traditions of corrupt, unscrupulous tyrants everywhere or lead your people to prosperity in your role as generous elder statesman.

No matter whether you turn Tropico into a vacation paradise, a police state or a modern industrial nation — you will always have to defend your actions before your people! Wander through Tropico as El Presidente in order to intimidate political opponents, hold populist speeches or just to enjoy your country’s own Caribbean flair. Don’t forget to keep a sharp eye on the dangers and side-effects of your absolute power! Danger lurks on every corner, be it militant revolutionaries bent on installing a communist junta, or the machinations of the superpowers USA and the Soviet Union, both of whom would like to see a more amenable ruler in strategically important Tropico!

Action – Rated Mature
Aliens vs. Predator

Features (from IGN.com) :

Developed at Rebellion by the team responsible for the original 1999 PC classic, the all-new Aliens vs. Predator allows players to take the role of three infamous species: Colonial Marines, Predators and Aliens. The game features a unique three-way online multiplayer experience, allowing gamers to battle for survival and the right to be crowned the deadliest species in the galaxy. Each race will also have its own distinct action-packed single-player campaign mode, with a storyline that cleverly interweaves with the other two species’ paths.

Set on planet BG-386; a human colonist mining group discovers an ancient pyramid containing a dark and horrible secret. Across the galaxy, a race of warriors is alerted to the discovery of their pyramid and a hunting party is dispatched to ensure that it remains sealed at all costs. Deep inside the ruined pyramid meanwhile, nature’s deadliest species awakes from centuries of hibernation intent on finding new prey.

Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce – 02.16.10
Action – Rated Teen
Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce

Features (from IGN.com) :

Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce is a game unlike any other in the franchise. Until now, the quintessential Dynasty Warriors experience pitted a lone warrior against thousands of enemies. For the first time in a Dynasty Warriors game, up to four friends can join together to form a “Strikeforce”. Working as a team, players can plan coordinated assaults to conquer massive armed fortresses and colossal beasts.

While immense castles, towers and ships serve as the settings for these legendary quests, the lighting-fast action will go where it has never gone before- the skies above. Gifted with new supernatural abilities characters can streak across the skies and battle enemies at high-altitude. With both single-player and multi-player quests, new “air” fighting techniques, radical character customization, new challenges to conquer, and downloadable content, Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce will forever change the way gamers experience the Dynasty Warriors universe.

  1. Obviously Bioshock 2 is the big release here.

    Also, why the hell does sonic need a car?

    • Panncakez says:

      I think there were some drunk developers for that one. Is that some kind of weird, customized Porsche he’s driving? XD That’s all I can see from that little image.

      • t0rm3n7 says:

    • StuntDouble2483 says:

      I’m the same way. I loved Bioshock: the setting, the story, and how it was told. But I also feel it was self contained, you know? I’ll probably check it out some time down the road though.

      Dante’s Inferno, though? Ninja Gaiden in Hell? I’m there!!

      • Poopie McGhee says:

        (Judging from the Demo) More like GoW (God of War) with Christian Mythology…

      • Ben Of Bodom UK says:

        I fully intend to document the event in photos! Unfortunately I’m travelling to America on the day the game’s released so it’ll have to wait a week ’till I get back :P

  17. Eternalist says:

    If we already have some pretty big releases already, what’s going to be in store for the rest of the year, asides from Natal, Reach and a few others?

  18. PikminGod says:

    OMG Dynasty Warriors Strikeforce!!! All the crappy hack and slash no creativity action with 3 of my closest friends! Seriously though how is this series still making money

  19. COL0NEL SANDERS says:

    Bioshock 2 FTW.

    :)

  20. CyanDeadEye says:

    BioShock set itself well for a sequel or a standalone game depending on the ending very good game. Though the whole Sonic + Car + Banjo Kazooie = game seems a litte….weird, Sonic can run faster than the speed of sound.
