Resident Evil 5
Survival horror rears its head again as an old favourite returns with a new action-oriented control scheme and cooperative gameplay.
Wanted: Weapons of Fate (PC, Xbox360, PS3)
Based on the graphic novel and movie of the same name, Wanted will allow players to experience life as geek-turned-super assassin, Wesley Gibson. You’ll be able to slow time down, curve bullets, kill a truck load of enemies and unravel the truth behind your family in this video game adaptation.
The Wheelman marks the return of Vin Diesel to videogames. Let’s hope he doesn’t disappoint.
Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X. (PS3, Xbox360, PC)
Developer Ubisoft is all set to offer players some high octane mile high combat action with High Altitude Warfare experimental squadron, or HAWX for short, that takes place between the events of Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 and End War. If it’s hardcore sim you crave for, remember to turn off all the assists.
Resistance Retribution (PSP)
Though I wasn’t a big fan of Resistance 2, I’m still looking forward to Retribution. For starters it’ll play out from a third person perspective (as opposed to the first person view of the first two games) and it will offer more enemies along with a brand new plot that takes place after the events of the first game.
Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3 (PS3)
Last year’s most excellent real time strategy game comes to the PS3 in the form of an Ultimate Edition bundled with some really exciting features that we simply have to list down for you:
1. Five exciting new multiplayer maps
2. Behind the scenes videos and trailers, including Raising the Iron Curtain documentary, From Pens to Pixels, The Girls of Red Alert 3, Bloopers & Outtakes, the Red Alert 3 Remix and many more.
3. PS3 exclusive Command & Conquer TV programming, including PS3-dedicated BattleCast PrimeTime and a special episode of Command School focused on tips, tricks and strategies from the development team
4. In-depth profiles on all the Red Alert 3 units
5. The official Red Alert 3 soundtrack
