Resistance 2 is the follow-up to the PS3 exclusive, Resistance. In the original Resistance, a Russian-created virus transforms the infected into the Chimera, a species hell-bent on world domination. Resistance 2 shows the efforts against the spread with the creation of the Sentinels, a special task force resistant to the virus. In addition, Resistance 2 ups the ante with a full-scale Chimeran invasion of North America. This sequel also brings to the table a host of new weapons, eight-player online coop, enormous boss battles, and new Chimera to fight. Expect this game to be released on November 4, 2018, in North America.
Fallout 3 is the third in the Fallout series, where a series of protagonists must overcome the difficulties of living in post-apocalyptic America within isolated habitats called Vaults. In Fallout 3, the main character is a member of Vault 101 and must go out into the wasteland in search of their father. The most anticipated feature of this game is the size and scope. Fallout 3 is designed by Bethesda Software, the creators of The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion. Actually, when played through, including the sub-quests, the game is over 200 hours long! The gameplay is unique in that Bethesda has created a blend of real-time and turn-based combat. Another unique feature of Fallout 3 is the weapons system, in which firearms degenerate over time and can be combined to create new weapons. Expect Fallout 3 to be released on October 28, 2018.
LittleBigPlanet is a revolutionary game in which every user contributes. The players can mold the environment to whatever they like, either alone or with a friend. The levels themselves are aimed towards physics-based gameplay, and the scope of the levels can range from small to the highly complex. However, the levels are essentially large puzzles. Expect LittleBigPlanet to be released in October 2018.
Mirror’s Edge is a game that truly breaks the mold in both gameplay and graphics. This game is set in a totalitarian state reminiscent of Orwell’s 1984, in which the main character Faith must transport messages outside of government surveillance network. Graphics are the main advantage of Mirror’s Edge, notable for a large amount of color and realistic nature. The gameplay of Mirror’s Edge is unique in that there is no HUD, and the range of motion is much greater. Expect Mirror’s Edge to be released on November 11, 2018.
BioShock is actually a game released for the Xbox 360 and PC and came out with a bang. BioShock is famous for its art (specifically, art deco), and otherworldly, dystopian story. The game is set in an underwater utopia originally designed to facilitate the perfection of man through genetic manipulation, which ultimately went out of control. The player must battle through the city and unravel what happened. The PS3 version contains additional content and a “Survivor Mode;” expect BioShock for PS3 to be released on October 21, 2018.
