Games I want to play in 2011

Fall is coming and even though there were quite a few very cool indie games this year (see my review of Limbo for example), the big blockbusters are still to come! Sure there has been Blink and Homefront out already, but although being hyped a lot, i somehow never got myself to show any interest in them. Instead, here is a short introduction into my most anticipated ones:

Game Review: Limbo

Maybe you have played the 1991 platformer ‘Another World‘ back in the Amiga or in my case Atari times. I remember the very smooth animations which in those days were just awesome compared to the frame-by-frame pixel animation most of the games had. Without any textures however the game got a certain minimalistic feel. This is what Limbo (Latin limbus, edge or boundary, referring to the “edge” of Hell) reminds me of. But I am not comparing. It is fresh. It is more creepy. And this is due to two simple design decisions: first of all it is all black and white, with an old flickering camera effect and all shapes are drawn as silhouettes only. Second, there is no music whatsoever. Just sounds and some ambient noise. And those are just awesome! Footsteps, flies and… what is that noise coming from the bushes over there?

Creepy visual art, perfect atmosphere. My new favorite parallax-scrolling puzzle platformer is called... Limbo! (sorry, Braid)

Battlefield 3 Multiplayer Teaser ‘Operation Metro’

I already posted this clip on my facebook application page yesterday just when it was released by DICE/EA, but I know a lot of people who are not on facebook anymore. So here you have it too: The latest Battlefield 3 Multiplayer Teaser, recorded on the Multiplayer Map ‘Operation Metro’, which is going to be played like a Rush Map (as known from Bad Company 2). Enjoy the destructible environment and – what amazes me in every single trailer I have seen so far – the fantastic ambient sound effects. Pure awesomeness!

Battlefield 3 – Fault Line 12 Minutes Gameplay Trailer Released

DICE/EA has kept us waiting for long enough now and according to their tweets the development of Battlefield 3 is making great progress. Now they have released the full 12 minutes trailer of which we have already seen most parts in their previous releases – but now in a consecutive story line with a few scenes that have not been shown before…

The most impressive would be the earthquake in the end followed by some more sneak preview scenes that make your jaw drop. I feel totally immersed into the atmosphere – especially I love those majestic sound effects!

Cant wait to see some multiplayer now… this truly seems to get epic!

From Dust

It just so happens once in a while that i just accidentally come across a new game that is going to be released soon, of which i have never heart before but which seems to have a lot of potential to catch my attention in the long run. One of those games is “From Dust” which is the working title of a new Ubisoft game by Eric Chahi. It is a god game, where you (the god) are in control of some natural elements (in this case sand, lava, water and vegetation) to form the world for the human inhabitants by preventing disasters, creating living space or causing havoc (probably like many god games where Populous was the first i remember playing). Why am i mentioning this game after we have played so many other similar games already until exhaustion? Well, it is definitely the art style of this one that fascinated me. There is not much info on the gameplay as of now, but i can see a lot of potential there. Basically i just wanted to let you know that i will keep my eye on this game. Release date is somewhere around summer 2011. I just hope that it will not fail to fulfill my expectations as Black & White did some time ago. Even though i am not much into this kind of games anymore, i can imagine that it would be relaxing to play one of those endless single player modes all by myself for a change (there is no multiplayer announced). I am impatiently now waiting for more details on the gameplay itself and see what it turns into…

I found this video of an early game engine demo:

Another teaser with similar clips from the demo plus some pictures can be found on the official homepage.

There is also an interview with its creator Eric about the ideas behind the game on youtube:

Battlefield 3 Ingame Teaser Released

As you might know, the Battlefield series has been the favorite multiplayer game for me and my friends since day one. Currently we are playing Bad Company 2 (including Vietnam expansion) and i even have a facebook app/community page with 17.500+ people at http://apps.facebook.com/badcompanytwo.

This year in fall Battlefield 3 is going to be released and rumours on twitter aside on how awesome it will be, now there is a teaser where you can have a first glance at the ingame atmosphere and graphics. I must admit, my jaw dropped and i had to watch it like 5 times in row to believe what i am seeing. I would have to get some proper equipment to be able to play it though.

I was thinking of getting myself 2x nvidia 580 graphic cards to be able to play on 3 monitors this month – but now i am thinking to wait a bit for the next generation of nvidia cards to be able to play bf3 on 3 screens properly as well…
