Kran2300d ago (Edited 2300d ago )

So basically, avoid every other game this september besides Gears 3, Resistance 3, Dead Island and Dark Souls (Released in Japan. US/EU isnt until October)?

EDIT: And as God said, the ICO/SotC Collection.

BeOneWithTheGun2300d ago

The way it read it sounded like he was saying to NOT play the original Splinter Cell because the HD remakes are coming up soon. Er, duh? Like someone who has not played the game EVER is suddenly going to play the old original and not wait a couple weeks? That made no sense.

MaxXAttaxX2300d ago

Operation Raccoon City is a straight up run-and-gun shooter. So if I'm to get a RE game then it's going to be RE4HD.

The author apparently has never heard of Driver on the PS1 before. He never made any mention of any of the previous games and compares it to The Wheelman and tell you to buy Forza instead, LOL. Very different game.

Nothing wrong with the SC collection if you never played them before and want to play the better SC games.

Warhammer 40K's design really is a little ridiculous. And come on, the name "Space Marine" sounds a bit desperate.

Getting the SH collection.

The PSP GOW games are great. If you haven't played them, get the collection.

[ IMO ]

ABizzel12300d ago

I never buy the collection titles Day 1 anyway. They generally go on sale somewhere for $20 after a 2 or 3 months anyway.

@NathanExplosion

To be fair, Warhammer 40k is about 25 years old, and the Space Marines are pretty much the most popular group in the game world. That's not saying they didn't use that title to draw in purchases, but they honestly have the right to.

Should point out, I don't really have much interest in the game itself though...although I do like what little we've seen on the upcoming (2014+?) Warhammer 40k MMO.

Lich1202300d ago

What bugs me is, Warhammer are the ones who should be aloud to use the term space marine. They came up with it long before it became the watered down mess that we have now. I haven't played the demo so Im not sure of the quality but from what I've seen the game plays very differently than Gears of War. So having Gears 3 launch is no reason to not buy Space Marines.

deathbetold2300d ago (Edited 2300d ago )

@lich120

they may have been the first to use it in a game but they didnt come up with the name.

E. E. Smith Lensman series 1934–1954 Galactic Marines

Robert A. Heinlein "Misfit" 1939 Space Marines

Robert A. Heinlein "The Long Watch" 1941 Space Marines

Robert A. Heinlein Starship Troopers 1959 Mobile Infantry

but they werent even the first ones to use it in a game

gamingdroid2300d ago

Did you try the demo?

Of what I saw it was an above average game. I'm considering buying it as a budget title. That is if time permits me to play it.

killcycle2299d ago

Why avoid The splinter Cell collection?
I don't get it i think it's pretty good and even has 3D support.

@gamerdroid

Unfortunately I haven't had time to check out the demo yet since I've been so wrapped up in deus ex. However, it looks like the coop play could be a ton of fun so Im definitely keeping it on my list of possible purchases.

Also, death, thanks for the heads up lol. You're practically a encyclopedia of Space Marine knowledge =)

That's what I got.

zerocrossing2300d ago

Hey, Im not saying I agree.

Godchild10202300d ago

You forgot the Ico & Sotc collection. Sadly I will not pass up the GOW collection V2. The 3 games you have listed other then Dark Souls (will have to wait until October) will be my purchases this month. Dead island is a maybe for now.

Tanir2300d ago

lol dark souls is gonna make me skip uncharted, gears, dead island, skyrim, and res 3 haha, i will beat it twice then play them

Why o why2300d ago

We're all different i suppose. Nothing wrong with that. The end of the year is gunna be jam for me

JoySticksFTW2300d ago

Uncharted is my favorite new IP this gen, but I'm more hyped up for Dark Souls.

I've already had two Uncharted's these past few years, so I'm not chomping at the bit for the third game. Same with Gears 3.

But I get to play Demon's Souls spiritual successor soon? That's another story. The only thing better would be a direct Demon's Souls sequel to reveal more of the mystery of the first game.

Uncharted 3 I can wait a bit; but Dark Souls is day one for me.

chaldo2299d ago

Nah I'll play Uncharted 3 before anything..

Yes, even before MW2.1 (which is last on my list) of course!

Christopher2300d ago

***be reasonable [Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine] is a Gears of War clone***

/facepalm with the power of an a-bomb.

NCAzrael2300d ago

I'm not all that excited about Space Marine as I've got a bunch of other stuff going on in September, and October and November (and beyond) will be swamped with RAGE, BF3, and Skyrim, but that statement just made me want to kick a baby seal.

Everyone is saying Space Marine copied Gears of War with the whole chainsaw sword thing, when in fact Cliffy B (in one of his rare moments of not being a complete tool) admitted that the idea for the chainsaw gun came from Warhammer. The over the top gore and feel of the game are all lifted straight out of games like Dawn of War and Dawn of War II, which is exactly how it should be.

jerethdagryphon2300d ago

exactly how is it a gears clone gears copied its chain guns from orcs and other things

40k has had chain weapons power armor power weapons big nasty gribblys for decades

joeorc2300d ago

his quote:

"Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine

A demo is available for this, and quite frankly the game holds up very well but come on, be reasonable it's a Gears of War clone and with Gears of War 3 mere weeks away, you'd be mad to choose this over Epic's more polished and feature laden effort. Once the dust has settled, this will be a great investment no doubt"

after he said that i could not in good faith take him to being sarcastic or is he trying to be funny?

"but come on, be reasonable it's a Gears of War clone"

there is not enough pams to make it a complete facepalm based on his Opinion. Warhammer 40k is not a clone that is for sure.

fr00ty-wizenhymer2300d ago

This list sucks.
Bodycount will be great, it's by the same guys that did BLACK. Nothing like Bulletstorm.

Warhammer 40k Space Marine is not a Gears clone. You obviously never play the Warhammer series. If anything Gears borrowed from them.

As for the HD collections they're defiantly worth it if your interested in replaying or playing for the first time.

joeorc2300d ago (Edited 2300d ago )

"Warhammer 40k Space Marine is not a Gears clone. You obviously never play the Warhammer series. If anything Gears borrowed from them."

100% right you are an

As a matter of fact Warhammer 40k's root's are over 30 years old. 31 years to be exact.

Laserburn is a set of wargaming rules written by Bryan Ansell in 1980

if those did not know who Bryan is:

Some elements of the Laserburn rules, such as power and dreadnought armour, bolt guns and jet cycles were carried forward and appear in Warhammer 40,000 by Games Workshop.

Who Ansell worked for in the late 80s onwards.

Bryan Ansell is a British role-playing and war game designer. He founded Asgard Miniatures before creating Citadel Miniatures in the late 1970s.

remember Kids:

Clifford Michael "Cliff" Bleszinski (born February 12, 1975

so 5 years after Cliff was born Warhammer 40k was already being created.

Cliff was 5 yeas old when warhammer 40k was created.

lmao..yea warhammer 40k is a clone of gears? my @ss it's a clone..lol

gamingdroid2300d ago

There are similarities as in being a third person shooter and weapons with chain saws, but beyond that I don't see the similarity at all.

kikizoo2300d ago

"ro Evolution Soccer 2012

Just get FIFA 12 instead if soccer is your thing. End of story! No seriously, do you really need a new soccer game?"

xboxerUS mentality, he don't know anything about the two games, but he has already made a choice...and worst, say to others to do the same.

dcbronco2300d ago

@kikizoo,

With that logic he might as well add Madden to the list. It's about as popular in Europe as rugby is here. And at least the rugby game might be good.

Miiikeyyy2300d ago

msxbox-world.com always has shit articles, remember when they didn't have xbox news, so they were writing about the PS3. They don't have news now, so they're writing shit like this!

DeadlyFire2300d ago

WTF RE 4 HD is on the list? someone needs a swift kick in the cherries.

Bodycount? Its BLACK's spiritual sequel + super powers. Its not perfect sequel to it, but it will do. Hopefully it could inspire EA to take a look at building a sequel to BLACK.

gw4k2299d ago

How about you keep your opinions to yourself MSXBOX-WORLD.COM!!!
Gah, what a url! Haha

zerofourseven2300d ago

Well that is my plane, Dead Island and Gears is it for me

LoaMcLoa2300d ago

Why would we want to avoid such an awesome game?

ginganinja2300d ago

Because we know it's just going to sap alllll our time. We've got to give the other games a chance..

Ramses32300d ago

Im definatly avoiding bodycount. Terrible demo...

BeOneWithTheGun2300d ago

Lol, that's harsh, man. I think it would be more PC to call it an abortion.

e-p-ayeaH2300d ago

its no better than DNF ill tell ya that even graphic wise.

Ramses32300d ago

I actually thought DNF was better then Bodycount. At lest you knew you wernt supposed to take DNF seriously.

Bull5hifT2300d ago (Edited 2300d ago )

It looked like there was something wrong with the resolution then i noticed some thongs can be shot through... So i guess it needed to look crappy to handle kind of destructible wood planks... I only liked the ammo thing , i get tired of having to click on the weapon during a huge gun fight, trying to get the ammo of another thats sitting on the floor next to it, and i die, thats the main reason i can never pasS a game without being killed once cause stupidity like that

SilentNegotiator2300d ago

It's a shame to see the developers of Black disappoint.

ginganinja2300d ago

It's not 'the' developers of Black. It's 'a' developer of Black - Stuart Black, in fact, who even left Codemasters before the game was finished.

'The' developers of Black are still going strong making Burnout and NFS games as Criterion.

MaxOpower2300d ago

This is awful, poor ten developers....
