Japanese developer Suda51 (No More Heroes) is embracing his dark side with Shadows of the Damned. Working with Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami, the pair clearly aren’t pulling any punches in the scary and grotesque imagery department. Demons and blood-soaked monsters look like they’ll keep me up at night. I scare easily though… (which is why I still haven’t played Dead Space 2)
There hasn’t been a whole lot of information released about SotD, but the more I see of the game, the more I want to know.
Rocksteady put out a few new Arkham City screens. Not much to say about ’em; I think Harley Quinn has bigger boobs in this game than she did in Arkham Asylum. After looking at the screens, feel free to go tie a sheet around your neck and yell; “I’M BATMAN”! We all know you want to.
Earlier this week, Games4thought reported on the first details Bayonetta developer Platinum games newest project was leaked by Famitsu via Japanese gaming industry blog Andriasang. In my earlier report, I wrote that Max Anarchy is going to be a multiplayer-intensive brawler/fighter that will be released in Japan some time during 2011.
Technically all of that is true: The Japanese version of the game will be called Max Anarchy. In the US, however, the game will be called Anarchy Reigns.
Now that the cat’s out of the bag and the project is out in the open, Sega decided to make a separate US announcement, revealing the game’s new title, along with a couple of screenshots and a teaser trailer. (Check ’em out after the jump) Game director Masaki Yamanaka also confirmed that Anarchy Rising will see a worldwide release this fall.

Three things we know about the new Medal of Honor:
1. Players will infiltrate caves in Afghanistan
2. You may spend a lot of time sniping
3. It looks pretty cool
EA currently plans to release “Medal of Honor” this fall.
(WARNING: THIS POST CONTAINS “KILLZONE 2” SPOILERS)
Days after Gamepro broke the news that Killzone 3 is on the way, Sony Computer Entertainment of Europe made their own announcement via their blog. Frankly speaking, SCEE’s announcement didn’t provide much new information about the game as a whole, but it did discuss the plot of the single-player campaign. Killzone 3 picks up exactly where Killzone 2 left off – The team is stuck on Helghan looking for a way out. Meanwhile, with Visari dead, the Helghast government is imploding as multiple factions fight for power.
The best part of the announcement, though, was that SCEE posted their first screens of the game. Check ’em out.
So by now you may have heard that Activision plans to release a second set of “Modern Warfare 2” maps. The “Surplus,” like it’s predecessor, the “Stimulus” Pack, features five new maps – three original maps and two updated versions of maps from the original “Modern Warfare.” The map pack will run you 15 bucks, (1200 MS points) also just like the original. Can’t wait? Well, here are a few images showing off the maps for you to drool over until the DLC is released on Xbox Live on June 3rd.
Unfortunately for those of us playing MW2 on PS3 or PC, the wait is a little longer. Due to an exclusivity agreement between Activision and Microsoft, “Surplus” won’t be released for PS3 or PC users right away. Assuming the agreement is similar to the one made for “Stimulus”, PS3 and PC gamers should expect to get their hands on “Surplus” until early to mid July: “Stimulus” was exclusively available on Xbox Live for 34 days before being released for other forms of download.
As for the maps themselves – Activision is bringing back “Strike” and “Vacant” from MW, and adding three new and decidedly unorthodox locations for the originals. The names “Carnival” and “Trailer Park” pretty much speak for themselves, don’t you think? The last map, “Fuel”, well it isn’t actually so unorthodox – it’s set on an oil rig. Woo Hoo.
“Enslaved” – the newest project from the Ninja Theory, the team brought PS3 fans “Heavenly Sword” – is a post-apocalyptic re-telling of the classic Chinese story, “Monkey”. Based on what producer Namco says, the game plays like “Ico” meets “God of War” – an ambitious goal, to be sure. Then again, based on these screens, this is definitely going to be a game to watch.
Despite the fact that some have referred to “Castlevania: Lords of Shadow” as a “Dante’s Inferno Clone”, these new screens seem to indicate otherwise…
Konami’s come a long way since “Castlevania 64”. “Lords of Shadow” is definitely starting to look like a must-play game, especially for fans of the series. “Castlevania: Lords of Shadow” will be in stores July 14’th.
