Deux Ex Human Revolution....the first fifteen minutes (Xbox 360)

Hey guys, It's Tony here again, bringing you the first fifteen minutes or so of Deux Ex Human Revolution.

Now as I say in the video, i've never played a Deux Ex game before, much to the chagrin of some of my friends. So i've plumped in after some recommendations from some Twitter buddies (thanks guys). And this is meant to be a prequel, so I can play the other games afterwards...yippee!

I'm beavering my way through the first mission, and I have to say that if it continues in the way that it is, i'll be high;y impressed. Expect a review as soon as i've finished a playthrough of the game....however long that may be.

And if you really want to experience the first fifteen minutes yourself...don't play the fucking video! There are no spoilers, I didn't want to completely ruin it all for you....I stop when the action starts really, so watch with confidence.

Deux Ex Human Revolution is available now for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

Aliens: Colonial Marines - Debut trailer

Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god.......you get the idea.

I literally have a wood on now that i've watched this. Pleeeeeease Gearbox, DO NOT SCREW THIS ONE UP!

I'm one of the extremely small minority that actually liked the recent version of Aliens VS Predator. It was a bit clunky and archaic, kind of like my gran on her motor scooter, but I got quite a bit of fun out of it.

This however, looks in a different league!

Aliens: Colonial Marines is scheduled for release on March 30th, 2012.

Gamefreakblog check out the XBLA indie game Raven Thorne trial version

Recently released on the indie section of XBLA is this possible sleep hit of a game.

entitled Raven Thorne, it tells the tale of a looting and pillaging Norseman, who has to fight his way through six levels of mythological beasties, hacking, slashing, casting magic and avoiding bathing for as long as possible.

I'll have to admit, the indie section of Xbox live is as off my radar as the latest series of Big Brother, so it came as a surprise to see a game of this quality available. It's graphically fresh and very attractive, sounds great and control is very tight. And at the bargain price of 240MSP it's pretty much a done deal as purchasing goes.

I've downloaded the full game, and i'll be sticking up a review later this week. So if you're sitting on the fence check back in a few days for my thoughts.

You can check out the developers website right in this link.

And if you make a purchase, let me know what you think.

Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown Announcement Trailer

YES! Coming to XBLA/PSN next summer is one of THE greatest fighting games in existence....Virtua Fighter 5: Final showdown.

It's going to have a huge overhaul, including new destructible arenas, a wealth of customisation options, and hopefully it's going to sell a fuck load.

It deserves to. Virtua Fighter is hardly mentioned these days. It's a shame, as it's one of those fighting games that if you're really good at it, NO button basher will EVER take you down.

And Kage for the win, by the way.

Run & Gun - Episode 5 - Homefront commentary feat. Gamefreakblog

Hey guys, thanks for popping by my wee corner of the interweb again.

Today, if you haven't already watched it on my youtube channel, i'm bringing you a guest commentary that I had the opportunity to do this week. It's for a great Youtube/Twitter buddy of mine called Mattshotcha. He has a great channel where he puts up some absolutely killer Homefront videos. You remember Homefront don't you? It's that great game that everyone ignores over anything to do with Call of Duty.

One of Mattshotcha's series is called Run & Gun, where he goes into some fantastic detail about how to play on certain maps, weapons, spawn details....it really is one of my favourite series on YT, and he has some great montage videos in his Grindhouse gameplays as well.

So please, check out the commentary I did for him, and of course let me know if you enjoyed it, I appreciate all feedback.

And you can check out Mattshotcha's Youtube channel right here!

Gamefreak favourites: Splinter Cell Double Agent Ellsworth Prison level ...

Hey guys, another day, another video. In this Gamefreak favourites video i'll be looking at Splinter Cell Double Agent, specifically the Ellsworth penitentiary level, which is the one that stuck with me the most from the game.

Splinter Cell DA isn't completely terrible, but it's no Chaos Theory! It's worth playing just for this level alone, and I guess you can pick up the game for around a fiver right now. My problem was the whole appeasing two different factions within the game, and pissing about in the bad guys headquarters. Sam Fisher is a bad-ass killing machine...don't get him doing fucking chores!

Anyhoo....it's a great level, so enjoy.

And as always, your thoughts are appreciated.

Hey guys, thanks for tuning in. In todays video i'm looking at the recently released demo for El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron. It's absolutely beautiful to look at, pretty fluid to play (even though i don't comeplete the demo) and for me it's definately arrived on my radar.

If you have played the demo at all, let me know your thoughts. It's available right now, so go ahead and get downloading.

And i apologise for the terrible Alan Rickman impression....it'll never happen again.

Gamefreakblog looks at the Driver San Francisco demo (Xbox 360)

Hey guys, it's Tony here, with a brief look at the new demo for Driver: San Francisco. It's Driver as we know it, with some kind of new Quantum Leap body-swapping dynamic introduced, which I can't tell at this early stage if I think is refreshing and unique or balls out dumb. It's avaiable for download now, so you can be the judge yourself.

Driver: San Francisco is scheduled for release on September 2nd, 2011.

Gamefreak favourites: Final fight (XBLA) Stage 2: The subway.

Hey guys, it's time for another in the Gamefreak favourites series. It's another retro one, and probably my last retro favourite for ewww.....at least a week or two. This time, i'm looking at the classic side scrolling basher "Final Fight", chewing my way through the second stage of the game, the subway. I bloody love this level, and if you don't i'll kick your head off!

Cause that's how I roll innit!!

Enjoy my friends.

Gamefreakblog looks at MVC3, Streetfighter 4 and the great Capcom DLC sw...

Hey guys, hope you had a great weekend. It was bloody warm.

Today I look at Capcom, and the way I feel they are taking the piss in regards to DLC and additional games in the Marvel VS Capcom 3 and Streetfighter 4 series. As I say in the video, additional DLC is one of those things.....you don't have to buy it, but you feel like you're missing out of you don't. Be it a map pack for Call of Duty, new cars for NFS: Hot pursuit, or the infamous "Horse Armour" shenanigans for The Eldar Scrolls. As far as Capcom are handling DLC, in my eyes it stinks like Satan's jockstrap, so watch the video, dear reader, and let me know your thoughts.

Even if you're a fan.....you can admit it extracts the urine ever so....go on....you know i'm right.
