Another VGA reveal: Spec Ops: the Line photo



As expected, 2K Games revealed a fresh Spec Ops game at the Spike Video Game Awards show. The teaser, beginning with a high-resolution American flag bellowing against a sand-covered background told us instantly that we shouldn’t expect another low-budget entry in the bargain bin series -- Spec Ops: the Line looks like the real deal.

And I thought Tron’s antagonist was hard. The opening of the reveal trailer featured some sort of grizzled army man, saying things to an unseen officer talking of madness and duty. “You still intend to rescue me captain,” he says, “now that you’ve seen what I’ve done. I admit, my methods are … unconventional,” he continues as he pulls something from a ragged corpse. “But they are necessary.”

“You must think I’m a monster. That I’ve gone insane. I came to terms with what I am a long time ago, captain. What about you?”

We should note that this looks close to a simulation-style action title with a, perhaps, Modern Warfare 2 flavor. We saw big action as the protagonist wrecked the side of a building, shredding its windows with hot lead. And this was before he took a tumble into it and was forced to blast its humanoid inhabitants at close range. Check out some stills in the gallery below.

This Splatoon 60fps trailer is just hnnngh

Splatoon came out of nowhere, and it shot into my most anticipated list of 2015. As an unconventional shooter it looks pretty great, and the constant morphing from human to squid looks like it has a lot of value on a tactical level. Although this trailer isn't new, Nintendo has uploaded another version of it that runs at 60fps, so give it a go!more

Far Cry 4's alternate ending only takes a half hour to access

Alternate endings are a fascinating way to put a non-canonical spin on the tales that we know and love. Sometimes it's a silly and light-hearted Pentagon piefight. Others are grim, like Dante taking a bullet to the chest on ...more
