Ubisoft and Techland have announced Call of Juarez: The Gunslinger for PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, and PC. Before you even think to ask, the answer is "yes" -- they're returning to the Wild West. No more of that modern-day cartel stuff.

The video above is a live-action trailer that doesn't reveal much. In The Gunslinger, you'll play as a bounty hunter who is a bad enough dude to go after Billy the Kid, Pat Garrett, Jesse James, and other outlaws. The Concentration Mode mechanic is back again and will allow you to "unleash a flurry of bullets while dodging others." Uh huh. That certainly sounds like Call of Juarez.

Other than that, Ubisoft also teased the inclusion of a skill system without providing any specifics. The series seems to have gone downhill, and I have to imagine the scope of this title won't be as ambitious as prior installments, but it can't be worse than the last one, right? Don't answer that.

Preview: Call of Juarez: The Gunslinger is ... arcadey?

So it seems that Call of Juarez's brief stint in the modern era is over with. Goodbye and good riddance, I say. Returning to the old west setting of its series heritage, Call of Juarez: The Gunslinger aims to bring an arcade flair all its own. Does it actually work, though?more

Boy, The Hong Kong Massacre sure looks like Hotline Miami

Hotline Miami by way of Stranglehold or any other John Woo flick, at least. Which is appropriate for the setting. Though I'm also reminded of Michael Mann's Miami Vice movie for some reason. I guess it can't exactly be Hotli...more
