You know what I’m excited for? Vanquish. At first glance, you could mistake it for a generic third-person shooter, with its Gears-like cover system and tech-sexy space marine character. Then you remember that Platinum Games is making it and, if you’re smart, you leave your doubts at the door.
I played it at E3 and was very pleased with it. It’s fun, it’s fast, and it’s totally mental. Like Gears of War with an adrenaline shot. Just check out the latest gameplay video. If that doesn’t look fun, you’re one jaded old sod.
