E3 2012 – XCOM Enemy Unknown (No, not the shit shooter one, the other one) Gets A Bit Of Trailerage

with one comment

2K Games and Sim City developer Maxis have released a trailer for their forthcoming strategy based XCOM title, XCOM: Enemy Unknown.

As well as cribbing the moniker of the much loved turn based original which was released way back in the nineties, the game also boasts the same third person perspective, strategic gameplay and reserach and development to improve your soldiers, equipment, vehicles and even your home base.

You also get to autopsy aliens too.  Probably.

Though the trailer perhaps doesn’t show off the game in it’s best like (it looks like any other third person shooter really), trust me when I say that the game is shaping up to be a polished and highly enjoyable strategical gem.

The trailer can be seen by clicking on the embed below:

XCOM: Enemy Unknown is due to release on 360, PS3 and PC platforms this October.

E3 2012 – EA Press Conference: Sim City 5 Trailered

leave a comment »

A nice little gem tucked away amongst the sweaty footballers, screaming guns and gory sphincters of EA’s E3 2012 conference, was the first gameplay trailer for Sim City 5 by developer Maxis.

It looks great.  Though, I can’t say i’d be any good at it – i’d build this huge, fucking sprawling metropolis and then marvel at my creation; forgetting of course, to plumb any of the waterworks – starving my newfound city in the process.

Have a look at the trailer and see if you would fair any better than me (of course you will):

Sim City 5 is due on PC in February 2013.
