E3 2017 – Extinction Preview – What Big Teeth You Have (PS4)

[embedded content] When I first saw Extinction my reaction was that it looked extraordinarily similar to Attack on Titan, which seemed to make the developers presenting it slightly uncomfortable. Obviously, every game wants to be able to be identified on its own merits, but I meant it sincerely as a compliment. I absolutely loved the recent Attack on Titan game and the fast-paced action against massive and monstrous enemies seems to be mimicked here in its own unique way. The goal in Extinction is to save humans from the oncoming evil. Ground combat is essentially a hack and slash game against regular sized enemies, but Avil, the game’s main character, can also rapidly run up walls to easily get to the top of the Ravenii, the massive ogre-like creatures that you see in the trailers. If there are no buildings nearby you can always run up the actual monster itself too, which will be necessary because the only way to take them out is to cut off their heads.

E3 2017 – Dead Alliance Preview – Use the Horde (PS4)

[embedded content] We’ve all played first-person shooters. Team Deathmatch. Capture the Flag. Zone control. Every one of these modes is popular to almost every gamer in some form or another. One side pitted against the other in a fight to victory. Many games have done a variety of things to try and make this dynamic more interesting. Various abilities for characters. Unique parts of the map that can turn the tides. Dead Alliance adds zombies. Though the two teams may be taking on one another, the maps are crawling with undead, mostly harmless at first though they will take a bite if you get too close. These zombies present an interesting challenge in positioning, as strategies, like posting up and waiting for an opponent to round a corner, can quickly be ruined by the hordes of decaying flesh around you. It’s a brilliant solution to camping in first-person shooters, but it’s not all that the zombie hordes in Dead Alliance are good for. There are a variety of character abilities called zMods that will actually make the zombies work for you. The Enrager makes a single zombie super powerful and sends them running towards the nearest opponent. The PAM grenade turns READ…
