Checkpoint: VGA 2010 Reveals & Teasers

The 2010 Spike VGA show was on last night. I didn’t catch much of it. I caught some chick making TWSS said jokes and Neil Patrick Harris playing with a rooster.

Like many, all I care about are the game trailers teasers and announcements. Thankfully, GameTrailers.com was quick to update their site with the trailers as they were released.

Most of them were CG or lame, so I filtered and picked the noteworthy ones for this post.

These are my top 8:

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception

The Third BioShock Game Was Announced

posted in: Game News 0

But they didn’t call it BioShock 3. They’re calling it BioShock Infinite and it will be out in 2012 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. There’s no in-game footage for public consumption yet, but there is a pretty CG teaser.

At first glance it looks like BioShock in the sky. According to previews and interviews, it will feature an A.I. partner named Elizabeth whom you’re trying to rescue from this floating city of Columbia.

I can’t say I’m excited yet, because there’s nothing to get excited about. There’s a new BioShock game coming out and it’s coming out in 2012 — that’s a long way’s away.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Multiplayer Teaser Seems Very Familliar

posted in: Game News 0

The marketing ramp up for Black Ops begins with a multiplayer teaser.

Looks very familiar, but there are subtle differences like a cleaner looking interface, new kill streaks, smiley face reticles etc. But, the big reveal is the inclusion of saved replays.

I’ll quote my NeoGAF post:

Kudos to Treyarch for bringing the community features to the franchise. I don’t understand why IW never did any of these things. WaW brought online stat tracking and now they’re bringing replays.

So if we continue this pattern: MW3 will have none of these and the next Treyarch production will have their “Forge” mode?

I’m actually looking forward to the September 1 multiplayer reveal. It’ll be interesting to see what they’ve tweaked.
