    Split/Second takes on Blur 

    Crack open your piggy bank and count you cheddar. This May promises to be a big month for video game releases. Two big names taking the main stage are Lost planet 2 and Red Dead Revolver. But not to be out done, The racing genre has had some steroids and a dose of adrenaline pumped into it that re-invigorates racing games in a way we’ve never seen. Both games are done my different studios and involve demolishing your opponents in both single player and multi-player. It may seem that these games are similar but they are both VERY DIFFERENT.

    BLUR is a heavily combat oriented game that takes real cars and gives them kick-ass weapons that create sonic booms, plasma blasts and shields that send your opponents into racing heaven. I’ll be so bold as to describe it as Super Mario Cart on some kind of illegal substance. This game was created  by Bizarre and they really made the attacks look colorful and damaging in a way that can only be described as beautiful chaos. You can play the beta now on x-box 360. The game hits stores on 5/28

    Split/Second is a game that uses a very detailed physics engine that focuses on destroying your opponents by controlling the environment around you.  You can destroy plains, gas station, trains, and bridges. You do this by gaining “power plays” The detail in the destruction to both the environment and the car wrecks are beautiful. The camera angles and the in-game play is extremely detailed and gritty. The demo should be available very soon. The game hits stores on 5/18

    If you ask me, I’m looking forward to both games but If I had to buy one, it would be Split/Second. I haven’t played either so i’m just going on reviews and what I’ve seen so far.What can I say, I’m a sucker for beautiful graphics and destructible environments. The game play looks a bit better than Blur and the attacks seem more realistic. I hope everyone plays both of these games and forms their own opinions.

    Transformers: The Prequel….kinda 

    Before Michael Bay blew lots of sh*t up. There was a kick-ass 80’s cartoon based on the popular Transformers Franchise. I think its pretty safe to say that without that great 80’s cartoon, we would never see Megan Fox leaning over on a motorcycle in Transformer: Revenge of the Fallen. Now thanks to Activision, we’ll be going back even further than the old cartoon in the new video game, titled, Transformers: War for Cybertron. This game takes place on Cybertron and the story focuses on the end days of the war. Right before the Autobots call Earth their new home. Visually, this game has amazing graphics and the character designs for both, The AutoBots and The Decepticons are truly stunning. Don’t expect to see designs that are inspired by the Michael Bay films. The team at Activision were inspired by the old 80’s cartoon designs but with a more updated look. The look is being so well received by the Franchise owners, Hasbro, that they’ll be releasing a toy line based on the video game character designs. Even the world of Cybertron looks unreal. It looks just like a war devoured robot planet would look!  Activision wanted to make the game controls very seemless between playing as a robot and playing in it’s transformed state. With a click of a button, you change to transformed. I know what you’re thinking, “Oh no! now I have to learn a whole new set of controls because I transformed!” Wrong! Once you transform, the controls stay unchanged. Each button still controls the same action. Also be ready for your copy of Call of Duty to sit on the shelf and be berried in cobwebs. Transformers is getting in the MMO (massive multi-player) game. Transformers: War for Cybertron will feature a robust MMO gaming experience where the player can design their own Autobot or Decepticon. You can play as four different classes of Transformer and the game includes everyone’s favorite MMO game types. Such as Team Deathmatch, Conquest, and Count Down to Extinction which seems really cool! From the gist of the MMO trailer, I think that game mode you just have to blowup the other team with a bomb that’s being tossed around like a hot potato. Transformers: War for Cybertron, hits stores, June 22nd for all major game consuls and it promises to be a kick-ass ride.
