I can see the marketing behind both Battlefield 4′s “Levolution” and the hash symbol in #Driveclub. I can see the smugness radiating off of them. I’m sure I would feel the same way but they’re just so dumb.
Today, some footage from those to titles came out. Battlefield 4′s “Levolution” was a spectacular showcase of the destruction and interactive elements that DICE are including in their next game.
It looks like a nice mix of player controlled and “scripted” elements. Even if Battlefield 4 doesn’t offer the same level of destruction offered by Bad Company 2, this level of interaction looks to offer more than what Battlefield 3 had to offer.
The Drive Club direct feed footage below is the first of its kind. This is a launch game but we’re just getting direct feed footage now. I was concerned about the game’s progress but this trailer put those concerns rest.
So many of the folks I know (including myself) aren’t planning on picking up a Nintendo Wii U any time soon. So with that in mind, I watched this unboxing video from GiantBomb. It’s 17 minutes long but since it’s GiantBomb, I lapped it up.
In the usual GiantBomb fashion, they disclosed the footage limitations Nintendo requested of them. It’s kinda nuts. 10 minute videos in 30 second chunks?
The Nintendo Wii U launches on November 18th, 2013
Please forgive the lame commentary, it’s the price you’ll have to pay in order to see Gearbox’s upcoming sequel.
Some say it looks like a radical improvement over the first Borderlands. I’m not quite there yet. It looks like a logical progression and nothing mind blowing The co-op flexibility is nice, but again, it looks like a logical step forward.
I was hoping to see more complex bosses and enemy types. I wanted to see more than a horde of bugs that spill green blood.
So far so good, but nothing I’ve seen is convincing me to get this on day one. Dual wielding rocket launchers is the kind of crazy I can get behind though.
Borderlands 2 will debut on September 18th, 2012 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
Here’s some slices of footage from the Xbox 360 build of Battlefield 3. It’s also from the single player and a majority of it takes place at night. It’s not exactly what I was hoping for, but at this point, I just want to see it for myself.
