Interesting fact for the newsletter, I have labelled it Summer though infact Autumn has officially started… its just not as fast as it will be come September. Its been a quiet past month or two for gaming related news, then we found Global Agenda and decided to try it -at least 9 of us have it now. Now Gamescom 2010 is in full swing, lets see what it has offered us…
Global Agenda, we’ve struggled to say what this game is, it pulls a lot from so many games. The art-style reminds me of Mass Effect (I guess standard sci-fi), yet the PvP of little I have played reminds me of a third person TF2; and then perhaps its only me, but fighting some of the robots and things gives me a System Shock 2 feel.
Guild Wars 2
This is currently on, I haven’t yet managed to catch a video of the Guild Wars 2 live demo yet – its proven to be shy when I am about. You can find some coverage over on the ANet Blog, keep an eye on GWGuru and INCGamers too. We also have regular postings in our GW2 forum.
There are a bunch of walkthrough videos on GT which run you through the race, class, specialty section of character creation and levels 1 through 10. Though character customisation is excluded (for now its just randomised). Necromancer is the 4th playable class, for those potentially interested
I have been watching this though I am still unsure of whether I want it or not, it certainly looks nice – though I half expect GRID2 to be announced right after release New trailer anyway, it certainly looks nice and more complete with this years cars:
I’ve played the demo of Torchlight I, though others have the full version – as the video states there is one thing it really lacks that would (for me) improve it tenfold… multiplayer! Co-op in this case. Seems they are remedying that little problem in this version…
