Endweek News – Assassin’s Creed lawsuit not quite finished yet, What is this E3 thing?, a new Gears of War and some truly awesome videos!

It is that time of week where once again I delve into the grim and gritty business of video game news. It’s a cut-throat world out there, a game eat game world. A world in which only the fittest and most awesome games survive. And Call of Duty of course (OOoooh! ZING!). But seriously, it’s not really that bad (well not for everyone) and we’ve got some pretty interesting bits and pieces of news to regale you with today. Also I want to make it clear that the above video is indeed sort of relevant to this post as you shall find out later (if you read through this!)

So, what’s new Gamers?

Midweek News – Guild Wars swapping Realms, Some DLC, Some Trailers and our Song of the Week!

Interesting news seem to be a little slow lately so I have decided (seeing as I missed last Sunday) to include MMGaming’s Song of the Week in this news post. Why news has been slow I can’t really say but I’m going to assume it’s to do with either me not picking up on interesting stuff or that there is a sort of lull in news now that PAX East is over. Guess we just need to wait to see if it picks up again.

11 Reasons to get Prototype 2

If you are someone who is undecided about getting Prototype 2 then I have here a trailer which may just convince you to get it. The game comes out on the 24th of April so you still have some time to decide (even if the trailer doesn’t convince you).

As someone who wasn’t thinking of getting the game, I have to say… Some of the stuff in the trailer is pretty fucking cool… It’s nice to see so many inventive ways to kill enemies using explosions and massive red tentacles that fire out of your arms.

Air Buccaneers – Alpha gameplay trailer

If you’ve been needing any encouragement to try out the rather wonderful team-based mutliplayer Air Buccaneers then you should definitely check the trailer after the jump, which shows you some of the gameplay and what the game looks like.

Overall it does look really rather excellent and, as Tim found out during one of the Fans vs Devs battles that Ludocraft have hosted, the game is really good fun. It is a team game of course and requires working together, which will always be a problem with people from the internet, but I think this game is a real winner and you should definitely have a think about giving it a try!

Far Cry 3 gameplay

About 5 minutes of gameplay from Far Cry 3 have sneaked onto the internet leaving in it’s wake a series of “Ooo that looks cool”‘s and “Aaah another generic shooter”‘s.

Well, that’s how I felt when I was watching it. No doubt, the game is very pretty and the gameplay certainly looks fast paced and fun. But I imagine that’s how it feels to play Modern Warfare 3. I mean while it looks cool and there are some pretty damn nifty moments where you go “Daaaaayyuuum!” it doesn’t look like it really has much innovation or does anything particularly interesting.

Max Payne 3 trailer

A second trailer has come our way from Rockstar Games for upcoming Max Payne 3. This particular trailer features a lot of what appears to be in-game footage and a serious voice-over explaining in a serious tone just how serious this serious situation is.

For serious! Why so serious?

*Cough* Anyway, yes check it out after the jump!
