The Syndicate Announcement Trailer

Posted on Sep 29, 2011 04:33:43 PM

Okay, here it is: the first Syndicate trailer. Heavy on the dubstep and men in trenchcoats. Gosh, this makes me realise that the original Syndicate came out in the era before there were generally trailers for games.

- No waving policeman?
- HUD elements at 0:34 look interesting.
- Gosh, they meant that “breaching” enemies thing, at 0:40.
- 0:50: wubwubstep!
- 1:03: a boot stamping on a human face. Forever?
- I like the casually shooting people at 1:16.
- Some men certainly get shot.
- No sign of co-op yet?
- Logo is a bit weak. Looks like Any Old Action Movie font.

Retro Ghost Recon Looks Like a Syndicate Remake

Posted on Sep 28, 2011 06:45:27 PM

The video’s title and characters say “Ghost Recon”. But the style on show screams “the Syndicate game people actually wanted“.

Continuing their release of videos previously seen only by those attending Ubisoft’s E3 press conference, animation house Ludi Factory has shared this “retro” Ghost Recon clip. “It’s a tribute to Syndicate”, the video’s description says, and it’s a pretty one at that.

This isn’t a game, a trailer of an upcoming game or a pitch for an upcoming game. It’s just a cool video.

Mercury Hg

Posted on Sep 27, 2011 09:00:01 AM

Mercury HG is a remake of the PSP puzzle game Mercury Meltdown.


For those not familiar with the 2005 title, you are given the task to move a blob of mercury to reach the finish line in the shortest amount of time possible while keeping the blob 100 percent intact. To do this, you have to tilt the board to move the blob around. You can also collect atoms on the way to unlock levels laid out like the periodic table of elements.

Don’t Feed the Trolls – Official Trailer

Posted on Sep 26, 2011 07:40:43 PM

Don’t Feed the Trolls is a reflex-tester game for the Xbox Live indie.

The screen is divided into four sectors, one for each of the face buttons. When a bear pops up, you hit the button that corresponds to the sector they’re standing in. When a troll pops up, you hit the left stick in that direction to slap it.

Every level, a new type of bear or troll is thrown at you that slightly changes up the gameplay. Okay, okay, it really is just a stupid minigame. But I’ll be damned if it isn’t addictive. This won’t be the type of game that you go back to again and again, but for a buck it’s a nice way to murder an hour. Brian and I both groaned when the developer challenge for this arrived, but it wasn’t so bad. In fact, there was no point where I wasn’t having a good time with Don’t Feed the Trolls. So this gets my endorsement, as there’s nothing at all really wrong with it.

It’s not deep or complex, but it is fun, and that’s what should count. Such a shame, because if I hated it I could have made so many awful jokes, like “This game is Un-BEAR-able” or “I know I get accused of TROLLing but this is ridiculous.” Sigh, so many of my puns are victims of good games.

Light a candle in their honor tonight, and let us mourn.

Check out the official launch trailer for Child of Eden, all set for a September 27 release.

Child of Eden is a unique rail shooter from Ubisoft, where the player’s mission is to save Eden from a virus in order to restore hope and peace.

Child of Eden incorporates fast-paced action, music and the accuracy and fluidity of the PlayStation Move and Kinect system. With either the Playstation Move or Kinect system players can aim and shoot with the flick of the wrist, as well as change weapons at will as they eliminate objects that zip towards them in a variety of environment and game levels.

Additional features include the compatibility with standard PS3 and XBOX 360 controllers. Child of Eden is the “multi-sensory shooter” that will send players diving into a kaleidoscopic matrix of synchronized music and mind-blowing visuals.

Child of Eden thrusts players into the center of a battle to save Project Lumi, a mission to reproduce a human personality inside Eden, the archive of all human memories. As the project nears completion, the archive is invaded by an unknown virus. The Player’s mission is to purify Eden from the virus to restore hope and peace.
