Fragile Alliance Mode in Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days

 In the original game of Kane & Lynch: Dead Men, there was a popular multiplayer mode that was called “fragile alliance.” This mode received great reviews and a lot of popularity. When the sequel to this game was eing made there was no doubt that this mode would be a part of it. Some improvements in the mode were completed. 

The following is a preview of the “fragile alliance” mode from Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days:

“The potential for someone going traitor is always there, whether it be your teammates or yourself. If you do decide to go traitor, you could hang back and silently assassinate teammates — just make sure no one sees you do it. Or you can grab a human shield, keeping your teammates from shooting you by making it crucial for them not to accidentally shoot the buddy being used as a shield. If a teammate shoots a teammate, he can turn traitor, and the guy who gets wounded has a certain amount of time to get his revenge on the shooter without becoming a traitor himself thanks to a function called “yellow card.”

Guinness World Records 50 Best Franchises

Recently, Guinness World Records came up with a list of the 50 best video game franchises. Voted upon by gamers, make sure to check out some of these if you have not yet.

“We decided to take a different approach with this list than we did in the previous edition,”  said a spokesperson for Guinness World Records. “Instead of asking developers, industry insiders and journalists to rank their favorite titles, we approached a different kind of expert: the players themselves! We are confident that this ‘top 50’ more accurately reflects the tastes of the average gamer and not just the critics.”

Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands

Coming out for the many consoles is the game, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands. The consoles it will be releasing for include the Nintendo Wii, the PlayStation 3, the PlayStation Portable, the Xbox 360 and also the PC. This game, that has been published by Ubisoft, is going to be available to gamers starting just a few weeks from now on the day of May 18th, 2010.

The following is a review that has been given to the game, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, specifically for the Wii version:

“Speaking of smooth, the game’s engine runs at a slick 60 FPS, and this first level took full advantage of it as the surrounding environment cracked and crumbled all around the Prince. There was a great bit of destruction in one of the later levels where I had to actually run up the side of crumbling tower, jumping between the tower and a solid wall, in order to reach the topmost platform. Yeah. It was kind of rad.”

Make sure to look into more details regarding this game when the date of May 18th, starts to come nearer and nearer.

Crytek 2 Preview

Coming out for the consoles of the PlayStation 3, the Xbox 360 and the PC is the game, Crysis 2. This game, that has been developed by Cretek Studios and has been published by the well known Electronic Arts, is going to be made available at a date that is still currently being decided but it is going to be some time later in this year. An approximate time frame for the release of this game is during the holiday season of this year.

Until recently, Cretek was keeping this game pretty secretive about not revealing details about the game. After finally being given a try at playing this game, the following is a short preview that has been said about the game, Crysis 2:

“Long gone are the idyllic beaches, rocky outcrops and lush canopy of the jungle that defined both of the company’s biggest games, Far Cry and Crysis. The pitch now is ‘urban jungle,’ with palm trees replaced by traffic lights, beaches swapped for bus stops, and rocky cliffs transformed into skyscraper rubble. Disaster has once more found a home downtown.”

Make sure to look into this game for more details before it releases some time a lot later in the year.
