Gouki.com got a demonstration of the Furious 4 that is a radical departure from past Brothers in Arms games.
Gearbox software has been busy. Not only have they resurrected the Duke, but they've been working on an Aliens game and this new take on the Brothers in Arms universe. Randy Varnell of Gearbox assures us that we haven't seen the last of Matt Baker, the company will make a return to the traditional Brothers in Arms WWII shooter in "the future"... whenever that is, we'll let you know. In the meantime, enjoy this trailer of the Furious 4.
Furious 4 will be a four player co-operative shooter with skill upgrades (think Borderlands, in fact I'm pretty sure I saw the logo for Mordecai's Fast Hands skill in there). Unlike Borderlands, teammates don't just pop in and out of the world, instead there are individual missions at the end of which you and your cohorts will be given a summary of the destruction you've caused. Inquiries as to whether there will be a competitive multiplayer as well were met with "no comment".
The four characters have different skills, for instance Montana (the heavy gunner of the group) had a bear trap that would ensnare enemies temporarilly, allowing your teammates to pick them off. The trap could be upgraded to include a grenade, for even more fun and destruction.
To be sure, Brothers in Arms: Furious 4 was not what we were expecting and it's not a direct sequel to the previous games, it's more of an alternate universe take on the series. That said, Furious 4 is looking like fun so far. Stay tuned to Gouki.com for updates as we hear more about this game.
Here is the full press release:
UBISOFT® REVEALS BROTHERS IN ARMS FURIOUS 4™
LOS ANGELES – June 6, 2011 – Today, during its press conference at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Ubisoft® unveiled the development of Brothers in Arms Furious 4™. Developed by Gearbox™ Software and published by Ubisoft, Brothers in Arms Furious 4 is the latest iteration of the best-selling Brothers in Arms® franchise that spins the series in a new direction. The game will be available worldwide for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft®, the Sony® PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Windows® PC in the first half of calendar year 2012.
Set in World War II, Brothers in Arms Furious 4 is a brutal first person shooter that offers an exciting campaign mode playable with up to four players in co-op, as well as an extensive competitive multiplayer mode. The story follows four fierce and fearless warriors chasing the Führer himself. As one of the Furious 4, players will use special weaponry and unexpected combat abilities to fight the greatest threat the world has ever faced: an experimental Nazi army conceived in secret by the Third Reich.
“The Brothers in Arms franchise has been renowned for its gritty direction that has dropped players into the middle of World War II,” said Adam Novickas, U.S. director of marketing at Ubisoft. “With Brothers in Arms Furious 4, Gearbox brings the action to a whole new level filled with unexpected twists and over-the-top battles that are sure to please new players and fans alike.”

Thanks to Randy Varnell and his crew for the demo.
Had no idea this game was in the making until recently, and damn it sounds great, I would really love to enjoy more info and screens and gameplay.
The game has been in development since 2008 and constantly pushed back with more and more BS. The schedualed release date is sometime this year (TBA) on ps3,wii and the 360. Earthquake fucks some shit up in Chicago and you play as this dude who is trying to survive, and find his chick. you have to evade hostile people who are stealing shit, somehow keep hydrated and not get killed by the crumbling city. The game is first person, you control a guy named Adam, your searching the city ofcourse to stay alive and find food and weapons, but you can also threaten people with a empty gun to get our way. You can also drive abandoned cars in third person view. Their isnt much video and images on the game, but from what little we have, I already love the idea. What is important is that they dont fuck up mechanics, or end up having a boring ass game. Also a game like this might actually be a lot more fun on wii because of motion control, but if theirs some sort of online play I will be getting it for ps3 instead. Links below to info, videos and pictures, what do you guys think? Hopefully you guys have some more info on this game x,x
E3 Trailer (Judging by the video, I HOPE theirs random environment events, like shit crumpling away or crazy people going apeshit, simply, maybe RDR style in some sense)
beta alpha screenshots (better than nothing)
Not your normal best of list, but who really gives a sh....

My impressions of the Ubisoft keynote speech.
When Ubisoft started out their keynote, I wasn't quite sure what I was watching. I thought maybe I'd changed the channel and turned on the Stoner's Channel - but I hadn't; Ubisoft was just showing off Children of Eden, a super-trippy game that is supposed to be (I think) the spiritual successor to Rez. I might have been impressed, but I can't tell, because I had no idea what I was seeing. It was trippy - I'll give it that - but all I saw was some guy wailing his arms around and colorful blocks doing crazy things. I don't know about this Ubisoft; I mean, it was cool on the PS2, but really?
Next they showed Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood with a demo that looked amazing. Mind you I've never played either of the first two Assassin's Creed games, but this demo automatically made me want this game to come out already. There was just something about it that was so cool looking. In my opinion it seemed to have a bit of a Prince of Persia feel to it with the acrobatics and combat, but that's certainly nothing bad at all.
Then they showed Shaun White Skateboarding, which - okay, I really like the concept of this game; I think it sounds really cool to skate around and change the world. I think this has the potential to be the next-gen version of what a really cool Tony Hawk game could have been. To be completely honest I'm quite excited about this game, and that's saying a lot since I don't care much about skateboarding games.
Battle tag - what? That's not a video game at all. I'm not even really sure what to say about this - but I can only assume that you wouldn't care about it if I knew how to explain it. Where is the 'video' part of video game here?
Innergy? Wait a minute - where have I seen this before? Oh, I know...this was the Vitality Sensor that Nintendo showed off last year. Yes, that's right; you put it on your finger and it reads your vital information. Mind you it doesn't look there's any real game here. Where the battle tag crap lacked the 'video' part of video game, this lacks the 'game' part of video game. Okay, so moving on...
Next Ubisoft showed a couple Kinect games. One was Motion Sports, which dare I say is Wii Sports for the 360. I literally saw nothing here that impressed me, and nothing really that looked new at all. I'm not sure why Ubisoft expects anyone to care about this, especially since Microsoft had a nearly identical game they showed during their keynote speech. I'll pass.
Ugh, another fitness game?! They already showed off Your Shape: Fitness Evolved during the Microsoft keynote, but apparently they thought it was good enough to show again. Well guess what - they were wrong. In fact it wasn't worth showing off the first time. Next.
There was a little video for Raving Rabbids Travel in Time. None of this video was gameplay, so I'm having a hard time figuring out what kind of game this is. It's exclusively for the Wii, so my expectations are next to nil. But to be fair, I can't really say anything for certain, because all they showed was a gameplay-free trailer.
Ghost Recon: Future Soldier - this is what everyone wanted to see. And I'm glad to say that it didn't disappoint. There was a demo that looks freaking amazing. I really can't wait for this game to come out! I wasn't the least bit interested in this game before, but after seeing it in demo form...wow. There's a nice mixture of stealth and action. The graphics looked amazing, and this isn't even the final build. Just wow. The demo left me speechless.
They showed a demo of Driver: San Francisco next. I'm just...well, I remember the old Driver games; they weren't that great. Driver was a series that I was fine with being gone. I felt no need to see it brought back. But since it is being brought back, it looks...meh. You drive around doing cool chase scenes. It's pretty much what you'd expect, and it doesn't look like it offers much more than what you'd expect. This might be the perfect type of game for someone, but not me.
They showed a trailer of a game that is being called Project: Dust right now. The trailer doesn't really tell you much about the game, so I'm not sure of much about it. The premise was certainly interesting; it appears to be about some ancient civilization trying to survive or something of that nature. I'm not sure what genre of game this will be, but I think that if the gameplay can match the premise, it might just end up being pretty good.
Rayman has been gone for a while, so I'm surprised that we got to see Rayman: Origins. There's something you must know about this game if you didn't see the gameplay: it's freaking cute as hell, but that's not at all a bad thing. It really does look like it's a very charming game, and I think it looks like it could be one of those games that is just pure fun, which is something I've been wanting for a while.
ManiaPlanet isn't a game at all; it's a platform to allow people to make their own games. TrackMania is something that has been out for a while, and it's been quite popular. Now it's being branched out into a whole platform that will have TrackMania, ShooterMania, and QuestMania (racing, FPS, and RPG accordingly). This has that whole LittleBigPlanet feel to it where it's focusing on the gamers as creators. The problem I have with this is that most of us aren't game designers, and I don't want to have to sift through loads of crap from artistic wannabes to find one gem.
Apparently there's a Michael Jackson game of some sort. I don't know; some people came out and danced to Beat It. Whatever. Just Dance: Michael Jackson? Meh. I'd rather not Just Dance if it's all the same to Ubisoft.
Yeah, Ubisoft's keynote was just horrible. There were a few interesting games, and a few great looking games, but...there was just too much that disappointed me. I'm feeling that Ubisoft is becoming one of the major advocates of casual gaming. With things like Innergy in the pipeline, I'm just...I can't get behind Ubisoft on this. Terrible. Tsk, tsk.
Cloaking and Beta?
What do we have here? New Ghost Recon Future Soilder live action Trailer? Still not alot of info on this game yet, other than it will be set in the "near future" and might you might have the ability to cloak your "Ghost" I was a big fan of the last Two Recons on the 360. I wasn't too big on the originals but im excited for this game and some more upcoming news! And ohh yea there's gonna be a multiplayer beta in the summer!!!!! All you need is a copy of Spinter Cell Convitction to get in and thats it. (Similar to the Reach beta with ODST) But check the trailer out, its not in game but it is pretty sweet!

More info on a game we don't know much about.
Brief History. Its been a few years since "I Am Alive" has been released , with shotty release dates and no real gameplay footage. A long witht he game changing studios halfway and essentially re-designing the game , little hope was left.
With little info being better than none, Jade Raymond the Ubisoft Torronto Managing Director says the game WILL be released this year. Last year Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said the game will come out atleast in April 2011. Here's the kicker. Jade Raymond also said the game will be Digital Downlaod only and for PSN/XBL. A long with that statement, the publisher "doesn't have much faith" in the game. What does this all mean? When changing studios and re-vamping the game did it still not seem enough? Or in the end did it turn out to be nothing special? I was really into the survival idea inside the city and peopel working with you/betraying you. Leave a comment below on what you think of this bit of news.

Beginning Feb. 15, Xbox LIVE will deliver four back-to-back releases of the best downloadable games, with one new title a week.
Microsoft always has a great lineup of Xbox Live Arcade titles every E3 for their "Summer of Arcade". It looks like they're trying to do the same thing with CES and "House Party". There are some interesting titles here; an Alan Wake sequel delivered as a XBLA game instead of a full retail product. I liked the original despite poking fun at it's oft-delayed status. There's also Ubisoft's "I Am Alive" which originally was to be a full retail product from what I can tell. They seemed to have reduced the scope to allow it to actualy get released. GoukiJones got to play Warp at PAX, he probably doesn't remember, but it's a clever title that allows your character to warp from place to place, including inside people to make them... uh... explode. Nexuiz is the lone newcommer here, so I'm interested to see what that is about.
Here's the lineup from Major Nelson:
Alan Wake’s American Nightmare (Microsoft Studios): In this brand-new stand-alone experience, Alan Wake fights the herald of darkness, the evil Mr. Scratch. A thrilling new storyline, hordes of creepy enemies, serious firepower and beautiful Arizona locations, combined with a fun and challenging new game mode, make this a must for Alan Wake veterans, and the perfect jumping-on point for new players. Can you survive until sunrise?
I Am Alive (Ubisoft): One year after a worldwide cataclysmic event has wiped out most of human civilization, a man struggles for survival. Faced with an insecure, decaying and hazardous world, he scours a desolated city, searching for his long-lost wife and daughter. Survive the suffocating, murky streets covered in dust. Climb the teetering remains of last-standing skyscrapers to reach breathable air and find untouched resources. Explore the crumbling ruins of a once-thriving metropolis. Discover a changed human condition, punctuated by distrustful survivors, dangerous armed gangs and victims in need.
Nexuiz (THQ): For centuries, the Kavussari and the Forsellians have waged war. They have a fragile truce but, because of their seething disgust of each other, still pit warriors against each other in arenas rather than on the fields of war. These episodes of lethal combat are broadcast throughout the galaxy as entertainment — a spectacle known as The Nexuiz Competition — an arena-based first-person shooter where you can alter the rules of the match and the laws of physics while dominating opponents in ever-changing hostile environments.
Warp (EA): “Warp” is a puzzle-based stealth action game where you play as Zero, a lovable-yet-lethal orange alien with a big score to settle! Captured by the villainous Commander and imprisoned in his underwater facility, Zero must plan his ultimate escape using his arsenal of alien abilities — warp, frag, echo, swap and launch.
GoukiJones & FnJimmy talk about Ubisoft & some random Jimmy walks thru the shot. E3 2013. Some fuckin' nuab walking thru the shot.
Shout out to Ubisoft, thank you for allowing us to raid your booth & check out all of the games. Well we didn't see Watch Dogs, but I don't need to waste time at E3 on a game that is coming out in the next couple of months. We saw it during the press conference & it pretty much looked the same last year & was still on schedule. That demo was going to be basically more of the same.
We saw the Stick of Truth, now everybody remember this was a THQ game last year & was actually supposed to be released in March. Well THQ crashed & Ubisoft got the rights to this game. So I was interested to see how/if any of the game was changed. The last time I saw it was at SDCC. Now you can fight on the outside of instanced fights. Oh man, what am I trying to say. Say you're walking around in the over world, well in South Park you have the option to use a sling shot or whatever they had & take out 1 of the baddies, then run up to the guy next to him, touch him & then go into battle. I don't really know how well that is going to work in the game overall, but it seemed pretty smooth during the demo. BTW this game looks just like the show, it's amazing. Super hype!
AC17, skipped it. Don't care.
The car racing game where you're taking down money trucks. Looks cool. But it's cars, it's bullshit.
We saw the Guitar game. People will never play anything like Guitar Hero again, when you can play with a real guitar & actually learn a skill. It's expensive yeah, but just do what BatRastered says, go to the Pawn Shop & get some Jimmy ass guitar for like $40 bucks & start playing.
The Division was the only really unique thing we saw. Unfortunately it was the same exact demo as the press conference. Maybe there was a little more explained to us, but basically the same shit. This game looks dope, we of course had tons of questions about how the open world & VS stuff works, but they weren't talking about any of that right now. Classic E3. Got some cool swag tho.
The newest trailer for Assassin's Creed III gives a deeper look at the franchise's new hero. Trapped between two worlds, Connor dons the mantle of the Assassin in the fight for justice against the Templars.
Running through the buildings looks cool, but I'm not seeing anything new here. What are your thoughts?
