We here at ThinkComputers are very avid gamers. So each Friday we will be covering a game that should help you get through the weekend. The games will range from new games to classics that we still love to play. They also are not limited to just PC games either. If you have a game you think we should cover check out the Gaming Friday thread in the forums.
I know most of our Gaming Friday articles have been about games that are just fun, but hey that’s what Gaming Friday is all about! Bulletstorm is no exception to that! The game is all about killing enemies, but not just that performing moves in combos when killing enemies to get a higher score. Bulletstorm is from the same people who did the Gears of War series so you know it is going to be a great game. Read on to find out all about it!
Last year Nyko showed us their Wand+ and Charge Base Quad for the Wii, a Core Controller for the PS3, along with Speaker Com 360 and Intercooler TS for the Xbox 360. Since then, they’ve hit the lab and come up with some new and innovative products. Here’s a look at what you can expect from Nyko in 2011.
To simply put it, Killzone 3 is leagues beyond what Killzone 2 offered. The game moves faster, is more fluid, but it also allows you to hang back, sit in cover with your shotgun or sniper rifle. In other words, it provides great balance for all players. I’ve enjoyed trying different tactics, and if you devote yourself to one style, chances are you will be successful. Whether you hated or loved Killzone 2, or if you’ve never played a Killzone title, Killzone 3 will be worth your time. In the beta alone, the controls are vastly improved over every previous iteration of the series, the gameplay is much more refined, and the unlockables will keep you busy for a long time to come.
