GamesCom 2012 in a nutshell, part 2

Matt Hawkins Contributing Writer, Video Games

Were you able to fully digest round one? Well, time for round two of all the latest game trailers to come from GamesCom, Europe’s answer to E3 and Penny Arcade Expo.

So what’s next? Why, yet another look at Crysis 3, this time it’s clearly inspired by Predator multiplayer mode…

Sticking with sci-fi, there’s Star Trek: The Game, based upon the upcoming brand new flick. If there’s any game I’m dying for multiplayer hijinks, this is it. All, sneaking up and giving people Vulcan nerve pinches from behind and stuff…

EA has a sizable presence at the show, not surprisingly. And back to multiplayer, here’s how that part of the game looks like in the latest Need For Speed update, Most Wanted. Which is officially in the hands of those who created the Burnout franchise…

Hey, they’re making another Army of Two! But The Devil’s Cartel appear to have four characters this time. Why not the obvious title change? Also, more multiplayer action, yay.

Oh, and another dose of Dead Space 3, along with you know what. I’m beginning to understand why so many are becoming so sick of such titles…

Now might be a good time to bring up the franchise that Dead Space is trying to ape. I actually got the chance to give the E3 build not long ago, and was might impressed. Unfortunately, it’s so far removed from the rest of the series that fans are going to hate on this something fierce…

It would appear that the Devil May Cry reboot, also has Dante’s brother, Vergil. Surprisingly, he doesn’t look like the other guy in Twilight

And finally, we have yet another lone new IP at the show; Remember Me, which appears to be Capcom’s answer to Mass Effect, Deus Ex, and a bunch of other games. Or as one YouTuber put it best: “Watch Dogs with nice ass”
