E3: The Trailers – Singularity

By Alec Meer on July 16th, 2008.

My hands can now write ‘E3: The Trailers’ before my brain sends a signal for them to do so. This scares me. I’m going to have to write something really long and self-indulgent next week to compensate for all these blinkin’ videos.

Singularity: the other new game from Raven, and the first time in a near-decade they’re not hooking an FPS onto someone else’s license. But it is, unsurprisingly, an FPS. The trailer (already mentioned in Jim’s post, but figured it was well worth highlighting separately) isn’t giving much away, though if I were to make a knee-jerk judgement – which I do about everything, especially people and types of cheese – I’d say something like ‘FEAR at sea.’ I’m probably waaaaay off, as reportedly it’s got something to do with time-travel. Timeshift at sea, then.

E3: The Trailers – Wolfenstein

By Alec Meer on July 16th, 2008.

(Apologies if all this E3 stuff is bugging you – normal service will resume on Monday, but we wanted to make sure we aggregated all the big PC talking points).

First footage of the new Wolfenstein game, handled by perennial id lackeys Raven – who have much to prove after Quake 4. Though they are also, for the first time since 2000′s Soldier of Fortune, making their own game, the mysterious Singularity. No info on that yet, but we do get this:

Big on the mysticism, clearly – and apparently hero BJ Blaskowitz will have psychic powers of his own. Hnn. Not seeing anything to suggest Raven are straying off their well-beaten dark’n'shooty track, but there’s talk of open world stuff, I hear.
