Mafia 3’s Move To Sixties New Orleans Is Risky But Potentially Rewarding

The Mafia 3 [official site] presentation at Gamescom felt very much like an attempt to hammer home several important changes to the series rather than an accurate representation of the minute-by-minute experience of playing. Given that this was the first public showing of the game, which probably won't see release until the second half of 2016, that's to be expected. The vertical slice shown had…

I Am The Mob: Mafia II, Subjectivity And Story

I wasn't really following the Mafia II is-it-good-or-nob controversy, for the simple reason that I thought it was probably a little bit nob. When the initial reviews came in, there was a clear division between people who thought it was a bit of a disappointment and people who thought it was supa-dupa-fly. To be honest, I presumed that the people who liked it were presumably…

Jimmy’s Vendetta: Mafia II Hits The Streets

We're awaiting our copy of the Mafia II DLC, Jimmy's Vendetta, which we've heard makes the city a little bit more lively. It's a series of assassination missions, taking place in the streets of Empire Bay. Something that might have gone a long way to satisfying all those who got very cross that the world wasn't open enough, had they included it in the original…

Can We Refuse Mafia II Footage?

It seems pretty clear that Mafia II is going to be one of those games where the publisher-released assets are going keep on coming until they flood the internet, burying life as we know it under a series of informative or excitingly-edited game footage clips featuring well-dressed men doing violence. (Because, if you hadn't already realised, dudes are going to get shot.) This latest trailer…

New Mob Of Mafia II Trailers

Ooh, ooh, it's Mafia II. That's the official song. I sing it because there are two more trailers, one of which features an interview with the splendid Director of Creative Production Jack Scalici. He discusses the story, the motivations, and the music. (If you want to read a lot more thoughts from Scalici, be sure to check out my feature on voice direction.) The second…

Mafia II World Non-Exclusive E3 Trailer!

EDIT: Ahem. E3 is starting next week, but we aren't affected by the trifling issues of linear time. So we have for you a world unexclusive reveal of the new Mafia II trailer, The Made Man. This is not the only place you can watch the trailer until it's released properly at E3 next week. Which means we're the same as everyone else. Sigh.

Mafia II: The Enviddening

Mafia II is the year's most anticipated game about watching lavish cutscenes, driving to places and shooting people then watching more lavish cutscenes before driving to places and shooting people. Expect vast quantities of gloss and pizazz from this one. Oooh, I've never written the word 'pizazz' before. It's fun, isn't it? Anyway: I believe our man John 'Giggles' Walker will be presenting you with…

Family Chat: 2k Czech’s Alex Cox On Mafia 2

Last week, I finally got to spend a little quality time with the rarely-seen, much-delayed Mafia 2. While I was there, I made Alex Cox, one of the game's producers, an offer he couldn't refuse. He refused it anyway. So I decided to ask him about the game instead. Read on for the chatty chap's thoughts on the game's excellent music, open world versus linear…

Mafia II Versus The Blues

The new Mafia II trailer (below) shows some neat gangsterism, and has a John Lee Hooker soundtrack. That's going to doom me to a morning of Blues while I get on with writing all the words about videogames. The game itself has been delayed again, apparently, with 2K saying that it won't make the first half of 2010, as anticipated. However, the game is coming…

The Inbetweeny Bits: Mafia II Details

GameTrailers has interviewed 2K producer Denby Grace about the forthcoming Mafia II. They did it on video, so we can watch it, without all the hassle of reading boring old words. Stupid words. It shows off some of the lesser-spoken about features of the game so far - the open world elements. There's discussion of how encounters on the street occur, as well as side…

The Bleak Midwinter: Big Games Slip To 2010

It's going to be a quieter Christmas than we were expecting. A bundle of big-name games have announced in the last few days that they'll no longer be bulging Santa's sack, but instead offering themselves in the colder months of 2010. This year your Christmas tree will not be towering over 2K games BioShock 2, Mafia II, nor Max Payne 3. Indeed they're not alone.…

E3 09: Mafia II Trailer

2K Games have released a story-telling trailer for their open-world historical gangster thriller, Mafia II. This is kind of dark, and I could hardly be looking forward to it more. For a reminder of why we're excited it about this one check out (Czech out? Okay, no) John's extensive preview. There should be a bit more info about this coming from the show, later this…

Bioshock 2 will hit on October 30th in Europe, and November 3rd in the US. It also has a new teaser site. Woo. Mafia II meanwhile has been delayed until…

Sha-Boom Sha-Boom: Mafia II In Game Footage

After a few unofficial leaks, 2K have made sure there's a far more comprehensive set of game footage trailers for Mafia II. Three of them, in fact, which you'll find below. The show the truncated mission that was shown to press behind vast stone doors earlier this month, which show off the three main aspects of Mafia II. There's the walking and driving around the…
