Amy Looks Beautiful, Tender, Grim

IGN are reporting that Amy, Vector Cell’s game that had previously only been confirmed for PSN, has now been spotted on the radar of other formats, including Steam. It’s a game about a zombie contagion and Amy, a little girl who is resistant to it. You play a woman intent on rescuing the titular zombie survivor, who must lead the little girl through dangerous environments. But this woman is not resistant to the infection: she is slowly turning into a zombie and have to deal with it by scavenging medical supplies or hugging Amy herself to stave off the march of zombification for a few moments. There’s a video below.

Alienated: Some New Xcom E3 Screens

We have a map like that in the office, but it shows movements of Melton Mowbray pork pie vans

Xcom, then. Irrational’s upcoming re-imagining of a strategy classic, transplanting all those government men and sinister aliens into a tactical FPS. Will it be any good? We couldn’t say. Alec broke our crystal ball years ago because he thought it was a trackball. Maybe you can help? We had a trailer earlier in the week, and now we have some new screens you’ll find after the jump. Gaze into these screens, reader. Run your hands over your monitor. What do you see?

Driver: San Francisco Has An E3 Trailer Too

Cars: like small living rooms with minds of their own

There hasn’t been a decent Driver game since the original, twelve years ago. We know this. At this point a game breaking that curse would be like an oak tree sprouting from an active landfill, but maybe, MAYBE Driver: San Francisco will manage it anyway. Alec was pleasantly surprised during his hands on, and the new ‘Shift’ mechanic that lets you jump between cars like a ghost with ADD sounds excellently mad. Plus the E3 trailer below made me laugh more than any other trailer this week.

E3 2011 First Look: Skyrim

But no infinite bears.
The largest issue with reporting on what Skyrim is like is I’ve only watched someone else play it. While that’s the norm for the vast majority of what’s shown behind closed doors at E3, in this particular case – a vast, elaborate game with an enormous non-linear world – watching someone else play it is a bit like being on one of those kids’ cars at a themepark. There’s a steering wheel on the front, but it’s going to stick to the track. Short of heckling, “GO LEFT, NOT RIGHT!” in front of an impromptu theatre of journalists (Bethesda always have the most elaborate booths), we were along for a prescribed ride. But a damned fine looking one.

BIA Furious 4: First Screenshots

I’ve posted a gallery of screenshots from the recently-announced Brothers In Arms Furious 4, below. I suspect you might want to take a look after the surprising CG announcement trailer from earlier in the week. The gallery shows chainsaws, blood, jetpacks, lightning powers, mohawks, and blood.

All this images can be clicked for full size.
