Wot I Think: F.3.A.R

Dance, DANCE!
F.3.A.R. has leapt into our lives with a butcher’s hook in its hand and a glint of innovative asymmetric co-op in its eye. But does it chill the blood, or simply apply a damp rag to our fevered brow? Allow me to turn dramatically to the camera and tell you Wot I Think.

Scare Tactics: Fear 3 Multiplayer Trailer

F**k off.

A trailer’s been released covering upcoming horror FPS F.E.A.R. 3’s range of innovative multiplayer modes, namely Contractions, Soul Survivor, Soul King (which sounds like “Sulking” to me) and, of course, F**king Run. Turns out F.E.A.R. 3’s getting released on May 24th, just a couple of weeks after Brink, which is coming out one week after Section 8: Prejudice. Hmm. That’s unlikely to turn out well for anyone involved.

Ferocious Fettel Footage From F3AR

Popping a zit had unexpected consequences
Ferocious! That’s right: it’s some single-player footage of F.E.A.R. 3‘s psychic badman in action. Paxton Fettel will be the second playable character in the third Fear game, and he’s going to be distinctly unpleasant to his enemies, as you can see here. The footage (below) also shows off the results of various telekinetic evisceration procedures. It’s a bit messy.
This way! WooooOOOOooo>>

Attack Of The Gloom: F.E.A.R. 3 Screenshots

Yeah, you did the standing and staring thing maybe a bit too often in the first two games.

F.E.A.R. 3, as Monolith still insist on naming it, is out at the end of March. The March Of A Million Games, as I will now start calling it. Copyright. Trademark. Patent. But what, you scream at the sky, does it look like? Well, if you’ll make your way downstairs to the creepy, poorly lit basement, you’ll find eleven new creepy, poorly lit screenshots.

No F3AR: Not Until May, Anyway

Here is the news about F.E.A.R. 3: it has been delayed. Warner Bros confirmed last night that the spooky shooter sequel would not arrive until May. We are going to assume that is because Day 1 Studios are making it awesome. Also, did everyone know that Jon Carpenter was helping with the cutscenes? I’d missed that somehow, but there it is.

I really liked the original game, but the subsequent stuff has been a bit tedious. I’m rather hoping this, with its superstar plot people and “evolved cover system” might be a bit better. It’s troubling me a bit that the trailers have all been live action rubbish and stuff.

F.E.A.R. 3’s Obligatory Halloween Spooks

Hell, if anyone was going to make an effort for Halloween, it should probably be the studio making FEAR 3. The new trailer is suitable something-curdling. Also, the game has been dated for 25th March 2011 in the UK, and the 22nd everywhere else. Boo. And I mean that in a derisory/commiseratory sense, rather than the Halloween sense.
