“The fact EA chose to unveil the world premiere of Crysis 2 to a throng of journalists at a swanky shindig at the Tribeca Grand in the heart of New York City is no coincidence. Taking place several years after the original game, Crysis 2 brings the conflict against the alien invaders from the dense tropical jungles of the Philippines to the decimated urban jungle of the Big Apple. It’s a move that’s designed to change the pace and give players a stronger emotional connection to the catastrophic events that unfold in the game.”

“Those who bow down before the altar of Samus Aran may have been enthusiastic about recent news of the Metroid Prime trilogy’s upcoming three-in-one re-release on the Wii with full motion controls implemented across the board. However, word from the E3 camp this week about a new Metroid game in the works for Nintendo’s console – one that’s being made by the boob and blood-spray-loving staff at Team Ninja, no less – is raising more than a few eyebrows and has us salivating for Samus’ next interstellar adventure set to launch in 2010.”
