You may have noticed that most of the games that are set in an older period are having more success than a game that is set nowadays for example or even than the one that are set in the future.
I am a fan of these games mainly because usually developers have a strong ability to create the game and the story with a perfect time setting. Rockstar is a more recent example with their L.A. Noire story. L.A. Noire is set in the 1940's Los Angeles and they had a specific department where their main mission was to gather as much information as they can about the 1940's Los Angeles (buildings, cars, people, design, fashion, everything). They finished by doing a great job and i may put L.A. Noire on my favourite games list. But as i said i am a fan of this kind of games. Some of you may like the games that are set somewhere in future (which are mainly sci-fi). These kind of games are also good to learn more history. L.A. Noire had a nice feature ... everytime you went beside a famous building in Los Angeles, a message would pop out in which you were finding out more about that building. Also i find it extremely interesting to see how people were living in those times, the clothes they were wearing, the cars they were driving and to make a comparison to nowadays and see how much the world evolved.
We are getting closer to the launch of Hitman Absolution which will take place in November this year. We waited so much for this game and the developers finally announced a month ago that the fifth game in the Hitman series will be released on November 20, 2012 on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
The Hitman series doesn't need to many presentations since there has been even a movie made after the game. The movie was also a pretty good one just like the games. Hitman in my opinion redifines with every released game the term of tactical shooter. The way you must find clues and finish the mission is nowere near close to L.A. Noire. Of course they are two different games and not only because of the main characters (a paid assassin and a detective) but still ...
The fans of the game had to wait for six years to play another Hitman game. But i think the waiting will worth it.
Io Interactive stated that the action will take place in the United States. A more detailed location is Chicago. Also, Hitman: Absolution will be easier to play (can't imagine that and i hope it won't be easier to play since this is actually the main reason why many are playing Hitman, for it's mistery and for the way you must find clues and ways to finish the mission).
Well here we are, entering the 90's with our article series about Game Releases by EA Sports. Every year bought something new to the gaming industry. Well EA Sports managed to introduce in 1990 their first boxing game. Still to date there are not many boxing games or not as much as the football games and NFL games.
In 1990 people loved Skate and Snowboarding games since at that date EA Sports released the second Skate game and the first Snowboarding game. No need to mention that the most loved sport in USA has been in EA Sports's plans since the beggining and still is but under another name (John Madden Football then, Madden NFL now).
Anyway let's get to the games. Here they are:
1. Low Blow
2. Ski or Die
3. Skate or Die 2
4. John Madden Football (1990)
'Game Releases' by EA Sports is back with the 1989 episode. This year includes the first release of John Madden Football later known as Madden NFL. Well since then EA chosed not to release the game on PC anymore but it's nice to see a little part of the history of EA Sports games.
Here they are:
1. John Madden Football
2. Lakers versus Celtics
3. Indianapolis 500
So here it is. The third part of 'Game Releases by EA Sports'. This time we have a basketball game and a hockey game. Both of them introduced something new to the gaming industry and were considered revolutionary at that time.
