One of the new things that became popular during seventh generation gaming was drop-in and drop-out co-op. Several games helped pioneer the ability for multiplayer to easily and seamlessly hop into a multiplayer game. Well, Microsoft wants to take that concept to the next level with Crackdown on the Xbox One.
Whether youíre into busting crime or busting zombie skulls, the August Games With Gold offerings for the Xbox 360 should have something for you as the free games promotion offers Crackdown, Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Case Zero.
Crackdown 2 will allow you to create your own custom Agent. One thing about your Agent won't be customizable, though: gender.
Microsoft has long wanted a sequel for the open-world action game, Crackdown. Heck, even we put together a list of things that we would like to have seen from a sequel. Well, after lots of procrastination, a new debut trailer for Crackdown 2 was finally released.
It may not be the mega ton game of the entire expo, but I was happy to finally get a peak at Sucker Punchís infamous. Of course the first screens coming out of E3 make the game look like Killsistence 3 with super powers instead of alien hordes. Thatís OK though, because traversing a city as you develop super powers is a lot of fun.
Apparently Capcom learned its lesson when they released their lagtastic emulation of Street Fighter II Hyper Fighting, as the purpose for the beta is to stress test the network code in preparation of the full release on XBLA and PSN later this year
At GDC this year Realtime Worlds, creators of Crackdown, discussed details of their upcoming game. The first thing to note is that itís very much Crackdown in style, so the disappointment in not getting a sequel is being alleviated by what we are getting.
It looks like Call of Duty 4 couldnít quite beat out Valveís brilliantly designed Portal at the 8th annual Game Developers Choice Awards. The first person puzzler took home top honors as Game of the Year, along with wins in Best Gamed Design and Innovation.
