Blacksite on the operating table

Midway sends us additional screenshots of its first person shooter Blacksite: Area 51 already available in the United States for PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. Europe will receive this game in a little bit more than a week (Nov. 30). The Half-Life resemblance is hard to miss, but it manages to keep an inch of originality which helps dissociate it from Valve's classic.

Images of Blacksite: Area 51

Midway releases four new images of Blacksite: Area 51. It's not groundbreaking graphics-wise, but the various interviews of Harvey Smith talking about the political content of the game - and Pipomantis' hysterical monologues, have rasen our interest for the game.

Images of Blacksite

Midway releases six new images of Blacksite: Area 51, the not-really-a-sequel-of the sympathetic Area 51. Yeah, the screens are in a strange ratio, and yeah, it doesn't look mind-blowing, but with a little bit of luck, it could end up as a nice B-series FPS.

E3: Blacksite gameplay

Here comes a gameplay video of the Area 51's new generation sequel. It looks a lot better than last month's playable demo, even if the action didn't seem that frenetic in the portion of level we tried. Don't miss Pipomantis' impressions on his editor's blog !

E3 starts early for Midway

Midway kickstarts E3 and sends us the E3 trailer of Blacksite: Area 51, along with 2 new images. I guess it's a good way not to be lost in the middle of hundreds of updates next week.

Images of Blacksite: Area 51

Midway releases 8 images of Blacksite. Some are nice, some are a bit messy. We'll wait a new playable demo (with a real level and some multiplayer) before expressing any opinion.

Video of Blacksite: Area 51 demo

Midway finally releases its internal Blacksite: Area 51 demo, which the press has been able to try for almost a year from now (and it shows in the framerate, that recalls the first games that used the UE3 before the release of Gears of War). The level is extremely short and you won't kill anything but a few aliens, but it's still very cinematic and teaches the basics of the gameplay. To be brief, it's more of a playable teaser than a demo.

    MrWhite I recently played the original quake in VR, and it almost reminded me and felt like the first time I played that game back in 1996. It brings the tension back to it, and its just really fun. (49 minutes ago)

    MrWhite Not sure why I quoted myself there. (51 minutes ago)

    MrWhite @MrWhite: It can be overcome with time and a bit of diligence. You can build a tolerance and you probably played games that were a cert to fuck you up if you hadn't "VR legs" yet. (52 minutes ago)
