E3 starts early for Midway

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.

Looks cool. I was kind of impressed by the demo, even though the framerate could been better. But I'm pretty sure they will fix that before release.

I wasn't very impressed with the trailer. It seemed like the story tried to sound intelligent and failed miserably, and the few bits of gameplay looked bland. I don't like games where bullets do nothing to stagger or otherwise influence enemies until their health meter finally drains.

Haha, the story looks ridiculous :)

well... the trailer was pretty crap (especially the start), but the game looks fun and that's what matters. The demo was pretty cool, and if that is anything go by the final games should be worth buying...

isn't this a follow up to one of the earlier area 51 games?
Demo was ok. It's the story that i'm worried about

Why not release it earlier or after Halo 3.
Bad Timing of release date.

Maybe they're banking on Halo 3 shortages. I can't imagine myself buying this when Halo 3 comes out...

with regards to release near halo,its gonna be a good move i see.
people play halo,complete it then think i need more FPS,then they go for blacksite.
maybe a theory they used.

but i think this game is gonna rock anyways,the demo was awesome.i love fast paced fps.loads of fun

looks like a crazy game...me likes it

didnt like how they put real world video in this trailer for a VIDEO GAME. video games are for entertainment, shouldnt be used to remind us of how messed up our lives are. but yes about the game; the demo seemed like the kind of basic FPS, run and shoot aliens and the occasional cinematic. could be fun for a bit then starts to get boring. might rent dis though.

Hundreds of updates from that downsized E3? ^^

Can't wait for the day to come that xbox games play as smooth as ps3 games. frames per second wise.

Que?? You mean the other way - 30F/S for PS3 against 60F/S for X360

Woah, September? They better release it reasonably early in the month then, otherwise it'll be totally overshadowed by Halo 3.

It seems midly interesting to me, nice cinematic feel to some in-game bits.

reminds me of Killzone2

    Nietzsche @KORNdog: exactly, it’s nothing short of predatory. It’s literally using reasearch about the chemical reactions of the human brain to get people to spend more money than they want to (8 Hours ago)

    KORNdog @Nietzsche: i agree. There os no justifiable reason to have the randomised element of loot boxes. The stuff should just be avalible in a store and you pay for what you want. (8 Hours ago)
