ZombieCraft: Day 1

Apparently this has been going around for awhile but some Machinima director has picked it up and is making a video every day for the next week about this very interesting game, ZombieCraft.  Basically it takes the zombie mode from the Call of Duty series and the blocky style of Minecraft and combines them together. 

The developers of this mod are a team called modzilla minecraft.

Dead Island Official Trailer

Dead Island is a survival zombie game set on an island somewhere in Papua New Guinea.  It is being developed by Polish video game developer Techland who is most known for their work on the Microsoft title Call of Juarez. 

The trailer looks amazing and does it in a unique way although it is being criticized for depicting the death of a young girl.

Crysis 2 Leaked

Crysis 2 isn't going to be released for about another month and a half but yesterday the full version of Crysis 2 was released online which supposedly includes the full singleplayer as well as multiplayer.  I have no plan to test out whether this is true or not.  It's not currently known who leaked this online but EA released a statement a few hours after the leak was discovered. 

"Crytek has been alerted that an early incomplete, unfinished build of Crysis 2 has appeared on Torrent sites. Crytek and EA are deeply disappointed by the news. We encourage fans to support the game and the development team by waiting and purchasing the final, polished game on March 22. Crysis 2 is still in development and promises to be the ultimate action blockbuster as the series’ signature Nanosuit lets you be the weapon as you defend NYC from an alien invasion. Piracy continues to damage the PC packaged goods market and the PC development community."

As an avid video game player, it sucks to hear this.  Crytek has made some great games and I can only hope this leak doesn't hurt the sales of Crysis 2.  If anything, I hope the attention they get from this causes more sales.

Duty Calls

You may have heard of a newly released free to play game that has been going around called Duty Calls.  The title of this game is purely coincidence and has no relation to a popular game with a similar title, i.e. Call of Duty.  It's a silly shooter that makes of the Call of Duty series in any way it can.  If you haven't already watched the game play for it, you can download and play it for yourself at the official website.  It doesn't take long at all to beat and should be enjoyed for the humor. 

If you're like me and were too lazy to actually download and play it, you can watch the full game here:
