Daily Gaming Update: January 12th

jmaltz@pnosker.com January 13, 2011 0

Strange to hear from a couple games in today's gaming wrap up.  For one, we've got news about a Sniper: Ghost Warrior sequel in spite of its mediocre reviews.  Also enclosed is some bad news for Nascar fans, a hilarious parody from Bulletstorm, and another trailer from de Blob 2 that will overwhelm you with cuteness.


If there's one thing you can't knock de Blob 2 for it is the sheer amount of adorable packed into its trailers.  This latest one, which showcases the perils of being an air traffic controller, is no exception, delivering a solid two minuts that will leave even the most stone hearted saying "Dawwww".

Activision's first shot at the NASCAR looks like will be a little bit late to the season this year. Gameinformer reports that The Eutechnyx developed NASCAR 2011 has been pushed back to a March 29th release date.  The game was originally scheduled to be released during February 2011.

 

We couldn't get in touch with the reps for Eutechnyx as of the time of this writing to confirm the story.

Bulletstorm is one of those games which is near comic in its level of violence.  Fitting this theme is the new "Last Call" commercial which the team just released.  In and of itself the commercial is humorous, but it will have you in stitches if you recall the old Halo 3 "Remember" trailers.

One of the overhauls in this year's edition of the Fight Night series is a brand new stamina system that more accurately reflects how fighters become tired over the course of a fight.  EA Sports has released a new trailer to show off just how the system works in action.

It isn't frequent that games with mediocre reviews get sequels, but it's happening now.  City Interactive's Sniper: Ghost Warrior, which sold like hotcakes despite average reviews will be receiving a sequel powered by the Cryengine 3 game engine.

Nothing much else was disclosed during the Eurogamer Sweden interview, but we do know that it will release on the PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 simultaneously.  The original has been out on the first two for a while now and it will be hitting the PS3 come February.

When we were in LA six months ago we took a look at a brutally realistic MMA game titled Supremacy MMA.  Although the developers were ready to show off the gameplay mechanics and general concept at the time, they weren't quite ready to make actual gameplay public until today.  A note about the below trailer: this a clean version so that the ESRB didn't come nipping at our heels, actual gameplay is MUCH more violent and blood filled.  You can check out our Youtube channel for the full thing.

Although Supremacy won't feature any licensed fighters, it was announced today that form UFC champ Jens Pulver will lend his likeness and voice to the game.  He's also acting as a combat consultant to Kung Fu Factory to help them replicate true underground MMA.

Supremacy MMA will be released this summer on PS3 and Xbox 360.
