Videogame Trifecta: MechAssault, War for Cybertron, FarCry 3


? This teaser heavily implies that Day 1 Studios, who started out by making the sweet MechAssault games for Xbox, will probably be making a new MechAssault game in the near future. I support this.

? GameTrailers TV had the first footage of Transformers: Fall of Cybertron last night, and you can watch it here. If you don’t want to sit through all 20 minutes in order to get all the FoC news, however, Seibertron summed up the hits: Optimus can control Metroplex. Bruticus has his own level (and a flamethrower).

? I’ve never tried the FarCry games, but I know they’re popular, so I thought I’d put this video for game #3. Am I to assume that you play the surly, knife-toting thugs who hunt down drunk American douchebags? Is this finally a videogame of The Most Dangerous Game? If so, I approve mightily.
