With all the info we got from X10, we can’t forget the new screenshots for Ruffian Games’ sci-fi sandbox shooter Crackdown 2. Without even looking at the added hype Crackdown received due to the inclusion of the Halo 3 multiplayer beta, the game was a critical and commercial success.
Now, taking lessons learned from the first game and kicking up the superhero-esque themes to the next level, Crackdown 2 looks ready to emerge as one of the top XBox 360 exclusives of 2010. Now featuring zombie freaks as opposed to the relatively “normal” enemies of the last game, the Agency needed to turn up the juice with some new weapons, armor and vehicles.
Dune buggies with added turrets, overcharged gauntlets for hand to hand combat and even a fully armed helicopter now help protect the streets of Crackdown 2. Take a look at some of the screens just released from X10 and of course stay tuned right here for more coverage of Crackdown 2.
The Definition of “Geek Chic.” Comic books, sci-fi movies, Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, Xbox 360, Nintendo DS, Lord of the Rings and more all rolled up in a Diesel wearing, club going socialite package. Having worked in both advertising and television, John is a lifetime writer always being a part of the creative process. John knows the television world between his experience on being involved with the production process of over two hundred episodes of prime time tv and being a self admitted media whore.
Yes he has a weakness for trash tv, Michael Bay-esque action movies and the raunchy teen comedy as well. Never try to debate the Original Star Wars Trilogy versus Star Trek with him because the Holy Trilogy always comes out on top. Having partied with movie stars to Playboy centerfolds, John is somehow always able to find someone’s inner geek.
The simplest rules that John lives by is to have fun and doing what makes him happy. There’s no shame in being a geek. Play Halo, read Spider-Man and proudly display the whole series of Neon Genesis: Evangelion on your DVD rack.
