What’s Brewing, The Secret World: a game I want to play but probably never will

The latest MMO endeavor by Funcom (Age of Conan), The Secret World is one of the newest mmorpgs to enter the market with a fresh, modern spin on the genre. Full of guns, chainsaws, urban legends, secret societies, and conspiracies, TSW is a game I’m reluctant to pass up (if only to see an mmo title play out in this gritty, modern world); unfortunately, I can’t justify paying for another monthly subscription…

The Brews: E3 2012 Dead Space 3 Game Demo

This series has always been one that’s on my list of shame (games that I haven’t played but should).  I’m always curious to try games from the horror genre, but lack the constitution to get through them.  I tried playing Amnesia earlier today and it was rough.  Dead Space 3 definitely looks a bit less terrifying than the previous games and a bit more action-packed, which has me hoping that I’ll actually be able to get through it.  Drop-in/drop-out co-op seems promising as well.  And oh yeah, doesn’t it look like Dead Space 3 is doing Lost Planet just a bit better than Lost Planet 3?

The Brews: E3 2012, Ubisoft teases brand new IP “Watch_Dogs”

My mind was blown when I watched this trailer.  Honestly, I was a bit underwhelmed with E3 press in general until the Ubisoft presentations and then Watch_Dogs was just the icing on the cake for me.  I’m definitely getting a bit of a Bladerunner vibe with some cyber-punk mixed in.  Check it out and see what Ubisoft has in store for you!

The Brews: Humble Indie Bundle V

The new humble indie bundle was released a few days ago.  With titles like Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP, Limbo, Psychonauts, Amnesia, and being able to name your own price with profits going to charity, this is a difficult offer to pass up (I know I couldn’t).  And oh yeah, they throw in Bastion if you pay over the average.  There’s 10 days left to purchase it.  What are you waiting for? Get it now and get it here

The Brews: Skyrim Dawnguard DLC Official Trailer

I’ve only recently had the time to dive down the rabbit hole (does that sound dirty?) that is Skyrim, but I’m sure after some time spent in its winter wonderland I’ll be itching to do some vampire slaying in this first wave of official DLC for Bethesda’s hit game Skyrim.

The Brews: E3 2012 Dishonored Gameplay Trailer

Ever wanted to play an Assassin’s Creed game first-person? Like old-school sci-fi from the wonderful world of H.G. Wells?  I’m not sure if either of these questions accurately describe what I just saw in this trailer, but if your answer to either of them is ‘yes,’ then you may be like me and dig this sick new gameplay trailer from Bethesda’s new title Dishonored.

The Brews: E3 2012 New Tomb Raider Trailer

An exclusive trailer for the new Tomb Raider game hit the interwebz a few days ago. While the idea of a prequel story sounds pretty cool, I’m not sure how I feel about Lara Croft sounding as whiny as she does in this trailer.  Isn’t she supposed to be a badass?
